Shelton and Kelly Clarkson open The Warrior Games

  Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton had a good time last night for a good cause. The two singers took the stage Friday evening to kick off the opening ceremonies of the warrior games in Chicago.

  In the eighth year of the warrior games, this is the first year that the festivities have been played outside of the base. This year’s events will take place at Soldier Field, the United Center, McCormick Place.

  Athletes from all military branches, as well as the British and Australian armed forces, will participate. The games include shooting, sitting volleyball, track and wheelchair basketball.

  The athletes are not just those wounded in combat, but also include some with illnesses diagnosed while in service.
