Former U.S. Navy SEAL and country music artist Pete Scobell will perform and speak at the annual Points of Light Conference on Volunteering and Service and 25th Anniversary Tribute this week in Houston, TX. Festivities began today (Monday, Oct. 19), and Scobell will perform tonight at the Welcome to Texas Celebration, Tuesday’s 25th Anniversary Tribute and Wednesday morning’s Military Forum.
Pete Scobell already has a long narrative with many chapters – a celebrated Navy SEAL, competitive skier and athlete, mountain climber, an inspiration and outspoken advocate. The release of a country album could be taken as just another chapter in the life of a habitual success addict.
The truth is a guitar has been Scobell’s only constant companion as he’s traveled the world on more adventures than most people have in a full lifetime. His debut release of “Walkin a Wire” represents the culmination of a lifelong dream.
“I didn’t just wake up one morning and decide I want to be a musician,” Scobell said. “It’s something I’ve done my whole life. My mom was a music teacher. She died when I was 10 months old and she left all her instruments. That’s how I learned how to play. I was always trying to feel closer to her.”
“I’m really just focused on making good music that I enjoy playing and that’s meaningful to me,” Scobell said. “Everybody has life lessons, you just learn them in different places. Some of mine happen to be from my experiences in the military. That story might get people to listen to it one time, but this is a passion of mine and I’ve put so much time and effort into creating this album, this music and this sound. I want the music to really speak for itself.”
“I am extremely honored to be part of such a important event and work with this great organization. This conference on Volunteering and Service brings thousands of people together to take action and make positive changes in the world.”
From the White House twenty-five years ago, President Bush gave voice and direction to a movement that’s steadily grown ever since, saving and changing countless lives for the better in this country and around the world.
Today, Points of Light is the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service – mobilizing millions of people each year to take action and change the world.
