In the song "For You," Keith Urban honors the heroic acts and sacrifices of the Navy SEALs in the line of duty. The song, which appeared in the film Act of Valor, earned Keith a Golden Globe nomination.

In his ongoing commitment to the SEALs, Keith presented a check for $300,000 to the Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF) backstage at his San Diego show. The donation comes from Keith's share of publishing royalties on "For You."

According to NSF's CEO, Keith's donation will be applied to programs for 120 SEALs and their families, as well as a summer camp for 500 Naval Special Warfare children.

“I have a deep appreciation for the special bond that all of these families feel towards each other and for the commitment that they have made to all of us,” said Keith in a statement. “The NSF reminds us to acknowledge the importance and sacrifice that is made each and every day by those serving ‘down range’ as well as their loving families.”
