US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel (L) and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey hold a press briefing at the Pentagon in Washington, DC, August 21, 2014. Hagel warned that the Islamic State is more than a traditional 'terrorist group' and better armed, trained and funded than any recent threat. 'They marry ideology and a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well funded. This is beyond anything we have seen,' Hagel told reporters.

Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has some serious musical chops.

Yesterday during an emotional ceremony honoring families of America's fallen heroes, Dempsey uplifted the crowd karaoke-style, singing to Andy Grammer's 'Keep Your Head Up". The event, hosted by TAPS or the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors was held in Arlington Virginia.



But Dempsey's performances didn't end there. Right after, he took to visiting children who had also lost their family members in military service, singing animal songs with the Good Grief Camp.
