About the Victory Belles

The Victory Belles of The National WWII Museum in New Orleans are a delightful vocal trio who serenade audiences around the world. The music of the 1940s brought hope and joy to our GIs and those on the Home Front alike, and the Victory Belles keep that tradition alive in rich, three-part harmony. Their repertoire includes all the treasured gems of the WWII era plus patriotic classics, including a musical salute to each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. 

These talented and dedicated young women have honored our veterans and active duty military in song in hundreds of performances nationally and internationally. Among these are the Ellis Island Medal of Honor Ceremony, USO Galas in Japan and Hawaii, National Anthems at NFL, MLB and NBA games, the USO Guam Six Star Salute and on board the USS Wasp and USS Midway. They have also performed with military bands including West Point Military Academy, symphony orchestras, countless VA Hospitals and prestigious corporate events for The Boeing Company, J.P. Morgan and the Boy Scouts of America, among others.
