Country singer Luke Pell has donated his $25,000 winnings from "Celebrity Family Feud" to the nonprofit organization, CreatiVets.
Pell, an alum from the twelfth season of The Bachelorette, is also an Army veteran, so in an effort to commemorate Veterans Day this Friday, he donated his winning to the CreatiVets organization. The mission of CreatiVets is to help disabled veterans with the opportunity to use art, music and creative writing to address the psychological and emotional needs that arise from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
This May, Pell was a contestant on ABC's Celebrity Family Feud, which was hosted by Steve Harvey, and his team chose to donate to the CreatiVets charity when they won the $25,000 prize.
When Pell attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, he was a starting safety for the Army Black Knights. After he graduated, the country singer served in the U.S. Army for five more years, when he was stationed in Afghanistan. During his tenure at West Point, he found an escape from the stress and demands of every day life thanks to his music and guitar.
Pell lives in Nashville, where he is working on his career as a country artist. He is in the studio working on his debut project with country producer Ash Bowers. His debut album is expected to be released in January of 2018.
His single "Pretty Close" garnered a rave review from Digital Journal earlier this year.
