The last weekend in May, Memorial Day, is not just a day to celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer barbecues and pool parties, but it’s a special day to commemorate the heroic deeds of all our U.S. Military soldiers who died in service.
To help us remember all of those who have given their lives to keep America the land of the free and the home of the brave, we’ve made a list of our Top 10 Pop & Hip-Hop Ballads That Honor Our War Heroes And Fallen Soldiers for this Memorial Day.
The list includes artists like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mariah Carey[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eminem[/lastfm], and[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Beyonce[/lastfm].

Without the heroic actions of our service men and women who have cast their fears aside–including the possible fear of death–we might not have the strength to carry on as a country:
And then a hero comes along/With the strength to carry on/And you cast your fears aside/And you know you can survive/So when you feel like hope is gone/Look inside you and be strong/And you’ll finally see the truth/That a hero lies in you
