Former Pussycat Doll, Kaya Jones entertained the Soldiers assigned to Contingency Operating Station Endeavor, Iraq, Feb. 24, 2010.

Jones and her dance team danced and sang for an appreciative audience for over an hour, before signing autographs and posing for pictures with their audience.

"We love you," said Jones. "We miss you back home. We thank you for what you are doing out here."

Jones also gave away free music from her new album and spent time interacting with the troops at the COS Endeavor dining facility during lunch.

"It was a pleasure to perform for all of you guys," said Jones.

Soldiers cheered throughout the show, encouraging the singer and talking her into an encore.

"It was fun to get a break, hang out and cut loose a little bit," said Spc. Dillon Fisher, Company C, 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division. "She was very talented."

Fisher was one of three Soldiers who got to compete in a dance-off on stage with Jones's dance team.

"Even though I didn't win, I think everyone knows who was the best dancer up there," said Fisher with a smile. "I'm not saying I was robbed, but I have no idea how I didn't win."
