Happy Independence Day Patriots,
Let us pause today from our serious business of restoring America (Liberty) and rejoice in our wonderful American Experiment. Perhaps in words such as, “My country ‘tis of thee, Sweet land of Liberty.” Let us not forget that, while proud citizens of every country can sing, “My country ‘tis of thee,” only the American patriot can sing, “Sweet land of Liberty.”
But, steal a few minutes to celebrate the birth of America and Liberty in music such as these offerings.
Our National Anthem, O Say Can You See, done at its best by the incomparable Whitney Houston.
The great Jazz singer Ray Charles sings America the Beautiful as though it was written just for him. I love to sing along. You can too, go ahead.
Here is the original presentation of the Irving Berlin rewritten God Bless America by the incomparable Kate Smith in 1938 (Ronald Reagan makes an appearance).
Hear My Country ‘Tis of Thee while being treated to great American scenes including a pre-911 Manhattan.
Of course God Bless the USA is done here by Lee Greenwood. You must watch and listen. This will inspire you for the work ahead!
Of course we need John Phillip Sousa and Stars and Stripes Forever. This is great.
Let us finish with Chet Atkins incredibly doing Stars and Stripes Forever. You will be delighted.
