But before you watch, here’s the story of the song.
Kate was very patriotic so it hurt her to see Americans depressed and afraid of what the next day would bring.
She wanted to do something to cheer them up, so she went to the famous American song-writer, Irving Berlin
When she described what she was looking for, he said he had just the song for her.
She and Irving Berlin were not sure how the song would be received by the public,
Any profits would go to the Boy Scouts of America .
The video begins with Kate coming into the radio studio with the orchestra and an audience.
Back in 1940, when Kate Smith went looking for a song to raise the spirits of her fellow Americans,I doubt she realized just how successful the results would be for her fellow Americans during those years of hardship and worry, and for many generations of Americans to follow.
NOW HERE IS HOW “GOD BLESS AMERICA ” SHOULD BE SUNG!
