God Bless America by Martina McBride
Chris Matthews gets a chill up his leg from listening to Barack Obama give a speech.
I get a chill over my whole body when I hear such a beautiful, heartwarming, and emotional rendition of this song.
Martina McBride sings at the 2002 Rose Bowl Parade, a short time after the 9/11 attacks. I sat down and watched this video, and at the end I had tears rolling down my face. Not just watery eyes, but tears.
And I really like and appreciate her rendition of the song. The band backup was excellent, and her singing was very emotional and appropriate. She didn't add undue embellishment that's indicative of contemporary singers, if you know what I mean. And of course, she didn't alter the lyrics!
It's regrettable that there are so many Americans today who feel no connection to this nation or their fellow American, feel no loyalty or pride in this the greatest nation on God's Green Earth, or any sense that it's worth defending or fighting for, or even a sense that "The American Way" is right & just. I pity them, and I hope they will soon find the same feeling of patriotism and appreciation for this nation that I feel.
This is a re-posting of this video that I found from someone else. That user chose to turn message adding off because people were discussing politics there instead of music. But I invite both.
Keep in mind, anti-American messages that I feel are written with intent to lie, insult, to spread propaganda & lies, to unjustly accuse or condemn, or to merely place message of malice will be removed and you will be blocked. I have zero tolerance for you on THIS video.
God Bless America!
The Stars and Stripes Forever!
The "Star Spangled Banner" IS our national anthem!
In God We Trust!
One Nation, Under God!
