Happy 4th of July!

This is my favorite patriotic song. I've played it for years in orchestras and sung it at church. (Grant it, I could probably sing the 1st and 2nd violin parts better than some of the words:)) I was really lucky to have a large dose of patriotism ingrained in me at a young age as well as being able to see much of the country. Have a great Independence Day and get out and do something or see something you haven't!

AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL (as performed by Ray Charles)

This is my absolutely favorite patriotic song. I cry every time. The words are so amazing. The 'heroes proved' verse is my favorite.
This is a nice version.
