Kate Smith’s ‘God Bless America’ is an original masterpiece

In 1943, Kate Smith performed one of the most beloved and revered renditions of ‘God Bless America.’ Her performance set the gold standard for all future singers wanting to create their version of the song.


With her powerful vocal stylings and the sincerity with which she sings every verse, Kate Smith was the perfect performer to deliver a sensational and original rendition of the Irving Berlin classic.

Not only was her singing ability on full display, but she was backed by a full band, with the instrumentals serving as a fitting background to her incredible singing abilities.
