Decades ago, Americans were blessed with a very special rendition of “God Bless America.” An incredible lineup of talent sang the patriotic song. Do you remember hearing it when it came out in 1970? If you missed it, you need to take a listen below.
John Wayne starts out the song that was aired on television. By the end of the song, you can see all of the artists standing on a giant United States of America stage. It looks truly beautiful. It was actually the closing scene from John Wayne’s “Swing Out Sweet Land” 1970 TV Special.
