Kate Smith was born and grew up in Columbia, Missouri. In early 1940, Kate Smith, a fiercely patriotic American, and the biggest star on radio, was deeply worried about her country.

She asked Irving Berlin if he could give her a song that would re-ignite the spirit of American patriotism and faith. He said he had a song that he had written in 1917, but never used it.

Now, in 2011 unemployment is high, the economy is shaky, inflation is nipping at our pocket books, the stock market is gyrating wildly and we are again deeply worried about our country. Hopefully we all can find our spirit lifting up to hear the original singer and the song.
