"God Bless America" was written by Irving Berlin (May 11, 1888 - September 22, 1989). He was an American composer and lyricist, widely considered one of the greatest songwriters in American history. His music forms a great part of the Great American Songbook. Born in Imperial Russia, Berlin arrived in the United States at the age of five. He wrote hundreds of songs, many becoming major hits, which made him "a legend" before he turned thirty. During his 60-year career he wrote an estimated 1,500 songs, including the scores for 19 Broadway shows and 18 Hollywood films, with his songs nominated eight times for Academy Awards.

This blog links to Youtube to let us hear Sandra Faye "Sandi" Patty (born July 12, 1956) sing this wonderful patriotic song. She is an American Christian music singer, known for her wide vocal range and expressive flexibility which has led music critics to dub her "The Voice".
