Beyonce’s Cover of God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood

Posted on the 03 July 2011 by Steveliu @charitablegift

God bless the USA by BeyonceLee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” has become a modern day national anthem of sorts. It’s a great tune with really meaningful lyrics, but admittedly, there are times when I would like a gentler, more subtle rendition than the one Mr. Greenwood usually gives.

Enter Beyoncé, of all people, to fulfill my wish. She recently released the single God Bless the USA, which features an absolutely beautiful and moving rendition of the modern day classic. It has the power of Greenwood’s original, and yet also has a bit of “heart and soul” as only Beyonce can provide.

100% of proceeds from this song will go to New York Police & Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund (, a charity that has helped the families of fallen first responders for 25 years. These brave policemen and firefighters represent the very best of this nation, who put down their lives and give their all for their fellow citizens. This Independence Day, in addition to purchasing this song, remember to donate generously to help the families which they’ve left behind far too soon.
