Truly a patriotic song frequently rendered across the country, “God Bless the USA” is the best song that you can ever hear today. Being an American citizen is an honor and pride that we share with our brothers and sisters. In fact, the United States of America is a melting pot of different races, languages, colors, and cultures.
“God Bless the USA” was conceived by Lee Greenwood to show his patriotism as an American. Proud as ever, Greenwood perfectly sang his heart out. The emotion that exuded in this masterpiece is truly genuine and heartfelt. Interestingly, there are a number of artists who have covered this song, but it is not as pure and innocent as the rendition of this sweet young lady.
Wearing a blue dress with a matching bow, Marleigh Miller moved the audience to tears after her tasty cover of the song. Miller, who is just eight years old, charmed the crowd of veterans and their families. As a matter of fact, she dedicated her performance to all the living heroes who have sacrificed everything for our nation.
As the song progressed, the veterans formed a circle and held each other’s hands. Miller then went into the center. She belted the song, not missing a single beat. Indeed, it was a fantastic thing to watch knowing that she’s just a pint size.
As the following lyrics drew near, the crowd lifted their hands in the air and sang together with Miller.
And I gladly stand up
Next to you and defend her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA…
