Mcall.com | ALLENTOWN, PA – They played a recording and video of “God Bless the USA” before Sunday’s IronPigs game, accompanied by FeFe doing an interpretive dance.
It was well done, but as it happens, I had just seen an even better rendition.
My Uncle Pete sent me a video last week of the Texas Tenors performing the same song, and it was terrific. Although we’re a little late for July 4, I thought I would share it with you today.
For me, at least, it roused some of the patriotic fervor that has been threatened by our ugly national politics. By the way, unlike the IronPigs version, the video included NO politicians, which I very much appreciated. And the Texas Tenors are really good.
UPDATE: Since posting this, I’ve learned that they’ll be performing at 8 p.m. Friday at the American Music Theatre in Lancaster. For tickets, go here.
Thank you to all of the brave men and women who have fought for and defended freedom around the world. God bless you & God Bless the USA, Marcus, JC and John The Texas Tenors
