Monday Song 7-4-16

Hi everyone! Happy 4th of July/Independence Day! America turns 240 years old today! I plan on running errands and getting together with my family. We’ll be having a barbecue later this afternoon. It’s supposed to reach 104 degrees today. Tomorrow it will reach 105! I’m LOVING my day off from work! 😀 Only 11 more days until I get to take another vacation! I’m not sure if I’m staying in El Paso or going somewhere close. In honor of Independence Day, here are some patriotic songs. I’ll be back shortly with more music and posts. Have a great rest of the day, everyone!   


  1. I wasn’t really a fan of Whitney Houston but… I have to give her a lot of credit for her rendition of the National Anthem. Thanks for checking it out! I’m glad you enjoyed!

  2. Lisa, that was so very beautiful! Goose bumps all over! I loved the Whitney Houston version best. She sang it so full of joy and excitement. It looked so natural and was powerful! Thank you so very much for sharing this with me. To me definitely the most beautiful version!

  3. I would like to have watched the Lady Gaga video but it’s been blocked. I clicked on it and a message came up that said it was blocked because of content owned by the NFL 😦 I can look for it on You Tube. She has a great voice.

  4. Ohh I didn’t know she sang America the Beautiful too, Erika! I’ll have to look for it. A lot of people sing it. I like the video to this version a lot. My three favorite versions of National Anthems so far are sang by Whitney Houston, Jennifer Hudson and now Lady Gaga.

  5. Wow, I only know America the Beautiful performed by Barbara Streisand. I love that song a lot… and how amazing Lady Gaga sang the anthem at the Super Bowl. I saw it, it was great!

  6. The Ray Charles version of “America The Beautiful” is a classic. Thanks for sharing, and I hope you have a great day today!
