Wow! Here's a patriotic piece you'll want to sing over and over. And after your audience hears it, they'll want to hear it again, too! It's that inspirational.
The melody and lyrics of the piece are easy and repetitious enough for most students to learn and remember. And since the second part and the divisi part at the end are optional, it is quite usable as a unison piece. The recorded accompaniment tracks really drive this song. The sound will definitely inspire your singers. There are even some fantastic fireworks sound effects at the end of the song that will make everyone cheer. And since options are key, there is also a track on the recording without the fireworks (in case you want to provide your own). (from Music K-8, Vol. 17, No. 5)
