How To Play God Bless America

Patriotic Song: God Bless America l LadyDpiano.com

This is a very cool arrangement of a popular song by Irving Berlin. It's pretty famous. In fact, it's one of my aunt's favorites. Wherever you are this holiday weekend, I hope your hearts are filled with thanksgiving and praise for this great country of ours. Keep praying for one another and sing loudly!
