Finding Your Favorite Patriotic Choir Music on YouTube

Everyone has a favorite patriotic song they love.  Since the birth of our country, schools across the nation have taught students music that speaks of love for country and those who serve. Children learn to sing, hum, clap, and even march with pride waving the nation’s flag in their hands as the music begins. 

Independence Day celebrations—like other days of national remembrance—have always included music as part of each program. In July 1776, the first public celebrations of the newly adopted Declaration of Independence included bell ringing and band music.

It has been said that patriotic songs are the “soundtrack of the American nation.” 

Irving Berlin, the great American composer of the much loved “God Bless America” song once said: “A patriotic song is an emotion.” It is true. Patriotic music helps uplift us during difficult times of crisis, strengthens our determination to preserve our nation when there is uncertainty, and builds assurances for each of us of who we can be as a nation.
