It’s no surprise that when it comes to patriotic music, The Tabernacle Choir is often at the top of any search list. It’s a large part of the reason that Ronald Reagan gave the Choir the nickname “America’s Choir.” The 40th President of the United States said in 1981, “At my first inauguration as president of the United States, I wanted very much to reignite the fires of liberty and re-inspire the American spirit. And no one sings the anthems of America quite like The Tabernacle Choir.”
