We hope that you will enjoy John Wayne’s rendition of ‘God Bless America’ as much as we do.

 

When it comes to truly American actors, it’s hard to think of anyone who represents our beautiful country better than John Wayne. The Duke was a proud American throughout his whole life, and unlike many celebrities of today, he wasn’t afraid to show it. In 1970, he hosted a variety show to celebrate the USA’s history. It featured tons of big-name celebrities of the time, including Johnny Cash, Lucille Ball, Glenn Campbell, and many more. If watching them all sing “God Bless America” doesn’t make you feel proud to be an American, nothing will!

This definitely isn’t the first time that Mr. Wayne has showed us his American pride. He once broke down the entire Pledge of Allegiance to remind us what the words we’re saying every day at the beginning of school really mean. It’s incredible how a man who was a movie star so many years ago can still have such a huge impact on our country today.

It’s such a shame that we don’t have any actors like the Duke today. The good news is that not all hope is lost— Jurassic World star Chris Pratt was recorded teaching his young son the Pledge of Allegiance, so hopefully he will be the first of many modern stars who aren’t ashamed to say they’re proud to be American. I bet John Wayne would be very happy with that indeed.

Did this performance give you chills? If you’re proud to be from the USA, SHARE this video with everyone you know!
