Kate Smith! The celebrated singer and entertainer’s signature song, “God Bless America” (composed for her by Irving Berlin), has been called America’s unofficial national anthem. “This is the greatest song Irving Berlin has ever composed,” she pronounced after her first performance of it. “It will never die. Others will thrill to its beauty long after we are gone.”
