Patriotic song,God Bless America, an immediate hit and has been ever since.

Sung by Kate Smith as she introduces this song for the first time to America on Nov. 11, 1938.

She sang Irving Berlin's prayerful "God Bless America" for the first time on her radio show in 1938 and it became an overnight sensation, and is still sung to this day.

Note: Be sure to watch the entire video because at 4.21 there is a cameo performance by, yes, it really is-- Ronald Reagan.
