Favorite rendition of God Bless America?

I’ve been listening to Mark Levin a lot recently (since he comes on after Sean Hannity). They always play the Martina McBride version of God Bless America and it has became my favorite.

For reference:

Kate Smith
Céline Dion
Martina McBride
Couldn’t find the Connie Francis version…

Kate Smith’s is so “strong.” The others are somewhat mushy, IMO.

There’s a great story about Kate Smith singing that song at all hours of the day or night for the shiploads of soldiers headed off to WWII.
