Beyonce Debuting ‘God Bless the USA’ Charity Song
Beyonce is showing off her patriotism with the release of the song ‘God Bless the USA.’
The Lee Greenwood cover, which will profit 9/11 charities, makes an official debut on CNN show ‘Piers Morgan Tonight,’ on Thursday (May 5). The TV anchor announced the news via Twitter, along with a statement from the pop star. “We were all affected by the tragedies of 9/11 and continue to keep the families who lost loved ones close to our hearts,” Beyonce said. “Lee Greenwood, the writer of the song, is also donating his proceeds to help the 9/11 families.”
Beyonce originally performed the track during President Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, and now its TV debut comes days after the announcement that President Obama has finally concluded the search for Osama bin Laden. The president will visit Ground Zero in New York City on Thursday (May 5) to honor 9/11 victims.
The Texas singer has been very supportive of team Obama lately. This week she surprised middle school students in Harlem to perform dance moves from her ‘Move Your Body’ workout video, which is a part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! anti-obesity campaign.
Beyonce released the debut single ‘Run The World (Girls),’ from her fourth studio album last week, followed by a 20-second sneak preview of the new video on Wednesday (May 4). There has been no release date set for the highly anticipated album.
Hear the new track on ‘Piers Morgan Tonight,’ at 9PM on CNN.
