ABOUT THE VIDEO & SONG:
Take a moment to watch virtuoso ukulele player Jake Shimabukuro perform “America the Beautiful” at Garden of the Gods Park near Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs.
Katharine Lee Bates wrote America the Beautiful first as a poem which was originally published in the Fouth of July edition of the church periodical The Congregationalist in 1895. Bates was only 33 years old at the time when she traveled to the top of Pike’s Peak, pictured here, which inspired her to write it.
