Lee Greenwood Reacts To School Pulling God Bless The USA

Lee Greenwood has reacted to the news that a NYC school pulled his hit "God Bless The USA" from a kindergarten graduation ceremony.

Webster PR sent over the following statement from Greenwood: I wrote 'God Bless the USA' about the love I have for this country and the struggle we have gone through to remain free. Our country was founded on the principle that it welcomes people of all cultures and gives them the same rights we have as citizens.

However, I feel compelled to echo the faith or our forefathers who all believed in God and a respect of a higher authority. Personally, denying the children of PS 90 to sing "God Bless the USA," offends me as a Christian.

My song is about hope, faith, spirit and pride. How could that be wrong on any level?"
