The song was written expressedly for Kate Smith by Irving Berlin..here she sings it publicly, for the first time;
This banning of Kate Smith, causes one to wonder. I never heard that she sang offensive songs...back in 1931..a different era for sure. However, Kate was a super patriot for all he adult life.
Who knows whether in her secret heart of hearts she did not seek and gain forgiveness for this error? I don't know..does anybody Know?
It leads me to wonder just when this fit of iconoclast rage will subside...and where will we find perfect, and sinless worthy of honor?
