About the Author
Irving Berlin (1888-1989) was the most prolific songwriter of the twentieth century. He composed over twelve hundred songs, including "White Christmas," "Blue Skies," and "Alexander's Ragtime Band." "God Bless America" was first introduced in 1938 and continues to inspire this nation at times of triumph and tragedy. The Berlin estate donates all royalties from the song to the God Bless America Fund to benefit America's youth.
