This spot was created to celebrate the freedoms enjoyed in America.


O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties,
Above the fruited plain.
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea,
From sea to shining sea.
America the beautiful.
From sea to shining sea.

Caring. Pass It On!

Pass It On®

This is a beautiful video

BoB Brown from Aurora CO AUGUST 9, 2014
Why is it, there are so many enterainers so ready to change the words and/or score of standards in stories, songs, life's lessons, etc. etc. I really think America the Beautiful is just fine with the words as originally written.

John Cardani-Trollinger from Des Moines, Iowa JULY 5, 2014
Today reminds us all of our sameness...not our differences. God bless the United States of America.

I think each and every one of your ads is an inspiration. They are beautifully shot and and acted out by regular folks in regular every day settings. We can all relate and take away what most resonates with us. Every day a new lesson. I am quite impressed. I check in daily for me dsoe of "medicine". Wonderful, thanks and God Bless!

Shelly from Paris, Texas APRIL 29, 2013

I love this rendition. I normally won't be moved by these type of songs, but this one caught my attention and caused me to rethink these type of songs.

Carole L. from Whitestone, NY OCTOBER 22, 2012
I love to hear America The Beautiful and I was totally inspired to find out more about this rendition sung by PlusOne. I will be passing this along for others to enjoy as much as I have, please have more TV stations run this beautiful video. Thank you.

I would love to know who sings this song and to let everyone know whatever I am doing I stop doing just to see this commercial, thank you and let me know the artist.

Caring is the right thing to do!

Britta from Georgia, USA SEPTEMBER 3, 2012
My husband just left for Afghanistan this morning and I saw this spot for the first time today ... just beautiful. Thank you.

suzy from salt lake city SEPTEMBER 1, 2012
Still nice to see this footage of my daughter when she was five year old. She is 19 now, and was just cast in another Foundation for a Better Life commercial. These always make me laugh or cry, even when she's not in them.

Hector Mayers from Toronto Ontario Canada AUGUST 16, 2012
I'm not an American, but every time I hear this rendition of America The Beautiful I get goose bumps.

Calypso from Birmingham FEBRUARY 27, 2012
Can anyone answer the question, WHO sings this beautiful rendition of this classic song singing our countries praises? I was so captured by the song that I couldn't even focus on the commercial itself.

Sarah G from Albany, New York FEBRUARY 19, 2012
In 6th grade I was in an essay contest that my teacher nominated me for. I had to write an essay on patriotism. My essay, as well as three kids from other classes, were picked out of the whole grade to go to the Elks Club competition where we competed against 4 other regional schools. I won first place for my school! This spot makes me think of that essay. God Bless America!

Jerry Uppling from USA - PA DECEMBER 2, 2011
I love these, why do I only see them on CBS Sports?

Glen from My Heart is in Hartford, WI NOVEMBER 17, 2011
"The National Anthem", "America", and "God Bless America". Three Great reasons to enjoy a ballgame! These songs tend to bring us together and remind us how lucky it is to be an American! God Bless everyone!

"Failed, Failed, Failed. and Then PERSISTENCE Pass It On." Thanks for your great inspirational poster and campaign DVD. I received from THE FOUNDATION FOR A BETTER LIFE just a few days after my request, we really found them to be a great resource to "MAKE A DIFFERENCE." For sure we gonna PASS THEM ON...

NOLA JULY 11, 2009
Just saw this commercial on Fox. Would LOVE to know who's singing America. I see many have asked....does anyone know??

Lee M. from Oakville, Canada APRIL 4, 2009
Couldn't stop watching until I viewed every video. Wow!! What a great teaching tool available to all teachers in the technical world. Bless your work!

Rommel from barbados JANUARY 17, 2009
Hey, you know what? These are so good that as head boy (student administrator) I have these spots showing in the morning before school starts. I think that all of these spots can change a lot of people or at least give them a sense of understanding. THANKS!

Jackie M from Sandy, Utah APRIL 10, 2008
What a great thing that you are doing! I have been inspired multiple times by your ads. Thanks for working to make the world a better place.

Bill G from New York State MARCH 30, 2008
When my soul and mind need recharging, I view these videos. It reminds me of how fortunate we are and how each of us can make a positive difference. I leave here with a sense of hope and purpose. Thank You.

Susan S. from S. St. Paul, Minnesota USA JANUARY 1, 2008
When I was a girl my father died. He was a WWII vet and a great patriot; this song was sung by the congregation at his funeral. I knew it was important then, but know I know why. It is a rich reminder that my dad was a great man because he believed in something greater than himself. He believed in his family, his community, and his country.

Joanna W. from Pasadena, California USA NOVEMBER 18, 2007
I think all of these are great. My grandparents taught me a lot about helping others, being patient, polite, and caring about everyone. When at home or at work, I try to do as much as I can and try to teach by example as well. Thank you for broadcasting these on the radio and TV.

Orlando E. from Miami, Florida USA NOVEMBER 12, 2007
This song is beautiful

Stan G. from Nashville, Tennessee, USA NOVEMBER 5, 2007

Angie H. from Columbus, Georgia USA OCTOBER 12, 2007
I cannot watch this clip without tearing up (over and over). You captured what I value and what I believe about America...and I will pass it on. Oh - and yes - who sings this? It is awesome. Thank you.

Josh M. from Syracuse, Utah, USA JULY 27, 2007
I love my country.

Peter S from Norfolk MA JULY 10, 2007
These spots are marvelous. I hope all who see them will encourage their local tv stations to run them. In these times of divisiveness and rancor, such a positive message of what we should be is so very needed

John from New york, USA JULY 9, 2007
