My Kind of Americana!
Quite often, I come across a video, article, story or movie clip that is about a piece of America and
Americana - that deserves to be seen or read. This is where you can come to enjoy it - to remember about the America that too many people don't seem to
hear about very much anymore.
If you would like to contribute something, email it to me and I will look it over. No politics please, just good old Americana! Thanks!
TODD ALLEN HERENDEEN is a wonderful singer who is being invited all over the country to sing this song, "My Name Is America", written by Kurt Orning in the wake of what happend on 9/11.
I love his voice. His vibrato has shades of Elvis at the end of each line and you can understand every word (something that Frank Sinatra would really appreciate)!
Todd, when The Americana Stars Memorial is completed, I hope you will sing this at the opening presentation! No pressure, though :-)
My Name Is America
RED SKELTON was a comedian and actor who created a video in 1969 (before they were called videos) about the true meaning of the words of The Pledge of Allegiance.

GENE KELLY - What a classic! Did you know that he had to change 8 times into 8 different suits to complete this number? Back then, they were made of wool
and they kept shrinking in the water! What a trouper. He also danced with a fever of 103 degrees! Debbie Reynolds was no slouch, either!
Singin'in the Rain
ROBIN WILLIAMS - He is so funny! One of his earlier routines, this was done in 1982. Robin portrays the American flag in "I Love Liberty," a two-hour television special created by
Norman Lear. Robin Williams as the American Flag
THE STORY OF "TAPS" - We all know the song, but not everyone knows who wrote the words and music. There is alot of information online, but I like this commentary
written December 12, 2010 by Lt. Col. Thomas J. Finneran, Commander, 95th Reconnaissance Squadron of the U.S. Air Force.
