Versus to Air 'God Bless America' Before Tonight's Flyers-Bruins Game

Versus to Air 'God Bless America' Before Tonight's Flyers-Bruins Game

Per Darren Rovell, "CONFIRMED: Versus Will Take Kate Smith's 'God Bless America' recording live tonight before Flyers-Bruins game."

Fantastic news for those of us watching tonight's game at home from the couch. Now we can all share in the horripilations that Lauren Hart and Kate Smith are sure to cause. Should be an extremely powerful moment for not only Flyers fans, but freedom-loving people everywhere. ProHockeyTalk has some quotes from Lauren Hart on what singing this song on a night like tonight means to her.

Personally, I've always been surprised that anthems are not always televised. Why is this only an in-person thing? Regardless, this is great to hear.

Here's a version from last year's Stanley Cup Finals:
