A MUSICAL TRIBUTE & PATRIOTIC CELEBRATION
“IRVING BERLIN SALUTES AMERICA” AT PGA CENTER
No one’s music better exemplifies the culture, mood, history and patriotism of America than Irving Berlin, long considered one of the greatest songwriters in American history. “Irving Berlin Salutes America,” has all the ingredients of a show that makes us proud to be an American.
One of the most prolific composers in American history, Irving Berlin’s music has entertained millions since his first song, "Marie From Sunny Italy” was published in 1907. His music served as a barometer for much of the 20th century. It offered hope to a nation in bleak times, and rejoiced in the good things. It also provided anthems for American culture, including such as standards “White Christmas,” “Easter Parade,“ "God Bless America,' and “There’s No Business Like Show Business.”
Berlin’s music has also served as an inspiration to U. S. military personnel for generations. He was drafted into the U. S. army and was discharged in 1919. While serving in the army, he wrote the timeless classic, “Oh How I Hate to Get up In The Morning,” and “This Is The Army Mr. Jones,” which brought more than 10 million dollars, which was donated to the Army Relief Fund. Other songs are “Blue Skies,” “ Cheek To Cheek,” “Always,” and more.
