Not to be a hater, but did she sing it live? I don’t think so.

She sang “Purple mountain majesties”. The correct lyrics are: “Purple mountain’s majesty”.

I thought the singing was beautiful. A review of “America the Beautiful: and Other Poems” by Ms. Katharine Lee Bates, copyright 1911 show the words to “America the Beautiful” include “purple mountain majesties”.

I expected her to belt it out but was disappointed. Normally I get choked up when I hear this song, but was left flat. No emotions stirred by her rendition. I can’t even remember it now. Definitely not Kate Smith!
