Award-winning jazz singer/composer Kathy Sanborn releases a very special "America the Beautiful" for freedom lovers everywhere
"America the Beautiful" releases worldwide October 9, 2020, and is available for pre-order now on iTunes
By: Kathy Sanborn
With the world undergoing an unprecedented time due to upheaval and lockdowns, Sanborn wanted to create her own vocal interpretation of the beloved patriotic song. Her goal was to bring the song alive for the modern era, where it could inspire and motivate listeners to trust that better days are coming. And just in time for what some are saying is the most important election in the nation's history, "America the Beautiful" is reborn.
Upon hearing a piano rendition by the highly acclaimed Vahagn Stepanyan, Sanborn sprang into the recording studio. Says Sanborn, "Vahagn gave the song the reverence that it deserves as an American classic. His piano arrangement and performance of 'America the Beautiful' became the foundation for me to perform the song with heart, soul, and respect for the patriotic tradition."
Besides the talented Vahagn Stepanyan, Sanborn is joined on "America the Beautiful" by trumpeter Wayne Ricci. Produced by Matthew Shell and mastered by Erik Fredriksen, this modern version of the famous classic will serve to inspire a new generation of freedom-loving people around the globe.
