Kate Smith was a recipient of the Presidents' Medal of Freedom, the highest award to an American civilian. She was a legendary performer starting with the early part of the century. Her version of the song was used in the late 60s by the team to spark interest in the anthem. The team won and it continued with four live performances (three wins in huge games) among many recorded versions.

It is now performed as a duet with Lauren Hart.
