In response to Senate Resolution 458, which was picked up by the House as House Resolution 793; Voices United for America is proud to announce the release of its multi-lingual recording of the Star-Spangled Banner. The song made its world premiere on Next Big Hit New Music Mix in Vol. 118 on May 16th, 2006.

The recording was produced in response to Senate Resolution 458, which was picked up by the House as House Resolution 793.

The title of the resolution as stated in the Library of Congress is "A resolution affirming that statements of national unity, including the National Anthem, should be recited or sung in English." This resolution was passed by the senate by unanimous consent and without amendment. It currently sits before the House Judiciary Committee.

The website, YourNationalAnthem.com also has links to the Government’s Bill Tracker, Links to write your Congressperson and an online petition in opposition to the bill.

Voices United for America finds the proposed resolutions inconsistent with a fundamental American right, free speech. They can also be seen as depreciating the rich and diverse cultural heritage of immigrants, the ancestors of many Americans, who founded, developed, and have defended this nation. The resolutions fail to recognize that one of the country’s greatest strengths is the diversity of the populace.

The creation of this recording was not motivated by partisanship. Through the project Voices United for America exercise our most basic freedoms and demonstrate that people of all backgrounds can work together harmoniously to create a thing of beauty.

Our National Anthem is a powerful and beautiful statement regardless of the language in which it is recited or sung. Immigrants arriving in our country today seek the same freedoms and liberties as did our forefathers. The talents and diversity of people of all backgrounds do not diminish nor destroy American values, rather they add color and texture to the American Portrait.

Singing the Star-Spangled Banner in ten languages, including English, Voices United for America is an ensemble of ten New York area musicians: Chris Andersson, Danny Katz, Dave Hall, John Raymond Pollard, Lydia Greenberg, Michael Gilboe, Stella Wixson, Steve Sandberg, Susana Dé, and Vlada Tomova.

Voices United for America grant media outlets the right to play this song without any sync fees as long as it is used to raise awareness of Senate Resolution 458 and House Resolution 793.

The song can be downloaded for free at www.YourNationalAnthem.com
