'God Bless The USA' Performance From Gyth Rigdon On The Voice

The Voice contestant Gyth Rigdon performs a soul-stirring rendition of ‘God Bless The USA’ during the semi-finals of the competition.


Gyth is a member of Team Blake and he’s been impressing the crowds all season long. Today, he’s taking an American classic and putting his own, personal touch on the iconic song.

‘And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.’

‘God Bless The USA’ was originally released in 1984 by Lee Greenwood. He always felt the urge to write a patriotic song and when the shooting down of Korean Air Lines Flight 007 occurred, Lee knew the time was right to unite the nation.

It rose on the country charts, but it wasn’t until the attacks on September 11th that the song became a cultural phenomenon. It doesn’t get much better than listening to someone sing about their pride for their country and that’s exactly what Gyth is doing today.

It’s always such an amazing display of respect and patriotism. This is definitely one of the most iconic patriotic songs of the modern era and it was a perfect compliment to Gyth’s incredible vocals. He is definitely a serious contender.

Do you think this young man has what it takes to go all the way?
