American House Choir Honors 9/11 with Students

In honor of 9/11’s eleventh anniversary, the American House Choir took part in a memorable intergenerational program for all involved. Members of the American House Choir joined 4th and 5th graders from Holy Family Regional School in Rochester Hills where they conducted a patriotic performance for students. Have a listen through the video below:

American House Choir members also sang a tune with the students called, “American Tears,” a song that honors all who have served our country and are currently serving.

Here are the lyrics to this special song that also honored the victims and heroes of 9/11.

American Tears Lyrics:

Sometimes I think about America. About her struggles through the years.
I think of people who, did what they had to do with the strength to act their fears.
Sometimes I think about America. About her future and her past.
I know I’m blessed to be, living in Liberty. In a land where freedom will last.

For the heroes. For the patriots. For the soliders. For all the pioneers.
I will always be an American, and I’ll always cry American Tears.

Sometimes I think about America, about her people’s legacy
I wonder if they knew, that what they had to do
Would be known throughout history.
Sometimes I think about America. About her pain along the way
I know it had to be for our democracy. For the world we live in today.

For the heroes. For the patriots. For the soldiers. For all the pioneers.
I will always be an American, and I’ll always cry American Tears.

For the heroes. For the patriots. For the soliders. For all the pioneers.
I will always be an American, and I’ll always cry American Tears.

Yes, I will always be, an American…and I’ll always cry American Tears.
