Happy Cinco de Mayo.
The day’s festivities begin with an announcement from singer Beyoncé that she will be releasing a cover version of “God Bless America.” Beyoncé initially sang the song when President Barack Obama was elected in 2008, but it never made an official release.
CNN will have the privilege of premiering the song tonight, May 5, on Piers Morgan Tonight at 9pm. According to the former reality star (The Celebrity Apprentice), the song is “stunning.”
The song will be made available on iTunes and the singer’s official website by the end of the week. Profits from the “God Bless America” cover will go to the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund.
Here is an earlier version of the song:
