Beyonce Releases ‘God Bless The USA’ For NY Police & Fire Widows & Children…

Beyonce has released her version of  ‘God Bless The USA’, which she first recorded back in 2008 for the presidential campaign of Barack Obama, but never released it. Profits from this song will go to the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund, and will be available for purchase on itunes and on Beyonce’s website.

You can catch the official premiere of the song tonight on Piers Morgan on CNN at 9pm ET.

Piers tweeted a message from Beyonce:

“We were all affected by the tragedies of 9/11 and continue to keep the families who lost loved ones close to our hearts. “Lee Greenwood, the writer of the song, is also donating his proceeds to help the 9/11 families.” Thank you Piers Morgan and CNN for helping to get the message out to everyone about this.”

President Obama also paid a visit to Ground Zero this morning to pay respects to the victims of 9/11 and meet with the families, and hopefully offered some closure with the recent killing of Osama Bin Laden.

The items will be available in H&M’s Divided department & online April 26, with 25% of sales donated to the charity Designers Against AIDS (DAA) & various other international HIV/AIDS prevention projects.
