'Song Bird of the South' Debuts on Stamp
Her signature song, "God Bless America," has been considered America's unofficial national anthem. Today, Kate Smith, America's "Song Bird of the South," took center stage on a U.S. postage stamp as one of the nation's most popular female singers.
The stamp art duplicates artwork created for the cover of a CD titled, "Kate Smith: The Songbird of the South." The artwork was based on a photograph of Smith taken in the 1960s.
