Kate Smith singing God Bless America before a hockey game in 1975. Smith, who died in 1986, was one of the most popular singers of her time. She recorded almost 3,000 songs during her career, according to her obituary in The New York Times, but was most closely associated with God Bless America. The song was written by Irving Berlin during World War I but was first performed by Smith on her radio show in 1938. Starting in 1969, the Philadelphia Flyers hockey team began playing Smith’s God Bless America, substituting it for The Star-Spangled Banner before games. Smith also performed the song live at many Flyers games, including the one in which the team won its first Stanley Cup in 1974. Her association with the team became so strong that the Flyers erected a statue of the singer in front of their arena in 1987.

Kate Smith - The Star Spangled Banner
On Friday, the Flyers said Smith’s God Bless America recording had been removed from their library. The New York Yankees had made a similar move earlier in the week. The Yankees suspended use of Smith’s recording during the seventh-inning stretch amid conflicting claims about several of her songs, including a 1939 song That’s Why the Darkies Were Born. The tune originated in the 1931 Broadway revue George White’s Scandals, and was considered satire at the time. That led to her performing the song several times before games in the 1970s. A year after her 1986 death, the team erected the statue.
