America's unofficial national anthems include "America the Beautiful," composed circa 1910 by combining lyrics from a poem written by English professor Katharine Lee Bates in 1893 with a tune adapted from a hymn composed by organist and choirmaster Samuel A. Ward in 1882. Here's Ray Charles' soulful rendition of this inspiring anthem, perhaps as he performed it at Disney World in 1986, which remains America's best-known popular version of it.
