America the Beautiful" is an American patriotic song. The lyrics were written by Katharine Lee Bates, and the music was composed by church organist and choirmaster Samuel A. Ward at Grace Episcopal Church in Newark, New Jersey. At that time, the poem was titled "America" for publication.

At age 16, American heiress Clara Ward was married off to Belgian prince Joseph de Caraman-Chimay for a sizable dowry. It was a classic example of "cash for class," but the prince couldn't keep Ward tied down for long. Witness the tragic tales of Barbara Hutton, Clara Ward, and Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy, women of beauty, wealth, and power, who married into European nobility but ended up shunned by society, family, and the happy endings they hoped to achieve.

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist - Artist (Sample). 1. 30. Never A Man Spoke Like This Man. by Clara Ward & The Ward Singers. Never A Man Spoke Like This Man by Clara Ward & The Ward Singers. I have seen them perform in Church, Nightclubs, and other venues. I have never seen anyone sing a hymn or deliver the message like Clara Ward. This album presents her deliverance in both the studio and the club. Her interpretation of 'If I Could Help Somebody' has always inspired me in the way I live my life.

Clara Ward's mother, Gertrude Ward (1901–1981), founded the Ward Singers in 1931 as a family group, then called, variously, The Consecrated Gospel Singers or The Ward Trio, consisting of herself, her youngest daughter Clara, and her elder daughter, Willarene ("Willa"). Clara Ward recorded her first solo song in 1940, and continued accompanying the Ward Gospel Trio, thereafter. The Ward Singers began touring nationally in 1943, following a memorable appearance at the National Baptist Convention held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, earlier that year. Clara Ward was the first gospel singer to sing with a 100-piece symphony orchestra in the 1960s. They recorded an album together on the Verve label, V-5019, The Heart, The Faith, The Soul of Clara Ward, and the Ward Singers performed their music live in Philadelphia with the city's legendary symphony and the Golden Voices Ensemble.
