    • Keith Chagall - SAIL ON BETSY ROSS

    In homage to the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, singer-songwriter Keith Chagall has penned the song "Sail on Betsy Ross" as an ode to that tragic day in Dallas, Texas.

    The catchy Beatles-esque pop tribute salutes the Kennedy era by taking us on a journey through tumultuous and stimulating times in American history.

    Chagall explains, "'Sail on Betsy Ross' is a hopeful song that reflects on an iconic president who showed that extraordinary things could be accomplished as a nation when we work together. And it shines a light on the spirit and resiliency of great American women like Betsy Ross, Jacqueline Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Diana Nyad, who continue to inspire."

    The video for "Sail on Betsy Ross" boasts emotional images from the fateful Dallas motorcade on November 22, 1963, to the Atlantic crossing of a Pilgrim ship, to Betsy Ross sewing the American flag, to President and Mrs. Kennedy with Caroline and John Jr., to the Washington funeral procession of JFK's casket, to the moon landing and up through today's Dream Act Immigration reform.

    It's like an American history lesson.
