music vera lynn
From World War 2 Britain - Vera Lynn

Vera Lynn was the most beloved singer of World War 2. Here she sings some songs that were the most loved by the soldiers fighting in WW2 and most loved by the people on the "home front" during the war. Let us not forget the lessons of this war or it will happen again.

We'll Meet Again - This 1st song shows how deeply Vera was loved by the soldiers fighting the war. Full Song Version with Pictures

White Cliffs of Dover - This is about the British fighter pilots that flew in blue colored planes and saved Britain from invasion by the Germans, and about the hopes of the war ending so life could return to normal. The Air Battle of Britain lasted from July 1940 to Sept. 1940. Version with Actual Blue Birds.

Lili Marlene - A song of lovers in WW2 and how precious each moment together was.

When the Lights Go On Again (All over the World) - Hope & Prayers for a future.

Wartime Footage of Vera Lynn visiting "front line" soldiers in 1944.

elvis presley if i can dream
From the USA
Elvis Presley (1968 Comeback Special) Singing:
If I Can Dream

     Very powerful and dramatic performance by Elvis in this TV show.
     Most people do not know that even though Elvis was known as the "King of Rock and Roll" that he almost always insisted on singing a Gospel song at his performances. If the organizers of an event objected Elvis told them that he would not perform without it. Elvis always won. This God believing young man from Mississippi was far more than most people realize. He also served his country in uniform when drafted into the army after he was already famous.
