How did “Hope of America” start?
“Hope of America” was created by Kathy MacDonald in 1995 with the support of America’s Freedom Festival in Provo, Utah. Each year nearly 8,000 elementary school children from 100+ schools ( including charter, private, and home schools) come together and present songs of Hope, Service, and Patriotism.
What grade levels is “Hope of America” designed for?
The songs correlate with the 5th Grade American History Curriculum; (Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, Bill of Rights, Let’s Vote, Our Flag, etc) The program is primarily designed for upper elementary school aged children (grades 3-6) and also middle school age students. It can be performed by a single class, grade level, multiple upper grades, district or multiple districts. Because all students learn the song phrasing exactly the same way from the CD, it allows for bigger productions to easily take place with minimal rehearsals.
Can I make copies of your music (CDs, digital files, etc)?
Music royalties associated with this program are paid for through the minimal charge associated with the production of the program. America’s Freedom Festival also support these costs. This does NOT grant permission to replicate and distribute additional copies of the music in any form. This would be a direct violation of international copyright laws.
