The music part is "God Bless The USA and Armed Forces Medly" by the American Patriots.  That wouldn't have the intro.  I have this in my show.


There is a sequence on the xLights shared good drive that I used for everything but my megatree.  I did the lyrics track for it.   For the megatree, I purchased the megatree sequence for it from holidaysequences.com.


My video from last year:  (without the singing faces as I didn't have the lyrics track at that point)

We play the version by Mathew Mark in our rotation for every holiday we have lights up.  My wife would not have it any other way.  Matthew shared it on FB over a year ago.

Jim
 If you come across it let me know. I converted the tree over to Xlights but will not save the model or the songs.. SO not sure what I am doing wrong..

One of the better "Proud to be an American / Armed Forces" medleys I've seen. As a former Cold Warrior (USAF 73-80) I salute you sir!
