LYRICS This is my American Prayer This is my American Prayer This is the time to finish what you started And this is no time to dream This is the room We can turn off the dark tonight Maybe then we might see American Prayer American Prayer And this is the ground That keeps our feet from getting wet And this is the sky over our head And what you see depends on where you stand And how you jump will tell you where you're gonna land American Prayer American Prayer My oh my Couldn't get much higher Lets not kick out the darkness Make the light brighter And these are the hands What are we gonna build with them? This is the church you can't see Give me your tired, your poor and huddled masses You know they're yearning to breathe free This is my American Prayer American Prayer American Prayer When you get to the top of the mountain Will you tell me what you see If you get to the top of the mountain Remember me LIST OF GUESTS IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE: Dave Stewart Forest Whitaker Amy Keys Macy Gray Jason Alexander Colbie Caillat Whoopi Goldberg Joss Stone Buju Banton Ann Marie Calhoun Barry Manilow Linda Perry Cyndi Lauper Sergio Mendes Herbie Hancock Mike Bradford Margaret Cho Cindy Gomez Speech Joan Baez Daedelus Pamela Anderson Peter & Gordon Sierra Swan Nadirah X Perez Hilton
