Last week, the New York Yankees pulled Smith's rendition of "God Bless America" from the stadium's 7th-inning stretch, which had been a tradition at Yankee Stadium for almost two decades.
The Flyers played Smith's rendition of "God Bless America" for good luck before must-win games beginning in 1969.
The team followed that move by removing the statue altogether, saying in a ratioed Twitter statement - in which responses outnumber likes - that "we can not stand idle while material from another era gets in the way of who we are today".
Two sports teams now say her rendition of "God Bless America" will no longer be played during games. A year after her 1986 death, the team erected a statue in her honor outside of its arena.
But in recent days, we learned that several of the songs Kate Smith performed in the 1930s include lyrics and sentiments that are incompatible with the values of our organization, and evoke painful and unacceptable themes.
Smith's career spanned more than five decades and encompassed radio, multiple television shows under her name, commercials, and over two dozen albums and hundreds of singles.
Neither the team nor Holmgren disclosed how officials were made aware of the lyrics.
Smith's rendition began playing during the 7th inning stretch by the New York Yankees after the 9/11/01 attacks.
A spokesperson told the Daily News last Thursday, "The Yankees have been made aware of a recording that had been previously unknown to us and chose to immediately and carefully review this new information".
'The Yankees take social, racial, and cultural insensitivities very seriously...' "And while no final conclusions have been made, we are erring on the side of sensitivity".
"Aunt Katherine was probably one of the kindest people I've ever met", Suzy Andron added to KYW.
Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. has ruled out pausing the late Kate Smith's 1938 hit song "God Bless America" at the city's iconic boardwalk entertainment precinct because it is a tradition. "Thanks to her they have become a cherished part of all our lives, an undying reminder of the beauty, the courage and the heart of this great land of ours". He said her voice was one of the most inspiring things heard by troops during World War II and other wars.
The decision follows allegations of racism in connection with some of Smith's songs, including a 1939 tune called "That's Why the Darkies Were Born" and "Pickaninnies' Heaven" from the early 1930s.
But Troiano believes the song in question was not meant to offend anyone, explaining it was originally created in 1931 for "George White's Scandals" Broadway revue, which is a popular theatrical form of entertainment comprising of multiple acts, music, dance, and sketches.
And in Tuesday's Daily Telegraph, Tory grandee William Hague said the talks were "akin to having a dinner date with a crocodile". He said people involved "are telling me that the process is being undertaken in a genuine and honest way from both sides".
