"I was flabbergasted," Brenda said. "I just never expected any of kind of response like what we've received, and I'm not even sure why. It seems to me like an easy subject. We did get some comments that it undermined our official language. I think they missed the point."

"This was symbolic," Wood said. "No one was suggesting (the song) should be sung in another language. It was symbolic of the cultures, the ethnicities, the races and languages and lifestyles. Symbolic of all of those things that makes up America and the strength and beauty of that."
