Her iconic rendition of God Bless America inspired many, but now controversy has caused professional sports teams like the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Flyers to rethink using that.

The Yankees have used the song as part of the Seventh inning stretch while the Flyers have sung the song before select home games. Smith also had a statue outside of the Wells Fargo Center.
