Let Freedom Ring


Let Freedom Ring was an inspirational one-hour special program marshaling through music and the spoken word the moral heritage that has made America great. This patriotic expression ranged from the spirit of Patrick Henry and Abraham Lincoln to the Battle Hymn of the Republic. It featured the Salt Lake City Mormon Tabernacle Choir; starred Richard Boone, Laraine Day, Howard Keel, and Don O’Herligy; was narrated by Richard L. Evans; produced by Michel M. Grilikhes; and written by Michel M. Grilikhes and Richard L. Evans. Clearly of Peabody caliber, Let Freedom Ring, KSL-TV (CBS), Salt Lake City, Utah, gets the Award for television public service.
