Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain released a tribute video for the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. An amateur gospel singer, Cain sings a version of "God Bless America" while images from Sept. 11, 2001 play on the screen.

"On September 11, 2001, we saw the worst of our enemies, but we saw the best of us," Cain said in a statement. "As long as we are prosperous and as long as we are free, America will remain the envy of the world. That's why, ten years later, we must answer the high moral call for defending this great nation for Her preservation for generations to come."

A campaign spokeswoman said Cain recorded the song in one take.
