WASHINGTON CITY, Utah -

In remembrance of the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, a man in Utah is attempting to sing Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" 911 times in 48 hours.

Alan Foote kicked off his herculean effort at 6 a.m. Sunday at the September 11th Tribute & Patriotic Marathon at Staheli Farms in Washington City. He said he is trying to wrap up his last rendition by 6:46 a.m. on Tuesday, the Spectrum reported.

"There have been things in my life that I haven't followed through on ... but this is really an important thing to follow through on, for me," Foote told the newspaper. "I would love for the community to stop whatever they're doing at 6:40 on Tuesday and sing with me that 911th time."

During his crooning so far, Foote has been joined on stage by actors portraying former presidents, in addition to a performance by a Native American flutist.
