Beautiful Ohio where the golden grain
Dwarf the lovely flowers in the summer rain
Cities rising high
Silhouette the sky

Freedom is supreme in this majestic land
Mighty factories, they hum in tune, so grand!
Beautiful Ohio, thy wonders are in view
Land where my dreams all come true

A Native Ohioan, Celeste Reichert Friedman brings you stories of Ohio's history, its famous inventors, eight U.S. Presidents from Ohio, the roots of Ohio's industry,the Ohio State flag and symbols, as well as Ohio's role in changing our nation and our world.
Celeste shares her original songs about the great Buckeye State . . .

Reflecting upon the Ohio River, as one of the most important passageways of The Underground Railroad, Celeste's Big River tells the story of secret codes in song, leading the way to freedom.

Other originals, such as The Children of Ohio
and Down By the Yellow Corn,
express the pure sentiment from this native Ohioan.
For corporate events and state functions,
Celeste also features our state song, Beautiful Ohio.
