Actress and comedian Tracey Ullman served as the keynote speaker for Sunday's Fourth of July Monticello Naturalization Ceremony.
The celebration took on a special meaning for Ullman who became a naturalized citizen after immigrating to the United States from the United Kingdom in the 1980's.
She has received numerous awards and recognitions in her career including three Emmy awards, a Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors Guild Award.
Ullman says Sunday was a tremendous honor. "To look at all of those people, 70 people before me today, and remember how it felt in 2006 when I became an American citizen I did feel different. You feel that you really belong and you really have your say, and no other country in the world offers you that opportunity," said Ullman.
Ullman currently stars in "Tracey Ullman's State of the Union," which is a sketch comedy series on Showtime.
