While living abroad, at every step he emphasized his nationality. He sang A number of concerts for charity, including shares to raise money to support the construction of the building of the National Museum or for the National Defence Fund before the outbreak of World War II.


Film career, which Jan Kiepura began in 1930 with the film " Naples a city of singing" made him even more popular and won the hearts of the wider audience. Surrounded by the crowd he sang in the streets, stadiums, balcony hotel "Bristol" or on the roof of the car. In this way, he disagreed with the " opera elites," which alleged that his way of being on stage and move beyond the walls of the theater is truly wasting a career already started. Kiepura John loved his audience, and his audience loved him back showing spontaneous enthusiasm whenever he appeared.


Jan Kiepura sang many hits like: Rudolf Aria from Act I, "La Boheme", Aria of Don Jose in Act II of the opera "Carmen" Aria from Act I Radames opera "Aida," "Signorina," "O Marie, to Marie" 'O sole mio "," Ninon, oh smile "," Brunettes, blondes”.


Jan Kiepura built in Krynica the most luxurious hotel - villa Patrie ( Fatherland) for the money he earned on the world scene in the thirties. Patria had been the only Polish home of Jan Kiepura. The artist, however, was rarely here, which resulted from work outside the home country, but when he could, he used to come for a few days to Krynica, and there he spent time with his family. Then the crowds waited for his shows, and Jan Kiepura sang at the promenade or from the balcony of Patria. The last stay in Krynica occurred in the autumn of 1958..


Jan Kiepura died suddenly from a heart attack in Harrison, New York. According to the artist's last wish, his ashes were brought to the country and deposited in Warsaw’s Powązki.
