Carrie Underwood Sings Christmas Song
FaithTap Staff 12/23/2015
In the beginning of her career after winning American Idol, Carrie Underwood was winning many awards for her country music. On NBC's 75th Annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting, she sang a "countrified" version of a beloved Christmas classic.
Her stage looked like a winter wonderland as she sang "Do You Hear What I Hear?" surrounded by white Christmas trees and a snowy-looking ground. Her performance was cheered on by the audience, and it's easy to see why she has become so successful and called "Country Music's reigning Queen" by Billboard.
The song, "Do You Hear What I Hear?", was written in 1962 as a plea for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It has now sold tens of millions of copies and been recorded by a multitude of artists. Though already popular when it was released, Bing Crosby turned it into a hit with his version. Carrie Underwood's take on this classic is certainly a lovely addition to the other most popular renditions.
