CHUCK CHOI – THE FAN WHO MELTED CARRIE UNDERWOOD’S HEART WITH HIS STORY

To celebrate her hit single, “Champions,” Carrie Underwood asked that her fans share their stories about it six months ago.

That was when Choi reached out with a unique story of how he moved to the United States with no idea of how to speak English.

In a recent post on Choi’s Instagram page, he explained that he came to understand the language by rapping along to many of American rapper Eminem’s hits. He wrote:

“I shared a story of myself moving to U.S., learning English from listening to Eminem, adjusting to the new environment, enjoying life!”

His story touched Underwood, who he revealed requested that he come perform rapper Ludacris’s share of the “Champions” song with her in front of thousands of people.
