Country country-pop singer Carrie Underwood's "My Savior" Easter concert was a major success as she raised more than $100,000, which will come in handy for charity.
Carrie Underwood took to Facebook to announce her new album and her virtual concert over the weekend. At the time, she disclosed that the money raised would benefit a children's charity.
“Carrie Underwood brings her new album, My Savior, to life with “My Savior: Life From The Ryman,” a virtual live concert performance from the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN,” the statement read.

UNDERWOOD’S LIVE CONCERT
Special guests who joined Underwood included gospel singer CeCe Winans, songwriter Bear Rinehart, country music star Mac McAnally, and Buddy Greene Music.
"Donations during the event will benefit global efforts of Save the Children US, which works in over 100 countries to make sure children all over the world grow up healthy, educated, and safe," she said.
The message came along with a poster of herself wearing a glittered, detailed strapless dress. The 38-year-old went for curly locks, which she wore down.
She opted for puffed cheeks for glam, chose a nude lip to accentuate her makeup, and wore hanging earrings to complete her gorgeous look.
UNDERWOOD ON HER NEW ALBUM
Underwood's live-stream concert raised more than $112,000 for the nonprofit organization, Save the Children. The organization promotes childhood education and fights hunger.
The live stream aired on Underwood’s Facebook page. In her press release, she shared how much it means for her to bring the event to people in their homes on a day that means a lot to us spiritually and to be able to raise funds and awareness for work done by the charity:
“This is an album I have always wanted to record, and I’m thrilled to be able to bring these uplifting, inspirational songs to life in this special way."
REACHING TOP CHARTS
The Oklahoma native’s album knocked Morgan Wallen’s latest project from the top of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. “My Savior” is No.1 this week.
It’s also the No.4 album on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. Underwood's victory gives her nine straight albums to drop at the top of the chart, extending her already remarkable record.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
The seven-time Grammy winner has had a successful music career so far, and she continues to elevate her genre. There may be unknown facts about the singer that fans are not privy to.
She earned her college credit for "American Idol," as her time spent on the show served as an internship, and she is the first-ever female to win back-to-back ACM Awards for Entertainer of The Year.
