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.

Interestingly, she had no formal singing lessons and first sang in church at just 13 years old. Underwood also auditioned for a record label Capitol Records, at only 14.

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.
