The 2021 edition of the Academy of Country Music Awards served up many great moments, and one such moment proved to be Carrie Underwood's inspiring performance at the awards ceremony.

Clad in a sparkly beige gown, Underwood performed a medley of gospel tunes from her latest album, "My Saviour." Her performance began with her stunning acapella rendition of "Amazing Grace."

She easily transitioned into "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" before CeCe Winans joined her. The iconic gospel singers sang "The Old Rugged Cross" before Underwood finished off her classical performance with a stunning rendition of "How Great Thou Art."

The ACM Awards paid tribute to Underwood and Winans, who wore a beautiful black and multi-colored floral gown. In a post on its Twitter page, it wrote:

One fan described Underwood as a God-given gift, while another fan opined that the performance marked her most iconic moment, adding that she is the definition of light in the world.

Underwood and Winans' performance was just one of 25+ musical performances on the star-studded night. Maren Morris also had a great night after winning Female Artist of the Year.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time Underwood is making headlines since releasing "My Saviour," her first-ever gospel album, last month. The 38-year-old raised more than $100,000 for charity with the album's live stream on Easter.

The proceeds went to the nonprofit organization Save the Children, which helps in promoting childhood education and alleviating hunger. She revealed the album is one she has always wanted to record and said she was thrilled to bring uplifting and inspirational songs to life in a special way.

During a chat with Grammy.com about the album, she revealed she has been singing the songs on the album her whole life. Underwood said she still imagines sitting in the church pews next to her parents, hearing her mom sing harmonies and people's voices in the congregation.
