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:

"@carrieunderwood & @cecewinans are the duo we never knew we needed! ? #ACMawards."


Underwood shared a video of her stunning performance on YouTube. Multiple fans commented on the post and expressed delight in being alive to witness it. 

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 said she still imagines sitting in the church pews next to her parents, hearing her mom sing harmonies.


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 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. 

The mother of two also spoke about having Winans on the album, revealing that it was very wonderful to have the latter around and learn so much from her.
