- Carrie Underwood surprised an elementary school choir during their rehearsal for the CMA Music Festival.
- The Eagle Honor Choir was practicing Carrie's hit song, "The Champion," when the singer appeared from backstage.
Is there anything Carrie Underwood can't do?
The country superstar, fashion entrepreneur, and mom of two somehow found time (right in the middle of her Cry Pretty Tour) to give some well-deserving elementary school students the surprise of a lifetime.
The group of third and fourth graders from Nashville's Andrew Jackson Elementary School earned national attention in May when their cover of Carrie's song "The Champion" went viral online. After seeing the unique performance, organizers from the CMA Music Festival reached out to the school and invited the kids to perform their version of her inspiring anthem in front of a crowd of 50,000 people during the annual CMA Fest in June.
Naturally, the Eagle Honor Choir accepted the invitation and they were working hard during a rehearsal when Carrie herself showed up.
The CMA Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that supports music education in public schools, caught the entire surprise on camera—and the students' reactions are priceless.
The adorable clip shows Carrie hiding backstage while the choir performs and she's gushing like a proud mom.
"I just love listening to them," the "Southbound" singer whispers.
Moments later, she steps out from behind the curtain and the group of kids goes wild. There are screams, laughter, and a lot of happy tears. If you say you watched the entire video without crying, you're lying!
