Carrie Underwood announced a free, virtual live concert performance from The Ryman Auditorium this Easter Sunday. The concert is called “My Savior: Live From The Ryman” and you can watch the concert at 11 a.m. on Easter via Underwood’s Facebook Page.
While the concert is free, donations will be accepted to benefit Save the Children. Joining Underwood in performing will be CeCe Winans, Bear Rinehart frontman of Need to Breathe, Buddy Greene and Mac McAnally.
Her latest album, My Savior, which was released on March 26, consists of covers of some of Underwood’s favorite traditional gospel hymns in a unique pastiche of musical styles from classic country to folk, bluegrass, and gospel.
“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,” says Underwood. “It means so much to be able to bring this event to people in their homes on a day that holds so much meaning for us spiritually and to be able to raise much needed funds and awareness for the incredible work of Save the Children as we celebrate the importance of family.”
