Carrie Underwood, whose new gospel album My saviour releases this Friday (26), bring it to life in a virtual concert at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on Easter Sunday (April 4).
The seven-time Grammy winner will perform songs from the album during the special free event, which will be streamed live worldwide on her official Facebook page at 11 a.m. CT that day. Donations to My Savior: Live from the Ryman will benefit Save the Children.
There will be guest appearances by gospel great CeCe Winans, who duets with Underwood on the album “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” and singer-songwriter and NEEDTOBREATHE frontman Bear Rinehart, who sings with her on another traditional hymn, “Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus.”
The event will also feature contributions from southern gospel and harmonica great Buddy Greene and ten-time CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally. Both also play on My saviour. The Underwood singers will be present, and there will also be a string ensemble and a gospel choir.
“This is an album I’ve always wanted to record and I’m thrilled to be able to bring these uplifting and inspiring songs to life in this special way,” Underwood said. “It means so much to be able to bring this event to people in their homes on a day that is so spiritually meaningful to us and to be able to raise much needed funds and spread awareness of the incredible work of Save the Children as we celebrate the importance of family.
My Savior: Live from the Ryman will remain exclusively on Facebook for 48 hours. Fans can RSVP here. Donations will be accepted throughout the livestream and for 48 hours afterwards, to help the work of save the children in over 100 countries.
My saviour was released on CD and digitally on March 26. Pre-order it here.
