Just browsing through Youtube and found this gem of a video. Carrie Underwood’s voice is flawless, even during her initial audition. I’ve seen it many times before and I know I’ll continue to watch. It’s inspiration: knowing that your life (or anyone’s for that matter) can change so drastically in such a short amount of time.
It’s also kind of eerie watching this, mostly because when she walks out of the audition and hugs her mom, they both didn’t know that she’d a) be flying all over the world someday, b) land 13 #1 hits and c) outsell every other American Idol in the show’s history.
I’d really love to see her in concert. Today I heard a great song of hers, which spurred me to download her entire new album (shame on me for not doing it in the first place), called “Mama’s Song.” Mom (and mom’s), you’ll love this one. :0)
