Carrie Underwood surprised a massive group of college students with an unannounced performance at the Georgia Dome on Monday night (Jan. 2).
Underwood joined Christian rocker David Crowder on stage at Atlanta’s Passion 2017, an evangelical conference that focuses on reaching college students. She joins an impressive line-up that included contemporary Christian artists Chris Tomlin, Hillsong United and Matt Redman.
Underwood performed her #1 hit on the Christian charts and Billboard Music Awards’ Top Christian Song “Something in the Water.” The Grammy-nominated singer beamed as she belted out the rocking rendition of her crossover track. The unannounced performance helped kick off the three-day convention for over 50,000 fans.
After Underwood’s set, those in attendance quickly took to social media to express their amazement at the unanticipated appearance.
