Carrie Underwood’s Soulful Duet of “How Great Thou Art” with Vince Gill

by

Carrie Underwood’s soulful and powerful vocals are spine-chilling in this performance of “How Great Thou Art” with Vince Gill.

Well, there’s already no doubt about that! The two talented singers have teamed up for performances several times before, and every time they do, the result is nothing short of amazing. One instance was during the Academy of Country Music in 2011 with the theme “Girls’ Night Out: Superstar Women of Country.” The event honored some of the greatest women in country music; wherein male artists would sing a certain female artist’s song and perform it together.

During the show, Carrie Underwood was honored for being the only female artist in the history of the Academy to ever win Entertainer of the Year, twice – first in 2008 and again in 2009. Underwood has won Female Vocalist three times and has won a total of ten ACM Awards. Pretty impressive, isn’t it?

And for that evening, Vince Gill was Underwood’s male counterpart, who performed “Jesus Take the Wheel” before Underwood joined him on stage for “How Great Thou Art.”

Before they began singing, Underwood recognized all of her fellow female artists and thanked Gill for performing with her. “Thank you so much for sharing this very special night with me, it means a lot,” Underwood said. 

People Never Stopped Talking About Their Incredible Performance

Years later, people were still talking about their performance of the classic hymn. It was indeed a very special moment. Underwood started singing softly on her own, while Gill played guitar beside her. 

“Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee. How great Thou art, how great Thou art. Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee. How great Thou art, how great Thou art,” Underwood’s voice grew louder as the song went on, and the notes grew higher before Gill joined in and sang powerfully in harmony. 

In the middle of the song, Underwood gave the floor to Gill for a brief moment as he played a moving guitar solo. She jumped back in and sang each note with an intense level of passion. And before the song was over, the entire crowd was already on their feet cheering and applauding; most had tears in their eyes.

Check out the beautiful rendition of this beloved hymn from two of the most talented singers in the music industry. We were not able to get through this inspiring performance without tearing up a little, and we’re sure you won’t be able to either. You can watch it below.
