I have been meaning to add this gorgeous Carrie Underwood performance of her hit single , “Something In The Water“, which was showcased during American Idol’s Farewell Season.
Carrie was one of many alumnae who participated in the Gala Finale of American Idol Season 15. I loved each and every performance on this special show, one which has discovered and nurtured so many stars over the past 15 years.
Undoubtedly, Carrie remains one of their brightest and best discoveries. Her numerous awards and record-braking album sales speak volumes.
However, this song, in particular, highlighted Carrie’s crystal clear vocal and emotional range. She can belt like the best of them but, like flipping on a light switch, can integrate pure head voice with technical ease and security.
For instance, her lovely soprano voice when she sang the words “I’m Changed” provided sharp contrast to her more muscular sounding voice when she sang “I’m Stronger“. This is nuanced singing at its best, folks. Carrie is very committed to telling her story through her expressive vocal delivery. The words mean something to her and, as a result, to us as well.
