As if we needed yet another reason to love Carrie Underwood, we now have one! The American Idol alum and Country music superstar recently joined the growing list of celebrities to help out victims of Hurricane Sandy. What did she do?
Carrie Underwood never ceases to amaze us. Not only is she an incredible singer, but she has one of the biggest hearts around. Recently, Underwood was set to perform in Atlantic City, NJ (the first performance there since Hurricane Sandy hit), when she decided to take it one step further. What did she do? Carrie Underwood donated ALL the proceeds of the sold out show to New Jersey communities in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
“You know, after something like this, you wonder whether the show should go on. We thought, this building was still here, so it must be here for a reason,” Carrie told the crowd, and then added: “I wouldn’t feel right making any money off of tonight’s show, so anything I make is going right back into the community here.”
Underwood, who has been known to donate to charities in the past, took to Twitter after her show to post: “Thank you beautiful Atlantic City! You all made my year! You have been through so much and still rocked the house! I leave in awe.”
What do you think of Carrie Underwood’s good deed? Like we said, just another reason to love her! We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it. Comment below to share your thoughts with us.
