Celebrated gospel singer CeCe Winans wowed the crowd Sunday night (April 18), as she took the stage to join Carrie Underwood for a powerful gospel medley during the 2021 ACM Awards in Nashville, Tennessee.
Songs from the set included “Amazing Grace,” “The Old Rugged Cross,” “How Great Thou Art,” and “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” a record Winans collaborated with for Underwood’s new album, My Savior.
Winans described their studio duet as a “divine connection.”
“I met Carrie years ago when she first won American Idol. I heard her on American Idol, of course, she’s amazing. But then we both sang at the White House. I think it was Christmas at the White House,” Winans said. “I got to hear her up close and personal and I was just like, ‘Whoa, this girl can really really sing!'”
Winans released her latest album, Believe For It, last month. The project hit #1 Billboard’s Gospel album charts and is her first non-holiday project in four years.
