Carrie Underwood Pays Tribute to Oklahoma Tornado Victims at 2013 CMT Music Awards

Published on June 05, 2013 by CMT News

Fans of Carrie Underwood are used to being blown away by the country superstar.
But during the 2013 CMT Music Awards, it wasn’t about her. Underwood paid
tribute to the 24 victims of the May 20 Oklahoma tornadoes with “See You Again.”

Rascal
Flatts
introduced the country diva, who reigns from Oklahoma, and visuals of the destruction panned out behind her shadow.
As the lights were lifted, fans watching the show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena saw the singer belt out the first few lines
of the song, climbing to the chorus, “I’ll carry you with me, ’til I see you again.”

Dedicating the performance to
those in her home state, Underwood effortlessly pushed out the verses of her current single with high emotion. The band was
joined by a choir from Christ Church of Nashville, dressed in all white, who swayed with the song’s beat and echoed Underwood’s
energy.

The performance closed with the Red Cross logo in a call to help for the victims of the tornadoes. Just a week
before, other country artists did what they do best in an effort to help out. Blake Shelton
teamed up with pal Usher of The Voice during the Healing the Heartland telethon by singing Michael BublĂ©’s “Home.”
Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and OneRepublic’s Ryan
Tedder also came together to help out.

In addition to her plea for assistance at the CMT Music Awards, Underwood last
week donated $1 million from her Blown Away tour to tornado relief efforts in Oklahoma.
