Carrie Underwood Kicks Off The Super Bowl With A ‘Champion’ Performance
Whether Sunday's, February 4, Super Bowl was a huge upset or reason to celebrate, most everyone can agree that Carrie Underwood's debut of her music video for “Champion" was a huge win for the country sensation.
As the newly chosen anthem for the Super Bowl and 2018 Winter Olympics, Underwood kicked off the biggest day of football with an amazing message for athletes as well for the everyday person. "When we were writing ‘The Champion,’ our main focus was to celebrate athletes at the top of their game, but we also wanted the song to resonate with people in their everyday lives,“ Carrie said in a statement. "We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome. There’s a champion in every single one of us!”
Showcasing her impressive vocals and equally impressive toned legs in a sparkling silver mini-dress, the video featured Underwood center stage as images of football's greatest moments and players flashed on the screen behind her. While hip hop artist Ludacris was not present in the video, his added vocals supplied a great energy to the already powerful song.
Since November, the country singer has been laying low and recovering from a broken wrist and receiving 40+ stitches on her face after a bad fall. Though believed to be filmed prior to her accident, fans were elated to see Underwood performing again.
