Carrie Underwood Responds to People Saying Singing About Jesus Would Hurt Her Career

Will you stand up for what you believe when challenged?

Can we all agree, Carrie Underwood is absolutely beautiful and can sing like an angel? Ok, good. But, while some stars are afraid to be open about their faith, Carrie has always remained steadfast in hers–whether in person or on stage in a song.

Carrie has a history of being unashamed of her faith that includes singing “How Great Thou Art on national TV and talking openly with Oprah about prayer.

In 2012, she responded to whether or not she worried about the success of her single, “Jesus Take the Wheel,” due to its religious message. “It wasn’t a worry to me at all,” Carrie told Glamour.

I’m not the first person to sing about God, Jesus, faith [or] any of that, and I won’t be the last. And it won’t be the last for me, either. If you don’t like it, change the channel.

Without hesitation, the star released another very Christian-themed song, ‘Something In The Water‘, a beautiful song about baptism.

It’s been almost 10 years since Carrie Underwood won “American Idol,” but this song proves that fame has definitely not destroyed her faith.

It’s really kind of a joyous uplifting song about changing your life for the better, Underwood told NBC’s TODAY. And kind of having that ˜ah-ha” moment, to waking up and your life being different from that moment forward.

He said, I’ve been where you’ve been before.
Down every hallways a slamming door.
No way out, no one to come and save me.
Wasting a life that the Good Lord gave me.

Then somebody said what I’m saying to you,
Opened my eyes and told me the truth.

They said, Just a little faith, it’ll all get better.
So I followed that preacher man down to the river and now I’m changed
And now I’m stronger
There must’ve been something in the water
Oh, there must’ve been something in the water
