Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill perform “How Great Thou Art,” and Underwood’s passionate and powerful vocals are wonderful.

Well, that much is already certain! The two gifted vocalists have collaborated on concerts before, and each time they do, the outcome is just breathtaking. One such occasion was the 2011 Academy of Country Music’s “Girls’ Night Out: Superstar Women of Country” theme. Male performers would perform a song by a certain female singer together while honoring some of the finest women in country music.

Carrie Underwood received recognition during the show for being the only female artist in Academy history to have won Entertainer of the Year twice, in 2008 and 2009. Underwood has won 10 ACM Awards in total, including three as Female Vocalist. It’s amazing, isn’t it?

Vince Gill, Underwood’s masculine counterpart for the evening, opened the show with “Jesus Take the Wheel” before Underwood joined him for “How Great Thou Art.”

Before starting to sing, Underwood thanked Gill for sharing the stage with her and acknowledged all of the other female performers. Underwood remarked, “It means a lot that you shared this very special night with me. Thank you so much.”

People Could Not Stop Discussing Their Amazing Performance. People were still chatting about their rendition of the famous hymn years later. Yes, that was a truly unique moment. Underwood began to sing a little by herself as Gill played the guitar next to her.

Then my soul sings to Thee, O God, my Savior. How wonderful you are, how wonderful you are. Then my soul sings to Thee, O God, my Savior. “How wonderful you are, how wonderful you are,” As the song progressed, Underwood’s voice became louder and the notes higher until Gill joined in and delivered a tremendous harmony.

At first, Underwood sang in a low voice by herself as Gill played the guitar next to her. The song went on, the notes getting higher and Underwood’s voice getting louder, until Gill joined in and harmonized her voice firmly.

During a sad guitar solo in the middle of the song, Underwood briefly gave Gill the floor. She launched herself back into the song, giving every note her all. Even before the song ended, the whole audience was standing and clapping; the majority of them had tears in their eyes.

Watch two of the most gifted vocalists in the business perform this well-known hymn in a stunning version. We guarantee that you won’t be able to watch this moving performance without crying a little, as we weren’t able to. Watch it down below.
