The song is on Carrie Underwood’s new Christmas album, “My Gift.”
Carrie Underwood and John Legend’s moving performance of “Hallelujah” just may be the new hopeful anthem we all need for the 2020 holiday season. The singers performed the emotional duet to close out the Global Citizen Prize 2020, which aired Saturday night on NBC.
“A dreamy winter backdrop + The silky smooth vocal stylings of @carrieunderwood and @johnlegend = A jaw dropping performance of ‘Hallelujah’!” Global Citizen, an organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty, posted on Instagram.
The awards special was filmed in a different way this year due to COVID-19.
“Want to know something cool? John and Carrie weren’t even in the same city when this was filmed! That’s the magic of green screens!” the organization shared.
Even if they were in different places, Legend and Underwood’s performance was totally in sync. The duo sang against a sparkling, winter backdrop with Legend at the piano in an embroidered tuxedo jacket and Underwood standing at the mic in a black dress with glittering earrings. Gold Christmas trees, fake snow and sparkly snowflakes completed the festive scene.
“My favorite performance of the show,” commented one fan.
“Absolutely beautiful,” wrote another.
“Blessing of peace and prayers for the Earth,” posted a third.
“Hallelujah” appears on Underwood’s new Christmas album, “My Gift.” The singers debuted the video for the song last month, which also had a magical, winter-wonderland feel to it.
