Ok I ain't gonna lie - I love me some Carrie Underwood. I have no idea what it is. She's just so darn good. This past week, American Idol did their show Idol Gives Back where they raised over 60 million dollars for under privileged children in the United States and Africa. While the show was slightly boring in my opinion there were some highlights. Annie Lennox and Kelly Clarkson both gave stellar performances but it was Ms. Underwood that blew me away. Carrie did a remake of The Pretenders' "I'll Stand By You". I always loved the song and I think Carrie did it justice. The song takes on a new meaning when the backdrop is the AIDS crisis in Africa. The video below is a touching reminder that we have much to do in regards to this epidemic. Every little thing we can do is one step further in the fight ahead.
Oh and speaking of helping - if you are able - please help my friend Brandon who is making a trip across Africa in June to raise money for AIDS research. Even a dollar will help to get him to his goal of 10K. Your donations are dearly thanked. Now on to the video... Enjoy. Happy Sunday, y'all!. xoxox.
