These Are the Days of the Open Hand

Of all the winners of American Idol over the past few years, the greatest still I think is Carrie Underwood. I love both country and gospel pop music. Jesus Take The Wheel is the one of best of that combination of music.
Anyone who visits this site regularly knows that I love hearing music stars singing versions of other stars songs. This year Carrie sang a song that George Michael first sang in 1990. That song was Praying For Time and it was performed live on Idol Gives Back, where stars like Mariah Carey, Gloria Estefan, Annie Lennox, Fergie and Miley Cyrus sang to raise money for charities in America and Africa. Carrie really stood out that night, both in how she looked and her delivery of the song.
