Carrie Underwood

Carrie Marie Underwood (born March 10, 1983) is an American country singer who rose to fame as the winner of the fourth season of American Idol.

Early years

Carrie Underwood was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma and raised in a farm in Checotah, Oklahoma.

At the age of 13, her manager at the time tried to get a recording contract at Capitol Records, but due to management changes at Capitol it never materialized.

Underwood graduated from Checotah High School in 2001 as salutatorian. Underwood attended Northeastern State University, where she majored in mass communication and is a member of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority. She also competed in numerous beauty pageants at the university and was selected as Miss NSU runner-up in 2004.

Idol

Underwood's musical influences include pop, but are predominantly country; she stated during Idol auditions that her favorite singer is Martina McBride. On the April 20 elimination show, Underwood demonstrated her ability to play the guitar. She can also play piano and yodel, the latter of which was demonstrated on the Tonight Show the night after she won.

After singing Martina McBride's "Independence Day" Simon Cowell said he couldn't believe no one has discovered her yet.

On the March 22 show, after a performance of Heart's "Alone", Simon Cowell said, "Carrie, you're not just the girl to beat, you're the person to beat. I will make a prediction, not only will you win this competition, but you will sell more records than any other previous 'Idol' winner." Cowell went on to say on the March 30 show that she has the "it factor" that will make her a star.

On her last song of the night in the final two, Carrie's spectacular performance of "Angels Brought Me Here" had Simon saying, "I think you've done enough to win the competition." On May 25, 2005, she became the fourth winner of American Idol, beating Southern rocker Bo Bice, and she joins Kelly Clarkson and Clay Aiken as the only contestants who have never been one of the "bottom three" singers during any week's results. During the season, Constantine Maroulis tried to flirt with her but she refused to go out with him.

Post-Idol career

As part of her title, Underwood gained a recording contract with Arista Records; her first single, "Inside Your Heaven", was released on June 14, 2005. The single debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, with first-week sales of 170,000 copies, and briefly stopped Mariah Carey's run at #1 with "We Belong Together." One week later, runner-up, Bo Bice, released his version of the song, which debuted at #2. Underwood's version was shunned by country radio reaching a peak of #59 on the country charts. [1] The B-side is "Independence Day", a cover of the Martina McBride hit.

In the same year, she starred in ads for Hershey's Chocolate. The commercials have Underwood singing Hershey jingles like the jingles for Hershey's, Kit Kat and Almond Joy.

Underwood is also the latest spokesperson for Skechers shoes, following in the footsteps of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

Underwood's second single, "Jesus, Take The Wheel" was made available for radio airplay on October 18, 2005. It received so much airplay that it debuted at #39 on the Billboard Country Chart in its first week, setting a record. It is currently ranked at #1 in its thirteenth week on that chart. The single also debuted at #48 on the Billboard Hot 100 where it currently sits at #26 after reaching a peak at #25.

Her initial album release, entitled Some Hearts, hit store shelves on November 15, 2005.

When the week's sales figures were tabulated, Some Hearts entered the Billboard 200 chart with 315,000 copies sold. The large first week sales of Some Hearts made it #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and the biggest debut of any country artist since the advent of the SoundScan system in 1990.

In December 2005, Underwood was named "Oklahoman of the Year" by Oklahoma Today magazine.

On January 9th 2006, Some Hearts was certified Double Platinum by the RIAA with shipments of over 2 million units, making it the fastest-selling debut country album in the history of Nielsen SoundScan.[3]

"Don't Forget to Remember Me" was recently announced as the next single. [4]

2005 Billboard Music Awards. Occasionally, some groups, such as Sabbatarians or Adventists reject the idea of a present Kingdom of Heaven as interpreted by other groups, instead preaching of the Kingdom of Heaven existing only in heaven, but will later be extended over the Earth after the Second Coming of Jesus. Her favorite sports teams are the Boston Red Sox, Dallas Cowboys, and Los Angeles Lakers. Traditionally, Catholicism, Liberal Christian and Pentecostal denominations have tended to emphasize its present aspect, while conservative Fundamentalists and evangelicals have emphasized its future aspect. She is a big sports fan. The tension between the present and future aspects of the Kingdom has been referred to as "the now and the not yet" of God's Kingdom. Carrie Underwood and Drake Clark agreed to break it off since the two were not spending enough time together. The future aspect of the Kingdom is the belief of a future, post-apocalyptic implementation of God's theocratic rule, especially in a premillennialist interpretation of the prophetic genre of scriptural texts.

During American Idol she dated Drake Clark, also from Northeastern State University. The present fulfillment of the Kingdom was treated by Jesus as a provisional foretaste of a greater, future reality. Pictures of the two of them surfaced when Chad Eagelton posted pictures of him and Carrie at the Maxim after party on his Facebook account. In Roman Catholicism, Jesus's proclamation of the Kingdom of God is one of the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary. As of November 2005, Carrie Underwood is currently dating Northeastern State University student Chad Eagleton. Some modern fundamentalist religious denominations view the concept of the Kingdom of God as the heart of believers, where the commandments of God are proclaimed, heard and observed. [4]. Protestants, however, believe that the Church is the instrument by which the Kingdom is manifested, but is not synonymous with the Kingdom itself.

"Don't Forget to Remember Me" was recently announced as the next single. In Roman Catholic theology, the Kingdom of God can also refer to the Church. On January 9th 2006, Some Hearts was certified Double Platinum by the RIAA with shipments of over 2 million units, making it the fastest-selling debut country album in the history of Nielsen SoundScan.[3]. Jesus's use of "Kingdom of God" language can be contrasted with that of the first century CE Jewish revolutionaries who believed that the Kingdom was a political reality, that would come about by the violent overthrow of Roman rule and its replacement by a Jewish theocracy. In December 2005, Underwood was named "Oklahoman of the Year" by Oklahoma Today magazine. The Kingdom of God also refers to the changed state of heart or mind (metanoia) within Christians (see Luke 17:20-21), emphasizing the spiritual nature of His Kingdom by saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is within (or among) you.". The large first week sales of Some Hearts made it #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and the biggest debut of any country artist since the advent of the SoundScan system in 1990. Following his resurrection, the kingdom of God was the centerpoint of the teaching of the Twelve Apostles and Paul of Tarsus as they carried the message out to the gentiles.

When the week's sales figures were tabulated, Some Hearts entered the Billboard 200 chart with 315,000 copies sold. Jesus maintained the importance of seeking The Kingdom throughout his ministry (Matthew 6:33; Mark 9:43-47). [2] On that same day, she presented an award and performed "Jesus, Take The Wheel" at the 39th Country Music Association awards in New York City. The Kingdom of God is referred to 36 times in the book of Matthew alone, primarily in parables beginning with phrases such as "The kingdom of heaven is like...". Her initial album release, entitled Some Hearts, hit store shelves on November 15, 2005. Jesus treated the subject with great importance, so that in the Lord's Prayer, he said it should be the second most important subject in prayer (Matthew 6:9-10). The single also debuted at #48 on the Billboard Hot 100 where it currently sits at #26 after reaching a peak at #25. By His sinless life, and through His miracles, He also demonstrated to the Jewish people what the Kingdom of Heaven would be like.

It is currently ranked at #1 in its thirteenth week on that chart. Having the Messiah, the King of the Jews, with them, is of course one aspect of the Kingdom: the King had come to represent His Kingdom. It received so much airplay that it debuted at #39 on the Billboard Country Chart in its first week, setting a record. The reported activity of Jesus in healing diseases, driving out demons, teaching a new ethic for living, and offering a new hope in God to the poor, is understood to be a demonstration of that Kingdom in action. Underwood's second single, "Jesus, Take The Wheel" was made available for radio airplay on October 18, 2005. The Gospels describe Jesus as proclaiming the Kingdom as something that was "at hand", and forcefully advancing since the days of John the Baptist, and not merely a future reality (see Mark 1:15). Underwood is also the latest spokesperson for Skechers shoes, following in the footsteps of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. The Christian understanding of the Kingdom of God encompasses several ideas.

The T-Shirts are now available to buy with proofs of purchase. Jesus Seminar scholars have translated the phrase "Kingdom of God" as "God's imperial rule", or sometimes "God's domain", to better grasp its sense in today's language. She is also wearing vintage Hershey T-shirts that feature Hershey's, Almond Joy, Kit Kat, Reeses and other chocolate brand logos. Wells wrote: "This doctrine of the Kingdom of Heaven, which was the main teaching of Jesus, and which plays so small a part in the Christian creeds, is certainly one of the most revolutionary doctrines that ever stirred and changed human thought.". The commercials have Underwood singing Hershey jingles like the jingles for Hershey's, Kit Kat and Almond Joy. G. In the same year, she starred in ads for Hershey's Chocolate. Historian H.

Underwood performed a well-received "The Star Spangled Banner" before Game 4 of the 2005 NBA Finals at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan. However, most interpreters, including many premillennialists, believe that there is no basis for such a distinction. [1] The B-side is "Independence Day", a cover of the Martina McBride hit. Some premillennialist interpreters believe that "Kingdom of Heaven" refers to the millennial kingdom of God, while "Kingdom of God" refers to His universal reign. Underwood's version was shunned by country radio reaching a peak of #59 on the country charts. Mark and Luke addressed their gospels to a more general audience who would be unfamiliar with the term "Kingdom of Heaven". The single debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, with first-week sales of 170,000 copies, and briefly stopped Mariah Carey's run at #1 with "We Belong Together." One week later, runner-up, Bo Bice, released his version of the song, which debuted at #2. The standard explanation for this is that Matthew's Gospel was addressed to a Jewish audience who would avoid the direct use of the name of God.

As part of her title, Underwood gained a recording contract with Arista Records; her first single, "Inside Your Heaven", was released on June 14, 2005. Matthew usually uses the term "Kingdom of Heaven", while Luke and Mark use "Kingdom of God". During the season, Constantine Maroulis tried to flirt with her but she refused to go out with him. The Kingdom of God is a term used interchangeably with Kingdom of Heaven in the Synoptic Gospels. On her last song of the night in the final two, Carrie's spectacular performance of "Angels Brought Me Here" had Simon saying, "I think you've done enough to win the competition." On May 25, 2005, she became the fourth winner of American Idol, beating Southern rocker Bo Bice, and she joins Kelly Clarkson and Clay Aiken as the only contestants who have never been one of the "bottom three" singers during any week's results. It is a kingdom peopled by the righteous, among whom the humble will be the greatest, and stands in stark contrast to the only other kingdom available to people: the kingdom of Satan. I will make a prediction, not only will you win this competition, but you will sell more records than any other previous 'Idol' winner." Cowell went on to say on the March 30 show that she has the "it factor" that will make her a star. The kingdom is a spiritual kingdom that people willingly enter through belief, spiritual rebirth, and carrying out the will of God.

On the March 22 show, after a performance of Heart's "Alone", Simon Cowell said, "Carrie, you're not just the girl to beat, you're the person to beat. The idea of God's Kingdom is found predominantly in the New Testament, specifically the Synoptic Gospels. After singing Martina McBride's "Independence Day" Simon Cowell said he couldn't believe no one has discovered her yet. This has been interpreted by believing Jews and Christians to mean that "King David's descendants, or his Descendant, the Jewish Messiah of Israel, would sit upon the Throne of David and rule for eternity". She can also play piano and yodel, the latter of which was demonstrated on the Tonight Show the night after she won. The Kingdom of God was expressly promised to the patriarch and prophet, King David, because he was a man "after God's own heart"; and God made the Davidic Covenant with King David, promising him that he would "never lack a man to sit upon His throne, forever". On the April 20 elimination show, Underwood demonstrated her ability to play the guitar. It is tied to Jewish understanding that God will intervene to restore the nation of Israel, and return to rule over them.

Underwood's musical influences include pop, but are predominantly country; she stated during Idol auditions that her favorite singer is Martina McBride. The Kingdom of God is referred to frequently in the Tanakh (see 1 Chronicles 29:10-12 and Daniel 4:3 for example).
