In a time of protests, riots and social injustice, country superstar and ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee, Carrie Underwood voices her one wish in the newly released, uplifting anthem, “Let There Be Peace”. The beautiful track is the first taste of her upcoming Christmas album, My Gift, dropping next month on September 25th.
Although Underwood mentions Christmas in the second verse, the references to prayer, Jesus, and the backing gospel choir in the song make it more closely resemble a Christian song at its core. Underwood states that if she had one wish this Christmas, it wouldn’t be for presents under the tree, it would be to stop the crying and fighting in every nation.
“Let there be peace / Peace to every nation / Let there be hope / For all the world to see / Let there be love and joy to all the children / Let there be peace on earth for you and me”
Underwood has put out Christmas songs in the past including “Do You Hear What I Hear?” “The First Noel,” “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “What Child Is This?” and “O Holy Night.” My Gift will feature eleven songs, including “Let There Be Peace,” “O Holy Night,” and nine other classic Christmas songs. John Legend will join Underwood for a rendition of “Hallelujah,” and her son, Isaiah will be featured on the fourth track, “Little Drummer Boy.”
