Carrie Underwood, a country girl from Checotah
Oklahoma, won American
Idol in 2005.
She delivered a number of brilliant performances that made Simon Cowell
predict that she would not only win the competition,
but would outsell all other previous Idol winners.
Carrie started singing at a very young age. At the age of three she
sang with her local church choir. This love for singing
stayed with her through high school and university. It was while she
was completing her studies in Mass Communication at Northeastern State
University that she travelled to St. Louis, Missouri to audition for
Carrie’s post Idol career has so far seen her albums sales go
multi-platinum around the world. It seems Simon Cowell may be able to
predict the future after all.
