Country singer Carrie Underwood has inspired all of us with her faith-infused way to stardom.
From her church-choir roots in rural Oklahoma to her amazing performance of a Christian hymn at the CMAs, she’s remained real and humble to her faith regardless of the bright lights of the stage.
Carrie Underwood donated $10,000 to the GoFundMe page for an Oklahoma police officer, who was injured last week in a rollover crash that left him with a broken neck.
Underwood made the donation under her married name, Carrie Fisher, on the GoFundMe campaign Saturday for Checotah Assistant Police Chief Justin Durrett. The officer was heading to work on Feb. 11 when his truck slid off the road and crashed.
Durrett was ejected from his vehicle. He suffered a broken neck, bruised spine and multiple gashes on his head, according to the GoFundMe page. He remains in the Intensive Care Unit and can’t feel anything from his chest down.
Underwood is a childhood friend of Durrett’s, and they attended church together, KOMO News reported.
The 34-year-old singer’s donation will help Durrett’s family pay for medical bills.
The generous donation all helped push the fund to $12,965 as of Tuesday. The campaign’s goal was set to $20,000.
