Idol Hopeful Alyssa Wray Sings 'Something In The Water' Before Duet With Katharine McPhee

If there’s one thing Carrie Underwood knows how to do, it’s how to capture millions with her faith in our amazing God and of course, her voice. Carrie is one of the most iconic performers in country music. She got her start on American Idol so it’s no surprise that hopeful singers who audition for shows like The Voice choose her songs. This includes idol hopeful Alyssa Wray singing, ‘Something In The Water,’ before sharing a duet with Katharine McPhee.

Like Carrie, Katharine also was born into fame on the stage. She was the runner-up on the fifth season of American Idol. Katharine’s first self-titled album was blessed by God’s hands as it stayed at number two on the Billboards in 2010. Since then, she’s released several other albums too. This inspiring singer also created a hybrid career as a singer and actress!

But enough about Katharine. Let’s talk about this duet. Alyssa Wray is a 19-year-old attending Northern Kentucky University. She is majoring in music theater but opted to put her voice to use when she took the plunge to audition for American Idol. After she made it onto the show, she voiced her thoughts on Twitter. "You guys, I can’t believe it’s here. Not gonna lie I’m a little nervous...but I can’t wait to share tonight with you all,” she wrote. But that’s only because she gets to sing for millions and sing with one of her mentors, Katharine.

What happens next on stage is nothing short of amazing, astounding, and stunning. After Alyssa performs Carrie Underwood’s song, the duo transitions into a magical performance of Whitney Houston's 'I'm Your Baby Tonight.' It’s as if the pair had meant to sing the song together. They received a standing ovation from viewers, judges, and fans alike! Judge Lionel Richie captured what we were all thinking, “Watching the two of you together was like trying to keep a cap on a volcano!”

We agree with you Lionel, we certainly couldn’t agree more! Can Alyssa top this performance? We think so, she was born for this!

“I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations” Psalm 89:1.
