The soundtrack to the upcoming version of "The Sound of Music" starring Carrie Underwood was released on Tuesday. Among the classics on the album, the most noteworthy moment is when Underwood takes on the signature title track.
Underwood will be starring in the Broadway version of "The Sound of Music" on Dec. 5 when NBC broadcasts the show live. She will play the role of Maria von Trapp (popularized by Julie Andrews in the 1965 film adaption). The most iconic moment of "The Sound of Music" play and movie is when von Trapp sings, "The hills are alive with the sound of music." Underwood takes on that signature tune in the upcoming live version.
Underwood might not have the lightness of Andrews' vocals but she gives an impassioned performance. Rodgers and Hammerstein's song finds new life with Carrie's rendition. She sings "The Sound of Music" with great power and control, finding her own footing on the classic track.
"The Sound of Music Live!" starring Underwood will be broadcast live on NBC on Dec. 5.
