Country singer Carrie Underwood took on the classic Broadway play "The Sound of Music" on Thursday night. She played the part of Maria von Trapp and sang many of the show's tunes including the signature title track.

Underwood starred in the Broadway version of "The Sound of Music" when NBC broadcasted the show live. She played the role of Maria von Trapp (popularized by Julie Andrews in the 1965 film adaption). A highlight in any of the versions is when von Trapp sings, "The hills are alive with the sound of music." Underwood opened "The Sound of Music Live!" with that classic song on Thursday night.

As von Trapp, Underwood sings "The Sound of Music" in the forest-like area. Underwood might not have the lightness of Andrews' vocals but she gave an impassioned performance. She sang the title track with great power and control, finding her own footing.

Along with "The Sound of Music," Underwood also sang other songs like "Maria" and "Do-Re-Mi." To see more performances from "The Sound of Music Live!," click here to visit NBC's YouTube page.
