Last Friday, Atlantic City and all the victims of the recent hurricane superstorm Sandy devastation got some relief from country superstar Carrie Underwood. According to the Press of Atlantic City, Carrie told the crowd on Friday night that she wouldn’t feel right making a profit off a show in an area of such devastation, and that she would be donating all profits from the show to those in need locally. In Atlantic City that night, it wasn’t just about Carrie putting on a show-stopping performance for the crowd, it was also about giving back. “We’re so glad to be here, and even more glad to be here this evening,” Carrie informed the crowd. “You know, after something like this, you wonder whether the show should go on. We thought, this building was still here, so it must be here for a reason.”
After the show, Carrie tweeted this message to her Atlantic City fans:
@carrieunderwood: Thank you beautiful Atlantic City! You all made my year! You have been through so much and still rocked the house! I leave in awe! Thanks!
Carrie has also been donating $1 from each ticket sale on the Blown Away Tour to the Red Cross since September.
Carrie’s next Blown Away tour stop is tonight at the Penn State Bryce Jordan Center in State College, PA.
