The following Wednesday (April 12), Nashville was host to “A Night of Joy Celebrating the Covenant School,” another charity event featuring a lineup of musical artists that included Tomlin, Steven Curtis Chapman, Matt Maher, and Carrie Underwood, among others.

All proceeds from the concert will go to the students, staff, and families of The Covenant School.

Underwood, who was the final performer of the evening, chose to sing her 2014 hit “Something in the Water,” a song written from the perspective of a newly baptized Christian.

“I had no idea what I was going to sing tonight,” Underwood said to introduce the song. “But it is a night of joy, and I thought, ‘What’s the most joyful song I have?’ I think I landed on it. I hope I did. If you know it, sing along. If you don’t, sing something. Make a joyful noise.”

“Couldn’t fight back the tears, so I fell on my knees, sayin’, ‘God if you’re there come and rescue me,’” Underwood sang. “Felt love pourin’ down from above. Got washed in the water, washed in the blood. And now I’m changed. And now I’m stronger. There must be somethin’ in the water.”
