BC: I chose Carrie Underwood for many reasons. One would be that she has accomplished so much. She started out with nothing, on a farm and she went onto American Idol to pursue her dream. Even though she is famous, she avoids getting caught up into all the drama that comes with it. Unlike most other celebrities, Carrie doesn't usually have anything bad said about her, in magazines, television shows, etc. I also like Carrie because she sings country music, which is my favorite. She is an amazing singer as well. Also, Carrie doesn't forget about all the people who she can help. With all the money she makes, she donates it to many causes. Always remembering her family, friends and hometown really shows Carrie's character. That is why i wanted to do this project on no one else but Carrie Underwood.
