Carrie Underwood reflects on singing with son, 5, on Christmas album: ‘Such a gift’

Carrie Underwood seems to have another singer in the family — her 5-year-old son, Isaiah.The Grammy-winner and her firstborn duet for “Little Drummer Boy” on her first-ever full-length Christmas album, “My Gift,” and the experience is something that Underwood will never forget. The former “American Idol” winner, 37, told Parade magazine she went in open-minded and didn’t want to put pressure on Isaiah. “I went in and started recording that song and I recorded it by myself and kind of as we were rolling into it I was like, ‘All right, I have this crazy idea and it might not work and he might not even want to do it, but what if he came in and sang with me?'” she explained.CARRIE UNDERWOOD, JOHN LEGEND DEBUT ‘HALLELUJAH’ MUSIC VIDEO”And I think everybody thought, oh, yeah, he can just kind of, you know, sing along with you. And in my brain it was a proper duet. So I’m like, ‘No, here’s my idea, just roll with me and it might not work at all and that’s OK, but we can give it a shot’ because he’s just who I think of when I sing that song. His little face pops into my head. So we got him in and he just did such a great job. And to get to have that moment with him and share that with him…and I now have that forever. I have his little voice. It’s going to be with me forever. I get to listen to it whenever I want and that’s such a gift in itself,” Underwood said.

But whatever his path is, I feel like we’ll support it and just want him to give it his all.”CARRIE UNDERWOOD, MIKE FISHER SAY THEIR FAITH HELPS THEM OVERCOME THEIR DIFFERENCESFisher is a retired professional hockey player.
