Noel meets country music star Carrie Underwood

Noel meets Carrie Underwood

“ She still sometimes cannot believe she actually met her country idol…but she has the autographs and photos to prove it! ”

Noel, age 12, loves to listen to country music, read, hang out with her friends and play with her puppy. She is even writing her own book. Noel’s favorite country artist is Carrie Underwood. When she was asked what her one wish would be, she did not hesitate--she said she wanted to meet Carrie Underwood. With the help of her wish granters, Noel, her parents and younger brother flew off to Orlando, Florida on a pre-Christmas vacation during which her wish would be fulfilled.

In Orlando, Noel and her family were picked up from their hotel by a limousine and taken to the UCF Arena well before the concert’s show time. Noel happily sat in on the rehearsals and watched Carrie Underwood’s band warm up. After hearing the band rehearse, Carrie popped up on stage and waved to Noel and her family who were sitting in the third row. After rehearsing several songs, Noel and her family were invited onto the stage to meet Carrie! While everyone was on the stage, Carrie sang the Christmas song, “The First Noel” with a dedication to Noel.

Following rehearsals, Carrie visited more with Noel and her family. Noel had a list of ten questions that she wanted to ask; Carrie answered each one with a lot of thought and detail as Noel beamed with excitement during each answer. Carrie autographed two souvenir items that Noel brought along, and even provided additional autographs on paper so that Noel can give them to her friends back home. After taking some photographs together, Carrie wished Noel well and went off for the concert performance. During the show, Noel smilingly sang along from her special audience seat with Carrie.

The following day, Noel and her family went to SeaWorld, where everyone fed the dolphins and touch other sea animals. It was a fun and exciting day for everyone. After coming home, Noel was eager to share her story with her friends and show them the photos from her trip.
