Carrie Underwood Performs Emotional Song With ‘This Is Us’ Star Chrissy Metz

Chrissy Metz

Chrissy Metz sang her song “I’m Standing With You” from her upcoming movie Breakthrough and was joined onstage by country stars Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, Mickey Guyton and Maddie & Tae.

The song appears on the soundtrack for Breakthrough, a new faith-based film based on the story of a mother whose teenage son drowned and came back to life after she prayed over his body. Metz plays the mother, Joyce Smith, and co-stars with Topher Grace, Josh Lucas and Marcel Ruiz.

Metz also told The Tennessean that performing with Underwood is “one of those bucket list moments” she never thought would happen. “Standing on stage with five incredible women who are brilliant vocalists and artists is beyond thrilling,” she added.

The Breakthrough soundtrack includes “Love Wins” by Underwood and Maddie & Tae’s “People Need People.” Other artists who contributed include Taylor Mosby, Phil Whickham, Pigeon John, Adam Hambrick, Jukebox the Ghost, Darius Rucker, Alaina and Guyton.

Breakthrough was written by Grant Nieporte and directed by Roxann Dawson. It was based on Smith’s memoir The Impossible and was filmed during a break between This Is Us seasons. Metz said once she read the script, she wanted to tell the story.
