Carrie Underwood attends the 6th Annual Pedigree Adoption Drive at Bidawee Manhattan Shelter in New York City
The scene is set in Thailand just after the Tsunami and both girls could be seen handing out water and looking after the children affected.
From Access Hollywood:
Carrie has been cast in her first studio movie, “Soul Surfer,” Access Hollywood has learned. The movie is based on the life of 19-year-old champion surfer Bethany Hamilton who, for over six years, has defied all odds to compete and win professional championships after losing her arm in a shark attack at age thirteen.
The former “American Idol” has been cast as Sarah Hill, a church youth leader.
The movie also stars AnnaSophia Robb as Bethany Hamilton, Helen Hunt as Bethany’s mother Cheri and Dennis Quaid as Bethany’s father Tom.
In addition, Jack Nicholson’s 19-year-old daughter, Lorraine, has landed the role of Hamilton’s best friend, Alana Blanchard, who was with Hamilton the day of the attack. Kevin Sorbo has been cast as Holt Blanchard.
Carrie Underwood is nervous she’ll make a performance fumble at this Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Said the singer, 26, who will sing the National Anthem, “My biggest fear is the words.
“Of course you know the words,” she continued to USA Today. “But if you’re going to mess up, that’d be the time, right?”
Underwood — who says she’ll be rooting for the Saints — also joked about her fave new song: “Pants on the Ground,” as performed by General Larry Platt on American Idol two weeks ago.
“As a songwriter I know we all aspire to write something that is catchy and has a message,” she said. “And I think the youth of America can learn a lot from Pants on the Ground. And they can pull their pants up… because it causes all kinds of back problems. I’ve seen the studies.”

Was it love at first sight when Carrie Underwood met her future fiance Mike Fisher in October 2008?
The country star isn’t saying, but when the pair were set up by friends to meet backstage at a Toronto concert, Underwood fretted about the hockey player.
“I made sure he came in with some other people,” she says in the March issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. “I was like, ‘what if he’s weird?’”
The matchmaking worked, of course: Underwood, 26, and Fisher, 29, confirmed their engagement Dec. 21 of last year. The singer has been flashing her flawless yellow diamond ring by Jonathon Arndt– worth about $150,000 — during the current awards season.
Underwood tells Cosmopolitan that Fisher “provided a lot of inspiration for songs” on her new album Play On, “whether it was something he said or just by being supportive.”
The busy couple hopes to have their wedding sometime this summer. And though she’s got a new tour coming up and just signed on to star in her first film Soul Surfer, Underwood maintains that she wants a work/life balance. “I didn’t want to be one of those people who has an amazing career but ends up alone and unhappy,” she tells Cosmo. “I want to be happy. I want it all.”
