Brandon Heath Gives Surprise Performance At Carrie Underwood And Mike Fisher's Wedding
Posted: Friday July 16th, 2010
Nashville's GRAMMY® nominated singer/songwriter Brandon Heath recently performed his affectionate tune "Love Never Fails" at Country music superstar Carrie Underwood's wedding to NHL Ottawa Senator Mike Fisher. Noted as the couple's song, Heath's performance of "Love Never Fails" served as the couple's first dance, and was a surprise from Underwood to her new husband.
"I was blessed to be part of Carrie and Mike's big day," says Heath. "Being among their family and friends, I was honoured to have been a witness to something so sacred and special. Performing at weddings can be nerve racking, but Saturday I felt right at home. And it was especially cool to be in on Carrie's surprise for her groom and their first dance."
