Metz, 38, performed the song after an intro delivered by Underwood. I’m Standing with You, a song written by Diane Warren, is from the soundtrack of Metz’s upcoming film, Breakthrough, Underwood explained.
Breakthrough follows the inspiring story of Joyce Smith (played by Metz), a mother who, through the power of prayer, was able to gather help for her son after an accident where he fell into icy water and almost drowned.
Metz co-stars in the upcoming faith-based film with Josh Lucas as Brian Smith, Marcel Ruiz as John Smith, Topher Grace as Pastor Jason Noble, Sam Trammell as Dr. Kent Sutterer, and Dennis Haysbert as Doctor Garrett.
The film, written by Grant Nieporte, was directed by Roxann Dawson.
Becki Cross Trujillo, Stephen Curry, and Samuel Rodriguez served as executive producers.
According to Underwood, the song is about “keeping the faith through odds that seem insurmountable.”
After Underwood’s intro, Metz, who looked stunning in a blue satin dress, took to the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena to deliver her stirring performance of the song.
She was joined by Underwood and other country music stars, including Lauren Alania, Maddie & Tae, and Mickey Guyton.
The packed audience at the arena applauded enthusiastically after the performance. Fans also took to social media to lavish praises on Metz and Underwood’s performance.
