Check out this behind the scenes look of country star Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer bringing the famous Von Trapp family to life in The Sound of Music Live! TV special. 

A holiday movie staple, The Sound of Music has been a favourite movie for people of all ages. Now, super country star Carrie Underwood is taking the reigns—following in Julie Andrews’ footsteps—of governess Maria in the made-for-TV movie version, filmed as a live musical.

As one of the most famous movie musicals of all time, The Sound of Music is based on the true story of the Trapp Family Singers and a governess who would change their lives forever. When budding nun Maria is forced to leave the convent by her Mother Superior, who feels she needs to learn something about the real world before she can take her vows, she is sent off to be the governess for the children of the widowed Captain Von Trapp.

Once there, Maria discovers that the family is cold and distant and misbehaved. Maria soon wins the heart of the children, especially oldest daughter Liesl, who is in love with teenaged messenger boy Rolf. As Maria herself begins to fall in love with the Captain, she rushes back to the Abbey so as not to complicate his impending marriage to a glamorous baroness. But the children insist that Maria return, to marry their father. But when the Nazis reach Austria the Captain makes plans for the family’s dangerous escape.

In this behind-the-scene feature, Underwood shows off her singing chops with the famous “These Are A Few of My Favourite Things” song, and talks about filming the special as a live musical.

Stephen Moyer (True Blood) stars as Captain Von Trapp and surprises fans with his remarkable singing voice. Who knew vampire Bill could sing?


The Sound of Music Live! TV special airs on December 5, 8 pm on NBC.
