    Carrie Underwood to be Honored at Muhammad Ali's Celebrity Fight Night

    Carrie Underwood to be Honored at Muhammad Ali's Celebrity Fight Night - Hollywood Reporter

    Carrie Underwood is headed to the Sonoran Desert this spring as one of the honorees and performers at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night.

    Fellow performers include Brooks and Dunn, David Foster, The Tenors, Sinbad and others. The event is scheduled for April 9 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix.

    Another country superstar, Reba McEntire, is confirmed to host the festivities, marking the 11th consecutive year that she’s hosted the black-tie event. Also making another trip is David Foster, who returns to serve as musical director. Carson Palmer, Dr. Francis Yeoh, Yank Barry and the Argyros family will all be honored alongside Underwood.

    The Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night Awards were established as a way to acknowledge leaders in the sports, entertainment and business communities who best represent the qualities associated with the Alis' fight to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Award recipients from years past include Halle Berry, Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin, Robert De Niro, Kevin Costner, Magic Johnson, Jim Carrey, Forest Whitaker, Donald Trump, Clive Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Evander Holyfield.

    Wonderful honor. She's involved in most categories -- music/entertainment, SNF (sports), and her many charitable endeavors. Well deserved!!!!!

    Nice!!
    Wonder she visited the Muhammad Ali Center when she was in town.
    It's pretty much across the street from the hotel she stayed at.

    Nice! I never heard of this or realized Carrie did charity work for Parkinson's disease. Is this associated with Michael J Fox?

    I don't believe she has, or it is

    Mohammad has suffered from Parkinson's and led the search for a cure for many years. If Carrie has a connection (aside from her wonderful qualities that earned the award) it is probably Linda Ronstadt.

    I am so proud of Carrie. The recognition she receives by such a wide variety of sources speaks volumes to who she is personally and professionally. Such an inspiration.

    I so agree with this. I am as proud of her as an individual with so much character and compassion for others as I am of her incredible talent!!

    I'm guessing that this isn't shown on TV, so I hope that someone will video it and we might be able to see something that way. But I do hope that we at least get some photos of this night.

    Oh wow. I forgot about Linda. That is a good point. Perhaps Carrie quietly did some charity work for Parkinsons' after she heard about Linda.
