Carrie Underwood makes a surprise guest appearance in season four of the Netflix series, Cobra Kai.
In the season finale, the multi-award winner performs the classic hit, The Moment of Truth. Written by Bill Conti, Dennis Lambert, and Peter Beckett, the song was originally recorded by iconic 80s rock band Survivor for The Karate Kid original movie soundtrack and played over that film’s end credits.
Underwood says, “I love Cobra Kai so much and was absolutely thrilled when they invited me to be a part of the penultimate episode of season 4. Adding Survivor’s iconic The Moment of Truth to the mix was very cool, as I loved the original Karate Kid movie soundtrack. I love all the nostalgia with Cobra Kai, and it’s an honour to be a small part of this legacy.”
Underwood’s turbocharged interpretation is produced by Cobra Kai series composers Leo Birenberg and Zach Robinson and appears on Cobra Kai: Season 4 (Soundtrack From The Netflix Original Series), available on Madison Gate Records as a two-volume set with nearly two hours of music. Both volumes are available digitally and as a deluxe edition 2-disc CD set.
Cobra Kai takes place over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament with the continuation of the inescapable conflict between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). Cobra Kai is written and executive produced by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg via their production company, Counterbalance Entertainment. Will Smith, James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett executive produce for Westbrook Entertainment along with Susan Ekins in association with Sony Pictures Television. Macchio and Zabka also serve as executive producers.
From executive producers/series creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg: “When we set out to present the biggest, boldest, most explosive All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament of all time, we knew we had to reach for the stars and pull out all the stops. Having Carrie surprise the audience with her unadulterated charisma and musical adrenaline was a dream collaboration and such a special moment for the franchise.”
The first four seasons of Cobra Kai are now streaming on Netflix. The series has been renewed for a fifth season.
