Two-time Olympic ski racing champion Mikaela Shiffrin unplugs by singing and playing guitar.

She recently sang in front of a social media audience tuned in for an online charity concert.

Her performance was smooth just like she is on the race course. Music was always a bond she shared with her late father, Jeff. He died on Feb. 2 after an accident at his home in Colorado.

Right along with nurturing her passion for songs and the slopes, her father instilled the motto of being nice.

Shiffrin announced a partnership with Madison Keys as she joined the tennis standout in their lineup of “Champions” for “Kindness Wins.” It's a platform with the mission of spreading good will.
