Kelly-Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson’s versatility and dynamic vocal range have made her into one of the most successful artists of her generation. She shot to fame in 2002, when she won the very first season of ‘American Idol.’ Her debut album, ‘Thankful,’ was an instant success, and Clarkson has gone on to a long and varied career that includes hits like ‘Miss Independent,’ ‘Since U Been Gone’ and ‘My Life Would Suck Without You.’ She has displayed an interest in country, recording ‘Because of You’ with Reba McEntire in 2007, ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ with Jason Aldean in 2010, and ‘Don’t Rush’ with Vince Gill in 2012. She also worked with Reba and Trisha Yearwood on ‘Silent Night’ in 2013. Clarkson became a member of the country music family — literally — on Oct. 20, 2013, when she married Reba’s stepson, Brandon Blackstock. In June of 2014 she gave birth to the couple’s first child, a daughter named River Rose.
