As many of you know, the season finale to American Idol came recently where previous Idol winners were brought back to perform. One of those performers being Kelly Clarkson, who was the first season American Idol winner.
Following winning american idol, Carkson went on to be very successful,and start her own family. She’s even pregnant with another one who’s due shortly!
Clarkson’s performance was very emotional to the audience around her, it even had the judges crying.
But Kelly was the one who it really hit hard.
Clarkson sang an original song “Piece By Piece,” which she wrote about her father who was absent throughout all of her life, and her husband who has changed her life for the better and been the ultimate father to her daughter.
It was an incredible performance that came right from the heart. Clarkson had to stop singing at one point because she herself was in tears.
She recently did an interview with Glamour magazine, where she said, “It’s a positive song, even though I know it sounds sad. I don’t know what my father went through as a child, and I don’t know why he left and made the decisions he made, but everyone’s human. I don’t understand it for me, but I understand the depth of what that is—having a child—now, and he’s made me want to be that much more present in my family.”
This beautiful song just goes to show that Clarkson has grown physically and mentally as a person since being young without a father figure to look up to.
Grab your tissues now and check out this beautiful performance!
