Album of the Day
When Kelly Clarkson won the inaugural American Idol competition twenty years ago, it was only the first victory for the Texas-born vocalist. On this day in 2019, The Kelly Clarkson Show premiered on TV and the variety talk program has earned more than a dozen Daytime Emmy Awards. Most episodes include a cover song performed by Clarkson, and that popular feature provided the inspiration for the new KELLYOKE. The six tracks on the Atlantic EP range from classic country (Roy Orbison's “Blue Bayou”) to R&B (Whitney Houston's “Queen of the Night”) to contemporary indie pop (Billie Eilish's “Happier Than Ever”). KELLYOKE offers an irresistible taste of the versatility that made Kelly Clarkson a star.
