Kelly Brianne Clarkson (born April 24, 1982) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and author.
She rose to fame in 2002 after winning the inaugural season of the television series American Idol, which earned her a record deal with RCA Records.
Clarkson turned down two recording contracts from Jive Records and Interscope Records, stating "They would have completely pigeonholed me as a bubblegum act.
In 2001, she traveled to Los Angeles, trying to pursue a career in music.
Clarkson has also ventured into film, television, and writing children's books. But I think I’ve just gotten a lot closer just because He’s the only one I can lean on." Clarkson was educated at Pauline Hughes Middle School and in the seventh grade, the school's choir teacher, Cynthia Glenn, overheard her singing in a hallway and asked her to audition for the school choir.
Clarkson told her that she had never received any professional vocal training.
Upon returning to Burleson, Clarkson was encouraged by her friends to audition for the inaugural season of the reality television series American Idol: The Search for a Superstar in May 2002. I definitely looked like a cocktail waitress." Clarkson went on to win the competition on September 4, 2002 at the then Kodak Theatre (now Dolby), earning 58% of the votes against runner-up Justin Guarini and without being sent into the bottom three throughout the season.
Often called one of the best vocalists in the industry, Clarkson is known for her powerhouse voice, as well as her versatility, which enables her to record crossover music.After debuting at number 60 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the single climbed to number 52 the following week, and subsequently ascended to number one.It broke a 38-year-old record set by the British band The Beatles for the biggest leap to number one.All Music critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine praised the album for its vocal ability: "throughout this record, (Clarkson) makes it seem effortless and charming.She can croon, she can belt out a song, she can be sexy and sassy while still being graceful and as wholesome as the girl next door." Its lead single, "Miss Independent", became her first international hit—charting in the top ten in five national charts, including the US., and was later certified gold by the RIAA.
