WATCH Kelly Clarkson Slay A Whitney Houston Cover Like Only She Can!

Jill O'Rourke | Talent Recap

We can’t get enough of Kelly Clarkson’s “Kellyoke” segments on her talk show. Kelly’s song covers were a big hit on her concert tour, and she’s since brought the tradition into her show.

In a recent segment, Kelly covered “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” by Whitney Houston, from the Waiting to Exhale movie soundtrack. Whitney Houston is obviously not an easy artist to cover, but Kelly made it look effortless.

Kelly Clarkson Covers Whitney Houston

Kelly appeared remotely while her band performed in the studio. Even though they weren’t in the same place, they ended up sounding amazing. Kelly hit more than a few stunning high notes.

“Ooh, great soundtrack!” Kelly declared when the performance was over. The 1995 movie, starring Angela Bassett and Whitney herself, also features songs by Brandy and Mary J. Blige.

Fans were clearly loving this latest cover, with one YouTube commenter writing, “I feel like I just witnessed the gymnastic of vocals at the Olympics. Her vocals did some crazy flips and landed each flip perfectly.”

“Someone once said when they heard Whitney sing the best way to describe it was truth,” another fan wrote. They said they feel the same way about how Kelly sings.

Recently, some fans thought Kelly might be sharing the story of her divorce through the songs she chose to cover, including “Movin’ On” by Rascal Flatts. Before that, fans suggested that Kelly’s choice to sing “I’m Like a Bird” by Nelly Furtado was a way of saying she had spread her wings to fly away from ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

Whether or not Kelly Clarkson is trying to send a message with her song choices, we love hearing her cover songs by these amazing artists. It’s no wonder she’s so good at coaching singers on The Voice each season.
