‘The Voice’ Coach Kelly Clarkson Covers Ed Sheeran Hit
This stunning cover just shows there is a reason why Kelly won American Idol back in 2002. Her incredible voice was on full display performing with a live band on The Kelly Clarkson Show. While it was refreshing to finally see Kelly performing live and not virtually, the raw emotions and tremendous vocals she showcased in this cover were stunning. The final note of the song was literally perfect.
Fans in the comments section absolutely fell in love with this cover. “She wasn’t covering this song. She was telling her story” one fan said. “I love how Kelly has her own show and is like ‘yeah ima sing, y’all listen up'” said another.
“After all these covers you would think other artists would be just crashing her door down to work with her??” one fan wondered. Another said “If I could speak for Ed Sheeran, I would hope he would say that Kelly just did an awesome rendition of ‘Perfect.'”
Kelly Continues To Perform Emotional And Touching Covers Amid Divorce
Kelly has been going through a hard time in her life after she filed for divorce from her husband of nearly seven years, Brandon Blackstock. She has since been performing covers of songs with emotional messages on The Kelly Clarkson Show. Previously, her cover of the Rascal Flatts song “I’m Movin’ On.” The title in itself had people talking because they think she is ready to do just that, move on.
“If u notice she started the week singing Sam Smith’s ‘How Do You Sleep,’ then Patty Loveless ‘Blame It on My Heart,’ then Ashe’s ‘Moral of The Story,’ and leading up to Rascal Flatts ‘I’m Movin On’… She’s telling us her story…I think she will be fine but u can tell right now she is having a hard time. This may be the best way for her to talk (ie; sing) it out” one fan said on YouTube.
The powerhouse also took on “I’m Like A Bird” by Nelly Furtado. Kelly wore her heart on her sleeve as she flawlessly belted out some powerful lyrics. “It’s not that I want to say goodbye / It’s just that every time you try to tell me / that you love me / I’m like a bird / I’ll only fly away,” she sang. It really gets the gears moving in your head because The Voice coach is essentially moving on from her marriage.
