Kelly Clarkson Biography - Home-Grown Texas Songstress
The first winner of American Idol, Kelly Clarkson was raised Burleson, Texas. She discovered the power of music
at the age of eight while attending an African-American church in Fort Worth, an eye-opening experience that illustrated how
feelings can be manifested in song. Influenced by such musical exposure, Kelly Clarkson later incorporated a similar spirit
into her own work.
After a short sojourn in LA, the young singer returned to Texas and earned her way as a waitress. Kelly Clarkson was eventually
convinced by friends to enter American Idol in 2002 as one of 10,000 aspiring singers. Quickly earning the attention
of judges Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and the infamous Simon Cowell, Kelly Clarkson went on to win the competition with 58%
of the final audience voice.
Launching her career as an international superstar, American Idol brought not only overnight stardom but a handsome
record deal, allowing the songstress to begin building the Kelly Clarkson discography. Her first album, Thankful, was
released soon after the final, followed by the award-winning Breakaway in 2004. Over the years more albums have followed,
with Kelly Clarkson selling more than 20 million albums worldwide. These stunning sales figures make her the best-selling
artist in American Idol history, success only rivalled by fellow winner and country star Carrie Underwood.
