In Kelly Clarkson case, she took some major steps in her early year’s industry and because of that she had one of her songs become one of the top-selling songs in the country and she has won for herself several Grammy awards.
The Early and Family Life
Kelly was born in Fort Worth, Texas. She was born on the 24th day of April 1982 into the family of Jeanne Ann and Stephen Michael.
Kelly Clarkson age is currently 39 years. While she was yet a young girl, her parents had a divorce but she happens to be the youngest product of that marriage that resulted in the birth of three children. Of the three children that were the product of the marriage, Kelly was the only one that lived with her mom while one of the other two went on to live with an aunt and the other went to live with her father.
Even though from a broken home, Clarkson was the kind of girl that was very proximate to church as she was actively involved in Church activities. At some point in time, she was the leader of a youth group in Church and she was always attending weekly and Sunday services.
While Kelly was in middle school, she had mastered the act of singing alone, and on one of those occasions when she was doing her rehearsals, one of her teachers overheard her singing and asked to audition to join the school choir. She eventually joined the school choir and this created a vibe in her that she carried through her high school education.
As at the time she was in high school, she was already actively involved in numerous musical events and she kept on getting better with each passing event. One of those days while she was singing at the high school event, one of the members of the audience walked up to her to share a word of encouragement about her gift for singing, and she took this short words of advise to heart as she began practicing for a better life with the gift that God has given her.
At the close of high school and just when she was at the verge of heading to college, Texas University offered her a full scholarship to attend the school and it was because of her gift of singing but she refused the scholarship on the ground that she would like to have a career in singing. It was supposed to be a very hard choice given the fact that it was a scholarship from a renowned University, but because she had a goal to make a life out of her passion, she chose to refuse the scholarship and accept her passion.
While she had graduated from high school, she had to do a couple of jobs to sponsor her professional musical life, and soon enough she was able to gather enough money to travel to Los Angeles in a bid to find the greener pastures for her goal. At that time when she was working, she had the opportunity of getting a call from Jive records as regards getting signed with the popular record label, but she turned it down with the belief that if she had signed to that record label, they would have limited her propensity to become a superstar that she wanted to be.
She nevertheless traveled to Los Angeles where she was able to two times as an act in a Tv program as well as record a couple of songs with a renowned music figure in Los Angeles. While she was at Los Angeles, she had plans of selling her content out to many musical platforms, but she was often turned down by many of them who complained that her vocals sounded too black. In all honesty, this was meant to be a kind of major setback for her, but she nevertheless kept on trying regardless of the backdrop that she had. The last straw that broke the Camel’s back for her in Los Angeles, was when her apartment got engulfed by an inferno, and with this, she was forced to go back home while she started working with Red Bull Energy drink and also worked at a comedy house.
