Even the most vocal of songbirds need to rest their pipes.
Kelly Clarkson just announced that she has canceled the rest the remaining “Piece By Piece” tour dates in Canada and England to stay on vocal rest. “Unfortunately my doctor is telling me I have to stay on vocal rest, but I am working hard to get better as fast as possible,” she announced on her website. Clarkson also cancelled a string of U.S. dates in mid-September as well.
What’s the best way to send her some serious Get Getter Juju than to appreciate the audible magic that is Kelly Clarkson’s voice? The expectant Grammy winner takes song requests from fans on tour, and has essentially Kelly-fied your playlist! Here are some of my favorites! Listen and then take a moment to send her some much-deserving love!
No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak”
You may not have been born when this song was popular, but “Don’t Speak” used to be everyone’s go-to pity party theme song. Now, it’s given a bewitching spit-shine, thanks to Clarkson’s dynamic chops.
Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River”
This angry break-up song from Timberlake’s white-hot first solo album has been recharged with scathing lightning in Clarkson's rendition. Hell hath no fury, and all that.
Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”
Clarkson transform’s last year’s inescapable pop ditty into a soulful, church anthem that’s lightyears beyond the original.
