Early Life

In Fort Worth, Texas, Kelly Brianne Clarkson was born on April 24, 1982. She is the youngest of three children, and her parents split, separating her from her siblings.

Kelly remained with her mother while her sister and brother moved in with other family members.

Clarkson’s upbringing was influenced by her religious convictions, as she was raised as a Southern Baptist. She joined the choir in middle school when she got her first taste of singing.

When Clarkson was in high school, she participated in many of the school’s talent shows and musicals. Kelly Clarkson was offered scholarships from many universities because of her vocal ability, but she turned them all down.

She was eager to devote her full attention to her musical career and wanted to get started as soon as possible.


When Clarkson left high school in 2000, she gave creating a demo reel top priority. To pay for the recording sessions, she worked a variety of jobs and attracted some interest from record labels.

She declined a few job offers because she feared being labeled and made into a commodity. In 2001, she relocated to Los Angeles in the hopes of finding additional opportunities.

She made a 5-track demo reel, but every record label she approached turned her down. She was compelled to go back home because of financial constraints. During this difficult time, she worked as a cocktail waitress and movie theater hostess.

Kelly Clarkson’s friends encouraged her to audition for “American Idol” soon after she got home.

The show’s creators were still winging it as the first season was in production. Clarkson eventually made it to the final round and won the entire competition, officially establishing her career.

Simon Fuller, the show’s creator, signed Clarkson to RCA Records as an “American Idol” champion. “A Moment Like This,” her debut hit, eventually reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100. In 2002, it was the single that sold the most copies in the country.

Film Career

Kelly Clarkson has worked in film since the start of her career. Her first major part was in the 2003 film “From Justin to Kelly,” which was critically panned.

Clarkson has also appeared on several TV shows, including reality shows like “The Voice” and subsequent seasons of “American Idol.”

Clarkson is also a prominent voice actor, having appeared in animated films such as “The Star” and “Trolls World Tour.” She also has her show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
