As I meantioned in an earlier blog today, this Coronavirus has sparked necessary creativity in delivering content from artists and celebrities.
Kelly Clarkson has been a complete classic. While quarantining her family in her Montana cabin (based on the numbers…good idea, wish we all could), she’s been posting accapella “Kellyoke” songs from her bathroom there (best acoustics in the house, y’all) since her talk show is on hiatus.
Clarkson decided to honor the late Kenny Rogers in her latest edition. “I was planning on doing (a different song), and then Kenny Rogers passed and I thought I would honor him. What a beautiful man. Beautiful songwriter. Beautiful singer. Actor. He did all of the things,” Kelly (sans all makeup and pretentiousness) said before belting out her favorite song from Rogers, “Sweet Music Man.”
I love this song so much. And it is very underrated in his long and lengthy catalog.
Clarkson called the song “pretty” and promised to do less depressing songs in future “Kellyoke” videos. Kenny Rogers died on Friday, (March 20th) he was 81.
