Biography

Fort Worth TX, United States (2002 – present)

Kelly Brianne Clarkson (born April 24, 1982 in Fort Worth, TX) is a Grammy-winning American and occasional actress. Clarkson recorded her debut album with RCA Records after having won the highly-publicized first season of the television series American Idol in 2002.

Though originally marketed as a musician, she eventually developed a more -oriented image. Her debut album, Thankful, was released in 2003 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 with almost 300,000 copies sold in its first week, now certified double platinum with over 4.5 million copies sold. Her first single, A Moment Like This, broke the record for largest leap to #1, shooting from #52 to #1, where it remained for two weeks. The second single, Miss Independent, was also a success, hitting #1 on the US Top 40 Mainstream chart and remaining there for six weeks. Further singles Low and The Trouble with Love Is were released but failed to mimic the success of her previous songs. However, Low managed to become a hit in Canada and reached #2. To date, Thankful has been certified 2x Platinum in the United States, Platinum in Canada and Gold in Australia.

Her second studio album, Breakaway, was released in 2004 and debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and also at #3 in the UK album charts. It is her biggest selling album to date, selling over 6 million copies in the US and 15 million worldwide, making it the most successful album released so far by an American Idol alumnus.

    "Piece by Piece" is the biggest reinvention of Kelly since Breakaway. This is HUGE!

    Ainda não sei em que posição ele fica na minha preferência, mas definitivamente esse álbum é MUITO bom. Eu amo o Stronger, mas esse superou ele.

    Quando ouvi Take You High estava no trânsito, tive que parar o meu carro, e me ajoelhar no asfalto e levantar os meus braços aos céus em Aleluia! Melhor música que ouço em décadas! Desde Silence do Delerium com a Sarah McLachlan!

    Piece by Piece is her worst album... As a long time fan,i feel sad that she has lost her ''edge'',Stronger was kind of boring too,but still it had catchy songs and her vocals were so out of this world,but Piece by Piece is just flat and even Kelly sounds bored. Invincible is only good song.
