Watch Kelly Clarkson Cover 'Cool For The Summer' For Demi Lovato's Birthday
After making a surprise announcement that she's expecting her second child during her show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Wednesday (Aug. 19), Clarkson mentioned it was Lovato's birthday the following day. Referring to Lovato as one of her girls, she gave a little history of their pop-diva friendship.
"She's always been so supportive and so cool," Clarkson said. “To see a kid that used to go to my shows have this huge, lustrous career...she’s just killin’ it. I thought I would, for her birthday, sing 'Cool For The Summer.'"
Clarkson slowed the uptempo hit down to more of a ballad, backed with a piano and acoustic guitar. Of course, Clarkson's vocals made the cover a gift to us all.
Once the original "Cool For The Summer" singer caught wind of Clarkson's dedication, she took to Twitter to express her joy.
