Kelly Clarkson has been treating fans to special interpretations of her favorite songs during her Kellyoke covers segment of The Kelly Clarkson Show. On Tuesday (Nov. 19), Clarkson opened the episode with a soulful rendition of Brandi Carlile’s “The Story.”
Released more than a decade ago, “The Story” had Clarkson showing off her trademark pipes as she belted the heartfelt number. Delicate strums of the electric guitar kicked off the song before cameras panned to a dimly lit Clarkson who’s vocal range was highlighted on the poignant love song.
Segueing effortlessly from a whisper to a belt on the song’s chorus, Clarkson’s vocal power was apparent on the stunning cover.
“The Story” was featured on Carlile’s 2007 sophomore album. The song’s notoriety grew following it being featured on Grey’s Anatomy as well as being covered by LeAnn Rimes and Dolly Parton on their own albums.
The Kelly Clarkson Show airs weekdays. Clarkson’s cover of “The Story” is below.
