American Idol sings “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee,” impresses
Kelly Clarkson, the original American Idol, was one of the performers at the Presidential Inauguration 2013, the public ceremony that sees Barack Obama start his second term with.The video above is of her performance of “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee,” which was sang before at a previous inauguration by Aretha Franklin.
While the rest of the world is talking about how former US President Bill Clinton photobombed Kelly right before she sang, I’d like to draw attention to this young lady’s incredible pipes and professionalism.
Her fans must remember that she was not even an Obama supporter at first, saying on social media she had every intention of voting for Ron Paul if he got the Republican nomination, which he didn’t.
All political differences aside, Kelly did not miss this opportunity to be part of such a historical moment and I bet you, just like me, are happy she didn’t because she did a very fine job with it.
