DescriptionKelly Clarkson found fame when she wowed judges on the first season of American Idol, going on to win the competition and a recording contract with RCA. Her debut single "A Moment Like This" subsequently rocketed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, breaking the record for the biggest jump to number one in the chart's history. Her first studio album Thankful was certified twice platinum by the RCA, and her follow up record, Breakaway, went 6x platinum and sold over 15 million copies worldwide. It also led to two Grammy Awards, including one for her hit single "Since U Been Gone." Clarkson's fifth album, Stronger, also won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, making her the first and only artist to win the accolade twice. The prolific singer, who has accumulated ninety-one number ones on the Billboard charts and eleven international number one singles, is set to release her new album Piece by Piece early this year.
