Educational background of Kelly Clarkson
Pauline Hughes Middle School was where Clarkson received her education. Cynthia Glenn, the school’s choir director, noticed her singing in the corridor in seventh grade and invited her to audition for the school chorus. Clarkson said that she had never undergone any formal vocal classes.
In 2000, Clarkson graduated from Burleson High School. There she appeared in Annie Get Your Gun, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Brigadoon, among other musicals. She performed in her high school talent event. Someone from the audience gave her these encouraging words: “This is a gift from God. You have to sing. You were born to sing.” Clarkson kept singing and eventually began classical training in the hopes of winning a college scholarship via music.
Early life and family
Kelly Brianne Clarkson was born to first-grade English teacher Jeanne Ann (née Rose) and retired engineer Stephen Michael Clarkson. With a brother called Jason and a sister named Alyssa, she is the youngest of three children.
Clarkson’s father’s second marriage gave her two younger half brothers. When her parents split, she was six years old, her brother moved in with their father, her sister with an aunt, and she remained with her mother. Jimmy Taylor later remarried Clarkson’s mother.
Clarkson grew up as a devout Southern Baptist. She’s stated, “I always grew up in church. I was the leader of our youth group. I’ve always grown up pretty close to the church and with God. But I think I’ve just gotten a lot closer just because He’s the only one I can lean on.” “My family was highly conservative; I had to go to church on Sunday and Wednesday,” she later stated of her upbringing.
Clarkson took multiple jobs after college to fund a demo, record material, and attempt to sell it to record labels. She received no response. Clarkson declined two record deals from Jive Records and Interscope Records, stating, “They would have completely pigeonholed me as a bubblegum act. I was confident enough that something better would come along.”
