Kelly Clarkson, a former American Idol winner, recently commemorated her 20th triumph on social media. The singer took to Instagram on Sunday and shared a lengthy thank-you statement for her friends, family, and supporters. “Twenty years ago today I won American Idol and it forever changed the course of my life,” she wrote in the post.
Continuing the heartfelt statement, she wrote, “That moment was the door that opened up so much access and opportunity, and creative partnerships that I will be grateful for all of my days. The family and friendships I have created over these 20 years in music and TV are priceless to me.”
“I am most proud and grateful for those friends that have become family, and for their arms that have held me when I needed it and their hearts that listened to me when I felt lost. Without them I would not be where I am. I would probably not be here at all,” explained the Stronger songstress.
For those who are unaware, the singer-songwriter apparently took part in the 2002 season of the singing competition program. The singer also extended her appreciation to her supporters, who helped her in whatever way they could, adding, “Thank you so much to every single person that voted 20 years ago”.
