She gained notoriety in 2002 when she won the inaugural season of American Idol and signed a record deal with RCA. Her first studio album, Thankful, which came out in 2003, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.

From the show’s fourteenth to twenty-first seasons, Clarkson also coached contestants on The Voice. As of 2019, she has also hosted her own talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show. In addition to her many honors, Clarkson has won five Daytime Emmy Awards, four American Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, and three MTV Video Music Awards.
American singer, songwriter, and reality television sensation Kelly Clarkson has a $45 million fortune. Kelly Clarkson is best recognized for her music, which she developed as a result of her participation in the reality TV program “American Idol.” In addition to her success in the entertainment industry, Clarkson’s high net worth is the consequence of a number of wise financial decisions. She was also a successful author, especially in the field of children’s literature.
She has two of her own children as well as two (ex) stepchildren. Savannah and Seth, who were born in 2002 and 2006 respectively, and Brandon Blackstock’s other two children, became stepchildren after Kelly married him in 2013. The first child Kelly and Brandon had together was River Rose, who was born on June 12, 2014. River also served as the basis for Kelly’s two children’s books, River Rose and the Magical Lullaby and River Rose and the Magical Christmas.
Kelly has talked extensively about her first child, claiming that she is evolving into a diva. The second child of Kelly and Brandon is Remington. He was born on April 12, 2016. Remington, also known as “Remy,” is a “sensitive soul,” in Clarkson’s words.
In May 2002, Clarkson received encouragement from her friends to try out for the first season of the reality television program American Idol: The Search for a Superstar. Despite being given a “golden ticket,” or a pass to the Hollywood rounds, in the first episode of the series, Clarkson didn’t make her debut until the second.
On September 4, 2002, at the Kodak Theatre (now Dolby), Clarkson went on to win the competition with 58% of the vote against Justin Guarini, who came in second. Simon Fuller, the man behind American Idol, and music mogul Clive Davis immediately signed singer Kelly Clarkson to a record deal with RCA Records, 19 Recordings, and S Records after she won the singing competition. Davis was also tasked with executive-producing Clarkson’s debut album.
