The award-winning, top-selling, international superstar of an Idol Queen, Kelly Clarkson was glorious and spunky as she performed her latest single, “People Like Us” (in the form of a glowing and groovy rave complete with glowsticks and neon colour splashes) on American Idol. From her first Greatest Hits album, “People Like Us” is an energizing and encouraging anthem for unity and equality. Kelly has gone on record to say that this was her most favourite song that she has ever recorded, and it’s easy to see why. She is singing for all of us – for those who feel rejected, alone, scared, or numb, for the “misfits living in a world on fire”. We are all fighters, and when life gets tough and unfair, we must hold on and not give up, because the time for change is just around the corner! As the Original Idol, she has made it a mission throughout her musical career to inspire others to stay strong and fulfill their dreams, and I’d say that she’s doing a pretty dang good job of it. Sing on, Kelly!
People like us we’ve gotta stick together
Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever
Here’s to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
It’s hard to get high when you’re living on the bottom
