Music megastar Kelly Clarkson has never been afraid to show her emotional side. In fact, the American Idol winner has become renowned both for her deeply personal song lyrics and for bearing her soul on stage. And when the singer paid tribute to fellow country legend Reba McEntire, she certainly lived up to her reputation of wearing her heart on her sleeve. You see, during a rendition of McEntire’s “Fancy,” Clarkson could barely hold back the tears.
Clarkson’s touching performance occurred at the Kennedy Center Honors – an event that pays tribute to people who have made outstanding contributions to the entertainment industry. The ceremony was first held in 1978, and there have been hundreds of famous faces recognized since. And at the 2018 Kennedy Center Honors, it was Reba McEntire’s turn.
