Biography


Ready to invade Australia with her remarkable voice by early November 2005, Kelly Clarkson has revealed her intention to continue her "Hazel Eyes Tour" around U.S. after she previously was forced to put some delays due to a lingering case of bronchitis. Starting on December 7 in Hidalgo, Texas, the tour has added a number of new stops in Texas and California, not to mention that of New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom. Unquestionably busy preparing the rescheduled shows, she amazingly managed to grab three American Music Awards nominations for Favorite Female Artist in the Pop/Rock and Adult Contemporary plus the Favorite Album in the Pop/Rock through “Breakaway." All of these merely exhibit the star quality she possesses within, making her brilliantly shines through as a true American idol.

American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson was born Kelly Brianne Clarkson on April 24, 1982, in Fort Worth, Texas, and later moved to Burleson, Texas. This Greek descent's family consists of mother named Jeanne; step father named Jimmy Taylor; one brother Jason (b. 1973); and one sister Alyssa (b. 1976).
