The winner of 'American Idol' inaugural season is freeing a young girl who is held captive in the music video of her pop dance track from 'Greatest Hits - Chapter 1'.
After teasing fans with the short sneak peak into her new music video a few days ago, pop rock singer Kelly Clarkson now premieres it in full. Combining cinematic elements of a storyline complete with a car chase with solo footage of her rocking the song out in a blue and black ensemble, the 31-year-old singer gives fans almost five minutes of viewing pleasure along with her catchy pop dance track.
The visuals begin with the scenes from the preview of a young girl as she is being studied by a team of scientists which includes Clarkson. As the child is being held captive for further investigation, Clarkson steps in to reveal to her that she is one of "them" then takes the little girl outside her confinement for a ride towards freedom, as they get into a car chase with a few men-in-black.
The clip ends with Clarkson successfully bringing the young girl back to her home, her community, surrounded by folks similar to her and our heroine. It's a fitting rendition of the song's lyrics, "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."
"People Like Us" is the third and final track to be released from Clarkson's "Greatest Hits - Chapter 1" album. The greatest hits compilation contains such chart-toppers as her debut single "A Moment Like This", "Since You've Been Gone" from her sophomore album "Breakaway" and her recent hit "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)".
