ShareTap Staff 2/21/2019
Stefani Germanotta - or better known by her stage name Lady Gaga - has become a household name over the years. She started her career as an eccentric pop singer, spurring out hits like "Bad Romance", "Born This Way", and "Poker Face". But Lady Gaga has proven to be more than just your average pop star. She's managed to break out of the mold by showing her exceptional acting skills. From a television star to a bonafide leading lady on the big screen, Lady Gaga is taking Hollywood by storm.
It's no wonder so many people adore Lady Gaga. Her fans come from every single corner of the world. One of them is a very special and equally talented woman you might have heard of. It's none other than Kelly Clarkson. Who would've known that the American Idol alumni and The Voice judge was a big Lady Gaga fan? Well, Kelly decided to show off her love for Miss Gaga by putting her heart and soul to this cover of "Shallow".
For fans of A Star is Born, the song "Shallow" has probably stuck on your mind since you've seen the movie. It's full of passion and perfectly highlights the power of Lady Gaga's voice. Many would argue that its the best song off the soundtrack. Critics seem to agree since the track is currently up for an Academy Award.
To cover "Shallow" is no easy feat. For one, it's a duet that features both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's vocals. So singing this powerful tune alone is definitely a challenge for even the most seasoned performers. However, Kelly makes it look so easy. Her solo rendition of the song is enough to give anyone the goosebumps.
Kelly performed "Shallow" during Meaning of Life concert tour in Wisconsin. She drew a surprised yet excited response from the crowd as soon as she announced that she was going to perform the song. Before singing, Kelly did slip in a short anecdote about her encounter with Lady Gaga herself. The singer recalled:
"I remember her first single, we actually did a show together combined for some event and she is one of the only artists that has ever-she wrote me a hand-written letter saying, 'Thank you so much, it was an honor to open for you,'" Kelly said before adding: "She was the nicest human being ever. . . .It's cool, just to know someone that talented is also really nice."
As you might expect, Kelly delivered the cover with class. Everyone seems to agree - with both the audience and the online community singing her praises.
Kelly Clarkson will entertain you with her exceptional vocal talent.
