ShareTap Staff 4/29/2019
American Idol season one winner, Kelly Clarkson, has come a long way from her big win on the popular talent search television show. Numerous hit songs that climb the charts, sold out concerts, awards, and nominations continually poured in for the American singer and songwriter. She is the type of talent who continues to impress with each song released. Despite having a family of her own, Kelly Clarkson continues to treat her fans worldwide to hit after hit. Despite being associated with slower tunes that bring out her powerful singing voice, she has a slew of upbeat tracks that are received with enthusiasm as well.
She has since collaborated and performed with different artists such as Jason Aldean, Reba McEntire, and Trisha Yearwood to name a few. Recently, Kelly Clarkson released a song entitled "Broken & Beautiful" which was featured on the soundtrack of movie UglyDolls. The upbeat song was produced by American DJ Marshmello and record producer and musician Steve Mac.
The movie UglyDolls is about a character named Moxy who, with her UglyDoll friends, discover a town called Perfection where the more conventional dolls are required to undergo training before going into the real world and finding the love of a child. Coming from a different town called Uglyville where their strangeness is embraced and celebrated, Moxy and her friends realize eventually that perfection is not a gauge of how amazing one can be. Kelly Clarkson's song "Broken & Beautiful" speaks the same message.
"I'm phenomenal and I'm enough. I don't need you to tell me who to be. Don't fix me, don't try to change a thing. Can someone just know me? 'Cause underneath, I'm broken and it's beautiful."
The empowering lyrics is a wonderful reminder for children and grownups alike to be more accepting of who they are instead of constantly adjusting to fit the world's unreasonable standards. The movie and the song are perfect for today's generation. Social media and its perfectly curated content affect one's self-esteem greatly and tricks one into thinking the scripted is natural and attainable.
Kelly Clarkson's song "Broken & Beautiful" and the movie UglyDolls are great reality checks for all of us. We get so caught up in attempting perfection and gaining approval that we lose sight of what really matters.
Being comfortable with who we are and what we have is more than enough. Thankfully, we have artists like Kelly Clarkson who use their fame and talent to remind us of what is truly important. Check out her newest release below - it truly is a precious song and video.
