Kelly Clarkson Covers Sia’s ‘Breathe Me’
The 30-year-old star explained that she and her band have been accepting cover requests over Twitter and Facebook, and the concept “breaks up the monotony” of their shows. Plus, Clarkson added, “My fans have really good taste in music.”
“This is like one of my favorite songs probably ever,” the Texas native said about Sia’s 2004 hit. “It’s just one of those songs you can put on repeat over and over, and it’s such a spiritual sounding song and I love it.”
Clarkson stayed true to the original, but added her own runs and ad libs toward the end of the tune. ‘Breathe Me’ arguably put Sia on the musical map — way before her collaborations with Flo Rida and David Guetta — and has been licensed on a variety of popular television shows since its release.
The ‘Duets’ star has covered many songs on the road, including Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’, Madonna’s ‘Crazy for You’. She’s even shown her depth and flow on a rendition of Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself.’ Clarkson will continue her Australian run over the next couple of weeks before heading to the U.K. through Oct. 20.
