Okay, so the song definitely isn’t even anywhere near the same vicinity as Kelly Clarkson’s past hits (Miss Independent, anyone?), but “Catch my Breath” is damn likeable. The American Idol winner pretty much nails it with this song, because she perfectly captures where she is right now in her career. The single, which is supporting her upcoming Greatest Hits — Chapter 1 album, explains how Clarkson sometimes needs to take a chill pill and realize how far she’s come. I think that Clarkson totally deserves to give herself a pat on the back (or several) for all of the awesome work she’s done in the past. Let’s take a look at the singer’s career so far, shall we?
Five awesome moments in Kelly Clarkson’s career:
Who can forget this instant blockbuster hit, “From Justin to Kelly?” The film captures the awesome rapport between Clarkson and fellow American Idol contestant/dreamboat, Justin Guarini.
Remember the song, “Because of You?” If you don’t, I question your dedication to heartbreaking songs 101.
First winner of American Idol!
I wonder if Kelly knew that she’d be the first winner of the show that would become a cultural phenomenon.
Pumping out catchy hits like no other
“Behind These Hazel Eyes” and “Since U Been Gone” are my personal favourites. Kelly always knows how to hit us where it already hurts.
Winning awards like it’s nobody’s business
Two Grammy’s, 12 Billboard Music Awards, three MTV Video Awards, and four American Music Awards. Next stop, world domination.
