Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to newcomer Tori Kelly with an incredible cover of “Nobody Love” on the opening night of her “Piece By Piece” tour.
The original American Idol sang Tori’s breakthrough hit during the fan requested section of the show in Pennsylvania and blew the crowd away as she showcased the full range of her famous voice.
Clarkson continues to be one of the realest artists out there and this is just another example of that; recognising a new artist and praising the hell out of them during the opening night of your own headlining tour isn’t something many people would do.
“I’m a huge fan of this artist – not many people can sing well live and this girl is killing it,” she said before her acoustic rendition of the Max Martin-produced song.
Tori heard about the cover and reached out to the “Heartbeat Song” singer on Twitter with some reciprocated love.
this is so awesome 2 me. thanks @kelly_clarkson for the shoutout & for being such a real artist: http://t.co/JNlWOpgdH4 (she killed my song)— Tori Kelly (@ToriKelly) July 13, 2015
