Considering the fact that U2 wrote the song about King, Clarkson chose an especially fitting song. As a result, many fans took note of this choice and pointed it out for those who may not be aware of the significance.
“For those who don’t know why she’s covering this iconic song today on Dr MLK Day, the lyrics in this U2 classic ‘early morning April 4… ‘ and that entire verse she sang refer to the day they ‘took his life,’ April 4, 1968, in Memphis,” one person writes. “Kelly is a class act all the way.”
As usual, Clarkson seems to effortless belt out these powerful lyrics, adding the depth and emotion needed for such a meaningful song.
“Kelly has the voice and the heart to sing and understand this song with the respect and passion it deserves,” another person shares.
