Kelly Clarkson Launches Into Soulful Territory with Her Latest Album—See It Live Next Thursday
Grammy Award-winning global superstar Kelly Clarkson will embark on an arena tour in 2019 in support of her latest LP Meaning of Life. Clarkson will be joined by special guests Kelsea Ballerini and Brynn Cartelli, the winner of the last season of NBC’s The Voice. The Meaning of Life tour is coming to the Sprint Center on February 7th.
Meaning of Life is Clarkson's first documented foray into soul and R&B music. Inspired by the music of the 1990s and prominent singers such as Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, and Whitney Houston, Clarkson wanted the album evoke a music of those artists had they happen to release their early works in the 21st century—with the overall goal of emoting a "soulful" spirit.
As the title suggests, there’s a maturity in the perspective of Meaning of Life: it’s filled with songs about love and living, it’s rooted in the past and living in the moment. The blend of contemporary and classic suits Clarkson, who sounds assured here in a way that differs from her earliest records. Controlled and confident, she certainly has her share of show stopping moments.
Even if they’re not, Meaning of Life is one of her most satisfying albums: it feels like not just a collection of good tunes, but a statement of purpose. Don’t miss out on the chance to see her perform these songs and more of your favorite Clarkson tunes during this tour! Tickets are on sale now starting at $29.
