Kelly Clarkson got a big surprise on Saturday (March 31) during the last stop on her Meaning of Life tour.
While the American Idol O.G. winner and The Voice coach performed the emotional “Piece by Piece” in Greenville, South Carolina, her husband Brandon Blackstock walked on stage holding a guitar. As her guitarist stepped back and Brandon stepped in to take his place, Kelly turned about and got a major shock.
Kelly immediately laughs and bursts into tears. Of course, the song is about her husband and how he filled the empty hole created after her biological dad abandoned her as a child.
But piece by piece, he collected me up//Off the ground, where you abandoned things//Piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me//Six years old and you know//He never walks away…
Every night, Kelly live streamed a segment of her concert dubbed “A Minute and a Glass of Wine” which began with behind-the-scenes streams of her home and work life. During the segment, Kelly chatted with her audience before performing a cover handpicked for the evening.
The Cyndi Lauper classic “Time After Time” was the singer’s very last cover, performed as a duet with Kelsea Ballerini.
At her penultimate tour stop, the night before in Nashville, Reba McEntire joined her on stage to sing a medley of favs.
