Kelly Clarkson makes first public appearance since filing for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock – The Sun
KELLY Clarkson has made her first public appearance since filing for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock.
The singer, 38, took part in a charity telethon for Project Angel Food, an L.A.-based organization that cooks meals and delivers them to those in need.
The telethon aired on Saturday via KTLA 5 News.
The mom-of-two looked fresh faced for the television appearance, wearing a blue top with a pattern of lemons, gold hoops and her hair down and loose.
The Lead with Love: Project Angel Food Emergency Telethon was hosted by Will & Grace star Eric McCormack, Tony Award nominee Sheryl Lee Ralph and KTLA 5 anchor Jessica Holmes.
Kelly appeared upbeat as she said hello to the camera.
She said: “Hey what’s up, Project Angel Food. I just wanted you to know how awesome you all are for the way that you’ve led with love during this whole pandemic.
“You’ve kept the doors open for people who are most vulnerable to the virus, those who are older and those who are struggling with life-threatening illness. Because of you they’ve never had to miss a meal. You’ve worked your tails off every single day to make that happen. It’s a really beautiful thing. So I want to dedicate this song to y’all. Keep leading in love, alright?”
The Texas native went on to cover U2’s “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”
On Friday Kelly was blown-away when after she scored a Daytime Emmy for her talk show.
The Since You’ve Been Gone singer thanked her estranged husband, Brandon Blackstock, for “believing” in her on Twitter.
The 38-year-old singer won the award for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host just three weeks after she filed for divorce.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were held virtually this year and it didn’t take long for Kelly to respond to the news online.
She enthusiastically tweeted: “OH MY GOSH!!!!!! What is happening?!!!! This is amazing!!! Thank y’all so much!!!”
“And a MAJOR thank you to my entire crew that really is the reason I won!!!”
The Grammy winner continued: “I can’t wait to celebrate with our whole crew when humans can congregate again!! This calls for a PARTY!!!!”
The Voice coach then paid special tribute to her husband of seven years – who she formally split from on June 4.
“Thank you so much to @BBlackstock for believing in me & convincing me to do @KellyClarksonTV show,” she gushed.
Kelly filed for divorce from her music manager husband after seven years of marriage.
Sources close to the couple told Entertainment Tonight: "Kelly and Brandon had been having problems for several months and had been making an effort to work things out.
Insiders added: "They both hoped quarantining away from LA in Montana would help them work things out in their marriage, but instead the change in environment was actually detrimental.
"The constant time together seemed to make an already challenging situation worse.
"This recent downtime gave her the time she needed to think about her life and her marriage."
Kelly has appeared emotional while filming her Emmy-winning series several times in recent weeks.
She belted out an heartbreaking rendition of the Etta James breakup classic, I’d Rather Go Blind, last week.
The American Idol winner also appeared upset as she sang a a stunning cover of Lisa Loeb's '(Stay) I Missed You.'
Kelly even broke down in tears as a Black Lives Matter protestor shared an emotional story about her dad three weeks after the singer’s painful divorce.
The Texas native seemed to have recently taken the family's Los Angeles eight-bedroom farmhouse off the market.
It went up for sale in May, but the listing page now says the property has been "withdrawn/canceled."
The Voice coach is reportedly getting "support" from her costars Gwen Stefani and boyfriend Blake Shelton – who is managed by Brandon.
An insider told ET: ”They both know how painful divorce can be and just want the best for their friends.”
Gwen finalized her divorced from Gavin Rossdale in 2016, while Blake finalized his from Miranda Lambert in 2015.
Kelly and Brandon got married in 2013 and share two children — daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4.
According to documents obtained by The Sun, the couple cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.
