About Kelly Clarkson
Kelly Clarkson, who recently released her critically acclaimed eighth studio album, “Meaning of Life,” is among the most popular artists of this era with total worldwide sales of more than 25 million albums and 36 million singles. The Texas-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter first came to fame in 2002 as the winner of the inaugural season of “American Idol.” Clarkson’s debut single, “A Moment Like This,” followed and quickly went to #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, ultimately ranking as the year’s best-selling single in the U.S. Further, Clarkson is, without doubt, one of pop’s top singles artists, with 17 singles boasting multi-platinum, platinum and gold certifications around the world, including such global favorites as “Miss Independent” and “Because of You.” Clarkson has released eight studio albums (Thankful Breakaway, My December, All I Ever Wanted, Stronger, Wrapped In Red, Piece By Piece, Meaning of Life), one greatest hits album, and two children’s books (New York Times Top 10 best seller River Rose and the Magical Lullaby and the recent follow up River Rose and the Magical Christmas). She is the recipient of an array of awards including three GRAMMY Awards, four American Music Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, two American Country Awards, and one Country Music Association Award. She is also the first artist to top each of Billboard’s pop, adult contemporary, country and dance charts. Last year, Clarkson hosted the “2018 Billboard Music Awards” in addition to appearing and winning as a coach on the 14th and 15th seasons of The Voice before reclaiming her red chair for the series’ current 16th season. She is also slated to make her daytime debut with her very own talk show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” airing in the fall of 2019 on NBC.

Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation (ICF)

The Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation takes at-risk youth off the streets and into greatness. The Foundation works to inspire youth by helping them create a vision for their life, where they can develop their strengths through project-driven learning, mentoring, apprenticeships, academics, and athletics. The program asks children to “earn their way” and to “discover their passions” by helping them create and execute quarterly business plans. Through this process, the leadership and character development program arms youth with a “psychology for life,” using emotional intelligence and the mindfulness curriculum, that prepares them mentally, emotionally, and physically to live happy, driven and inspired lives.
