For years, Kelly Clarkson has been covering and slaying other artists’ songs on tour as a part of her special fan request slot on her set list. The fan request song gives Kelly’s audiences the opportunities to submit their wish lists of covers for the world class vocalist, but the crowds never know what song made the cut until the moment arrives during the show.
This past weekend, Kelly covered Sheryl Crow, putting her own touches on an already brilliant song, “If It Makes You Happy.” The audience sang along and, as with all of Kelly’s covers, the Internet later joined in, sharing its love for the performance. Included in those giving Kelly two thumbs up for her interpretation of the song was Sheryl Crow herself.

Kelly excitedly responded to the woman she described as “white” and “soulful” during her introduction.
