U2’s soaring 2000 hit “Beautiful Day” is the kind of song that can fill a stadium packed with tens of thousands of fans. And with the power of Kelly Clarkson’s vocals, it’s pretty epic in an empty television studio too.
Clarkson tackled the song — which peaked at No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Adult Alternative Airplay chart — for her Kellyoke segment on Friday’s (Feb. 26) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show. The stage was lit in pulsing white lights, as Clarkson’s band kept up with U2’s syncopated production and Clarkson delivered her trademark powerhouse pipes.
“Beautiful Day” was the lead single from U2’s 2000 album All That You Can’t Leave Behind. Watch Clarkson’s version below:
