KELLY Clarkson has shared an emotional and empowering cover of the Hamilton song It’s Quiet Uptown, singing about forgiveness as she goes through her own divorce.
The song is set towards the end of the musical when Alexander Hamilton and his wife Eliza move uptown following the death of their eldest son and the decision by Hamilton to embark on an affair and then embarrass his wife by – in an effort to absolve his own guilt – revealing all in public papers.
Performing a shortened version of the track for her YouTube channel, the mom-of-two belts out the lyrics before letting out a big gush of air as she comes to the close.
The singer was virtually joined by band members to perform the track during Thursday’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show as part of the segment Kellyoke.
The lyrics include: “Forgiveness. Can you imagine? Forgiveness. Can you imagine? / If you see him in the street, walking by her side, talking by her side, have pity / They are going through the unimaginable.”
Kelly and Brandon Blackstock announced their divorce last month after seven years of marriage.
The Voice coach filed for divorce from husband Brandon, 43, on June 4.
Kelly and Brandon, who is also the singer’s manager, got married in 2013.
They have two children together, daughter River Rose, 5, and son Remington Alexander, 4.
She also is stepmom to Seth, 13, and Savannah, 18, from the music executive’s previous relationship.
In recent weeks she has been sharing various covers of particularly haunting songs including Lisa Loeb’s Stay and the Etta James classic I’d Rather Go Blind.
