Kelly Clarkson and Carole King took the stage in Central Park as the sang a duet of "Where You Lead," a track originally from King's old album.


Kelly Clarkson and iconic singer and songwriter, Carole King, performed "Where You Lead" in an amazing show over the weekend at the Global Citizen Festival in New York.

The rendition of the song, that initially appeared in King's 1971 album, Tapestry, gave the audience a nostalgic feel from the hit series "Gilmore Girls."


"The Voice" coach looked ravishing in a studded black dress, paired with a black belt and black boots. She wore her hair in loose waves that showed off her hoop earrings.

The event devoted to ending extreme poverty had stars rubbing elbows with each other, including Queen guitarist, Brian May, who championed the Live Aid benefit concert in 1985.


Clarkson has been singing renditions of former songs, mostly during her "Kellyoke" segment," including tracks by Sia, Madonna, Britney Spears, and other pop artists.

Last March, Clarkson paid tribute to the late Aretha Franklin during the "Aretha!" -- a Grammy Celebration For The Queen of Soul, and gave a jaw-dropping performance to "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You.)


The breathtaking song left the audience in awe and gave life to the auditorium, together with other top artists who honored the late singer as well. John Legend was among those who covered the late singers cover, "Bridge Over Troubled Waters." He said:

"Tonight, I am honored to salute the queen by singing a song on which she demonstrated her genius as an interpretative singer, musician, and arranger."

The night ended with Franklin's female anthem, "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman," by the collaborative effort of Fantasia, Alessia Cara, Andra Day, and Brandi Carlile.

Franklin passed away at the age of 76 after suffering from pancreatic cancer. She left a legacy in the music industry and inspired many artists who still perform today.
