During the interview, she explained that she did not grow up with her siblings, with her sister living with their aunt and her brother staying with her dad.

She continued that they reconnected after she first auditioned on the hit talent show "American Idol." She said,

"We all met up and everything, and then they got really excited because Idol happened. Which is really weird if you saw them - we're exactly the same. It's like we grew up together, it's really weird."

The siblings were unable to see each other as they all grew up poor and were spread out over the country, meeting in 2001 when Jason got married. Her sister is called Alyssa Clarkson.

The entertainer has said that the experience matured her; however, her relationship with her father was very different.

In February last year, "The Voice" judge revealed that her father had passed away, sharing that she had been inspired to write the song "Piece by Piece."

Clarkson said that the song compared her father to her husband, Brandon Blackstock, and became emotional while performing it on the Los Angeles stop of her "Meaning of Life" tour.
