Kelly Clarkson will be going through a divorce soon, but that won't stop her from singing her heart out to show solidarity with African Americans fighting for justice for black lives.

On Monday, the singer and her bandmates indulged fans in an incredible rendition of U2's hit song, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." The video is found below.

CLARKSON SINGS POPULAR U2 SONG FOR PROTESTORS

The clip shows a bare-faced Clarkson singing for the "Kellyoke" segment of her talk show, but this time things are different. She showed images from the protests going on nationwide.

The marches resulted from the death of 46-year-old George Floyd at the hands of a police officer three weeks ago. Since then, persons have made efforts to raise awareness of the injustices facing black lives.

In the video, Clarkson wore a reddish-orange dress, styled her hair into a bangs-out ponytail look, and donned a pair of hoops. Her backup singer wore a large white sweater, and her short bob was let loose.

Everyone appeared to be at their home for the performance due to the coronavirus pandemic. The end of the video featured a sign reading, "No justice, no peace."

HER SHOW'S STAFF MEMBERS HAVE STORIES TO TELL

According to ET, staff members of "The Kelly Clarkson Show" are also participating in the movement. Those who are black are sharing their personal stories of racism.

Clarkson noted, "It is an honest and sometimes difficult dialogue, but we have always strived to be a show about connection, and we want to walk the walk every day."

The 38-year-old singer uses the hashtag, #StartTheConversation, to encourage others to share their stories. Unfortunately, some are staining the good intentions of the protestors.

CLARKSON CALLS OUT THOSE OVERSHADOWING THE MESSAGE

Earlier this month, Clarkson addressed the looters, rioters, and even some police who were dampening the efforts of those trying to lend their voice to the movement in the right way.

In a tweet, Clarkson also called on others who appear to be silent amidst the officers showing excessive force towards those peacefully practicing their first amendment right.
