Kelly Clarkson showed gratitude for her Daytime Emmy Award win by thanking those who helped make "The Kelly Clarkson Show" a reality, including her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock.
This year, the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards may have taken place virtually, but it didn't take away from Kelly Clarkson's excitement. Taking to social media the singer announced that "this calls for a party" after she won the award for outstanding entertainment talk show host.
EXPRESSING HER GRATITUDE
Clarkson's unbridled joy came through in the rest of her message as well, as words like "amazing" stood out in between an array of exclamation marks while she added:
"A MAJOR thank you to my entire crew that really is the reason I won!!! I can’t wait to celebrate when humans can congregate again!!"
A SHOUTOUT TO HER ESTRANGED HUSBAND
While jumping over the moon with excitement, Clarkson also extended her gratitude to her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock, who also serves as her manager.
“Thank you so much to @BBlackstock for believing in me & convincing me to do @KellyClarksonTV show."
The 38-year-old singer married Blackstock back in 2013, and the couple since welcomed a son Remington, and a daughter River Rose, apart from Blackstock's two children, Seth and Savannah, from a previous relationship.
SELF-ISOLATION HIGHLIGHTED ISSUES
Before Clarkson's recent return to Los Angeles, she spent time in self-isolation with Blackstock and her children in Montana. According to a source, the time spent in close quarters only "exacerbated any issues," and the pop singer alluded to as much during an interview in May.
While speaking with PEOPLE at the time, Clarkson said that there is "definitely cabin fever going on" while adding that time in quarantine turned into a "challenging" time to be a "working mom."
SHE STEPPED OUT FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Last weekend Clarkson also made her first public appearance since she filed for divorce, and it was in aid of a worthy cause based in Los Angeles.
The Lead With Love telethon took place on Saturday, and Clarkson did her part to raise almost $697,000 to provide healthy meals to those in need amid the novel coronavirus pandemic for Project Angel Food.
For the telethon, Clarkson performed the classic U2 song "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and several other celebrities such as Sharon Stone, Elton John, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kelly Osbourne, Billy Idol, Annie Lennox, and more also took part in the fundraising event.
STANDING IN SOLIDARITY
The U2 song also served as a way for Kelly Clarkson to honor #BlackLivesMatter amid protests following the death of George Floyd in May.
Clarkson's touching rendition of the song came in a show of solidarity against brutality, and the end of the video showed a sign that clearly stated "no justice, no peace."
