Kelly Clarkson Delivers Powerful Performance of Amy Winehouse's 'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow'
Over the years, Kelly Clarkson has proved she's a phenomenal singer but her latest Kellyoke segment left fans speechless with her emotional cover of "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow."
Kelly Clarkson rose to fame after winning the competitive show "American Idol" but she became a fan-favorite celebrity for "The Kelly Clarkson Show." The 38-year-old's recent performance on the popular show left many in awe of her talents.
On November 18, during the musical segment of her show known as Kellyoke, the singer gave an outstanding performance of Amy Winehouse's "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow." She sang the emotional lyrics of the song with her signature high notes.

Clarkson wore a casual outfit consisting of a white top with a colorful design tucked into high-waist trousers. The look was completed with a brown ankle-length jacket and boots while her blonde hair was styled in graceful waves that fell to her shoulders.
Following Winehouse's death, Clarkson was devastated and shared her grief with a heartfelt message where she described the singer as "an idol."
The powerful performance touched the hearts of millions and they flooded the YouTube video with several likes and comments. Many complimented the singer's looks while others applauded her rendition of the song.
However, the song she performed was Amy Winehouse's cover of the original song by Carole King. "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" was co-written by Gerry Goffin and King in 1960 for The Shirelles girl group.
The iconic singer then recorded the song for her album "Tapestry," in 1971 and the background vocals were provided by Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. After Winehouse's tragic death in 2011, the album "Lioness: Hidden Treasures" was released and it contained her cover of King's song.

She sympathized with the situation that led to the 27-year-old's death as she has experienced being "that low emotionally and mentally." Clarkson covered Winehouse's "Valerie" while on tour in 2015.
However, fans were lucky to enjoy another Kellyoke segment as staff members of "The Kelly Clarkson Show" tested positive for coronavirus. Sources confirmed that production team members tested positive during a routine test on November 13.
Which halted the show's production until the results of new tests were available. This crisis also affected popular shows like NBC’s "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago Med," whose productions had to be stopped for "two weeks" due to several "positive COVID-19 tests."
