A Capella Group Turns Kelly Clarkson’s Hits Into Four-Minute Medleyby Matthew Scott Donnelly | PopCrush
Kelly Clarkson‘s first collection of greatest hits clocks in at one hour, three minutes and 42 seconds, so if you don’t have the time for a front-to-back listen, no worries—a New York City a cappella group has got you covered.
RANGE, an up-and-coming ensemble that’s recently performed hits like “Love Me Like You Do” and “Lips are Movin” decided to set their sights on Miss Independent and distill her entire career to a digestible four minutes and 15 seconds. Yup, that’s 13 years and seven studio albums worth of hits in a single clip, and the truth is, it’s pretty amazing.
In the clip above, which starts out with Kelly’s American Idol coronation song, “A Moment Like This,” RANGE tackles everything from “Breakaway” to “Heartbeat Song“…and in exact chronological progression. Sounds like these guys have definitely been taking notes over the years.
The medley is just the latest bit of proof that Kelly and a cappella were meant to be together. This summer, she’ll be joined on her Piece by Piece tour by Pentatonix, a five-piece a cappella group from Texas who got their start on The Sing-Off. Pentatonix most recently posted a video chronicling Michael Jackson’s hits to their YouTube channel.
Take a listen to the Miss Independent medley, tell us what you think and see if Kelly will stop at a city near you along her next tour!
