By this point, Kelly Clarkson has pretty much established that any song she covers, she slays. (If you need proof, look no further than Clarkson's cover of "Blank Space" by Taylor Swift or "Stay" by Rihanna.) Naturally, when Clarkson performed "Heaven" by Bryan Adams, she more than did justice to the extremely romantic song. "I chose this one because this is my husband's, one of his favorite songs," Clarkson told the audience of her Aug. 8 concert in Salt Lake City. "And he's here tonight ..."
"Heaven" certainly didn't disappoint, and it's the latest in a long line of spectacular covers by Clarkson. No matter how random the song choice (I'm looking at you, *NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye"), the American Idol winner never fails to use her incredible vocal talent and personality to make it her own. "Heaven" is a popular song to cover, so Clarkson had her work cut out for her. However, as you'll see in the video below, she slays.
Clarkson isn't the only singer to successfully take on Adams' song, though. Matt Bomer recently covered "Heaven" for Magic Mike XXL, while Jason Aldean and Gavin DeGraw's renditions have been making the rounds for years. You can check out seven amazing "Heaven" covers in the videos below. But first, Kelly:
