Kelly Clarkson Says ‘She Was Mine’ From ‘Waitress’ on Kellyoke – Billboard

Kelly Clarkson had a trip to Broadway on Friday (January 7). But with the majority of theaters closed due to the rapidly spreading Omicron variant of COVID-19, she had to make a moving cover of Waitress ballad “She Was Mine.” Kellyoke’s latest cover on the singer’s daily syndicated talk show includes the appearance of Ciara Renee, the actress who ended up starring as Jenna – replacing Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles.

Waitress ran for more than 1,500 Broadway shows before closing in January 2020 and then relaunching for limited participation in September 2021 as the first show to return after Broadway’s COVID-19 shutdown- 19 on a large scale; it wraps two weeks ago than expected on December 22, 2021 due to a spike in COVID cases.

However, just two weeks ago, officially Waitress Twitter account made a special request:”RT if you think @KellyClarksonTV & @kellyclarkson should be a waitress #Kellyoke of ‘She Was Mine’ before the end of our Broadway run. On Friday, the show retweeted the question along with a video of Clarkson’s performance and a message to the music and lyricist host, singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles, “Anything what for @SaraBareilles @WaitressMusical,” reads the note, along with a blue heart emoji and a cake shape.

Kelly made their dreams come true with a piano and covered vocals, with a pair of dancers swooning around the lunch counter while bathed in blue light as Clarkson belted, “And you’re not what I ask / If I tell the truth then I know, I will give it all back / For a chance to start over / And rewrite an ending or two / For the girl I know / Who would risk just enough / Who gets hurt but / Who learns to toughen up when she’s bruised.”

Clarkson also invited Renee – who had previously participated Waitress before she comes back – to chat over Zoom about her Jenna song and playtime. “I’m so honored that you guys want me to sing… First of all, I love that song, it’s so beautiful, so empowering to sing, it feels like a painful moment every time you sing it,” Kelly told Renee, who said it was “wild and weird and beautiful” to reprise the lead role on the show.

Renee added that like everyone in the Broadway community, she really missed the show during the COVID shutdown for over a year, which is why returning to the show she loves so much Like is a “dream come true”.
