Kelly Clarkson is spreading the Christmas cheer early this year! The singer released her cover of “All I Want For Christmas is You,” but before you get too excited, it’s not the version you’re probably thinking of.
No, this isn’t a cover of our beloved Mariah Carey track of the same name but actually a cover of Vince Vance & the Valiants’ song. But this cover may not be a surprise to fans since Kelly says it’s a song she has been singing since forever. “I have been singing Vince Vance & the Valiants’ song ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ since I was a little kid,” she explains. “I always loved that it’s a ballad but the woman always sounded so rock n’ roll with her raspy tone on the big notes. It has an old school vibe and is a little pop, country, and rock n’ roll.”
While we would love to hear Kelly do a cover of Mariah’s iconic Christmas song, any new music from Kelly is good news to us! Check out Kelly’s cover of “All I Want For Christmas” below!
