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 classic 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. “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! But we would absolutely love for Kelly to cover Mariah! Check out Kelly’s cover of “All I Want For Christmas” below!
