Bruce Springsteen Doesn’t Get Enough Credit For His Voice, Kelly Clarkson Shares

During a recent appearance on the Howard Stern Show, Kelly Clarkson said that she thinks Bruce Springsteen is not appreciated enough for his vocal abilities.

She initially shared her thoughts on the effect of age on voice:

“People think they sound different older. I think if you’re using it properly and you’re constantly working something, like I’m constantly singing, I’m into it, I’m writing, I’m on the talk show, singing, and I’m doing stuff all the time.”

The singer continued:

“I think if you’re constantly using your gift and you’re using it properly, you can develop such a beautiful roundness that you’d rarely have in your youth. It’s just his voice; he [Tony Bennett] sounded incredible.”

When Stern reminded her of Springsteen as another example who still sounds good despite his age, Clarkson said:

“I love Bruce Springsteen. I don’t know if you know this song, but my favorite song is actually one that he’s not like singing huge and big on. I think it might be the one song in his career he sang in like falsetto the entire time and that high sweet voice.”

Then, Kelly explained why she thinks Springsteen is underrated:

“I think it’s called ‘Lift Me Up,’ but it’s so good. He is underrated. I mean, not underrated. People think he’s a huge star. I just mean he’s underrated vocally. I don’t think people give him enough credit for being the just badass vocalist he is.”

Meanwhile, Clarkson’s tenth studio album, ‘Chemistry,’ has just arrived on June 23. The three singles, ‘Mine,’ ‘Me,’ and ‘Favorite Kind of High,’ had already been released in April and May. The singer collaborated with Steve Martin and Sheila E. on her new record.
