Q&A with Kelly Clarkson
Q: Your version of Up to the Mountain is a great track. Why did you decide to cover that piece?
A: I love that song. Do you know Patty Griffin? I'm crap compared to her version. She is this phenomenal singer/songwriter that's been around forever. Oh my gosh, it's on her album Children Running Through, which is a great album. You should buy it. Go on iTunes and look it up. ... She wrote it about Martin Luther King. ... I just saw her in New York for like the fifth time. She's literally my favorite singer/songwriter in the world. I cover her all the time. I love her. She's got this amazing soul to her voice. It's one of those lived-in voices. You're going to love it. I'm excited. She is so good!
