Artist Countdown: Kelly Clarkson Top 30 Hits 1pm ET @kelly_clarkson

Kelly-ClarksonKelly Brianne Clarkson (born April 24, 1982) is an American pop-rock singer-songwriter. In 2002, she rose to fame after winning the first season of American Idol, and has since been established as “The Original American Idol.” Her debut single, “A Moment Like This”, topped the US Billboard Hot 100 and broke the record for the biggest jump to number one in the chart’s history; it became the best-selling single of the year in the country. She became the runner-up of World Idol the following year.

Clarkson’s debut studio album, Thankful (2003), has been certified 2× platinum and sold over 4.5 million copies internationally. Its lead single, “Miss Independent,” became an international hit, earning Clarkson her first Grammy nomination. She developed a rock-oriented sound with the release of her second album, Breakaway (2004). It has been certified 6× platinum and sold over 15 million copies worldwide, earning Clarkson two Grammy Awards, including one for the hit single “Since U Been Gone.” She later took full creative direction of her third album, My December (2007), which has been certified platinum. Its lead single, “Never Again,” became a top ten hit. Clarkson’s fourth album, All I Ever Wanted (2009), debuted at number one, and became a critical and commercial success. Its worldwide hit single, “My Life Would Suck Without You”, surpassed “A Moment Like This” for the biggest leap to number one on a single week in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart from number 97, a record it still holds today. Her fifth album, Stronger (2011), generated international chart-topping singles, “Mr. Know It All” and “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You),” with the latter being the best selling American Idol single to date with over five million copies worldwide, becoming one of the best-selling singles of all time. The album won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, making Clarkson the first and only artist to win the award twice. In 2012, Clarkson released Greatest Hits – Chapter One; its lead single, “Catch My Breath,” became her twenty-fourth entry on the Hot 100 and eleventh million-selling single. Clarkson’s sixth album and first Christmas-themed release, Wrapped in Red (2013), became the best-selling holiday album of the year, making her the first American female artist to achieve this feat. – Wikipedia

Artist Countdown: Debarge (Family) Top 30 Hits 6pm ET @ElDeBarge @kristinia

Debarge

DeBarge was a sibling music group of American origin whose repertoire included R&B, soul, funk, pop, adult contemporary, and gospel. Active as a professional recording group from 1979 to 1989, the group was one of the few recording acts to bring success to the Motown label during the 1980s.

Eldra Patrick “El” DeBarge[1] (born June 4, 1961) is an American R&B/pop singer-songwriter, best known as the lead singer of the R&B/Soul family group DeBarge throughout the early to mid-1980s. As a solo artist, he is best known for the hits “Who’s Johnny” and “Love Always” and for his collaborations with Tone Loc, Quincy Jones, Fourplay and DJ Quik. DeBarge is a three-time Grammy nominee.

Etterlene “Bunny” DeBarge (born March 15, 1955) is an American soul singer-songwriter, best known as the lone female sibling of the Motown family group DeBarge. She is also best known as the lead vocalist behind the classic R&B ballad, “A Dream” from the group’s In a Special Way album and is also the co-writer of the group’s 1982 breakthrough hit, “I Like It” and the number-one hit, “Time Will Reveal“.

Jonathan Arthur “Chico” DeBarge (born June 23, 1966, Detroit, Michigan) is an American R&B singer and a younger brother of the members of the Motown family act DeBarge. Unlike the rest of his DeBarge siblings, Chico is the only male DeBarge that does not sing in the falsetto range that is well known in his family; he sings tenor.

Kristinia Jamie DeBarge (born March 8, 1990) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress. She first appeared on national television in 2003 as a contestant on the American Idol spin-off, American Juniors. In 2009, DeBarge signed a contract with the Island Records department Sodapop, releasing her debut album, Exposed, in July of the same year. The first single, “Goodbye”, reached the top 20 in the US and Canada. The lead single (“Cry Wolf”) from her untitled sophomore album was released on September 27, 2012. (Source: Wikipedia)

Artist Countdown: Paula Abdul Top 24 Hits 4pm ET @radiomax @PaulaAbdul

paula-abdulPaula Julie Abdul born June 19, 1962 is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, choreographer, actress and television personality. She began her career as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers before rising to prominence in the 1980s as a highly sought-after choreographer at the height of the music video era. Abdul later scored a string of pop music hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Her six number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 tie her with Diana Ross for sixth among the female solo performers who have topped the chart. She won a Grammy for “Best Music Video – Short Form” for “Opposites Attract” and twice won the “Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography“.

After her initial period of success, Abdul suffered a series of setbacks in her professional and personal life. She saw renewed fame and success as an original judge on American Idol in the 2000s, which she left after the eighth season. She went on to star on CBS’ short-lived television series Live to Dance, which lasted one season in 2011, and was subsequently a judge on the first season of the American version of The X Factor along with her former American Idol co-judge Simon Cowell, the creator and producer of the show. She was also a guest judge on the All-Star edition of Dancing with the Stars in 2012.

On January 30, 2013, Paula Abdul was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at The Carnival: Choreographer’s Ball 14th anniversary show. (Source: Wikipedia)
