Piece by Piece spawned three singles. However Clarkson failed to achieve a similar success with the second single, " Invincible ".

In February , it was announced that Clarkson had signed a book deal with HarperCollins.

We've got a plethora of stories, and I've already written seven songs, full out, so we'll just have to see which ones might pan out to be a book.

But yes, there will definitely be more. Her version was released on November 3, , as a promotional single for the album. On June 24, , Clarkson announced she had signed a long-term worldwide deal with Atlantic Records , with the intentions of releasing a soul-influenced eighth studio album in Clarkson opened the 45th American Music Awards with P! She now holds the record for the most nominations in that category with four.

Developed by Sony Pictures Animation , the film was released on November 17, This was the first film in which Clarkson performed a voice role. Clarkson, who has a malleable voice and a boatload of vocal confidence, might be a soul siren in the making". However, in a separate review of Stronger Caramanica stated that Clarkson's voice is "too huge, too violent" for warmer and sweeter vocal stylings, stating "she's on a par with Taylor Swift when it comes to vengeance, and she'll do it louder and with more brutality in comparison to her contemporary.

Luke , who produced some of Clarkson's hits, stated that "She has powerful lungs. She's like the Lance Armstrong of vocal cords. Cowell immediately answered that Clarkson did "by a mile", noting that she was "up there" with other great singers such as Celine Dion. I have a really unhealthy fear about it.

So no, I've never done that". At age eight, Clarkson was first inspired to venture into music during a visit to an African-American church in Fort Worth. She cited soul singer Aretha Franklin as her major influence. I grew up with three totally different parents that were into different music. My stepfather is into Willie Nelson and Elvis and all that kind of stuff.

And my real father is into Mariah and Whitney and Aretha all those soulful singers. My mom is into more, like, adult contemporary— Celine Dion , Barbra [Streisand] , Bette [Midler], all those types of things. And then my brother is a big influence on me.

He's like 10 years older than me, so you always wanna be around your cool brother and hang out, so I grew up loving Guns N' Roses. I was all about Metallica. I was all about all those bands, and I still am. I love Aerosmith and No Doubt.

I have so many influences on me that are so different. I love Reba McEntire. I could listen to her all the time. Clarkson has scored number ones on the Billboard charts and sold over 25 million albums and 36 million singles worldwide.

It had everything to do with the fact that she made a great record and she's got an incredible voice. She's not a girl who got lucky in a talent competition; we got lucky to find her. Her unmistakable pipes are a powerful presence in top 40 and country, with forays into anthemic rock and dance.

According to Billboard , Clarkson was a "phenomenon" who "helped legitimize" the impact of talent shows. Her first two albums, Thankful and Breakway , sold about 10 million copies combined, and her pop tunes became empowerment anthems across the globe.

She is also the only one whose quest to follow her artistic instincts—the better to rock out and break free from the Idol cookie-cutter pop mold—prompted her to fire her management team and engage in a prolonged public battle with her record company, RCA. Jon Lisi from PopMatters cited Clarkson as one of the forces of female domination in pop music of the s.

He explained that "Clarkson's anti-sexual image appealed to those who were uncomfortable with Britney Spears ' overt exhibitionism. You hear about her through how talented her music is, not what's going on in her personal life. In , Clarkson began dating talent manager Brandon Blackstock, the son of Clarkson's manager Narvel Blackstock who is the ex-husband and former manager of country music singer and actress Reba McEntire.

She has served as ambassador for the March of Dimes since she was on American Idol , raising money regularly and assisting in volunteer service, having walked for " March for Babies ", for the cause of improvement of the health of mothers and babies.

Clarkson has a ranch in Texas for unwanted animals, which includes amputee goats, blind dogs, and horses that survived colic; there are more than 80 animals at the sanctuary. She helps provide veterinary care for them and finds them an adoptive family. Anything for education I am really into and especially for kids. A lot of people don't have computers, and they can't afford them. Without education, you get far behind.

As long as they have a chance, you know, I think that's important. I want every kid to have a chance. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Kelly Clarkson Clarkson in Reba McEntire Trisha Yearwood.

Ian Jones 'states' in the paper he made this conclusion after tending to disbelieving local knowledge offered to him some thirty years before ' that the police camp' was up the creek on the eastern bank of Stringybark.

In the Kelly seminar, Ian Jones spoke ". Why would he say this? Numerous huts were build in the vicinity, before and after Dave Wilson should be Dave White But this statement is completely erroneous and misleading - as from all historical records there is no mention of the huts being separated by any distance or North of the site. Yet in his seminar talk he said this -. It may be too early to say that we have located the actual site of the Stringybark Creek gun battle.

When fireplaces of huts are found right opposite the considered police camp he publicly pronounces the findings as 'codswollup'. In his books he publicly vilifies my findings, yet goes on to describe how he identifies the true location of the police camp while all along he had been shown where it was by an earlier generation of land owners. What we need to question is- on what basis is the EAST bank scenario supported? I have never claimed to have found the site of the police camp. All I have done by finding the fireplaces is to confirm or add some proof to where the police camp was located.

With co-operation from the Department of Sustainability and Environment DSE and numerous other historians agree the fireplaces be given some archeological investigation. Daniel Catrice said that while the fireplaces in themselves were not a significant structure, he acknowledged they were very important to the Kelly story and have to be preserved.

They have now been covered with mesh and the whole Stringybark area has been nominated for heritage listing, - which had never been done. However, with the launch of the Ned Kelly Touring Route well underway, many more thousands are expected to come to this place.

They have embarked on spending public monies on mis guided historical facts. The exclusion from the process of all the facts will require the authorities to re think tourism strategies. Well, that's fair enough as we would not want the public to get in the way of a dig They have refused my request for this website URL to be included on the notice board, but have included Ian Jones' book promotions.

Lets hope the public will see through this blatant favoritism - ill founded on deception and not underpinned by historical truth. It is interesting to note that Ian Jones in his re-release of his Ned Kelly a Short life book , still does not concede the importance of the two fireplaces in the Stringybark story. No contemporary source refers to them. Firstly, - for him to claim the old rock fireplaces of two small huts near the police camp having " No contemporary source referring to them" is ridiculous.

Wilson Hall does not mention a second hut at all, he simply states the police camped " near the ruins of two small huts", There is also mention in the Argus of 28 October of where the police pitched their tent - "near the ruins of two huts" The fireplaces of these two small huts are located near the accepted police camp area , and their existence relates to where the police had camped at Stringybark Creek in Oct - just as The- Argus and G. Ian Jones's new book Notes paragraphs do nothing to bring clarity, - rather to confuse the reader into believing that his printed version of events is complete and correct - when clearly they are not.

If you would like a detailed map for visiting the above places, please contact me via email with your full name and postal address. The abbreviated stories following are a quick overview. This article explores how one of the huts was constructed as well as items dug up by historian Gary Dean from an adjoining rubbish dump. The dumped items suggest domestic occupation of one of the huts at late 's and a penny supports this.

In this story, read references to huts at this location in various written articles of the time and attempts to find the evidence on the ground. Also I provide a birds eye view of the police camp in relationship to the huts. The Burman photos were taken as a record of the murder scene. Not knowing exactly from where they were taken; are we looking north, south east or west?

Going by the orientation of natural lighting on objects throughout the photo, I observe that the main light comes from the right, indicating a Northerly direction. In our Southern Hemisphere the Sun arcs through the Northern sky.

Photographs in required long exposure times and we can guess the photographer chose near midday to take the shots. In summary from analysis of natural lighting we have been able to conclude that the camera was pointing South West. This means the background details in the photo are of the western bank of the creek. In this article we provide evidence from shadow details to confirm this and show you both Burman photos that lead to the fireplaces discovery.

A camera was set up to capture the same area and a picture was taken of the scene years after the Burman photo. For those interested, there is now a well defined walking track that goes to the East bank site where there are two stone seats or a gateway constructed.

This was thought to be the entrance to the site defined by Ian Jones and other locals circa 's. However we can now be certain the true police camp site was on the Western Bank. One option for the site could be at the Two huts directly opposite the two stone seats on the other side of the creek. The second site option is somewhere south of the Kelly tree up and on the road Below image right is the two huts site which most resembles the first Burman photo.

Photo reproduced with the permission of the Keeper of Public Records. Public Record Office Victoria, Australia'. Photo of Wombat Ranges where troopers were shot. Above, Burman photo - Police Camp Oct. Also, the creek and swampy ground here is good habitat for snakes and leeches.

Do not cross the creek or swamp except on paths. Information gleaned from this photo and the one above led to the discovery of the two bush hut fireplaces during Sept. Like others before me, I wanted to find the exact location of the police camp - after reading that it had eluded even the most serious of efforts to locate.

It had become a 60 year old mystery and I wondered if there was anything that had been overlooked. It is entirely possible the long thin saplings may have been axed and dropped by prospectors for building purposes as the area looks as though it may have been cleared indicating human activity.

To supplement this very scant information which I had gleaned from photographs and which I had shown to Gary Dean, we decided together to take a closer look at the actual area of bush where I thought this activity may have taken place. On a return trip to the site a week later I found the second fireplace only 12 metres away.

The Kelly tree is perhaps one famous trees in Australia, it attracts a lot of visitors and is accompanied by a fitting memorial to the three policemen who were killed here.

Side by side, the iconic symbols of tragedy. Centre, the iconic armour motif of the Kelly gang. Right, the Memorial stone at Stringybark Ck reserve, dedicated to the three policemen, two of whom left families behind, a point that often gets ignored.

Constable Michael Scanlon No: Constable Thomas Lonigan No: As early as , Kelly historians had problems visualizing the present day Kelly tree in its surroundings on the western bank of Stringybark Creek as the site of the shoot-out.

The picture of the Kelly tree above is looking south east with the Creek on the left. The iconic armour motif is being swallowed up by the marked tree until one day the motif will disappear altogether.

With research continuing, we hope to confirm the true location of the police camp following the finding of the two old fireplaces of two huts, one now wonders whether alternative plans for future tourism need to be made considering the key markers maybe some 3- metres from the true site?

This sketch left drawn by Constable McIntyre, the only surviving witness, other than the four members of the gang of the shoot-out, shows where Constable Lonigan was killed in relationship to the fire at the crossed logs, and the point from where the gang advanced into the camp. Constable McIntyre had made a written statement accompanied by this sketch and there is a note made, presumably when the sketch and the Burman photos of the re-enactments were presented at Ned Kelly's preliminary trial almost two years later.

The magistrate wrote on a piece of paper attached to the photo, saying;. This statement suggests that there was some confusion in assessing the evidence.

Secondly, the magistrate compared the sketch by Cnst. Shortly before his execution, Ned Kelly wrote a letter to the Governor of Victoria hoping to point out the injustices of his case. Photo and sketch, reproduced with the permission of the Keeper of Public Records.

In this story we compare the sketch and the photos to reveal where the mix up may have occurred. We create a grid on the Burman photo to accurately construct a birds eye view of the scene based on both photos. It may be that Blue Range played a crucial role as to why the police went to Stringybark creek due to a letter received at police headquarters.

A plausible explanation hinges on the letter and map dated 18 th Oct. The letter dated just 8 days before the police shoot-out with the Kellys, advised that a cave situated at Blue Range could be occupied by the Kellys. To find this cave, the writer gave instructions to draw a straight line on a map between Stringybark Ck on the east and Euroa in the west, and the cave would be found near where the line intersected Blue Range.

The above picture of Blue range is the eastern end, and it stretches for miles, although the writer refers to the western end. With this information we now have an idea more than likely, as to where two of the four police party went on that first and fatal day.

While the above letter does mention Stringybark Creek, I consider the letter to be a trigger that set off a chain of events for the apprehension of the Kellys. Mansfield Guardian dated 16 Nov reported that 'Walter Lynch was with the Kelly party the night before the police were murdered and could give information as to who the unknown men are who are with the Kellys'. In search for reasons why the the police decided to camp at Stringybark Ck instead of anywhere else within the hundreds of square miles of the Wombat Ranges , we should ask the question, ' did Percy Bromfield , Willy Reynolds, Walter Lynch, John Martin or a Mr.

Tolmie' or any one of those men notify the police of the Kelly's being at Bullock Ck. Then, consider the Blue Range letter being sent only a week before the police set out and in it suggesting the Kellys could be at Blue Range not far from Stringybark Creek. To show how close the two camps were, in the picture below the aircraft wing strut is Stringybark Ck. For the full story, Blue Range, read the letter and see the map. Including the only known photo of the actual trees fired at by the Kellys during their target practice, well before the shootings at Stringybark Ck I spotted this remarkable picture detail only very recently, Aug This looks at the possibility there were two huts at Kellys Ck.

Another first is a photo found of the Kelly Ck sawmill that was constructed directly over the Kelly hut site in Recently it has been recovered for preservation. This new page reports on other Kelly related items. The gun was found in a mine shaft at Beechworth 's together with three other muzzle loaders and are very old. They were probably part of the Kelly sympathizer armourment and dumped as the EK inscription may have become a liability to the owner.

Story 11, The Stringybark Creek Investigation May Read how five historians investigate the true site of the police camp at Stringybark Creek after 40 year believing it was on the Eastern bank of of the creek. All indications are it was on the Western side of the creek. Time line for the Two Huts stories The two huts stories are itemised in the following time line points. Un be known to the police troopers, these camps were only 1 mile apart. Gun shots heard at Kelly camp. Kellys find police camped at Stringybark Ck near the Shingle hut.

There is no indication in the records of exactly where the photos were taken. Careful examination of shadow details reveal the direction of North in the photo.

Orientation of the Burman photos. Nov , Burman's photo of the Stringybark Ck murder scene were advertised and sold through the Mansfield Guardian within one month of the tragedy.

The photo and the sketch are compared to reveal serious problems of orientation. This raises the question - are the views printed back to front. Hall of Mansfield while gang is on the run.
