Kelly Clarkson has released an exclusive live version of her holiday song "Christmas Eve" (listen below), recorded at Spotify Studios NYC. Earlier in November, Clarkson released live versions of "Love So Soft," the lead single from her seventh non-holiday LP Meaning of Life, and a sultry cover of Prince's "Kiss."
"Christmas Eve" is the latest addition to the exclusive album titled Spotify Singles and she's pulled out all the stops with a full backing arrangement including holiday bells. Once again, Clarkson's live voice shines, with subtle differences between the studio version and the new release.
"Christmas Eve" was originally included as a song to accompany her second children's book, "River Rose and the Magical Christmas." Though it was released the same day as the book via YouTube and download, it could have easily fit on her 2013 holiday set Wrapped in Red.
