Kelly Clarkson made a gay couple's dream come true by becoming an impromptu witness to their wedding during her Las Vegas residency concert. The Grammy winner paused her performance on New Year's Eve to speak with the couple, who were identified as Ryan and Marcelo.
One of the men announced that their wedding was that night, and Clarkson handed her microphone to an officiant who performed a quick ceremony, declaring them husband and husband. The crowd erupted in cheers and applause as the officiant made the announcement.
After taking photos with the newlyweds, Clarkson joked with a woman who seemed to be one of the grooms' mothers about what her baby had just done. She then wished the couple luck and expressed her joy at the event. Clarkson's Las Vegas residency began in July, following the release of her album "Chemistry."
The original 10-show run concluded in August, but she later announced a four-date extension that will end next month. "Chemistry," Clarkson's 10th studio album, was released in June and features 14 songs inspired by her divorce from ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.
Clarkson explained that she hadn't been working on an album until the divorce, and the songs cover a range of emotions, reflecting the arc of a relationship. Despite the difficult circumstances, Clarkson found inspiration in her personal life and translated it into her music.
