2. Kelly Clarkson
Things are going pretty well for Kelly Clarkson but that is not how they have always been. Before her big break on American idol, the star had faced a long chain of unfortunate events. Her home had caught fire when she was struggling to make it as a singer in Los Angeles.
The apartment burned to the ground and she was forced to live out of her car. She used to shower at a fitness club that she was a member of. Those are probably some of the things that inspired her hit song, Stronger. What didn’t kill her definitely made her stronger.
