Kelly Clarkson tells The Glasgow Daily Record she was turned away from one record company just because she was white before she found fame on ‘American Idol’. Kelly said: ”I sent my CD demo to lots of record companies. One was really interested and they asked me to go in to speak to them with a view to signing something. ‘When they saw me and realized I was white they didn’t want to know. They thought I was black when they heard me singing. I didn’t think anything like that could happen, but it is all about marketing. They didn’t think they could market a white girl who sang like a black girl.”
