Her less than ideal early life led her to music, where she joined the school choir and musicals. Her music career got off to a rocky start including a four month stint in L.A. but she would soon be discovered by American Idol and all of America would fall in love with her. Clarkson considers herself to be a Christian, though she insists that she isn't a fundamentalist about her religion at all.
