Billy Gilman, Kelly Clarkson Sing ‘It’s Quiet Uptown’ on ‘The Voice’ Finale [WATCH]
Billy Gilman got an assist from someone who knows a thing or two about TV singing competitions during The Voice Season 11 finale on Tuesday night (Dec. 13): Kelly Clarkson joined Gilman for a performance of "It's Quiet Uptown" from the musical Hamilton.
Both in all black, Gilman and Clarkson sang "It's Quiet Uptown" on a smoke-filled, blue-and-purple-lit stage; readers can press play on the video above to watch their performance. Clarkson -- the original American Idol winner -- sings "It's Quiet Uptown" on the Hamilton Mixtape, which features popular musical artists performing songs from the smash hit musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Gilman skyrocketed to stardom following the release of “One Voice,” his debut single, in 2000; he was 11 years old at the time, making him the youngest country artist to ever earn a Top 40 hit. Gilman’s album of the same name earned double-platinum status, but his following singles and albums did not achieve the same level of success. In November of 2014, Gilman revealed that he is gay — and called out the country music industry to support LGBTQ artists.
