Kelly Clarkson Wraps You With ‘These Arms of Mine’ for Her Otis Redding Cover

Kelly Clarkson embraced an old-school classic by covering Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine” for Friday’s (March 5) Kellyoke segment on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

A single spotlight illuminated Clarkson’s silhouette as she walked up to the mic on the blacked-out stage before yellow and purple lights lit up the talk show host.

“These arms of mine/ They are burning/ Burning from wanting you/ These arms of mine/ They are wanting/ Wanting to hold you,” she crooned the chorus with her own soulful spin.

“These Arms of Mine” was Redding’s first-ever single that he released with Stax Records in 1962 and was featured on his 1964 debut album Pain in My Heart. The song peaked at No. 22 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and No. 85 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1963.

This isn’t Clarkson’s first time singing the song: She covered “These Arms of Mine” back in 2016 while teasing a big announcement on her Facebook Live with help from her longtime musical director Jason Halbert, who was at his usual post by the piano five years later for this latest cover.

Watch her latest Kellyoke cover of “These Arms of Mine” below.
