ASCAP has announced that singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson has renewed her agreement with the performing rights organization. ASCAP will continue to license public performances of her songwriting catalog.

Clarkson’s relationship with ASCAP stretches back to the beginnings of her music career, when the former head of ASCAP’s Nashville office, Connie Bradley, recognized her talent and signed her in 2003. Later that same year Clarkson’s debut album Thankful entered the charts at No. 1.

“Kelly Clarkson is the total package,” said ASCAP EVP of Membership John Titta. “She’s an incredible songwriter, a powerhouse vocalist and a creator who constantly seeks to push her artistry into new territory. Radio listeners love her and we are thrilled to represent her music worldwide. We can’t wait to hear what comes next.”

On Oct. 4, Clarkson will release her first children’s book, River Rose and the Magical Lullaby, featuring an original lullaby that she wrote. She is currently planning a new album for release on Atlantic Records in 2017.
