Kelly’s first single for sale, already number 2 on Amazon.com.
Less than a day after Kelly Clarkson was crowned American Idol, her first CD–a single featuring two songs, “Before Your Love” and “A Moment Like This”–is for sale on Amazon.com, and it’s currently the site’s second best seller. The CD will officially be released Sept. 17. The site also lists Justin Guarini’s version of the same CD, which will obviously not be published. It currently ranks 277th. A month later, American Idol Greatest Hits, featuring all 10 finalists, will be released.
