Kelly Clarkson and RCA Records, in association with Rain, today announced the Kelly Clarkson Open Mic App is available on the App Store. The Kelly Clarkson Open Mic App is a unique singing game that allows players to choose a level of difficulty and then perform a Clarkson song into the iPhone mic or a microphone connected to an iPod touch. Performances are awarded a score that is decided by pitch and rhythm with players able to post their scores to Facebook, Twitter or to the Scoreboard within the App.
“Kelly Clarkson is a world-wide superstar who has always had a tremendous relationship with her fans,” said Tom Corson, EVP/GMA RCA Music Group. “Rain and Kelly devised the perfect app to allow Kelly fans to experience her songs all over again.”
The game features five tracks off Miss Clarkson’s current album All I Ever Wanted including her current single Already Gone as well as, I Do Not Hook Up and the smash hit My Life Would Suck Without You. The app also contains exclusive video of Kelly Clarkson giving instructions on how to play along with a few expert singing tips.
“It was a pleasure to develop a unique app like Kelly Clarkson Open Mic utilizing the revolutionary features of iPhone and iPod touch,” said Andrew Howlett, president of Rain. “Kelly and the RCA team were fantastic to work with and we know fans will love singing along with these great tracks. Good luck staying on key!”
Additionally, fans who register the highest score on Superstar mode for the track Already Gone will be eligible to win a very special prize. The grand prize winner in each US tour market will get the chance to sing Already Gone at Clarkson’s soundcheck, win tickets to the show and experience a special meet & greet. One runner up in each US tour market will receive tickets to a concert along with a meet & greet.
“I know my fans are as competitive as I am, and I bet we see some high scores! I can’t wait to meet the winners out on the road during my tour,” Clarkson said.
The Kelly Clarkson Open Mic App is available for $4.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.
