Piece by Piece is Clarkson’s seventh studio album and it drops March 3, 2015, but the Grammy winner almost didn’t make a new album because she thought she lost her voice after the birth of her daughter in 2014.

“Afterwards was the part where I literally had a moment where I cried and drank wine all day,” Clarkson, 32, told ET Canada in an interview. “I was like, ‘Oh God, I’m not going to be a singer anymore’ … I was bawling to my husband and completely hammered, just going, ‘Oh my God, it’s over. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I guess I could do more charity work.’ I didn’t know what I was going to do.”

As for Piece by Piece, it’s bound to make you get up and feel the groove.

“It’s an uplifting record. I’ve always been a person about empowerment and doing empowering songs,” she says. “There’s empowering songs on the record, and there’s a lot of positive on there.”

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
