Stop What You're Doing And Listen To Postmodern Jukebox's Soulful Cover Of Kelly Clarkson's 'Since U Been Gone'

It's Kelly Clarkson meets Aretha Franklin.

Scott Bradlee's music collective Postmodern Jukebox has been on tour, which means they've been producing a ton of incredible videos that show their own takes on songs we know and love. From Gloria Gaynor's late '70s hit "I Will Survive" to Alessia Cara's new song "Scars to Your Beautiful" to the Family Guy theme song, it seems like there's no tune PMJ can't totally nail. 

Most recently, they returned to do an incredibly soulful performance of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone." Mykal Kilgore, who you might remember from PMJ's viral cover of "My Heart Will Go On," took on lead vocals for this one. 

"If you've caught Mykal on #PMJtour as our show emcee, you know that he is an absolute force of nature onstage. His stage presence recalls the legends of the Motown era, and his pitch perfect, stratospheric vocal range is simply without peer in the music world today," Bradlee wrote in a blog post. " 'Since U Been Gone' — with its wide range and dramatic arc — is a perfect showcase for his voice, and adding some early Aretha Franklin — style horn riffs and Gospel backups by Vince Cannady and Jeniffer Williams created a unique, soulful backdrop for this cover of Kelly Clarkson's first big hit."
