Single Review: “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful” by Kellie Pickler
Ms. Pickler has had some minor hits with “Red High Heels”, “Things That Never Cross A Man’s Mind” and her powerful hit “I Wonder”. These singles have left her without any real certified radio hits, defined by top 10s and #1s. Despite this Kellie has managed to secure a hugely dedicated fan base and win several awards in more recent awards shows that have brought her career to a new level and have begun to seporate her from her American Idol image. Thus Kellie has met her new level of fame with a new single and an upcoming new album, a fresh start to a growing career.
As an AI alumni it is only appropriate that Kellie takes advantage of her role model figure. She has become a figure of beauty and a face to look to for inspiration in the lives of women, young and old, everywhere. She channels this very significant aspect of her fame into her new single as she tries to instill a sense of self-respect and self-esteem in her crowd of female fans. Kellie attempts to let the girls of all ages and variations know that no matter what anyone thinks of them, from their looks to their personality, they are always beautiful both on the inside and the outsid. It just has such a sense of sincerity and personal connection to Kellie in her performance that it truly shows that she has arrived. “I Wonder” may have been a very powerful and personal hit to her, but this single is the first time Kellie really shines as a star that will be around much longer than just a few hits won by her American Idol fame. This will help her sever the ties of Idol and earns her place in the spotlight as an artist all her own.
