Kelly Clarkson to Receive Icon Award at 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards Plus Presenters Announced


Kelly Clarkson made her splash into the music world when she won “American Idol” 16 years ago and since then she’s become one of the most recognizable names in music. You could even say an…Icon?

That word is fitting since it was just announced that the “I Don’t Think About You” singer will be awarded the RDMA Icon Award at the 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards. The Icon Award recognizes a distinguished artist whose career transcends popular culture and whose music is beloved by generations of Radio Disney fans. In addition, Clarkson will also perform a medley of her hits which is worth the price of admission for the show.
