Clarkson had the final stop of her Meaning of Life tour at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, SC, and fans captured the emotional moment on video. She got through most of "Piece by Piece" accompanied by her guitarist, and then another man — her husband, Brandon Blackstock — quietly walked up behind her with his own guitar. ICYMI, Clarkson wrote the song about her father's neglect and how her husband's unconditional love restored her faith in families.
Clarkson was visibly moved by the unexpected appearance and was speechless for a moment before she continued the song while Blackstock played. The couple embraced and kissed at the end, and Blackstock whispered, "I love you, baby" into her ear. She definitely got teary-eyed, and so will you.
