Los Angeles - Kelly Clarkson spent the morning in hospital before her fundraising concert on Saturday.

The Breakaway singer staged the Miracle on Broadway event at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena at the weekend and told the sell-out crowd she had sought medical treatment to ensure she was well enough to perform.

She said: ''Y'all, I spent all morning in the ER. But don't worry. They gave me a shot of B12 and I'm feeling great and so excited to be here!''

Joining Kelly at the show were singers including Hayley Williams, Meghan Trainor and Garth Brooks, but the first special guest to take to the stage was her six-month-old daughter River Rose. Her child with husband Brandon Blackstock who donned headphones and a red dress to match her mother's.

Proud Kelly, 32, said: ''Isn't she just the cutest? This is her first Christmas and her first Christmas dress and I just had to bring her out here to show her off. I've probably scarred her for life!''

During the show, the former American Idol star performed several tracks from her 2013 Christmas album Wrapped in Red and revealed the title track was written for her husband.

She explained: ''I had been single a long time and this song was my 'I'm going to do it moment', my way of saying 'I'm all in.' ''

Just before the finale, Kelly was delighted to announce that over $200 000 had been raised for four local charities from ticket sales and text and online donations.

She then cried tears of joy when performer Trisha Yearwood ran out and whispered in her ear.

Kelly revealed to the crowd: ''Trisha just told me that she and Garth are going to match every dollar we raise tonight.

This really is a miracle! I love y'all so much and can't wait to do it again. Merry Christmas and see you next year!''

The singer uploaded a video of one of her performances from the night:
