In 2008, Clara competed in the inaugural Next Star singing competition. She performed Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" and placed second in the competition.

The following year, she made it into the semi-finals round of Idol 2009 after performing renditions of Duffy's "Warwick Avenue" during the audition rounds. She performed Oh Laura's song "Release Me" for her semi-finals appearance, but did not receive enough votes to advance to the finals round.
