He did it again, improved on perfection! Every time Clay performs he raises the bar higher...totally amazing.

Has everyone caught their breath now after watching and hearing Clay's Solitaire from Friday night for Neil Sedaka's 50th?

Since "Invisible" was so rudely cut short in a previous blog, I'm adding it to this one.


This was to be an all Halloween blog, but have to slip in one simple blend from the great performance.

#120 Solitaire


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket



"I have lost my song forever to you. It will always be a Clay Aiken song."
~ Neil Sedaka ~


Every Clay fan knows these now famous words from Neil Sedaka after Clay sang Solitaire on AI2 in 2003.
Everything about that performance was perfection, Clay's rendition of the song, the ambiance, and the stage lighting.

In 2004, Clay released the song as a single with The Way. He also was a special guest on AI3 to sing Solitaire. That is the version playing for this blog.

These days when I think of Neil Sedaka (I've always been a fan) Solitaire comes to my mind and of course Clay. Not necessarily in that order!

The rest of the blog really doesn't have anything connected to Solitaire..although in my mind I believe we see him today thanks in part to the song.

#119 - Invisible??

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by
a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with
deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Our man Clay is one busy fella...certainly anything but Invisible!

We now get to see a bit of him and hear him every week on the AI2 Rewind series.

Then he is a guest for Neil Sedaka's 50th Anniversary on October 26. Congratulations to all who are going to that one!

November 1 Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader is on TV.

November 6 Clay sings for the Holiday on Ice show. That is to be taped and shown to us on Christmas Day on NBC. Lots of lucky fans are getting to the taping or so I hear!

The new Christmas in the Heartland Concert Tour starts November 26 until December 22. I sure am looking forward to the new clack from the tour!

Then in the new year, our Clay has his starring role on Broadway's SPAMALOT! Dare I hope for some clack from that too??? This run is from January 18 to May 5.

And...somewhere in the new year we'll get a brand new CD..woo-hoo!! That will mean lots of TV appearances on the shows too

All that will keep us busy for quite awhile, isn't it wonderful?

No wonder Clay has been so happy and excited lately! He'll be wonderful in his 'Sir Robin' role, wish I could see it! Since that's only a pipe dream, I was also relieved when he said the new CD is moving ahead as planned!
