Clay Aiken "IT Factor"

What is the "IT Factor"?

The "IT" factor is one of those undefined and subjective attributes that you either have or don't. This undeniable "IT" factor is more than just an attractive quality...it’s also a hallmark of success. “IT” falls into the category of you-know-it-when-you-see-it.

For example--Clay Aiken!



Clay IT's Just You

"IT" shines from a person just by entering a room. Their smile radiates, reaching through their eyes to everyone, even though it seems to be only you.

From day one Clay Aiken had "IT". He still does, and many of us are lucky enough to recognize and embrace it.

PERSONALITY

The ability to communicate - stand out from the crowd

In the past the “it factor” might have been defined as someone with je ne sais quoi, or the indefinable something that makes someone special. The “it factor”, was also called the X Factor in some cases, and still may be referred to as such. Most often, it is applied to celebrities or semi-celebrities that seem to radiate charisma and charm.

Successful politicians, celebrities, or religious leaders have "IT".

Had to come and see this. Where on earth did you get that picture of Parker? He's just adorable. I didn't know there was a photo of his face, how great. Surprised Clay let that happen.

I know all about Clay's "IT" factor. He sure has it. Lois

Beautiful blog as always. Clay Aiken definitely has the "It" factor. I think his son shares it. He certainly looks like his dad.

I love Clay and his family. They are on my mind and in my heart everyday. I pray for him everyday and KNOW Clay is going to be alright. I believe the seed of God is in him and God knows how to take care of what belongs to Him and complete the work He started!

Awww...Ashes..
Parker is beautiful. I couldn't stop staring his cute pictures. Clay has received the best gift from God. Thank you for bringing his picture over and for reminding us why we are all still here. To celebrate the many assets of Clay, the IT factor indeed! Great blog with gorgeous blends and a superb montage done to the fabulous 'Just You'.

You're awesome, Ashes :)

Love you lots,
Sally

Joan, great video! The more I hear the song "Just You," the more I love it! It would be a perfect song for radio play. Hopefully, one day Clay's songs will be heard on the radio. He really deserves it!

Wonderful comparison of Clay and Parker! What cuties!

Thanks for sharing another beautiful blog with us!

Love and Hugs,

Barbara

Parker is just an adorable and loveable little boy. Clay and Jaymes must be so proud.
Looking forward to Clack from Vegas this weekend!

There is no doubt Clay lights up a room when he walks in. I've seen it myself. That's the problem with the idols that came in other years after Clay--they may have great voices, but something is missing--the "it" factor makes such a difference.

ImGranny said...

Clay Aiken sure does have the "IT" factor. I have a strong feeling that he's passed it down to Parker too!
