Clay Aiken - Who is he?

Clay Aiken - Who is he?

He's articulate, intelligent, thoughtful of others, and caring.
He's a phenomenal young man of many talents.
The list of good things he has accomplished these past few years would fill a book, and he's just getting started.

He's the subject of many a blog and headline.
Check out the great blogs listed at the bottom of this page,

The following montage is a medley of Clay's songs from concerts and CDs.

June is Bustin' Out All Over--does anyone remember this song from Carousel?
June always makes me think of this movie, that I have watched many times. The Broadway version started in 1945 and ran for 890 performances. At least I have a good excuse not to see that one--it was before my time!

June is also famous for being the month for roses--I love roses!

The rose is the June birthflower. Rose is known as the flower of passion as the ancient Greeks believed that Aphrodite the goddess of love gave a rose to Eros the god of love. Roses have many flower meanings according to their color and number of roses in a bouquet. All roses symbolize love and appreciation.

Color Meanings:

Red: love
Pink: grace, lesser feelings of love
Dark Pink: gratitude
Light Pink: admiration, sympathy
White: innocence, purity, secrecy, friendship, reverence and humility.
Yellow: Yellow roses generally mean dying love or platonic love.
Yellow with red tips: Friendship, falling in love
Orange: passion
Burgundy: beauty
Blue: mystery
Green: calm
Purple: protection (paternal/maternal love)

Fun and interesting fact: The rose is the national flower of both England and the United States, and the state flower of several U.S. states including Iowa, North Dakota, Georgia, New York and Texas. Portland, Oregon holds an annual rose festival to celebrate the rose, and in Southern California there is an annual Rose Parade consisting of floats designed with hundreds of thousands of roses for decorations.

Ashes, I love your blogs.

Clay Aiken is not a carbon copy of anyone else. He is unique.

The fans know who Clay Aiken is, but unfortunately over the past 6 years that is not what RCA/19/AI have tried to project a different Clay. Still, Clay remains true to himself and his values.

Lovely blog! I enjoyed it!
So great to see photos and videos of Clay.

Roses are beautiful. But I thought the Texas State Flower was the bluebonnet. Oh well, I love both of them.

June is busting out all over! Great historical look at roses. Again, makes us smile when we hear Clay. Better to drop roses at his feet/concerts than bras! Again, beautiful blog. luv B
