Fate stepped in Tuesday and changed the night for eleven very lucky ladies.
Severe weather forced the cancellation of the Celine Dion concert in Raleigh, North Carolina. The concert was part of an auction item at the Champions For Change Gala held in Raleigh last fall. So, ten fans had flown onto Raleigh and were ready to join Clay Aiken in a box for the concert.
Since the fans were all from out of town, scheduling was a big problem. Each one had flights scheduled for Wednesday and many had jobs and family obligations on Thursday. Anticipating this, the BAF and Clay put their heads together and quickly planned a beautiful dinner for the 10 ladies. Clay didn’t come alone. He was joined by Jaymes, Faye, Jerome, and Cheryl, who is Clay’s assistant.
One of the fans, Toni7babe said: “The dinner was excellent, the conversation and the company were even better…….things worked out better than we could ever imagine”. According to the ladies, they spent about three hours with Clay, his family and friends.
One of the original ladies, who was scheduled to attend, is in the hospital and was unable to be with the group. After being informed of this, Clay picked up the phone and called her to wish her well and let her know that she was missed. He asked her how she was feeling and the fan answered that she was feeling a whole lot better now.
Tonight, Clay Aiken did a thoughtful and loving gesture. Sometimes one telephone call tells you more about a person than 100 interviews on TV and the radio.
