A Toast To Clay Aiken



February 20, 2009……….    It started with a bit of apprehension.  The wanna-be reporters were leaking a story that Clay Aiken had been dumped by RCA. Any official sources were conspicuously missing; there were only pages and pages of Google headlines that all said the same thing.  Next, there was a visit from Clay on his Fan Club board.  Nothing official, just a short question, asking for some information….ah…..a hint!!  In one quick question, Clay let us know that his fans knew more than Google and that the word Independent was important!!  Then, the moment that many were waiting for, an official announcement that Clay Aiken chose to move on.  That’s when the party started.  It was almost a Perfect Day!!


It was nice to learn that the story of Clay being dumped was a Fantasy!!


Many fans felt that RCA was made up of a Chain of Fools.


The members of the ClayNation hoped that Clay knew that he was Still The One.


As time went by, there were pages of dancing bananas, champagne flutes, and happy faces on every board. Clay’s fans were remembering the first notes of Clay’s Independent Tour and looking forward to another Kyrie.
