Clay Aiken – Summer Time

According to the Gregorian calendar, July is the seventh month. On the Roman calendar, it was the fifth month and it was called ‘Quintilis’, meaning ‘fifth’.

Julius Ceasar gave the month 31 days in 46 B.C. The Roman Senate named it ‘Julius’, in honor of Caesar.

The premier holiday of the summer season in the United States is Independence Day, commemorated on July 4th. On July 4th in 1776 the United States declared its independence from England. The day is celebrated with parades, activities, and almost invariably by fireworks.

Several other countries also celebrate similar national holidays during this month.

The Canadians celebrate their more peaceful separation from Britain on the 1st of July.

In France, a similar holiday, Bastille Day, occurs on July 14.

  • The Ruby is the gem for July.
  • The water lily is the flower for the month of July.

  4. Dear Clay, I hope at this time you are constantly working on that beautiful voice. I noticed at the David Foster tribute your voice was not up to par. There were a couple of cracks in your voice. I have been a fan since American Idol. I will always be a fan. In the business of show business people soon forget. Being a former singer myself, working with such people as Merv Griffin, Don Rickles and many more I left the business because I could not take critisizm. I am a married women with two beautiful children. I am very happy but will always regret not continuing. Iam only mentioning this because of my experience. Hope you see this clay.

    • I really doubt that Clay will see your message here. You are more likely to have him read your message if you post it on the official fan club message board. In any case, I would have to disagree with you about his voice. Considering the fact that he was still recovering from rather serious surgery to his jaw, he sang fantastic. Heck, I think it was just as good as before his surgery. I also think it is a bit presumptuous to assume that he is not either working on his voice or his career. From what he has said recently, I have no doubt he is actively working on his career… even if we don’t know what it exactly is at the moment.
