Clay Aiken – Busy Year!

The year 2008 had to be one of the most memorable years for Clay Aiken.  His life was full of so much, both professionally and personally.

Professionally, Clay was very busy.  In January, he made his debut on Broadway, starring in Spamalot.  At the same time he is recording his new CD.  He was on numerous TV shows and was a featured performer at the Ford Theater Gala.

In his philanthropic endeavors, Clay was involved in three projects for UNICEF and two major fundraisers for BroadwayCares/ Equity Fights AIDS.  He also had his own foundation which is an on-going responsibility.

Personally, Clay became a dad for the first time and announced on People magazine that he was a gay Dad!!

YIKES!!   What a year!!  I hope he had as much fun as his fans did.  It was a fascinating year!

The following video explains the year much better than I could ever wish to.  It is a wonderful “year in review’ and a great tribute to a wonderful guy.

  12. 2008 was definately a huge year for Clay…Professionaly and Personally.

    I am so proud of this young man, who gives so much. I couldn’t be more proud of him, for more than anything to become a father…no matter what the cost…THIS IS THE TRUE MEASURE OF A MAN…. Clay has it in spades…

    I have a feeling that we have only seen the tip of the iceburg..that is Clay Aiken….and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us…..He never disappoints…ever…


  13. We always knew Clay is an amazing performer; on tours, talk shows, skits, quiz show etc. But Clay always has more and in 2008, he revealed new talents and stunned us in Broadway Comic and on TV shows.
    Most of all he still gave so much of this busy year to his charities; UNICEF, Broadway Cares, Equity Fights Aids, Bubel-Aiken Foundations, etc.
    What I love most about him is; He followed his heart and became a Father….Wow….What a man!

  14. 2008 was an awesome year for Clay! Here’s hoping 2010 brings him back to us for even more music and fun! We miss you Clay!!!! Love the video!

  15. Thanks for that video. The Favorite Things Clay montages are wonderful. I love them!

    Love CANN too. You do a great job. Thank you for everything.
