Clay Aiken – Surprise!!

Clay Aiken is a pro at surprising his fan.  He did that Friday night when he made a surprise appearance at the David Foster and Friends Concert held at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, California.

Clay was asked onto the stage by his good friend, David Foster and ask to sing.  David asked him to sing Unchained Melody, a song that is a favorite with both the fans and Clay.  Clay was dressed casually and it was obvious that he did not expect to be on the stage as he had to borrow a jacket from a friend back stage.

As he was announced, the audience began sending messages by twitter and soon, many of the fans heard of Clay’s appearance.  Fortunately, a Clay fan was in the audience and was able to video the performance on her phone.  The video is not the best, but the sound is wonderful.  Clay was brilliant in his rendition of this song.  His voice was clear and full and a real statement of his recovery from his surgery.

A big thank you to David Foster for inviting Clay to sing.  Another thank you to Clay for singing and and a BIG thank you to the fans who were able to get the “Clack.”

The following is the video of the performance.  It is certainly worth the listen.


Here is a new video that was posted Sunday morning.  The video is better.


WOW!!  You can really see him and hear the intro in this one.
