Clay Aiken – Good News

During 2004 and 2005, Clay Aiken toured throughout the United States during the holiday season.  Called The Joyful Noise Tours, Clay presented a program that was  filled with joy and was a beautiful way to celebrate the holidays.

One of the most breathtaking moments of the concert was actually the encore.  Good News is a dramatic song which conveys the true meaning of Christmas.  The song was originally performed by the Christian Group, Avalon.  Clay’s performance of the song was exquisite and brought many people to tears.

Good news / Good news
An angel brings Good news
Good news / Good news
I leave you with Good news
Close your eyes / Fold your hands
For a moment let your sorrow fade
Why, oh, why are you afraid
Has this world stripped you of your faith
Close your eyes and on bended knee
Listen to an angel pray
And once again prepare the way
So you’ll see a gift that’s given
For you a time of joy/ Behold a baby boy
Good news / Good news
An angel brings Good news
Good news / Good news
I leave you with Good news
Bow your head / Speak not a word
Let the silence take you far from here
The spirit of a child dry every tear
And may your doubts they disappear
Bow your head and on bended knee
Hear the story once again
The child grew up to wear a cross
A child grew up to pledge a life
For us a time of joy / Behold, Christ a baby boy
Good news / Good news
An angel brings Good news
Good news / Good news
I leave you with Good news
For us His only Son
In a manger wrapped in swaddling clothes
Christ the Savior, Christmas day
All our burdens washed away
We break the bread
We pour the wine
And angels descend with a heavenly sigh
Good news / Good news
An angel brings Good news
Good news / Good news
I leave you with…
I leave you with
Good news

The following video was recorded in Kansas City during the  2005 tour.  I would imagine you will just have to watch it more than once.  I certainly would  love to see this song on Clay’s next Christmas album.
