Chart-topping “American Idol” vocalist Clay Aiken brings his clarion voice and personal interpretations to new arrangements of iconic songs, including “Mack the Knife,” “It’s Impossible,” “Moon River,” “Misty,” “Unchained Melody” and a duet with Broadway star Linda Eder on Roy Orbison’s classic lament “Crying.” Fellow “American Idol” star Ruben Studdard guest stars.
Taped in Aiken’s hometown, Raleigh, North Carolina, before a wildly enthusiastic audience, Aiken brings his powerful vocals and uniquely personal interpretations to new arrangements of some of the most iconic songs ever written, including “Mack the Knife,” “It’s Impossible,” “Moon River,” “Misty,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” “Suspicious Minds,” “Unchained Melody,” “What Kind of Fool Am I?” and a stellar duet with his special guest, Broadway star Linda Eder, on Roy Orbison’s classic lament, “Crying.”
Having grown up listening to this genre of music, Aiken says, “I wanted to do something that paid tribute to the Johnny Mathis, Perry Como and Andy Williams type of sound, because those artists sang really emotional material and did it wonderfully.” And there were the “tried and true” songs themselves, which Aiken finds “melodically appealing and beautiful.” He adds, “I’ve often joked with friends that I was born at the wrong time because the songs I like to sing are all from earlier eras. So performing this kind of music was an opportunity to just be myself.”
This station also broadcast a wonderful interview with Clay. The 30-minute program is a wonderful introduction to Clay and covers his musical career and his work with The National Inclusion Project and UNICEF. This is a “must-see” interview that is full of lots of information and new clips of Clay in his role of UNICEF Ambassador. You can download the video at Clack Unlimited
