Clay Aiken – The Official Fan Club

It was good to see some exciting movement happening at Clay Aiken’s Official Fan Club on Tuesday.  Since the OFC moved its location, many fans have been a bit lost over there and it has been very quiet on the site.

On Tuesday, the fans were treated to a blog from Clay Aiken.  Clay didn’t have any breaking news to share, he just blogged to keep in touch with his fans.  Clay calls it a “stream of consciousness” blog.  To most of Clay’s fans, the content of the blog is not so important.  It’s always fun to read a blog from Clay. Whatever Clay says isn’t as important as realizing that he is thinking of us…and that feels really good!!

In the news section of the OFC came the announcement of an exciting concert by Clay in Chicago.  Although many fans already knew about this concert, it was nice to read some details of the concert.

The Park West in Chicago is the venue for the October 14th concert.  The Park West is a popular concert venue and nightclub located at 322 West Armitage in Lincoln Park. It originally opened in 1925 as the Park Lane Vaudeville Theater, and then it was a movie theater for several decades until it was renovated into the Park West in the 1970’s.  It’s a great place to see a show because of its intimate setting, tiered seating, and clubby atmosphere. There’s arguably not a bad seat in the house.

According to the announcement at the OFC, Clay will sing his chart topping hits as well as songs from Tried and True. It’s a good chance to hear Clay in an intimate setting and support WTTW, the Chicago public television station.  It’s a win-win event and all in one night!

While we are speaking of Clay’s Official Fan Club, I want to take a moment to commend Clayitagain, a longtime fan of Clay.  She was concerned about the lack of posting at the Fan Club so she started a new place to post and went around to many of the private Clay boards to encourage the members to come and chat at the OFC.  Because of her tenacity, the thread is active and fans have returned to the site.  Thank-you, Clayitagain.

Just one more reminder to keep voting for The National Inclusion Project at the Pepsi Challenge site.  We are about halfway through the month and so many fans are voting each day and even forming partnerships with other fan bases to support each other.  This is the only way that The National Inclusion Project has a chance to win.  The following is a list of sites that need votes.   The few minutes that this voting takes are so important.  Just think… you are helping the National Inclusion Project raise $50,000.

The following message was posted on the National Inclusion Project Facebook:

  1. Musicfan.. How sweet of you to say that…Thank you so much….. I never knew where to go over there, so I just asked a Mod and went ahead…. Like so many things….consistency is the key… I'm just thrilled that people are going back and posting…it's easy to find the thread, and we needed the Official site to be active…
    Glad to hear that the NIP has moved up a spot…You guys are doing a great job of voting each and every day….You're my heros…doing good!!!!!!! It was special yesterday when Clay blogged…it always is exciting when he pops in to say hi. What can I say….I adore the guy!!! Hugs, Judy

  2. What a nice blog today. It has a lot of info !

    I loved Clay's blog yesterday. He just makes me feel good!

    I am voting for the Pepsi Challenge. I vote for NIP each day and try to hit the others too. It is important.

    I am glad that Judy started the new thread at the OFC.

    Thank you for all the info!!

  3. I'm very glad that Judy started the new thread. It was getting so lonely over there. I just don't understand it because it is working faster now and they are certainly trying to fix it up. Anyway, I enjoy posting over there. I often wonder if that encouraged Clay to blog yesterday. Well, whatever it was, I am happy about it. He is just precious and adorable and I don't know what we would do without him. I vote for the Pepsi Challenge every day, and noticed this morning that we got up to #24…that is great. Hope we can get in that top ten. My daughter votes everyday also.

  4. I'm still voting everyday in the Pepsi Challenge. Thanks for making it easy to see what other charities to vote for.

  5. I just love coming here everyday and seeing what new tidbits are in store for us. It's always so informative and uplifting. I've been voting each day and hope to see us keep moving on up. Can't make it to the Chicago concert, however I will be at the Gala. Happy times are coming for those of us lucky enough to see Clay in October!!!!

  6. A lot of work went into this blog I can see! Thank you. It was wonderful having Clay blog again. I dont care if it is a stream of consciousness blog or not; in fact, I love that kind of blog from Clay. He is so witty. I cant wait to go to Chicago and the Gala since I had to miss the PBS taping and Biltmore first concert.

  7. OFC- Please remove my E=mail address. I’m new at this and I thought it said you never publish E-mail addresses. My mistake. Can’t wait for Celebrity Apprentice. I usually don’t watch it but I will this time because of Clay. If anyone has any suggestions to raise the sound on my new Toshiba computer please let t me know. Leanne P
