Today, Sunday, January 30th, Clay Aiken will be performing in the large RBC stadium in his hometown of Raleigh. Clay will be singing the National Anthem at the NHL All-Star game at 4:00pm ET. Clay has had many opportunities to sing in Raleigh and he certainly has sung in RBC arena before.
If you were a fan of Clay when he was on American Idol, you probably remember the AI Tour stop in Raleigh. On August 6th, 2003, the residents of Raleigh opened their hearts to Clay as he rose triumphantly on a platform from beneath the stage. It was a moment that will always be remembered by Clay and his many fans. When his performance was finished, Clay stood silently for several minutes as he received an ovation that brought him to tears.
Today, Raleigh has the opportunity to open their hearts again when Clay steps up to sing the National Anthem. There is no doubt that Clay will sing with a strong voice and show his pride for his city and country.
I love the pictures from Clay’s American Idol performance in Raleigh. When you see the pictures you can almost hear the audience screaming its love to Clay.
