Clay Aiken – A Heartfelt Thank You!

Thank you is defined as a “conversational form of expressing gratitude”. Essentially it means that if you’re happy with what has happened, you express your gratitude by using the words “Thank You”.

It isn’t meant to be as a reply to an answer, or a way to finish a conversation. It is a way to express your gratitude. People say thank you a million times if they are happy. It’s the human way of sharing an emotion — happiness.

I read an interesting article titled: What Does Thank You Really Mean?  The author had some interesting suggestions about the right way to say “Thank You.”

“How about writing a poetic verse to say thank you? Singing praises in a song?” Basically, if you feel like doing something special to thank someone, do what comes naturally to you. Something that expresses gratitude in a way that’s unique to you and to the situation will be especially meaningful.”

I often think about how many times Clay Aiken has said “Thank You” to his fans.  He has expressed his thanks in interviews with the press, in some of his blogs, song dedications,  and words and actions at the end of almost all of his concerts.  I love that he does something that comes naturally to him and thanks us in his own very special way.

The talented SueReu has been working on a series of videos about Clay Aiken and his touching and unique “thank you” at each concert.

The following video is Part 1 of a 3 part series.  Sue says that she got the idea about doing the videos when she read comments that some fans were upset that Clay never thanked his fans at the end of the tour.  I am so glad that Clay thanked us his way…night after night, after night!!

Sue also said that Part 2 and 3 of this series would be debuted at CANN.  The schedule is not exact, but Sue hopes to have Part 2 finished some time this week.

What do you think about Clay’s unique “thank you?”  Do you think he appreciates his fans and thanks them for their support?
