The last week of September, 2011…it just might go down as one of the most joyous times for fans of Clay Aiken. After months of quiet, Clay has re-emerged, sounding rested, excited and ready to WOW the world!
After a blog with lots of information on Monday, it was announced on Wednesday that Clay would be hosting his second live video chat. The event is scheduled for Friday, October 7, at 8:30pm EST and is for Official Fan Club members only.
So…start collecting your questions for Clay. You can submit them ahead of time in the Campaigns section of the OFC. If you cannot make the chat this time, it will be recorded and posted so it can be seen at a later date. For more information about the video chat, please visit the OFC for the details.

On Wednesday, Digital Music News reported about the Scion Music (less) Music Conference that is taking place in Los Angeles right now.
The topic I found very interesting was titled:
How Artists Deal With All the Hate…
To have a discussion about the topic of hate must mean that it is a concern for many musicians. The following are some of the points reported on DMN:
- The Internet is full of hate.
- Technology has totally amplified the level of hate being directed at the artist and their work.
- If you grow large enough, you will get lots of hate.
- The haters are the most vocal, and tend to drown out those that truly appreciate the performer.
- People only have the courage to do it on the Internet and it’s coming from people who are on the Internet 17 hours a day.
- There’s definitely a lot of hate on Twitter.
- Hate does play in the development of artists – and it tests a performers creative resolve.
- There should be some honesty in the form of feedback. It can be immensely valuable…if the artist can take it.
Artist who put their heart and soul into their music should not have to read so much hatred. I am always appalled when I read some of the comments written about so many celebrities. I just don’t understand. To me it is just anonymous bullying. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to read even one hateful post.
