I was introduced to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids on May 24, 2004. As a Clay Aiken fan, I watched with anticipation as Clay took the stage of the New Amsterdam Theatre. Joining the talented Heather Headley, the two artists sang a wonderful rendition of Can You Feel The Love Tonight from the Lion King.
When it was announced that Clay was singing on Broadway for this wonderful concert, I wanted to know more so I did some Internet research and finally found BC/EFA. I made my first donation to the organization that night.
Clay has been a great friend and supporter of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. While performing on Broadway in Spamalot, Clay actively participated in the Easter Bonnet Competition and the Broadway Bears competition. Last February, Clay was one of 64 performers who participated in Broadway Backwards 6. Clay brought the house to tears as he sang a beautiful rendition of Home from The Wiz.
