Clay Aiken – Creating A Buzz

On Thursday, the Internet was buzzing about multi-talented Clay Aiken.  His name and information about him could be found in many different categories.  It seems this young man is creating a buzz all over the Internet.

Clay’s name was linked with Dee Snider.  Dee’s newest album drops next Tuesday and the reviews are beginning to pop up.  The album titled Dee Does Broadway, is filled with familiar songs and features many singers in duets with the Twisted Sister star.

One of the first reviews to reach the Internet is on The Dallas Voice.com and is very positive.  I loved what they said about Dee’s duet with Clay Aiken:

I waited with anticipation for track 8, “Luck Be a Lady Tonight.” Teaming with Clay Aiken, this is the musical equivalent of The Twilight Zone. The song starts off gently only to screech into high gear. The juxtaposition is a fun one. Aiken clearly wins in the slower intro, but he holds his own against

Snider’s shrill vocals. Aiken can actually belt out a heavy metal tune and sounds in the vein of Ozzy Osbourne or Don Dokken. The potential that this song could have been a train wreck is easily dismissed and it turns out to be the best track on the album.

Congratulations to Dee and Clay.  I can’t wait to hear the song on Tuesday.  To read the entire article about Dee Does Broadway, click DALLASVOICE.

Clay has been a friend and supporter of the Caregiver Magazine since 2005.  Clay was a keynote speaker at their conference and a recipient of the Robert M. Barg Memorial Achievement Award in 2005.

On Thursday, the organization announced the Henry Winkler would receive the Magazine’s Rare Advocacy Award on May 24th.  In the article, they did mention Clay.  What a wonderful group of people who are named as previous winners and what an honor to be a part of the group.  The following was posted:

Today’s Caregiver magazine and http://www.Caregiver.com, the nation’s foremost print magazine and Web community educating, training and supporting family and professional caregivers since 1995, will present the Robert M. Barg Memorial Achievement Award to actor, director, author and producer, Henry Winkler during the May 24th Western Connecticut Fearless Caregiver Conference in Southbury Connecticut. “This prestigious award has only been presented to a select few caregiver advocates in the organization’s 17 year history who represent a special brand of kindness and advocacy and whose hard work truly makes a difference in the lives of those in need,” said Gary Barg, founder and editor-in-chief of the first national magazine for caregivers, Today’s Caregiver magazine, http://www.caregiver.com, and the Fearless Caregiver Conferences. Prior recipients of the Robert M. Barg Memorial Achievement Award include Debbie Reynolds, Clay Aiken, Della Reese, Robert Urich, Leeza Gibbons, Clay Walker, Patricia Richardson and Linda Dano.

It is wonderful to know that the name of Clay Aiken will always be a part of this list.  More information can be found at the links in the article.

Theatermania is a group that writes about the top headlines in the field of theater.  On Thursday they announced that:

Cast members from the Tony and Drama Desk-nominated Broadway musical Newsies will join the previously reported recording star Clay Aiken and Tony nominee Montego Glover at Family Equality Council’s Night at the Pier celebration in New York City on Tuesday, May 8.

The event will feature Broadway-themed performances in honor of the 30th anniversary of Family Equality Council – the national organization that connects, supports and represents the one million parents in the U.S. who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT).

Aiken is currently featured on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. He is perhaps best known for his appearances on FOX’s American Idol, and was seen on Broadway in Monty Python’s Spamalot, playing the role of Sir Robin. Glover received at Tony nomination for her performance as Felicia Farrell in Memphis.

I certainly wish I could be at this wonderful event.  I always love to hear Clay sing and I would love to hear some of the music from Newsies.

CarterMatt.com is a site that reports and reviews TV shows.  They have reported on Celebrity Apprentice after each episode.

Today, the site published an article titled; Clay Aiken fights against Internet hate

The writer says:

Clay Aiken knows one thing by now after years of dealing with the public’s reaction to his sexuality — how to be comfortable in your own skin, and not give in to some of the bigotry and hate that often comes in your direction based on people with no right to judge.

The writer quoted Clay in the article:

“I occasionally retweet some folks just 2 highlight their ignorance & stupidity. I certainly don’t take offense from [stuff] said by idiots!”

I am glad that CarterMatt wrote about this important topic.  Internet bullies and paid bullies are getting out of hand!

 Which one of these topics do you think is the best for Clay?

  1. Creating a buzz indeed! The "public " has to admit that Clay steals the spotlight – He is a great
    entertainer but also a truly caring, intelligent, young man with the best kind and loving heart!
    The articles are great and so appreciated, Musicfan!

  2. What a wonderful article to wake up to. I guess I went to bed before the article about Dee and Clay came out. I cannot wait to hear "Luck Be A Lady". Great job as well on all the other articles. It's hard to keep up with everything happening lately…but Clay fans are loving it!!! Thanks Musicfan

  3. It is difficult to pick the best article because each one is about the many different sides of Clay. Can't wait to hear Luck Be A Lady on Dee's album. That should surprise many people! Caregiver Mag gets down to the basic of Clay…a caring man. Night at the Pier will highlight Clay's talents among the other Broadway performers. I have not been following Clay's Twitter page, but Matt Carter sure has been. Wonderful article about how Clay manages to live his life dispite those haters.

  4. this is indeed wondefull you sure do keep us in the know and thank you so much indeed great articials

  5. Luck Be a Lady Tonight. I'm thinking that recording with Dee was that "once in a while" for which Clay was willing to step out of his comfort zone. Almost sure he'll be hopping right back into that comfort zone "post haste" for his next CD. Won't mind that a bit. Bet LBALT was a challenge that he just couldn't resist. Glad he did it for himself and Dee, and also for the fans who have been wanting him to "let it all out" for a long time. Sounds like the Dallas reviewer really liked it to give it such high praise. Congrats to Clay and Dee!

  6. I am very impressed that Clay is involved in so many different types of events. After reading the review, I am really looking forward to hearing Clay sing LBALT with Dee, I also am looking forward to hearing about the Family Equality Council event. All the organizations that Clay is involved with are very worthwhile.

  7. I'm not a fan of Dee's type of music, but I'll be downloading his duet with Clay for sure. I hope the CD does well since Dee seems like a great guy.
