Clay Aiken Sings A Beautiful Version of Unchained Melody

In June of 2010, Clay Aiken was a guest on the popular daytime talk show, The View.  It had been two years since Clay had visited the show.  He was there to promote his new album, Tried & True.

The comedian, Mario Cantone was a guest host on the program and seemed to enjoy chatting with Clay.  Clay was asked about his son, Parker and about coming out to the public.  And, as always, Clay was asked about American Idol.  Clay was polite, but didn’t really have much to say about the show.

Clay sang a beautiful version of Unchained Melody and everyone in the audience received a copy of the new CD.

The following screencaps were sent to CANN right after the event and I have kept them in my photobucket account…they are great!  There is also a great video of the show.  Enjoy.

Be sure you watch the second video…it is very short and very funny!!

  6. I loved Clay's version of Unchained Melody. He sings it like no other. I remember when he sang the new version at the PBS special and it was so wonderful. The audience was so surprised and we were in awe! Thanks for posting the videos . I loved watching them.

  7. I so remember this appearance on the View. Clay always seems to have a lot of fun there. Hope he will be on The View soon. Loved that version of UM. He looked so handsome that day.
