Clay Aiken – Light Up Your Face With Gladness!



by Charlie Chaplin

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying.
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile-
If you just smile.


Did you know that today is World Smile Day?

Harvey Ball, a commercial artist, was the man that created the smiley face in 1963. It is now the most recognized symbol of good will and cheer on the planet.

Ball chose the first Friday in October to celebrate World Smile Day. The first World Smile Day was held in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1999. According to Ball,

“the smiley face knows no politics, no geography and no religion . . . for at least one day each year, neither should we.”

World Smile Day’s slogan “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!” is one of the best sayings anyone could chose to live by.

If you’re looking for a reason to perform an act of kindness with a smile on your face, today is the perfect day to get your Smile On!


Dance like no one is watching…that’s sure to bring a smile to your face…


 Walk around and extend a smile to people you meet. It can be done at home, at work, in a store or restaurant, at your place of worship or even on the sidewalk.

If you need help with this, pretend that you are a celebrity. Imagine that people are looking at you to see if you are friendly or not.

Extend a warm smile to your fans!

  1. I hope everyone shares lots of smiles today. Looking at those gorgeous pictures sure stated my day off with one. 🙂

  2. Charlie Chaplin just wrote the music. The lyrics were penned by others in 1954 for Nat King Cole. Strange this would come up right now. I've been listening to Robert Downey Jr.s version for days now. I'd love to hear Clay's!! I like #3 and 4. Any man would kill for hair like that!!

  3. You are ABSOLUTELY! right. Clay has the most beautiful SWEET SMILE in the world. Thank you for posting all those pictures.

  4. Clay has the ability to make everyone smile with his smile. My favorites are the ones post singing. Starting on idle, as soon as he was done singing he would crack that gorgeous boyish grin. But my all time favorites are the natural ones when he thinks no one is looking or he is reacting to those around him. His smile is priceless just as OMC is.

  5. I agree Gay, how can we choose, they're all so great, he sure has a beautiful smile, makes me smile too. Thanks Musicfan xox

  6. I love when Clay smiles with his eyes as well as his lips so No1 is my favourite, though love them all.

  7. I love #5 the best, but #7 is a close 2nd. He's SO handsome! May he always be in our lives in some way or another.

  8. There is no doubt in my mind! He is a CUTIE pie!!!!!! I just wanna take those cheeks & squeeze 'em together!!!! Thanks as always for sharing!

  9. So hard to choose. #3 & #1 are great. Looking at the others reminds me of what Clay was doing at the time the photos were taken. Thanks for brighten our day.

  10. # 4 and the one on his twitter page with Kelly Clarkson.Hes smiling like a pig who just rolled in slop! See you next week Claybear!
