  1. When Clay sings "The Real Me" or "Lover All Alone" it just breaks my heart. To me, those are the closest songs to who Clay really is.

  2. He has such a beautiful voice, doesn't he? I love all the songs on this album and the public should have heard it! Best work ever!

    Happy New Year musicfan!!

  3. Clay's "The Real Me" has become an inspiration in my life. It is comforting to be reminded that God sees us as we are, flaws and all, and loves us regardless. I consider this song to be the most compassionate, the most intense, and the most revealing of all Clay's repertoire. It has drawn me ever closer to Clay.

  4. Thank you for reminding us of this video and this song. Such an emotionally charged song for his beautiful voice. I miss Clay Aiken!!!!!!!!

  5. We miss Clay so much, but he did have a very busy time last year with his campaign. He needs to catch up with his personal life first. We his fans, must be patient and let him rest! Thank you musicfan for all the videos you have shared with us these past months. They keep us in touch with our connection with Clay. However there are times when I miss him so much I start to feel sad and wish he was back with us. Love you, Clay: Always and Forever!
