Clay Aiken – Watching The Positive Reaction


On Sunday, January 30, 2011, Clay Aiken sang the National Anthem at the NHL All-Star game. The game was held in Raleigh, North Carolina.

When asked about the game, Clay said:

We all rally behind the home team. I don’t think anybody in Raleigh knew much about hockey until the Hurricanes came to town, but now everybody has learned to love it.

Clay did an amazing job of singing at the game. He sang with confidence and his voice was “spot-on.” It was a joy to watch Clay perform and see the positive reaction from the players and the fans.

The day after Clay sang, I took some time to check out comments from fans and non-fans at many different sites on the internet. I thought they were very positive and that we might like to remember what people said.

Clay nailed the song. His voice was perfect.

I love Clay and I’m so happy to be a fan of his.


This is how our National Anthem should be Performed….. Kudos Mr. Aiken!!

I thought Clay did an excellent rendition of our national anthem. It must be so hard to sing with that major echo in the arena.

Props to him for pulling it off. I may have to check out his tour.

No doubt about it — Raleigh should be proud of their hometown guy — Clay Aiken — I know I am —

he loves and promotes his hometown all the time —

he sure did a fabulous job for them today —

SSB was tremendous. Thank you, Clay!

I am a huge hockey fan and was surprised to have Clay Aiken’s name appear while I was researching game facts.

Listened to the video. WOW, forgot what a beautiful voice he has.

Clay did an amazing job on the National Anthem.

He is a talented man and I am glad that many people were reminded of his great voice.

I can’t wait to see him on tour next month!

Saw it live. The announcer was spot on when he said, “Impressive.”
Clay Aiken can SING–does a beautiful rendition of the SSB. Looking forward to that tour.

  1. Wow, that was wonderful, what a voice Clay has and he did such a great job, it was breathtaking, I haven't watched this video for a long time, so great to see it again. Thanks so much Musicfan xo.

  2. I wasn't there in person, but I've watched Clay perform the SSB many times on youtube.
    The All Star NHL game was here in Columbus, OH this past weekend and if Clay had been singing the SSB, I would have bought a ticket. He always performs it perfectly without any grandstanding.

  3. Thank you Musicfan for all that you do on this website. I just found out I get Esquire Network. I can not wait until April to see Clay on tv. You make my day (GREAT).
