It is Tuesday and everything is going well. We have some good news about Clay Aiken and that always makes for more fun!
A young lady named Jackie had an opportunity of a lifetime. She is a huge fan of Clay Aiken and she got to sing for Clay on Sunday. Not only did she sing, she got to chat with Clay and even got his autograph. Jackie’s brother wrote the following on Facebook:
Great day in Philly today joining my sister for her #AmericanIdol auditions. I myself auditioned in support of her (and failed horribly). But the highlight of the day came when Jackie was invited to audition in front of one of her personal heroes, Clay Aiken. Being a major supporter of autism awareness, Clay was so proud and happy to see Jackie give it her all at the auditions, and even got up from his judging chair to have a one-on-one chat with her! Thanks to everyone who signed her #AutismSings poster! As Clay himself said to Jackie, she’s truly an inspiration to us all!
The following are a few pictures of this amazing visit!
Congratulations to Jackie. The reports from the event all say you were amazing. How exciting it must have been to have the opportunity to meet one of your personal heros!
On Monday morning, Clay sent the following tweet:
Yes…Clay was on the radio yesterday!
Clay visited with John Fugelsang, the host of Tell Me Everything, a talk show on SiriusXM Insight. John is an actor, comedian, television personality and a frequent guest on political TV and radio shows. Before becoming an actor, John worked in Special Education for several years.
Clay and John talked for about 20 minutes. It was obvious that John respected Clay and was glad to have him on the show. We learned the following info:
1. Clay’s mom is in New York with Parker so Clay can talk to John.
2. They talked about his congressional run and the political climate in NC.
3. They talked about Donald Trump and both John and Clay think that Trump running is interesting.
4. John said the time was too short and he hopes Clay will return for an hour chat.
5. John was impressed with all that Clay has accomplished and was excited about the National Inclusion Project.
All and all, it was a great interview!
The following is a short part of the interview. Click on the bottom line of the tweet!
