Clay Aiken – Fun To Watch

Three distinguished music writers collaborated together to pen the Clay Aiken hit, “I Survived You.” This piece of music was a huge hit when it was performed live by Clay. We saw a bit of the thespian when he sang this particular song.

Ty Lacy attended USC on a Vocal Opera scholarship. After graduation, he moved to Nashville at the advice of industry professionals.

In 1992 Ty signed with Starsong Music, now EMI Christian Music. It was during this time that he penned over 200 songs sought after by Christian artists. More than 20 of them were number one hits on the CCM charts. Recently, Ty made the move into the Pop/R&B culture.

Jess Cates is a Los Angeles based songwriter who has co-written many multi-platinum selling songs. Jess is well liked by the American Idol franchise. He has written songs for over ten different Idols. His most popular Idol song is David Archuleta’s debut single, “Crush.”

Jeff Franzel is a multi-talented songwriter and composer with over 20 years experience in the music business. Jeff began his career as a jazz pianist and toured with many groups, including the big band of legendary bandleader Les Brown.

Jeff’s songs have been featured on over 20 platinum albums in the U.S. and other countries. On the U.S. Billboard charts, Jeff has had a #2 pop hit and a top 10 AC hit, and has also had numerous #1 hits in the U.K., Australia, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland and Brazil.

These three artists have very diverse backgrounds but came together to write a great song for Clay.

The following video is a wonderful montage of many concert performances of “I Survived You.” I found it to be fun to watch.
