October 17th     The View

Clay was a featured guest on The View.  He reported on his visit to a Trump Rally last week in Wilkes Barre.

Clay did an excellent job of reaching out to the Trump voters.  He listened, he didn’t demean any of their answers and he kept control of the conversation.

His live conversation with the members of The View panel was great.  The information he shared was important for all to hear.  He proved that you can disagree with people but still be kind.

The concert beautiful.  Clay’s voice was amazing. The audience was full of people from Chandler and they all seemed to love the concert!

That seems to be all for 2016!!  I can’t believe that it took 4 days to summarize the year!!  And, just think…I didn’t mention everything.

Although none of us are sure exactly what Clay’s next project will be, I hope he knows that he has a large group of supporters who are here and ready to help in whatever way we can.

We can’t leave 2016 without a wonderful song by Clay Aiken.  This video is rather old, but it is wonderful.  The beginning is a bit loud, but the rest is amazing.

Would you survive if Clay sang this to you???

 Happy New Year’s Eve!
