Clay Aiken – The Month of May!

“The world’s favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.”
– Edwin Way Teale


Welcome to May…the 5th month of the year!

The month of May has been nice to Clay Aiken.  It has kept him in the headlines!

The following are some of the exciting times in May for Clay!

What can I say? – May 21, 2003 American Idol Finale! There was a 0.5% difference…Ruben won officially, but I will always think that Clay won too!!

May 24, 2004 – Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights Aids. Clay shared the Broadway stage with Lion King star, Heather Headley. He sang “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”

May 1, 2004 – White House Correspondents Dinner. Clay was an invited guest.

In an effort to bring attention to the plight of children in northern Uganda, UNICEF Ambassador Clay Aiken traveled to the conflict affected region to witness the phenomenon of “night commuters,” children who trek from the countryside into slightly more secure towns and UNICEF supported shelters every night to avoid being abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Clay was in Uganda from May 24-27, 2005.

May 4, 2008 – This was the last night of Clay’s first run on Broadway in Spamalot. The stagedoor crowds were huge so Clay climbed through a window and said his goodbye from the roof of the Shubert Theatre.

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014, Clay Aiken was officially announced as the winner of the North Carolina 2nd Congressional District Democratic Primary Race. The North Carolina Board of Elections reported that Clay had 11,678 votes which is 40.86% of the democratic votes cast in district 2.

On May 19, 2012 – Finale of Celebrity Apprentice. The reviewers and audience saw that Clay Aiken was intelligent, highly motivated, funny, articulate and ready to win the entire show. What Happened?

YIKES!!!  I have to stop!

 I have a list of so many May appearances by Clay that could be listed.

I hope we have a lot to add to the list after May 2016!

  1. What a busy man! Whether it's performing, UNICEF, competing, or political ventures, OMC is one of a kind! We love him so! Thanks for the memories!

  2. Very busy man. FYI, I believe the date of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, when he sang with Heather Headley, should be May 24, 2004, not 2014. Otherwise, GREAT JOB!!!
