Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold,

everything is softer and more beautiful.

On Sunday, I heard some news about Jerome Bell.  And, even though he has had even more surgery, he is in “good spirits.”

Please keep Jerome in your thoughts and prayers!

On November 28, 2006, Clay Aiken released a studio EP titled All Is Well.  Originally released as an exclusive recording for Wal-Mart, the popular album finally became available on iTunes in December of 2007.

There are four songs on the All Is Well EP.  The Playlist is:

  1. All Is Well
  2. Christmas Waltz
  3. O Come O Come Emmanuel
  4. My Grown-Up Christmas List

Clay Aiken is listed, along with Jaymes Foster, as an Executive Producer of the EP.  All Is Well debuted at #54 on the Billboard Comprehensive Albums chart. This is different as it is unusual for an EP disc to chart or to have its sales tracked.

The title song,  All Is Well, was written by Michael W. Smith and recorded for his album Michael W Smith Christmas in 1989.  Because it was a popular song, Smith included the song on 2 more of his albums.

Michael W. Smith has released 23 albums and thirteen books. Smith is a three-time Grammy Award winner, and has earned 40 Dove Awards.. Throughout his career, he has sold more than 15 million albums.

Clay Aiken was the featured musical guest on the Capital One Holiday Celebration on Ice in 2007.  The show was televised on Christmas Day and Clay sang songs from his albums Merry Christmas With Love and All Is Well.

Todd Eldredge is a former World Champion and 4-time U.S. Champion.  He chose All Is Well for his skating performance for the Celebration on Ice show.  For many in the audience, the performance of the two artists was the highlight of the show.  Eldredge also used Clay’s recording of this song for his Rockefeller Center performance for the Today Show.

The following video is from the Christmas broadcast of the Capital One Holiday on Ice.  I was lucky enough to be in Las Vegas for the recording of this show.  Were you there too?

Have A Wonderful Monday!

  1. Two super talents performing together! Thanks CANN for the video and the article. Brings back beautiful memories!

  2. So good to hear that Jerome is in "good spirits". Prayers and good vibes going his way!!!!! Loved watching the video again. Remember this so well. No one sings Christmas like Clay!!!
    Thanks Musicfan.

  3. Glad to hear that Jerome is in good spirits. I was not at the ice show in Vegas, but I did watch it on TV. I found it funny at the end when the female skaters took Clay out on the ice and he pretended that he didn't know how to skate. We all remember him skating with the 'kids with special needs' in Raleigh. I ran right out and bought All is Well at Walmart the day it came out. Love those songs. Clay does Christmas best.

  4. Another great post Musicfan! You’re right – the words were a little sparse on the now & then article. I guess it’s because we Clay fans know how much there is to say. Always good pix. So glad to hear that Jerome is in good spirits. That can help with recovery. Still keeping in my thoughts & prayers. I hope Clay is able to visit often. I really enjoyed the singing/skating music video. I don’t remember ever seeing it before. I guess you know what happened to the rest of the day. Another video keeps popping up on YouTube & I just can’t seem to stop. ❤️ UNCONDITIONAL love for you Clay.

  5. Thoughts and prayers to Jerome and his family as their pathway through life has changed forever. He is surrounded by love so I hope it gets him through the bleak days. Thank you musicfan for your wonderful post of all these Clay memories.

  6. Glad to hear Jerome is in good spirits. He was always so nice to all of us. Sweet man. I was also at that magical show in Las Vegas. I have to admit I was watching Clay most of the time. I do remember the finale and all of the skaters and Clay all skating around the ice together. I did remember to cheer the Skaters when they told us to. They were all great. We were all holding our breaths until Clay hit that wonderful last note and he NAILED it. As usual. Wonderful memories. Thanks for posting it.

  7. I wait all year to listen to All Is Well. One of my all time favorites of Clay's. When he sings it……..
    he gives me goose bumps all over!. It's just so beautiful!

  8. All is Well is one of my favorite songs Clay sings.
    It's so good to get updates about Jerome. Thank you!
    Off to watch the video, haven't seen it in awhile.
