On Monday evening, Clay Aiken posted the following tweet:
If you pray, please pray for my dear friend, Jerome. If you don’t pray, please start.
Jerome Bell has been Clay’s bodyguard and friend since Clay was on tour with Season 2 – American Idol. They have spent hours together, touring, traveling, and have become close friends.
On June 27, 2015, Clay shared some thoughts about Jerome on Facebook:
…Jerome, has been one of the most constant and loyal and trustworthy people I have ever known. He’s been by me for years as not just a colleague and friend, but often as a father figure (something I don’t think he signed up for, but a role he has played with more wisdom and grace than I could have ever imagined) and mentor…
We learned that Jerome was in a serious accident today and is in a fight for his life. This is a time when I am going to do what Clay asked us to do. I hope you will too!
The following are some of my favorite pictures of Jerome
Lets all send lots of positive thoughts to Jerome, his family and to Clay.
We are all here – sending out love!
