Clay Aiken – Supports His Good Friend


We carry within us the wonders we seek around us.
~ Sir Thomas Browne

On December 30, 2016, Clay Aiken was at the THE AMERICAN MUSEUM & NATURAL HISTORY in NYC.  He was there to visit and support his good friend, Ruben Studdard.



According to the website, New York Family:

This year marks the 38th annual Kwanzaa celebration at the American Museum of Natural History. This “Songs for the Soul” celebration will be highlighted by a performance by season two American Idol winner, Ruben Studdard. There will also be special activities, a performance by the students of the Celia Cruz Bronx High School of Music, an international marketplace, and special Kwanzaa foods to celebrate the holiday.

I wish I could have been at this program. A visit to the museum is always exciting. Add to that, hearing Ruben sing is always great and I would have learned more about Kwanzaa.

I love that Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard have  continued to remain friends though the last years and still help and support each other in their careers.

  1. It’s really great that Clay and Ruben have remained friends who are so supportive of each other. I would like to see them perform together in the future. The tour they did together was a lot of fun. Maybe they are both too old to dance and have fun like that now. What do you think? ❤ UNCONDITIONAL love for you Clay

  2. Fun to see the new picture of Clay. Like the casual look.
