Clay Aiken can almost always count on Good Morning America to support his career. This is one show that Clay has visited many times, both as a musical guest and an interesting celebrity.
On May 7, 2008, Clay visited GMA one more time. Clay sang On My Way Here and Ashes and also a “bump”…..a short portion of Invisible to get the crowd going.
Clay Aiken fans lined up early to make it into the studio to see the taping in person. In the wee hours of the morning, the crowd spotted the band arriving along with Mary, Quiana and Angela. Clay arrived in a green hoodie and, according to the fans in attendance, he looked very sleepy.
There were 50 fifth graders in the studio for the taping. They were all well-behaved and many asked for Clay autograph. In typical “teacher mode,” Clay had them line up and reminding them to go one at a time.
The show was exciting, but too short. Maybe Clay will visit GMA again and he will have a bit more time.
It’s hard to imagine how tired Clay must have been. Within the last 4 days of this visit, Clay performed his final show in Spamalot, had a CD signing at the Virgin Megastore and performed on TV. No wonder he arrived at the studio with a yawn.
The following videos are fan recordings of the GMA appearance. You can see and here “On My Way Here” and “Ashes.”
always love him
What great photos are in this mornings post! The 2 videos are excellent also. How hard it must have been for everyone to get it all together for an early morning show. This is the cd that is in the car player right now. It was nice to see Clay singing them. What would we do without all the fan videos. Thanks for posting musicfan. ❤️ UNCONDITIONAL love for you Clay. Thanks for all the work it took to make that cd.
I remember his visit to GMA on this day! Enjoy both songs, however OMC looked exhausted!
I'm sitting here with my coffee and bagel, listening to Clay and reading your article! Thanks CANN!
always love clay
