Clay Aiken – Enjoying His Friends!

You are Braver than you believe, stronger than you seem,

and smarter than you think! ~ Christopher Robin


For many of us, today is Monday and it’s back to work after a fun holiday season!  Does that mean I have to get up early?

Clay Aiken was busy on Sunday.  He sent out a tweet:

🤞🏻🤞🏻 The Hill: Sherrod Brown to make 2020 decision ‘within the next two months,’ wife says | TheHill.

OK, Clay…I’ll check out Mr. Brown.  I know it’s important…but I would love to read a tweet about you and singing, acting, traveling..??..


Clay was in New York on Sunday.  He attended the final show of the Broadway Production of Once On This Island.  This Tony Award winning show closed after 29 previews and 458 performances.

Clay knew many of the cast members but knew three of them well.  His good friend, Merle Dandridge was in the original cast.  When she started working on her TV show, she was replaced by Tamyra Gray.  Merle was the Lady of the Lake in Spamalot with Clay and Tamyra Gray was in Season 1 of American Idol.

The following pictures were found on Twitter.

Phillip Boykin – Was one of the major actors in the shows original cast.

Dalen Badway – A Broadway Producer

Clay is chatting with Lea Salonga

I hope Clay enjoyed the show!


I found a video on YouTube that I thought was fun to see.  It is pretty old…it is from the rewind of AI 2 – Top 11.  It was Movie Night.  I like the Rewind shows because Clay is the narrator of the show.  I hope you enjoy this video!!

So…what do you think?

  1. I remember watching this night of AI and also the Rewind Series – but absolutely loved
    Gladys Knight's comments to Clay – remember them to this very day! Liked Charles Grigsby even if he was sent home – lived very near where we live – Oberlin, Ohio and was very happy he did as well as he did!

    Thanks for this video, Musicfan – a lot of good memories! Loved that Clay got to do the
    Rewind Series! Watched it all.

  2. I love watching American Idol with OMC, enjoying his performances and knowing from then on, I will be a fan and still am today! Thank you, CANN!

  3. I taped all of the AI-2 rewind programs that were on TV years ago. How am I ever going to watch them now that tapes are 'old school'?

  4. Thank you Musicfan for the video. I like the song. I am glad everyone like the song too. I will always be a fan.

    • You could be correct, but I was told that Clay was at the closing performance of the show. I assumed that was the performance on Sunday. Most important is that he was there and seemed to be having a good time.

  5. ialso loved omc on americian idol and iloved his performances on the show and also knowing them from then on I will still be a fan of omc and continue to be a fan of omc and still am today for as long as ilive
