Clay Aiken – Opening The Eyes Of The World

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

~ Confucius

Clay Aiken was introduced to the national stage in 2003, but long before that time, he was an active advocate for the rights of children.

It is always wonderful to see the amazing pictures of Clay with children throughout the world. His trips with UNICEF opened the eyes of the world to his advocacy for children. But it is just as exciting to learn about his work with children before the eyes of the world were watching.

So…Please check out the following ¬†pictures of Clay Aiken, standing with and for children everywhere!

Clay was a counselor at Y-Camp for many years.

The following are quotes from Clay’s book, Learning To Sing..Hearing The Music in Your Life

“I’m often asked what I would do to change the world if I had the power to do anything.

In my ideal world, no child would suffer. Charitable instincts would prevail. Those who could give, would give. There would be global acceptance of all different types of people. “

Another quote:

“There are so many kids in this world who could use another person looking out for them. Someone who will help them to discover their strengths and rise above their weaknesses. Someone who offers another opinion of their worth.

Why not me?”

“Kids without disabilities learn a lot from kids with disabilities. They are so many things that are so much bigger than what to wear each day.

I don’t feel sorry for children with disabilities. I feel excited for them for the opportunities that they have.


I could post pages of wonderful quotes and pictures.
