Do You Know?
When did Christmas become an official holiday in the U.S.
In 2003, Clay Aiken was the featured performer for the The Very Merry Christmas Parade at Walt Disney World. It was the 20th anniversary of the Christmas Day Parade. Clay opened the parade singing “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” and ended the parade with an exciting performance of ” Joy To The World” and “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.”
I remember reading that on the day Clay taped this event, he was fighting a cough and cold. You certainly could not tell by his enthusiastic performance and singing.
There are many wonderful pictures that came out of Clays performance at Walt Disney World.
It looks like Clay was having a great time even though he was not feeling well.
One of Clay’s fans, beedawn, found a great video about this performance in Walt Disney World.
The video is showing some backstage shots…and some “do overs”. It is lots of fun to see!
Thanks, beedawn for sharing!
The other two videos are great too.
They show the opening and the closing of the parade
(no do-overs needed)
Have you ever been to Disney World or Disneyland during the holidays?
Thank you so much Beedawn and CANN for sharing thus festive video of Clay performances
CANN sure has put me in the Christmas spirit with these videos. I've never experienced the Xmas parade at Disney World, but my son was in his high school band the year they played in the parade. This year, the boy next door will be going with his high school band to march in the parade. Christmas & Clay are a wonderful team.
Thank you for the pictures and the 3 videos.Thank you to Beedawn for sharing. I have never been to Disney during Christmas. I do know know about the do-overs. Thank you again.
