Clay Aiken – A Beautiful Message

In April of 2016, Clay Aiken left a lovely message on his Facebook page:

You know what? It’s taken me 14 years to realize it… I DID WIN! No final 2 from ‪#‎AmericanIdol‬ ever became nor stayed as close as my winner and I. @realrubenstuddard has been more than a co-worker & more than a friend… he’s been a true brother. No ‪#‎idol‬ finalist have ever won in the way we have. Never mind the albums and tours. Never mind the platform and exposure. American Idol gave me one of my greatest friends ever. And for that, I am truly grateful. ‪#‎idolfinale‬ ‪#‎idolfarewell‬ ‪#‎losangeles‬ ‪#‎dolbytheatre‬

I thought the following video by Sue Rue says a lot about friendship!!

“A strong friendship doesn’t need daily conversation or being together.

As long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends never part.”
