Trivia from Pop Culture Trivia

Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard chose the 1984 popular song, Footloose to perform in the 80’s celebration of their Timeless Tour.  It was a big hit to the audiences when the stage turned into a fun party, filled with excitement, fun, dancing and, of course, great music.

The song, Footloose was nominated for an Academy Award For Best Music – Original Song…and a Golden Globe in the same category.

I hope you enjoy the video of Clay and Ruben performing…Footloose!

Another performance to make you smile!!!
