Clay Aiken – He’s Animated!!

During the summer of 2010, Clay Aiken was the guest star on Disney’s Phineas and Ferb. He sang a duet with the legendary recording artist Chaka Khan. The one hour episode, “Summer Belongs to You”, premiered on August 2, on DisneyXD and then again on August 6 on the Disney Channel.

Phineas and Ferb is known for its musical numbers, which have appeared in every episode since the first-season. The show’s creators write and record each number, and vary musical tempo depending on each song’s dramatic use. The music has gotten the series two Emmy nods for songwriting in 2008.

Clay’s song for Disney is I Believe We Can. The duet was part of an episode of titled Summer Belongs To You. Walt Disney Records released the song on iTunes and other online retailers as a part of a digital album comprised of music from the entire TV series.

The episode and Clay’s visit got a great deal of publicity from Disney and news about the show and song was on most of the mainstream entertainment site. The following article was published at the newsobserver.com…

Clay Aiken gets animated with “Phineas & Ferb”

You could argue that Clay Aiken has always been animated. Now he really is!

The singer appears on a special one-hour episode of the clever cartoon “Phineas & Ferb,” (Disney Channel, tonight at 8 & 11) singing a duet with Chaka Khan called “I Believe We Can.”

“Phineas & Ferb” is the story of two stepbrothers perpetually on summer vacation, who always embark on some grand project. Their sister Candace watches on angrily, but is never able to get their mom to catch them in the act. The two also have a platypus named Perry, a secret agent for an all-animal government organization that primarily takes on Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, an evil scientist.

It sounds wacky, but trust me, it works.

Clay’s episode is about the brothers’ decision to travel around the world in a day. Clay and Chaka, through their song, offer encouragement.

I do remember waiting to see this show. I had not seen any of the series before, but I certainly enjoyed animated Clay Aiken.
