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.

  1. Clay has a God-given voice to sing but he also has a God-given gift to love children. He has a loving heart for all. Thank you for shining a light on those gifts. This needs attention
    more than how handsome he is or what color hair or the style it is. I love all of these things about him, too, but the love he shows far out weighs anything else!

    Wishing everyone a great holiday weekend!

  2. Thank you for all the pictures of Clay to show how big of a heart he has. I know he has a great voice. The gift he has to work with children is another part of him that makes him a great person. I know the work that he does is great since I have a disability and I know he is trying to help people that need it. Thank you CANN. Have a great Labor Day.
