Clay Aiken -Holding Onto The Things You Love

Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love,

the things you are,

the things you never want to lose.

~From the television show The Wonder Years


I know that I posted this article before….but I like it and I think it is worth a second look.  I hope you do too.

A few years ago, I found a You Tube that really made me remember a fabulous day.  The following video is from the last concert of Clay Aiken’s Tried & True Tour.  It was held in San Francisco, California.  That’s my corner of the world!

The video reminded me of the fun dinner we had before the concert.  There were about 50 to 75 people who ate dinner in a private room on the 2nd floor of a old but cute diner.  It had an elevator, but it held one person at a time.  I think most riders crossed their fingers as they went through the door!

Do you recognize anyone??

I also remember all the Glow Sticks.  A group of my friends all got together and sent me boxes of Glow Sticks for the last concert.  I remember getting all the diners to help put them together and take lots of them to pass out to the audience so the theatre would…”GLOW”.  (Thanks, guys!!)

Of course, the most important part of the evening was the wonderful concert by Clay Aiken and his band.  I will never forget that concert.  It is a memory I want to remember forever!!

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do.  

It’s funny, it’s beautiful and it is a wonderful memory !

  1. I attended Clay's concert in the mid-west but it must have been extra-special in Calif. since it was the last one of the season. How clever of you all to have the glow sticks. I'm so glad that fans did record the concerts, because now that Clay isn't on the road each year, we can still enjoy watching him here on CANN.

  2. Thank you for the picture and the video. You are right. It is funny, beautiful and a great memory since Clay does not tour any more. I thank CANN for showing all the pictures and the videos. This song is one of my favorite songs that Clay has sung at his concerts. Thank you again.

  3. Such a beautiful song. It makes me sad, it's hard for me to listen to. Clay has a beautiful voice. I wish he would tour again. I miss him so much.
