Clay Aiken – The Beauty of The Season

A few years ago in December, the entertainment section of The Daily News published an article about Tyra Banks and Clay Aiken visiting the Broadway show, Come From Away.  It is short, but interesting.

Top model Tyra Banks and her mom, Carolyn London, joined crooner Clay Aiken for a night on Broadway. The unlikely trio took in a Wednesday night performance of “Come From Away” at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, which was probably Aiken’s idea. Aiken, who has seen the show three times, walked Banks and London backstage after it was over and introduced them to the entire cast.

A theater insider says that Banks was so moved by a number in the show in which cast members kiss a fish that she asked if she could “kiss the cod.” The show is set in Newfoundland, where that particular fish is significant to the culture.

“Stage management brought out the prop fish, which has been kissed by celebrities from Hillary Clinton to Tina Fey, and Tyra kissed it before triumphantly raising it over her head,” we’re told.

No one sings Christmas Carols better than Clay Aiken.  Somehow, his voice just soars when he sings the beautiful songs of the season. His album, “Merry Christmas With Love” set a record for 1st week sales of a holiday album with sales of 270,010.  When Clay released his Holiday EP, “All Is Well” in 2006, he added four more beautiful songs to his library of recorded Christmas Carols.

Clay included one of the most loved traditional Christmas Carols, “Oh, Holy Night,” on his album. This carol has been named one of the most beautiful of all Christmas Carols, with excellent lyrics and a beautiful melody. This song received its premier at the midnight mass on Christmas Eve 1847.

No one sings this beautiful carol better than Clay Aiken!!

  1. That video was the ultimate glorious Christmas song – no one can out sing Clay. SueReu and Clay videos deserve some kind of award – no body does it better!
    I need to go back and listen and watch that again. Thanks to all that helped with it.
    Clay, Tyra, and her Mom must have really liked the Broadway Show!
