Clay Aiken – It Was Awesome!

What a celebration there was last week-end!

 Every bit of the 15th Anniversary Celebration was Awesome!!

There is so much that happened that I am finding it hard to write about the exciting week-end!  So…I will share what I can!  I wish every one of you could have been at this event!  So, here is my list of amazing happenings!

  1.  Meeting so many friends…yes, they are friends even if we see each other for the first time or once a year!  Thank you to so many of you that came up and introduced yourself to me.  You all were so kind!

Friends together at the Pre-party at Marbles!

2.  Saturday started out at the Gold/Platinum Appreciation Lunch at Pizza La Stella

The restaurant was filled with NIP supporters!

3.  At 6:15pm on Saturday – the Founder’s Champagne Reception

The Champions Gala…no pictures allowed, but wow, what memories.

I loved seeing the dance by Kevin Iannucci.  Besides his dance, Kevin was excited to meet Clay!

Daniel Svoboda was presented with The Foundation Award.

Congrats to Kim Sugino (dancermom2) and Brittany Ellis for receiving the Founder’s Award

OK…OK…Now about Clay.

He was in the blue shirt, gray pants, and shoes with pink shoe lashes.  He said he was glad he could fit in the outfit after 15 years!

He started the program with Kyrie…just like he did on tour!

Clay surrounded himself with 4 amazing musicians who really made the performance wonderful.

It was a fabulous concert and Clay continues to be an amazing singer and performer.  His singing was amazing and his sense of humor reached all of us.

It was announced both in the program and at the beginning of the show that NO taping, recording, or pictures were allowed.

It was so fun to see Jerome there, keeping an eye on Clay.  He is an amazing man!

The biggest laugh of the evening was when Ethel joined Clay on the stage as he sang When Doves Cry!  What a fun moment!

SueReu brought her camera along and shared this wonderful picture montage from the Pre-Party!

I look forward to hearing from Clay soon.

 I feel sure he has something exciting in his future!
