Clay Aiken – Tune Up Your Pipes!

Have you ever thought of taking a singing lesson?  If so, you are in luck.  The fabulous Clay Aiken could be your teacher for a day.  Somehow this idea stirs up all sorts of thoughts:

  1. WOW…A lesson with Clay Aiken
  2. Oh My…I would have to sing in front of Clay Aiken
  3. Could we have a “talking” lesson?
  4. This includes “shipping and handling”  One more, Oh My!!
  5. Wish I could win the lottery so I could afford a lesson with Clay Aiken!

All joking aside, what a great way for Clay to support his good friend, Tyra Banks.

“Tune up those pipes with the guidance of an artist who’s sold millions! Clay Aiken, singer, writer and actor, will instruct you on all things vocal in a one-on-one session.”

Be sure and click on the link to find out more about the singing lesson with Clay…and see the great picture too!


What do you think?

I didn’t know anything about the Tzone or the Flawsome Ball….so I thought it would be fun to find out about them.


Tyra Banks first established the TZONE in 1999 as a week long overnight camp experience for girls outside LA.  She wanted to inspire girls to believe in themselves and take control of their lives.  According to Tyra’s website:

TZONE’S mission was to reinforce positive values and encourage girls to resist social pressures through a fierce, self-esteem building adventure.

Tyra will be opening a permanent residence at the Lower Eastside Girls Club Center for the Community.  Through a mix of career development workshops, mentoring, experiential learning opportunities, financial literacy initiatives and community-wide events, hundreds of preteens and teens will build self-esteem and prepare for life as entrepreneurs and change-makers.

To help raise much needed funds for the new residence, Tyra will host a gala called the “Flawsome Ball” .  The star-studded night will include:

  • A performance by the Grammy Nominated singer, Drake.
  • A wonderful dinner by world renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson
  • The opportunity to give back to the community and help empower today’s young women.

The Flawsome Ball takes its name from a word coined by Banks that combines “flaws” and “awesome” to celebrate individuality. The Gala will be held Oct. 18.

I am in awe of the work that Tyra is doing for young girls.  It is wonderful to see celebrities step up and help.  Tyra is building self-esteem and working with hundreds of girls as they prepare for life.

 Are you going to bid on a singing lesson with Clay?
