Clay Aiken – A Busy Man

Today is December 31st, the last day of 2019. I thought it would be interesting to take a moment and choose some standout moments for Clay Aiken in 2019.

Looking back on the year and picking only a few events is not easy. Some of you will agree with my picks and some will wonder why I left out one of their special moments.  Hold on to those ideas and please share them with us in the New Year.  As always, your comments are appreciated.
