To Clay Aiken…
CANN wishes you a day filled with family, friends, laughter and love.
May every candle on your cake turn into a wish come true!
Happy birthday to you!
The audience in Reading, PA was ready to party with Clay in 2005. The audience had paper birthday hats, glow sticks and even gave Clay a huge “pointy hat” that was signed by some fans. It’s always fun to see Clay actually wear the birthday hat.
On November 30, 2004, Clay Aiken was part of the star-studded hour-long special on NBC celebrating the lighting the world’s most famous tree at Rockefeller Center.
Co-hosts for the evening were Al Roker and Nancy O’Dell. Olympic Gold Medalist Sarah Hughes skated to Vanessa Williams who sang “Silver and Gold.”
Besides Clay, the musical lineup for the special included performances by Hilary Duff, Kenny Chesney, Tony Bennett, Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, Chris Isaak, Michael Buble, Vanessa Williams, and The Radio City Rockettes. Chicago was the special house band for national telecasts.
Clay was dressed for cold weather in an overcoat, striped scarf and a black hat. Clay sang “Winter Wonderland” during the National broadcast, and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing/O Come All Ye Faithful” during the earlier hour broadcast that was only shown in New York.
At the beginning of Clay’s live segment during the National Broadcast, the audience sang “Happy Birthday” to Clay, as it was his 26th birthday. Towards the end of the show, Clay joined the line of guests, as they closed the show by singing the song, “Let It Snow.”

Have you ever seen the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree in person?
I hope you will leave a birthday greeting to Clay!!
