Clay Aiken – A Silly Exchange

If you have been on-line at all during the last 2 days, you are most likely aware that Clay Aiken has been the focus of some “interesting” news.

On Tuesday evening, Clay tweeted a snarky comment about what he and his brother were doing while watching the Republican National Convention.  Clay didn’t say anything different than what many other people have said.  However, the country star, John Rich didn’t read it correctly and slammed Clay to his many twitter fans, calling Clay a racist!  As you can imagine, it was snowball time!!

I don’t know John Rich very well, but it was an uncalled for remark.  And, it does seem odd that he would call out Clay when so many other celebrities have said the same thing.  And, why he allows his fans to write hateful comments to Clay and his fans is a bit odd.  John owes Clay an apology, but he also needs to tell his fans to stop tweeting hateful things.

On the last check of Google search, there are about 50 articles about the “twitter feud.”  Good grief!  You would think there was nothing else to talk about.

To read the details of the event, you can read one of the articles here.  

I am sad that Clay has to go through this.  Clay…use your voice and don’t let anyone ever get you down!

Three more Joyful Noise Christmas concerts were announced on Wednesday.  For details on the date and place, please see the previous post.

Erica Bustamante,  from NBC17 in the Raleigh/Durham area wrote a nice article about Clay’s concert at the Durham Performing Arts Center.

Aiken is bringing his Christmas special, Joyful Noise Tour, to the DPAC on November 29. Accompanied by an orchestra, Clay Aiken will perform holiday classics.

“Clay Aiken has been to DPAC many times, visiting backstage with friends that come through in concert or with our big Broadway shows. It’s been a goal to have him onstage and this new Christmas show was the perfect opportunity. Aiken is one of our most requested artists and DPAC is the perfect setting to start the holidays with this special concert,” said Bob Klaus, GM for DPAC.

Tickets for the show go on sale Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased online, at the DPAC Ticket Center, or through Ticketmaster.

Aiken is known to sell out local venues, so if you want to purchase tickets ahead of the general public, you can join Friends of DPAC. Members get to purchase tickets to shows a day before the general public. For more information, click here.
