Clay Aiken – His Name is Everywhere!

I started Wednesday by looking up “Birthday Quotes.”  The following quote by John Oates caught my eye.  You remember John, don’t you?  He is best known as half of the rock duo Hall & Oates.  John’s quote reminded me of another very talented entertainer.

If you look over the years, the styles have changed – the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it’s really the same.

WRAL mention

On the morning show with Bill and Linda, they talked about Clay and his birthday.  Bill said, Clay is a whopping 33 years old today, Can you believe?”  After some talk they played “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.  They continued with their memories of Clay after the song.  It was a great segment.

From Norman Byrd at the Myrtle Beach Examiner:

Season 2 runner-up Clay Aiken released a collection of Christmas songs that to date has more sold more than three times all other “American Idol” alumni holiday albums combined. With over 1.416 million copies sold, Merry Christmas With Love has sold more than five times the number of albums of his closest colleague, Archuleta (246,000 to date).

This site had a slide show of birthdays.  Clay is #6


American Idol Website:

Today is World Aids Day

World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.

This is a day when I thank organizations like Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids.  It is an easy organization to support.  They enlist the entire Broadway community in the fundraising for fighting aids  and educating people  about aids…one of their mottos is:  What We Do Together Makes A Difference!
