Clay Aiken felt that he could almost always count on Good Morning America to support his career.  This is one show that Clay has visited many times, both as a musical guest and an interesting celebrity.

On May 7, 2008, Clay visited GMA one more time.  Clay sang On My Way Here and Ashes and also a “bump”…..a short portion of Invisible to get the crowd going.

Clay Aiken fans lined up early to make it into the studio to see the taping in person.  In the wee hours of the morning, the crowd spotted the band arriving along with Mary, Quiana and Angela.  Clay arrived in a green hoodie and, according to the fans in attendance, he looked very sleepy.

There were 50 fifth graders in the studio for the taping.  They were all well-behaved and many asked for Clay autograph.  In typical “teacher mode,” Clay had them line up and reminding them to go one at a time.

The show was exciting, but too short.  Maybe  Clay will visit GMA again and he will have a bit more time.

It’s hard to imagine how tired Clay must have been.  Within the last 4 days of this visit, Clay performed his final show in Spamalot, had a CD signing  at the Virgin Megastore and performed on TV.  No wonder he arrived at the studio with a yawn.

The following video is a fan recordings of the GMA appearance.  You can see and hear “Ashes.”

  1. Watched all of the GMA programs when Clay was a guest of the show. It was an exciting time for Clay and all of his fans. Loved the video of Ashes. What a great time for the 50 fifth graders!!! Clay had to be full of energy for those early years. Loved all of the photos even the “sleepy Clay” one!

  2. Thank you for all the pictures and the video. I like the pictures. The video and the song are great. I remember this show. Fifty students is a lot of 5th graders. Thank you CANN. Have a great Labor Day.

  3. I was there in person with my niece. We were there from midnight. We arrived by bus together with South Jersey Clay fans. Precious memories!

  4. Those were the days when we could count on seeing Clay on many TV programs. He must have been so tired that morning, but he still gave his all to perform for his fans. Hope he is enjoying the Labor Day weekend today.
