Nice apology and well-written article.

A nice followup might be to go to a live Clay Aiken performance on his next tour. There is nothing like hearing that voice live.

You showed real class in your apology and by setting things right with your article on Clay's charitable endeavors. There is alot more to the man Clay Aiken than just a beautiful voice.

I am glad you finally showcased his endeavors. One of his haters posted that he does this for publicity. That is so far from the truth. He does events that his fans do not find out he did till much later. No publicist there, no media there. Many celebrities just attach their name to a charity. Clay becomes actively involved. Thank you again.

Thanks for recognizing Clay Aiken for the work he would like to be remembered for, when all is said and done.

It's one thing to be a successful singer and a rich man, it's another thing to put the misfortunes of others before your own interests, as Clay does.

He is so much the best thing to EVER come out of American Idol, bar none.

Clay Aiken is GOD of American Idol. He is best singer and artist from that show. He is one of the best singers to ever walk into this world and on our planet. I love this guy so much!

I never have understood why members of Am. Idol (the show) and others in the media have dissed Clay at every opportunity they had. If Clay had not accomplished anything with his celebrity, that would be a different story. But quite the contrary. There is so much more to the man, Clay Aiken, than just a singer and should cause pride in all those who "discovered" him. The world is turning upside down!

Thanks for the apology. Now if others would follow your lead it might be a "Perfect Day!"

I too would like to thank you for your apology. I didn't read your original article but I'm guessing you quickly felt the wrath of scorned claymates in response. We take negative comments about Clay to heart. The greatness of Clay has unfolded before us over the past three years, not because he throws it in our faces, but because from the very beginning he drew us in with his voice and charisma. From then on, we have eagerly followed (or tried to follow) his every move. Clay is an amazing talent and an even more amazing human being.

It is quite frustrating when ignorant people make statements about things with which they are uneducated. That has always been my pet peave and it's continually highlighted when it comes to the media reporting about Clay. Nonetheless, it is commendable that you realized the err of your ways and apologized. For that, I thank you!

Clay Aiken is so deserving of your apology, as well as his fans, and I for one thank you. Being an American Idol is more than being able to sing or have a pretty face and Clay has proven that beyond everyone's expectations. Mr. Aiken is an exceptional human being who has made not only our country proud, but also his fans around the world. It's about time his accomplishments were recognized and applauded.

Thank you for your apology - it is appreciated. It's very easy to take cheap shots at people who don't defend themselves - not quite so easy to apologise!

Your article does a good job of spotlighting one of the many reasons why Clay is so beloved by his fans. Aside from his musical talent, he is a remarkable man, and an inpsiring humanitarian.

When he said on American Idol that he wanted to use his celebrity in a postive wasy and make a difference it wasn't just words - he meant it!
