American Idol > Giving Clay Aiken His Due > Comments Page 3
Thank you so much for listing all the wonderful achievements made by Clay in the last 3 years. When he said he wanted to make a difference back on AI2, he really meant it. He is such a giving person, and I so appreciate you writing an article about this. Clay's voice is gorgeous, his talent is amazing, but his charitable works are even moreso. I determined to support him 3 years ago, and now I have even more reasons to continue my support.
Thank you for the apology and article! I have been a fan of Clay since the beginning of AI2 and I will always be. There are not many young men like him in the world today - much less in the music industry. I have seen the difference that he has made in the lives of many of his fans and for kids around the world. There is so much to this man other than the AMAZING voice that touches my heart every time I hear it and that I can listen to over and over again. I support Clay 100%
Apology accepted. I hope others look into the total man that is Clay Aiken and see what his fans have seen all along, a talented, compassionate, giving human being. How can anyone not love this man?
I'm eagerly awaiting the release of his next CD, "A Thousand Different Ways," this fall and to see him on tour again. Clay rocks!
Thank you so much for that very complete and wonderful article explaining many of the reasons Clay Aiken has those legions of fans who love him so. Besides his glorious voice, fantastic personality and charm, Clay is a wonderful role model for our children and grandchildren. He deserves all the praise the media can give. May you continue to give Clay the respect he so deserves.
Again, thank you for your apology.
Apology accepted and thank you for the nice article about his humanitarian accomplishments to date. Clay is truly an extraordinary and gifted young man and one that everyone should proudly respect. I for one am a very Supportive and Avid fan not only for his incredible vocal talents and stage presence, but most importantly because he opens his heart to love, and if you are lucky enough to be touched by that, you have been blessed in so many ways.
Thank you so much for helping to open the eyes of those who don't already know what Clay Aiken is about, what his many fans have known all along. Clay is an amazing talent but, more importantly, he is an amazing man and I am proud to call myself a fan.
Your apology is accepted and I appreciate the fact that you did it with such a wonderful article on Clay. He is truly a wonderful human being who has done so much for so many in such a very short time. He deserves the respect from the media. His fans have always known what a genrous and kind human being he is and I will always be a fan! His new CD is going to be awesome!
clay is a very special person and to him everyone else is special too.thank you for recognizing what his fans always knew.
Thanks for your wonderful article. Clay fans have long understood this wonderful man and it's nice when someone new finally "gets it".
Thanks for giving yourself to us in "A THOUSAND DIFFERNT WAYS" through you I've become a much better human being. I love you for you and not some celebrity. You may not realize this but since I've joined the BAF I've gotten to know many upon many supportive fans of yours. I've also been to concerts of yours and been to your first CD Release Party for MOAM in the fall of 2003, in Columbus Ohio.
I just can't praise you enough Clay for all the hard work and dedication you deserve. I too, have had some difficult times in my life being handicapped but honestly...I've had some pretty special memories in my life time too. Plan to have many more thanks to Clay Aiken!
Health, Happiness and Hope be yours Clay!
God Bless You Always ~
Thank you so much for your apology. It is graciously accepted. It is so hard, as Clay's loving fan, to hear and read all the negative remarks that are made about him. It hurts that he is belittled for no good reason. I love him and who he is so much that it feels just like someone has ridiculed my child when they ridicule Clay Aiken. He is so many things to me, but first and formost he is respected by me. I will be his loyal fan til I die. I can't wait to get his new CD in my hands, see him on TV and magazines. My purse is ready for it all. I will probably never get to see him up close or meet him, but I want to make him rich. He deserves to be rich and loved more than any celebrity ever. I could never in a lifetime give him back what he has given me in 3 years!!!
Maybe if more people lived by the same standards of Clay the world would be a better place. That standard is also to not speak about others unkindly. So called "jokes" can be so negative and apoligizing and saying something positive is a good start. Then maybe we can know with acertainy that things said about us don't have a real target on our backs. Clay knows this and thats why nothing will has him talking back, he's better than all that. Thanks for proving we all can!
I'll join others in the Thanks, however did not read your original article. Your apology did not even cover half of the things Clay does for his fans and a lot of the less fortunate. He does not toot his own horn. We as fans have followed his every move for 3 years and know he is a man of his word who is all and more of what everyone in other replys have said. He wants to be a positive example and he is. There are not enough good expletives to describe him. I stand behind him 100% unconditionally.
Clay is truly a positive role model in a time where negative role models dominate the media. Clay said he did not want to be a useless celebrity and his tireless work and generous spirit will never let him be useless. Clay deserves to be respected and admired for not only his talent but for the desire to speak for those who traditionally have not had a voice. Bravo! Clay
Thank you for the apology and comments. Clay does not expect to be in the limelight for something we should all be doing. But he is truly the "American Idol" by setting the example. I volunteer to help with his causes as often as I can. Not only does he shine with his music but from his heart as well. It seems that a lot of media is trying to pull him down but they will find out that goodness prevails and Clay will be visibile for a long time. American Idol has found a true American Idol in Clay.
Thank you for acknowledging some of the contributions Clay has made that actually make the world a better place, but it's a little like the tip of the iceberg. The visibility you give points to a huge foundation of other caring, inclusive, inspirational and humanistic acts which, to him, are as easy as saying hello and goodbye. He is a very caring man. And, on top of all that, he has a voice that touches the very core of my being and brings tremendous joy. He also is a fabulous entertainer and endlessly fascinating.
Thanks for the wonderful apology and write-up on Clay. He is truly a remarkable human and we are so fortunate to have him on this earth. Can't wait for his new CD and hope for enormous sales to prove to him that we have waited for him with much anticipation and will always be his devoted fans.
Thank you for posting Clay's efforts.I'm sure he's only just begun and that he has done and given a great deal more than people know. As Claymates always say, "We came for the voice and stayed for the man. A true measure of a man and the true American Idol."
Greatly appreciated. Thank you.
We came for the voice and stayed for the man! Clay Aiken is one of the most loved and talented people I have ever seen. People say the clay fans are "rabib" fans. No, we are just loyal and mabey now people will see the man we support for what he is. A wondereful loving human being.
with a God given voice!!! I am Sooo proud to be a Claymate! God bless you Clay we will support you all the way. And thank you for the apology. Greatly appreciated. Elaine
When is the media ever going to give due to the entertainers (Clay especially) that try to create a positive role model for our youth.
Many of our children are becoming jaded and seem to be following a path of destruction. They have been dragged down by the Pied Piper of drugs, violence and just bad behavior of many of today's so called stars. And, the media is right there to glorify it.
Thank you for the apology and setting an example. I hope more media will do the same to those artists that are just trying to set a good example. They need more and more media attention.

Clay: talented, giving, PRICELESS
Thanks for the article.
Thank you for your apology to Clay Aiken and his fans. It takes a big person to have the integrity to admit they are wrong and to apologize.
Even though I didn't read your article, your "humor" must have been very offensive for you to have felt the need to back track.
This special young man does not deserve that kind of treatment from anyone. He deserves much respect for the good man that he is.
Please.. I want you to go to a Clay concert someday soon. His band is out of this world! Did you know he has the famous guitar player, Andy Abad, who has toured with Marc Anthony and other great ones?
There's laughter, (and sometimes tears), snarky comments, enthusiastic singing, cute dancing... and that's just the audience, much less Clay and his truly world-class backup singers and band. You'll say to yourself "All this talent, and he's a nice guy too?"
A Clay concert is just a fun and beautiful night. Everyone's buzzing with expectations before the concert, and buzzing on the way out about the stage set, or the fabulous wardrobes, or his dance moves, or a new song he tried out, or his comedic timing. With Clay, every tour is completely different.
Thank you for putting this information on your site. Here in New Zealand, Clay is unknown but his NZ fans are so proud of what he does and who he is. It's good to see something positive in the media about Clay Aiken.
