American Idol > Giving Clay Aiken His Due > Comments Page 4
Thank you for the wonderful article. He is certainly a class act.
Thank you for your apology. Clay deserves respect for who he is and what he stands for. He is a wonderful man who cares. We seen this 3 years ago. That's why his fans love him so much. There are no words to describe our love for him, we just do.
"I take being a role model very seriously. I know how much kids pay attention to so called celebrities." Clay Aiken
I was really appreciative of your article! I do not know what you said initially but it seems to have deserved a statement.
Those of us who have folllowed Clay realize what a rare man he is. He of course has a great talent but due to his upbringing he realizes how important it is to make a difference. That is what he has tried to do. It is sad that so many have used his celebrity to bring him down and make fun of him. When all he wants to do is good! It makes a sad mark on our society when a decent man wants to do right and we make fun of him!
I appreciate the article and hope that many others read and recognize him for who he is.
Not an angel but a nice guy with a talent who wants to make a difference. His fans will certainly try and help him succeed in both!
I, too, thank you. Clay does a lot of things right and I applaud him (literally and figuratively). He has a wonderful voice and he's also taught me to use my voice, not to sing, but for speaking up. It's nice to hear you speak up for him. Bravo!
Thank You for the apology and for posting some of the things Clay has done.
Not only does Clay have an incredible voice, but a big heart helping to make a difference in those less fortunate.
We, his fans know the type of man he is and we will always support him 100%.
Thanks so much for the wonderful article.
It shows that you really used a "fact checker" and that is rare these days in journalism.
Clay wanted to do something with his celebrity status and he is.
He has a wonderful heart to go along with that golden voice.
Thanks, for restoring a little faith in me, about our journalistic society. It is like a ray of light, emanating out of a very long, dark, tunnel.
Your apology to Mr.Aiken was a very classy thing to do.
Thanks, for taking the High Road!!
What an honorable step you took.
Clay deserved it thanks.
I am so proud to be his fan.
Thanks again for highlighting his heart.
Thank you for writing such a great article about Clay!
He DEFINATELTY deserves it, and it was very cool of you to write such a great piece! :)
Clay has shown by example that it is important to use your voice and make a difference. He makes a difference and encourages his fans to do the same. People from all over the country have worked many hours to raise money for causes close to Clay. Thank you for your great article!
Great article. I kinda wish that the response to "don't be so mean to Clay Aiken" wasn't automatically "Clay Aiken does charity work", though. Not that it isn't appreciated, and definitely APOLOGY ACCEPTED, but how about it's wrong to take cheap shots at someone simply because it's WRONG, and not because the guy you were making fun of went to Uganda last year.
I also realize that I don't know exactly what "jokes" were made at his expense, since I don't see any other articles about him here. I can guess what they were in reference to, because that's ALWAYS what "cheap shots" are in reference to...but if I'm wrong, then I apologize.
CLAY AIKEN IS NOT A CELEBRITY THAT TALKS THE TALK BUT, IS AFRAID TO WALK THE WALK! MANY STARS HAVE GONE OUT TO PROVE THEY ARE HELPING, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS, THAT THEY TAKE A FULL CAMERA CREW! THAT TO ME , MAKES IT CLEAR TO ME IT IS MORE FOR PUBLICITY THAN FEELING, CLAY WENT, NO CAMERAS ROLLING, NO INTERVEIWS WITH FAMOUS NEWS MEDIA, HE WENT ALONE AND STILL FIGHTS FOR THE LESS FORTUNATE, BECAUSE HE CARES, AND THAT MY FRIEND, IS THE PERSON HE SHOULD BE KNOWN FOR! IT'S ABOUT TIME HE IS SEEN IN A NEW LIGHT & RESPECTED INSTEAD OF BEING THE BUTT OF A JOKE! HE HAS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS HE STAYS TRUE TO, AND TRUE FRIENDS & FAMILY THAT ARE REAL, NOT,OUT TO GET A PIECE OF HIM! THEY CARE, WE THE FANS CARE, AND BY THE WAY HIS VOICE IS GREAT!!!!
Thanks for the information on Clay Aiken. Recently I read an interview about another singer/entertainer, who is a megastar. He told of his drug use (without being asked),.. and when I heard his new single, which is trash I had to shake my head. What in the world has happened to make that right, and being a decent human being.... and a great singer to boot the object of ridicule? Looking forward to Clay's new single, and hoping against hope that this time he will get the airplay he deserves.
Wow...I had no idea.
Good for him...traveling to Uganda and seeing what those kids endure just to survive takes a special kind of person.
Measure of a Man is what Clay is about.True Man with heart of gold.Thank you for your apology and acknowledging Clay’s charitable endeavors. He uses his wonderful voice in many ways to help others, especially children and encourages his fans to do the same.We all need to stick together for people who are doing good things for less
fortunate. Go Clay!!
Thank you so much. This is a long time coming....
I have always defended Clay to anyone who made a remark about him, but then I said "Ya know what???? WHAT-EVERRRR....I know the good things he's doing." I know his voice makes me feel like I'm floating in the air. What else could be better?
His fans knew he was something special from the moment he opened his mouth 3 years ago!!!!
2 words describe Clay best....CLASS ACT!!!!
This was a beautiful write-up. Thank you for the apology and follow-up. It's amazing how much Clay has given to so many worthwhile and necessary causes. His beautiful heart may even be bigger than his beautiful voice! His talent knows no bounds, nor does his belief in and desire to help where help is needed.
Thank you again.
Thankyou for acknowledging what Clay is all about...You see...his fans know this...and this is why we love this man so much....He is a class Act...Period.
This and more is why we love him!
Thank you so much for this. It's truly heartwarming to see someone step up and try to right a wrong.
I like that there is so much more that isn't trumpeted in the press....that he does under the radar, b/c he doesn't want the event to be about him. We end up hearing about it on the boards, but it is rarely reported.
I don't mind that he doesn't always get attention for all the good he does; it's also good to know that he doesn't seek it out.
But, to ignore it all and make him a punchline is a very different matter.
I hope more people will come to appreciate the good that he does.
You said it well,
You da man Clay! Isn't he just wonderful! Can't wait to here his new CD "A Thousand Different Ways" hopefully in a couple of months.
Many heartfelt thanks for reaching into your heart and discovering the realness that is 'Clay Aiken'.
Clay not only has the 'pipes of perfection', but the heart, soul and compassion for the needs of others !
He is such a ray of sunshine and a breath of fresh air in the music biz. Clay is a true testimony of God's love in action!
Thank you for your apology and acknowledging Clay's charitable endeavors. He uses his wonderful voice in many ways to help others, especially children and encourages his fans to do the same. He deserves this recognition and he truly shows the "Measure of a Man".
Thank you for giving Clay Aiken his due. I feel sorry for him because in spite of his goodness, others don't give him what he truly deserves. Why can’t they accept the fact that he stands for decency in the entertainment industry because he is an excellent performer with a wonderful glorious voice and an awesome role model. One reason I could think of is, he is a threat to others because of his swift stardom. His fans are embracing and supporting him faithfully because he deserves the best. We will never fall to the wrong track in following Clay, and his enemies will never succeed ruining his reputation. Clay will overcome all evil intentions against him, because we refuse to give up on his behalf. Go Clay!!!
Thanks so much for finally admitting that Clay is often the object of "cheap shots". He takes the "humor" of others so well, that it's no wonder hs is the object of so much of it!
There aren't many men like Clay in our world today. I'm so thankful for him.
Thanks to you for recognizing all of his many charitable endeavors. He truly deserves our recognition and respect.
