American Idol > Giving Clay Aiken His Due > Comments Page 5
Thank you for the nice article. We, his fans, have known this all along. We've learned a lot about Mr Aiken over the past 3 years. It all started with the VOICE and that wonderful Southern Charm, but we've also learned that he is so much more than a great entertainer. His humanitarian efforts and the fact that he is not afraid to show his deep faith makes him even more endearing. He certainly deserves much respect and I think that in the years to come, when more and more people get to "know" him, he will get the love and respect he so richly deserves. Until then, his fans lovingly support him 100% and always will.
Clay aiken stands tall and have been doing charitable work forever. People only ridicule themselves when they try to take cheap shot at him. His fans knows what he is all about and he knows who he is. That's why he still have the biggest fan base of AI.
You know, joan (see above post) said that Clay has put up with cheap shots from all over the media. I've always wondered what it is about him that makes him an easy target. Is it because he's just a nice guy who doesn't fit the celebrity mould? Is it because he endeavours to actually make a difference in the world? Is it simply because he totally ignores the cheap shots and the snide remarks aimed at him?
Well, whatever it is - it's about time those cheap shots stopped. Thank you for admitting that you've treated Clay and his fans less than fairly in the past and apologised. It's much appreciated.
And thank you for highlighting several of the things Clay has done in an attempt to make the world a better place. There's more to come from him yet. Much more - and I think a lot of people will be surprised.
Thank you for printing about the differene Clay is making, he challenges us all to make a difference and use our voice.
We should have more articles like this to challenge us all to make a difference, and we can all make it a better world.
Clay we did come for the voice but we stay for the Man.
"At last" - the old Etta James song - an apology for "dissin'" Clay & written acknowledgement of Clay Aiken's myriad charitable endeavors. Clay may not be perfect but he's in there tryig to make a positive difference and his record is pretty impressive for someone so new to celbrity. Thanks for taking the time to get the facts (there's more good stuff even than you reported) and thank you for the apology. Now stand back, y'all, when his new CD breaks and you'll see what a winner he is!
thank you so much for your apologies....
as claymates, we thank you from the bottom of
our hearts....you see....we came for the voice, first....but we stay for the man....clay always said that he wanted to make a difference.....it's not "how" he makes it...just as long as he does.....your article clearly shows that clay is making a difference..in A Thousand Different Ways....
thank you again...judy
We knew this all along. Thanks for letting others know.
Too bad Clay's involvement with these charities have only been manufactured public relations stunts to garner him good publicity. This is evidenced by publicly disclosable documents of Aiken's own charity that show that Clay has never even donated $5,000 or more to his own charity (The Bubel/Aiken Foundation).
Clay seems to be an easy target, but it's a cheap shot. He stands tall in the face of it all. He truly is a man. A man of conviction that our world can be a better place for all children and all people. Thank you for recognizing this fact and helping to spread the word.
Thanks so much for letting more people know about this truly outstanding human being. His fans have known all along what it is about him we love. It's not only the incredible voice and charisma, but the love he shows to those less fortunate. Thank you again.
It is nice to see something/someone hat is associated with American Idol to give good reviews to Clay Aiken’s work not only in his own foundation but with other groups as well. American Idol (as a group) has snubbed Clay when they could have pointed out what this talented man has been giving back. This can only enhance American Idol's reputation as it continues forward. That Clay chose to distance himself from AI can only be described self defense. That this site apologized shows that perhaps there is some class still somewhere in the American Idol machine.
Thank you for apologizing!!
Wow, I am stunned! You at AI Worship, are a class act for your statement and this story. I am impressed! The write up brought me to tears! Thank you so much!
What a man and what a role model he is. Thanks for sharing some of the things that Clay has been involved with. Nice to hear that he is out "making a difference".
Thanks for a good look at Clay's charitable works. He has frequently reminded his fans to "use your voice" and he follows his own advice! I'm looking forward to hearing his voice on his new CD out this fall.
I wasn't aware Clay had been involved in so much. Thanks for the info.
Thank You for showing the "other side" of Clay that his fans find just as extraordinary as his unlimited, amazing talent!
Thank you for showcasing Clay Aiken's charitable endeavors as they are numerous and varied. He is truly more than just an incredible singing voice and entertainer-he is also a tremendous and giving human being who just wants to make a difference in the world.
