American Idol > A Clay Aiken Christmas: Carols & Comedy > Comments Page 2
Thank you SO much for the wonderful review.
Clay will have his fans following him to Europe and any Eastern country on the globe if need be! His incredible talent, kindness, and fabulous personality are what make Clay Our Man Forever.

What's left to say? Thanks, Clay, for all you give!
Thanks so much for the great article on OMC or "Our Man Clay" as we Claymates call him. I was fortunate enough to see Clay at Williamsport after traveling 5 hours by car to get there. I am so glad that you "get it"!!! Clay not only sings but performs stand-up comedy during the shows and has a wit about him that is sharp as a tack. He also always stresses to his audience to give to others in need. His unselfishness (which is very uncommon in this business unless a photo-op is involved) has been shown to us many times by his deeds such as running to an ambulance that brought a fan to Wolftrap and going into the ambulance and visiting personally with the fan who was dying of cancer. She has since passed away and we only learned about it from her sister who told us--no flashbulbs, no cameras, no photo-op--just Clay doing what Clay does on a regular bases--showing kindness and caring to his VERY loyal fans who will travel great distances just to see him. We will follow his tours fore
Thanks for a great article on an entertainer who is so deserving of the praise. It's refreshing to read an article by someone who "gets it." Sadly, the world is full of people who don't have a clue what this young man is all about. For those of us who DO know, he never ceases to amaze and thrill us. He always keeps it fresh and new. Clay has a voice that reaches to the stars and his sense of humor is amazing, and getting sharper all the time. I'm so glad so many "first-timers" were able to see this Christmas show because it only takes once and you're hooked!
I was elated to be at the Englewood concert and had front row CENTER. My husband and myself were lucky enough to be called on by Clay during his banter. He asked if my husband was dragged to the concert and how many we attended and how long we were married. He sang TCS to us. THOSE EYES........... OMG. I gave him a box of Mac and Cheese and after DSIAFCD he came back and scooped it up and ran off stage. It is an will be the most memorable night of my life. My husband said about a week later that Clay's Christmas CD is the only one he really enjoys. Now there is a Clayvert.
Great article - thank you. I feel blessed to have been able to attend five of these Christmas concerts and each one was a beautiful Christmas gift. Looking forward to many more concerts in 2007.
Great article, thank you!! Ha, Clay didn't come West, either, so we did just what you advise -- packed our bags, checked our boarding passes, and hopped a r/t from LAX to NY! Saw him at Tile Center, and couldn't believe that while gripping the stool, his eyes sometimes rolling back in his head, he gave us one of his best performances of the tour -- even a stunningly beautiful and powerful AIW!! And then had to be helped off the stage... WOW!! And he didn't hold back on the banter, either, as witty as ever and we had a wonderful time!! Then we went to West Point, and were sorry we had to get back before Red Bank...
I've been lucky enough to see Clay more than once on each of his several tours -- he never disappoints; his concerts are always different, always fun, always filled with marvelous music, going to the busses for a handtouch and "thank you for coming" has become a ritual, and I've nowhere near had enough!
Bravo to a writer who 'gets it' about why thousands of peopel love Clay Aiken. I've gone to two concerts in this Christmas Symphony series and if possible would have gone to more. As this writer points out Clay's voice is magnificent, his connection with his audience is personal and you feel that he is singing to you. His charible work is from his heart and is
touching all of us. I saw one concert in NJ where he was well and then the one in LI, NY when he first started to get sick and he gave his all both times.
I can't wait to see Clay again soon. It will then be my 14th concert.
I was at the concert at the Tilles Center on Long Island. That was the night he had to sit on the stool because he was feeling dizzy from the ear infection. He gave a wonderful concert, was funny and sang better than I had ever heard. I was proud to be a fan. But also concerned, because he really did have to hold on to the stool a lot of the time, and needed assistance on and off the stage. But, through all that he was magnificent, never missed a beat. I will definately see him in concert again if he comes to long island. And, he's VERY easy to look at too. :-)
I have not seen Clay in any concert, as I am a new fan seeing him from some of the videos
that his loyal fan has put in the internet, to whom I am grateful, I am amazed at how witty, quick and charming Clay is,and not to be forgotten his angelic voice that seems to come from another realm. I will make sure I see him in his Christmas concert next year whereever it is . I am from Los Angeles and cannot wait to see his concert of ATDW
Thanks for the article. You did a great job capturing the essence of Clay
I was one of the lucky ones,.. I was able attend a Clay Christmas concert this year. I had always loved Clay's voice, but seeing that he was performing alone, with a symphony orchestra I thought perhaps it would be a liitle too formal and stiff. Several of my co-workers went to the concert also, and some old friends. We were absolutely astounded!... We were mezmorized by his voice, yes -- but we laughed so hard at the unexpectedness of his wit! Truly the interaction he has with his audience is something that I have never before witnessed from any other entertainer at any other concert. What a wonderful night!... As one of my friends who had not been that familiar with Clay said "the time just flew by" -- I would see him again in a heartbeat!
Me too!!! When are you touring again, Clay???
Thanks so much, you really do understand! A great article! Just saw him last night in Jacksonville and it was amazing........so sorry he hasn't made it to the NW lately but hope he does soon, like next tour.
Was seated next to a guy who works at our Hotel last night,he was given the ticket by someone who upgraded her seat. He made a point of saying 'he wasn't a fan, wasn't interested, but took the ticket'. Something to do...... Well, by the end he was laughing like crazy, cheering and just having a great time! I think he gets it now too!That's all the fans have ever asked for, just give him a chance.......he'll win you over!
Thank you for the great article. Clay's an all around entertainer. I wish I could have seen him.
Another great article written by Idol Fanatic! Wish I could have been there. Sadly, I'm here in the Pacific Northwest.
Wonderful article, thank you.
Clay is a most amazing and wonderful young man; an entertainer extraordinaire.
