Clay Aiken – Weekend Fun!

France celebrates Bastille Day on July 14. Bastille Day is the equivalent of America’s July 4th. It is celebrated across France. Celebrations include fireworks, parades, and Fireman’s Galas, in which firehouses across France open their doors to the public for a night of partying.

Bastille Day remembers the end of the French monarchy and the beginning of the French Revolution.

The flag of France has three colors; Blue, white and red. They symbolize the Republic’s three ideals: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity for all French citizens.

So…to all our French readers, we wish you a wonderful holiday.

On July 14, 2004, Clay Aiken was a guest on CBS for their Summer Concert Series which is part of the Early Show.  Clay’s performance was originally scheduled for  July 7th, but had to be re-scheduled.  Clay was doing the rounds of the talk shows in preparation of his “Not-A-Tour” that started in July.

The studio was crowded and there were more fans there than could make it in to see the concert.  Hosted by Rene Syler, the interview before the concert was animated and interesting.  Much of the conversation was about the impact of Clay’s success on his life.

“It’s like a whirlwind dream,” Clay told Rene.  “It’s fun, you know.  Every day’s different.  Every day’s new and I’m excited all the time.”

 

Rene asked Clay about his biggest fan and he said it was his mother.  Clay said of his mother:

“I think she always thought I’d do this, more so than I did.  I think she dreamed this for me before I did.  She would probably say that she knew this all along.  So it’s just, for her, I think it’s just what she always expected.  For me, it’s great to have her be able to be a part of it and to make her proud.”

Clay revealed in the interview that he was busy recording a holiday-themed CD that was to be released the following holiday season.  He also was a spokesperson and reader for Stories for Heros, a series of classic children’s stories on CD.  A majority of the proceeds from the sale of the audiobook benefited The Bubel/Aiken Foundation.

For the mini-concert, Clay sang “I Will Carry You”, “Invisible” and “The Way.”  The audience was excited and supportive and the entire program was a great success.

I hope you enjoy this fun video!  It sure looks like Clay was having lots of fun!

 

This was many years ago…Do you remember this concert?

Clay Aiken – It’s The Fourth Track

 

 

It is the fourth track on Clay Aiken’s CD, “Measure Of A Man”.

…It is a light hearted song that was popular on Clay’s tours.

It is…

When You Say You Love Me – 

I’ve been watching you from afar
And the way you make your way around the bar
You laugh like you’re really entertained
And you smile like it’s your favorite game
Now you’re moving closer to me
And our eyes connect emotionally
I’m not looking for a one-night stand
Or a place for a broken heart to mend

I know ev’rybody here wants to hold you
I know what it’s like ’cause I feel the same
When you look in my eyes
There’s a part of me that’s still afraid

(Chorus:)
And when you say you love me, do you mean it?
Baby, when you hold me, do you feel it?
Should I believe the magic in your eyes?
I would wait until the end of time
To hear you say you love me like you mean it
Baby, when you hold me, make me feel it
All I want to do is make you mine
I’ve been hurt way too many times

In 2002, Darren Hayes and Rick Nowels collaborated to write a Pop song called When You Say You Love Me.

Darren Hayes  is an Australian singer/songwriter who is most famous for being the frontman and lead singer of the pop duo Savage Gardens.

Rick Nowels has been writing songs since he was 13 years old.  Rick has written and/or produced hits for Dido, Fleetwood Mac, N’SYNC, Jewel, KD Lang and many others.

It’s an uncomplicated song and the lyrics are not too complex, but for some reason, Clay seemed to have trouble getting it right.  Maybe he was concentrating on his dancing!

I hope you enjoy the following video of Clay performing  When You say You Love Me!

 

 It always looks like everyone is having a great time!!

Clay Aiken – 30 Million Per Day!

As a fan of Clay Aiken, I have come to enjoy YouTube. It has given me the opportunity to re-live many Clay Aiken memories and, even more importantly, has allowed me to watch many artistic montages by some talented fans.

YouTube was founded by three former PayPal employees, who, after witnessing the boom of online grassroots video, realized the need for a decent service that made the process of uploading, watching and sharing videos hassle-free. They registered the domain YouTube.com on February 15th, 2005 and developed the site over the following months from a garage in Menlo Park. Google bought the site in November 2006 for US$1.65 billion; YouTube now operates as one of Google’s subsidiaries.

Salman Asian at the website, omnivore, posted some interesting facts about YouTube.  The facts are from January, 2018.  The following are a few of the interesting facts.

  • The very first YouTube video was uploaded on 23 April 2005.
  • The total number of people who use YouTube – 1.57 billion
  • 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute!
  •  5 billion videos are watched on Youtube every single day.
  • YouTube gets over 30 million visitors per day
  • 6 out of 10 people prefer online video platforms to live TV
  • The total number of hours of video watched on YouTube each month – 3.25 billion.
  • 75% of adults turn to YouTube for nostalgia rather than tutorials or current events.

Clay Aiken – “The Moment You’re Near”

In 1954, the Erroll Garner Trio introduced an instrumental song titled “Misty.” About a year later, Johnny Burke penned the lyrics, creating the song that is well-known today. “Misty” remained relatively unknown until Johnny Mathis popularized the vocal version with his million-selling recording in 1959.

Although it was never a number one hit, “Misty” has been performed by hundreds of instrumentalists and vocalists.

Misty

 Look at me, I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree,

And I feel like I’m clinging to a cloud, I can’t understand,

I get misty, just holding your hand.

 Walk my way, and a thousand violins begin to play,

Or it might be the sound of your hello, that music I hear,

I get misty, the moment you’re near…

Clay Aiken recorded this beautiful song for his Cd, Tried & True.

Clay has such a beautiful voice…this song shows it off!

The following is a performance by Clay on his Tried & True Tour 

Enjoy!
