From the CB:
The #1 non-fiction bestseller book for 2004 was The Purpose-Driven Life by Rick Warren with sales of 7,340,000. Second was the South Beach Diet published in 2003 with sales of 3,002,597 in 2004. Learning to Sing is very respectable #53 on the list for 2004 with sales of 253,540. I really do think this is for the Random House version only and doesn't include the version sold through the Christian bookstore market. As a book buyer that's very impressive sales and celebrity biographies really aren't hot numbers like they used to be. Jane Fonda will probably sell very well but notice how she's out working like a demon promoting to beat the band

From the CB:
Clay taped his Dr. Phil episode on Tuesday, and the topic was Kids and Bullying! Clay talked about how he was bullied when he younger because he was "awkward" and "funny looking" (I think those were the words) and also talked about becoming a teacher and related the problems with bullies to education.

Clay has dropped to #13 on the Lycos50. Get some more "Clay Aiken" searches in at www.lycos.com.
Here is a cool website where you can "buy" stocks in Clay and other artists.
The site is 100% free and there is no real money exchanged at all.
An artist's stock generally goes up when he/she has a new album out, so Clay's it quite low now...
Go take a peak Popstocks.com.

This came from Bolt, so salt lick handy. I sure hope it's true! Clay was reported to be at the concert Saturday night in Aneheim and was aparently was NOT bothered.
From the CB:
Nothing major but Clay was finally mentioned on TRL UK today, which was cool as he's never mentioned over here. The presenter was talking to Ciara about her role models growing up (Michael & Janet Jackson) and how Clay's a good role model and how he's a big fan of his.
From the CH
So, I was looking around in my WalMart music dept. this morning, and the clerk comes up to me and says, "Have you heard that your Clay Aiken has a new album coming out in June? I said WHAT???
He said, Yeah, it came out on our list. I asked if it had a name, and he said, not yet.
Well, I knew from our discussions that June is not possible, but that didn't stop my heart from skipping a beat, or two, or ten.

From the CB:
This is probably supposed to be secret but I know someone who is close to the insiders in NC (she doesn't live there herself, but she's very credible) and she said she has heard 5 songs that Clay has recorded so far.
I have been sitting on this info for a few weeks now just biting my tongue. I really can't see any reason why you all shouldn't know too. All she said about them, Starhorse, is that they all sounded great and one of them reminded her of some big 80s singer whose name escapes me right now. Oh, and that he'll be recording a bunch more and who knows which ones will wind up on the CD.
I was with Claym8 the night we got the info, and have no doubt as to the credibility of the person who shared the info. She said that he had completed 5 songs, and would record 15 or more in total, and then the selection for the album would be made. She said that one of the songs was a Richard Marx-like song, and then mentioned one of Marx's earlier hits - the song escapes me now but I'll know the title when I see it. I don't know if we should be sharing this information or not, but like Claym8 said, I'm not sure what the harm would be in so doing.
She also told us that Clay would not be going on to Uganda from Indonesia (he was in Indonesia then) because there was a family situation which would soon become public that he had to fly home for. She didn't share what the problem was. Two days later we learned that Brett was being deployed and he was on his way home. I believe that she has heard the songs, and my impression from the conversation was that she had heard them rather recently, but that's just an impression I got from the conversation.
She did mention the song, and I immediately recognized it, but can't remember it at the moment. She also said she loved the song which was the Marx-like one and hoped it made it unto the album.
I don't know who has written it - and I could be entirely wrong about the board discussion around a songwriter who wrote for Richard Marx who was supposedly writing for Clay. All I know is that the recorded song that was heard reminded her of Richard Marx's song Right Here Waiting for You.
