In an article entitled, "American Idol 2005 Runner-up Revs Crowd", by Cheryl Winkelman, STAFF WRITER, a good mention concerning Clay Aiken can be found toward the end. Though this "Inside Bay Area.com" article is primarily about Bo Bice's San Joaquin County Fair concert, it also mentions that Bo's album has sold "a respectable 625,000 copies."
Now we get to the good stuff!! "Other 'American Idol' runner-ups have had varied success", the article says. It mentions the low volume that some of the runner-ups have sold and then talks about the success of another runner-up who we all know and love, as follows:
However, 2003's runner-up, Clay Aiken, had a huge success and sold almost 3 million copies of "Measure of a Man" and more than 1 million copies of "Merry Christmas With Love."Makes me proud and more than ready for the undeniable success-to-come of Clay's next CD!
