Let's Take a Fun Nostalgic Journey With Clay Via YouTube Videos

I thought while things have slowed down here in Claynation, it would be fun to take some time to enjoy a variety of YouTube videos over the next week or two. It will just be a hodge podge of interviews, tour performances and banter, talk shows, and whatever else I can find! We'll post two or three in each CDD article. Hope you enjoy this walk down memory lane.

Our first YouTube video is an interview from the early days of American Idol 2 with Jimmy Carter (not former President Carter!). This interview could be found at at the time Clay was interviewed.

You gotta love this next one. This is posted at YouTube by "ElvisCentral", and it is of Clay singing "Invisible" in Grand Prairie/Dallas, TX during the 2004 Independent Tour. This was my first Clay concert ever. Watch him work that stage as he dances from one end to the other throughout the whole song!

And our last one for the day, posted by chacha3078, is from Jimmy Kimmel Live. The most enthusiastic audience in the history of Jimmy's show had to have been there that day! How can we ever forget the time that Clay taught Jimmy Kimmel a lesson that Jimmy has never forgotten!! And the rest of the show is even funnier. Remember, "He hit me with his cane!!"? Or how about Clay talking about the food in Ireland that was "still walking around on the plate"!! One of the best talks show interviews with Clay ever!! Betcha you'll laugh just as hard as you did the first time you saw it!

Are you through laughing yet? Okay, I'll give you a little more time....(Jeopardy music playing in the background)...Do I have your attention now? Okay, then stay tune for 3 more video coming in the next day or two. I'll surprise you every day or two with some great memories!!

Two New Clay Pictures Have Surfaced...From (1) Somalia, and (2) QVC

Two new pictures of Clay surfaced this past week, giving Clay fans a couple of new smiles to smile about!

The first picture is one of Clay at QVC the week he was there to talk about and sell his CD. Its a great picture of a happy smiling Clay! See for yourself:

Then, a new picture of Clay on his UNICEF trip to Somalia was found in OK Magazine. Thanks to lsdollylovesclay for posting a scan of the picture and to Gerwhisp for scanning a high quality picture of this one! Both posted their scans at The Clayboard.

This last picture is an especially wonderful one of Clay's beautiful glowing smile! You can tell that both Clay and the children are having a wonderful time and enjoyed being together. What a great work Clay does with UNICEF for children all around the world!

Tidbits 7/29

KOIN-TV via Entertainment Tonight -

Dad-to-be Clay Aiken got a chance to practice his kid skills this summer as he spent five days touring Somalia observing UNICEF programs.

The UNICEF Ambassador spent time with Somali children, and got to see first-hand programs to improve child health, safe water, sanitation and hygiene, primary education, child protection and girls' empowerment.

Clay said about his tour of the country, "It's truly remarkable that UNICEF is still able to make a difference in the health, education and overall well-being of Somali children."

  • Idolator blogs about Canadian Idol ... Clay mention: "Mark Day—Canada's Clay Aiken!—knows what's up, taking on a Sugarland track in the midst of the band's hype bubble. "
  • Web Devil - American Idol auditions are back -
    We may not be Kelly Clarkson or Clay Aiken (thank God), but trying out for American Idol when it came to Phoenix last week would have been fun all the same. We'd get to mingle with Ryan Seacrest; impress Paula, Randy and Simon; stand in a line with thousands of other hopefuls and possibly humiliate ourselves. Sounds like fun to us.
  • Loveland Reporter Herald - story about songwriter Ben Glover, who has written songs for Clay -
    The Backstreet Boys, Trace Adkins, Clay Aiken and Avalon are some of the musicians on a long list of those Glover has written songs for or whose music he has helped improve.
  • TV Grapewine - American Idol news ...
    Clay Aiken will be a father in just a few short weeks, but he is still an UNICEF ambassador. He recently returned from Somalia and Kenya and has blogged about the importance of getting the children into a normal routine. He wants a solid education for all!
  • Deseret News - Clay Aiken made American Idol a show about personality: Simon Cowell -
    "I honestly think (Season 2 runner-up) Clay Aiken has changed this competition forever.... It's becoming incredibly personality led now," Cowell said — explaining Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks.
