It’s a good morning when you wake up to another promo vid for Clay Aiken’s forthcoming CD, “Tried and True”, and a good one too!

We get video of the photo shoot for the album and more snippets from Clay’s PBS special.  Clay talks about the CD (musically, artistically, a “home” for him) and the taping of the PBS special.

A friend discovers Clay Aiken’s Sacrificial Love

Posted in Music tagged , , at 6:46 am by myrlinn

So I was with my friend yesterday, and she was enthusiastically telling me about her latest craze, Dancing With The Stars, especially a certain Mark Ballas. 

Then she asked me if I knew that the contestants had danced to Clay’s “Sacrificial Love”– she saw it on youtube. And, of course, I was puzzled. I didn’t remember his song ever being featured on the show. And sure enough, when I got home, I looked it up, and it’s a montage of video clips from DWTS set to Clay’s song. The video so seamlessly matched that my friend didn’t realise that the song wasn’t used in the actual show. Also, the combination of waltz  to song was so effective that it made her love the song.

What a compliment to LoveClaysVoice, the creator of the clip. Check it out:

Clay Aiken to release new CD in 2010

Posted in Music tagged , at 4:23 pm by myrlinn

The actual focus of the news is Clay signing with a new record label (Source: Clayonline.com August 10 2009 news), but for me, the exciting part is of course..

NEW CD!!!

The first half of 2010 seems just a bit too far away, though. Why, that could be as long as year. I sure wish he would release a couple of singles in the interim, songs which needn’t necessarily make it onto the next album but which would be released to radio and promoted through TV appearances, and perhaps even a music video? I miss seeing him perform. But I don’t suppose that will be happening. It’s lucky that patience happens to be one of my few virtues.

Clay Aiken singing at David Foster and Friends, 9 May 2009

Every time I hear Clay sing live, I’m wowed all over again. He really should do at least one solo concert this year — bet lots of fans will travel wherever for that.

In the meantime, here’s a video of Clay singing a Peter Cetera medley at this year’s David Foster and Friends concert (uploaded to Youtube by another fan, not me):
