Clay Aiken: A Man of Heart

February is shaping up to be a good month for Claymates, Clay Dawgs, Claymaniacs, Clay Nation, Claynadians, and all Clay's fans. It ain't called the "love month" for nothing!

The extraordinary video above is from Yahoo! Answers, which is currently featuring Clay's question, "What can we do to get more Americans committed to supporting programs that help children?"

The month of love - it begins on February 1, as Clay visits Good Morning America. According to the official fan club, Clay will appear next Thursday on behalf of UNICEF. Interested citizens may participate in this interactive appearance, by asking Clay their own questions about UNICEF and his role with them, or other pertinent questions in their feature "Be Seen, Be Heard." From their site:

Also on February 1, tickets go on sale for the first "Champions of Change" Benefit Gala in support of the Bubel/Aiken Foundation. In partnership with the Cardinal Club of Raleigh, NC, the event will be held on March 31, 2007. Check the BAF website on Thursday for more details.

Monday, February 5, brings yet another showing of Clay's episode of Scrubs from 2005, "My Life in Four Cameras." It airs at 7:30 pm EST on the Comedy Channel. The show aired originally in February 2005.

In the wee hours of Valentine's Day, February 14, at 2:00 am EST, Clay's episode of Saturday Night Live, with host Megan Mullally, airs on E!. This will be a truncated version of the original show, which originally aired in February 2004.

Later that same day, Clay visits Jimmy Kimmel Live in what is becoming perilously close to an annual tradition! I wonder what Clay will shave for Jimmy this time. ; ) Tune in at 12:05 am EST (just after midnight!) Valentine's night for what is sure to be a good time with the guys. Please note: Clay is not scheduled to perform at this time.

Clay Aiken is a man of heart, and of substance. He is making a difference, and helping "us" make a difference as well.

Thank you Clay. We Heart You.

He IS a man of heart. But I really wish he would deal with all these tabloid rumors, because no matter what GOOD he does, it's always offset by the garbage and gossip.

Say something Clay! Say something!

Great blog, Touchstone. I am always amazed at the 'works of love' that go into these inspiring pieces on Clay.
Thank you for another 'piece' of love.

Fantastic blog! I believe you have February covered from the CA perspective. It is indeed the month of love -- a thousand different ways!
