Happy 33rd Birthday to Clay Aiken!

http://media.onsugar.com/files/2011/01/03/2/1331/13311615/5b/clay-aiken-400a052307.jpgHard to believe, but it’s been nearly TEN years since Clay Aiken came onto the scene on American Idol where he was the runner-up to Ruben Studdard.

But Clay has gone in to become a much bigger star than Ruben and was the first to prove that you don’t have to win the competition to have a huge career as Adam Lambert, Chris Daughtry, and Jennifer Hudson have also proved.

Since then, Clay has released six albums, headlined nine concert tours, and starred on Broadway in Spamalot. He’s also come out publicly, become a father, spoken out against bullying and in favor of LGBT equality.

Happy birthday to Clay!

9 Remarks

  1. Happy Birthday, Clay. Love ya!!!

  2. Looks like he’ll be getting a great present from the fans, too! Last year, in November, fans and supporters of his non-profit the National Inclusion project were able to vote in the Pepsi Refresh Challenge, and secure a grant for the Project. A few weeks ago, he blogged, saying that was the best birthday present he had received, and asking could we do it again?

    Yes sir, we could! The Project has been in second place in the $50,000 category(we have to finish in the top 10 to receive the money)since voting started for this month. Today is, of course, the last day, and unless there has been some drastic error, the Project will be receiving a grant again this time!

    Also, fans were able to raise approximately $30,000 amongst ourselves.

  3. Happy Birthday Clay. Hope you have an awesome birthday with your family and friends. You so deserve it. Love ya!!!

  4. Happy Birthday Princess!!!

  5. Happy Birthday Clay! Hope you have a wonderful day!!

  6. Clay has certainly done what he had set out to do all those years ago on idol. Use his celebrity for good in the world. Between his work with UNICEF,LGBT and his own foundation for disabled children he has more then fufilled that promise. This is one celebrity that doesn’t just walk the red carpets like so many.
    Looking forward to new music in the new year.
    Happy 33rd birthday Clay!

  7. Happy birthday Clay!! You are amazing

  8. Happy 33rd Birthday Clay.

    We love and support you…and your foundation.

  9. The fans work hard to give Clay what he wants the most …. money for his charitable foundation. Why? Because he gives so much to us in return. Once again, Happy Birthday Clay, although it’s a day late this time. Love to you and yours.
