Clay Aiken: Broadway Backwards Benefit!

Clay Aiken is all smiles at the after party for the Broadway Backwards benefit show at John’s Pizzeria in New York City on Monday (February 7).

Broadway Backwards “re-interprets the songs of musical theater by featuring women singing songs originally written for men and men singing songs written for women.”

Clay sang the song “Home” from the Broadway musical The Wiz during the concert.

The sixth annual concert raised a record-breaking $281,243 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fight AIDS.

Listen to Clay sing “Home” below…

    There is something so insufferably unlikeable about him.

    Great performance, though the recording does not do it justice. Unbelievably good in person.

    Sheesh, “disgusting”, do you keep **** q’d up to be ready to pounce on anything Aiken related?? That’s sad.

    As to disgusting, yes, he helped to raise a “disgustingly” large amount of cash to help a very worhwhile cause. I doubt your opinion matters a whole hella lot.

    Nice job singing the song, Aiken. In the context of the event it was very apropos.

    Go on with your bad self, dude. The hatas gon’ hate but people like yourself at least try to make life a bit more tolerable.

    Kudos to all who participated.

    Thank you Jared for the audio! I saw the video and he was great!
    From reports, the audience would not stop clapping until he came out for a second bow.
    Here is one of the videos –

    The entire concert was fabulous and Clay sang wonderfully. The audience even had him come out for another bow.

    The Broadway family embraces Clay and his talent. They recognize a good voice.

    JustJared, thank you for posting the news.

    Thanks for the info. I heard that Clay was one of the stars that evening.

    He is a true talent and is well-loved by many people.

    From reading here, it seems jealously reins here. Too bad!! But, heh, they get to feel important for a second! what a sad life.

    Glad this site put up this info.

    Can you explain what you’re saying here? From everything I’ve read about Clay, it’s just the opposite. When people meet him they all say he’s very likeable and down-to-earth.

    lol Says:

    For some reason I’ve always been under the impression that he could sing. I unintentionally heard a song by him yesterday on sound*cloud…..he sings so FLAT, wtf. His voice is sh!t.

    Mandy Says:

    Really liked him at one time, but now he just turns me off. What happened to his cute face and hair? Even his singing is no longer appealing. Pity. He had so much potential.

    Carole H Says:

    Thank you, Jared. It is nice to see that you too recognize talent.

    I don’t know why people hate Clay so much. Doesn’t make sense to me at all. If there is an artist out there that I dislike, I ignore them. Why can’t the Clay haters just leave him alone?

    I don’t know about the others but I got this through a Google Alert. Am I to believe that the haters have the alerts coming to them just so they can bash and trash him?

    You don’t have to like him but anyone who says the guy can’t sing knows diddly about music!

    Harley Says:

    Jealous Adam Lambert fans hate Clay because he’s a better singer and a better man. Ever wonder why Adam never got out of the chorus after 10 years in Musical theater. Its his horrible voice and all that screeching.

    shakira Says:

    @Harley: Why are you bringing Adam into this? : /

    Ignore Kaz, they’re a troll.

  25. 25
    LOL, OH. Says:

    @Harley: U know Adma did theatre to pay the bills, right? He wasn’t in theatre for 10 years….why make BS up lol.

    Clay COULD NEVER! :)
