Clay Aiken is Hot!

Glitter Text @

It's no secret to those who read this blog that I love Clay Aiken. I think he is a megatalented entertainer whose integrity and heart of gold hooked me long ago. I've always found Clay attractive, never more so than now after a new picture of him was posted on the social networking site Twitter a few days ago, looking tan, trim, and fit. Much of Clay Nation is salivating over this picture.
Photobucket The other person in the picture is David Novik, Head of A&R @deccalabelgroup. David and Clay should be working closely together as Clay prepares for his next album, tentatively due out in early to mid 2010.

The National Inclusion Project

Clay Aiken and Diane Bubel have proudly announced a name change for the Bubel Aiken Foundation. It is now the National Inclusion Project.

NIP was founded in 2003 and arose out of the relationship between Clay Aiken and Diane Bubel, and their work with Diane's son Michael, a boy with autism. For six years the foundation has worked to provide opportunities of inclusion for all children, regardless of ability.

An excerpt of an open letter from Diane Bubel and Clay Aiken.

As we realized the impact the Foundation has already made, it became apparent that even bigger accomplishments could be on the horizon. To that end, we along with the rest of the Board decided that a new name for the Foundation would establish long-term credibility and stability. We sought a name that would signify the Foundation’s position as a national leader on inclusion as well as recognize the Foundation’s start and the efforts of its faithful supporters. After much thought and deliberation, we are proud to introduce the organization we co-founded as the National Inclusion Project.

Great job to Clay, Diane, the entire board and staff of NIP, and all the countless supporters of this very worthy cause.
