Clay Aiken: Ten years After-Somewhere Out There

Ten years ago, Clay sang 'Somewhere Out There'.  It was movie night and the song was from 'An American Tail', written by James Horner, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil.  The single was released by Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram

Watch this beautiful performance.  It goes to show you how far we've come in ten years judging by the quality of the video.  There was no HD back then.

Randy wondered where 'that voice' came from, Paula said Clay was effortless and natural.  Gladys Knight thought Clay was a mystery, magical, exceptional, pure.  Simon, on the other hand, said that he loved songs about mice, then told Clay that he was the one to beat.

I loved this song on American Idol.  :::LOVED:::
