Clay Aiken Biography
As the runner-up to Fox TV's second American Idol: The Search
for a Superstar competition, vocalist Clay Aiken wowed television
audiences in 2003 with his Southern charm, sweet demeanor, and bright,
glorious voice, and became a pop star. Originally, Aiken planned to try
out for the reality TV series The American Race, but went ahead and
auditioned for the talent contest to please an encouraging friend. Out
of 7,000 hopefuls, the Charlotte, NC, native won the hearts of the
judges as well as millions of fans across the globe.
Born November 30, 1978, Aiken was singing at an early age. Unlike most
young kids, Aiken was confident and ready to impress a crowd. He was
already singing the Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers classic Islands in the
Stream at a local high school dance by age five. Two year later, he
was buying albums through a mail-order catalog, eager to get his hands
on any kind of music. Aiken's vocal talent was blossoming and by the
time he reached his teenage years, he was a regular member of the
Raleigh Boys Choir. Countless roles in various musicals, (The Music
Man, Oklahoma!), stage plays, and playhouse shows allowed Aiken to hone
When it came time to go to college, music wasn't Aiken's calling per
se. He studied special education instead and had dreams of attending
William & Mary for a master's degree in administration. Before he
could further his education, Aiken ended up wooing 21 million
television viewers each week from February to May with his sensational
singing voice. His rendition of Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over
Troubled Waters sewed him a spot among America's hearts. Although he
finished second to Ruben Studdard, Aiken's loss was not taken lightly.
He landed a deal with RCA through Simon Fuller's 19 Recordings Limited
within weeks of the show's finale.
That same month, Aiken's debut single, This Is the Night, made
history by going number one on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. It sold more
than 392,000 copies during its first week, beating Elton John's record
for Candle in the Wind 1997. In October 2003, Aiken issued his studio
full-length, The Measure of a Man. Once again, the little guy with the
big voice made a big splash. The Measure of a Man sold 613,000 copies
and went to number one on Billboard's Top 200 during its first week of
release. His first holiday effort, Merry Christmas with Love, followed
in November 2004. The album debuted at number one on Billboard's Top
Holiday Albums chart, giving Merry Christmas with Love the biggest
debut week sales figures for a Christmas album in SoundScan history.
