Clay Aiken's "On My Way Here" Used in Olympic Coverage

Clay's song has been used often on Korean TV lately. The most recent is the following clip from the Olympic Medal award ceremony honoring the Gold Medal win of Korean swimmer Park Tae-Hwan in the 400m freestyle.

    That was a moment to remember with Park receiving his medal and OMWH, fittingly, be played in the background.

  2. That made me all teary - such a wonderful song and perfect for the occasion. On My Way Here - the Olympians train such long and hard hours for the single moment of glory.

    Thank you!!!

    That is so cool! It thrills my heart to think that Clay's music is being played at the Olympics where thousands of people can hear it.

    And OMWH is such a fitting tribute to all the athletes because it speaks of exactly what they must go through to reach their goals.

    Congratulations to ALL of the winners in the days to come.

    It's a shame more Americans don't have such great taste in music! Nice to hear it played in such an appropriate way and occasion.

    I guess the Koreans don't suffer from that "too-cool-for-school" syndrome. Congrats to them!

    I'm happy to see this moving song used in such a feel good story. Congratulations to Mr. Park on having the strength and faith to finally reach his goal. Congratulations to Jaymes and Clay for also having the faith and strenth to reach their goal. Much deserved happiness to all!

    So glad that someone is promoting OMWH. Perhaps RCA will take the hint.

    Naw! Why bother? They might sell a few CD's.
