Korean Olympic coverage featured songs by Clay Aiken




Three of Clay Aiken's songs were used in the coverage of various events including medal awards ceremonies, before and after various events and for pre Olympic broadcast promotion.

A fan in Korea reports:

Now that the Olympics are over, one of the best things that happened during the Olympics was that we had many opportunities to hear Clay's songs on TV.

  17. The USA should have used Clay Aiken's songs in their Olympic coverage. The USA missed the boat there, IMHO.

    I hope that the US take a leaf out of the Koreans book and get Clay Aiken on the radio. The last CD is so radio friendly.

    Yes, Truth Rules, I don't understand why RCA did such a pitiful job promoting Clay Aiken's new CD, On My Way Here. Each song is more gorgeous than the last!

    Dont wanna go on about it but On My Way Here is the best CD of Clay Aikens to date. Each song is so unique and seems to tell a story that I can relate to.

    Very cool about the Korean promotion!! Nothing like the thrill of competition with a little Clay Aiken thrown in to set the tone.
