Clay Aiken campaigns in San Francisco – Tuesday evening, San Francisco power-couples Armistead Maupin and Chris Turner, and David Perry and Alfredo Casuso, hosted a fundraising event for Aiken at Catch, a seafood restaurant in the Castro District. Having read a plug for this event in Leah Garchick’s column, I begged to attend. Thanks to Leah, and ultimately Maupin, I was allowed in. Thirty or so of us gathered at Catch, and Aiken dutifully made the rounds. Nearby, a friend asked for a photo with Clay. “I do selfies!” announced Aiken. “And we hashtag them #selfieswithclay.” – Read more at SF Gate

LifeLight: Colton Dixon interview – Question: What is the significance to titling the album “Anchor?” Answer: When I released “A Messenger” and started touring, I realized how easy it was to get caught up in schedules and how easy it was to get distracted on the road. In turn, it made me realize how important it was to be focused, and for me, my faith is a big part of what I do. I was thinking of the word daily. No matter what you do, if you’re on a stage constantly speaking to people, you need to make sure that you have something to say. You need to make sure you’re fed in whatever profession you’re doing, and for me, it’s spiritually-fed. I realized on stage I’m basically spiritually feeding all of these people in the audience, and making sure they’re encouraged to connect with God. I couldn’t count those moments as my personal spiritual time because I’m going to walk off stage drained. – Read more at Argus Leader

  1. Marie looks as awesome as ever (and she’s a great person too)!!!

  2. She and Archie look like they could be related in that picture lol.

  3. I don’t think they look anything alike, except they are both brunettes with brown eyes. Marie is very pretty, however, and never seems to age.

  4. I was thinking of similar cheekbones and smiles along with the coloring but opinions like that can definitely be subjective. I agree, Marie looks great.

  5. I’ve seen this on TV. She looks really good, so I can see why she gets movie roles.

  6. DC has another Double Header coming up this weekend – and both of these are free.

    The first one in Indiana on Friday at the Legends of Notre Dame Nightclub for Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross students only – (plus 2), where David Cook and The Black Cadillacs will kick off their first concert of the year. The 2nd gig is at the University of Toledo on Saturday, with Mike Posner, at their Music Fest 2014.

    I don’t know Posner, and I keep confusing him with Dream Theater’s Mike Portnoy – for no particular reason – except that “P”alliteration, and Portnoy may have been a better fit with DC. IMO. At least they have a connection that goes back to 2008. I guess the organizers figured Posner and DC are both singer/songwriters? Eh. What do I know? Looking forward to reading about both shows in the Concert thread.

  7. Posner is hip-hop/pop/R&B. Kris was on the bill with him earlier this year for a college show. Posner recently parted ways with RCA Records.

  8. He had a big hit song 3 or 4 yrs ago called “Cool Like Me”. But I haven’t heard much from him as an artist since then. He has worked with Bieber some, writing/producing some of his more recent stuff.

  9. So does David but I do believe his workouts are working :) It’s time for another shopping spree!

  10. Super excited for new music from David Archuleta. He’s been writing with some pretty cool sounding musicians :)

  11. Mike Posner is a singer/songwriter/producer who had a few hits a few years back. He wrote some pretty big hits for Justin Bieber, Pharrell, Emeli Sande, and others. I saw him open for Bieber last year and he’s really good.

  12. “Posner recently parted ways with RCA Records.”

    Really. At the very least, he had that in common with Kris and David. Heh.

  13. I see. That’s why I wouldn’t have known anything about him – totally off in another world from the music or the artists I enjoy. Odd pairing, but I’lll be interested to see how each artist’s fans adjust to the combination. Or not.

  14. Cooler than Me. Loved that song..Had a top 20 follow up hit, Please Don’t Go too. But then RCA never released his sophomore album in the US, released a few singles that never got much traction. He wrote a big hit for Bieber (Boyfriend) and Labrynth (beneath your beautiful), toured with Bieber.
