Local kids can earn a chance to sing on stage with Clay Aiken

By Real Vail
December 12, 2012

The Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek is embracing the spirit of American Idol in honor of its Tuesday, Dec. 18 performance — Clay Aiken’s Joyful Noise Tour.

Students in the Vail Valley, with the help of a parent, are invited to submit YouTube videos of themselves singing their favorite song by no later than noon mountain time on Monday, Dec. 17.

The VPAC will then let the public decide who gets to sing on stage with Clay Aiken, by tallying the views for each video. Entrants should submit their YouTube links via email to kpeters@vvf.org. Videos will then be added to a playlist on the Vail Valley Foundation’s YouTube account, where the public can view the videos to vote. Voting and viewing will take place here: http://bit.ly/VPAC. The winner will be announced at 5 PM MST on December 17.

“Cultural education is tied to everything that we do at the VPAC, so this contest seemed like a natural extension of our youth programs like First Notes and STARS, said Kris Sabel, Executive Director of the VPAC. “I know from witnessing some of our community performances that we have some talented students in this Valley, and we look forward to seeing the submissions come in. Mr. Aiken is extremely involved in philanthropic youth initiatives as well, and I know he’ll be excited to invite our winner on stage.”

Clay Aiken

Clay Aiken first gained national attention on the second season of American Idol in 2003, and has evolved into a versatile and beloved popular entertainer, with five well-received albums released that sold more than 6 million units as of 2011.One such album,“Merry Christmas with Love,”stands as the fastest selling Christmas album in history.

Throughout his career, Aiken has continuously been a supportive activist on behalf of children. As he has often explained, “My music career has allowed me to do the same thing I was doing before—work with kids. It has just given me a bigger stage, so I can enact change on a grander scale.” Clay has been an ambassador for UNICEF since 2004; the same year he started the National Inclusion Project with co-founder Diane Bubel. NIP supports the integration of children with disabilities into the same environments as their non-disabled peers.

VPAC audience members can expect to hear some of their holiday favorites on Tuesday night from famed tenor Clay Aiken, along with some of his own work and of course, his beloved renditions of the classics. The performance starts at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $78, and will be offered at a special rate for students participating in the “Win a Chance to Sing On-Stage with Clay” contest. Participating families should contact the VPAC box office at 970-845-TIXS to redeem this special offer. In addition, the winner will receive two free tickets to attend the performance with their parent.

Tickets for Clay Aiken’s Joyful Noise Tour and all other performances in the VPAC’s Winter Series are on sale now and available online at vilarpac.org, by phone at 970.845.TIXS or in person at the VPAC Box Office in Beaver Creek.

The Vilar Performing Arts Center is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information on the Vail Valley Foundation, visit www.vvf.org.

Portable coops are often used for pastured chickens. As these organic chickens require grass for nutrition, the owner can then relocate the chicken coop tractor to a new stretch of land every week or so. Using this method, the chickens would be able to feed on fresh patches of grass, rather than the ones that have already been pecked at. The moving process is quick, simple, and requires minimal effort from the owner. organic chicken online

When buying hunting land for sale, look for plant diseases or problems on the land. That can indicate a serious problem. Walk the property and look for signs of sick animals. Also, most areas now require maintenance of noxious weeks. As the property owner you will be held responsible for keeping your land cleared of particular plants. sig p226 for sale

Now let us say that those same two thugs are either deaf or just really stupid and don't retreat when you set the alarm off. Well now those two gentlemen have a real problem because what you have at your disposal is a 2000,000 volt stun device. Just the crackle of electricity and bright blue arc of light should be enough to intimidate even the fiercest of attackers but should they want to test what 200,000 volts will do then by all means let them experience it. Let me tell you what will happen to an attacker that gets jolted with a couple hundred thousand volts, they will stop attacking usually.

A lot of folks have a hard time with the lethal alternative. That's where the nonlethal alternative of self defense products comes in. Pepper spray for example is the largest selling self defense product and world and has been around literally for thousands a years too. Stun guns were invented in the 1930s by farmers who wanted to use an electric prod to move their cattle along.
