Last night, a tribute concert took place at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center in NYC to honor Neil Sedaka, prolific songwriter and singer, for “50 years of hits,” with proceeds going to the Elton John AIDS foundation.
Many singers who made recordings of his songs performed. Including…
Clay Aiken, who remade “Solitaire” – in a big way. Huge sales.
From the looks of it, Clay sang the heck out of this song last night. I hear he got a standing O. Way to go, Clay.
Update: The video was removed from YouTube.
So instead of a bad link, here is one of my favorite versions. August, 2005. Wolftrap. I was there. Check out what happens at -1:30.
