Knocking lots of laughter!

LINDAS WORDS 'YOU OUGHT TO SEE HIM IN THIS WHITE SUIT LORDY LORDY JUST GORGEOUS LOL

NYmom,

This opener gives me chills from the first note. It is stunning, with the harmonizing of the carolers, the way angel Clay moves among the people and touches them - and his incredible voice is so rich and pure. Just amazing!

This cellstream is coming in loud and clear. It is so awesome to hear his voice coming through my headphones!

---

So what else do your friends say about me....

Oh no I'd never say anything about you

Oh sure.

Do you think my face needs ironing...MORE LAUGHTER!

From CV, CB:

The words to Angela's song are very sad... and they fit the strory-line so well...but yeah... she can get a little overwrought at the end... sometimes the cellcert sounds a lot 'screechier' on the higher notes, might not be as shrill in person ?

-----

I think the higher tones of Angela's voice don't carry over the cell phones so she ends up screeching at the receiver's end.

----

oh, i love celebrate me home!

-----

EEEEE!! I am so addicted to this song

Clay's pants are rayon & softly drape around his ankles. The girls coats are to their knees. Striped sock red & black

NO flashes so far.

She says they are selling MCWL, but they aren't selling LTS.

She thinks shawl is pretty. Not as big as she expected. Shawl is very nice.

Ornament - Clay sitting holding his knee. Ornament is white with a red border. Looks nice, she thinks.

She did not see his socks, but someone said they are strped.

LINDA IS ON THE PHONE NOW SHE SAYS " YOU CAN'T IMAGINE HOW WONDERFUL THIS SHOW IS HOS VOICE IS BETTER THAN SHE HAS EVER HEARD ...SHE SAID SHE LOST IT WHEN HE SANG CELEBRATE ME HOME.........SHE JUST COULD NOT BELIEVE HIS VOICE........HIS STAGE PRESENCE..........HE HAS SUCH A GLOW SUCH A LOOK OF PURE JOY ON HIS FACE.......SHE HAS NEVER SEEN HIM LIKE THIS EVER........SHE LITERALLY HAD TO STOP TALKING SHE WAS SO MOVED........EVERYONE SHOULD SEE THIS SHOW..............AND SHE AND KAREN CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYONE COULD SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THIS CONCERT........AND FROM WHAT i HAVE SEEN FROM THE FEW VIDEOS I HAVE DOWNLOADED AND FROM WHAT I HAVE HEARD TONIGHT I TOTALLY AGREE.........SHE WILL CALL ME BACK AFTER INTERMISSION AND SHE ISN'T SURE SHE CAN MAKE IT THROUGH THE 2ND HALF........WILL KEEP YOU POSTED!

There just aren't words to describe listening to Clay sing O Holy Night.

---

O HOLY NIGHT .........I HAVE CHILLS LITERALLY.........HOLDING NIGHT OUT A REALLY LONG TIME OMG PERFECT

O Holy Night, O Night Divine! Wow - I know the night was devine - but so is his voice! When he hits that high note - just incredible!

TFN HOW IS IT THAT HE SOUNDS SO GREAT NIGHT AFTER NIGHT

---

Oh, this is just gorgeous ! I wonder whether it is the acoustics in the venue, Smitten's Nokia phone or a combination of both. We should get some beautiful mp3s from this ........... not to mention videos of those pants ! I wonder if these will be the JNT2 Pants of Perfection. Cannot wait to see videos !!

---

From CB, CV, CH:

Christmas is his favorite season.

The recorded message.

Christmas is midterms and school vactions.

But now he has matured and understands the reason for the season.

He's thanking the family of fans for allowing to him to do what he loves best.

He makes this joyful noise for us!

Speaking to the audience now.

This is a little different from a concert.

Post concert report:

cellstream reporter laughed cos she saw Clay roll his eyes at the cat calls during the start of the 2nd half

they passed on Beverley's wig down the line ans they were goofing off...

Andy started too early for DSIAFCD so CLay said he has a happy triger finger so Clay said so lets jsut start DSIAFCD...

when clay was singing before the glory note he was holding the wig...then he tosses it while he sings and he picked it up and palced it on JAcob...

He was wearing his blakc outfit for last part.

---they have UNICEF in the lobby.

---

CROWD GOES ABSOLUTELY INSANE!

MORE SCREAMING

MORE APPLAUSE

Nolan picked up wig put it on and then passed it around Clay got it looked at strangely and then put it on Jacob's head...real cute they say everyone loved it!

From OFC via CH:

During intermission, my husband and I got talking with the sound man. We had said hello at Portland, since we were sitting right by the equipment. He told us how difficult it is to blend the sound in a production like this. He said that he has 38 years experience, much of it with musicals, and he told us about the importance of allowing the emotion to come through in the sound. He said that loud concerts are easy and they have lots of tricks to make them sound good. He said Clay's work was very difficult and takes much more finesse. I hope I have summarized his comments correctly. He was very interesting and and friendly.
