From CB:

Since the stream finally improved - I'll catch us up.

We're on the first vignette. Clay sounds in FINE form tonight. Christmastime was hard to hear on the stream but the new connection brought MCWL through beautifully.

Phone is ringing now - she can't leave a message - box is full.

But thank you for calling.

---

SLEIGH RIDE

audience laughing a bit at something - sounds like they're clapping along.

---

It'll be the perfect ending of a perf-ect day.

Well the perfect ending part sure is right with Clay singing us off to our dreams.

Sounds like lots of audience reaction.

---

Great audience reaction at the end of SLEIGH RIDE.

Jingle Bells now - I saw a post somewhere the other day that said something like this is Clay's Christmas Mac the Knife.

I unerstand what she meant it has a style to it.

And man did he hit those high notes just now!

Sounds VERY energetic tonight.

One. Horse. Open. Sleeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh.

Roaring from crowd.

next vignette

She just doesn't enjoy Christmas as much when there's no one to celebrate it with.

---

Its time to get all dreamy, because Clay says its the Season for Romance. Anything you say Clay - you've got us in the palm of your hand.

His voice sounds as beautiful as ever tonight

---

They're talking about how her husband used to go out and cut down their tree and carry it home and I can only think about this....

---

Season for Romance now *sigh* sounds so lovely. Definitely one of my top favorites!

---

It'll get you if you give it half a chance.

Any takers?????

---

Have yourself a merry little Christmas.

I think we're all having ourselves two months of merry little Christmases thanks to our favorite singer.

Christmas Waltz....

Frosted windowpanes and all that.....

It's that time of year when the world falls in love.

---

He came in second - WOW GREAT crowd reaction - they're cheering and it even sounds like booing. even better on the I should have won but whatever.

They are SO loving this!

I forgot he didn't win.

---

Geri - I sure can picture this, because after all - Clay just sang, "Its that time of year when the world falls in love." He was inviting us to do the Christmas Waltz with him - and then decorate the tree afterwards. Hmm....... Now he's singing about hearing Silver Bells on every street corner.............so pretty!

---

Silver Bells duet

Soon it will be Christmas Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

really, really lovely

Tommy says she's good

audience agrees

off to make cookies

---

Picture this:

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Yuletide carols being sung by the choir and folks dressed up like eskimos.

Crowd keeps laughing a little at something

settled in to listed to Clay's glorious voice now.

---

Ahhhh........so very true!

I love the way he holds out the last note of the Christmas Song so softly and just kind of lets it whisper away. Merry Christmas.............toooooooo..............you...........*sigh*

---

Angela is singing now - I Miss You Most at Christmas Time

This song really captures a younger version of MCWL, doesn't it? Just love the lyrics.

---

Talking about neighborhood, door, light bill????? did we ever figure that one out?????

Tommy can stay longer and she's happy. They're about to decorate the house - with a little help from a certain guardian angel (who is about to kill us all with CELEBRATE ME HOME)

What IS it with this song? I totally adore O Holy Night but it's Season for Romance and CELEBRATE ME HOME that are singing through my brain and heart when I fall asleep and are still there when I wake up.

THANK YOU, Clay for this glorious show and especially for knocking us all dead with CELEBRATE ME HOME - from the soft opening to the growls to the overwhelming emotion of the song.

Okay, I'll just shut up and listen.

---

Celebrate Me Home was amazing! He sounds so incredibl

Intermission:

about 70% attendance...

good crowd response...very great CMH...very growly...

One part the snow was just coming down on clay...and a big clump fell on Quianna

---

apparently there is some problem with the sound - they had to bring Angela a hand mic midway through her song.

----

For the people who have been asking - no reports yet that I've seen on the size of the crowd but the reporter says they are VERY enthusiastic. Sitting near someone who won a fanclub meetngreet.

---

Angela was very professionla when her mic went off...didn;t miss a beat.

Tommy is doing his reading. Now Clay's singing again O HOLY night. On this night divine. You can hear the angel voices. O Holy Night

The crowd joins me in loving OHN

-=--

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

his performance of this song is positively masterful.

Such total control over each note.

---

Jacob is singing Emmanuel. I really do like his rendition of this - but when we get to this it also means the show is nearly over.

---

Ahhhhh, yet another of my favorites.

Mary, Did You Know

---

I love this whole Christmas show - but I'm so glad we get to hear the amazing songs in the second half again this year. To me, hearing Clay sing O Holy Night, The First Noel, Hark the Herald/O Come All Ye Faithful and Mary Did You Know - the way he puts his own special brand on them - is just a sweet slice of heaven.

He's singing Mary Did You Know right now - I just never get tired of it.

Vignette leading into My Grown Up Christmas List.

From CB:

Recorded message about what Christmas means to him.

Sounds like he has re-recorded this.

Hello, Salt Lake City!

Insert screams.

Thank you so much for being here this evening.

More screams.

He's trying to share the Christmas spirit in a different way.

Learning about holidays in new ways.

He said something that has crowd roaring with laughter.

He's come to realize that holidays don't have to be spent with blood relatives.

Thanks for being family and now introducing family on stage.

Band intro...

started getting tongue tied as he talks about having a family of friends...

was introducing William Joseph and kept repeating from Phoenix Arizona...

---got flustered introducing DSIAFCDso just went straight to the song.

---

He started talking about how he's learned the last two years that family doesn't necessarily mean having to be related to someone by blood - and then he said, "Thank you so much for being a part of our family." I'm so touched by how he continues to emphasize this, and that he wants to include us.

Clay is very good at telling people how much they mean to them.

He's joking around a bit and saying he knows its early in November, but to tell the truth he doesn't really know what day it is. He really got the crowd going during this whole intro/banter segment. Finally, he said, "You know what people? Don't wait until Christmas Day to tell people how much you love them."

Crowd goes nuts over "A hug is warmer with you in it - Oh Baby that's a fact!"

---

He has no idea what day it is. Honestly has no idea.

Segue into DSIAFCD

Give looooooveeee

How could you wait another minute

a hug is warmer when you're in it.

Oh baby, that's a fact

and the crowd goes NUTS

---

We've got to give loooooooooooove.

Crowd is SCREAMING their appreciation.

Level and sound of screams just changed as he came back out to do GOOD NEWS.

---

Close your eyes and on bended knee - listen to an angel pray

Good News............Good News.........an angel brings Good News

This song shoots straight through the heart right into your soul. I hope Clay sings this every year to close out his Christmas shows.

post concert report...

during DSIAFCD...the back ups were daring him to do the falsetto but didn;t...must be tough in that altitude...

DSIAFCD came in too early again...and CLay was flustered in the beginning of his spiel.

during a hug was warmer...he did the EYE F*ck...
