National Inclusion Project 2012 Gala - Making a Difference  

I have not had the honor of being able to attend a NIP Gala.  I am adding this to my bucket list.

From all reports from last night, this was another very successful event.

The Gala was held at the National Theatre in Washington DC.  

Arsenio Hall was MC and did a wonderful job.  Arsenio said that he and Ruben knew that Clay let them win.  :)

There were three wonderful Gala Award recipients.

Ruben Studdard sang Super Star, Flying Without Wings and a duet with Clay of More Than Words.

Debbie Gibson sang Maybe This Way, Proud Mary and a duet with Clay of Lost In Your Eyes.

Scattered throughout the night, Clay sang Because You Love Me, Everything I Don't Need, To Love Somebody, The Real Me and Invisible.  

Dee Snider had a scheduling conflict and could not attend.  He did make a video introducing the Live Auction.  The auction included two dinners with Clay.  Arsenio surprised Clay with an auction of  two front row tickets to the first week of his new show. Clay is to sing and do anything else he wants on the show.

Here are some photos.
