Aiken Visits Tsunami Victims

AMERICAN IDOL runner-up CLAY AIKEN flew to south-east Asia earlier this month (MAR05) to visit children affected by 26 December's (04) devastating Indian Ocean tsunami.

The 26-year-old INVISIBLE singer, who became a UNICEF ambassador late last year (04), recently made his first field mission when he travelled to Indonesia and Malaysia, where he viewed tsunami relief efforts and toured camps for homeless survivors.

And the special education major made a point of visiting children at a primary school in the province of Aceh, where he danced with students and took part in their classes.

He says, "I thought to myself, 'I've seen tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes - throw them all together and maybe I could understand the scope of this thing.' But when you finally get on the ground, there's no way to describe it."
