Story and Photos By Andy Argyrakis

Though he's best known as an "American Idol" finalist, Clay Aiken most recently made headlines again after having the best selling debut week for a Christmas album in SoundScan history. But besides just setting a statistic, the pop star's Merry Christmas With Love is also the subject of this month's "The Joyful Noise" tour, which reached sell out capacity in the windy city. Backed by an orchestra and two children's choirs, Aiken performed seasonal standards like "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "Silver Bells" and a cover of Steven Curtis Chapman's contemporary classic "The Music of Christmas."
