Former American Idol star Clay Aiken will speak at a gay rights rally in North Carolina this weekend.

The singer was to read a prepared speech, but has now written his own words for the rally in his hometown of Raleigh on Saturday, February 27. The original speech was highly political, something Aiken was not comfortable with.

“I don’t feel like this is the place to be horribly politically charged and bash people and talk about the wrongs that have been done,” he said. “My goal is to be hopeful, that it’s time for everyone to have equal rights.”

The gala will also feature lesbian actress Meredith Baxter.
