American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken returned to his old school in North Carolina, to present a $20,000 (GBP11,111) donation and perform during halftime at a men's basketball game.

Aiken, wearing jeans and a green No. 49 Charlotte basketball jersey with Aiken on the back, performed THE WAY and INVISIBLE at halftime of the UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHARLOTTE's 8165 win over EAST CAROLINA.

Aiken waived his appearance fee in exchange for the donation, which was paid by private sponsors.
