    I’m sure going to miss him this year. He made my Christmas Merry. He is the Voice for Christmas. Loved these videos. I’ll be here #2014 for sure. God Bless Him and keep him safe.

    David was born to do Christmas music! The emotion comes from deep inside of him and he conveys it beautifully to those to whom he’s singing! Can’t wait for future Christmas concerts!! Martha ♥

    Angelica… can we have your angel vid with this song? Pat-a-pan? I love that one so much!

    Goldenjane. Amen.

    No cat ever looked so satisfied as DA looks after he sings Christmas music. Difference?
    DAs’ feathers sprout from his shoulders instead of his mouth.

    (sorry, couldn’t resist! was up late last night. *_*)

    Oh my goodness!! I forgot how much I loved the angel video to Pat-A-Pan. Thank you bluesky for remembering it and to Abbra for posting it. I sometimes try to listen to other Christmas CD’s I’ve had through the years but it never works—-I only want to listen to my David for all things Christmas. I am really missing him a lot during this Christmas season. Well, time to go watch Silent Night again while holding my 2 week old grandson:)

    Love to all,

    Pattirae

    Between the top picture and the videos (all of them) I’m feeling very nostalgic. David is definitely the angel at the top of my tree.

    Thanks Angelica and Abrra for the videos, and also for the Merry Christmas wish. :)

    I’m wishing a very Merry Christmas season to all of you here at The Voice. It’s such a warm, fireside place to be. If it weren’t mid-day, I’d go cozy up in a blankie with some hot chocolate.

    Only 76 more days ’til we’re out of the 400′s.

    Try not to have a smile from ear to ear for 1 minute and 13 seconds…. I dare ‘ya!

    I love all the videos posted. I would love to hear David sing The Voice, sung by the Celtic Women, but he probably wouldn’t because he’s too humble and might think he’s calling himself “the voice”, which of course we know he is. (rambling sentence) Just saw a video on mjsbigblog of Phil Phillips singing This Christmas. Couldn’t resist commenting and putting a link to David’s Santa Rosa performance of it. No comparison. Didn’t see any other comments regarding David’s performance of this song. To me, no one sings it better than the Archuleta. If you agree, go comment.

    Tawna21 – that is funny with your 76 days left to be out of the 400′s. I am just so happy that it will be 2013 because in my mind I can say: Great! David will be back “next year”. That seems so much closer to me.

  12. Spirit said

    Tawna21…..I took your dare and I failed. Grinned from ear to ear the entire time!

    In the last thread, Jackryan4da.mentioned the lyrics to one of my favorite Eva Cassidy songs….I Know You By Heart. It’s so beautiful and always reminds me of David and the way he has touched our hearts. Here is a youtube video with the lyrics for those who are not familiar with the song

  13. Dayzee said

    Tawna, I took your challenge of no smiling while watching the video, but failed miserably. Don’t know what made me think I would be a winner with that. And yes, 76 more days and we are out of the 400′s. But who is counting?

    Loved the videos up top, Angelica. TY. How lovely Orla’s voice is, but my ears still listen for David.

    The feathers in my tummy keep reminding me David is right now preparing to sing tonight. That lucky Gladys. So happy for her. And for David. And for me.

  14. djafan said

    I had never heard that song or any Celtic music until David lol Perfect for David. I loved his performances with Orla. David is so good at harmonizing. His voice soars and soothes simultaneously.

    Love that picture up top.

    I love his voice here.

  15. djafan said

    Holiday campaign on the OS!!

    David is part of the “Bench” Holiday Campaign! Fans in the Philippines can look forward to seeing this festive picture at “Bench” stores around the country.

    Thanks for all the beautiful Christmas songs and performances here. Can’t wait for David Christmas concert in 2014!!!!

  17. Abrra said

    I saw this quote today. It sounds very much like what David said about his mission and how he will be changed. It must be true that great minds think alike. :)

    I loved it when David sang with Orla so I had to buy the video and cd so I can hear and watch it when I want. David enhances every song that has ever been written! ♥

    #14 Loving those close ups! :)

    Was lurking on Unplugged tonight…came in later and didn’t want to interrupt Gladys. ♥ So glad you had another wonderful time and thanks for sharing!

  20. bebereader said

    We literally had to pull ourselves out of Unplugged tonight after Gladys left and after we watched half a dozen songs from the MkOC tour. While most artists throw in one or two songs on their setlist if their tour happens to be at Christmas time, David can carry an entire Christmas tour and setlist on his own because he breathes new life into old favorites and gives each song a life of it’s own. I’ve been to shows on all of David’s tours but my favorites are the shows on the Christmas tours, CFTH and MKOC.:)

  21. pocoelsy said

    Angelica,

    Thank you for putting up those exquisite and exceptional performances from David and Orla…heavenly <3. We don't celebrate Christmas in our household but I've enjoyed Christmas music since I was young ..they're fun !! I have to admit tho that I didn't know the depth of those songs until David sings em, the way he put his spin in each word ..it enhance the depth of emotions in each song…I dunno how to explain it, he not only sings them but while singing em he's also telling the stroy so effortlessly efficiently and heartfelt, his vocal…beautiful…sublime…ok i stop rambling now hehe.

    Just want to say David opened my eyes (ears) , he takes Christmas songs to new level for me.

    Hope Gladys has a safe trip and the time of her life, she's one lucky fan and totally deserves it all :)

  22. Angelica, thanks for the fab video post♥ When all is said and done, watching and listening to our David sing, no words necessary.
    who knew, when we first boarded the David train 4 years ago ,that he and his voice would become a “Christmas/ Holiday” tradition. He is such a gift♥

  23. betsy said

    Let the Festival of Lights begin. Happy Hanukkah to all who are celebrating xo <3

  24. BellaGoGetter said

    So what songs did D sing last night? Same as last week?

  25. sugarpie said

    Really love those videos. Thanks.

  26. Angelica said

    You’re very welcome, Sugarpie! ♥

    Bella, he sang the same songs but more intense this time because he was more confident and fluent and she was placed in reserved seating on the second row right in front of him. After each song he shushed the audience with a finger to his lips and a little smile. She met him again and made him laugh gloriously when he saw the funny/cute gift she gave him. More of the night to be posted and I don’t want to ruin the read but will just share this much translated from chat.

    I ran into President MacArthur and he gave me a hug and kiss. I’d never spoken to him before and he told me, “Ahhh you are the one from Argentina.”

    Me: Yes President

    Him: You know something, I always tell Elder Archuleta that he has the possibilities of success. haha!

    They are expecting her for the Rancaqua devotional on Sunday, told her to come early and that it will be especially beautiful!

  27. mlpb3 said

    Angelica – Thanks so much for the info!! I missed most of chat last night doing Christmas stuff! Can’t wait for the recap! Love you, Gladys! You are blessed! Martha :)

    Abrra…

    About the sidebars. I was wondering…. do you have a nice pic from his appearance with DC at the Ford theater? I so loved that appearance and how they were together – with the hat! – and the jacket. If it does not mess up some pre-formed system you have going…. ? The sidebars look fantastic!!

    Angelica…

    Who can meet Elder A. without becoming a fan? It is no surprise to us if the Mission President wants to join! Send him a “Voice” button, will ya?!

  29. mlpb3 said

    Yeah for President McArthur!! He recognizes what is important in the long run! Thanks so much to him!! Martha :)

  30. mlpb3 said

    Could one of the mods email me? Thanks. Martha

  31. Angelica said

    Martha, you have mail.

  32. mlpb3 said

    Angelica – Thanks, I responded. Martha

    The sidebar space is used for David. If I added pictures with others included, there would be less David. Yes there is method in my madness.

    Thanks for the tidbits today Angelica, I got my wish.

  35. stenocruiser said

    33. Abrra — maybe one exception? lol — no coal in your stocking, huh?

  36. bluesky said

    Abrra..

    Well, I just thought there was one of David from that event? In the jacket?
    No worries!!

    Whatever you have on your mind “works for me”. Btw, I love the last one on the left. It is like: okay! you made it through all of these… “Hi there”!

  37. Abrra said

    Bluesky

    I put one of David on the right sidebar as requested :)

    Abrra…

    I just got home from our family Christmas party.
    And here is a delightful surprise!!

    Thank you so very much. I hope I have not messed up your pattern (which I am really looking forward to hearing about!). That is one of my favorite memories of Mr. DA. It was so good to see him so relaxed for a change and just goofing off a bit. Thank you again!

    Thanks for posting. I removed your original comment because you had broken links. Now the videos are showing up :)

    We didn’t post because we were discussing it. They are of a public event so it’s fine.

    What a glorious Sunday! David is the voice and what a voice. He sounds and looks amazing. Hoping the rest of David’s performances appear, I saw many cameras so please load them up!

  44. pocoelsy said

    Abrra,

    Thank you Oh soo much for the “Chilean Treats” :D you are as swift as typhoon lol. Now it starts to feel a lot more like “Christmas” we used to know :). Good to see that he is happy, healthy, that voice of his is …even more beautiful..if that’s possible…Oh my heart <3 :)

  47. marlie7 said

    Tears – listening to O Holy Night and just can’t stop – it is a vortex all by itself. He is magnificent!

  48. Thanks Abrra for the info :) I’d love to join the Unplugged if the connection allow, I’m in Bangkok now with limited internet access we don’t have wifi at my mom house :(, I only lurk once in a while …today is such a good day that I came out of lurkdom haha to “see” the current David, can’t explain how happy I’m !!!

  49. Dayzee said

    Oh my! I lost my internet yesterday and spent the night wondering what was happening with my David friends on Saturday night chat. Then nothing this morning. Well, this was certainly worth waiting for. I am just stunned. Christmas presents I had not dared hope for.

    Gladys was correct in her description of David becoming more and more.

  50. bluesky said

    Oh Hoy NIght really lit up my morning! Thanks to whoever made this available and to the great admins here who always take the time to work together to bring us the best. How I appreciate your team-work, hearts and integrity. <3 <3 <3

    always

    (Dear Elder A. — Did I hear a deeper bass note there? Or is your heart just getting bigger and bigger?)

  51. emmegirl14 said

    Mamma mia, thanks Grammyj for the videos. Feels so gooood to see him, hear him.

    O Holy Night, goodness.

  52. Angelica said

    That O Holy Night in espanol, the glory notes, the passion in his voice was beyond any version of that song he’s ever done. It was ethereal, rapturous, unbelievable. Hallelujah!

  53. betsy said

    O Holy Night. Beyond anything.
    He took us all to church this morning. <3

  54. betsy said

    Also, it couldn’t have been an accident that D was paired up with nothing less than a concert pianist.
    Bravo, Elder Coello. Bravo. He is truly amazing.
    Flailing over the beauty this morning. What a good day. :)

  58. bebereader said

    Heavenly.
    That’s the word I’m assigning to these videos from Chile.
    Thanks for posting, GrammyJ.

    I thought O Holy Night in English was magnificent.
    I was not prepared for David;s version en Espanol, It broke the stratosphere, especially the note at 2:04!!!
    Did you hear his voice reverberating at 2:29?
    Who is this guy??? ;)

  59. djafan said

    THE PRAYER!!!!

  60. stenocruiser said

    I was able to catch the three videos before I left for church this morning — I must confess my mind wandered during mass thinking about them (forgive me Lord) and I was so anxious to get home to see them again and again (which I have done of course). What a blessing they were caught on video and uploaded — thank you. Has David (Elder Archuleta) ever sounded better? Breathtaking, stunning, out-of-this-world perfect. And now, to hear The Prayer duet — just glorious.

    Apparently this is the girl who sang the duet with him. She is very talented.

  61. mlpb3 said

    Steno – yes, her names is Rebecca Lopez. She does such an incredible job with him on The Prayer! Martha ♥

    Merry Christmas to us all!! We must have been very, very good to get these very beautiful songs from David! ♥ My heart is so full of pride for this young man, I’ve got the goosies and the tears! Oh, Man!! Never did I ever think that we would be blessed with his wonderful voice this Christmas! Thank you, thank you everyone that had their hands in bringing this gift to us! ♥♥

  65. silverfox said

    These videos have me almost at a loss for words. Only David’s magnificent voice can change an otherwise dreary day into one of immense joy & comfort. He is simply magical. One of a kind magical.

    After having attended David’s Christmas concerts for the last three years, including four CFTH concerts in 2009, all four MOTAB concerts in 2010 and four MKOC concerts in 2011, this Christmas was starting to feel not like Christmas at all. So if these videos are all we can get this year, I’m going to be humble & thankful. This is a gift I didn’t expect and those are the best kinds of gifts.

    His Oh Holy Night in Spanish is stunningly beautiful. The Prayer…can’t say enough. I’m truly astonished! Totally & completely phenomenol. I only wish Noche de Paz (not Luz), Silent Night had been a solo because he let her overpower him at times. He’s generous that way.

    All in all, the best gift so far this season!

  66. betsy said

    The Prayer <3
    This was like a beautiful musical.
    With more heart.

  67. ArchieSue said

    Does anyone know what time the concert start tonight? Maybe they will stream it again and we might be able to watch it live? Thank you in advance. :) OH happy day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  68. mlpb3 said

    Archie Sue – I believe it starts 5:00 pm Eastern time

  69. “Christmas At Home”, tour with David Archuleta, 2014 (where all previous cities on past tours will be revisited).

    Featuring David, singing in Spanish for some, with Latin, French and English Carols. I am sending this thought out to the universe…will you be there??

    Jans & Silverfox, I believe that this may be the very best Christmas present and what a surprise. Truly beuatiful and unexpected…There may be more to follow! The hook will be out for me so I had better go…

  73. emmegirl14 said

    Betsy, “The Prayer <3
    This was like a beautiful musical.
    With more heart."….

    …be still my heart. You described it perfectly! She has a beautiful voice, what an incredible duet. (3:06, his voice, kills me.) I can't get over this performance.

    He is singing with even more passion, depth. He sounds glorious, he is glorious.

    SB, Christmas At Home 2014, I'll be there.

    Bringing this comment over from FOD by Rapport.

    Rapport says:
    December 9, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    O Holy Night. More like O Holy Right. Is there anything this man can’t sing? Any language he can’t learn in two hours? Any genre he can’t champion? Any heart he can’t melt? Sheesh.

    David goes — and takes you with him — to places where notes have no names and joy is the only true emotion. I think his Spanish rendition in Chile is the best version of O Holy Night I have ever heard. By him or by anybody else.

    And, I agree with Blisskasden. David “cannot escape his greatness, no matter how humble he is.”

    Oh, and to answer the questions in the first paragraph…NO.

  75. emmegirl14 said

    *the high note he holds at the end of The Prayer*

    thanks Abrra, will be listening nonstop.

  76. ArchieSue said

    Thanks mlpb3 for answering my question. I just got back online and it’s already 5:34pm and I don’t see a live stream for tonight. It’s ok, all the goodies from yesterday and today will suffice.
