THIS FROM BROOKE WHITE ABOUT DAVID.
This guy, I can’t tell you the love and respect I have for him and his absolutely incredible talent which can only be surpassed by his character. Maybe he wins the #bestpersonIknow hashtag award. I’ve known him for years now since our Idol days, and have watched him grow from a shy teenage heart throb into such a great dude with such a solid sense of himself, God and all that is important in life. Since the return of his mission we’ve seen each other for a quick minute but have talked several times. Every one wants a piece of him, I knew people were beating down his door with requests and opportunities to lend his golden pipes so I was apprehensive at first to even ask him to do this, as a friend I try not to ask for anything :-) But given the nature of the project I figured it was worth asking, so I picked up the phone and gave him a call and told him about the cause. With in a few days he responded with an enthusiastic yes! Such great news! It just so happened that we would both be in Nashville at the same time, this in itself is a miracle.
So he came to Daniel Tashian’s studio on a Friday and the three of us wrote and recorded “Cherry Lane”, one of the happiest songs of the whole record…. stylistically it probably leans a bit more my direction with it’s throw back vibe, but the soothing sound of his voice on this call and answer chorus is what makes it completely magical. You don’t understand, his pitch perfect tone is at such a world class level, and it’s baffling, and yeah, nerve racking to even have my voice on the same track. Seriously, I get a tear whenever I hear him sing. Who doesn’t?! Anywho, “Cherry Lane” is a song for us grown ups, it was that first street I grew up on, it represents a simpler happy time and place when we’d “rather stay outside and play than stare down at the phone all day”. It’s emotional too though, David’s voice beckoning “we could go back, we could go back to where we were”. Thanks David for being a part of this. Also, funny side note, I was so excited that I called my parents from Nashville to tell them about the song the next day, and my mom said “oh honey, the street was actually called “cheery lynn”…. haha, ah well, cherry lane/ cheery lynn, tomato /tomahto close enough ;-)
We’ve reached over 60% of our goal! Please help spread the word and get us over the hump!

And David tweets!
And posts on his instagram!
“Never Grow Up” Charity Album : Links to this worthy cause are bolded.
I am supporting O.U.R. in their mission to save children from slavery by getting all of you involved in a charity album!
O.U.R., comprised largely of former NAVY Seals, Special Agents and members of the CIA, sets up and engages in missions with the purpose of rescuing kidnapped children from sexual slavery throughout the world. In October, one such mission resulted in 55 children being freed from sex slavery in Colombia. Another recent undercover mission into Haiti was documented thoroughly here to give supporters a sense of how much planning one of these missions takes.
Each mission costs roughly $20,000, so White’s goal of $25,000 in pledges will result in $20,000 being donated to help pay for one mission, with the rest of the pledges being used to cover production and shipping costs. But that’s not all. With Foundation Entertainment’s matching offer, a successful campaign will mean that two missions can be carried out instead of just one.

“His voice has matured and resonates with a silky, richness – it filled the entire venue and everyone was literally hypnotized and mesmerized by the depth of emotion in every single note. He got a little choked up at the end of the Spanish portion, and it was all I could do to hold the phone steady and not cry – even after all this time, David still has the power to move people to tears.”
“The bodyguards read the situation clearly and immediately surrounded David and Lupe and started moving them towards the exit. Then panic ensued as people realized David was leaving, and the crowd went into full Reno Solo Tour GA (General Admission) mode – if you were at Reno, you know what I mean – and it took everything in my power not to get knocked down and trampled! I was afraid for David – it was like the heyday of David Mania – and the bodyguards (I think there were six of them) linked arms and cut a path towards the exit and ushered David and Lupe into a waiting car where they were whisked off into the night, the red tail-lights getting smaller and smaller in the distance, and then he was gone.”
And then there’s this:
Continuing my journey on the #northshore of Oahu with @climb_works . Such a blast! Nice people, and got me to try things I probably wouldn’t have before. Highly recommend checking out these awesome places in Hawaii! #CLIMB #hangingaround #zipline #iheartHawaii #SummerbreezeinNovember

Little did we know when David left for this Military Tribute Tour to the Mid East that we would be the recipients of such an outpouring of updates. No, not from him so much, but apparently, he has people for that. We have been gifted with heart-wrenching, humorous, humbling blogs to laugh and cry over, photos to smile and sigh over, and even the snippet heard round the world of David singing “Bring Him Home.”

Maybe hardened soldiers can withstand the full impact of his voice on that song, but it is probably a mercy that his fans did not receive the full report. We are better prepared now and can anticipate the song with something close to aplomb. Hah!
We have received so much that the previous thread, which I thought would easily hold the contents of the entire trip, has become heavier than a C-17 cargo plane to load. So this thread is a much needed additional transport for supplies and we will see how far this one takes us.
There is a single thought I come away with from everything we have seen up to this point on this journey. It was brought home to me, everything I had read on the blogs, every picture, every tweet of this trip by a single photo taken by Jason Hewlett on the way to Afghanistan. The picture below (edit mine) snapped on the plane of the combat boots worn by the soldiers. The nameless, faceless, heroes. The men and women whose feet are ready to march off to hell if need be to keep the world free.
Please click on the link below to give them your thanks and a big thank you to Holly and FOD for organizing this for the fans as a way to give back.

A big thank you to them for going into harm’s way to bring hope and laughter to where it is needed most. Vaya con Dios. We are amazed by your generosity of spirit to carry this act of love to the troops, and for taking us all along for the ride.
