They Can Hear Music, Sweet, Sweet Music

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, February 3, 2010

David Archuleta, Jordin Sparks and The Starkey Foundation are on a mission this week.  Their goal is to fit over 100 hearing-impaired children with hearing aids in the Miami area.  People who can hear tend to take their hearing for granted.  But for these children, most of whom have been deaf their entire lives, hearing is a gift that will transport them through the looking glass into a whole new world.

Can the hearing-impaired experience music?  The answer is a resounding YES!  Beethoven composed his 9th symphony after he lost his hearing.  In the movie, “Mr. Holland’s Opus”, I remember that deaf people “heard” music by feeling the floor vibrations and from flashing lights that corresponded to musical notes.  By turning up the bass on a stereo so that the vibrations can be felt through the floor, deaf people are able to dance to the rhythms they feel.  Hearing-impaired people do enjoy music; they just understand it differently, by feeling rather than by hearing.

At a VIP in December, David was asked to consider having someone sign the lyrics at his concerts to enhance the concert experience for his hearing-impaired fans.  He said that he had never thought about signing but he thought it made sense.  He mentioned that he knew that the deaf can “feel” the music vibration from the sound system.

Later in the afternoon there will be a special performance by David and Jordin.

Something wonderful is about to happen to a lucky bunch of kids in Miami.  After being fitted with hearing aids, these children will be able to hear, rather than just feel music.  They will hear the angelic sound of David’s voice.  I think back to how I felt when I heard David’s voice for the very first time on American Idol.  Imagine their reactions when they hear his healing voice for the first time!  Imagine if that was the first sound you ever heard.

(now the ears of my ears awake and now the eyes of my eyes are opened) e.e. cummings

The event will be webcasted today, February 3, starting at 11:45 am EST and 8:45 am PST at this link:

    Thank you for bringing this artticle here today. I do not know how I existed before hearing the Voice. I wish I could be there to witness the joy and excitement these children will share.
    Let’s hope that someone thought to bring many of David and Jordin’s CD’s to give to the new fans!

    Great post, bebereader, thank you!!

    I was at the Stroudsburg VIP where a hearing-impaired young woman asked the question about having someone “sign” David’s concerts. The way he moved closer and spoke slowly and clearly so she could understand him was very touching, as was his explanation of how the monks used musical vibrations and tones for healing. It makes me very sad that there are people who will never hear his Voice … what a worthy cause this is.

    bebe…Wonderful post… The wonders David’s music does for me, his “Voice” to be exact is so healing, something about his tone, IDK, but since I seem to need it daily I can’t imagine not hearing sound at all. What a miracle that these children will be able to hear for the first time and Jordin, whether knowingly or not invited David “The Voice” to sing to these children. They will experience hearing and seeing David, a double blessing.

    Brought this over from the previous thread….

    How awesome that the video gurus from the other side of the world are getting together! I wish I could see those vids JR sent but will watch at home asap. I know of a couple of fans I’ve met who are going to the picnic today and are going to be giving updates and getting pictures if possible. This is such a good cause! Bebe the article you wrote really made me think about what a blessing the gift of hearing is and how bereft of beauty and emotion my life would be without it. You know David had plans to be an Ear, Nose, and Throat MD before we set him straight on that career goal, so this is something close to his heart. Plus it’s charity, and charity for children, so he has got to be loving the heck out of this whole event. Oh yeah, and it’s with his bud Jordin too. So I’m happy knowing he’s happy and these children are going to be helped sooo much!

    Factor into this happiness equation the certain knowledge of new pics and vids coming our way and my cup runneth over. Water to the thirsty in the midst of a prolonged Archudrought.

    Drink deep.

    Thank you for the updates and pics! I didn’t get home from work to log on till right at the start of Apologize. He was incredible, added a few new notes, and of course, obliged by sweating, (always a crowd pleaser). Did you notice how Jordin stopped between songs to turn around and wipe the sweat from her face with a towel? Would David do that to us? No.

    Remember when Justin Bieber filled in for an absent Chris Brown to duet with Jordin Sparks on their smash hit “No Air”? Remember how much your ears hurt afterward? Well, we’re not trying to start a rivalry or anything like that, but, uh, take notes JB.

    David Archuleta stepped in for Breezy to perform “No Air” with Jordin Sparks today (February 3) at the Jordin Sparks
    Experience event in Miami, Florida, and showed everyone how it should be done.

    The performance was clearly a bit unrehearsed, but Archie was still ready. His powerful voice soared over his verse and blended perfectly with Jordin’s. And unlike Bieber, he felt no need to overdo it or try to out-sing Jordin. OUCH! Sorry…flashback.

    Check out the performance above, and if you’re feeling lucky, click here for JB’s version to compare.

    Well now! I feel sooooo much better! I was so in need of a “David Performing Live” fix! I didn’t even realize how much until I was finally able to see David in action when I got home. OH MY! It was so worth the anguish I went through at work today! The DUET OF THE YEAR (it’s a bit early in the year, but it’s going to be hard to top) was fantastic! I think David has almost met his match in amazing vocal range, in Jordin. One didn’t try to out-do the other. Of course for actual improvised vocalization, there is no other like David. 😀

    I wasn’t going to bring this up because it’s one of those things I just couldn’t understand and it just makes me very sad..I heard Justin Bieber is going to be one of the singers on the remake of “We Are The World” (for Haiti). To be honest, I have never heard him sing so it wasn’t that I though he wasn’t “good enough”, it was that I KNOW David is better than good enough and so deserving of being asked to participate and I wondered why he wasn’t invited, as far as we know. BUT after listening to JB on that duet with Jordin, I am almost at a loss for words..I just don’t get it! Surely Quincy has heard David & knows his voice would more than do justice to “We Are The World”? Of course, it could just be a rumor that Justin was invited and if so, well, it’s not that I think he shouldn’t do it, it’s just that I think David should also be included.
    That my rant for tonight. 😆 Forgive me, cause today was a GOOD day for David’s fans who have been suffering miserably through this six week old drought causing some of resort to counseling and anti-depressants! (o r l y????) 😆

    Good night all. For David,

    Dear lord,

    Please take care of David.
    Watch over him, protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.
    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    CLOAK DAVID IN YOUR PROTECTIVE ARMS always and please keep David and his voice healthy & strong as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen

    David, have a good & restful night’s sleep with sweet & happy dreams. Thank you for all you do and for who you are. Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always! TAKE CARE!

    Bebe, I was logged in and listening to the ustream this morning and ended up in tears a couple of times with the happenings that were taking place. The video of the children in the Dominican Republic required a make-up touch-up. The last speaker, I think his name is Bill (had white hair), made a comment that hit me right in the core of my soul. He said, “Poverty of spirit is the hardest kind of poverty”, referring to the broken spirits that come from having challenges like loss of hearing. There are so many different kinds of broken spirits and spirits in poverty that we can assist. We need to follow what one of the football players said, “find something you care about and are passionate about and become involved.” While we may not be able to become financially involved in something, we can always be willing to give our time and efforts to someone or something that needs help.

    Thanks bebe, for the beautiful words and pictures. They make me think about how lucky I am, and how much I take for granted. It’s time to ‘count [my] many blessings, name them one by one’ (from an LDS hymn “Count Your Many Blessings”.

    Knowing David,
    He probably heard about the cost of those Superbowl tickets and thought.. hmmm two tickets to a 4 hour game or 3 hearing aids for kids or 2 weeks of food for 4 families in Haiti .. and then he made his choice. *

    (disclaimer: I made my equivalences up because I have no idea how much those tickets are or the cost for feeding people in Haiti..but I bet David knows..)

    Who Needs Chris Brown? Jordin Sparks And David Archuleta Perform “No Air”

    The third annual Jordin Sparks Experience kicked off in Miami yesterday. The charity event—benefiting Jordin and her brother P.J.’s “I’m M.A.D., Are You?” campaign—saw the Season 6 American Idol winner pair up with Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta to belt out “No Air.” And just how ably did Archie fill Chris Brown’s shoes? We say: Chris who? Head below to watch two duet on stage at the Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach hotel.

    I am so glad David only danced like that for 4 seconds. I would have missed more than one appointment today if he had done it any longer! Yep, I sat here for an hour and half thru an appointment time waiting for the mgr ( I knew one would be imminent) and then watched it over and over again. When the merry go round started my whole world stopped!. Then when my appointment called me to tell me I had stood him up all i could say was ..”David, oh David! ” (it is a good thing his name is David…) and I could only APOLOGIZE And I ask myself IS THE WORLD READY FOR THIS? David is smart to reveal in small doses sorta like that man on the Princess Bride who drank the poison bit by bit so it would not kill him when he had the full dose…

In addition, the tribute video you posted, “When You Say You Love Me”, is another favorite. Abs, do we have it uploaded in TVU?

I asked her if she had ever considered making her own movies with the songs she’s sending me but she always said, no way, not me, I’m not techy enough to do that.

    Please take care of David.
    Watch over him, protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.
    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    CLOAK DAVID IN YOUR PROTECTIVE ARMS always and please keep David and his voice healthy & strong as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen

    David, have a good & restful night’s sleep with sweet & happy dreams. Thank you for all you do and for who you are. Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always! TAKE CARE!
