    I just played all of these and tried to be objective but there is not one bad performance here. Not one! When David sings a patriotic song he gives respect to the song and to our country. He continues to fill me with so much pride.

    Thanks for posting these, dja!

    To be fair, they both had some good moments. But David is superb from start to finish, always perfect pitch and never searches for the note and is just glorious. Hate to say it but Carrie had me shrinking away from the screen with my hands over my ears at the ending.

    Thank you DJAFAN… wow.. all in one place. I can’t wait to listen to every single one of these again! I have loved Patriotic music ever since I saw my giant-of-a-man Daddy cry in church on a Sunday during America the Beautiful. For many years I taped the SSB performances from the SuperBowl on one tape, just because I love to hear people sing it so much. I think David’s Utah Jazz performance is my favorite because it was the first time I had ever heard a singer hit the high note- crescendo? on “WAVE.” first and then again on “FREE” It’s so amazing to me that with as many talents that have sung that song, they can all still creatively find ways to make it ‘their own.” When David sings Patriotic songs, the songs are not about DAVID but about the country. I can’t recall one other singer who has sung these songs with as much reverence, and as little ego , as David, and I think that alone puts his performances in a class by themselves.

    Emi,

    You put into words what I have thought about David’s performances of these patriotic songs that, aside from his amazing vocals, makes them so special. You can’t help feel that it’s not about him showcasing himself or grandstanding. It’s about the songs and what they mean and represent in blood and tears. Here is an Eagle Scout singing about America and it is obvious in every phrase and powerful note that he loves this country very much.

    I love this post. Thank you, listening to David was just what I needed. After listening over again to Carrie and Queen Latifah it makes me realize just how amazingly beautiful and heartfelt Davids versions of the Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America are. Normally I think Carrie is great but. . . Yikes! Ok, i will try to stay positive. Once again, David’s performances are simply breathtaking.

    I did like Queen Latifah’s performance with the children singing at the end – pretty nice twist. Carrie, however…yikes!

    Off topic, but did you guys notice this:

    In the Duet #1 above left (where Jordin’s in the red dress)there’s a time when David is whaling along with his eyes closed and doesn’t see Jordin closing in on him. When he opens his eyes, he’s a bit startled for a split second. It’s at 2:46 on the video above. It seemed more evident earlier on – perhaps on a different version. In any event, it’s pretty cute and the simultaneous howl, “Nooooooo Aaaaair!” that follows is just beyond amazing.

    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!

    And SF hoping and praying all is well with you…God Bless you.

    That same magical moment – the simultaneous howl, “Noooooooooo!” is at 3:05 in Duet #2 (above left). Jordin taps David and then they let loose.

    Oh what I wouldn’t give to witness that moment live – maybe even standing right on stage with them – wearing my invisibility cloak, naturally!

    So now I’ve got to watch this one a few more times and put myself (and abrra’s wand) to bed!

    That is my absolute favorite moment from that performance. I have to keep rewinding. The way their voices blend perfectly on that wail…I think what they actually sing together is “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!” To die for ear candy.

    My thoughts below come after listening to David sing in all of the great videos Djafan has given to us.

    I am certain that David is trying to teach me to be more patient as the days continue without word of his plans and rightfully so as he did have us completely spoiled.

    But I am having to have additional patience waiting on the world to fully recognize and appreciate the value of the purity and perfection of his voice. What I see from all of the ‘talent’ that is presented to us is that the world is totally immersed in flamboyant fanfare (remember Pink upsidedown at the grammys, ribbons for clothes, with water running all over the place?).

    I even find it difficult to read about David being compared to anyone (of the male species) right now as it seems quite out of place…I am going to continue to work on my patience…work on my patience!! Come on world…change.

    David is THE VOICE to give our beautiful SSB and GBA the beauty and reverence they deserve. I believe David gives these songs the full appreciation that they deserve, the way he sings the words makes you think about what they are really saying and how we feel about this country. Just my two cents.

    You think there will be a look, a phrase, a move, or a note from “No Air” we haven’t all memorized by the time the next tour comes? We have disected his clothes, his physique, his belt, his charm or lack of, his swagger, his dancing, his smile, his head bobbying, his puffy cheek, his tone, timbre, pitch and pronunciation of words and wails.

    I’m back & I’ve missed sooooo much this last week! My home computer which is used solely by my son was infected by a bad virus a few weeks ago so he started using my laptop when I was at work and any other time I was not on it myself. Anyway, I started having problems with my laptop as well until I couldn’t access the Internet at all. It seems to be OK now, though I still can’t access some sites. I wasn’t even and still am not getting any tweets on my phone which would have at least let me know a little about what was going on. 😉

    Then one of our cats, Bernie got sick and has been in the hospital since last Wednesday morning. 😦 He has a urinary blockage caused by an infection & has been catheterized while being treated with antibiotics. He will most likely need surgery when the infection has cleared. Without the surgery, the blockage will recur and will eventually be fatal. I wanted to make sure if he has the surgery, that he will have no more problems. The Vet assures me my kitty will be fine after the surgery. We’ve had Bernie since he was a few weeks old. He’s never been outside and has never wanted to go outside. He’s almost eight now and is not a typical cat. He has a personality and loves to be cuddled and petted. We were trying to ready ourselves to let him go to keep him from suffering, but he’s been sedated and is fairly comfortable. At least no longer in pain. Our other cat Joe, has been moping and missing Bernie. This has not been a good week at all. And now here in my city, it’s snowing and we are expecting about 6″ of the white stuff.

    Wasn’t David in Florida? And now he’s in LA? I hope he has some warm clothing cause the high temps this week will only be in the 60’s, kinda cool for LA isn’t it? Looks like he had a productive day today. I sure have missed him. **sigh**

    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!
