Joy To Our World – David Archuleta
Posted by bebereader on Sunday, December 19, 2010
There has been an outpouring of love and respect for David in the last few days on all of his fan sites, on you tube, Twitter, blogs, and in reviews of his performances as guest singer at the sold-out Mormon Tabernacle Choir‘s Christmas Show. Known for their outstanding performances, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir combined with the stellar vocals of David Archuleta is surely a match made in heaven.
I was unable to attend the performances, but that didn’t stop me from recognizing on comments and recaps that David outdid himself and has grown tremendously as a performer since we discovered him three years ago on a reality show. The strides he has taken since then have been remarkable and we are so honored and blessed to be his fans.
Let the comments, collectively, and taken from reviews and recaps all over the web, speak for themselves. Names have been removed but if you recognize yours, don’t hesitate to stand up and claim ownership! 😀
Fought traffic, crowds, ice, & snow last night for MoTab & David Archuleta. It was all worth it; now I’m ready for Christmas.
I know David was born for this purpose. He has arrived.
FLAWLESS. PERFECTION. UNREAL
This is beautiful. Thank you. I love the way that David is able to control his voice so well….to compliment other sounds and take power when called for. I can’t believe this is a teen.
Thursday night’s dress rehearsal “was magnificent,” said choir president Mac Christensen, “probably the greatest opening night we’ve ever had.” And it’s just going to get better, he said. “David was out of this world.”
He just did things with his voice I’ve never heard.
CFTH version of Silent Night. No choir just David + full orchestra. Intense & amazing.
Man walking behind me “I had low expectations of Archuleta, but he delivered. He was especially charming on that little spanish number”.
Wow – quite overwhelming just to watch the live streaming – @DavidArchie is out of this world, born to do what he just did 🙂
He touched something in me , I don’t know how to describe it but that’s what I’m feeling now.
That was the most beautiful Silent Night I have ever heard.
He showed off every facet of his voice tonight with such control!
There is no way i can describe what I just experienced,
Glory note x 1000000000 to end the show. His voice commands the choir & orchestra. What an unbelievable experience!
Now the world will know why we love David so much!
20,000 Standing O for @DavidArchie at MOTAB concert.
Totally bawled during Silent Night…he even did a little hunkerdown at “loves puuuure liiight” One word…stunning!!!!!
David Archuleta, you are a genius! That was the most amazing beautiful thing I’ve ever heard in my life!
Seeing all of them together on stage and hearing him reach that note with the choir was something that no words can describe.
I feel like history is being made! What a wonderful moment!!! (sigh) David is all grown up. And he is beautiful. There was an electrical charge throughout the building whenever David was on stage. His glow was extreme. He looked and sounded so much more mature than I have ever seen him. He made me smile, he made me cry. He gave me chills.
He was beyond anyone’s expectations.
SilentNight by @DavidArchie is the best SilentNight sung by any artist ever!! In the History of Christmas Music!!
Walking in a crowd of 1000′s! @DavidArchie’s name is heard everywhere!
Holy smokes! He’s amazing! That last note. WOO. -dies-
WooHoo David, you sound glorious. So this is the start of some incredible joys to come. Those notes are spectacular. Bravo David. You are a STARRR!!!
He is most definitely incomparable! What a genuine talent and what an honor to perform with the Choir! He shines like a star!
What a linguistic ear, is there anything he can’t sing!
Is this spanish song? or opera?
He looks so humbled and amazed being in the stage and with those people watching him. His VOICE soars high like the angels in heaven above. You can feel that this is what he wants, to share his talent in a more meaningful way…
Absolutely out of this world performance.
What a dream come true this must be for David!!! Only 19 years old and already headlining holiday event with a world-renowned choir!!!
I seriously felt like I needed oxygen after Silent Night.
So. Worth. The. Trip.<3
He certainly deserved it. I would’ve stood there all night if it would’ve brought him back out again!
MoTabChoir Great show with @DavidArchie last night. Another one tonight. And don’t worry, it will be on CD and DVD next year.
…an unexpected (by me) side benefit to all this is that this invitation and his performance at such a well known, world-class level will open even more national and international doors for him and give him greater recognition for his musicianship among the musicians of the world..
1/4 through Silent Night, me and an old man next to me started sobbing.
All indications are that David has stepped into a new realm. To those fans who are traveling home today and tomorrow, have a safe journey. And to David, thank you for all the joy you bring to our world. We are bursting with pride.
