    I’m anticipating tomorrow with excitement! Saturday afternoon is still 36 hours away, but I can do it. 🙂 I’m so grateful to have spent the time with my daughter and one son and their families yesterday, but am ready to travel home. I must be getting really old, because the confusion has peaked and I’m ready to leave it behind. OR, perhaps, I’m just excited for tomorrow!

    Thanks for the gorgeous photos here so far, and that one in #3 stops a person’s heart! 🙂

    Have a great day all and remember there is turkey in the fridge! 😀

    Congratulations to those who have tickets for the concert this weekend, including Tawna, Dayzee and Bluesky!

    Do You Hear What I Hear gave me chills and goosebumps. That minor key is amazing. His voice with the piano and cello, it just goes together perfectly. Now I want an album of David with the Piano Guys. He has the ear for this type of music. It’s hard to sing a well known song that’s not written in a minor key, that has been arranged in a minor key. If you take one phrase out of context, it sounds out of tune, but when you hear the whole arrangement, it’s perfect. Minor keys have always been my favorites. Can’t stop watching it.

    “Believe”

    Children sleeping, snow is softly falling
    Dreams are calling like bells in the distance
    We were dreamers not so long ago
    But one by one we all had to grow up
    When it seems the magic’s slipped away
    We find it all again on Christmas day

    Believe in what your heart is saying
    Hear the melody that’s playing
    There’s no time to waste
    There’s so much to celebrate
    Believe in what you feel inside
    And give your dreams the wings to fly
    You have everything you need
    If you just believe

    Trains move quickly to their journey’s end
    Destinations are where we begin again
    Ships go sailing far across the sea
    Trusting starlight to get where they need to be
    When it seems that we have lost our way
    We find ourselves again on Christmas day

    Believe in what your heart is saying
    Hear the melody that’s playing
    There’s no time to waste
    There’s so much to celebrate
    Believe in what you feel inside
    And give your dreams the wings to fly
    You have everything you need
    If you just believe [x4]

    Just believe

    “Believe” is a 2004 song from the Christmas-themed performance capture film The Polar Express. The words and music were written by Glen Ballard and Alan Silvestri, and the song was performed by Josh Groban. The song is included on the film soundtrack.

    When he was first introduced there was a standing ovation for David. It was obvious the front rows in the audience were die hard David fans. And he was definitely pleased by their (our) welcome.

    My granddaughter and I stopped across the street for dinner before the performance. The waiter asked if we had come for David. He said every one he had waited on told him they had David tickets.

    My favorite was Do You Hear What I hear. It was hauntingly beautiful.

    Dearest friends,

    David was incredible last night!! When Anodrlurker says “no one sings Christmas songs like David does!” she is absolutely right, as we have all witnessed!!
    We were sitting on the second row center and it could not have been more perfect. When it was over I had to keep pinching myself that we had just experienced
    something that special and memorable.

    When David’s name was first announced and he walked out on stage, and everyone rose to their feet in love, adoration, respect and gratitude, well it was quite a moment. The evening
    was his and his alone, even though the other performances were entertaining and special, you knew the audience was waiting with bated breath (I know we five were) until David
    showed up on that stage again!!

    We were so happy too to see ShellyFOD, 8throwcenter, and others taking pictures and videos!! They were on the same row we were and about ten minutes after David sang “The First Noel”
    Shawna, sitting next to me, looked on YouTube and there was the video of David singing “The First Noel.” We grinned and knew that from then on it was all taken care of—thank you gals
    for taking care of us all. My phone had died so I knew I was no help to anyone:(

    There were five in our group, Shawna, Pam, Julie, Claudia and myself. We had dinner across the street at Olive Garden, then meandered over to the Theatre. The first person
    I saw when we arrived was Bluesky and we had a warm hug for each other. She is my personal angel (I have mentioned to you before, the story of her loving and giving heart along
    with her son’s, to me when they drove to my home, sang to me, and read poems to me, (that Bluesky had written) when I was so very ill with my cancer) anyway, it was so glorious to
    see her again!! My daughter, Amber, and her two children then arrived and it was time to be seated. Excitement was certainly in the air as we made our way to our seats.

    Now I HAVE to mention what happened at the end of the concert because we giggled over it later when we went back to Olive Garden for dessert and squealing!! As the show ended
    and all were standing as David and the others took their bows, we were all staring at David and as he slowly walked off the stage, he looked at all of us one by one on that second row
    and waved to us!!! We knew he knew each one of us on that row (how could he not, haha) and his gesture to us was as heart warming as it gets!!

    Guess I could go on and on (you know me) but suffice it to say that it will be worth your purchasing a DVD when it comes out as the whole evening was a very special Christmas tribute.
    But the best part was all the love felt and shown to David and his love given back to us.

    Blessings to all,

    I also want to add that I am so happy to hear you are doing so much better after all you’ve been through. So glad you had a wonderful evening! 🙂

    hahaha I guess you guys can tell I’m on David overload this morning. Hubby’s at work and I have the music from last night blaring through the house. #itsagoodday 😀

    Oh!! I forgot one more thank you! To David: I can’t say thank you enough for sharing your incredible gift with us. ♥ You warm our hearts and brighten our days.

    Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow – from the beautiful tailored suit to the stage presence to his glorious vocal musical instrument – amazing!

    Lynella #59, love your comment, DYHWIH my favorite of the night too, a.m.a.z.i.n.g. The arrangement, the cellist and pianist, haunting and spellbinding. Another example of why he is separate from the pack. I would love to hear more of that.

    Thanks Abrra for our gift of mp3’s, that will be my new Christmas album for the season.

    I am so happy to see him showcasing those immense vocal skills and his stylizing. You hear tons of covers and cringe a little thinking “they kinda butchered it.” But he has an incredible gift for taking it and making it so uniquely his own, but keeping it recognizable and within comfortable parameters.

    What do you do with a pop/rock star, non-trained-but-i-can-do-it-anyway classical singer, latino crooner, gospel singer, soulful r&b/jazz artist all wrapped up in a salsa dancer? Idk, but I hope they can figure it out cause I want them all!

    Seeing the trees in the video behind him during the Glorious performance made me think he is small in stature, but when he sings he is as tall as a mighty redwood.

    just one more little thing – close up of DYHWIH 4:08-4:12 – the smile of appreciation at the incredible talent of the cellist.

  91. David knows so many fans after his touring and return performances in many of the well known cities and countries.

    I think that we would have really surprised him if even more fans from all over had been there….

    They say that singers often look out into the audience to find familiar faces as it helps with their focus when singing.

    I see the names of long time fans who were there who have been great supporters in many ways during his early career years on the stage.

    So everyone else who couldn’t be there and would love to have been attending surely will be there next time.

    Emme, I loved that smile for the cellist. The cello fellow was extremely talented. It is great to see such talent working together.

    Sky, it is Christmas morning. These are the bestest gifts for me. It is wonderful to come here and be able to see everything repeated as often as you wish. Thanks to all for their efforts.

    I had forgotten how his voice can make you feel wrapped in a blanket of “life is good”. That intangible feeling he bestows that everything will be all right.

    Sorry, my brain is scattering, but I am off to another not-a-David concert and I am unable to gather thoughts

    Sky, it is true David recognizes his fans. It was as Pattirae said. At the finale he looked at each of us and waved. He was situated at stage left and slowly walked across the entire stage to stage right and made a conscious effort to include us all. And yes, we did appreciate 🙂

    Lynnella, I got goosebumps just reading your description of what David is doing! I’ll have to research that minor key thing.

    Pattirae, OH MY GOSH!!!! David saw all of you and acknowledged you all! I so wanted confirmation of that for so many reasons., I’m accepting the fact that I couldn’t be there but it hurts. It reminds me of the time Silverfox, Sandybeaches, Angelica, Marcia and myself at Motab all stood in front of him and he looked at each one of us and said you’re all here. So glad you were there to represent. Our time will come, I’m sure of it.

    Dayzee, You said it so beautiful “wrapped in a blanked of life is good”, the archuleta is good at that and it feels so good to be reminded of it.

    Emmegirl! Yes, to every word you said!!!! So glad to see you!

    Claire, Awwww I love this, “it is true David recognizes his fans”

    I’m floating in the clouds listening over and over to each song, wow just wow.

    Djafan – David is a master at minor keys. Think of What Child is This and the song he wrote Falling. I’m not sure if that whole song is minor, but it has a lot of phrases that are. Minor keys are always kind of melancholy and more dramatic. I think David really has a flair for the dramatic. I could see him in a Broadway play. Despite what Simon says, that’s a good thing. David has the most distinctive voice of all the young singers out there today. And, he has a talent for knowing just what to do with a song. His ad libs, hums, and all the rest are always perfect and in perfect key. He’s just amazingly talented and blessed.
