David Archuleta & A Celebration of Christ ~ An Interfaith Concert ~ Shows 2 and 3

 Here are two playlists from last night’s performances.

From last night’s show:

“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!!” ~Pattirae

 “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. :)” ~Dayzee

And to those fans who are lucky enough to go to tonight’s shows, have a great time! Be sure to let us know all about it in comments here.

    This for Gladys:

    When I settled in my seat today I remembered I was supposed to check the size of David’s hands for Gladys. And I fully intended to do so. But when he started to sing The First Noel I could not get past his face. And then it was Did You Hear What I Hear and the same thing happened. And Glorious once again. When he came out to sing Silent Night the lights shone on those massive fingers and I thought Yes Gladys, his hands are bigger than ever!! You always notice the David stuff. I tried to take a pic for you so you could see those hands from my viewpoint, but I was all fumbly and David would not let go of my eyes and so I could not focus. On anything.

    After Silent Night I was flat out bawling. How embarrassing. FODonna gave me a hug and got me through that..

    This was the show I had an extra ticket for because my granddaughter could not go, so I went by myself There were so many David friends it was no problem.. Tawna was there at the beginning and I looked for her after the show but she is so darned tiny I could not find her. She should wear hunter orange clothing. Shelley was a couple of seats down from me doing her ninja camera act. She is awesome. Oddity was there with family and friends.

    We seem to have started a new tradition. When David is first introduced we all stand and wave.

    My daughter is picking me up in a few minutes for tonight’s show. She does not know I have seen it twice already.

    Hope I get home in time for Abrra’s special night of videos.

    Dayzee, love your recap and so happy you are seeing David 3 times!! And I only wanted that one little ticket! 🙂 Just wait til 2015! 🙂 It really is fun to read all the recaps and see all the videos. I’m so thankful for the great fans that keep us informed.

    I have be swamped with company and even had to work today. Last night, all the kids were gathered in the living room to watch the song-a-long version of Frozen and I decided to check my emails…I have seen the movie 3 times now…and I was blown away with the videos already coming in! I put my headphones on and went to heaven! I was in my own little world with the fabulous voice fulfilling my very soul!! Needless to say, my customers were treated today with his fantastic voice.

  7. Pattirae, many thanks for your recap on the other thread. I really appreciated it! I had been wanting to know about the reception David was getting and had hoped it would be wonderful..and it is!

    Djafan, like you my heart really hurt that I could not be there to support David on his return to the stage. I was actually telling my mother about this yesterday. Couldn’t believe I felt that tinge, but I did!

    I was going to write this in the other thread, but I did notice the tailored suit! Looks new as the lapels are still very crisp and pointed! Must also note the black shoes with the red soles! Hahaha! David is stylin’ !!! To match the tie, I suppose? I was going to say he finally got a new belt, but then I read in the IG post that he just borrowed it! LOL.

    Read that Kari and Gina are there – glad they can see our boy again in his element! Big plans for 2015, bring them on!

    I think I spy David’s grandfather over his shoulder in that picture with Amber. Also, I’m a little confused. Is she calling David “little one”. That’s so precious if she is. They almost look enough alike to be twins, since he looks so young. I know she’s a lot younger, but there is a strong resemblence.

    I got to attend last night and this afternoon. Today’s performance was better in all aspects (for all the performers and crew) than Fridays, in my opinion. They were smoother in the scenery changes, the people were all more relaxed, more open and at home with what they were doing. So all in all it was a great success. If that continues for Sat night, watch out, the roof just might blow off of SLC. ^_^

    As for DA… Yes. Yes to everything you could ask. Yes to what all the videos show. The power, the delivery, the emotion, the control… Well, maybe not ALL the control he wants and will yet have, but enough control to power up a 747 and fly it through a couple thousand hearts, ( which inexplicably just keep beating).

    More later. I am not good with recaps. Love what Pattirae said. It was so good to see her and all my road-trip buddies.

    I am especially grateful to those who worked so hard to make sure that so many of you all could see the videos. You are amazing! Thank you! And to the admins for keeping things all up-dated.

    Big hugs to all of you!!!

    Don’t know what I can add to all the wonderful comments yesterday & so far today, except to say that the “Celebration of Faith” was indeed, just that. Everyone, who is hearing David this weekend, can’t help but feel truly blessed by his voice & spirit. This afternoon I felt so touched to witness his remarkable performance. It wouldn’t be fair to choose a favorite…each song is perfect in its own way. The humming at the end of TFN has always felt like a prayer to me. “Do You Hear What I Hear”?….well, that arrangement is so unique, almost haunting (& I just might be a new fan of Kevin Olasulo—he is a brilliant celloist & gave David a big hug after the finale today….hope they do something together in the future). Glorious was, well, ‘glorious’! Before singing “Silent Night”, David gave a sweet talk about being home, as only he can…he is still ‘that engaging David’ we all grew to love.. Then he sang another unbelievable “Silent Night”! The finale was emotional for me….Believe is a song I love & David, with the full background of singers, made us all believe in the what this Christmas season is all about!

    What Pattierae said about David looking at each of them last night, as he walked off the stage, I think he did the same thing this afternoon. Sitting 8 rows back, I could still tell he was acknowledging those who love him. He received another standing O today, when 1st introduced….so deserving! There is no one like David. I really feel we have a lot to look forward to next year. A GLORIOUS time awaits all of us!

    There’s nothing I can add about today’s show, except that I was there! As much as I hated to leave my daughter’s home yesterday, I’m feeling rewarded tonight. The Voice cannot be matched. And, I don’t think the talent that Kevin Olasulo possesses can be either. That man is good on the cello and with his boom beat. I just honestly will never hear DYHWIH the same again. David has given it a new life!

    Thank you for the mp3’s Abrra.

    I saw a lot of fans, but didn’t do much visiting. I was looking for you Bluesky, but never did see you. Where were you sitting? I saw you Dayzee from a distance after the show, but we kind of boogied out in a hurry and I never made it over to you. One of these times, we will have to get tickets and go together.

    Oh, and to top the day off…… I have 10 new great-grand doggys…. my daughter’s black lab had her puppies today (I got the text during the show). It’s quite a pile of little black labs in the pic that she sent.

    One other note. At Fri. performance I was sitting by my sister-in-law who was next to my brother, neither had seen DA live before. He did not perform in the first number, but came out alone on stage for the second to sing The First Noel with a live orchestra. (The orchestra was good. Several times durning the evening I forgot they were there and caught myself thinking that the singers were using recorded accompaniment.)

    Anyway, Friday I could see how nervous DA was. Alone on the black stage, the orchestra hidden down below, spotlight on him with a new suit – the little white kerchief showing where his name tag used to be. Body stance was recognizable. I leaned over to my sister-in-law and said: “He sure looks like a missionary.” She chuckled and said: “Your brother just said the same thing!”

    Although all his sets were amazing Friday, what I was really happy to see Sat, was his return to more nuanced hand movements, more ease in the spotlight, more purposeful moving around the stage with natural awareness, and using the space to connect with the audience. That “remembering” showed up in a more relaxed vocal delivery as well. He is no longer just another missionary who has come home: “The return of the Jedi” is closer to it.

    I imagine Sat night was even better by the reports. Going to be a lovely DVD.

That “remembering” showed up in a more relaxed vocal delivery as well. He is no longer just another missionary who has come home: “The return of the Jedi” is closer to it.”

    Thanks for sharing that. I did see some differences in his demeanor, his smiles, and his hand movements on the last videos. (HIs hand movements while performing are very telling) Maybe he’s slowly remembering what it was like to share his humor, his smiles, and his incredible voice with everyone out there. Seeing faces that I’m quite sure he knows travelled to see him has to have made an impression as well.

    It does my heart good to see it. Maybe it’s done him some good to see “fans,” letting him know we are waiting in the wings to support him. And just maybe doing it for three consecutive shows in two days has helped him remember how much happiness he brings to fans from everywhere.

    PS. The part about the pieces in the video in #33 (Thanks Anodrlurker!) is all kinds of Win! 🙂

    PSS. Although I still want to muss his hair up a bit (Just teasing you guys LOL) I think he looked extremely good at the shows. More handsome than ever.

    I have no doubt David’s star will rise. That talent can not be denied.

    You’re right, MT, David’s talent cannot be denied. My friend and I were sitting in the middle of people that were there to see mainly David, but have been the ‘quiet’ admirers.

As Bluesky said, the Jedi is returning. He is here to stay. The wait is coming to an end and it is so worth what we’ve waited for.

    I wish you all could have been there for all three shows. There was a growth to be seen with each performance. The Saturday night finale was such fun! David was exuberant in his admiration and appreciation of the cello fellow Kevin and all of his coworkers. As Bluesky mentioned, the orchestra was invisible to us because they were in a pit beneath the stage. Every finale, David would walk to the front edge of the stage and lean down to give them recognition and thanks.

    My daughter was with me Saturday night. When David was rambling about Christmas trees and pies I started giggling and my daughter nodded her head. She said, “Now I see why you say he communicates by song.

    I mostly “listen” to David these past two years instead of watch him perform. I have been struck (again) how he interprets every word with his voice, his face and his body. He is making sure we understand, and you need to see him to fully “get” that. It was a joy to hear and see him again.

    For me, the collaborations he is beginning to develop, are very exciting. I said earlier, a tour with Kevin Olusola and David would be incredible. I think he is the perfect partner for David; talented, young, joyful and well thought of in the music business. Things are heating up.

    If I haven’t said it before, thanks so much to all of you who went to the performances for your videos and descriptions of the show and David. It means so much to those of us who can’t go. I live in KY, so that would be a long haul for me. Maybe someday he’ll come to a location that I can drive to. If not, I’ll rely on the ninja angels who video and take pictures.

  58. Happy Birthday Sky!! What a great cake…

    I would like to know from those who attended the concerts just how many were estimated to have attended percentage wise. The theatre has the capacity to hold 1,876. Was it 90% filled?

    It seemed from what was being said, that the concerts were not sold out after his near three year absence from the stage. Perhaps folks from SLC can tell us why, as in the past he has had such tremendous support from there as from surrounding places such as Provo. We all know what a wonderful singer he is and there were people flying and driving in from out of town to enjoy his return to the stage so they indeed made up part of the audience. There could possibly have been a good number from BYU where he attends university.

    Although it was “not a David concert”, he certainly starred in it.

    Maybe people there are preferring to wait for another event that is happening this Christmas.

    The schools are closed, so the students would have to be at home for the holiday. Also, David’s last concert in Utah, before leaving on his mission, had a lot of pop music mixed in with Christmas music, which would attract a wider audience. I’m sure that this concert would have been sold out if there had only been the Saturday night performance.

    SB, I don’t have an estimate on attendance, but I know it wasn’t filled on the Sat. matinee. However, my honest opinion, just from listening to chatter around me, is that a very large percentage of the attendees were there to hear David. With the timing of the program, I can’t help but figure that that was a large reason for the smaller crowds. David was very well supported at these shows. Trust me.

    Happy Birthday, Sky!!!!!!

    Clarification: Despite misleading reports, David will not be at the Live Nativity event on Monday, December 1, in Provo Utah. He will be part of the video produced of the event, but his portion is being filmed at a later time.

    Quick update for everyone. David will NOT be at the event on Monday 12/1 in Provo. He is part of the video, but a different portion that is being filmed at a later time. Sounds like a lot of fun though, if you are going stay warm! ~ Team Archie

    This on his Facebook comments:

    Lindsey Lewis My 15 year old sister is heartbroken at this news. My mom and I signed her up as a team captain (1 of 40) for this event because we were told those volunteers would be able to meet and get pictures with the cast of the music video. She adores David and his music and has never had the chance to attend a concert or anything, because she lives in Portland, Oregon.

    We decided to fulfill her dream of getting to meet David, by pitching together and flying her out for this event as her main Christmas present. She is a timid/shy fan girl type that cried with happiness when we told her she would be getting less than a minute of his time in exchange for hours and hours of work on this project and she was thrilled. She is 14 and a half, but is a great leader and will do a fantastic job.

    If there is anything you guys can do, to help us make up for the main part of her Christmas present falling through, I would be forever grateful.

    Feel free to email me at lewis.lindseya@gmail.com

    And thank you for your time.

    Praying all is well with David and his family.

    David Archuleta Hello Lindsey – I’m very sorry. The folks putting this together were told a while ago that he was not able to be there Monday.. We only told by someone yesterday at that it was being promoted in this way and so we are trying to let everyone know as best we can that this is not the case, There will be other opportunities in the future to meet him (Gina..David’s manager)

    #Repost from @kolusola — I didn’t get time for a picture myself, so I am reposting Kevin’s. Performed with Kevin Osulola from Pentatonix this past weekend for the Celebration of Christ. It was an awesome experience. It was refreshing talking to someone who is firm in his faith and know who he is– and with crazy beatboxing cello-playing skills! A great way to begin The Christmas season.

    Abrra… Thank you so much for all the goodies that you added to the candy jar this weekend. I downloaded some of them to my iPod which is always an ordeal since I don’t do it often enough to remember all the steps. I have a couple of questions. When I downloaded Silent Night, it downloaded I Need a Silent Night. I double checked and it was labeled Silent Night (Shelly’s) on my computer music file, but transferred to iTunes as the other. Also, I received an alert from my antivirus program that it had blocked a site with malware. Now it won’t allow me into The Voice or Mediafire on my home computer! I’m using my iPad to type this so am able to access this site that way. Hope this isn’t too confusing! Do you have any idea what could be causing these problems? Thanks!

    I can assure you that neither this site nor my Mediafire account has any virus threat. We have no software other than what WordPress provides or advertising running here at The Voice. I make all the mp3’s myself and the files come directly from my home computer. They are scanned for viruses. I did a test download of that file and it was titled Silent Night as it should. I don’t know why you got a different title.
    I don’t know what anti virus you have, but I do know that Norton ( and some others) are overly sensitive. Sometime a program will alert where it isn’t really necessary due to some setting it has. Such as when a site has flash plug-in ( which is a common tool) and the anti virus will freak out. Today I posted some.gif pictures in comment #62. Those are enough to set off alarms in some anti virus programs, but those pictures are safe. I can’t really explain why. I can only say both sites are safe. When I have a problem with a download from a KNOWN SAFE SITE. I disable the anti virus and do the download, then re enable it when I have what I want.

    I have emailed the file you want to the email address you gave WordPress to register with. You can decide to open it or delete it.

    If you have a tech you trust, I suggest you ask them for a more in depth explanation. Everyone should have a tech, before they need one 🙂

    It is as though he is telling us a story that just happens to be sung in stead of spoken. He narrates. I cannot always tell, however, if he is reading the script from his heart or mine. Probably from his. Why then, do I feel the imprint of the words?
