This has been an incredible year in David Land. This Christmas Tour was amazing. I feel sad that this time many haven’t been able to witness the gift that is David but I know that will change in 2017.
Here are some of our favorites videos from the Christmas Tour.
I have a huge archive of videos to choose from thanks to 8throwcenter and ShelleyFOD who film at every show they attend. So, I opened my files and these are my favorites!
Mary Did You Know-8throwcenter
This song is up there with my all time favorites. Lyrically superior with a haunting melody sung by someone who understands it.
This song is vocal perfection. David adds his special vocal technique to the melody like no other. His interaction with the band brings them into focus during the musical interlude.
The Christmas Song-ShelleyFOD
Some songs that David sings are all about the sound for me. This one is all about the visuals. He interprets the lyrics with his hand movements and facial expressions. He draws us into the song with him.
I can’t finish my part without mentioning all the wonderful quirky and fun IG stories that David has made for fans. I particularly enjoyed the ones where he sang. I captured one he did from his hotel room where he sang in Mandarin language. It was a reprise of the song he performed in China, My Heart Represents the Moon.
You can find a copy of this in Abrra’s Candy Jar
My very favorite performance is the jazzed up version of “White Christmas” but since Abrra already chose that one above, here are my next three picks.
Glorious. My heart leaps a beat whenever I hear the intro to Glorious. This song does to me what it’s meant to do. It lifts me up because it’s so life-affirming. Am happy that David chose to include it in the set list for this Christmas tour.

The Prayer. I liked this song from waaayyy back but David brought it back to life for me. In this duet, David’s and Nathan’s voices blend harmoniously resulting in a beautiful sound. I love the respect they have for one another too. Yes, this was definitely one of my favorite performances from this tour.
My Little Prayer. I call this song the little song that could and did. It started out as just a dream David had and turned into something remarkable for a young singer songwriter. I honestly didn’t want to like this song because I tend to stay away from songs about someone’s dream. But the end result, after David polished it for recording and singing live for this tour gave me no choice; it’s just just wonderful.

All are my favorites at some point due to various circumstances. Right now these are on repeat.
Oh Holy Night. This has been my favorite Christmas song since I can remember and having David’s version completes the sound it’s supposed to have.
Ave Maria. This is another song that I grew up listening to and loved. But David singing it opens up the heavens. He sang it at VIPs and so glad it was recorded.
Joy To The World. David’s live version is so soulful. I love when David lets out the soul. The ending is killer.
We want to thank all the fans who post, read, and lurk here at The Voice. Please know that sharing David’s career journey is so much sweeter for us when you share your thoughts with us here.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah & Happy Holidays! And may you have a great time with family and friends!

My brain has been in a state of mist or fog due to three days of pure David Archuleta concert bliss last week. Coming back to days of work waiting for me hasn’t helped but I’d do it again in a heartbeat. What an incredible time going to concerts, hanging with like-minded fans who don’t roll their eyes when you can’t stop talking about all things David. I really really hope that David is available so we can make our trip to Tuacahn an annual event. David is magic and in that setting, the experience is unreal.
I’m going to try to share some of the things that left an impression on me from this incredible three-day immersion into David music and we must not forget the story telling, love them both.
The new songs “I’m Ready” and “Say Me”. They’re living in my heart and I can’t wait to hear them again. His voice, that voice just penetrates my soul. It is a sound that doesn’t seem possible to exist. I can’t even describe it but the sensory overload is real. I love them both but something about Say Me is so haunting and full of cry that it hurts, makes you feel the realness that is David. It was hard for him to describe it but it made perfect sense to me. The way he sang these songs was so raw and personal, so vulnerable… incredible. “Numb” is the perfect song for a comeback. I heard it last year but it sounds new, fresh. I wondered if he was singing it differently. Hearing the beautiful production of the recorded version might play a part but it is sooooo good. I hope it gets the attention it deserves.
The Lyric Video
The covers, oh my, “Higher Ground” displayed all of David’s groovitude, vocally and physically. He has a way to sing and move that is unique only to him and we eat it right up, I’m sure that this is only the beginning.
“Don’t You Worry Child” was so much fun! Love that he acknowledged some of us would need to do the jumping at the knees lol.
“Dare You To Move” was huge for me. The reasons he picked this song were so personal and as I listened back to the videos it hit me in the gut. Don’t know why but I don’t like him to hurt and it was painful. It’s become a favorite as it is so relatable. I know to play this full blast when needed now.
The oldies, so funny to think of them as oldies when David is only twenty five. “Something About Love” and “Crush” have to be sung. They’re crowd favorites and I can’t help getting up to dance to these. “My Hands” will always be one of my favorites and “Works For Me”, what an unexpected surprise! Loved it in his new deep rich velvety voice as he strutted around the stage and so did everyone else. And I also want to say that this band is superb. Chad is the best backup vocalist David has ever had. I watched the band members as David shared his stories and I love that they laugh, smile and clap every night even though they’ve heard these stories many times now! They’re keepers.
The story telling was signature David but better. I love for him to talk and share with us. The entire show, the singing and stories he shares in order to relate to us, to help us understand where he is coming from all make for something personal. A soul and heart connection that is felt throughout the evening. David initiates and we reciprocate with applause, yelling, and screams of I love you. David says he doesn’t feel sincere in yelling back I love you too, but he doesn’t have to. His love for humanity is palpable and it brings me to tears. It’s an experience to be felt. If there are those on the fence about going to one of these experiences please go, it is so worth it.
The fan lunch surprise sure surprised us all. I was so happy that Kari stopped by and answered some questions (I’ll refer to Dayzee for those because all I could do was smile and wonder if I was dreaming). I was dragging chairs, something about me and chairs… never mind, to the center for the group picture when he walked in and I was able to shake his hand and thank him for taking the time to come by before he sat down. I sat so still that I was able to record! I’m horrible at this but it came out fine. The words of thanks to his fans were so real, not to just the ones there but to all. He knows we’re there to support him and he appreciates it. And then he sits to sing! There is nothing better than David’s voice. I was sitting no more than four feet to his left and acoustic David is just wow. I also love his love of food which he was curious about what we ate and we’re all trying to answer his questions about the soups. What a guy.
I want to thank Kalei and her team for a great luncheon, we had so much fun. And also for the shout out to Snowangelz and The Voice David Archuleta for our continued support of David. Kalei beautifully stated we are a community of David fans, true words.
I also want to thank the fans who personally thanked me at the luncheon and the adms of this fan site and for continuing our support of David. Thank you all for hanging with us. I believe things are only going to get sweeter.
