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.

Abrra:

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.

White Christmas-ShelleyFOD

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

Bebereader:

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.

Djafan:

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.
