Congratulations to the lucky Archies who were able to attend. And thank you to the brave souls who managed to get videos. I had a horrible weekend and these videos are helping me set my mind and heart at ease. I canít wait to get my hands on the CD/DVD next year.

While weíre on the subject of Christmas, will there be a Christmas From The Heart, Vol. 2? Can it please include:

Gesu Bambino
The Cat and Mouse Carol
Mary Did You Know
Little Drummer Boy
Ave Maria (Schubertís)
Noche de Paz
Rockin Around The Christmas Tree

Pretty please? /christmaswish santa.gif

saw this at snarkies from dean

David invited me to come to the original meeting he had with Mack Willberg back in October where they talked about Mack's vision of the program, song selection, keys, etc. Unfortunately I was in Nashville that week Showcasing my daughter for some music industry people and labels and so I was not able to attend, but I told David I would be available for a conference call if he wanted to include me. I sent him a text that morning and told him I was available any time he wanted to call, but I didn't ever receive a call so I assumed everything went alright. When I got back to Salt lake I contacted David and his dad to see how preparations were going and they seemed to feel that everything was going well so I didn't worry about anything.

The next I heard was Saturday December 11th and David had just met with Mack Willberg to rehearse his songs for the first time. He came over to the studio and we worked for a couple of hours going through things. All David had received was sheet music and David does much better when he can listen to the song and learn it that way. I was surprised that David was only doing one song from his Christmas album and 5 new songs so it was a lot for him to learn. I was mostly happy with the song choices however, especially the Spanish song and the "Cat and Mouse Carol". I thought those would both be great for the show. We made a rehearsal CD of the songs and went through them a few times. David then asked me to come to his rehearsal with Mack the next day.

We worked with Mack the next day. The choir and orchestra had already been rehearsing the material for a couple of weeks, Mack did give us permission to change some notes here and there to feature David's voice and style. One change that we did insist on though was to do a different arrangement of the Spanish song since the one that was originally done was a slower version, more like a lullaby. The version David was familiar with was much faster and more fun, so we insisted we needed the more up tempo version, (Which incidentally in hindsight was definitely the right decision!) Incidentally, Mack was "blown away" with David's progress between his first and second rehearsals and how quickly David picked up all the new material after being able to hear it and work with it rather than just having the sheet music!

David met with the choir and orchestra for the first time Tuesday evening December 14th. I was fortunate to be at his rehearsals both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. I focused mostly on trying to get the sound of David's microphone the way we wanted to make it warmer and richer and to make sure that the tempos were right. When you have several hundred people performing on a number the tempos tend to really drag. It was important to us to keep the tempos moving. And also in a hall that size the voice can become thin sounding and we wanted to make sure we got the richness of David's voice. The new arrangement of the Spanish song wasn't ready until Wednesday so the first time David got to rehearse that was Wednesday night.

I warmed David up by phone Thursday and Friday nights as I had other commitments, but I attended the performance Saturday night. It was stunning! I was extremely proud of David. Especially since there was a constant wave of people coming through wanting to meet David before the performances, even though he was trying to get ready and be prepared for such a big show! David was always very gracious and professional, and even had to deal with a few last minute concerns and changes. Although I was pleased with the whole show I felt that "Silent Night" was the highlight! His voice sounded so great and his emotion so heartfelt it was definitely a special moment. David was also himself, very natural and genuine; acknowledging his fans and waving to them which was fun.

At 7:45 Sunday morning my phone rang and we warmed David up for his Sunday broadcast. David's voice sounds great on this type of material and I was pleased that people got to hear the richness, depth and control he has that you don't get to hear as much when he sings his pop stuff. The Christmas songs were definitely good vehicles for him to show that really does have a wonderful voice with great control. power, emotion and dynamics.

I was extremely proud of David and very happy with the performances. He definitely won over the audience and the choir and proved he deserves to be recognized with the great vocalists and performers of our day!

- Wow the 11Dec was kind of late to rehearse for the first time for an event like this one.
- David is totally attracted by the sounds/music , i can feel his stress just with a sheet music and Five new arrangements
- I love too the spanish songs and the cat and the mouse, i read in another review in TDC that the song was made thinking in David,s voice and personality, and i guess it's work Very Well, the song was beautifully performed yes.gif

Glad they insisted in this change, that valide the fact that uptempo songs can do great with and orchestra too original.gif

I saw last year concert with this tenor Broadway guy and The Natalie Cole one this year in TV and the very popular one with Sissel in YTB and judging by the Ninja videos we received , i can said that David's voice really Stand Up and kept the lead role all the time in the concert, he was not overshadowed by the chorus, but he don't overpowered his voice over them neither .....like in the case of Sissel and Natalie you can barely hear them in some parts of the numbers with the chorus and in the guy case his voice was so powerful over them....so yeah David did a great Job and his voice was rich and shined ver well in all the performances thumbsup.gif

Yeah i heard many comments about Silent Night too from bloggers non fans and the ones about his cute/awkward/natural behaviour on stage LOL.

I agree too, but i still loving him in the pop stuff, maybe he just need more powerful lyrics and ballads idk innocent.gif

Yes! many of his Utah folks were really impressed with him, is about the time that people gonna give him his place in the music.......he can switch from pop to any kind of style , even the most high demanded ones. Now i hope his management team are ready to make profit in terms of publicity of this special and the one with Orla Fallon, that btw is so sweet too, I love soo much their version of Silent night wub.gif
