Monday, Oct. 12th, is Canadian Thanksgiving. So, when it was announced that Oct. 13th was the official release date for David Archuleta’s Christmas From the Heart CD, the timing seemed too good to be true.
I was thankful when the first CD was released, don’t get me wrong. But there’s something about David singing Christmas songs that just seems so … perfect.
The thought of seeing all those shiny new CFTH CDs on the record-store rack on Tuesday, makes my heart sing. And the prospect of blasting the whole thing for the first time until the speakers shake … well, I get a little shaky thinking about that, too.
This holiday weekend, I’m also most grateful for the wonderful people I’ve met, new places I’ve been and experiences I’ve shared with fellow fans of David. It’s one cool, crazy group and I love being part of it.
Thank you, David
Here at SnowAngelz, we thought what better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than to express our gratitude to @DavidArchie for his music, his Voice, his very David-ness.
You are all welcome to include your own messages in the comments (either here or on the “Thank You, David” page (see new Tab up top) and the SnowAngelz team will collect everyone’s thank yous throughout October and deliver them to David at the Manchester, NH, show on the 29th.
And thank you to all of you! Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!
SnowAngelz thank yous
David, thank you for being the person you are and sharing your amazing talent with anyone who will stop to listen. You reach out to and connect with people in such positive ways – aside from your singing, your blogs/vblogs/tweets– and impact them to change the way they think and act. Perhaps hard for you to understand, but embraced by those you touch. My wish for you is that you continue to be happy in whatever you choose to do.
Being thankful for David is something I am inspired to be every day. David, thank you for your tweets, which keep me amazed at your positive outlook, David, thank you for your vlogs, that make me smile and giggle EVERY TIME I watch.. David, thank you for your heart, which you bare in all your interactions with your fans. David, thank you for the grace you display in all your dealings with the media. David, thank you for the gift of your VOICE, which soothes, calms, inspires and connects me to the Eternal…and leads me to be thankful for all of life.
Thank you, David, for sharing your musical gifts with us. Your voice and your songs bring joy into my life every single day. They take me to a place of pure love and light and lift my soul. Thank you also for your amazing live shows … they are thrilling and exciting and insane amounts of fun. But thank you most of all for always being truly you.
Peace and love to you and your family,
Dear David, Since it is Thanksgiving here in Canada, I am going over in my mind the many things and people I have to be thankful for. As I review this year (the past 2 actually), I realize that some of the brightest highlights took place in venues, both large and small, where I had the pleasure of hearing your amazing voice, and feeling the warmth and kindness of spirit you exude. For this David, I am so thankful. I have met some of the kindest and warmest people over this past two years, through the love of your music and spirit, people I hope to call friends for an eternity. The power of your immense talent coupled with your warm, sincere, humble, happy, and generous personality, is changing the lives of many, and is something I know we are all thankful for in a big way!!
May God bless you and keep you safe always,
David, it’s Thanksgiving time in Canada. I’ll be giving plenty of thanks this weekend for my blessings. But I’d like to extend a warm Canadian thank-you to YOU. How do I do this adequately? How about the Top 10 “MERCI BEAUCOUP‘s from a Canadian fan? Here goes, David – thanks for:
#10: Two CD’s and a fanbundle within one year…how lucky are we!
#9: Being inclusive of all your fans…big, small, young, old(ish), domestic and international…you appreciate us all
#8: Including Pat-a-Pan and speaking in French (très magnifique) on your Christmas CD
#7: Loving Cheesecake Factory gift certificates (and SU2C donations haha)
#6: “Bubbly” Re-invented, an indescribable “Angels” in Pittsburgh, and “Desperate” deconstructed in Rockford. Merveilleux!
#5: Signing back a painting from a Canadian artist for auction before stuffing it back into a FEDEX box (an EXTRA MERCI for that!)
#4: Blogs, vlogs, VIPs and @DavidArchie tweets
#3: Your tour stop in Canada (wait, is that planned yet?…well, it should be!)
#2: Staying true to yourself and your values. And trusting your gut.
AND THE #1 thanks is for: Sharing the extraordinary gift of your artistry and musical interpretation with all of us. And for taking us along on this musical journey with you. We are all better people because of it. From the bottom of our Canuck hearts, merci.
Dear David – You make me laugh. You make me sing. You make me dance. Wow. Thank you.
