Listening to this song last night felt like getting a big hug from David (and not only because it was 2 a.m. my time and I could barely focus my eyes). “I know things are gonna get better, I know things are gonna be fine.”
David could’ve easily used his performance on the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon to promote his single (as other artists did) but, no, that’s not David.
Instead, he sang a brand new song from the album that fit the occasion perfectly. A song of light and hope. He’s also savvy enough to know that his fans would tune in to catch the new song and, being the generous go-getters we are, he also knew we’d help support the cause. (Which you can by clicking the MDA link above or texting “MDA” to 20222 to donate $10.)
I doubt this song will be a single. What I picture instead is it being a crowd favourite at his concerts, with an a cappella chorus where every voice in the crowd joins in, claps hands or waves arms gaining strength from one another and basking in the love from and for Mr. David Archuleta.
I also picture him singing it at the Grammys backed by a full gospel choir, quaking the rafters and raising the roof. Hey, a girl can dream.
I think I need more sleep….
