David Archuleta & MoTab: Surreal magnificence

Date:

Friday December 17, 2010

Setting:

  • LDS Conference Centre in Salt Lake City, Utah.
  • A venue that holds 21, 000 people — it is mind blowing to see.  The tiered seats facing an enormous stage – about 3-4 stories high.
  • And the organ … well I may never see anything like it again in my life.

Event:

  • David Archuleta performing as guest artist (along with Michael York) with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra.
  • As I walked inside, I must have stood in amazement with my jaw hanging open, gawking for at least 30 minutes.
  • The stage so beautifully adorned.
  • The filing in of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir took at least 5 minutes – 350-plus volunteer singers who all sounded as one, truly breathtaking.
  • The organist making the organ come to life with a sound that gave me chills during his solo performance.
  • The orchestra: harpists, flutists, bell ringers that came down the stairs between the choir sections twice to delight me with their delightfully harmonious accompaniment.
  • Michael York – sublime storyteller with a multitude of vocal nuances to take you on a journey.
  • One of the stories about the circumstances surrounding the origin of the Choir couldn’t have been better chosen to portray David’s own feelings about the power of voice in song.

David:

  • JOYOUS, eyes aglow and a smile constantly hovering, if not evident … his body movements naturally harmonious as the music flowed through him in complete abandonment.
  • He looked AT HOME on that stage.
  • By now you know that he wore, with ease, a tux with white shirt, green vest – bow tie – handkerchief.
  • His two talking moments, delivered with calm composure, were defined by the joy he expressed at being HOME with family and friend and the honour he felt to be there, singing with the MoTab choir.
  • His voice filled the space, clearly heard above the choir – rich in tone.
  • The Cat and Mouse Carol – sung whimsically yet with meaning, a storyteller with hands and upper body movement. A surprise, but an absolutely delightful carol.
  • Los Pastores a belen – in honour of his Spanish heritage – exuberantly delivered!
  • Silent Night –sung with a beautifully defined intensity, with the choir and orchestra accompaniment supporting him – tears here.
  • Angels From The Realm of Glory – his “Glorias” sung with absolute ease and the end note … oh that end note … strong and sustained.  Powerful – Stunning.  Standing Ovation as he, the Choir master and Michael York left the stage.
  • They all returned, were given yellow roses, and a repeat of the ending bars sung again.  I am at a loss for words to describe my feelings at this point.

David Moments:

  • Just as he came onto the stage to sing at one point, he gave an endearing little wave and grin to someone in the audience – likely someone he knew – that prompted the entire audience to collectively chuckle.  Ah, so sweet.
  • Each time he exited, he would give his signature wave and smile as he walked off.  I hope he never fails to do this at any point, in any circumstance during his career.

These are my impressions, possibly out of order, knowing that I have forgotten many things.  I am still in AWE. I may never totally come down from the glorious high I experienced.  A memory forever etched into my very existence.

If you have any questions, please ask and I will answer if I can.

    Wow Awestruck. I’ve been waiting for your review. It was magnificent in it’s reverence and elegant in it’s conciseness.

    I’d like to add that I had the opportunity to see your face and hear your moment to moment reactions and that made the experience at the concert all the more enjoyable.

  2. roxfox says:

    What a beautiful review and gorgeous video! I yearn to re-live all of it! Just elated so many of you came to be a part of the glory, and like you said, to witness David ‘at home’ in every sense of the word. Was a pleasure to meet many of our northern friends 🙂 Merry Christmas….Roxanne

    • awestruck says:

      oh my memory, did we meet?

      sort of like I said that David was accompanied by the choir on Silent Night… which was his SOLO, lol

    • refnaf says:

      (((roxanne))) nthanks again for all your hard work!! what an experience!!

  3. TOfan says:

    {{{Awestruck}}} love your recap! Your screen name really hits home when I read it!

    Roxfox!!!! *waves* It was so amazing to meet you and I couldn’t agree more, “I yearn to re-live all of it!” It all feels like a dream, a beautiful one!

    I don’t think I’ve ever felt so much Christmas spirit as this year … it helps that our CEO has asked that classic Christmas movies (right now it’s “Miracle on 34th St.”) be played on the TV in our lobby … and he’s Jewish! lol … Maybe I should give him a “secret Santa” CFTH? 😆

  4. abanana77 says:

    {{{awestruck}}} Awesome summary! “JOYOUS, eyes aglow and a smile constantly hovering” THIS is what I noticed the most I think – he just glowed. You could tell he was living out a dream just being on that stage and I am so happy for him 😀

    TOfan – awesome video! Don’t think I will ever get over the beauty of the Christmas lights in temple square! Oh and is that our “friend” at 1:48 of the video??? He said he was part of one of those spinny things, LOL.

  5. smanda says:

    Okay, so I couldn’t attend this monumental David event and I’m still crushed that I couldn’t – almost as sad about missing seeing David-friends as missing him. Having some video/audio helps ease the grief though – thanks so very, very much. I’m especially glad to be able to hear Silent Night as his/Richard’s version is my all time favorite, no one else even comes close. Thank you, thank you. I have high hopes for 2011 to be a good David-year. 🙂

    • TOfan says:

      {{{{smanda}}} sooooo wish you could’ve been there! I have that same feeling about 2011… should I wish you a Happy David-New Year? 😆

  6. awestruck says:

    smanda and to all others who were unable to come to SLC (((hugs))). Reading your comments makes me so happy that I can at least try to share and give insight into at least some of the very special moments.

  7. Trish says:

    Awesome recap awestruck 🙂 Thanks so much!!

    I still can’t seem to form sentences or complete thoughts LOL what’s new right haha .. Anyway

    David MoTab Choir the Orchestra the dancers = PERFECTION it truly was a JOYOUS – GLORIOUS – SPECTACULAR event!! Which I shall NEVER forget it!!

    Loved seeing so many fans/friends there and meeting new ones as well !!

    Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays <333

    • TOfan says:

      complete sentences? what are those? 😆

      Unforgettable is right, and as Awestruck said “surreal magnificence” to boot! 🙂

      • Trish says:

        Ha you said boot …. BOOTS !!! sorry .. had to 🙂

        I forgot to say how much I loved the vid you made with all the gorgeous pics and snow .. Temple Square at Christmas Beautiful <33333

        Two thumbs up !!!

      • TOfan says:

        hahahaha, Trish, here’s to boot season!!!! 🙂

  8. peppertara says:

    awestruck….such a beautiful post, thank you. I am thrilled to hear about that spectacular event, I doubt that you or anyone else who experienced it will ever completely”come down” from that level of blissful amazement. Just absorb it into your being and know that you have received an extra blessing because of it. So happy that you were there and happy for others who were there. Yes, there is a little sense of grief for those of us who couldn’t be there but we do take some solace in all the wonderful recaps, videos and the absolutely glorious moments shared with us all. Thank you to all who take the time to share those moments and incredible experiences with us, you’re the best!
    TOfan……your Silent Night video is just glorious, thank you! Oh my, can’t watch it or listen to David sing that song without some tears. So incredibly moving, powerful and beautiful beyond words. He really is a master at what he does and a master at sharing the beauty, joy and inspiration that comes from within him….gorgeous, simply gorgeous.
    A blessed holiday to all, those of you who were in SLC recently have most definitely had your holiday season blessed in a very special and beautiful way. ❤

    • awestruck says:

      “Just absorb it into your being and know that you have received an extra blessing because of it.” oh yes peppertara – I still have not listened to any of the MoTab videos – still really just trying to process it all.

  9. ncgirlmarylee says:

    Everything you felt..I felt! Thank you, Deb, for putting those thoughts on paper..I loved reading every word. It was truly an experience we will remember forever. I reminded myself just how blessed I was every moment I was there in that beautiful setting, surrounded by those who adore David as I do & witnessing a dream come true for him.

  10. ncgirlmarylee says:

    ..oops..video by (TOfan) & recap by Awestruck! Nevertheless, the entire page is lovely & full of beautiful memories..my thanks to both of you! ❤

    • TOfan says:

      thanks, marylee!

      It is kinda strange that a bunch of us haven’t watched vids from the weekend … wonder why, hmmm … and confession time, the reason I made this video is because I failed at positioning the camera (and didn’t realize I could zoom) so the picture that actually goes with the video is basically the back of the guy in front of me’s head shifting back and forth! 😆

  11. omgDavid says:

    Awestruck, DITTO!!!! as promised. Beautiful… bravo.
    Let me tell you all, I am a fan of Snowangelz + the honorary Canadians. Meeting you ladies made the weekend more especial.
    Elizabeth

  12. refnaf says:

    ahhhhh What a recap awestruck!!! double ditto ( hi omgdavid) I am so overwhelmed…. meeting and reconnecting with everyone AND hearing David> wowzers, I feel so blessed.
    A highlight for me was at the end of the Sunday Morning event, when the choir sang “Until we meet Again” to David and Micheal York, gah….. no words to describe the look on David’s face.
    TOfan, your Silent Night vid is terrific,…..

  13. Tawna21 says:

    {{{awestruck}} how beautiful and perfectly told. I’m so glad to have seen you at the Taifoon. I can’t quit listening to the songs from the concert–I switch from computer to iPod to computer to iPod…..! To be able to visualize David in them is beautiful, and your recap helped even more with my recall of my Saturday night/Sunday morning experiences. And Silent Night! No words–tears.

  14. bluebird19 says:

    Awestruck: I love the “outline” form for your recap. You did a great job setting the scene and describing the events. Made me feel like it was written for a screenplay and then low and behold, I watched TOfan’s video after reading your great descriptions and there was the “play”!

    TOfan: The video was AWESOME. All the shots went so well with “Silent Night” and it was beautiful.

    Wish I could have seen all of it live, but thanks so much to both of you for giving those of us who couldn’t go some of the excitement and beauty of the concert.

    • awestruck says:

      bluebird my outline form happened because my brain is still not functioning, LOL but thank you!

  15. River says:

    just so appreciate the writings and the video. I’m still dumb struck that I was there and saw it all… and yet I missed so much. I never saw some of the displays. But I did meet amazing LDS people who chatted me up wondering what I was doing there and who was this kid they were going to hear. So fantastic to see all my fave fans and best of all to look in David’s eyes and wish him Merry Christmas. Love you all and especially magical David.

    • Kizzi says:

      {{{{River}}}} I think I lived what amounts to several lifetimes in those 4 days last weekend. I know exactly what you mean. It was fantastic to see you again. 😀

  16. awestruck says:

    river, I too felt like I missed much! Yet, I also feel like I lived a lifetime this weekend. It was majical indeed.

  17. TOfan says:

    Totally off-topic but you MUST check this out immediately!!!!

    • Sunshine says:

      Wow – where has that little gem been hiding? Looks like his recent trip to Asia. Too cute for words.

      • TOfan says:

        No, it was in Central Park! lol

        This was posted earlier on DA.com:

        “This September, while shooting David’s Tour Through ‘The Other Side of Down,’ the crew was able to capture a really great and bizarre David moment in Central Park. We can’t tell you what it is, but we can tell you that somewhere on this site there is a link to the video, and that the video is great… If you have trouble over the next few weeks, we’ll start posting hints.

        “next few weeks“???… it took fans about an hour to find it! lol

      • Sunshine says:

        haha – I couldn’t imagine where he’d been recently where the weather was so nice. Never underestimate David’s fans. 🙂

    • refnaf says:

      rrrr that vid will not work for me…. JR if you could make a youtube I will (((hug))) you!!!
      Sunshine, it is a real joy to see you here, jsyk 🙂

  18. RobertaFOD says:

    Wow Awestruck , you nailed it. You said so many things I had in my heart that I could not express. Sniff…. Beautiful, just great ! Thank you for sharing your awestruck review and reflection. The beautiful Silent Night still gets me, and it’s so great that you had the opportunity to capture it and have us listen.

  19. Sunshine says:

    Beautiful review awestruck! I am still pinching myself that I was there. Such an epic experience. Speaking of epic – what an archufabulous video! On Saturday night I closed my eyes when David sang Silent Night. My fellow snowangelz could not believe I didn’t watch the radiance of David’s face as he sang. But to me the radiance came from his heart and I didn’t want to miss a beat.

    Thank you TOfan, refnaf, abanana77, awestruck, Kizzi, KT, Lorna, omgdavid, momjulee and many more for being there.

  20. KT says:

    What a glorious trip to Utah. It is something I won’t forget. I won’t try to describe b/c words don’t do justice. It was so great so see TOfan, refnaf, Kizzi, Trish, Sunshine (remember what I said :)!) and so many other SAz. It was nice meeting abanana77 & awestruck.

    Yea omgdavid! You posted!

    TOfan I love your video and awestruck thanks for the great re-cap. Just so many memories to keep re-living.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you. I wish each of you the very best that 2011 has to offer. I look forward to seeing you all in the upcoming year.

  21. awestruck says:

    TOfan, abanana, refnaf, Trish, Sunshine, RobertaFOD, KT thank you all for your kind words (hope I haven’t missed anyone!)

  22. rocktellme(Keiko) says:

    This is my first comment here. It was so nice to meet you guys in SLC last weekend. My vocabularies are poor but I’d like to say THANK YOU for your welcoming me at Breakfast event,etc. And thank you for this beautiful video and recap, which reminds me of unbelievably fantastic moment of Motab Choir concert with David. Love from Japan

    • awestruck says:

      rocktellme(Keiko) I am so glad you made it home safely! It was wonderful to meet you! You were so generous. Please come and comment again.

    • refnaf says:

      Kieko!!! So good to meet you!!! and lovely to see you here!!! What memories we made this weekend, gah.

    • TOfan says:

      Keiko!!! It was so amazing to meet you! Glad you made it safely home to Japan!

      Did you see this picture from the Deseret Books Facebook page? (I believe it’s you & David!):

      David and Keiko

      • Kizzi says:

        Keiko – so good to meet you at the International Breakfast. I loved your David candies – how creative! Great to hear from you post SLC.

  23. embe86 says:

    Hello all.

    I haven’t commented much altely, because I’ve been so overwhelmed by all the videos and photos and blogs and articles etc. that David’s unbelievable “performance” (the word doesn’t do him justice) with the MoTab has generated. I felt like I shouldn’t say anything if I can’t find the perfect words, which is always impossible when it comes to David.

    It’s said that David “sang” or “performed” with the choir. Not to offend anyone, but I find that an understatement. It felt like David “created” something before unseen with his voice, his presence, his aura.. like he wanted to gift the whole world with something precious, a secret he wanted to share, a hidden superpower of good.

    Whatever it was that all those lucky people witnessed last weekend (and those of us who watched videos online), it was surely such a great happening that will forever be locked inside all of our souls, making our heart beat a little bit faster, making our spirit a little bit stronger. Thank you David, for being here, in this world. I’m so happy to have found you.

    • TOfan says:

      gosh, embe, look what you made me do! “It felt like David “created” something before unseen with his voice, his presence, his aura.. like he wanted to gift the whole world with something precious, a secret he wanted to share, a hidden superpower of good. *sniff*

      That’s exactly how it felt sitting there in the audience! … how you could feel the same all the way over in Finland blows me away … that “superpower of good” not so hidden after all! *hugs*

    • Kizzi says:

      You nailed it embe…It felt like David “created” something before unseen with his voice, his presence, his aura…a hidden superpower of good.

      There were definitely major jolts of joy to be experienced for all from his performances. The audience was mesmerized, stilled in their seats, ears perked, eyes glued to the stage. A 10 year old girl was sitting next to me and her dad next to her. She had a spiral notebook and was doodling except when David sang. Then her body stilled, she pushed to the edge of her seat, leaned forward, and with the fierce intensity that only a 10 year old can generate, was breathing in David songs. When David sang we could all “see” the music. Jolts of joy. So amazing.

  24. Abrra says:

    Awestruck
    We who stayed behind last weekend hang on every word written by those who attended the concerts. Your details are spectacular!
    TOfan

    Such great video. Made my eyes leak. The sound track wasn’t all that bad either 😉

    Abrra

  25. refnaf says:

    embe…. your words need repeating..

    “It’s said that David “sang” or “performed” with the choir. Not to offend anyone, but I find that an understatement. It felt like David “created” something before unseen with his voice, his presence, his aura.. like he wanted to gift the whole world with something precious, a secret he wanted to share, a hidden superpower of good.”

    Wow, so well said, thank you from someone who struggles to find the words, thankful for those who can>>> **bows**

  26. TOfan says:

    I read this great comment about Silent Night over at Soul David and wanted to share,
    (from raelovingangels):

    My “take” is this version of Silent Night is David’s Imagine “Two” –
    First huge credit for the amazing arrangement to Richard Parkinson.
    What David did is take a song that I have heard my entire life and make it brand new. Imagine was part of our social conciousness- Silent Night part of my religious and Holiday consiousness and fabric- A song that “represents” Christmas- probably more than any other to me.
    A song that I have sung and heard hundreds if not thousands of times- at church, on the radio, at parties, on CD’s etc……
    I swear, I have NOW heard Silent Night for the first time.

  27. SandyBeaches says:

    WOW…embe and raelovingangels! Thank you for finding the words that we have been hoping for and I imagine that there will be more.

    SnowAngelz..thank you for the “Silent Night” video, another treasure!

    This was the most wonderful musical and spiritual experience of my lifetime. We are so fortunate and to have so many friends to share it all with. I am hoping that they have David back as a guest soloist in the near future and I believe that it will happen.

    It was a sheer delight to see that Standing ‘O’ each night be so spontaneous by people other than ourselves. Well, we are a given! I clapped until my shoulders hurt and I had to stop.

    As Bebe said on ‘The Voice’, David is in another realm, how wonderful. There is a huge future for the Christmas carol ‘The Cat and Mouse” sung by David. Love came down to the earth…

    SB

  28. poof says:

    Embe
    I felt the same way. I was not at the concert, so appreciated everyone’s comments, and felt my words would only be redundant and somehow “less”.
    What you said was exactly how I felt watching his “glowing self” share his heart with the world. Thank you.
    All that is left to say is Merry Christmas to all. David certainly fills my heart with the spirit of the season.

  29. emmegirl says:

    awestruck, thank you for your wonderful, delightful post. I hope he never quits doing that signature wave at the end either. He connects with his audiences in so many different ways.

    embe, thank you, thank you for writing what I have been feeling.

    SB, love your thought on The Cat And Mouse. The way he sings this song shows again why he would be the perfect choice for the voice in an animation.

  30. awestruck says:

    To ALL who were only there in spirit with us this past weekend know that we thought of you and for me it is a sincere pleasure to share with you.

    • awestruck says:

      “only” there in spirit – nothing only about it. David’s fans support one another no matter where they are.

  31. awestruck says:

    TOfan – it is only now that I have listened to your Silent Night. The lights were so beautiful and pose a wonderful back drop for the song. As I listened I found myself leaning forward – being drawn in by the subtle inflections and utter reverence in David’s voice. Thank you.

  32. jackryan4DA says:

    TOfan – what a lovely recap. How is it possible that after 3 years since AI, David keeps on surprising us?

    Those who have witnessed this epic stage of career had been bestowed a great gift. Thank you readily for sharing them.

    The circle of giving never ceases in the ArchuWorld 🙂

    • TOfan says:

      JR, wish I could take credit for that great recap, but it’s Awestruck’s! (I only did the vid… hey, that rhymes! 🙂 )

  33. embe86 says:

    You guys…. it’s -31 Fahrenheit degrees here in Finland, but I’m not cold. How could I be after reading all of your wonderful comments?

    Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, which is when us Finns celebrate and open our gifts etc. Santa’s packing his sleigh and feeding energy bars to the reindeers, and I told him to bring some extra Christmas magic to all of you.

    Me, mini-Embe and my dogs want to wish you all a peaceful Christmas time. I love you.

  34. stenocruiser says:

    Embe – Voi olet ihanin joulu ja uusi vuosi täynnä iloa. (hope google translates that correctly!) We enjoy your posts so very much. All the best to you, Pete and your baby.

  35. MunkFOD says:

    Awestruck! Gosh this is so ………well it just fills me up with happiness…..tears spilling out. I didn’t have the opportunity to go, so this is so valuable to me. It makes me feel like I was almost there. The video is beautiful and your comments are wonderful. This really means a lot to me. So thank you so much!

    • awestruck says:

      You are most welcome though I still feel that there should be more words – they just escape me. It was such a profound experience for me.

  36. sweetonDA says:

    Hello my Canadian friends. I haven’t commented for a while here ,but I come and read your comments often. Just wanted to come by and wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I have a feeling 2011 is going to be great!

    TOfan, wish I would have met up with all of you in Utah, but my time was very limited and I felt it best to spend it with my sister who needed my support (she lost her youngest just after New Years and the holidays are hard on her this year). Next time we have a chance to all be together, I’m making it a priority to be to the fan gatherings.

    I’ve loved reading all the posts about the MoTab concert. I’m still coming down from that blessing.

    HAVE A MERRY HOLIDAY!

  37. sweetonDA says:

    Embe, I know this is late but, I want to say congratulations to you on the bundle of joy you have on the way. I’m so happy for you. I can just hear you singing lullaby’s to the little one. My prayers are with you to have a healthy baby and also sail through your pregnancy with no difficulty.

  38. archiesfan4life says:

    awestruck – thank you for helping me remember the details of this truly unforgettable event! It was great meeting you!

    Keiko – I will send those pictures as soon as I catch my breath – I only got home early this morning.

    {{{{{HUGS}}}}}} to everyone!

  39. TOfan says:

    Have added a cool video from omygoshashley to the end of Awestruck’s post as my way of saying Merry Christmas! to one and all! Love you guys!!!! ♥♥♥

    Hope everyone enjoys a peaceful joyous holiday season filled with D’s music!!!

  40. TOfan says:

    Came across this great blog post about MoTab:

    “I won tickets in the Mormon Lottery (AKA the drawing for Mormon Tabernacle Chior Christmas concert tickets). They were for the Sunday morning Music and the Spoken word show, so last Sunday morning my mom, dad, brother Mike and I headed down to SLC in the early morning hours. We heard we should be early so our seats wouldn’t be given away so… early we were. Early enough, in fact, to stand outside for almost an hour. In the pouring rain….

    “This year the guest performers were David Archuleta and Michael York. Awes! The concert was simply amazing. Breath taking. Spectacular. I loved it. D. Archie sang the most incredibly beautiful rendition of Silent Night I have ever, in my 27 years, been blessed to hear. I can’t wait for the album to come out next Christmas so I can listen to it over and over again.”

    Rest HERE.

  41. TOfan says:

    This may be old news, but I just saw this … interesting Hollywood Reporter story about Jeff Fenster leaving Jive (comments particularly intriguing!) HERE.

    eek, should we all not care if Jeff Fenster is calling?!? 😯

    • MunkFOD says:

      Tofan, Thanks for posting the link! wow…… Wonder what this means for David. I trust his judgement completely. He is an older soul ….. He knows what’s best. :))

  42. silverfox says:

    Wishing all the Snow Angelz & everyone else who’s here today & everyday, the Merriest Christmas ever & a New Year ahead filled with love, peace & joy!

  43. peppertara says:

    Stopped in to read awestruck’s lovely heartfelt recap again, watch the amazing videos (I agree TOan, that video you posted is the best Christmas card!), read the wonderful comments and stories here and to say Merry Christmas to everyone. What a great season it has been, David and MoTab, hearts filled with joy for sure.
    I read about J Fenster leaving too, not sure what that means….guess that he won’t be calling now! I think this next year will be an interesting one with lots of good things in store for David. Possibly more international touring too.
    embe…I hope that you stay as warm in those freezing temps as your heart is. Just got to read your very warm and eloquent, beautiful words.
    Am thankful for many things, including David’s gorgeous voice every time I turn on the radio these days and all the love and sharing that goes on here.
    All the best to everyone for a heartfelt and joyous Christmas!

  44. djafan says:

    Awestruck, love your recap. It’s been tough trying to put into words what an experience of pure feeling reads like, see not sure if that makes sense.

    Tofan, I’ve shared your beautiful Silent Night video with family and friends, a great way to share a little piece of this heavenly weekend.

    I’m glad I was able to say at least hello to some of you (sorry refnaf for my stalking..lol) Kizzi would have loved to have met you. I wasn’t able to make all the get togethers, was trying to split my time with husband (which btw loved the concert) and my David activities. Hoping for a next time.

    Congratulations Embe!

    Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas!!!

  45. abanana77 says:

    Just stopped in to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Hope everyone’s having an awesome couple of days to spend with family & friends!

  46. Lorna says:

    Just stopping by to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

    TOfan, refnaf, awestruck, Kizzi, abanana77 and everyone else, it was so great spending time with and meeting new David fans at MOTAB. What an incredible experience we will share forever!

    It is Christmas Day in Manila now! Feliz Navidad TheVoice 🙂

    Greatest time with my family last night, Christmas Eve. Nieces & nephews all grown up, it’s really amazing how time flies. So go do whatever it is you have been stalling to do, LOL. Carpe diem cos you never know when will be the next time you can do it!

    Be merry. Be safe. Be loved. Be loving.

    (back to the kitchen to cook, cook, cook!)

    Hello snowangelzz!! Just popping in to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I am so happy I got to see some of you last weekend. I want to say so much more right now but I must run off again. I hope you have a lovely time with your family and friends this Christmas holiday, with CFTH playing in the background <333
