Gone – Another little piece of my heart – GONE. Stolen by a young man with a killer voice… when he …
… calmly, yet somewhat bashfully, acknowledges his introduction and then humbly ‘tips his hat’ to the people who put so much work into the foundation, he swells my heart with pride.
… sings “Contigo en la Distancia” with an even deeper passion than ever before that leaves my heart breathless.
… extends his hand to help his Mom up on stage for “To Be With You” and fills my heart with warmth at the respect that David exhibits.
… rolls his eyes as Momma Lupita leans over to give him a kiss on the cheek, which makes my heart laugh as he endures the embarrassment.
… makes a major gaff hitting the wrong chord in TBWY and says OOH, refocuses and carries on to deliver the rest of the song with an intensity that has my heart sighing.
… asks the crowd just before he sings Crush “What’s so funny?” after calling Jimmy Smits “a good egg” … it tickles my heart to know he has made friends in the Hispanic arts community.
I gladly give up as much of my heart as needed to be privileged to witness the joy that this young man continues to deliver to me just by being himself.
