I’m sneaking time at work to post this because we have no power at home right now (#icestorm2013). I am not complaining though (#lies).
It’s actually been kind of cool (#literally) to be forced away from the computer/TV etc. and to bundle up and wrap gifts by candlelight. And thanks to battery-powered speakers hooked up to my iPod, I’ve had these mp3s (#asldkfjalfdkajslkfj) to warm my soul.
I don’t think anything David’s done to date has hit me quite like these have. I’m not sure why (and I don’t want to analyze it too much to break the spell), I just know it’s true. I also know I’m not alone. (I see you all out there hitting “replay”!) And isn’t his “Buenos tardes” like the “Hey guys, it’s David here!” we’ve missed so much??
(This one’s further away but the sound is good!)
Yes, this is all I’m posting about because I’m still a little too not over these performances… O Ven is truly heaven sent (#right??).
P.S. More breaking news!!!! My power finally came back on aaaaaand Jeffrey Christ posted the much-demanded-by-David-fans video of OHN in the MTV offices (with the lovely and amazing Jim Cantiello)!!!!! Read his whole post here.
And thanks to the amazing Abrra!
THANK YOU! I’ve been waiting for someone (you) lol, to write about this because it’s all I want to talk about really.
So about an hour ago or so, our power came back on, and you’ll never guess what I did. Oh yes, I went youtubing and this was the first thing I listened to. Several times. IT’S AS GOOD AS I REMEMBER FROM 2 DAYS AGO LOL.
(Stay warm! And steady!)
Sent #right from heaven!! Thank you for the translation! I’ve been meaning to do that just haven’t got to it yet 🙂 Merry Warm and Toasty Christmas!
Yep,the rehearsal might be my fave thing ever. There is just something about it, perfect for his voice,the little lilty thing he does, it’s just all perfect.
I don’t think I will ever get over O Ven!! Especially the rehearsal! Right from the first listen, my heart hurt!! Felt like it was going to burst!! Is this what he’s been doing to the people he’s been working with in Chile?? Because now I’m feeling a little sorry for them that he’s leaving soon (just a little tho cuz he needs to come home!!)!! I had it on repeat for an hour and half on my drive home from work the first night we were served this little gem!! Couldn’t get enough…still can’t. Never going to recover from this one and don’t even want to try….
Thanks so much for the lyrics and the translation. I’ve been hoping to get the exact lyrics he sang. Like everyone else, I can’t get enough of it. Such a beautiful heartfelt performance.
His singing of this song really gets me…. I have played it over and over…. You are #right, it is heaven sent> and a blessing so big I am speechless. I think next Christmas a Spanish Christmas album would be out of this world (heavenly)
I also thank you for the lyrics …. I was actually trying to find them and failed!!
I hope you are keeping warm with THE voice melting EVERYTHING
I think I`’ve worn out a spot on my iPod. OH my goodness. His voice is so rich in this song. What a gift we received!!!
I have watched the reheasal video so many times I could pick out everyone of the people listening on a crowded city street. David shines. No words can describe how beautiful it is. (I’ve tried.) This video helps me better understand why I literally count the days until he is back home.
as;dlfkafdlkadflakdflkdfj Jeffrey Christ posted the long-awaited MTV OHN video last night so I added it to the post above! David says he’ll do a “carol-ly” version and WOW, just WOW!!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! JOYEUX NOËL!!!! FELIZ NAVIDAD!!! AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE!!!!!
What a lovely post to see on Christmas Eve! O Ven melts ice storms, oh yes it does and I’m sure can melt the coldest of hearts too. Another exquisite rendition of a song by David that needs to be heard and felt, beyond description, really.
So glad your power came back on TOfan! Gee, that OHN that was just posted by Jeffrey Christ is incredible! Singing in the doorway like that and a “carol-ly” version? Wow.
Grateful for all these beautiful gifts and your lovely write up TOfan.
Merry Christmas to all, have a joyous, peaceful and beautiful day of sharing and celebration!
You too, Pepp! ♥ ♥ ♥
The grandkids spent yesterday “tubing” in the snowy mountains. Not to be outdone by that popular holiday activity, I spent yesterday “tubing” at the computer. Can’t seem to get enough Archuleta Christmas this year. Thanks for posting all these seasonal goodies. Yummy.
Merry Christmas to all of you. May your holidays be filled with love, joy and peace. And music.
oooo I really want to go tubing! both kinds!!! 🙂
My first stop, video of the whole Concierto Navidad!
MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!!!!
Merry Christmas SAz’s!
Merry Christmas everyone! We’ve had an abundance of gifts this year and my heart is full-to-bursting with ❤ for all of you.
me too, Ms. B., me too … and then this!
Merry Christmas to everyone here at SnowAngelz! Have a joyous day!
Merry Christmas, sweetonda!
And the gifts just keep on coming!
Thank you so much Deb for posting the translation! I was wondering how it was the same/different from our traditional English lyrics. I love the words and it’s kind of a thrill to hear him pronounce his own name in Spanish.
I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve watched this, tho I tend to stop it at 2:30 and go back to the beginning over and over. Is it just me or should David always have heavenly sounding trumpets (like at 1:33– or are those French horns? Whatever, he should always have brass and strings) at the ready for his performances? I thought the same thing at the end of his MoTab “Joy to the World.” And for that matter, he should always have a choir to give him the intro he had at the beginning of “Joy to the World” just to make it clear that he’s amazing. Then he could go on to sing “Touch My Hand” or whatever pop song he wanted.
What blows me away about this is that he just walks in, picks up the paper and gets down to business like it’s no big deal that he’s got a giant angel voice busting out inside him like a genie in a bottle. It’s like some crazy super power. Ay yi yi. I can’t even.
“he should always have a choir to give him the intro he had at the beginning of ‘Joy to the World’ just to make it clear that he’s amazing. Then he could go on to sing ‘Touch My Hand’ or whatever pop song he wanted.” for sure!!! 🙂
