So, apparently the mp3 for sale for “Do You Hear What I Hear” (on both CDBaby and iTunes) was released without David’s permission.
Here’s the story from Kari’s twitter timeline:
@HUNNZY it’s an illegal release and has been reported on iTunes and CDbaby @mlpb3 is correct there was NO permission from DA or team.
@kariontour @HUNNZY @mlpb3 thanks Kari for the info!
@kariontour @HUNNZY @mlpb3 it is beautiful though.
@kimak it is and maybe if they had asked for permission we could’ve worked something out but then illegally posting is wrong.
@wordsfrommysoul @kariontour @mlpb3 yes thank you Kari just promoting @DavidArchie never dreamed it was illegal
@HUNNZY & I love u all still promoting. We will have plenty in the future but trust if he or team haven’t promoted it most likely is illegal
@wordsfrommysoul we hope! It’s sad they do it to him. He has such a big heart.
I was fortunate enough to attend that Interfaith concert and “Do You Hear What I Hear” was definitely a highlight.
I have to say that I thought it was good of David to even participate in that show. It was fun but, dare I say it, amateurish compared to his own shows and other productions he’s been involved in.
(I mean, it featured a guy in a sheer white leotard dangling from a ribbon (no, not David).)
Like a lot of you, I bought the CDbaby version, not realizing it was a “pirate” track. Because (a) Loved the arrangement and the performance; and (b) Thought it was supporting David; and (c) I admit it … just so dang impatient to get music from the guy.
He’s worth waiting for, I’m just not good at waiting. 🙂
What do you guys think?
