So fans in time zones that have hit 10 p.m. have already heard The Prayer and apparently it’s not too shabby.
Seriously though, please share as soon as you’ve heard it, enquiring minds need to know what you think!
Plus, for any of you fortunate peeps buying tix for Denver and Boise shows, check out @muldur’s timeline on Twitter for some great tips — she’s like the seat-whisperer, lol.
45 more minutes EST until the hour of power! (not that I’m counting down or anything.:)
Oh my, what a sweet gift! Just got my notice from Itunes that “The Prayer” had been downloaded.
So beautiful to listen too! David still has that sweet, tender yet powerful voice that there is never any mistaking and Nathan sounds wonderful, a superb duet. So nice to have a clear, lovely version of this song by the two of them. A wonderful Christmas gift and I know what I will be listening to on repeat on my way to work tomorrow riding transit. In fact back to listening now!
It’s a night of gifts! Pledgemusic download came right after Itunes. Riu, Riu, Chiu! I am assuming most folks have heard this now, hope so. I am absolutely loving the acoustic version. Must listen again and absorb the rhythm, the natural flow and the beauty of it. I have always loved David, acoustic style and this sounds fabulous to me. Grateful. 🙂
pepp, where does the Pledge download come through? iTunes?
asjkhfkjahfdkajhfdkajfhakjfh DID NOT EXPECT TO LOVE IT THIS MUCH!!!!!! What I love most (besides the fact that David has the lead, which I was worried about lol) is what David’s done with the melody line… oh em gee just brilliant and so HIM, you know? Such a soulful take on what can be (to me) a yawn of a song (sorry Celine/Josh/Andrea fans). Played it for my hubs who said he needs to hear it again. ME TOO! 🙂 🙂 🙂
I’m with you. I’ve always thought that if I never heard “The Prayer” again, it would be too soon. But I have to admit that a lot of the views of this one are mine. 🙂
I assume you got the Pledge download to your Email Tofan. Ha, I know what you mean, so beautiful and yes, love the way David sings this (and Riu Riu Chiu) and the video is up on Youtube! Oh my goodness, must watch this full screen. A lovely, lovely and even more lovely video. Gosh….so very heartfelt and gorgeous to watch. It’s a night of special treats!
I agree TOfan! Just got mine this am and both songs will be on repeat for today (or more) what he can do with his VOICE!!!! He def comes through perfectly on the Prayer….. Gosh!
Love Riu Riu Chiu, the little eh eh he does at the start and the kind of scatting! He can do acoustic always as far as I’m concerned. I enjoy the purity of his voice.
Oh how good it is too get a few new tracks!! Eeeeeeeep
I think I might like Riu Riu Chiu even more than The Prayer *hides* … it was my fave from the beginning on CFTH and just love what he does with it… also think acoustic David might be my favourite. Riuuuuu ChiuuuuuuuUuuUUUUuuuu
The eh eh at the beginning gets me every time…. I think that is for us Canadians!!!
😀 That must be it!! Canadian scatting gets my vote.
Oops! Excuse my anonymity. Above comment was from the potato.
It sure is, eh! 🙂
The tone of David’s voice is so beautiful. Great job by both artists. Just one question. At the end of the song is David doing the continuous note or is he doing the other part where there is a gradual rise in tone? Either part is beautiful, I just couldn’t figure out who is singing which part.
I think the voice drifting up is David’s … oh man, does that mean I have to listen to it again to check? 😉
I’m not on my home computer (and wifi is sketchy) so I had a hard time downloading my Pledge Music preorder… and I didn’t see this:
Was it even there? (Not trying to be greedy, but in this new vlog-free era, was looking forward to an awkward “thanks, y’all” and a quick thumbs-up. 🙂 )
I kinda sorta noticed that, too, and hesitated mentioning because I was worried about sounding like I’m never satisfied. And it was a very satisfying package (even though the desktop wallpaper is kinda…well, let’s just say it didn’t replace my favorite).
Sorry to spam but something incredible just happened…. after I shared The Prayer video on FB, I was kind of surprised when my sister-in-law “liked” it… she rarely likes any of my posts, for one lol… And secondly, she loves to tease me about being a David fan. WELL… she just posted a whole separate article that features the video (ddidn’t just repost mine), saying “Absolutely breathtaking”,,,, knock me over with a feather… The Power of the Archuleta” 🙂 🙂 🙂
That is sooo awesome!!
And there’s more! A former colleague reposted the video and her friend commented “Oh my, I had fforgotten about little David — he’s all grown up! This is fabulous- it gave me chills.”
🙂 🙂 🙂
The holiday spirit is spreading! Hugs!
Simply irresistible! Thanks for sharing cool story Tofan! 😁
