Oh, sweet peaches, stop what you’re doing and watch this!

ohmyheck… I was catching up on Kayla’s amazing videos and stumbled on this one that I didn’t even know existed… (yes, I have been living under a rock, it seems).

I am sitting here at work tearing up at how beautiful this is. I love everything about it. The way he floats from note to note… how effortlessly jazzilicious it is… Mel’s piano… his diva hand conducting himself to greater heights of magnificence… how he plays with the melody like it’s a shiny new toy … his tone, people, his tone, oh man, it’s like nectar, actual nectar…. the way Nathan looks over smiling and appreciating the sublime talentย of this guy (in my mind, that’s what he’s doing, he could, however, be figuring out his grocery list).

Who the heck sounds like this this at SOUND CHECK?!?!? David, that’s who.

Anywayyyyyys… I need to listen again…and again….

Thank you, Kayla, for capturing this!!!!
Very deep thoughts from David here… ones I can really relate to … bothers me to hear him say, “As bad of a person I feel I am sometimes” ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Christmas show tonight in Orange County, California! There are still tickets left so come and join us! What a beautiful place the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa is. ๐Ÿ˜ต In today's 25 days of Christmas for #lighttheworld I've been thinking about how easy it is for me to hold grudges and let things from the past get to me and affect me. I let those things bring anger, bring fear, bring anxiety. I'm setting a goal to let each of these grudges go! It takes dedication. It's remembering that commitment and sticking to it. I'm excited though. There is power in forgiveness. Each time I think "it's just not possible under these circumstances. Not this time. Not yet. " I think of Christ and His power to forgive. He believes we have the power to change, and I know I have the power to change and let go of those things and moments that are holding me back in fear and resentment. Who and what are you holding and grudging against? Think about how there is power to forgive. And as soon as you learn to forgive, you will feel that power of forgiveness for yourself too and it's AMAZING! "Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven." (Luke 6:37) as hard as that is, I remember that Christ could even forgive those who hanged Him on the cross. As bad of a person I feel I am sometimes, I remember He can forgive me, and I can realize that the moment I can do the same and forgive someone else who has wronged meโ€“even if that person I need to forgive is meโ€“I feel the healing that comes from forgiving. Believe it is in you! Because it is. If you feel you can't, say a prayer and ask for that strength to forgive and it will come. Whether you're receiving it or giving it, What a gift forgiveness is! christmasconcert #costamesa #oc #california #forgive #forgiveness #Christmas

The lovely & amazing Tina gave me the heads up on this amazing “reaction” vid… another MUST WATCH, lol … LOOOOVE this guy!!!

    Pure heaven! โค๏ธ

  3. Spirit says:

    I hadn’t seen this either! Yep…that tone is simply divine! No way could Nathan be thinking of his grocery list while watching this mesmerizing display of pure talent!

  4. tawna21 says:

    Dang it!! Smoothest, milk chocolate voice on the planet! I don’t think I’ve ever heard him, as you said TOfan, “… floats from note to note” quite like this. Gorgeousness!!! Thanks for finding it!

  5. TOfan says:

    That Ave Maria about killed me… Indy flashbacks… one of the comments on Nathan’s FB live vid called David’s voice “celestial” … yup



  6. tawna21 says:

    Ave Maria — no words, none, zero, just chills and tears! “Celestial” … agreed! Nathan said “perfect singing”, “incredible”, “magic” …. agreed! What have we done that makes us lucky enough to be the fans of this amazing man with a voice and spirit that reaches Heaven!?! I don’t know, but I’m never un-crossing my fingers!! โ™ฅโ™ฅ

  7. TaterZen says:

    David’s Ave Maria is soul singing of a different kind. Celestial indeed.
    What else can this guy do? He is always bettering his best. I am grateful to be his fan.

  8. Between The Christmas Song and then Ave Maria I think I may have died…..

      • TOfan says:

        you guyyyyssss, I’m so glad he sang it again and Nathan captured it so I could watch in the privacy of home and bawl my eyes out, versus sitting RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF HIM and having to sob internally… still not over it.

        • @myheartsong says:

          YES!! Real. Actual. Bawling. Which I can do in the privacy of my own home. And do. Apparently on a regular basis this Christmas season. I blame David.

  10. TOfan says:

    I just added @OnAirJake’s story of finally meeting David to the end of the post… love love LOOOOOVE it! And someone Jake was chatting with on his timeline earlier told him how much they loved David, too, and called him “a pure cinnamon roll” ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ YES!!!!!

  11. peppertara says:

    Oh David’s voice on these songs…..don’t think it could get more perfect than that, honestly. His tone and expressive way of delivering these songs is incredible! Love that video of The Christmas Song, whoah…..reminds me of the first (and only) VIP I attended way back when and his singing….. I just sat there with my mouth open in awe and wonder, nothing like it live. Ave Maria, oh my, absolutely gorgeous, so glad we got to hear that, Nathan is such a good guy.
    Love hearing the reactions to David and how great is this…..Jake got to meet David, love all his comments!
    Thanks for all the great updates TOfan…and yes it’s nice that you can (we all can) bawl our eyes out if we need to rather than “sob internally”. So true!
    David…..”a pure cinnamon roll” haha, yes he is, just as sweet as can be and such a treat.

  12. TOfan says:

    Just finished watching David’s then Nathan’s FB live chat…I think David hated every minute, lol …but I loved every minute hahaha…Nathan is a good influence! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love how he described driving with David and listening to music and D. will just bust out amazing phrases…hope he does turn on FB live when that happens, like he threatened David LOLOL!

    • Grammyj says:

      I loved it too and agree with you. I love Nathan’s influence on David. I’m sure he got David to do the Facebook live and definitely got him to sing “The Prayer”. It sounded so beautiful from the car! They are a dynamic duo! I’m also glad that David is about done with the album which is going to be fabulous. The tour has sold well which bodes well for more tours and hopefully to more parts of the country.

    • TOfan says:

      • janey79 says:

        i tried posting the peri link to my twitter account in real time but ’twas an epic fail! so sorry guys! and i ran out of battery juice even though i had over 90% to start with due to D’s pre-numb monologue. blame it on the D’Arch ๐Ÿ™‚ henceforth, i am grateful to Nathan for posting the encore. he seems to really get that christmas is the season for caring and sharing.

  17. peppertara says:

    Wow, such an incredible amount of goodness here and from all the fans who provided videos, periscope, updates, photos….. David and Nathan’s fun updates, all so good! Thanks so much TOfan and everyone who shared with us all, such a treat!
    Oh my goodness, watched janey79’s periscope….beautiful,.thank you Janey. Such a funny, funny moment with Kari’s little prank on David, hilarious! Think it is after he sings his amazing, jazzy White Christmas and starts his little talk. LOL.
    I really am going to miss this tour and I didn’t even attend a show! So much fun, so much beauty, magic and filled with so much Christmas spirit.

    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone!
