I feel 100% blessed to have witnessed this amazingness tonight… to quote birthday girl Refnaf, “It was like being in heaven.”
I’ve been dreaming of the day I’d get to hear Shine A Light live and oh em gee it blew the roof off the place!
I never imagined Postcards in the Sky would make me cry but cry I did… ethereal, celestial, sublime.
Please do check out the lovely and amazing Tina’s channel for more vids.
Just when you think David can’t possibly improve on performance perfection, he proves you wrong… wow.
He just looked so HAPPY up there … I think that was the best part of all.
What did you guys think???
The way the choir rocked out to Up All Night was a blast… my face hurt from smiling so much… and David was beaming ear to ear, you could tell he got a big kick out of it.
According to the program, the Music Director had been trying to get David to sing with his orchestra and chorus since before his mission… he and his wife became huge fans during Idol… pretty cool.
Loving all the comments from members of the chorus and symphony who were blown away by his talent… and just him. 😍😍😍😍😍
Loved Postcards In The Sky…you’re right it was celestial… almost expected angels to fly around dropping postcards on the audience. 🙂 PS – is anyone else in love with the Whoa-ohh in this song?
Oh and that falsetto in Shine A Light…gaahh!
Here’s the full story from the music director… so cool!
Wow, what a special and fantastic concert! What fun and what beauty in the songs and the arrangements. Love the symphony and the chorus uniting with David in his songs. Shine A Light was amazing! BSMS was so beautiful made me tear up just from watching the video. All the videos I’ve seen were incredible….incredibly good! Thanks TOfan and Tina (and others) who took videos, so, so appreciated.
David’s voice and his songs deserve to be shared with a symphony and chorus, just like the greats. He IS one of the greats! I couldn’t help but think while watching the videos that this would have been wonderful if it was filmed and then maybe shown on PBS.
Happy for all who were there and had this special experience. Definitely was special for David and obviously for the wonderful symphony and chorus. A lot of rehearsal must have gone in to this.
Thanks so much for sharing, would have loved to have been there!
Oh and Happy (Belated) Birthday refnaf, you had a very special and memorable day!
Great recap and videos. Thank you for sharing TOfan. Reminds me a bit of seeing Davie sing with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir. He never fails to give a heart felt and authentic performance. I love this milieu for him and the back story of the director wanting him since Idol days…so wonderful to see appreciators of art and music acknowledge David’s artistry. I am, as always, struck with the thought of how lucky I am to be a fan!

Thanks, Janey & Tina!
And just seeing this now, but awesome blog post from a high-school friend of David’s who was at the Olympia show:
Amazing Yakima vids… thanks, Janey!!!
2 or 3 days later and I’m still out of words. No words.
Beautiful words from one of the arrangers! Thanks, Tina! 😍😍😍

Oh my heck….
Guess what I am listening to today??!!
I am so amazed by these last few concerts and feel SO blessed to have been able to go… gosh it was perfect!
How can we handle how he raises the bar EVERY SHOW??!!
