All these feelings inside….

…omigosh did anyone else have a vlog flashback when they watched this????

Did it take you right back to those glory days of David’s quirky, rambly, David-y vlogs of old??

Just me? mkay.

Seriously though, just having him look relaxed and happy, wearing a Pikachu T-shirt fan gift, sitting at his “Archie Piano” with the wobbly seat and playing a song we have loved for TEN STRAIGHT YEARS.

“Quirks and perks” sums everything up perfectly, does it not? 😆 😆 😆

I can’t process it all right now. It just feels like we’ve all been through a lot together and are getting so many rewards from this guy. Our guy. (Well, not “ours” but wonderfully on loan when he’s so inclined.)

This whole week of festivities is the anniversary party I never knew I needed, you know?

Seeing David embrace the magic that Crush has been and celebrating it with such love and Davidness just makes me incredibly happy.

He’s “owning” Crush now… yes, he has amazing new music but he’s paying tribute to where he’s been, where’s he’s been WITH ALL OF US CHEERING HIM ON! … and joyfully tipping one of his many caps to the huge bop of a song that launched him on an even-bigger stage than American Idol’s.

I want to give a huge hug to whoever thought up this #10YearsofCrush campaign… sheer brilliance. It’s been a blast to see fans from back in the day come back and rediscover why they fell in love with David in the first place.

And I actually learned a few things from the great questions and answers in the Q&A… here’s my personal favourite: 🙂 🙂 🙂

    A big thumbs up to this post! Yes, it did give me a flash back to David’s vlogs of old. I still wish he’d bring them back, but his stories on Instagram are the next best thing to his vlogs. I agree that whoever had the idea to do this 10 year Crushiversary was brilliant. It’s all been done so well too. Love it,

    I actually got a little emotional watching this, sap that I am!
    It brought back so many memories of following David and his career all these years!
    It has been so much fun to follow along, he is really one of a kind!

    Loved David’s stripped down version of Crush, great post! Ten years, it really has been a fun ride.
    I think the 10 yr Crushiversary celebration is a great idea too, lots of people enjoying it along with David.
    Boy, he’s got a heck of a lot of comments to read through to pick a winner for that contest! Sweet week of celebrating. 🙂

    he sure does, Pepp!

    I’m getting verklempt reading a lot of them! Like this one:

    “ewell.t The best memory is you singing crush in my front room, using my piano, to my daughter Ashlyn. She just got home from two months in the hospital after suffering a traumatic brain injury. For you to take the time to come see her was something we will never forget and can’t thank you enough.”

    other faves:

    “davis.joseph.nathan When I was a part of Ensign Symphony and Chorus and I drummed two songs for you at Benaroya. That and when you personally tapped my shoulder and said “dude you are awesome” after the concert. I almost passed out in that moment.”

    “emilylfigueroa I went to a free concert in Myrtle Beach probably 8-9 yrs ago and you were showcasing your music from ‘The Other Side of Down’ *iconic*. So after the concert you went to give a line of fans high fives and my hand was completely out of the line, but after realizing you missed me, you backed up just to high five me! This was a super small gesture, but it’s stuck w me forever!! So thank you so much!”

    Spent some quality time reading the comments on D’s FB. Some real gems there. They tell the story of why folks are so connected to him. I highly suggest it if you have a few minutes to spare.

  6. Kizzi says:

    10 years…just too much…Just David, authentic, geniune, organic…it just keeps getting better and better. Proud, happy, full of grace, thankful are but a few descriptors that beg a voice for David’s journey from AI to today.

    He has his future in his hands and these hands are extremely trustworthy!

    Just David!
