Did not expect the Fairfield, CT, show to be one of my all-time faves, but it was.
Did not expect the tiny Fairfield Theater to have some of the best acoustics I’ve heard in a while, but it did.
Did not expect David to respond to a fan’s “This is my third show” sign in the audience (2 Christmas and 1 pop show) by comparing the trifecta to “a reverse ice-cream sandwich” (cold ones on the outside) but he totally did.
What I did expect was David to make me cry… again… as he floated me into the magical snow globe world of “Winter in the Air.”
And raise me up into the heavens on every He Is Born “HALLELUJAH!”
And rocket me onto my feet and turn me into a dancing fool for “Christmas Every Day.”
What a wild, fun crowd! They spontaneously sang Happy Birthday to David and wouldn’t stop until the end, he was totally tickled by it and when David laughs, the world is a brighter place, am I right, my friends?
The VIP questions were deep and philosophical, about his view of forgiveness … he spoke about how therapy has helped him with that, and that he repeats daily affirmations, such as “I love you, bless you, I forgive you” so that these feelings manifest themselves within him.
He talked about what he learned on his mission and what challenged him (being vulnerable enough to present his broken self to God).
DJxox asked about possible duets and he said he’s reached out to peeps for that and been declined…
I NEED NAMES AND ADDRESSES AND 656865456 CREAM PIES FOR THESE MISGUIDED INDIVIDUALS!!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
He said other duets with friends just haven’t worked out yet ‘cuz of timing etc.
David was having so much fun with this crowd… turning the band intros into The Price is Right 😂…. loving everyone singing along… and acting out “ninja Jesus” moves before one song. *DEADDDDDDD*
I felt “He is Born” lift us all off the ground to touch the edge of heaven… for real, it was incredible… a mist floated around him like a cloud and I didn’t know if it was a stage effect or actual choirs of angels winging by for a celestial group hug.
I got talking to a couple of great guys behind me … relatively new fans… and when I told them he was doing a spring tour, their faces lit up and later they told me they’ll be going to one of the shows… they told me that David’s genuine concern for others and his openness and honesty about his struggles made them fans just as much as his incredible talent.
I’m going to add more later when I come back down to earth so stay tuned!!!
Merry Merry Christmas everyone!!!
Here’s the link to my Peris:
I pretty much Periscoped the whole show (in sections, and not Christmas Every Day because… come on!… of course I was up failing like a fool!). Please excuse the shakiness … when David would start to come over to our side of the stage, I’d panic and put the phone down, lol:
