‘Member this ultimate “ballad boy”?
Thinking of all of you no matter how many miles might separate us:
In honor of the Summer Olympics which starts today (an event that David himself says he hopes to be able to perform at one fine day), I thought I would highlight the song that introduced him to Eva Cassidy when he first heard it at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics back in 2002. Of course, by the time the Voice got a hold of it, he spun more gold!
We’ll always have Hartford, circa 2009:
Here’s another classic from the Idol Tour days, circa Salt Lake City:
Hey there, Soul Davidians! :)
I’m excited to begin my official summer vacation today, which means I’ll be away from my blog for the next few weeks.
In the mean time, I’ll just leave you all with a nice “re-run” of another Soul David Series.
Because BEGIN. sounds like we’re getting BALLAD BOY back with a vengeance, I thought I would schedule in advance a series of posts highlighting this aspect of David, which I happen to believe is his BEST feature (not his weakness).
Also, in light of the tragic shootings in Aurora, Colorado yesterday, I couldn’t help but think: we ALL need to hear more of the Voice – to sooth and to comfort us.
To start us off, I thought I would begin with his classic performance from his Idol tour days. Remember this one?
BALLAD BOY SERIES #1
Enjoy! I hope to be back in time for the release of BEGIN.! :)
