I’m sending positive vibes, thoughts, and prayers to those of you needing healing right now. I especially want to highlight with this post what I’ve often considered to be the best feature of David’s Voice: its power to heal.
I know my instant love for David came when I first saw and heard him – and it’s very possible that I was most susceptible to the Voice because at the time I needed the Voice to heal, even if it only turned out to be emotional rather than physical healing at the time.
So, with this in mind, I thought I would highlight what I consider to be his best musical healing moments.
God! The plaintive cry in his voice gets me every single time!
At a time when David himself probably needed healing, this heartbreak version is just too dang much, but man, does it soothe my heart all the same!
Fields of Gold:
The Voice takes me places with this one, and not just in “fields of gold.” Although he spins gold out of runs and melodies.
Once we get into the Christmas songs, we’re just simply getting into musical healing territory, most notably with “Ave Maria.”
O Holy Night:
OK, so I realize this video might be painful for some of y’all but man, oh man, his rendition of “O Holy Night” after making his announcement about serving a mission for his church is the best I’ve ever heard from him, and in a strange way, it’s the version I find myself going back to over and over. What can I say? It heals me, because I know it comes from a very sincere place, and The Voice reveals itself for all the world to hear.
Joy to the World:
His glory notes at the end always pull me up on a higher plane. He takes a popular carol “To Church!” How many pop singers can do that?
I swear, every time I hear this version of “Silent Night,” I know this is why I wait. #DA2014 indeed! I cry like a baby every time. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. This is, without a doubt, David at his absolute best! Absolutely spirit-filled and stunning! He simply knows when to lay it on and when to pull back. What a vocal genius!
