Group Birthday Card for David!

Thanks to VJ for providing the link here.  You have until Dec. 9 to sign this group card.

Joy on a Loop

And wonders and wo-o-o-nders / oooooooooooof hi-i-is / h-i-s loooooooooooove!!!

Yeah, I’m back to my ODD Christmas from the Heart habits.  And I’m stuck on David’s ridiculously “takin’ it to church” long notes on this baby! 🙂

In other news, David was featured on EXTRA (how did I miss this? Of course, I wouldn’t know what channel I would have found this treat)

David and Friends: A PBS Christmas Special

Imagine, if you will, David achieving enough status to warrant a Christmas TV special of his own.

He would start the show with a powerhouse rendering of “Joy to the World,” then rouse the crowd with a merry take on “Pat-a-Pan.”

He would slow things down with “Silent Night,” then welcome his first guest, Charice, to join him on a duet of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

David’s generosity would allow her to sing her own carol offering, say something like “Do You Hear What I Hear?”

Afterwards, a children’s choir opens with the first few notes of “Ave Maria” before The Voice joins them, and then a fun take on “Sleigh Bells” with the same choir.

David then introduces his next musical guest, his very own idol, Natalie Cole, who honors him with a duet to her late father’s classic, “The Christmas Song” (which, of course, David would let the audience know he used to call this “The Chestnutt Song”).

From there, Natalie will offer a rendition of “It’s Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home),” and David joins her in a final duet with “Carol of the Bells” (replete with the children’s choir  and a handbell choir – can’t you just imagine it?).

In the second half, David begins “What Child is This” a capella before the orchestra crescendoes with him.  Then, he sings “Riu Riu Chiu” before he is joined on a duet of “Feliz Navidad” with his next musical guest, Jordin Sparks, who offers her own rendition of “O Come All Ye Faithful,” before joining David in another duet  with “The First Noel.”

Towards the end, David invites all his guests to join him on “Melodies of Christmas” with the choir, before his grand finale of “O Holy Night.”

Not a bad way to spend your holiday evening, eh?

All I know is, this is two years in a row in which I’ve been privileged to watch David on my tele during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  He has now become a staple, and I look forward to the day when he gets his own Christmas special rather than be someone’s guest.

“America’s Greatest Young Singing Sensation”

Isn’t it grand to have someone like Orla Fallon say this about our David? 🙂
