Sing Along With David & Lexi
Here’s a Friday roundup of the songs David sang at the American Diabetes Association Father of the Year Gala. Lexi posted a vid of The Prayer – one of her duets with David – and there is a Periscope vid of their other duet Dare to Dream. There are only snippets of the two solo songs David sang – a rousing rendition of When the Saints Go Marching In and his cover of Disney’s Strangers Like Me from Tarzan.
The vids have been posted in various places – on Joanie’s Wednesday FOD post, Twitter, IG and FB, but I thought rounding them all up into one post would make them easier to view. Plus that jazzy version of WTSGMI reminded me of Mardis Gras and is certainly worth a few more listens!

Posting the Disney version since some fans hadn’t heard of this song from the Tarzan soundtrack, but fans did note that David seemed to be in a Disney mood lately, recently covering He Lives In You, from The Lion King, and now Strangers Like Me from Tarzan – he also did a previous duet with Lexi of Aladdin’s A Whole New World. Wishful comments followed for a concert of Disney cover songs! David could sing the entire Disney catalog of movie soundtrack songs and people would line up for miles! (me included!)
Still on the lookout for full versions of David’s solo performances – if anyone finds them, please let us know and we’ll share them in the Saturday update post! I must say again that David’s version of WTSGMI is worthy of a full New Orleans Jazz Band spectacular! I can imagine David at Mardi Gras singing this on a float and throwing beads to screaming fans!
Hey, It could happen!
