 Best Of The Best: Today, Best Hymn Performance

A perfectly fitting category for Easter Sunday as our “Best Of The Best” daily dose of the Virtual Concert continues. Today’s feature is :Best performance of a hymn

 The nominees are:
1. Be Still My Soul ~Rexburg, 2010
2. How Great Thou Art ~Youth Group, 2009
3. I Am a Child Of God ~SLC VIP. 2011
4. I’m Trying To Be Like Jesus ~ Beaver Creek, 2011
And the Winner is…

Such a beautiful, reverent, and heartfelt performance by David. What I liked most about this performance from Rexburg (and oh how I wish I’d been able to be there in person) was that David chose to share this hymn with the fans…it was an expression of his faith and truly a gift from the heart of this “everyday missionary.”

Kari’s Excellent EU Adventures Continue!

Kari is spending Easter 2014 in Cologne Germany!!! So Charming!!!

(from Wiki) Cologne  is Germany’s fourth-largest city (after BerlinHamburg, and Munich), and is the largest city both in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia and within the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Area, one of the major European metropolitan areas with more than ten million inhabitants.

Cologne is located on both sides of the Rhine River. The city’s famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) is the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Cologne. The University of Cologne (Universität zu Köln) is one of Europe’s oldest and largest universities.[2]

**What a lovely charming city to spend a holiday in!! I’d guess Kari’s family at home is missing her greatly, yet very happy that she’s able to see so much of our beautiful world! I’m excited for David to one day, also visit these charming European countries and cities so full of culture, music, architecture, sites, and history!! ~And ohhhh how they’ll love to hear him sing!!!!

** Thank you, Kari for giving us a wonderful glimpse of your Easter adventure in Cologne, Germany today!! Hope you run into some DA fans while in Germany! :)

Where’s David? At the Cheesecake Factory!

David has been out and about town as confirmed by people tweeting random sightings of him.  This girl had a reason to be jealous of her mom!

Here’s Proof!

Fan responses started rolling in:

The Cheesecake Factory pic led to another twitter discussion about David’s belt – it looked familiar, and I thought he wore it in a Bench photo shoot – I was WRONG – but I didn’t mind having to scroll through all the Bench photos to find that out lol!  We do our research here!!

Mary Dee came to the rescue with 2 pics of David wearing the same (or very similar) belt while in the Philippines filming Nandito Ako.

Here are a few vids from David’s visit to South Mall – you can see THE BELT!

Where’s David? Lake Catholic High School

– Did David sing Crush here?

Well we know that David isn’t a grad of Lake Catholic High School, but it’s possible that he did stop by for an impromptu concert, or at least a song – his baby, Crush!

Kelli Got To Meet David!

Yesterday we posted a pic of David with a pretty blonde girl and everyone wondered who she was?  She’s the Executive Assistant at Seventy3 Creative and she tweeted to let Archie fans know that she’s only a friend!

So there you have it – mystery solved!  She’s says she’s just a fan, though she appears to also be a fangirl!

This next pic is not of David – but the David-look-alike, Austin Mahone!  Austin cut his hair for the cover of his new song and some people think he looks like David – what do you think?

MoTab: Easter Handel’s Messiah

Several Archies tweeted the link to this beautiful Easter version of the Hallelujah Chorus – makes me wish that the MoTab would invite David back as a guest artist!

Ready For Easter?

As we all hurry to boil eggs and get the Easter egg dye ready, find the Easter baskets and plastic eggs to fill with candy for the egg hunt and put the finishing touches on a delicious Easter dinner, we are reminded of a certain someone who would soon be donning a bunny suit and scampering into a waiting van with a little hop-skip and shut the door!

– screencap from Nandito Ako

Who would like to find this in their Easter Basket?

Or this?


Maybe this will do?

Hopefully the Easter Bunny is good to you and brings you all kinds of goodies!

And may the blessings of Easter be with all of you!

*  *  *  *  *

Wishing everyone a happy Celebration Saturday as we prepare for Easter tomorrow!  I wonder if David will be participating in an Easter Egg hunt?  Seeing the Bunny Suit makes me want to watch Nandito Ako again!  I’d like to find a NA dvd in my Easter Basket!

Joanie will be back tomorrow with the Easter Sunday post, so enjoy a blessed Easter with family and friends and gear up for next week when we’ll hopefully get more tweets, pics or even a vlog!  Happy Easter everyone!
