Rewind back to the Spring of 2011… in Nashville during the Invisible Children Break The Silence event when David joined Landon Pigg on stage to sing “Sound Of Silence.” Although unrehearsed (or very little) and maybe not the most “perfect” duet, David’s harmonic control and delivery were beautiful and en pointe. His humble and subtle command of the song once again demonstrated the innate musicality and talent of David. Definitely worth revisiting.
Speaking of silence on a Sunday, we’d like to let everyone know that our Sundays here on FOD will be returning to true “Silent Sundays” in the future. Unless a performance or announcement occurs on a Saturday (requiring follow-up), or in the case of recognizing a special holiday which falls on a Sunday, we’ll not be uploading a “Sunday” post. Comments will remain open continuing on the Friday/Saturday thread, and Pastel will be back with a new post on Monday or Tuesday. We’ll still be around, just in a more “silent Sunday” form. Wishing everyone a great day of “rediscovery” ahead!
I’m re-posting pics because I am currently working off of a computer in the business center of a hotel. This computer doesn’t allow me to access pics or media of any kind, so I’ve had to use a picture already in the archives. I have been woefully out of touch because I haven’t had access to be online lately, but from the little that I’ve seen on twitter and in comments, it seems like David has been weathering a storm of immense proportions!
I did read the tweets that started it all and his apology on the OS – Pastel did a wonderful write-up of her opinion on the matter, and I agree with her. Since Joanie has yet to post (this is Tuesday night) I’m sure she’ll have something equally wonderful to say. Through all of this, one thing is crystal clear to me – that no matter the reason we are fans, his voice, music, personality, humility, sense of humor, love of faith, family and food – after 7 long years, we are still here, celebrating together not only as fans, but as friends and what has become for many of us, an extended family.
No matter what happens with David’s career in the future, no matter what controversies may arise, or disagreements and drama that may come, I am forever grateful that David brought us all together. He has been the catalyst for so many amazing adventures (not all of them involving the police and a speeding ticket) but because of him, I have had a chance to meet all of you – some in person, most of you virtually, and you have all become an intergral part of my life – the memories I have of every single moment will last a lifetime. I am a forever fan, and nothing will ever change that!
Sorry that I’m re-posting a quote too – but I had to use what was in the archives – plus this quote seems particularly pertinent and the perfect way to end this Friday with Friends post.
