Write Us A Song!

Both Gracie Schram and Isabeau Miller posted a pic of themselves from a songwriting session with David!  We’re not sure who the song was written for exactly, but fans are hoping for a duet!  But one thing we DO know is that there is a new song written!  And David was involved! :-)

David Will Perform At Chapman!

Thanks to DFT for getting current info about tickets for the Baccalaureate Interfaith Service where David will be speaking and, according to the website, it states David WILL PERFORM! :-)

- On 4/25 click for tix

- On 4/25 click for tix – or call them!

This is the first confirmation we’ve seen that David will perform in addition to speaking!  SoCal Archies this is an awesome opportunity to see & hear David!  There will apparently be a “small fee” for the public to purchase tickets to the event, however graduates may request up to 5 free tickets for themselves and family/friends.  Does anyone know a student who will be graduating from Chapman this year??

The Musco Center did not specify the price of tickets for the public , so you’ll need to be FAST on Monday 4/25/16 – call first, since that seems like the fastest way to connect to the Musco Center – but if you get a busy signal, click on the graphic above and purchase your tickets online!  Go Getters Go!! Good Luck Everyone!!

Maybe a LIVE Webcast??

There is a link to a recorded “Live Webcast” of the 2015 Baccalaureate Interfaith Service!  You can watch it on the website now!  This bodes well for those of us who can’t make it to the event (due to DISTANCE) that we may be able to tune in to a live webcast of the 2016 event! *crossing fingers, toes, eyes and everything else that can be crossed!

I Painted a Little Picture

Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 10.10.43 PM

Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 10.11.08 PM

Truly an artist in every sense of the word, David set the art world on fire when he posted this little masterpiece on Instagram!  Ok, he’s taking a painting class, and he did a really good job on this animal!  Ever the man of mystery, David challenged us to “…decide what kind it is.”  The guesses rolled in fast an furious as people commented on the IG post – 221 comments so far!  And can we say 4 winkie emojis! ;-)

So what kind of animal do people think it is?

Guess the Animal

Clockwise from top right:

1.  Polar Bear
2.  Skunk
3.  Tapir
4.  Aardvark
5.  Badger
6.  Cow
7.  Anteater

Giving David some license for his color choices, the painting looks most like a badger – at least I think so!  Perhaps it’s his rendition of a Pokemon Badger since the guy next to him is drawing a Pokemon character named Snorlax lol!

It’s great that David is trying new things and stretching his creativity in different ways – who knows? We might get a new song out of this venture – a song about animals, or painting, or trying new things!

And that line where David says “Never considered myself an artist…”  well David, we’ve got some news for ya’ – you ARE an artist! A creator of beauty everywhere you go in this world – whether it’s captivating an audience with your soulful voice, writing songs with messages that resonate across your diverse fanbase, or trying your hand at painting and encouraging others to find their creative voice – David you are an Artist for the Ages, and we think your blue-fur animal is very cool!

Screen Shot 2016-04-19 at 12.14.32 AM

Keiko has eagle eyes and she spotted a very familiar and iconic David drawing – it was small and somewhat disguised on his paint palette, but it’s clearly our beloved Squiggly Pig! I am still praying to the Masters of Merch that someday we can get a nice t-shirt & hoodie featuring our favorite curly-tailed oinker!

Anyone Heading to Slovenia?

Another concert opportunity awaits for fans in Europe – or fans who are willing to travel a long distance! Joanie found some promo for the event – though you’ll need Google translate to read most of it!  This looks like it will be an amazing event!

Many of you remember Jeff Leblanc opened for David on his My Kind of Christmas Tour.  At the end of the tour they performed a memorable duet of Waiting on the World to Change that capped off an amazing tour – the last one David would do before leaving on his mission.

I had the pleasure of attending one of Jeff’s solo performances when he played in LA – the efam made a vacation out of it and we had a blast!  If you live in SoCal or plan to be there on June 3rd, check out Jeff at Lestat’s in sunny San Diego!

TOFW Orlando Revisited

Thank you again to everyone who shared their pics and vids from this amazing event!  I spent a lot of time watching and re-watching these performances, and David is if fine vocal form!  He just keeps getting better and better!

I’m posting the full version of Bridge Over Troubled Water because it’s AMAZING and I love the little recovery David makes when he comes in a little early on one of the voices – he’s the master of the rebound and continues singing without missing a beat!  There has been much discussion about the woman who is scrolling through her phone during the entire performance – but I just ignored that and let myself be transported by David’s beautiful voice.

David also delivered a reverent and touching rendition of Be Still My Soul – we’ve heard him sing this song a number of times, and each time is uniquely beautiful.

These songs made me think of those who might be going through a challenging or sad time, and David singing these songs really brings a sense of calm and peace.

Screen Shot 2016-04-19 at 2.30.40 AM

Screen Shot 2016-04-19 at 2.30.48 AMTickets are required and they are now charging a “small fee” presumably due to the overwhelming demand! Many fans have been waiting for David to make an appearance in California – and he’ll be there! We’ll bring you info regarding how to get tickets and the cost of tickets – so stay tuned!

Well that’s a wrap for this Terrific Tuesday post!  Looking forward to the TOFW Cincinnati event – there will be fans in the house so we’ll get pics and maybe vids!  I hope David continues with his painting – maybe he’ll design the cover for his new album!  I’ll be here all week updating the post with news as it comes in!
