My apologies for this post as it will be a little out of whack and order. Here towards the top of the post I’ll have the Christmas show treats from Calgary.  Security was very tight and as announced by the Emcee before the show recording and photos were prohibited (aka Archies use their best ninja skillz). 😘

Mary Lou bravely, unselfishly, and heroically worked to capture a good amount of the audio from the show; everything shared was so wonderful!! Thank you so very much, Mary Lou. Thanks so much, too to Deb (Snowangelz) who captured a few vids as well!!!

Below you’ll find pics, clips, and vids from the concert.  [Check out more on Mary Lou’s Periscope channel HERE]

The Setlist for Christmas In Calgary! 

Thank you to Mary Lou and to Nancy Thornbush for this pic! What a wonderfully crafted setlist for the show. It contained nice mixture of Christmas songs-  and was sprinkled throughout with some pop and David’s new “Postcards In The Sky” music as well! It made for a wonderful balance!

Song for a Winter’s Night

A new cover!!! Especially chosen I’d guess as it was written by Gordon Lightfoot, a Canadian singer songwriter. David pays close attention to those things~ like when he chose to sing Prince’s 1999 in Minnesota. 

Though written and originally performed by Gordon Lightfoot, the song became a staple cover for Sarah McLachlan. It’s a beautiful song with lyrics that speak of missing someone on a winter’s night…of longing to be with that person again… on a snowy winter’s night. “I’d be happy just to hold your hand in mine~”

 Thinking of the lyrics as I read them brought tears to my eyes… I’m not sure if there was any connection, but the song reminded me that Mel Shore (David’s friend and keyboardist for this show) recently lost her husband and their 2nd yr anniversary would have been last night. ….”Just to be with you…” Could it have also been a gift of compassion and love for Mel last night? As I wasn’t there I have no idea, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the song David chose last night was also in honor of Mel’s late husband and the special love they shared. 

I shouldn’t think so much… nevertheless, it’s a beautiful quietly elegant song. Sometimes covering a song for the first time, though, has it’s difficulties… Memorization of the lyrics, the piano accompaniment, inflections, emotions, and the desire to please those you’re singing it for can all make it a bit nerve wracking that first time.

The first verse was gorgeous! So pretty … then when the second verse came he began to blank out on lyrics a bit; he improvised (humorously and humbly) and it’s as if the whole crowd reacted by reaching out to embrace him, to show him his efforts were appreciated and that it was ok…   It was an instance when David showed there could be lovely shining moments in the midst of  imperfection. He continued and completed the song so gracefully. Deb, thank you for capturing the audio of David’s performance. I loved it and hope to hear him sing it live one day, too. <3333

Calgary Christmas David singing with (awarded) white stetson hat

David was awarded a white Stetson hat which exemplifies a great love and respect by the Calgary community. It has been awarded to “kings queens, princes, olympic athletes, etc.” It is a great honor to receive and David is the First American Idol to be awarded one!!!

Instructions for the hat included *wearing the label (like “your underware”) to the back. Also hold it open side up so the “luck won’t spill out.” He was additionally told to to wear it so that it sits ~ 2 inches above his eyebrows.  Lastly, David had to agree to “tell the world about his time in Calgary” before putting the hat on. πŸ™‚ Thank you also in a big way to Deb (Snowangelz) who captured this all on camera and shared it on YT!

If there were ever magical places where wishes could come true, for David I think this is it! I can’t comprehend the oodles of sheer happiness that store must have encased while David browsed through the isles and spent time with the characters & stuffed Pokemon characters and other animals.

 

I found my happy place. It’s at the @nintendo store at Rockefeller Center in New York.
