A Not So Silent Hymn
While on the road for work last week, I took the opportunity to give my entire playlist a good spin during several long drives. It was also a good opportunity to kickstart my brain season with holiday music ~ it helps gives me a dose of reality that the season is quickly approaching.
With that extra time, I enjoy listening to some the David tracks that I give a “pass” to normally. Just like each of you, I have my faves, but I decided to give the “B-roll” some extra air time. And when you do this, the B-roll suddenly starts to increase in plays when you have those WhyHaventIListenedToThisMore? moments.
When David was on his My Kind of Christmas Tour, that exact thing happened when I heard The First Noel. Its such a simple song, with no dramatic bridges or unusual licks. It’s a lovely hymn that we can all sing at the top of our lungs together at church, but in his interpretation, David takes it down to a quiet whisper. And that humming. It’s perfectly placed. It becomes a lullaby of sorts.
Watch David transform an office of Type A’s instantly into a pile of goo at the Forbes’ mini concert in 2011. Within a span of 4 minutes no less.
How does he do that?

Thank you Kalei!
I want to personally thank Kalei for her very meticulous recount of her impressions of the BYU-Hawaii Fireside from last week and for uploading the vids of the entire discussion and Q&A period. I know that Kalei worked into the wee hours of the night on Thursday to not only do this but to gather up all the other information on social media about the Fireside. And after she put her post to bed, and slept a little, she got up the next day for a full day of work, and then returned home and worked on another jam-packed post. Wow!
And through Kalei’s words, and David’s, we understood so much more than we did a mere week ago about David and his plan. From Kalei’s post:
A lot has changed over the years, but all of the important things have remained the same – David is still David, all smiley, rambly and random at times, yet with a new air of maturity and self confidence – he knows who he is, where he’s going and what he wants out of life.
There will always be music, but it will be music on his terms and on his timeline – there’s no rushing the Archuleta this time around – he’s definitely a man with a plan, and all we can do is hang on for the ride of our lives.

See you tomorrow!
