He is a master craftsman with music.
My neighbors must wonder why they hear Christmas music coming from my condo in early Sept., but they better get used to it...as with David's "Christmas From The Heart" cd, this performance dvd will be enjoyed in my home all year, when the spirit moves...it is, after all, simply beautiful music! This dvd is one for anyone's Christmas collection. Well Done & Thank You.
What a refreshing talent David Archuleta is in this modern dysfunctional world of greed and unhappiness. Not only does he sing with a glorious pitch-perfect tone, but his eyes simply glow with the joy of singing with such a marvelous choir and orchestra in front of an audience of some 21,000 appreciative concert-goers in one of the world's largest concert halls. He is certainly a top role-model for today's youth.
The other prominent guest artist is the fine British actor of stage, screen and television, Michael York [ Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet (68); Cabaret (72) and as John the Baptist in Zeffirelli's Jesus of Nazareth (77) ] who beautifully narrates the story of the Tabernacle Choir's humble beginnings in Wales to their formation as a choir in a pioneering Salt Lake City. This disc also contains Backstage interviews with David Archuleta and Michael York. Well worth the viewing.
Having said all of that I can heartily recommend 'Glad Christmas Tidings' as an uplifting and beautiful escape from the troubled world we live in today. I might also recommend re-visiting some of the past Tabernacle Choir's Christmas programs of the 21st century that are still available to buy on DVD.Read more ›
Watching the MOTAB Christmas specials every year was already a family tradition for ages, but having The Official Cutest Human Being Ever Born (well, at least since Jesus himself) as this year's guest just makes it that much more special.
No, my impulse to take Archuleta home, give him a room, a basket of kittens and cupcakes, and pay for his college will likely never come to pass. But events like this, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert, is the next best thing to having him in your living room, giggling, gasping and warbling angelically.
Why the American music industry ignores (and, in fact, actively squelches) talented, money-making and popularity-poll winning people like Archuleta while giving all their support and promotion to magazine cover-ready kids who can't sing and need Autotune 24/7 is a mystery --- except that the latter are easier to "control" (i.e., yank the Autotune chord, and their careers are over). Meanwhile, David's a significant star overseas.
We need more David Archuletas. Not fewer.
