Need a cookie before bedtime? How about David Cook singing an amazing version of the American National Anthem? I guarantee that this Cookie performance will bring a bigger smile to your face and fewer calories than a real cookie.
David sang the national anthem at the home opener at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, CA on April 6th, 2012.
Did I say sing? He hit a home run before the game began – a vocal home run that only he could envision.
How beautiful is this young man’s voice? It really is such a treat to watch him sell his vocal wares with such finesse and poise.
He does everything right. He treats the vowels in all his words with respect, gluing his seamless vocal sound to them while projecting his voice forward. His phrasing is impeccable – reinforced by his strong breathing skills.
He also added a breathtaking twist to the melodic line when he sang the words “flag was still there”. His voice moved on up through the diatonic scale, highlighting the breadth of his vocal range.
This was such an impressive performance and delivered with such professionalism and ingenuity.
Kudos David. We love you here in the MCL Community and will always support you. Bravo!
