    David’s Forevermore OPM Album is a perfect gift given to all his fans everywhere. A soothing relief while he is gone serving on his Mission. Truly, an excellent performance and tribute to some of the beautiful songs created by Filipino composers and singers…

  5. MCL – I LOVE all the songs on the OPM!!! My absolute favorite at this moment is probably a song called Rainbow. It has a glorious message (just wait for the chorus) and glorious high notes. Check it out!

    You can purchase the CD at http://www.wowhd.ca. The price is reasonable and there’s free shipping.

    You’re a masterclass of your own. You speak from your heart/mind. So eloquently said that every single word pierce my heart and the hearts of million of DA fans around the world. Bravura!! Yes, I reaffirm my belief that, Forevermore, Nandito Ako (if message is understoo) and some others are a gifts from heavens thru David. He is heaven’s sent to caress out troubled heart and souls. He is (as you are maam) awesome person. He is the ultimate singular singular ballader to reckon with. If only the world would see it.

  12. I’ve been on vacation without computer use for a week, so when I returned today I was delighted to have my Forevermore CD in my mailbox and a wonderful video to watch. I always love what you have to say about David. I so respect your opinion. David is such a class act. Whoever had the idea of him doing this album was just brilliant. These songs and David together are magic. I listened to some of the original songs before I heard David’s version, and I have to say that David brings something to the table that makes the songs better for me. Boy, I am going to miss that young man.

  14. Thank you, MCL, for such beautiful words about a beautiful young artist, and his beautiful, heart-felt Forevermore video. I just can’t express in words what my heart feels about the spirit that David brings to each and every song that he ever sings. He just ‘has it’. The entire Forevermore cd is simply amazing. I hope you either own or will own it.
    Thank you for bringing your professional and personal views to the table for all to partake of.

  15. I really appreciate your understanding, MCL, that what motivates David’s beautiful vocals is the person inside. As a father and grandfather, I enjoy David’s music (as well as the way he carries himself) so much in an industry today of rather mediocre music. As a huge fan of singer Andy Williams much of the last 4-5 decades, I have the same sense of enjoyment listening to David and I’ve really enjoyed following his journey the last 4+ years much as I did Mr. Williams the previous 40+ years. Both have shown a sense of stability and character in unstable times. “Forevermore” is such a beautiful song and album, and I find something more to enjoy and discover with each listening.

  16. MCL,

    You must have read my mind when you posted this. I am feeling down and this week’s Idol show was disillusioning. I know what the show is all about, but there are times when I see a truly gifted amazing young talent get savaged by people who are either ignorant, insensitive or both.

    Hearing David sing so gloriously, really lifted my spirits. I have never met him, but somehow feel as though we are musical soul mates. He has meant so much to me and this recording did bring tears to my eyes. I think that I understand what you mean by the melodic line and the ascending scales. His voice was absolutely pitch perfect and beautiful throughout the song.

    This has made my day! 🙂
