You know a singer is doing something right when he can melt away all the stress and fatigue of the day, transporting you to another world of absolute bliss and harmony.
And no one does this better than David Archuleta. He has such a gift – a beautiful charismatic voice and presence that draws you in to every word he is singing.
In this music video, featured above, David performs a song titled “You Are My Song” from his OPM album, “Forevermore”.
It is an absolutely exquisite vocal performance, highlighting the dimension and scope of David’s range. His vocals are pure and translucent, emanating straight from his heart to yours.
His ability to craft and stretch his phrases is testament to his enormous skill set as a vocalist. Listen to the manner in which he holds the note on the word “song” at the 1:35 mark – centering the head voice and then gently increasing the diaphragmatic momentum to crescendo on the note, followed by a decrescendo.
This is called messa di voce and very difficult for singers to master. Yet, he makes it sound so easy.
Thank you to Janey for sending this song my way.
