    A thousand thank yous David! Every snippet sounds fantastic and to hear you sing Angel, well..it’s a wish come true. Be Still My Soul is so beautifully sung by you, can’t imagine listening to the whole album, it will be a little piece of heaven.

  39. Kristin /

    One of the few artists that has EVER left me speechless with a song has done it again. I played Angel and BSMS TWICE and the second time just left me speechless and wanting to cry. His rendition of Angel is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard in my entire life. BSMS will definitely be added to my collection of music for God :) I honestly can’t find the feelings I feel at this moment…but David you’ve done it again and just showed further proof of why I never stopped loving you :) God bless both you and Kari and thank you so much. Can’t wait to BEGIN. in August!

  40. free4all /

    Absolutely perfect! I knew the music you left for you fans would be amazing but this is beyond anything I had hoped for. You have given your fans such a wonderful gift with this new CD. Thank you David. #DA2014

  41. Linda Marty /

    Thank you David and Kari for the teasers. I am so ready to have some new music from my favorite artist. I still enjoy Forevermore at least once a week and getting ready to go back to TOSOD for it has been awhile since I listened to that one. But the new songs you shared today are two of my favorites. Thank You and much love your way.
