    Howdy David, been meaning to come here and tonight seems to be a better time to let you know it’s truly nice to hear and watch your vlog regardless of when it was made. really appreciate you taking the time to explain the reason behind the meaning to the title BEGIN. in your words,of course:)..
    not to worry, I am sure everyone totally understand where you are coming from David. I know that wordplay is not an easy thing to do to get your point across at times but you did it quite amazingly on this album. moved my heart and soul to brink of tears each time I listen to your cover version of the album. I would like to think your awesome fans felt same way too.

    May I say BROKEN is such a powerful song with beautiful melody and strong message that I thought needs to be heard in all corners of the world. I also loove everything about SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW and DON’T GIVE UP, needless to say, the rest of your cover songs are equally moving and inspiring. Sometimes words are not enough to describe how a certain songs can make you feel. This album is one of them David. the one I have been waiting for. so grateful for that:)

    Well, this is long now, Thanks again for the vlog. looking forward to be a part of the new chapter of your life. a new beginning of a new journey,that is. In the meantime, be safe and have wonderful time on your mission. Take care always David:):):)>

    Dear David ~so sorry for delay in commenting on your latest vlog which, of course, means the world to your devoted fans. Just back from vacation & playing catch-up now ~pretty sure I commented at YT just before leaving on my trip. You are a sweetheart for caring so much by sharing your explanation of the meaning of BEGIN. I honestly can say I feel your heart in each of these songs & now have a better understanding of what motivated you to select/record them. We ARE right there with you David, every step of the way & we’ll be here waiting for your return to music & hearing that incomparable VOICE of yours once again. God Bless & Keep you safe ~you are missed & loved more than you can know.

I hope you know that we are right there with you in your heart and you remain in ours – I hope you’re used to that by now!

    David, do you have any idea how much we love hearing “Hey guys, it’s David here”? We CONNECT with that. We LOVE it and it feels like you’re talking directly to each one of us. Thank you for that.
    I think I knew what you were trying to say with BEGIN. the first time I heard the songs and the lyrics to each of them. It’s so wonderful to hear you verbally explain them though. I feel your heart which is what you wanted. I hope you feel mine and all of your fans as well. We love you, David. We are here for you. You are IN our hearts and you’re not getting out…even with the time and distance. God put you there for a reason and who are any one of us to go against God?
    When you said you were bringing everyone with you, I feel the same way in a way and I hope you know how much that touched me. You have done so much already in the first few months for us and I hope you know how very much it’s appreciated. I along with everyone else wish we could personally tell you that. Hopefully you are getting that message.
    I’m praying for you, David and I look forward to when you return and BEGIN. the next phase of your life after this one. I’ll be here when that happens.

  11. Omg David you’re as adorable as ever! Thank you for taking us on your wonderful journey and I totally understand what you’re saying, will be with you every step of the way thru ups & downs! I know you’re having an amazing time right now, can’t wait for you to share your incredible experiences upon your return!

    Love your short hair btw, best style ever! :)
