It’s touching that GLORIOUS by David Archuleta has caught the attention of so many all over the world. There are now to-date 357 covers! 🙂
Is it because they are just wanting to win the contest?
Or that they hope their video would be chosen to be included in a David-vid?
Or that they have been missing David’s voice so much that “any song” would suffice to catch their attention? (This was suggested to me a couple of weeks ago and of course my eyes looked up to Glorious heaven and prayed for her safety from hostile Archies! Joke 😉 )
Or that the love for David will always make the Archies stand by him?
Or, simply, David has sung it so Gloriously? 😉
We all know that this song was written and originally sung by the talented Stephanie Mabey. I have listened to her version but my personal feeling is David has breathed a life into it and had sung it the way that beautiful song should have been sung. Anyway, I digress. What I came in to say this morning is, I saw on FOD our Asian participation in making covers of this song. Not only that, the messages posted are drawing tears out of me. We definitely miss him and are reminiscing the glorious concerts he gave in Asia.
Hi! I’m Maegan Fletcher from Kota Kinabalu,Sabah,Malaysia.I’d also like to say how big of a fan I am of David Archuleta! It’s been my life long dream to meet him in person and to get the opportunity to be featured in his video would be such an honor! I know I don’t have the voice of an angel but I just thought I’d give it a go,wish i’d smile a little more though. This song,especially when sung by David,has brightened up my days when i just feel like all’s lost and for that,I’m thankful You’ve been an inspiration to me and to many others since day 1 and we will be forever grateful Take that vocal paralysis, he made it,big time!
I am from Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam but I am currently living in Toronto, Canada.
You never know how much you helped me overcome stress and build in me a great deal of positive energy as well as confidence after I listened (multiple times) to this song you sing! I have been a big fan of you because you inspire not only me but every one in the world by your angelic and interpretative singing voice, along with beautiful songs. I do not expect to win this contest, I only hope that you will watch this cover of mine and read my message to you.
I adore you very much! Proud to be an Archie fan! – Nana Doan
And this Archie fan from Indonesia who is way too shy to show her face. Nice voice though. 🙂
Hi David! I’m Fitri from Malang, Indonesia. Thank you so much for giving us such a great opportunity to raise our voice together singing Glorious. I decided to make this cover (without forgetting the fact that I can’t sing) to show my gratitude, respect and appreciation for all the good deeds you’ve shared to us. I’ve learned so many things from you and I hope you will always keep inspiring people to do good things in life. Pardon me if this cover isn’t that great, but another reason why I made it because I was stoked to join with people from all over the world singing this beautiful song written by Stephanie Mabey. So, for Stephanie Mabey, thank you so much for writing this Glorious song. Looking forward to another great songs of yours. And not forget to mention Meet The Mormons Crews and Casts, Congratulation for the big success of the movie. I haven’t seen it yet and I wish I could watch it someday.
Last but not least, along with its imperfections, I hope this cover can be considered as me “playing a piece”.
