Surprise! Since there’s only one week left until my new Christmas album is here, I thought I’d share a behind-the-scenes look at how my music video for #ChristmasEveryDay came together. We had a blast filming it!
I feel this vid is unique 😀
Christmas songs are David’s forte. And this vid will turn out to be one of David’s bestest vids!
Really looking forward to it soon!
David sent a series of tweets to share and reveal his thoughts on TOSOD and WHO I AM.
I wrote “Who I Am” for my 2nd album “The Other Side of Down” with Mike Krompass and Shelly Peiken. It was the first hint I gave to my fans that I was planning to go on my 2-year mission. I told a few people including the people I worked with and I tried going before I made this 2nd album, but had a contract to still do another album with my record label. I talked to @shellypeiken about it and she said “I think you should do it.” We continued to write “Who I Am” about disconnecting from the craziness of keeping up with the public image as an art I was and my purpose didn’t come just from becoming famous. I needed to take time to find who I really was. The album this song is from means a lot to me because it was a challenging time of life for me. There were a lot of battles I had to fight as an 18-20 year-old. How I found my way through them is on this album like little post-it notes that reminded me to keep perspective and look ahead. #DavidArchieMusicFactsist, and connecting with God and with myself.
Hmm .. interesting. So he had planned to go on his mission long before we even heard about it during his announcement??
I remember our Sheba was attending that concert in SLC. With trembling fingers, she immediately texted us to inform us the dreadful news. We were open-mouthed with shell-shock – thunderstruck .. horrified. NOOOO ……….!!! WHY, DAVID, WHY???!!!
We were under the impression that David was reasonably happy – that he was already having a singing career and had a pretty large following. Little were we aware that the young man with the cute face and the awesome voice was harbouring but repressing much deeper thoughts. And ambitious for a bolder higher life.
I thought then that WHO I AM had sort of just .. trendy .. lyrics. Little had I realised our little guy meant business. Serious business. That he earnestly wanted to keep perspective of disconnecting with the craziness of show-business image .. go on a Mission .. support his Faith .. and Discover his True Self.
I’m gonna take this moment that I’m in right now
Stop the craziness somehow
Leave it all behind me
I know it’s gonna find me
I’ve got nothing to win, and I got nothing to lose
Just trying to walk in my own two shoes
Gotta take the time now
It’s time for me to find out who I am
Oh oh oh, Oh oh oh, Oh oh oh
Who I am
“I realized that who I was and my purpose didn’t come just from becoming famous.
I needed to take time to find who I really was.
