Celebration of Christ


On November 28 & 29, 2014 David Archuleta headlined the “Celebration of Christ” an Interfaith Concert at the Capitol Theater in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Producer/Director Vic Deauvono and presented by Foundation 4Life.  Their theme this year was “Believe” to celebrate this Christmas season with respect and honor to all faiths and people. 

It was outstanding, one of the most inspirational joyful, lively, spirited holiday season musical events I’ve attended in years.  A great mix of songs with the incredible David Archuleta who makes you really feels the songs he sings.  It was a very sophisticated and inspired concert, a true testament to the faith and love each performer has for their beliefs. I truly feel blessed to have attended.

What a beautiful way to spend an evening.  This was a performance that glowed from within.  We’ve come to expect great music from David Archuleta and he did not disappoint especially with his first number The First Noel.

David Archuleta’s Glorious with One Voice Children’s Choir, Masa Fukuda director was beautifully sung with passion and Do You Hear What I Hear Rainstorm with Kevin Olusola on Cello was magnificent with David’s vocals and Taryn Elkins on piano, it was a haunting piece of musical art.

David saved his finest vocal on “Silent Night” which was vocal perfection, controlled, powerful and stunning.  He was able to silence the entire venue through the song and it garnered yet another standing ovation.

A favorite moment was “Believe” featuring David Archuleta with David Glen Hutch, Kevin Olusola, One Voice Children’s Choir, Masa Fukuda, director. Also performing was the Calvary Baptist Choir, Pastor France A. David, Salt Lake City Mass Choir, Timothy Drisdom, director.

David ended with “Believe” which showcased his trademark range and vocal prowess.  He gave me goose bumps listening to his version of this beautiful song. He has a voice of an angel.

The night was a sparkling collection of gems…..Choirs, Dancers, Musicians, Vocal soloists, Aerial Artists and diligent dedicated music directors, arrangers and choreographers.

Each song and performance reminded the audience of the true meaning of Christmas and causes you to experience the warm feeling associated with the holidays the birth and life of our Savior Jesus Christ.

It was a Glorious evening!
