Hush Hush Fireside last Sunday

On Sunday, I was privileged enough to attend a fireside held at the Conference Center Theatre. This was a hush, hush concert. (Held for those who were attending a work conference in SLC last week) There were many different musicians there to perform their favorite hymns and church songs. (at this moment I can't find the program, so I will just tell you the names I remember)

There was a girl from Finland (I think) that played the violin. She was amazing! There was a couple that were both opera singers who were dazzling. I really liked the little birdie song they sang. A local youth choir was there. (my brothers were in it. why I was invited) They sang the medley of As Sisters In Zion and Army of Helaman. I know that song is ridiculously over sung especially in this area; however, this was the best performance of it I have heard in a LONG time.

Also there was Sam Cardon who accompanied a young couple. Kalai was there. He sang Be Still My Soul, Kalai style. Interesting version. I liked it. He sang a couple of other songs, but I don't remember at the moment. There was a 12 year old girl there who rocked the house. She was great. She flew out from New Jersey to participate.

And, of course, the reason for the hush, hush. . . . . .

David Archuleta was there to finish off the night. Now, I'm not really an American Idol fan, but he really is good. Really shy, but boy does he have a set of pipes on his body. It was beautiful.

The night was wonderful. I got to listen to some amazing people sing/play some amazing songs. It was a good night.

The way some people say David Archuleta, with tones of awe and lust (not you, I'm saying, but other people, women who are older than me ...) makes me giggle. Poor talented boy - wish him a great life.

He is talented. I just had no idea how shy he was. We couldn't get over how poorly he spoke in front of people. He just needs to stick to singing.
