David Archuleta – A Merry Christmas To Me – Ann Arbor

11 January 2010




My head must have been buried into so many of David Archuleta’s concerts I fully missed out on a delightful song I have never heard before. This was the first time David had ever sung this song live and I fell in love with it immediately. Of course, David singing the song was pretty much the reason I love it, but the lyrics are beautiful.

I know it’s late to the party but I thought everyone should have the opportunity to hear this song. There was no video because they were not allowed in Ann Arbor with the full orchestra, but close your eyes and listen to David sing this song and it will bring back all the lovely memories of his Christmas Tour with the added treat of this lovely song only David Archuleta could make memorable.

We have two audio versions, so please take a moment and listen to both.

A Merry Christmas to Me
by Dan Rodowicz and Phillip Keveren

Rooftops laced with white,
A starlit night,
Inside by the fire we’re warming:
This would surely be
A Merry Christmas to me.

Scenes of candy canes
And shiny trains,
The echo of children laughing:
This would surely be
A Merry Christmas to me.

For hardened hearts can love again,
And smiles that have faded shine bright;
Even earthbound dreams can fly again
On a magic Christmas night.

Ribbons tied with love,
A star above,
The twinkle of lights enchanting:
This would surely be
A Merry Christmas to me.

But what I long to see won’t be under my tree,
Though my wish is most sincere:
If the spirit of Christmas could fill every one of us
And light each day of the year,
This would surely be the most Merry Christmas to me.
This would surely be the most Merry Christmas to me.

    Thank you, David, for this Spiritual Journey you have given us ♥
    Thanks for the memories, I was in the front row, jaw dropped in amazement! He is a class act all the way, I was so gobsmacked by his talent! One of the best days of my life 😀

    Wow! What an awesome performance. It’s got a great jazzy, Broadway melody. Very expansive musicality. I can imagine David singing it atop the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, like Julie Andrews singing in the Alps in The Sound of Music.

    Thanks, Pam!
