From a blog by Rachel Ho

Quote :
Then came the finale, which was the act everyone was waiting for - it was time for David Cook to take the stage. It was his first public show in Singapore (though he played a private show the night before at a corporate party), and fans have been waiting many years for this moment. I had the opportunity to interview the 29 year old singer 2 days before the show, and I can tell that he is a very down-to-earth man who genuinely loves making music. Unlike a blonde female British singer whose gig I have recently been to (not naming any names here), he was sincere in his performance and even took the time to interact with his fans. He performed hits such as "Paper Heart", "Come Back To Me", "This Last Song I'll Write For You", "From Here To Zero", "Always Be My Baby" and "Light Up" during his hour-long set. I can see why he won American Idol - his charming personality, great musicianship and a unique voice enchanted me and it was one of the best concerts I have ever attended. One major boo-boo for me was that we were very far from the stage. I was 4 rows away from the barricade, and the barricade was at least a couple of meters away from the end of the stage. Being the short kid that I am, I couldn't see much of David and had to resort to watching the entire gig on the screens set up beside the stage.

David brought along one of his best friends, Andy Skib, to the show to play as his guitarist and to sing backup & to harmonise with him when needed. During my 12-minute group interview with him, he said that he and Andy were like "brothers", and while they had their fights every now and then, they remained best friends and he felt that it was a privilege for him to bring his best friend along with him to experience all the amazing things he had the chance to experience after winning Idol. Andy has an amazing voice, his voice reminds me of Morgan Dorr from Boys Like Girls. Both of them have incredible voices and beautiful falsettos, but they're both singing backup. I heard from an extremely reliable source (okay fine, it's Wikipedia) that Andy is the lead singer of a rock band called Midwest Kings. I'll definitely have a listen to MWK when I have the time to!

After the show, the Australian host with the extremely adorable accent called David back onto the stage to ask him to try a durian pancake that a fan had bought for him. He crinkled his nose after taking a whiff of it. Oh come on David, it smells heavenly! After much encouragement from the host and the audience, he finally mustered the courage to put the pancake into his mouth - an action that he definitely regretted, judging from the look of his face when he tasted the durian pancake. He spit the pancake out and threw it away. Aww David, it doesn't taste that bad... I happen to love durian. A lot. I guess it's an acquired taste. Not many non-Asians like durian, so I understand.

Aww Thanks Dinna!!!

The Seacrest imitation and catwalk strut were great!

I love Purple Rain acoustic, but would really like to hear them do it full band some day.

OK. The article above was great. But.... Light Up? That gave me a chuckle. Ok, David. I believe I will Light Up. lmao.

It appears his charm isn't waning one little bit. He sure charmed the author of that article. Very Happy I just love when he does that. It's just so natural for him. All he has to do is show up, be himself, and BOOM! He has you in the palm of his hands.

I think full band "Purple Rain" would have definitely sounded more exciting (the acoustic version sounds just a bit dragging to me.)

With no full band, perhaps an acoustic "Rolling in the Deep" cover might have sounded more appealing. JMO.

Oh, I thought his Purple Rain was stunning! I really appreciate the nuances in his voice, and feel that this performance played perfectly to that.

Dinna, so happy that you have had much to enjoy!

He sounds absolutely fantastic. Every time there's a "drought" in Dave appearances, and then he plays a beautiful acoustic set like this....I fall in love with that voice all over again.

I agree Jamie. The voice just....chills.

Ana, I'm with you on Purple Rain. I didn't really care for it. Yea, I know. I'll take the thrown tomatoes. But I'm not a lover of Prince's music for the most part. I'm an odd ball. He sang it well though. Very soulful. It was fun seening him experience that performance. A lot of people loved it. So I know this isn't what everyone else feels. Nice to know I wasn't alone though.

The catwalk was adorable. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him strut and turn. Oh, the turn. lol. He's such a goof. Love when he gets all playful.

I think the Purple Rain cover was really good. And I love that he did something new for the Singapore fans. Smile

Did you watch the catwalk video posted above, Ana? Someone already put his walk to that song. LOL Face You knew it wouldn't take long. Wink

I think Purple Rain sounded just lovely acoustic, though I wouldn't mind hearing a full band version sometime. But it fit did fit well with the acoustic show, he sounded great, and Ion Mall's "official" color is purple from what I read so it fit that way as well.

I ROFLOL at David imitating Seacrest introducing him for ABMB, and I like Andy's harmonies at the end better than I did the two girls who sang it with him in Indonesia and the Philippines. I still have to watch all the vids - have only watched 4 or 5 songs so far - but I did download dinna's mp3 of the whole show - thank you again, dinna! - and plan to listen at work today. Smile

David and Andy sound so gorgeous together. Those harmonies! Wow Awww Love Makes me think of what those acoustic gigs they did in Tulsa so many moons ago would have sounded like. Smile

We've been given some very sweet treats with these acoustic gigs but ya know what? The next gig needs to be full band. I miss those guys! Very Sad

I'm thinking that durian fruit is on the list with mustard for Dave, judging by his reaction.

SUCH a funny guy, huh? I love him so much, for reasons that you all know by heart. His warm personality just lights up the room, and it's already bright that day on top of the Ion building.

He tackles all the serious and funny questions with the same amount of wit and wisdom Smile

Dinna, It was great to meet you!! My twitter handle is quicksandyrs. I had great time hanging out with you guys.. And...I got a hug and a handshake from David haha. He made a deal with me that I would have buy him a burmese harp if he comes to Burma. This is my first time meeting David and all the fans. I hope I can see him again soon.

Ha-Ha-- Singapore was smart. They got David to try a delicacy by actually having the food and offering it to him to taste in front of TV cameras! That way not only did fans have first hand view of what David thinks of the food but they got to record his reaction for posterity.

I take it no one pulled the same gimmick over in Manila on having David actually taste balut! Over there they just kept asking him if he had tried balut but never physically offered it to him. As a result, we don't have a record of David "filing" balut in the mustard category as well. LOL flag

I had Purple Rain stuck in my head. He just did something with his voice in that song I've never heard before. And I LOVE IT! Very soulful.

I've been wondering if this is the "new textures" he's been talking about? I don't mind at all, obviously Wink

I know what you mean, Dinna. He did something totally different with his voice. Purple Rain is just sort of "meh" for me, but his vocal was stunning. I feel like he's played another one of those cards he was talking about after Idol.
