"David is a premier singer-songwriter, wordsmith, poet and, to many, a "Troubadour of Hope." His faith and message remain.
A song for you my friend ... hope you like it.

And he said, "Life is short, but dreams are foreverAnd love never leaves."He's our Troubadour of HopeHe's our Troubadour of Hope
An author of courage, traveler of timeA sculpture of thought, with dreams of the divineA poet of faith, a harbor of soulA giver of gifts who lives forever -- this I know ... this I know
