His Technicolor Dream Voice

He replaced Donny Osmond in Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat Tour, played Fabrizio in Light of the Piazza Tour and Fiyero in Wicked on Broadway. Yes, I've heard good things about David Burnham but it's only recently that I've had the pleasure of seeing him perform live. It was at The Best Is Yet To Come: Music of Cy Coleman (see review here) in Ventura CA. Great stage presence paired with a beautiful soaring voice, I had to get his cd.

His self titled album include songs from the shows he's been in but he mainly shines in ballads such as Someone To Fall Back On (which I believe is a Jason Robert Brown song), The Prayer and Flight.......particularly in those beautifully sustained notes! A versatile singer, he displays this ability when he becomes a crooner (watch out Michael Buble!) in more jazzy songs such as Gypsy In My Soul and I Wish I Were In Love Again. So smooth like honey, these were my favorite tracks in the album. Well, those and the gospel tinged harmonies in Muddy Water. Great vocals with hopeful and romantic hues in his music.....and if you're into that, then this should be in your collection.
