A PRAYER FOR DAVID


John Lennon died 1980 and this is what he said, "We're all Christ and we're all Hitler. We are trying to make Christ's message contemporary. We want Christ to win. What would he have done if he had advertisements, T.V., records, films and newspapers? The miracle today is communication. So let's use it." David has been diligently doing just that, but hardly anyone listen and understand. It's just got me thinking, what happens if David is no longer with us? What then? It's just too depressing. Let's all pray for David.

0 Lord, save thy servant;
Which putteth his trust in thee.
Send him help from thy holy place;
And evermore mightily defend him.
Let the enemy have no advantage of him;
Nor the wicked approach to hurt him.
Be unto him, 0 Lord, a strong tower.
From the face of his enemy.
0 Lord, hear our prayers.
And let our cry come unto thee.

Extract from The Book of Common Prayer, Administration of the Sacraments and other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church according to the use of the Church of England

Whoa, zhao di...I sense some negative energy around here...hehe, cool down...I'm sure his album will be out...if it's not this year, it'll be next year...After all, he said it himself that the album is beginning to see the light...well, as for the promo thingy, I'm rather ashamed to say that i don't really think much of what the newspaper articles say...seriously...if david is sick, then let us pray he'll be better soon, if it's some rumours, then let it be...showbiz is never that simple or easy, it's always so 'complicating'...keke, i hope i don't blab too much...juz wanna let u know, that we all care for DT, well, at least I care...=p (And pls, don't give up on this blog...it's a great job you're doing...hehe)

please try not to worry too much zhaodi - although David is very human, he is very strong. Even if he is sick with just a common cold, it would be enough to put anyone off travelling halfway across the globe in a crowded plane, and rest will be the best remedy. Not knowing how to read Chinese has some advantages - I don't see any of the rumours or rubbish written about David - but I think he is able to rise above them, and take no notice and take comfort in the fact that people who care about him take no notice.

Don't worry about David not sticking to schedule - the best musicians are never able to - David has made comments to the effect that inspiration and creativity cannot be forced.

regards, ukfan/Mark

don't worry, zhaodi. I care about david everyday and every minute. david will be just fine. don't be too negative. if he is sick, we'll pray he'll get well soon. all rumors you've heard, trust me, is not worth paying attention to. david will appear as scheduled and we will hear his new album. we as fans should always give him continuous support and be right, at his back. we all love and care 'bout david, i love and care 'bout david, don't you?

let's just pray to God that everything will be fine. don't worry too much, zhaodi. i'm worried too, if you're worried. or i'll cry if you do. let's have faith in God that David will be OK.

From the NO. 1 David Tao Fan,

Zhaodi, don't give up and feel frustrated just yet. Something big's gonna happen soon. David will keep to his schedule and meet us as soon as possible. That's the time when all his fans will gather all their energy to support him. At that time, the Chinese music industry will be a blast because of David's new album. Have faith in him... Have faith in David Tao, someone who had brought you joy and strength. If you have faith in him, don't think negatively.
The media, the Chinese music industry care for David, we care for him too. I think about him 24/7. Even if he is not around, I imagined his presence. I heard a radio station aired Dear God last Friday and then Angel the next day. Who says they don't care about David. In fact, I think they respect him GREATLY.
Trust da man, DT.
