He has shared the stage with Holly Stell, Jacob Snyder, LaShun Pace, Avalon, Anthony Evans, Crystal Lewis, Arcade Fire, Ms. Kathleen Battle and, most recently, Cece Winans at The Walt Disney Concert Hall.
David now presides as the Artistic Director of the flourishing Selah Gospel Choir of Pasadena, CA.
