MAKING THIS ALBUM IS NOT JUST ABOUT MY RETURN TO SINGING, BUT IS MOTIVATED BY A MUCH DEEPER PURPOSE.
“The Great American Songbook is ‘America’s Shakespeare,’ the golden age of American music. This collection of unforgettable masterpieces helped the world fall in love with our country. During my parents’ time while our country faced many difficulties this music helped it glow with promise and optimism. It reminded them that our country was a place where dreams came true, and inspired people from all over the world to find for themselves the magic that was America. And Frank Sinatra’s Voice was the soundtrack for their lives.
Today we find our country and the world in extremely difficult circumstances. We are seeing erosion in culture and music. This music is as relevant today as it was when it was created. It was Romantic without being crude; the songs were poetic and if there was heartbreak it was sung with a delicate tenderness, not a resentful anger toward women. Take a song that I sing on the album ‘All The Way’ which won the Oscar in 1958 and juxtapose it with a song that won the Oscar just a few years ago ‘It’s hard out there for a pimp,’ and you can see why we have an erosion of values.
My CD, ‘Davi Sings Sinatra: On The Road To Romance,’ is a journey through different aspects of love—from the seduction and elation of falling in love to the loss and heartbreak of it and then back to its rediscovery. It is a metaphor for this great country of ours, that no matter how hard times are the ‘Best is Yet to Come.’ My humble mission as a singer and interpreter of this Songbook is to help reinvigorate the spirit of America, the spirit that makes it the greatest country in the world.”
