It all began here, at the American Idol Finale, when David sang Apologize with One Republic. David’s smooth whiskey voice against the crystal falsetto of Ryan Tedder was the first time we really got to hear David sing with someone outside of the AI contestants. Right from the beginning we see that David knows how to be a singing partner, modulating his voice to fit in with that of the other person, never trying to “take over the stage.”
Over the course of the next four years, David sang duets with the ease at which he sang solo. Always blending his voice with that of his singing partner, he makes the perfect compliment to both male and female voices. Below is a little walk through David’s duet history.
