DAVID ARCHULETA

The Name-Our-Chat-Room Contest

Posted by Angelica on Monday, January 11, 2010

The Voice is very soon to have its own 24/7 video chat room.   It will ultimately be run by the great and powerful, Abrra Kadabrra (aka Master,) the sole possessor of the almighty spam wand.  We are taking suggestions for a name for our new chat room which shall be open to one and all.  Submit them in the comments section on this thread.   Toward the middle of the week, we will put up the best 3 for a vote.

We must have a name before Abrra can begin to work her magic, so the sooner we have it, the sooner the room will be open for business and we can all move in.

So….What do you think the new room should be called?  Inquiring minds want to know.

Do it for 

OK, then do it for a fellow ODD sufferer.  Remember, your quick action during this time of drought may just bring someone back from the {{{LEDGE}}}

    That’s a good one! Welcome to our site!

    I like ‘where did they all park’ but for a chat, I wonder about ‘where they all parked.’ Not that my opinion should count since I’ve never chatted here. (I need to try it out — my online time is just so sporadic. Oh well.)

    Love this site!

    Kathy
    Welcome! Be sure too stop back later this week to vote on the top 3 choices. Thanks for your idea!

    Okay – I am so not good at this type of thing – it took me forever to come up with my screen name:), but here goes – what about “Many FANS – one VOICE”???

  8. Angelica said

    Archiesfan4life#7

    You know, that one actually occured to me too. Thanks for your input!

  9. archiesfan4life said

    Thanks Angelica! BTW – does anyone know the screen name for Trish? I think it might be trish0400, but I am not sure and I need it for a card I am sending her. Thanks!

    “Kokaubeam” It signifies stars, or all the great lights which were in the firmament of heaven (Reference Book of Abraham, Chap. 3). David would be familiar with this passage of scripture. As well as its meaning, I think the word itself is quirky and fun and you could design your website with lots of rays of light. David is a “star” not just in a celebrity sense but in the giving out of much light sense and so those who come in to use your chat room would always be reminded to keep their chat “light and bright and positive”. This is just a random idea anyhow … :O)

    Moving this over from the last thread.

    Hi All! Happy New Year! Didn’t know if this has already been posted or not. Maybe the FBI is not up yet?

    David to Appear at Fireside in Guatemala Tomorrow
    According to enishi39 on Twitter, David will be heading to Guatemala on January 12th (tomorrow).

  12. munkmusic said

    Hi! Gotta idea! How about “The ODD Stop”………I know it’s kinda corny. But we all have ODD pretty bad and it is a place to stop and share, right?

  13. Abrra said

    Wow I love all the new faces, welcome to you all.
    munkmusic. Your idea is very close to one we had tossed around.
    Abrra

  14. djafan said

    Good Morning all!

    Glad to see some great ideas….keep them coming!

    Thought I’d bring this over from the previous thread since we are missing David for inspiration….

    Photobucket

  15. bebereader said

    Checking in to see what’s new and….gulp!
    Lots of cool suggestions for the new chat-room! I’m flooooored!

  16. Angelica said

    http://mystrymusician.blogspot.com/2010/01/what-is-natural-talent-listen-to-david.html

    This is a cool write-up about David’s talent and there is a video? I can’t see it at work. I see in the comments it is Imagine.

  17. djafan said

    Angelica…here it is… Imagine

  18. bebereader said

    Off topic but I never saw David’s cool introduction to “Pat-A-Pan”, where he talks to the orchestra members from the Boston show.

  19. SandyBeaches said

    Just a few suggestions…

    “The Voice Unplugged”..meaning to me chatting about David without frills in a relaxed mode, being ourselves, a bit wide open conversation living in the minute…

    Or, simply “Becoming Unplugged”…we know how to do that!

    SB

    Photobucket

  21. djafan said

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    His eyes have it…

  22. SandyBeaches said

    What a tease…a torment…what beautiful and soulful eyes…and that is how he looks out when he sings. I have to keep scrolling back up to..the Eyes of David…

    If I have just one entry then I will go with…

    “A Cappella Chat” ….feeling free to talk about anything and everything on chat…

    Now to scroll back up…

    SB

  23. pabuckie said

    How about “The one and only DA Chat”

    or “David Only Chat”

  24. munkmusic said

    Oh my Gosh! Those eyes! That’s all!…….don’t have any other words!

  25. Rebeccafod said

    OH MY GOSH ANGELICA! Those eyes!!!! WOW & WHOA! Can’t come up with anything else to say about ‘em! THAT is what completely renders me speechless when I see him at VIP! haha Oh and SB, love the name you came up with – A Cappella Chat. Very cute. I like them all, but that one caught my attention. I don’t know if I am as clever as you all, but I will be thinking about it. BTW, this is gonna be a long week, well really, a long winter. Ahhhh!

  26. TOfan said

    Why not give Abrra the credit she so well deserves?:

    Abrra’s ArchuChat Room

    Wooooot!

  27. CindyW. said

    I Love this fan site! Thanks so much for the great articles!

    How about TON OF VOICE. Ya know… like Tone of Voice, but there’s lots and lots of us so, Ton of Voice.
    :)

  28. SandyBeaches said

    Rebecca #25…or “A Cappella Chat” could be “Chat A Cappella”…same meaning though…feeling free to talk about anything and everything on chat…well, David related of course…then remembering that it could be…”David Chat A Cappella”.

    I’m done!

    SB

  29. Emi said

    Those eyes. I don’t think we can write another word about David that would tell us more than those eyes. Thanks for that picture.. It is now my screen saver!

    As far as my two cents on the name:

    Whaterever ya name the new chat room, you need to be mindful of the initials it will become because that is how we refer to them anyways. So mabe a terrific three or four letter word. THIGHS.. oh no, not quite what I meant. NBT.. Next Best Thing oh I am not very good at this… DavidSpaceArchuleta… I’m likeing that one.. then there is no initial issue.. oh there are others I like better. Parking Space for DJA .. I like the “ODD Stop” and “Where did they all park” or “Where they all Parked” the best so far…

  30. Emi said

    Hush cats chat

  31. dakgal said

    My entry:

    The Voice and I. No reason just popped into my head.

    Angelica #20- There should have been a warning before that
    picture.

    I was totally not expecting that–bout fell out of my chair!

  32. djafan said

    He keeps looking at me….

  33. silverfox said

    This is GRRRRREATTTT!! All these ideas for The Voice chat room are awesome!

    So I’m reading all the comments & cool names, then THOSE EYES appeared and I was paralyzed..literally! Good Lord, Angelica! Have you no mercy??????

  34. Joner said

    “Scat-chat”
    i.e. “scat singing is vocal improvisation with random vocables and nonsense syllables or without words at all.”
    :)))

  35. silverfox said

    Joner..you mean like this…

  36. Abrra said

    SF
    Do you know I have that as an MP3 on my Ipod? ;) Irresistible!

    Abrra

  37. bebereader said

    I don’t think any picture of David’s eyes can top that one up there in post #20. Who has eyes like those?? Nobody! I had such a strong reaction when I saw that pic and I’m still picking myself up off the floor! The color is beautiful but I think it’s the expression in his eyes that is doing a number on me. I can’t stop looking at them. Angelica is a bad bad girl. LOL

  38. rose said

    how about the name “Forever More”24/7

  39. djafan said

    SF…I love David scatting…thank you and thank you Joner!

    Bebe…you said it, it’s like he’s looking passed the camera with that soulful deep look that can pierce through the coldest of hearts into the eyes of whoever is going to be looking at the picture or video…it’s uncanny.

  40. Rebeccafod said

    SB, love Chat A Cappella even better! I also think Hush Cats Chat is cute too, Emi. That was probably my favorite tweet EVER! Silverfox, the Reno MGR is TOO much! Love it! I really can’t stand not knowing what he is up to and how he is doing. I hope he gets connected somehow, someway soon!

  41. fa3ryg1rl said

    Hear the Angel’s Voices

    like the song – but also like hear us chat (arch angel’s)
    get it? lol

    some great suggestions here!

  42. Joner said

    Yes, Silverfox, that’s EXACTLY what I mean!!! As a matter of fact, if “Scat-Chat” wins, I think that video should play every time someone enters the new chat room….jez sayin’…”:)))

  43. Angelica said

    Bebe#37

    Et tu Bebe?
    Oh no chu did-dint go there. Archu callink me bad? Archu-callink-ME-bad? Doju know what I am goink to do? Is OK. I make hair ball just for ju. *couph* haha. Just kiddink!

  44. smanda said

    Wow – How have I missed this place? So many familiar folks here! I will be back soon. I dont care what you name the chat room but it sounds like fun :)

  45. archuletafansgermany said

    Mhmmm…. how about VoiceBox (as in the term for the larynx, haha)

    or

    ArchuCHATa (or ArchuCHATta or ArchuChatter or … lol)

    Mhmmm, or uh, mhmm… *thinking* ChatAway-ay-ay-yayyaaay ? lol IDK haha :)

  46. silverfox said

    How about Call of the Wild……haaaaahahahahahaha! as in…

  47. silverfox said

    SMANDA!!!!!! So happy to see you here! Welcome!!

    How are you? Where have you been? I have missed you!

  48. pabuckie said

    Hey Angelica – those “eyes” are something else! Can’t stop looking at them. haha

    Wanna try one with his gorgeous “lips” next? Then either one could be the cover of the chat room as people enter. LOL

    “Loving Voices of David”.

  49. LuvieD said

    How about “The Recovery Room”…..where fans go to recover from what this young man is doing to us!….lol!

  50. pabuckie said

    How bout just “24/7 ODD”

  51. Angelica said

    Pabuckie#50 Here ya go!

    Photobucket

  52. Angelica said

    LuvieD!!! Recovery Room? How about Intensive Care Unit. ICU I see you. heh.

    Good to see you!

  53. Goodkarmaseeker said

    How about “DA – All day” ?

    By the way I really like this site. It’s got a great feel to it. And Abrra, a chat site is just what we all need to keep us going through the probable lean days without concerts or new songs. Oh I dread thinking of coping in the days and months ahead.

    Also you can call me GKS or karma or seeker or Mom.

  54. djafan said

    I’m loving all the suggestions!

    Welcome to all and make sure to come back!

  55. SandyBeaches said

    Angelica…That is an almost unforgiveable thing to put before us…#53. The picture of the eyes and then the lips, is that artistry or perfection?

    SB

  56. LuvieD said

    #54Angelica….NICU tooo!! (haha at our Nursing jokes) :)

  57. Fanis Archangelicus said

    Abs refused to post my suggestions and is forcing me to post! Here are a few names:

    The Sitting Room (’cause Abs invites people to come sit)
    Abrra’s Parlour or just The Parlour
    The Chatter Box (playing off #47 above)
    Soul Room
    Archangels’ Realm, Realm of Angels or ArchuRealm
    ArchuSphere
    Angel Room
    Choir of Archangels or Archangels’ Chorus
    The Sharing Place

    As you can see, I got carried away. Worse, I will probably lie awake all night with more names running through my head.

    I must tell you all that I love The Voice, home to gifted writers and a place of respect, love and welcoming warmth. Good job!

    There…I’ve done it! I’ve made my first post on The Voice! Ducking out now.

    Fanis Archangelicus aka ODDity

  58. Fanis Archangelicus said

    How do we get our avis on here? Help!

  59. SandyBeaches said

    Instructions please for FA from the instructors of all that is about David!

    Well, the first day without a TWEET!! How are we all doing?? SF must have something for us from her research station!

    SB

  60. Angelica said

    Fanis Archangelicus

    Welcome to the Voice and you did GOOD! So many great suggestions! Thank you so much for the kind words too. To get an avi go here:

    http://en.gravatar.com/

    Sign up for an account and it will then prompt you to browse your computer for pics. Click on a few and see how you like them. They will need to be cropped and gravatar will prompt you to do that too. Once you select one you like, it will take a little while for it to show up. You may want to clear your cache and reboot after. Good luck!

    LuvieD#58

    NICU??? Neonatal ICU? He ain’t THAT young. You so crazy!

    Yu know I luv u.

  61. silverfox said

    Be careful what you ask Angelica for…cause she will deliver! See #53 :lol:

    No word yet from David. :( But obviously he has arrived safe & sound. :)

    Today has been a fun day at The Voice. Thanks to all who have responded with awesome names for the new video stream & chat room opening soon here at The Voice by our very own talented, tireless, generous, and sweet Abrra. :D

    Good night all! And for David, our inspiration…

    Dear lord,

    Please take care of David.
    Watch over him, protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.
    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    CLOAK DAVID IN YOUR PROTECTIVE ARMS AS HE JOURNEYS TO FAR AWAY PLACES DOING GOOD AND CHARITABLE WORKS.
    Keep David and his voice healthy & strong as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen

    David, have a good & restful night’s sleep with sweet & happy dreams. Thank you for all you do and for who you are. HAVE A SAFE & ENJOYABLE TIME IN CENTRAL AMERICA. Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always! TAKE CARE!

  63. pabuckie said

    Angelica – Wow! haha
    THANKS!
    I was just about ready to go to bed and I said let me check The Voice one more time. GLAD I DID!! Beautiful..simply beautiful.

  64. djafan said

    thank you sf…much needed today…the fanbase is truly missing David

  65. Carly said

    Hi,I see some great suggestions. I’m suggesting Random Rambling like David random singing.

  66. bebereader said

    Welcome to all new posters!
    This post feels like one big party! It’s so nice to see all the new faces and some not so new, but all are welcome to join in the fun.

    Angelica#53 (lips) You didn’t!!! Now we have David’s eyes and lips. How about his nose for djafan and FG.

    Angelica#45 regarding hairballs….I don’t think you should go there. As you know i have two cats and I’ve had my fill of hairballs for the day. LOL

    #59 {{{ODDity}}} You made it! So good to see you! Welcome! Thank you for the kind things you had to say about me. Hope you feel hugged too! Looking forward to seeing more of you, here and in the new chatroom.

    Still can’t get over those eyes.

    Wishing for a tweet! Just one tweet!

  67. smanda said

    Hey Silverfox! Thanks for the warm welcome :)

  68. Angelica said

    To djafan and FunnyGirl. With love.

  69. refnaf said

    Wow , lots of creative names here…. you guys are amazing, whatever you call it> count me in!!!

  70. djafan said

    OH ANGELICA YOU DID….LOL

    THAT NOSE IS PERFECT FOR THAT GORGEOUS FACE…A MASTERPIECE!

    This is going to be one fun poll…thank you all for the kind words regarding The Voice. I hope you all feel like you could kick off your shoes, grab a cup of something, and take a comfy seat here and join us in celebrating all things David.

  71. pabuckie said

    I had a pic I wanted to paste — from my pictures — how do you do that?

  72. Angelica said

    Pabuckie,

    Upload to photobucket. Copy and paste the html code here.

  73. Abrra said

    #71
    Pabuckie

    This is from an email from Angelica that I saved regarding posting a picture in comments.

    ..upload the pic to photobucket. Then copy and paste the html code in the comment section. If you have trouble finding it, just click on “more” at the top of the links tab. It will take you to a page where you can click on “post to website” at the top. Then just copy and paste that link into the comments. That is the html code.

    Good luck. I have not had time to try it yet. I am looking forward to seeing your picture :)

    Abrra

  74. Fanis Archangelicus said

    Thank you for the welcome! And thank you Angelica for instructions on how to get my avatar here. I will work on that in the next couple of days.

    {{{{HUGS}}}} all around.

  75. silverfox said

    OK, now THIS is not what I wanted to read while David is in that area and was not sure I should post it. Then I’m thinking, let’s see the humor in it..

    THE EARTH MOVED IN CENTRAL AMERICA WHEN DAVID ARRIVED! :D

    “Moderate quake jolts Honduras-Guatemala border”

    http://hablaguate.com/moderate-quake-jolts-honduras-guatemala-border/

    Thanks Angelica and Abrra but its not a picture from my camera it’s just a screencap of a youtube video saved to “My Pics” on my computer.

  77. SandyBeaches said

    Thank you SF for keeping watch…You sure know how to bring a tear around first thing in the morning but I enjoy your humor that goes with it…

  78. Abrra said

    Hello everyone at The Voice. Love this site. I’ve been lurking for a while.
    For chat names: I like “Chat A Cappella”
    But would also like to suggest:
    Heaven Sent
    Heavenly Fate
    Our David Destiny

  80. SandyBeaches said

    …#46…Near and dear to me…Thanks goes out to SF, Abrra for the MGR…Just notice the little smile after a youngun calls out…I love you David!…He soaks it in, oh how lovely…Did I tell you how much I like this! haha…

    SB

  81. SandyBeaches said

    The Howl-David Archuleta MGR by Abrra…As of this morning the video has ‘925’ VIEWS…hey they are not all mine either!! As a youth, endeared to me was the book “The Call of the Wild”…beautiful story…

  83. betsy said

    So sorry to have missed the party last night! Looks like inspiration has struck quite a few people. Well, it hasn’t struck me! So I will just enjoy the names being tossed into the ring.
    Off to work
    p.s. If you guys could please spare a good thought or prayer for my son today, I’d appreciate it.

  84. FunnyGirl said

    Angelica – thanks for that nose! what a s’more it is lol. Did you have a chance to listen to Elsewhere by Sarah M?

    Betsy – prayers for your son start now.

  85. TOfan said

    Betsy, sending prayers & good vibes your son’s way!

    smanda!!! *waves*
    Has it really been almost a year since Refnaf & I met you in SLC??? wow … come visit us at http://www.snowangelz.wordpress.com anytime!!!

    Love all the cool name suggestions! (Esp. Hush Cat Chat :lol: )

  86. djafan said

    Good Morning!

    Betsy…Prayers going your way!

    Was inspired by all the posts and David moving the earth in Central America (praying about that too) to hear David sounds. I added videos up top on the left sidebar of David and his famous sounds.

  87. SandyBeaches said

    Sending along prayers and good thoughts for your son Betsy…

    Take Care,

    SB

  88. MT said

    How about EYES ON DAVID with that pic above.

  89. bluesky said

    I have two suggestions, sorry if they have already been covered, don’t have time to read this a.m.

    1. HSHC: high-speed-heart-connection (I think that article says it all)
    2. Hush Cats (ummm lots of puns intended here – not the least, the wonder of ‘getting along’ in this interesting world)

  90. bluesky said

    To be clear: I think you guys do a great job with all of that stuff!!
    I just like to keep a gentle “poke of fun” at myself. Hench “hush cats”

    Good thoughts to you, Betsey.

  91. noamodd said

    Heyyy!
    I’m new here! And I love this post!! haha the eyessssss <333
    Love the hush cats & odd suggestions! :)
    Here are a few names:
    In memory of totoro
    ODD party
    BB is our love
    Eyes are the window to the soul
    The ODD ppl
    The awesomeage room

  92. Fanis Archangelicus said

    Betsy,

    Warm thoughts and sincere prayers for your son and you. {{{HEALING HUGS}}} too.

  93. heidjoy said

    Love many of the ideas. How about this combination Hush cats..ODD fans park here.

  94. bebereader said

    Love the enthusiasm for the new chatroom!
    Looking forward to chatting with all of you when the room opens.

    Betsy: Thoughts and prayers are being sent your way!

    Still waiting for a tweet from David….

    And a Munamup Boomboom to you!

  95. Fanis Archangelicus said

    How about Joyful Voices as a name for the chat room in honor of David singing Joyful, Joyful (how I wish we had a full version of that!) and because he makes us feel joyful/joyous. I made mention of joyful voices in a comment regarding a wonderful post by Kizzi on Snow Angelz and told her I hope she will bring her beautiful phrase here.

    So many good ideas from so many people for a name and so much fun to read about them!

  96. djafan said

    Anyone missing David’s smile?

  97. Fanis Archangelicus said

    Thanks for that Djafan! Yes, I’m missing the little stinker (and I don’t mean his red eye). Hope he’s safe and having a fabulous time! He did promise us a blog, though.

  98. noamODD said

    XD! I love it Djafan!! :)
    How do you guys deal with it?? I know he’s doing charity work but ugh it’s so annoying! =\
    Maybe he want us to appreciate his tweets more.. :) well, yeah I think it works!

  99. Angelica said

    Betsy (((hugs))) and prayers for you and your son.

    Where is that little stinker? Why doesn’t he call, tweet, blog, vlog, morse code, ANYTHING!!! Nada word but “Take on meee, take me oonnn” for 2 whole days? Now you listen to me, David James Mayorga Archuleta…how are you sweetie? Drop us a life line.

    How about…The Munamup Boomboom Room. Bahahah. Waahh.

    Where is baby?

  100. bebereader said

    Angelica: “How about…The Munamup Boomboom Room…”

    I thought of that too, when I typed it as a PS earlier. LOL But..say it five times frontwards and backwards! It’s a tongue twister both ways! Although….The Boomboom Room might work!

  101. rapture said

    Anxiously awaiting the chat room. I regret I have no creative ideas that haven’t already been mentioned. So many good ones!

    The “Eyes” picture above…Where is that from – David’s first album cover?

    Really love it. Very intense.

  102. rapture said

    Oh and Dja – thanks for the smile! right back atcha!

    David is off in Central America on a mission of charity trying to help the less fortunate. Not just talking the talk but walking the walk. So…in the face of such selflessness, I am feeling a little selfish. I don’t need a blog or vlog. I just want to know he’s OK even though I’m sure he is JUST FINE.

    OK. I feel better now. Thanks for listening.

    God moves in mysterious ways. HE gave David to us via a Reality Show which shows God also has a great sense of humor. :D God also knew David would not, could not win because he may not have had the freedom to do what he’s doing right now. God is very smart ;-) God is good! Thank you God!

    So pleased, but not at all surprised Lupe is with David. Seems his mama would like for David to find a Latin girlfriend. :lol:

    Good night all! And for David,

    Dear lord,

    Please take care of David.
    Watch over him, protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.
    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    CLOAK DAVID IN YOUR PROTECTIVE ARMS AS HE JOURNEYS TO FAR AWAY PLACES DOING GOOD AND CHARITABLE WORKS.
    Keep David and his voice healthy & strong as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen

    David, have a good & restful night’s sleep with sweet & happy dreams. Thank you for all you do and for who you are. HAVE A SAFE & ENJOYABLE TIME IN CENTRAL AMERICA. Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always! TAKE CARE!

    True to his word David Morales, Epicmedia wrote his Impressions of David Archuleta in Guatemala (last night)

    This was translated from Spanish to English by Google Translator

    I know it seems odd to see an article by a pop star here in EpicDemia. The truth is that we have spent much of the niche of heavy metal in recent months, but that does not mean that we are not open to appreciate all branches of music. If you look in our library, you’ll see that we have covered earlier artists from other genres. Anyway, last night we had the opportunity to live with one of the most talented pop stars of our time: David Archuleta.

    For if you are one of the few who do not know, David Archuleta achieved fame by being second in American Idol, in 2008. After that, his fame grew exponentially. The first single from his album “David Archuleta,” entitled “Crush” reached second place in Billboard. What is so impressive about this is that the young man, barely 19 years of age now, not only has a voice that would embarrass 90% of the current singers, but does so after having suffered partial paralysis in the vocal cords.

    Archuleta is on a tour with his mother, Lupe, to reach out to poor communities in America. In Guatemala he came through Mentors Organization, dedicated to helping small entrepreneurs to take their businesses forward.

    We had a chance to be in a small press conference with David Archuleta, in which he expressed several interesting points:

    1. His message to young people is that they should always strive to move forward with their dreams and never be discouraged by the conditions under which they live.

    2. As for his book “Chords of Strength” (Strings of Power) tells us that the reason for writing is to be a guide for young people to tell his experiences, especially what he learned to have suffered vocal cord paralysis some years ago. It further attempts to encourage them to move on, to show how one can overcome adversity and succeed in what you propose.

    3. He said the reason he sings is that it is the best way he knows how to express himself. He will be a positive influence for young people, and he feels there are too many negative songs with lyrics that leave nothing good, and that his intention is to provide good music that makes people feel good and that does not carry negative messages.

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    The most impressive of the presentation was that David Archuleta sang a cappella for the media and we all realized the caliber of the artist we had in front of us.

    After that, we were taken to a room that was a kind of chatter, mixed with music. I should mention that all this took place in a chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and that David did not charge for their presence. The nature of the act was a little spiritual, so most of the songs were hymns selected by David Archuleta. The only exceptions were a piano presentation of David Archuleta with the song “Angels” and another check for his mother “Mi Tierra”.

    Interestingly, the hymns he sang were in Spanish, despite having some difficulty speaking the language.

    It is interesting to see how the youth has not been perverted, despite having some time in the world of entertainment. Even admitted to being nervous several times during the night. No arrogance on his face showed, or how it is expressed. Moreover, during the press conference he sought support from his mother when he was nervous. Do not know about you, but I’m used to artists who believe that fame gives them a superior status, and when I saw this star still has respect for his mother, I realized he was onto something else.

    Most strikingly, the day was not music, but when David had to speak. A member of the congregation of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), so that their main purpose was to God and his certainty that His Gospel is true, and how this has helped him in his life. Whether you believe in God or not, I assure you that when you listen, you feel a sort of peace and tranquility. Not that he is the best orator in the world, in fact he tends to wander a lot, but his fervent belief and desire to do everything possible to help others without seeking recognition, is something to behold.

    When I knew I was going to cover a story of David Archuleta, I thought I would be talking about his musical performances and powerful voice. I read what I’ve written and I realize there was not much about it, but rather the impression he left as a human being. Success and fame have already met many artists, but what David Archuleta is, as a human being is something different. He has a genuine kindness. Not seeing him in person, one could not understand. I was more inspired at the end of this event than anything else. That’s something I can’t say about another artist.

    Wow, Bebe. Thanks for posting David Morales’article from EpiDemia. The whole thing is so wonderful and that last paragragh says it all. He truly is “something different.”

    He is something else.

    While I was reading the article, a doctor walked by my desk and asked, “What are you grinning about?” :lol:

    Angelica:

    I agree. It was a wonderful article. Mr. Morales really gets David! Everything he said was spot-on!

    YJ, WAYGA….lol!

    Here is the article translated by Lizzybee from the Golden Archie site.

    This is my own translation of the article. I spent the last hour doing it. I hate those translation sites. I used to get paid 35 cents a word to translate LOL

    “I know it will seem strange to see an article about a pop star here on Epicdemia. Honestly we have very much dedicated ourselves to the genre of Heavy Metal in the past months, but this doesn’t mean that we aren’t open to appreciate all branches of music. If you look at our library, you will see we have covered artists of different genres in the past. Finally, last night we had the opportunity to spend time with one of the most talented pop stars of our time, David Archuleta.

    If you are one of the few who doesn’t know who he is, David Archuleta rose to fame after getting 2nd place on American Idol in 2008. Since then his fame began increasing exponentially. The first single title “Crush” from his debut album title “David Archuleta” went to number 2 on Billboard. What’s impressive about all this is that the young man who just recently turned 19 years old not only has a voice that can put 90% of current vocalists to shame, but he does this even though he has suffered partial vocal chord paralysis.

    Archuleta is on a tour with his mother, Lupe, to grow closer to the impoverished communities of America. He came to Guatemala through an organization dedicated to small businesses and helping them move forward with their businesses called “Mentors”.

    We had the opportunity to be in a small press conference with David Archuleta, during which he expressed many interesting points.

    1. His message for young people is always keep striving to move forward with their dreams and never be discouraged by the conditions they live in.
    2. Regarding his book, Chords of Strength, he said his reason for writing it is to be a guide young people, through his experience, particularly what he learned from suffering from vocal chord paralysis years ago. He tries to encourage them to continue on no matter what, by demonstrating how adversity can be overcome and you can triumph in what you propose to do.

    3. He indicated he sings because it’s the best way he knows how to express himself. He wants to be a positive influence for young people, he feels there are too many songs with negative lyrics that leave nothing good, and he intends to produce good music, that makes people feel good and that doesn’t include negative messages.

    The most impressive part of the presentation was when David Archuleta sang a cappella for the media and we realized the caliber of artist we had standing before us.

    After this, we were invited to a room where there was a type of talk mixed with music. I should mention, this took place in the chapel of a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and David did not charge for his appearance. Actually nobody had to pay to be at the meeting. The type of presentation was a bit religious in nature and as such the majority of the songs were hymns chosen by David Archuleta. The only exceptions to this were David Archuleta’s performance on piano of the song “Angels” and other done by his mom “Mi Tierra”. Interestingly, the hymns he sang were in Spanish, although he had some difficulty speaking the language.
    It’s interesting to see to see how the young man hasn’t been tainted despite having spent some time already in the world of the stars. He actually admitted to being nervous several times through the evening. There is no arrogance on his face, nor in his way of expressing himself. He even looked to his mother for support during the press conference when he felt nervous. I don’t know about you all, but I am used to artists who believe that fame gives them a status of superiority, and to see a star who still has respect for his mom, I realized I was in the presence of someone different.

    What was most impressive about the day wasn’t the music, but rather when David had to speak. A member of the Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormon), his main focus was about God and his belief that the Gospel is true and how this has helped him in his life. Whether or not you believe in God, I assure you that upon hearing him you will feel a sense of peace and tranquility. Not that he’s the best speaker in the world, actually he tends to get off topic a lot, but his fervent belief in what he believes and his desire to do whatever possible to help his fellow man without looking for recognition is something worthy of admiration.

    When I knew that I was going to cover a report on David Archuleta, I thought he was going to be talking about his musical interpretations and his powerful voice. I read what I have written and I realize it turns out that it isn’t so much about that as the impression he made on me as a human being. Fame and success have been achieved by many artists, but what David Archuleta has as a human being is something different. He has a genuine goodness that you just can’t understand if you don’t see him in person. I ended up more inspired after this event than any other thing. This is something I can’t say about any other artist.”

    ( Why am I feeling like David has gained an older brother in Justin Williams?)

    Abrra, I don’t know. I don’t watch AI since season 7 but I googled Justin and it seems he sings beautifully, looks good, is from Utah and survived cancer, (David battled and won vocal paralysis.) Am I even close? Elaborate please.

  181. I was searching for photography tutorials when I found your site. Excellent post. Thank You.

    Oh this day with David has been so cool.. so rich. It’s like having fine chocolates to choose from really. The stories..Bebe’s new slide show,the fun chat room names ( i am liking WAYGA) Gengens site with videos and funny David expression pics, the pictures of David so in his element and glowy with Lupe nearby, the journalist’s precious awakening to David’s grace that goes beyond his bodacious talent, and his expressive recap of all of it.., even the last guy who came here for a completely different issue and received an education, and the love feast… just beautiful .. Thanks everybody who played!

    I saw the pictures of him with David on twitter. When I got home I checked his YouTubes. He did a cover of Crush with a different vibe to it. It was so good. It was like hearing an older version of David. Not the same but Justin definitely makes a connection when he sings.
    Crush cover:

    Then He did a cover of Apologize. Hardly sounds like the same song. Big piano intro, then an amazing performance. This guy has “WINNER” written all over him.
    Apologize cover:

    Welcome to The Voice Gregory Despain! Please come by often.

    Angelica/Bebereader…thank you for the translations.

    I am feeling the love here from all of you and it’s wonderful!

    I am so proud of David, I feel so much admiration and love for him and to hear someone meeting him for the first time and getting him, being impressed by him proves that all you need is to come in contact with him and you sense the difference. I felt it from his audition, maybe because my soul was in waiting, others may need the close up encounters to feel it, whatever it takes.

    So he’s working on a blog….the waiting begins…lol

  186. Angelica said

    Abrra, he is amazing! The tone of his voice is so beautiful. And that cover of Apologize is haunting. I think this young man could go far. Wonder if David has heard these covers? He sounds like someone who David would really get musically.

  187. palmtreephan said

    Nice place y’all have here.

    Angelica, thanks so much for passing along Lizzybee’s direct translation of David Morales’ article. It reads so much better than online translated version. Definitely one of the very best articles pertaining to David from a media outlet that I have read.

    I cannot offer a witty name for the chat but look forward to seeing what ultimately ends up being chosen. Hugs to Abrra for all she does.

    Hey Palm!
    Nice to see you stopping by./hugz back at ya :)

    183/Hi Abbra! Read somewhere that Justin Williams vocal coach is Dean Kaelin and that he made it to the top 24 last season on Idol but was released because his extended family violated the clause regarding not disclosing who is in the top 24. So it appears that he is getting a second chance this year. Sure seems by his song choices that he wants Archuleta fans to notice him! I’m sure David would wish him well.

  190. silverfox said

    I no longer watch AI. Don’t have time, but even if I did, I wouldn’t.

    I watched & listened to the young man Justin’s versions of Crush (pretty good) and Apologize, also OK, but didn’t “feel” it. Then I watched & listened to David’s Apologize and I could FEEL the angst, the pain, the full range of emotions & the passion David expressed each time he sang Apologize, starting with the AI tour then again in the summer tour when he brought it up a notch. We all know no one can match David’s stunning renditions of the songs he sings. He is after all, The Voice! Sometimes I wonder why any singer, professional or amateur, would even try to cover David’s songs or the covers David has done (all of which he owns now). ;-)

    But this Justin is pretty good…he’s just not David. :D

  191. emmegirl said

    Watching the faces of those when he was performing CELD…they look stunned.

  192. JEB said

    190/ Hi Silverfox! I’m mostly a lurker on the fan sites but I always enjoy reading your comments – you are a great supporter of David!! Must admit to being a little protective of David over the Justin Williams guy – he’s definitely a good singer and good looking but I think he should be forging his own way instead of trying to get Archuleta fans to notice him. That’s probably a waste of time since so many of us don’t watch Idol anymore and won’t vote!

  193. Abrra said

    JEB
    Welcome! Did you know lurking has 1000 calories? ;) Glad to have you aboard!

    Bebe!!! Finally caught your slide show. It is just a saaweeet treat! If you could bottle that smile I’d be drunk on sunshine.

    Tweet tweet! Talking about AI. Bummed he will miss the first few shows. So will I. Not bummed though. Might tivo. idk. That Justin seems like the real deal. Not the Voice, but a real artist/musician nonetheless. I wonder did he do the arranging on those covers? Maybe he’s just a David fan and there is no ulterior motive for it.

    David’s blog from Honduras…sweet!!

    Hey there all! Hope the new year has been going well so far still. If it hasn’t been quite what you’ve expected so far, remember it’s still the beginning haha. I’m sure there are many different ways you can improve your start to the year. I’ve really enjoyed it so far!
    So I’ve been in Central America for the week! It’s been so great! I was in Guatemala for my first time during the beginning of the week, and I just landed in Honduras today which is where my mom is from! So I am amongst the people that make up the other half of my blood. After landing, we went straight to visit some of my mom’s family and got to spend time with them. It was great! And we’ve been having baleadas to eat! Which is a native dish here that is sort of like a burrito haha. I don’t remember if I mentioned this before but my mom is actually down here with me, and it’s been awesome having her here.
    If you were wondering why I’m down here, it is because I was invited to come down and see what an organization called Enterprise Mentors was all about. It’s an organization that helps families who struggle with poverty become self-reliant and make a living. We’ve been meeting with several of the families and seeing how it’s affected them. It’s really neat and touching to see how different other people’s lives can be from ours. We take so much for granted way too often in our lives, and it’s amazing the way people live. It amazed me to see how happy they are when they see improvement in their work, and these people are hard workers! If you want to learn more about what I’ve been learning about you can go to http://www.enterprise-mentors.org. It’s a neat cause that gives people that push and encouragement they need to start their own businesses, and become successful after coming from so little.
    Aside from meeting with families and having other meetings, while in Guatemala we were able to go to Antigua which is a beautiful historical city. It was a lot of fun walking around and feeling like we went back into time. We also have been enjoying the food here, and being around the people. I wish we had more time to spend down here! But I’ve been loving it! My mom doesn’t want to leave, and I don’t either lol. But I guess that’s all the more reason to come back! We still have quite a bit we’re doing down here this week, and meeting with more people. And the little kids are so cute! haha. Sometimes we hand out lollipops and they come swarming around you.
    Well we’re headed out again, but I just wanted to drop a quick note and let you guys know what I’ve been up to! I’m really sorry that I haven’t updated you guys with a blog lately, but it’s been a little difficult coming across internet and time at the same time haha. But I’ll be sure to let you know the rest of what goes on this week later on! I’ll try and show some pictures too, even though I look nasty and need a haircut REALLY bad! But anyway, until next time. Hasta luego!

    Song for the day: Mi Tierra – Gloria Estefan

    This is a song my mom performs every now and then. She actually performed it at one of the events we had down here.

  196. Abrra said

    I never got the impression Justin was coat tailing off David. They are both from Utah so it follows that they would know each other professionally.As Benton and David know each other, or the Osmonds.

    I am DVRing Idol and watching whenever:) I am happy to have someone worthy to root for.

    Love that blog…Mi Tierra. “This is a song my mom performs every now and then. She actually performed it at one of the events we had down here.”

    Oh really? Does he not know we have scouts peeking around corners in Guatemala and relaying messages to us. LOL!

    And this had me ROTFLMAO!! “I’ll try and show some pictures too, even though I look nasty and need a haircut REALLY bad!”

    He looks nasty. As if. As I said to him at a VIP “PULEEEEEZE,” when I told him I take terrible pictures and he had the nerve to reply, “Me too.”
    Then he laughed and said, *drum roll* Are you ready?

    “But I need a hair cut.”

    We saw the pics from Guatemala. He’s just nasty. eeeewwwww..

  200. bebereader said

    He needs a haircut? I have one word for him…Munamup BoomBoom. Okay two words! LOL

    Welcome JEB and other new posters!

    I watched some of AI tonight, in between phone calls. IDK about anyone else but I’m missing Paula Abdul. Mary K. Blige was a substitute judge tonight. I half expected her to sing “One”, David’s version, of course. LOL

    And this had me ROTFLMAO!! “I’ll try and show some pictures too, even though I look nasty and need a haircut REALLY bad!”

    Angelica, I was down there with you. After watching Bebe’s marvelous slide show, I was just thinking today, “How is it humanly possible to NEVER, NEVER, NEVER take a bad picture?” (Yes, I did just split that infinitive.) If I wore a brown, knit cap like David did at one of the Jingle thingy interviews, I would look like an acorn. I would actually like proof that he can for a brief moment be something other that gorgeous or adorable.

    I have obviously abandoned that whole spend-less-time-online New Year’s Resolution thing. I think I’ll go with the eat-less-tofu resolution instead.

    JEB #192, Thanks! Not saying this guy is coat-tailing David, just saying he’s not David. There’s only one…

    Ranaid #197, wow, CHILLS! It felt like looking at what could very well be the near future. :D

    My wish now is to attend a Fireside by David before I leave this earthly plane for the Great Beyond. Just once. Does that sound weird? To hear David testify would be another dream come true. Firesides are not just for LDS are they? If so, :(

    Good night all! And for David, (who does not need a haircut, IMO!),

    Dear lord,

    Please take care of David.
    Watch over him, protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.
    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    CLOAK DAVID IN YOUR PROTECTIVE ARMS AS HE JOURNEYS TO FAR AWAY PLACES DOING GOOD AND CHARITABLE WORKS.
    Keep David and his voice healthy & strong as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen

    David, have a good & restful night’s sleep with sweet & happy dreams. Thank you for all you do and for who you are. HAVE A SAFE & ENJOYABLE TIME IN CENTRAL AMERICA. Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always! TAKE CARE!

    Renaid, Renaid, Renaid….OMGOSH that film is incredible! Gave me chills. Everybody go watch. ^^^^

  205. SandyBeaches said

    We often see two Davids sometimes in the same day…

    Right now we are seeing and hearing from perhap the younger David who everyone is talking about being with his mom and singng with his mom…

    Then, just spend a bit of time looking at the picture that heads the article…Wow, that is not the same boy with his mom…

    You never know if you will see the boy or the man…so interesting.

    203/Silverfox, all are welcome at LDS firesides!

    191/ Emmegirl, I tried many times to do that myself but had such difficulty taking my eyes off David that I failed to note the crowd reaction.

    201/ ….and Xaris? I gave up on my hope of ever catching David actually looking “nasty” the day long, long ago when he posted a vlog where he sheepishly declared he had just crawled out of bed, went running, still needed a shower and, you guessed it…..he couldn’t have looked more perfect. I mean, who is he anyway?? Who could even answer the phone in that condition let alone being able to post a video blog knowing full well it is destined to be disseminated throughout the internet? Must be nice….sigh.

  208. munkmusic said

    HI ! coming out of lurkdom! WOW! David is doing such great things! Doesn’t it just want to make you do a little better, or help someone out….and his voice just fills up the soul! He is the greatest!

    Been thinkin some more about the chat room….What do you think about “THE ZONE” ? It seems that that is where David goes when he sings and that is where we will go to chat…..is that corny or what?

  209. bebereader said

    Go to next post to vote for our 24/7 video chatroom>>>>>

  210. munkmusic said

    oops! sorry! thought you were still taking ideas!

    Some of us on another site were thinking it would be a great idea for JIVE to release SAVE THE DAY and have the proceeds go to releif efforts in Haiti! Isn’t that a great idea?!
