For a few years now, we have been asking ourselves and each other about the mystery and the magnetism that surrounds the relationship between David and his fans. In season seven on American Idol, Andrew Lloyd Webber advised David that he should keep his eyes open, but as his soul seeks its freedom, David continues in his own style, reaching his worldwide fans who share some of the same passions and vibrations.
Unable to fall to sleep one night, I did a search and found the keys that might unlock a mystery that has almost haunted me. What I found sounded rather technical, methodical, a little mystical and scientific. As I kept reading, the key piece to the three-year old puzzle was about to be revealed. “Who is he really?” and in the same context, “Who in this world are we?” was at my finger tips.
I found in the different writings that in modern science, the influence of music (or of sound and vibration), touches our senses from without. So then, what is the source of the influence from within? The key to the secret of the influence of music is hidden in the source where sound comes from. The source that we listen to with relentless admiration is ‘David’.
We know the amazing power of David’s voice over others, so this is where David’s fans play into the mystery. Sensitive people can feel the effects of his voice either by watching him in person or listening to him at a distance. For some who have never seen David perform live, there is an immediate connection because of the sensitivity level of the listener. David’s profound development of mental awareness of feelings and personal motivation is expressed in his speaking, but more especially in his singing.
David Archuleta ~ Joy To The World~And Wonders of His Love
From the earliest of times, it has been said that our breath is our very life and it personifies outwardly. The sound of David’s breath becomes his voice. If there is anything in this world that can give expression to the mind and the feelings, it is ‘the voice’. David makes a deep impression on us because the power that we feel is not in the words but in what is behind the words. We are in awe when David sings in Spanish or in French or Latin. It is the familiar nuances and the beauty of his voice, not the meaning of the words that has us simply spellbound.
The power of David’s mental awareness of feelings and the motivations in his voice come from the strength of his breath and we feel it and are deeply impressed. His voice creates a resonance of emotion in him (which he sometimes calls a shiver) and that vibration of music that rises and falls is the magic that we hear. The power of David’s voice on a listener depends upon the level of spiritual evolution that he has the unique ability to touch. I don’t believe that there ever will be another astounding emotional song like “Silent Night” that was sung last December. Every person in the audience felt the emotions that emanated from his eyes, his hand, the tilt of his head, the single hum and the feelings that came from the depth of his soul.
All that is beautiful and in good taste is understood, enjoyed and appreciated by only a few and sometimes this can become a hindrance to a singer’s career development. Today, people follow the crowds instead of the great souls of the music industry and David is one of the most creative and passionate singers of this generation. While some young singers fall from grace due to their growing personal problems, their popularity rises. Maybe in this stress filled generation of youth, there are those who identify with those singers and fewer who are able to identify with brilliant performers.
David has expressed to us a dream he had of performing before thirty people. In this group of listeners, most would be people who are congenial, sympathetic, understanding, and responsive to his music. These fans bring quite a wonderful vibration to him as compared sometimes to an audience of perhaps a different vibration. I can only hope that we could be in that audience of thirty people.
Possibly there will never be another audience of several thousands who were of the same musical spirit as David was in December of last year. The audience listened intently, they responded, they became attuned to him and they shared in the magnificent musical celebrations. When this happened, a phenomenon was created. What was born there in that cold December can not be unborn. It will be recreated each time he takes the stage__any stage. Those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear will witness once again, the birth of a star.
