DAVID ARCHULETA

David Archuleta ~ Keys to the Mystery

Posted by SandyBeaches on Saturday, October 8, 2011

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.

    Lovely article, Bebe, I can appreciate and agree with everything you wrote. Part of David’s magnetism is the quality of people that he brings together. David is surrounded by those that are in tune with his spirit and each other’s. My 30 year old daughter who has three small children told me a few years ago that she didn’t think that there was anything special about David’s voice. I was disappointed until I realized that she never really listened. When I played his music, the little ones were constantly interrupting and making demands on her. Of course it distracted her from fully emerging herself into the moment. Her oldest daughter who is a very sensitive child listens to David at night before going to sleep. She loves his voice and it comforts her. I am an older person who is home most of the time with very few distractions and has gone through years of experiences, good and sad. I have the advantage of thoroughly being able to put my entire focus on “The Voice”. Listening brings back memories and compels me to look on the positive side of those experiences. David’s voice soothes, comforts and brings new life into my soul. Knowing where that voice comes from enhances the experience because of the beauty of the soul that dwells in David. I can just sit back in my comfortable chair and as Paula A. said, “soak it all in”.

    I do have a husband to take care of. Luckily he loves David too.

    Last Saturday was one of those rare Saturdays I was alone all day so I did laundry and decided to press my husbands shirts myself. Before I knew it I was cleaning closets, drawers, and stuff I put off because it is tedious stuff. My daughter called wanting to know if I wanted her to come stay with me – I didn’t. Oh it was so relaxing listening to Davids voice as loud as I wanted on the Bose! I barely answered the phone and I certainly didn’t answer the door! I watched season 7, caught up on all the posts and comments, listened to every song I could find, I read the one and only book on my Ipad – Chords of Strength, I ate ice cream for dinner, I watched videos of David and on and on. I guess my point is being able to listen to David the way I did energized me. I felt happy. I was ok being alone because I really wasn’t. I didn’t feel the urge to go to a store or out to eat. I just wanted to stay home with him. And when it was time to finally go to bed I did, listening to him. The more I listened the more I wanted to. On Sunday when everyone asked me what I had done by myself I sand “nothing” because they wouldn’t understand, they don’t get it. They were impressed at what I had accomplished but they don’t know where the energy came from – poor them! I really don’t know why I am telling you all of this. Maybe it’s because I know you will understand.

    See you in Salt Lake!

    I can relate. Some days when people ask what did you do yesterday or what are you doing today? I’ll say “Nothing”.teehee

    Suzy Q,

    Though I’d love to have written this article, credit goes to our wonderful Staff Writer, SandyBeaches.

  5. KathyH said

    Absolutely beautiful piece, SandyBeaches, And spot. on.

    I, too, look for opportunities to “do nothing.” Often the chance to “do nothing” doesn’t come at home, but in my car. Pop in one of my favorite CDs, drive and listen (and sing when I feel the need, but then I usually have to listen through twice so I can also hear.) Often, these drives necessitate going the long way to the store or wherever my errands lead. And often, the long way even involves more remote roads, so that I can crank up the volume and actively listen (or sing) with fewer distractions.

    All of this time, and I’m still enchanted and feel ever blessed to have watched American Idol during its seventh season. David caught my interest in his audition clip and my heart in his Heaven performance. I can’t imagine ever wanting to reclaim my heart since it feels so much bigger now, with him in it.

  6. Heidijoy said

    SandyBeaches!!!!!!!!!! What a beautiful article. This is one, I’ll be reading again to savor it like I do David’s music. I relive that Motab experience just about every evening since GCT DVD came out. I also am listening to it in the car. David’s Christmas music is something I enjoy all year long. I also of course listen to his other music and I appreciate you describing the connections so well.

    The pictures that accompany the article are fantastic. Thanks to Angelica too!

    SB,

    I’ve been waiting for a plausible explanation of our attachment to David and why we are inexplicably drawn to him. Why he has became an integral part of our daily lives, even if in “secret” for some of us. Why some of us feel a connection to David through his singing and interpretation of a song, any song and others don’t. While there are not many who don’t admit David can sing, has a distinct, unique & great voice, they don’t become committed life-long fans like us. It’s a mystery or at least it was until your beautiful and informative article, with gorgeous videos as proof.

    For me, after seeing David perform live & before the melancholy sets in, I feel a euphoria, a high & a feeling of well-being that I imagine a drug addict must feel after a fix. I can’t describe the feeling any better than that. Quite simply, it’s that he moves me beyond explanation and I can’t wait for that next “fix”.

    As an artist & performer, David is still an enigma. The power he has to transform from just David to an electrifying presence on stage is still a mystery which I don’t think we will ever begin to understand. This transformation is not conscious. He just becomes one with the music. We see it, we feel it, we enjoy it, we love it, but we don’t understand how he does it. Such is the power of David Archuleta.

    SB, you continue to amaze me with your insights & admiration of David.

    Hooked, I wondered why you were ironing your hubby’s shirts that day & why you were too busy to “talk”. (((hugs))) Love you much!!

  8. TXNancy said

    Thank you for your wonderful article, SandyBeaches! Your ‘keys to the mystery’ can help us explain to others why we are so drawn to David. “David makes a deep impression on us because the power we feel is not in the words but is behind the words”….loved this! No matter where we are, when we hear David’s voice, he gives us such joy because we know that he BELIEVES what he is singing….and we know his beautiful character. This was never more evident than last Dec…..yes, a phenomen was created during that magical weekend in Salt Lake!!!!

    KathyH….”I can’t imagine ever wanting to reclaim my heart since it feels so much bigger now, with him in it” Special words…I feel the same!

    Hooked…..”Maybe it’s because I know you will understand”. Instantly a tear fell……’WE’ do understand………..I LOVE being a fan of David with all of you! Hope to meet many of you in Salt Lake.

    SB, I read your great article AGAIN and it is REALLY A GREAT ARTICLE! I know it took time & research and it was written with love for David and because of your love & understanding of music and how & why it affects each of us. The article itself is a work of art. Thank you!

    As I read, I wondered and of course knew the answer…how many celebrities, whether singers, actors, writers, etc, have fans who actually do research to write such an article in order to enable the fans to understand the celebrity better? How many celebrities have fans who use their own talents to promote the celebrity by writing great articles dedicated to them, or making great tribute videos, or starting a charity in the celebrity’s name, or having a Blog or running a fan site like this one, separate from their own Official Websites? The answer is pretty much none or not many!

    David is an exception because he is exceptional artist and human being.

    “It is the familiar nuances and the beauty of his voice, not the meaning of the words that has us simply spellbound.” This.

    SF, thanks for you lovely comment in the previous thread. Ditto. ♥

  12. Hooked said

    SB your article is the best explanation so far. I can picture you writing this as beautiful as it is. The only explanation I could ever come up with is that for some reason, “we were chosen”

  13. poof said

    David is certainly in good company. Has someone already mentioned the guest artist for the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Program this year? Nathan Gunn. Oh my. He is an amazing operatic hunky baritone. I am soo proud and impressed with David and doubly impressed the choir chose him amid so much experienced talent. ….. back to watching Glad Tidings,,,,,, I don’t have it memorized……

  14. silverfox said

    Betsy, ((hugs)) :D

    If you look at David in that video in York, you can see by his eyes that he had been very sick and was still not feeling 100%, but you sure would never know it by his performance! He could have cancelled his appearance, but always the consumate professional, his show went on. He has never, as far as I know, cancelled a performance except for one due to bad weather. Gotta love him and boy do we ever!

    Poof, when I read about the guest artists for the MOTAB concert this year, I too felt so proud & happy all over again for David.

    Hooked, can’t tell you how glad I am we were both “chosen”!

  15. SandyBeaches said

    Thank you Angelica for the lead picture. The artwork of that picture alone and what it signifies is captivating at least to me! I also enjoyed the collage with the two key holes to unlock I suppose or they are already unlocked. I stopped at the lead picture, then the collage and then such a handsome picture of David in his favorite apparel! Well if not his then it is mine! You can’t accomplish wonderful, artistic impressions of just anyone.

    Hooked, you had a day by yourself something like parts of the days that I have had lately. It is true that the more you listen and watch the Christmas DVD, the more that you want to but it has to be when all is quiet to have full enjoyment.

    SF, I just came in from working outside all day. My son and grandson helped us so I couldn’t break away easily to read and comment. Thank you to everyone who has been here today and commented on the almost mystical article. Angelica helped with the mystical part but David puts us in that place.

    I wonder if David is also enjoying the afterglow from the release of the Christmas DVD from last year or has had lots of congratulations because he seems to be in the same mood as some of us.

    It is Thanksgiving here in Cananda and tomorrow or Monday will be the days of great dinners following the harvests that have just been completed including the great pumpkins and from the valley here our harvest of apples.

    But for later this evening, I am going to listen to some special music.

    Enjoy the weekend everyone!

    I came to this site because someone on twitter tweeted about SandyBeaches article. I really enjoyed it!! David has a way of drawing people in when he performs like no other. I don’t have the ability to describe how I feel about David & his music like SandyBeaches does, but all I know is there is no other singer out there today that effects me the way he does!

  17. tanya said

    i think it’s also because david is extremely good looking. so the combination of the voice and his looks and his personality is enough to make some of us fall in love with him every time we see or hear him. for the people who don’t find him irresistible maybe his voice is not enough to make them devoted fans. i think that’s why many of his fans are older. we take the time to appreciate him while younger fans are so distracted with their pods/pads/phones and daily dramas and school/work that they don’t have the time to pay attention to all the little things that make david so special.

  18. Dayzee said

    SB!! You have written a masterpiece!! And on my favorite subject. Thank you!!

    Every morning I turn to The Voice Unplugged to start my day. Every morning I am amazed at how beautiful David is. I wonder if David was always that beautiful to me, or if my perception of beauty has evolved with my appreciation of all the things David represents.

    Then I listen while David sings a few notes and that decides my outlook for the day. He is singing there on TVU with no idea of who I am, but changes my life. SB writes “the power that we feel is not in the words, but in what is behind the words”. David reaches out to us and those of us who make the connection feel that power to a degree that leaves us stunned. There is no possible way we could deny the magnetic pull of that power.

    SB talks of David’s breath. I love to listen to him breathe. When he sang The Broken Road his breathing was so infused with the notes of that song it brought another dimension to the lyrics. As Gladys noted, when he sings, we believe.

    I am looking forward to another Motab appearance for David. I cannot imagine that he would not be invited to repeat his role some time in the future.

  19. Suzy-Q said

    Sorry SandyBeaches for not giving you the credit for the article. While there are some advantages to being older and wiser, I have to deal with being forgetful and making dumb mistakes. Forgive me.

    “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.”

    That’s the secret for me. How he does this and makes it new each time.David bring his own style to any song, making us forget if anyone ever sang it before him.

    Oh Dayzee! Your comments are most appreciated and enjoyable.

    You know I believe that it has taken us this long to evolve ourselves into fans who appreciate all that David gives in a performance. Our level of appreciation for him and for other fans has grown by leaps and bounds.

    I am looking forward to out musical experiences again this Christmas and hopefully we can share it with all fans through videos and stories.

  22. SandyBeaches said

    SuzyQ! It is easy to make that mistake when we are all speaking a common language on the same subject!! With Bebe, we say the same things often anyway and we have done that for years.

    Tawna, good to see someone else notices David is “extremely good looking”. Thank heavens for this place where we can speak our thoughts.
    Just watched David do his introduction speech on The Real Winning Edge. Guess what? He was extremely good looking. :)

    SB, Wonderful, wonderful article! And this …

    “It is the familiar nuances and the beauty of his voice, not the meaning of the words that has us simply spellbound.”

    Exactly. The words don’t matter because we are listening to his heart. ♥

    Kathy H, “I can’t imagine ever wanting to reclaim my heart since it feels so much bigger now, with him in it.” ♥ Love that. Ditto for me.

    Hooked: I have days like that too. Funny how I can just turn my music up loud and what seemed like drudgery before is suddenly done almost without thinking about it. I actually enjoy myself while working around the house!

  26. tawna21 said

    SB— If I were to make my sleepless nights as productive as yours, I wouldn’t feel so bad about having a sleepless night. :) Seriously, your article is wonderful! It is the explanation we’ve been waiting for. Thanks!

    “It is the familiar nuances and the beauty of his voice, not the meaning of the words that has us simply spellbound .”

    and “…the power that we feel is not in the words but in what is behind the words.”

    This is why the non-fans have so much trouble understanding us. They don’t understand where David’s music is coming from. It doesn’t come from his mic, or the sound booth, or the huge speakers strategically placed. David’s music comes straight from David’s heart and soul. Our hearts and souls have been touched and opened by him and we can ‘hear him’.

    Dayzee #23, that was Tanya that made that comment, but you certainly won’t get a disagreement from me on it! (That neck that is wrapped so smoothly in that tux shirt is a-maz-ing! :) )

    Hooked #2, I love days like that! David on the Bose is something else. I had mine cranked up one day, and went out to change the water on the garden, and shocked myself at how loud I had it. I was giving a David concert to the neighbors. **didn’t care enough to turn it down when I went inside**

    SF #14, you are so right … “Gotta love him and boy do we ever!” David’s integrity and loyalty to his fans is something he places above his own needs, sometimes to a fault. The loyal fans would definitely be understanding were he to have to cancel because of sickness. Sadly, the media has a heyday with that type of thing, so then it makes the not-so-loyal fans and the general public really take that message and make a mess of things.

    Waiting for Salt Lake! *just wish I could go to more*

  28. Sandybeaches – I love this article because it helps me reconcile some of my doubts and confusion about my feelings of being a fan of David. Feelings of immaturity, selfishness, acting irrational and the “what am I doing here?” Made me realize I am struggling with my ODD not with my love of David’s voice and all he represents. I doubt that would ever change cause it just hasn’t. So thank you for this.

    ” Sensitive people can feel the effects of his voice either by watching him in person or listening to him at a distance.” “…. the power that we feel is not in the words but in what is behind the words.” “It is the familiar nuances and the beauty of his voice, not the meaning of the words that has us simply spellbound.” For me this is it! This explains what happened in 2008 and continues to affect me to this day. It’s a personal thing that’s why it affects me in a different way than it affects others, especially those closest to me.. But I can’t deny it’s affect on me nor do I want to.

    For the longest time, I thought there might be a scientific reason. That everyone hears sounds differently because our ears might function differently. Your explanation makes more sense..

    Dayzee#18 – “….or if my perception of beauty has evolved with my appreciation of all the things David represents.” So beautifully expressed. He definitely has changed my perception of beauty.

    Wonderful article, SB! So much food for thought. Thanks for helping us further comprehend this mysterious pull David has on so many of us!.

  31. Heidijoy said

    SandyBeaches, Thank you for the research and taking the time to write such a beautiful article. I’ve re-read it and decided to have it in front of me while I watched the GCT DVD last evening. I wanted to soak in the words you had written while listening and watching David. It was another beautiful experience. Often when I studied in school,I would write things now so I could remember and understand what I was reading. I did that this morning as I savored your words and assimilated the messages. I also re-read each person’s response to your article so I could appreciate the audience much like we do when we are in a David concert. I want to be in that audience of 30 or more as you described. I could write down many of the things you wrote that impacted me, in fact I did. Happy Thanksgiving. I am grateful.

  32. rose said

    “Hooked” commented that she listened to Season 7. Is Season 7 available for purchse on CD or DVD? I would like to get it and have never found it to be available although all the first six seasons are available. Also the first six Seasons were rerun on TV but they never ran Season 7, unless I missed it. Can someone give me the answers?

  33. bebereader said

    SandyBeaches,

    Thank you! Your article shed some light on this crazy, fantastic, puzzle we constantly try to put together.

    “It is the familiar nuances and the beauty of his voice, not the meaning of the words that has us simply spellbound.”

    This is explains why David can be understood in any language. It explains why Gladys became a fan even though she didn’t understand the words he was singing. It explains why I fell in love with Contigo at first listen, even though I didn’t fully get the meaning. It’s not a requirement to understand the words because we understand the emotion; humming, growling, grunting all tell the story of the songs.

    “The power of David’s voice on a listener depends upon the level of spiritual evolution that he has the unique ability to touch.”

    Although I understand exactly what you mean, SB, this is a little more difficult to understand because everyone has ears don’t they? Aren’t all ears made the same? Now I’m getting carried away. haha

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and to all of our Canadian commenters.

    Had a great time in chat last night!
    Sky, if you’re reading this…we missed you last night!

    I believe that God speaks to us through David and that, in fact, He sent him to us. That’s the reason David is so unique. I can’t believe it can be anything else.

    SandyBeaches, love your article. I often wonder why David isn’t as popular as he should be. God knows he has “it” in all aspects. I’m just glad I “get him” and enjoy listening to whatever he sings or speaks! David has made me a much calmer, more relaxed person.. and the people I’ve met because of David have all been quality people. I love the company David keeps. ;)
    Just watched this interview of the Civil Wars on their FB page.interesting comments starting just past the 6:00 mark. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=GeVSnp_9YFI#!

  37. SandyBeaches said

    PattiNC…Civil Wars has just stated the same convictions to their music as David has to his. He is right there in the same place and now having the biggest hits and being in the absolute spotlight is far off in the distance and has become insignificant to me. I believe that we finally have a grasp of the understanding of the break with the industry that some musicians have taken. More importantly, he is sure of the place that he is in. It just took a little while understanding what it is all about!

    SB

  38. silverfox said

    PattiNC,

    Thanks for posting the interview video of The Civil Wars. It was very interesting and helped me understand better the reasons why David has chosen to take his time in signing with a label. Granted, David is young and is fairly new at this game, but haven’t we all said he is years ahead of his time? David may not have a degree in music or a degree in business but it’s clear he knows exactly what he’s doing. He made a very smart move when he parted ways with his old label & who knew at that time the label would be no more within months? I believe he has great instincts about which direction is the right one for him. He’s in no hurry to sign over his right to make the kind of music he wants to make. I salute him for that. If he never signs with a major label and decides to record new music independently, he has a core fan base he will always be able to count on. We will buy his music and we will go to his concerts. We are not going anywhere.

    Which brings me to another point.

    Bebe,

    You asked SB, “Although I understand exactly what you mean, SB, this is a little more difficult to understand because everyone has ears don’t they? Aren’t all ears made the same”

    Well yes, everyone has ears, but not all hear everything the same way. For example, when my son’s were younger, they listened to heavy metal and some other stuff they called music and they loved it. But I, on the other hand heard nothing but loud noise which was very unpleasant to MY ears. I could never understand how they could listen to that noise for hours on end. Then they got into the Beatles, which was more pleasing to the ears. So No, not all ears hear the same thing in the same way.

    The message I got from SB when she said,

    “The power of David’s voice on a listener depends upon the level of spiritual evolution that he has the unique ability to touch.” ,

    has nothing to do with any particular religion or beliefs, but in what we see and love and believe to be the inherent goodness & beauty in the world around us. That is what I believe having a certain level of “Spiritual Evolution” means. David is in a very high Spiritual Plane and I believe he would be there even if he were not deeply religious.

    We have heard or read the stories, including my own, about how he has “changed” peoples lives just by the “sound” of his voice. It’s not coincidental. The more we heard him the more “spiritual” we became. It didn’t matter if he was singing Imagine, Angels, Zero Gravity, Don’t Let Go, or Silent Night. The power is there & it’s in The Voice.

    All IMO, of course.

  39. pattiNC said

    SB, my daughter (20), who is the one that got me interested in David, but has now moved on to a new favorite…another singer not with a label..Tyler Ward. I’m looking at his YT videos have millions of views (one with 16 million)…is currently on tour, has his music on Itunes, etc. He has his own studio in Colorado. He is good..not as good as David, but has a huge following. It (being label less) is working for him too.

    Silverfox#40

    I understood, I was just being silly. LOL :)

    Everyone’s sensitivities are as different as their personalities. I might enjoy avocados and Rogers and Hammerstein musicals while the next person prefers kiwi and dramas. We each process information, sound or otherwise in our own unique way. I just get frustrated sometimes that more people are not evolved spiritually enough to hear the healing, mesmerizing power of David’s voice.

  41. jans11 said

    My computer has been messing up and I couldn’t even get on chat last night. It’s letting me post this, at least.

    Thanks SB for your wonderful in-depth explanation of your analysis on David. You are so good with words and did a fabulous job!

    David did perform before 30 people at my first VIP. It was laid back, informal and so one on one!! I had an unforgetable comversion with him about the picture on my phone from our first meeting and the “Crush” ringtone! He also told us that he didn’t like his picture on the “crush” album.

    I’m a proud David follower and always will be!

    Love that standing O after Silent Night!

    Thanks so much for your thoughtful and well-expressed article. I like the way you think. Very much.

    Vibration is where we “begin”: in the womb with the heartbeat, the sound of the mothers breathing, etc. The ears (or hearing) is the first sense to develop after touch. Hearing and “balance” are inextricably connected. We use our ears to know “where we are in space” in order to hold our head up and then sit and walk. So… hearing, vibration, sound and orientation are closely related.

    David sings from “where he is”; from his own orientation. And he is aware of other orientations as well. It may be partly that the “knowledge” and “trust” he has of another orientation, another place or awareness (so real to him that he is willing to fling himself into space ((that place without the “feather” aka: Dumbo)) … and trust himself to the unsee-able support of the real) –
    (ummm….. bluesky….. you are rambling again….. I mean……really rambling…. *sigh*)
    - it may be that that very knowledge is what creates the shift, the warp in time/space, the thing that settles my feet on the very real ground of the true (however ephemeral it may seem at the moment)…. ((warning, more rambling coming!)) ….. so that the familiar suddenly is the strange, and the strange the most familiar thing in the world.

    Thanks, DA. You rock my world. ^_^

    (Done rambling.)

    If anyone is interested, Q102 has the next bracket up (Jesse McCartney vs David) among others:
    http://www.q102.com/pages/hot-boy/ and Jesse is ahead at the moment. The only reason I care is that I want david at that stupid Jingle Ball (wishful thinking but it would be great!)

    SandyBeaches—I have read and re-read your thoughtful article and all the great comments on it.

    “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.”

    You have provided us with a wonderful answer and I am so grateful to be able to be counted in as one who is blessed with the ability to hear and feel the remarkable ability he has to connect through his music and voice.

    To be very honest, I think I could be stone deaf and still feel the magic by just watching him. As Paula once said ” You have this aura about you.” That aura had me hooked before he even sang a note at his first appearance before Randy, Simon and Paula.

    I have watched many videos without the sound ( on purpose) and can’t take my eyes off him, because he is still speaking to me—somehow.

    “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.”

    Thanks SB

    SB,

    Very thoughtful article delving into what compels us to remain fixated and fascinated more than 3 years later. There is a certain capacity needed to appreciate David, whether it evolves from life experience or heightened spiritual awareness. At the risk of sounding elitist, I think most people have only a superficial admiration for art/artists/music. It is a distraction within the world they move and work and play that approaches but does not touch them on a deep level. They are good people, but they seem to me to be almost asleep to the wonder around them, not just regarding David, but to many things. They are bombarded daily with images, music, and information of no value. So satiated are they with this steady diet of junk food, they turn their noses up at anything better. They honestly can not see the worth of it. It’s as though their feelings are blunted to all but the most outrageous or banal around them.

    I have posted this quote by William Wordsworth before but it is one that many years ago, when I first read it, left an impression on me so forcefully that I never forgot it.

    “For the human mind is capable of being excited without the application of gross and violent stimulants; and he must have a very faint perception of its beauty and dignity who does not know this, and who does not further know, that one being is elevated above another, in proportion as he possesses this capability. It has therefore appeared to me, that to endeavor to produce or enlarge this capability is one of the best services in which, at any period, a Writer* can be engaged; but this service, excellent at all times, is especially so at the present day. For a multitude of causes, unknown to former times, are now acting with a combined force to blunt the discriminating powers of the mind, and, unfitting it for all voluntary exertion, to reduce it to a state of almost savage torpor.” Preface to Lyrical Ballads, 1800.

    *or any artist

    So we have some, not “capable of being excited without the application of gross and violent stimulants” who flock in droves to the circus acts, strip-tease artists, laser light shows, dancers, acrobats, and the fraudulent magic of auto-tune. Others, whose “discriminating powers” have been blunted and “reduced to a state of almost savage torpor” stick with the known: the predictable music, the genres/tunes they have always listened to, all their lives and feel comfortable with. Both groups can not be reached, the one without assaulting their sensibilities, the other not at all except by the most superficial means. We live in the Information Age of TMI, (too much information) blunting the sensibilities of all but a few who still possess the power to feel the delicate, “nuances and…beauty of his voice..”

    I keep waiting on the world to change.

    SB, this is a lovely article. Thank you for bringing another dimension to understanding why we are so drawn to David. I love reading the articles here at The Voice. I have many of them saved for future reading in my special “David File” and this one will be joining them.

  48. djafan said

    SB,

    You’ve written a beautiful and thought provoking article and for now you’ve satisfied my need for understanding the why of how I feel when it comes to David. This happens every time this subject is tackled, I get it now and then I go back to asking myself why? lol You’ve definitely hit a nerve, or several. These are now added to my list of why I find myself in this place, a good place :)

    “The sound of David’s breath becomes his voice.”

    “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”

    “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.”

    Thank you SB for continuing to challenge my thinking with your articles.

    I wish I wasn’t as inept at expressing my thoughts and what is in my heart. Thankfully, I am able to understand most of what is written here by the talented and creative writers in this site. While I agree that there is that “something” in David’s voice that has at times, brought me to tears just by the mere sound of it, I had never stopped wondering why I was so instantly and unexpectedly just taken a hold of by him before I even heard him sing one note. And I can honestly say that the thought of him being physically beautiful did not, at first anyway, enter my mind either. But, I knew, I could feel something in his very being. Something that I vaguely recognized, maybe. Innocence? Vulnerability? Those came to mind. But there was something else, still. Just tonight as I was driving home alone from visiting my elderly parents my thoughts went wondering as I was listening to David’s voice from the CD player. There was one thought that has come to me before in regards to him. It has been mentioned here that David is in a higher spiritual plane. And this from the William Wordsworth quote in Angelica’s post: “that one being is elevated above another, in proportion as he possesses this capability.” My thought is that David is in what is called a “State of Grace”. And this State of Grace is the source of the “nuances and…beauty of his voice..” I’m probably not saying anything that has not been already expressed here before with different words. I think that what draws us to him also is that this State of Grace is so rare and scarce among adult humans that when we see it, we can’t help but be strongly attracted to it by its light.

  51. SandyBeaches said

    Well thank you Djafan for your kind words and for now you are satisfied? You mean I have to go back to the drawing board soon? Well, OK! You are a hard lady to please! You have a list? ;) Yes, there is one more question…

  52. SandyBeaches said

    I was working for hours yesterday on road contruction and it is quite the job especially when it was so very hot out in the sun. But you see, I had a road to construct with my grandson and I was driving the dump truck in and out of the sand pile. Yes, oh yes why me? So I was exhausted last evening very early and with Thanksgiving well under way, we decided to call it a day when the sun went down, thankfully. But the only problem was that when the Westminster chime struck four I was awake. I turned on my phone and I found 10 additional interesting comments to read and take in that kept me for awhile until I could fall back to sleep.

    Thank you to all of you for the thought provoking and most interesting comments that add to our knowledge along this journey of ours.

    SB

  53. djafan said

    SB, lol Yes for now but it has everything to do with me. See this journey I’m on continues to dumbfound me. It is so completely out of character for me, don’t get me wrong I’ve not only accepted it but have wholeheartedly embraced it. You have know idea the looks I got when family and friends found out I was driving to Arizona for the weekend and without my husband! Never in a million years would I have considered doing something like that about three years ago. So I go through these self analysis sessions every so often :)

    Bluesky…Please don’t every stop rambling ♥

    Gayle… “I think that what draws us to him also is that this State of Grace is so rare and scarce among adult humans that when we see it, we can’t help but be strongly attracted to it by its light.”

    I love the word “Grace”.

    unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification b : a virtue coming from God c : a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine grace

    a charming or attractive trait or characteristic b : a pleasing appearance or effect : charm c : ease and suppleness of movement or bearing

    a musical trill, turn, or appoggiatura

    Hooked… “I really don’t know why I am telling you all of this. Maybe it’s because I know you will understand.”

    Loud and clear :)

    Betsy…that video of My Hands has me hypnotized…just wow.

    SF, “has nothing to do with any particular religion or beliefs, but in what we see and love and believe to be the inherent goodness & beauty in the world around us. That is what I believe having a certain level of “Spiritual Evolution” means. David is in a very high Spiritual Plane and I believe he would be there even if he were not deeply religious. ”

    I truly believe this to be true. When Jeff was asked why David is the way he is his response was “he came that way” I believe he did.

    Trying to catch up on everything David as I have been helping care for In-Laws this past week. (FIL had more cancer surgery.)

    SB, Thank you for this article. It helps me understand what I have been feeling as of late.

    I have been very sad ever since the tour dates were announced and I realized that I will not be able to see David perform at any of these locations. The closest to me is Beaver Creek and that is 1000 miles away. As I started to write a post for my blog about this situation, David’s cover of A Thousand Miles kept running through my head. I decided that I had to re-write the lyrics to this song.

    In my intro to this post, I wrote this:
    “But as any true fan of David knows, after you have seen and heard David perform live, there is no possible way that you can exist without hearing him live again, and again, and again. And it doesn’t matter what he is singing, it just matters that he IS singing. Once David’s voice has been allowed to enter your mind, body, and soul, there is no turning back. Nothing can be substituted for the immense euphoria that you experience when you feel his music. To me, Christmas music sung by David is the ultimate in this feel-good euphoria. I could listen to David sing only Christmas music for the rest of my life and I would be completely content.”

    Although I wrote this two weeks ago, I didn’t get around to publishing this until last week. It seems to fit in with what everyone here is asking; Why do some of us “get” him and need to hear him more than others? After reading your post, I don’t feel as insane as I did.

    Djafan, thanks for acknowledging my comment! Another idea would be to add David’s tour in a casual tweet to another artist you may follow…. I sent one to Selena Gomez’s fans, Demi Lovato, Justin B…..Another David fan sent a tweet to MasterclassLady, Pat Marino (who by the way did not know David was touring….)

    This is profound. It needs no further discussion or explanation and culminates in a single truth “…the beauty of his voice.”

    Dear Angelica and Sandybeaches

    Thanks so much for deciphering. I appreciate your comments when my thoughts slip and slide around like spaghetti. And thanks for the Wordsworth: “…but this service, (to endeavor to produce or enlarge this capability) excellent at all times, is especially so at the present day.” I agree. This is kind and encouraging to those of us who wonder if “it is worth it”. We cheer for DA. But also, blogs like yours encourage even the rest of us to attempt to hold up our little light bulbs of illumination.

    I appreciate all of you. ^_^

    always

  65. SandyBeaches said

    Bluesky.

    Just like you my thoughts slip and slide around like spaghetti but he has been too impressive to me to continue wondering about him any longer.
    I am resigned to the way things are as unusual as they seem to be sometimes.

    As a youth I spent many years studying music and taking part in performing even in the university years. But, my father was the real musician in the family while I tried to keep up with it all. During the years following that time I have appreciated and enjoyed the finer musicians but not until I discovered David for myself has my love for music been in the perfect place. I am truly grateful to David for that and I continue to learn from him.

    Sometimes I wonder about it all but when David appears on stage my thoughts are washed away. He continues to confirm my passion for his voice and for his stage presence. I appreciate and enjoy many other musicians but I do have my favorites on a short list!

    I wonder if it’s time to start saying SF’s travel prayer. It’s 14 hours ahead in Japan,meaning it is 1:30 p.m. Oct 11 there now. It takes 11hrs to get there (direct) flights usually stop along the way.
    Performance is Oct 15.(which would be Oct 14 here) Since we haven’t heard from David, I wonder if he’s traveling there now.
    I’ll say a little prayer now for a safe trip.

    Young David on Jenny Jones with Interview!!!

  68. Amb4DA said

    Hey guys…late night ODD’n

    First…Sign me up, PLEASE, for that list of 30! …probably kill me…but what a way….ya know.

    Love the graphics…David the Puzzle, the Rubik’s cube.

    SB–”Heavy, Deep n’ Real”, man. :) Teasing u…a thoughtful article, I have to read a few more times.
    I know what you mean…I roll it over and over and over in my mind, knowing I’ll never, ever put my finger on it entirely, and that’s the magic…but you do a good job at trying to at least crack the “science” of it. Reminds me, one night when I couldn’t sleep & had talk radio on & the showhost was talking about a jazz great he thought had died. He started talking about the power of music, and that he considered music to be our most powerful tool of communication. I naturally thought of David, his musical power to “those of us that hear and feel it”, and also his awareness, at such a young age, of how music has that power to communicate and make people feel.
    Funny to come here and see you speak of SN at Motab last year… had watched Motab Glad Tidings before coming online & had just emailed this to a DA pal about SN: “Just listened (and listened, and lisssstened) to Glad Tidings…Silent Night in rotation….I swear he makes a light go off in my heart when he sings. SN was my absolute favorite on CFTH. I always say he sang it like a reverent prayer,and EVERYtime (still!), it sends chills through me. I also love on Glad Tidings after he finishes SN, when he is just “coming out” of wherever he goes within to sing…and suddenly realizes he’s getting a standing ovation, and that little shy smile washes across his face, joyfully. And I love the whistles and cheers for him…he deserves that always. He’s a master at what he does with his rare and beautiful gift.” Just seemed like synchronicity coming here right after and seeing you also write about that performance.

    and this: “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. …Maybe in this stress filled generation of youth, there are…..fewer who are able to identify with brilliant performers.”

    Another thing that plagues me…this “brilliant performer” & Voice, is not “being heard” enough…and I just don’t get it. But…I AM glad I can hear & feel it. I feel lucky.

    Last to Suzy-Q: “I do have a husband to take care of. Luckily he loves David too.”
    Better take care of him…THAT is a (rare) keeper. Lucky girl. :)

  69. dakgal said

    I know –I know–it’s very late …..but I saw this over at FOD and just had to bring it over. I had seen this before, but for some reason I appreciate it more now. David is so relaxed–not fumbling or tripping over his words–just having fun with the crowd.. I wish he would do this more often. So if you saw this today–well –here’s the second time then. ;)

    Lovin’ the Jenny Jones video, Bebereader. Thanks for posting! He belts out that song, sounding so “not 11″ and then, in the interview, he answers her question about “what do you like to do” exactly as my daughters would have at 11. “I like to go on the computer” with a sort of nervous laugh.

    I saw David on Star Search and liked him, but didn’t really get a feel for who he was as a person at the time. If I had, I’m sure this ODD would’ve started much earlier.

    I remember that Jenny Jones episode! I had no idea how that VOICE would end up changing my life! I also remember thinking how good he was and where will I see him next…what a journey it’s been. The next 5-10 years are sure to be even better than the last! Can’t wait!

    Bebe #77…You know Bebe, I was just last night thinking the same thing about Idol…How 1st 4 years I didn’t watch at all, and didn’t get how everyone seemed so hooked on it. I might never have known the wonder of David Archuleta’s talent & music?! Can’t even fathom now!!
    Thankfully Season 5 I watched here and there, enough to get behind Daughtry, who I still like a lot, and one of the few other Idols who’s music I own …funny so different from David, but still a talent, and I like his music (though nowhere NEAR as much or in the same way as I do David’s.) Season 6 I finally decided to start from the beginning, watching from auditions on…started to get hooked. Thank Goodness!!
    But not until Season 7 did I glue myself to every moment, at the same time becoming “unglued” by one stunning young singer. I really did just think to myself last night, while watching Glad Tidings…I’m so grateful something made me tune into Idol in time, and become enough of a fan of the show to stay, in order to find David and his music.

    Djafan, we don’t know exactly when David will be leaving. Could be tomorrow or Thursday. Or he could be on his way right now, since he may need to get there earlier in order to rehearse with the local musicians/band the organizers have arranged for him. At least I think that’s what I read somewhere? So for those who wish to say a little prayer for David before he leaves, here you go.

    Lord,
    Please take care of David. Watch over him and 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 people who will love and support him unconditionally as we do and always will.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he’s weary and stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt and give him joy when he feels sad.
    Keep him always in your protective arms during this time on his journey to Okinawa, Japan.
    Keep David and and his voice healthy & strong as he continues to fulfill his Destiny.
    May he continue to encounter goodwill and happiness wherever his life’s journey takes him.
    And please Lord, give us the wisdom to do right by David always.
    Help us in the way we support him so that it is always in his best interests.
    Though we may be unworthy, we humbly pray.
    Amen

    Dear David, sending you our best wishes for an uneventful & easy flight to Japan. Thank you for all you do and for who you are.
    Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always!
    Please stay safe & take care!

    planning for Salt Lake and Beaver Creek. Also registered for Motab, since it is the weekend prior to David’s concert. It sounds like many here are going to the East concerts.(except for Tawna,Jan11 and Dayzee) Hope they all sell out!

    Thanks, Silverfox, for bringing back great memories from the KC concert! That’s where I was hoping he would come back to again, it was so beautiful. I was sitting in the 2nd row next to KathyH, and we were so in awe of him! It’s only about 10 min from where I live and when going home out I-70west with the snow and the “pinkish” cast the snow sometimes makes, it made the whole evening just perfect! Even tho it wasn’t a complete sellout, there was about 100 at the VIP and the whole thing was something never to be forgotten! Every concert I go to there is such good memories, no wonder I can’t get enough of his singing and want to go to the next one and the next one! I need to win the lottery, so I can follow him around! haha
    Also, love the prayer for David. I always say a little prayer for him, especially when he travels, but I love the longer one that covers all the bases.

    So many beautiful comments…wish I could quote you all! I guess I’ll just quote “the man” who tweeted tonight:

    “Been working on music today, and feel pretty good about what came out of it!” (Love hearing those words!)

    SF, thanks for the prayer.
