DAVID ARCHULETA

David Archuleta ~ Play by Play Live and Unplugged

Posted by Angelica on Friday, November 18, 2011

By Skydancer/Staff Writer

I have an ODD ritual during my work week. I like to have lunch with David. We have a special place we go, sitting outside under a nice big shade tree during these lovely fall days. OK, so sometimes it’s a small parking lot shaded by a tree and a small area of grass to sit on, across the street from my building. But David sings to me, as I eat my lunch. We are alone. ♥  Occasionally during inclement weather, we sit in my car. Whatever. It’s a wonderful break during my day to have the opportunity to De-stress, and feed my ODD and David’s voice can take me away, better than any Calgon bath ever could.

Anyway, last Saturday I parked the car, reached for David, but he was nowhere to be found. DANG IT! I checked around for his Cds. Nope, what the heck? Oh yeah, took them out when I was cleaning the car..dang it again. Disappointed, I unwrapped my sandwich and turned on the radio… and was quickly reminded that it was Saturday and college football rules the airwaves.

I halfway listened for a minute, grumbling under my breath… the 2 announcers were getting pretty fired up over a bad call. As excitement and tension built in their voices, such detail of every play and its setup, a thought occurred to me…these people “ain’t got nothin'” on David’s fans! Spend a Saturday night in “Unplugged” at The Voice, and we’ll show you some real in-depth analysis! And as I laughed out loud at the thought, my mind wandered off to a place where only my state of ODD could take me…and to a David concert…somewhere….

Pre-concert interview with the local press:

David, welcome to our town!

Aww, thanks. Happy to be here.

David, tell us, how does it feel to be quarterbacking your own team in 2011?

Feels great, thanks!

Any regrets?

Not at all… it was time to move on as a free agent. I have some very talented musicians on my team now.

I’m sure they love playing for you David, who wouldn’t??

Aw, thank you.

Great haircut David, lookin’ good buddy!

Well, I used a little gel….

David, your fans say you have the best hands in the business…. but that’s not my question. (blush) do you plan your  killer “moves” ahead of time?

Huh? What moves?

BWAHAHA! (hes joking  right?)

Oh, HA! Well, I just like to sing you know. I guess when I really get into a song, I may make a few subtle moves here and there. I don’t know. It just kind of happens I guess.

You’ve got a stadium full of fans out there David. There’s lots of ‘marry me David!’ signs around. Any chance we’ll see you throw out that killer look to someone tonight? See your future in a beautiful face?

I’m concentrating on music right now…but you never know. I guess it could happen…well, have to go now…it’s time to sing.

Have a great concert David. By the way…you are drop dead gorgeous.

Who…me?

Yes David…you!♥

Later, in the announcer’s booth, two fans broadcasting the event:

Hey guys! We’re coming to you LIVE on radio station ODD 101 AM on your dial, sharing my booth with a new fan… first concert. Are you excited Betty?
EEEEP! OK, yeah well. Betty’s ready! And here we go!! “Archies ARE YOU READY FOR A CONCERRRRT!??”

The team is coming out on the stage…on the stage now… and the packed stadium is screaming so loud!

They are chanting now, David!! David!! David!! Oh man, the lights are out! More screaming…the band is playing his intro…and hereheCOMES!EEEK! Pink open shirt, thin white T tucked into jeans, belt, dark comfy shoes (hey, its my article) GAH! I mean who looks like that? Look at that huge smile, those eyes, that hair! that strut!…oh, sorry. Calling the first play now, looks like he’s opening with TMH! That’s a crowd pleaser, and it gets him pumped! Look at that finger point, oops…lost a fan on that one! haha and the one behind her and the one behind that one! I think they call that the the domino effect. Betty, can you believe that energy!?

Ladies and gentlemen, can you believe that VOICE! OK, what play is coming next? TOSOD! He’s swinging those arms all over the place..ooh, a quick back-step, crazy motion to his head, a turn, diggin in…wait for it.. GAHHHH!! Where was I? We are going right into the second play. He’s looking to cover more ground.. now…1stDOWN! 2ndDOWN! 3rdDOWN! 4thDOW…OWOWWN! ♫ MJ hop! The crowd is singing along with him. OK, get ready for it. Here comes a signature Archuleta play. ARHHHHHG!!!! Yes!! Did you see how high those kicks were people??!!!! Huh? What? Time out? Fans are asking…OK, seems the Archies have requested an instant replay on that move folks…Whoa!

And it’s Elevator now…going up, down, pointing… he’s added a lot to this one. He is amazing. We need some crowd participation for this one and he is gonna ask for it people! Is the crowd with him?? Of course they are! bwaaaaah! Just kidding folks. Woo hoo!!! They are doing their part! What a great crowd!! Wait, there has been a whistle blown and flag. What the random? Security is checking the crowd down in the front rows. Seems there was some sideline fan activity. Ahh ok, lets hear the call…”Chair Scooting.” Turns out to have been a good move, no penalty!! Oh these fans here tonight are too clever. Betty!? Whats that? Eeeeeep? Yeah, yeah, I agree. Jump in any time Betty… OK, David has called a 5 second time out for a drink of water. What is coming next, GGTT…would you look at that shoulder action! I can’t take it, and what’s this? Sending out an SOS?? How brilliant was that!! The man does cover songs like no one else in the business! “YOU OWN THAT SONG NOW DAVID!” Oops, ‘scuse me. Forgot I had a mic.

Now what? Oooooh did you see that hand pump? OH MY, he is in total control tonight everyone! Locked down that move. He’s feelin’ it. He is in the zone!! Betty, you’re drooling a little bit girlfriend. Here, have a bib. Whew, he’s sweating. Looks like he is slowing things down to introduce the team. Good strategy. Mark is covering him on keyboard…yea Mark! Ben’s backing him up on on bass..yea Ben! And Steven is masterful on those drums…yea Steven! Appears to be a rotating position for the guitar player. Don’t recognize this guy, but he’s doin’ a great job for our quarterback tonight. OH MY GOSH! He pulled off a, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! a a a a a a DANCE move, was that? was it? what was it?? It was amazing that’s what it was!! I knew he would have some trick up his sleeve, the man is on fire tonight! That was the best moment of this whole night! He has scored some amazing plays but that may just be the highlight of the evening for me! He winds it down and finishes with a fist pump to the beat! Awesome! David is awesome! No doubt he’s the boss on that stage. Oh My, he is singing Heaven now. Fans can’t hold back their love. They are all on their feet now. We had 14 amazing plays, and its all over now, ending with his signature CRUSH, FTW!

So Betty how was your first live concert, LIVE with David Archuleta?
Betty? uh…Betty?…ruh roh. HA! ♫ ♪ Welcome tooooo yourrrrrrrrrr life! ♪ ♪ ♫

    Your post is so funny, Skydancer! Loved it all, especially when I got to “chair scooting”!! I could just picture it since I had the fun to be part of it in AZ! I do love football and this was a good “play by play” description! I have to say that I love David more than football and would much rather see a game of “Live with David Archuleta” any day, any time! Oh, those moves, those special steps, those songs, that voice!!!!! David, you’re so dang talented!!! You totally take the place of 11 guys on the field…er stage!!!!

    Love this, Skydancer! I love my football and I love the take you did on David’s “plays”! Great coverage … hehehe :)

  9. Angelica said

    TOfan, I replaced my name with Sky’s in your complimentary comment. Hope you don’t mind. ;) This was all the work of her brain on ODD and it shows off her comedic brilliance we usually only get in the comments. So glad she has joined our staff of writers. Standing O from me also!

  10. skydancer1x said

    Angelica, there isn’t a day that goes by, since I have been coming to the Voice, that you haven’t put a smile on my face or had me crying, or in hysterical laughter.All of you. writers!♥
    ,Jans, Marylee, Fi, Ascphil,Trudy,Maggie,Tofan,Bluebird, thanks for sending me off to work this morning with a smile on my “heart”, just as you put a smile on my face everyday. I just think finding ourselves experiencing what we call ODD, at this point of our lives to be wonderous,beautiful, and completely and joyously funny! David is such a special gift.to us all♥

    Roaring cheers for Sky! I felt like I was sitting on the 50 yd line, watching our MVP wow everyone in the stands! Give the game ball to Sky!

  12. bebereader said

    Skyyyyyyyyy,

    I read your hilarious article five times and am going in for a sixth. It’s so full of win that I just can’t get enough. You make me laugh and I love you for it. Your sense of humor coupled with your ODD is such a lethal combination; I will just have to prepare myself for your future writings. ;)

    Favorite line: “Well, I used a little gel….” I could hear David saying that line! LOL

  13. angelofdja said

    “Huh? What moves?” Ha! Ha! Sky, you crack me up! I can seriously hear him saying that!
    You can’t imagine how much I was needing this humorous article. You have “ticked all the boxes” in accomplishing what I couldn’t seem to muster; a big ole’ belly laugh! Thanks! This is a truly fun read that I plan on returning to…often!

  14. MT said

    Sky,

    Congrats on your first article!! :)

    ♫ Take me out to the ballgameeeee ♫ … , now this is my kind of game. And your article scored a TOUCHDOWN!! I love your sense of humor and this article is such fun! Win Win Win!!

    This>> “Any chance we’ll see you throw out that killer look to someone tonight?” <<< hahha LOVE THAT!! Cuz you know he always does! Imagining his reaction if someone actually asked him that has me LOL.

    Loved the whole thing, start to finish. Great article!

    I have a little story to tell about something that happened today. It’s still on my mind, and I thought you guys would like it. I certainly do. :)
    I work in a store, and this time of year we always have the Salvation Army collecting money just outside our doors.
    Today we had a new bell ringer. Just a young, poor kid wearing a hoodie. And I hope he comes back. Because he decided to sing all day long. He has an amazing voice (shockingly good) – very much like a young Luther Vandross. It was very cold and windy, but he sang Christmas carols all day long. Every time the door opened I could hear him. And every time someone dropped money into the kettle, he stopped singing and said “Bless you”
    A very old lady came in the store, pushed by her son in her wheelchair and said to me “His voice is so calming, it just makes me feel good.”
    My little story for the day.

    “Gold is a rock. Money is paper. But trials are what make us who we are.”

    Sky, I have a real, I-don’t-care-one-bit-for-football play by plays, but this had me rolling with laughter. This kind of play-by-play I can take over and over. Good job, girlfriend!! ;) I’m kind of likin’ the tag.. ‘We don’t need no stinkin football’. No we don’t…we’ve got David! Gimme a D- A -V- I -D, goooooo DAVID!
    Thanks for this fun time.

    Djafan–when I saw that pic #19 this morning before I went to work, I nearly passed out. Then I had to seriously study it. I need someone explain to me the incredible look in David’s eyes. I don’t recall ever seeing this look before. I feel he is in a very serious learning and listening moment with Mannheim Steamroller. He is just not in this world at that moment, imho. This has got to be on the top of my list of favorite photos. ♥♥ *sigh & hand to heart*

    Tawna

  24. betsy said

    Dja, I was wondering about that as well. And according to Twitter, he just dropped into the IC office with his arms full of pizzas. :)
    He is such a good and thoughtful man.
    Love him.

  25. MT said

    19. Dja, good grief!

    OK now. hmmmm

    Question … With THAT voice and THAT face now, what’s he gonna be like in 5 years? Can you even imagine?

  26. skydancer1x said

    Tawna, .”He is just not in this world at that moment, imho.” no, no, he isn’t , you are right.The picture has me totally mesmerized…its beautiful.and his face, those eyes. He is so..fascinating.

    MT “Question … With THAT voice and THAT face now, what’s he gonna be like in 5 years? Can you even imagine?”
    No MT, can’t even!

    Looks like I have alot of catching up to do on these last 2 threads. Scrolled through and took a gander at pics though.

    This is getting out of hand and he needs to stop now.

    David’s new vlog!

  36. I really enjoyed the vlog, he makes you laugh right with him and doesn’t he stare right into your eyes?

    Sky, that was a most unique concert/game experience. So much fun!!

    “Shu Yee from Archuleta Avenue Malaysia

    Sandy – John handed the bracelets you sent for me to take to Singapore to be shared with all the Archies! Well, as you know … we didn’t make it to Singapore:-(( We are planning to have a gathering on the first weekend of December and hopefully there will be a good turn out. We can give out the bracelets and have a photo session! I will reserve some for the Singapore and Pilipino Archhies too! Will update you with photos!

    By the way, the bracelets are awesome! thank you so much!!! ”

    It is nice to make a connetction with the fans who share in the same journey with David.

    Regarding the pic in #19, David has such an expressive face; many times we refer to him as The man of a thousand faces’, Movie producers and talent scouts would have a goldmine in him if they would start casting him in movie roles. Of course it would have to be a role to David’s liking. He has mentioned various times that he would like to get into acting so this might not be too far-fetched.

    Okay so I got curious about Phil’s BBQ since David raved about it. Here, have a menu: http://www.philsbbq.net/bbq-menu.html

    SB, That was a lovely thing to do, and I know they really appreciate it. It’s so nice that David’s fans are willing to share and to reach out to each other in so many ways.

    That vlog … smiley, distracted, early morning David. You can’t help laughing with him. His vlogs never fail to make me smile. And what a sweetheart, his day off he spends going to the IC offices. ♥

  39. Blueberry Ice said

    Sky; You have such a wonderful eye for details …. just loved every riveting word! Will you be going to any MKOC shows because if not, you need to go in my place to capture and report back every glorious, heartfelt, tantalizing play-by-play!

    Djafan, Abrra; Pic # 19 and videos # 30 … no wonder I’m totally useless … it’s your guys fault, hehe (… going back for another look!)

    SB; It’s pretty neat to see how far your bracelet’s have traveled! Wouldn’t it be cool to know if any of the European fans have gotten it?

    Then there’s David’s vlog. It never fails how he makes me smile and how good he is for me to maintain a happy heart. Forget the vitamins, lol, I’ll take a daily dose of “D” any day!

    Bebe; You’re so right about David being “the man of thousand faces”. Sometimes I wonder if he is the same person or not. Amazing how he can “morph” into a different expression or look a different age even in the same series of photo’s taken in one moment.

  40. Blueberry Ice said

    MT; Just saw your comment about David’s vlog … I guess we both have the same smiley thoughts! :)

  41. bebereader said

    SandyBeaches,

    Your bracelets are reaching far and wide! Kudos to you for your efforts on David’s behalf.

    Blueberry Ice,

    How can one person have so many different expressions? The person on today’s vlog does not look to me like the same one who who sang at Pandora’s Ice Show. Furthermore, the person who sang at MoTab looks like neither of them! Okay I’ve officially gone crazy. LOL

    Just got home and that vlog!! Thank you, David♥ I really needed that tonite. It is so funny, the stuff that happens when he makes his vlogs There is always something …a bug flying at him an airplane flying overhead,, a cat catching his view, a squirrel,a stuffed gorilla in a closet.,a sister being violent with her pumpkin,a keyboard crashing to the floor and on and on.. He is so dang funny! I was laughing so hard when the noises started with the lawnmower! hahaha! What a joy he is!♥

    SB♥ so cool about the bracelets being received overseas. Those bracelets may be just about the best idea ever!

    Blueberry Ice ok I will go! hahaha. Looking for a delicious recap from you btw. I love how you express yourself, always have♥

  48. bluesky said

    #30 Abrra – Falling Stars vid. Especially 3.00 to the end.

    Dear David:

    You know, there are times when I dislike watching you sing. When I see you struggle with the notes and I know (I imagine that I know) that you are cringing inside as they can’t help but just come out wrong sometimes. That is life. Or flying fatigue. Or the time of day. Or whatever. It just happens sometimes. To all of us: we can’t always say what it its that we want to say. We can’t always communicate what we hear inside. Sometimes the vessel that delivers is just less than the might of sound it would convey.

    So sometimes it hurts me to watch you struggle. I don’t like it. Would I change that if I could? Probably. Which is why God won’t let me. Not with you, not with others that I love. Not a tiny bit. *sigh*

    Guess God must feel that you are able to handle it. And rise. Guess sometimes we feel Him with us even more when the notes we expect and are used to fail us, and we have to search for new ones. Even God never repeats a sunset. And some are blanked with clouds of storm. Searching for light at such times only seems to make that light more dear. Listening can hold new import when sound is pressed from both struggle and faith. At such times my “repertoire” had better include a few steps into the unknown.

    I thank you for the music you make when things are less than perfect. I thank you for each note. For the possibilities each one extends as part of the experience of the wholeness and brilliance of life.

    Acceptance of it all and willingness to extend – come what may – had better become “my kind of perfect”

    48.Bluesky, what you wrote is so beautiful. You just made me cry.♥

  50. Abrra said

    Bluesky
    I feel the same way when I hear David strain to make a note. You expressed it so well. Wish you had sent it in as an article Haha!

    Thank you for your insight and wisdom on all things David.

    Abrra

  51. bluesky said

    49. Skydancer.. I really liked your article. Kudos to you.. do many more!!

    50. Abrra.. You are one of the best. ^_ ^ I appreciate your kindness. I appreciate feeling welcome in your “house”.

  52. tawna21 said

    Goodness, Bluesky, #48 is beautiful. I’ve always felt like I’m the only one who ‘cringes’ when a David song isn’t perfect. When there’s a missed note or a struggle, for whatever reason, that causes a skip in my heart. Now I know that I’m not alone. You said it so well. Thank you.♥♥

    Sky—I’m late on commenting on your hoot-icious ( new word) article.

    I really enjoyed your play by play commentary and had several great laughs—but my fav–is when the fans drew a penalty flag for ” chair scooting”. :P

    WE all know there is no defense when David takes the field (stage), with all his smiles, charm, charisma, moves and of course that voice.

    So to anybody that thinks there is a way not to get gobsmacked, I suggest they drop back fifteen yards and dig a trench!! ;)

    Bluesky, your words flow from somewhere that remind me of how David sings live. Someplace deep is brought to the surface for us to enjoy. Thanks so much for posting here so I can reap the benefits of both your writings and all things David!

    Bluesky, you have me in tears. The love for David flows off the screen with every word. I watched every video and I’m in awe of his courage and commitment to his performances. But you have put into words the admiration, respect and unconditional love we all have for David. Thank you.

    Bluesky #48,

    What a beautiful comment! When I read these words, “I thank you for the music you make when things are less than perfect. I thank you for each note.”

    it brought to mind a verse from my favorite poet, Theodore Roethke:

    “I’ll make a broken music or I’ll die.”

    I think of all the times he’s gone on when sick, or on AI when he forgot his words and just nailed it the next time. Or when he sometimes doesn’t do a perfect performance of a song but he just laughs and keeps on going. He has the courage to keep putting one foot in front of the other. For the true artist, perfection is optional, but not doing what you love is unthinkable.

  66. Well you are all so good with your thoughts and prayers that I thought that I would ask for a little help from you in that way. A young girl about 6 hours away from me just wrote that she had taken in a young labrador retriever who was obviously abandoned. He is very small and hungry. She was told that he could stay in her house until he got into the garbage and cut his tongue then he was put out. The local vets are helping in that regard but the SPCA has no room for him. She has put up a tent in the very cold night and she is staying there with him but she is desperate. No one has responded to her call for assistance and I just heard about it and it is very late. Well. prayers would definately help tonight…she does work so I don’t know what will happen to him when she is gone.

    SB

  67. Angelica said

    I will say a prayer for the little dog, SB. Maybe tomorrow will bring some help.

  68. bebereader said

    SB,

    So sorry about this poor young lab. I don’t know how anyone can abandon an animal! I hope he makes it through the night. All I can do from this end is offer prayers that someone responds and that he gets the help that he needs!

    Awesome 1st interview today for David !
    Looks like the Tuesday interviews will happen, as listed in the announcement…..I just got 2 emails from our local FOX station here in San Antonio, saying that David’s interview here is scheduled for 7:10 a.m. (we’re on central time), so David will begin all his inteviews just after 6 a.m. in Utah—-wow! What an exciting time this is! To be a David fan is like receiving a special blessing every day!

  74. MT said

    Sky,
    Before this wonderful article disappears, I have to comment on one more thing.

    “As excitement and tension built in their voices, such detail of every play and its setup, a thought occurred to me…these people “ain’t got nothin’” on David’s fans! Spend a Saturday night in “Unplugged” at The Voice, and we’ll show you some real in-depth analysis!”

    So true, so true. haha And we do have some fun!

    Now … hoping we get some vids from todays interviews. :)

    Ahhh Thanks to JR, who always comes through, here’s this morning’s Utah interview on youtube:

    Thanks Bebe & JR,

    This was a great interview. I love seeing him relaxed and laughing, having a good time with it. And he’s looking very nice, too!

    I’m glad they talked about the Tour, also. I hope they ask him about upcoming things in all of the interviews. I know it’s for GCT, but a little promo for the tour wouldn’t is nice too.

    Her David wall is very impressive. I guess I am not the only “older” fan who has a shrine ? ;) She selected many of the same pictures of David that most of us have. Imagine her reading his book and still being inspired by someone so young. Makes the heart smile.

    In Unplugged the topic often goes to age. Mainly because we stress over how we wish we would be around for all of David’s career milestones. Edith has the best attitude right now. I wonder if when she got home she began to rethink living past the next 3 years to age 100. Meeting David in person only makes you want more David.

    The last time I saw his “big dimple smile” was with Alison from A Fine Frenzy. He is surely tickled by Edith.

    David Archuleta home for holidays, signing books
    November 21st, 2011 @ 6:09pm

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    SALT LAKE CITY — David Archuelta has come home for the holidays and is taking time to sign some autographs for his hometown fans. Last Christmas, Archuleta was the guest performer for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s Christmas concerts.

    This year the DVD and CD of the performance are available and he will be at Deseret Book’s downtown store following the annual lighting of Temple Square.

    “I don’t think there’s anything like Christmas music, really, because it’s something that so many people are willing to listen to and take in,” Archuelta said. “They all the feeling that they feel to come in and it’s just in the air. It’s just everywhere and I love that.”

    Archuleta begins his own national Christmas concert tour in December. He will perform for the first time in Cedar City Dec. 10 and at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City Dec. 19.

    On Nov. 25, Archuleta will be signing books at the downtown Desered Book location at 6:30 p.m., immediately after the opening of a new window display at the store.

    Today’s videos are so fun…so much smiling, laughing, and big dimples. Oh to be Edith–or the interviewer who got the autographed paper!!! Lucky day for them. :) He is so relaxed in all the vids and pics. I love it!

    I couldn’t get to today’s signing in Orem….too much going on at work and home. *sad face*

    I got my autographed cd’s, that I ordered from Deseret Book, today. *happy face* I swear my USPS delivery lady has it out for me….the cd’s sat at the Post Office for 2 weeks…she never left me a notice that I needed to pick them up down there….I started tracking them last night, and when I went down to get them this morning, they told me they would have been sent back tomorrow…ugh….the neighbors all complain about her also, so I know it’s not just me. Oh well, I have them now. **more smiles**

    SB…any word on the puppy? We had someone drop a black bunny off around our place. It was obvious it was someone’s pet because it was very tame. When cold weather started to come, my husband and son caught it and took it to a neighbor’s home. She raises rabbits, so she took it in. We bought a couple of bags of pellets for it to thank her for taking it in. I couldn’t stand to see it try to struggle thru the winter on it’s own. We have wild rabbits around, but they know what it’s all about so I don’t worry about them. Why do people treat animals badly?

    @SunnyHilden Sunny Hilden
    @Meganloves2lol Rehearsals have been festive – pop songs, Christmas songs, classic songs, new songs – heavenly!

  93. Edith meeting and spending time with David was amazing. No more should anyone over 40 feel that they are too old to be a fan. She has done so much to bridge the gap that has caused controversy in the past. He is a singer for all ages as only the good ones are.

    I have one more story for tonight…

    Thank you for asking about the lonely lost dog and what happened on the very cold night last night. Heidijoy wrote and asked me if I had any news and this is what I wrote to her…

    ” I have been working with the young girl (19 or 20) on the phone. We live 6 hours from her. She lives in the most easterly part of the province where the atlantic ocean crashes on to her shores. They are in a coal mining town and the living is tough. The young yellow lab, initially walked onto their front doorstep looking cold and dirty and of course hungry. She feels that he was dropped off to find a home, such cruelty. He was hungry and got into the garbage can. He cut his tongue and had blood all over him and all over the kitchen. Her parents were very angry and didn’t want him in the house. She got him to the vets and he helped her out, then she went home and they would not allow her in the door with him. She took a small tent outside for the weekend and then today she had to go to work so she was frantic thinking that she would have to put him out by himself. Well, she slept with him in her car last night but ended driving to her sisters. to her sisters. I spoke with the older sister and she has allowed him to stay there until a man who rescues animals and keeps them on his 300 acre farm, arrives tomorrow. Well the dog is so attached to her and she will be sad to see him go.

    The young girl had to defend herself to her friends because she bothered at all when he could have just been put to sleep. I wrote to her and told her what a wonderful thing she had done although she was possibly risking her own health in the cold and she could have lost her job. I told her that she would be rewarded sometime for all that she does and she will gain friends who are like herself as time goes by. I was of course thinking about how we have all come together. I praised her and encouraged her not to ever be discouraged from helping someone or animal. She bought him toys and he keeps them close to him

    David would be very impressed with her efforts..”

  94. I definately blame any typos on MY iphone…gotta get it fixed!

  95. bebereader said

    SandyBeaches, Thanks for the update on the pup. Hope we get another one from you saying that she kept the dog or at least that the dog is living on the 300 acre farm of the dog rescuer. You gave her good encouragement, SB, that it’s never wrong to help an animal or someone in need. :)

    SB,

    Thanks for the update on the puppy. I have been thinking about him off and on all day, wondering if he got the help he needed. So glad to hear he will. That was a cardinal act of mercy the young woman gave at the loss of her own comfort. There is a special place in heaven, I think, for people who rescue animals, and a special place in hell for those who abuse them. It was wonderful of you to be there for her and show you cared.

  97. tawna21 said

  98. MT said

    Tawna,
    LOL I hadn’t thought of it before, but perhaps that’s why they ask him to sign their arms. Not just for the signature, but so he has to hold on to them for a while.

    *still smiling about him meeting Edith* That has to be the cutest, sweetest thing ever and I am so happy for her. I hope he sees her at the concert and waves to her in the audience. I don’t doubt he’ll remember her.

    SB, I’m so glad there will be a happy outcome for the puppy.

    There is such a soothing softness about David that is so incredibly yummy, in his speaking voice,his smile,his eyes.. . It is so comforting, it just oozes out of his every pore.What a special human being you are David . He just melts
    you into butter and leaves you defenseless with his charming self! Those of you going to any Utah shows, keep your eye out for Edith♥something tells me, where David is concerned, she still has enough energy to do some chair scooting.

  116. I just wish that in all of these lovely pre Christmas interviews that they would have asked David questions that pertained more to the MoTab concert series because the American idol part of his life is no longer interesting or relevant especially now. AI is so cheesy compared to talking about the contents of the Glad Tidings Christmas CD and DVD and what went on throughout the days of the concerts. The TV interviewers just can’t let it go. They did not seem to have done their homework because this was all about promoting David now and the MoTabs music. There really is nothing impressive about American idol other than that is where he had his start. I felt sorry that Mack Wilberg was asked so little. It was a fabulous set of performances and it could have been outstanding in the discussions about what this means to his future…I grimace when I hear American Idol and The Mormon Tabernacle Choir talked about in the same sentence. David was classy in the performances and that should have carried over especially for him.

    42-10 David Archuleta & Mack Wilberg @ FOX6 Good Day Alabama (Media Blitz, 22 Nov 2011)

  118. djafan said

    I love the Alabama interview. The interviewers comment when David said “Los Pastores A Belen” “beautiful hearing you say it, I can just imagine what it sounds like” lol I detect a fan girl there.

    SB, I hear you but I don’t know when the AI references will stop, will they ever? Probably not, it’s how he was introduced to the world. Eventually my hope is that it will be a mere mention.

    Mack doesn’t seem to be a man of many words. I would have preferred the other gentlemen who was interviewed during the Motab event. He was so enthusiastic and excited about David and his performances. Mack even then not so much. Not saying that he wasn’t but he doesn’t seem comfortable with these interviews.

  119. skydancer1x said

    I agree Dja.would have preferred the other gentleman, who was absolutely fired up about David during the interviews..why can’t I remember his name?Hate it when that happens.Mack is sort of a serious fellow..looks kinda grumpy out of his element.(no disrespect intended, just an observation)Especially sitting next to David! HA.

    Anyway, yes SB I agree.I guess if we have grown weary of the AI references, wonder how David must feel…gosh he has done so much since then.so much under that cute little belt of his over the past 4 years, gee.
    I will however always be grateful to AI for introducing David to us. How and when would we ever have gotten to know him otherwise? At least he got some fabulous exposure through that show.I don’t think they will ever stop talking about it until it goes off the air..especially on Fox,since Idol is probably still one of their top seasonal shows Its sure great to see all this promo today though.

Then an hour later I had become # 25 or so in line and the place was filling up. When David arrived there were long lines wrapped around every display. He walked in, gave us a wave and a smile and went right to work. No singing at the signing. Not even for the girl ahead of me who told him it was her birthday! He gave her a big grin and said “Well, happy birthday” He looked great as you can see.

    When I got home, my grandson asked “How was your day?” Haha. He would never understand how terrific my day was :)

    Abrra #121—THAT’S MY DAYZEE!!! (tan jacket). She texted me while she was there…dang work schedule just hasn’t let me be to any of these :( The top pic looks like she must have been floating on air (lol!) with it being taken above the crowd. I wonder what she said that created such smiles in all of them??

    Dja–Mac Christensen is the other guy…he’s the choir president, and also owns the Mr. Mac men’s wear retail chain (probably just here in Utah), so he’s more PR than Mack Wilberg. Mack W. is the one who did all the arrangements on the music, so that could be why they had him speaking with David. But, you’re right, he is a man of few words (but a lot of notes on a music sheet).

    I don’t recall seeing this interview being posted –but if it has exusa me. I like the way the guy is so loose and light with David which in turn makes David the same.

    Also on that site check out the video ” All your turkey questions , answered –David is in that too! About the third or fourth one down from the top. Cute!

    #100 Jans 11—I thought that was Ashley too-when I first saw the video–went back to have another look and got waylaid – my attention span sucks.

    Don.t know if this will bring up the actual video–but at least it’s a link. :roll:

    Hi Dayzee and Shawna!!!!

    Dayzee and Shawna! Congrats on your visit with David today. I want to know too what you said to make him and the lady listening smile so big, Dayzee. Cute grand-kids Shawna!

    Nice opening act and nice that he’s got one too. This tour, and he, is shaping up rather nicely from the looks of things. How does he grow hair that fast?

  140. jans11 said

    Great pictures, Dayzee and Shawna! Thanks to you Dayzee for your texting me at work and making the time go by faster and getting a mag signed for me! It was so cool to be talking to someone in Utah waiting in line to see David while I was doing hair in Kansas City! I was reading my texts to the ladies and they thought it was great. One lady wants me to ask David if he will visit them there at the nursing home…another one bit the dust!! lol She was singing along with him to Silent Night and Joy to the World! Very off tune, but also very sweet.

    Dayzee…I was there too. Wasn’t it just wonderful. I think he has grown up so much in the last year. Still has those sparkly eyes and I am always amazed at how dark his hair looks in person. I couldn’t believe all the people. It was a lovely afternoon and I am still smiling.

    I should be asleep but sleep doesn’t come easy after spending a few precious moments with David, now does it?
    Thanks for the comments about the picture I tweeted! Those kids ARE really my best friends, so Abs, you are so right! They are my daughters 3 kids, and she is expecting another boy in March! Such precious little ones! The boy, Tyler, is in school all day and not as much into “Grandma” as much as his two sisters are! Kate is going with me to the SLC concert with her 9 year old cousin and my hubby!! She is so excited! I posted another pic of all of us looking at David as he talks while he signs with the caption that they were mesmerized by him:) Kate (is 5) even told him her favorite song of his is Cat and the Mouse! He was so cute with them!! Brooke is the little one! She is 2, 3 when the new brother comes and Tyler is 7!!
    David looked so happy and especially glowy tonight:) I had him sign 3 CDs for these older ladies I visit each month. They are 92, 89, and 81 and they will be so surprised to see they’re autographed personally to them!! Can’t wait to see their faces!!! Might deliver them on Friday rather than wait till the 13th of Dec. to give them. I want them to have the whole month to enjoy it!!!
