I  had never heard Amy Grant’s I Need a Silent Night so I went and took a listen, it’s David’s song now.  Sorry Amy.

    Thanks for the new post Djafan. :) I am hoping we have a chance to hear the show somehow from Stroudsburg. They gave the speech last time no video, but we know what happens :)

  2. For those of you who want to get the full effect of David’s performance in Verona last night, you must go to “Soul David” and read HG’s recap. She captured every amazing, magnificent moment of David’s performance in Verona. She has said it all and we am most appreciative of her writing. We read while travelling from Verona to Stroudsburg and with tears of laughter and emotion. http://souldavid.wordpress.com

    The concert in Verona has surpassed ANY performance he has ever done. More to follow…

    Thanks SB,

    This is my favorite part of her recap;

    Why David is Already On a Mission, and Why We Need to Stop Thinking He’ll Eventually Do a Traditional One

    “The Little Drummer Boy.” Nuff said. Can I get a witness?

    If not, just listen to the lyrics:

    Mary nodded pa rum pum pum pum / The ox and lamb kept time pa rum pum pum pum / I played my drum for him pa rum pum pum pum / I played my best for him pa rum pum pum pum rum pum pum pum rum pum pum pum / Then he smiled at me pa rum pum pum pum

    Notice how these lyrics come after that powerful money note that entered straight into my heart like a fire-torched arrow as he raised his drumsticks triumphantly in the air: ME AND MY DRUUUUUUUUM!!!!

    And then he just let loose on the bass drum. And all I could think of was:

    Preach it, David! I feel you! And yes, He IS smiling at you, as we all are.

    So, this Mission talk? Let’s stop speculating. David is already on his mission! Anyone who heard his rendition of “The Little Drummer Boy” LIVE knows what I’m talking about.

    Tweeters in PA!!!

    Abrra,

    I can’t watch that without crying. He’s talking to us. I’m a dang mess and I haven’t even seen him yet. I’m in trouble.

  6. Abrra said

    Djafan

    I was just in the car listening to the mp3.Pure joy.

    I spoke to Betsy earlier she said David sings it in appreciation for his fans. I really think our fandom is a 2 way personal journey. He lifts us up and we, in turn, carry him along with us. I can’t explain it any other way. We need him as much as he needs us.

    Abrra

  7. Abrra…#6, no truer words have been spoken.

    Oh how I will need to have mp3s very soon…

    Off to the concert, talk to you all later!

    Hello all, the concert is over. Everybody must in an archustupor I know I am. Go through all these videos trying to absorb it all. I know everyone I’ve spoken say that not a single video do him justice. So if these videos have brought me to tears, what are the live performances going to do to me? I’m just so proud of what David has done and is doing. Now we wait to see what the night brings :)

    We’ll be adding more Stroudsburg videos as they are posted on youtube.

  30. There is a camaraderie amongst the fans growing by leaps and bounds as the tours go by.

    Once again we met friends this morning at breakfast and saw them off until we meet again.

    But it is funny (not funny actually) that we as in SF and myself are the last to leave, the last to close the door and wave good bye to everyone.

    Some of us met last evening at a restaurant that overlooked the backstage door where fans were gathering, where the little ones were waiting for an autograph.

    And the older ones who have been around for years,..haha…waited to thank him for these wonderful, inspirational and heart warming evenings in the concert halls.

    You remember the pictures perhaps of David in an Asia airport? Well that is how it was and it was great to see. His security saw him right to the bus door.

    After the pizzas were delivered to the bus and everyone was on board, David turned and waved as fans called out good bye. I loved it, the perfect send off to a wonderful four days.

    He told us that the tour was put together to thank his fans for their continued support and he repeated that a few times over.

    All four concerts were magnificent, but there was a certain magic in the air in Verona that I am taking away as my favorite memory…

    Soon to follow…David and The Little Drummer Boy…

    Just got home. I held in the tears till now. (mostly till now)
    This was the best weekend, best concert of my life. I sat in front of David at the vip and he sang Good Place/Let it Be 3 feet in front of me. My favorite song ever.
    Sobbing now.

  32. betsy said

    David did this for us.
    There was so much love from us to him and so much love from him to us it was palpable.
    He treated us like family. Hugs and all.

    Hello SandyBeaches, our on the spot reporter!

    Thank you for checking in with us when you can. You have no idea how much it is appreciated! We’re starved for details from the shows and you’re doing a great job satisfying our appetites.

    It makes me feel good to read that David’s sendoff back to the buses reminded you of pictures taken at the Asian airports where the fans showed so much love and respect plus security was close by.

    At the Westbury VIP I also heard David say that this tour was for us, all of his fans, for sticking by him all this time. (As if we would go anywhere else?) He’s so grateful for our loyalty, so humble regarding his success.

    The videos don’t do justice to a live performance of The Voice. I was at Westbury. I can see it. But we are all watching with admiration and anticipation of what he has in store for us, up his sleeves.

    Safe travels to SandyBeaches, SilverFox and to all our fan friends traveling home today.

  34. Hey Betsy…I enjoyed meeting you and sharing the table in Verona and being in the snow! Do weep tears of joy my friend…haha, now to lead by example…What did he say? Well I will answer my own question showing my mental state at the moment, haha. He said, I sing ‘The Other Side of Down’ to lift you up and then I next sang the more sad song ‘Wait’ that brought you down…and then he smiled!!

    SB

  35. djafan said

    SandyBeaches, Mushismas Gracias! Your words get that giddy anticipation all of fluttering.

    Betsy, When I first purchased The Other Side Of Down my granddaughter, 13 at the time, said let me listen first and I’ll tell you which ones your going to like the best. She picked TOSOD, Look Around, Who I Am and when she got to Good Place she told me this one is it, it is going to make you cry. She was so right. So needless to say when I saw the video of the VIP I fell apart. The last line is just to much. (((hugs)))

    9 days for me and counting!

    I think David could do stand up comedy. I love his story telling and This Christmas? What can I say? Scrumptious ♥

  36. djafan said

    David spotted at the airport. Love it when those that run into him tweet about it.

    A true fan of the fans

    December 04,2011

    Leon Lee has a chat with the remarkably down-to-earth pop idol David Archuleta.

    By Leon Lee

    On the night of May 21, 2008, America was perched on the edge of its seat as it waited for the next American Idol to be announced. Would it be the hard-rocking David Cook or the 16-year-old crooner David Archuleta? Most predicted Archuleta would triumph, so Ryan Seacrest reading out Cook’s name came as something of a shock. But far from being disappointed, Archuleta was thrilled just to be in the finale in the first place.

    “I like … experiences that exceed my expectations or other people’s expectations. One of them was being at the finale of American Idol,” says the soft-spoken pop singer. “I did not expect myself to be there and so to actually be there, live that moment and take it all in, I realised all the work that I did that brought me there.”

    Although he came in second, Archuleta’s likeability and humbleness, not to mention the musical talent displayed on the show, have led to a promising music career and won him a legion of die-hard fans.

    Fast-forward three years and three albums, the now 20-year-old shows none of the negative effects of being in the music industry and still retains his down-to-earth, boy-next-door charm. At times during his interview with Young Post, his attitude showed he’s still accepting his own celebrity.

    “I appreciate my fans so much. It means so much to me, all that they do. It’s so hard for me to understand how they are so passionate. I wonder, ‘What did I do that made them … so supportive?’ I certainly never thought, ‘What can I do to get people to become passionate fans?’” he says. “I just went about doing what I did. It makes me in awe just to think they would be so supportive, that they would follow what I do, they would listen to what I do, and be interested in the work that I do. I feel very blessed to have the group of fans that I have.”

    While Archuleta remains the same lovable and honest person from Murray, Utah, his music has matured. He shows a darker side on his newest single, Wait, included on the Asian Tour Edition of his third album The Other Side of Down.

    “Wait is a little different than the stuff that I’ve released lately. The last album that I did, it was more about trying to be positive and dorky. With Wait, it was more of an emotional song, a sadder song,” he explains. “It’s … almost like a dream. You imagine you see someone that’s no longer there, someone who left you. You want to keep them there but you realise they’re not there and they’re gone. It’s that sense of when you lose someone.”

    If there’s anyone that knows how to deal with a loss the right way, it’s Archuleta.

    Dja,
    Wow, you’re on a roll! Keep it coming!

    Love the interview. The part you bolded … ♥ Awww, David. ♥

    I love his banter and the part about Costco is so funny.

    Bebe, That video dancing with the little girls!! Just too adorable!!

    And I am still repeating that Silent Night with the snow. *sigh* Just so beautiful. (and of course the Fa La La La La one and the LDB. I think this is the first time I have had so many repeating. Usually it is one stand out from a concert. Not this time. It’s like Lays potato chips! haha, I can’t pick just one!

  39. MT said

    I can’t believe I left out “I Need A Silent Night” too.

    These songs are like Christmas presents to us that we have the joy of unwrapping over and over again. What sweet and precious gifts from David to us.

    Love that inteview in #37

    ““I appreciate my fans so much. It means so much to me, all that they do. It’s so hard for me to understand how they are so passionate.

    He feels blessed to have us as fans but

    Dear David,

    We are the ones who have been blessed. Truly.

  46. MT said

    Just as David feels he was given his beautiful voice for a reason, so maybe there is also a reason we are here and were given a passion for his voice.

    We are the ones who realize “who David is” and believe in “who he will be” and we are here to support him and hold him up, help him to continue, while his star slowly rises, so that he has no need to compromise while he works to get to that place where we know he belongs.

    Maybe that’s the “why” of why we are here.

  50. I have been dragging around two posters from the VIP now for days or so it seems. They won’t fit into anything because they are too long for everything…but I wouldn’t leave them behind despite my complaining. I am still at the airport in Newark for a few more hours it appears and the posters have a seat next to me! If anyone on the site would like one then I will mail the one and only one out to you. Oh and it was autographed right there at the VIP! Please let Djafan know if you wish it, she loves emails!!

    Djafan…I found bracelets I didn’t realize that I still had so I can send them out to you for the east coast concert goers! David saw that Stix was wearing one so he knows all about them…he didn’t complain about “The Nobody Sings It better” inscribed on it so I guess he has just given up being modest about his singing where we are concerned.

    Well out west David fans, look forward to a great concert!

    YAY SandyBeaches.

    I’ll definitely take those bracelets off your hands! And I do love emails. Currently waiting for a fruitcake recipe email :)

    Abrra, those pictures are gorgeous! Thank you Kristyn and FunnyGirl!!!

    The videos are a treasure to behold, my head is spinning lol

  52. djafan said

    Oh I was thinking SB not only is he accepting his voice and how we feel about it but maybe he’s accepting that he’s not weird looking. When asked why he’s so cute after giggling for about a minute I hear he said “I don’t know”.

    ♥David you are stunningly handsome with a voice for all time♥

  53. PandasMama said

    Wow! An autographed poster would be so cool to own. Maybe some day I’ll get to a VIP if he ever comes back to Texas.

    I can make ringtones for IPhone. Give me a song phrase and I will make anything you need.I will add ringtones to the Candy Jar as I make them.

    I plan to make a Good Place and Let It Be ringtones. Just need to pick the phase ;)

    Tonight I am adding Stroudsburg videos to Unplugged.

    Back home after a day of travel and so lovely to meet Sandy Beaches and Silverfox in person for the very first time! In fact, I met many fans for the first time and it was a special weekend. If you are on the fence about going to a remaining concert date, do it!

    Still recovering from last night’s concert in Stroudsburg which was SERIOUSLY AWESOME!!

    I’ve been out of the fansite loop for some time, but David and his dear devotees are never far from my thoughts. So it was a real treat to attend the My Kind of Christmas concert and to spend some time before, during and afterwards with the Voice and Snow Angelzz attendees (waves to Archiesfan4life, Angelica, Silverfox, Tofan, Ref, Kizzi, Sandy Beaches, Marsha and that beautiful young Canadian gal who’s family hails from Korea – sorry I forgot your name!) When AF4L comes back down to earth, I’m sure you’ll be hearing about her close encounter with DA. Be prepared to be gobsmacked!!

    Can’t pick out my favorite number, they were all that superb. How is is possible, but I do believe that David’s voice and delivery keep getting better and better. His lower register seems richer and stronger, and those glory notes…well, they’ve always blown me away, but last night they soared to heavenly heights! His voice transports you to a world of peace and happiness. God bless this kid.

    Love, love, love the band! Loved David’s banter with the band. Loved David’s banter with himself, lol. Loved the shy but endearing way he interacts with the crowd, having grown in comfort, confidence and spontaneity. Loved the surprises of youngsters joining David on stage, and Drummer David delivering an impressive beat!! Loved David’s efforts to remind us again and again of the beauty and true meaning of the holiday season and the need to reach out to those less fortunate.

    And, as always, love the way David interprets and caresses each note, the sheer joy and passion he exudes with every delivery, touching our hearts and souls. He truly is a conduit of the spirit!

    One more comment. After David’s performance of one of my all time favorites, Zero Gravity, with the crowd near frenzied hysteria, I’m wondering…isn’t there some way to convince him to officially record this bona fide gem on his next pop album?

I will check out Marlie’s tale of the two venues…9 hours in Newark airport and not out of here yet! I am at a Samsung power charger station and everyone is listening to my youtube tour songs by David! I think that they love you too David!

    Freo and Zoe Welcome back :)

    Zoe
    Zero gravity is on the TOSOD Asian Edition. It’s one of the 5 bonus songs for that release. Its a big hit!

    I have been in my tinkering shop again. Here is the link to a few iPhone ringtones I made from Live performances.

    After you download the file:

    Connect your phone to your pc

    Launch iTunes

    Click Ringtone from the upper left menu

    Drag and drop the file (m4r format) to the grid

    Click the Device icon for your phone on left side

    Click Tones tab (right panel) and check the box next to the new ringtone to add it

    Sync your phone
    (save these inst. for the next time)

    To find it on your phone. Go to Settings. Then Sounds. Then Ringtone and it will be in your menu. Select the ringtone you want, then hit the home button at the bottom to close it up.

    Betsey #31: What is it with the tears? I was fine till I got home. Now, every time I watch a video I tear up. He just has touched us all so with these performances. I’m still in a stupor, and like SF has mentioned, a little down knowing I won’t see him for a while, and who knows how long?

    So good to see so many of you! I am sorry I missed you Angelica. I think you were inside by the time I arrived at the venue and then it was so dang dark I couldn’t see anyone except who was right next to me. I’ll catch you on the next round!

    Abrra, Thanks for the ringtones, Gonna have fun with this!

    Zoe#54, Was hoping you’d be at the Stroudsburg show with AF4L!
    Did I read this correctly?:

    ‘”When AF4L comes back down to earth, I’m sure you’ll be hearing about her close encounter with DA. Be prepared to be gobsmacked!!”

    Oh my goodness!

    SandyBeaches#61, Thanks for spreading the David music but are you home yet??

    Marlie#63, Can’t wait to read your recap. Silverfox and you and I huddled together at the Atlantic City VIP about two years ago while we waited our turn. Good times! Sorry we crossed paths this tour; I went to Westbury and you to Irving Plaza and Verona. Hope to see you next time. :)

    Caption from SB: “Moments before he was wisked away. There is an angel near the arm of the security guard!!! Just a comment here, but we see how much more he seems to be needing security to help him along? Well he loves it or so it seems to be caught in the exciting moments. It shows the sheer delight that is growing in his fanbase but then the concerts were quite wonderful.”

    Sitting at my desk for the last time before I leave for Boise. Seem to be pretty worthless here as far as work goes. They will probably be glad to see me leave. I do have a BIG smile all the time. That should count for something.
    The videos had me too excited and now you are telling me they do not do him justice? OMG

    Love that photo of David looking over his shoulder with such a gorgeous smile. And I have no trouble at all believing that he walks with angels.

    Dja, That’s a great interview. I thought it nice that they admitted that they were so surprised he had so many fans. I hope a lot of radio stsations begin to realize that and play his music more. And I love that they had him laughing. His laugh is contageous.

    Dear Abrra, those photos! Wow, some great ones there. I love the black & whites! And that gif is soooo adorable.

    “How did she survive this look??” haha Good question!

    And I don’t know how the little girls on stage were still standing by the end of the song. DId you see the look on his face, smiling at them toward the end of the video?

    I love it when you start tinkering around Abrra! So many goodies to feed my hunger!

    When I first bought my tickets for the Stroudsburg concert, I couldn’t believe it was only going to be a few short weeks before I would witness the VOICE in all his gloriousness! I was obviously very bummed when the realization of that happening went flying-out-the-window lol!
    It’s difficult for me to put into words how much I appreciate all of you who have shared your videos, pictures, and re-caps. Getting caught-up on viewing, listening and squeeing out loud has been so much fun! Thank you. Two words that mean so very much.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
