David Archuleta Launches New Clothing and Hair Product Lines!

Singer/songwriter, best-selling Author, Humanitarian and Actor, David Archuleta can now add Endorser for clothing and hair products line to his resume.  Just a few hours ago at a musical fashion show at The Trinoma Activity Center in The Philippines, David launched both a new clothing line for Bench Clothing and a new hair products line for Fix Professional Hair Styling Products.

A huge thank you to Norms, who was able to make a Ustream available for the fans back home.  After an impressive slide show on a large screen, in which David modeled Bench fashions, he sang five songs, “Nandito Ako”, “Touch My Hand”, the “Good Place/Let It Be” medley, “Crush” and then “A Thousand Miles” after the fans chanted “one more song!”.

David carried the entire concert portion of the show himself and the emotional connection he has with the fans was palpable.  There even seemed to be an element of  farewell and appreciation, in my humble opinion.  Maybe you’ll agree if we’re lucky enough to see the performances on youtube.

    Oh, DA!! How happy I am that you “listen to the echo” inside!!

    How I love seeing the increasing ratio of men to women in the audience around you.

    And how I rejoice to hear the people singing all around you and joining you in your song. Dreams do come true, DA. You are proof of that.

    You are a wonder.

    Unfortunately the window for a David jeans endorsement is closing fast. Was thinking this as I watched the Abs photo vid. He looks especially great in the black jeans with black and white checked shirt. All of these clotheslook mahvelous.

    Mari – feeling emo overload, too. Trying hard to not think of what comes next. lalalala lalala See how I just psyched myself out of going down that road. tick tock tick tock oh dear.

    Abrra,
    Wow, that video the fans made … I’m not one who cries, but that brought me to tears. David said he “realy needed it.” I can’t imagine how heartwarming, and comforting, that must be for David. ♥♥♥ What a wonderful tribute for him.

    How loved he is for inspiring so many, and what wonderful fans to show him how much he has meant to their lives. *still in tears* That was so beautiful. ♥♥

    Omigosh, skydancer. Your “I feel like a crazed squirrel running all around, gathering up nuts for the long winter” has to be the perfect metaphor for what most of us must be feeling. I think over the next two years I am going to be very, very thankful that during American Idol season 7 I was enamored enough with a young Latino singer to seek out information about him on the web. The relationships forged over those first months have helped so far and I think they will keep helping.

  21. Abrra said

    MT #17

    I didn’t make it too far before I had to “boohoo” from the thank you video in #14. I am not sure if its what the fans say to David or the fact that he is so touched by what they say. I hope he has a chance to put the video on his phone as a reminder. I am volunteering for that job. :)

    Boy, has he come a long way since then or what?

  23. djafan said

    “I feel like a crazed squirrel running all around, gathering up nuts for the long winter”

    Sky, this makes so much sense lol. I’m at work but in the Archufog without much sleep :)

    David saying “I needed that” made me cry. My love and devotion for this amazing young man is cemented not that it wasn’t before he just keeps me adding to it :)

    I’ve offered Bench to pay for that video of the photo shoot. Did you guys see him playing it up for the camera? I think he’s always been a ham but to shy and inhibited to let loose and be his total self. We began to see it on the My Kind Of Christmas Tour in the way he dressed, danced, sauntered, flirted? Not to mention his rich, velvety, impeccable vocals. Have you watched Salt Lake’s This Christmas? If not please do so :)

    Which is why I’m so thankful that the opportunity for Nandito Ako. David has said in so many interviews that he has learned things about himself and grown so much by this experience. He seems so happy to know that he can and did do a good job of acting and that he was able to tap into those emotions which exist in all of us but some of us are better at letting them out. David tapped into something deep in himself and was surprised that he had the ability to do so and portray behaviors that aren’t the norm for him or for most, but its acting. I truly believe we wouldn’t see the confidence and growth if it wasn’t for this unexpected endeavor and might have given him a way to release some to those emotions that we sometimes hold in and on to.

    I was so excited yesterday reading that David grew up watching telenovelas with his mom. I also grew up watching them and still do. They’re intense drama that last a few weeks. They have a story to tell they tell it and they end. A new one starts with other actors or some of the same. They are very well produced and educational. One of the last ones a watched was based in the town of Tequila, Mexico. In the midst of the drama I learned all about the production, marketing, and export business of the tequila. Right now the one I’m watching is set in a cattle ranch in Tuxtla. These telenovelas are a respected body of work in the Latin countries. They have big names and singers in the roles being played out. The trailers always show the intense scenes to spark interest, but they also have warmth, laughter and lotsa love ♥ And from what I’ve seen so far Nandito Ako has all the same elements.

    David’s voice will always be the call but if TPTB don’t hear it then things need to happen to make them aware. Like acting and modeling and yes, the mission. In one month he gained 159,760 followers on facebook, twitter, last.fm and my space. Some of those may be just curious but the media monitors and reports these things to those measuring popularity. Just for comparison Cook with the mega promo gained 25,320 followers in same amount of time. Cook gets radio play, his tour was average and mind you he had Gavin with him, a well known who I keep seeing on night time shows but had no draw. Everyone says the money is made on touring. Well David had a very successful tour close to selling out and almost selling out venues and VIPs. Cook’s VIPs were $75 and no sellouts. Cook has a label, management, publicity team, etc. So why is this? Eman said it best “David has real and staunch fans” yep he does.

    21. Abrra,
    I think it’s a little of both.

    I can’t help feeling a little guilty that I’ve been thinking so much about myself and all that I will miss while he is gone after his heartfelt tweet about “needing” that video and his comments about realizing that he may have to start from scratch.

    As much as he wants to do this mission, the thought that he might not have fans left (even thought I don’t believe that) when he comes back and may have to start from scratch must be so hard for him. I know he has “faith” that it will be ok, but there will surely be many times in the coming months that some doubts will creep in and worry him. My heart kinda hurts for him. It makes me even more determined to be here when he gets back.

    ♥ Love you, David. ♥ It’s gonna be okay. ♥

    Sorry for getting all sappy.

    Back to those gorgeous pics!! That is one handsome fella right there. :D

  26. MT said

    Okay, back to being selfish. LOL Lemme see, it’s Friday, that means in 3 days Nandito Ako is going to begin it’s first airing. Any idea how we’re going to see it?

    Please, please, please … someone come up with a way?

    Oh, and I loveeeee these two pics. :)

    MT, I’m pretty sure we can watch it on that hayag website. I think it’ll livestream on there and then also be available to watch later if you miss the livestream. I could be wrong, but that’s my plan and my hope! :D

  29. Sunny said

    The pictures of David for the Fix ads with that amazing hair are stunning!! Bench was really smart to pick him to endorse their products because he is so naturally goodlooking!! Thanks for all the pics & vids that have been put up on this site!! It is so fun to look at everything. I feel like my senses are on overload right now but in a good way!

  30. MT said

    Lani,
    Sooo right, who could resist when faced with David smiling at them? :)

    Joujou, thanks, that’s good to know. Can’t wait till Monday to see that show!! It’s going to be all kinds of intersting. LOL

    And I will stop spamming now. haha See you later guys!!

    You said it perfectly MT. My heart hurts for him, too. I think one reason he has accepted all these wonderful opportunities (acting, modelling, endorsements) is that they are things he has wanted to try, and a part of him wonders if he will have such opportunities when he returns. I tend to think he has laid such a foundation in the Philippines, that he will be able to get started again there in two years without “starting from scratch.” I’m not sure about here in the US though.

    I had an interesting experience a couple weeks ago at the salon, and fortunately it did not involve hair color-ha! There were about eight women, ages 30-50, in the salon when the talk turned to American Idol, X-Factor, and The Voice. Well, all I could contribute was that I had only watched one season of AI and that I had become a huge fan of DA. All the women immediately said things like, “Oh, he has a terrific voice” followed closely by, “I wonder what became of him,” “Why didn’t he put out any music,” and “I’ve never heard anything about him since.” Without wanting to appear like a rabid fan, I mentioned his CDs and touring, etc., but everyone then said they didn’t listen to pop, or teen pop, etc., and that wouldn’t have been the sort of thing they would buy. It occurred to me that if I hadn’t made the effort to find out about David through his fansites, I probably would have been saying the same things, because I never listen to pop radio, seldom watch TV, and I certainly wouldn’t have come across his CD in any local stores because they weren’t well-stocked around here. I don’t know how I would have known what he was doing without the fansites.

    My point is that David still has tremendous name recognition from AI, but Jive’s imbecilic insistence on pushing him to teens and then not promoting him with CFTH or TOSOD effectively isolated him from many of his older fans, at least here in the US. I I’m just so very grateful to the TPTB in the Philippines and the fans in Asia who are supporting him, and I’m even more grateful for the way in which they share him with us!

  32. MT said

    Ok, haha One more. :)

    Xaris, love what you said and I think you’re right about the Pop thing.

    There may be a LOT of fans out there who have been waiting for David to move into more mature music. If it’s played, and heard, I think they’ll come right back to loving that voice.

    I hope someday he will be received and treated here in the U.S. the way he has been in the Philippines for the last month.

    (Please let it happen. He so deserves it.)

  33. cq said

    Mt, I totally agree with this statement: ” I hope someday he will be received and treated here in the U.S. the way he has been in the Philippines for the last month”.

    ram, “mahvelous!” These pics are too too much.

    Abs, sent my email to astromerchandise :)))

    David’s tweet about the video, don’t know that he would have been that open a month ago. All these experiences are going into his personal reservoir – the one from which he will be drawing from and thus creating the music he presents to us after his return.

    I had a little accident with my eye on Monday and haven’t been able to see very well until today. Doctor took the patch off and now its a day off and I can see! So I had all day to savor all the BEAUTIFUL David goodies that I hadn’t been able to properly appreciate all week.

    JR’s video of Signing Session for Bench Launch

    Shes says: “This is the only footage I had of the signing session. Cos I went out of the venue, to get my send-off gift to David Archuleta. But when I was trying to come back,the security wouldn’t let me in anymore! Towards the end of his
    signing, one of organizers recognized me and asked what I was doing outside and let me in! So I got this shot but there was no more time to give him my gift. It was weird how randomly selective the process was in allowing people to go up on stage for the signing or gifting. I just wanted to hand the gift, even to Kari or any of David’s assistant but even that we were not even allowed. So Naree and i just went to the hotel to leave our gifts at the concierge. Here’s hoping he or Kari got them.”

  42. Bebereader said

    #40 Thanks Abs. BTW, if you ever get tired of your avi, I’ll be glad to take it off your hands. LOL

    There was a Twitter frenzy tonight, trying to trend “Latin America Loves David Archuleta”. Guess what? It worked. We got it trending and this tweet from the man himself:

    @DavidArchie

    Saw that “Latin America Loves David Archuleta” is trending worldwide lol. Thanks you guys! A Spanish song then? Let’s see what we can do!

    Did you hear him?? A Spanish song! fajdjjdjjjkldla and all kinds of perfect!

  43. Glad to see you have found my Bench launch vids – isn’t he wonderfully, unbelievably radiant?

    I was supposed to sit in the moshpit but when I was studying all the angles and the realization that IT WAS the moshpit (source of all featured pix & TV clips), I had to peak to the organizers to allow me to transfer. Lorma was the same cos she has to Ustream.

    Was 2 mins to show start when we were allowed to transfer. Thank goodness cos we were able to do what we set out to do. Capture his pure amazingness :)

    LOL, and I escaped the moshpit exposure!

  44. MT said

    40. Abrra, Think I’m gonna be a fan of eye wear too. Nice!

    Bebe, that third vid, 3:37 …the arm … someone been working out? & 4:10 is just … Wow! There must be hundreds and hundreds of photos from that shoot. I hope we get to see a LOT them.

    JR and Lorms.. thank you again for what you have provided. They are beautiful! And, thank goodness you escaped the moshpit!!

    MT #46… yeppers, the arm at 3:36…it’s screaming screamcap! I had to pause the vid and just take it in for a little bit. :)

    WELL!!!!! I NEVER–in my life have seen a more photogenic human being–it’s to the point where it’s beyond words–it’s ridiculous!!!

    David even seems more relaxed and having fun in these photo shoots–not looking like “What do I do next?” He’s just going with the flow–where ever that goes—just moving around –lots of action-so the camera can capture different looks–not posed. LOVE–LOVE–IT!!!

    I unearthed a T-shirt I bought about 2 years ago–that about says it all–

    DAVID……A irresistible combination of puppies, bunnies, freshly cut grass, sunshine and testosterone.

    Maybe puppies and bunnies don’t quite fit any more—but they’re so huggable. ;)

    ray, recognize the signs…sounds like you did.

    Would ya look at that billboard! If anyone should ever do a hair endorsement it’s him.

    “A Spanish song then”….Mr Archuleta, you are a sly one. He sounds so nonchalant.

    bebe, so you’re into shades…will those do?

    Photo shoot vids……well howdy-do!
    You said it dakgal, ” I NEVER–in my life have seen a more photogenic human being–it’s to the point where it’s beyond words–it’s ridiculous!!!”….relaxed, going with the flow, a natural!

    MT, 3:36… or 1:51 or that smile at 2:17 or 3:00 or 3:17 where he lifts his head or, or, or…and love the shot where he is throwing the hat forward with both arms.

    Dak, I totally agree, He just has to be himself and let them snap away.

    48. Tawna,
    haha yep, had to take a little pause there myself.

    Emme, Ahhh I love the hat part too! haha I think we could amost mark every second. That vid is THAT full of win win win!

    Abrra,
    That billboard … now that’s how it should be done. :) And look at all those lovely lights. It’s going to be outstanding at night … David … 30 feet tall … and all lit up. Hope those people driving by are careful. That could be VERY distracting.

    I want to live there, want to get married there, I want to have my children there and I want to be a grandmother there,
    I found my place in the world.

    MT, “David … 30 feet tall … and all lit up. Hope those people driving by are careful. That could be VERY distracting.”
    LOL!
    (they might as well make the speed limit in the area 5mph, or better yet, just put in a stop sign, cause there will be a lot of rubbernecking going on :))

    Dak,“WELL!!!!! I NEVER–in my life have seen a more photogenic human being–it’s to the point where it’s beyond words–it’s ridiculous!!!”
    haha! I couldn’t agree more Dak, Like MT says… “He just has to be himself and let them snap away.”
    Dont you just know the photographers must all LOVE working with David?

    poof! oh no! haha!

    Emmegirl, hows about :00 to 5:07, that’s my favorite part:))

    Beeeeeeebe his head is turned in this photo shoot.so its different from abrras..aww,then of course there is the one of little David in his stroller, with the white frame sunglasses<3 Sunglass pictures are rare come to think of it aren't they?

    Dakgal the consummate wonderer!! :roll:

    How can I possibly miss him –when all I’ve seen for three+ weeks is his gorgeous kisser.– But I do!!!

    By the way David–wonderful vlog.

  65. ray said

    o man he is still our david, tears ,tears,tears

  66. emmegirl said

    The script couldn’t have been written any better. What an incredible send off for him.

  67. Blueberry Ice said

    Bebe! David has such an impressive resume and I truly feel it’s just the tip of the iceberg of many opportunities to come! I did manage to be up for Ustream of his Bench launch. It was exhilarating to see it unfold live … glued to the screen with the biggest smile. Felt an array of emotions: so proud, thankful, happy, & yet at the same time I felt a catch in my heart when he mentioned it was his last performance …

    Dja; #23 … He does have the most loyal fans and love that he is gaining new followers each day!

    MT; Didn’t get a chance to say that I loved how your poem so beautifully captured the whole persona of David … hope there is more to come! #24 … I wish my mind would not struggle with what my heart feels especially knowing it must be even hardest on David.

    Kaycee; I must say I’ve never been inspired like you when helping my kids at school … so enjoyed your clever poem!

    Xaris; #31 … I believe that there is a niche for David’s voice and music but only if he can be heard or seen, which is sadly so little in the U.S. One does not need to be a fan to listen or buy good music but it’s got to be played to be heard. So it’s been exciting to see all this fabulous media explosion and now a major endorsement. The more exposure, the more people will know who he is. What we’ve seen happen in a mere month in the Philippines can surely serve as a future blueprint for how PR & marketing should be done in promoting an international star like David. It is what I truly hope for in the U.S. because as in any business, he’ll need solid financial backing and promotion to build and keep his career going.

    JR; #43 … Just had to say you, Lorms, Naree, et al have been just AMAZING! Do you guys ever sleep, lol! I nominate Naree to be one of
D’s official photographer. With how beautiful her candid photo’s are, I can’t imagine what she could do with a one-on-one photo session! One day I hope to thank all of you in person when visiting your lovely country. Until then, maraming salamat po sa inyo!!!!!!!

    Wonder if Bench is considering stores in the U.S., because now is as good as time as ever, don’t ya think? ;)

    Abrra; #59 … Wowwwww! So excited for you! Love how your name is written so boldly & neatly …

    David’s Vlog! … You are loved beyond words! Praying for safe travels!

    Dakgal; #64 … “How can I possibly miss him –when all I’ve seen for three+ weeks is his gorgeous kisser.– But I do!!!” <—— DITTO!!!!!

    Like most of us, I am also hoping that those with the power to make decisions in the United States, have seen, not only David’s work these last five weeks, but noted the reactions of all those in contact with him. There is a market for David,,,, The human race.

    First, Thanks so much Abrra, for losing sleep once again to bring us so many goodies this morning. ♥

    And to JR and Lorms and all those who have been so generously sharing through UStreams, vids and pics, you are wonderful. Without you, we would have been deprived of participating in all the wonderful things happening with David over on your side of the world. Just saying thanks doesn’t seem enough but, Thank You. I hope you know how much we all appreciate it.

    55. Sky, LOL Yes, LOTS of rubbernecking going on!

    56. That first photo is my favorite so far.

    65. Ray, yes, it’s good to see that our adorable, rambly David hasn’t changed. :)

    Loved the Vlog, David. You never fail to make me smile. And thanks for thinking of us fans back at home here in the states and everywhere else, too. ♥

    67. Blueberry Ice,
    Thanks :) Glad you enjoyed it.

    68. hahaha I just LOVE those Vangie commercials. David is really good in them, and they are so cute and funny. He is just soooo adorable.

    69. Poof, I totally agree! I hope those with power are paying attention and noticing how amazingly popular this guy has the potential to become everywhere, not just in Asia.

    Ok … back to watching that adorable Vangie video and the vlog. :)

    Thank you to all the fans in the Phillipines for being there and sharing the love with everyone else! What a great month it has been!

  76. Poof…”Like most of us, I am also hoping that those with the power to make decisions in the United States, have seen, not only David’s work these last five weeks, but noted the reactions of all those in contact with him”…just wanted to repeat that!!

    It is not David that needed the changing but the types of music that were being in the forefront. After seeing what was presented at the Grammys opening and closing and in between, i think that I can safely say that David was before his time and they will be ready when he returns…After his time away, he won’t have to go far away again…well for shorter trips maybe, everyone does!

    Is there a departure time???

    Love everything that has happened to David in these past 5 weeks! He deserves every bit of the love and attention he got while he was in the Philippines! His vlog was so special! The Vangie vid is adorable! Even though he is planning to record some songs & possibly a Spanish song, I hope he gets some quality time with his family before he goes on his mission. He deserves some rest & downtime before he goes. What an amazing 5 weeks this has been and I’m glad we all got to enjoy it through vids, pics, tweet, vlogs from David, etc.!! David, we will be waiting with open arms when you return from your mission!!

    Hi everyone!

    David & Kari should be getting ready to head back to the states or may already be in the air so I wanted to post the Prayer for David with a few additions to reflect our gratitude and our wish for David’s safe return.

    Dear Lord,

    Thank You for taking great care of David. For watching over him and protecting him from harm.
    Thank you for surrounding him with your love and giving him strength to accomplish so much in such a short time.
    Thank you for helping David rise up to the challenges he faced and the courage to say yes to those challenges and no to those he could not reasonably accomplish.
    Thank you for surrounding him with people who respect, support and love David unconditionally and separating him from those with agendas other than for his well-being.
    We pray David continues to have the stamina to sustain his hectic pace and will know to rest when he’s tired and weary.
    Give David assurances that he is loved when he feels doubtful and unending joy as he has given so much joy to so many.
    Keep him always safe in your protective arms as he makes his way back home to the U.S.
    And please Lord, give us the wisdom to do right by David and help us in the way we support him so that it is always in his best interests.
    We pray David will always encounter goodwill and happiness wherever he goes.
    Above all, keep David and his glorious voice healthy and strong as he continues fulfilling his destiny.
    Though we may be unworthy, we humbly pray. Amen.

    Dear David,

    Thank you for an unbelievable five weeks! You have out-done yourself with every challenge and made us look at the “new” you with much admiration and in total awe. Hoping you & Kari have a safe and restful flight home. Take care & never, never doubt our love and devotion for you now and Forevermore. Contigo Siempre.

    #92 Oh, David…as you should be…up there in lights, inspiring us all!

    Feeling a bit melancholy tonight as this awesome chapter comes to a close. Another chapter begins…but, alas, no JR, Lorms or Naree to document it for us, no nightly videos and pictures to go through, no mall shows or press conferences to anticipate, and no cryptic tweets to decipher, haha! (And yet we will all be a lot more rested!) We truly have been spoiled these past 5 weeks, and it was apparent through it all that David was doing it for the love of his fans. Thanks to everyone who made it possible for us all to be a part of this wonderful past month…that definitely includes you too, admins! And in the wise words of Dr. Seuss: “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

    *Raises glass* Thank you, David! Here’s to the next chapter!

  94. … picture of David at #92…HUGE/way up there & all lit up..exactly where he belongs! This has been such an amazing experience for him as well as his fans everywhere~life changing from the sounds of his latest vlog which is truly heartfelt..pure emotions coming through our computer screens like crazy. Way to go David…job well done & thank you for taking us along on this incredible journey~♥

    When I look at that huge lighted poster it reminds me of the “law of attraction’. Back when we first became a fan base for David we all had wishes to see his face on a billboard. We knew he was deserving of whatever success that would make this possible. Some fans made mock magazine covers or billboards with David’s image to show us his future. We stayed strong and loyal to his career in music though all the long months after he left his “handlers”. It does my heart good to see how far he has come by being “just David”. But we knew that this was all that ever mattered to him. He has shown by example that being yourself brings the most success.

    Abrra, in #99 you mention how far David has come. I was just reminiscing about this as well.

    David often says American Idol was like “boot camp.”
    All the moments captured in this video (from four years ago) were the small steps…
    on the pathway to the many, many challenges and wonderful experiences we’ve seen from David along the way… and especially now in the Philippines!! He’s a winner!! Nothing will take him away from our hearts!

    The man who handed david a business card around 2 min mark looked like he really had to make a point. I will imagine that he told David that when he gets back from his mission that he needs to call the number on this card and find more opportunities than he ever dreamed about.

    Sky, trailblazer FTW!

    The send off video is so touching. Such a constant outpouring of love these past 5 weeks!…I hope David is able to take home all that love in his heart…and keep it there with him over the next 2 years.

    I just LOVE this recent comment from David. It speaks volumes as to who this wonderful young man is..

    “I’ve worked very hard for the last 4 years or so. To be able to come to where I am today… to be able to have the opportunities given – to record, to do shows, to provide for the fans – and it is also been my way of living, I mean it’s been my job, too. So to have to decide and leave all that is very hard. But I think this is something when you trust God. I don’t know what’s gonna happen in 2 years. I don’t know if I’m gonna have to start from scratch again. But I trust God. I have trusted Him so far and He has never let me down. I don’t want to let Him down cos this decision is for Him. So I trust that He knows my intention and He will provide a way when I get back, like He always has.”

    It reminds me of one of my favorite verses from the Bible:

    “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3: 5-6)

  109. cq said

    Kaycee, it breaks my heart to read those words from David “I don’t know if I’m gonna have to start from scratch again”.
    Hoping that he has created a good foundation so that he doesn’t have to start from scratch.
    God does help those who help themselfs.
    A year hiatus would of been perfect, but two, I’m a little worried. Only worried about his career, not David personally. He will be just fine and have a fine life with whatever he chooses to do. I’m just hoping that his passion for a music career is even stronger in two years, IMO.

    Hi Everyone! I just wanted to post this info from FOD for those who may not have seen it.

    FOD has reached CD Wow, and received the following response confirming they WILL have it available. With TOSOD – ATE, they were a little late at the game however, but this time they have received many more inquiries and hopefully we can get solid information soon ~ Thanks, Pastel!

    I hope this is true. I ordered TOSOD-ATE from them at a great price and it arrived very quickly.

    In 2010, Gloria and Emilio Estefan gathered Latino musicians in Miami to record a Spanish-language version of “We Are The World” for Haiti earthquake relief. Carlos Santana, Jose Feliciano, Jon Secada, David Archuleta and Taboo of “The Black Eyed Peas” were among the artists that took part.

    I go to the Somos El Mundo video almost everyday because I love David’s Spanish voice (Ok, I love his voice period!) and what I notice was that David always is commented on, I would say that he is one of the most commented on artist in that video and always very good comments.
    Hoping he can record a Spanish song before he leaves!

    ‘American Idol’ notes: David Archuleta, Carrie Underwood and more (Video)

    David Archuleta comes home: David has been in the Philippines filming a soap series for TV5 in his very first acting gig and while he’s had a blast meeting his fans and working on new projects, he’s headed home to Utah to get ready for his mission with the Church of Ladder Day Saints. Before he leaves on his mission, David has been busting his behind to some new music recorded for his fans, since he will be gone for two years. He posted a new video blog and revealed his plans to record some music for us when he gets back to America. He said: “I will still be working to get as much done for all you guys before I’m gone.” Check out the video below for David’s full video blog.

    Silverfox; #84 … Thank you for your beautiful prayer!

    Extending deepest sympathies to David & his family on the loss of his great-grandmother.

    Heidijoy; #98; Dja; #114 … Well, I just stumbled my way through setting up a twitter account, lol! It’s a bit intimidating. Not sure what I’ve got myself into but hey, anything for our “trailblazer”, right!!!!! ;)

  118. emmegirl said

    #107 what a endearing send off.

    abrra, he was definitely making sure David understood his intent and David was listening to every word.

  119. emmegirl said

    blueberry ice, my hats off to you, I have not yet ventured.

  120. Heidijoy said

    Congrats to Blueberry Ice and all who joined twitter to help us trend

    Welcome Home David Archuleta

    Use in any sentence that includes those words for it to count. No hashtags and Not quotation marks.

    6 pm PST 9 pm EST and so on………….

    That video of he send off—brought many tears–I’m sure some of the words were changed for David–it sounded like it to me anyway.

    Whoever that man was that talked to David–oh my–David was fighting back the tears–he was all choked up — maybe someone has a clue who it was–not that it makes any difference–but it sure touched David.

    Awaiting the words ” The Eagle has landed”

    My sympathies to David and his family on the death of his great-grandmother.

  122. Heidijoy said

    oops no quotation marks

  123. poof said

    #115 Uh,,,, have we discussed the last minute or two of “Wherever You Are” yet? Of course not! There are no Words!

  124. betsy said

    Poof, so funny. :)
    I was just coming here to write the following:
    Can we all take a minute and discuss and appreciate the beautiful Wherever You Are?
    Because it is so gorgeous. There is even a note that sounds suspiciously like the note or sound or whatever the heck he did in In This Moment. You know the thing I’m talking about.
    This song is gorgeous and now there is a clear version. I just LOVE what David can do to a love song.
    So yes, I cannot wait for this album to be released.
    I may be screaming inside, a little.

  125. jans11 said

    I want to send my heartfelt condolences to David and his family. Was sad to hear about his great grandmother. God Bless them and may they have peace in their hearts.

    Don’t know how anyone could have a dry eye after watching the 2 videos above, one from the Philipinos and the other from Viet Nam. They are so heartwarming and sincere. So glad David went to both places and had such great treatment.♥

    Hope David is trending worldwide. That is one thing I can’t help with…never got into the twitter thing! Hats off to you Blueberry Ice!!

  126. Bebereader said

    Within five minutes of trending “We Love You David Archuleta”, it started trending on Twitter! 1,000 tweets in five minutes!

    Blueberry Ice, Congrats on attempting to learn Twitter. It’s a great communication tool that I can’t live without now.

    Beautiful send-off video by the fans in The Philippines. I expect no less. They are such warm and caring people.

    Chat was fun last night. Abrra, thanks for keeping The Voice Unplugged up to date with the latest videos.

    Welcome home David and Kari!!!! Always so happy when we get the news after a flight!

  128. silverfox said

    It’s Sunday. David won’t tweet today. We’ll have to wait until tomorrow or at least until after midnight. He was trending for a while. I hope he knows about it.

    Anyway, I’m very happy he’s back home in the USA. Welcome Home David!

  129. dakgal said

    AAAAAH—a peaceful night here in my little domain!!

    David is home and all is right with the world. :P

    A big WELCOME home David and Kari!!! Now go sleep for two days, another big time adjustment , of which I’m sure he will ignore –and he’ll just keep on truckin. Can’t imagine how excited he must be to see his family!

    Farewell vid from Vietnam Archies. They touch my heart.

    “Dear David,
    This video is made to show you some love from Vietnamese Archies.
    We can’t thank you enough for coming to Vietnam to sing for us last July, and everything you have done for us.
    Even though you’re gone, the bond between you and us can’t be broken.
    Oceans apart, but we’ll be with you in spirit FOREVERMORE.

    May God keep you safe and warm!”

  132. Heidijoy said

    Trending went well. David trended Worldwide, USA, Canada, New York, LosAngeles, San Francisco, Salt Lake City and a few other cities occasionally. It was very strong for two Hours.

    Kari is good about telling David when he trends and we left her messages.

    David has trended 4 days in a row now and Phillipines will be working on NanditoAko next.

    I’m glad I joined twitter!! Probably won’t use it much once David is gone but glad the Fan Sites will be here.
    Thanks to those that participated.

  133. djafan said

    WOW what a twitterfest!

    Welcome home David Archuleta, Latina America wants you David Archuleta trended worldwide and in many many cities throughout the world. Kari was included in most tweets so I’m sure David seen. SF, I don’t expect a tweet from David yet. The love for David is incredible. I hope he’s feeling it :)

    Blueberry Ice, what’s your twitter name???

    Emmegirl jump in!!!

    I’ve added the links to the sites that should be streaming Nandito Ako on the right sidebar under Nandito Ako for quick access.

  134. MT said

    My heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to David and his family at their loss. I’m glad David is home and can be with his family.

    Bluesky,
    That video from the Vietnamese fans is really touching. I hope David gets to see it.

  135. MT said

    Dja,
    Tonight was my first time tweeting except a couple of times yesterday to figure it out. lol It was fun seeing his name trend worl wide!

    And I checked out the TV5 live feed and it worked!! Yay! Unless they block it, which I really hope they don’t, I think we should be able to see it. I can’t watch it as it airs, but bless them for having recordings of the last 4 hrs up to watch. So I can see it a little later … I think. *fingers crossed*

    Whoo Hoo … tomorrow is the day!! Oh, and I just went to the site and saw the comercial with David for Nandito Ako. :)

  136. Heidijoy said

    Just had to tell someone. I’ve been banned from twitter for the next few hours for being over the limit! ha! It’s kind of like a badge of honor for an old lady!! The things we do for David.
    Still trending in SLC and LA last I checked.

    Good Night. Hope we can get the streaming of NanditoAko

  137. gladys said

    I have seen in the programming of TV5, there will be a marathon Nandito Ako on Saturday from 21.30 hours. (Manila time)
    My work starts right at the time of Nandito Ako, so will I see the chapters in the marathon on Saturday.

    http://www.tv5.com.ph/index.php/schedule

  138. jans11 said

    Yea!! for Heidijoy!! lol That is the greatest thing!! haha When I don’t even know the first thing about it. Actually, I tried to sign up for it and something wasn’t going right and I gave up. But every once in awhile I get an email that someone is following me and I wonder how that can be, when I don’t even twitter!!

    Can’t you still make David trend even if he’s not around? Like “we love David Archleta” or “we miss David Archuleta”? That would keep him on the circuit for the 2 yrs he’s gone.

    And last night on chat we were talking about wearing tee shirts that had 2014 on it and all the fans would know what it’s about and if we see someone with it on, we know they are a fan.
