DAVID ARCHULETA

By Special Invitation, Gladys went to Chile! ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Monday, October 15, 2012

Original by Matt Clayton

 By Abrra and Bebereader

You had to be there on Saturday night to witness the absolute joy and passion from Gladys in reaction to the Musica Pop concert she attended by special invitation from the Senior Elders in Chile. The performers were Elder Archuleta on vocals and Elder Coello on piano. If you were lucky enough to secure a “seat” in The Voice Unplugged then you were privy to the excitement.

Gladys arrived to a room packed full of fans, waiting on the edge of our seats to see her, to hear every little detail of her experience, and then some. Let’s face it, we are missing David so much that it hurts and Gladys, who was so tired from her trip was full of energy as she spoke to us in-depth. She was generous of heart to follow with a question/answer session and we hung onto every word. We are, after all, a very inquisitive bunch! Abrra diligently copied excerpts from the chat text for you to read. Here is Djafan’s translation as it appears in the actual chat text, in upper case letters. Gladys will, of course, follow up with her own recap.

Gladys’ two-sentence recap:

I’M GOING TO SHARE IN GENERAL THINGS TO SWEETEN THINGS A BIT. HE SANG IMAGINE, DANCED SALSA, A SONG BY CELIA CRUZ, AND DANCED LIKE TO AL JOLSON

Size of crowd

TEN CHAIRS AT EACH SIDE, 20 ROWS AND MORE PEEPS IN THE BACK (400+ attended)

How he looked, what he wore

…DAVID IS STILL BEAUTIFUL AS EVER

WHEN I SAW DAVID DANCING AND SINGING, I SWEAR I THOUGHT OF TELLING EVERYONE THAT HE HAS GROWN, HIS CONFIDENCE IS HUGE, ON STAGE TRANSFORMS. TIMID NOT, IT DIDN’T EVEN EXIST.

HE SMILED AND ALL THE TIME SAID THAT HE WAS HOT

LAUGHED  A LOT AND HE IS NO LONGER LOOKING THIN
HE LOOKS GOOD AND SOME HAS GROWN, BIGGER BODY

HE DID THIS ALL DANCING IN A SUIT, MY GOD, I CRIED. THE GIRL NEXT TO ME DID TOO. WE COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT WE WERE WATCHING, WE COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT WE WERE SEEING.

TIE WAS TURQUOISE ♥

Language he spoke and sang

DAVID ALMOST NEVER SPOKE ENGLISH, HE SPOKE IN SPANISH

IT WAS ALL IN SPANISH, HE DID NOT SPEAK ANYTHING IN ENGLISH, GAVE A SPEECH IN PERFECT SPANISH.

HE SPEAKS IT REAL GOOD EXCEPT FOR SOME WORDS. HE GAVE A TALK ABOUT HIS DECISION IN SPANISH

WHEN HE FINISHED SINGING, HE SAID THAT IN HIS COUNTRY, THE AUDIENCE HE ASKED FOR MORE BUT DID NOT KNOW HOW SOME THINGS WERE SAID IN SPANISH

What he sang

HE SANG MANY HYMNS AT THE BEGINNING. WE WERE SCOLDED BECAUSE WE CLAPPED AND SCREAMED, BUT THEN IT COULDN’T BE HELPED.

AS A TRIBUTE TO THE ELDERS HE SANG DIXIE,  DOWN TO AL JOLSON AND KNEELED. DAVID WAS ON FIRE WHEN HE DANCED SALSA.

THE WHITE HAT HE WORE TO SING THE SONG OF AL JOLSON, WHEN HE FINISHED HE THREW THE HAT TO THE PUBLIC. I HAVE NEVER SEEN HIM LIKE THIS.

ALSO SANG IMAGINE AND THOUSAND MILES. HE ALSO SANG  HERO AND DREAM A MORNING IN SPANISH.  HE  SANG AN ARGENTINIAN SONG, I WAS UNCONSCIOUS, CALLED “THANKS TO LIFE”. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL SONG.

HE SANG ITS WONDERFUL WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!

HE SANG A SONG FROM THE MOVIE ROCKY, THE ORIGINAL SONG. PROBABLY EYE OF THE TIGER
WHEN HE WAS SINGING IT HE ACTED LIKE A BOXER, IT WAS TERRIBLE, EVERYONE WAS DROOLING

HE DID SOME IN FALALA SALSA STEPS THAT WAS NOTHING, HE REALLY DANCED.

HE ASKED US TO STAND AND DANCE WITH HIM WHEN HE SANG SONG BY CELIA CRUZ.

LIFE IS A CARNIVAL BY CELIA CRUZ, OMG! HE DANCED SALSA DANCING HE WAS SERIOUSLY, HE SAID HE LIKED THE AUDIENCE THAT DANCED WITH HIM NOT LIKE THAT MANY NORTH AMERICANS STAY SEATED.

Decision to go on a mission

HE SAID THAT THE DECISION TO GO ON A MISSION WAS SOMETHING THAT CAME FROM HIS HEART, JUST LIKE THE MUSIC, IT WAS A DECISION BUT SOMETHING DIFFICULT HE HAD TO DO.

His performance

JUST HIM AND LITTLE PIANO PLAYER. THE MAN IS SENSATIONAL, AND IN TRUTH COELLO PLAYS VERY WELL, PLAYED SEVERAL WALTZES. HE LAUGHED A LOT WITH COELLO.

TO SEE DAVID TO DANCE AND SING KNEEL, KARATE KICK IS SOMETHING I WILL NEVER FORGET WHILE I’M ALIVE.

WHEN THEY STARTED PLAYING THE NOTES OF ROCKY SONG, HE STARTED MOVING HIS ARMS LIKE BOXERS TO THE BACK, THEN TO THE FRONT, AND THEN BOXED WITH AN IMAGINARY SHADOW BOXER, IT WAS FUNNY.

AND THEN KICKING THE AIR LIKE A KICK BOXER, UNDERSTAND THAT I NEVER THOUGHT IN MY LIFE DAVID WAS GOING TO DO ANYTHING LIKE THIS.

HE WORE A WHITE HAT AND DID SOME DANCE STEPS AND CLOSE BY SANG COELLO. WHEN HE STARTED THE AL JOLSON SONG, HE STOOD NEXT TO COELLO AND THEY STARTED SINGING. THEY BOTH PUT ON THE WHITE HATS AND DAVID CAME TO THE CENTER OF THE STAGE

HIS VOICE HAS IMPROVED, NOW CAN HOLD ANY NOTE LONGER, NOT CHANGED, IMPROVED, HAVING HIS VOICE VERY RELAXED, THAT MUST BE IT.

The crowd

THEY TOOK HIM OUT HURRIEDLY, HE WANTED TO GREET US BUT THEY DID NOT LET.

THEY TOOK HIM OUT SO FAST AND HE KEPT SMILING.

YES THE SISTERS AND THE MISSIONARIES KNOW HE’S A FAMOUS RECORDING STAR. ALL THE YOUNG GIRLS THAT FILLED THE PLACE DID, TOO.

CHANTED EVERYONE “ONE MORE! ONE MORE!”

No pictures or video allowed

NOT VIDEOING OR PHOTOS. IT WAS NOT ALLOWED, THEY WERE GUARDING, THEY WERE WATCHING ME BECAUSE I WAS TAKING NOTES.

NO, YOU COULD NOT FILM OR TAKE PICTURES, WAS FORBIDDEN AND THERE WERE PEOPLE ON THE SIDE WATCHING.

The excitement doesn’t end here! There will be another public event in Chile at Christmas time that Gladys plans to attend.

    I love this post, the videos, with being blessed being a fan of David!♥ Love all you guys for posting all these goodies for us! He picks the right songs with the right lyrics, that’s for sure! Love watching David looking around with his grin on the side bar while I was watching “Life is a Carnival”! And smiling back at him! OMG, I’m a goner! David you are so special!! Oh, to hear him sing these songs! You are so blessed, Gladys!

  3. jans11 said

    Forgot to say…I love the white hat and turquoise tie too!!!! Great job!!! Sorry, but David makes me love everything!! He makes me so happy!! I think I need Ray’s fibulator!! lol

  4. gladys1961 said

    anyone knows a boy who now lives in Chile, he is called Archie Balboa, middleweights, perfect nose and good dancer?
    ahhhhhhhh I almost forgot, he uses white hat in the style of Chaplin. I think I saw it on Saturday night.

  5. mspoohbear said

    Thanks for the post Abrra and Bebe and Gladys thanks for sharing your exciting and wonderful experience with us. You truly are blessed! I can’t wait for your recap. Hint! Hint! I can’t believe he did the shadow and kick boxing. LOL! That must have been a sight to see! Never in a million years I would imagine him doing that, but then again, David always does amazing things. “HE SAID HE LIKED THE AUDIENCE THAT DANCED WITH HIM NOT LIKE THAT MANY NORTH AMERICANS STAY SEATED.” Well, you heard him peeps, let’s show him we North Americans can dance, too! LOL!

  6. Oh my, thanks for posting this. I’m so thrilled while reading and made me smile all the way. I paused on some sentences and imagine how David did those moves and even played the videos to have a perfect picture in my mind. Hope we get to him like that in 2014. I was hoping there are pictures will show up this time, but no pictures or videos allowed. Nope, not disappointed ‘coz Gladys did great sharing the story. And, I think that’s enough. Thank you so much THEVOICE for this wonderful post. I can’t wait for the full recap.

    And oppps…
    How did you survive Gladys watching those moves? Gahhhhh!

    Gladys
    Archie Balboa OMG! You are such a funny lady ;) I know Dakgal is looking down from Heaven and she approves of yet another name for the man of many faces.

    Thanks to Bebe for putting all the chat text into a cohesive format. I want credit the fans who stayed silent as Gladys told her story. It made it so easy for Djafan to translate for us. You were great Djafan!

    Angelica I now have a new desktop image. You are amazing!

    Gladys, Abrra, Bebe, djafan, huge (((((hugs)))) to all!!!! Thanks so much for sharing every magic moment, especially for those of us unable to log in to chat Sat. night, muchas gracias!!! (that’s pretty much it for my Spanish, lol)

  9. emmegirl14 said

    First, just can’t thank thevoice admins, and everyone involved, especially Gladys, enough for making all of this possible for the fans. You guys are just awesome!

    Dear Gladys, you will never know the gratitude we feel for what you have done for us. A Thousand Miles should be your theme song. It was so exciting listening to you in chat. We were hanging on your every word as dja frantically translated. As you started describing the details I was sca-reeeaming inside. And you are but one of a handful of people blessed with the opportunity to witness it. From your account, it sounded like he was happy and having the time of his life. That is all we need to know.

    And his voice has improved!? That thought gives me chills! One thing I remember you said in chat was something like, “the salsa dancing we have seen from him in FaLaLa compared to Saturday night was like comparing a mouse to an elephant”….eeeeeek!
    Hopefully a peek at things to come from Archie Balboa!

  10. bleubird19 said

    Gladys, Abrra, Bebe, djafan: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You have no idea what this means to me … well, yes, I guess you do … lol. Love all the descriptions of everything. If we can’t have pictures, our minds will have to do the trick and your descriptions give us plenty to work with. Thank you so much again! :)

  11. funfee said

    Oh THANK YOU so much!!!!!! This was so great! Saturday night was fantastic in Unplugged! We appreciate you so much, Gladys, for sharing this with us. And of course, thank you to Abrra, DJA, Bebe and everyone else who runs this amazing place! God bless!

  12. funfee said

    Oh and by the way, THE HAT picture!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sigh …

  13. Suzy-Q said

    I got chills just reading about Glady’s Chat account of her experience in Chile. It’s so exciting to know that David is doing a show like that as a missionary. I am Mormon and I don’t understand why the audience couldn’t clap unless the concert was held in the chapel. I am so happy that Gladys was able to attend a second performance of David and provide us with all the details. What would we do without her? It must be a big expense for her to do all of this traveling and then to go for a third time to the Christmas event. I feel like I should send her some money to help her out. What do you say, Gladys?
    Thank you to the Voice for posting what Gladys said during the Chat!!!!!

  14. violet4ever said

    Gladys and The Voice – Thanks so much for the description of the concert!! I’m really happy that David gets some chances to perform. And I am very glad we get to hear about it :)

  15. cq#DA2014 said

    Thank you so much Gladys, loved reading your recap. When I read that his voice has improved…WOW, he is going to be so ready to take the music industry by storm. Also thank you to everyone there at the Voice, such a fun site to visit everyday.

  16. Gladys, I was so happy that you received your invitation to David and Coello’s concert. I appreciate you sharing your experience with us. It was so exciting lurking as you shared your story and Djfan translated for us. Thank You Abrra, Bebe and Angelica for capturing the moments so we could relive the experience. Love the Picture up top with David’s white hat and Turquoise tie. Bless his heart. He seems so Happy and so lighthearted along with his serious moments too!
    Listening to You tubes of the songs is an added bonus here and on TheDavidChronicles.
    Thanks so much to The Voice :)
    Looking forward to your written recap Gladys. So happy you plan to attend the Christmas event too. So nice to have someone reporting to us that are waiting in the Wings.

    ((Gladys))…hugs and high fives! It was so much fun reading your recap! What a night! It made me so happy to hear that David is able to continue to bring joy to people through music…wherever he is.

    Bebe, Abrra and Dja–thanks for all the work behind the scenes to help us feel a part of the experience!

    Angelica–the top picture…just perfect!

  18. poof said

    I must add my thanks to everyone’s Gladys, Bebe and Abrra. My husband grew up in St. Louis and is a Huge Cardinal Fan. He Would Not get off the computer Saturday night so i could get on. He was rewatching games and listening to commentary because they just made it into the World Series. I didn’t think my ODD should trump his OCD for the Cardinals. So extra thanks to everyone who is explaining what happened at the concert. Keep those details rolling!

  19. mlpb3 said

    Bebereader – Thanks for this marvelous post and recap by Gladys! The chat was so much fun Saturday and I’ll never forget how surprised I was when Gladys starting telling the details. Went to bed very late that night, couldn’t sleep!

    Thanks to everyone here at the Voice – Djafan, Abrra, and everyone else who has a hand in this great website. Thank you so much for all your efforts.

    Thanks again to Gladys! Martha

  21. bluesky said

    Oh! The lyrics to Carnaval!

    I cannot think of a better theme song for David Archuletas’ life!

    Bravo, Chile, for connecting him ever deeper to his soul!

  22. sweetonDA said

    This was so exciting to read!!! I was able to be on chat for awhile Saturday but came late just before Gladys signed off, so getting all the info here is heaven.

    Gladys, our little ninja fan, thank you so much for giving us the details. I’m so glad you were able to go and see David in this light. Sounds like he is doing well, as he would say. I’m sure it gives his fan base reassurance that he is happy and doing what gives him a chance to be of service to others.
    I’m looking forward to your recap. Archie Balboa…love it!

    Bebe, Abrra, Angelica, and Dja, thank you so much for your timeless dedication in bringing us the info from this concert. I know you all must be tired. You are all so special. This is a great website.

    PS, love the hat picture too! :)

  23. ram said

    Holy guacamole! this David is right up my alley. Sing it David! zing, zing ……incoming! Not even sure I can survive this!

    Thank you sooo much Gladys. And The Voice peeps are awesome. Pic at the top is sheesh no words (just sounds is all I can make).

    Sky- “spicy nacho, more seasoning.” How much can we take??? OK, I say give us more, more Sazon! lol

    Ha we have some time to practice our salsa and bachata. Can’t wait to see him live in concert. ;)

  24. Read this is so exciting!!!! :) . I have to go and see one of this David’s concerts yes or yes haha. Maybe not this year but 2013 for sure ;)
    Thank you so much Gladys for telling us your experience :D

  25. bluesky said

    Are we being compensated for ‘respecting’ and ‘supporting’ DAs decision to serve? Yea, I think so. I think in the end we will all be very glad we did our best to support him in his “heart-decision” for his life. (Whatever form that support takes: curling up into a ball for 2 years, combing fan sites for crumbs, prayer, hugging each other for support… it doesn’t matter: we all deal with it and do our best in our own way…) The important thing is that the fans have shown and are showing so much support in every way they can, while letting the “line” reel out into the distant stream.

    After all, it is we, really, who are on the hook. *_*

    Following along in the slip-stream – water deeper than we thought. Let him go and who knows where he will take us?

    All my most sincere thanks to Gladys for taking such great notes and thereby saving us a seat by her side. And to all the admins and translator (Dja!) for their quick work to get this up.

    love you guys!

    WOW Gladys!! que bueno que hayas podido ir a verlo de nuevo! por lo que leí David ha cambiado mucho y para mejor,muy orgullosa de que haya cantado una canción muy conocida en nuestro país “Gracias a la Vida”,debe haber sido maravilloso escucharlo cantar eso :) ojalá tengamos mas oportunidades de conciertos para el año que viene y no sean tan estrictos en cuanto a cámaras pero entiendo que son eventos privados,muchas gracias por contarnos tu experiencia,hablamos pronto,un beso grande Gladys!

  27. MT said

    Bebe, Thanks for putting all this together for us. And to Abrra for chat and for Dja for the awesome translations. Angelica, That hat pic is just perfect!

    I was one of the lucky ones who got into chat! Yay! And here are some things that really struck me.

    #1: Gladys said in chat that his hair was brushed back off his forehead, (Not his usual missionary “do.”) This makes me smile. Yes, I know I have a hair fetish. Haha I admit it. But to me, this indicates that David was “ON”, becoming for a brief time “the performer, David Archuleta” when preparing to go on stage. That thought makes me happier than I want to admit.

    #2. Singing Eye Of The Tiger while demonstrating kickboxing and shadow boxing. This somehow reassures me that David, the performer, is still alive and kicking and growing stronger every day.

    #3. Dancing Salsa and asking everyone to dance with him! REALLY DANCING according to Gladys (*insert major spazzing here*) All I can say about this one is; not seeing this is still killing me! I’ve been secretly hoping that the Latin music and dancing down there would influence him so we get more dance moves on stage. It looks like I just might get my wish!

    #4. Laughing and smiling throughout, his usual mood on stage, so very David. This tells me that he was “feeling it” and happy as a clam about being up on stage in front of an audience again. I guess I was afraid that he would become so accustomed to not performing that he wouldn’t miss it. I’ve never been so glad to see signs that I was wrong.

    It’s funny how one night can change things so much for me, but I now feel so much better because after hearing Gladys’ account of what happened, I just know in my heart that his love of singing and performing hasn’t diminished one bit. It’s as strong as ever.

    So David, you just keep doing your thing over there. I’ll gladly wait till you get home.

    ** A special thanks to Gladys, without whom we would never have known any of this. Thanks for the peace of mind, and for sharing your experience with us. ♥

  28. Connie@Toronto said

    Wow with all this exciting experience of Glady’s and thank you The Voice for posting. Surely I missed the chat last Saturday in the Archuworld. Anyway, I’m so glad The Voice and other fan sites are here to update us as we all are missing him so much and was trying to pass the time checking each and every post everyday about David. Those songs that David sang, wish he sing it again in his 2014 concert. I was just imagining him while listening to it. Gahhh…. and the Salsa dancing, oh I wanna see him do that again. He’ll see the NA fans will be dancing with him in his concert. I would love to dance Salsa with him. (Huh, my bucket list wish !!!) surely he got that talent from his mom. Wow he is also fluent in Spanish after 7 months. Good for him. I know he love to learn and speak Spanish fluently. Another concert in Christmas that’s really amazing. Our Chilean Archies are so lucky that David can do more concerts while he is there. So, we’ll wait for more recap or update from Glady’s and thanks again for sharing the experience. :) :)

  29. bluesky said

    Thanks for putting Rays quote up there!

  30. Bebereader said

    Muchas Gracias amigos for your comments. I share this with my fellow Admins who all had a hand in putting this article together. That’s what I call teamwork! With lightning speed, djafan translated Gladys’ words while Abrra quickly copied the chat dialogue. I combed the three-hour chat transcripts for important info while Angelica did the artwork on the lead pic and gave her seal of approval. This piece was truly a labor of love!!

    How I wish Dakgal was here with us. What would she have to say about David Balboa? I miss her wacky sense of humor.

    Note the English translated lyrics in the video to Celia Cruz song “Life is a Carnival”. It was no accident that David sang that song. He carefully chose his songs. Read those lyrics if you haven’t already done so (and imagine David doing a little Salsa while you’re watching).

    Seeing the show through Gladys’ eyes and hearing her words that David is okay means so much to us. Through a miracle of fate, {{{{{{{Gladys}}}}}}} was invited to this event and we all felt like we witnessed greatness once again.

    If we’re lucky, perhaps David will treat us to some of these songs when he returns from his mission.

    Sky, We missed you on Saturday! So glad you’re back.

    Rubi, Welcome To The Voice!

  31. Sirinity Dorrell said

    Wow, your really lucky you got to go. I’m glad David is doing well.

  32. Many thanks to all parties involved; Gladys, Bebe and Abrra. Loved the Concert recap, sounds like it was a blast! Can’t wait to see him in Concert when he gets back and see how he’s grown with more confidence and stage prescence.

  33. emmegirl14 said

    Love seeing the new faces and familiar faces and all the excitement. *wave* He sure knows how to get us revved up.

    poof, hope your recovery is on track.

    SuzyQ, I was thinking the same thing. I would be more than happy to help somehow with Glady’s travel expenses. I am so grateful – if it wasn’t for her, the silence would be deafening. Having one of us seeing him live and in person is so reassuring and makes this much easier.

    Hair combed back, Mr. NotTimid doing his thang, my. Those young girls in the audience must have been swooning.

    Another recap written for the concert in Chile:

    Little Birdie in Chile
    by @ Nellie83

    From our little Birdie named Gisselle in Rancagua, Chile.
    Well, it was 6:28 PM and I was nervous like it was the first time I was going to see him. I waited a long time for the concert to start.

    Elder Archuleta kicked off the concert with two hymns, “Where Can I Turn for Peace”, and “How Firm a Foundation.”

    I don’t remember the order of the songs after that. He sang “I’m Strong”, “Dreams”, “One More Minute”, “He Sent His Son”, “I’m Trying to Be Like Jesus”, “Heaven”, “A Thousand Miles” and “Eye of the Tiger”. (From Gladys’s account he also sang “Wonderful World”, “Imagine”, and “Everybody Hurts”, the last one for the married missionaries.)

    more here http://onegoldeneagle.blogspot.com/2012/10/little-birdie-in-chile.html

    Thanks to Nellie and Gisselle!

    I have a feeling that YouTube will be busy today!

    Abrra

  35. Wow! Thanks so much for this post. I am a frequent chat lurker at The Voice, but not able to be there Saturday night. I am loving the picture here, along with the details and the speculation for 2014. I think the entire fan base was immediately on alert when Gladys received her official invitation to attend this performance in Chile. We knew there would be an official sharing. Thank you, Gladys! So happy you had this experience, for your sake, and for ours.

    I remember an early visit by David to the Philippines when he was asked about the American kick boxer, also named David Archuleta, who had just had a fight there. “Our” David indicated that he did know about it, and stated that he was, in fact, a boxing fan. Now “Eye of the Tiger?” Would have loved to see that!

  36. gladys1961 said

    I appreciate your words, on travel expenses.
    I’ve lived so long locked as oysters, now it was time to be happy. Like David I have also changed. On Saturday night I saw a new person, someone who has no shame and someone who takes risks.
    For four years, you, and everyone who attended his concerts, have given me a lot of videos, it is now time to return all the favors.
      Long ago I am saving and will continue for 2014 and 2015 and 2016 ……………………..
    You do not owe me anything, I owe a lot to you.
    As David said, my heart tells me to do what I’m doing, and I do it with love.
    Sometimes things happen for a reason.

  37. Abrra said

    Gladys, my friend, you are a GEM :) You deserve all things good. you have been special to me because for the past years you stayed a devoted fan with little hope of ever seeing David sing live. Now is your time to enjoy the wonderful opportunities to see and hear what many of us have in the past years. A live concert by David is a gift!

    Abrra

  38. stenocruiser said

    Well now, Gladys, you are the pearl! We all owe you so much but you may be sure you have our love. It was so exciting to hear about your adventure and about the wondrous performance by David. I got my seat early in chat that night and pretty well stayed silent so I could relish DJA’s translation of your very welcome words. Thank you so much, dear Gladys — God bless!

  39. mlpb3 said

    Gladys – We are blessed by God to be a blessing to others. Thanks so much for being our blessing! What would you do without you! I am so glad you have become like David and blossomed with confidence! So happy for you! Martha

  40. MT said

    ♥ {{{Gladys}}} ♥ I wish I could hug you in person.

  41. sweetonda said

    Gladys, “Sometimes thing happen for a reason”…Amen to that! I’m so glad you have these opportunities to see David in action and feel of his goodness and light. We are also blessed through you. Nothing is by chance, and now we have a Christmas concert to look forward to through your beautiful eyes! How much luckier can we get!

  42. gladys1961 said

    uhhhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuuu I have a secret, I have a secret

    The McKinley sent me the official list of songs at the event. No more speculation.
    I think I have a guardian angel next to me, but my guardian angel is alive.

    I made a request and they sent me an e-mail

  43. djafan said

    Abrra, Bebe, Angelica,

    Thank you for getting this up so fast. I’m still in shock at all that transpired. I love love the participation by all. David’s fans from all over the world together supporting and loving this special young man.

    Welcome to all the new posters and lurkers. Please stick around because I think this is only the beginning of much more to come IMO.

    I tell you this is no coincidence. I refresh and Gladys just received another gift!!! The official playlist. Hmmmmm.

  44. mlpb3 said

    Gladys – Thats fantastic! Good work!

  45. ray said

    this may be just me,but i think dacid had something to do with gladys being there,and geting the play list,just his way of giveing us a peek,and letting us know he is stil performing ,he did eay he would fined a way to keep in touch,my guess she will be alowed ar xmass also ,hope i am right.

  46. Woo Hoo! Gladys! You do have a Guardian Angel and you are an Angel to us. Love Archie fans or is it DavidBalboa fans:))

  47. Dayzee said

    Gladys, thanks to your tenacity in applying for a seat at the concert of our dreams, we had an awesome Saturday night at The Voice Unplugged. What a gloomy time it would have been for us had you not been so persistent. You deserve all of our thanks. Instead of being in the dark, we were bathing in the glow of your experience. It was like Christmas, opening one present after another. Some surprises, some disappointments (no pics). It was like the 4th of July with blossoming fireworks (salsa? boxing?) It was the bestest holiday ever.

    Loved seeing Ray’s comment above. It was perfect.

    Very nice write up from a fan about how Gladys’ chat made her happy. Her faith restored that David WILL be back to do music. :)

    other though here, aren,t the mormons very strict on what the missionares can listen to,maybe church music only,and then david comes along, and they are alowed to listen to his misic,so who is influencing who here LOL

    Gladys ~ I am so happy you had the opportunity to see David sing at the concert/devotional and so grateful that you shared that wonderful experience with all of us. It means the world to us to know that he was so happy. I can only imagine the joy you had witnessing his dancing, kick-boxing, shadow boxing, and singing an Al Jolson song. That Archie Balboa sure did have some tricks up his sleeve for the audience ;) . Hope we get to see some of that in 2014!

    Thanks to everyone at The Voice for taking us all along for the ride. <333

    Gladys I want to tell you how grateful I am to you too for sharing with us so quickly on Saturday night. It was so much fun to wait with all the rest and see you appear with a “hola!” What a hoot is was that night waiting on the edge of our seats in acute anticipation for you to type in Spanish and then came the translation by dja…BAM!!! He what? Danced salsa like never before? Sang Dixie with a white hat and shadow/kicked box like a wild man? haha. omgosh that was the funnest, funniest time in chat ever!! I was too excited to sleep after and couldn’t get the smile off my face or out of my heart. I was at a hotel in New Orleans that night for a wedding but I made sure I brought my laptop and hopped on as soon as I could. By then there were 54 and it was a party!! Missed you Sky! It makes me so happy to know he is happy and still has the music in him (and the rhythm.) ;) Gracias to Gladys, and Dja for reporting and for everyone else who added to the excitement by being there together that night. Now we have the Christmas concert coming too and am hoping some video comes from that if it’s an outdoor event.

    Ray thanks for an awesome quote. MT, loved your post and how you break it all down for us. I concur!

    To all the new posters,

    it2

  56. Gladys – I would like to thank you again, along with Gisselle for sharing your David experience and the joy it brought. You made a ton of Archies happier :)

    As David is inclined to say: you are also, “Que caliente”! (shakes head) Only David, lol

  57. betsy said

    Gladys I am still laughing at how ninja you were running to the bus after. :))))

    Thanks for the chat update guys. So fast.
    Gladys – Gracias.

    Late in commenting – I spent too much time looking at the top pix with the hat!!!! Is that Archie Balboa????? I want to hear him sing and see him salsa and kick/shadow box and just be his awesome self!!!! And I want to catch that hat when he throws it into the audience!!!!!
    OMG Gladys I am so happy you got to see David. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us.
    Unplugged was so much fun!!! Thank you everyone for the translation and this lovely post.
    Looking forward to your recap, Gladys.
    Then we wait for Christmas. Hope that performance is in public – outdoors – so we can have some videos.

    In the midst of all this excitement we are getting another David Archuleta gift!!!!! And the Rainbow remix was David’s idea!!!!!

    Joy Yap ‏@JoyYap
    @kariontour who come up with the idea of remix version of Rainbow? Jon Daza? David?

    24m Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @JoyYap it was D’s idea because our driver Sherwin had a remix of Rainbow that even @jaydurias had never heard … http://m.tmi.me/y9PI9

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @koneyfod4ever @kimak @DavidArchie Not today but sometime soon.

    jon daza ‏@JonDaza
    Wow!!! So many tweets, RTs & favorites! Archies are d best! Hugs to everyone!

    It’s David! Very soon! http://instagr.am/p/Q1u_FqpATT/

  62. MT said

    Dja,
    I can’t wait to see the MV of Rainbow remix!

    You know, we’ve all been so excited by the clip of him dancing in it and assume there will be dancing in the full version. But … has anyone ever actually asked Kari or Jon Daza if he does actually dance in the video? Because we really can’t be sure.

    I, of course, am hoping for lots of moves from David. *fingers toes and eyes crossed* LOL Dance, David, Dance!

    (Still hoping for a pic of him on stage in Chile. I’d love just one shot of that “on stage smile” he gets, and that “look” he gets when he’s confident and know’s he’s got you in the palm of his hand.)

  63. djafan said

    MT, I can’t either. So excited for this right now. I need a David visual with all the Chile happenings lol

  64. Gayle122890 said

    What?! Is this our David?! Wow..I’m trying to imagine Gladys’ description of that performance. Gladys, you are truly fortunate to have been there. Thank you for everything! It’s all so exciting and at the same time frustrating that we can’t see for ourselves. :(. I can’t wait to see him again soon! And it’s great that we may not have to go without David at Christmas time. Ray, I’m with you. I get the feeling that Gladys has a special connection with David. Ever since the “hello to Gladys from Argentina” from that chat a while back (I’m not good with dates). So exciting! I’m smiling now…

  65. mlpb3 said

    Gayle – I’m also with you and Ray. I believe Gladys is known to David and the people there at the mission, especially the Centro Jas. They probably know what she is doing with the info she gets at these events. I believe it is all with their blessing; maybe the missionaries don’t but they have a lot more access to the internet and know what is out there concerning Elder Archuleta. What an exciting time for her! I am looking forward to the Christmas concert! Martha :)

    Some books say that an earthquake comes, when the layers of the earth are accommodating. On October 13, I had all my layers in place, but after 19.30 pm, all my layers were everywhere, even I think I left some forgotten in Chile.
    I also remember when david said! QUE CALIENTE (that hot), he meant that there was very hot.
    David never lies and in fact, the general situation of everyone attending the place was as David said, hot.
    Girls who were with me, they were members of the church, I think they are still looking for their jaws.
    I still I have this silly grin on my face, I look like the Joker, my smile is drawn.

    hahahahaha I laughed because I still remember, that came a lot of girls, members of the church, to sit beside me and I was in the middle, they wanted to sit together. I had chosen the best place, I had no one with big head before me, my view of the stage was perfect. The concert was about to begin. They asked me very kindly, Ma’am can run some places??
    I said NO
    hahahah sorry, but that was my reaction. I said it with such emphasis that they were amazed.
    I ran 6 blocks down the street Greece, to get that special place, hahahahah but that’s another story.

  67. mlpb3 said

    Gladys – you are making me laugh!! “I think they are still looking for their jaws!” lol! That would be me, being asked to move down and saying NO. haha Thanks Gladys for your very descriptive recollections! Martha

  68. djafan said

    Gladys eres increible. Gracias por la platica anoche :)

    More David goodies!!!!!

    marciami ‏@marciami
    @kariontour Is there ANY chance that we might ever have a DVD of NA? At one time I think someone in Manila said it would eventually happen:)

    @marciami they are trying to work out details and all the paperwork on their end but we have not seen any final paper for approval! Yet! :)

    I just went to sign the Birthday card for David. Please go NOW if you are reading this? http://www.groupcard.com/c/rMT48U8t4ti

    Shelley is asking that everyone sign before 12 midnight Central Time (midnight CDT), Saturday, October 20th, to give enough time for binding into a book, sending to fan address and further sending to South America. Thanks for your support!

    Sweet, patient, perservering, and a believer in miracles…. that would be “our” Gladys. ♥ Thank you dear friend for making Sat., Oct. 13,2012 happen for us!! Gladys, you have made a lot of us believers in miracles, also. I’m thinking, and hoping, that Mr. David Archuleta had better be darn good and ready to share his dancing skills, his improved voice, and his Spanish accent with us not too terribly far into the year 2014!! And I’m also in agreement that Gladys is ‘known’ by TPTB in Chile.

    Thank you to our admins here for keeping us current… and happy :)

    Please, everyone, sign the b-day card NOW!! Maybe one of you admins could send a group e-mail to those whose addresses you have.

    Hi all,

    Gladys !!! So happy for you and so greatful that you shared your experience and spazzing (so bad) with us, I now believe that miracles do come true and good thing comes to those who waits, thank you Gladys. Thanks to all the gals at the voice who make all this happened, it’s nice to know that David is in his elements and more.

    It was such fun on Saturday that many were come out and “play” haha ..we didn’t even have a vid,a pic but the excitement just off the chart !!! we have to be really prepare mentally/physically haha for 2014.

    When David comes back !! in fact no need for him to make a new album !! just go on tour and sings all those songs he sang on Saturday I will be very very happy lol just imagine white hat, kick boxing, kneeling down :shock: haha can’t wait.

  88. #84 Fenfan haha I start to think the same as you!!! Abrra and JR are out to get us !!! whatever we had done to them haha must be that “caliente guy” mess up with their senses…he’s dangerous.!!!

    #86 JR, I dare you !!! post it !! lol we won’t give in..nooo nevahh

    haha Ray having trouble getting past that guy in the hat myself! He is so darn distracting :))
    My first visit to “The Voice” was because someone told me to come here for some awesome pictures,ODD therapy (and articles of course). Boy was she ever right!

    Abs, those pics are really awesome.gahhh
    81.JR, this one was my scream saver , before the hat pic. May have to keep alternating between the 2, or 22 or 222 or 22222222……..endless gorgeousness and endless selections keep me busy switching around ~sigh~.

    I love that face he made in #82. Who can resist is right! think that one is such a gem because I have never seen him make a face like that!! haha so darn cute.

  92. jackryan4da said

    SKY – to optimize the gorgeousness factor of your screensaver, why not do an autoplay of your most fave pix? In that way the rotation would be automatic. Just go to Control Panel, then Personalization, then click on DEsktop Background. It will allow you to create a folder where al lyour well loved photos can go & rotate as your screensaver :)

  93. MT said

    82. JR
    Someday he will look at a girl he likes like that and she will keel over. LOL He may have to revive her!

  94. jackryan4da said

    MT – if he likes her, me thinks he will be more than happy to revive her! :)

  95. mspoohbear said

    Listening to @DavidArchie’s songs while eating lunch and reading The Voice…….what else can I ask for????

    Gaaahhhh! Those awesome pictures are killing me! Can’t concentrate on my work! Worth saving for autoplay for screen saver (good suggestion JR!).

    JR, did I read it right? You have more pictures?!! You’re holding back on us? Why? Afraid of giving us all heart attacks! LOL!

  96. skydancer1x said

    92 oh boy!! :) thanks JR, sure will be a lot easier to switch out my gorgeous Davids that way. (I am so clueless about what I can do with the computer)so nice of you to walk me through, thank you♥

    I am ready for another video how about you guys?:))) ready for Rainbow! bring it on! woo hoo!

  97. sweetonDA said

    Just mailed off a Halloween card to a certain special Elder in Chile.

    I remember David saying he liked being Dracula on Halloween so I got a card that has Dracula’s top ten favorite songs.

    1O. You’re So Vein
    9. Fangs For The Memories
    8. You’ve Got A Fiend
    7. You Don’t Bring Me Plasma Anymore
    6. Bat’s The Way (Uh-Huh, Uh-Huh) I Like It.
    5. You Light Up My Crypt
    4. Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Old Oak Casket
    3. Don’t Go Stakin’ My Heart
    2. Stranglers In The Night,
    and
    1. He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Donor

    I think my favorite song title is #3, except he’s already sent an arrow through that heart many times. :)

    Anyway, hope he gets a laugh out of it!

    Abrra and JR, you are going to kill off this fan base with all those goodies. Keep it up! :)

    I’m headed to Vegas for a few days and will be taking my laptop in case we get that new MV of RAINBOW. I think the whole fan base is waiting for that one. Dancing David…bring it on!

    Ray, I also love your quote and have to totally agree!

  98. jackryan4da said

    Re MV Rainbow — hmmmm yes it will come out soon BUT not that soon as being suggested… And that’s all I could say about that.

    Just managing expectations…

  99. MT said

    94. JR haha Good point!

    Sky,
    Rainbow … yes … i am ready, ready ready. :D

    SweetonDA,
    I LOLed at the card. It should give david a good laugh.

    JR,
    So we’re not gonna have a Raibow this weekend? Awwww Well …. I guess I can wait if I have to. (haha Like i have a choice.)

  100. MT said

    98 JR
    Oh, wait! No MV, but how about that remix song? Do we not get that either when it was suggested? Maybe they’ll release the remix prior to the MV? Maybe?

  101. jackryan4da said

    “SOON” and “VERY SOON” are relative terms. My “soon” could mean tomorrow. Others may mean next week… Still, others could mean a lot later than that :)

  102. SandyBeaches said

    We might soon see pictures or a video from last February, but a picture from 8 months later would be awesome and so where David is right now.

    SB

  103. jans11 said

    97 LOL SweetonDA, that’s the same card I sent to him last week! Sounds like we kind of know David and his Dracula days! haha Like I told David, my husband also used to dress up as Dracula and the kids loved it. It is a very cute card, so he’ll get two big laughs!

    Also, I’m leaving for Vegas on Saturday! How ironic! Have fun and win lots of money!

  104. bebereader said

    SweetonDA and Jans,
    I think David will love that Halloween card; it will probably make him laugh out loud.

    Safe travels to Vegas, to both of you!

    Please sign David’s birthday card if you haven’t done so already:
    http://www.groupcard.com/c/rMT48U8t4ti

    His birthday is in December but Shelley is compiling all the birthday greetings by October 20, midnight Central to allow enough time to get a physical copy of the card to Chile before David’s birthday.

    Abs, JR, I finally figgered out why your screamcaps are so unsettling; it’s their size. They are so life-like. THUD!

  105. sweetonda said

    Jan11, That’s funny! When I bought it I wondered how many of that one he would receive. I bet we aren’t the only ones that sent that card. Great minds think alike when it comes to D.

    My visit to Vegas is for business. :( I might find some time in the evenings for some fun if I’m not to tired from being in meetings all day. I’m not much of a gambler but I might drop a quarter or two and see what happens. :) I’ll be leaving Saturday afternoon so we’ll just miss each other. It would be great to have time to meet up though. You have a great time too.

  106. jans11 said

    Thanks, Abrra, I signed it last week. One way I look at it, is, on his next birthday he will only be gone a about 3 more months! I’m always analyzing, dang it!!

    Sweetonda, I’m not a big gambler either, but we have fun out there. A group of us have went out there since back in the 80′s. The group has gotten smaller, but we still have fun. Who knows, that one quarter you play may win you a bunch! That’s the way some stories go. We’ll be getting there about 4, so it’ll be a total miss! It costs $11 a day to use my computer so I’m doing the Iphone thing. Won’t be able to get on chat this week, but I can keep up with the comments.
    By the way, I have to win because the residents at work told me to “win lots of money” and I don’t want to let them down! hahaha

    So glad the Halloween cards are getting sent. Thank you ladies!

    I’m so happy to see that the Christmas concert is confirmed. I wonder if it will be outdoors or indoors. Maybe we’ll get a glimpse or two. If we don’t, I’m ok with it because I’m so grateful that the powers that be are allowing David to continue performing and keeping that voice in shape and obviously honing his craft like Ray said. And who knows, just maybe those powers are allowing Gladys from Argentina to attend so we can have a glimpse through words to let us know everything is right on course :)

    Abrra,
    Nice scream caps! And yes, #6 definielty has the “Elvis lip curl”. I think the last one gets my vote for best of the bunch. :)

    Dja,
    “Thank you JR for trying to manage our Rainbow expectations. But I see this and I want it yesterday!”

    I know what you mean. I keep holding on to my patience with both hands but it keeps slipping away. I have to keep chasing after it! :)

    Hey Martha..I just tweeted you.

  112. collegemom said

    Oh-oh! I am leaving for a trip Santiago/Buenos Aires/Rio on the 28th – now I have to keep my eyes open in Santiago just in case I stumble upon missionaries during my trip (organized tour). When my husband wanted to do this trip I just started laughing and he said isn’t that where David is? And I will be in deep trouble if we do stumble upon The Archuleta accidently in the middle of a tour group!

  113. collegemom said

    And where the heck does Gladys live? Argentina? Maybe I will stumble upon Gladys!

  114. djafan said

    Collegemom – May the stars align and give you a glimpse of The Archuleta :) And yes Gladys is in Argentina :)

  119. bebereader said

    With djafan’s help translating, I spoke to Gladys last night on Skype! What a fun time we had! Andrea joined us for a while, too. She’s adorable! Gladys’ voice is lovely and she understood me when I spoke to her. In English, of course. It’s no surprise that we spoke about last Saturday night’s event since I had questions like how did it feel to be there and hear his voice live, and did she feel like she was touched by an angel and what color was David’s suit, did his hair look short when pushed back, and what was her favorite song of the night and were the girls crazy about him and blah blah blah. Her recap will answer all these questions.

    It was 3:00 am Eastern by the time we hung up but it was worth every second! Te Amo, Gladys! xoxoxo

  120. stenocruiser said

    Abrra — love the card and of course David will also. Wonder if he’ll have a tear when he reads it like I did. Miss him so.

  121. stenocruiser said

    Bebe — so exciting. You ladies must have had the time of your lives talking together in real time about David and actually being able to see each other. I will never get over how amazing technology has become. Love all the questions you asked and looking forward to Gladys’ recap where she will no doubt answer those and more — can’t wait! Thanks for all this excitement.

  122. MT said

    Abrra,
    Awwww … The Halloween card is adorable. I know David will love it.

    Bebe,
    How great that you were able to talk to Gladys! Your questions give me butterflies. I can’t wait to read Gladys’ recap to get those answers and so many more.

  123. emmegirl14 said

    Perfect card Abrra!

    Bebe, thanks! :)

  124. skydancer1x said

    Abrra,
    Very cute Halloween card,I likey! and David surely will too. “but no day is” ….ahh so true.No day is the same with him away. (Gets me thinking about the vlog at the kitchen table at home with his sister being ‘violent’ with the pumpkin.) hahaha!
    Speaking of Halloween, I am certainly enjoying all the eye “treats”…. between you and JR ,I’m running out of Windex.

    HAH! Delayed by a request for my password, hehe! Gosh, what excitement is in store for us! I guess this must also have the Forevermore, I’ll Never Go and Rainbow music videos. Just a wild guess…

    Can’t also wait for Gladys’ recap! The excitement never stops. :)
