Back to the Future ~ Unplugged With David Archuleta

Here at The Voice we offer a chance to chat and watch David sing on our UNPLUGGED channel on Livestream. Every Saturday night fans gather together to share the enjoyment of watching David Archuleta perform and talk about his career in videos. For me, it might be the single most enjoyable part of the week.
We have fun discussing each video. It brings David to life again in a special way. Recently, we watched an AOL sessions interview where David talks about the upcoming events he had planned since the American Idols Live Tour ended the previous summer of 2008. He was excited at the prospect of having his own tour to support his new eponymous CD, David Archuleta.

While watching the interview, I suddenly got the idea to tell David ( talking to my computer screen is normal, right? ) about what lies ahead for him in the future. As if to reassure him that his career was solid and the upcoming solo tour was just the beginning of a grand adventure for him and his fans! It was such a spontaneous reaction to the interview that everyone in the chat room joined in. I decided to copy our chat log with permission from all those who participated.

When you consider all we said, it only scratched the surface of his accomplishments. The best part is that we have pictures and video of all of his events to carry us though these times when he is on his mission. I want to invite everyone to stop by our UNPLUGGED channel http://www.livestream.com/thevoiceunplugged. Or just click on hot mess hair on the upper left sidebar. 

David is always a great host!

    Abrra, what a fun, ingenius post! :) David sure has accomplished a lot in 5 years! Just think of what he’s going to do when he gets back! I’ll bet he has some of that all figured out too. Thank you guys for chat to keep us going til he gets back! ♥

    #2014…it’s going to be fun!!!!

  2. funfee said

    Abrra, I love Unplugged! Always look forward to Saturday nights and am upset if for some reason I miss one! Thank you so much for all you do for us – it means such a lot. Only 1 week to go now until David’s new album :)

  3. This is absolutely brilliant and wonderful and timely! Even though NMHF will soon be with us, it’s been a LONG year – and this reminds us who we’re dealing with exactly, so as he might say, fist raised, smile beaming: “Endure to the end!” Thx for posting such a wonderful. lovely, hope-inspiring thing!

  4. SandyBeaches said

    I can hardly wait for more of his dancing while singing. He will be a phenomenal dancer. That’s when the roof gets lifted and may we be there! Some singers can dance, with lots of help from a choreographer, but David will pass them all right at the starting gate.

    He will be a famous singer who dances like no other. Do we really know of anyone so artistically inclined?

    The MGR of David dancing is a great reminder.

    Abrra,
    This is great!! Chat is always so much fun.

    No way could David have imagined all the amazing things he would do when he was only 17 years old. And we could still add so much more to the list. Like: He will do the cutest commercials ever in Asia. (Vangie) And he would attend concerts as a fan and be invited on stage to sing with some of his favorite singers and bands. And he would meet and fanboy over one of his favorite singers. He would have audiences jumping up and down and singing along to one of his own songs, ZG, and he would be referred to as “The Voice.”

    SB
    “I can hardly wait for more of his dancing while singing. He will be a phenomenal dancer. That’s when the roof gets lifted and may we be there!”

    Yes!!! I can’t wait till he really lets loose. I definitely want to be there. :D

  6. bebereader said

    Arghhhh! I was an hour late that night and missed this dialogue! I can imagine all the fun you guys had coming up with David’s accomplishments, one after the other. When you string them together like this you can really see how busy he’s been since Idol.

    I guess you can call me a chat junkie but I will just have to get there a little earlier next time. haha

  7. Abrra, Back to the Future. Love the concept and the trip down Memory Lane. thanks to those that added the accomplishments. Enjoyed Unplugged the few times I’ve Joined in. Thanks for all you do to organize the videos and pictures.

    Thanks Angelica for the St Patricks Day post. The Medley line “Did I disappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth” kept replaying in my mind all day……..and now again today. Just love David’s accent on that line. :)

  8. Dayzee said

    The timeline for the listing of those accomplishments was only 8 minutes. We could have gone on for hours, but I think that was pretty good coverage for an extemporaneous chat. I’m sure fans can add a long list. Great fun. While remembering what has happened in the last five years we look forward to what is to come. There is no limit.

  9. djafan said

    Abrra, I’m really excited about this!!!!!

    To think of the years we’ve been getting together on Saturday nights and the enjoyment we continue to have for David Archuleta speaks volumes. So many things he’s done. So many ideas, sharing, and supporting each other not only as fans but as friends have been so helpful in getting through the wait.

    Oh David, I believe you’ve only shared the surface of all your talents.

  10. djafan said

    We have some requests for David’s album. If anyone would like to be a donor email thevoiceda@gmail.com (copy/paste this address into your email) and we’ll email you the address of requester.

    Thanks all for coming by to comment :) as MT said ” we could still add so much more to the list” . I challenge anyone to pick any one week in David’s schedule and try to keep up with him.

     photo 55.jpg

    For one so tender in years, he is a seasoned professional as an entertainer.

    In my mail today came a “new” video that was just uploaded of Como La Flor. It’s always nice to see him sing this song!


    fansofdavidvideos Como La Flor in Albuquerque, NM. March 14, 2009
    This video was taken by Emily and was sent in by her mom Martha. It was discovered to exist 4 years after it was taken!

    Please do join us on Saturday evenings!

    What a fun 8 minutes and an amazing list of David’s past accomplishments! Thanks Abrra for this!! :)

    I actually stopped in to chat Sat. but I was so tired from birthday celebrating (another year, more age on the body) that I just listened to David and watched the chat as it was going on. I was too tired to even pick a color for my login. ;) I really miss chat. It’s been far too long since I logged in. I guess I need to put real life in the background on Sat. night and chat (after all, what’s more important?!).

    I’m loving that we only have a week to lift-off for NMHF!!! I’ve heard people saying that they aren’t going to buy it because it has too many previous songs. WHATEVER!!!!! That may be so, but there are going to be some mighty fine photos of a mighty fine looking dude between those covers! Besides, the old songs don’t ever get old if you listen carefully. You can always pick out a new little bit of something that you’ve not heard before…jmo. And, there’s always the 2 new ones. I haven’t let myself listen to HFO snippets other than once…. I’m waiting (patiently? NOT).

    SB– I, too, can’t wait for the man and his moves *sigh*

  16. Grammyj said

    One of David’s big accomplishments that wasn’t mentioned was that David wrote a book. I’m sure he never thought he’d do that at such a young age. We really could keep going numbering more of David’s accomplishments. I wonder what new things he will accomplish when he returns from his mission.

  17. Abrra said

    Great one Grammyj! Keep them coming :)

  18. emmegirl14 said

    Chat, it’s good for what ails ya, even if you are just listening. Maybe someday I will get my streaming issue resolved. Love the spontaneous exchange on his doings. His schedule for 4 years was exhausting, he never let it show.

    And speaking of the Dougie, wonder when we are gonna get the “official” video?

    tawna, I buy not only for his music, but because I want to support him, period. I want him creating music and performing for us for a long, long time.The cost of an album is like forfeiting one time eating out, well worth it to me :)

    “His schedule for 4 years was exhausting, he never let it show. ” I can’t even imagine what he had to do to keep up. I am willing to bet there was so much more he had to turn down due to lack of time.

    Abrra

  20. MT said

    I’ll bet he never imagined that his fans would support his charities, or how many people he would help and how much joy he would bring to so many lives. (See above pic. He is happiness personified.)

    Happy Belated Birthday, Tawna!

  21. Dayzee said

    Abrra. thanks for all the great pics. You are a master decorator. The illustrations of your article showing David’s 5 year journey were perfect. The happy one at #19 makes me smile. But the intense one at #13 is killer. Takes a while to scroll down past that one.

    A coworker was telling me she collects autographs and has 27 autographs of famous people. I was not impressed, since I have about that many of a famous person.

  22. Abrra said

    Dayzee

    Those pictures are screen caps from his videos. My obsession is screen caps haha

     photo A1o5WcpCMAAUnxk.jpg
    ( I think this is Naree’s? no watermark, so I am not sure)

    I have to admit that I have so many pictures that I can’t find anything haha I had to go to Google Images for some of the ones in the article.

    Credit goes to Angelica for the great lead picture of David inside a crystal ball. She never fails to amaze with her creativity.

    I have all my autographed items framed and hanging on my wall. I am blessed by good friends that got some of them for me when I could not attend an event. I cherish them all.

  23. tawna21 said

    Emmegirl, that’s why I have 3 cd’s ordered and a download ordered! It’s the support… that’s what we’re here for! :)

  24. betsy said

    His book, which I love, NEVER entered my mind till now! That’s crazy!

    I was driving home from work tonight, pretty late, and I was listening to an old cd of David’s idol songs. I love it all. But Angels… There is something so golden about it. I forgot I was driving on ice, and soon I was home safe and sound :)

    Dear David, did you know when you sang Angels 5 years ago that you would record it and sing it hundreds of times and people would still love it every time? <3
    (David Archuleta Angels, About 64,700 results)

  25. betsy said

    Also, I just saw this on facebook. My stepdaughter posted it. Her husband is a musician and his mother teaches it.
    It reminded me of the scholarship. <3

    WHY WE TEACH MUSIC

    Not because we expect you to major in music;
    Not because we expect you to sing all your life;
    Not so you can relax, not so you can have fun;

    But so you will be…human. So you will recognize beauty. So you will be sensitive. So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world. So you will have something to cling to. So you will have more love, compassion, gentleness, good–in short, more life!

    Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live?

    I love my Saturday nights in Unplugged whenever I can make it! The videos are great but the best part is spending time with all those who come to chat. We have some hilarious times and I love the immediacy and intimacy of chatting in real time.

    SB,

    “I can hardly wait for more of his dancing while singing. He will be a phenomenal dancer. That’s when the roof gets lifted and may we be there! Some singers can dance, with lots of help from a choreographer, but David will pass them all right at the starting gate.”

    He is such a natural. Hoping to be there with many of you when that roof is raised! I can’t even  photo 1sm120fear.gif When I think of how he can morph and surpass our expectations time and time again with each new tour. What the heck do we do then, hah?

  27. djafan said

    Betsy, that’s beautiful. Music should be part of the core of subjects taught at kinder along with a foreign language.

    This last year is going to be tough. We miss him so much and are so ready for his return. But we will wait because he is so worth it.

    David planned so many unexpected gifts that I’m always on the what more could be in store for us. He put a team together that I think is doing great.

    Happy Birthday, Tawna! Have a wonderful day!

    David, did you think you would be starring in Stadium of Fire?

    Did you think you would sing at the Capital for the Fourth of July?

    Abrra, love all the pics you are posting! Never too many pics! :)

  30. bebereader said

    Betsy,
    That was the week of inspirational songs on Idol. David instinctively knew to chose Angels. By that time in the competition I already knew that I would enjoy any song he sang because i loved his voice. But I never expected to be so affected by the song choice, lyrics and his very powerful performance.

    I remember that night very well; I felt like my heart was being lifted out of my body and taken on a ride soaring through space. When the song was over, David very gently placed it right back. Crazy, but true. I knew that night he was something very special.

    #27, look at that guy

  33. Happy Birthday Tawna!! Greeted you on FB, but wanted to join in here too!!

  34. betsy said

    I had a dream about David last night.
    I walked into a room somewhere and he was just standing there singing with about 20 people standing around him. He was in the middle of a circle. His voice was so beautiful, so perfect that I started crying. He looked over at me, said hi, and continued singing whatever that song was. (An unfamiliar song to me)
    I just remember how beautiful the whole thing was.

  35. fenfan said

    Hey I missed that back to the future chat! Wish I was there!
    “10:37 PM Emifriend: You will do a photo shoot in your undershirt” – my favorite “prediction”. hahaha
    I love Unplugged chat; so much fun talking with everyone.

  36. Dayzee said

    Happy Birthday Tawna!! I see Bebe brought beautiful balloons and Djafan invited David to sing for you. Great party!

    Grammy, can’t believe we missed the book. I’m pretty sure each of us has at least one well-worn copy within reach. Haha. Thanks for the reminder.

    I agree with you Bebe! I didn’t even want to post it LOL I don’t like the teasing, especially when he is gone and we miss him so much.

    I hope it’s a full body shot ;) when we see the whole picture.

    I am extra grumpy today LOL I have had to abandon Firefox because videos will not play. I do not like change, ( ask Angelica haha) but I think I have Google Chrome set up the way I like :)

  44. djafan said

    Bebe, ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!! OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!! I GOT THE CHILLS, THE STOMACH FLIPS, WOW ALREADY WOW!

    Abrra, They don’t have to ask Angelica about your issues with change, they can ask me hahahaha

    Dayzee, What Child Is This, my morning starter last several days. Get to work sit in car until over. Previous to that one was Ave Maria. I tell you he has hypnotized us.

    Grammy, not only do I have several copies of COS, hard cover, soft cover (with NY best seller on front), downloaded on ipad so it goes with me wherever I go ♥ I’ve read it 5 times and am constantly going back to different sections, it is a great great book.

    The other would’ve never guessed David did moment was at the Selena tribute in Texas. David singing with Mariachi???!!! I think I stopped breathing for several seconds. It is hard to sing with Mariachi and he nailed it, I mean out performed that. I showed my parents and they couldn’t believe it. They are also waiting for the Spanish album :)

    Buckles my knees every time.

    The question is, would you know it was David if you didn’t know it was David?? haha

    I know that hair anywhere!

    For those NA fanatics, we are skipping a week of Nandito Ako chat tonight and starting at Episode 1 next Tuesday night. (Marlie, sorry that this messes up your sleep schedule! haha) This is assuming, of course, that there is an interest. We’ve seen NA many times by now yet we still catch lines and scenes that we somehow missed. We have a ball each week! So I’m game if you are. It is a pleasure to watch the miniseries with you!

  51. MT said

    Bebe,
    Yep, We’d know that hair anywhere. :) And I love watching NA each week with you guys. If you’re game, I’m in for another round.

    And just to make you all smile, Here’s another little something David did that helped make this day very special for one little boy.

    Abrra: #13–Golden David!! GAH!! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!

    Sorry I missed the part of chat where you listed the things David would accomplish. I would like to add my own thought to that list: You will mend damaged spirits, you will heal broken hearts!

  59. jans11 said

    39…What a tease! I love puzzles! Hoping Kari sends us a piece a day! That should be interesting!

    51…I love Jonah! That is one of my favorite videos with him hunkering down to David’s song! haha Got a big hug from him at the concert in SLC! :) So precious!

    52…WOW!!! Just WOW!!!!

    53…My bowl is like yours! haha

    They are advertising Blake Shelton coming to KC next October! Maybe by the end of the year we will hear something about a David concert for next year! Can’t help but hope, can I? :)

    Since people are sharing the songs that they can’t get enough of lately, I’ll join in.

    Dja,
    Oh, no, I just saw that it was Shop Around and assumed it was David’s. LOL You know what they say about assuming. Duh! haha

    But I looked it up just now and I see that Jessica Sierra sang it during Season 4, but I can’t locate a video anywhere that will play.

    Sorry, Gladys, I tried to help find one for you, but couldn’t. :(

    I did find an IDF thread on it though, and everyone said David’s was better. :) Of course, it was a David thread sooo…. not surprising. LOL

  76. Angelica said

    Dja, I’m glad you got a response from Amazon and they are shipping it earlier. Do you have Amazon Prime? Maybe that had something to do with it. I have found it to be so worth the cost. Pays for itself in free movies, books, shipping and discounts. Tuesday I will be waiting at the

    I also got the email from Amazon telling me that I wouldn’t be getting the album until April. That’s cruel!

    Contact Amazon Suzy-Q. Let them know that is UNACCEPTABLE!

  83. jans11 said

    So far I haven’t got any email from Amazon! Hope I don’t get the negative one!

    Angelica, I love the puzzle! was fun… :)

  84. Abrra said

    I did the puzzle in 10 min. It was tricky with such an abstract subject. I like the idea of adding it to comments.

    We had a lively chat last night in Unplugged as we watched American Idol 12 . We were in agreement for the most part on who was best of the night, Candace Glover.

    And who was predicted to leave tonight, Lazaro Arbos.

    If Lazaro Arbos is still standing, I will believe that looks over talent are the cause. To quote Randy ” This is a singing competition!”

    They did a great job picking songs for the night. Devin Velez sang The Long and Winding Road, which was the only “David” song of the night. Devin did a nice job giving his best. He is my fav male singer this season.

    Ok enough about that. Now to the most important part of this comment.

    Dear David,
    Please keep working out while you are away?

  85. Dayzee said

    WOW sent me “despatch notification”. My order is on its way. Yayy!!

    I vote for this column as the best eye candy ever. Abrra has become dangerous throwing out those killer pics. Between David and the cats, I don’t know how we will ever attain a higher standard.

  86. MT said

    Abrra,
    I agree with your assessment of AI last night. Another one I really like is Kree. Both her and Candice have wonderful voices and great stage confidence. I think Lazaro may go home tonight too. I’m not sure he could handle learning and singing two or three songs if he makes it much farther. The competition and the judges comments will only get more difficult to handle as time goes on.

    Yep, David should definitely keep working out. It’s good for his heart … and ours. :)

  87. cq#DA2014 said

    I lurk everyday, but don’t comment often, but had to jump in and yep, hoping that David is keeping up working out…for his good health and that he would be able to tour and keep up with the crazy busy schedule he is going to have when he returns to his music career.Of course us fans health will be questionable after seeing all that gogiousness, lol.

  88. cq#DA2014 said

    oops should be gorgeousness!

  89. lynnella said

    Finally got a chance to jump in here. Don’t have much time to comment anymore, but still lurk everyday. I really like Angie Miller. She really connects with the music, much like another singer/songwriter/pianist I adore. Her voice is limitless in range, amazing. I hope, for his sake, Lazaro goes home tonight. He seems so fragile mentally. I don’t think he could handle another of Randy’s mean critiques. There’s constructive criticism and then there’s just plain mean. Randy was mean.

  90. cq#DA2014 said

    Regarding judges being just plain mean, I guessing that’s nothing compared to what they will incounter in the music industry…a rough, rough business.

  91. djafan said

    Cq,

    “Regarding judges being just plain mean, I guessing that’s nothing compared to what they will incounter in the music industry…a rough, rough business.”

    Ain’t that the truth. Nice to see you and Lynnella!

    I don’t watch AI, I do read about it at MJ’s and the manipulation tactics are alive and well on AI.

    I watched Devin’s performance and he has a nice enough voice but a run at the end of just about every verse is overkill IMO. A certain detachment from the song itself, singing not feeling. And yes I’ve been spoiled by the best interpreter of every song I’ve ever heard. The voice, passion and feeling is incomparable…IMO :)

    David Archuleta — “The Long and Winding Road”

    The second week of Beatles songs in Season 7 was a letdown after a string of stellar performances the week before. One exception: This vocal from David Archuleta.

    http://www.ydtalk.com/idolchatteryd/a-beatles-lesson-for-the-season-12-cast-from-those-who-did-it-well/

    Hear and feel.

  92. Angelica said

    Hey CQ and Lynnella!

    Dja, I had to watch that performance twice. I forgot how “masterclass” it was, as Simon put it. Every feeling molded lovingly into each word and the way he instinctively knows to hold a note just long enough before he releases it. He is amazing.

  93. jans11 said

    If Lazaro doesn’t go home it will because of the teenage girls that vote for him. I really like him, but can’t stand to see him hurt. And as they say, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! It’s a cut throat business…and David sure has held his own! I’m so proud of him! ♥

    Abrra, I sure like the way you keep up with the “important” business! Those pics are just so great! :) I’m sure he will keep up with his extra curricular activities! :)

  94. emmegirl14 said

    dja, “hear and feel” – I don’t know how many times I have watched that performance over the years and it still gets me.

    Angelica, “Every feeling molded lovingly into each word and the way he instinctively knows to hold a note just long enough before he releases it. He is amazing.”…. yes!

  95. bebereader said

    I saw part of Idol last night, enough to see Lazaro ruin one of my favorite Beatles songs “In My Life”. Poor guy. How stressful it must be in the top 9 and then to be criticized can’t be easy. But song choice is so important. I see that now.

    Candice’s performance of ‘Come Together’ impressed me!

    But Devin’s “Long and Winding Road’ fell short, IMO. I listened with an open heart and mind and tried not to compare but….David feels the song, tells the story of the song and makes sure we understand. Nobody compares.

    It’s very simple. The contestants should not sing any song that David sang on that show.

  96. Abrra said

    Watching idols results show. Can you say F I Xed? First Lazaro is safe, then Amber is in the bottom 3.

    Going home is—————-Paul Jolley. They will pick off the boys one by one.

    Abrra

  97. jans11 said

    Bebe, I agree that contestants should not sing any song that David has sang. Also, when David sings someone else’s song, he owns those too! :) He is just the best and can’t be beat, period! I compare everyone with David and no one even holds a candle to him! Therefore, the only music I buy anymore is David’s!!!!

    Abrra, I figured the teens would keep Lazaro. He seemed better tonight and I hope things work out for him, whatever that may be. It does take a lot of guts to go in front of 30 million people when you can’t talk, so he may do better than we think. The top 4 was the same top 4 as last week and that was unusual. My favorite is Kree. :)

  98. marlie7 said

    Strange American Idol results. But we’ve seen stranger.

    As for David singing The Long and Winding Road… David has an impeccable sense of timing, of when to soften the notes, when to crescendo, how to use his vibrato without in any way overdoing it. It is more than that he feels the music but that he interprets the emotion that needs to be in each note so perfectly (because I feel the music but am sure I wouldn’t know to interpret those notes, even if I didn’t sing like a frog). :-)

    It is a combination of feeling and technique. He know the technique for getting from a note exactly what he wants from it – and I think it is in his cells, because he seems able to do it without thinking about it. He knows.

    I could go on and on, but so could all of you. He’s just got it.

    Marlie7 #98
    Love what you said I don’t mind at all if you’ll go on and on lol and Oh how I wish I could express myself like you, after the chat I went back to search for TLWR by Devin !!! not impress..he tried too hard !! David did it “just right” well that’s why we all stuck here lol

    Dja, #91
    Thank you for the fantastic article, love it when peeps realized how brillient David was (is), his time to shine will certainly come !!

    Abrra,
    I have to say it again, thanks for all the pics you chose on this post, the arms, the chest oh heck everything !!! took a while to wade through them, and I love em all haha .

  100. Oh I completely forgot (blame it on Abrra’s pics), I wanna ask you all to put some votes in for David here http://www.worldmusicawards.com/#!vote/c1dlv there’re 3 catagories, Worlds best male artist, Worlds best live act, Worlds best entertainer of the year !! just click on that particular catagory and click his pic, love it when they include him in polls evertho he’s gone on a mission and I’m sure they know it, great way to promote David <3 thank you all :D
