Kalei quotes:

“His voice has matured and resonates with a silky, richness – it filled the entire venue and everyone was literally hypnotized and mesmerized by the depth of emotion in every single note.  He got a little choked up at the end of the Spanish portion, and it was all I could do to hold the phone steady and not cry  – even after all this time, David still has the power to move people to tears.”

“The bodyguards read the situation clearly and immediately surrounded David and Lupe and started moving them towards the exit.  Then panic ensued as people realized David was leaving, and the crowd went into full Reno Solo Tour GA (General Admission) mode – if you were at Reno, you know what I mean – and it took everything in my power not to get knocked down and trampled!  I was afraid for David – it was like the heyday of David Mania – and the bodyguards (I think there were six of them) linked arms and cut a path towards the exit and ushered David and Lupe into a waiting car where they were whisked off into the night, the red tail-lights getting smaller and smaller in the distance, and then he was gone.”

 And then there’s this:

Continuing my journey on the #northshore of Oahu with @climb_works . Such a blast! Nice people, and got me to try things I probably wouldn’t have before. Highly recommend checking out these awesome places in Hawaii! #CLIMB #hangingaround #zipline #iheartHawaii #SummerbreezeinNovember

David Archuleta: Creating The Shape of Things to Come

Posted by bluesky4home on Monday, November 17, 2014

Shapebluesky (1)Picture Edit: Abrra

It seems I am a “shape-changer”.

I have lugged three huge lawn bags filled to the brim, out to the trunk of the car: some things just don’t fit they way they used to. Whether this is good news or bad, I will leave up to the imagination.

However, I found myself thinking of this the other day in relation to DA and wondered how things “fit” for him since his return to the states, his career, and his family.

Like coming home to a “found” trunk of clothes, some fit, some don’t, and some old favorites look different. Each missionary coming home (or anyone returning from a two-year-life-changing-experience) finds that things “fit” differently than before. We are not the same shape as we once were. Neither within nor without. Each person takes their own amount of time to reassess, evaluate, and experiment on the “shape” they are in. Which things are the same? Which are different?

And most of all – What did I bring home with me that I especially want to keep?

DA brought back an even greater determination to be of service to his fellow-man. This is very evident in the choices he has made of when and to whom, he has performed. I do not believe that this means he devalues his “regular” fan base. I think it just means he has sharpened his focus.

We know that he has said how he loved being in the mission-field because the focus was not on himself. I can imagine that trying to keep the focus on what he is doing rather than on himself, is one reason he seems more distant to his fans. It is because of his own goals and what he needs to do in order to achieve them, not from anything the fans have done. We are a diverse and sometimes unwieldy bunch, and we love to focus on him. He on the other-hand, would rather not focus on himself, and he has only so much time and energy. I believe that his ability to balance the demands of a public life and a private one will improve with time and maturity. (When your public is your “buyer”, you simply have to connect!) Yet for now, he wants to be more private. I can respect that.

He is working. Goes to school. Writes music. Records. Travels. Spends time with family. Has told us in different ways that he is working with a variety of music. And… Although he has not sung to us (sigh), I do not believe that that means he does not want to.

It is just that for the first time in his life, he gets to try it his way, in his own time frame, without constant input from outside sources. What a challenge he has taken on! What courage it must take to push himself to stand musically in a place previously denied him, and to hear the echo of his own heart.

He will come. What he brings to us all then, will not be perfect. But it will be as perfect as he can make it. And it will come from as true a place as he can discover: it will be with as much of his soul as he can form into sound.

It will be the shape of things to come.

“It’s like a symphony, just keep listening.”

I cannot stop listening to the entries for the Sing-Along to Glorious contest. When I see one on Twitter, I am drawn to click.  I envy anyone brave enough to submit an entry. There are so many talented people out there.

“Glorious” is an inspirational song that speaks to everyone, any gender, race, religion, age or profession. That, together with the lovely catchy melody, sung by David, makes this song a favorite among fans.

This quote from YouTube:

“It’s the kind of song that when you hear it it’s like it’s always existed, you just can’t quite remember where you first heard it…” ~Ivy Clinger

Tomorrow, November 3 is the last day to submit an entry. Good luck to everyone who entered. I don’t know how they will come up with a winner. They are all winners, for participating, in my opinion.

I thought we could use this space to post some of them; they are all worthy of sharing. Here are the links to two Twitter pages where you can find some entries. You don’t have to have a Twitter account to check them out.

When you find one you’d like to share in comments, click on the video and then click on the word “YouTube” in the lower right of the video box to get to the YouTube page.  Then copy the URL on the top of the YouTube page and paste it right into your comment box. Do NOT click on playlists as there are too many steps to follow.

Here’s writer, Stephanie Mabey’s version:

There are times when you might feel aimless

But you will find that there is a purpose
It’s been there within you all along

And when you’re near it
You can almost hear it.

It’s like a symphony – just keep listening
And pretty soon you’ll start to figure out your part
Everyone plays a piece and there are melodies
In each one of us, oh, it’s glorious

You will know how to let it ring out
As you discover who you are
Others around you will start to wake up
To the sounds that are in their hearts

It’s so amazing
What we’re all creating

It’s like a symphony – just keep listening
And pretty soon you’ll start to figure out your part
Everyone plays a piece and there are melodies
In each one of us, oh, it’s glorious

And as you feel the notes build you will see

It’s like a symphony – just keep listening
And pretty soon you’ll start to figure out your part
Everyone plays a piece and there are melodies
In each one of us, oh, it’s glorious

David Archuleta & Social Media

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, October 7, 2014

glorious collage

Lots of unexpected activity these past couple of weeks, all things David Archuleta.  Here are some stats from social media.  I added winners Cook and McCreery, who is also attending college, for comparison.

David Archuleta Social Media Activity

David Archuleta & David Cook

Considering that Cook was the winner I think David has done more than pretty good without the AI machine.

David Archuleta & Scotty McCreery

Scotty has a label and all the backing from the country music community who are very supportive and yet you can see that David is holding his own without much effort on his part.

All this buzz has taken me by surprise and I’m fascinated with all these numbers.  I realize it’s not a science but it’s information that the media uses for measuring popularity.

So this got me wondering as to what social media all you commenters and lurkers use in relation to David Archuleta. So, lets take a poll!  You can pick one or several.

Here are the links to the David’s social media for your convenience.

School Daze

I wonder if he’s going.
I wonder if it’s true.
Is he going to matriculate?
To good ole BYU?

I wouldn’t blame him if he did.
Aim higher at some learning.
I wouldn’t blame him
Aim sky high!
Just don’t forget
Us down here yearning.

For the music and the VOICE
That in this moment
Made us weep,
The next rejoice.

Still waiting patiently,
Impatiently,
The next rejoice.

David Archuleta Going Overseas! “An Evening Of Music, Comedy, and Motivational Theater”

Posted by djafan on Wednesday, July 2, 2014

VLOG!!!

 

Idk why I couldn’t get the video up, but my little sister helped me. I know it’s not the most convenient place to do a video, but oh well.

Thanks to all of those who tuned into the Face2Face Chat last week! if you missed it go here:

English: youth.lds.org
Español: jovenes.lds.org

Going to Costa Rica this weekend for a project that you’ll hear more about later, and then off to the Middle East and Africa to go see the Airforce Troops and do some singing for them. :)

Pardon the razor burns if you notice them. I had a bad shave this morning and wasn’t able to get the job done properly.

Utahns To Entertain Troops Overseas in “An Evening of Music, Comedy and Motivational Theater”

Dan Clark speaks to the troops all over the world and has performed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Africa.
This time he was invited by Armed Forces Entertainment to put together a 90 minute show. So he invited David Archuleta and Jason Hewlett to join him in “An Evening of Music, Comedy and Motivational Theater.”

The format is a variety show where Dan shares one of his world famous stories from the Chicken Soup For The Soul book series, that sets up a song performed by David Archuleta, followed by comic relief in a five minute bit by Jason Hewlett.

There are messages throughout, dealing with suicide prevention, divorce prevention and resiliency issues.

David’s song list includes “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, “Take Me Home” and John Lennon’s “Imagine”, mixed with his own pop hit “Crush” and more!

Jason Hewlett pulls the funniest faces and impersonates Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Adell, among others.

They leave on July 8 and perform for our combat troops 18 times on bases throughout Afghanistan, and in Kuwait, Bahrain, Ethiopia and Djbouti.
