Posted by djafan on Monday, October 5, 2015
The BYU Spectacular is this Thursday and Friday. It looks like it’s going to be an epic event! Please let there be videos! A Periscope event would be nice :) I’ll be following twitter for any news. Let us know if you’ll be going in the comments and if you’ll be tweeting post your twitter handle so I can make sure I’m following you.

David Archuleta appearance may bring record crowd to BYU Spectacular
Some of BYU’s most popular performing groups will share center stage with David Archuleta at this year’s BYU Spectacular.
BYU Spectacular producer Michael Handley said there has never been such a high demand for tickets to the show.
“There’s a particular interest in David Archuleta,” Handley said. “That’s triggered the terrific box office response.”
Tickets went on sale in July, but the demand was so high that the BYU Alumni Association added 1,800 seats to each show — 3,600 extra seats total. This is the first time that a performance of BYU Spectacular has ever sold out, according to Handley.
The Marriott Center “empty”
Handley said BYU students and alumni are not the only ones excited about Archuleta’s performance in the BYU Spectacular.
“All of the performing groups have expressed interest in performing with David,” Handley said. “I think the audience will really enjoy seeing our groups interact with him.”
Most of the music in the show, including Archuleta’s music, will be accompanied by the BYU jazz band Synthesis. Archuleta will also sing with Women’s Chorus and Vocal Point. The Contemporary Dance Theatre will also perform alongside him.
The Cougarettes will dance while Archuleta sings “Glorious,” the song he debuted in the movie “Meet the Mormons.”
“This will be extremely memorable for the Cougarettes,” Overman said. “It’s a unique experience to work with someone as well known as David Archuleta.”
Handley said Archuleta seems enthusiastic about performing with BYU groups as well.
“He was extremely interested and excited at our request to pair him off with our ensembles,” Handley said. “This is an opportunity that I don’t think he normally gets.”
The Marriot Center “full”
BYU Spectacular is one of many school-sponsored events during Homecoming week. Some of the other popular events include True Blue Foam and the homecoming dances, all leading up to Saturday’s football game against the East Carolina Pirates.
The 2015 BYU Homecoming week officially begins Tuesday, Oct. 6, and ends Saturday, Oct. 10.

I’m really liking the new look of the official site. Every link has a unique header and it’s easy to navigate, clean and sharp. The new logo is simple but elegant and very recognizable. Click on the logo and go explore and comment!
“ALL IMAGES CREDIT TO DAVID ARCHULETA”
The header pictures are beautifully done.
Plenty to see and friendly layout for all. Hopefully we’ll see more traffic as the new BEGIN.ning starts up.

David posted this to all his social media. #DA2015 Is about to #Begin. And he is calling it a warmup, for what? Tour #DA2016?!
That picture is perfect.

RIP JENNIFER LEIGH BARRY
We want to give our condolences to the Barry family and friends for their loss. Jen was a kind and genuine person. I had the opportunity to meet her and spend some time chatting with her at the Sounds of David event. She was full of life, warm and friendly, so easy to talk to. But most of all you can see her spirit through her work. The links below are filled with Jen’s quotes, pictures and thoughts. Not only of David but all things of beauty through her eyes. You can also see the prayers and condolences from all over the world, including David. May she rest in peace.
“Because of David and because of David fans, I am where I am in my photography today!! I always tell David that he has truly been an inspiration to me in my photography and when he sent me a signed photo back that he was happy I was pursuing my photography and to keep it up, it made my day. However, David fans were also the ones that provided the amazing and positive feedback on my photos of David and non-David photos that helped me gain confidence in my abilities. Thank you for all your support!!!” ~Jennifer Leigh Barry

I contacted FOD and will be sharing any arrangements made with the family to show our support. I will update here as more information becomes available.
