“Unplugged and Un-wired” – Tawna’s Recap of David Archuleta’s Idaho Falls concert – Second Night

It was an awesome Friday night concert. I love the man that David brought back to the stage! To think that he almost didn’t is frightening.

He was so delightfully chatty and witty. He had some of the front row girls almost dead when he gave them a full-face, right-in-your-face, smile and point of his finger. On one song that he was introducing (I don’t remember just which one), someone from the side yelled “I love you, David!” and he chuckled, smiled that impish grin, looked over their way pointed his finger, twirled it, and in a melodic speaking voice sang something to the effect… “you say you love me and you don’t even know me”, he smiled bigger and continued on with his monologue. It was hilarious!!

CPUl3ulUsAExXd8It was so good to see him ‘unplugged and un-wired’. All of the band members had monitors, but David didn’t…. I guess it’s up to them to figure out what he needs and not him figuring out how to make his sound work with theirs. His hands were beautiful instruments in helping to create the feelings that he wanted us to feel with his songs. It was almost like they were pulling these emotions from his heart and spreading them to us. They are very graceful and fluid.

His new song “Numb”! Holy Toledo! If these words don’t explain to people where David has been, then nothing will. That includes the venue usher lady that was standing in the way as the crowd was trying to leave and asking me if I had ever seen him before… ME: “Oh yes! Several times.” LADY: “I wonder what took him so long to come back to the stage?” ME: silence, no words to say, dumbstruck…. then quickly as I moved on… “He just told us he needed to find himself, get himself to where he needed to be and now he’s there and he’s back!” I wanted to ask her if she hadn’t been listening to what he had been saying all night, but let it go. She must have been one of the gestapo watching for cameras and not paying attention to David. My husband even commented about how rude they actually were in the way they were treating people. It was very distracting to have them hovering like ravens in the corners and on the sides. But, they were just doing their jobs, I guess. You had to be there to really appreciate what I’m saying! I wish these venues would realize that these YouTube videos are an important part of promotion for these performers. If the venue were to come out with a professional video to sell, they would make a fortune in sales.


I think I could die now and all would be well. I have heard David sing ‘Everybody Hurts’ live and in concert. I’ve heard that glory note at the end sung in the flesh. I shall never want again!! I wish we had Friday’s version. To me it was just a little more ‘there’ (if you know what I mean) than the first night. I may have had some tears leaking from my eyes.

Oh, and the dance steps! The backward staccato steps! The backward slide steps! The foot pounding! The hunker-down! The hand pounding his heart! The ripping-his-heart-out-and-handing-it-to-us-in-an-open-hand gesture! The full of life and light smiles! The rambling and waving of hands — yes, he still does that! David is back!!

There were some emotions at one point as he referred to his mission. In my opinion, had David not gone on the mission, we would have had a different David singing to us. The man we have now is a performer and song-writer who will bless us in a much stronger way than he could have before. He is giving us his ‘real’ heart and soul because he has found and developed what is real to him.

It was so fun to see again some ‘old fan friends’ and to meet some that I’ve never met before! Archies Rock!!!!


Special thanks to Shelley for her fabulous photographs!

All About That Voice ~ David Archuleta by Skydancer

Posted by bebereader on Monday, July 27, 2015

fencefullcredit: Blythe Thomas

Along with David’s music, the catchy tune “All About That Bass”, Meghan Trainor’s mega-hit gets played the most on  my Iphone.  It’s just plain fun to sing along to! Thought I would parody the song into some silly lyrics as we wait for David Archuleta to return to the stage in his first solo concert in years! Woot! I, for one, am ready to get pumped!

Here’s a link to when Meghan performed the song live on The Today Show.

For us, of course, it’s not all about that bass.

Rather, it’s “All About That Voice”.

Listen to the song again and try to replace the lyrics with these:

Because you know it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice, no other!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice whoa brother!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice, oh mother!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice..voice..voice..voice


Oh yeah it’s pretty clear, we ain’t no twenty-two

But we can shake it, shake it, just like we used to do

‘Cause he’s got that vroom vroom that all the girls chase

and all the right notes, in all the right places


We see your pictures, don’t need no Photoshop

We know that you’re for real, (you’re on our desktop)

You’ve got the talent talent,  just raise it up,

‘Cause every note you sing is perfect from the bottom to the top


Now Aunt Madeline she told me don’t worry about the years

if you sit back and wait for life’s pleasures you’ll soon be in tears

So enjoy all you can while you can, and don’t have no fears

Just remember the joy that The Voice always brings to your ears!


Because you know it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice, it’s soothing,

all about that voice ’bout that voice, it’s moving,

I’m all about that voice ’bout that voice, so sue me!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice


Please bring the music baaaaack!

we know that you’ve laid down some traaaaacks

Perhaps a little hint or two?

No, I’m just playin, but we’d love it, I’m just sayin’

if we heard a snippet soon :D


Now we all know it’s clear oh so “patient” your fans have been  

As we wait for the day when you sing to us all again

we all know you have grown, a new you you’ve brought home, that’s true.

What you sing we don’t care, just please sing anywhere you choose!


Because it’s all about that voice, ’bout that voice from Season 7

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice,  just heaven,~sigh~

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice not kiddin’!

its all about that voice ’bout that voice

Yeah Yeah


Because it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice, hooked on it

it’s all about that voice, ’bout that voice, our tonic!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice doggone it!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice!

You know you love it!
