Memorial Day has come to mean the beginning of summer, a time for picnics and barbecues, and a holiday to gather around the family. That happiness and freedom, however, is a product of the real cause for the holiday: the sacrifice made by men and women who have fought and died for the freedoms and liberties Americans hold dear. Memorial Day is a time to remember that the American way of life is not cheap but rather has been purchased by the lives and blood of so many who have sacrificed for us to live free and happily now.

The Price of Health

Posted by Abrra on Saturday, May 23, 2015

A tweet by fa3rygirl came to my attention recently. I recognized the name but had not seen her on fan sites for awhile. Her name is Sheila Roposa, a fan I had met a few times at concerts.

She is most memorable to me because of the compassion she showed to a young man named Michael. His dream was to attend a concert and meet David Archuleta. He was ill with cancer and had to be in a wheelchair. Not only did she get Michael to the show in Northhampton, MA, but she made sure he got to meet David backstage. This was not a simple task because there were 12 inches of snow on the ground. I will never forget the picture of David reaching out to Michael to say hello.

Sheila was tweeting about a GoFundMe page her family had set up. It is a crowdfunding platform that allows people to raise money for events ranging from life events such as celebrations and graduations to challenging circumstances like accidents and illnesses. The company is based in San Diego, California. I clicked the link and read the story about how her daughter, Tiffany, was ill with Lyme disease. I came away with the feeling that this was nothing short of a tragedy. My heart went out to Tiffany and her family. It’s a helpless feeling when you are told that there isn’t any coverage for medicine that is desperately needed. I knew I had to do something to help spread the word about a GoFundMe page set up to raise funds for Tiffany’s medical costs.

My hope is that Tiffany will get what she needs to get her life back. By sharing her story I hope to raise awareness about Lyme disease.

A message from Sheila:

My name is Sheila. My 15-year-old daughter Tiffany was bitten by a tick infected by Lyme Disease and several other infections two years ago. Her doctor at the time did not recognize the bulls eye rash and Tiffany went one year without any treatment while the Lyme Disease progressed.

Tiffany started taking antibiotics two years ago. Due to the infection being in her nervous system, brain, and heart, she has needed extended treatment, including IV antibiotics.

Recently she was placed on a PICC line, which is an IV line for antibiotics. Our health insurance would only cover one month of treatment. Tiffany started to improve once on the IV line, which is the only time in two years she had this much improvement, but due to insurance guidelines that only cover one month of treatment, the IV line was pulled today. We are setting up this account to try to get some funding to pay for Tiffany’s medical bills and additional time on the IV line.

Before getting sick, Tiffany was an active girl that played soccer and rode horses. For the last two years, Tiffany has been severely ill. She has been out of school with home tutoring as she can’t walk or sit in a classroom. She is bedridden a lot of the time. She has had numerous ER visits, doctor visits, hospitalizations, and sees several specialists for her brain and heart. She’s lost weight, had periods of paralysis, seizures, lost all her hair, has fluid around her heart, developed autoimmune disease, and countless other complications. She’s missing out on life.

We want Tiffany to be able to receive this treatment to get her life back. If you can, please consider donating. Any amount, no matter how small, will help. If you can’t donate (we understand not everyone is in the position to), please share this link with everyone you know and ask them to pass it on.

Update May 20, 2015

Hi, thank you everyone for all your help. We have now been able to schedule Tiffany an appointment with the Lyme Center of New England, which is a private facility. They will be able to further help her and maybe get her IV back in. We found out just with one medicine that her IV out of pocket will cost us $2,000 a month so we increased the goal, but we do now have enough to get things started, so thank you! Tiffany is feeling pretty sick still. She lost her hair again, but she’s handling it well. A neighbor and friend had her a wig made and people from the community donated to pay for it. So thank you to everyone for that also. We are very blessed. Sharing with everyone you know will help us so much. We’ve received donations from family and friends of people we know, so it does work! Thank you again to everyone.

Historical Colonial Theater

Colonial - Deep Love

Built by C.A. Spath, cashier of the Farmers and Merchants Bank; Dr. C.M. Cline, physician and S.K. Mittry, contractor: the Colonial Theater opened on November 10, 1919, at a cost of just over $175,000. It boasted one of the largest stages in the Intermountain West, a modern ramp (in lieu of stairs) to the balcony, a ventilation system, which circulated fresh air every five minutes and superb acoustics. Traveling vaudeville acts and minstrels entertained, as well as musical acts like John Phillips Sousa.

In 1929, it was renamed the Paramount Theater and began showing moving pictures. Sadly, it fell into disrepair in the late 1980’s and was closed.

In 1994, Dick Clayton, Sr. and his son Steve donated the theater to the Idaho Falls Arts Council, a private nonprofit organization.

The Idaho Falls Arts Council launched a capital campaign, known as the Phantom project. An anonymous donor challenged the community to raise half of the total cost and the Phantom would donate the remaining. The successful $4.2 million dollar campaign renovated the Colonial Theater and the adjacent buildings into a beautiful visual and performing arts center for the region.

Renamed for the Phantom donors, Miles and Virginia Willard, who also chaired the campaign, the Willard Arts Center now contains a visual arts building with galleries, classrooms, artist studios, meeting spaces for events, and much more.

Today the 988 seat Colonial Theater is one of three large theaters of historical significance which still remain in Idaho. In 2014 alone, the Colonial Theater played host to over 25,000 patrons.

David Archuleta ~ American Idol Ending It’s Run

Posted by bebereader on Monday, May 11, 2015

I wasn’t surprised when I read the news this morning that “American Idol” was ending it’s run after it’s fifteenth season, next year.  Just a little melancholy because it signifies the end of an era and where I was first introduced to David Archuleta.

I know that there are people who still watch, even David fans. But I haven’t watched the show since Season 7 except in bits and pieces.  I lost my faith in the show’s premise, to find the best singer. I mean, come on. Really??

The show declined in ratings after Simon left and I understand why. He’s as sharp as a tack at what he does and provided a lot of zingers and “did he really say that?” moments.  But, in my opinion, there’s no excuse for degrading and belittling contestants for the sake of entertainment. It got old.

Apparently they are planning a big hurrah for the last season. I will watch but only to see glimpses of David.

Here are links to articles, to read more.

Happy Mother’s Day ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, May 10, 2015

FotoFlexer_PhotoThis old picture of David and his mother, Lupe has become a classic.  It’s posted here in honor of  both Mother’s Day and the seventh anniversary of his trip back home to Murray, Utah during his stint on American Idol. No matter how far, I hope David is able to spend Mother’s Day with his Mom this year.

David Archuleta ~ Glorioso Es

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, May 5, 2015

currentcredit Meet The Mormons

After the Youtube video for the Spanish version of “Glorious” was posted on this site, Gladys made this comment:

gladys1961 said
“The song is beautiful, David’s voice is sublime. It is different from the version in English. The lyric has totally changed.”

I was curious and asked Gladys if she would please transcribe the Spanish lyrics for us. When I read the Spanish lyrics and then translated them to English, I understood what Gladys meant. Although the sentiment is the same in both songs, the lyrics are very different. However, the song sounds just as beautiful in both languages.

David’s voice in Spanish has a natural flow. It may be because of his gift of combining the end of one word with the beginning of the next, weaving the lyrics together to create the melody.

What do you think?

David Archuleta ~ The Memories Are Still Alive by Gladys

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, April 21, 2015


I chose “The Memories Are Still Alive” as the title of this article because I feel this is the central theme of the song. But I don’t understand why David didn’t sing this line in the live version, because it expresses the title.

We know David will be David and if he changes or omits lyrics there is a reason. I listened to the song more than ten times to transcribe it word for word and to try to understand it’s literal significance. We know David is not a singer of love songs without a reason; everything that has the feel of his voice has a real significance. And this is not a love song.

The first time I heard the song I thought he was talking about something superior to him or about a person that was no longer with him. I was wrong. David was speaking of himself, of the David from before. I suppose that all human beings look for the same balance in life and David is no exception. It seems important to him to balance the David from before and the David from now. It’s impossible to leave behind and forget all that he was because all of that enriched what he is now, an adult with a set goal.

Even though a voice says “I hadn’t noticed the emptiness that was in me” that voice speaks to him of a past, a past that he is trying to overcome. In the last interview in Mexico he said they would tell him “the fame, the money, the recognition, everyone screaming, we love you David, that that was love”. But something told him that that wasn’t so. Trying to reconcile that part of his life with the David now, according to him has been a tough job but he is achieving it. Maybe like in the music video, the black and white images little by little turn to color and transform the actual person. Maybe David is doing this with his life, taking things from the David from before like the first verse in the song said “Stories run through my mind that I learned from you”, and balancing them with everything that is happening now.

We will always have the David from before, jumping and dancing and telling us anecdotes of his travels joining the new David which I am discovering every day. He is so young with a full life ahead of him and due to the recent news, also full of songs. In the video we see a person who is renewing his love for the guitar. Is David trying to tell us something? Whatever it is I will be there in the first row because my memories are still alive.

In Spanish:

Elegí ese titulo por que siento que es el tema central de su cancion. Pero no entiendo por que david obvio cantar esta linea en la actuacion en vivo.

Escuche mas de 10 veces la cancion para transcribirla palabra por palabra, y poder entender su significado literalmente. Sabemos que david no es cantantes de canciones de amor sin sentido, todo lo que tiene el sello de su voz, tiene un significado real. Y esta no es una cancion de amor.

La primera vez que escuche su cancion , yo pense que él hablaba de algo superior a él, o de una persona que ya no estaba con él, me equivoque. David habla de sí mismo, del anterior David. Supongo que todos los seres humanos buscamos lo mismo, equilibrio y david no es la excepcion. Parece que es tan importante para él, equilibrar el david que fue antes con el que es ahora. Es imposible dejar atras y olvidar todo lo que él fue, por que todo ello enriquece lo que es ahora, un adulto con una meta bien marcada.

Aunque esa voz le diga ” no habia notado el vacio que había en mi”, esa voz le habla en pasado. Un pasado que él ha tratado de superar. En la ultima entrevista en Mexico, él conto que le decian; “la fama, el dinero, el reconocimiento, todos gritandole , te amamamos David, eso es amor”, pero habia algo que le decia que eso no era asi.  Reconciliar esa parte de su vida con el david actual, segun él, ha llevado un trabajo arduo, pero lo esta logrando. Tal vez como en el video que acompaña esta cancion, las imagenes que se muestran en blanco y negro , poco a poco recuperan el color y acompañan al actual personaje. Quizas David esta haciendo esto con su vida, tomar cosas del antiguo David, como lo dice en la primera linea de la cancion “giran en mi mente historias que de ti aprendi”, equilibrandolas con todo lo que esta sucediendo ahora.

Siempre tendremos al antiguo david saltando y bailando, y contandonos anecdotas de sus viajes, acompañando al nuevo david, al cuál descubro todos los dias. Ël es tan joven, tan lleno de futuro y por las noticias reciente, lleno de canciones tambien.  En el video, vemos que el personaje recupera su amor por al guitarra, david nos querra decir algo??  Sea lo que sea yo estare alli, en primera fila, por que mis recuerdos siguen vivos.

Nunca Pensé  by David Archuleta

Giran en mi mente historias que de ti aprendí.
En un mar de dudas una voz algo me quiere decir.
Aunque me resista, no lo niego, no puedo mentir.
No había notado el vacío que había en mi.

Nunca pensé, que ahora que he encontrado esa parte de mi
ahora, entiendo por que estoy aquí.

Aunque te hayas ido tu influencia aun se puede sentir,
veo en tus ojos mi reflejo, algo me quieres decir.
Solo, no me has dejado, aunque un tiempo me perdí.
Algo tan inesperado que me ha llevado a ti.

Nunca pensé, que ahora que he encontrado esa parte de mi
ahora, entiendo por que estoy aquí.

Los recuerdos siguen vivos
Los recuerdos siguen vivos
Nunca pensé, que ahora que he encontrado esa parte de mi
ahora, entiendo por que estoy aquí.

David Archuleta Symposium Finale~ Recaps by Bluesky & Dayzee

Posted by djafan on Friday, April 17, 2015


he lives in you credit n8edwards IG (thanks Abrra for this find)

ReCap (bluesky style):

Bigger. Better. Bolder.

Buckling up will do no good. All seats will jettison – airlifting hearts to new flights of blessed reality. A reality brighter than you knew and at the same time, the beloved home you always craved.

Dayzee will tell you that I tried to do video but my poor little iPad simply did not have enough memory. *_* Well, I have never tried to film anything that long before, so it was a learning experience.

I just want to say that it is my firm belief that any qualms anyone has had about songs, genres, et al. No. Worries.

Watch the whole speech when it comes. (it has to… wish I had been able to get it all). Listen to the songs.

He is back. But is more than he ever was: deeper, stronger, a man on course. With talent pouring out of every nuance, sound, breath, action, deed.

Basically…..that’s it.

(and Dayzee is amazing. ^_^)

Just FYI: although the venue was at a University, the topic was ….kinda not something youngers are going to say: “wow! that sounds like fun, let’s go!” Maybe because of interest. It was great. I loved hearing the different viewpoints that I did get to hear. (not being able to get to the whole day)

And… just 20 min. or so before it began, I asked an usher how many people they were expecting – it still seemed kind of sparse to me. She told me that they expected about 2000, but that the ticket numbers were 4500. She thought the snow would make a big difference. I concurred.

But then… in just 30 more minutes the whole place filled up. I am sure there were upwards of 3000 there. And…. from my view, it looked like 80% were people the same age as DA. And they LOVED him. They were obviously there to see him. And they would not bring HIM out until he was due to go on. They knew that once he came out, no one would pay any attention to anyone else.

The audience… most all of them his contemporaries or just about…. watched for him all the time. They were constantly looking for “when is he coming out?” Even though no one said his name. And after he spoke and sang his last song – complete standing ovation. Complete. I am telling you – us olders were most certainly outnumbered. And although everyone was very kind and just treated us in grand style, you could plainly see that they consider DA t.h.e.i.r.s.

Can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of him.

(Can’t tell you how many guys – there with their girl friends – were just as “where IS he?” as the rest of them. All ages. All there for him. You gotta know that is why they never even mentioned him by name until just before he went on: the applause would have been a dead give away. ((Although, to be fair, the audience was great – they were very supportive and generous in their applause for both other musical numbers. They clapped and cheered along with the Baptist Choir – who were very good – and they loved the native American dancers as well. The announcer was just careful to refer to DA only as: various musical numbers tonight, until his set was announced. Good Call.)) ^_^ )


Recap by Dayzee:

He Lives in You is my new favorite song. David has once again outdone himself.

Bluesky was so gracious and fun. A great friend to share an evening with David.

Wow Wow Wow. Will try to settle myself down and return tomorrow.

I was so nervous yesterday preparing for an evening with David. Mastering snowy roads, finding Bluesky in an area I was unfamiliar with, reaching the venue on time, parking, finding the right place to be. I was so antsy I found myself at Bluesky’s home half an hour early. After listening to my profuse apologies, she responded as if it was perfectly ok to interrupt her getting ready. As if she did not think I was that babbling idiot that I was. Everything went smoothly and we were finally parked and looking for the official entry. Why do I worry? I am always afraid something horrible will happen and carefully laid plans will fall through.

There were no people visible outside the building. It was 5:30 and the doors were to be unlocked at 6:30. We decided to walk over to Will Call (always open) and find a restroom. After a nice young man took us through tunnels we were told to take the elevator up to the restroom. While waiting for the elevator I heard piano. Was that Be Still My Soul? Then that heavenly voice floated into the hallway. The elevator came. And went.

After recovering, we asked a fellow wearing the “Im here to help you” jacket where we should wait. Bluesky charmed him into feeling responsible for getting us to the best seats available. He unlocked doors and pointed the way. and told us to find the front row. Did not need to tell us twice. The first five rows were for VIP from the college, then a gap to the front of the rest of the seating. So we were on the front row behind VIP. And we were there for an hour and a half before the program began. Thank you Bluesky and Jacket fellow. Lupe, Claudia and other family were five rows in front of us on the real front row. Nice to see the family support.

When David appeared the crowd was deafening. A great welcome. When David went to the microphone to sing the first number, he gave us a puckish grin and started out “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”. At that point the entire audience was completely his. He went on to sing He Lives in You. So there I was taking the most pitiful video ever. One of the best frames showed the size 12 bright red Converse shoes of my neighbor. Somehow I was able to keep the camera somewhere in David’s direction when my screen told me NO more videoing because I had run out of storage. David was at that point in the song where he absolutely becomes awesome and shakes the rafters. Crap! The video above at #59 ends in the same place. Hoping someone will find the ending of that song.

When David was speaking I could not find the rambling man anywhere. His thoughts were concise and to the point. He laid himself out for all to see and hear. There were a few moments when I thought someone should get him a kleenex. He does not hold back his emotions. Gosh I love this guy.

The crowd showed their appreciation with a standing ovation. The room was all David. A line formed to shake David’s hand (or get a hug) but security sent them packing. In a nice way.

There is nothing like the feelings that engulf you after a David concert. Warm and fuzzy,yet electric and intense. All emotions combine to make me useless.

Can’t wait til next time.

Constitutional Symposium Finale ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, April 15, 2015


David is now a sought-after speaker as well as singer. His insight will be a welcoming addition to the lineup at this symposium. Dayzee and Bluesky and other lucky fans have tickets to this event and will be witness to what David has to share in words and song.

For Immediate Release

April 1, 2015

University Marketing & Communications: Melinda Colton | 801-863-6807 |

The Center for Constitutional Studies at Utah Valley University will host on Wednesday, April 15, an imposing lineup of distinguished religious studies and constitutional scholars, former U.S. Supreme Court law clerks, multidenominational contributors, and a finale program featuring popular musical performer David Archuleta as part of its dynamic Spring Constitutional Symposium on Religious Freedom.

“Some of the most important constitutional issues currently facing the nation involve religious freedom. If one wishes to learn more about how recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions will affect the religious freedom of individuals, businesses and religious organizations, then they will want to attend this academic symposium,” said Rick A. Griffin, director of the Center for Constitutional Studies. “Moreover, the evening finale will include a combination of remarks and musical performances that will add to the overall richness of the symposium.”

The symposium will begin with the opening keynote address,“The Quest for a Moral Presidency: Jimmy Carter, Progressive Evangelicalism and the Religious Right,” given by one of the most prominent presidential and religious scholars in the nation, Randall Balmer, the chair of the Department of Religion at Dartmouth College. Prior to this position, Balmer taught American religious history at Columbia University and was a visiting professor at such prestigious universities as Princeton, Yale, and Northwestern. He is perhaps best known, however, for his book “God in the White House.” Balmer’s remarks at the symposium will be based on his newest book, “Redeemer: The Life of Jimmy Carter.” The address will begin at 10 a.m. in the Lakeview Room of the Library.

A distinguished afternoon panel featuring Balmer; UVU President Matthew S. Holland; Douglas Kmiec, Caruso Family Chair in Constitutional Law at Pepperdine University; and Gene Schaerr, a prominent constitutional law attorney who provided counsel on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, will examine what role, if any, presidents should play in religious matters, with particular focuses on the views of presidents Thomas Jefferson, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. The panel will begin at 1 p.m. in the Library Auditorium.

From 3 to 5 p.m., a panel composed of Hannah Smith, former law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas and senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty; Matthew Franck, director of the Center on Religion and the Constitution at the Witherspoon Institute; Nathan Oman, professor of law at the College of William and Mary; and Alexander Dushku, a member of the Kirton McConkie law firm, will discuss recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions pertaining to the religious freedom of individuals, businesses and religious organizations. The panel will be held in the Library Auditorium.

The symposium finale will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the UCCU Center and will provide a vibrant program of final remarks and musical performances. “Because freedom of religion is a freedom shared by all Americans and because music has been such a powerful medium of religious expression, vibrating through the pages of our nation’s political and constitutional history, the center was especially interested in including a prominent musical guest speaker,” said Griffin. “We are excited to have popular singer and songwriter David Archuleta as the finale’s featured speaker and musical performer.”

As a former “American Idol”runner-up and member of America’s demanding music industry, Archuleta will share via word and song his unique life experience and provide insight into how religious freedom has impacted his life and career as an international musical performer. The finale will also include contributions by Kmiec, former U.S. ambassador to the Republic of Malta, and the popular Calvary Baptist Choir of Salt Lake City.

Admission to the symposium is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Free tickets for the morning and afternoon sessions are available at, or by calling 801-863-5470. Free tickets for the finale program featuring David Archuleta and the other contributors are available at 801-863-7469 or 801-863-7474, the UCCU Center ticket office, Campus Connection, or at CCS in suite 305 of the UVU Library.

About the Center for Constitutional Studies

The Center for Constitutional Studies at Utah Valley University is a dynamic, non-partisan, academic institute promoting the instruction, study and research of constitutionalism, ordered liberty and the rule of law. Since September 2011, the center has hosted a broad array of distinguished and high-profile guests engaging the University and greater community on a number of important and timely issues facing the state, nation and world. In particular, it examines constitutional issues found at the intersections of public law, political thought, public policy, religion, history and economics. Through rigorous course work, a demanding student mentoring program and prestigious conferences, symposia and lectures, the center has emerged as a regional hub and national leader in constitutional studies and civic leadership.




Safe travels to all fans who are making the trip. Looking forward to hearing all that you bring back to us.
