“Riding on Clouds” – Dayzee’s recap of David Archuleta’s concerts in Layton

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, September 27, 2015

The long drought was finally over! The two shows in Idaho Falls had been the stuff we dreamed about for years. Our golden voice was back. We were riding on clouds. Saturday night our euphoria suddenly ended in Layton. I was second row center and could see David’s lips moving and heard no sound. A short “erk”, a small “ech”. People behind me were saying there was something wrong with the sound, but I could see it was something wrong with David. After a valiant effort to sing several songs, David left the stage.

He came back with Kirt Bateman, Executive Director of Davis Arts Council to announce David would return with a Christmas gift for us. Mr. Bateman’s arm was around David while on the stage. How many times have we seen that picture? David draws hugs.

You have probably read Kirt’s email to us, but I want to repeat it here:

“Mr. Archuleta with a fever, no voice, aching body, and virtually no energy, went out on that stage in front of 1700 expectant people on Saturday and, like the true star he is, gave them all that he had! Why? …. he’s a man of integrity and wanted to give you the show he had planned and rehearsed for you.”

David talking the words to MKOP was the most memorable part of that evening for me. He said he did not want to spoil the words with his imperfect singing voice. It was the most moving rendition of that song I have heard.

Monday night was better, but all singing done low-key and in a lower key. No high notes. Few glory notes, though he often made the effort. At least he was singing. Love and respect were tangible.

Both nights David’s band led by Kendra did a number without David to give him a rest. They were great.

Loved the brother/sister act. David ran off the stage mid-concert. We were so worried. A minute later he returned with sister in tow. He announced that she was going to speak for him so he could save his voice to sing. Pretty obvious that she had not volunteered for this assignment. A little hemming and hawing and then she said she only found out about this an hour ago.

David got in her face “Excuses, excuses” he said as a brother would. Jazzy grudgingly began (as a sister would) and soon became more comfortable and smiley.  Later she returned and did a second reading of his notes.

Towards the end David said he had not had enough time to write any more thoughts out for Jazzy to read. He told us he wanted to talk to us and tell us things but he also wanted to sing for us. There was such anguish in his voice, on his face. A little leaking around the eyes.

I did not expect him to come out for an encore. He seemed completely spent. But there he was. Still gamely giving his all for us. His mother and her sister were lovely and covered much of the singing on the encore.

My companion that night had never seen David in person. I told her she would love him. And she did. Her favorite song was Glorious and I never expected David to last long enough to sing that last song.

Could not have asked for more.

Sound, Emotion and Light ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bluesky4home on Friday, January 2, 2015

DoYouHearWhatIHearscreamcap by Bebereader

When I was younger, I often remarked to my Dad that in order to make certain that there would be sufficient energy to run a home, all one would have to do would be to hook up a generator to the handle of the refrigerator. (We had a family of ten at the time.) I estimated that the boost of power the generator would get each time the door opened and closed could keep it going indefinitely. The refrigerator is certainly an appliance that gets a lot of use! And one knows basically what to expect from a refrigerator. It is a common appliance that usually behaves itself.

I could say the same thing about most of the music around us today. That is, that it is fairly common within its genre and I pretty much know what to expect when I open any given “door” in order to get some goodies. I don’t have to be fully awake. I don’t have to be fully engaged. I can rummage through the fridge with my eyes half-shut and my mind mostly somewhere else.


Which leads me to “Dear DA”.

Once, years ago, I posted a comment that went something like this:

“Listening to DA is kind of like a surreal trip to the refrigerator in the middle of the night. I know I am hungry for something, not sure what. So, I trundle along, shuffling into the kitchen expecting maybe – something I might have forgotten about or overlooked. Or something I remember that there might be more of, if not already snapped up by others.

The lights are dim, comfortable.

Then I open the fridge.

And instead of a small, unobtrusive refrigerator bulb to guide my way to the known, I am bowled over with brilliant, white, explosive, sound, symphony, emotion and light. A light that makes me forget why I came to the refrigerator in the first place, and remember instead bigger, better things for which I had no idea I was hungering.”

That, Dear DA, is what happens when I think that I am looking for “something” and find out instead, that Comfort & Joy have found me.

Thank you.

Brooke + David Archuleta “Cherry Lane”

Posted by djafan on Wednesday, December 17, 2014


This guy, I can’t tell you the love and respect I have for him and his absolutely incredible talent which can only be surpassed by his character. Maybe he wins the #bestpersonIknow hashtag award. I’ve known him for years now since our Idol days, and have watched him grow from a shy teenage heart throb into such a great dude with such a solid sense of himself, God and all that is important in life. Since the return of his mission we’ve seen each other for a quick minute but have talked several times. Every one wants a piece of him, I knew people were beating down his door with requests and opportunities to lend his golden pipes so I was apprehensive at first to even ask him to do this, as a friend I try not to ask for anything :-) But given the nature of the project I figured it was worth asking, so I picked up the phone and gave him a call and told him about the cause. With in a few days he responded with an enthusiastic yes! Such great news! It just so happened that we would both be in Nashville at the same time, this in itself is a miracle.

So he came to Daniel Tashian’s studio on a Friday and the three of us wrote and recorded “Cherry Lane”, one of the happiest songs of the whole record…. stylistically it probably leans a bit more my direction with it’s throw back vibe, but the soothing sound of his voice on this call and answer chorus is what makes it completely magical. You don’t understand, his pitch perfect tone is at such a world class level, and it’s baffling, and yeah, nerve racking to even have my voice on the same track. Seriously, I get a tear whenever I hear him sing. Who doesn’t?! Anywho, “Cherry Lane” is a song for us grown ups, it was that first street I grew up on, it represents a simpler happy time and place when we’d “rather stay outside and play than stare down at the phone all day”. It’s emotional too though, David’s voice beckoning “we could go back, we could go back to where we were”. Thanks David for being a part of this. Also, funny side note, I was so excited that I called my parents from Nashville to tell them about the song the next day, and my mom said “oh honey, the street was actually called “cheery lynn”…. haha, ah well, cherry lane/ cheery lynn, tomato /tomahto close enough ;-)

We’ve reached over 60% of our goal! Please help spread the word and get us over the hump!

Go here to listen to > Cherry Lane  It’s just after the main article. Look for a small > and click to play.

And David tweets!

And posts on his instagram!

“Never Grow Up” Charity Album : Links to this worthy cause are bolded.

I am supporting O.U.R. in their mission to save children from slavery by getting all of you involved in a charity album!

O.U.R., comprised largely of former NAVY Seals, Special Agents and members of the CIA, sets up and engages in missions with the purpose of rescuing kidnapped children from sexual slavery throughout the world. In October, one such mission resulted in 55 children being freed from sex slavery in Colombia. Another recent undercover mission into Haiti was documented thoroughly here to give supporters a sense of how much planning one of these missions takes.

Each mission costs roughly $20,000, so White’s goal of $25,000 in pledges will result in $20,000 being donated to help pay for one mission, with the rest of the pledges being used to cover production and shipping costs. But that’s not all. With Foundation Entertainment’s matching offer, a successful campaign will mean that two missions can be carried out instead of just one.

To learn more about Operation Underground Railroad, visit their Ways to Help page, their O.U.R. Process page or their Become an Abolitionist page.

David Archuleta and The Song That Could

Posted by Abrra on Sunday, November 9, 2014

MTMpremiere(At Meet The Mormons premiere)

I had a strange reaction when David went to the trouble of making a video for the song “Glorious” and then gave the song away for free. The video represented what most fans consider a dream come true; David singing his heart out in the studio! I thought, ‘What is he doing? Is he sabotaging his career if he gives his talent away?’ But as the the views on YouTube climbed to hundreds of thousands and reached over a million, the light finally went on over my head.

This was a genius move. How better to jump-start his career than to hitch his wagon to a juggernaut of a song that is the centerpiece of a documentary movie? This move certainly got his name back in circulation in Utah and with his fans, some who may have stepped back when he left on a mission. Finally he had something to share with those who took the time to listen. It was a generous gift.

Next came the super cut video contest where David invited everyone to make a video of themselves singing “Glorious” to a music track that he provided.

This is where the whole thing evolved into the “song that could”. I have seen old and young, male and female, trios and duos, and choirs take to a microphone and record themselves singing. They sing in living rooms, stairwells and one was even on a road beside a corn field. Reading the descriptions below many of the videos, I could tell that this song had touched them deeply. It wasn’t just that David had asked them to sing; it was a desire to share their hearts with song.

What started out as a song to promote a documentary became something that touched generations of people worldwide. The main motivational ingredient was David Archuleta. He took a song and breathed life into it as only he can and made others want to listen to the lyrics and become inspired to sing it their way.

What I discovered by looking through the video playlist is that David’s fanbase is more diverse than I realized. At concerts there are mainly ladies and young teen girls. How nice it is to know there are men of all ages who proclaim their fandom! There is a silent majority out there who are fans. They show their support in ways that never occurred to me.

I see now that giving the song “Glorious” away for free was a master plan! A gift and an invitation from one heart to another. That’s the David I know best!

David Archuleta – A Blog from Afghanistan

Posted by djafan on Friday, July 18, 2014

Photo 1: I don’t think that’s how you properly salute, but oh well haha. We have to wear the body armor sometimes when we travel from one base to another on military aircraft here in Afghanistan.


Hey everyone,

I have written a letter to my family and friends, but I decided that I should share it with all of you as well:

First off, I am sorry that I can never write less than an essay and that my emails are always so long! But please bear with me and my imperfections with this one.

I wanted to write to all of you seeing as this last week has been quite incredible for me. Right now I am writing this to you as blasting winds full of dust attack my face and my eyes (I’m outside to have some time to myself). I am currently in Afghanistan, and as I don’t know when I will ever be here again I would like to take the time to write to you under interesting circumstances.

What am I doing here? I was invited by a man named Dan Clark. He is a world renown speaker who is the main contributor to the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. He has spoken many, many times to the troops all over the world. We are joined by a professional impersonator/comedian named Jason Hewlett (he’s hilarious), and my voice trainer Dean Kaelin (accompanying me on the piano and guitar, and performing himself a number) to do a military tour. It is a tour with the focus to inspire and give an uplifting message to the troops as we entertain.

July 8th we left for the Middle East. We began in the country of Bahrain– a country I had never even heard of before. Afterwards we went to Kuwait. It was amazing to see how empty it is here terrain-wise: sand, sun, dust, and desert. However, due to oil and gas these are very wealthy countries. We visited an Islamic mosque and I was amazed to see that they believe in prophets, and even believe in Jesus Christ… As a prophet of God; not as the Only Begotten, yet they believe that He will come again. It is Ramadan here which is the month of fasting, where they cannot eat or drink from sunrise until sunset. We cannot eat or drink in front of them, and have to keep long-sleeve shirts and pants when in public Muslim-eye to not offend their traditions.

Anyway, this is a military tour, not a desert tourist trip. I wanted to express my love for these military men and women. Here in Afghanistan– along with in Iraq–they are in combat and there are attacks going on. I was surprised at the friendships and the respect the local people have with and for the troops, as the reason why we have been in these countries is to protect these people from opposing groups who seek for power and are extremists and terrorists trying to overtake the countries. We are now making transitions to let the Afghan military take charge of defending their own country so that they may strengthen their own sense of duty and value those rights and liberties more by taking the lead themselves.

We have met so many fathers who have yet to meet their newborn babies in person; they are out in this blazing heat of 100-140 degrees day to day (and wow it feels like a hair-dryer blowing in your face!). We have seen and felt their appreciation for us being here as we “come out of our way” to meet with them, perform for them, and let them know we love them — it is the LEAST we can do!! It is amazing to have them come up and say, “you don’t know how much this means to us. Thank you for coming to see us and break the routine. You bring a piece of home.”

These are people who learn what the word “duty” means. They literally put their lives on the line with rockets being shot at the bases, mines exploding their and civilians’ paths, and suicide bombers coming at them. It is real, but they do it because of their duty to our families and to our country, and to their duty to protecting countries and people who cannot do it alone. How grateful I am for their dedication and for them being awakened to their duty.

I hope the next time you see one of these service men and women, you think of their commitment that they have to this duty: to protecting our amazing and beautiful country where we have freedom, and working to help others have freedom as well. We take what we have for granted– whether- we go to the air-conditioned malls, or sit at our peaceful homes bored. Let us think twice about our liberty that we have in this promised land, and how God has truly blessed us. During this trip we are also getting to do some special faith-based events that we call firesides. It has been a wonderful bonus to the trip.

We have one more week of shows, and I will try and give you another (shorter) update as we come to a close.

I hope you are all well!


P.S. I’ve attached some photos.

Photo 2: This is a mortar with some army men that is setup to shoot back quickly at locations where incoming attacks come from.

Photo 3: These army men use those giant explosion-protected vehicles in the back to search for mines. They basically go through explosions many times so that it doesn’t happen to other military troops and civilians in normal cars or walking.

More Than Technique ~ David Archuleta

Posted by MT on Saturday, February 16, 2013


We all know that David Archuleta is “The Voice.” That’s why we all became so enamored of this wonderful artist from the beginning. David is one of those rare individuals whose voice can reach out and touch your soul through song. I’m not sure why it happens or how he’s able to accomplish such a task.  I just know it happens, at least for me.

From his early days on Star Search to the present, there has never been any doubt about his abilities. We’ve all read one article after another about his technique and his natural ability to make a song his own.  It doesn’t matter whether it’s an original of his own creation, one that was written for him and sung by him, or a cover of another artist’s song.  Once David sings it no other will ever compare, at least not for us. It’s a never-ending riddle for me as to why that is.

Why does no other artist give a song the power that David seems to imbue within its lyrics and melody? I’ve often tried to describe where I feel it comes from and to this day have not found the right words. I’ve said that he has “an echo chamber in his chest.” How else could he give such fullness to his voice? I’ve said that “he has music in his DNA” and it just oozes from every pore. I’ve thought perhaps it’s because of the shape or size of his mouth that he’s able to pronounce and sing words so beautifully. Or perhaps it’s a result of the vocal paralysis and resultant recovery that his tone has such richness.  But none of these explain why his voice reaches me, touches me, in the way that it does.

There’s something far more than technique, no matter how perfect, that makes David’s voice so special.  In the video below, Climb Every Mountain from Salt Lake City on the MKOC Tour, David gives a performance that, when I am able to make my self pay attention to that aspect of the song, appears to be technically perfect. But what makes this performance so special is something more than that.

Credit: jtmlm1234

While I’m quite sure he has practiced this song to make it as powerful as he can while performing it, there is no evidence that it is “rehearsed” during the performance. There is no spot that I feel is contrived to add power, no place that feels forced. It feels like it’s just being written as he’s singing it. It feels like his own words and his own feelings being released from his mind and heart at the very moment the lyrics are sung.

I have, years ago, dabbled in song writing. As you’ve all seen, I love writing poetry. Rhyme comes naturally to my mind somehow. I once wrote a poem that created its own melody in my head as I wrote and then read it. The result? A song. It took only minutes but was something so personal and powerful to me that when I sang it out loud only moments after writing it, it made me cry.

I tell you this because that’s how I feel when David sings a song like “Climb Every Mountain.” It feels like the song wasn’t written until that very moment and is something very personal and powerful to him. It feels like it’s being created from the very depths of his being and sung for the very first time, in the “here and now,” from the very first note until the last. Perhaps that’s the key.

David was gifted with the amazing ability to perform a song day after day, show after show, as if it’s the very first time, as if it’s an original written straight from his heart in that moment, as if he is speaking his thoughts through song. Once he begins, the technique, which is probably as close to perfect as one can get, is no longer noticed. It’s all about feelings. And what I feel as he begins to sing is his heart pouring out onto his audience on a beautiful wave of sound and genuine emotion.

He has the rare ability to connect very personally and powerfully to the music and lyrics of a song. The second part of that very rare gift is the ability to pass that on to his audience. The result is that, rather than just hearing it, the listener “experiences” the song in the exact same way David feels it. And he knows it.  No wonder he’s so very careful what he sings.

It may very well be why his wonderful heart is mentioned so often. It’s the tenderness, the sweetness, the innocence, and the love in his heart that comes through to us in his voice. Each time we listen, we are given one sweet moment of all that is beautiful in this world.

“Climb Every Mountain” is my example. Do you have a song you feel this way about?”

The Consummate Performer ~ David Archuleta

Posted by emmegirl14 on Saturday, December 1, 2012

Photo credit Naree


With all the vids I been watching lately, it again reinforced to me more than ever what a truly consummate performer he is. In the Rainbow vid he has been described as “dizzying” as a groovin’ mic-free David, then we have him flying across the stage dancing to a Zero Gravity, and then the choke-hold-on-the-mic D, giving us the stance and emoting like there is no tomorrow (My Hands/Providence, RI comes to mind), flashes of salsa, a few seconds of are-you-freaking-kidding-me moves during Soul Man, and then you have the Ave Maria’s and this:

Video credit 8throwcenter

Hadn’t seen this particular one before (and I ♥ it) where he just stands there and sings, gloriously sings.

…and I love one as much as the other. I love it all, I want it all. And we can’t forget piano accompaniment and I suspect possibly guitar on his return as well as more dancing! Huh, what, who? I know I’ve said it before, but it needs repeating (so here I go) – who else can sing and perform with such diversity at such high artistry AND look like that doing it!


*If anyone was ever born to perform, to be on a stage, it is him.*

(I know I’m preaching to the choir, but sometimes I just have to get it out.)

Thanks guys.

David Archuleta Inspires Gifting

Posted by djafan on Thursday, November 1, 2012

(photo credit: Naree)

David fans are the best gifters ever.  Most of the time they want to remain anonymous.  We want to thank them all who have so selflessly gifted.  Here are a couple of thank yous we’ve received; not all sent them, but as long as they are loving David Archuleta and his music, all is well.

English Translation

Hey guys, it’s Georgette here! Haha, sounds familiar? Well seemed like a good way to start this email since that’s how David begins his video blogs every time he makes one, and I love how he does that.

I became an “Archie” or “Arch Angel” as I watched the episode of Hannah Montana on Disney Channel 2 years ago. I felt an incredible connection with David and his way of being caught my attention, so I searched for him in Google (as anyone who wants to know a little more about someone LOL) and what I liked the most is that David has Latin family! wow! That shocked me very much, so I quickly went to YouTube and looked for videos of David speaking in Spanish… I was shocked! Not only by his way of speaking, but by its simplicity, humility, passion and all the feelings I noticed when David speaks, sings or simply expresses himself.

I also noticed that David participated in American Idol and came in second place, so I looked for the songs that he sang and all performances on YouTube. What else did I do? Download all the songs obviously! I converted to an Archie at around September, a little before the release of The Other Side Of Down. I remember it very well.

On page there was a countdown marking the days until 5 October. After downloading his songs I looked up the lyrics and I learned them very quickly. The connection I felt with David was very deep… he was not only “David Archuleta” he had become everything and more than I thought. I remember feeling inspired with the lyrics of his songs from TOSOD.

For me David is one in a million.  The simplicity and modesty that he shows are a great inspiration for many people. Not many artists are like this. I’m in love with the fact that David sings because he loves singing and music, not because he is interested in fame or anything else that comes with it; He only sings because the music is his life. David can’t imagine doing anything else that is not singing, and I can’t imagine listening to different music than that of David.

It’s as simple as this, if there is no David, there is no Georgette because David is part of me and I see him as a very important person in my life. The things that he taught me cannot be counted with a finger and I am really thankful for it all. I sometimes think, “how can there be people who don’t like David? Or, people who like David, but don’t feel as inspired as I am? Don’t they feel his music like other Archies? It is not easy to say, but I’m sure that if they stopped a moment to listen to any song, the words, it will be an inspiration because what you feel when David sings is contagious… you can see in his eyes, his way of expressing that he has a message behind each song and I am proud to say that I know that message. I now understand the message better.

When David announced that he would leave on a mission for the Latter Day Saints Church, my heart broke… but I couldn’t be happier! David would be serving his church for 2 years preaching the word of God, the person who has taught me many things I know and I give thanks to him for putting David in my path and now David will reach more people. Wow that is incredible!

To make a long story short. I give thanks to The Voice for all that you do for the fans. Thank you for sending me a copy of Forevermore and the amazing bracelet … David: You’ve become part of my soul.

-Georgette, Venezuela.

Original in Spanish

Hey guys, it’s Georgette here! Haha, sounds familiar? Bueno me pareció una buena forma de empezar este email ya que así empieza David sus video blogs cada vez que hace uno, y amo la forma en que hace eso.

Yo me convertí en una “Archie” o “Arch Angel” mientras veía el episodio de Hannah Montana en Disney Channel, hace 2 años. Sentí una conexión increíble con David y su forma de ser me llamó mucho la atención, así que lo busqué en Google (como toda persona que quiere saber un poco más acerca de alguien LOL) y lo que más me gusto es que David tienen familia LATINA! wow! Eso me impactó mucho, así que fui rápidamente a YouTube y busqué vídeos de David hablando en español… Quedé impactada! No solo por su forma de hablar, sino por su sencillez, humildad, pasión y todos los sentimientos que noté en David al hablar, cantar o simplemente expresarse.

También noté que David participó en American Idol y que quedó de segundo lugar, así que busqué las canciones que cantó y todas sus presentaciones en YouTube. Qué más hice? Descargar todas sus canciones OBVIAMENTE!!! Me convertí una Archie al rededor de Septiembre por lo que faltaba poco para el lanzamiento de The Other Side Of Down, lo recuerdo muy bien.

En su página había un conteo regresivo por los días que faltaban para el 5 de Octubre. Luego de descargar sus canciones busqué las letras y me las aprendí muy rápido, es que la conexión que sentí con David era muy profunda… no solo era “David Archuleta”, él se había convertido en todo lo que pensaba. Recuerdo haber sentido una inspiración muy fuerte con las letras de sus canciones desde su primer CD hasta TOSOD. Para mí David es uno en un millón, su sencillez y modestia que expresa son de gran inspiración para demasiadas personas y eso no lo tienen muchos artistas. Estoy enamorada del hecho de que David solo canta porque ama cantar y la música, no porque le interesa la fama o cualquier otra cosa que venga con ella; él solo canta porque la música es su vida, no me imagino a David haciendo otra cosa que no sea cantar y no me imagino escuchando otra música que no sea la de David.

De una manera más sencilla: No hay David, no hay Georgette; porque David ya es parte de mí y lo considero como una persona muy importante en mi vida.  Las cosas que él me ha enseñado no se pueden contar con un dedo y estoy realmente agradecida con todo. A veces pienso, ¿Cómo existe gente a la que no le gusta David? O, a la gente que le gusta David, ¿se sentirán tan inspirados como yo?  ¿Sentirán su música al igual que otros Archies? No es fácil decirlo, pero estoy segura de que si se detienen un momento a escuchar cualquier canción de él y entender las letras, lo sentirán porque la inspiración es contagiosa al igual que los sentimientos que siente David cuando canta… se puede ver en sus ojos y en su forma de expresarse que él tiene un mensaje detrás de cada canción, y estoy orgullosa de decir que sé cuál es ese mensaje. Y ahora mucho más conozco el mensaje.

Cuando David anunció que partiría en una misión para la Iglesia de los Santos de los Últimos Días, mi corazón se partió… no podía estar más feliz!! David estaría sirviendo para una Iglesia por 2 años predicando la palabra de Dios, la persona que nos ha enseñado muchas de las cosas que sabemos y le doy gracias a Él por poner a David en nuestro camino; y saber que ahora David llegará a mucha más gente?? Wow eso es increíble!!

Para no hacer esta historia más larga me despido agradeciendo a The Voice por todo lo que hacen por los fans, gracias por enviarme una copia de Forevermore y el increíble brazalete… David: Te has convertido en parte de mi alma.

-Georgette, Venezuela.

Hello, first of all I want to thank you TheVoiceDavidArchuleta and Blueberry Ice from CA, thanks to you I have this wonderful FOREVERMORE Cd and also to SandyBeaches from Canada for the beautiful bracelet she gave me.  INFINITE THANKS!


For me DAVID is more than an Idol, why?  Because he is simple and humble despite being a famous artist, he has never changed and remains as who he is. I love his personality, so humble and generous to all, it is really admirable.

David is the best singer for me because he has an ANGELIC voice that not many have, his songs are very beautiful and meaningful. He inspires me so much. :)

For me he is a winner.  He worked hard to get to where he is :) and he remains the same: the same sweet guy. Nice, humble, simple, charismatic, lovable and cute.  I watched him on ‘American Idol’ in 2008 and  I became a fan of David. :)

David Archuleta is without a doubt a complete artist! In addition to a great human being < 3!

– ALWAYS smiles.
– ALWAYS delivers the best in every interpretation.
– ALWAYS supports his friends.
– ALWAYS is proud of his Latin roots. <3
– ALWAYS cares for those around him.
– ALWAYS attends to his fans and talks with them.
– ALWAYS is attentive to everyone.

Thanks to his efforts.  He has endured adversities but has been able to overcome :’)

The truth for me, and I dare say that for many of his fans he is an example to follow and a being that inspires us a lot. :’ (D)

Waiting for David Archuleta…

El para mí es UN TRIUNFADOR, lucho MUCHÍSIMO para llegar a donde el esta :) , y sigue siendo el mismo: el mismo chico dulce, simpático, humilde, sencillo, carismático, adorable, lindo que  veía en el programa ‘American Idol’ aquel 2008 que es  desde allí donde me hice fan de David. :)

David Archuleta es sin duda un artista completo! Además de un gran ser humano<3!

– SIEMPRE está sonriendo.
– SIEMPRE entrega lo mejor de sí en cada interpretación.
– SIEMPRE apoya a sus amigos y cercanos.
– SIEMPRE se muestra orgulloso de sus raíces latinas. <3
– SIEMPRE se preocupa por los que están a su alrededor.
– SIEMPRE atiende a sus fans y conversa con ellos/as.
– Es atento con todos.

Y todo lo que ha logrado ha sido gracias a su esfuerzo, al igual que cualquier persona ha tenido debilidades y adversidades pero las ha sabido superar :’)

La verdad para mí, y me atrevo a decir que para varias de sus fans, es un ejemplo a seguir y un ser que nos inspira muchísimo. :’D

Waiting for David Archuleta…
