David Archuleta ~ At the Sounds of David Event

Posted by djafan on Sunday, April 21, 2013

SOD PIC A

Sounds of David Luncheon and Fan Mixer

On Saturday April 6, 2013 a group of devoted fans got together in honor of David Archuleta and his music with the goal of benefiting Child Fund International and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, two children’s’ charities that David supports.

Pamela Pike did a terrific job arranging this event which I had the pleasure of attending!  We had a delicious buffet lunch consisting of grilled chicken and steak, together with greens and wonderful desserts.

I had a great time with Winnie, she’s lovely.  It was also great fun meeting up with known fans and meeting new ones.  I hope we can continue to have fan get-togethers.

photo (1)

Here are the highlights:

Mariners Elementary School Choir of Newport Beach sang for us.  It was a great surprise to hear them sing Nandito Ako, they were so cute.

Newport Platinum Dance Academy danced to Zero Gravity and My Kind of Perfect, some more cuteness.

photo (4)

Singer/Songwriter, Sunny Hilden emceed the event.  She has so much energy and spunk. Sunny handled the auction duties had us in stitches.  While auctioning off a large David poster she encouraged us by saying it could serve as a wrinkle remover lol.  I can see why she is David’s friend.  It was a privilege to have some words with her.  She is a genuine person.  She loves and admires David.  Sunny spoke of David throughout the event, sharing how she met him at the AI finale when Randy Jackson told a bunch of kids wanting to sing for him to go sing to Sunny, she’s a singer and songwriter, so they all went to her and sang.  David waited to the end.  She knew then he had something special and kept in touch with him. Sunny also shared with us a story about The My Kind Of Christmas poem David read to the kids on the Christmas tour.  They are actually part of the lyrics of a song by the same name she had never completed.  It has since been completed and Sunny read it to us.  She shared that the melodies in this song are beautiful.  She’s hoping and praying that David record’s it when he returns (I added to my list of prayers).

I was so excited to meet Michael Orland, Musical Director of American Idol.  He and I have some tweet history and I’ll never forget him saying “David came to us a genius and left a genius”.

Dorian Holley, AI vocal coach, spoke so highly of David and his time on American Idol. Noting how David in his quiet way stood his ground on things going on behind the scenes. Dorian mentioned how everyone liked David and that his work ethic was something else.

photo

Special video appearances by:

Rosanne Simunovic better known as Masterclass Lady who is a voice instructor also spoke highly of David and has a huge admiration for not only his voice but person.  She told the story of meeting David during AI tour in Canada.  That upon meeting and introducing herself to David he quickly asked her for help in regards to his singing, always trying to improve.

Dean Kaelin David’s voice instructor sent a video in which he spoke about his singing and the decision of going on a mission.  Dean got teary at one point talking about David’s decision.

I understand this will be on the DVD of the day.  I hope it has Kari’s parting words at the end, had us in tears.

I was able to speak to Kari for a bit and meet Jon “The Broken Man” I named him.  I introduced Winnie to her as a new fan.  Kari asked Winnie how she became a fan and Winnie told her because of Nandito Ako.  Kari’s face lit up and said “Wasn’t he good?” lol We said, “YES!  Still hoping for that DVD!”

kariandjon1

Kari thanked us for our support of David through tears.  Told us she and David are so appreciative of all we do for him and that David WILL START WHERE HE LEFT OFF UPON HIS RETURN AND THAT THINGS WILL BE BIGGER AND BETTER!

I have chills every time I repeat this.  So let the countdown continue.

DAVID ARCHULETA ~ LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!

Posted by djafan on Thursday, March 28, 2013

nomatterhowfaralbumpic

Mckenzie did an awesome job highlighting David’s accomplishments during  his first year away on his mission.  She does a great job of promoting David.  I saw this tweet and was blown away by this amazing labor of love.

McKenzie Harris ‏@McKenzieHarr21 Mar

Uploading my 30 min vid of career highlights of @DavidArchie March 2012-March 2013 tonight, “Popstar on A Mission”. Check it out @kariontour

On March 28, 2012, American Idol star and Platinum recording artist David Archuleta left on a 2 year Mormon mission. 

In his absence, David’s team has successfully managed to keep his music career thriving by regularly releasing projects prepared before he left and by effectively harnessing the power of modern technology and social media to fully engage with fans around the work and to enlist their aid in keeping his name prominently in the public eye.

What David Archuleta and his team have accomplished this past year is something even fans doubted could be done. To an outsider looking in, David seems busier than ever before and certainly more busy than some artists actively pursuing their music careers. This is a testament to his incredible preparation before leaving, a marketing strategy effectively tailored to promote an artist not available to promote his work, and the undying support of one of the most committed fanbases in the world.

This video is a record of the remarkable and unprecedented year in David Archuleta’s career AFTER he left on his mission. Here are the highlights of what David and his team accomplished:

Released 4 CDs
Earned 1 Gold CD
Earned a #28 Debut on Billboard 200 (His 4th Top 30 CD)
Released 4 Music Videos
Earned multiple chart topping singles
Starred in an Ad campaign for Bench clothing
Released 14 new videos on his YouTube Channel
Added 320,000 Twitter Followers
Inspired 37 World Wide Twitter Trends
Added over a Million Facebook Friends
Preparing to release DVD of Nandito Ako – the miniseries he filmed just before leaving.

Pick up David Archuleta’s New CD, “No Matter How Far” out March 26, 2013 and released by E1Music. Available on ITunes, Amazon, Walmart etc.

Request his debut single “Don’t Run Away” at your radio stations.

The songs in the video are:

Forevermore and Tell Me from David Archuleta’s CDs “No Matter How Far” and “Forevermore” released by Ivory Music and Video.

Nothing Else Better to Do from David Archuleta’s CD “No Matter How Far” released by E1Music.

Somewhere Only We Know from David Archuleta’s CD “Begin.” released by Highway Records.

Rainbow (Remix) from David Archuleta’s CD Forevermore, Expanded Edition released by Ivory Music and Video

Ryan Seacrest Poll FINALS: Whose Album Are You Most Excited For? DAVID ARCHULETA’S!

Posted by djafan on Sunday, March 3, 2013

finals poll album tumblr_mda90wRXWJ1qc6i23o1_500

As you all know I’m a voting, commenting, viewing, anything to get David’s name out there junkie lol.   I put up the occasional link for you all to see and join in if possible.  Some do some don’t, either is fine, doesn’t make any fan better than another.  I try to touch everything put out relating to David but even in his absence it’s hard to do.  So I pick and choose what are the best promo opportunities IMO and go at it :)

This leads me to the Ryan Seacrest poll.  Will Seacrest debut or play David’s single or any other of his songs?  Not likely but not impossible.  Seacrest is viewed and followed by not only fans of almost every artist but also the media, music and news alike.  So I put this poll as the #1 priority.  And after seeing these tweets I feel this is more than a mindless poll.  I believe this will show the interest in David is still strong and that his fans are here waiting for him.

Don’t Run Away lyrics

When something’s wrong
And too much to handle
Try to find some peace of mind
Let it go.
Wait a minute, you know this road
It’s gonna leave you on overload

Yeah…

‘Cause somebody cares, yeah

I can see you hurting (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away (x3)
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away (x3)
Tonight
Tonight

Hmm…

Don’t make a sound
I’ll be your voice
You don’t need to be afraid
Anymore
I’ll shine a light out in the dark
Guide you here no matter how far

Ooooohhh, yeah

‘Cause somebody cares, oh yeah

I can see you hurting, (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away (x3)
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away (x3)

Open up
Let it all out tonight, yeah
Open up
And everything will be alright

I can see you hurting, (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away (x3)
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away (x3)

(Layered vocals of these words)
Oh, away, away, away, away, away
Turn around
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
I’ll be right here
Ooohhhh

Tonight
Tonight
