David Archuleta ~ I Will Always Return

Posted by pocoelsyforarchie on Tuesday, September 11, 2012

I hear the wind call your name.

It calls me back home again.

It sparks up the fire – a flame that still burns.

Oh it’s to you I’ll always return.

As I was watching “Spirit, Stallion of the Cimarron” on a lazy Saturday afternoon in July with my daughter, this song came on!!!  Man, it shook my world a little bit …ok…a lot!!!  I realized how much I miss David!!!  I can relate almost everything to him!!!  I’m nuts!!  I know!  haha.  He’s only been gone a few months, but somehow he’s just like a close family/friend to me and I believe to many of us as well.

“Spirit” the stallion has similar characteristic as David, though not exactly the same.  As the song progresses, the lyrics are really in sync with our situation, both on David’s part and ours.  I’m pretty sure that while he’s so super busy with his mission, a part of him misses our excitement-smile-scream-fan-boying and girling on our parts while he’s performing on his stage !!  It’s so evident how we all miss him and want the clock to run faster.  :)  Our love and thoughts are all over the fansites and YouTube.

The guy has captured our hearts and we have captured his.  To wait for him and support him are just about normal and natural things for us to do.  He’s generously invited us into his life, so we’ll definitely be here as long as he needs us.  That’s what friends are for, right !?

The support and yearning words from the fans, David’s love and trust in us, and a wishful thinking on my part inspired me to make this vid for both David and us.   Hope you like it.

I encourage you all to watch this fantastic animation “Spirit Stallion of the Cimarron.”  It’s fun and inspiring and the songs by Bryan Adams are outstanding!!!

Thank you all.  :)

David Archuleta ~ Links § Ties That Bind ~ Best Fans for Life

Posted by SandyBeaches on Wednesday, May 30, 2012

“I would love a bracelet! Or should I say a “link” of the chain of support for an amazing young man, one that ties us together, until we meet again and forevermore.” ~ djbell13

An online letter to Kari…

Dear Kari,

I have sent to you, Jasmine and Eula, our two bracelets that have recently been distributed by our site, The Voice. We have mailed out bracelets from Hawaii all the way east to Newfoundland in Canada and on to Manila, Singapore and Australia. We are gifting the bracelets north from Toronto and some south to Argentina, Chile, Columbia and Peru. Some have been requested and some have been gifted. The two bracelets each convey their own message to David.

Perhaps the history of the bracelets is interesting in the fact that the idea was created to give to David our support as he journeys along his career path. Upon notification that David would be a guest singer at the Constitution Fair in Arizona last September, several of us at the fansite, The Voice, brainstormed about ways to send the message to him that his fans are here and anxious to see and hear him sing. We arranged special seating for fans approved by David and his team, which created a fund-raising opportunity for the event. We compiled for him letters and cards from around the world from people who wanted to tell David how very much they enjoyed and appreciated his music. We filled a large travel bag to capacity with gifts from fans for that night and it was then that we passed out the first bracelets to the fans ~ David Archuleta ~ “Nobody Sings It Better.” The response to the bracelets was inspiring.

Four years have passed since many of us first met David. During this time you could see fans of all ages waiting in lines for concerts, sitting together in the hot sun, dancing to Zero Gravity in the mosh pits and listening reverently at the Conference Hall in Salt Lake City on a special Sunday morning in December. Age has had no barriers.

As David has worked diligently on his career path, his fans have also put forth their talents and means of communications to come together as a strong unit. Gatherings of fans from several of the sites in the United States began to take place as far back in time as his Christmas From the Heart tour. The site, Fans of David held the first large gathering that took place in Salt Lake City, by hosting a Christmas brunch. Richard Parkinson played the piano and sang, much to the delight of everyone there that day.

From that time on, fan sites organized gatherings to be held during the tours both on the east coast, the west coast and everywhere in between. Long before the incredible four days of the Tabernacle Choir Christmas concerts, fan sites began to set new plans into motion. The SnowAngelz was the first site to host, reserving a restaurant for an early brunch. The Voice filled a Thai restaurant for lunch. This event was followed by a number of fan sites taking their turn and filling restaurants to their capacities. During all of these times, the administrators, the writers and the fans of the sites began to come together creating as a result, a strong fan base throughout North America.

But I would not want to forget to mention the important work of the fundraisers and the fans who have contributed to several of the charities that David supports. Among the many charities, we have helped to create a sidewalk in India and some have now become supporters of Child Fund International.

Now for the second bracelet that is written in Spanish. The quote on the bracelets was taken from the song “Contigo En La Distancia”, sung by David at the Alma Awards, 2009, and says, “Te Has Convertido En Parte De Mi Alma”___You Have Become A Part Of My Soul.

So this is just a chapter from a story to be continued. As fans in North America reach out to each other and the world, we look forward to the time when David returns home.

Wishing you all the best,

“I am sharing a photo that shows several of us wearing bracelets at the LA Nokia VIP MKOC (which was a poorly lit room so the photo didn’t turn out so well) & it was taken just as Djafan had passed them out to the rest of the eager VIP’ers. Gosh, the memories of MKOC were so wonderful weren’t they? It was my first VIP and I will certainly look forward to the next one wearing my lovely ‘bling’!” ~ Blueberry Ice
