Going Green for David Archuleta

I love green.  It has always been my favorite color.  It represents hope and the promise of renewal.  The Emerald City after the journey.  The goal obtained.  The clean gleam of grass after a rain.  For many months the photo below, found on twitter, was my desktop.  It’s from the window of the house of David’s hairdresser from Nandito Ako, the house he filmed the video for “I’ll Never Go.”  I find it restful and since I love the color green, very satisfying.

THE GREENS OF THESE TREES THESE LEAVES

The greens of these trees these leaves
The many shades of green-
Olive green and deep dark green and yellow green
And greens I see but have no name for-
So many shades of light and beauty in green
And I with my eyes loving them all
And delighted and made happy by them all-

Wondering why and how God’s world
Has so so much Beauty
Just in green alone -
And being deep in happiness
At being alive
And loving them more
In regretting why and how
I will not one day soon
be able to see them again.

Shalom Freedman

I miss David.  On this Monday in September, I remember the greener days of summer and of being a fan.  It may not be one day soon, or as soon as we’d like, but we will see those days again.  After the looming winter, the emerald cities of tour dates will beckon once again.

Till then, here’s a lovely green video to feast your eyes and ears on.

David Archuleta and the Art of Whistling

Posted by Angelica on Friday, August 30, 2013

You know how to whistle, don’t you? You just put your lips together and…blow. 

Lauren Bacall, To Have and Have Not.

I don’t know how to whistle.  I could put my lips together and blow till my brains fell out and never produce anything but wind and severe hyperventilation. Maybe that’s why I admire people who can whistle. Don’t sit next to Djafan during a David concert if you value your eardrums. She is a two-fingered whistler, the most piercing kind, especially when produced within the acoustically perfect walls of the Conference Center during a certain MOtab Christmas performance.

David has mad whistling skills. When the snippet for YEDL was released, some questioned the use of whistling on the song.  I didn’t.  I loved it.  But most people, me included, did not know it was actually David that was doing the whistling. We discovered that only when he performed the song live in concert for the first time.

David is a pucker whistler. This is advantageous for several reasons:

1)  He has an excellent set of puckerers and this shows them off to maximum advantage.

2) Pucker whistling is more refined than the ear squealer.

3)  It allows for the creation of a more sustained note with maximum control.

4)  It is melodious when played by a virtuoso.  A virtuous virtuoso is even better as this produces the purest sound.

While many people can whistle, true whistling aficionados are rare.  Listen to the end of the rehearsal video of David in Manilla.  It’s as though he is playing a musical instrument.  He is.

I was there in Beaumont, Texas on the front row of a tightly jostling mosh pit when he performed YEDL in concert for the first time ever.

And better.

And better.

Video credit djbell13  10/30/09

Was all this really four years ago?  Yet still we wait, held here by the power of the purest sound.  A whistle on the wind.  Laughter and the sweetest smile.  A voice we cannot somehow live without.  We wait, ears cocked to the wind for a sound to come whistling toward us again.  We are here.  We are still here.

In the Studio With David Archuleta

Posted by MT on Sunday, August 18, 2013

Fullscreen capture 8182013 62129 PM.bmp

THIS!!! This video is all kinds of WIN! That’s pretty much all I could say at first about the amazing studio recording we got as a gift from Kari Sellards. I was left almost speechless after the first viewing. I was having a hard time thinking of what I could possibly say about his brilliance in that video. I can’t tell you how amazed I was watching him in action in the studio. I am in awe, to say the least.

Why do I love it so much? Well, I’ll be “shallow” first and say I love the little glance he gives at the beginning, a quick glance directly at the camera showing us he knows he’s being recorded. And let’s face it, he is beautiful with a set of headphones on. I don’t really know why I love that but I do. Love Love Love. Maybe it’s because in my mind he is a “recording” artist and him with headphones while he’s in studio is what my mind feels is a true depiction of who David is. It’s where I feel he belongs. (And on stage of course)  No matter how gorgeous he is, it’s really all about The Voice and the genius behind it.

David in studio, in this video, shows us just how talented he is. And though I have no technical expertise when it comes to music, even I can recognize what a true professional he is, the amazing control he has over his voice, how brilliant he is with improvisation, and how he “feels” the music and is able to so beautifully express himself through perfectly matched vocals. As someone with no musical talent, I would probably be trying to match the music with my notes and tones. But David knows how to take the music to a new level by contrasting his vocals and adding another melodic layer as well as a depth of emotion to the song that can pierce your soul. *sigh* Beautiful.

I’ve heard (seen?) fans say, “What I wouldn’t give to have David at my house for a day so I could pick his brain, or just talk to him for hours.” Me? NO WAY!  No way could I have David talking to me for a day. I’d be a nervous wreck. I love the guy but the thought of talking to him terrifies me. (But in a good way! haha) I am in awe of him and would probably be struck dumb, so that wouldn’t work for me.

But what I WOULD love is to be in the recording studio with him for a day. Not near him, just standing in the background watching. I would pay big bucks to just watch him being himself, recording, improvising, discussing the technical aspects of what he needs to do. And then watching him do what needs to be done, while at the same time adding what he “feels” into the songs. I’d love to watch his mind at work, watch his genius at work. Add to that the wonderful benefit of getting to hear that voice all day, in person. I can’t imagine it getting any better than that.

Get Here (if you can) ~ David Archuleta

Posted by clairerolfe35 on Saturday, July 13, 2013

Abrra, I feel extremely inadequate in writing this.  For one thing, I cannot find where it relates to David, and I expect it to bore everyone.  I could not find the words to relate how much fun it was, mostly to be going with my lovely granddaughter.  I threw in everything and hope you will cut it drastically.  I only do this because you asked me to and I love you :)   Will send pics.  ~ Dayzee.

♦♦♦♦♦♦

No worries Dayzee.  You supply the pics, and I’ll supply the relevant David connections.  After all this time, there isn’t much I can’t relate to David and that includes the importance of family.  The way you told of your experience with your granddaughter was wonderful and not one bit boring even without my throwing David in there every few sentences.   I had fun doing it though, and since I am responsible for supplying David content, I took liberties with your text.  My edits appear in red.  ~ Angelica

Inspired by photos of my parents from the 1920’s, my granddaughter and I take a week every summer to visit the ghost towns and old mining areas where my father worked at that time. It is interesting to see where they lived so long ago in east central Utah.

Fotor0712201813

This year we visited Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Arches National Parks and Goblin Valley State Park.  We hiked to a place in Arches where the wind had eroded a twisting tunnel through the mountain and when the wind blew it would scream.  It was hard not to relate Arches with “Archies” or “Archuleta.”  Especially when I heard the screams.  It was just the wind, but it sure brought back fond memories.

This year we made plans for a hot air balloon ride.  I know David took a ride in a blimp, but I’m pretty sure he once said he’d like to ride in a balloon someday.    The most difficult part was getting up at 4:20 so that we could be in the balloon basket by dawn.  We watched them fill the balloon and get it off the ground.  The basket had four areas that held three people in each, with the pilot in the center.  13 people?  What were they thinking?  Indeed.  What were they thinking when they put like, a hundred people in a VIP and you had to stand on sore feet for hours waiting for a brief encounter with the pilot, uh, David.  Well, he is kind of a pilot of sorts, fixated as he is on going up.  Think about it:  The Other Side of Down, Elevator, Parachutes and Airplanes, Zero Gravity, and that “like a satellite we’re flying” song.  But I digress.

Fotor0712211349

We were the only people from Utah, except David, who is from Utah but he wasn’t there, but I’m sure he would have wanted to be.  There were only 4 of us from the U.S.   There was a couple from Germany, one person from Ontario, one from Australia and the others were from Asian areas.  Unfortunately, for many fans, David has only been to the Asian areas.  I’m sure that will change when he gets back though.  Ages ranged from 8 to 78, much like the demographic of David’s fan base.  It was great hearing their stories.  The fellow from Australia had been ballooning in many different countries and he was disappointed to find there was no wild life to be seen in that area.  The only living things I have seen in that desert are lizards.  None large enough to be seen from a balloon.  It piqued my imagination that he had seen giraffes and kangaroos from the air.  David would have liked that.  He loves animals.  He might even love lizards.  I don’t know.  He wouldn’t step on one, that’s for sure.

Fotor0712211648

When we go skydiving,  (uuurrk!!!!  Wait!  What?  Guurrl, you can’t just throw a line like that out and not give details, Dayzee.  Please elaborate in comments.)  the plane reaches an altitude above 12,000 feet.  The balloon was only 3,000, but that was enough.  With the balloon there is no steering and the pilot controls altitude by heating the air in the balloon.  He then finds air currents to ride on.  We were in the air for 90 minutes.  About the length of time of a David concert.  The pilot radioed his crew where to pick us up, but as we were landing a strong wind blew us to the wrong side of a railroad track.  The balloon was lifted again and the ground crew grabbed ropes and pulled us to the side where they could retrieve the balloon and pack it on the truck they had driven there.  Just like the roadies pack up David’s gear and off he goes in the bus they had driven there.

It was a great experience that we will never forget.  I could say that about every David concert I’ve been to too.  But I digress.  That reminds me, David digresses a lot, like the way he can never stay on topic in vlogs, just rambles on and on in that adorable way of his.  Oh dear.  I did it again.  #DA2014 can’t come soon enough.  Just come back soon David, even in a hot air balloon.

You can reach me by railway

You can reach me by trailway

You can reach me on an airplane

You can reach me with your mind

You can reach me by a caravan

Cross the desert like an Arab man

I don’t care how you get here

Get here if you can

You can reach me by sailboat

Climb a tree and swing rope to rope

Take a sled and slide down the slope

Into these arms of mine

You can jump on a speedy colt

Cross the border in a blaze of hope

I don’t care how you get here

Get here if you can

There are hills and mountains between us

Always something to get over

If I had my way, surely you would be closer

I need you closer

There are hills and mountains between us

Always something to get over

If I had my way, surely you would be closer

I need you closer

You can windsurf into my life

Take me up on a carpet ride

You can make it in a big balloon

But you better make it soon.

“Get here (if you can)” Brenda Russell

Riders on the Storm ~ David Archuleta and Me

Posted by betsy on Saturday, June 8, 2013

storm-364e5ec

Last week I was working the late shift. My husband called me at work to let me know that there were bad storms coming (sometimes I am in a bubble at work, not really supposed to even look at my phone). They were already sheltering in the basement as the tornado sirens were blaring near our home. A few minutes later, we heard OUR sirens going off. I work 30 minutes from home. Customers started stopping at the store and asking if they could shelter there. Of course! By then I had checked my phone, and it seemed the warnings were widespread, take cover immediately, tornadoes sighted all over.

A couple of hours later, the customers had left, the warnings were gone, the last of the money was counted, the doors were locked, and I set the alarm and walked outside with my last 2 coworkers.

I checked my phone one last time, and noted that the tornado warning was extended for another hour. The sirens were back on. We had to drive home in this craziness. I popped in my TOSOD Asian Tour Edition, then settled in for the drive home. The rain subsided after awhile, and as I got a couple minutes from home, I turned on my camera and videotaped the drive.

(you never know what the heck you’ll see, maybe a tornado? Idk, lol – maybe I’ve seen too many TV shows.)

It wasn’t until I watched it back that I noticed the music. It’s very short, only a couple of minutes long, but there’s David’s voice amid the darkness and flashes of lightning.

Video credit Betsy

The thing is, the Monday prior, we had a tornado hit our backyard. It sheared the tops of the trees in all our neighbors’ yards but made a direct hit on our huge 300 year old Oak tree, knocking it down onto our garage, yard, pool, and power lines. My husband was the only one home. As he was stepping into the shower he heard a loud noise. Running to the back window upstairs, he looked out and saw it happen.

IMG_2645

This is a picture of what remained of our garage AFTER the tree was removed.

That was also the night of the terrible Oklahoma tornado, so I hardly mentioned it. We were so lucky, how could I even complain. Everybody was safe.

Listening to David while I was driving home was the most soothing thing. And it’s not the first time he’s gotten me through a storm. Snowstorms and other storms life sends. This is no small thing.

Thanks for riding with me, David. In your own way.

p.s I found out the next day that there had been 6 verified tornadoes in the vicinity. Lots of property damage but no serious injuries.

David Archuleta’s Announcement and My Own Personal Journey

Posted by bebereader on Monday, June 3, 2013

daca123

I have avoided watching David’s “announcement video” for the longest time since that day we saw it together in real-time on Livestream. He was hurting, or so I thought and I couldn’t handle it. I couldn’t watch him being vulnerable in front of so many people. Most of all, it hurt me to see him cry.

How would I live without his shining force for two years?
How could I get through two years with no new music, I thought.
Two years is way too long to go without a concert.

It was all about me.

I know about milestones and rites of passage in one’s religion so I should have seen David’s mission announcement coming instead of hitting me from out of left field.

In my religion, for example, when a young person reaches 13 they are considered to have achieved spiritual maturity and are welcomed into adulthood by having a Bar Mitzvah or for a girl, a Bat Mitzvah. This important event is marked by being called to read from the Torah, which is the fundamental narrative of the Jewish religion. This is usually done in temple before family, friends and a congregation of people and the reading is done in the Hebrew language. In addition, they must learn to chant in the ancient melody. Hebrew is written in symbols, not letters in the printed version of the Bible and is very hard to learn. It often takes months or years to accomplish this at the same time they have their regular school studies. It’s considered an honor to fulfill all of the required duties which I have simplified here. There is also a community service requirement.  The Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony is a milestone life-cycle event in the life of a Jewish person and is the culmination of years of study.

Having had a chunk of time to reflect on all this, I realize how selfish it was to think of myself and how David’s leaving would affect me.

Last night I was on YouTube as I usually am, watching old concert footage. Instead of avoiding the mission announcement link, this time I clicked on it! I watched it 3x. I saw it differently this time than I did all those months ago. I didn’t see a hurting David baring his soul. I saw a brave young man who didn’t know how the audience would react to his announcement and when he heard applause, was so touched that it brought tears to his eyes. I saw a brave young man who had the difficult task of telling his fans that he was taking a temporary leave from his music career. It was hard for him but he had the strength to do it anyway. I saw someone who had the courage to be vulnerable and who shed tears of relief.

Even in his absence David continues to inspire me. It may have taken me 15 months to have the courage to watch the “announcement video” but seeing his strength is making ME strong enough to wait out the days until he comes back home.

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.

They played I’ll Be Waiting by Aaron Paul in closing.

Random Thoughts From a Long Time Fan of David Archuleta

Posted by betsy on Saturday, April 13, 2013

4939016693_bea49c3d6f_o

Still here, guys.

Less than a year to go.

How have things changed? Because they have. I’m not talking about how many new Twitter followers David’s gained, or how many album sales, or how many Facebook Likes he has. I’m talking about us.

Some days I HAVE to listen to him. Have to.

Some days not.

I went over a week without, just didn’t feel like it. Listened to a lot of Gavin DeGraw and I’LL ADMIT IT LEE DEWYZE. :)

Some days I comment on posts. Then I’ll disappear for a little while.

(and it’s not always because life gets in the way, we can say that till the cows come home, but there was a time we stayed up all night discussing things, laundry decaying in piles lol)

Sometimes I think there isn’t anything worthwhile for me to contribute anymore, after five years of online fangirling, I think I’ve said everything I could possibly say. What HAVEN’T I said?

Am I as invested as I once was? Probably not. Or maybe I am. I don’t even know anymore.

I miss David. Some days more than others.

I miss his random, funny tweets.

I miss his vlogs.

I miss his random bursts of song. In person and written in tweets.

I miss planning trips to shows, and knowing, just KNOWING how great it’ll be.

I miss his smile, his laugh, his hugs.

I miss staying up late and looking for new concert footage the night of a show.

I miss a lot of people who have drifted away, not just since he’s been gone, but even before that.

I miss the friends I made at the shows. The friends I attended shows with. Had great dinners with. Held hands with and cried while the most beautiful songs were being sung to us. While Ave Maria was happening in front of us. Peeked through a crack in a door to watch David soundcheck with. Talked like the oldest and best of friends while eating some fab food. Laughed hysterically in the car when someone’s iPad ran out of minutes and she frantically added time so we could continue watching videos that were popping up after our show. Danced to TOSOD in a gas station restroom after a show. :) Ran like a foolish 13 yr old to save a place in the front row of a show outside in the cold. Sat in a chatroom till all hours discussing every minute particle of every song. Every change in our lives.

Wow, we’ve really been lucky. Really, genuinely lucky.

A year ago, I wondered what it would be like in a year. I wondered if people would still frequent the sites. Who knew what would happen? We all said we’d be here, but life has a way of curving, changing.

We are closer to the coming back than the leaving.

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.

The Ultimate Setlist ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, March 5, 2013

tumblr_mj0fdxqByv1r9dhlfo1_500

gif credit: ohnopurple

It is not an easy feat for a young artist to come up with a sophomore album. Yet David has produced a total of seven albums in five years. To quote Simon Cowell, “When you’ve got it, you’ve got it.” Back from his mission with a plethora of songs in his repertoire, he will have a leviathan task on his hands making up his setlist for when he starts touring again.

So let’s help him out. I’ve compiled a list of songs from his albums, plus songs and covers he has done at concerts and appearances.  Some songs he hasn’t even sung yet but we can dream, can’t we?

Here is your assignment, should you wish to accept it:

Use the ballot below to select 25 songs you would like to hear David sing on his next tour.  You can make suggestions for other songs, too. We will tally the ballots and come up with the 25 songs that make it to the Ultimate Setlist for the Homecoming Tour! You never know who may wander over here to read our list and take note of our choices. ;)
