March Madness Sparks Plans as David Archuleta Draws Closer to Fans

Well, here we are! Over two years ago we sat in shock after hearing David’s announcement telling us that he would be gone from the music world, from our world, for two years. Even when we eventually reached the acceptance stage and understood his reasons for going, we still felt an uneasiness. “What would we do? What would happen without him for that long?” That was the reality that was sinking in for so many of us.

Each of us had our own reason for feeling the way we did. For some, David’s uplifting music was a balm for their souls that would be sorely missed. For others, he was a source of joy in a sometimes otherwise difficult life. Others would miss the friendships, the camaraderie, this fandom he created. Others would miss the live concert experiences. And for some, his vlogs made them happy in a way they still can’t explain. For each of those reasons and many more, we felt there would be a void that couldn’t be filled without him here. As great as videos are, and as grateful as we are that we had all those videos, they is just no substitute for the real thing. Yet, here we are.  Somehow we managed to make it to 2014.

Perhaps David understood how we felt. His working so hard before he left to leave us with a mini-series to watch, and new music to explore and savor, helped tremendously. The vlogs and photos shared by his team while he was gone helped too. And even though he was so many miles away, we were given the privilege of seeing him sing at Christmas both years, through the generosity of his church in making those events open to the public and posting videos online for all to enjoy.

It’s been a long two years and perhaps the hardest part is yet to come. These last days seem to be eerily quiet. We’ve spent the past two years looking back at all the amazing performance videos, those wonderful gifts from fans, remembering what a phenomenal talent he has always been. But it’s now so close that we’ve stopped looking back because the future is just over the horizon, almost within our grasp.

The videos we saw at Christmas show a David who is still the same and yet so very different at the same time. While we are no longer looking back, we have no idea what that future will bring. The excitement we feel about his return has us sitting on the fence between the past and the future, a future we know in our hearts will be bright and wonderful for David. How could it not be?

While we wait out the last days before his return, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the admins here at The Voice, and all of David’s fan sites, for their hard work in keeping us together for all these months and for making it so much fun!  Thank you for sharing the smiles, the laughter, and the tears these past two years.  And to all the fans who are still here, kudos for hanging in there! It will be worth the wait! It won’t be long now. We’re in the home stretch and it’s time to look ahead! Who’s ready for David?  Vlogs and videos and concerts, OH MY! What will YOU be doing to get ready for David’s homecoming?

Here are a few of the things I’ve jotted down on my own “to do” list.

1. Check the piggy bank.

2. Tune up my engine. Include the car engine as well.  Road trip!!!

3. Shop for tour clothes.

4. Pull out all my David Archuleta shirts, jackets, pins, bracelets, etc. Put them all on and dance like nobody is watching. Make sure.

5. Sign up for ILAA which is now VIP Nation cuz you know I want that VIP ticket.

6. Review all the lyrics of David’s songs by playing all of his CDs and singing with him at the top of my lungs like nobody is listening.  Make sure.

7. Buy a new computer/IPad to watch David videos.

8. Buy a new camera to TAKE David videos.

9. Practice my chair-scooting!

10. Practice my salsa dancing!

11. Practice jumping in the event of zero gravity.

12. Practice breathing in the event of no air in my lungs from screaming and jumping and dancing and scooting.

13. Scrap #12 and invest in a portable O2 tank.  See if you can bundle a portable lifepak with it at a discount.

14. Get back on that diet!!

So.  What’s on your list?
