davidarchie Y tu y tu y tu, y solamente tuuuu. Throwback to when I would hear this song walking down the streets in Chile SIEMPRE. Como quisiera cantar como @pabloalboran. (With a nice pumpkin in the background for your fall touch) #canto #singing #singsong#music #musica #solamentetu#pabloalboran #pumpkin #calabasas


This is the translated chorus David is singing, it’s a beauty.

You make my sky
Have that blue again,
spots of colors,
my mornings only you.
I sail among the waves of your voice
and you, and you, and you, and only you
make my soul wake up with your light
and you, and you, and you, and only you
make my soul wake up with your light
and you, and you, and you…

 David Archuleta’s “#minivlogger” latest instagram just because🙂

davidarchie I’m just sitting at my gate in LAX waiting for my flight to take off and then think “…Why can I hear myself? Is someone messing with me?” It’s funny when everyone you’re around is listening to you and they don’t know it’s you. Probably don’t even notice nor care to be honest but It’s still kinda funny. I wish I could do that in real life–just sing in the airport all I want out loud and know one knows or cares. 🎤#lax#airport#crush#minivlogger

As always, hoping for videos, pictures any news from the events🙂

Christmas concert dates and Venues announced!


 I’ll be adding ticket sale information as it becomes available in the thread.  You can also check David’s OS or his booking agency Windish.

David Archuleta ~ Performs Today for TOFW in Madison, Wisconsin

Posted by djafan on Friday, September 9, 2016


credit David Archuleta instagram

davidarchie we decided to go with Chinese food in Wisconsin. But here’s why: Kari couldn’t go to China and Taiwan so we’re doing it in honor of her. 😀



David Archuleta gained worldwide recognition as a musician when he was just 16. In 2008 more than 30 million television viewers fell in love with his angelic voice and made him runner-up in Season 7 of the popular US competition “American Idol.” David credits his parents with shaping his musical style which he began to cultivate when he was very young. He won the children’s division of the Utah Talent Competition when he was just ten, and the Junior Vocal Champion award on Star Search 2 when he was 12. Since his time on American Idol, David has been a guest performer with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, topped billboard charts and released six studio albums including, “David Archuleta– Glad Christmas Tidings”, and “Begin”.

In 2012, David put his singing career on hiatus so he could serve as a full-time missionary in Santiago, Chile and described his experience of the mission as “a dream come true.” David returned from Chile in March 2014 and has since traveled to the Middle East to perform for U.S. troops, recorded the song “Glorious” for the recently released “Meet The Mormons” movie, and been busy writing songs for a new album that will be released in 2016.

Last TOFW there were some awesome fans who shared some awesome videos. So hoping for the same this time around! Hope all that are attending enjoy!  Here is one of my favorites.

Abrra “Flips” Over David Archuleta

Posted by Abrra on Monday, August 29, 2016

  • davidarchie  In the studio with Jeremy Bose. For those of you who know the songs My Kind of Perfect and The Other Side Of Down, Jeremy produced and cowrote those. We’ve written and produced 3 more for this new project and this is a 4th one where we’re trying something a little different and more moody. Jeremy can do it all though.#newmusic #moretocome #music#nashville #studio #TN #JeremyBose


  • davidarchie  Nothing like a good start to the morning. I may not be dressed for a photoshoot but I actually really am doing a photoshoot today! Time to get some good shots together to go wth these songs! #goodmorning #workout #morning #photoshoot

Some much-welcomed news today for fans of David Archuleta!  He has announced from his  Nashville Archu-Cave that he will be doing a new photo shoot in support of his new songs! It seems that the long wait just might be over for fans who are craving new music.

After extensive study of the Archuleta IG post, I spotted that the film was shot backwards. This is what happens when a video is shot with the front facing iPhone camera. What you say? We can’t have that! I will not let this go unchallenged. It must be corrected and I hopped on the case immediately.

At first look I thought that his face looked different in the still shot before running the film. As the video played I heard the great news of the photo shoot, but I also noticed his chocolate chip mole had slid to the opposite side of his neck!  What?

How can this be?

I went into my magic tool box, pulled out my “video-flipping” device and flipped that thing right to left. Now we have everything working as intended with the great smile he gives us and the mole properly back at its home base.

Exhibit A is my YouTube video of the flipped IG post.

I have now put the Archuleta world back on its axis!

David Archuleta ~ #Shanghai #shanghaibabyshome #China #orphans #Littlesnow

Posted by djafan on Monday, August 22, 2016


One of the highlights of our time in Shanghai was getting to visit the Shanghai Baby’s Home. It was started to help kids in orphanages who need lifesaving treatment. It was touching. These littlest ones are people who can’t help themselves. I’m amazed by Daisy and the Shanghai Baby’s Home crew who constantly are fighting to help these kids’ lives. So glad that the Cook Family brought us here! It reminds me that I need to be grateful that I’ve had a home and a family who has taken care of me. We played in the play room and made forts. The kids saw my phone though and seemed to know that there may be some games on there. 😳😅. They immediately found a Disney game that I whip out from time to time. Glad we could all share a love for Disney. Link to their Facebook will be in my bio.#Shanghai #shanghaibabyshome#China #orphans

I had to post one more. This is little Snow. She has a congenital heart defect and lives at the Shanghai Baby’s Home. She has had one operation and is going to need another one. It was awesome getting to play with her for a little while trying to show her pictures of a cat. She was more interested in the paper cover though. I guess it had a shine to it that she preferred over the pictures. 😂 Photo Credit: Daisy at Shanghai Baby’s Home #Shanghai#shanghaibabyhome #orphan #China#Littlesnow


This needed a place of its own.

By Guest Writer FenFan, “David Archuleta Tours Taiwan”

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, August 10, 2016

ClsOAuQVAAEcESE.jpgsaffprdcredit: Shelley

Patience has paid off for fans of David Archuleta in Taiwan. After waiting 8 long years, they are finally going to see the guy they call Sunshine David perform in Taiwan from August 11 – 17, 2016. The tour, at the invitation of the LDS Church, will take him to seven cities around the island in as many days. 
Here’s the schedule, according to David Archuleta in Taiwan Facebook page:

10 August 10am     Press Conference, Jinhua Street Church in Taipei

11 August   7:30pm Forget Year, Know Music Concert, Taichung Seaport Art Center in Taichung

12 August 7:30pm     Love in the Family Concert, Tainan Cultural Center in Tainan

13 August 2pm            LDS Community Awards Ceremony and Concert, Jinhua Street Church in Taipei

14 August  2pm             Concert of Hymns and Chinese Music, Tzu Chi University Hall 8101 in Hualien

15 August 2pm               Appointment with Youth Concert, National Hsinchu Commercial and Vocational High School Stadium in Hsinchu

16 August  7:30pm          Hope, Love Public Benefit Concert, Chiayl City Culture Center Music Hall in Chiayi

17 August 7:30pm           Concert (Untitled), Kaohslung Labor Affairs Bureau 1st Floor Auditorium in Kaoslung

I googled some of the venues and found that the concert hall in Taichung seats 546 people. It is equipped with a proscenium stage and the building’s white roof is shaped like a bamboo hat. If the title of the concert here sounds a bit strange it’s because it’s a word for word translation of 忘 年 知 音 which I do not know how to translate into English! 忘 = forget, 年 = year or age, 知 = know, 音 = music or sound.

Taichung is in central Taiwan, just over a two-hour drive from Taipei.  From Taichung, David will head south to Tainan, about two hours by car.  He will perform at the Tainan Cultural Center which has a Performance Hall in a 3-storyed building.  The Hall has 1803 seats in a fan-shaped area. The Cultural Center also has what is called “The Native Theater International Hall” which seats 260.

Next, it’s back to Taipei for his performance at the LDS Community Awards at the LDS Temple in Jinhua Street.  The temple was the earliest  meeting place for Mormons in Taiwan.


After the Awards, David will head to Hualien, two and a half hours by train or 45 minutes by plane from Taipei, on the east coast of Taiwan.  David will be singing hymns at this Sunday performance at Tzu Chi University.  Tzu Chi U is a private university set up by the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation and is well-known for its College of Medicine.  But I think this performance has nothing to do with the University and they are just using the facilities.

Midway through the tour, David will be in Hsinchu in northwestern Taiwan. Hsinchu, known as the Windy City, is home to six universities and many elementary, middle and high schools.  So it’s no wonder the concert here is billed as an “Appointment With Youth”.

After Hsinchu, David moves south again to Chiayi where he will perform at the Music Hall in the Chiayi City Culture Center which also has a museum and a library.  The Music Hall has 1113 seats.  It’s stage curtains were designed by Chinese master painter, Lin Wu-Shan.  They are made of hand-woven silk and satin and have a lotus pond theme.
According to the David Archuleta in Taiwan Facebook page, David will be the only performer in the Chiayi concert. Rumor has it that he will be singing a new song that he is currently recording, at this concert and at the next one in Kaohsiung. David’s performance in Kaohsiung will be the final one of this tour.  
Kaohsiung, in the south, is Taiwan’s largest port and second largest city. The Love River which runs through the city is a popular sight-seeing spot. Visitors can take long walks or cycle along the river banks or go water skiing. There are also lots of cafes, bars and restaurants on the river banks.
 Love River

I hope that despite his busy schedule, David can find time to see some sights and sample some of the delicious cuisine of Taiwan. First on the list – stinky tofu – smelly cubes of deep fried tofu, crispy on the outside and like soft custard on the inside, slathered with a sweet and spicy sauce. I don’t like it but I think David should take a bite just so he can say he’s had a taste of this iconic Taiwanese snack. He’ll just have to hold his nose while eating it.


If stinky tofu is not to his liking he can try some beef noodles, fish balls (not what you think! these are minced fish shaped into balls), braised or roast goose, suncakes or taiyang bing (crispy, crumbly pastries filled with honey or taro paste), oyster omelettes, lurou fan (five-spice braised pork spooned over rice), and san bei ji or three-cup chicken (so-called because the chicken is cooked in a cup each of oil, soy sauce and wine). I could go on and on but you get the drift. There’s lots to eat! Oh and before he goes home, he should buy some pineapple pastry as a food souvenir. These small pastries are made of candied pineapple wrapped in a buttery, crumbly pie crust.

Finally, if there is just one thing I hope David would do, it would be to sing a song in Mandarin. How about this one – The Moon Represents My Heart (Yuèliàng dàibiǎo wǒ de xīn) – a classic romantic ballad made popular by Teresa Teng, arguably the most famous Mandarin pop singer in the world at the time of her death in 1995.

PS  Some useful Mandarin phrases David could say or hear at his concerts.
– Hello: Nǐ hǎo
– Good evening: Wǎnshàng hǎo
– Thank you: Xièxiè
– Thank you for welcoming me to Taiwan: Xièxiè dàjiā huānyíng wǒ dào táiwān
– I love you: Wǒ ài nǐ  He might not want to say this but if he hears it he would at least know what they are yelling and he can reply xiexie!
– Sunshine David: 陽光 大衛 Yángguāng Dà wèi. This is the nickname that the Taiwanese have given him.

Official lyrics

We out here grinding we working X 4

Tell me how to do it and I do/
Fuelin my ambition like I’m filling up a pool/
Aint my choice but its up to me to choose
Hammered out my goals like I’m working with my tools/

On the same page like da headline news
even jimmy fallon couldn’t shake me out my roots/
best foot forward like we dancing wit a groove/
we gone stay grinding till We all make a move\

Said are you gonna find it , baby my way
Are we gon grind or are we gon play
We gon give it time never gonna wait
Said it either black or white but no grey

We out here grinding we working X 4

We could only win never loose/
Cause the only thing we ever share be da truth
We gon feed the fire till its burnin down the roof
Focus on ya heart cause the feels be the proof

Yeah cause my soul lighting up like a fuse.
Always down to share never “thats our food”
shoulder to the wheel like a nascar
Head in the word baby thats our school

Are you gonna find it baby my way
Are we gon grind or are we gon play
We gon give it time never gonna wait
Said it either black or white but no grey

We out here grinding we working X 4
