Remembering Our First Crush

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, November 11, 2009

In the blink of an eye, one year flew by!  Today marks one year to the day, November 11, 2008, that David’s self-titled CD was released.  Were you one of the lucky ones in New York City that bitter cold day, who waited shivering in long lines to witness this event in person?  Or, like me, did you sit snugly at home hovered over your monitor waiting for You Tube clips, heartily wishing you were among those fortunate frozen fans?

How proud I felt as David came down the escalator at the Virgin Records Megastore to a mass of enthralled fans, waiting for a glimpse of him!  Then he stood for what seemed like eons while press and fans took his picture, and I thought…this is the dawning  of a new era of music!

Within seconds, a crowd of people formed  a line to meet David and to have him sign their newly purchased CD. I watched as he said a few words to each person and put his autograph on their CD, while singing along with himself to his own songs.

Throughout the rest of that day, David performed at TRL , miTRL and MTV.

Mass hysteria outside TRL studios as David left the premises, into a limo, headed for his next stop.


Join us in celebrating this event by gathering your memories of that day.

    David Archuleta: From Idol to Touring
    By Tyler Weaver- Wed, 11/11/2009 – 00:00

    With the Christmas season fast approaching, David Archuleta took some time out of his schedule to talk to The Daily Universe about his newly released holiday album, “Christmas from the Heart,” his rise in the pop world and his upcoming tour, which kicks off in Salt Lake City later this month.

    “It’s always fun to perform back at home in Utah and be able to give back to them, the people who have given me so much in my life,” Archuleta said. “I am the way I am because of everyone in Utah.”

    During this tour, which is largely in support of his holiday album, he’ll be traveling across the country through Dec. 20. The recording of his release, which features one original song, “Memories of Christmas,” provided the opportunity for Archuleta to let listeners in on his personal beliefs.

    “What I want to do with this album is share my testimony of this music and I hope that you can feel what I am trying to say in this and why it’s so important for me to sing about this,” Archuleta said. “You can always go more poppy and radio friendly with the music, and that’s easy to do and more appealing in the pop world I’m in right now, but I want to make sure it’s reverent and sacred.”

    Growing up in a Latter-day Saint home, Archuleta’s faith is pronounced through the 13-song album.

    “Christmas music is something that everyone relates to and has a connection to,” Archuleta said. “It’s my way of saying this is something really important to me and I really want to share it with people, about Christ and His birth.”

    His tour will feature some of the pop hits that helped Archuleta rise out of his American Idol-bred stardom, but fans should expect a Christmas-laden set list.

    “What I did with the album I want to do with the shows too and kind of lead people with that spirit of Christmas and the spirit of the music,” Archuleta said. “It’ll be fun.”

    Considering all that has been handed to him over the last few years, Archuleta has received his fame graciously. The exposure received from Idol, he describes, was largely unexpected.

    “When I went to [American Idol] audition I wasn’t expecting to be on tour and making albums a year later,” Archuleta said. “I was just thinking, ‘I guess I’ll go audition to see what it’s like.’ It’s crazy now, working on a third album; I never thought that would happen.”

    Although he grew up performing and even appeared on several episodes of Star Search at age 12, Archuleta wasn’t always sure about his future as a musician.

    “I seriously would always joke with my friends, ‘You guys are all going to be geniuses; you’re all so smart and I’ll be behind McDonald’s trying to sing for my food,’” he said.

    Until his touring begins at the end of the month, Archuleta is spending time in Los Angeles writing for his forthcoming album. He described the process as more personal and self-involved in comparison to his first self-titled release.

    “I feel like people will know me a little better,” Archuleta said. “It will be so cool to have songs that came from me and from my own experiences. I think that’s so cool being able to share that in my music.”

    As Archuleta has become a successful pop artist worldwide, he continues to push forward and expand his fan-base with each album.

    “It’s been a great experience for me because it’s kind of pushed me to go beyond what I thought were my limits,” Archuleta said. “It’s refreshing to know because sometimes you don’t believe in yourself as much. You don’t believe in your potential as much as other people do. It’s cool for me because I feel like, I guess the Lord definitely believed in me more than I did. That’s been the biggest lesson for me in all of this is trusting in Him. Because even though it’s like, ‘Well I don’t see how I can do that,’ I guess because I’ve been given this opportunity, I guess someone up there believes in me and someone up there trusts in me. The fact that that person can trust me, as powerful as He is, I guess I can do it. That in itself is motivating.”

    Be sure to check out the awesome comments, too.

    ~This journey reminds me of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. And since jeans have a way of popping up here and there, I guess it kind of fits.. and very well I must say.. 😉

    A journey that has had many twists and turns but the newfound friendships are what make it one I feel fortunate to be a part of. We are all bound in one way or another by the love and appreciation of The Voice and all the joy it brings us. Many stories told and many more to come, thanks to the Voice which is a gift that keeps on giving. Just thinking of all that has happened in just the first year….whew!! Looking forward to the next chapters to unfold, and to share it with all of you makes it even more special~

Its mission is to address issues surrounding women and cancer by helping educate women to be proactive with their health and by honoring all cancer survivors, including the more than 713,000* women who are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States.”

    So my guess is David will be heading out to DC very soon to rehearse for Kaleidoscope. This is a BIG deal. National TV! The audience, IMO, will be much larger for this show than for the ALMA show. And for all of David’s fans who dream of a collaboration between David Foster & David, this may be the catalyst which may make that dream come true. If that’s what our David wants of course. 😉

    glad you’re back Angelica!! I wondered what happened to you back up there a little bit.

    Can I share a ‘moment’ with you all? I found out that David would be performing in Grand Junction, CO. on 12/5. This is about 1-1/2 hrs from where my daughter lives, so I called her to see if she would go and take her almost 5yo daughter if I bought the tix. She was hesitant because that was the weekend she was going to come to our house. Last night I finally convinced her that she needed to decide because the tickets were selling fast. She called me this morning and told me that she and her daughter and 6yo son wanted to go. Her little girl is soooo in love with David. She is all sorts of giddy and getting to go to his concert. I’m excited because my son-in-law agreed to getting a motel room and staying there with the baby during the concert. I’m so excited that my sweet daughter is getting a break from her hectic life and spending some ‘me time’ with her daughter and son (he’s a David fan, also). I tried to get her to let my do VIP’s for them, but she preferred not to. Oh well, they’ll be happy just to be there.

    Now, I can’t wait for my time 11/24 & 25. Talk about being giddy–yup, I am!!

    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.
    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    Cloak him always in your protective arms during this time on his journey.
    Keep David and and his voice healthy and strong as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen

    David, have a good & restful night’s sleep with sweet & happy dreams. Thank you for all you do and for who you are. Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always.

    Ah-ha! David is in Palm Springs attending Ray’s wedding!

    I wonder if David sang for Ray & his new bride? What a treasured gift that would be. Can you just imagine The Voice recorded as part of their Keepsake Mementos of their wedding. WOW!

    I was wondering why David was taking his sweet time going to DC, but of course now we know it was because he wanted to be at Ray’s wedding. I guess we can expect David to be flying out real soon, perhaps in the morning. And since Ashlee was at the wedding too, will she accompany David to DC?

    Anyway here’s a tweet from Kristi Yamaguchi..

    “Just landed in DC. Kaleidescope show for cancer on Mon 2 b aired on Fox later. Scott and Dorothy on ice!”

    It is 10:30 EST. It’s still early in CA where David is, unless he caught a flight after the wedding and is on his way to DC right now. Who knows? He just said he was tired..must have danced up a storm! I’m tired too, so…

    Good night all, and for David…

    Dear lord,

    Please take care of David.
    Watch over him, protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.
    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    Cloak him always in your protective arms during this time on his journey.
    Keep David and and his voice healthy and strong as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen

    David, have a good & restful night’s sleep with sweet & happy dreams. Thank you for all you do and for who you are. Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always.

    Contigo siempre! We are with you always!

    TOfan ,
    Thanks for linking The Voice on SnowAngelz!

    Ah, yes, the template du jour! Pardon my dust all. This site is under construction and I will leave no brick unturned till I’m satisfied that it’s the best I can make it. This particular template is supposed to be very customizable so we’ll see. I am working on getting the text in the comments darker as soon as I figure out how to break the code.
    *note to self – LEARN CSS code before attempting to manipulate it. Bahahahahaha!! Nice colors though, huh?

    I like the big avatars, which feeds my addiction, (with gravatar), I know what you were thinking. 😉 That too. And did you notice? We can EDIT our comments! No more, spamming your own post with, apologies for typos and what you meant to say. Or if, in a moment of outrage or temporary insanity, you hit submit resulting in a “WTH were you thinking moment”, you can just delete! 😆 Let me show you what else you can do.

    Look up the definition of a word by clicking look up, if you’re searching for the right one.

    Insert a link by clicking on link.

    Bold or italics or quote or line through with a click of a button.

    Proofread.

    Other stuff. Not sure what those tabs are for.

    I am going crazy looking for a song for a video.

    David please sing this?

    “My Grown Up Christmas List”

    Do you remember me
    I sat upon your knee
    I wrote to you
    With childhood fantasies

    Well, I’m all grown up now
    And still need help somehow
    I’m not a child
    But my heart still can dream

    So here’s my lifelong wish
    My grown up Christmas list
    Not for myself
    But for a world in need

    No more lives torn apart
    That wars would never start
    and wars would never start
    And time would heal all hearts
    And everyone would have a friend
    And right would always win
    And love would never end
    This is my grown up Christmas list

    As children we believed
    The grandest sight to see
    Was something lovely
    Wrapped beneath our tree

    Well heaven only knows
    That packages and bows
    Can never heal
    A hurting human soul

    No more lives torn apart
    That wars would never start
    And time would heal all hearts
    And everyone would have a friend
    And right would always win
    And love would never end
    This is my grown up Christmas list

    What is this illusion called the innocence of youth
    Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth
    (there’d be)

    No more lives torn apart
    That wars would never start
    And time would heal all hearts
    And everyone would have a friend
    And right would always win
    And love would never end, oh
    This is my grown up Christmas list
    This is my only life long wish
    This is my grown up Christmas list

    happy – – do you have an edit tab on the bottom left of your comment? It takes you to an edit comment page and you can retype or make any changes you want. Then on the right there is a blue bar that say “update comment.” Just click that and your comment is the way you want it. Does everyone else have an edit tab on the bottom left and a reply on the bottom right? Just wondering if I’m the only one that has it.

I started out as a computer geek in my career and kinda got sidetracked into the financial side of things. So this has awakened yet another chapter in my life that I have David and you to thank for.

    Abrra….beautiful, just beautiful…..and yes when will the video be ready?

    Bebereader – Thanks for those videos. They are so adorable – haven’t watched them in a long time. David barely moved during CRUSH but yet was so cute. He really steps up to the plate no matter who is interviewing him or how nervous he is. David is FIERCE!! He has always been a brave soul to me, always challenges himself.

    David has grown so much in confidence since those interviews. He’s still humble & sincere, and I still find myself grinning from ear to ear as I watch or listen to his interviews. I don’t even realize I’m smiling until he’s done talking. And I feel a little silly yet so happy he’s in my life. 😀

    David is in DC, or should be, for the Kaleidoscope Women Curing Cancer Event taping tomorrow. I wonder if we’ll have any sneak-peek videos of the show? But if the event’s producers request no videos or recordings of any kind, I hope there won’t be, no matter how much I will long to hear David’s performance. I’m wondering what David will be singing? And will he have a solo or will he duet with another artist? No matter…this is National TV, and IMO, a much bigger audience than the ALMA’s. 😀

    Hope David recuperated from all the fun he had at Ray’s wedding. 😆

    Good night all, and for David…

    I looked at so many versions. I think that one and maybe Mariah’s are my favorite.

    I am struggling with a theme for a Christmas video. Being my usual odd ball self , I picked “different’ kind of Christmas song.. Now to make something good from it using what is available. /sigh It better turn out well or I will give up on videos LOL I am not using that song by David Foster. I have some thing else in mind.

    Just discovered your new site – it’s great. I don’t know who originally coined David, “The Voice,” but I concur..LOL.

    Well now that you are one of the writers of this new blog, I guess the book reading, will still have to take a back seat. As we discussed in AC, I’m also still trying to get back to being the voracious reader I once was, but it seems my ODD just gets in the way.

    Anyway, congrats to you and all others involved. I’m sure this will be the first of many visits for me.
