Memorial Day

Posted by djafan on Monday, May 31, 2010

To ensure the sacrifices of America ’s fallen heroes are never forgotten, in December 2000, the U.S. Congress passed and the president signed into law “The National Moment of Remembrance Act,” P.L. 106-579, creating the White House Commission on the National Moment of Remembrance. The commission’s charter is to “encourage the people of the United States to give something back to their country, which provides them so much freedom and opportunity” by encouraging and coordinating commemorations in the United States of Memorial Day and the National Moment of Remembrance.

The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. As Moment of Remembrance founder Carmella LaSpada states: “It’s a way we can all help put the memorial back in Memorial Day.”

Day is done,

gone the sun,

From the hills,

from the lake,

From the skies.

All is well,

safely rest,

God is nigh.

Go to sleep,

peaceful sleep,

May the soldier

or sailor,

God keep.

On the land

or the deep,

Safe in sleep.

Love, good night,

Must thou go,

When the day,

And the night

Need thee so?

All is well.

Speedeth all

To their rest.

Fades the light;

And afar

Goeth day,

And the stars

Shineth bright,

Fare thee well;

Day has gone,

Night is on.

Thanks and praise,

For our days,

‘Neath the sun,

Neath the stars,

‘Neath the sky,

As we go,

This we know,

God is nigh.

One Sweet Week

Posted by djafan on Thursday, May 27, 2010

Filed by Bebereader, Abrra and Djafan

David had a very busy week! He was in Los Angeles for American Idol finale festivities. In fact it was David who provided the entertainment for the pre-idol party on Monday evening at Elevate Lounge, an open-air patio with 150 feet of sliding glass doors surrounding the lounge which is on the 21st floor penthouse of a Los Angeles glittering skyscraper.

“Had a really fun night! :). Got to see @RealBrookewhite and Kristy Lee Cook. Excited for the idol finale tomorrow!” he tweeted.

David sang four songs at the party; two covers, “Gotta Be“ by Des’ree and “Soul Sister“ by Train and two of his own songs, “Crush“ and an unreleased song “If I Could Only Be” that he hopes will make the cut on his new CD to be released in the Fall. He was at ease talking to the crowd of familiar idol-mates who were very enthusiastic as they sang along to the familiar songs and grooved to his new surprise.

Soul Sister~Train cover

If I Could Only Be~new song

This week David won Billboard’s Best Idol award with a whopping 92% of the vote over Carrie Underwood. This was based on Billboard’s ranking of all the idols according to song and album sales and radio play. Carrie Underwood won best female and David handily took the title of best male idol.  Fans were then asked to vote between Carrie Underwood and David Archuleta for who they felt was overall the best idol ever. David’s fans turned out in droves! David told Billboard that he was really flattered.

“I guess the fans I have are just really supportive. I think it’s cool that people consider me their favorite, especially because it’s Billboard. I check Billboard every week and I’m starting to get the magazine more, and I have a Billboard book, so it’s just funny that this is from Billboard, too….I think that’s cool.”

On Tuesday afternoon, we got a good look at David’s new hairstyle as he chatted with countless reporters outside the Nokia Theater.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh……

Posted by djafan on Monday, May 24, 2010

Out of respect for those who will not be able to obtain their copy of  “Chords of Strength” for several days, we are asking that everyone refrain from discussing the book on this site till June 1st.  Praising the book is OK, but no specific comments or disclosures, please.  This of course includes no posting of portions of the book, (photos or passages.)
It is after all, a conversation firstly between David and the reader.  “It’s just you and me.”  Let’s respect that personal time between him and individual fans.

For those who are interested, we will be holding a book club chat for “Chords of Strength” this Thursday night, May 27th at 9pm EST on the Voice Unplugged.  This is for all who have received the book by then and would like to discuss it.  If you do not want to hear spoilers, please do not come to chat that night.  After June 1st, ready or not, we are making our voices heard on The Voice regarding David’s memoir.  Until then…

Quiet please.

In the meantime, let’s talk about anything else.  Like this guy here.

I know. He's not there yet but it's just a matter of time. You know it and I know it.

Softly Emerging as a Leader

Posted by bebereader on Friday, May 21, 2010

“By the choices & acts of our lives, we create the person that we are & the faces that we wear.  By the choices & acts of our lives we give to the world wherein our lives are lived, hoping others will find our contributions to be of worth and that the world will be a little more gracious for our time in it.”  — Kenneth Patton-selected tweet quote by David Archuleta

One year ago, if you had told David Archuleta that he was a leader I’m sure he would have denied it, declaring instead that he’s a quiet, unassuming guy who goes about his life minding his own business.  But leaders come in all shapes and sizes.  If you’re in charge of a work situation, you lead.  If you’re a parent or older sibling, you lead.  If you’re a teacher, you lead.  If you have people in your life who admire you, you lead.  The truth is that to be considered a leader, you don’t have to be a CEO of a major corporation, nor do you have to be interesting, rich, famous or powerful.

By living his life by his own morals and standards and by the compassion he shows to others, David has slowly emerged as a leader.  And he got to this position just by being himself, with all of his imperfections.  His moral standards are high but he never gets preachy; he leads by example.  In addition, he possesses the one trait that is essential to great leadership, a capacity for compassion.  It’s hard to affect anyone unless you care.

That David cares is evident in the way he spends a portion of his very limited time off, visiting hospitals and nursing homes in his hometown.  We hear of these visits only by chance, and no doubt in many cases, not at all.

In addition, he’s involved in and brings awareness to causes that mean a lot to him.  Many of these causes involve children.  Angels for a Cause was created by David’s fans to raise money for charities he endorses including Rising Star Outreach, for families suffering from leprosy.  Last year, on the property of Rising Star Outreach, The Pathway of Hope was launched to raise money to fund a new school.

The Lisa Lopes Foundation is funding a new medical center for the children and families of Honduras.  The Plane to Haiti provides much needed medical supplies, wheelchairs, doctors and physical therapists to victims of Haiti.  In addition, David was involved in the Hope for Haiti Telethon to raise funds for those afflicted by the earthquake.  David also supports Invisible Children, for children suffering from the effects of war in Uganda and Make A Wish, for making a child’s dream come true.

In January 2010, David went to Central America on behalf of Enterprise Mentors to help impoverished families become self-reliant by starting their own businesses.  He said of visiting with many and witnessing first-hand the poverty there, “We’ve been meeting with several of the families and seeing how it’s affected them.  It’s really neat and touching to see how different other peoples’ lives can be from ours.  We take so much for granted way too often in our lives.”

When David sings, he sings from his soul.  He reaches out and touches you and brings out the best in you.  He inspires you to take his lead, do good things and be a better person.  Gladys got it right when she recently said, in The Voice Unplugged, “He inspires so much respect, no one would dare do anything wrong.”

David Archuleta didn’t set out to be a leader.  He just lives his life, and that life is an expression of himself and his values.  Through his choices, he makes us believe in the decency of mankind and gives us hope for the future.  He’s an extraordinary role model who is secure in his beliefs about what is good and true about humanity.  He believes there is good in everyone and lives this belief by being compassionate to all, regardless of their differences.  That he has touched so many lives and has profoundly affected his fans in so many positive ways, just by being who he is, has made me respect and appreciate what he represents.

In the recent Ryan Seacrest interview, David had the chance to talk about fame and about how the decisions he makes are far-reaching.

I believe he now realizes that he is thought of as a leader and that people look up to him, depend on him and value his worth.  I believe he is very aware of the responsibility of fame to be a role model.  Not accepting that fact is a choice too, and one that all too many celebrities make, but he has taken, “the road less traveled.”  I believe that David Archuleta is ready and willing to take that road and shoulder his power.  And that, in the lives of many, will make “all the difference.”

Close to You

Posted by SandyBeaches on Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Many months ago as I was leaving one of David’s concerts, the following lyrics kept running through my mind…

That is why all the girls in town,
Follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.


I arrived back at our hotel and looked up the words ‘Close to You’ on YouTube, a classic song by The Carpenters.  I listened to the song a few times and it came to my mind that we feel as David’s fans, to be relatively close to him and that emotion must have triggered the song from my memory. 

Often in the early months of David’s fandom, we questioned how did we as fans, get where we are, following the career of one fabulous David Archuleta and how did we come to develop special friendships with other fans from around the world?  It is because of the evolution in the relationship between the music industry and the fans that we see fans worldwide coming closer together in their online fandom.  It is becoming more obvious that music fans and musicians belong to each other and that relationship happens more easily because of the empowerment of the intermediary, the internet.  Fans want to feel that they are being brought closer to the music and the musicians that they admire.

The following video is of David, his family and fans from around the world:

Musicians like David, can see reviews on sites, read blogs, talk to fans on twitter and learn how everyone enjoyed their show soon after they get back to their hotel, which can be valuable information leading into the next night’s performance.  There is an increased sense of closeness to the fans that never existed before.  It is interesting to think how the potential of the internet to create relative closeness between fans and artists affects the artists not just financially but emotionally.  The internet gives names, faces, personalities and a sense of individualized realness to their audience.  This can be very powerful to the artist who has in the past been used to fans being mainly in groups held back and at a distance.

Fans of artists are recorded in history dating as far back as the 1200’s.  Around 1850, Charles Dickens, one of the most popular novelists of all time, had a large number of fans in America.  The fans of Charles Dickens novels were noted to have often gathered at the docks waiting for newspapers that carried his latest novel chapters.  There was no medium for fans to discuss the artist.

A ship from Liverpool, England prepraring to sail for America.

Fan bases today are being built worldwide in never before locations due to the ability to transcend distances through the internet.  David’s fan communities have enriched our lives.  We learn about David’s fans in countries we sometimes know little about until the morning when we awake after a concert and scramble to our computers to savor every minute detail.  We bring information provided to us by fans from web sites afar, and quickly write stories with transferred pictures and videos, for everyone to linger over.

New fan communities are building more rapidly and successfully than ever before.  The positive consequences reach from the fan to everyone involved in the making and distribution of the albums and the planning of tours worldwide.  There is a new music scene on the horizon that is changing the long-standing balance of power between the fans and the people of the music industry.

David has created an undeniably respectful and caring closeness with his fans that reach young and old everywhere.

From Argentina~Another Voice is Heard

Posted by djafan on Saturday, May 15, 2010

Article by Gladys of Buenos Aries, Argentina

We have seen David sign thousands of autographs under the sun, all hot and sweaty.  We have seen him sing in cold weather.  We have seen him all worked up, listening for the first time to his single “Crush” on the radio.  I have seen so much of David in the last few years that it would be impossible to list it all. His inner and physical beauty have increased, if that was even possible.  We have always followed his artistic growth. So much so, that I feel I am part of the long way he has gone.  We have been with him, we have protected him, we have raised our prayers for nothing to happen to him and David has always been able to weather the storm.  And if there comes a time when he is not, he will learn.  His faith and his family are the essence of his strength.

All of that learning will prepare him for what’s coming next:  more storms, yes, but also more fans.  And why is that?  I wonder, why is David so magnetic, so attractive?  Why is it that, after two years, he remains an important part of our lives?  Maybe because there is truth in what Simon said when he heard him sing “Shop Around”.  “When you’ve got it, you’ve got it”.  What has David got?

Maybe, as I once wrote, David is full of signs that marked him from the very beginning.  The most striking appeared on the season finale of “American Idol”.  On the first song, he had a star on his chest.  On the second one, he had an anchor on his back, and on the third one, he had a sense of peace and calmness for the accomplished work.

Our prince, our star, will travel the world, will only anchor whenever he wishes to, and then he will smile at us, calm, and we will be there, waiting for him, to ask him for a hug.

David has sown as much as he could.  His character suggests that he will continue to do so, but it is also time to reap what was sown.  His first pop CD, the Christmas CD, the promotions, the shows, the tours and the invitations he has been extended will be the foundations for what’s coming next.

The expectations for his second pop CD are huge, and that makes me wonder:  Is it too much weight for his shoulders?  But then I think to myself: this is the path he has chosen.  Responsibility with a touch of responsibility, and some more responsibility on the side.

Taking control of his own life, being responsible for his own company… I don’t know if he has the last word on the choice of songs for the CD, but those who make the list will be sung by his glorious voice.

Then, no matter what, he will always carry the glory of triumph upon his shoulders.

David, if you need more support, there are thousands of fans that would gladly lend you their shoulders.

Here, on the other side of the world, in Argentina, I offer you my shoulders, my arms, my… my help, if you should need it.

I hope you’ll be a part of our lives for a long time, at least of mine.  And if you ever come to Argentina, then I’ll tell you about the thesis I’m working on, which is rather serious.

Growing Up Close and Personal

Posted by djafan on Sunday, May 9, 2010

I love David’s vlogs!  I watch them repeatedly and have a favorite clip in each one where he makes me smile, cry, or bust out laughing.  This on-camera communication with his fans is such a personal touch.  You can feel the sincerity not only in his eyes but also in his voice.  Nothing fake about David.

Watching David’s vlogs over time, one after another in chronological order, I began to notice more than the obvious  physical changes of his maturing face.  I also observed an increasing level of comfort and confidence with each vlog. 

He is such a natural in front of the camera, looking into it talking to me.  That’s how it feels and I think he feels it too.  Remember the one where he coughs and quickly says “Don’t worry, I’m not sick?”  He knew what our reaction would be.  This made me think that he may read the fansites.  Who knows?

So my love for David and his vlogs triggered the idea of a vlog mashup with my favorite clips all in one place for easy access.  I purposely made it simple no frills, just David talking to us.

I hope you all like it.

Paying His Dues

Posted by djafan on Thursday, May 6, 2010

Abrra and Angelica, (in that order) discuss…the studio.  You decide.

My initial reaction to this:

Was this: David in a recording studio session with Mike K. was –O. M. G. !

Why? Why?  Is David in a messy broom closet?  This is not how good music is made.  Not only is David in danger, but the instruments are as well.  One misstep and those leaning guitars are going south.

TWANG!!!!

What is with that couch?  Is that where David sits to rest between takes?  It looks like it may swallow him whole if he dares try. He can hardly find a spot for his water bottle.
Notice his face is hidden.  I am positive it’s by design.  He is embarrassed to be seen in such a messy studio.

Jive please look at these places you send David to record in?  I want only the best for him when he works.   Nothing less!

Dear Jive,
How about you folks give David the respect of a decent recording studio? That is a mess.

Mother Angelica is NOT amused!

Signed,

Abrra

Well, THIS Angelica is excessively gratified.

Come, Abrra, let us reason together.

1.  “Is David in a messy broom closet?” No.  It is not a broom closet.  It is a highly functional environment well suited for its needs.  Acoustic wall tiles, mic stand, piano, and wall to wall guitars.  What more is needed to produce the real thing, music that is not overly produced?

2.  “That is a mess.” One man’s mess is another man’s castle.  You see a mess.  I see no frills comfort and a certain  masculine, who cares, let’s just get some work done attitude about the place.  

3.  “Not only is David in danger….” Stop right there.  David is not in danger of Mike’s guitars falling nor were any guitars harmed in the making of this music.  He has a very good rapport with Mike’s guitars and they would never harm him either.  We all recall him sweetly petting one on stage while he was a little under the weather and Mike smiling at him all the while as if to say, “Dude, just how much of that cold medicine did you take?”

4.  “What is with that couch?…It looks like it will swallow him whole.” Again, you seek for danger where there is none.  The couch will not surely swallow him.  It is comfy and worn in is all.  Perfect for taking a much needed nap during marathon writing sessions.  Or lounging upon for a good think when the words don’t readily come.  It even has a neatly folded blue blankie waiting.  Nice touch.

5.  “Notice his face is hidden…He is embarrassed to be seen…” He is not embarrassed.  He is busy.  He does not have time to grin at the camera.  He is a working man now with a busy schedule and deadlines to meet.  David would not be embarrassed by any room.  Have you seen some of his vlogs?

6.  “This is not how good music is made.” Well, yeah, this is exactly how good music is made.  This is the way many of the best recording artists in the past have made the music we still love today.  How did it get so complicated with so much mixing and synthesizers and artificial sleight of hand?  The less you do to David’s voice, the better he sounds as evidenced by the live vs studio versions of his debut album.  Let’s also remember that David and Mike Krompass are the team that created Zero Gravity and Somebody Out There, neither of which made it on the album but should have.

7.  “Dear Jive, How about you guys giving David the respect of a decent recording studio?” Good question and one that may prompt discussion that will educate us all by those who know more about such matters.  I confess I do not.  But on doing a bit of research I have learned that big labels retain almost total control and much of the monies a recording artist makes.  For example, a usual contract calls for a certain amount of albums to be recorded, usually one a year.  From what I have read, most of the time the label advances an artist the money to make the album, which must be used for all production costs involved like musicians, writers, and yes, the cost of studios to work in.  The average cost of a studio is $75 to $125 an hour.  Average cost of an experienced musician is $100 an hour.  Then there is the cost of writers, mastering engineers, producers, equipment, etc, etc…The list goes on and on.   Here is a link to an interesting article on how most recording contracts work. 

recording-contract2.htm

He is recording in several studios for his sophomore album, from Nashville to New York to Los Angeles.  This is just one place among many where he is discovering all the places within himself he wants to take us.  Whatever it takes, I’m there.

Eman-The Man

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, May 2, 2010

“How do we, like, make Eman an eternal member of the DA fan club? How do I show my gratitude for his hilarious, mind-numbing, evocative and mouth-watering tweets?!! (He should be a dessert. He should be his own DA blog. I want to adopt him.)” Quote from Bluesky

Of all the talented writers and producers David has been working with, I find myself coming back to one whom, along with Dave Hodges and Jesse Cates, wrote the double platinum hit, “Crush”, which debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and #1 on iTunes.  From the beginning, Eman has sung David’s praises (pun intended) and it is a privilege to learn more about this powerhouse of talent, prankster, angel in disguise, formidable singer/songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Mr. Emanuel Kiriakou.

Because of Eman’s sincere desire to see David’s career lift off and take flight, David’s fans feast on Eman’s daily tweets:

Crossed the mountain today with @davidarchie. He took everything up 10 notches as usual! We’re on the final stretch. Stay tuned! 8:28 PM Apr 27th

These @davidarchie songs that I wrote with @claudekelly and @hodgesmusic have taken on a life of their own! They will be what they will be.. 5:13 PM Apr 27th

About to cut a new song with @davidarchie. I think this is #5? Not a weak one in the bunch!! 5:26 PM Mar 19th



Most people are unaware that Eman produced, arranged and played acoustic guitar, electric guitar, piano, keyboards and percussion for “Joy To The World” on the “Christmas From The Heart” album.  In addition, he produced “Come All Ye Faithful” and did the arrangement for “The First Noel”.  He also co-wrote “To Be With You” and “My Hands” on David’s self-titled CD.

Aside from working with David, Eman is also collaborating with Nick Lachey, Elliott Yamin, Friday Night Boys, David Hodges, New Kids on the Block, Ry Cuming, Axiz, Vanessa Hudgens, Lesley Roy, Celine Dion, Backstreet Boys, Cheetah Girls, Frankie Storm, James Fauntleroy, Kara DioGuardi, Jess Cates, Lindy Robbins, Guy Chambers, Evan Bogart, Craig Wiseman, Chris Tompkins, Troy Verges, Tia Sellers, Blair Daly, Darryl Brown, Zukhan Bey, Ashley Gorley, JR Rotem, Sacha Skarbek, Kasey Livingston, Jeff Cohen and Corte Ellis.

Bio

At six years old Eman received his first guitar, one that made his hands turn green and by twelve, he was playing in his father’s Greek band.  Like David, he knew early on what he wanted to do with his life and attended Ohio’s Youngstown State University where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Music.  During college, he worked as a cook at his family’s Greek restaurant while moonlighting as a guitar teacher.  After college, Eman had a short stint teaching music theory and song writing but quickly moved on to record for Target’s exclusive Lifescape’s label where he recorded and produced over 20 albums.  During this time he wrote TV jingles for Burger King, BMW and Miller Light beer for which he won a Clio Award.  An established instrumentalist and singer/songwriter by the late 90’s, Eman began to focus on his solo career.  He collaborated with singer/actor Joey Mcintyre on two cds, “Meet Joe Mac” and “One Too Many”.  He also released his first cd, “Favorite Enemy“ in 2002. Eman’s music has been featured in TV shows and major movie soundtracks including “Achilles’ Love” and the award-winning, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, which showcased some of his original Greek music.

List of artists/songs

Nick Lachey “What’s Left of Me” – Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100/received 2007 ASCAP Pop Award
Taylor Hicks – “Just To Feel That Way”
Jordin Sparks – “Next to You”, “Permanent Monday” and “Worth The Wait”
Celine Dion – “Surprise, Surprise” and “There Comes A Time”
The Backstreet Boys – “Inconsolable” and “Downpour”
Eman also wrote/produced on albums by Katharine McPhee, Ashley Tisdale, Bianca Ryan and Jesse McCartney.

By co-writing “Crush“, Eman helped launch David from an American Idol star to a hot ticket on the Billboard 100 chart.

Will Eman again be the one to help create the next hit single for David?

My money’s on The Man.
