The Voice David Archuleta

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.

    Angelica – did you get my last e-mail? Still trying to get that article finished. Had my oldest son’s birthday party yesterday, I can’t believe he is 11. Went shopping afterwards with his bday money and had to listen to my almost 6 year old make an excellent case for why he is in fact old enough, smart enough, and responsible enough to have an ipod, cell phone, and laptop. Not gonna happen. This little guy is an older soul like you-know-who. He even told me how frustrating it is ‘being trapped in this 5 year old body’ and asks me weekly to sign him up for various artistic endeavors such as piano, guitar, and singing lessons. He’s angling for a keyboard, I told him maybe after he actually writes some songs by telling me and I’ll write the words down for him. He told me that he needs the keyboard in order to write the songs, so he can ‘get the melody to come with the words’ Meanwhile my 11 year old tells him to please just be quiet and stop acting like a hippie. LOL!

    My book is coming TODAY. OHMYSTARS!

    No spoilers from me! But if anyone thinks he/she cannot possibly love and respect David more than he already does, he is “wrong, wrong, wrong” as my little niece says.

    Here is a nice way to spend five minutes of this interminable wait for new music. This is Jennifer Hudson singing “Believe” on the Brooks and Dunn tribute last night. Why, oh why can’t we hear David doing an inspirational duet with someone who can blow like Jennifer? Video courtesy of MJ.

    I’ve also been listening to The Prayer (Bocelli and Celine Dion) and Vivere (Bocelli and Laura Pausini). It helps the wait a little….

    Happy Monday to All!

    FG,

    “Trapped in a 5 year old body.” LOL! Yeah, I know the feeling, in reverse. He sounds like an awesome kid. Maybe you need to get him the keyboard. You could have another David in the making there! You haven’t given up on that article yet? I thought it would have beat you down by now. Just keep your head down and keep watching your back. 8) If you can combine the two. 😆 Sounds like you need to ease down a little hippie. Excited much about the book arrival? Don’t make your 11 year old have to get after you again. haha.

    Xaris,

    You mean he is actually gonna make us love him more? I hadn’t thought of that. Gaaaaaahh!!

    I will patiently (okay not patiently) wait for June 1st – somehow! In the meantime I have a signed copy on order from Bookends and another copy from B & N’s that will be at zoe’s house awaiting my arrival for our road trip on June 1st.

    Since the ones zoe ordered will be arriving any day now, I am wondering what the hubby would say if I told him “I’ll be right back – have to stop by zoe’s house to pick something up that she has for me” – after all she is only an hour and a half away:)!

    Emmegirl…I broke down and ordered from Barnes and Noble, Amazon’s order won’t be here until the 4th. Was able to refrain from ordering one from Bookends because dang it he has to have a book signing on the west coast…hoping and praying.

    Boy, we really are in a drought aren’t we? Getting tickets to David’s BYU/Idaho concert on June 19th was a crazy adventure. Good tickets went fast, like before you could even get on the site. And apparently nearly impossible to get through on the phone. Did get seats though, can’t complain! Going to be a fast road trip though, leave that morning from home, drive 4 hours, dinner, concert, drive back home right after cause it is Dad’s day the next day!! I am too old for this, but anything to hear him sing again!

    Well, Happy Reading to all. Am excited for chat on Thursday night. Will spread the word. I taught a friend who visits the site all the time (but never done chat before) how to do it chat last night. No one else was chatting, so I just showed her how simple it was, and since we were on the phone, we didn’t chat there. She is so excited. She loved the vids there.

    Have to say it again, love it here because of all of you. This is the best place to be for all David Archuleta info and love.

    This is my first time commenting here at The Voice. #13 Shawna told me about it (have followed many of the others David sites since Idol) but am new to this one. Can I tell you right now that I love it! I come here first every day. I am almost shaking with excitement today and have already determined that I will probably get nothing else done today. First, getting tickets for the concert at BYU/Idaho was a major endeavor, and I ended up with four extra tickets (if someone wants them, email me at pattiadams@aol.com)Then waiting for the book to arrive today is so huge. I am a bundle of nerves on over-drive with uber excitement. Can hardly wait for the chat on Thursday. Thanks everyone, I love you already.

    Hi Pattirae and welcome to The Voice! Wow. It must be heaven to be looking forward to a David concert again soon. Have a great time for the rest of us K?

    Hey Franie! Welcome, welcome!!

    For all who are still waiting for COS and that next enchanting concert experience, I offer my review of his first performance of Desperate, Rockford, Illinois after hearing him on a live cellcast, then watching the YouTube vid the next morning. This is almost an out of body experience for me. Ah, David. Come back to us….Come back to us.

    “I listened last night, heard the screams for an encore, heard him return, and heard my heart pound in my ears as he performed Desperate and I’ll Be. It was not so much a musical act as an act of love. I will never forget that moment. There are so many, like jewels he tosses out and I collect them one
    by one and treasure them up in my heart. Last night he gave us, “emeralds from mountains thrust toward the sky,” and with Desperate, a flawless diamond.

    He sits down, apologizes in advance, nervously wipes his brow and clears his throat and then proceeds to deliver a masterpiece. It was his first time ever
    performing this song on stage, the only song on the album he had never done, and he aced it. Did he save it for the last because he knew it was the best and deserved extra time to develop into the perfection he delivered? I don’t know, but I am having difficulty describing what he did. His voice at the start, is like smooth, rich, dark chocolate. His hands
    move delicately over the keys creating a melody so hauntingly beautiful it makes breathing an afterthought. Time stands still, yet by some miracle passes too, and sharp notes ensue with such deep angst and awesome power. He is the wind across the ocean on a dark night, creating soft ripples and pounding surf that alternate at his will. With Desperate the glittering genius that is David Archuleta is more fully unveiled, but more veils conceal a myriad of facets that shimmer beneath. He is only eighteen. And he is utterly brilliant.”

    hi pattierae! It’s so good to see you here. I met you at momjulee’s and can’t wait to see you again in Rexburg.

    Shawna, I ended up getting my tickets over the phone this morning–I kept doing redial, and it kept ringing busy so at one point I just let it keep ringing busy without hanging up and all of a sudden it connected thru. Then I had to go thru registration with the nice lady–I’d already done that on-line, but gave up as I could see them going quickly. She kept talking to someone in the background while I’m muttering to myself that we need to get this moving as the tickets are getting gone. Anyway, I was able to get them and all was well–except my sense of balance since I felt like I was teetering on a cliff for the time it took to get them. Can’t wait to get there.

    I hope I get my book–my mail-lady hates her job I think. I was expecting a certified pkg from our attorney for 2 weeks and finally found it sitting at the post office with 2 notices for pick-up, neither of which were ever in my mail box.

    Thanks Angelica for the gag order–I appreciate (really I do) the order–it’s only fair.

    The hair is not there yet. I see no evidence by that photo of a “trim”. On the other hand, the shadow he casts is EPIC. That could be cropped and used as an CD cover art. ( hmmm, note to self)

    Hey, hey, hey

    Your lipstick stains on the front lobe of my left side brains
    I knew I wouldn’t forget you, and so I went and let you blow my mind
    Your sweet moon beam, the smell of you in every single dream I dream
    I knew when we collided, you’re the one I have decided who’s one of my kind

    Hey soul sister, ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo, the way you move ain’t fair, you know!
    Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do…tonight
    Hey, hey,hey

    Just in time, I’m so glad you have a one-track mind like me
    You gave my life direction, a game show love connection we can’t deny
    I’m so obsessed, my heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest
    I believe in you, like a virgin, you’re Madonna, and I’m always gonna wanna blow your mind

    Hey soul sister, ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo, the way you move ain’t fair, you know!
    Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do…tonight

    The way you can cut a rug, watching you’s the only drug I need
    You’re so gangsta, I’m so thug, you’re the only one I’m dreaming of
    You see, I can be myself now finally, in fact there’s nothing I can’t be
    I want the world to see you be with me

    Hey soul sister, ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo, the way you move ain’t fair, you know!
    Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do tonight,
    Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do…tonight

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Billboard ranked all of the “American Idol” contestants according to song and album sales and radio play, but we asked you to vote on which singer is really the best. Hundreds of thousands of votes were cast to pick your favorite male and female “Idol,” David Archuleta and Carrie Underwood (see individual male and female results here). And over the last week, you turned out in droves again in the run-off vote between David and Carrie. So who is your ultimate favorite idol? The votes are in…. and the winner is David Archuleta with a whopping 92% of you picking him over Carrie’s 8%! Congrats, David.

    Oh,my, oh my, oh my, Igo to sleep last night, get up and my phone is full of tweets and comments during the night. I guess no one could sleep with anticipation of a vid of the new song!!! I see Cb was up most of the night tweeting with Annie from Germany. Then I leave for 2 appointments this morning, come back and surprise, surprise, a new song vid! I am luv, luv, luving it!! I think I have listened to it 20 times since I got home. Can this day get any better? Oh wait, yes it can!

    And the pictures taken last night. The buzz on Twitter was not good sometimes last night about his hair, but how could you judge from those twitpics. Shame on them!! I love his hair too. He looks so grown up and he is aging well. One of the tweets wondered if he is going for the Benton Paul look. I wonder!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to see him in person at the booksignings!!

    Did he look like he was having a blast last night or what? I am so happy for him right now.

    I am going out now to plant flowers since it is finally sunny here in Utah and 70 degrees, but I am keeping an eye out for that UPS guy to get here with my book. Better be soon, and with me being outside planting when he comes, he might want to be careful. I may knock him over with excitement getting my book from him. Hope I am done planting when it gets here, cause otherwise the poor flowers will have to take their turn after I read the book. Priorities here!!!!!!!!!!

    Have to say loved all the vids of last night songs. This is a beautiful day!

    Great new song. Even with the “issued” audio, David sounded great and the song is an instant classic. If this song doesn’t make it on the CD, I can only imagine how great the ones that do make it are.

    I took a little field trip to Borders in NYC yesterday. I got to see the area that David will be doing the signing and singing. Frankly, I can see where they can put 100 folding chairs in front of the podium, but I cannot see where 1000 standees can gather around that area. It’s in tne store itself, and there are shelves and aisles all around it. I was assured, however, that there will be “plenty of books” and David has told them that he will sign everyone’s book (like David would ever disappoint anyone because he’s “tired of signing”)

    The mall itself is beautiful, with plenty of indoor restaurants , shops, and walking areas. The store, where the line will form, has great air conditioning and a very nice coffee house, too.

    The staff I spoke to probably can’t wait to get back to normal. Every time I mentioned to someone that I had a question about David, I got that “Oh no, not another one” look (LOL). One particularly snooty gal made the mistake of asking me, with an attitude, “Isn’t he that cute kid from American Idol”? By the time I was through with her, she had her bags packed for Rexburg, Idaho.

    Well, I already set out the basket to catch the tomatoes—so here goes.

    IMO, I am NOT liking the hair. David is such a unique artist and person , I hate to see him succumb to looking like he fell into a cookie cutter type hairdid. I guess I don’t like the idea of him looking like every wanna be teen star out there, cause that’s not who he is.

    Maybe I’m too old to appreciate the “now” in look, but to me it looks shaggy and uncomfortable, and it doesn’t “fit” him. He has had several other different “dids” that make him look more polished and mature.

    I’m having spaghetti for supper tonight–thanks for the sauce.

    Maybe I’m just crabby cause my book isn’t here yet!

    PS– Doesn’t change the way I feel–I still love David to pieces.

    David’s thoughts on winning the Billboard poll…

    Winning our poll is “really flattering,” Archuleta tells Billboard.com. “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. It’s not just some teen website, you know? It’s Billboard. I think that’s cool.”

    What does he think of getting more votes than Carrie Underwood? “It’s crazy,” he says. “Carrie’s just so successful. She’s sold millions and millions of album and she has a great voice and a great personality.”

    All you Archuleta fans will be heartened to hear he’s got a new album on the horizon. “We’ve been talking about releasing a single later this summer and then having the album come out this fall,” he details. “I think I worked to get more lively grooves into some of the songs. Except for “Touch My Hand,” there wasn’t really anything on my last album that made people move. It was more light and fluffy and fun because that’s all we really had time to do. I didn’t really have time to go through the songs and say, ‘This song has a story that needs to be said. This song really shows who I am.’ So it’s been nice having more time to think about what I want to say and share with other people so they can say, ‘Hey, I think I’m getting to know who David Archuleta is.'”

I just had a big smile on my face when he drove up and unreal, I had just finished cleaning up from planting flowers and was turning the water on to water them. PattiRae was on the phone with me when he drove up and I just started squeeing so loud and she is going, what, what, and I am like it is here, it is here. She is like, what is here, and I am like, my book. Can you tell I am more than excited here? I am just rambling on and on. I am just sitting here admiring it.

    Bebe, I am scared to start reading it cause I won’t ever want it to end either. I am going to have to contain my speed reading skills and be patient and read slow to make it last longer. I just pray I can do that.

    The pictures that have been posted since I went outside are priceless. I love his hair, sorry to say. I really do, sorry dakgal, but it makes him look older. I am older too, but my 20 year old has the same hair and I like it.

    By the way, the UPS guy whose name is Monaco Trujillo, is David’s cousin, or should I say Jeff is his cousin, but they get together for family stuff all the time, like just had a cousin get his Eagle Scout award and everyone was there except David. He said lots of things, but I don’t remember it all cause I was too excited and it was such a coincidence when he asked my why I was so happy and I told him what was in the package and he said he is my cousin’s son. I am like, what a small world. Okay, I am done, Srry about the rambling!!

    Hellooooooo!

    How is everyone? 😆

    Well now, I just knew something was up but didn’t know exactly what. Boy, was I in for a surprise when I got home from work today!!! I just listened to all the videos from last night (wish the lighting was better!). And for the record, I really, really like David’s hair. I do! David is only 19 and it’s a hip, young style. He can wear it spiked up and away from his forehead or with the bangs if he wants. He has a beautiful head of hair. I believe I would like his hair any way he chooses to wear it.

    His wardrobe is another matter entirely…I have definite opinions about that. He looked great last year at the Finale so I hope he chooses wisely again for the Finale this year. 😉

    I heard David say his single would be released hopefully in July and his very much anticipated album, not until the fall? The time line for a quality CD sounds about right to me. The only problem that poses for moi is…that means waiting for a tour schedule for late fall or later this year. Fall is not so bad, but another Nov, Dec tour not so much. Anyway I will most likely attend one closest to me instead of going all over the country to multiple concerts like a crazy person. 😆

    David is beaming! He is so hyped up & just so happy! Glad he was able to be with his friends from AI last night and just be himself. Will he perform on the stage at the Finale. Doubtful, unless they want him to sing Imagine again! JK! 😆 (IMO, he should just record it. He “owns” it now anyway and I bet Yoko would be honored to have David record it if for no other reason but to honor John Lennon).

    Now I’ll catch up on all the comments…

    DAVID ARCHULETA WAS THE IDOL RUNNER-UP TWO YEARS AGO — AND SAYS HE UNDERSTANDS WHAT THE REMAINING FINALISTS ARE GOING THROUGH.
    ARCHULETA says: “I feel like I do have a good idea. I mean, it’s not, I’m sure it’s different for every person but the finale week is so crazy. It feels like there’s no time for anything and I am sure it’s overwhelming. But I know they’re having the time of their life too. It’s like wow, we’re in the top 2 here. And I’m sure, I just can’t wait to see their performances tonight. It’s going to be really exciting.”

    ARCHULETA ALSO TALKED ABOUT SIMON COWELL — SAYING IDOL WON’T BE THE SAME WITHOUT HIM.

    ARCHULETA says: “Its gonna be weird without Simon I have to say it. But I guess we’ll just have to see what they do afterwards. Because Simon, he really makes the show but he’s been great. He’s really, changed a lot of people with his influence and has had a big impact on the show.”
    COWELL IS LEAVING AFTER SPENDING ALL NINE SEASONS AS AN AMERICAN IDOL JUDGE.”

    Red carpet memories, from two years ago…

    I miss Paula! She talks about David at 2:31. Then David and Cook arrive at 3:44.

    Sorry to chime in so late. I too, will not be getting my book until after June 1st. It’s just as well since I can’t really get into reading it until school let outs. I’m excited to hear his “voice” recounting his personal journey up to this point in his life. I’m even more excited to discuss the book with all of you here. I belong to a book club and am thinking about submitting COS as an offering for next year’s book club list.

    I think that it’s great that so many who are older than David find inspiration and wisdom from reading his book. So often we discard what another person can say because of their age whether it’s young people who feel they cannot relate to an older person’s experiences or adults who feel a teenager or younger person has nothing of value to add to a discussion because the assumption is what would they know- they haven’t lived long enough.

    BTW I must confess I was a little disheartened to find out we’d have to wait a few more months longer to hear the new single. I was oh so looking forward to getting a new song for my summer soundtrack. I will be cleaning up a local beach and would’ve loved to blast David’s new tune under the hot sun. Yes, patience is a virtue I need to work on.

    Txbilslp, He is so friggin cute!

    I bought a book for my 13yr grnddaughter, she was so excited to get it and started reading right away. I think you’re right this book should be made available at all school libraries. Our youth need someone like David to look up to.

    Great idea! I am going to purchase copies for the public library and the middle & HS’s in my small town. The Amazon price was about $12 the last time I checked.

    Been on the road for a couple of days, and come home to all of this, new hair, new songs, covers, interviews ….life is good! I just love watching his growth and evolution into what is readily apparent, an amazing man.

    Agree, hip, young hairstyle… better since the the trim,loving his “the new me.”

    Covers, I love every thing he covers atleast as well if not better than original, Soul Sister, no different. He rocks!

    And I really like his new song, love the vibe, and yes the lyrics. Think this is indicative of more the style he wants to ultimately sing. Think he will also always have those beautiful ballads that showcase that voice. And those dim lit disco videos with the grooving David, aaahhhhhhhhhh!

    Off to watch AI Finals, praying for an appearance!

    I’m watching AI for the second time this season…only because I NOW think there has to be some kind of performance by some alums JUST FOR SIMON. Didn’t think so before, but makes sense. So I’m watching ONLY for that reason. Hope I’m not wasting my time. We shall see. 🙂

    Well…….THAT was a quickie. David was on camera for 5 seconds & may I just say, he looked fantastic in white head to toe!

    Where was Cook? Where was Lambert? And Clay?

    It was nice seeing David for those few seconds though. 😀

    Bedtime for me. I’ll have to wait til tomorrow to find out who is the new AI…ho-hum.

    Good night & sweet dreams to whoever is here..

    Dear SF and refnaf…I could see his smile and that was worth it…What an amazing concert with all of the well loved musicians that span the years. Alanis looked wonderful, Chicago was a big surprise and it was great to see Janet Jackson.

    My book was held up and it just missed FedEx, but it will be here in the morning…sort of a Santa thing for me!

    I finished the book! I will reread several times. For some reason, never have been a fan of no one ever in my life, like I’ve said before discouraged my kids from being fans, this young man has taken my breathe away again and again.
