Posted by djafan on Friday, September 10, 2010

September 10, 2010 Show

Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) one-hour, commercial-free telecast will air on Friday, September 10, 2010 at 8PM EST & PST / 7PM CT on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, Discovery Health, E!, G4, HBO, HBO Latino, MLB Network, Showtime, The Style Network and TV One and over 30 online streaming partners like AOL, Yahoo! and YouTube.

The SU2C broadcast is dedicated to the 12 million U.S. cancer survivors illustrating how groundbreaking research can change the tide in the fight against the disease. Updates will be provided on the work of the five Stand Up To Cancer Dream Teams, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent, will also report on other new medical developments.

Stand Up To Cancer raises funds to hasten the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. Donations can be made via telephone during the show, anytime online at http://www.su2c.org or Text STAND to 40202 to give $10 now. 100% of the funds received from the public go to research.

Stand Up To Cancer has raised more than $100 million for cancer research since 2008. Thank you for your support and please join us on September 10th, 2010 with a spectacular line-up of talent – many who will be on hand in the celebrity phone bank.

David will be there!!!

Here’s a message from Pecan Pie.

Hi Everyone,


Just a reminder to tune into the SU2C show Friday 8 ET/ 5 PT. Viewers around the world who do not have access to any of the TV networks can watch on any of the live streaming links. I’m told the streaming show will extend 30 minutes beyond the televised portion which is 90 minutes.


I want the team to know in advance that we will be announced as co-winners with the Survivor show whose network matched the individual donations for a total close to $30K. Ethan Zohn is an amazing example of what it means to be a true Survivor and what this Stand Up2 Cancer is all about. Stand Up2 Cancer is just one of many important causes he has championed all while undergoing his own battle against lymphoma. Please be sure to congratulate him or donate to the team on the site. If you call in an hour before the show begins, you may even have a chance to speak to a celebrity.


I have learned my lesson that plans for network TV will change up until the very last minute so I do not want to raise any false hopes. All I can say is, if things do go according to plan, your only regret would be missing this show! You’ve been warned people!


To those of my homies who will be observing the holiday, L’Shana Tova, to a good and sweet new year!

Pecan Pie

Total with the help of

Dave Felice and Mike Krompass!

Thank you David’s go getter fans!!!

    What an awesome week and now there is more. It is tiring just to try to follow him. Super article and pictures djafan. I just may have to bring over a vid. though.

    SB

  2. djafan said

    Thank you SB!

    It has been an amazing week all things David and by all signs it’s only going to get better.

    Oh please do bring vid over!!!!

    I updated the left sidebar vodpod 🙂

    Ram, are you saying you’ll be going to Memphis??? If you can dooooo!

  3. blisskasden said

    I posted this just before this latest article was put up, so I took the liberty of bringing it over. SU2C is yet another example of how David is involved with humanity, and does whatever he can to uplift us all.

    Skydancer1x, I agree with you. David’s presence transcends the geographic location he is in, and he is always “just David” whether he’s in Central Park, South Carolina, Honduras, or Malaysia. David relates to everyone the same. Everyone gets the same David Archuleta treatment of total respect, warmth and validation.

    One of my favorite quotes is “You can measure the quality of a person by how they treat other people who can do absolutely nothing to benefit them”. Nobody personifies that concept better than David.

    David is such a love to do this. ♥
    Catching up on all things.

    And trying to appear calm and normal as I watch my son teach himself how to drive a stickshift in the backyard. He set up an obstacle course.
    Serenity now. Serenity now.

  5. FG said

    LOL you guys! Dayzee – I liked your post in the previous article about the neck. That neck must send vampires into absolute rapture.

  6. FG said

    Betsy – did u get my tweets? We need to make plans for New Albany! 🙂 gahhhhhh

  7. djafan said

    You’re all welcome to bring over anything you want 🙂

    Here are the videos for our viewing pleasure while we wait hoping for a glimpse and praying for a performance.

    Tosod MGR

    David Archuleta’s “The Other Side of Down” Preview Part 1

  8. blisskasden said

    Betsy, when your son learns how to drive a “stick”, can he give me a few pointers? I learned on an Automatic when I was a kid, and have never been able to get the knack of a stick shift since. Pretty lame stuff, I admit.

    BTW, I hereby call upon David’s army of go-getter fans to pressure Jive to release the full version of TOSOD. I have a feeling it is David’s best song ever, and his voice has a certain “je ne sais quois” to it. He seems to have more command of the song or something. What do you think? Am I nuts?

  9. Abrra said

    I am so happy to see the album preview on YouTube Now we can have it in Unplugged !!
    Thanks!
    Abrra

  10. Abrra said

    Bliss
    I lived an exciting youth! I learned how do drive a stick in about 10 min I was 16 and my friend took me to a very busy street with many stop lights. It was do or die!! To this day I still drive a stick. And for winter driving , I’d be scared to drive anything else!

    Abrra

  11. bebereader said

    Abrra#9: And I’m glad to see that it wasn’t my computer that was having problems playing said video yesterday. While the audio worked fine, the video was chopping up like an old fashioned cartoon. On youtube it works like a charm.

    Bliss#8 “He seems to have more command of the song or something. What do you think?”
    You heard that, too? David said TOSOD was the first song written for the album and although we only heard a snippet, it’s getting rave reviews all over the web!

    I’ll be watching tonight, hoping for a glimpse, The Voice…

  12. betsy said

    He has mastered the stick and is driving backwards around the pool. Yes, the pool. I cannot look. Says he prefers it to the automatic.

    Bliss – I hear that too. TOSOD sounds almost masterpiece-ish, to me. He’s got a Paul McCartney vibe goin’ on there. But it’s pure David. If that makes sense.

  13. ram said

    Dja- I’m dreaming but you never know. 🙂

  14. djafan said

    Betsy/Bliss I also learned to drive stick first at 15, have to say though that now I much prefer automatic.

    Bliss, where you the one that called David the prince of pop? Does the mention here be a start to that reference? Sure caught my attention

    Newsopi.com
    Breaking News And Opinion.

    David Archuleta The Other Side Of Down Album – October 5 Release – While his debut single was released not long ago, David Archuleta has just announced that he is currently putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album The Other Side Of The Down. Archuleta also unveiled the album cover, few weeks ago via his website.

    A sober enough cover for David Archuleta, the new little prince of Pop music. The young singer debuted his new song “Things Are Gonna Get Better” during Jerry Lewis Telethon few days ago, the performance was well received.

    Here’s a great Elevator remix

  15. djafan said

    Ram, dreams do come true, just ask David..lol

  16. ram said

    Bliss-Just from the snippet, do you hear the difference in David’s voice or is it that the production sounds cleaner and more polished? I don’t know what it is either but I am deliriously happy about this song.

  17. blisskasden said

    Djafan, that article refers to David as “the new little prince of Pop music”. I find that characterization, although I’m sure meant to be a compliment, a little condescending. David is, in fact, the new “King” of Pop and any other genre of music he sinks his perfect teeth into. The only thing “little” about David is the time he spends not doing good things for other people or creating the best music anyone’s heard in 30 years.

    I just gave another listen to TOSOD. Thee’s something going on there that I can’t put into words, but the chills up and down my spine when I hear it speaks volumes.

  18. djafan said

    If David has the opportunity to sing tonight, what should he sing?

    My selfish me, lol, would like to hear the full version TOSOD, the lyrics seem to fit.

    Bliss, “I have a feeling it is David’s best song ever, and his voice has a certain “je ne sais quois” to it. He seems to have more command of the song or something. What do you think? Am I nuts?”

    I hear what you hear, had a restless night, could not get TOSOD out of my head, the sound of his voice, the play with his vocals just mesmerized me. I can’t leave out the beat, something in that beat that has Ram bachating…lol, it moves me to the core…So see Bliss your not nuts, I may be though..haha

    Or should he sing TAGG?

  19. blisskasden said

    Abrra, growing up in the city, everyone’s father had Automatic, including mine. Alas,there were no stick shifts to learn from. Over the years, I’ve gotten stuck in the snow many times, when a stick shift would have gotten me out. In the immortal words of David Archuleta “I’m weird, I’m a goofball”, and when it comes to driving a stick I’m downright ‘issued'”.

  20. Abrra said

    Bliss
    Its never too late to learn. Go to a dealership and do a “test” drive. Give the salesperson the “ride of their life” Haha! You need a lot of stop lights. Gearshift goes UP. Gearshift goes DOWN. LOL

    Abrra

  21. ram said

    Stick vs. automatic. Stick on a 1989 Toyota Celica GT? We’re talking some fun. lol Oh yea, it was red! Ah, those were the good old days. 😉 Can’t believe we sold that car. Shakes head.

    You’re right Abrra. It’s never too late to learn these things. Look at us techie newbies taking on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, ripping, syncing, you name it we try our best. My offspring think it’s hilarious.

  22. nanaweize said

    Just got back from picking up my mother-in-law! While driving there I flipped on the radio to 98.7. I don’t usually listen to the radio but it was a short drive so I didn’t bring my i-pod with me. The DJ said…You all need to tune into SU2C tonight..he continued to say…”our very own David Archuleta will be there helping out”! I about ran right through the stop sign…I think I will listen to that station more often. I would bet that at least this afternoon fella will be playing Davids tunes!

    #33 Angelica…I wonder when he is making his first movie? Someone must be ready to offer him a part big time. Fabulous picture…

    River#37 “Now I HAVE to stop looking at that photo above. Gaahhh indeed.”

    I don’t get it. All he’s doing is sitting there, looking at his computer screen, not bothering anyone. And when I start believing that I’ll let you know. LOL

  41. bebereader said

    SandyBeaches#40 I was in a restaurant when David was on. I relied on the kindness of fellow fans (thank you Betsy and djafan) to text me during courses. So I’m not sure myself if there was more.

    The livestream is on now, if you can get it. http://www.livestream.com/standuptocancer

    Bliss, heard that “quality” in TOSOD too. It’s tough to describe it. Remember someone tweeting right after he got to Nashville about this great song he was producing for David.

    If it is production, they need to use this guy alot!

    bebe, that obvious huh.

  64. blisskasden said

    What I love about David is that although he looks like that cute guy in your geometry class, he is , in fact, the most talented singer on the face of the earth who electrifies every concert stage he walks on. Look at the pics from tonight. Who would ever know?

    Just a random thought on a Friday night.

  65. bebereader said

    Bliss#64: So true. It’s not about him tonight; it’s all about the cause he’s supporting. He is as real and unpretentious as they come!

  66. Angelica said

    Bebe#61,

    We love us some David here, that’s fer shhuuurrrr!!

    He was so sweet tonight, so humble yet proud of his fans and what they’ve accomplished. He is such a tireless humanitarian..MD one night, cancer a few nights later. We sqeee about his outer beauty because it’s the easiest thing to do and we don’t know what to do with all the feelings he creates with his sweet soul and heart-healing, miraculous voice. He is a thoroughly beautiful gift of a human being, inside and out.

  67. #54 MY FAV!!!!! Lordy that face. I never felt confortable calling men beautiful, but in David’s case, well, what can be said that hasn’t been said already. The escense of beauty just permeates, surrounds, and radiates from him. And it’s all because of who he IS.

  68. jackryan4DA said

    More chances to screencap, YT version of David Answering Fan Messages p1 – just love his laughter!

    And if you are wondering why am using another channel well my new channel got shot down again 😦

    Oh well, TAGGB 🙂

  69. SandyBeaches said

    I have a little story on this early Saturday morning.

    I was spending time with my grandson yesterday while his parents were away. When they arrived home he was just falling asleep. The little guy is coming down with a cold and felt rather badly so I took my ipod from my pocket and played some songs for him. His Dad went into his room to say good night and quietly asked him what he had been doing? So the little 22 month old with teddy bear in arms said most distinctly, “David was singing to me”. He had been crying so I played ‘Angels’for him crib side. I won’t really talk about the pride I felt all the way around, but there was a lot of it.

    SB

  70. jackryan4DA said

    SB – that is so heartwarming, awwww. The innocents get David easily.

    BTW, any archies here affected by the CA fire? Hope all is well even with those affected.

  71. FG said

    David’s video of him checking his messages! That cute laugh of his, that smile, that profile, that sweet face! Those screencaps! My heart just did a triple pike with a quadrupule lutz, and some sort of gold medal worthy sticking of the landing!!!! I feel an immedaite need to pet his hair and hug him until he pulls away cuz it got to be too long of a hug LOL. I shall see this mysterious creature in two weeks. If I could only tell him how sweet he is, and make him understand it, that’d be lovely. He is now my example of the goodness of the human spirit. I sent him a card once with a pic of my sons and said that I hope they grow up to be even 1/4 of the person that he is. I wished him love and healthy children. I believe we will see him hold his babies in a video blog. I can’t wait.

  72. FG said

    SB – that is awesome!! 🙂

    JR – thanks for all you do!

    Bliss – If I had a David in my geometry class, I would have never ever passed the class. I’d sit there mesmerized but perhaps gleaning some knowledge about the lines and angles of his face and neck. 🙂 When I meet you I plan to give you a big hug! Is that ok with you?

  75. mikesd said

    Haven’t posted here in a LONG time but here is my view from last night… brought over from SD…(hi to all I’ve met at the concerts!!)

    Well, I had the good fortune to be at the event last night as well and will add my congratulations to those who put forth the effort to raise the money that they did. It was an amazing array of celebrities from all walks of life. I was a “seat filler” and was able to volunteer to be one of the people writing on the wall behind the phone banks during the show so I was on the stage behind Ryan Seacrest, Randy Jackson, Jay Leno, etc. for a few times throughout the show. I saw David earlier in the day just outside wardrobe and was about 10 feet away from him and his aunt but couldn’t “break ranks” to go over and say hi. It was chaotic backstage to say the least! Saw him on the phone banks during the half hour internet segment at the end of the show but was on the other side of the room. He looked great, as usual. It was a sobering event with all of the people in the audience but an uplifting one hearing of the advances. It was also a very fun event and being on the stage (only one writing on the wall at about minute 27) was a blast!!

  76. FG said

    Hi Mike! How exciting! I suppose a “please excuse me while I go hug David Archuleta” would not have worked. LOL It is good to see you!

    David’s thumbs up and peace sign red carpets pics always make me downright GIDDY. OHMYGOD I love him.

  77. skydancer1x said

    Djafan….51,53,54..OMG
    David looks drop dead gorgeous in these pics.It’s impossible to not stare. I love when he puts his hand on his chin like that.(53) He did that when he got his “ring ready marriage proposal”at book signing)just like this pic and the one that follows, I think he goes for his chin when something throws him for a loop.haha
    I am way too into this analysis. my ODD is showing, so to simplify things, David looks like a mega HOT hunk-a hunk-a in these pics.

  78. emmegirl said

    SB 69 ~heart melter~

  79. FG said

    He did such a great job introducing Pastel. He should be hired to do more announcing, mc-ing, sponsoring, anything in front of a camera. He is such a natural, and always makes everything look so easy.

    skydancer – even his elbow is sexy. Geeez.

  80. emmegirl said

    77/was just looking at some pics from Jordan’s event in Feb, quite a difference from just 6 mos ago… imagining tour next year.

  81. djafan said

    Good morning!

    David and the Crush Kids Cancer team did a great job last night! So proud they were recognized on live TV.

    Hi Mike! Glad to see you! I have to find out how one gets a seat filler job, you have been present at some epic David events, last night being on of them. I can only imagine mingling in the background with David a few feet away, nice, thanks for posting your experience!

    Screen capping has kinda become an obsession with me, trying to catch those subtleties when it comes to David, he is such an interesting human being, if I shared all of them you might all think I’m nuts…hahaha

    In memory of all the suffering and fallen on that horrible day, 9/11, here is David at 10 singing at a fire station in New York.

    This from the comments on the youtube…

    from David’s Journal dated Sept 11, 2002: We started the day by going on the subway for our first time down to Ground Zero. There were already a lot of people there and we couldn’t get too close. WE went over to St. Peter’s Church where they had a bunch of places for people to sign and write their thoughts about 9/11. Then I sang in front of the church right after the moment of silence at 8:46am. Then we left to go to the Empire State Building and t hen went back to the hotel so we could be ready to go sing at the fire station. We went over there and there were reporters and camera people all over, so the captain closed the door and made everyone listen to me sing.

    Everyone was very nice and some people were crying and they gave me a shirt and some souvenirs from the fire station. I sang God Bless America and I will Always Love You. This was the most special thing I did the whole time I was in California and New York…. David Archuleta Sept. 11, 2002

  82. blisskasden said

    FG #72, I’m a huggin’ fool, so bring it on. You’re right about the angles of David’s face. Euclid would have a field day with David’s pretty mug.

  83. Abrra said

    Last year I began making videos where I used some of David’s never performed songs.One of them is “Falling” from his first CD.

    I made a tribute video to all those who lost their lives in the line of duty, or who lost loved ones in the WTC disaster. I keep this video semi private. Today is a day I want to share it. With a warning that is intense but respectful to all.

    I do not wish to post the video here, only the link.

    May We Never Forget

    Abrra

  84. Suzy-Q said

    #64 Blisskasden, I should have paid more attention in my geography class because I never saw any guys that were nearly as cute as David.

    #55 top photo of David. It needs a funny caption. What do you think would go with it?

    An actor can be very talented but if the camera doen’t love his face then he won’t be a star. When the camera loves an actor’s face it means that the viewers can look at that face over and over and never get tired of looking at it. They want more. Think of Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp etc. They may not have the most gorgeous faces on the planet but they are certainly interesting to look at. David’s face is not only gorgeous but he has so many different looks. The camera loves him and because of that he could easily keep an audience captivated on the big screen.

  85. FG said

    Abrra – thank you for sharing. You are very special.

  86. I said

    Mikesd…Thanks!

    exciting!

  87. Suzy-Q said

    I agree with FG. You are a very special lady and I love the video tribute. Thanks for doing this for us. I remember being woken up by a telephone call from my daughter and her telling me to turn on the TV. I was living in California. I was so shocked at the sight of the World Trade Center on fire. I had been there a couple of times as a tourist. Then when the second plane crashed into the second building, it was like a nightmare that I couldn’t wake up from. I will never forget what happened. It is still fresh in my mind. God bless those that lost loved ones on this nineth anniverary. I am so proud of David for singing to the firemen at that time. He just wanted to bring some sunshine into their lives even if it was only for a few minutes. David is love!

    There was one incredible singer among others, who gave freely a piece of his heart following 9/11 and that was David.

    It was not a one day disaster but the start of something immense in a disasterous way.

    Until the troops of all of our countries come home from the retaliation from that day, we will have difficulty with any kind of closure as the months and the years go by.

    Until then, we will seek out goodness and the progression towards happiness in all of the right places.

    I agree.

    One more tribute on that subject, song is Save the Day, another never performed song. Note: the soldier at in the last frame is Betsy’s son who is home safe.

    Thx for the kind words FG & Suzy-Q.

    As a New Yorker, 9/11 will always be etched in my mind with a hurt that never goes away. It’s funny what you remember; I was in a Dunkin’ Donuts with my friend, buying birthday treats for her daughter’s 5th-grade class when we heard the news. The grief that followed in the weeks ahead in NYC was halting. There was no escaping it; it was everywhere you turned including the yellow ribbons tied around several trees down my street. The entire New York office of a reputable advertising agency was wiped out and two of the employees lived on my block. My husband had three students whose fathers were firemen and were lost in the line of duty.

    It’s no surprise that that David was asked to sing “I Will Always Love You” to the firemen on the one-year anniversary of 9/11. Even at eleven years old, his voice was a soothing balm.

    SB#69 Your ‘little story’ is not so little. It conveys a lot of meaning! Thanks for sharing!

    Mike#75 And thank YOU for the recap!

    My Mother-in-law called this morning to tell me that she “saw David on TV last night” and that she also saw him a few nights before on the MDA Telethon! I’m sure others are realizing that David is around when there’s a worthy cause, and it’s not to promote his current music.

    David, last night with Herbie Hancock!

    Bebe, that was an interesting story you gave to us about where you were when 9/11 happened. Close by to where we live, we see the yellow ribbons fastened on the trees signifying the waiting and hoping that the soldiers involved will soon return. It is the time.

    Abrra…thank you for your tribute videos. I almost put Falling up but I know it may be to much for some. I’m glad you put the link up. Falling and Save the Day are two of my favorite David songs. I hope he’ll perform them someday.

    I think David may still be in LA…Pic from Fred premier featuring Jeanette McCurdy. Do you see David?

    Hey all. God bless all those who lost loved ones in the tragedy of 9/11. Thanks for posting the links and videos for Falling, Save the Day, and David’s performance in 2002. For some reason these words penned in his journal by his young hand afterward hit me hard…”Everyone was very nice and some people were crying and they gave me a shirt and some souvenirs from the fire station. I sang God Bless America and I will Always Love You. This was the most special thing I did the whole time I was in California and New York…” David Archuleta Sept. 11, 2002.

    I remember hearing the news while I was driving in my car and actually thinking that I if I turned the car around and went back to bed, I would wake up and it would all have been a dream.

    Speaking of waking up, I have to be on the road at 6:30am “in the morning” to make the drive to Memphis and the DeltaFair with LuvieD! GAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!! To be continued…. 😆

    Somebody should tell David that he’s only allowed to be the best singer in the world. He’s not allowed to be the best singer AND the best looking, which from the looks of these pics, appears to be the case. I guess if it only happens every 50 years or so, it’s OK. If ever the expression “he’s got it all going on” applied, it’s with David. He is one beautiful guy, inside and out. That’s for sure.

    Enjoying everyone’s comments here today, along with the wonderful videos and photos of this truly remarkable young man who exemplifies the highest ideals of the human spirit. It was especially heartwarming to see David thanking Pastel for the success of the Crush Kids Cancer campaign.

    A special thank you to Abrra, for your moving tribute to 9/11. Between those riveting pictures and David’s haunting vocals, I am fighting back the tears. God bless all the families who lost loved ones on that fateful day, along with those who continue to suffer the after-effects.

  105. I’m thinking that last white shirt pic on the post (the one right under ”You may hear the voice”) deserves a background cropping 🙂
