David Archuleta ~ To India with Love

“Had an amazing time in India at Rising Star Outreach! Very humbling to go there and even though it was a short trip it was a life changing experience. Just makes you appreciate things more and gives you a different perspective of things. Sorry for the rambling babbling and still not really getting to everything I wanted to explain, but hopefully we can get a Q&A sometime soon!”

David Archuleta YouTube 02/03/11

“A special, a VERY special young man. So sweet, so loving, so compassionate. He is simply a one of a kind human being.

Obviously he will never forget the people he encountered, the people whose feet he washed, whose hands he held. The children he sang to & talked to & laughed & played with. AND he must know, THEY will also NEVER forget the young man named David with the voice of an angel, the beautiful, gentle eyes, the hair blacker than night, the beautiful bright smile, the large hands with a soft & gentle healing touch. They will never forget David. Of that I am sure.

But I don’t mind admitting I am glad he’s home. “

    Angelica, Thanks for the great article. I love the black and white of David and the pic of the penny heart. I went onto the RSO site and you can donate any amount you want to and say that David inspired that donation. So if everyone helps a little it will go along way! David is a blessing. I really appreciate all that he has done this past year. It has taken great courage and integrity and I have the utmost respect for him. I know he will continue to do many great things. His music has helped me in difficult and happy times and his example gives me hope and motivation to do good. So….. I am grateful!

    well….that was longer than I intended..but love you guys!

    I just loved this article. When I was finished watching and reading, an old favorite story came to mind.

    The Wizard of OZ reminded us of 4 important character traits/ lessons..

    David’s vblog reminded me of Courage

    Silverfox’s quote reminded me of Heart

    Robert Frost’s quote reminded me of Brain

    The last lesson was so simple. When I think of the family of fans here at The Voice, I know there is no place like Home!

    “From an interview with Johnny Wright (yes, as in Wright Entertainment Group).

    Q: Along with On the Spot, I don’t know how you manage at all, but you also have made an incredibly impressive … of artists under Wright Entertainment Group. I already have my Janet Jackson tickets for her upcoming tour. I can’t wait for that. I love Danity Kane, so I’m excited for Aubrey’s solo stuff, which I think is coming out this year. What can you tell us about the projects and the artists that you’re currently working with?

    JW: As you know Aubrey has a solo project coming out, she has a TV show that starts March 14th on the Oxygen channel and it will go through the process of that. Justin’s making movies right now but I’m sure he will be in the studio in the not too distant future. Janet is going out on tour. The Jonas Brother, like I say, they are all doing individual projects right now with Joe in the studio right now working on his individual music. David Archuleta is also somebody that I have that we’re going back into the studio to make a record.

    I’m blessed to be able to have all of these talented people but I also have a talented team that know what they’re doing, have great relationships with my artists and have been able to give me the time to float through different things and do different things. It just somehow all works and I’m just very happy and blessed for the team that I have and artists that I have.”

I know it takes time to make a cd but I have no doubt that there will be many many cds in the Archuleta catalogue one day. After all, you can’t stop a speeding bullet. 😉

    I am drawn to this photo, a special moment so beautifully captured, exemplifying the spirit of what RSO is about and what an integral part that David has contributed just by his willingness to share his valuable time. A gift only means that much more when willingly received with appreciation. I see a gifting of emotions, where each is the giver and the receiver, reciprocating feelings of gratitude and joy. Here is a man who has been shunned by society, devastated both emotionally and by the physical destruction of this severely misunderstood disease and yet I see no bitterness or disdain shown for being ministered to by a stranger, only a genuine appreciation, a smile that somehow reflects an inner joy despite the tremendous hardships he’s experienced. And then there is David, bearing his heart for all to see, focusing on this man as if he were a family member, giving his full attention, showing care, respect, understanding and a genuine appreciation for the opportunity to help, reflecting outward his inner joy only in a way that comes so naturally for David. So David, it is I who am humbled by your experience in India for you have shown that there is so much more that I can and should do for not only those abroad but also here in the U.S. The beauty of David is that for him service is not just about one’s action and mere words but a way of life. Thank you for enriching my life.

    Hello everyone! Just got home from work,

    First, I want to say how surprised and flattered I am to see not just one of my quotes but two, front & center on the side bar AND the main article. I feel like my “name” is up in lights! Thank you Angelica!

    Secondly, I was excited to hear David may soon be recording more music! That is one of the reasons we are here, after all. To hear The Voice. To hear David do what he was born to do. To hear him SING. That he is so much more than just The Voice is a bonus. So yes, if it’s true & he will be recording new music soon, I could not be happier! Can I just suggest that David forget about not having the life experiences to sing about certain subjects and remind him that he can sing about anything in any genre and he will drive us “Senseless”, so just sing, David!

    I’ve been away for a bit, but I’m trying to catch up, so much news from the trip to India.

    Angelica, Love both posts and all of the comments. David does indeed have a great fan base. But I guess that’s not surprising considering why we are all here, whom we are following. The generosity from his fans and the outpouring of love for him is wonderful to see.

    Love the bright shining penny heart, made with love. ❤ And Abrra’s reference to “The Wizard of Oz,” so right. And SF’s quote, I’m sure she’s right. They will never for get him just as he will never forget them.

    Both David’s blog and the photos were really touching. I am so impressed with a man who is so young, and yet has so much love and compassion for his fellow man. Just like Angelica’s pennies, he has a bright and shining heart. Every now and then, I almost forget he can sing. (But only for a second. 🙂 ) There is so much more to him than just his voice.

    I’m also really sad to hear that Snarky’s is closing, but I’m really glad to see the reassurance that this site isn’t going anywhere. ❤

    When I saw the video of David, after his trip to India, I saw something that surprised me greatly. David was not the same, David has grown, I think this trip was a point of incision in his life, he spoke about his life and not his career.

    David just smiled almost at the end of the video, but during the video I just saw tired and much pleasure, had not wrinkled forehead, there were no bags under his eyes. And there was a very serene peace and brightness in those beautiful eyes.

    In the first photos taken during the event, posing, hugging and hugging him too, saw his smile, but it was a smile of commitment, I acknowledge when I see it. David had a half-smile and raised his cheeks, that’s called fatigue.

    We know that David has always been a very polite man and when he has a commitment, he fulfills it. But when I saw the pictures of David next to people with leprosy (David was not posing) and his hands touched the sick people, his eyes had peace, serenity, kindness. No words can describe the whole feeling that I saw there.

    David always says that singing is a gift that God gave him and therefore wants to share it with us. But I think, that his real happiness is helping people, his true passion in life is to be a misionero. en anywhere in the world. His real journey to India began when he visited, and helped these people with leprosy.

    With this trip I realized that David has made great decisions. I have to say, big changes are coming from David.

    On a different topic, I know that David has gone to the studio to record. I’ve told you, I have contacted through facebook Alfredo and I suggested to listen to the lyrics of Carlos Gardel (is a tango ) El dia que me quieras, but the bolero version of Luis Miguel. I hope this suggestion reaches David.

    Day Without Me

    It caresses my dream
    The soft murmur
    Your sigh
    As life laughs
    If your black eyes
    I want to watch
    And if mine the shelter
    In your light laughter
    That is like singing
    It calms my wound
    All, all is forgotten
    The day I want the rose that adorns

    Party will be donning their best color
    And on the wind and say that you’re mine
    And crazy fountains will tell their love
    The night that I want from the blue sky
    The stars jealous watch us go
    And a mysterious ray will nest in your hair
    Curious to see firefly
    You are my comfort …

    and in Spanish

    El Día Que Me Quieras

    Acaricia mi sueño
    El suave murmullo
    De tu suspirar
    Como ríe la vida
    Si tus ojos negros
    Me quieren mirar
    Y si es mío el amparo
    De tu risa leve
    Que es como un cantar
    Ella aquieta mi herida
    Todo, todo se olvida
    El día que me quieras, la rosa que engalana

    Se vestirá de fiesta con su mejor color
    Y al viento las campanas dirán que ya eres mía
    Y locas las fontanas se contarán su amor
    La noche que me quieras desde el azul del cielo
    Las estrellas celosas nos mirarán pasar
    Y un rayo misterioso hará nido en tu pelo
    Luciérnaga curiosa que verá
    Que eres mi…consuelo

    You guys are doing such a great job–with all your comments-videos- and pictures–so there’s nothing much anyone else can say or do. So I’ll lean back in my easy chair-sippin on my whatever
    ( none of your business). and thoroughly enjoy.

    Carry on

    Please forgive me if I sound uh…I dunno, harsh. But I don’t really want to see other artist’s videos when I visit David’s fansites. I want to see & hear David. Because I MISS THIS David. I don’t care if the videos are of David as a child like this audio..Sublime…

    or more recent videos like this one, as long as they are of David.

    Silverfox,

    I loved your description of David:

    “A special, a VERY special young man. So sweet, so loving, so compassionate. He is simply a one of a kind human being.
    Obviously he will never forget the people he encountered, the people whose feet he washed, whose hands he held. The children he sang to & talked to & laughed & played with. AND he must know, THEY will also NEVER forget the young man named David with the voice of an angel, the beautiful, gentle eyes, the hair blacker than night, the beautiful bright smile, the large hands with a soft & gentle healing touch. They will never forget David. Of that I am sure.”

    In everything David does, you can see the love of God flowing through him. It puts me in mind of an Andre Crouch song from the 1970’s. Here’s a link to it on YouTube:

    Even though David wasn’t there to heal the lepers physically, I think he made an impact on their emotional well being. They had to feel his love for them, and you could tell by the smiles on their faces that they loved him right back and were thankful that he was there, washing their feet.

    What an amazing young man.

    SB, Now why did I KNOW you would post that video of David singing that gorgeous song of amor’.

    And why do I find it totally puzzling and at the same time amazing and wonderful that David’s non-Latino, non-Spanish speaking fans are as excited and over the moon thinking of a Spanish album by David as his Hispanic/Latino fans are?

    It’s further proof that even if you can’t understand the lyrics, it’s the WAY David “musically translates” the lyrics which allows the listeners to FEEL the lyrics even if they can’t understand the lyrics. We don’t call David a musical genius or THE VOICE for nothing. It’s a talent that many, even the most successful singers NEVER achieve. But with David, it’s a natural, effortless talent.

    How lucky (& smart) are we to be fans of David Archuleta?

    I’m sorry if I’ve offended you by posting the Andre Crouch video. I didn’t see that comment of yours until after I had posted mine. That song just kept coming to me after seeing David with the lepers. He’s just so loving and kind to everyone, no matter who.

    Lynelle,

    No, of course you didn’t offend me. Andre Crouch is great. Today was just one of those days when I started started watching videos of David and got caught up in his vortex like I was intoxicated by his performances and how good he is live and I just wanted to show EVERYBODY! I find it incredibly sad for David’s fans who have yet to see & hear David live, so videos of David are the next best thing. And for his fans who have seen The Voice perform live, we go through withdrawals. Like me today.

    There are some really good artists & performers out there to be sure. Today, like most days, heck, like EVERY day, I just happened to think David outshines them all. Crazy, no?

    So no, you did not offend me at all. In fact, I hope I didn’t offend anyone with MY comment. 🙂

    Thanks for replying Silverfox. I would never want to offend anyone on this site. I love reading all of your blogs and comments, along with everyone else’s. There are so many wonderful songs out there, and everytime I hear one like the Andre Crouch song, I just think how good it would be to hear David sing it. I feel the same way you do, David just outshines them all.

    Evening everyone! Love the David videos posted, especially that Zero Gravity. My son was addicted to that song after he heard David sing it in concert. As soon as we got to the car, the first two things he said were, “How could they not put ZG on the album? That’s an amazing song.” and “I thought that girl next to me had set fire to herself when she started screaming.” She scared the behoozits out of me, too.

    Someone is going to have to medicate me if we don’t get tour news/any news soon….

    Still sending good thoughts to Emi, Pattirae, and Kaycee’s daughter.

    Cheers!

    Lynnelle # 62 your description of David is exactly what he is. He really have a large hand lol, but very soft and his arms too very soft. I was able to touch his arm last time when I softly called his name, since I was on his side not on his front haha! Then he turn around flash those bright smile to me and greet Hi!. I saw him twice already in person but still missing him lol. He is a humble person and he has a good memory , he will recognized you the second time around you meet him.
