The Voice David Archuleta

David Archuleta ~ Invisible Children 25 Hours Of Silence Event

Posted by djafan on Monday, April 25, 2011

Invisible Children

How it Started

In the spring of 2003, three young filmmakers traveled to Africa in search of a story. What started out as a filmmaking adventure transformed into much more when these boys from Southern California discovered a tragedy that disgusted and inspired them, a tragedy where children are both the weapons and the victims.

After returning to the States, they created the documentary “Invisible Children: Rough Cut,” a film that exposes the tragic realities of northern Uganda’s night commuters and child soldiers.

The film was originally shown to friends and family, but has now been seen by millions of people. The overwhelming response has been, “How can I help?” To answer this question, the non-profit Invisible Children, Inc. was created, giving compassionate individuals an effective way to respond to the situation.

Read the rest of the story here

The boys filming in 2004

Before becoming a celebrity, David Archuleta was a supporter of Invisible Children. His involvement  introduced me to this cause. I remember the leather bracelet he wore on the Bonnie Hunt show, the Invisible Children t-shirt Dawn gave him that he wore on several occasions and his willingness to share with anyone who asked what they stood for.

‘Break the Silence’ Details from INVISIBLE CHILDREN on Vimeo.

Event Details:

After 25 years of war waged by Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army, Invisible Children is getting loud… by shutting up. But after the silence ends at 8:00 PM on April 25th (in every time zone), it’s going to get even louder.

Break the Silence is happening in 18 cities across the U.S and will mark the end of the Invisible Children community’s 25 hours of silence for 25.

Break the Silence will unleash the voices of the thousands who are going silent and who have raised at least $25 to fund The Protection Plan – Invisible Children’s work to protect innocent civilians from LRA violence. (More information can be found by clicking here: Protection Plan.)

We’ll end this with two quick acronyms: RSVP ASAP. The cities will fill up, so now that you’ve raised your money and committed to 25 hours of silence, get your name on this list and we’ll see you at one of these cities.

Schedule of the night’s events:

April 25th, 2011

6:30PM – Doors open

7:30PM – 30 Minutes of Silence Begins

7:55PM – Break the Silence Video Begins

8:00PM – Silence is Broken

8-9PM – Celebration with new IC Media, Ugandan speaker, IC Roadies and musical performances

This message from Lauren Bailey (Invisible Children Team) via AFS

Come Monday—you name the price $$ for the event, all goes to ending a 25 year long war.

I just flew in to sunny Nashville, the birds are chirping and sky a’ clear blue. While taking in the scenery I hopped over to Allen Arena to check out the set-up for Monday’s Nashville 25: Break the Silence Event and got PUMPED.

This event is happening in 3 days, and it’s going to be amazing, I promise.

I want all of you to be able to come and experience Evelyn (our Ugandan speaker), performances from David Archuleta & Landon Pigg, as well as IC’s newest media…released yesterday.

But I know some of you are a little concerned about the raising $25 part. So, here’s the deal. Those of you who raised the $25—we love you. Thank you for your commitment, support and trust. You WILL be honored at this event.

However, I know a lot of you are college students with minimal incomes and maybe some with debt. We still want you to come be part of this monumental evening.

So, all of that is to say: You’re invited, don’t freak out about the $25. It’s suggested, but your attendance is more important.

YOU CAN STILL COME IF YOU HAVEN’T RAISED $25.

We will be taking donations at the door. If you haven’t RSVP’d then you can just drop your money in the donations bucket, and enter. You name the price ($5, $25, $100, you decide).

Just come, soak in the bliss of people coming together for a just an honorable cause—plus some sweet music and media.

However, do us a favor and stay silent. We’re breaking the silence at 8PM—please don’t be that kid who tries to do so beforehand. Thanks and can’t wait to see you there!

-Lauren + the Invisible Children Crew


David has been tweeting about his participation and support for Invisible Children.  There are 18 cities who will be hosting this event and the concerts to break the silence tonight at 8pm Central Time.  Three of those cities will be live streaming and one of those is Nashville where David is scheduled to perform.

This from PRNewswire:

David Archuleta “Breaks the Silence” with Invisible Children in Nashville, TN

100,000 young people have pledged 25 hours of silence to conclude Invisible Children’s national ’25’ campaign; the organization is hosting events in 18 cities across the country where partnering musical artists will “break the silence”

SAN DIEGO, April 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Invisible Children is excited to announce David Archuleta as the most recently added headliner for their event: Break the Silence, which is the end of their campaign ’25’ that launched earlier this year. The former American Idol contestant, one of the youngest ever, will take the stage at Lipscomb University’s Allen arena in Nashville, TN, on Monday, April 25th, to raise awareness and funds to end Africa’s longest running war.

    It’s so quiet here today. I guess we’re all just sitting here waiting and wondering what he’s going to do tonight. How many songs will he sing? WHAT songs will he sing? Will it be inspirational like the ones above? Or will he be singing TOSOD songs with a new twist?

    I can’t wait to find out.

    This charity is still one of my most special…the most dear to my heart. Why? I don’t know. I really don’t. I guess it just reminds me of how comfortable my family and I have it. How much we take for granted every day in our peaceful, liberated country. While I can’t participate in the 25 hours silence (work won’t let it be), I can donate, I can wear a bracelet again, and I can pray for these children and the campaign to free them. Thank you, again, to David for making people like me aware of these special children, and children in unkind situations around the world (RSO & bullying).

    Thank you djafan for this information. I hope the link above will let me view the happenings tonight. 🙂

    Good Morning!

    Tawna,

    After watching and reading so much information on Invisible Children I could see why this touch David at such a young age. The thought of being taken away from your family for any reason is devasting, that these mercenaries do it for killing is incomprehensible. If anyone goes to the IC link they will find an extensive amount of videos and articles about this cause.

    MT, Does typing equate to talking? lol I know I’m exhausted from yesterday’s celebration and having to come to work is tough.

    What will he sing? Brian (guitarist) and Stephen (drummer) both have tweeted that they will be in Nashville with David today so this will be the first performance with band, an acoustic set they say and with David headlining I’m hoping for at least 8 songs 🙂

    I’m so hoping David sings something from TOSOD. I’m suffering from withdrawal symptoms from never seeing those songs performed live.

    Twitter is buzzing with fans speculating over which songs David will sing. I’ve been compiling a list…

    Bless The Broken Road
    Maybe I’m Amazed
    Somebody Out There
    Nothing Else Better to Do

    The link for the Livestream is in the article above the POTC video.

    They said they will show some Invisible Children videos and talk about the program. David may not be on right away.

    The sound check was just a quick thing where they changed the feed to the venue for a min or so. I am not sure if they showed a whole song.

Nobody puts the feeling into that song like David does–not even Kurt Bestor, and he does a dang good job with the song. I’ve decided that I want to hear David do ‘The Sounds of Silence’ some more. And what was that new song he did? Gah! Amazing! Can’t wait for some videos, and there ought to be some good ones–the livestream was really good from Nashville.

    Well, I finally managed it. I turned of Gotta Get Thru This. Now I am sittin’ in my silent house with my sleeping cat beside me.

And then he takes you with him, (and you feel it’s grace. :)) I have never experienced anything like it, and I know I am far from alone feeling this way.

    It is way too late to be thinking about this stuff. Good night everyone.

    after last night’s performances, particularly POTC, GGTT/MIAB, i am hoping, PRAYING for additional performances, hopefully in CA. i will be seeing David at Stadium of Fire in July…but it just seems SO FAR away! at this point, i will pay to see him sing anything, anywhere near me. he’s undone me once again. i’ve been gobsmacked by this funky, organically soulful David. i always knew he had it in him, but it now seems like the “perfect storm” has arrived…and it definitely has blown me away, lol. my initial response after watching the GGTT vid last night was..HIS VOICE. OMG, HIS VOICE. I WOULD SAY “LIKE BUTTER”, BUT IT’S BETTER THAN BUTTER. OMG! :DDD.

    Abrra,

    Thank you so much for the mp3 download of David’s entire set! What a gift it was to be able to listen & re-live in my mind what we all witnessed last night.

    What started out to be nothing new when he began his set with TOSOD very quickly turned into everything new & wonderful. We are pretty much used to David changing up his songs but there was a new vibe last night. His POTC was his best yet I think because of the simplicity of it with just his beautiful vocals and the guitar. And may I add, his guitar player is nothing short of spectacular. He’s nice to look at too, but I really didn’t notice at first because I was so impressed with the music coming from his guitar. I mean it when I say he is bar none, the best guitar player David has ever had & he’s had quite a few. You can really HEAR how good he is when you listen to his accompaniment to David’s POTC with earbuds. I must apologize that I don’t know his name. So shame on me. But I just had to give him much deserved kudos.

    And of course I can’t get enough of David’s cover of Gotta Get Through This! It was genius how he added MIAB at the end! Reminded me of his DLG when he would add “I know How to Save a Life” at a certain point but only when he felt like it cause he didn’t do it all the time. Steven, his percussionist (he’s not just a drummer) added a special flavor and something different to look forward to in the future.

    If these two band members are any indication of the talent we can expect from the whole band, we have so much to look forward to! Hopefully David will be adding & announcing some additional appearances besides MB & SOF so we can make plans. I am very fortunate to be meeting up with my sister from Albuquerque & SandyBeaches in Myrtle Beach. Can’t make the SOF, but hope to see David more than once this year! OMG, definitely YES!

    I am so full blown ODD, over the top, crazy in love, with David’s Gotta Get Through This performance it isn’t even funny. I can’t stop watching it.I can’t even comprehend anymore…what we are in for, but I know I want more of the part of his gut that this comes from. I am developing an insatiable appetite for what we have yet to hear. The appetizer was incredibly delicious, I want a full meal! How can a voice,THE voice, become such a necessary integral part of your well being?

    Silverfox,
    I also thought this POTC was his best yet, too! You can hear all the songs on Abrra’s mp3 so clearly without having to watch the video. The visual battles with the audio and there’s just too much to take in at once. The audio alone = awesome.

    I enjoyed David’s duet of “Sounds of Silence” with Landon Pigg. Landon sang the beautiful melody while David sang the harmony. It’s easy enough to sing the melody of any song but it takes a seasoned professional singer to be able to pull off singing harmony on a song that was obviously unrehearsed. More kudos to David!

    Just got home, started watching vids. That POTC is heartbreakingly beautiful, his absolute best ever! Great Crush! Love the Sounds of Silence, the song and the duet! They sounded great together, but who doesn’t he sound great with. And his tone in that harmony, OMG! I can’t get it out of my head…except for Gotta Get Through This, gah!!!…are you kidding me! I knew he was taking it up a notch, but I was not prepared for THIS! Good night Mary! Can’t quit. and when I try to go to sleep it will be on replay in my head. And that ending, genius!

    Suzy Q, I love that vibe! You have got to get to Myrtle Beach. I hope he sings it there. He will blow them away!

    Dja, thanks for those lyrics! I really can’t get enough of that performance. “I gotta take my mind off yoooou, give me just a second and I’ll be alright..”
