David Archuleta Rawks Jakarta, Rolls into Manila

Posted by djafan on Saturday, July 16, 2011

I gotta tell ya I’m a little too not over the concert in Jakarta and now we have Manila to get through. I can hardly get through “Gotta Get Through This” (the ending holla is totally unfair.)

One thing is sure:  we are in for IT, with a capital I and that stands for

He is crazy good and getting better. Check out the videos on this thread and have mercy, cause there is more to come. Much, much more. Oh yeah. We got Trouble right here in ArchuCity. And it starts with T and that rhymes with D and that stands for David. David Archuleta is evolving again and there’s no turning back. Just sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride. Welcome to your life.

Today a book signing in a mall where folks have been lined up for hours. Tomorrow, another concert at Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Manila. Capacity: 40,000.

Oh yeah, we got trouble my friends. He is the Music Man.

    O my!!! It is finally here and 19 songs!!!!!!!!!! How are we going to survive??? But I am ready….ustream bookmarked, twitter feed on other screen to follow along and alarm set for 8:00 am here in Utah:)))) I hope I can get some sleep so I will be alert and wide eyed for this epc event:)))) I so enjoyed staying up and watching the ustream of his arrival in Indonesia-what we don’t do for our man!!!! It was awesome:) He so deserves this.

    So thankful my grandsons baseball game isn’t until noon or I might have had to miss all the excitement in the morning in Archuland!!! All I have to do now is keep my hub busy so I am not disturbed during the concert, but I will somehow!

    See ya all later this morning:-)

    O and by the way, lovin the new songs, especially WAIT and LOVE DON’T HATE!!! Have played those gems over and over and over and over and over…….

    awwwWwwwwwww!! I Love seeing this stuff! oh and…ilovehim. 🙂
    Love the post Angelica, (how many times will I say “love” here?) and the pics, and all the International Davidlove~~
    “I came, I saw, I conquered, haha.” is perfect…LOL.
    Love that handshake photo and that woman with the book too. awesome.

    Up early Sat, and thought it’d be a good time to catch up a little here, and get ready for later~whoohoo.

    Was recently trying to answer the bf’s question to me “what IS it” about David that has made the “fanaticism”…”Elvis and Beatles”-like.
    I told him, first, that’s a topic that gets discussed constantly, as we all try to put our collective fingers on it, and somehow will always fall a little can’t always pinpoint that kind of “magic”…nor should you be able to.

    …and there are many many elements to what has charmed and captured many about David..
    But as I look at these shots today…. I think in particular to the beginning, and his “message” in singing Imagine….his ensuing embracing of other cultures, charities, foods of all cultures etc etc…when people adopted the “One Love, One World, One David”…they got it.
    Speaks to a lot of hearts, this little Pied Piper of positivity..”ha ha.” (it’s early…I may sound silly at this hour…)

    I’m still learning myself as I watch and follow in wonderment …what IT is……..but, for sure, to me…he has it.

    Tks Voice peeps, for all the news from Asia~~ok…back to reading….


  4. amb4da said

    oops…”One World, One Love, One David”…like I said…it’s still early…and…I had “Love” on the brain, so I put that first.


  5. Abrra said

    The link for the UStream of the concert is here:

    Steven Robinson tweeted that they go on at 10pm local time in Jakarta.

    Check for Jakarta here and it will show the time there. Example its now 7:21pm there but 8:21am edt where I live.

    While we wait, let’s see that video again 😉



  6. MunkFOD said

    ok…..spazzinggggg! But I’m ready! yay! Thanks for the great post! 😀 Hang on for a great ride!


  7. amb4da said

    Ascphil…just finished and enjoyed reading your 5-part previous posts… thanks for sharing. And I agree with others….keep taking that daughter “photog” of yours with you….those are some of the best shots I’ve seen…she has a knack for capturing him and just getting feel good, attractive shots! Didn’t read all the comments, not sure, but assume you are going to see his show?…if so…have fun!!

    whooohooo…………..get ready……………………

    there are 10-hour time difference with Jakarta, Buenos Aires is 11 am in Jakarta is 9 pm. I’m ready.
    I have my glass of coke, I’m addicted, cookies, handkerchiefs if I cry, ah get up recently, I still I have not bathed, but David does not know. shhhhhhhhhh

    I got gifts. The book is going to Mexico, to Victor, has no money to buy it, and the CD is going to Colombia, my friend does not have money and there, in Colombia, is not got the first cd of david. I send her a treasure. (Her words).
    They are very happy, thank you Ray, we’ve made happy, two beautiful people in the archuworld. And I keep the photos as a national treasure, are for me.
    I hope you agree with this decision I ever made.
    Thanks to life, and to God for having known David.

    Abrra, thanks for the pictures! You and your com-padres are just the best when it comes to keeping us up to date and doing it in such a fun way. I love The Voice!

    Didn’t sleep too well last night. Just so excited for the happenings this morning…*yawn*…Oh who am I kidding, *squeeeeing all over the place*….My mom just doesn’t understand my excitement, but who cares, not me. 🙂

    Angelica, I hope you don’t mind, I followed your checklist and I’m ready for some Archuleta magic. 😉

    Ascphi, loved every word and emotion of your article. You made me feel every moment. Wishing you and your family a wonderful time at the concert you will be attending.

    Supposedly, we have 10 minutes to touchdown, Dakgal, I’m getting tingly all over!

    He is slaying them. He is on fiyah! Gaaah. Going back in to look for survivors.


  40. bluesky said

    I could be drowning. But it feels so natural. Maybe that is why you smile, DA in such a friendly, conspiratorial way – as you offer me a musical life-buoy. But I don’t think it is me with whom you conspire. You know other forces of nature. You musically friendly thing, you.

    I think you tame them as well.


  41. bluesky said

    Samantha: scpancake. Thank you so very much. Thank you, thank you. Hope you had a friend or two to help with the surely tiresome task of holding up the camera for so long.


  42. Tawna21 said

    AWESOME!!!! Thank you scpancake!!

    moving on to Saturday housework~~ 😦



  43. sweetonDA said

    That was some concert…*dead*

    Want video now!


  44. Angelica said

    That was so incredible. Never heard better audio on a cellcast. Thank you so so much Samantha! The crowd was amazing and knew every word to every song and sang along! Can’t wait for videos now. GGTT was something special and EAM sounded divine. sigh…

    While we await videos. I made a couple of screencaps from the interview above.


    Is he getting better looking? He wouldn’t do that to us, would he? Photobucket


  45. emmegirl said

    I’m exhausted, wonder how he feels.

    scpancake, you did an amazing job and thank you so much for making it possible for us to be a part of it.

    bluesky, love your words. David, you’re amazing

    EAM, loved it. And LDH, all I thought it would be, loooove it!

    Wondering if Wait and Notice Me will pop up at one of the later concerts. 🙂



  46. amb4da said

    Well…play me like a fiddle again, Mr. Archuleta!
    (…and all the way from Jakarta on a cellcast!)…I’m powerless when the Voice takes hold of me….and I surrender!
    “I ain’t askin’ for an explanation…all I know is that you take me awayyyyy!”

    Loved the ENERGY over there…I flashed for a second on “little” David talking to Ryan after Shop Around about the audience’s reaction…
    “I LOVE IT, MAN!”…he had to be feelin’ it tonight.

    Tks for the fun guys…Thank YOU scpancake!!

    Gotta get to other stuff now~but you gotta love the techno world we live in today…got to go to a DA concert 1/2 way ’round the world, first this Saturday, in my living-room!

    Have a great day, all~~

    GREAT JOB, DAVID!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

    Love Don’t Hate as my favorite was confirmed again in this performance. His voice sounded so rich and strong. Oh my!

    @scpankake: Dont thank me! The strreaming was all @Salamahafifi

    So, thank you Salamahafifi and also scpancake. Great job! Going back to watch it again.

    The fans were showing the love and I think it’s only going to get bigger at each up coming concert.

    Betsy, lol low quality will do. 🙂

    I LOLd so hard at this interview (the one for Dahsyat)! It seems the girl really liked David! I mean, she yelled at him, flirt and kept interrupting him all the time! Anyways, I think it’s worth watching so I’ll leave here the link of the post I did about the interview (where I also put the vid)… Enjoy!

    “He left his guts on the stage”…I’m with you Emmegirl! What a performance–I wonder if he’s absolutely exhausted or charged with adrenalin after a show like that. All I know is that I need a new set of adjectives after that performance! Amazing and awesome just don’t do it anymore.

    Art and Joyluck,

    Welcome gif Pictures, Images and Photos TO THE VOICE!


    “Well…play me like a fiddle again, Mr. Archuleta!”


    “He left his guts on that stage.”

    Well said. His voice was so gorgeous and what emotional power he transmitted to the audience here and there in that Jakarta performance. Can’t wait to see and hear the other vids coming esp. GGTT (I have to verify to myself that the ending was real.)

    He looked amazing too, with that shirt blowing in the breeze. He actually found a shirt that totally matches the color of his lips. See #54 and the 6th pic down in #78 for proof. 🙂

    Have to go out for a while on a few errands and hoping to see more vids when I return. Hoping to see a lot of you guys in Unplugged tonight too, for Jakarta vids and to talk about “what just happened.” He brought never before seen or heard swagga and holla and I need to debrief or decompress or defib or something. I know the cure starts with a D. haha.


  85. Just got home from being away for a few days and just in time…

    #71…I got a little chill from someone when at around 48 sec. the wind blew his shirt and there was MJ for just a moment. Sorry I have to be spiritual but maybe MJ was there watching.

    So North American Music Industry are you watching closely????? If not then KEEP watching…

That dang devil snickered…"ok, but you know it's 6pm now, you are going to plug in, blink and it will be 9pm and you'll be sitting there in a DA haze, like only minutes have passed." …aw, "hush devil"…you shouldn't be here anyway!!

    …o.m.g. The pink shirt blowing in the breeze, the passion in his voice on EAM, my new favorite song for today! …the little waves ….I always love the waves and smiles while singing. And I have always said….I love a guy in a pink shirt!….only guys with a strong sense of self wear pink shirts…and this one never looked better! 🙂

    I'm with Bebe…..a concert like this one HERE. I'm with whoever said….DVD!

    ok, nuf babbling….I gotta go see the rest…I'm done.

    wow. just wow. I had, like I usually have to… hold onto my heart…feels like it could burst outta my chest.

    it’s silly i know…and dramatic. ha. but true.

    wow…that performance of EAM…Emmegirl re: the guts on stage…YES. Those were my first words uttered after Shop Around out loud to myself…”that kid just sang his GUTS out!!” and 4 yrs. later, I still feel the same!

    wow. i dunno how he does it.


  88. In addition to #85…It looks like Vicki and others on FOD had the same thoughts so it is very real!

    “He brought never before seen or heard swagga and holla and I need to debrief or decompress or defib or something. I know the cure starts with a D. haha.”

    O.M.G. hahahha That’s perfect!!!

    I also agree with everything everyone said here. Fan and the pink shirt blowing in the breeze, the swagga, and the VOICE. EAM is consuming all my time. And 3:20-3:30 on EAM. What was that dip thing he did at 3:27? That’s new… and smooth!

    I felt it too. I remember David saying just 2 days ago that he spoke to MJ on the phone once.

    I got a chill when I saw the shirt blow back from the draft. I didn’t realize they had a wind machine on stage, so it was quite a moment. I was sure that MJ was watching and gave David a nod of recognition for his talent and showmanship last night.

    David sang Nature Boy as a young teen. It rivals the original.

    SB, Abrra, and those at FOD, at the risk of sounding over dramatic I see it and feel it more with every view.

    One of the many special characteristics I see in David, as someone else mentioned, is his openness to trying new things whether music, food, languages or customs. I say “bravo” David for your fearlessness and goodwill in all the countries you have visited.

    His heart and soul are just breathtaking and expansive that he can see humanity in it”s goodness. It makes me feel so happy and proud.

    Ok…back up to #5…I love that interview…so cute between them…(like the Jakarta version of the Shelly-Christmas one from 2 yrs ago :))..but besides all that…may I just say…Mr. Man of the World does an impressive job with every language I ever hear him speak. And if I’m guessing I’d say, out of respect for each country, he’d practice until he could perfectly speak.

    Still trying to digest this concert while waiting for more videos. I know that David is trying to discover his own sound but I never expected this! It’s early morning in Jakarta and I heard that David and his crew left Indonesia shortly after the show and are headed to Manila. This show was dynamite. The tour is going to be nothing short of epic. I hope the Manila show is filmed by a professional videographer so it could be sold to us. They’d make a mint off of us, don’t they realize it????


  97. Abrra said

    Thanks! He makes it easy 🙂

    I think that video is hilarious! Not sure I have ever seen David so uncomfortable or an interviewer so oblivious to his uncomfortableness LOL I lost it when she thrust her chest out and asked him to “signature” her tee shirt! BWAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!



  98. amb4da said

    Abrra…well I saw that too…esp. with the shirt…haha…at least she let him sign the bottom!!
    Haha…but I thought he held his own there…even if any of it felt funny…he DID do the signature DA “throw it back to the interviewer”…”let’s hear YOU sing it!”

    Ok, like for real, guys…been stuck in a EAM vortex!! Gonna take a little break…………….


  99. bebereader said


    Yes, the the Showbiz Shelly interview, when David turned the tables on Shelly and threw back at her the same lame question, “So how was YOUR first kiss?’ In this interview, since the journalist was also a singer, he said “I want to hear YOU sing!” after she asked him to sing something. He may have looked a little uncomfortable during the interview but he was in charge.


  100. gladys said

    I want to do a question, At what point, David sings, TOSOD?, because, after stomping the roses, sings ALTNOY. and then followed the new songs.

    New interview!

    Archuleta alert! He’s all grown up now


    David Archuleta talks about his new journey as an independent singer-songwriter as he gears up for his upcoming concert in Kuala Lumpur.

    David Archuleta has the buoyant wholesomeness of a Disney Channel pin-up. Blessed with boyish good looks and soothing, vanilla vocals, the childlike singer with the cute charisma has come a long way since he first stole our hearts on the seventh season of American Idol.

    After a brief episode with a paralysed vocal chord that nearly destroyed his singing dream at age 13, young Archuleta emerged the runner-up on the hit reality series just five years later. Now at 21, after a highly successful self-titled debut album, which sold nearly a million copies worldwide, his season CD Christmas From The Heart (2009) and last year’s The Other Side Of Down, Archuleta is ready to go his own way.

    Last February, it was announced that the engaging performer from Utah in the United States has been dropped by Jive Records, his label since 2008. Archuleta also left his management, Wright Entertainment Group in the same month to pursue what he called, “a new direction.”
    Free as a bird: Now at 21, David Archuleta is ready to go his own way with his music career.

    It’s a certain change of environment, but if the wide-eyed singer has anything to say about it, it’s a positive one.

    “A lot of people were surprised to hear that I’m not with Jive Records (owned by Sony Music Entertainment) anymore. But it wasn’t like that. I’ve actually been offered a different deal to still stay signed with Sony but I just felt like I haven’t been happy for the past one or two years and I haven’t been going the direction I’ve been wanting to go,” said Archuleta in a recent phone interview from Nashville, Tennessee.

    “Ever since Idol, it was like go-go-go-go-go; do this, do that! There were so many people telling me what I should be doing and what’s going to make me successful but I didn’t actually have the time to think about what I really wanted to do,” he added.

    Just like his affable persona, the singer was chirpy and candid throughout this interview.

    “I was under a lot of pressure and I didn’t know what to do. I was just so confused…. Now, I finally feel like I’m breathing oxygen again and I’m free to be myself again.”

    While his heart is still set on singing, Archuleta said he is not looking to be signed under a new label at the moment.

    “I’ve learned a lot from the industry since Idol but right now, I need space to grow as a musician and to try to find my own sound. I want to spend time just writing and putting songs together, and then go out to record labels and say: I’m ready to make an album now. This is the music that I want to do – do you believe in me?”

    For now, he is working towards writing his own music with songwriters from the musical city of Nashville.

    “I love the vibe here,” he said with typical candour. “It felt like magic the first time I came here and that’s why I’ve been coming back over and over again.”

    While country music remains synonymous with the city, Archuleta said the local music scene has a healthy variety of pop, punk and rock.

    “There are so many types of different musicians out here. Ke$ha, Kings of Leon and Paramore are all from here.”

    But despite his inherent optimism, the singer isn’t afraid to admit that his transition from manufactured pop star to independent songwriter has not been all smooth sailing.

    “I was always so afraid to do this before, making decisions for myself because there was always someone else making decisions for me,” he shared.

    Archuleta, who began performing publicly at 10 when he participated in the Utah Talent Competition (and won the children’s division), also revealed it is hard for him to finish a song on his own.

    “I have a lot of ideas that I’m really excited about but I’m still trying to figure out my sound and what I really want to say in my songs. Hopefully, some of the writers I’m meeting will be able to get the songs I want to write out of me. I want to be able to connect with my fans and reach as many people as I can.”

    “I love Adele so much and people love her because she puts her heart into her songs and you can hear how much feeling she puts into it. I wanna be able to do that.”

    Pop fans can breathe easy, though, for Archuleta will not abandon his pop roots just yet.

    “I still love pop music. That’s what I’ve always been doing but I want to work harder on my vocals. I want to put more focus on my voice instead of all the beats and sounds that technology can add to a track.”

    “People didn’t vote for me on Idol because of who I was working with or the kind of tracks I was singing. They voted for me because they liked my voice.”

    The best part about making music on his own is that he doesn’t have to meet anybody’s expectations anymore, he said.

    “This is all coming from me, from my heart.”

    Faith also takes precedence for the singer.

    “No one guides me better than God. I could be going so many different ways and it’s scary because I could mess things up and I’m not sure exactly what’s going to happen, but with God, I feel good about what’s going on and the decisions I’m making.”

    His family background is also a strong one.

    “My family has been consistently there for me. My parents, especially, they’ve been extremely supportive because they just care and it means a lot that there are people who care about you and who are there for you.”

    Archuleta also revealed there’ll be another album on the way but added with a tinge of prudence, “just not this year.”

    “Right now, I’m thinking of releasing just another song for fans who’ve been so patient and so good to me.”

    Besides writing songs, he is also working on shows for the Christmas holiday season.

    “There could even be a Christmas release, even if it’s just a little one,” he hinted.

    But his Malaysian fans won’t have to wait that long, for the congenial singer will be back to perform his first full concert here on July 26 at Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur.

    Archuleta, who was last here in April 2009 for a mini showcase in Sunway Lagoon in Selangor said he is very excited about his upcoming concert.

    “I was sweating a lot the last time I was in Malaysia but it felt so good. It was such a fun experience to meet my fans and it’s great to be able to come back and do a full show. There will also be a full band this time around.”

    Fans of Archuleta can expect a performance filled with breezy, light-hearted numbers from all his albums at the concert.

    Organised by Sony Music Entertainment, Malaysia, David Archuleta’s concert will be held at Stadium Negara, Kuala Lumpur on July 26 (8pm). Tickets are priced at RM300 (for VIP), RM230 and RM190 for numbered seats, and RM150 and RM90 for free seating. All prices exclude RM3 ticket handling fees.

  102. I am so pleased to read that David had contact with MJ at one time. They are both magical singers on stage and off.

    Pic.#91, an awesoome picture that will be seen in all of the David places for a long time to come.

    Videos please…



  103. FG said

    Oh my…..I just can’t even process this concert yet. The Ustream BLEW my mind. His voice was FLAWLESS. And now the pics and vids of the emotion and swagga and holla (thanks Angelica!) His talent is limitless. The new songs are so beastly epic that they need a freakin cage. I can’t believe I worried if he’d hit those high notes in E&M. I was such a fool. ALWAYS trust The Archuleta. I have the house to myself tomorrow for several hours. I’m not leaving this chair. God is good. The Indonesian fans are amazing. This whole fanbase is love.


  104. I have something for you!!

    Here is the MP3 of this video for download:


  105. Abrra said


    He didn’t sing it because he changed his set list to make room for 2 of the new bonus songs on the CD. It’s his decision. He is the BOSS 🙂



  106. Hmmm…and the wind is still blowing his shirt!!



  107. Can’t forget to credit the recorder for the video…booradleigh…

    Enjoy the awesome growls…

    “The new songs are so beastly epic that they need a freakin cage”

    We knew they’d come to life once David sang them live. But knowing it and seeing it happen are two different things. I love how he told the Asian fans that the songs are for them. He’s so endearing; such a gentleman and a gem.

    About the MJ reference…by the time the Asian tour is over, okay I’ll say it…I predict some new dance moves, inspired by MJ. David is loosening up onstage this tour. What a wise choice to go to Asia where he has a whole nation of fans, gain more confidence in his stage skills and then bring it all back home.

    SB#104 Hi and thank you for EWTRTW! 🙂

    See you in chat soon.


  109. All words come to life when David sings them and that is one amazing characteristic about him that is so rare.



  110. MT said

    SB, thanks for that video of EWTRTW.

    Bebe, I think you’re right about the dance moves. In that video of EWTRTW, see 2:10-2:20. When he guitarist starts playing, David runs around behind him and does a small bit of dancing. It’s in there and it’s just itching to come out. haha LIttle by little, he’s showing us some new moves. There’s got to be a lot more coming. 🙂


  111. Abrra said



  112. bebereader said


    I saw the running across the stage and the new moves and I’m loving it all!
    There’s a new fluidity to his movement now that we didn’t see before.
    It’s just wonderful to see him blossom onstage!

    Going to chat.
    I’m late, I’m late!

    There are just no words to describe how happy I am right now after coming here and digesting all of this for over an hour now!!!! I agree with SandyBeaches when she says that “all words come to life when David sings them.” All I can think about is how much I wish I could go to a concert like this and soak up all things David!! But I can be happy and patient waiting for a Christmas concert.

    Well, guess I’ll go watch all the videos over again:))) (Hoping for more, of course) I just have to tell all the Asia fans how much I love them for loving David so much. I think I am just so happy seeing and feeling David’s happiness (and how he owns the stage the way he does) right now. He is definitely on fire!!

    “People didn’t vote for me on Idol because of who I was working with or the kind of tracks I was singing. They voted for me because they liked my voice.”
    That is right, DA. Thanks for listening. You may not be able to hear your own voice, but as we trust you – trust us.

    “This is all coming from me, from my heart.”
    Yes, and we know that. Thanks for sharing your heart with us. (And thanks for believing in ours.)

    “No one guides me better than God. I could be going so many different ways and it’s scary because I could mess things up and I’m not sure exactly what’s going to happen, but with God, I feel good about what’s going on and the decisions I’m making.”
    There is nothing more important than this. When you feel grounded in your faith, DA you lift us with you to those heights you see and aspire to yourself. Thank you, again.

    That is all.


  116. Angelica said


    Happy describes us all right now. Sure would love to see you at a Christmas concert. Utah is so beautiful that time of year. 😉 Found this on AFS. Entertainment section of today’s Philippine Star. 🙂

    Just got home to an incredible bounty of more videos. Have only gotten thru EWTRTW, it tells me all I need to know. Swagga, holla, I don’t know what it is, but it is THERE! He is feelin’ it, breathin’ it, smellin’ it, livin’ it, givin’ it.

    The moves – anyone catch 1:19-1:25… whaaaat?…the tude at 3:21?
    And the running…he moved across that stage like a thoroughbred. I will get no sleep tonight.


  123. Heidijoy said

    Nice to see you out and about Pattirae. We’re all soaking up the Asia experience and David is on fire.

    VLM Glad you are able to enjoy David’s music from afar with the rest of us. My heart aches for you but know David’s music will help.

    Thank you all for keeping us up to date. Loving it!!


  124. poof said

    I am so impressed, not only with the One and Only David, but all of you, that you can find the words to share. Amb4da talked about David embracing differences and new experiences. Such a great word for David, embrace. He embraces each of us with his talent and goodness, and changes us all for the better. It is just amazing. Sorry, I know I am going on and saying nothing, at least nothing that hasn’t been said so many times. By the way, Everything and More,,,, oh my gosh!
    Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to share with us today. Now that’s a concert!

  126. I’ve been gone since early a.m. Came home to all these videos of sheer amazing awesomeness of the Archuleta! There is a definite difference in his movements. Mature. Confident. GROWN! I’m not so sure I was ready. I thought I was. Then he goes and sports a pink shirt. With a pure white v-neck t-shirt. Nice pants. And THAT VOICE! It has brought me that tingly feeling numerous times tonight.
    I’m goin’ back-in for more…Everything and More…

    Good Morning!
    Well…early Sunday morning…in that “zone” this weekend for sure…more videos! But YIKES…that mall!!…with love like that, I hope we don’t lose the boy overseas for a while!!

    LOVE that interview: “People didn’t vote for me on Idol because of who I was working with or the kind of tracks I was singing. They voted for me because they liked my voice.” (LOVE your Voice. 🙂 j’s sayin..) Yes!…of course he “gets it.”

    The best part about making music on his own is that he doesn’t have to meet anybody’s expectations anymore, he said.
    “This is all coming from me, from my heart.” (Yes! Another thing fans always trust and love best!)

    and this: Now, I finally feel like I’m breathing oxygen again and I’m free to be myself again.”
    (Makes me feel happy just hearing that in him.)

    This is the David we’ve all seen since he first opened his mouth on Idol and swept us away with music like we never heard it before…and I’m with who ever said above (sorry can’t find it right now)…I THOUGHT I was so ready for this….but I’m gonna have to strengthen my heart and tune up my emotional processing skills…serious overload is about to explode, peeps. Lord help us all.

    ok back to videos…before the new influx of news comes!

    So glad I got to see the ending of the show here, after Crush, his exit (cellcast cut out before that for me)
    Gave me chills on so many levels. Pure David…donning the blankgon (which I didn’t even know what one was ’til now…kid’s schoolin’ me), taking as many gifts as he possibly can, likely appreciating how important it is to the people who took the care to bring them…and the love, respect and adoration back, he SO deserves. Chills still…the fireworks (I love fireworks)…for whatever reasons I just felt it all as he ran around that stage. Great vibe. and David purely in his rightful element.
    Maybe THAT’S the ‘magic’ he talked about feeling over there. And of course…he’s the magic. 😉

    ok taking a break…gotta get to other stuff…but…..maybe I’ll keep the computer up for a bit….case new stuff comes in. 🙂

    These pics are amazing, the number of people there. And David, again, is beaming. It has to feel incredible to be so appreciated for what you do. I love seeing all the guys in the crowd.

    SB, Blackbird 1:38-:50 ♥
    I like this performance of it even more than MB

    FG, thanks for the Nich188 videos. 🙂
    (And I love being able to see all the hands constantly reaching for him too)

    Angelica. “Oh yeah, we got trouble my friends. He is the Music Man.”♥♥

    Never in my wildest dreams would I ever have imagined that “social security” would be redefined as meaning David Archuleta, ‘The Voice’, and fan videos.


  149. #145…his entourage with flashing lights as he leaves. I bet that we could do that too don’t you think? Isn’t that how you treat a superstar?

    In all this fablulousness, I have to remark on one thing before I run out for the day. The second to last pic in # 138. The look on his face. Surprised delight? Yes. Flattered and thrilled? Yes. Sense of entitlement? Absolutely none, not even close. There is NO sign that the thinks he’s hot stuff and simply expects it. None at all. ♥ Makes my heart swell that he is still so sweet and genuinely humble. ♥ You just can’t fake that. ♥


  153. Sorry that was #138 the airport video…

    And I especially looove RoCkStAr’s who wear cereal t-shirts!
    Does this look like a man on a mission or what! 😯

    Bet JR is a very busy gal right now.

    Taking a break until later when more awesomeness shows up on twitter!

    Refresh your browser, I added things into a few of my posts.



  156. emmegirl said

    MT, love your comment.

    abrra, that last pic, and he graciously takes the time, amongst all the hullabaloo!


  157. I let out a big squeeeee when I saw he was wearing a Kellogg’s cereal tee! I’m from the home of Tony The Tiger! We call this place Cereal City, Michigan!
    Abrra, you are much appreciated for bringing us these beauties so quickly!
    I’m a bit behind…I am ready…thermos of coffee, bottle of water, and my ear buds…


  158. amb4da said

    Popped back in before going out for a while and
    MT #152 {{{ }}}…Perfectly expressed. You spoke the words of many who feel and see that from him. Feels entitled to none of it…deserves all of it.

    and I loved the Kellogg-t too!!..haha…and I don’t even know why…just so …David…foodie…ha..whatever.

    ~again…tks for all your hard work, Voice mods, to bring all this together for us~

    ps. …just decided to wear my U.S. time watch on my left wrist…and put my (ok I admit it) little David watch I bought once for fun on Ebay and wear only for “special occasions” (I know it’s for little teens!!…it’s subtle though!), on my right wrist, and keep it on Manila time. oh boy…I know I will be mortified I admitted that later! ~ have a good day all!

    Gosh … borrowing from Sky, a “mega” thank you to all the Indonesian, Filipino & international fans for sharing their video’s, photo’s, tweets with a special shout out to the awesome tandem of Scpancake and Salamahafif for U-streaming David’s concert! David has the most amazing and dedicated fans ever!

    I am still on a euphoric high. Just full of pride for David! What an unbelievable, powerful experience!!!! … That voice, that smile, that deadly charisma, that commanding performance, that emotional connection, that passion, that rock star aura … not to mention the unabashed love and adoration shown by so many supportive fans; I still can’t get over how they sang their hearts out for David! … just loving all this Davidmania and to experience it from across the international timeline has been unreal.

    SB; #109 … you said it best … no one breathes life into music like David does … it is truly what sets David apart from just being another famous singer with a beautiful voice!

    Abrra; … Thank you for posting all the amazing video’s, photo’s and for the mp3’s to come … don’t know how you’re able to squeeze all that you do in your busy day but we love you for it!

    It seems that there can never be enough when it comes to anything David related … am I beyond crazy or just addicted or is this the norm for an average David fan? Let me know or else I’m gonna need some heavy duty counseling … well at least it’s nothing that more David music can’t fix, haha! Looking forward to what’s coming ahead!


  163. Abrra said

    Blueberry Ice

    Your ODD is working as intended. No adjustment is required at this time. 🙂

    Finding pics and videos IS my busy day LOL We want the best for David and if it means keeping his fans happy, we do our best to deliver all we can about him and his career.

    David looks so unassuming eating his mangoes in pic #10 way up top. He looks so young there, and so sweet. The GGTT kilt me. He morphs into a macho, stomping, knee-bending, strutting, wailing beast with that new swagga and holla that Angelica pointed out so innocently. What even! In post #119’s GGTT from 2:23-2:38 that is some macho movin right there. WHAT HAPPENED??


  166. betsy said

    This tweet is all kinds of wonderful. I know everyone has probably seen it, but I just have to post. From @UrabaniteAsia (14 hours ago) Over to you Manila! Take care of him. Read his eyes to know if he’s tired, and then leave him be. Poor boy needs his sleep!
    There is so much ♥ in that.


  167. djafan said

    This from Nareejo!!!! Found on Snowangelz!

    …and the lovely and amazing Dr. @nareejo, who won the chance to interview David in Manila, tweeted these teasers:
    Here’s a short recap, lol, I made David laugh and ramble, I made Jeff smile so much looked like his cheeks would break. He was so impressed he started taking pics of me interiewing David. One high point was when Jeff came to me after the interview and said “That was a great interview! You so get David! You got so much more out of him than all these interviews!” ..did I die or what! Well, since I got my questions from all of you guys, then the truth is WE ALL GET DAVID! Yes we do! …

    Odyssey took the video. Wouldnt allow me to use mine. We will have to wait for the video to see if I looked as awestruck as I felt lol

    I told him he looked like MJ at the concert last night..!!!! … lol he laughed!!! so did Jeff! Jeff was having so much fun! haha

    he had fun!!! … he turned the tables on me and asked ME a question… and i answered … and he laughed! haha

    I wish they would just post the audio and not the but you guys have to see him. they it was the most energetic interview of all! just cover my half when you watch lol

    MJ and David had a common music teacher before

    he did sing a Script song in an interview before me..beautiful..but i cant remember what it was..watchout for video

    i was limited to 10 mins.. but they used 2 mins for intros andwhat not..dang … i think i submitted 18 questions, they chose only 5 that i could ask..but i think was able to ask more … and yes.. the questions I asked were from all of you guys!

    When the video comes out I will do a recap of behind the scene thing..and things deleted … I told (TOLD) him to have more singing vlogs! … and being the doctor that i am..when i hugged him in the end i said “take care of yourself David”


  168. Angelica said


    That’s some of the swagga I was referring to fo sho. For the holla that weakens my knees see

    same video #119 GGTT from 7:22-7:28 and from 7:45-7:49.

    What happens to him when he gets on stage is getting stronger. So is my ODD which is approaching maximum overload.

    That crowd at the mall was insane! What will the concert be like? Photobucket


  169. Abrra said

    Airport drama! Nice to know they are watching out for David’s privacy!

    Archuleta arrives in Manila for Araneta Coliseum concert ‏

    MANILA, July 17 (PNA) — American Idol Season 7 finalist and first runner-up David Archuleta arrived Sunday afternoon in Manila for a solo concert on Monday, July 18, at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

    Archuleta, who is in his third visit to the country, arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 at around 1:05 p.m. aboard Singapore Airlines flight 910.

    Archuleta’s fans, who patiently waited for several hours outside the NAIA terminal, shrieked after the American Idol finalist waved his hand towards them.

    ”Mabuhay! Nice to be back here in Manila,” Archuleta said before he boarded a waiting car.

    However, before Archuleta got out of the terminal, one of his bodyguards gave chase to an unidentified cameraman after the latter tried to record Archuleta’s passport at the immigration zone.

    It was later learned from Archuleta’s group that filming of the celebrity’s passport was not permissible.

    The cameraman was earlier briefed regarding the coverage that taking pictures or filming such personal information of the celebrity was strictly prohibited.

    When confronted, the cameraman denied and even volunteered to show what he had recorded in his camera to the chasing bodyguard. (PNA)

    Betsy 166, that tweet might be my favorite comment of this entire glorious thread.

    #174 photo: my heart just about burst with love and joy and pride when I saw this. Thank you Betsy!


  176. djafan said

    Betsy, that is a beautiful picture! I was looking at all the hands and realized that David’s fingers are intertwined with all of theirs, I wonder what he feels with the outpouring of so much love. I could pick his fingers out in that picture lol

    Meet & Greet part 1 and 2!

    Stage Entrance at the MegaMall wow

    The Man tweeets!!!


    Getting ready this morning here in the Philippines! So great to be back here!! Excited for the show tonight at the Araneta Coliseum


  178. Comment #150, picture #4…

    David looks to be twenty something with his strong, square jaw and slight dimple in his chin. He has the tired eyes of an accomplished young man with the most perfect smile in the whole world.

    SB #178, “David looks to be twenty something with his strong, square jaw and slight dimple in his chin. He has the tired eyes of an accomplished young man with the most perfect smile in the whole world.”

    beautifully said–I love that picture–there is so much joy in it ♥

    thanks to all for the pics, vids and comments here…I’m lovin’ that Asia is lovin’ David..

    Yes, SandyBeaches, I agree, N.American music needs to get the message—we have a music star, a songwriter, a published author, right here on our side of the world, let’s get it going and get him on the charts!! Show him the love and support that they do across the ocean!



  180. Heidijoy said

    That’s one of my favorite pictures too SB. I think Narejo took that one and also got to interview David later.

    Betsy Yes that picture is great. I wonder if the one just touching the shoe is the short girl who said she couldn’t reach his hand so she touched his leg. ha!


  181. skydancer1x said

    Thank you Abrra for the MGR….the intensity of his performance makes me want to jump out of my skin,it just turns my whole body into one big goosebump.
    How does “that” come out of him like that, like you all have said,it is so wild and primal like he cannot help himself its in there and has to come out of him!!! Never seen anything like it, ever.
    I am out of words for all of these feelings I/we are experiencing. I knew this week was going to be EPIC, but it is that, and so much more…Betsy, that picture says it all. the entertwined hands are beautiful.He knows♥.


  182. djafan said

    SB, Tawna, and Heidijoy this one is also my favorite for all the reasons SB gave. I made it bigger it lost a little of the sharpness.but that face says it all.

  183. emmegirl said

    SB 178, you described that pic perfectly.

    164, I love how he gives that much and does not diminish that moment for them. When he puts his hand down like that he lingers as long as he can.


  184. amb4da said

    Just stopped in quick before bed and just wanted to say…
    after so much watchin’ “DA MAN!” on this thread all wknd…totally missed and only JUST read Angelica’s hilarious assessment of it all at the header…love it…right here in Archucity. Trouble…of the best kind.

    and last…#174 pic…now that’s one to end the day with…what a glorious shot.

    nite…gotta rest up for whatever’s next!
