David Archuleta ~ Little Things Matter Most

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, August 3, 2011

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
~Maya Angelou~

There was no mistake made when David was named. The name David means “beloved.” It’s the little things David does that make him so endearing to us. He points at a lucky someone in the audience when he sings “I’m just a little too not over you” and we all squeal. Then he waves at her because it’s not polite to point. He makes a concerted effort to acknowledge us, to let us know that we’re important to him. The little things he does do not go unnoticed.

When he’s at a mall appearance, he looks up and waves to those at the top level, and at his concerts, he always asks, “How’re you guys doing in the back?” In Ho Chi Minh City, he allowed fans onstage at the end of the show to give him flowers. Worried about pushing in the mosh, he often gestures with his hand to move back. Who does this? These are some of the little things David does. He genuinely cares about us.

He talks to fans during soundcheck and smiles as he listens to them sing his songs to him; he walks through a chaotic airport with a smile on his face, while hundreds are screaming, anxiously waiting to catch a glimpse of him. He tells us that he is no better than us, that if we have a dream we should go for it. He makes us want to emulate him, to be more like him.

When on tour, he stays up late until he opens every one of our gifts and often, when given a return addressed envelope, sends back a hand-written thank you note. He high-fives a line of fans who have waited in the heat to see him, even though he is pressed for time. When asked to take a picture, he says ‘Why not?’ while his handlers urge him that it’s time to go. He makes us feel important. In Hanoi he gestured with his hand to let the guard know it was okay, that he didn’t have to remove the fan who came onstage to wipe his brow.  A gentle leader, who inspires gentle acts of kindness in others.

And the list goes on…at home, the elderly woman whose leaves he raked, the stealth performances he gives at nursing homes, the countless hospitals he visits. On the road, the elderly fans he gets up from his seat at busy autograph signings to give a hug to, the humble thanks for gifts, the embracing of traditional garb, and all the impromptu serenades of Happy Birthday.  Always, the vlogs, the twitter parties, the penetrating eye contact and the way he lets us hold his hand or give him a hug when we meet him. The unfailing empathy and compassion he shows to one and all.  Is this guy for realz?

Big things are important but more often it’s the little things that have the greatest impact.

“It is not the size of our actions but the amount of love and care that is put into them that matters.”  
~Mother Teresa~

It’s these little things David repeatedly does that reveal his character and how much he cares about his fans.  Little wonder the feeling is so mutual.
