In the Melting Pot with David Archuleta ~ Pocoelsy’s Recap & Arizona

Posted by djafan on Wednesday, August 17, 2011

As some of you may know, I went to his concert in Kuala Lumpur, so I just want to share with you all how he and the whole thing made me feel….here we go…

We started out journey at about 9 am. Two and a half hour drive to my eldest daughter’s campus to pick her and her friends up. Oh my daughter, she won 4 tickets from flyfm the week before. Hoping to get meet and greet passes but it’s not meant to be 😦 I was listening to fly with my younger daughter then and heard her name…. the next thing I knew, I heard her screamm… screeching so loud for the whole nation to hear her love for David, I’m so proud of her haha all excited lol! We never won any competition on radio before haha. It was fun but we had our tickets already so she gave away those tickets to her friends, one of them couldn’t go cause the mother didn’t want her to miss any classes, but GOD moves in mysterious ways… all the classes were canceled that day !!! so they didn’t miss any…so my good reputation as a mom is still intact!! lol.

We went to pick up the tickets at flyfm. When the girls saw the tickets they screamed their high pitch again haha..help building “the mood” for concert ….Oh my poor hubby haha lol. We checked in at our hotel and gave an extra ticket to one of the staff there. She was so happy, I could tell from her smile “ear to ear” as she thanked us nonstop. Had lunch and freshened up, then we went to the stadium.

When we arrived at the stadium about 4pm, a lot of people were already there, some were like us… waiting to go in for soundcheck, some were so excited and just happy to be there and listening to the soundcheck from the outside yeah! When we arrived David and the band were doing their private soundcheck, had he not skipped some difficult notes to save his voice for the show one might think they were playing his cd. My “entourage” haha just go WOW ald&6%$0>::}

In we went at about 4:45 pm waiting for our Prince Charming to show up lol and he did, swiftly walked in .. didn’t run as usual, he looked a bit tired though. We greeted him with longgg and louddd screams and clapping our hands till it hurt lol.. many of us were stunned I believe. He smiled back at us with the sweetest smile ever, die haha. My first impression of seeing him for the first time is on the left side bar above, thank you admins for giving me that honor 🙂 and may I add now about his physical appearance… ok. He actually glows as you all know… not because he’s fair. The “glow” was from the inside cause when I saw him he’s a bit tan, not too much but tan he was, he had some nice pink color on his skin especially his scratchy cheek. 🙂 He’s a muscular young man, I tell you lol I thought I’d see a small and thin guy… nope he’s not, he looks as healthy as a 20 year old man can be. My daughter said “must feel very sturdy when one gets to hug him” and I agree.

Oh sorry this is sooo looong and I’m not even half way through my “story” yet, when it comes to David I can talk for hours haha.

I need to talk about his skin for a bit, I was so fascinated at how it looks so glowy, porcelain like and flawless especially on his forehead. When he flashed his pearly white mega watt smile his whole face was all lit up and we just couldn’t help ourselves but to smile back and feel sooo warm and good, it’s mutual  and so genuine.

Sitting there listening to him sing “Love Don’t Hate” and other songs live with minimum screams was pure bliss, his voice is just so tender yet powerful. It  filled up the whole venue, the way he sang the chorus was so sweet. While he strolled confidently and very relaxed on the stage like he was walking in the park, he said hello and thanked all of us who came out to see him, sang “Touch My Hand” hitting every notes with ease. He asked us if we had any song we wanted to hear. The answers were too many, haha. He ended up singing “Crazy” to us and before he started on the piano he said “Ok….oops I haven’t practiced this one…ok alright here we go ummm…” and I swear…he smiled his shy and mischievous smile for a second lol… then went on to belt out the most powerful, emotional, passionate right from the bottom of his heart with his soaring voice filled up the whole venue (again hee hee), that was the most incredible “Crazy” I’ve ever heard!!! I literally had the hair on my neck and arms standing up,  man… it was out of this world…

“Anymore songs you guy wants to hear?” Again the response was overwhelming, then someone said “Someone Like  You” (I think) he hesitated for a bit, knock a few notes on the keyboard and said “I could do acapella for you guys…” yayyyy…  🙂 but we got cut off by Sony CEO 😦  It’s time to move on to questions, stop yaying…and start NOOOO…OOO  ing. David in his  nicest way said “Oh sorry, umm yeah I guess I have to save my voice for tonight, hee (insert his sheepish adorable smile here). Ok David (and Adrain) we forgive you, and come to think of it I don’t mind really cause poor David must be very tired; the Malaysian (Asian) schedule was so punishing.

The questions I remember were the first one, “David, will you marry me?” haha. David just grinned his awkward grin and we laughed our awkward laugh lol. Adrain to the rescue noooo  noooo  new question please lol. That’s an adorable moment. The next question was Sanjana asking him to sing a birthday song to her cause it’s her birthday, so he did as you all know. The way he sang her name was soooo sweet and while he sang this it was as if he sang just for her you know!! like there’s only him and her…. he pointed his hand at her throughout the song, and said “Happy birthday.” At the end I think she cried… tears of joy…who wouldn’t, what a lucky girl!!! and so that’s about it, we said good-bye, “See you tonight guys! ” “See you Davidddd!” That’s all I can remember about sound check, good time.

The concert !!!  🙂

After sound check we had our dinner outside the stadium, ha, didn’t notice that we were so hungry during sound check… time flies when you’re having fun is so right, so we filled up “our tank” and went back to the stadium. It’s about 7 something pm. Sooo many people there, hanging around, some still buying tickets !!! We saw some people went in, so we did too.

Me and my family had to sit separately from my daughter’s friends since we had 4th row seats and their seats were somewhere in the middle. Bye have fun girl, see ya if we’re still breathing after the show haha. We found our seats, it was so close OMG and almost center OMG. We’re gonna be able to catch his shoe(s) or if we open our mouth too wide while ecstatically screaming our heads off the shoe might land in there haha…if he didn’t tie it properly and if he kicked hard enough while he “puts one foot front of the other” lol and then he can continue his show without his shoes hahaha. Ok I spotted many familiar faces from YouTube that AAM posted from the ticket launching day. In fact, we sat beside the cute twin girls from the vid who said they needed the meet n greet passes so badly (and they did get the passes) ha!they’re so lucky and as cute as can be.

While waiting for David… I looked around and.. my.. my.. I saw the mix of audience. All ages and all races like Chinese, Malay, Indian, Thai, Caucasian ect…it’s like an Archie melting pot of fans, the power of the Archuleta indeed that binds us together! A lot of GUYS too, young and old, I think they made up almost 35% of the population there lol ohhh… maybe they had to come.. accompany their kids!!! I saw lots of college-goers too, but surprisingly not too many teens or tweens as it should be, ohhh cause it’s a school day and they had to rely on their (strict) parents, so that must be the BIG reason  😦  too bad for them, it’s a shame…it’s a crime…. I think about 80% of the venue was filled up.. not bad at all considering it’s a working/school day!!!

Singing SBL ect.. and screaming at the slightest movement on stage while waiting was a fun way to kill the time and help build up “the mooood”.

Finally the light was dim, cheering/ screaming, opening act was on, they were pretty good and very entertaining and very short….only 1 song !!! oh well… we were here for David Archuleta remember lol..hee hee.

Waiting for another 5 long minutes it’s like forever so we chanted Daviddd! Daviddd! Daviddd! Finally the band was out, another cheering-screaming so louddd eeekkk then……. Kaboom…… The one and only Davidarchie zzooommmed out on stage bouncing, flashing his trademark million dollar smile…. man…the screams, squeeees, whistles this time were deafening loudd and longgg, my my where’d those hands come from suddenly? There were thousand of hands up in the air haha and he burst out “Wasting time just going mindless”….people were up on their feet with excitement…Whattt? I can’t see him! In a flash I (had to) stood up (never-mind the small boys behind me lol, sorry little ones, aunty had to see him, didn’t pay this much to watch people’s backside right!!!?)  So did my daughters and almost everyone else. My hubby couldn’t cause there was a group of children, I think about 20-30 of them sat right behind him. I assume they were sponsored by Sony and David, I dunno. We never got to sit down for the whole show!!!

David looked stunningly gorrrgusss, happy, hyper and handsome and sounded sooo good and confident and handsome (did I say that already? haha) There’s no trace of the shy, awkward, childlike guy we saw this afternoon during the sound check. This David was so full of energy, confidence, in command and friendly!!haha I wonder what Sony people fed him for dinner, lol must be something he ate!!!

Those guys whom I assumed were accompanying their kids….ah… man was I wrong!!! While I couldn’t take my eyes off David, I spied some “dads” up on their feet cheering, punching air, singing along and believe it or not, at some point jamming/jumping their behind off… rofl… it’s really fun to see hahaha! Even the security guard who’s in charge of the corner of the stage couldn’t help but watch David in action once in a while. He tried to pull the “guard’s face” without success, smile was readily on his lips !!! haha

David sang STR, TOSOD, and ALTNOY continuously as you all know. His voice was (is) out of this world, pitch perfect, sweet and powerful. And I noticed that his voice and tone changed according to the song he sang. Sometime it’s fun and cheeky like in “Elevator.” Other times like in “Everything and More” he used his sweetest, most passionate voice ever…that was the best sound…sweetest song live… I’ve ever heard! Oh and have to add “Love Don’t Hate” too. Talking about “Elevator”..for me it was the most fun song of the set; David was sooo animated, his facial-body expressions were soo cute and adorable (I shouldn’t say those words, haha, about a 20 year old man but that’s the truth; couldn’t express it any other way, it’s all his fault!!) The way he put his feet together when he sang “and in my dream last night” and hophop hop hophoppp with the tune was sooo cute it hurt lol. And the part where he stood there gesturing with his hand “elevator goes up…” all of a sudden at “till the feet are back on the ground” he skipped backward, shook his whole body all at the same time and sprinted forward head first with the tune! Didn’t know that a human being could do that until that night  haha….man… who needs the dance guru, this was so raw so natural, just can’t blink not even 1 second otherwise will miss his cool adorable moves !!!! The band intro was as fun as the song itself, everyone was outstanding, and the salsa moves from the boss man caught us by surprise! It was smackxeyyyhh haha he could moved those urrr…  hips and swirl like nobody’s business as you prolly saw from the vid, I heard a lot of “thuds” in the venue there !!!

Finally, the last song… what David… you just performed 13 songs noooo no wayyy haha! That’s how we felt, every song he performed had something extra (hope you know what I mean) something special on its own, Zero Gravity was no exception, soo electrifying, dancey and everybody just singing and jumping like there’s no tomorrow lol! Then “Terima kasih Malaysia, bye, thank you sooo much you guys!” and off they went… gone behind the curtain 😦 We’re not gonna let him go so easily haha, so we chanted “David! David! We want more! We want more!” We were pretty good at it now, lol. It worked, he’s back, “Ok I’m back …. I’m gonna do a couple more songs for you guys.” Geezzz David, you don’t understand, you can do 50 more songs and we won’t be angry with you or complain not one tiny bit…. so we got the emo-driven powerful “Heaven” and Crazy” and another intensely electrifying “Crush” haha. It’s so intense that he had to hop sideways at one point to keep his balance… sometimes watching him I had to hold my breath cause he could have stumbled or fallen flat on his face at any given moment, this young man is truly the definition of the word “dangerous” haha. The wildest “Crush” evahh! The band was crazeeh and David came out for the last time ran around bowing, blowing kiss(es)!!!! said “thank you” to us profusely and went on to do this “air drum” thing, haha that was hottt and fooling around with Steven’s drum for a bit before he left the stage. The band still banging their instruments for another good 2 minutes haha crazy crazy, they really enjoyed themselves there.  🙂

David’s stage presence and command of the stage were as brilliant as his singing. It’s so captivating, and the way I felt was that I was not watching the concert, not just as an audience but I was a big part of it, this was how David could reach out to us, make us feel like we’re long time friends who are having fun together, and I think everyone there felt the same. Now I understand when people said that it’s as if he sang directly to each of us individually !!! The lady in front of me and about the same age as me was dancing jumping singing along throughout the whole concert. So did the boys behind me.. no need to mention about the twins beside us…they had the time of their lives! lol

You all probably watched all the YouTube vids by now.  I have to say that to witness David through my own eyes and ears was the most memorable and fun concert I’ve had in ages or ever.  David must be naturally gifted or he was well rehearsed with the band or both cause he’s so in-tune with the drum beats and such, how he pumped his fist, whipped his head until you can see his sweat dripping, how he rolled his shoulders, and  doing his little footwork each time it was so precise and effortless!!! To me the most rewarding thing was to see his joy, how he’s in tune with the music doing what he loves to do the most. The sparkling in his eyes and the genuine, gentle smile that never left his face said it all and that made me happy.  🙂

Sorry this is wayyy tooo looong, longer than I expected, but yeah that’s how he made me feel. LOVED every minute of it.. I’m in good company.

    I have patiently waited for your recap. It is a pleasure to read the reaction of a fan’s first “up close David encounter”. You hit all the marks. 🙂 He is quite a vision to behold in person. You got caught in the Archuglow.

    “I need to talk about his skin for a bit, I was so fascinated at how it looks so glowy, porcelain like and flawless especially on his forehead. When he flashed his pearly white mega watt smile his whole face was all lit up and we just couldn’t help ourselves but to smile back and feel sooo warm and good, it’s mutual and so genuine.”

    “David must be naturally gifted.” This is what everyone who sees him perform realizes. The moment he opens his mouth, you know something special is about to happen. It’s what we mean when we say he never disappoints.

    The pictures taken by your daughters are just perfect for this write up.Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with your fan friends around the world. 🙂

    On another note, I was looking on twitter this morning and found some sound check vids from Hanoi. They were interesting to me as they show the “off stage David” relaxed and just singing to no one in particular. The 2nd time I watched with the sound off, if only to focus on David’s moves. But do listen to STR at 2:17. He sings Wait Wait Wait!

    Stomping the Roses

    And 2 of Elevator He has no mic in the first. Just watch him move to the music like Pocoelsy said “its a gift” 🙂

    Poelsky, Loved your recap! I felt like I was right there with you. How thrilling to be there with your whole family!! I once had the opportunity to bring 10 family members ages 10-70 with me. I cherish that memory. Of course other times I went by myself and shared the experience with other fans and those are great memories too!
    Angelica, Love the way you presented the daughters photos.
    Abrra, Enjoyed those Soundcheck videos. Thanks for picking up on the Wait Wait! Yes he does have the music pouring out of his veins and he moves so naturally as he feels the music.
    Nice way to start the day!!

    Thank you for all your kind words :). I still thanking (is there such word ?) my lucky star that Sony and David decided to come to Malaysia !!! my family enjoyed the concert to the maxxx, my hubby was not really a fan but he likes David alright, after the concert he has all the good things to say about David and the Band, one thing I remember was that “WOW this guy can really sing eh !! he had such a powerful vocal” and my hubby said that sooo many times, and I don’t mind haha.

    Heidijoy,

    You’re welcome, Wow 10 family members must be fun and loud lol, I’d like to go to his concert with other fans too must be lots of fun hope he come back here one day.

    Pocoelsy,

    Your recap was a pleasure to read, so full of humor and warmth and details. I watched all the videos from your show and they were awesome! I so wish David would do the same show here for his US fans.

    I love the way you explained how David changed his movements for each song. The videos only show so much; you really can’t see it all. I would loved to have seen this:

    “The way he put his feet together when he sang “and in my dream last night” and hophop hop hophoppp with the tune was sooo cute it hurt lol. And the part where he stood there gesturing with his hand “elevator goes up…” all of a sudden at “till the feet are back on the ground” he skipped backward, shook his whole body all at the same time and sprinted forward head first with the tune! … who needs the dance guru, this was so raw so natural, just can’t blink not even 1 second otherwise will miss his cool adorable moves !!!!…”

    Thank you for taking the time to share your incredible night with us. Thank your daughters too for the amazing pics!

    Pocoelsy,
    Thank you for sharing your incredible concert experience with all of us. I loved every description, every detail that you gave us. Made me feel like I was right there with you. I know how hard it is to write up a summary of an ArchuConcert. Mine have been insanely long but I have discovered something over the last three years. There is no such thing as a too long or too detailed recap of a David Archuleta concert experience or even a simple Archu-signing. Each and every time fans encounter “The Man” there is something new and wonderful to share with the rest of the fandom.

    Thanks for your contributions to this amazing tour experience. We in the states have lived it vicariously through all of our fan friends on the other side of the world. It is so amazing to be able to do that.

    David’s concerts in Asia were so amazing. The photos and videos from this tour were brilliant and we are so grateful for them. And comments and recaps like yours add so much to it by giving us a sense of what it felt like to be there.

    Great recap, Pocoelsy! Happy that you and family were able to see and enjoy David live in concert. Your description was so vivid, like being there with you. Nothing is too long when it comes to David…loved every word.
    I have a small day to day book of inspirationals that I read each day and today’s goes like this:
    When you’re in the presence of an inspiring person, you know that something is happening energetically. Even though you can’t see, touch, smell or hear it, you know that you’re experiencing a shift that makes you feel incedibly good.
    That, to me is the way David makes us feel with his gift of inspiration, spirituality, great voice and good looks. Quite a gift from God. Like Simon said, “that’s not a bad place to be, is it”.

    Having said that, many of us here in the USA will also be in his presence very soon in AZ!

    BTW, dear Admins, is there a link up to go to the AZ info for those who are still needing to know what they need to do to get the wrist band for David’s concert in AZ?

    Pocoelsy— It’s always such a treat to read re-caps and how other people feel about their first encounter with David–seeing him and hearing him live for the first time. It is easy to relive your own experience reading your words, you make everything become so alive–with your descriptions. LOVE IT!!!

    All that you wrote is so descriptive—this is my fav

    “who needs the dance guru, this was so raw so natural, just can’t blink not even 1 second otherwise will miss his cool adorable
    moves ”

    And that is the tah-ruth!!!

    Pocoelsy, what a wonderfully funny, heartwarming recap of your family’s concert experience!

    Loved it all, first word to last. And especially this “it’s like an Archie melting pot of fans, the power of the Archuleta indeed that binds us together!” And your last 2 long paragraphs so beautifully describe him and what he is about musically and personally.

    Then a perfect ending, “To me the most rewarding thing was to see his joy, how he’s in tune with the music doing what he loves to do the most. The sparkling in his eyes and the genuine, gentle smile that never left his face said it all and that made me happy.”

  23. Pocoelsy…You had a marvelous experience and it seems the same excitement and wonderment comes with him wherever he goes!

    “One month from tonight” we will be excited all over again. David will take to the stage and all of the new people who have heard so much about him lately, will become his newest fans. I remember how many men stood in amazement in SLC during the standing ovations at the MoTab Choir Christmas concerts. He has men fans in suits and ties and some in jeans and tshirts. Well then there is David Foster all the way through the lines to Brad Paisley who have sent compliments his way.

    Hello everyone,

    Thank you for all your kind words !! I’m soo happy that you all enjoyed my “story” . It’s a challenge to me to write the recap especially when all of you are very good writer yourself 🙂 It’s intimidating to say the least since English was not my strong subject in school lol.

    I have to thank the Admin and Angelica for even consider putting this up and help me correct my spelling and such and also put my daughter’s pictures up there too, the sepia version was Angelica’s work and they’re so niceee.

    Most of all “thank you David” who inspired me to get up and do this all the way through without giving up; like he said “if you want to do something “just go for it”, haha at the age of 50 I still learn a lot from this remarkable young man, I’ll keep doing it.

    Love you all,

    I want to thank you for participating in the process that keeps this fan site alive. It means so much that fans of David step up to share thoughts or an experience. Sharing the special time you spent gives us all a chance to sit beside you in the 4th row. Whenever I read that someone plans to attend a concert, I ask if they might do a recap for the site. You came through in a big way. Pushing through your doubts, you gave us all a well written article.

    Having fans contribute here is part of the vision we have for the site. It’s a fan site for and by fans. If anyone has something they feel strongly about. Start writing. Send it to thevoiceda@gmail.com and we will help you to get the article published.

    Pocoelsy,

    This recap is so intensely descriptive and for someone for whom English is not your first language, I am seriously impressed. You conveyed the pure adrenalin and excitement of being at a David concert with such unreserved immediacy. I have not read such a vivid, visceral recap since Djafan’s “Pomonapause.” lol. Loved these descriptive passages…

    “…we chanted Daviddd! Daviddd! Daviddd! Finally the band was out, another cheering-screaming so louddd eeekkk then……. Kaboom…… The one and only Davidarchie zzooommmed out on stage bouncing, flashing his trademark million dollar smile….”

    “…he skipped backward, shook his whole body all at the same time and sprinted forward head first with the tune! Didn’t know that a human being could do that until that night haha….man… who needs the dance guru, this was so raw so natural, just can’t blink not even 1 second otherwise will miss his cool adorable moves !!!!”

    “David must be naturally gifted or he was well rehearsed with the band or both cause he’s so in-tune with the drum beats and such, how he pumped his fist, whipped his head until you can see his sweat dripping, how he rolled his shoulders, and doing his little footwork each time it was so precise and effortless!!!”

    “He ended up singing “Crazy” to us and before he started on the piano he said “Ok….oops I haven’t practiced this one…ok alright here we go ummm…” and I swear… he smiled his shy and mischievous smile for a second lol… then went on to belt out the most powerful, emotional, passionate right from the bottom of his heart with his soaring voice filled up the whole venue (again hee hee), that was the most incredible “Crazy” I’ve ever heard!!!”

    “…this young man is truly the definition of the word “dangerous” haha.”

    He disarms you with a smile, knowing full well he is about to slay you.

    Everyone, please keep Pattirae in your prayers as she has her final surgery tomorrow, (Thursday.) She has been through so much and is nearing the finish line at last!

    Emmegirl,

    You HAD to bring up Sayreville shoulder action, didn’t you. You know what’s coming, don’t ya?

    Pocoelsky, Loved your recap! Loved all the little details!…

    “It’s so captivating, and the way I felt was that I was not watching the concert, not just as an audience but I was a big part of it, this was how David could reach out to us, make us feel like we’re long time friends who are having fun together, and I think everyone there felt the same. Now I understand when people said that it’s as if he sang directly to each of us individually !!”

    Emmegirl 24, 25…wow, you weren’t kidding about the rock star moves! And I loved: “I was cleaning. Came into the office to vacuum….and I got sucked in.” Haha! Yep, been there, done that!

    About yesterday’s vlog…I had waited so patiently (yeah, right!) and was so excited about the possibility of hearing about upcoming tour dates, or news of new music, or possibly some singing…but no, David put it all into perspective with the majority of his vlog being about Marius. Isn’t it great to be a fan of such an awesome young man!

    Emmegirl,

    Thank you for sharing videos today. We were blessed with so many from this Asian tour I found it impossible to get through them all in real time. Receiving them in batches on youtube, weeks after the tour lets us savor the memories bit by bit.

    Do you think you can take one more “Heaven”? Dreamskyhigh had a great seat and gets extremely close at the very end. Don’t miss it. Because it’s so close, you can catch nuances that are easy to miss from a long camera view. Every bead of sweat, every sly smile…you can see it all here.

    At 1:59 David kills us with a HUM.
    The audience reacts strongly. He’s well aware of his power.

    At 3:52 he does one of those I don’t know what you call them but you’ll know what I mean when you hear it. The nerve!

    Then at 4:30, the loooong note, “We’re in Heaaaaaaaven.” Wait for the extreme closeup at the very end!

    Hi girls, I’m a little calmer and I’m not angry. I apologize for my last comment, but I felt insulted and defended myself. But that moment is gone, now I’m gladys mic or gladys jeans again.

    Pocoelsy, I thank you for your post. I feel like I’m sitting next to you, looking at David, thank you very much. I admire your post in English and I congratulate you. I realize the effort to write in a language that is not your own, but the girls in this blog are great and help us. I hope to visit your place someday, and to tell everyone about David’s concert in my country is my dream.

    Something funny happened to me (my life is not always serious) ..
    I printed a calendar with photos of David and stuck it on the wall to see how he has matured.

    I have my wallpaper at the forefront of David’s face, he is singing Heaven.

    In my personal folders and files, here in my office, is also David.

    To speak politely, David has invaded my life.

    And besides all this, on my iPod and the music of David is everywhere.

    Yesterday, the owner of the studio went up to my office and asked me for some folders. When she opened a folder, guess who was inside?
    Then she looked at my calendar and guess who was smiling? Then she looked at my CDs and she asked me, who was the singer?
    Finally, she listened to my ipod. Then she laughed and said:
    Gladys, what about this guy so young?
    I can not answer this question.
    I believe the answer found her, when she saw my computer wallpaper.

    #42 Djafan, Yes you are right David is an international Star from the look of the mix of the audience there some even flew in from other country I believe, talk about dedication !!!! And since you ask “how am I now” let me put it this way – last night I dreamt that after the concert FlyFm. play all sort of David’s songs, old and new on the radio for weeks it was so real to me, like I really heard the songs then I woke up I realize it’s just a dream cause I only listen to the radio when driving for my daughter and upon her request, if not.. I only listen to …you know who …heehee no exaggeration whatsoever and it’s funny that you asked and I dream what a coincident!!. As for my 13 yr old daughter, after the concert she stops listening to the radio she only listens to David now haha she crazies about “Notice me”. She proudly wears the David tour T-shirt to public places almost every time we go out and still gushing about how “cute and handsome David is” everyday lol , now that’s how I-we feel haha.. we’ve got it baddd.

    9/11 NBC Concert. I found this.

    Enrique Iglesias, Alan Jackson, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, and Al Green are among the performers confirmed to appear at the Concert For America, to be broadcast Sept. 11 by NBC as part of the network’s coverage of the one-year anniversary of terrorist attacks on Washington, D.C., and New York. Josh Groban, Renee Fleming, Placido Domingo, and the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by music director Leonard Slatkin will also appear.

    The event will be taped Sept. 9 at Washington, D.C.’s John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, with First Lady Laura Bush serving as honorary chairman. NBC’s broadcast will be hosted news anchor Tom Brokaw.

    “In addition to honoring the victims and heroes of Sept. 11, the special will also use words and music to reflect on the year that has followed since the terrorist attacks, and the spirit of unity that has emerged across the country,” the network said in a statement. “Featuring the voices of everyday people, as well as famous figures past and present, the special will remember lives lost, and celebrate the resiliency of the American spirit.”

    At present, no tickets are available to the general public, but updates will be posted on the Kennedy Center’s official Web site in the coming days.

    Susie, I have been reading ton about this (other articles too) and haven’t seen D listed either. However, I believe he has recorded something for it. I really do. 🙂
    He probably hasn’t told anybody yet. I can see it now.

  86. David can’t say what he is doing often until he gets the green light that everything is in order to do just that. Often choirs and soloists accompany scripts for documentaries or stories that are told.

    This little ninja guy that you talk about to me is a nearly 21 year old musician and much more accomplished and worldly than most guys his age.

    Wouldn’t it be neat if they showed David singing for those Fireman after 9/11 and then showed him now singing some Patriotic song with the Motab choir in the background. Kind of like they did for the Stadium of Fire show.
    There are programs that they’ll be showing Sept.5 on throught Sept 11. Like Betsy,SB and Djfan I’m thinking there is something in the wind. We can dream and dreams really do come true. Think positive. After all we have a clue that the makeup artist saw him backstage at a taping for an NBC special for 9/11.

    So happy about Patti:)) Her husband texted me from her phone this morning and told me she is doing great, sends her love and gets to go home today!!!! Can you believe that woman? She is amazing and so deserving to have this surgery go so well after the  horrible traumatic one last February!!!! She wants to go to Arizona so bad, and I think she just might make it:) We already have our plane tickets and I sent DJA money for 7 fan passes yesterday for Claudia abd her sister, Patti and her daughter and grandkids, and for me!!!! eeeeeeeek, less than a month away now!!!!

    Loved this recap pocoelsy:) sounds like u had a super fantabulous time. so happy for u!

    Anxiously awaiting my email saying my MoTab CD and DVD has been shipped, but have a feeling since I live in Utah I may be one of the last to get mine cause Deseret book is based in SLC Snd they r probably sending out those out of state or country first.

    Live you all and can’t wait to see u all in Arizona who r going

    Pocoelsy; Wow! I savored each vivid detailed description of your amazing David experience as it brought to mind my wonderful memories of what it’s like hearing and seeing the joy of David singing live. You are so right when you pointed out how David captivates, engages and reaches out to involve his entire audience … it’s like he taking extra care to make sure you know how much it means to him and you can feel how much he is giving back from his heart. Thank you for sharing such a wonderfully written post! Your daughter did a great job taking pictures especially for how much David moved on that stage.

    Pattirae; So glad to hear that your surgery went well and hoping for your complete recovery back to doing all the things that you love. I have been touched by your courage and positive attitude in all that you’ve been through.

    Thank you all for posting so many wonderful videos on this thread as I’m thoroughly enjoying them but there’s nothing like a vlog from David. Gosh, it certainly reinforces why we are his fans for life! Plus we got MoTab CD/DVD, Arizona, Okinawa and possibly more exciting events ahead! Yipeee! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I’m praying for a speedy recovery so I can see you in Arizona, along with Shawna and the rest of those from The Voice and other fan sites. It’s so great to meet everyone and put faces with screen names. One month and counting! So glad the band will be coming too. We are going to rock our little section at the concert!!!

    Didn’t get an email yet that my MoTab was shipped, but so glad they are coming earlier than posted. I need to see that smiling face and listen to all those wonderful songs he sang. Oh the memories…

    Hello to all of you lovely Voice-people 🙂 You always seem to be on top of everything, so can you tell me how I can order the MoTab dvd and the Asian Tour edition of TOSOD? Since I’m in Finland, I’m not quite sure what the best place to buy them would be. Any help is greatly appreciated – as I’m learning to adapt to my new life as a mum, I’ll need something to watch while feeding my daughter lol. And of course she’ll fall for David in the process 😉

    Hi Embe I think you can order Tosod Asian edition from CDwow I think many folks in the US. ordered there, but I don’t know about Finland!! I’m in Malaysia so it’s easy for me to buy from a cd store just let me know if you have difficulty buying one I could send to you, consider it’s a gift for your baby 🙂 I like it when you say ” she’ll fall for David in the process” !! she’ll be his fan for live literally :). As for MoTab dvd, I myself also don’t have a clue where to order look like Amazon have just the CD. I’ll wait for more news that will come up somewhere, I need that dvd too haha.

    Thank you posting all the vids love them all, need time to catch up though !!

    Last night David’s twitter account was “hacked”. Someone changed his password and tweeted some information that was not true. Fans knew very quickly that the tweets were not sent by David. They came from other sources , not by “text” as he had tweeted earlier from the concert he was at in Utah. They came from mobile web and iphone.

    The false tweets were deleted from his twitter page once David became aware that something was going on.

    David found out and tweeted this:
    @DavidArchie
    Someone changed my password and so I can only tweet from my phone right now. If it’s not from my phone sorry for whatever is said

    then this:
    @DavidArchie
    Phew figured that problem out and back into my account. Sorry everyone for the fake me. Weird having your space invaded sometimes lol.

    and this:
    @DavidArchie
    Ok so that last tweet was really me back in my account haha. If anymore tweets come tomorrow or from an iphone it’s not me.

    Then, overnight there were more “hacked” tweets. I know this because they are on my phone. He has deleted them from his page, again. I will not be specific about what was tweeted because I do not have proof that it was who they say they are. I am sure there was much drama on twitter over night. I checked tweetdeck and saw that Sunny Hilden had alerted him.

    She tweeted:
    @SunnyHilden
    Sometimes you just have to call your friend at 1 o’clock in the morning…….

    @SunnyHilden
    I’m on the phone with the nicest angel ever…ever…ever…

    @SunnyHilden
    After a long time on the phone helping my friend, a tear rolled down my cheek. An angel shouldn’t need a zillion digit password.

    Until he says things are under control, maybe we should not post any tweets to avoid drama. Let’s give him some time and space to sort this out.

    Was thinking about the upcoming Christmas tour this winter.Smart move to do that, on the heels of his PBS MOTAB appearance where he will still be fresh in PBSers minds who have maybe never seen him perform or never watched Idol and don’t know who he is.You know, those people living under a rock! great for ticket sales for tour.:))
