Hong Kong ~ Acoustic David Archuleta

Posted by djafan on Wednesday, November 2, 2011

These two tweets say it all.

@misscaragrogan @david never heard of this bloke until today. Ridiculously talented. What a voice.

CraigLeesonCraig Leeson   If my voice dies I want it to come back as david archuleta. Just want to flick his ears the young pup.

I couldn’t sleep and went to twitter and surprise surprise.  There was a link to watch David perform on livestream along with many up waiting for David to perform.  Was fun.  Wait sucked the air out of me.

JR has great quality but doesn’t have them all up yet.  Westlife has them up.  I’ll update with JR’s as she uploads them.

Song List from Bebe (who was also up lol)

Gotta Get Through This
Everybody Wants To Rule The World
The Other Side of Down
Stand By Me

    Just BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! I really like “Wait” His voice is just Beautiful…

  2. Oh my! Yes David does have PR people and the best kind in case anyone is wondering anymore!

    See how he can touch the people all around the world? His choices of songs, well David you have the messages right there in the palm of your hands. Sometimes we think that he should be on some show like DWTS and then we see and listen to something like this in the cold early morning and everything else seems so small.

    His songs are like bolts of lightening in the right places at the right time., ..

    Night owls and ninjas, you have done it…

    You have learned ninja skilz oh so well! Thank you!!

    “Just want to flick his ears the young pup.”

    Me too!

    David Archuleta and his Band of Merry Men! LOVE it 🙂
    Off to work. Upload them to Unplugged tonight 🙂 and make mp3’s.


  4. Friends, fans, family (as Steven says it)…go back to the article just before this because there is a lot of news there leading up to today’s article and interesting comments if you missed them last night…


  5. Abrra said

    Watched them all. Oh my heck, finding it hard to breathe! Sitting while performing seems to force out his soulful groove. As though the energy is focused up and out through his beautiful voice. I am a fan of acoustic sets!

    Abrra I blame my phone for all errors

  6. Abrra…sometime today, perhaps it would be nice to bring over comment #59…there is so much going on with this guy!


  7. stenocruiser said

    Thank you so much for posting these performances — David’s voice is beyond amazing. Oh my, the yearning in “Wait” — heart-wrenching, and I think that’s my favourite rendition of “Crazy”. What the heck, every song was perfect. David is perfect! (the ‘merry men’ were darn good too)

  8. Heidijoy said

    Wow! What a pleasant surprise to wake up and find our Ninja’s have a whole concert available for us.
    What a beautiful heartfelt Acoustic concert for such a fine occasion. I’m so glad they selected David and his musicians to perform for the CASBAA Convention and Debut of TV 365.
    The dedication for Japan was special. GGTT was such a great choice.
    I’ve been Waiting for Wait and love that debut performance. Every song was special in it’s own way and the messages seem so meaningful each time David sings after his little Intro’s.
    Proud of David!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Looking forward to the Video, the Ronald McDonald benefit, the Ice Skating Show, Singapore and the Christmas Tour. We keep getting more surprises each day.

  9. goodkarmaseeker said

    What a way to start the morning!!!! His VOICE and all the nuances are beyond amazing and it just keeps getting better all the time. I have to say a very heartfelt thanks to all the administrators here at the Voice for continuing to provide us all with connections to David’s music. I know it feeds and fuels my soul. Thank you, thank you, thank you

  10. MT said

    Thanks so much for bringing us all the vids from his performance!! His voice sounded great! I like ALL the performances, but was actually a little surprised at how much I like this acoustic version of TOSOD.

    I must say, it was interesting to see him sitting for almost the whole performance. It did look like he was having a hard time holding still on TOSOD. LOL Chair dancing David FTW. 😀

    And I love WAIT! I can’t wait to see the video.

  11. angelofdja said

    You are all sooooo good to us! Bebe, Djafan, JR, a really big THANKS for your late night ninja skills! While I was lazily sleeping, with visions of howling David rolling through my brain, you were bringing us these fantastic videos! David acoustic is simply gorgeous 😉 The “Merry men” definitely handled their business too!

  12. angelofdja said

    Abrra, I eagerly await your mp3’s! “Wait” was amazing. I swear he sings and you can “hear” the sound right through every part of his body. Whoever said his VOICE is that like an instrument was spot-on! Gosh, I am so hyper this a.m.! I hope I’m making sense…

  13. Abrra said

    I am spazzing with Bebe on texting lol. I can’t wait to get home later and get the mp3′ s made!! There are 2 more videos of Crush and SBM on YT. I can’t get them here from my phone.

    Betsy can you find them and post?

    Abrra I blame all errors on my phone

  14. dakgal said

    Can I help.


  15. skydancer1x said

    WOW! Bebe Dja! JR! Thank you SO MUCH! I fell asleep right after work last night exhausted,and never got up. Missed all the action in the evening hours here. what a joy to wake up to this!

    I got goosebumps watching these videos. I have to tell you the man brought tears to my eyes. He is so gut wrenching good I can’t take it. Cannot WAIT for those mp3’s abs.Fabulous David. ohhh my heart. I love him.Gahhhhhhhhh!
    Angelofdja, its hard to make sense after watching these videos, the man is out of this world amazing!he is leaving us senseless, I feel ya!

  18. betsy said

    Dak, thanks. 🙂
    I was sick for a few days and finally slept my fever and body aches away last night. I think I slept for 8 hours straight. Otherwise I know I would’ve been up all night watching.
    So this is what happens when David rests his voice after a long flight. Pretty much perfection….

  19. dakgal said

    Betsy– Glad you feel better–I think the nasty flu is already making it’s rounds.

    “So this is what happens when David rests his voice after a long flight. Pretty much perfection…”—-HEAR!!HEAR!!—Finally, someone with some brains figured out that he is only human.

    Thank you to the night owls for such a treat this morning–The first three hours of my day have been toast—I’m toast–we’re all toast–I’ve never heard him in better voice ( you can hear the voice) it just soars in these acoustic settings–I take that back Mo Tab was spectacular– my wish is that everyone in the world could hear these!!

    Diving back in for round three………..does someone smell toast burning?

  20. betsy said

    Okay, I can see I wasn’t qualified to comment before since I hadn’t seen Crazy yet. Now I have.

  21. Abrra said

    Thanks for bringing the videos over.

    Hope you are feeling better


  22. Dayzee said

    So grateful to all the people who bring these beautiful performances to us. Amazing to me that we are blessed with so many renditions from anywhere David travels.
    His voice was just perfect here. Don’t know why I am always surprised at how pristine he sounds, even after all these years.

  23. angelofdja said

    Dakgal#14, Can you help? Darn tootin’! Thank-you. @>&*%#$<!!! That is all.

  24. djafan said

    I’ve added Crush and Stand By Me to the post up top 🙂

    I can’t believe I’m up lol I’m sure I’ll pay for it later. David’s voice is in my head spinning and circling all around. When he said he was going to sing Wait I couldn’t believe my ears. Bebe must have spotted me on twitter and texted me. I am never up that late. Good thing I was. David is incredible.

    I love his banter.

    After reading all the talk of the fetus on twitter and DWTS (not good by the way) I decided to take a look. Seriously I don’t get it, he really can’t sing! And on top of that attitude like I know I’m good. This reminds me of the story of the emperor’s clothes, no one tells him he’s naked, no one is telling him he can’t sing!

  25. angelofdja said

    Dja, it seems the very young JB may be a dad? Jeesh, just watch and see how much publicity this story gets…Shameful.

  26. djafan said

    The Man tweets!

    @DavidArchie David Archuleta
    Fun night checking out all the shops in Mong Kok. Time to get some sleep before shooting the music video tomorrow!

    After listening to Wait it just has intensified my anticipation of the music video!

  27. dakgal said

    We even get a little Archugrowl at 1:55 in Stand By Me

    Growl (Whenever) you need a friend.

    OK— so I’ve analyzed every word—sue me!! 😉

  28. djafan said

    haha Dak.

    I’ve added a 28min video of all but GGTT up top, last video credit Tamyayan.

  29. embe86 said

    Now I know my band’s music totally pales in comparison to these David videos just posted here, but I still wanted to post it here, in case someone wants to listen to our newest song.

    And to all interested, my daughter’s name is Neela Jasmin Juulia. She’s now 3 months old, and she smiles a lot and demands constant attention and communication. She’s quite hyper already – I’m a bit scared for the future to be honest 😛

  30. bebereader said

    What a delightful show last night. It amazed me that so many people were up and on Twitter, waiting, in case there as a livestream of the show. Sure enough a link appeared and what a thrill it was to watch in real time. I loved the backup singing by the band. David was oozing with confidence.

    “Wait” was a lot of fun, sung live!
    Hope it’s now part of the pop portion of the MKOC setlist.

    FYI, it is 2:37 AM in Hong Kong now.

    Please sign Hooked’s ecard:

    Here is the link for the group sympathy card for Hooked, who just lost her husband unexpectedly. She is SF’s sister and also a fan of David who sometimes posts but always lurks here. I’ve met her twice and she is such a warm, funny, beautiful lady. Hope you all will take the time to let her know you care.

  31. djafan said

    A little blurry but love the way the audience responded to the impromptu M&G.

  32. Gayle122890 said

    What does this mean?: “DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found” That is all I see where the videos should be here at The Voice. I’ve been able to find them on YT, though.

  33. djafan said

    Hey Gayle.

    DNS error. It sounds like your computer is having trouble accessing the youtube server through the site. Usually refreshing or restarting clears it up.

  34. Abrra said

    Clear your history and cache on your browser then close it and open it again. Have you been voting on polls a zillion times? That can “fill” up your cache and cause errors.

    I am home now. Going to my laboratory to make the mp3’s MUUAHHHHHHHHWWWW!!

    From David’s OS

    Make a Difference

    David Archuleta will “Make a Difference” for children battling cancer, as he joins fellow FOX’s American Idol alumni David Cook and Constantine Maroulis for a star-studded concert at Ronald McDonald House® New York on Tuesday, November 8th.

    Now in its third year, “Make a Difference” evening at Ronald McDonald House® New York, raises funds in support of children with cancer and their families.

    The evening will also honor retail veteran Tom Murry, president and CEO of Calvin Klein.

    Ronald McDonald House® New York is a “home away from home” that offers children with cancer and their families shelter and support while undergoing active treatment. It is the largest Ronald McDonald House with 84 rooms, and more than 25,000 children have stayed at the facility since it opened its doors on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

    Make a difference, too! Please, visit for more information.

    Nice to see that David will spend some time with Cook 🙂 November is a busy month, eh David?

    I found this D squared fan video. It’s got some nice clips and photos.

  54. dakgal said

    What a view—and that’s all—I could no more walk up to that window and look down –than I could fly to the moon–gives me the heebie-geebies just thinking about it!! 😯 Best to stay at least 10 feet away.

    Hanging out indeed–David is actually hanging out in that chair–how many want to bet he did a few spins in it?

  55. Angelica said


    I would take that bet. You know he did. 😉

    What an excellent adventure he is having! His voice was in great form at the Casbaa performance. Thanks to DJ and Bebe for losing sleep in order to have these videos waiting for us when we woke up. And thank you Abrra for rushing to the lab to upload it all on mp3. You guys are the best. ♥

    omg! coming home to all these goodies tonite is so wonderful. I hate working for a living, takes away too much David time. especially this time of the year. I want to quit working and follow David around for every musical performance he does forever. I have not been able to concentrate all day long thinking of these videos.hahaha! I am so tired I am just stupid right now.

    Dja,haha! you got it if I was ever gonna fling myself onto the stage in a heap,and tell him I am his respondsiblity now, it would have been at this performance.(you can curl up in your fetal position in front of his left leg, I’ll take the right.)

    He’s got my head ALL messed.up today.Mr. I’m just gonna sit here and sing a few little diddies for you all and watch your mouths hang open and your eyes pop out for a bit Archuleta.

    Abrra & Dja,
    Thanks so much! Lots of goodies for us today!!

    I’ve been watching these performances and I can’t wait for the Wait Music Video. And I hope he performs WAIT on the tour! I want to hear this with the full band and with him standing at the mic the way he did with Dont Let Go. Loved that!

    Hope we get some tweets, pics, something, anything from the shoot. I wonder if he’ll do a vlog afterwards?

    Hmmm … guess I’m a greedy fan. haha

    Loving the outfit David wears in the Video! Handsome young man. He is Growing up right before our eyes. ………….and of course everyone enjoys working with him.
    Glad he is getting to tour around.
    Love the way they organized this with him getting rest before the concert and being in top voice. I feel his SOUL in Wait. Always enjoy EWTRTW-David’s message to those that try to change him! GGTT was a great tribute to the Japenese people. Never tire of Crazy, Stand By Me and his debut song Crush. I think he got his message across in TOSOD but think it was hard to sit.
    Thanks for keeping us updated gals.

    Kitty has never left her post on the top right sidebar since he left.

    I will post SF’s prayer and keep him in mine as I know you all will also.


    Please take care of David. Watch over him and protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with people who will love and support him unconditionally as we do and always will.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he’s weary and stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt and give him joy when he feels sad.
    Keep him always in your protective arms during this time on his journey to Hong Kong and back home again.
    Keep David and and his voice healthy & strong as he continues to fulfill his Destiny.
    May he continue to encounter goodwill and happiness wherever his life’s journey takes him.
    And please Lord, give us the wisdom to do right by David always.
    Help us in the way we support him so that it is always in his best interests.
    Though we may be unworthy, we humbly pray.

    David, best wishes for an uneventful & easy flight. Thank you for all you do and for who you are.
    Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always!
    Please stay safe & take care!

    Oh— Angelica

    Maybe you missed my question #58–so I’ll ask again—have you received any e-mails from me? I have sent two in the last few days. Not to the Voice –to your e-mail.

    Any body got a clue if David has left yet. Is he traveling alone? Did the band leave ahead of him? When is he expected to land? HUH ? HUH ? HUH ? — Got to get in my worry mode– pace my breathing– know when to re-dye my hair–kitty and the prayer sure help tho!!

  92. Heidijoy said

    #91 Dakgal The band left ahead of David.Steve tweeted that he is home in LA. He had said previously they wouldn’t be in the video shoot or staying for that. David’s last tweet said the video shoot was a wrap. Not sure when he’s leaving or when he is expected to land. Not sure if they view the video and do retakes or not but it is now 3:52 a.m. there. May be leaving soon.

  93. Angelica said


    You have mail. I hope. Have replied 3 times now. Let me know if you don’t get it again.

  94. dakgal said

    Thank You Heidijoy—-See this is what happens when you don’t tweet or have any idea on how to follow twitter–how do you see what everybody is saying?—unless you follow them. Some will say “everybody is talking about it on twitter” – –it’s a big mystery to me!!

    How do you know when someone you follow tweets? Unless you ck every second. I have no magical iphone.

    I’m in the dark–I tell ya–in the dark (ages?)—so I rely one the hep ones to keep me informed–love it when they share a tweet. I feel that they’re letting me in on something.

  95. Tawna21 said

    Oh My Gosh!! I can’t wait for WAIT…praying it won’t be a long wait!! 🙂 David is looking verrrry hawt in that outfit!

    So, to ease the pain….I’ve ordered me some autographed GCT cd’s (it’s better than chocolate, imho) ….should be here in a couple of days!

    I wonder when he’ll arrive back in the US? Thanks for SF’s prayer, Angelica.


  96. Heidijoy said

    Ha! Dakgal. I’m not the one to teach you. I recently sent my first tweet!! I would just confuse you. The gals here are good at posting the important tweets. Ask and somebody will answer. Ha! Ha!

  97. Abrra said


    Ask one of your techy family members to set up Tweetdeck on your computer. You can set up “Search” windows and see anyone’s time line in real time. It’s like a browser for twitter. You have to sign up for twitter to use Tweetdeck. You log in to it with your twitter info.You don’t have to “follow” those who you add a search window. For example you can add a search DavidArchie column and see his tweets and all the ones that mention his twitter name.

  98. Tawna21 said

    great Abs! How do I set up the search columns? Your friends and mentions col. have your name on them, but mine don’t? I’m confused (don’t say it!) ;/

  99. Tawna21 said

    got the search figured out, but not the friends and mentions w/name

  100. Abrra said

    When you follow other people, they become your friend and that column will appear, I think. Send me your phone number and I will call you Friday and help you out? Busy tonight, but free the rest of the weekend.

    Here is the help page. You might find answers to your questions.


  101. Want to re-watch the whole epic acoustic set?



  102. I am listening to Adele at the moment who is on the radio. Oh, a duet would be so great..

    There are so many new videos to watch here tonight…..

    I clicked on to the “Group Card” that was last posted above by Bebe for our friend Theresa The condolences are heart warming and so wonderful to see that they are from at least four sites…The funeral for her husband was held this morning.

    Thank you for posting David’s travel prayer Angelica…

    Oh the poor kitty, she is so loyal and has such a great personality it seems…

    RUH-ROH! are we ever in trouble 😯 <<<<
    SBL came out pretty fast, hope this one will too…eeeeeeek!.
    Dja, that huge pic! Lord,,give me strength

    I am still not a twitterer though I have been called a twit. The only thing that tweets in my house is my bird clock, every hour, but I really love reading Davids tweets, here♥

    heading to video land now………..♫♪

    107. Betsy, I followed your instructions! “‘go here now” PICTURES that’s all you have to ever say to ‘moi’
    thanks for the find!
    David,are you coming home soon? “don’t make me come over there and get you!”. on second thought……

  111. betsy said

    Dja, I don’t think they are big enough. 🙂
    (you know I’m kidding, right?)
    Brooding and glowing at the same time in that top one.

    Sky, I didn’t find them, just ran across a link on Twitter.
    Handsome and fit. 🙂

    Hong Kong Acoustic David, unbelievable.

    With every performance he continues his evolution of this insanely ridiculous one of a kind talent. I do believe these are now my favorite versions of every song he sang. The band, stellar! Loved it! Wait, killer. EWTRTW, can’t even talk about it because there really are no words.

    Really, really…really liked the stool. Focus on the songs, his incredible stylizing, and of course, the voice.
    Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.

    Oh yeah… and it looks to be a very nice video. 😉

  116. emmegirl said

    Wait, what, huh.

  117. emmegirl said

    Brooding & glowing.
    And fit.

    Three of my favorite things. 🙂

  118. skydancer1x said

    Betsy,handsome and fit indeed! I think he has been doing pushups.♥.

  119. annie318 said

    I feel a little foolish asking this question. Where can I buy the signed copy of GCT? looked on David’s site & Deseret Books but couldn’t find it. Thank you.

  120. Gayle122890 said

    Something edible in that bag? He keeps putting his hand in it. 🙂

    I haven’t visited the DA site for quite a while. On his bio I saw a pic I had not seen before. (since we are sharing new pics… well, new to me.) I thought it was a very. nice. pic.

    And everyone: thanks so much for the site and all you do! I have been gone for a while and way busy… but I always find time to check in and check out (well… part of enjoying life is knowing the best ways to check out!!). Angelica… your posts are amazing. Kudos to skydancer for becoming a staff writer. And just thanks to all, again. I really appreciate all of you and all who post and keep up with all the news.

    You add life and joy and fun to my days.

    (Yeah, and thanks, DA for making all this possible. You run with a bunch of fine people. ^_^)

    Bebe, that was like opening a treasure chest! can you even imagine David doing a little private concert in your office?! Now that would be a good day at work 🙂 So I wonder how this all tied in with the making of his video…. or was this coincidental these 2 events? video production,and CASBAA? Its early and I am confused.haha

    123. Dja those pec…PICS! ahh his hair, all shiny clean and curly on top. and that dimple, and those eyelashes….and that smile
    he looks happy and relaxed.

    Reports are that David is leaving Hong Kong.

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Kitty has never left her post on the top right sidebar since he left.

    I will post SF’s prayer and keep him in mine as I know you all will also.


    Please take care of David. Watch over him and protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with people who will love and support him unconditionally as we do and always will.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he’s weary and stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt and give him joy when he feels sad.
    Keep him always in your protective arms during this time on his journey to Hong Kong and back home again.
    Keep David and and his voice healthy & strong as he continues to fulfill his Destiny.
    May he continue to encounter goodwill and happiness wherever his life’s journey takes him.
    And please Lord, give us the wisdom to do right by David always.
    Help us in the way we support him so that it is always in his best interests.
    Though we may be unworthy, we humbly pray.

    David, best wishes for an uneventful & easy flight. Thank you for all you do and for who you are.
    Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always!
    Please stay safe & take care

    thank you Abrra!
    how polite is he…when asking them to keep the noise level down, before singing Crush?♥ Being diplomatically assertive, love that. (I mean, come on people) Do you know how lucky you are? hush.

    all these beautiful pictures/videos from his events and the last picof him leaving. sleep all the way home sweet David♥ he came, he saw, he conquered♥ can’t wait for WAIT video.

  131. djafan said

    Thanks for the prayer Abrra. And that picture? ♥

    Sky.. David and hushing lol

    Hong Kong another huge success and now the waiting for “Wait” begins.

    David getting ready to leave tweets and a fan obviously has contracted ODD and is now entering the inevitable missing David stage.

    I love dim sum, so glad he had the opportunity to try it. I would have loved to have seen him trying all that food. I’m not to fond of the red beans myself lol.

    Just said goodbye to @DavidArchie at the airport, almost miss him now! Safe home, hope to see u again soon!!!

  132. dakgal said

    Hush cats, don’t you know people are trying to sing!

    Thanks for the prayer abs- and the picture ( sigh) -gads we have to wait until tomorrow-tomorrow– to breathe.

    Love that shirt on him–its not red 😉

  133. djafan said

    Found this over at MJ’s New entry for David in the Christian Album category. It’s hanging strong in the Classical but dropping in the Holiday. If you haven’t purchased your Christmas gifts get to it lol J/k. GCT should get a big bump with the PBS airings and the MOTab promo.

    David Archuleta:
    Glad Christmas Tidings, Mormon Tabernacle Choir/Orchestra At Temple Square Feat. David Archuleta With Michael York: Christian Album 49 (NEW); Holiday 34 (29); Classical Cross-Over Album 7 (7)

  134. Freo said

    I have loved following this week’s events! This trip was very professionally planned out and run, and that makes him look even better, too. I have fingers crossed that this groundwork will continue into next year and they have him back again to promote “Wait,” maybe another single, or a tour.

  135. Abrra said

    I agree with what you said. Everything about this trip was a good balance of music, promotion, and career progress.

    We are witnessing the foundation building that David spoke of months ago. He is on track for success!


  136. angelofdja said

    Abrra, Thanks so much for the mp3’s! I am heading to northern Michigan for a week or so, and the only connection to the internet I will have access to is a dial-up! Makes it real hard to watch a video! I’m bummed I will miss the release of Wait, but that will be another reason to say “There’s no place like home, once I get back!
    Thanks for leaving me with these pictures to float around in my brain as I listen to his lovely voice. 😉

    Oh my goodness! DHL just now delivered my autographed GCT CD — I ordered it from Deseret online only yesterday, the 3rd! I did pay for priority shipping but wow, how fast is that when it even had to cross the border? Also, I’m amazed how David even manages to dot the ‘i’ and cross the ‘t’ after seeing his speed-signing in that video! Mr. Perfection he is.

  138. Abrra said

    Have a safe trip! I always have my phone hooked up to the car speakers when I ride around. David is a great companion 🙂

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    I posted the link to the entire Candy Jar on twitter and the Asian fans reached in big time!
    Here it is, in case you want to add some concerts.

    That is good news! I bet yours is the CD that David held up in the signing video 😉


  139. djafan said

    Promo has begun!!!

    I want one!!!

    Steno you are one of the lucky ones! I tried ordering online and they’re gone! WOW!

    OMGosh all those GCT CD’s are SOLD OUT online at Deseret Books! They transferred me to their downtown store and I purchased it from them.

    Oh Wow, Gone already? I’m so glad I ordered mine early yesterday. I was going to get more for presents today but guess I’ll just have to buy them without the autograph. 😦

    Maybe they’ll have him sign some more. 🙂

    Loving all the pics, vids and comments from Hong Kong. Wishing David a safe trip home and looking forward to seeing him in AZ at the Pandora Skating event on Nov. 12th!
