    Hello!!!!

    I just finished catching up on as much as I could about everything that went on the last two weeks while I was out of the loop. Thanks to SandyBeaches I was being kept up to date on the really important news, even though I was kind of β€œout of it” this last week.

    First, I would like to thank everyone for the very beautiful group sympathy card for my sister β€œHooked” for the loss of her husband of 25 years. The messages were truly heartfelt and I know, very special to my sister. She is a very special and caring lady and I love her so very much. I was able to be there for her during one of the hardest weeks of her life. She is still in the throes of grief and disbelief and yet is so strong, doing what needs to be done. She was deeply loved by her husband, is loved beyond measure by her 2 daughters & 2 grandsons, her siblings, nieces, nephews and so many friends I had the pleasure of meeting while there. My regret is that I hoped to be there for her for more than that first week, but sometimes things happen in the most unexpected ways. SHE was the one who had to be there for me this last week and she was, putting aside her grief to make sure I was taken care of. THAT is who my sister is and why I love her so very much.

    I’m home now. I had a scare. But that is a story for another time. I just wanted to come here tonight to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for thinking of and expressing your messages so beautifully to my sis. She will respond in her own words when the hurt in her heart is not so raw. Just know we both love you all!

    ps…what can I say about David other than he is a wonderful, fantastic, magnificent and quite an amazing human being and continues to be more so with every appearance.

    (((hugs to SB…for always being there for me)))

    I blame Abrra’s phone for any typos. πŸ˜‰

    Happy Veterans Day, everyone. My dad was in the Seabees in WW2 in Okinawa and Hawaii. And back in the days of drafts, my late husband was drafted twice…served 18 months in Germany at the beginning of Viet Nam. Then, was drafted again by Pres. Kennedy because of the Cuban Crisis. We served another 1 yr. in Alabama.

    Thank you for your support for the site. We realize that being a fan site is a responsibility. With so many sites for fans to visit, we know we are on the right track by the amount of commenters and (shy readers πŸ˜‰ ) who come here daily to respond.

    I grew up in the last days of the draft. Interesting times, indeed. My dream is to be standing at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC on Veterans day. I want to also witness the dedication ceremony to the unknown soldier, who represents all those who fought and died so that we can be in a free country.

    The video in #3 is by nareejo who interviewed David in Manila. She has written some background on how the interview came about in her blog, chordsofd the music of my life.

    Here is an excerpt:

    An interview that never was

    Can words ever express how one feels when a dream comes true?

    Can one ever prepare oneself to meet THE ARCHULETA?

    β€œNumb” is a word that comes to mind! ..and β€œscared”… lol

    I had so many things going on at that time, that I really had no time to think about it.. or maybe I didn’t want to think about it because I would freak out! But I seemed to be spazzing in my subconsciousness and dreams and I would wake up in a panic! What am I going to say to him? ??? I had to prepare!

    I have listened to so many interviews that ask nonsensical, repetitive, embarrassing, weird questions that he must be tired of answering and do not bring out the person that he is. I vowed that I would ask intelligent , insightful and meaningful questions worthy of his intelligence….

    I served 7 years as a nurse in the army, stateside and two tours in Germany, one in a mash unit for the highly decorated 3rd Infantry Division. Some of the best times and folks I have ever known.

    Just watched the interview with Naree. She asked just the right questions and was so poised in his presence. I’m impressed! Looking forward to hearing that MJ song he’s working on. MKOC tour set list pretty please?

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to wish The Voice a happy 2 year anniversary. I work with the best admins in the world who I can honestly say I love and consider dear, close friends. I met Patty in SLC and AZ and now in a few short weeks, I will get to finally meet Abrra and Bebe! I think I’m as excited about that as seeing David again! Thanks to all the staff writers who share their talent with us and put up with my faults. I am an imperfect being but I truly try to do the right thing, though sometimes I fail. I hope you all know how much you are appreciated. Thanks to all who read and comment or just read. This is a labor of love but it IS a labor that has a cost. I would do it all again and gladly because he, and all of you, are so worth it. You add so much joy to my life just by being here and, for the love of David, sharing your hopes, your anxieties, your humor, your talents, and most of all, your hearts.

But we got so much more; an opportunity to meet other fans from across the globe right here on this site.

    Wishing a belated Happy 2nd Anniversary to The Voice with a haiku poem:

    Grateful to this site,
    Celebrating The Voice which,
    Inspires and gives joy!

    Nareejo; #3 video … You did such a great job … really wanted the interview to go on as David seemed so engaged and relaxed.

    Jans; It’s wonderful to hear of your work in the nursing home. Sometimes just the time one takes to listen, to talk or share music can bring a moment of joy.

    SF; There is such a special bond that you have with your sister … thank you for sharing and glad that you are safely home.

    Pocoelsy; I recently thought of you as one of the students shared the horrible plight of his family in Thailand related to the devastating floods … sending prayers and hopes for better days ahead.

    Happy Veteran’s Day! It’s a privilege to work with veterans so thank you to Angelica, to all who’ve served and are continuing to serve our country.

    Finally, Happy 3rd Anniversary to David’s 1st album! Sad to have missed its inception but so glad to be here for the journey ahead!

    Though she was able to watch the DALIM3 Concert, she has never met David upclose. She lives in Davao City, a plane ride away from Manila. I wish that someday she gets to sit down to interview him.

    The picture in #58 is a study in body language.
    Make your own conclusions πŸ˜‰

    In the video #59, David says he is drawn to the music of the 60’s & 70’s. I agree with what he says about it being a more free time in music. The people he mentioned were songwriting icons of that era. Knowing that David reads liner notes,he had to see how influential Carole King was as a songwriter as well as a performer.

    Hi everyone,

    Okay, I’m not a great writer but here’s a few words about last nights performance. David was absolutely wonderful and pitch perfect! He actually sang 4 songs with What Child Is This being the first performance of the night. MS played David’s arrangement. It was fantastic! If I’m not mistaking, he only sang once in the first half and I was wondering if that was it…WHAT? NO MORE DAVID? UGH! But the second half made up for it quickly. MS did their version of Silent Night and David did the ooh’s and awww’s with Chip David. Beautiful low voice range. They sound great together. Next time he came out and sang Pat-a-pan and then went to the piano and sang To Be With You, with Rachel Flatt skating to it. There was a music glitch in there somewhere and all you heard was David playing and singing, so they did a retake after and it was perfect! So lucky to hear him sing it twice. When he hit the high sustained note on “way” my mom turned to me and said, WOW! This is the first time she’s heard him live. The last song he sang was one of MS songs that I was not familiar with, but it was soft and sweet and AMAZING! Sorry I don’t remember the name. David had me mesmerized!

    It was a wonderful night and you all have to watch it on the 27th! I just hope they edit all of David’s songs in. He was perfect! He did his little waves after every song and let me tell you, the crowd went crazy whenever he came out!

    I didn’t have a video camera but I saw lots of people taking video, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that some show up soon,

    SweetonDA: Thank you so much for that review of the Pandora Unforgettable Moments on Ice 2011 from last night. We needed that review! Looking forward to the program Nov. 27th. Did David sing Pat-A-Pan with MS or with a track? Was there backing music to TBWY or just piano?

    You guys are so good, how did I miss that! Here I was looking at the grin on the guys’ face in the background, duh.

    I thought the write up was his perception that this was a skating audience, and that the production was geared more toward acknowledging the skaters and not so much the musicians. The entire review was a bit odd.

  82. Bluebird, he had backing track with Pat-a-pan, but MS was also playing. With TBWY their keyboardist sang the duet part with him and there was backtrack too.

    I was hoping he would sing a new song, so when he sang with them, Above the Northern Lights, I was just so excited I did’t even watch the skater. I don’t even remember who it was, one of the girls I think. David sang beautifully. I noticed he would watch the conductor for his cues to come in. It’s a good think I’ll be able to watch it again on the 27th to see what I missed.

    As far as that review goes, I don’t know what he was listening to or seeing, but David was not relegated to background music. He was widely acknowledged whenever he came out on the stage with loud applause, much more than MS got IMO. Many were watching DA and not the skater. Practically every time DA left the stage there were girls screaming I love you’s to him. Maybe the reporter was put off by David’s humbleness, you know how he never brings attention to himself? He would give a little wave, turn and clap for the band, clap for the skater and quietly walk off through all the applause. Overshadowed?…no way!

    SweetonDA,

    Thanks so much for the recap! I will for sure be taping this show. David, Mannheim Steamroller, Ice skating, 18 Christmas songs, what’s not to love?

    Well, I’m not a fan of his choice of clothes next to Manheim Steamroller in their tuxes and the lovely lady at the keyboard behind him in the gorgeous dΓ©colletΓ© gown. Not saying he should have worn a tux but something like the lead pic for this post from the Cleveland “Skate for the Heart” show would have been better for a nationally televised show. He seemed both over-dressed in his coat and scarf next to the lady with the bare shoulders and under-dressed for the occasion.

    JMO.
