  1. has comments from the concert…’where he brought the house down’…not surprised because that is what he does best!






  3. MANILA — American Idol star David Archuleta will perform his rendition of “Nandito Ako” for the first time on television this Sunday.

    The international singer will grace the “Talentadong Pinoy: International Edition” episode…

    SO we will see it thanks to ninjas I am certain…



  4. Just wanted to bring this over from VABeachArchie…moved them in a big way…

    WOW! Sitting here in tears…so PROUD of David/Josh! And from the tweets …so are alot of other people! The cast was BLOWN AWAY…the VOICE does it every time! Ohhhh…by the way…Josh looked GREAT!



  5. oheulacaballero Eula Caballero
    “@MyDearWriter: I think most of the hearts here just melted…. #NanditoAko”– I don’t have any. JB had mine. OMG :O

    (Just a few of the highlights recorded)..



  6. I am the morning owl on deck…

    I have a weird sense of humor I know but ending up with the initials ‘JB’ is funny and clever…some fames can be duplicated in the frenzy and even surpassed…



  7. Just one more…

    “gtongi Giselle Tongi
    The crowd is going wild for @DavidArchie AKA Josh Bradley. Wow I am blown away by his presence on stage! #proudmama

    “MyDear Writer @MyDearWriter
    Amazing performance by @DavidArchie. We’re all in tears. We are at awe! ♥ #NanditoAko”

    Its just hard to put a good book down…



  8. Hey…I am almost gone…there are tweets from Eula and Jasmine as well but this from…

    “Shanny in Australia says:

    February 3, 2012 at 7:49 am

    Let them be in awe of the fact that they were in the presence of such greatness these last three weeks and that greatness was so true and authentic, that it did not have to proclaim itself. It was meekness and humility, a presence that was felt but not entirely understood UNTIL THIS MOMENT, when their eyes were opened, their understanding enlightened and they beheld with their own eyes and heard with their own ears the power of THE ARCHULETA!!!”

    Haha. SandyBeaches is so enthusiastic this morning. Love it!! Love you, SB!!

    New and exciting tweets from MyDear Writer…

    “If only I could spill the beans…. #NanditoAko”

    “My heart is still beating so fast… counting the days.. thinking of ways… I literally screamed when I heard about it. ♥♥♥”

    “OMG @kariontour remember what u mentioned before the concert? Oh My Josh!!!!”

    “OMG…. OMG…. I just heard the most amazing news!”

    Hmmm…what could it be?!


  14. You know my mother taught me that it isn’t nice to tease people…I have always remembered that! Hey we would like to scream too…now!

    Thank you Angelica for sorting out the week’s timeline for events. It can be a bit confusing for those of us so far away from the scene. So much to process. He will be leaving that part of the world soon.David sure is going out with a BANG!



  16. Abrra…somehow I see it that he is not ‘going out’ with a bang or a fizzle or anything. He has always been different with his plans and they may include ‘heaven only’ knows what? To those I dared to share this with, I see something within his aura in the 6 month mark…now for my straight jacket right?



  17. Abrra said

    I am referring to his exit from that part of the world. There will be fireworks at the “Pyropalooza”.



  18. Haha Abrra…I guess it could have been looked at in a couple of ways because it is near closing time with his performances…Arizona was memorable with fireworks just as he finished singing…

    Oh My Josh SB…you have me giggling this morning. Loving all this!

    Concert scene done! The crowd was amazing for Josh! Thanks everyone for coming out and supporting Josh!!



  21. Dayzee said

    I imagine for most of the people David has been working with these past few weeks that this is the first time they had seen the transformation of David/SuperDavid that occurs when David steps on the stage. Wouldn’t it have been fun to witness that?

    SB mentions how the memory of concerts attended still excites us. Just the thought of the power of David on the stage is so great it gets our pulses racing. Even though we cannot attend the “upcoming events” that Angelica has listed for us, we are still excited for those who will be there.

    Abrra, thanks for the bandage explanation. Are you certain? Don’t want to miss a chance to worry.


  22. kaycee said

    With all the over the top tweets about the concert, I can’t wait to see the finished product! I knew that he wouldn’t disappoint…but it sounds like he did what he does best…surpass even the loftiest of expectations. I bet it felt great for him to get back up on the concert stage doing what he loves the most–music. I’m so excited for David and all the wonderful experiences he has had the past 3 weeks. I can’t believe it’s over. I’m sure his body could use a bit of R&R…haha, I know I could! Now…about those recording sessions…(sorry, David…take all the time you need!)

    What a surreal experience for David to go from super-celebrity, his every move cheered and cherished, autographs, pictures, tons of fans…to relative anonymity on his mission. So many interesting life lessons for someone so young…and yet, someone who appreciates and embraces every step of growth along the way.


  23. So David sang this…

    Just imagine David singing this and you will know what they ‘had to put up’ with last night!!!



  24. betsy said

    Hmmm. So THOSE are his favorite jeans. 🙂


  25. Heidijoy said

    So much excitement. Thanks for posting the Rainbow song SB!! Oh Boy!! Can’t wait!

    Betsy- Kari put” favorite jeans” in quotations which made me wonder? Maybe they are the ones maybe not as he had other scenes shot earlier. ha! ha!


  26. So enchanting and yes, he probably owns it as of last evening…


    Fallin’ out, fallin’ in
    Nothing’s sure in this world no, no
    Breakin’ out, breakin’ in
    Never knowin’ what lies ahead
    We can really never tell it all no, no, no
    Say goodbye, say hello
    To a lover or friend
    Sometimes we never could understand
    Why some things begin then just end
    We can really never tell it all no, no, no

    But oh, can’t you see
    That no matter what happens
    Life goes on and on
    So baby, just/please smile
    Coz i’m always around you
    And ill make you see how beautiful
    Life is for you and me”…

    Love, love, love Rainbow. Can’t wait to hear him sing it. I’m sure he’ll make it sublime.
    He has a crazy schedule. But Monday looks free. Wonder where he would be. Maybe I should go coughstalkhimcough, sorry I mean look out for him if I happen to be out. haha.


  29. Hi Nanaweize, this is a big day with all of the concert revelations and the songs!!

    At first glance of the pictures available, David has a little Beatles 1960s jacket going on…and I really like it!



  30. kaycee said

    Just listened to “Rainbow”…wow, what a beautiful, heart-felt song. Can’t wait to hear it “Davidfied”!

    Sigh…these past 3 weeks have been so awesome for David and all his fans. I don’t think he could have possibly given more of himself than he did. What a wonderful farewell gift to all of us.


  31. Oh Kaycee, somehow his farewell won’t be quite the same as we are imagining.

    Before I leave I want to post this…kricket @kricket_rc234
    When he looked (my) our way, I think my brain did a rewire!!!!!!! FREAKING FIRST TIME I EVER STARED INTO HIS EYES. HOLY BATMAN HAZEL EYES.

    There is no other JB quite like this one universally!!

  33. Heidijoy said

    Now word is @davidachie was showing them the Dougie!!! Oh my David is going well beyond what I could have ever imagined. When I think what he has given us with MKOC and this mini series, I marvel at his foresight in giving his fans so many good memories to hang onto. ……and there is more: Fan party, Singapore, Phillipine concert, Recordings, Mini Series, More recordings. ???More appearances………
    Stay tuned!!!


  34. djafan said

    Hello everyone!!! Epicness all around!! I’m enjoying all the spazztic tweeting lol. Had to bring these over. David being David ♥

    Emilee Mellark @emmmiley

    want me to share some behind-the-scenes moments? Lol I wrote it down since I can’t keep track of the things he does off cam. Haha

    He turned his back from the audience, so we’re seeing “his sexy back”, a lot of girls squealed and stuff. Then some clapped.

    He faced us and said, “Why are you clapping?” haha man that was epic. His voice’s still echoing in my head.

    He kept on whistling the song Rainbow. One sexy moment there.

    Another funny moment: the prod. peeps were fast forward-ing the song Wherever You Are so twas making a sorta squeaky sound.

    Then he heard it. And mimicked the way it was played. He was all, “the wind that blows blaaah..”

    Well, it doesn’t sound funny here but there, all of us were lmao-ing. HE. WAS. SO. CUTE. He keeps on rocking his chair, back and forth.

    I’m flooding again. I’m sorry. I think it’s time for the fangirl to hit the hay.

    And this from My Dear Writer…Yes like we’ve always said David knows how to dance.

    MyDear Writer @MyDearWriter

    Oh yeah @DavidArchie is a good dancer!

    The Stage. Beautiful.

    Sponsored Children in Philippines Meet David Archuleta
    Posted on February 3, 2012
    by Martin Nanawa, ChildFund Philippines

    Children in ChildFund Philippines’ programs and a few of their school peers received a special treat last Sunday when David Archuleta made a surprise appearance at a ChildFund gathering held at a local school.

    Children from the Teatro Bu-bot [arm-in-arm] Children’s Advocacy Theater had prepared all week to mount their much-touted “Many Faces of Poverty” performance for ChildFund Philippines National Director Katherine Manik, and her unspecified guest.

    Little did they know that the special guest would turn out to be none other than recording artist David Archuleta, who is in the Philippines filming a television miniseries.

    Archuleta, now 22, who finished runner up in the seventh season of American Idol in 2008, teamed with ChildFund for his 2011 My Kind of Christmas tour. He is also sponsoring a child from Honduras, his mother’s native country.

    Archuleta has developed a large fan base in the Philippines since his American Idol debut and through his three previous visits to Manila. Filipinos are highly anticipating the upcoming miniseries Nandito Ako, starring Archuleta and local talents.

    His unannounced appearance on Sunday caught the children by surprise. Thrilled and starstruck, the children quickly recovered to deliver the program they’d prepared.

    Archuleta fell silent during the troupe’s simple performance, which the children themselves conceptualized, articulating the different faces that poverty and disadvantage assumes in their community. The 10-minute skit is wordless, preferring to describe exploitation, vice and neglect through music, movement and expressive dance.

    Masks partially obscure each of their faces as they depict society’s fevers, which are shed finally through the expression of children’s growing cognizance and assertion of their rights and responsibilities. The skit illustrates how children, their community and ChildFund help foster an environment conducive to the totality of each child’s life and identity.

    Moved by the performance that he described as “amazing” and “powerful,” Archuleta took the floor in turn, regaling the children with an a capella rendition of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge over Troubled Water,” followed by an encore of Robbie Williams’ “Angels.”

    Archuleta then spent time meeting the children in small groups. Though he currently sponsors a child in Honduras, Sunday’s gathering was the first time Archuleta had the opportunity to interact with children in ChildFund’s programs.

    The theater troupe, sponsored children and even the school’s marching band had time to ask Archuleta questions and share stories of what sponsorship means to them.

    With translation assistance by ChildFund Philippines Program Director Mark Dasco, sponsored children told Archuleta: “Please help us share the privilege of sponsorship with others, by inviting more people to sponsor [children].”

    As the event came to an end, many children said they would long remember this exciting day. As he departed, Archuleta expressed his happiness at meeting the children: “Gosh, I feel so good today! Thank you so much for this experience!”

    You are so right. Love is what fuels him. He really is something else. ♥

    #27 Love the outfit on stage. On every trip to the Philippines, David gets the coolest clothes. Remember the Navy blue military style jacket and the baby blue jacket ? I want to shop there!!

    If they didn’t give him the name ,”Josh”, what would you guys suggest would be a really cool name for his character? Rick, Steve, Nate, John, Shane, Abe, Ben, ……?


  42. bebereader said

    If only we all could have been there!

    These tweets are from an event organizer who was there.

    Dominick Discarga @DominDis

    At the stage, David held Eula’s hands soo tight while
    staring at her eyes.

    David start singing Nandito Ako, then stares at Eula. Went down the stage, took her hand and brought him to the stage.

    Still here at the set of #NanditoAKO acting as @DavidArchie’s audience. Blown away by Wherever You Are and Nandito Ako, simply the best!

    @mhel4dja waaaahhh!!! Super pagod ng legs ko. Pero sulit…ate mhel you MUST listen to David’s Wherever You Are and Nandito Ako.

    David and Eula’s eyes met and tears flow from Eula’s eyes. David wiped it with his thumb and touched her cheeks.

    @lovefrommich @kimak @frogcooke yeah. It’s all in Filipino. His lines are in English but at some point he speaks Filipino too. Ahaha

    For more, see his Twitter page:!/DominDis

    In my mail today a random link that turned out to be a very nice surprise. This young singer is a contestant on American Idol this year. He is going to Hollywood. I hope he does well despite the horrid group auditions that they must do. His name is Jared Keim. Who is his favorite Idol contestant>? Let him tell you.

    Here he sings a cover of You Can . I think he is talented.

    Some press about him.

    Good luck, Jared!

    I am going to record the livesteam. If it comes out with decent quality, I will have video for Unplugged! 😉


    We liked your quote so much we put it in the top left sidebar under David’s picture!



  57. bebereader said

    Nice hearing “You Can” again. It’s been a long time.
    Thanks, Abs. 🙂

    Here’s David:

    To those who saw my crying at Josh Bradley’s (David Archuleta) Concert:

    Don’t worry about me. I saw your tweets and im so thankful that you’re always there for me. Im just sad because I will miss everyone. The staffs, the people that I get to see everyday. The people that im looking forward to see when I wake up, and the people that shared laughter’s with me even in just small span of time. The pain that everyone is going through now will make us stronger though, the bond will never be forgotten by everyone. We hope that its not a “mini-series” anymore so we can still shoot for a long time and stay together for a long time but not. We just hope that you all will enjoy Nandito Ako. We’ve worked so hard and we’re hoping that all our sacrifices will be replaced by your support!

    Its David’s first acting project so im looking forward for the support for him. All the Archies will be proud of him even more. You made the right decision to support him because he is really a good man and really cares for you guys.

  63. fenfan said

    #56 Wow! Thank you Abrra! Now I feel the pressure to top that with my recap. LOL.

    “David and Eula’s eyes met and tears flow from Eula’s eyes. David wiped it with his thumb and touched her cheeks.”

    OMJosh how did she manage to keep upright when he did that! Nandito Ako sounds like a goodbye song so I am still hoping for a sad ending. But if it’s to be Eula I can handle a happy one. #teameula

    FenFan…look up left sidebar 🙂


  65. Angelica said

    It’s LIVE!!!!


  66. bebereader said

    Angelica #61 They’re all feeling it. Working hard on a project for three full weeks, sharing all kinds of emotions. They’ve gotten so close and now it’s coming to an end.

    “You made the right decision to support him because he is really a good man and really cares for you guys.”

    Got all choked up after reading that line. Wonder what he shared with her about us?


  67. djafan said

    They’re playing David songs!!!! Parachutes and Airplanes!!!!!!!!!!!

    StarHub Entertainment

    Hey everyone, David Archuleta is coming to chat with us RIGHT HERE on Facebook this Tuesday! Drop us your questions that you would like David to answer via hashtag #ArchieinSG on twitter.

    Details at See you there! 😉


  68. djafan said

    Sweet My Dear Writer did share The Voice with David and crew. They do know we love him and he is worth everything and more. They now know what David is all about first hand.


  69. bebereader said

    I’m so impressed with their pre-show playlist.

    They are even playing “Senseless”!!!

  74. bebereader said

    Hi SandyBeaches 🙂

    Been trying to find an answer to your question in #70 but not succeeding. His voice is so heavenly; I never want this to end. 🙂

    (“Something ‘Bout Love”)

    Maybe they’re still waiting for the place to fill up. They only distributed 500 tickets for this.


  84. Geez after 1am here…when is this going to start??



  85. MT said

    I’m here too and waiting for the live stream.


  86. Really, the ride of our lives…really??? Hmm yes I suppose…



  87. fenfan said

    I am eating lunch as I wait. Hope they start soon, chores are waiting.


  88. gladys said

    iam here, always here


  89. Set another place for MT..



  90. Abrra said

    I am there, waiting to record David. Did you all notice the crawl message before the livestream went live?
    It said there is a press conference at 7pm their time ( Approx.7 am EST). I guess we will be up all night 🙂



  91. bebereader said

    *waves* to MT and gladys and Abs:)

    SB, It sounds noisier than before. Seems to be filling up. Don’t go anywhere! This is the clearest Ustream I’ve ever seen.


  92. sweetonda said

    I’m there bebe. I signed in too late to her Senseless and I love that song!

    Hi to everyone. This has been a fantabulous 3 weeks!


  93. stenocruiser said

    I’m here as well — hello everyone! So proud of David, so proud!

  96. bebereader said

    *waves* to Sweetonda and Steno

    I love this! It’s kind of like being in The Voice Unplugged together!

    Abs, I saw that note about the presscon. Ayayay David keeps us up all night again. Who needs sleep anyway? It’s highly overated!

    Oh my….Betsy, they’re playing our song now! “Everything And More”…


  97. sweetonda said

    That should be hear, not her…I’m typing in the dark and it’s not working to well.


  98. djafan said

    Hello all who just joined in!!!

    Gladys, MT, Steno, Sweetonda!

    Gladys…thank you for always being here 🙂


  99. Bebe, I have this on my bedside table…I think that I might fall asleep before long, David’s music does that to me and it is late! Just holler out please when you see David!

    Remember his name? Well is that David or Josh?? Geez…never forget…



  100. Angelica said

    Jan, maybe you should clear your cache? Restart and go back in.


  101. Abrra said

    Try another browser. Internet Explorer or

    Google Chrome

    I have to use chrome for UStream or my PC freezes.



  102. MT said

    LOL Thanks for the seat. 🙂

    *waves* back at Bebe and to everyone else.

    I hope it starts soon. I cant stay up too late. I have to get up early to go out of town. 😦

    You’re a treasure to record this for us. Thank you! At least I should be back for chat tomorrow night and can catch it there if I miss tonight.


  103. gladys said

    look at that face, I did not know that smile, he is very happy when he laughs a lot like his dad.
    He does not have that smile, that sometimes used for photos.
    United States have two years to love him as the Filipinos, and not talking about the fans.


  104. bebereader said

    *waves* to Jans

    Hope you get it working soon. Did you refresh the page? Ummm trying to think of something else to help you, aside from Angelica’s excellent tips.


    SB#99 I know how soothing his voice is. Try to hold on. I think its starting now.


  105. bebereader said

    Ummm. Or not. LOL


  106. Gladys #103…what are you telling us, haha??



  107. MT said

    Jan, I’m using Internet Explorer and usually a Ustream starts automatically, but this one didn’t for me. I was frustrated until I realized I had to press PLAY on this one. LOL
    Ok, that’s probably lame advice compared to everyone else’s and you may have already done that, but it fooled me. 😳


  108. Dayzee said

    Another night of David waiting. What else would I do?


  109. bebereader said

    Hey Dayzee – This is the best ticket in town! Glad you’re here with us. 🙂

    Where’s skydancer????


  110. djafan said

    This is so dang exciting!!!!! AWWWWWWW We Love You David!!!!!!!!!!


  111. First we had the word…Imagine…which we have used a thousand times and then there is…Wait…and we do that…so he asks us to imagine and wait…oh how we do both..



  112. Angelica said

    Sky is there on the front row with me Bebe. Wanna sit with us?


  113. MT said

    108. Dayzee,
    hahaha What Else?

    *sings* ♫ ♪ Nothing Else Better To Do! ♪ ♫


  114. gladys said

    106 + again failed my English, sorry.
    I was saying, when David was going to his mission, the United States have two years to think about the talent of david.
    When I say America, I do not mean the fans, I mean the record companies, music industry.
    And as for the picture post 94, I said that did not know that smile.
    When David, has that smile so wide, it looks like his dad.


  115. bebereader said

    SB, haha We’re just “Senseless”! LOL

    Angelica, Who can sit?

    *paces* the floors


  116. Dayzee said

    We must be in the right place. David on the soundtrack and people practicing “We love you David”.


  117. jans11 said

    Got it!!! Thanks guys!!


  118. bebereader said

    WTG Jans!!


  119. Dayzee said

    How is that looking on your new screen Jan?


  120. Bebe…no it is more comfortably two pillows, one big quilt…two dogs…and others haha…but all are sleeping to the music…2 hours later,



  121. Angelica said

    Whoo hoo Jan! Glad you could join us!


  122. djafan said

    SB, lol We sure do both 🙂

    Those theatre seats sure look plush.


  123. bebereader said

    SB, Glad you’re comfy.

    Everytime I think it’s about to start, it doesn’t.
    I think I’ll be quiet.
    Abs says I talk too much anyway. 😉

    Admin edit Abrra (she does) 😉


  124. djafan said

    Gosh I love David fans!!!


  125. gladys said

    ustream live, fans of david, is more advanced, this may be? the image is much better.


  126. djafan said

    Gladys the ustream is being done by TV5 tv station in the Philippines.


  127. jans11 said

    Dayzee…it’s looking great!! Just be glad when David comes on!

    I usually never have any problems with ustream, but nothing would work until I installed google chrome and it came up ok.

    Hi everyone! 🙂


  133. bebereader said

    David is onstage now singing “My Kind of Perfect”!!!!!!

    It was worth the two-hour wait!!!!!!

    *waves* to Angelofdja


  134. sweetonda said

    awww, he sounds tired to me. I hope he can get some rest real soon.


  135. fenfan said

    that sneak peek was all kinds of awesome!!!!!!! i want to watch the series NOW!!!!!!!!!! david in a chicken (?) suit???? hahahaaha!!!!!


  136. Watch the body language…there is one co star who is closer to David…



  137. stenocruiser said

    Oh my, the tears — there and here.


  138. djafan said



  139. Dayzee said

    So much fun watching David have a good time 🙂


  140. gladys said

    this woman is destroying my ears, God speaks all the time


  141. The Prince wow,…he was fabulous…We got to watch the premier with them and boy the tears flowed between the three of them and David never stopped smiling…



  142. Fiona said

    Aaah, that was incredible!!! David really felt the love! I love how it was just the girls crying at first but before long he joined in too! So touching! Now we REALLY can’t wait to see this series!!


  143. bebereader said

    I’ve never seen a more beautiful reception, so much love outpouring.

    I’ve never seen David look more handsome.
    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    I’m so impressed with the sneak peak; I don’t even where to start. I am floored!


  144. Skydancer1x said

    watching his face, watching him finally soak in the love from his fans, was just the best thing ever.


  145. Angelica said

    That was so awesome. The love in that place was incredible and moved him to tears.

    The trailer was more than I imagined he would be his first time really acting. If this is a taste of things to come we are in for a powerful experience.

    Abrra is in her laboratory as I type. 😉


  146. sweetonda said

    That was so awesome. David was so happy he was about to burst. I hope they show the preview again and JR gets it for us.

    I can go to bed happy now having dreams of Nandito Ako and Josh Bradley. 🙂

    Nite everyone. Have a wonderful weekend!


  147. Angelica said

    “I’ve never seen David look more handsome.”

    Bebe, Naree was there.


  148. sweetonda said

    Oh Angelica, we must have posted at the same time. Glad to hear Abrra is working on it. I need to watch it again. It was so wonderful. I’m so proud of David!


  149. gladys said

    I can ask a question?
    I sit at my computer and I’m waiting, but do not know why, I’m waiting.
    The next event is the press conference Josh, right?
    Or am I paralyzed by the advance of the miniseries?


  150. Angelica said

    I am feeling the same Gladys. I am so hyped!


  151. Skydancer1x said

    Bebeeeee!!<3 I totally agree.

    omg. and the fight scene!!!!! I cannot wait to see that trailer again.The fans were going crazy!!!!
    how to get to sleep now? that, is the question.


  152. angelofdja said

    Oh my Josh! YAY!!! WOOT!!! I really didn’t know what to expect with the miniseries, my expectations were nothing big. After seeing the premier I am a pile of mush! Fifteen more days. I don’t think I can stand it! Ha! Ha!

    A chicken suit? 😆


  153. Abrra said

    Here is MKOP and the trailer I recorded. thanks to them!



  154. djafan said

    Gladys, I’m here just blown away.


  155. jans11 said

    Watching the preview with David was the ultimate for me! It was beyond my expectations…which is always the case with David…he never fails!! Love seeing them give him a great “send-off” and it was all I could do to hold back the tears. This is just so good for him..he so deserves every bit of all the love all his fans give him!!


  156. jans11 said

    Forgot to thank you for posting the preview so fast Abrra! Don’t know if I’ll ever get enough of it til the rest comes out on the 20th!


  157. bebereader said


    Naree was there? OMGosh!

    We’re gonna get great pics!


  158. gladys said

    muchas gracias kara.


  159. SandyBeaches said

    I think that I feel the way we do after an incredible concert experience and we were given unexpected surprises. The love he was feeling was partly from his new relationships and the closeness he feels with such a project. He adores his co-stars.

    Well this has been a good reason to be up in the middle of the night, fabulous actually and hey you were nearly all here!!!

    We have witnessed another one of his firsts or maybe more than one. Great hugs!!



  160. gladys said

    david againnnnnnnnnnn


  161. kaycee said

    Abbra, thanks sooo much for posting the vid…I missed it earlier. Aaahhh…so happy for David. So much love going both ways! (One teeny question…was that David in shorts on the beach?…with the blue and white striped shirt?)


  162. jans11 said

    Was wondering the same thing! Sure looked like him! Dang, just have to watch it again!!<3

  169. Abrra said

    Thank you for the pictures Vee! I am up and waiting to record the presscon.

    I am not sure if this part of the day’s events were recorded. The UStream was dark when I left at 4am EST. David sang on stage dressed in a nice jacket, sweater and tie combo. Very much like Contigo outfit.

    Didn’t make it for the Presscon, so thanks Abrra for taping.

    JR has an interpretation of their presentation to David up on TDC.

  174. Well Abrra…have you ever brought around videos any more sought after than these? As a pro video ninja now, it has been in record time! So very much to see and I am pleased that they recorded all that they did for his fans…Oh boy…and thanks for the vids!



  175. djafan said

    Utterly magnificent Nandito Ako!!!!!


  176. Blueberry Slush (Ice) said

    O.O!!!!!! Just stupendously m.a.g.i.c.a.l !!!!!!!! He has just melted my heart all over again! So so so proud of him! Never imagined the depth of love that he evokes time and time again. If he only knew the power he holds over us …..

    Abrra! Can I say you are the best! Missed all the fun last nite so a huge thank you for capturing these special moments … wish I could give you a big hug! 🙂


  177. angelofdja said

    You ROCK Abrra! Thank you so very much for all your dedication to bringing us the best of David, and so speedy too! 😉


  178. kaycee said

    That song. How does he he do it?…touch your heart so deeply…transform you to a different place…bring you to tears…when he, himself has been going non-stop for 24 hours or so! An intense 24 hours, being pulled in a hundred different directions…the big concert, the Grand Fans Day, the presscon, the taping for Talentadon Pinoy, M&Gs, signings, good byes…and all this after very early mornings, very longs days, and very late nights taping for the show!…and then he’s right on to Singapore! I don’t know how he is holding it together! I’m barely holding it together, and all I had to do was sit at the computer! How does he find the emotional and physical strength to step out of the craziness and sing LIKE THAT!? I guess it’s all about love–the love he feels from the fans…and for the fans. Hmmmm, to quote a cheesy song from the 70’s: “Love Will Keep Us Together”!… perhaps that is what is keeping him going (because there is definitely an abundance of that)!

    Abrra, you’re amazing.

    Silverfox, I miss your prayer in behalf of our very busy, always giving boy. May God’s blessings be upon you, David, watching over you and giving you the strength you need.

  181. Skydancer1x said

    Oh Abrra!!!♥ Thank you for all you do for us, you are an absolute angel♥ Now sleep.

    David sang that song so beautifully….had me in tears.

    176.Blueberry Slush,(Ice!) HAHA! I like that, he has turned us all into slush,or mush, and made us gush! ♥

    Kaycee, I don’t know how he does it.It’s exhausting just following his schedule! He runs on love♥ he’s like the energizer bunny, he never stops.
    The worlds most gifted singer has caught the acting bug. He was bitten, and we are smitten♥for ever more.
    He is a multifacited, rare,GEM


  182. Fiona said

    Kaycee, you said what I feel too, but so beautifully! David is just incredible! God bless him.

    Yes, and THANK YOU, Abrra, for all you do! Much appreciated!

  185. emmegirl said

    kaycee 178 ♥

    Just got home today, completely stunned at what I am seeing. That trailer….where do I start, uuummmm, the bunny suit maybe…or how bout Josh taking a swing… or getting taken out by a motorcycle… or those tender, vulnerable glances… or maybe the beach scene in shorts… the concert Josh, oh my…. and then there’s angry Josh, tearful Josh…. the hugging, embracing, brushing of costars cheeks Josh….aye-yi-yi David.

    He really has acting chops, and it excites me to no end to hear him talk about how much he enjoyed it and really wants to do more.

    And then I watched David in the 42 min video in #173 and the 11 min video on mjsblog. His sincerity and appreciation of the filipino’s and their warmth and their culture, his charm – so well spoken, his humility, humor, playfulness, his acknowledgement of the unexpected personal growth from this experience (growth that we can already see), talking about the timing of this right before he leaves – that it was “exactly what I needed”, the shots of him and the girls during the trailer (he looks so happy, so proud), all the tears after, the kinship and caring, a real affinity. And then he sang Nandito Ako… brought me to tears, made my heart just ache….. no idea of the meaning of the words, but I understood the emotion of the song. David, Paula was dead on 4 years ago, you are ridiculous.

    I will wait a lifetime of tomorrows David.


  186. Abrra said

    Grand Fans Day David listens to the fan tribute

    Uploaded by DAsquaredmusic

    Thanks to JR and Kia Alvares for this lyric sheet

    Nandito Kami (We Are Here) Adaptation

    Tagalog Lyrics: Kia Alvarez
    English Lyrics: jackryan4DA

    Performed by Symphony Archustra for
    David Archuleta during the Grand Fans Day 2012 🙂

    Mayroon kaming nais iparating (We have something to tell you)
    Maaari bang awitin (Can we say it with a song?)
    Alam mo bang para sa iyo itong himig (Do you realize that this song is for you?)
    Handog nitong isang tinig (A gift of melody from our collective voice)
    At sa iyong pagtahak sa bagong landas (And as you start on your new path)
    Pagmamahal nami’y hindi magwawakas (Our love for you will never end)
    Kahit ano pa mang mangyari’y iyong tandaan (No matter what happens please remember)
    Suporta’t paghanga sa ‘yo’y walang hanggan (Our support and admiration is yours forevermore)

    Nandito kami (We are here)
    Maghihintay sa ‘yo (We’ll be waiting for you)
    Iyong tinig lagi sa aming puso (Your voice will always be in our hearts)
    Kung sakaling ika’y mag alinlangan (And if ever you have any doubt)
    Huwag kang mag alala (Please do not worry)
    May nagmamahal sa ‘yo kami’y nandito (We are here loving you)

    Sa panahong ika’y mawawala (When you are gone and away)
    Di kailangan ang mangamba (There is no need to fear)
    Pagka’t kami’y mga tunay mong tagahanga (For we are your true fans)
    Dala namin ang iyong musika (Your music will stay with us)

    (Repeat pre-chorus, chorus, chorus with modulation)

    Kami’y nandito… (We are here)

From the first time I witnessed his unexplainable transformation on stage, I knew he would realize someday that acting would be in his future and that he would love it and be VERY GOOD and eventually GREAT at it. It’s only a matter of time before we see David on the BIG SCREEN. His acting skills will soon match his considerable ability to sing anything in any language like no other. His photo should be used in dictionaries to describe the meaning of “MAGNIFICENT”.

    My only regret is that David’s acting potential was recognized first by the Sony Asia & TV5 people who acted wisely on their hunch about David. And they hit the jackpot when David was very willing to do things he has never done before and step WAY out of his comfort zone. But truthfully, I would have preferred that David have his first real acting experience here in the US, no offense to the wise & wonderful Filipinos. The industry honchos here have had blinders on where David is concerned. It’s confusing and sad that David is not been widely recognized for the immense talent he is here in his own country. Major US labels & management agencies should be promising him the moon & bowing down to him just to get him to sign with them. Pursuing him during his MKOC Tour was a little too late since David already had a different path in mind. I hope, actually I KNOW David is being observed now by movie industry VIPs. My fervent wish is that there will be projects proposed to David when he returns from his mission. Which brings me to another thought…

    TV5 has gone above & beyond in promoting David and Nandito Ako. The Filipino fans have also done a super job in supporting David and treating him like the Star he is. I’m amazed but not surprised at the depth of their love & admiration for David. Because of all the media promotion and their support, David has risen to another level, not only personally but professionally as well. My concern and question is, where can David go now on his Mission? Where in the world will he be able to ride a bike as if he were just another ordinary young Missionary? In fact, I believe David is surprised at the positive response he has received doing Nandito Ako. He may not have counted on all the media attention he has received & will continue to receive especially as the series progresses. He is NOT Josh Bradley. He is David Archuleta, Singer, Song-writer, Author & Actor. He is a beloved International Artist and he must own it. I hope & pray he & the church officials will make whatever adjustments are needed to assure David’s well-being and safe return.

    (I swiped this from Fanscene who got it from comments in FOD… Thanks, guys!)

    TRAILER TRANSLATION, Thanks to Spidey in the FOD comments!

    3 hearts, 2 worlds, 1 song….

    From the network that continuously innovates Philippine primetime, comes the mini-series that everyone has been waiting for, not only in the Philippines but the whole world.

    Josh Bradley, he grew up abroad (The arrival into the country of Intenational superstar Josh Bradley was an unexpected surprise). But behind all the success he has achieved, there is a trace of sadness brought by a longing. (then grave scene starts)

    Holly Posadas, she comes from a wealthy family. But no amount of money can buy what she truly wants. (Aiko to Holly while locking her up in the room, “Get your act together.”) Holly says, while crying, “Is it wrong to ask if only I had a different mother?

    Anya Dionision, feisty and doesn’t back out on anything. But a secret from the past will test her strength. (Gelli slapping Anya, “Where did this money come from? Why do have so much money! [insert comment: I think in this scene Gelli thought Anya was secretly working as a prostitute.] Anya replies, “I got the money from tutoring.” Gelli fires back, “Tutoring?!?! Really?!?! Tutoring does not pay this much!!!

    These are the lives that destiny had once brought together. And now, their paths would cross again.

    Anya chasing after Josh in a bunny costume, “Hey you!!! Take off my by bunny costume!” As David removes the bunny costume Anya says, “Wait, isn’t it that you are…”

    Anya to David: “You understand Tagalog?” David say,”Oo” (means “yes”) and Anya ask, “And you also speak Tagalog?” David replies “Konti” (meaning “a little”).

    Because of trying to find who he really is (fan screaming – You’re mom is still alive! You’re mom is still alive!) David now talkling to his uncle.

    Because of trying to find for renewed hope. (Car scene where Josh almost hits Anya). Josh Bradley! You’re the one who stole my costume! Holly comes in, “Hey Anya, it’s good that I was still able to catch you! (then she sees Josh). Hey, Josh! (looks surprised) What are you doing here?!?!? I need your help Holly. I need to find my mom!

    Anya to David: “Didn’t I tell you not to come out! Holly’s gonna kill me if she finds out something happened to you!

    Fight scene. David punches a guy and the guy hit him back with a boat paddle. (That explains the bandage).

    Anya to Josh: “Holly loves you”.

    Holly to Josh: “I just have a question for you.”

    Nandito Ako. With the exceptional direction of Mac Alejandre and with the lead writing of Renato Custodio, comes together an outstanding ensemble of the best Philippine actors… (names of cast members follow… Gelli de Belen, Aiko Melendez… then G-Tongi.) G-Tongi says to David, “When they took you away from me, my world fell apart.”

    And introducing TV 5’s princesses Eula Caballero. Eula crying, “I don’t even remember the last she last hugged me. I don’t even remember the last time she said I love you to me.”

    And Jasmine CurtisSmith. “You’re very selfish! You don’t care about other people. You just follow what you want! You don’t know how to listen!!!”

    And for the first time on Philippine television, the International idol who’s gonna touch the heart of the whole nation, David Archuleta…. [Insert: he’s speaking in English, so no need translation]

    In this month of hearts, here comes the miniseries that will make you smile, cry and love. Nandito Ako.

    That’s what I was trying to say in a previous post. U.S. must take off his blindfold off and look beyond.
    America has the best music industry, the best film industry, has everything, but still has not seen david.
    I am of those who think that david should succeed in his own country, then be recognized worldwide.
    The best kept secret (pop) has already been discovered by the Filipinos. I pray that the following findings, (about David) are made in America.
    David deserves recognition of his own country.

    Abrra, thank you, thank you, grazie, thank you very much, I would say in all languages​​, but only I can with mine.

    He took a quantum leap out of his comfort zone, but in a place where he feels unconditional love and acceptance. A place that gives him the best chance for success in his first true acting venture. I couldn’t ask for anything more. I loved it when he said, “this is exactly what I needed” at this time in his life.

    I too have had concerns from the time he made his announcement and agree that they are now magnified.

    Late to the party 😦 but I am here! Always will be. A big thank you to everyone and especially to Abrra for bringing all this wonderfulness here for those of us who missed all the live action. Am catching up now! Oh my…oh my!

    It seems David did think of all of us-about what to leave for us before he leaves on his mission. So much for us to live on for the next 2 years. And still more to come. Thank you, David. But yes, I think we do need to say a prayer for him. He’s been working SO hard. Take care dear David.


  194. tawna21 said

    Abrra, I have to ditto what Blueberry Slush(Ice)LOL said—> ” Can I say you are the best! Missed all the fun last nite so a huge thank you for capturing these special moments … wish I could give you a big hug! ”

    What can I say… sooo much love in these videos. Yes, I sat thru the whole 1 hour, non-English one also, just to see and hear David and to witness the love from the rest of the cast for him. I’m just overwhelmed, speechless, and teary eyed. ♥

    SF #189…AMEN to absolutely everything you have said ♥

    Gladys ♥♥ we need you over here in the US as a spokesperson for David. 🙂

    Hello Everyone! I’ve been checking in…I think that word may be lurking…but haven’t taken the time to say hello. My workplace recently relocated to a near by city, and I’ve had to work tons of extra hours…so far behind on work, house work, art work, David news….I’ll catch up eventually! Love all of you guys in Archieworld!

    Who knew the young man could act? Real tears, fighting, two-armed hugs….wow. Catching up on the news through you guys!


  196. xaris said

    Oh Abrra, you really are our fairy godmother, aren’t you? Thank you!

    Judging by the trailer, I think David has delivered an amazing first effort. LOVE the bunny scene, and I can’t believe how realistic the fight scene is (Hey, I work in a high school–I’ve seen some good ones).

    I’m delighted David took this opportunity off the radar of US critics who should have no reason to review a show either not aired or not widely aired in the US. I’m afraid I don’t have much (okay, any) respect for most of the entertainment/music industry in this country who just recycle the same tired stuff year after year with no appreciation for true talent. As I said before, many, many kudos to TV5 and Sony Philippines for offering David this opportunity and then supporting and promoting him. I hope they paid him a king’s ransom. I hope they have already lined up a movie or another series when he returns. I hope Nandito Ako is such a HUGE success for everyone that entertainment and media people in the US suck eggs-LOL! (Sorry y’all, I can’t always be like David)

  223. joymus said

    Without a doubt – David is a damm ham lol!

    Abrra – there are not enough thank-yous in the world for all the coverage of David’s Manila experience. Your dedication is much appreciated. Thanks Again!

    I do not even know what to say. A newer, stronger, much more confident version of David has exploded into existence. He simply keeps growing hour by hour, day by day. I looked at the BTS outtakes with the acting workshop, he was all giggly and scooting back from close contact. Now, 3 weeks after you can find him casually and unscripted, placing his hands on the backs and waists of his costars. Especially Eula 😉
    As an aside – there is a weirdly cute thing she does with her knees. One is always more forward than the other 🙂

    I am in complete awe of his newly tapped talent in a new genre and will say once in as much as we think we know a lot about David talent-wise, it seems these past 4 years we have only scratched the surface.

    Wow … just … Wow at those videos. It’s a whole new David and he’s got me falling in love with his voice all over again. And his stage presence during these songs … I can’t even find the words. ♥ I don’t know what happened to him over there, but WOW!

    (Is it possible for someone to age about 3 years in just three weeks?)

    Ram, LOL I am a tennis ball, bouncing back and forth from one to the other. Gaahh Can’t get enough!

    And thank you to all for sharing and for bringing them here.

    And a special thanks for Ms. Abrra for her hard work. Chat, combined with some awesome videos, was great last night. 🙂


  234. silverfox said


    (Is it possible for someone to age about 3 years in just three weeks?)

    YES! David has the uncanny ability to learn, absorb & master new things & ideas for his craft in a matter of weeks or months what takes other artists years.

    So many fans are hoping David returns to Asia after his mission to pick up where he left off. Me? I am hoping the eyes, ears & mind have been opened by a VIP in the entertainment industry right here in the USA. Someone with the vision to see all that David has done starting with the MOTAB Concerts, to his MKOC tour and to the last month in Manila and will use that vision to give David his due the same way they have done in Manila & all of Asia. Someone who can see all that David has to offer as an artist. To have the vision to offer projects that only David could make seem easy & can pull off. To see David not only for his talent but for his work ethic and for always being completely professional.

    We all know David can dance. How could he not? He is Latino after all. So I can see David perfecting his dancing skills next and perhaps someday star in a remake of say…
    West Side Story or Grease with some subtle re-writes. He has shown he is willing to step out…wayyy out of his comfort zone with Nandito Ako and I believe when he returns from his mission, he will be ready to rise to new heights and proceed to blow away the entertainment industry!

    My hope is that the momentum from his performances in his MKOC and Nandito Ako will not diminish and that his time away will fly as quickly as the live performances I’ve been privileged to attend. I have always excitedly anticipate his live performances just to think at the end that they were just not long enough and end way too quickly leaving this audiences wanting more & more.

    Better yet, David WAIT, WAIT, DON’T GO!

  236. Abrra said

    HQ NA That is all you need to know 🙂




  237. joymus said

    As much as I love David’s own songs, these beautifully constructed pair of love songs fits his voice like a glove. In addition he even “davidized” them to the point that you would never know other artists first sang them. Its no wonder he re-recorded NA with “more heart”.

    I believe this new ease/glide/swagger in his singing demeanor which we first glimpsed with AI Finale Apologize, has come about as a nice side benefit from the acting.

    Per SF’s point – I can only hope upon his return he will maintain this standard of comfort and extend these new ventures.


  238. silverfox said

    David’s vocals on that HQ video of Nandito Ako are perfection and so sublime. I love the way he looked back at the cast showing his appreciation & sincere affection for them. David is truly a class act.

    David, always a class act who is loved & admired beyond measure by his fans everywhere. There is no one in the world like David Archuleta. He’s one of a kind.

    It’s almost 8AM Monday morning where David is. Nothing scheduled today I think, so maybe David can rest or take in some site-seeing. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if he does something humanitarian, ninja-like as he’s been known to do.


  239. silverfox said

    Actually, it’s 9 AM Monday morning where David is. 😆

    Hello all!!!! I missed chat and so many things!!! Sleep deprivation finally caught up to me lol When I fell asleep sitting up in front of my laptap ready to jump into chat hubby said you need to sleep! He was right I slept (with David talking to me on my dpod lol) for hours!!! Trying to get caught up!

    Nice to see you SF and ditto on everything you’ve said. Hoping the US is paying attention and when David comes back he’ll be ready even though he looks pretty ready to me 🙂

    Ram, dynamite? Need to put that first on my list.

    Joymus, Love David’s songs but what he’s done with Nandito Ako is incredible and in a complete foreign language to him.

    Brought this over from MJ’s comments. Love it!

    Joanne Banaga, one of the mini-serye’s supervising producers, said:

    David had a grueling itinerary that involved taping on weekdays and
    doing promotions on weekends. Yet through it all, “He wasn’t difficult
    to work it. You call him at this hour or you tell him not to wrap up
    yet, and even if he’s sleepy, he just sings or jogs to wake himself up. The
    only challenge that came up while working with him is that you invest
    in an emotion and you get to like him. He’s like a son to you. You get
    attached to him. Sobra. He’s so humble that he’s not comfortable when
    you try to praise him.”

When we sang I got chocked up and when he gave the sermon I listened for any hint at how to understand better some things that I don’t understand.

    I appreciate your comments SF and so pleased to have them to read right now. His magnificence is so striking. It is nice to see comments from old familiar faces!

    MANILA, Philippines – He dressed so simply, moved so quietly, that fans nearly missed singer-songwriter and TV5 contract star David Archuleta when he left for Singapore early morning Sunday to take a quick break and meet his legion of fans in the Lion City.

    His departure from NAIA Terminal 1 surprised passengers and some airport personnel who barely recognized the American Idol sensation as he arrived in a casual getup of jeans and green-and-black-striped round-neck T-shirt.

    The 21-year-old star, who had been busy the past days taping for the TV5 miniseries “Nandito Ako”, and recording the theme song, checked in at the Singapore Airline business counter with his road manager and two Filipino assistants.

    His Filipino road manager politely declined requests for photo ops and interviews with the young singer, who was looking tired after having only a few hours of sleep and an early morning airport call.

    Only a handful of airport observers recognize the teen star, and after passing through the immigration formalities, he then excused himself and proceeded to the airport VIP departure lounge to freshen up.

    By the time news broke of his impending departure, airport fans missed him entering the restricted Singapore Airlines lounge prior to his boarding the flight to Singapore.

    But the singer, who wowed local fans with his flawless rendition of “Nandito Ako” in unaccented Tagalog, had a different tune: “I will be back” were the last words he uttered to security personnel manning the final security check prior to his boarding the flight.

    VIDEO: David Archuleta sings his full version of ‘Nandito Ako’, live at the launch of his TV5 teleserye
    Archuleta, who had three Manila visits prior to this one – the last of which was in July 2011 for a solo concert – had earlier signed up with the Kapatid Network to do a 3-week mini-series with local teen stars Eula Caballero and Jasmine Curtis.

    Earlier, he met celebrity couple Regine Velasquez and singer Ogie Alcasid in a recording studio for the final recording session for his miniseries’ title song, “Nandito Ako (I Am Here)”, which was originally popularized by Alcasid.

    Aminado si David Archuleta na nangangamba siya sa maaaring mangyari sa kanyang career matapos niyang magdesisyon na iwan pansamantala ang pag-awit.

    Dalawang taon magsasagawa ng religious mission si David para sa Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, kung saan siya’y miyembro.

    Nakapanayam ng (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at ilang entertainment press si David kagabi, Pebrero 4, sa press launch ng Nandito Ako na ginanap sa Meralco Fitness Center Multi-Purpose Hall, Meralco Compound, Pasig City.

    May takot man, matagal daw itong pinag-isipan ni David bago nagdesisyon na isantabi ang kanyang career para sa kanyang religious mission.

    “It’s always a scary thing because you don’t know what’s gonna happen,” banggit ng batang mang-aawit.

    “It’s a decision, it’s like American Idol. It’s not the same degree in the people’s eyes.

    “I don’t know what’s gonna happen.

    “I’m in a job that I love, it’s hard to find a job.

    “I just found a job and it’s hard to let go, school, and the comfort of home.

    “It has been a hard decision to make, it was a decision that took a couple of years to make…

    “But, it’s scary, it’s a scary thing to do but I know it’s gonna be worth it because I’ve learned to trust that feeling in my life…”

    Gayunman, ayon sa artikulong lumabas dito sa PEP noong Enero 14, sinabi ni David na magre-record muna siya ng isang album pagbalik niya sa Amerika.

    Gusto niyang may maiwan sa kanyang fans habang nasa isang religious mission siya.

    “I am hoping the eyes, ears & mind have been opened by a VIP in the entertainment industry right here in the USA. Someone with the vision to see all that David has done starting with the MOTAB Concerts, to his MKOC tour and to the last month in Manila and will use that vision to give David his due the same way they have done in Manila & all of Asia”.


    My thoughts exactly. Much as I love having David in Asia, I fervently hope that he would one day make it really big in the US. That is where he needs to shine. The rest of the world would follow.

    Nandito Ako is fun and a great first foray into acting. But with all due respect to David and the team, no sequel please. There should be no going back, only forwards to bigger projects that would allow him to hone his acting skills and realize his full potential as in that field.

    If I heard the interviews correctly, he did say acting projectS – plural. So I hope someone in Hollywood is already in talks with him.

    I look forward to the day when we can all say that’s David Archuleta, winner of Oscars, Grammys and Emmys; we knew he could do this from the moment we set eyes on him on American Idol.

    (Those links-articles I saw first on Arculeta Fanscene: thanks for the links, Janey!!)


  249. Abrra said

    You are one wise lady 🙂 I agree, no more soaps LOL David is more than capable to excel on larger projects.

    Thank you for posting the article links. It makes me smile to know David had a somewhat peaceful departure at the airport.


    Reading that comment “The
    only challenge that came up while working with him is that you invest
    in an emotion and you get to like him. He’s like a son to you. You get
    attached to him. ”

    Attached is the perfect word.

    Abrra the zombie in need of more sleep


  250. Hello folks of TheVoice!

    Did you like the adaptation we made on Nandito Ako? By how David was moved, I think he really liked it so the AP guys are beaming w/ glee, LOL. Oh yeah we made DA cry, woo-hoo! We’re such sadists, LOL

    Seriously, love how Kia adapted the lyrics of the song. I will also pen a proper (read not technical/computer-generated) lyrics for the original Nandito Ako song later.

    Meanwhile I am still at it – uploading videos. Omyjosh, this is really an adventure. Extremely tiring but completely fulfilling.

    Will soon share BTS stories. ABANGAN – anyone knows what that means by now? 🙂


  251. Fenfan – re the sequel: you will be glad. And that’s all I can say about it… for now…


  252. stenocruiser said

    JR – 250 — Means we just have to “wait”?
    I’m sure it will be worth it to hear all the tidbits and such. Thanks JR!


  253. Hi Abrra, my dear co-zombie

    sent you an email 🙂


  254. Abrra said


    No mail yet! I hope its what I wished for 🙂



  255. Steno – Wait is ok. But I think the english equivalent that showbix people use is “Watch out for it!” 🙂


  256. bebereader said

    The adaptation was beautiful. I play that part of the video repeatedly just to see how moved David was, moved to tears. You and your team did well! And we’re ready for BTS stories, whenever you are. 🙂

    No problema. Please don’t ever hesitate about posting something about David here. I’m already loving “WYA”. Thanks for sharing with us! 🙂

    “(Is it possible for someone to age about 3 years in just three weeks?)”
    He thrives when he’s in The Philippines. He’s like a plant with nutritious soil for the plant’s best potential. But his attitude has a lot to do with it, too. It’s like he’s embraced being 21 and is eager to take on new experiences. Instead of finding fault with things that others would, he looks at life as a series of challenges and finds the good in everything.

    Silverfox #234
    West Side Story…Grease! I’ve thought about that too. Can you imagine David as Danny Zuko? *thud* He can absolutely do it.

    hahahahaha you make me laugh. We had pizza and chicken wings for dinner tonight too! WTG! Giants on winning the SuperBowl!

    I wasn’t going to but stayed up late again last night for the Singapore signings. David is running me ragged. LOL I came in on the Ustream when he was almost finished signing. After he finished he got up from his seat and there were a crowd of fans waiting for him outside the store. All held up cameras so as not to forget the moment. They had time for a few questions and the first comment had to do with David’s mission and how he will keep in touch with his fans. That’s what fans in any location have on their minds. After he answered several questions, all the fans wanted was to hear him sing. He wanted to please them and asked what they wanted to hear. He sang “Wait” and “SBL”. A capella. Off the cuff. Glorious.

    It all comes back to his voice, doesn’t it? There’s something so magical about it. The notes he reaches make you feel good. It’s as simple as that. I still don’t know how it’s possible. I’ve heard nice voices before but there is something about the quality of Davids’ voice whether singing or speaking that soothes, calms and keeps you wanting more. In fact, once it grabs you, it sucks you in and it leaves you with no choice but to crave it, forever.


  257. Nope it is not what you wish for — yet. But I will make sure it will come true. Of late I have been in the fun business of making dreams and wishes come true, tee-hee


  258. emmegirl said

    joymus, “As much as I love David’s own songs, these beautifully constructed pair of love songs fits his voice like a glove. In addition he even “davidized” them to the point that you would never know other artists first sang them.”….
    it’s like he sprinkles them with David dust and they become magical.

    HD Nandito Ako, love when you can see the closeup of him on the big screen to the left.


  259. krbdavid1 said

    Thank you Abra for the video @ 236. I cannot stop watching. I am in love with his voice. This video is worth watching in full screen, escpecially around 1:38;)


  260. kaycee said

    I know I’m terribly behind, but I finally found time to watch the whole Q&A TV5 Presscon. David did such a wonderful job answering the questions, and was so gracious and well-spoken. He’s becoming a real pro. It was fun to see him so excited about acting and interested in future opportunities. Some of my favorite (and very telling) comments:

    “It was exactly what I needed.”

    “One of the best experiences I’ve ever had.”

    “I can’t wait to keep growing and improving with it.”

    Thanks to everyone for keeping us updated and “in the know” these past few weeks!

    It was nice to meet you in chat last night. I hope you come to Unplugged often! It is there for all 24/7. David will sing to you anytime you want.Thank you for commenting. We love to see new faces 🙂

    PS I watched 2:36 Ohhh my! Also see 1:43-1:50 . He turns to sing to the row of ladies. Their reaction was like a tidal wave, no wait, a tsunami has washed over them.



  262. emmegirl said

    JR, can’t wait! Hope to be hearing EVERYTHING soon!
    What about that sequel????

    Thanks so much for your dedication and hard work and everything everyone else there is doing to keep us satiated. 🙂


  263. Here is aired version of Nandito Ako from Talentadong Pinoy

    admin edit Abrra The video was removed by the owner due to copyright permissions

    Gah-some close-ups!

    Have my own recording during the taping — we were just a few feet away. I talked to one of the camera men and asked if he will have closeups for the aired version and he said yes so I decided to have the whole body shoot.


  264. Here’s my recording of Nandito Ako @ Talentadong Pinoy

    admin edit Abrra The video was removed by the owner due to copyright permissions

    He looked SOOOO good – and that was after a grueling day.

    Dunno how he does it (shakes head..)


  265. angelofdja said

    Hmmmm, I was out in Youtube land and found this. David’s music is on this list, not any of his typically played songs either. Very interesting around the 8 minute mark…


  266. Abrra said

    It seems that ABC Development Corp has shut down several videos from the week’s events. I don’t have time this morning to remove the blank videos before going to work. Sorry for the fans 😦 My own YouTube channel has been threatened with being banned.



  267. betsy said

    Hey everyone! It’s almost time for our annual wake up call from David! IHOP National Pancake Day is almost upon us.
    Go here to sign up. 🙂

    p.s. That was so much fun the last time!


  268. krbdavid1 said

    Abbra, Thanks for the welcome, I enjoy reading your site. I did notice in the video it Kinda looks like he turns to look at one certain somebody, ha ha, and the guy behind her notices it to cuz he nudges her. Of course that could be my over imagination. I tend to do that at times.


  269. betsy said

    This is a must see (with a surprise at the end, so fast forward through the dark part)


  270. SandyBeaches said

    Krbdavid1…I watched him as he turned to sing and when he had finished they clapped, all but one…but dang we can’t even go and check that out. But it was Jasmine I believe, then she came forward with the others. He definately did have the closest physical connection with her I believe but each to his /her own ideas on that! Anyway one looks at it, it was quite fine. Take all of the memories with you David and you will need quite a few to cover the time away. To me all of this leading up to his departure is like a very highly unusual dream, but the dream sequence is not over yet.



  271. angelofdja said

    Regarding video at comment #265…Look Around is song number 96 at the 1:06 mark. At the 8 minute mark there is a song called Jump that is advertised as one of David’s, it comes in right after Save The Day. I was just wondering if anyone else knew about that song, and is it your opinion that it is a David song?


  272. Skydancer1x said

    267. Betsy, thanks for the reminder of our wake up call! I just signed up:)) good way to begin the week.I remember how much fun it was to get that call last year♥ woo hoo!

    By all the tweets, looks like the cast of Nandito Ako all miss David immensely, and the feeling is mutual from both David, and Kari♥

    This has been an amazing 3 weeks….but I am ready for David to come back ♥home♥


  273. Abrra said

    I don’t think there is too much to consider in that video. To me it seems like something made up by a person who thought they had a ” clever” idea. Save the Day is David’s voice. But if you notice when “Jump” comes on, they used his CD cover again. No such song to my knowledge, nor does it sound like David. I don’t have access to hear it from work but I think there was auto tune effects. We all know he doesn’t like that. It’s a hack job in my opinion. Many try to get hits to their videos by using famous artists material, yet they are usually promoting some cover they did. I suspect that Jump is sneaked in there for some reason like that.

    Abrra I blame all errors on my iPhone


  274. Skydancer1x said

    BETSY! what was the surprise?? they have edited the video it seems. What happened??


  275. fenfan said

    #251 Thanks JR, I am relieved to hear that. Looking forward to hearing the BTS stories from you.
    And thank you so much for all you do to keep us fed with all things David.


  276. angelofdja said

    Thanks ” Abrra. I didn’t know what to think about it. “They” shouldn’t mess with David. Or his VOICE! Dang-nabit! 😉


  277. betsy said

    Sky, when I saw it, they had an outtake of David saying his line and flubbing it a bit and him laughing and asking if he could do it over. 🙂


  278. emmegirl said

    I must have an active imagination too (lol) cause I noticed the subtleties mentioned and a few more. There was a lot of emotions going on with everyone in the cast during that performance of NA.


  279. Skydancer1x said

    Thanks Betsy, dang wish I had seen it, I love outtakes..haha


  280. emmegirl said

    And I am back in the NA vortex, watching him in that HQ vid with the occasional peeks at him on the big screen – look at that face.


  281. bluebar said

    David dressed in the bunny suit for Nandito Ako reminds me of the time he was photographed sitting all wrapped up in a snuggly blanket on the set of AI. He looked cute as a bunny then – all warm and fuzzy!! And dreaming? Of rabbits? We do know his dreams come true.

    Wonder if a stunt double was used to film the actual falling-down part of the rabbit scene? Can’t mess with David’s “hare!”


  282. Skydancer1x said

    LOL Emmegirl,
    Jasmine has said, in an written interview, she has a “crush” on David, and that he would be an “ideal” boyfriend♥
    How true dat! He’s an ideal “everything and more”!
    They seem to be ‘respectfully’ fond of each other…hmm
    to be continued…..?


  283. djafan said

    David went on a night safari and loved it!

    David Archuleta @DavidArchie

    Fun day in Singapore with interviews, singing, and then ending with the Night Safari! Man, I loved that. Excited for tomorrow!

    Please leave comments here!

    Great video of Nandito Ako and interview from the talent show!!


  284. Skydancer1x said

    Bluebar! ” Can’t mess with David’s “hare!”
    ” ROFL!
    I love the look on his face,the aha! moment…flashing that killer side grin,eeeeek when Josh sees the bunny suit as his perfect disguise. so fun!


  285. Abrra said

    Thanks for that link to the HQ video. Not to worry, I will be on it like a duck on a junebug!! Mp3 later when I get home. I think this video has the best audio so far. I’ll be sure to post the best.

    Abrra I blame all errors on my iPhone


  286. djafan said

    Wait is also up on ChannelV. Vote for it! Need to create sign on but very easy!


  287. emmegirl said

    So many of the videos are no longer available 😦

    283, you can see the pure love in his eyes.

    The HQ Nandito Ako 236 and 283 are killing me – you can really see the emotion in his eyes and hear it in his voice. Having a little difficulty getting though them.*sniff*


  288. Abrra said

    David tweeted last night

    @DavidArchie Hey SG fans, join me on StarHub Entertainment on Facebook for a video chat tomorrow, 12 Noon at Hope to see you there!

    I am not sure we can see it from the US .It says

    “Please note:

    This event is only open to Singapore and Malaysia fans of StarHub Entertainment facebook page. ”

    I went to the link and had to register. Hoping it will be viewable in US. If I do get to see it, I will announce it here.

    Singapore is 13 hours ahead of Eastern time. It should start about 1 am EST.

    really disappointed ‘they’ pulled so many videos.
    my sweet neighbor Millie was over to see all the vids from Phillipines a while ago, and it was too little too late.:( Did manage to get a few up for her, so thanks♥
    gee, why did they have to do that ,boo hoo:(

    289. Abrra thanks…screamcaps…..gaaaaaah! hes gorgeous.


  293. Skydancer1x said

    oops, Philippines (shame on my spelling)


  294. Dayzee said

    Abrra, could that be 11 pm EST?


  295. Abrra said

    According to my time zone its 13 hours diff. Let me know if you can explain it another way. I am open to interpretation 😉

    its 8:04 pm est right now and the chart says 9:04 in Singapore



  296. poof said

    Thank you Abrra for all your efforts. What a wonderful smorgasbord of performances, appearances, pictures and tweets.

    The Nandito Ako performance at the Talentadong Pinoy just boggled my puny little mind. (283) He was so classy, gorgeous and poised, and that was just looking at him! I think every aspect of this performance is just one of his best ever. The TV5 tape added to it too, the camera work, quieting down the screaming and the great shots of the audience. That look on their faces is certainly universal; pure delight!

    I don’t know how he is keeping up with all he is doing, but I sure am enjoying it!


  297. emmegirl said

    Poof, it’s on replay, on my computer and in my head.
    You said it perfectly – classy, gorgeous and poised.
    Filipino Contigo.

    (look at the faces – I love how they love him. the little gal at around 1:37, lower left hand, she can’t take it)
