    I brought this over from minutes before…

    In looking up the translation for the quote on the bracelet, there were different versions…One was …”You have become a part of my soul” and another would say…”You have become a part of my heart”! Then he confirms it himself…”A part of my heart is always with them”… So coool…All starting from the beloved song ‘Contigo En La Distancia’…

    Wow, it felt like a connection even if just imaginary.

    good morning everyone
    I was lying in bed this morning, thinking about the challenges awaiting me in the bathroom (I am dealing with a couple broken elbows,a sprained wrist and a split pea colored face 🙂 ) I was thinking of your kind words about my positive attitude about it all. It hadn’t occured to me that I had a positive attitude,,, ya’ just got to get through it the best you can,,, right? Because I still didn’t want to get out of bed and face that bathroom, I chose to “think about” things instead.

    What came to mind was a poem that I heard every day of my childhood on the radio. It ended a live music program that my family listened to at lunch time. We always had the radio on to some type of music. I remembered every word of that poem, though I hadn’t thought of it in years.

    Look well to this day,
    For it is life.
    The very life of life.
    For in it’s brief course lies
    all the verities and realities of your existence.
    The bliss of growth
    The glory of action
    The splendor of beauty.

    For yesterday is but a dream,
    and tomorrow is only a vision,
    But today, well lived,
    makes every yesterday
    a dream of happiness
    and every tomorrow
    a vision of hope.

    Look well, therefore, to this day.

    This morning, (after spending some quality time in the bathroom) I looked up this poem. It was written in the fourth century by the famous sanskrit writer Kalidasa. Amazing. I think this poem helped shape my attitudes as a child. I wanted to share it with all of you as we live our lives, especially in the next couple years.

    C caring

  53. MT said

    Poof, Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    I like the poem, wonderful words to live by. I wonder if David has ever read that one. It sounds a little like something he tweeted a while back about yesterday being gone, tomorrow isn’t here, what we have is today. (paraphrasing, can’t remember the exact words.)

    You could almost finish that poem this way …

    Look well, therefore, to this day. BEGIN.

    Hmmm The title of his new album fits very nicely there.

    D – Deliberate

    I think David is very deliberate in almost all that he does. Could this be close to the theme of his new album? Learn from yesterday, hope for tomorrow, and live today to the fullest and do the best that you can? Just a random thought.

David was going through a rough time and it hurts now that I realize it. This realization helps me tremendously with the missing him and not only understanding but being happy for David. That picture up top is balm for my heart.

    55 Dja, I know exactly what you mean. So many messages. When you think about it, the messages have been coming since the very first time we saw him on Idol.Aside from the songs he chose, the way he conducted himself at any given moment spoke volumes. Our fresh faced,adorable,polite,sweet,courteous,respectful,and innocent young man we fell in love with was showing us what ‘classy’ was all about. The songs on TOSOD, do speak to a difficult transition in his life don’t they? You are so right…I will forever treasure that album, and I hope he is dayumm proud of it, it’s an exceptional piece of work.

    Sky,

    When David was interviewed during the release of TOSOD and asked about his favorite song he never gave a favorite but he mentioned The Other Side Of Down as a special one to him. I read these lyrics now and tear up just thinking about what was happening. It’s an uplifting song but because its talking about being down and trying to get up. The entire album is like this except for Falling Stars.

    The Other Side Of Down.

    Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, (Down, Down)

    Here I am with all these questions hanging from my ceiling low
    One by one they all keep telling me I told you so
    Everywhere I turn I see red lights flashing over my head
    Oh no, oh no, oh no
    Mm-mm
    In a whirl-wind spinning,
    yeah somehow it knocked me off my feet
    But I know better than to let it get the best of me,
    I could give up, I could stay stuck, I could move on
    So I put one foot front of the other,
    No, no, no, nothing’s gonna break my stride,
    I keep climbing,
    gonna keep fighting until I make it to the other side of down-own Down-own, Down-whoa-oh-ow-own
    (Down, Down, Down-ah-own)
    In the sky, I’m standing under all I see is endless rain
    I think I spot a silver lining hiding in the gray
    I might get tossed around,
    but I’m always bouncing back
    Oh, oh, oh I could give up, I could stay stuck, or I could move on,
    So I put one foot front of the other,
    No, no, no, nothing’s gonna break my stride,
    I keep climbing,
    gonna keep fighting until I make it to the other side of down-own
    Down-own, Down-whoa-ah-ow-own Down-own, Down-own, Down-whoa-ah-ow-own
    On the other side of down
    It keeps calling me
    Where I wanna be
    On the other side of down It keeps calling me
    Where I wanna be Where I wanna be
    Ohhh, I put one foot front of the other,
    No, no, no, nothing’s gonna break my stride,
    I keep climbing,
    gonna keep fighting until I make it to the other side of down-own
    Down-own, Down-whoa-ah-ow-own Down-own, Down-own, Down-whoa-ah-ow-own

    Djafan, TOSOD is my favorite song from that album. I always felt an under current of sadness that comes through. IMO, it’s that sadness that makes the song interesting. Let’s face it, David can sing anything, he’s just that talented, but only singing happy songs, would be a waste. I believe he has more emotions to convey through his music that is yet to be tapped.

    David Archuleta’s Masterclass Performance Of You Are My Song
    May 10, 2012 by Masterclass Lady

    “You know a singer is doing something right when he can melt away all the stress and fatigue of the day, transporting you to another world of absolute bliss and harmony.

    And no one does this better than David Archuleta. He has such a gift – a beautiful charismatic voice and presence that draws you in to every word he is singing.

    In this music video, featured above, David performs a song titled “You Are My Song” from his OPM album, “Forevermore”.

    It is an absolutely exquisite vocal performance, highlighting the dimension and scope of David’s range. His vocals are pure and translucent, emanating straight from his heart to yours.

    His ability to craft and stretch his phrases is testament to his enormous skill set as a vocalist. Listen to the manner in which he holds the note on the word “song” at the 1:35 mark – centering the head voice and then gently increasing the diaphragmatic momentum to crescendo on the note, followed by a decrescendo.

    This is called messa di voce and very difficult for singers to master. Yet, he makes it sound so easy.

    Thank you to Janey for sending this song my way.

    This song and the entire album in fact is available at DavidArchuleta.Com and Amazon.Com.”

    M – also stands for Masterclass performer. That’s our David. ♥

    Oh, Skyyy … another random thought for you. LOL

    I am wondering if David’s album is going to have an official release. Because if it does, don’t they usually release the lead single about a month or so before? Hmmm…. wonder if we’ll hear a song, maybe called BEGIN, in about two months instead of 3? Yep, just another random thought.

In the beginning of idol last night they showed previous hometown visits (not just winners) and unless I missed it I did not see David. Funny because the only former idol who trended about a hometown visit in the past was David. I still think David will be in the top 10 moneymakers this year of past idol contestants even though he was only here 4 months!

    Abrra, That vlog is epic David. I can’t unsmile now lol.

    I haven’t watched Cook’s performance but the reviews are pretty mixed. The reports are very interesting for the winner and runner up. I’ve read the record deal is for 2 albums with the labels option for a third. It seems that label didn’t want a third. Whereas David’s label wanted a third and more since they made offers he turned down.

    David’s twitter followers keep increasing > 1,026,382 in comparison to Cook 265,143

    It’s all very interesting to me being a numbers person. David definitely has nurtured a relationship with his fans, this isn’t normal haha.

    From CarterMatt.com

    ‘American Idol’ notes: David Cook, David Archuleta, and Carrie Underwood

    David’s on his own.

    For the Friday morning edition of “American Idol” notes we are going to be kicking things off by talking about both the winner and the runner-up from season 7.

    Cook moves on without RCA – After some great speculation for the past few months, David Cook finally confirmed following the results show performance Thursday night that he has separated from his label following some weak sales of his second album “This Loud Morning.”

    Specifically, Cook told The Hollywood Reporter that he actually was ready for a bit of a change:

    “It just felt like the time to try something different … I love the creative control, so we’re going to self-release and see what happens from there.”

    For now, Cook is releasing “The Last Song I’ll Write For You” independently to test the waters, and will figure out where he wants to go musically from there.

    David Archuleta’s Twitter milestone – We don’t get many opportunities to hear from David during his Mormon mission, but on Wednesday he did choose to relay a message to his fans to express his gratitude when it comes to reaching the million-follower milestone.

    In a new post on Twitter, here is what Cook’s fellow season 7 alum had to say courtesy of his team (who are managing his account while he is away):

    “No way! That is amazing that it got to 1 million even while I am away! Please tell the fans that I am loving it here and having some really wonderful experiences, and that I can´t thank them enough for the support that they´ve shown even while I´m away! A part of my heart is always with them.”

    Archuleta will have a new album coming out later this year, and the plan is for the team to continually provide some updates along with music to keep people invested in his career in the coming months.

    David Archuleta’s New Album Out In August

    David Archuleta is set to release some new music in August. It might be a bit confusing on the logistic side of things since David’s last big announcement had to do with his 2-year break of sorts from the music industry – due to his mission trip out of the country. That being said, he must have prepped for the trip so that fans wouldn’t be left without a new album. Thanks to the musician’s official website, we know that the album is titled Begin and it will hit the States on August 7. Believe it or not, this will be DA’s fifth solo album and it will feature original tracks and cover songs. Of course, the website does leave us all hanging a bit because that’s all of the details dished. Alright so let us know if you’re looking forward to this new music from David Archuleta, and for more music updates, keep it here at ClevverTV. I’m Dana Ward, bye for now!

    It just ok for me, but then I am not one who buys his music. Breaking away from RCA should have been months ago when his sales were poor .Whatever the promotion was that he got in support, wasn’t enough to keep him on the radio. This new song is “different” from his hard rocker style of music. He seems to be stretching his wings now that he has the freedom. I hope he has better success on his own.

    Photobucket

    David was smart to expand his horizons with a book deal, acting, and product endorsements. It shows more his depth as a performer. Another thing I like is that David doesn’t live behind an instrument on stage. He stands there alone in the spotlight and sings his heart out 🙂 I’d be sad if I had to watch him behind a guitar for every song.

It was while we were in Singapore we started giving the list of songs to Ivory for clearance. Only really on the way to the studio in the van was when he looked over the words and listen to the track for the songs he was recording on that day.

    Runner-up in the 7th season of American Idol, singer, songwriter, author: these are just a few of his titles. David Archuleta (age 19), has accomplished more than most teenagers can even dream of accomplishing. Gordon talks to this successful teen about his new book, his Mormon faith, and the possibility of him doing mission works via his music

    Regarding David playing guitar…
    Truly, a singer of David’s caliber doesn’t need to play an instrument to accompany his singing. His voice is his instrument. But I wouldn’t mind seeing him play guitar just once. 😉

    MT,

    Thanks for the link to the blog in #93. My favorite part was this:

    “David’s diction and pronunciation of Filipino words are close to seamless, given that he doesn’t even have a drop of Filipino blood. And the voice- Holy Cow that voice! So angelic, soothing, and simply puts you to sleep like a baby being rocked to a calming lullaby. ”

    Ain’t that the truth.
    And this from someone who wasn’t really a fan.
    As Angelica always says, Resistance is futile.
