David Archuleta ~ Chords of Strength for Rising Star Outreach

Posted by voiceadmin on Wednesday, May 23, 2012

SINGING SENSATION AND AMERICAN IDOL FAVORITE,

DAVID ARCHULETA

TELLS HIS INSPIRING PERSONAL STORY

How many of you remember those words….the first words you probably read on the inside of the jacket of David’s N.Y. Times Bestseller… “CHORDS OF STRENGTH”?

As we opened to the introduction, we saw David’s first heartfelt words:

“I have no idea why I’m doing this, but I know I need to be doing it for some reason.” David Archuleta

The reason to me was loud and clear. No other person has ever inspired me the way David has. I have been around many years now, and have not ever felt the power of another person …as I have felt with David. His heart is full of wisdom, honesty and purity. To share his thoughts, experiences and dreams with fans and others…in a book…. was a beautiful gift. It felt as if he were chatting with us…. anywhere in our WORLD. The readers were treated to his strength of character  and inner spirit. We could even feel the warmth of his smile and see his glow as we turned the pages….even the ones without pictures.

The picture he painted for us…was real. David is real….and that is what we love about him. He definitely left a “heartprint” with us in this book….as he has done with every song he sings and how we watch him live his life.

His wonderful personality captured our attention …and we didn’t want to finish the book and have it all over.

Are you ready to read Chords of Strength for a second, third or maybe even fourth time? How about giving his great book to family and friends who are graduating from high school or college this year? It is a special book to give to people of all ages…for any reason…or just because it feels so good to introduce David to others. Let’s all create more buzz for David during this special time of Chords of Strength’s 2nd anniversary. I am sure there are many of David’s new followers who are not aware that he has written a book. Now is a great time to let them know.

To celebrate the anniversary of David’s bestseller, which is June 1st, one of David’s fans has created a special book pillow to put up for auction. Another fan has generously donated an autographed copy of Chords of Strength. The two of them will be auctioned together for two weeks prior to June 1st. The proceeds of this book pillow and book will be given to Rising Star Outreach (RSO).  http://www.risingstaroutreach.org/

David and his mother spent some time at this school in India during Jan. of 2011. They were there to help celebrate World Leprosy Day. They walked the Pathway of Hope that was built in part from bricks donated by many many fans.  They spent time with the children in the school, as well as helped the people who have been afflicted with leprosy. Many of David’s fans have continued to support RSO with sponsorships, bricks and other donations for their new school. This is one of the organizations that has been dear to David’s heart. They still need our help…so we are hoping that fans will help contribute with this auction…. keeping David’s caring spirit active while he is away.  Please pass the word around to others via twitter and help us help others.

You will not only be giving to others….you will have a chance to receive a one of a kind special remembrance to celebrate David’s NY Times bestseller….  “Chords of Strength”.

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************

DESCRIPTION:

It is a large pillow that is approx. 21 x 21 inches. David’s sillouette is the centerpiece of the pillow…bordered with piano keys and musical notes. The pillow is all black and white.

Attached are rawhide Chords (of strength) that will hold a book while you read it ….or just use it to decorate your home.

The back of the pillow is made of black denim, and has two pockets. (not shown in pictures)

Included with the pillow is David Archuleta’s …..NY Times Bestseller….”Chords of Strength.”

The proceeds from this auction will be given to Rising Star Outreach….whose main office in now located in Provo, Utah.

The donor of this pillow for auction wishes to remain anonymous.

    Which reminds me that I really want to read it again. I read it quickly when I received it because we were having a chat about it in TVU that night. For the second read I’d like to savor every word on every page.

    “I’d pay $100 for a picture of Angelica curled up and hugging a blue oval pillow 😉 Make it happen!”

    Make it happen indeed, for as it happens, a thought occurred to me this morning along those very same lines that I have been mulling over all day. Not the picture though. I have already posted pics of me as biker chick, red hat mama and in a swimsuit with boots. I think that’s more than enough, especially when we have a subject muuuch more photogenic than moi to look at. But I DO have a clever plan to raise the bidding for the auction to help RSO AND make it easy and affordable for everyone to participate. 🙂 Here then, is my cunning plan. Everyone on the site pools their resources and together we come up with enough money to buy the pillow. Only consider all the money we are saving this year on concert tix, VIP’s, hotels, dining, gas, car rentals and airfare! And it’s for SUCH a good cause. Once we obtain the pillow, all of you donate it to me as a gift. Isn’t it perfect?

    Taking back my earlier statement above, for that I would pose curled up with BOTH pillows wearing a swimsuit in boots and a red hat on top of the Hog.

Congrats to Pp on the win. Congrats to Jessica for joining the club of number 2’s. Not a bad place to be, right? Good luck to both of them.

    I just read a good article about “American Idol” and the WGWG (White Guy With Guitar) factor. David was mentioned so I’m attaching here.

    The issue with a WGWG winning year after year (starting with Cook, then Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty and now Phil Phillips) is that they’re chosen according to popularity, not talent. When that so called winner gets out into the real world and starts making music, can they sell records based on their popularity alone?

    ‘American Idol’: Why Phillip Phillips And The White Guy With Guitar Trend Are Bad For Business’

    Posted: 05/24/2012 8:47 am

    by TheLaura Prudom.

    Associate Television Editor, The Huffington Post

    “Last night, America crowned Phillip Phillips, the 21-year-old pawn shop worker from Georgia, as the latest “American Idol.”

    This should’ve come as a surprise to exactly no one, given that Phillip is now the fifth in an uninterrupted line of “White Guys With Guitars” who have snagged the coveted crown over the past few seasons. I was noting the bias towards “WGWG” way back in my recap of the Top 24 — although in those halcyon days, I was foolishly giving the edge to Colton, just because he was more conventionally attractive (and more annoying), even going so far as to note: “He’s white, male and can play an instrument, so he’ll probably win.” Close enough, right?

    Clearly, I was discounting the sympathy votes Phil-Phil would earn for his kidney problems, but I did note that he had one of the stand-out performances in the first live round. I’ve enjoyed a number of his renditions over the course of the competition, but I haven’t had a horse in this race since Elise Testone was eliminated, so I’ve been watching the season progress with an air of detached interest, wondering if Jessica might be the one to break the cycle. This show has always been a popularity contest more than a talent contest, with the attractive, marketable guys given an edge, even over superior voices. David Cook versus David Archuleta; Kris Allen versus Adam Lambert; Lee DeWyze versus Crystal Bowersox; Scotty McCreery versus Lauren Alaina, and now Phillip Phillips versus Jessica Sanchez; in most, if not all cases, the artists with superior range or technical ability lost out to an army of increasingly indistinguishable White Guys With Guitars, each (with the exception of country crooner Scotty McCreery) trading in the same inoffensive soft/alt-rock melodies that can easily get lost in an already crowded male marketplace.

    Why is this an issue, you may ask? Why not let the excitable teenage girls (and the older women who should probably know better) have their fun and flood the phone lines with votes for these attractive, guitar-plucking fellas? Simply put, because those attractive, guitar-plucking fellas don’t actually do that well once they’ve ventured out of “Idol’s” protective embrace and are expected to sell albums under their own steam — and that’s a problem for “Idol” as much as for the winners themselves.”

    Pocoelsy, I love watching David fan videos, thank you 🙂

    Betsy, David is so genuine interacting with those great kids. His compassion shows.

    Hey Breanne! Nice seeing you here 🙂 Thanks for the wise radio info.

    Bebe, I guess we like singers who can sing or in my case a singer who can sing the phone book! I was shocked they showed David.

    Potluck, David definitely is the attractive one 🙂

    I spent an hour trying to find David on my Tivo’d AI from last night. Finally found him. His face was there for such a short time, but by stopping it and going forward one step at a time I could make his blink last for two minutes. Super!! This stuff keeps me so busy I don’t know when I am going to do that laundry.

    Maybe its because I did watch this season, but by the end of AI. I was already tired of everyone’s “sound”Plain and simple, there just isn’t anyone else I really care about listening to anymore, but David.
    My other cd’s of other artists.. just sat around collecting dust, until I finally just packed them all away in a box, except for David’s. Why keep just dusting them off? I get everything I need from Davids music alone.Crazy.

    Sky, I made that pic from Chile you posted my desktop at work. Hijoles, that is a big swimming pool!

    Now I must confess for real and for all that my “cunning plan” was a joke. Betsy, does that phrase remind you of Little Women? I get it from the hilarious British sitcom, The Black Adder, featuring Lord Edmund Blackadder and his trusty squire Baldrick, who is always coming up with a cunning plan that usually fails miserably. Rowan Atkinson plays the Black Adder, Tony Robinson, Baldrick, and His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales is played by Hugh Laurie of “Bones” fame here in the US. Funniest British sitcom ever, and that is saying something. Here are a few lines from the series:

    Blackadder: “Baldrick, have you no idea what irony is?”
    Baldrick: “Yes, it’s like goldy and bronzy only it’s made out of iron.”

    Blackadder: “Mrs M, if we were the last three humans on earth, I would be trying to start a family with Baldrick.”

    Blackadder: “Let’s try again. If I have two beans and then I add two more beans, what does that make?”
    Baldrick: “Umm… a very small casserole?”

    Flashheart: “She’s got a tongue like an electric eel and she likes the taste of a man’s tonsils.”

    Prince George: “What can I do to a woman that I can’t do to you?”
    Blackadder: “I cannot conceive, sir.”

    Black Adder: “I have come up with a plan so cunning you could stick a tail on it and call it a weasel.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Of course, just because I was teasing about the other doesn’t mean I don’t have an actual plan for obtaining the pillow. As plans go, it is not QUITE so cunning but a lot more effective.

    Poof, sorry. Abracadabra, here is the comment. Karlox is in quotes. I often throw things in the trash. But only what I write, not others.

    “We may feel down when we equate success with being in the limelight, because truly David deserves to be in the limelight across the globe and right here in the USA. Nonetheless, we all know David doesn’t equate success with being in the limelight so ultimately, if David is content, we’re content.”

    This is one of the things I love most about him. He is so grounded in his own view of the world as something that can not seduce him into being what he is not. I feel confident that like you say about producers, he has been told, “Hey David, dress, act, walk and talk this or that way and it’ll put you in the limelight.” I am sure he has many, many times been offered the world on a silver platter if he would only adopt the ways of the world and be what the world wants him to be. I remember that song he sang once at the idol after party, that went, “If I could only be what this world wants me to be, would I finally be free and live in harmony?” He chooses his lyrics and songs carefully to convey messages. I think this song was his way of saying he knows the answer is a resounding no, and with all the adoration and temptation that comes his way, how wise of one so young to grasp this amazing truth. Some of us never learn it.

    And this:

    “For someone to spend money to go to his concerts as often as they are able, shouldn’t be judged. If David were a flirty type of guy, perhaps one could be considered a stalker. But no, David represents all that is beautiful, good and true about life. It’s for this reason that fans want to see him often and get to know him better. A person who follows David IS in their right mind, a very sound mind.”

    Amen! So many of us tolerate family, friends, and acquaintances thinking we are crazy to love him and support him as fiercely as we do. I’ve learned to live with that and so have they. Once a friend who asked me WHY? told me she finally understood when I answered her with, “He is pure joy.” His voice, every song, every smile, every long anticipated concert, every fan get-together, every tweet, vlog, laugh, all the love he shows to his family and to us is just joy and no one is going to steal my joy ever again.

    I love your whole comment. I remember an interview also (I wish I could find it) where an interviewer asked him something and he started singing “If I could only beeee” and then finished it talking “what the world wants me to be” while very lightly shaking his head. I can still hear him in my head saying it. Something about the way he said it tells me that you could be exactly right. That they told him he could have it all “IF”, but he said no.

    He is who he is. And yes, he is most definitely pure joy. ♥

    *Not exactly off topic. My comment relates to “writing” and “song” And… David, of course!! 🙂

    Prompted by this tweet, I looked up the lyrics of “Some Kind of Wonderful.”

    “MyDear Writer ‏@MyDearWriter
    Some kind of wonderful will Begin In August…. new melodies, new memories. Every minute is worth the wait.” ☺

    “Some Kind Of Wonderful”
    (by Carole King and Gerry Goffin)

    All you have to do is touch my hand
    To show me you understand
    And something happens to me
    That’s some kind of wonderful
    Any time my little world is blue
    I just have to look at you
    And everything seems to be
    Some kind of wonderful

    I know I can’t express
    This feeling of tenderness
    There’s so much I want to say
    But the right words just don’t come my way
    I just know when I’m in your embrace
    This world is a happy place
    And something happens to me
    That’s some kind of wonderful

    I first heard this song in 1961 recorded by the “Drifters.” (One of my favorite groups from the rock n’ roll days!!) It has also been sung by many other artists David is very familiar with, I’m sure!

    According to wikipedia:
    “Notable covers include versions by Marvin Gaye (1968), Jay and the Americans (1970), Carole King (1971), Peter Cincotti (2004), Aled Jones featuring Cerys Matthews (2007), and Michael Bublé on the deluxe editions of his fourth studio album Crazy Love (2010).”

    Although “Some Kind of Wonderful” is an older song, I hope David will bring “new memories” to it in BEGIN.

    I’ve been reading all the posts, and if this is in there I missed it. Why not have everyone pool however much they can, and then if the group wins, draw one of the names out and give the pillow to that person. (Sorry Angelica). It would be like a raffle. If you want, you could suggest a certain amount that everyone could afford, and however many times they donate that much, they get another chance to win. For instance, if the base amount is $5, and they donate $15, then they get their name in the pot 3 times. Just a thought. I love this site, thanks for all the work you do to keep it open.

    Lynnella,

    Please forgive me if I made you feel bad over a silly misunderstanding. I realize you didn’t mean any harm. You too Emmegirl…you know I love you and your comments always make me smile. I don’t know if I can explain but I will try.

    As I was loading this post in drafts I had a long time to examine the pillow. I just fell in love with it and maybe that made me want to talk about it in the comments. Maybe I was wrong to joke about everyone pooling their resources and donating the pillow to me. I never in a million years thought anyone would take me seriously. I had already bid on the pillow. I even bid against myself! lol.

    The admins and I often conference call to talk about the site and just to talk because after all these years, we have become so close. Don’t know how I would have started or kept up a fansite with zero experience without their love and support. Last week when we talked, I told them I had bid on the pillow and why. First to help RSO, of course, which of all David’s charities, gets the bulk of my contributions. I just believe it’s such a great program and I will never forget David and his mom going there themselves or the pic of him washing the feet of the leper. I think it changed him and me too. I keep a jar labeled Rising Star Outreach on my desk at work and have bought many bricks with my own funds as well and used this site to raise money with our own group on Angels for a Cause. So I don’t need any incentive to give to RSO, nor ever wanted anything in return. Second, I bid on the pillow because I simply love it.

    I know it may sound crazy, but the pillow represents to me all that I love about David. Maybe I am missing him just a little too. I love that his image is not an in-your-face pic, as David would say, “here’s my face.” The silhouette represents the mystery that he remains even after all these years of following him as fans: we still don’t understand completely the powerful hold he retains on us, even while absent. It also represents the mystery of who he will eventually become as an artist. That is ever fascinating to me. An added bonus is the silhouette is also something I feel would be perfectly fine with my husband, who never tells me no about anything David related, but I respect what feelings he won’t let on. It can’t be easy living with someone with ODD, lol. I love the music notes, like hieroglyphics for his soul. I love the keys to the piano he plays with such feeling. I never heard anyone transport so much emotion into inert ivory of black and white. I love the starkness of the black and white, simple and powerful, like him. Lastly, I love the chords of strength attached to the front to hold a book, symbols of his miraculous vocal chords and his strength of character. I have neglected my love of reading since starting the site, and I have the last two Twilight saga books and the complete hard cover set of The Hunger Games waiting to be read. I could see myself easing back into this old love with the help of my David pillow.

    One good thing that has come of this whole misunderstood but well-intentioned on everyone’s part drama is that I finally found the ability to cry again. I have told Djafan several times over the past year, especially with his leaving, that I just wish I could cry! I have often wanted to and felt deeply enough to bawl my head off over a song or just missing him, but for some weird reason, could not do it. Then, after trying to cheer myself up in unplugged last night, I finally went to bed with a heavy heart and woke up crying and haven’t stopped since, even while typing this.

    This is too long but in short…I’m keeping the pillow.

    Self Admin edit: That is, if I can hold onto it by Friday.

I swear I am the most boringly practical person you could ever imagine.

    Would anyone like some 17-year cicadas? We have about a million and would happily share.

    Cheers Everyone!

    Boy is it nice to have my internet working properly again. It’s been cutting out on me almost every time I tried to post in the last 3 days. (Luckily it worked for chat last night.) But I think it’s back to normal now.

    So …… Nandito Ako (here I am ) 😉

    Someone posted this link in the FOD comments. I either forgot this one or never saw It so I thought I’d share.

    1:08-1:14 and 2:15-2:22 are interesting.

    I miss him.

    Had a great time in chat last night! Was a good 4 hr therapy session!♥
    Angelica, hope you are doing better with your ODD and that you will own that great pillow! {{hugs}} I was lucky enough to get 2 personalized COS books and gave one to my sister. The pillow book holder is awesome!
    MT glad you posted the video. I had seen it before, but forgot about it. He is so subdued in it…something always grabs my heart string and twists it up when he talks about being gone for 2 yrs!
    Margy, I love your poem! The words are so true. Everytime I see or hear something, it reminds me of him, in one way or the other. Someone can be talking about something and I want to interrupt them saying “that reminds me of David” doing or saying this or that. A lot of the times I just don’t say anything or I would be interrupting all the time! lol

    I miss him too…so much!♥♥

    K Kari…is so great

    Yes, it was really a good time on Unplugged last night even if I was late (2 am here) for the party! In Fenfan land it was time to have lunch and go shopping!

    It has nearly been two months now and it seems more to me like 6 but without magic I can’t make this particular time go any faster!

    There is another artist who has done a video in a street, a favorite place sometimes. So knowing the underlying conditions I can’t do very much so I call upon Coldplay to “Fix You”. The words are heartfelt…

    Embedding help might be needed!! TY.

    He’s still trending. ❤
    Here are a few interesting tweets:
    How is David Archuleta trending? Isn't he on his mission?

    How is David Archuleta trending? I'm just surprised he has the fanbase to create a worldwide trending topic.”

    I guess this is how people find out. 🙂

    Betsy,

    I didn’t see those; thanks for sharing!
    That’s just what we want! To promote David in any way we can while he’s away and to keep his name out there in the public eye and in the media. The Trending Parties probably have a lot to do with David’s Twitter followers increasing at lightning speed!

    Hmm … Bebe, good theory.

    Maybe you’re right and it does have something to do with him trending all the time. Maybe some start following to see what the ruckus is about, and maybe some others so they can take part in the fun of trending. But however it’s happening, these new followers will become interested and when he returns, he will be familiar, part of their circle by then, and they might start checking out his music.

    haha Lots of maybes in there, but … maybe it will happen. One can hope. 🙂

    Bebe, I’m not much of a tweeter but I joined the party.

    Betsy, sometimes I love it when people don’t get it.

    Thanks Emme, Xaris, MT, Jans, and Abrra and Sky!

    Xaris, I have seen Hugh Laurie in the Jeeves and Wooster series only a couple of times. I liked it a lot but when I looked it’s not on netflix like The Black Adder.
    P. G. Wodehouse is my favorite author next to Jane Austen. Love all his books, but especially the ones about Jeeves and Wooster. Even funnier in print. Will have you

    MT#108 “Hmm … Bebe, good theory. ”

    Sounds like a good theory MT. But I can’t take full credit for it as much as I’d like. Djafan and I came up with it one night during a brainstorming session. Sometimes we don’t remember who exactly said what but it’s all good. In this case, since she’s the Twitter Queen I’ll give her the edge. 😉

    *************

    I fell upon this adorable video tonight:
    11 year old David on Jenny Jones

    “Jenny Jones: I hope you want to be a singer when you grow up because you sure got it.

    David: Yeah I want to be a singer.”

    And the rest is history!
