Jamie Grace ~ Reminding me of David Archuleta

Posted by bluesky4home on Sunday, October 7, 2012

There is a song from the musical, “Finnigans Rainbow” that includes the line: “When I’m not near the girl I love, I love the girl I’m near!” That sentiment is fairly understandable for the character in the story, but it doesn’t really ‘work for me’ where DA and his music is concerned. *_*

Still, now and then I run into a really fun individual that has SOME of the same qualities that I so admire in the Voice. Ergo… “Reminding me of DA”.

For today, Jamie Grace is “Reminding me of DA”, and I wonder, have I found DA’s “Sister-from-another-mother”?

Jamie Grace is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter who just graduated from college (she began early). She has had a bundle of challenges thrown at her since early childhood. Yet, sustained by the love and support of her family, especially her relationship with her sister, she has not only overcome, but somehow, thrived. The beginning of her upward journey began with a set of drums given to her by her father. Instead of the ”girl with Tourette’s syndrome”, she became the “girl who plays music”. This last year she was nominated for a Grammy. She writes of her early life: “I grew up a sick kid, Tourette’s syndrome, ADHD, asthma, pneumonia… my sister was one of the few constants in my life offering a smile, hug or movie night on top of her patience and strength.”

Here is the official video of her song, “Hold Me”, featuring Toby Mac, who discovered her and has been supporting her career.

I hear ‘happy’ in her voice. I hear DA’s funky rhythm and blues. I hear a joy that shines without being glossy, a glow that generously invites, rather than the pulsing strobe of manufactured necessity.

(DA… I want to hear a duet. I am seriously asking the universal powers-that-be to work on this… ((You have 1.5 years, powers….  Do it.)) )

This video is of her song, “Not Alone”. Jamie tells about writing it:

“I wrote this song in just a few hours sitting at my piano needing to pour my heart. Having had friends who have survived cancer and other illnesses but also having had a good friend go to be with Jesus after a battle with cancer just this year I’ve seen firsthand the strength it takes to endure that type of pain. This particular song shares the story of a mother with a child who is sick but she is yet understanding that God’s arms are right there and she’s not alone. I hope this is an encouragement to you whether you’ve face difficulty with illness, finances, relationships or whatever it is. “We may have pain, but not as great as His name.”

Jamie… I hear the sweet, breathy vowels like those used by Lights. I love those “oooos” at the beginning.  The depth and feeling in the delivery. The courage. The commitment. Yeah, I’m signing up for the DA/JG concert!

For Christmas, she gathered lots of family and friends and wrote the song “Christmas Together”.

The chorus includes these words:

“And unless ya got 20 people,
stuck on an elevator,
I can’t imagine a time —
When we’re all this close!”

Seriously? An elevator? Somehow that just rang a bell with me.  ^_^

On a more serious note, Jamie just posted a new video on Sep 6 2012 for a young cousin who is in the hospital. She covers a song by Emeli Sandé, “My Kind of Love”. Jamie changes the last verse and adds an impromptu chorus at the end as a message:

“You see the times, they’re changing, I’m sure of nothing that I know
Except this is us, this is love. This is where I’m home
And while hearts breaking, and nothing is for keeps,
This is us, this is love. This is where I sleep”

In my view, this song and her delivery of it, is a rather good summation or post-script to the message from DA’s album: Begin.

Anyway…..

(Dear DA: The weather is good. The family is fine. While you are gone, I’ll try not to whine.)

Let me know what you think of Jamie Grace! And whose reminding you of DA?

Here are the lyrics to “My Kind of Love” by Emeli Sandé

I can’t buy your love, don’t even wanna try.
Sometimes the truth won’t make you happy, so I’m not gonna lie.
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you, it beats only for you.

I know i’m far from perfect, nothin’ like your entourage
I can’t grant you any wishes, I won’t promise you the stars.
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you, it beats only for you.

Cause when you’ve given up.
When no matter what you do it’s never good enough.
When you never thought that it could ever get this tough,
Thats when you feel my kind of love.

And when you’re crying out.
When you fall and then can’t pick, you’re heavy on the ground
When the friends you thought you had haven’t stuck around.
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

You won’t see me at the parties, I guess I’m just no fun.
I won’t be turning up the radio singing “Baby You’re The One”.
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you, it beats only for you.

I know sometimes I get angry, and I say what i don’t mean.
I know I keep my heart protected, far away from my sleeve.
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you, it beats only for you.

Cause when you’ve given up.
When no matter what you do it’s never good enough.
When you never thought that it could ever get this tough,
Thats when you feel my kind of love.

And when you’re crying out.
When you fall and then can’t pick, you’re heavy on the ground
When the friends you thought you had haven’t stuck around.
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

Cause when you’ve given up.
When no matter what you do it’s never good enough.
When you never thought that it could ever get this tough,
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

You can see her sing it here:

Not the best recording for her voice, but I think it was the emotion. Still a great listen.

Here is Jamie showing up with little kids… Enjoy.

  1. Finnigan’s Rainbow? Oh wow…. that brings back such fun childhood memories! There are some movies I’ve seen during my childhood that I thought I would never meet people who have seen them too, much less appreciate them! Finnigan’s is one of them 🙂

    Jamie Grace is a gem! Thank you for bringing her to our attention. Yes, I can see David being floored with her talent 🙂

    “You see the times, they’re changing, I’m sure of nothing that I know
    Except this is us, this is love. This is where I’m home
    And while hearts breaking, and nothing is for keeps,
    This is us, this is love. This is where I sleep”

    DANG! That is deep… Thanks so much BLUESKY.

    “I hear ‘happy’ in her voice. I hear DA’s funky rhythm and blues. I hear a joy that shines without being glossy, a glow that generously invites, rather than the pulsing strobe of manufactured necessity.”
    wow. I love that! and I completely agree with you,”sister from another mother” indeed!( I was noticing too, how she smiles,just like David, when she is singing♥)
    “I love the way you hold me♫♪whoa uh oh oh oh ohhh♫♪♥ so catchy and definitely reminds me of David.I can hear him in that song, and that’s one I would love to hear as a duet.(don’t know why but David,singing Bubbly, just popped into my head”

    Her last verse change in her cover My Kind of Love, is amazing!… really beautiful.
    “You see the times, they’re changing, I’m sure of nothing that I know

Loved all the songs and the last one with the little girls was so much fun. I love those kind of songs where you can understand the words and there isn’t all that autotune junk!

    Jackryan4DA, Jans11, MLpb3, Skydancer1x:

    So fun to see you passing by JR!! Yeah, Finnigans Rainbow was always one of my favorite films. I loved the music! The story was amazingly silly and yet could strike a deep chord within me because of the meaning in the music. Here’s to silly, fun, entertaining musicals that stick with you forever!

    Yea, I thought Jamie’s lyrics went pretty deep as well. Unusual girl. But I find many of the young people now days to be unusual. I am encouraged by a lot of what I see. I guess that is one reason that I was drawn to Jamie Grace. DA is not alone: there is a small army of youth who are committed to a better world and willing to show up with all they have and are to sing about it (or dance or write or teach or create!). It doesn’t make me miss DA less ( and Thanks! Angelica for changing his name to: David Archuleta in the title per Djas’ kind advice and article. ^_^), but it encourages me that he will be joining with many others of whom we are still unaware, to undertake a fight for pure talent and expression and personal ideals.

    I can dig that.

    On another note: (heh) my sister called me last night and said how she was thinking of me. Why was she thinking of me, you ask? Because she had purchased DA’s latest CD: Begin., and was loving it. She wanted to know if I had it already (she has been out of town for a bit ((Dear Sister: you have been almost off planet if you did not get my sighing and swooning vibes all the way over at your house!)) and is just catching up after a very busy “family” summer). Her words: “It has some of my very favorite songs on it!” She was excited.

    I guess I may have to go over to her place and support her a bit. Family. ^_^

    Thank you all so very very much for your kind comments regarding our mother, Cherryl, known to most of you as dakgal. On behalf of us, her children, Scott, Bret, Tim and Lisa, you gave her more joy than you’ll ever comprehend.

    Bluesky,

    Thank you for bringing our attention to this refreshing new artist, Jamie Grace. I see the similarity in the lyrics, in the
    phrasing, in the types of songs both she and David choose to sing. She has a lovely voice and I agree that David would probably enjoy her artistry, if he knew of her.

    Love these lyrics, too:

    “You see the times, they’re changing, I’m sure of nothing that I know
    Except this is us, this is love. This is where I’m home
    And while hearts breaking, and nothing is for keeps,
    This is us, this is love. This is where I sleep”

    Very moving lyrics for someone so young.

    May I ask how you found her?

    Abs,

    Thank you for bringing over the comment from Dak’s family. It’s a comfort to know that her online family gave her so much pleasure. Missing Dak every day.

    I saw a post about her on another blog I read – under “entertainment news”. I was impressed. I don’t get out much so I thought she might be fairly well known… well by the younger set, at least. My son Joey who sings, knew of her and was excited that I had found her music. I can never get anything past Joey!

    Anyway… I read up a bit on her and just thought: DA! You don’t have to do everything alone, there are going to be people who are working on the same things you are and have been working on them while you are gone. Things like: making a mark as who you are instead of who the music industry tells you to be, overcoming challenges and staying true to self, writing music from the heart…. (okay… don’t get me started! I have a passion for the young-soldiers-for-good that I think the world needs right now and I think they are out there, each thinking they may be alone. They are coming just when the world needs them most. And finding ways to get the music to us all. I think DA will find even more ways to be successful when he comes home than he had before. And I believe there are talented folks just bursting out all over bringing …. ((*_*)) …erm. LIke I said: Don’t get me started (^_^) ).

    It may be hard when DA gets back. But I believe it will be easier in some ways as well. And I love seeing people like Jamie making a mark, cause it reminds of, and encourages me for, DA.

    PS….

    (The Other Side of Down is excellent music to listen to while doing one’s taxes. Just sayin’)

    This is sort of a ‘sign of the times’, how things end, yet we will always have beautiful memories……I just learned that the Thaifoon restaurant, at the Gateway Mall in SLC, closed on Sept. 30. I’ll never forget Dec. 18, 2010, when so many of us gathered there and met one another, during the unforgettable MOTAB weekend —all of us there because of David!

    Bluesky,

    I want to thank you for finding and sharing Jamie Grace with us all. I too hear happy in her voice but, as with David, so much more. Just listened to “My Kind of Love” twice and the raw emotion is so powerful. I feel the blood rush to my face and the tears start in my eyes especially toward the end. There are some wonderful young people out there and we should lift them up. People like David and Jamie Grace are the future I hope for and believe in. They awaken the better angels in us all and in a world grown dark and vulgar, their light shines brighter for the gloom. I love what you say here in your comment #9,

    “Things like: making a mark as who you are instead of who the music industry tells you to be, overcoming challenges and staying true to self, writing music from the heart….

    Ha, ha! You make me smile. ^_^ I haven’ had that experience yet. (except when I go to the Thai restaurant!) But music does remind me of lots of things. And… having had three sons serve on missions – well – when each of them were gone there were things that they all did that “reminded” me of the one that was not there. I would never want to “compare” Jamie Grace (or any other singer) to David Archuleta. Not much point in that for me. But some of the things Jamie does… and what she stands for … that does remind me of him. In a very good way.

    And it reminds me that he will find friends when he comes home. There will be like-minded individuals out there who are also in the music industry. He will not be alone.

    I find that very comforting.

    So… what about that “Don’t run away” song?!

    Hmmm, I don’t know what happened to my comment that was on here yesterday, and I can’t remember what all I said except to thank Bebereader for introducing me to a cute and brilliant artist. So, thank you Bebe for this introduction. 🙂 She is good, and I like her spunk. Yeah, a duet would be great!

    I love the song that was leaked today! ♥♥ I really, really hope it becomes a reality at some point.

    Hey Tawna,

    I’d love to take credit for introducing you to Jamie Grace but it belongs to Bluesky, who wrote the awesome article too!

    I searched the back room high and low for the comment you posted yesterday but didn’t find it. 😦

    Dang, I should put this computer-related headache to bed. But first, thank you, Bluesky, for this article (I really do remember typing your name yesterday because I scrolled up to make sure I was spelling it correctly).Sorry for the mix-up. ♥

    The way my computer has been acting lately, it probably ate my comment. I know it was here, because I saw it later before I logged off. No worries tho’… it’s Halloween month… strange things happen. 🙂

    I want to thank Djafan for her last post. I really had gotten away from being random on youtube and since her post, have gone back to my old ways. It is so true the real David needs to be “seen” as well as heard. The only problem is it makes me miss him more.
    I was at the Ventura concert and decided to listen to all the concert. So great. One of the lines really struck home with me: in A Silent Christmas by Amy Grant, there is the line, An angelic voice in the chaos and the noise. I have had quite the year, filled with more change and accidents than I could have imagined. David, Always, is that voice for me. I am so thankful for him and for all of you.

    Wow!! I REALLY love “The Best I Can”! Has this been posted before? How did I miss it? It’s such a “feel good” song with a little Jason Mraz element to it. Also enjoying “Don’t Run Away”. Think that the music needs to be more polished….seems a bit loud and harsh to me, but the voice and melody is amazing! The anticipation of other vault treasures gives me…..in the words of David……”that tingly feeling”!

    Sometimes the conversation is slow in chat, other times it’s so fast I can’t keep up. I’ve been doing chats since my first one in 1998. I stayed silent for a long while but once I came
    out to play, I never went back. LOL Wait until you’re ready to join in the conversation, no pressure at all. Glad you made it.

    just a little story ………..
    I went to get a haircut this week and the new guy that cut my hair was a fan of David from Idol days.He said "that was the best season,David A was sooo good, he should have won!' (he had noticed my picture of David, on my iphone)
    ….he knew about David being on a mission,from news articles but was shocked to find out all David has been doing since "Crush" Well, needless to say,by the time he had finished with my hair, he knew everything and more! LOL and was anxious to catch up. I wished I had a copy of BEGIN with me but didn't,,however he saw all the songs listed on my phone I told him to google David Archuleta,buy his songs on itunes and to follow him on Twitter! and etc. He asked alot of questions and liked hearing about D again! so fun♥
