The Voice David Archuleta

Brooke + David Archuleta “Cherry Lane”

Posted by djafan on Wednesday, December 17, 2014

THIS FROM BROOKE WHITE ABOUT DAVID.

This guy, I can’t tell you the love and respect I have for him and his absolutely incredible talent which can only be surpassed by his character. Maybe he wins the #bestpersonIknow hashtag award. I’ve known him for years now since our Idol days, and have watched him grow from a shy teenage heart throb into such a great dude with such a solid sense of himself, God and all that is important in life. Since the return of his mission we’ve seen each other for a quick minute but have talked several times. Every one wants a piece of him, I knew people were beating down his door with requests and opportunities to lend his golden pipes so I was apprehensive at first to even ask him to do this, as a friend I try not to ask for anything 🙂 But given the nature of the project I figured it was worth asking, so I picked up the phone and gave him a call and told him about the cause. With in a few days he responded with an enthusiastic yes! Such great news! It just so happened that we would both be in Nashville at the same time, this in itself is a miracle.

So he came to Daniel Tashian’s studio on a Friday and the three of us wrote and recorded “Cherry Lane”, one of the happiest songs of the whole record…. stylistically it probably leans a bit more my direction with it’s throw back vibe, but the soothing sound of his voice on this call and answer chorus is what makes it completely magical. You don’t understand, his pitch perfect tone is at such a world class level, and it’s baffling, and yeah, nerve racking to even have my voice on the same track. Seriously, I get a tear whenever I hear him sing. Who doesn’t?! Anywho, “Cherry Lane” is a song for us grown ups, it was that first street I grew up on, it represents a simpler happy time and place when we’d “rather stay outside and play than stare down at the phone all day”. It’s emotional too though, David’s voice beckoning “we could go back, we could go back to where we were”. Thanks David for being a part of this. Also, funny side note, I was so excited that I called my parents from Nashville to tell them about the song the next day, and my mom said “oh honey, the street was actually called “cheery lynn”…. haha, ah well, cherry lane/ cheery lynn, tomato /tomahto close enough 😉

We’ve reached over 60% of our goal! Please help spread the word and get us over the hump!

“Never Grow Up” Charity Album : Links to this worthy cause are bolded.

I am supporting O.U.R. in their mission to save children from slavery by getting all of you involved in a charity album!

O.U.R., comprised largely of former NAVY Seals, Special Agents and members of the CIA, sets up and engages in missions with the purpose of rescuing kidnapped children from sexual slavery throughout the world. In October, one such mission resulted in 55 children being freed from sex slavery in Colombia. Another recent undercover mission into Haiti was documented thoroughly here to give supporters a sense of how much planning one of these missions takes.

Each mission costs roughly $20,000, so White’s goal of $25,000 in pledges will result in $20,000 being donated to help pay for one mission, with the rest of the pledges being used to cover production and shipping costs. But that’s not all. With Foundation Entertainment’s matching offer, a successful campaign will mean that two missions can be carried out instead of just one.

To learn more about Operation Underground Railroad, visit their Ways to Help page, their O.U.R. Process page or their Become an Abolitionist page.

    Janel aka Nellie (from FOD comments) listened to the song and wrote these lyrics down. Thanks Janel!

    CHERRY LANE
    Once upon a time we were little boys and little girls,
    With monsters underneath our beds,
    Imagination filled our heads,
    Rather stay outside and play than stare down at the phone all day.

    (Chorus): Remember when we had it all (we had it all)
    We (you) were just 3 feet small (3 feet small)
    Somewhere the train went off the track
    Now I’d give anything to get it back.
    If we could find that street again (street again)
    Where we’d (we would) run (play) with all our friends. (all our friends)
    It’s waiting there, it’s calling out my name
    Cherry Lane, Cherry Lane.

    You went to school you got too cool.
    Used to love to dance but they called you fool.
    You got a job making minimum wage
    Figured it was time to act your age.
    Now we’ve got kids of our own,
    Meant to show us the way we’ve always known

    (Chorus)
    Climbing trees and lemonade, hide-n-seek, those games we played
    They were never meant to fade away.

    (Chorus)

    Cherry Lane…we can go back, (woo-ooh) we can go back to where we were, to where we were, Cherry Lane.

    Seriously though, it’s a really pretty song. I’ve always liked Brooke. She’s a sweetie and she has a lovely voice. But like others have said, a little more David would have been nice. And as someone also said, and I agree, it’s Brooke’s CD and it’s for a really good cause so it’s all good.

    At least he’s singing solo at the end. Naturally, as a David fan, that’s my favorite part. 🙂

    And I loved the write-up Brooke did for David! Very gracious of her to acknowledge him the way she did. Big kudos to her for that. I even liked the little bit she added about the song title. haha That was cute.

    Love what everyone has said, and especially what Brooke wrote. She gives us a good inside view to some of what could be going on in his life right now. Like instead of starving for recognition, everyone wanting a piece of him. ^_^

    Seriously, they can get in line. Right?

    Golly, with all these tidbits, instead of slacking off, it makes the idea of a CD all his own almost…… Well you know when you go to a good restaurant and the appetizers are so fun that you almost fill up before the meal gets there? Not happening. Dear DA, it just makes us more hungry. And almost impossible to "imagine" how good it is going to be.

    Thanks again Admins for this article. By spotlighting this and it's cause you have just made my Christmas a little sweeter.

    I see a hat on the head of david ?? maybe he is singing, “Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody.” Al Jolson.

    I am speechless, intrigued and clueless. It looks to me that he could possibly be singing in a chapel. It looks like the suit and tie from Madrid.

    Nice to see you got your own cakes. I was thinking you would have to share with the puppies.

    Thanks to Bebe for the new pics. I see David wears a different tie in each city so that we can pinpoint where they were taken. It won’t take long to sort them out since there is a dearth of pictures. Oh, was I whining? Sorry, I am truly grateful for what we receive.

    David and his group will be traveling so it’s time again for Silverfox’s prayer.

    Dear Lord,

    Please take care of David.
    Watch over him, protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.

    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.

    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    CLOAK DAVID IN YOUR PROTECTIVE ARMS, KEEPING DAVID AND HIS VOICE HEALTHY AND STRONG as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen
    .

    So is it just me? The second link in #116 takes me to the Church website, but I can’t find anything regarding David…. yes, it doesn’t take much to confuse me. 😉

    These photos are definitely easy on the eyes. I’m guessing that there are no videos because the devotionals were held in churches. Sad day. 😦
