    Bluesky, ((hugs)) That was a beautiful comment. And you’re right,my family is also a mixture of all that you mentioned. Some I agree with others I don’t but judgement and hate are never ever involved. Love and respect trumps all.

    Bebe I did come to St George per the invitation posted as title to this page. Yesterday I was at Tuacahn and found my seats for 11/6 & 11/7 so I will be prepared when the time comes. There was a bulldozer on stage pushing dirt around for a bull rider show this weekend.

    My daughter was smirking in the background but no words were spoken. Lucky for her. Then I saw her take a pic of my lisence plate holder (I’d rather be at a David concert) to show her students today. They are probably all giggling right now
    Dja looking forward to seeing you in November.

    Djafan – we must not let our differences divide us. We are strong when we stand together in love and respect and mutual kindness and consideration. Our humanity demands it, our safety requires it, our hope springs from it. Nothing is more wonderful than life together. In this, we are “one Voice”

    I do not have any tickets yet. (sad face) But maybe there can be a possibility. We will see.

    What DA’s voice stirs within us, we have within us. That is the miracle. That is SO worth the effort of holding on.

    Abrra 13: I love the solid progression that is mirrored in the actions of the guy at the table. We have all experienced it –

    1. Laughter and total inclusion – he has us at “hello” no matter what comes after: the audience belongs to him – he just shows up as himself and they are his

    2. Head shaking side-ways – yeah, he’s got the beat, he has soul

    3. Head shaking up and down

    4. Turning, unable to concentrate on food or anything else we may be doing

    5. Head determines that there are not enough ways to shake and heart and body chime in

    6. More looking around, now at others as well: “I need confirmation that what I am hearing, seeing, experiencing is not just me. You see/hear/feel it also, right?” “This IS REAL, right?” (Sorry, it is useless to try to verify, son. There are no words and you will always wonder if it really happened.)

    7. Left with the joy of discovery and the sweet sadness that it cannot and will never be duplicated. You now have a hunger that cannot be satiated any other way than by hearing him — LIVE — once again. Because of this you may question your own sanity.

    Just saying.

    Happily insane, bluesky

David singing to US…. that one went straight through my heart and out the other side.💗 No one can ever convince me that David didn’t love his fans, or know that we loved him back. In November at his first real “this IS a full David Archuleta concert”, I hope he remembers and feels it. 💗 Dayzee, where is your seat ? Doesn’t look like a bad seat in the house!

    Skydancer –

    Perhaps the healing cycle from the past will slowly go full circle. ^_^

    I have no idea how he is going to manage fame, the joy of performing, the angst of publicity, the need to resource his inner private world, the power and immediate and demanding drive to share music that is a part of his very being, the intimacy that he has to have missed with the audience (that I believe he just may become overwhelmed with when he is “back” with us on stage)…… I guess all I can say is, I don’t know how this will all come down, I just don’t.

    There are factors that communicate and bind when he performs. I pray that they may also offer a new experience and closeness as well. I have joy in his joy and I guess I just trust his journey.

    Janel is posting some screencaps from Meet the Mormons DVD

    She talked about it in FOD comments.

    “Janel aka Nellie says:
    April 8, 2015 at 8:17 pm
    The Meet the Mormons DVD has an extra about the choosing and making of Glorious including some behind the scenes footage of David recording it while he was in Chile. He’s talking about it in a part of it where he compliments Stephanie Mabey on the song and on her talent as a writer. I was able to screen cap some pictures which I’ll share in a little while.
    I encourage all to buy it because if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth seeing. The extras have an additional story about an artist living in Las Vegas but from Italy. Also behind the scenes of the filming of the movie with more breathtaking scenes along with commentary from the director and producer and other extras.
    My favorite little bit about the Glorious extra was when Blair Treu, the director said when they were recording David in the studio, one of the people from Chile working in the studio looked over his shoulder at Blair, while David was singing and in his broken English said “He’s good, he’s good.” He didn’t know who David was. David said on the different takes he was writing “Elder 1, Elder 2″, etc. because of “Elder” on his name tag. LOL”

    You can see the rest on her Twitter timeline. Too many to post here:
    https://twitter.com/Nellie1983

    Thanks Janel for sharing your screencaps.

    The DVD is available on Amazon for $7.95 http://www.amazon.com/Meet-Mormons-DVD-Jermaine-Sullivan/dp/B00TFOKH7I

    Oh wow. This is the kind of song David could sink his teeth into as a duet. Performed here by Seth Glier and Crystal Bowersox.


    Seth Glier

    “Grammy-nominated artist Seth Glier has just released the video for the title track of his latest album If I Could Change One Thing, a ballad featuring American Idol alum Crystal Bowersox. Watch the exclusive premiere below.

    For Glier’s fourth album, he’s taking his aesthetic from acoustic balladeer to modern-pop crooner, all while preserving the heartfelt songwriting that has propelled him to opening slots for artists like James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams.”

    “”This song is about that moment when a relationship falls apart and both people have stopped blaming each other,” Glier tells Billboard. “Often times I find that the reason of why people stay together and why people split up are fairly simple.”
    “I think that we can all relate to the lyric,” Bowersox adds. “The gut-wrenching emotion of regret and missed opportunities to shower the ones we love with praise rather than taking a precious relationship for granted.”

    **********NOTICE**********

    Recently I decided that until we get new videos of David’s relating to shows or interviews, that I was taking a break from hosting Unplugged http://original.livestream.com/thevoiceunplugged on Saturday nights. The site is still running and playing the videos and its open 24/7 for those who want to stop in and watch. Also, saragirl http://original.livestream.com/saragirl is running for those who want to watch Nandito Ako and the Face to Face interview in English.

    Nothing has changed for those who go to the site and view. It’s the technical side that has changed for updating content.

    Tonight I thought I would go in and do some organizing of the video sets. Sadly, I have to report that Livestream has updated their software and I do not have access to the old dashboard studio. This is where I was able to add/delete videos and play requests. There are about 500 videos loaded up, so at least they can be watched. I have written tech support to ask if I will be able to upload new content in the future. I have my doubts as Livestream is changing more to Live broadcasting for a fee. They do offer free access but it’s not anything that functions like the old studio. It looks high tech, like something you see in a TV control room studio.

    I visited the cemetery in a place my great grandfather and his brothers founded 150 years ago. No sign of any old buildings due to earthquakes and floods, but the cemetery in the middle of nowhere was well tended. My grandfather died there a few months before my grandmother was born. It was a hard life, but beautiful.and cherished.

    Will miss Saturday nights, but life and computer services keep changing. Appreciate everyone who made those nights so special, especially for Abrra who kept us going for so long. Still taking advantage of the Unplugged site and have it playing now. 🙂

    I have an extra ticket for Utah Valley University’s Religious Freedom Symposium on Wed. 4/15. Although I have not seen this advertised anywhere, David’s name is on the ticket and I am assuming he will show up. If anyone is interested in the ticket let me know.

    #33 – Abrra, concerning your reason for watching Idol, I haven’t been able to get interested in it, but on the Voice, there is a 16 year old guy named Sawyer Fredricks who is fantastic. He’s more of a folk, country, soul singer, but he is the sweetest, most humble soul I’ve seen since David. Everyone is saying he’s going to win, and I have to agree with them. He’s on team Pharrell, and Pharrell is thrilled he got him. Pharrell was on Jimmy Fallon’s and Jimmy Fallon said here’s the guy who’s going to win the whole thing and pointed to Sawyer’s picture. Pharrell wouldn’t comment on that, but said when we pushed our buttons, we expected to turn and see a 60 yr old black man, and here was this 15 yr. old white kid. We were all blown away. Here’s his blind audition. It’s kind of upbeat, but he can sing the slow soulful songs too:

    #58 – Jan11, once again I think we must be twins separated at birth. Sawyer and David definitely do have very different styles and tones, but Sawyer seems so humble and kind. That’s what everyone has said about him so far, and the other contestants love him. When he sang with the little girl from Utah on the battle round, they talked to him about toning it down a bit because his voice was way stronger and he could over power her with ease. He dialed it back so much and they just blended beautifully. A lot of the other battles seemed like the people were trying to outscream each other. Adam complimented them on blending and both were trying to accommodate the other. Pharrell complimented Sawyer by saying he’s so good but has zero ego. You can see it on his face, just like you could see it on David’s face. I remember once hearing David say in an interview that he couldn’t figure out why everyone liked his voice. He said it was painful for him to hear himself. Zero ego. To me that’s as appealing as the voice itself.

    Here’s Did You Ever See the Rain, from the Battle Rounds. You can see the restraint and the chemistry between them. I saw a comment that someone was hoping they’d team up and be the new Civil Wars, since Joy Williams partner quit.

    #57 Abrra – Emily West was really good. She reminded me of an old fashioned movie star, like Lana Turner or someone, so beautiful. I thought she got beat at the end, but I don’t really remember. I do know I liked her though. I enjoy the back and forth with the judges/coaches on the Voice almost as much as I do the singers. They’re hilarious. And, I’ve noticed that they are way kinder than the judges on some of the other talent shows. They seem to give more constructive criticism and not just criticism. Of course, they’re coaching their team, but they are just as nice to the other singers from other teams.

    Sawler Fredericks has caught me off guard and I have been listening to him ever since. I would never compare him to David because they are in different genres of singing. I would never even start to compare their voices because well, you just don’t need to. They are very different.

    I have been reading his guestbook and what people are writing around the world shows how hungry everyone is for such a singer.

    http://www.sawyerfredericks.com/sawyers_guestbook/

    I am fascinated with the vibes he gives through his artistry and through his facial expressions that hit you in the heart. In his duet, he does not overpower her or show off but wants the duet to be exceptional first. David is just like that. Here is an excerpt from his guestbook. The comments are amazing.

    “Debbie Maxfield – April 10, 2015 @11:10 pm

    You are a fresh blessing..thank you for sharing your God given joy!! You touch a place in all of our hearts. I think we all are so thirsty for the pureness and soulful depth you behold. Peace be with you….you have been bleesed with purpose…it’s like…wowza. I’m a bonified fan now and blessed myself in my discovery..yay!! ”

    I read in the guest book entries from Italy to Brazil. It is amazing how music plays such an important part in our lives especially throughout the holidays. I came to the next entry and I was reminded of how people have been touched by David with his special songs that we all know. He really smooths the day over and makes it good. I am hoping for those days again.

    “Hey Sawyer, I am not even sure if you will ever read this, but I feel compelled to tell you a couple of things. I am 29, and I am bipolar and have tried killing myself twice. I found out I was bipolar when I was your age. It’s a struggle everyday. I have been in and out of hospitals over 4 times in the past year alone. One tool they try to teach us is to have a “crisis kit” you put random things in there that are supposed to make you happy and calm. I struggle to find one moment of happiness every single day. Then there was you, from the moment I first heard you sing I felt this overwhelming sense of joy, comfort, and peace. I then looked you up on youtube to hear your original songs. You blew me away. I have been listening to your music for hours a day. My mom even noticed that I was laughing more. What it boils down to is,Sawyer Fredericks, you’ve brought me back to life. Thank you for being you and sharing your art with the world. I cannot wait to see you continue to grow. You’re just wonderful and deserve everything that comes your way from being on the Voice. My mom and I will continue to vote for you till you win. Much love and thanks…”

    Lynnella, I ,too, was blown away by Sawyer. There are a lot of things about him that remind me of David. I hope he wins and goes on to have a great career. I kind of think he will avoid the crazy pop world and find his own niche, just like David.

    Hi guys, just thought I’d mention that the man in the Ribbon In The Sky vid was one of the other celebrities from Duffy’s Hope. His name is Wesley Jonathan. He was in a movie called Roll Bounce.

    SB, the reason I say that Sawyer is right up there with David is because they are parallel in “good with out the ego” and they both have helped people in health crisis’. When in the photo line at a VIP I once heard a guy telling David that he had saved his life. David asked how and the man said that he was about 300 lbs and drowning in self pity when David was on AI. When he seen how David conducted himself from week to week at his age, he decided to change his life around. He lost over 100 lbs and David’s music made him happy. I’ll never forget that. I have heard all different stories, but this one I heard with my own ears. Not eavesdropping as I was standing right next to them and couldn’t help hearing the conversation. 🙂 It really is “great that someone’s music brings joy, comfort and peace to so many”.

    I cannot compare their voices, per say, as they are as different as night and day. They are both God given talents that are so unique. I know that I love hearing both of them and I would buy Sawyer’s music and go to his concerts as I do David’s. He wouldn’t ever replace David as #1 because there is something so very special about David. But, to me Sawyer is right up there next to David on my list.

    SB, hope all your snow is gone now, the calendar says it’s Spring. 🙂

    So thrilled to hear that you all see the same thing in Sawyer that I saw. He and David are like night and day in their genres, but there is something similar in their spirits that I see. Maybe, after the Voice is over, Sawyer will move to Nashville, at least for a while to record, and will run into David. Wouldn’t that be interesting. I have a feeling they each know who the other one is. I almost feel like I did when David was on Amer. Idol. I could hardly wait from week to week to see what he was singing, and then I would be so nervous for him, especially after he messed up the words on We Can Work It Out, that I used to sit and pray the whole time he was singing that he wouldn’t forget his words. Ah, the good ole days (lol). Sawyer is a year younger than David was when he was on Amer. Idol, but he is every bit as professional. You know when he comes out there, you’re going to hear something special. Love both of them. Can’t put and number on them, much like I can’t number my sons. I’ll be interested to see, as time goes on, what kind of person Sawyer is. We already know that David is so special there aren’t enough words to describe him. Well, it’s late and I’m getting too sentimental. I’ve been under the weather lately, spent 4 days in the hospital this week. Found out I have Congestive Heart Failure, but working to improve. God bless all of you who comment and read this site. It is only one of two places I comment. Just don’t feel safe on any others.

    Love to all, Lynnella

    Hi peeps! So glad to see the St George concerts getting a great response. November 7th sold out and November 6th has 7 seats left! And more states to be announced! Fun to watch twitter and all the requests for the many states.

    I see there are some The Voice, the show lol fans. I’ve been watching it since its beginning. It is great entertainment and the coaches are fun to watch. The singers talent vary year to year and every year I pick a favorite. Last summer I attended the summer concert, great live singing.

    This year I like Mia, Kimberly, and Sawyer. Sawyer does have a very unique tone and style of singing but for me he doesn’t come close to David. He’s missing the soul stirring signature vocals that David has and did at that age. Interesting to say that in my large family I’m the only one who likes Sawyer, they compare his voice to finger nails on a chalkboard, go figure lol. I do get teased about David though they do admit his voice is like no other but not into his music. Maybe that will change with his new music.

    I’m so glad that the twitter attacks on David have just about disappeared. These are sad times when people bully with threats of murder, rape, and demanding David to take his own life. There is just no excuse.

    Very curious as to what David is going to sing and say on the 15. Many fans will be there so hope to hear all about it.

    Been a busy week with grandkids spring break! I finally got caught with all the comments!

    Dear Lynnella

    I am so sorry to hear of your health challenges. Almost five years ago I had an amazing health challenge to face. Basically, we were “filling out the papers” and putting things in order for a big change. Today, I still have some stuff to deal with, I am doing well, and each day is a gift.

    I pray that you and your family will find the strength, and the comfort and guidance you need to find your way through this. Miracles happen every day. You are a miracle. You are loved. You are always “home” in His arms. You are always welcome here.

    Much love, bluesky

    Thanks everyone for all the good wishes for my health. As we age, we all face these things. Knowing where I’m going once I do go, makes it a little easier. However, I’d like to stick around a bit longer, so I might actually get to a David Archuleta concert. Never been, but so enjoy all the videos that those who actually go, take.

    Hi Bluesky – I live in Louisville, KY. I wasn’t born here, but I’ve lived here since I was 7, and since I’m now 73, that’s a long time. I am feeling a lot better today. Had a visit from my oldest grandson and his other grandmother, my friend, and his girlfriend and their baby. My first great grandson, named Kieran. He’s almost 4mos. So cute. Funny how a baby can make you feel better. I’m supposed to get a priestly blessing from a couple of LDS elders next week. I’m Methodist, but I have a friend who is LDS and she asked if I would like them to come. Of course, I’ll take all the prayers and blessings I can get. Since David is in Nashville, I was hoping they might call and get him to come up and bless me. I’d better put 911 on speed dial, just in case (lol).

    #86 Sandybeaches – one more and I’ll stop before I get kicked off the site. This may have been on TV. Last Mon. night when the Voice was on, I was in the ER and didn’t get to see it all. This was the rehearsal with Pharrell where Pharrell let Sawyer tell the band how he wanted the song to go. Reminded me of when someone said to Ray, the road manager on David’s Christmas tour, oh, you’re the one in charge, and Ray said, no, the kid’s in charge. I loved it.

    Lynne, yes the video was on tv. And the judges couldn’t get over a 16 (just had a birthday) year old singing like that about a woman! 🙂 He and David both know what they want and they can sing anything. (even the phone book as Randy said!)

    Last night I was watching a lot of Sawyers older videos and his voice was a lot higher, which is normal at a younger age. But it sure has gotten lower and more gritty in just a short time. He can sure belt it out, just like David can. I think David’s voice is more versatile though. Love the uniqueness of both their voices! He’s on again tomorrow! I even voted for him, which I never do anymore.

    Sure hope you get to see David live in concert one day. There is nothing like it. He is habit forming and you want more, more! 🙂 I know when I die and go to heaven, I’ll have had the best time traveling to see David’s concerts and meeting the greatest fans ever! I feel so blessed that I have been able to do things that I never ever dreamed of doing.

    And I’m sure you wont get kicked off the site! 🙂 But sometimes I feel the same way about myself. hehe

    Just saw on http://www.mjsbigblog.com that Sawyer is singing John Lennon’s Imagine tonight. I am freaked out. I think he’s courting the David Archuleta fans. I’ve heard him sing slow songs and emotional songs and do a good job, so this should definitely be interesting. Can’t wait. Of course, no one can match David’s version, but Sawyer isn’t trying to do David, and he has a totally different kind of voice, so I’ll try to listen with fresh ears and not expect to hear an imitation of David. Good luck Sawyer. I can like both versions.

    I wonder if Sawyer is familiar with David’s performance of Imagine on AI. I can’t help but think he is. Sawyer did a very good job on Imagine. He sings in a different style than David, but they both share an authenticity and vocal intensity that pulls you into the song.

    It was a very sincere performance, and I love both of them, but I really felt more in David’s performance. It was good to hear both of them sing the same song. That way I could evaluate which one I preferred for myself. I do enjoy Sawyer, but to me, David is still #1. However, having said that, I will still buy Sawyer’s music too. Now I have 2 adopted grandsons instead of one.

    That would be the last song I would have ever wanted Sawyer to sing because of the reasons we know why. I don’t want to start comparing David to Sawyer because there is just no good reason and yes we have invested our music time in David but once we start comparing we devalue Sawyer’s singing. His voice is changing right now as has been written as David’s did and that was really a risky song to sing. At times and maybe always now, David stays away from the very high notes that he once sang. I was so nervous for him when I read from Lynnella that he was going to be singing Imagine. I thought oh no they will start comparing the two. I thought that Sawyer owned ‘Trouble’ and the other songs that he sang. This was not his song. I remember a Beatle’s song that David forgot a whole line and it was not his song. I respect them both and thoroughly enjoy Sawyer not just for the song he sings but for his whole demeanour and uncomplicated life. I really need someone in my life that is not complicated!!

    Until David is back in the entertainment business, fingers crossed, we might enjoy other singers too!

    Sandybeaches, I know what you meant about being nervous for Sawyer. Again, I didn’t get to watch the rehearsal, I got a phone call, but got off in time for the performance. I don’t think David and Sawyer should be singing the same types of songs. Their voices are so different. I could never imagine David singing a Man of Constant Sorrow, but Sawyer kills that one. Yet, given all that, I think Sawyer did a decent job on the song. It’s like comparing apples and oranges. It just comes down to which you prefer. I happen to like both. There’s room at the table for both of them. Recalling that We Can Work It Out moment with David, I was never really relaxed watching him compete after that. I was so nervous that he would forget his lyrics. I don’t feel that way with Sawyer. He has a much more laid back demeanor, even though he’s a year younger than David was. They’re both babies (David back then not now). I know they’re both driven to sing and it’s in both of their souls, like Randy said of David, you were born to do this, and I think Sawyer was too. I almost think they should raise the age limit to at least after high school. It just seems like too much pressure to be putting on these kids. No matter how talented they are, it’s just too much. Just my opinion.

    Voted all my votes for Sawyer, Lynnella

  99. Lynnella…You are so right and you said if quite nicely. I really can’t think that DAVID would sing the songs Sawyer has so far. Imagine seemed very short and he could have had background instruments but maybe he wanted it that way.

    I think that my fear was that everyone would start comparing the two with tonight’s choice of song. Well nothing to fear now it has been done.

    Do they ever get to sing two songs? His time on stage was so short seeing it was 2 hours long. . A John Denver song would have been great especially where he plays the guitar and plays it so well. Imagine didn’t seem to say enough for him.

    Sandybeaches, I don’t remember if they get to sing 2 songs or not. This was a rather abbreviated version. I don’t know if he picked the song or if Pharrell did. I saw on mjsbigblog that the last talley they showed Kimberly was #11 and Sawyer #12 on iTunes sales and they were the highest from the Voice on the charts. I’m sure Sawyer has no worries about going through to next week. But, it’s like most everyone else stepped it up and he took a step back. Maybe next week he’ll take heed. I voted online for him. My days of dialing like a maniac are over. David finished me off on that. John Denver would be good music for him. I saw someone on comments somewhere who said he is this generation’s Bob Dylan. Not that he’s trying to revolutionize everyone, but that he has that type of voice and effect on people. We’ll see. I know there are at least 2 or 3 DA fans who have taken notice.
