 David Archuleta’s “#minivlogger” latest instagram just because🙂

davidarchie I’m just sitting at my gate in LAX waiting for my flight to take off and then think “…Why can I hear myself? Is someone messing with me?” It’s funny when everyone you’re around is listening to you and they don’t know it’s you. Probably don’t even notice nor care to be honest but It’s still kinda funny. I wish I could do that in real life–just sing in the airport all I want out loud and know one knows or cares. 🎤#lax#airport#crush#minivlogger

As always, hoping for videos, pictures any news from the events🙂

Christmas concert dates and Venues announced!

 I’ll be adding ticket sale information as it becomes available in the thread.  You can also check David’s OS or his booking agency Windish.

davidarchie we decided to go with Chinese food in Wisconsin. But here’s why: Kari couldn’t go to China and Taiwan so we’re doing it in honor of her. 😀

TIMEOUT FOR WOMEN

DAVID ARCHULETA

David Archuleta gained worldwide recognition as a musician when he was just 16. In 2008 more than 30 million television viewers fell in love with his angelic voice and made him runner-up in Season 7 of the popular US competition “American Idol.” David credits his parents with shaping his musical style which he began to cultivate when he was very young. He won the children’s division of the Utah Talent Competition when he was just ten, and the Junior Vocal Champion award on Star Search 2 when he was 12. Since his time on American Idol, David has been a guest performer with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, topped billboard charts and released six studio albums including, “David Archuleta– Glad Christmas Tidings”, and “Begin”.

In 2012, David put his singing career on hiatus so he could serve as a full-time missionary in Santiago, Chile and described his experience of the mission as “a dream come true.” David returned from Chile in March 2014 and has since traveled to the Middle East to perform for U.S. troops, recorded the song “Glorious” for the recently released “Meet The Mormons” movie, and been busy writing songs for a new album that will be released in 2016.

David Archuleta ~ #Shanghai #shanghaibabyshome #China #orphans #Littlesnow

Posted by djafan on Monday, August 22, 2016

shanghai

One of the highlights of our time in Shanghai was getting to visit the Shanghai Baby’s Home. It was started to help kids in orphanages who need lifesaving treatment. It was touching. These littlest ones are people who can’t help themselves. I’m amazed by Daisy and the Shanghai Baby’s Home crew who constantly are fighting to help these kids’ lives. So glad that the Cook Family brought us here! It reminds me that I need to be grateful that I’ve had a home and a family who has taken care of me. We played in the play room and made forts. The kids saw my phone though and seemed to know that there may be some games on there. 😳😅. They immediately found a Disney game that I whip out from time to time. Glad we could all share a love for Disney. Link to their Facebook will be in my bio.#Shanghai #shanghaibabyshome#China #orphans

I had to post one more. This is little Snow. She has a congenital heart defect and lives at the Shanghai Baby’s Home. She has had one operation and is going to need another one. It was awesome getting to play with her for a little while trying to show her pictures of a cat. She was more interested in the paper cover though. I guess it had a shine to it that she preferred over the pictures. 😂 Photo Credit: Daisy at Shanghai Baby’s Home #Shanghai#shanghaibabyhome #orphan #China#Littlesnow

 

This needed a place of its own.

Official lyrics

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4

Tell me how to do it and I do/
Fuelin my ambition like I’m filling up a pool/
Aint my choice but its up to me to choose
Hammered out my goals like I’m working with my tools/

On the same page like da headline news
even jimmy fallon couldn’t shake me out my roots/
best foot forward like we dancing wit a groove/
we gone stay grinding till We all make a move\

Said are you gonna find it , baby my way
Are we gon grind or are we gon play
We gon give it time never gonna wait
Said it either black or white but no grey

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4

We could only win never loose/
Cause the only thing we ever share be da truth
We gon feed the fire till its burnin down the roof
Focus on ya heart cause the feels be the proof

Yeah cause my soul lighting up like a fuse.
Always down to share never “thats our food”
shoulder to the wheel like a nascar
crew
Head in the word baby thats our school

Are you gonna find it baby my way
Are we gon grind or are we gon play
We gon give it time never gonna wait
Said it either black or white but no grey

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4

From davidarchie‘s instagram: I know I’ve been away for a bit. I needed a break from social media to get focused again. It’s interesting how distracting checking comments and likes can be. It’s also draining. I needed to get back into remembering how I felt about myself and not caught up in what everyone else thought of me (good or bad). Hope y’all can understand. Been in the studio the last couple of weeks finishing up songs with@casoncooley. It has felt great working with him so far! I’m feeling good about these songs. In the meantime, Here’s a throwback photo to when we went to Pula, Croatia.

Here is @casoncooley’s IG link  https://www.instagram.com/casoncooley/?hl=en

Thank you Abrra!

David Archuleta Guests with Marie Osmond, Nashville Tribute Band & Alex Boye

Posted by djafan on Saturday, July 9, 2016

redeemer concert

Two free interfaith concerts in Nampa, ID

Marie Osmond, David Archuleta and Alex Boyè will join the Nashville Tribute Band in Nampa next month to present the non-denominational musical celebration, “Redeemer.”

Two free shows will be held July 9 at the Ford Idaho Center, hosted by Christian Outreach Multimedia Events. The shows will benefit Idaho food banks by encouraging attendees to bring a canned food donation.

Last summer was the first year the Nashville Tribute Band and Marie Osmond visited Nampa. The Redeemer concert drew an audience of over 10,500 and more than 8,000 pounds of food was collected for 18 Idaho food banks. Multiple Christian faiths across the Treasure Valley came together.

Rehearsals.  Please let there be videos.

 

And David, well being David.

Hope you all have an incredible and safe fourth of July from everyone here at The Voice. David blessed us with a beautiful rendition of “God Bless America” at his recent concerts and nothing is better than David Archuleta singing patriotic songs.  The audio in this one is beautiful.

Tawna’s VIP Experience in Orem with David Archuleta

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, June 21, 2016

I had an amazing time on Monday night!  I felt like I had a hangover the next day.  From waiting for the VIP to start to the last (😦) song was sung, it was one of those experiences that is forever etched into the memory books in my brain.

I talked with David for a minute during our photo time about the small VIP experience, and he is love, lovin’ it. He was a constant smile as he explained that it’s just so much more fun that the huge crowded ones. He feels like he can spend a few intimate (his words) moments with those who are there. It seemed like he wanted to talk longer, but I was feeling the push of the people behind me, so I cut short what probably could have gone longer. I mentioned that with the smaller crowds he didn’t have to smile as much for the photo ops. He laughed, and then said, ‘True, but I love to smile’. I told him that it’s obvious he loves to smile, and we can feel it.

I’m just wondering why it is that when he automatically puts his arm around my waist for a photo, that I don’t do the same to him. I really did think about that when  it  happened. I just could not make myself put my arm around him; not that I didn’t want to just grab him and give him a great big grandma hug. So, to avoid feeling like I would be invading his personal space, my arms hung at my side.

Oh. My. Gosh. Being in his presence, in his space, breathing the same room air, and sweating right there with him; well, no words! I really feel like this VIP was way better than any I’ve been to before now. It is so obvious that David is comfortable with who he is and the person he has become. It brings tears to my eyes to think that he was so close to quitting it all.

Even on the stage, he has morphed into another being, ever since his Arizona shows in the early Spring. He dances, he hunkers down, he swings or sways, or just stands there and looks beautiful, and boy can he do that (even with sweat running down his face). The glory notes have become more glorified. His heart and soul are ours for that, all-too-brief time.

He has decided that he can spill it out there for us, that we will sponge it up, and drink it in — never feeling quite full, but somewhat satisfied for a short time. He is setting the beat of the drum to which he moves. It must feel so liberating to know that he is the one who can do that; no Powers That Be to be pulling the strings anymore (yeah, Who I Am). I’m sure there are things that have to be dealt with (booking agency, lawyers, managers), but not like it was before. He’s been able to surround himself with folks that support him.

And, the band! What a great group of guys! I could take any one of them home in my pocket and enjoy having them there. They are so fun to be around. While we were standing around waiting,  they’d come up and introduce themselves and ask our names, and interact with us.  I loved it!

One of the most adorable moments of the night. David had just finished singing a song and while mopping his face (why will he not use a towel to get the job done properly?), said “Wow, I’m hot”. Squeals from the crowd, a big David smile, and not missing a beat, he said, “But I guess we’re all hot tonight, right?”. He had the crowd in the palm of his sweaty, large, piano-playing hands (with the most shapely long fingers – yes, I’ve admired them).

Next most adorable moment.  There was the cutest little girl on the front row who was holding her hand out during “Touch My Hand”. I had seen David watch her and kind of pay attention to her (he seems to know what it means to those special people with Downs Syndrome), up until that point.

Then, he went right over to her, stooped down to touch her hand (he actually grabbed a hold of it), and give her the most endearing smile one could ever imagine. That little girl jumped into the air, whirled around and raised both arms into the air in victory. It’s actually on one of the videos, but I don’t remember just who captured it.

BriRay was so fun. He needs to keep her on board. She’s delightful, and has some pipes that work very well with David’s. *just sayin’*
