All About That Voice ~ David Archuleta by Skydancer

Posted by bebereader on Monday, July 27, 2015

Along with David’s music, the catchy tune “All About That Bass”, Meghan Trainor’s mega-hit gets played the most on  my Iphone.  It’s just plain fun to sing along to! Thought I would parody the song into some silly lyrics as we wait for David Archuleta to return to the stage in his first solo concert in years! Woot! I, for one, am ready to get pumped!

Here’s a link to when Meghan performed the song live on The Today Show.

For us, of course, it’s not all about that bass.

Rather, it’s “All About That Voice”.

Listen to the song again and try to replace the lyrics with these:

Because you know it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice, no other!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice whoa brother!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice, oh mother!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice..voice..voice..voice

 

Oh yeah it’s pretty clear, we ain’t no twenty-two

But we can shake it, shake it, just like we used to do

‘Cause he’s got that vroom vroom that all the girls chase

and all the right notes, in all the right places

 

We see your pictures, don’t need no Photoshop

We know that you’re for real, (you’re on our desktop)

You’ve got the talent talent,  just raise it up,

‘Cause every note you sing is perfect from the bottom to the top

 

Now Aunt Madeline she told me don’t worry about the years

if you sit back and wait for life’s pleasures you’ll soon be in tears

So enjoy all you can while you can, and don’t have no fears

Just remember the joy that The Voice always brings to your ears!

 

Because you know it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice, it’s soothing,

all about that voice ’bout that voice, it’s moving,

I’m all about that voice ’bout that voice, so sue me!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice

 

Please bring the music baaaaack!

we know that you’ve laid down some traaaaacks

Perhaps a little hint or two?

No, I’m just playin, but we’d love it, I’m just sayin’

if we heard a snippet soon :D

 

Now we all know it’s clear oh so “patient” your fans have been  

As we wait for the day when you sing to us all again

we all know you have grown, a new you you’ve brought home, that’s true.

What you sing we don’t care, just please sing anywhere you choose!

 

Because it’s all about that voice, ’bout that voice from Season 7

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice,  just heaven,~sigh~

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice not kiddin’!

its all about that voice ’bout that voice

Yeah Yeah

 

Because it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice, hooked on it

it’s all about that voice, ’bout that voice, our tonic!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice doggone it!

it’s all about that voice ’bout that voice!

You know you love it!

RIP JENNIFER LEIGH BARRY

RIP JENNIFER LEIGH BARRY

We want to give our condolences to the Barry family and friends for their loss.  Jen was a kind and genuine person.  I had the opportunity to meet her and spend some time chatting with her at the Sounds of David event.  She was full of life, warm and friendly, so easy to talk to.  But most of all you can see her spirit through her work.  The links below are filled with Jen’s quotes, pictures and thoughts.  Not only of David but all things of beauty through her eyes.  You can also see the prayers and condolences from all over the world, including David.  May she rest in peace.

Because of David and because of David fans, I am where I am in my photography today!!  I always tell David that he has truly been an inspiration to me in my photography and when he sent me a signed photo back that he was happy I was pursuing my photography and to keep it up, it made my day.  However, David fans were also the ones that provided the amazing and positive feedback on my photos of David and non-David photos that helped me gain confidence in my abilities.  Thank you for all your support!!!”  ~Jennifer Leigh Barry

A Fresh Start ~ David Archuleta

Posted by Abrra on Tuesday, June 16, 2015

greyaaasketcharchuleta_zps213d1f77

I saw on Twitter that the Soul Davidian site is taking a Summer break.  I am using this opportunity to reinforce our resolve to keep going through the lean times. While the David-related news has gone down to almost nil, fans still want to feel the connection. That’s why we’re still here; although I will admit that there are times when it is a difficult task to maintain a fan site based on commentary, rather than news. Our primary purpose is to provide a place for fans to comment and share their take on current events in David Archuleta’s career.

David was an unknown singer who virtually dropped from the television screen into our hearts. Back in the post American Idol days we had so much to discover about him and his music. Some would say we got too close to that young man who was so eager to share many facets of his life with fans. We were just as eager to find out every minute detail of his day, both personal and career-related.

And then he announced that he was going on a mission for his church.

At that time a few fan sites dropped out. Some said it was out of respect for David’s request for privacy during that time. What followed on the sites left standing was an uncertainty about what we could say or publish about his mission activity. The final shakeout was that pictures or videos were not allowed unless they were of public appearances.

And so the drought began.

Through this time we navigated our way along choppy waters of fans who agreed to disagree on what was appropriate to talk about in relation to his mission experience. We became aware that David was a celebrity even as an Elder in Chile. His brother Elders wrote in their personal blogs about the respect they had for him both as a missionary and as a singer. We were hungry for any news, if only to know that David was happy with his experience. The videos from Chile of Christmas concerts sustained the fan base over the two years. Counting down the days until his return was something that kept us motivated to stay on the course.

But the payoff upon his return to Utah was not what most had anticipated. Realizing that there is a period of adjustment for returning missionaries, patience became a word we used often. Other than a few seconds of video from the airport, there was silence. So much silence that some frustrated fans took to Twitter in order to force David out to speak about what he was planning next. In response, David posted this video on his You Tube channel:

This is not the David Archuleta, the boy, we knew. This is a man who tells us he has gained his life back on his terms. He will now take the time to make music at his pace, without pressure to get it done fast and not be to his liking. It has been over a year since we got a glimpse of the man who is David Archuleta.

“I am still trying to unravel all of the knots that have been in my brain. I was so overwhelmed last time I was in the spotlight in front of all of you. I felt like I lost myself as I got caught up in trying to please everyone, because I disregarded what I cared about–what I thought.

It’s nice not having to keep trying to figure out how be something that I am not so that everyone will like whatever that is. I have come to realize that no matter what you will never make everybody happy, but you can make the most lasting impact on being yourself, and most of all out of all the people it will impact you are the one who is most impacted for the better. For the longest time, I tried to keep it on the down-low of who and how I really was because “I must not be likeable”, but it feels nice to just be who I am and live according to what has always been most important to me.” ~ David Archuleta

“What I am basically trying to say is I need silence in order to function. My quiet time is valuable to me. Everyone keeps asking me how things are in Nashville. I say “It’s really nice. It’s quiet.” Part of this is because I have decided to make this quiet time for me, but also this town is a place where I feel peace.” ~ David Archuleta

It seems that everything about the past has changed with respect to public performances and his participation on social media. This is what we can expect from David Archuleta going forward. The pace of his career will be more of a balance between his desire to have a personal life and his devotion to his craft. This is, in a sense, a fresh start for a new self-confident David who knows who he is and where he is going.

Knowing Your Truth ~ David Archuleta

Posted by Abrra on Saturday, June 6, 2015

jPaleFOD

sketches by @jPaleFOD

This is a partial drawing of David Archuleta by @jPaleFOD who posted it on Twitter. Even though it is unfinished, it gave me so much to think about. The Shakespeare quote, “The Eyes are the windows to your soul” came to mind, as the eyes are the most prominent feature in this sketch of David.  Sketch: “a simply or hastily executed drawing or painting, especially a preliminary one, giving the essential features without the details.” (Definition by Dictionary.com.)  I was also struck by the impression that this image could reveal or even represent where David is, in his journey back to a professional career.

Being away from the normal existence of family and friends can bring on a feeling of isolation.  The rest of the world is absent in your day to day life.  Even if you are in a place where you have a purpose, such as a mission for your faith, it can be difficult to feel a connection to what had meant the most to you before.  Responsibility for guiding others on a path that you know well, but one that they may not grasp right away, can bring you into unfamiliar territory.  Doubt is your constant  companion.  How do you get someone to believe as you believe when they do not yet have the same touchstones in faith? Are you equipped with adequate words to bring them into your fold?  In the end, will you ever know if you made a difference in their lives?

Have you changed how you view the way things are? Your growth in all areas is a sign that you have learned some lessons about trusting your intuition. These are life lessons that come from experiences not taught by books, but by interacting with people whose actions need deciphering. You have gained the maturity to know who is on your side, and those who only want something from you.  A life once lived in a bubble may not relate to a life now lived in harsh reality. You experience so much of life surrounding you that seems fake. Your craft could be the only thing you trust. It is the one true constant. Regardless of the isolation you now feel inside your craft, it sustains your creative nature. It is one of the things you trust to carry you forward in your life. There is no hesitation where music is concerned. You are a believer in the power and emotion that takes over your being when you sing.

jpalefod1

Knowing your truth is the first step on your journey back to your true calling of music.  You discovered that what you accomplished on your mission of faith is tied closely to your mission of music. It is the belief in yourself and the confidence of the powers of your craft that sustains you and will carry you forward. Using your voice to touch those willing to feel the emotion and be healed, is your Gift. Use it wisely David, and all your heartfelt dreams will be realized.

Historical Colonial Theater

Colonial - Deep Love

Built by C.A. Spath, cashier of the Farmers and Merchants Bank; Dr. C.M. Cline, physician and S.K. Mittry, contractor: the Colonial Theater opened on November 10, 1919, at a cost of just over $175,000. It boasted one of the largest stages in the Intermountain West, a modern ramp (in lieu of stairs) to the balcony, a ventilation system, which circulated fresh air every five minutes and superb acoustics. Traveling vaudeville acts and minstrels entertained, as well as musical acts like John Phillips Sousa.

In 1929, it was renamed the Paramount Theater and began showing moving pictures. Sadly, it fell into disrepair in the late 1980’s and was closed.

In 1994, Dick Clayton, Sr. and his son Steve donated the theater to the Idaho Falls Arts Council, a private nonprofit organization.

The Idaho Falls Arts Council launched a capital campaign, known as the Phantom project. An anonymous donor challenged the community to raise half of the total cost and the Phantom would donate the remaining. The successful $4.2 million dollar campaign renovated the Colonial Theater and the adjacent buildings into a beautiful visual and performing arts center for the region.

Renamed for the Phantom donors, Miles and Virginia Willard, who also chaired the campaign, the Willard Arts Center now contains a visual arts building with galleries, classrooms, artist studios, meeting spaces for events, and much more.

Today the 988 seat Colonial Theater is one of three large theaters of historical significance which still remain in Idaho. In 2014 alone, the Colonial Theater played host to over 25,000 patrons.

Melodies Of Life ~ David Archuleta ~ by Staff Writer, MT

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, May 27, 2015

mt1a (1)credit 8throwcenter

As I was thinking about the music David is writing and wondering what the music and lyrics will be like, I began mentally going through the albums he’s done.

The first was done with songs written primarily by others, but the second one, “The Other Side Of Down”, was filled with songs that David took part in writing. From what he’s told us, those songs are about his life and his struggles during that time. When he did the cover album “BEGIN.”, before he left, it was filled with songs meant to help others. It reflected his current mind set just before his mission.

David is now at a new stage in his life. The songs on the next album will most likely reflect where he is at this point in his life. If he continues to write his own songs, we’ll probably see all the stages of his life reflected in his music through the years, thus the inspiration for the following poem …

The Music Of Life

The music of life moves endlessly
Changing as it goes
What each stage of life will bring
No one ever knows

I will not be tomorrow
The person I am today
My song will change, as does my life,
So hear me when I say …

I cannot know what melody
Tomorrow’s love will bring
Or how events will follow me
As I raise my voice to sing

I’ll sing of precious moments
I’ll sing of the joy of life
I’ll sing of the pain that loss can bring
or sing of the afterlife

These melodies of events in life
Are what I have to give
They’ll change with time, the same as I
Evolving as I live

Take all these things I share with you
As I sing along the way
I’m giving you a piece of me
In the melody I play
