INVINCIBLE ~ From the album ‘Postcards In The Sky’

Invincible Lyrics

I started a war
Sent out the battle cry
And I’ve been here before
Fighting me, myself and I
When I try to prove that I’m never gonna lose
I push too hard
I push too far
Try to be brave ‘til it’s more that I can take
So many times
‘Til I realize

Take a breath
Look at how you’re trying to think it to death
When you’re in the crossfire don’t forget
That you don’t have to be invincible
Take a step
Even if you fall it ain’t over yet
If you’re in the crossfire don’t forget
That you don’t have to be invincible
Ooh, Ooh

I counted to ten
Stepped back so I could see
How bad it can get
When I’m the enemy

I put my weapons down
Until I found a better way, a better way
I’ll never change if I’m too afraid to break
Got to let it go, let the whole world know to

Chorus

Bridge:
You’ll never know
Never know how strong you are
‘Til you’re strong enough to let your armor fall

  • davidarchie  Every 6 months I take a little weekend break, wherever I might be, to listen to my church’s world conference. Yesterday I was able to attend in person. My heart hurts hearing about another shooting in Vegas. In a world where so much is going on, with natural disasters, shootings, hate, wars, depression and anxiety, fears, and so many other things going on we ask ourselves “Where can I turn for peace? Where is my solace?” That’s what speaker Jean B Bingham talked about in the conference yesterday morning. Sometimes it’s hard to trust. But there is a source of healing, and that is from Christ. Jean Bingham also mentioned there is a way to become free from the constraints of our own misunderstanding. Well, how? One way I’ve gained it is watching and listening to men and women of God in these conferences. I loved how a big emphasis was on trust and to “lean not unto [our] own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) my love is with the victims of the recent Vegas shooting, and also with the many still recovering from the natural disasters. I’m left asking however (as powerful as prayer is) what more can I do than just thinking about them and praying. Let’s allow sad things to bring us together, become united and do something to help others. May our prayers turn us to action. We can be the helping hands and the light in even the darkest times of an other’s life. If you’d like to watch a talk from the conference, I’m putting the link in my bio today. #trust#thoughts #ldsconf #jeanbbingham#prayforlasvegas

David Archuleta ~ Chasing The Unattainable Dream by Kristin Rivers

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, September 26, 2017

credit Pamela Pike

Thank you Kristin for sharing your gift of writing with us.

How many times in life have we struggled to achieve a dream that seems unattainable? How many people told you to give up the dream placed on your heart or forget a goal that you know will change or better your life?

Since I was a teenager, one of my biggest dreams was to see and meet my favorite musician and role model, David Archuleta. I have had my share of people tell me to face the reality of ever meeting him. I’ve been told to give up, get over it and not get hopes up. No matter what dreams we have, the naysayers will come knocking with their comments, personal opinions and “helpful” commentary. Some still don’t realize how much words can hurt as much as actions.

With my dream about Archuleta, I almost gave up last year. A Christmas tour that didn’t have concerts near me…did me in. I was left devastated, heartbroken, angry and beyond tired of the waiting. With having other things going on in my life at the time, that made the blow even harder to swallow. I had to stop talking to some fans because I couldn’t deal with their excitement, leaving fansites I used to go on and ignored videos shared on YouTube and social media. It felt easier to distance myself so I wouldn’t lash out at other people. I was really losing my faith and asking God why I had to wait longer for something I wanted so badly, feeling yet again that my dream was stupid and that I should have given up a long time ago. The words of the past haunted my mind and distracted me from what my heart was trying to say: don’t quit.  There was still a part of me that dared to hope, a stubbornness that said not to quit just yet. Many of us have been told, or heard, about how people give up just when their dream would finally come to pass.

I just wanted to quit, accepting that maybe it will never happen until I was older and living closer to where he would have a concert. At times, we have to put dreams on hold until we’re better off financially, someone encourages us to just do it and stop letting life pass by or our focus is for other people in our lives than our own.

Earlier, I mentioned how words can hurt people. But I think we forget how words can also heal and help, especially when you least expect it. A joke to a friend over email one night In December 2016 created an opportunity that left me crying in bed the following morning and one step closer to that impossible dream finally becoming reality. Yet, the following months were still laced with bitterness, brokenness and hopelessness. I was so focused on what I didn’t have that I forgot what I did have. When you wait so long…you feel really defeated, other times broken and a shadow of your former self and still feel the temptation to walk away and accept things as they are.

This past weekend in Worcester, MA, the dream came true.  Sitting front row with some amazing fans and surrounded by 1,000 people, we waited in anticipation for what the many speakers, besides Archuleta, would share with all of us……and there he was. The moment David Archuleta came out at the beginning of the conference to sing “Glorious”…things got real for me. After seven long years…I was watching this remarkable, God-fearing man perform his heart out and inspire everyone present with his words before my own eyes. There was some laughter, plenty of smiles and moments where I was close to tears. During each break, I would be left speechless at everything: not just David but everyone else who spoke and shared their stories with all of us. Brad Wilcox talking about grace and reading to his grandson, Alissa Parker’s brave story about her late daughter, Emilie, who died at Sandy Hook in 2012 and many, many more.

In case you were wondering “So, did she get to meet him?”

Yes, I did. My lips are sealed at this point though! But, I can say this: he was worth the long wait…and boy does he know how to surprise people. David, if you happen to be reading this I think you know what I’m referring to.

I want people who read this to know your dreams are never impossible or unattainable. Sometimes they just take a little more time than other goals we want to achieve. They require holding on to hope when you feel you just can’t anymore, having faith and trust in whatever higher power you believe in and A TON of patience. If there’s anything David has taught his fans over the years, it’s patience.

Thank you for listening and reading, and don’t give up on those dreams just yet.

David Archuleta ~ The Troubadour Concert Experience, NO WORDS.

Posted by djafan on Sunday, July 23, 2017

 

I can’t believe it’s been a month since the Troubadour concert.  The memories are still so vivid, I can play the videos and it takes me right back to that night.  I’m so glad David’s Aunt Laurie convinced me to leave the balcony and experience the GA energy. The venue told me the balcony seats were on a first come basis, but told me not to worry there wouldn’t be a line for this concert, WHAT?! Well as you can see picture below there was quite the line and they looked a tad surprised.  After leaving the balcony I made it right to the front, I could reach out and touch his feet lol,  I have been to many many David concerts over the last 10 years and nothing had prepared me for the Troubadour.  David was singing the best I’d ever heard him sing and the energy in the entire place was alive, the electricity traveling back and forth from us to him and from him to us was unreal.  The look on his face every time we sang his new songs back to him, even I’m Ready one that he hasn’t released yet, the joy and love oozed out of him. The love fest at the end with all the high fives, the selfies, his reaching out so far almost falling into the crowd on several times.  David used all the arms reaching out to him for support leaning in, it was incredible.

I’ve included the limited videos I took, I just couldn’t stay still!  And a few pictures I took and some are Monica’s, thank you Monica!  Just look at those pictures, watch the videos, not the best quality but you can FEEL it all.  I’m so ready to do this again!!!

Up All Night and David became one on this night.  I had seen all the videos and there was something missing, but wow did he kick it out of the stratosphere, “moving” and all like he calls it.  I’m highlight it here.

David Archuleta to perform in Pocatello on Friday

By Courtney Johnson cjohnson@journalnet.com

POCATELLO — Pop star David Archuleta will perform at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre on Friday night.

The gates open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets for Friday’s performance can be purchased at smithstix.com.

Archuleta found his fame at age 16 when he was the runner-up on the seventh season of “American Idol.

Archuleta didn’t always have plans to become a music artist. Throughout his childhood, he wanted to be zookeeper, a dentist and even a social worker. Even though he kept changing his mind, he always knew that he wanted to connect to people in some way.

Obviously, Archuleta didn’t become a zookeeper or a social worker, but he was able to find a special way of interacting with others.

“Music is way to connect with people,” Archuleta said. “I’ve always wanted to connect with people, to tell stories and hear peoples stories, and I get to do that through writing songs.”

Last month, Archuleta released his latest EP, Orion. The Orion EP has four new songs that were inspired by events in his life that left an impression on him.

“This new music is basically written from my journey of the last several years of my life,” Archuleta said. “From becoming an artist and performing on ‘American Idol’ to touring and making albums to then doing a complete 180 turn by going to South America to be a missionary, I have this new perspective on life and I’ve written about it.”

Archuleta plans to release one more EP before he releases a full album later this year. By releasing two EPs, he is able to get a feel for how his fans will react to his new music.

“I want my fans to like the music, but I also want to see how they feel about the story and message,” Archuleta said. “I am trying to get a feel of how people will respond and react.”

When Archuleta isn’t touring and writing music, he admits to sometimes wasting too much time watching videos on YouTube like Studio C. He also loves to find new restaurants on Yelp and try them out with friends and family.

Since his run on “Idol,” Archuleta has released seven of his own albums including an appearance as a guest star on The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s holiday album, “David Archuleta — Glad Christmas Tidings.”

“I seriously love food,” Archuleta said.

Archuleta is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and likes to show his fans all facets of his life from spiritual moments he has throughout the day to which new restaurant he recently tried out.

“My religion helps shape how I live my life and it helps give me so much fulfillment and happiness so I had to learn how to be open about all aspects of my life,” Archuleta said.

At his performance, Archuleta will perform a number of his older songs that fans will know along with some of his newer music. He will also throw in a few cover songs from famous artists throughout the last few decades.

“I want people to feel good when they listen to my music,” Archuleta said. “But I also want them to feel like they can connect to something deeper, like a deeper version of themselves and a deeper part of life. That’s really the purpose of this new music being released.”

David Archueta to Showcase New  Music in Pocatello

By Erin Burke

David Archuleta is coming back to Idaho for a concert, featuring Nathan Pacheco.

They will be performing in Pocatello at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre on Friday, June 16 at 8 p.m.

On Wednesday, two days before the concert in Pocatello, he was enjoying his day off by traveling and resting at truck stops. For weeks, he said he has been practicing his songs on a daily basis with very few breaks.

Archuleta’s newest EP, Orion, was released on May 19, according to davidarchuleta.com. He said he plans to perform some well-known songs from his previous projects and old albums, songs from his new EP and a new song which has not been released yet.

“The song I’ll be singing that I haven’t released yet is a preview of what is yet to be released,” Archuleta said.

He said he is releasing his next EP within a month or so, then he is releasing an album later this year.

Archuleta said he wants to come closer to God through his tour, so he likes to start every concert and writing session with a prayer.

“I remember one time a (songwriter said) that with the twenty years (he’s) been in the business, (he’s) never started a writing session with a prayer,” Archuleta said. “He said that was special.”

He then asked the writer if he wanted to say a prayer to end the session. He said the writer said he did not think he knew how to pray. Archuleta said he told him to say what was in his heart.

“He bowed his head, and he just started talking to God and thanking Him,” Archuleta said. “Afterwards, he was like, ‘I have goosebumps.’”

One of Archuleta’s greatest motivations for creating his new music has been the experiences he has had over the past seven years of his life.

Archuleta said, “After coming back from my mission in Chile, I had such a new perspective on everything.”

Orion, in specific, is a showcase of the perspective he has gained over the years.

He said these new songs are full of things he wants people to know. He has hopes that his songs will inspire people to stay strong because there have been times when he has felt not good enough or not known how to move forward.

Archuleta said he thinks those at BYU-Idaho may feel like they are not good enough and that his songs from Orion will help students to remember their worth. Sometimes students feel pressured to be perfect and that they cannot show any weakness because Christ said to be perfect.

“Christ said to be whole, to be complete,” Archuleta said. “He didn’t say that you can’t be flawed.”

Archuleta said he is coming to Pocatello because he has been there before and enjoyed connecting with audience members of the southeastern Idaho region.

“I want people to leave feeling better and lighter—feeling better about themselves and feeling motivated to keep moving forward in life,” Archuleta said.

Archuleta’s first single “Crush,” debuted at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week the singe released. Archuleta’s first album, “David Archuleta,” went gold, and sold more than 750,000 copies in the U.S. and more than 900,000 copies worldwide.
