David is performing in Slovenia, Croatia, and Serbia.  He has been sharing with us, his fans, the beautiful sights and letting us know what he’s going to be doing this weekend.  Hoping for videos, a Periscope (hint hint Kari) All will be appreciated.

David shared these words with the picture above on his instagram.

@davidarchie In Slovenia today. We have a show in Ljubljana, Slovenia tomorrow at the Ljubljana Opera House. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is partnering with the Slovenian Heart Organization to raise money for children’s needs with heart conditions here. The LDS church’s Adriatic North Mission invited me to be a part of it along with pianist Paul Cardall. Will we see any of you there??? Here is a picture from this morning visiting Bled Island at Lake Bled. 😍 #Slovenia #lakebled #bledisland#SlovenianHeartOrganization#AdriaticNorthMission

PERISCOPES VIA KARI!!!!!

I think Hillary will be finding herself very busy in the near future:)

Seems David is getting ready for Canada!  He will be going to Lethbridge, Alberta Canada

for a sold out Time Out For Women event on May 6 and 7!

I found this dress code instructions on the official TOFW website.  There are no restrictions on who could attend, including men.  I think that is very cool.

EVENT DRESS CODE: Nice casual attire is appropriate. Time Out For Women (TOFW) is an event, not a typical conference; Sunday dress is not expected or necessary.

Jan’s recaps: 3 David Archuleta concerts in 4 days!

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, April 3, 2016

Richfield
     “There he is!”  I was checking my phone for any David news as we were going into Richfield.  “He’s on the same highway that we are on, Dayzee!”  Sure enough after winding around a few roads, there were the same signs that were in David’s Instagram!  We are here!  Later there was more excitement to see him walk out on that stage with his big smile and waving.  Oh, the yelling, clapping, standing ovations; he had them all!
 
Like I’ve said, the whole world needs to hear that voice. It’s just something special to see him live…he has that “light”.  Got to meet up with Shawna and Patty again.  Hadn’t seen them since Motab. The big surprise was when Nathan came out and sang “The Prayer” with David.

 OMGosh, I never, ever thought I would get to see that live.  At the end, David had a little girl come on stage while he sang “Glorious”.

When leaving, I saw a bottle on stage and went down and got it with the help of a stage hand.  Thought I had a David bottle, but when I watched the video of them singing “The Prayer”, it shows Nathan taking a drink and sitting the bottle right down where I picked it up…so…it was Nathan’s water bottle and not David’s!  ;)  well, he’s second best!  LOL
 
On to Queen’s Creek – 1st concert
     There was an early dinner at Olive Garden before the concert where we met up with Kalei and her bunch.  It was Linda’s birthday and she was surprised to find out that she was going to meet David in person!  Awesome!
 
Dayzee’s and my seats were apart and I got to sit between some “fuddy duddies”!  *~X( at wits' end  No arm swinging with lighted cameras, no singing and swaying!  They might not have been in the swing of things, but it didn’t stop me!  haha.  The 3 on my right left when David left the stage.
 
What?  no encore??  How can anyone leave with David on fire!!!  But of course there was one!  It left me on a high all night!  He was so good!

Queen’s Creek – 2nd concert
     Gwen couldn’t make it, so Dayzee sat in her seat and Dayzee’s seat went to Victoria!  I sat next to SuzyQ and it was good to see her again.  Got to meet Pat and Sweetonda, Tawna and hubby, DJAfan and more.
 
After hearing “7 Years” live 3 times in a row, I give in!  David puts his all in that song, he is incredible! There is nothing like David feeding off the electric frenzy of the fans.  I felt like a teenager again!  It is with love that I listened to his little speeches before his songs that gives messages on him staying in music.  Don’t ever quit singing David!
 
 It was the night before Easter and I was hoping David would sing something special and he did!  It was beautiful.
 
credit 8throwcenter

 It was so new to him he read the words from his phone and sang it perfectly.  Feeling it in his heart, he was breaking down at the end as we all were.  Thank you David, you never let us down!

 What a joyous trip! It wouldn’t have happened without the super nice Dayzee doing all the driving!  😀

Dayzee’s recap from Arizona: “I Love David Archuleta Fans!”

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, March 30, 2016

CelzTTtWsAQxx6kcredit: Shelley

The first night in Arizona the gathering of fans began early at the Olive Garden. So great to have a group of people who don’t cut you off when you mention David. Haha

Screen-Shot-2016-03-25-at-9_05_59-PMAll photos property of Dayzee unless stated otherwise

Jan and I reached the venue an hour early and there were fans milling around everywhere. Met old friends, some we had not seen since the last time we were in Arizona (home of the infamous chair scooting incident). Some we had met at Tuacahn last fall. Seeing those familiar faces is just what you need when your tummy is full of butterflies and you are so high you can’t keep track of your tickets and keys.

doorDavid’s pic on the door

The door of the venue was covered with a pic of David and fans were standing in line to take photos of themselves with that David pic. Jan said when the line slowed down she would take a picture of that herself, but the line was constant and even longer after the performance.

Inside, Jan and I separated as we had bought our tickets separately. I was by myself but had a ticket for front row center. Yayy! As I found my seat a girl jumped up from the adjoining chair and said “I hope we don’t make too much noise for you.” LOL. As I got to know this new fan I realized she was pretty much the opposite of me. She was 18, I was 81. It was her first time to see David, it was about my fifty-first. We no doubt had little in common, yet here we were, side by side at a David concert.

I showed her some videos on my phone from the Richfield concert. She was quite excited at the thought of getting her own videos and promptly started taping. About half way through the show I told her I would have to stop because my phone was almost dead. She said, “No problem” and hooked me up with a power plug she had found right on the edge of the stage. What??? Arizona not only let you take all the video you wanted, but helped you power up. I love Arizona.

My new friend Nicole was absolutely delightful. She helped me get through “Everybody Hurts” and I helped her through “7 Years”. You know, sometimes David is just overwhelming and you need a hand to clasp or a thigh to squeeze.

As soon as David left the stage I helped Nicole jump up and she gathered set lists and water bottles, handing them to fans standing at the edge of the stage. Everyone loved her. She scampered from the stage, barely escaping the grasp of the stage police.

IMG_0131According the David, the way we will be watching him drink water now since he has decided it’s weird to have 700 people watch you drink

IMG_4733It makes me happy every time I open the refrigerator door.

Nicole came and gave me a hug the second night. Perhaps we will meet again when David visits Arizona. I will not worry about her because I know she has the very best role model. Makes me happy to know there are new young fans. How long can we old ladies carry this banner anyway?

I had not met SuzieQ before, but was fortunate to be sitting next to her on the second night. I loved her for the respect and enthusiastic admiration she showed David.

Remember all those one-armed hugs we used to get from David? They have evolved into two-armed hugs of appreciation that are shared by fans of all ages everywhere!

HAPPY 25TH BIRTHDAY DAVID ARCHULETA!

Posted by djafan on Sunday, December 27, 2015

WINDOW PICDavid Archuleta turns 25!25 CAKE

Turning 25 is considered a milestone.  An age where we seriously begin to ponder where we are in life and where we’re headed.  Throughout our lives, we make decisions for known and unknown reasons. These decisions lead us down new paths, take us new places, places where we meet new people and suddenly, the world shifts again. What was going to happen can no longer happen and what will slowly turns into what’s meant to be. One decision folds into the next, and our life lays out before us. Most days we can get so caught up in daily life that we don’t stop to think about how each decision leads us to the next opportunity or away from it.  Wherever we may find ourselves we hope for happiness, always.  David has lead by example on how to live by listening to his heart and soul for that voice, that feeling that guides him.  Whether we agree or not, it is his journey.  Here’s to many more experiences as David fans.

GREATEST 25

25th bday

Join us in celebrating David Archuleta’s 25th birthday by having WWTT party!

Tawna’s Been Thinking…About David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, December 20, 2015

Been thinking….

I’m so glad that I was able to witness David through his ‘growing’ years. The time when he was hanging onto the mic stand for dear life in his baggy pants and T-shirts. Oh, and the scarves.

345credit: Google Images

Then he became like a spring, bouncing around the stage carrying the mic with him, killing us with flirty eyebrows, and wearing better fitting  jeans and different kinds of shirts (there was that awesome pink shirt and still the scarves) and had the amazing hair styles.

tumblr_lopk7qnJGO1qg0bgio1_500art edit found on Tumblr – Ponds teen concert

But now, I’m perfectly content with who David is. What he has become. Still the handsome, humorous and witty David that we’ve been watching since 2007, but a man who is comfortable with who he is. A man who isn’t afraid to tell the world what he’s thinking and how he got to the point he is at now. A performer who has developed more fashion sense in the clothes he wears on stage (we’ve still seen some scarves:) ) and yet isn’t afraid to wear the most wrinkled shirt in the closet around town, if that’s the mood he’s in.

I do miss the amazing hair, but I also don’t mind the toned down look — he wears it well. With the head of hair he owns… wow!  I love when he uses the flirty eyebrows and points those long fingers, and dances little snippets of fancy footwork here and there. No bouncing around, but some seriously great stage presence (he owns it).

I’m just happy to be a fan of the most beautiful and versatile Voice on the planet. And, of the most beautiful, inside and out, honest man that owns that Voice. The Voice that is definitely a gift and a treasure. The Voice that David uses to make others happy and peaceful.

You bet, I’m a fan forever! ♥♥
