New Orion EP in May, West Coast Tour Kicks Off in June! ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, April 4, 2017

credit: davidarchuleta.com

From David’s Official Site:

“Platinum-selling singer David Archuleta is gearing up for the May 19th release of Orion, the first in a series of new EPs from the international pop star.

Inspired by lessons learned during his two-year missionary trip to Chile, “Numb” — the EP’s lead single, which premiered last November via Billboard — sets the tone for Orion’s mix of self-reflection and pop melody. The song was co-written by Archuleta, Trent Dabbs, and producer Jamie Kenney. “People really want to connect with what’s coming from someone’s heart, from their soul, and what they’re going through,” he tells Billboard. “I feel like [“Numb”] was that for me.”
Archuleta and Kenney teamed up for Orion’s follow-up single, too, co-writing “Up All Night” with Isabeau Miller and Shaun Balin. The song makes its debut on April 21st, roughly one month before the EP’s release.

Archuleta will support Orion’s arrival with a tour of the west coast and southwestern markets, kicking off with his June 1st appearance at the State Theatre in Red Bluff, California. A full list of performance dates is below.

Orion unveils Archuleta’s new sound, mixing his melodies and muscular vocals with stories about his life and recent experiences. It’s not his first album as an adult, but it may be his first truly adult album. Like the constellation that gives the EP its name, Orion burns brightly.
David’s West Coast Tour Dates are below (more to come!):

Thursday, June 1 — Red Bluff, CA – State Theatre
Friday, June 2 — Fresno, CA – Tower Theatre
Saturday, June 3 — Grants Pass, OR – Rogue Theater
Tuesday, June 6, 2017 — Bend, OR -Tower Theatre
Wednesday, June 7, 2017 — Sacramento, CA – Crest Theatre
Friday, June 9, 2017 — Portland, OR Alberta Rose Theatre
Monday, June 12, 2017 — Spokane WA – Bing Crosby Theater
Tuesday, June 13, 2017 — Seattle WA – Triple Door
Friday, June 16, 2017 — Pocatello ID – Portneuf Amphitheater
Saturday, June 17, 2017 – Layton, UT – The Kenley Ampitheater
Friday, June 23, 2017 — Snowflake AZ – Snowflake High School Auditorium
Saturday, June 24, 2017 — Safford AZ – David M. Player Center for the Arts

March Madness Sparks Plans as David Archuleta Draws Closer to Fans

Posted by MT on Sunday, March 2, 2014

Bench photoshoot/tumblr

Well, here we are! Over two years ago we sat in shock after hearing David’s announcement telling us that he would be gone from the music world, from our world, for two years. Even when we eventually reached the acceptance stage and understood his reasons for going, we still felt an uneasiness. “What would we do? What would happen without him for that long?” That was the reality that was sinking in for so many of us.

Each of us had our own reason for feeling the way we did. For some, David’s uplifting music was a balm for their souls that would be sorely missed. For others, he was a source of joy in a sometimes otherwise difficult life. Others would miss the friendships, the camaraderie, this fandom he created. Others would miss the live concert experiences. And for some, his vlogs made them happy in a way they still can’t explain. For each of those reasons and many more, we felt there would be a void that couldn’t be filled without him here. As great as videos are, and as grateful as we are that we had all those videos, they is just no substitute for the real thing. Yet, here we are.  Somehow we managed to make it to 2014.

Perhaps David understood how we felt. His working so hard before he left to leave us with a mini-series to watch, and new music to explore and savor, helped tremendously. The vlogs and photos shared by his team while he was gone helped too. And even though he was so many miles away, we were given the privilege of seeing him sing at Christmas both years, through the generosity of his church in making those events open to the public and posting videos online for all to enjoy.

It’s been a long two years and perhaps the hardest part is yet to come. These last days seem to be eerily quiet. We’ve spent the past two years looking back at all the amazing performance videos, those wonderful gifts from fans, remembering what a phenomenal talent he has always been. But it’s now so close that we’ve stopped looking back because the future is just over the horizon, almost within our grasp.

The videos we saw at Christmas show a David who is still the same and yet so very different at the same time. While we are no longer looking back, we have no idea what that future will bring. The excitement we feel about his return has us sitting on the fence between the past and the future, a future we know in our hearts will be bright and wonderful for David. How could it not be?

While we wait out the last days before his return, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the admins here at The Voice, and all of David’s fan sites, for their hard work in keeping us together for all these months and for making it so much fun!  Thank you for sharing the smiles, the laughter, and the tears these past two years.  And to all the fans who are still here, kudos for hanging in there! It will be worth the wait! It won’t be long now. We’re in the home stretch and it’s time to look ahead! Who’s ready for David?  Vlogs and videos and concerts, OH MY! What will YOU be doing to get ready for David’s homecoming?

adda

Here are a few of the things I’ve jotted down on my own “to do” list.

1. Check the piggy bank.

2. Tune up my engine. Include the car engine as well.  Road trip!!!

3. Shop for tour clothes.

4. Pull out all my David Archuleta shirts, jackets, pins, bracelets, etc. Put them all on and dance like nobody is watching. Make sure.

5. Sign up for ILAA which is now VIP Nation cuz you know I want that VIP ticket.

6. Review all the lyrics of David’s songs by playing all of his CDs and singing with him at the top of my lungs like nobody is listening.  Make sure.

7. Buy a new computer/IPad to watch David videos.

8. Buy a new camera to TAKE David videos.

9. Practice my chair-scooting!

10. Practice my salsa dancing!

11. Practice jumping in the event of zero gravity.

12. Practice breathing in the event of no air in my lungs from screaming and jumping and dancing and scooting.

13. Scrap #12 and invest in a portable O2 tank.  See if you can bundle a portable lifepak with it at a discount.

14. Get back on that diet!!

So.  What’s on your list?

David Archuleta ~ At the Sounds of David Event

Posted by djafan on Sunday, April 21, 2013

SOD PIC A

Sounds of David Luncheon and Fan Mixer

On Saturday April 6, 2013 a group of devoted fans got together in honor of David Archuleta and his music with the goal of benefiting Child Fund International and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, two children’s’ charities that David supports.

Pamela Pike did a terrific job arranging this event which I had the pleasure of attending!  We had a delicious buffet lunch consisting of grilled chicken and steak, together with greens and wonderful desserts.

I had a great time with Winnie, she’s lovely.  It was also great fun meeting up with known fans and meeting new ones.  I hope we can continue to have fan get-togethers.

Here are the highlights:

Mariners Elementary School Choir of Newport Beach sang for us.  It was a great surprise to hear them sing Nandito Ako, they were so cute.

Newport Platinum Dance Academy danced to Zero Gravity and My Kind of Perfect, some more cuteness.

photo (4)

Singer/Songwriter, Sunny Hilden emceed the event.  She has so much energy and spunk. Sunny handled the auction duties had us in stitches.  While auctioning off a large David poster she encouraged us by saying it could serve as a wrinkle remover lol.  I can see why she is David’s friend.  It was a privilege to have some words with her.  She is a genuine person.  She loves and admires David.  Sunny spoke of David throughout the event, sharing how she met him at the AI finale when Randy Jackson told a bunch of kids wanting to sing for him to go sing to Sunny, she’s a singer and songwriter, so they all went to her and sang.  David waited to the end.  She knew then he had something special and kept in touch with him. Sunny also shared with us a story about The My Kind Of Christmas poem David read to the kids on the Christmas tour.  They are actually part of the lyrics of a song by the same name she had never completed.  It has since been completed and Sunny read it to us.  She shared that the melodies in this song are beautiful.  She’s hoping and praying that David record’s it when he returns (I added to my list of prayers).

I was so excited to meet Michael Orland, Musical Director of American Idol.  He and I have some tweet history and I’ll never forget him saying “David came to us a genius and left a genius”.

Dorian Holley, AI vocal coach, spoke so highly of David and his time on American Idol. Noting how David in his quiet way stood his ground on things going on behind the scenes. Dorian mentioned how everyone liked David and that his work ethic was something else.

photo

Special video appearances by:

Rosanne Simunovic better known as Masterclass Lady who is a voice instructor also spoke highly of David and has a huge admiration for not only his voice but person.  She told the story of meeting David during AI tour in Canada.  That upon meeting and introducing herself to David he quickly asked her for help in regards to his singing, always trying to improve.

Dean Kaelin David’s voice instructor sent a video in which he spoke about his singing and the decision of going on a mission.  Dean got teary at one point talking about David’s decision.

I understand this will be on the DVD of the day.  I hope it has Kari’s parting words at the end, had us in tears.

I was able to speak to Kari for a bit and meet Jon “The Broken Man” I named him.  I introduced Winnie to her as a new fan.  Kari asked Winnie how she became a fan and Winnie told her because of Nandito Ako.  Kari’s face lit up and said “Wasn’t he good?” lol We said, “YES!  Still hoping for that DVD!”

kariandjon1

Kari thanked us for our support of David through tears.  Told us she and David are so appreciative of all we do for him and that David WILL START WHERE HE LEFT OFF UPON HIS RETURN AND THAT THINGS WILL BE BIGGER AND BETTER!

I have chills every time I repeat this.  So let the countdown continue.

They played I’ll Be Waiting by Aaron Paul in closing.

Random Thoughts From a Long Time Fan of David Archuleta

Posted by betsy on Saturday, April 13, 2013

4939016693_bea49c3d6f_o

Still here, guys.

Less than a year to go.

How have things changed? Because they have. I’m not talking about how many new Twitter followers David’s gained, or how many album sales, or how many Facebook Likes he has. I’m talking about us.

Some days I HAVE to listen to him. Have to.

Some days not.

I went over a week without, just didn’t feel like it. Listened to a lot of Gavin DeGraw and I’LL ADMIT IT LEE DEWYZE. 🙂

Some days I comment on posts. Then I’ll disappear for a little while.

(and it’s not always because life gets in the way, we can say that till the cows come home, but there was a time we stayed up all night discussing things, laundry decaying in piles lol)

Sometimes I think there isn’t anything worthwhile for me to contribute anymore, after five years of online fangirling, I think I’ve said everything I could possibly say. What HAVEN’T I said?

Am I as invested as I once was? Probably not. Or maybe I am. I don’t even know anymore.

I miss David. Some days more than others.

I miss his random, funny tweets.

I miss his vlogs.

I miss his random bursts of song. In person and written in tweets.

I miss planning trips to shows, and knowing, just KNOWING how great it’ll be.

I miss his smile, his laugh, his hugs.

I miss staying up late and looking for new concert footage the night of a show.

I miss a lot of people who have drifted away, not just since he’s been gone, but even before that.

I miss the friends I made at the shows. The friends I attended shows with. Had great dinners with. Held hands with and cried while the most beautiful songs were being sung to us. While Ave Maria was happening in front of us. Peeked through a crack in a door to watch David soundcheck with. Talked like the oldest and best of friends while eating some fab food. Laughed hysterically in the car when someone’s iPad ran out of minutes and she frantically added time so we could continue watching videos that were popping up after our show. Danced to TOSOD in a gas station restroom after a show. 🙂 Ran like a foolish 13 yr old to save a place in the front row of a show outside in the cold. Sat in a chatroom till all hours discussing every minute particle of every song. Every change in our lives.

Wow, we’ve really been lucky. Really, genuinely lucky.

A year ago, I wondered what it would be like in a year. I wondered if people would still frequent the sites. Who knew what would happen? We all said we’d be here, but life has a way of curving, changing.

We are closer to the coming back than the leaving.

The Ultimate Setlist ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, March 5, 2013

tumblr_mj0fdxqByv1r9dhlfo1_500

gif credit: ohnopurple

It is not an easy feat for a young artist to come up with a sophomore album. Yet David has produced a total of seven albums in five years. To quote Simon Cowell, “When you’ve got it, you’ve got it.” Back from his mission with a plethora of songs in his repertoire, he will have a leviathan task on his hands making up his setlist for when he starts touring again.

So let’s help him out. I’ve compiled a list of songs from his albums, plus songs and covers he has done at concerts and appearances.  Some songs he hasn’t even sung yet but we can dream, can’t we?

Here is your assignment, should you wish to accept it:

Use the ballot below to select 25 songs you would like to hear David sing on his next tour.  You can make suggestions for other songs, too. We will tally the ballots and come up with the 25 songs that make it to the Ultimate Setlist for the Homecoming Tour! You never know who may wander over here to read our list and take note of our choices. 😉

Concert and VIP Memories/The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, October 21, 2012

The first time I saw David live in concert was at a stop on his first solo tour. I knew I‘d be running late so I didn‘t get VIP tickets. Since then I have gone to six more events, and met him in person three times. I should be a pro by now and able to write the book on how to do a VIP with him, right?  Wrong! YouTube had become my BFF because it shielded me from coming face to face with him. Without fail, I revert back to my fifteen year-old shy self when I see him.

I know that there are fans out there who have not yet seen David live in concert or met him in person so I wanted to write about my first VIP experience. Thinking about it brought back some concert memories, too.

My first VIP was almost three years ago at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ. Being there felt surreal. After months of anticipation, could this really be happening?  To make it worse, from the time I checked in to VIP to the time I actually met David was several hours. Spending the time with Marlie, Silverfox and Dawn in a special VIP room with approximately 100 other VIPers was a lot of fun. We sat at round tables and chatted while munching on New York pretzels and other assorted snacks provided by the tour promoters. While the anticipation was mounting, they tried to keep us busy by having us answer silly DJA trivia questions like what is David’s favorite food and what are the names of his animals and what is his birthdate. It didn’t work.

Time was tight, we heard, and were informed that David would not be singing “Heaven” or “Crazy” as promised, like he did in previous shows on that tour. I was so looking forward to hearing those songs. Instead, we marched to the arena where we saw sound check performances of  TMH and ALTNOY.

Then David answered some questions from the fans. Look how comfortable he was, chilling with us.

After sound check it was back to the to the VIP room when word got around that David was due to arrive for the meet and greet. It seemed like the number of people sitting at the tables multiplied when we all stood and gathered on the long line. Without even seeing him I knew that he had arrived. There was a kind of hush when David entered the room. Not even kidding. The sound actually changed from a drone of noise to one of quiet excitement. And there he was, a regular guy, except not.

Honestly, I didn’t believe all the hype about the glow around him. I had never heard of such a thing; how can a person glow? But for some reason it looked like there was constant light shining on him. I looked at the ceiling to see if there was a spotlight or a bulb or something. But I didn’t see anything. It was as if a glow was from inside him.  He was across the room so I was able to take it all in, the line of fans waiting in anticipation for their turn, the gentle manner he had with each person. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him and I wasn’t the only one.  As I got closer and closer it was as if he was larger than life, a brilliant presence, yet just a young man.

One of the things that’s so endearing about David is the way he gives each fan his undivided attention. When he finished with one fan, he looked at the line to see who was next. Yikes it was me! He looked at me and Mr. Bebereader and I froze. I had to be pulled to come forward.

I had it all planned. I prepared to ask David about the song “One” by U2 that he sang a segment of on his solo tour. With Marlie’s help, I had started a campaign and collected close to 100 letters from fans, (delivered to David by Silverfox at a prior show on the tour), encouraging him to cover the entire song. Achkkk; what I said to him came out all jumbled.

David: Heyyyyyyy! (Big smile, you know the one.)
Fifteen year old Me: Hi David, remember the one letters?
David: Huh????? (his signature huh?)
Who could blame him? It sounded like I was doing a play on words with one/won. I rattled his brain and explained yada yada yada, ciss boom bang. And then he said…
David: Oh yeah!!!!!
Me: Do you think you’ll sing the whole song one day?
David: I don’t know but I really love that song!

Phbbbbbt!  After all that, I got a non-answer! We took the picture and away I went. Ironically, Mr. Bebereader had a more coherent and satisfying conversation with David about picking him to win from the audition and  wishing he had 100 students like him.  It was interesting to stand around and observe the other fans after their encounter with David. Each person looked touched in some way, either with a permanent grin on their face or like they needed to get outside for some fresh air.

My memories of the actual Atlantic City concert are hazy because my upgraded Row 2 VIP seats were so far over to the left that I could barely see David onstage. In between songs, David talked about Halloween and asked what costumes people wore. I remember sitting behind a little girl and her Mother. During the show, the girl turned around several times and looked at me. Then she whispered something to her Mom. (Did I have something in my teeth? Was I singing a little too loud?) Shortly after, the Mom turned around and asked “Excuse me, are you David’s mother? My daughter said that she thinks you are. ”  Trust me; I look nothing like Lupe Archuleta. But I was so tickled and responded with “No, but I wish I had a son like him!”

When the show was over all the fans found each other and congregated in the lobby of the hotel, not wanting to go!  Such good memories.

For those of you who have been to David’s concerts and/or VIPs, are there any memories that stand out that you’d like to share?
