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

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.

The Price of Health

Posted by Abrra on Saturday, May 23, 2015

A tweet by fa3rygirl came to my attention recently. I recognized the name but had not seen her on fan sites for awhile. Her name is Sheila Roposa, a fan I had met a few times at concerts.

She is most memorable to me because of the compassion she showed to a young man named Michael. His dream was to attend a concert and meet David Archuleta. He was ill with cancer and had to be in a wheelchair. Not only did she get Michael to the show in Northhampton, MA, but she made sure he got to meet David backstage. This was not a simple task because there were 12 inches of snow on the ground. I will never forget the picture of David reaching out to Michael to say hello.

Sheila was tweeting about a GoFundMe page her family had set up. It is a crowdfunding platform that allows people to raise money for events ranging from life events such as celebrations and graduations to challenging circumstances like accidents and illnesses. The company is based in San Diego, California. I clicked the link and read the story about how her daughter, Tiffany, was ill with Lyme disease. I came away with the feeling that this was nothing short of a tragedy. My heart went out to Tiffany and her family. It’s a helpless feeling when you are told that there isn’t any coverage for medicine that is desperately needed. I knew I had to do something to help spread the word about a GoFundMe page set up to raise funds for Tiffany’s medical costs.

My hope is that Tiffany will get what she needs to get her life back. By sharing her story I hope to raise awareness about Lyme disease.

A message from Sheila:

My name is Sheila. My 15-year-old daughter Tiffany was bitten by a tick infected by Lyme Disease and several other infections two years ago. Her doctor at the time did not recognize the bulls eye rash and Tiffany went one year without any treatment while the Lyme Disease progressed.

Tiffany started taking antibiotics two years ago. Due to the infection being in her nervous system, brain, and heart, she has needed extended treatment, including IV antibiotics.

Recently she was placed on a PICC line, which is an IV line for antibiotics. Our health insurance would only cover one month of treatment. Tiffany started to improve once on the IV line, which is the only time in two years she had this much improvement, but due to insurance guidelines that only cover one month of treatment, the IV line was pulled today. We are setting up this account to try to get some funding to pay for Tiffany’s medical bills and additional time on the IV line.

Before getting sick, Tiffany was an active girl that played soccer and rode horses. For the last two years, Tiffany has been severely ill. She has been out of school with home tutoring as she can’t walk or sit in a classroom. She is bedridden a lot of the time. She has had numerous ER visits, doctor visits, hospitalizations, and sees several specialists for her brain and heart. She’s lost weight, had periods of paralysis, seizures, lost all her hair, has fluid around her heart, developed autoimmune disease, and countless other complications. She’s missing out on life.

We want Tiffany to be able to receive this treatment to get her life back. If you can, please consider donating. Any amount, no matter how small, will help. If you can’t donate (we understand not everyone is in the position to), please share this link with everyone you know and ask them to pass it on. http://www.gofundme.com/tiffanylymefund#

Update May 20, 2015

Hi, thank you everyone for all your help. We have now been able to schedule Tiffany an appointment with the Lyme Center of New England, which is a private facility. They will be able to further help her and maybe get her IV back in. We found out just with one medicine that her IV out of pocket will cost us $2,000 a month so we increased the goal, but we do now have enough to get things started, so thank you! Tiffany is feeling pretty sick still. She lost her hair again, but she’s handling it well. A neighbor and friend had her a wig made and people from the community donated to pay for it. So thank you to everyone for that also. We are very blessed. Sharing with everyone you know will help us so much. We’ve received donations from family and friends of people we know, so it does work! Thank you again to everyone.

David Archuleta ~ Glorioso Es

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, May 5, 2015

currentcredit Meet The Mormons

After the Youtube video for the Spanish version of “Glorious” was posted on this site, Gladys made this comment:

gladys1961 said
“The song is beautiful, David’s voice is sublime. It is different from the version in English. The lyric has totally changed.”

I was curious and asked Gladys if she would please transcribe the Spanish lyrics for us. When I read the Spanish lyrics and then translated them to English, I understood what Gladys meant. Although the sentiment is the same in both songs, the lyrics are very different. However, the song sounds just as beautiful in both languages.

David’s voice in Spanish has a natural flow. It may be because of his gift of combining the end of one word with the beginning of the next, weaving the lyrics together to create the melody.

What do you think?

David Archuleta ~ “Don’t Run Away” Live

Posted by djafan on Monday, April 13, 2015

dont run away 1

dont run away 3

All drawings by Kylie Malchus

While David was away on his mission he released two albums; “No Matter How Far” and “Begin”.  From “No Matter How Far”, we have heard Wait, Everything And More, and Love Don’t Hate performed  live.  I’ve always wondered if I would have the opportunity someday to hear some of the others live too.  For example, Nothing Else Better To Do, Tell Me, Heart Falls Out, Notice Me and Don’t Run Away.  Don’t Run Away being at the top of my list.

dont run away

What a surprise when he performed it live at Rootstech.  David’s simple introduction, “I’ve never sung this next song live before, but here we go”.  I recognized it immediately and just couldn’t believe it.  It’s the performance I watch the most from that day.  It’s David singing from his soul, the passion and cry in his voice reaching out to all.

 

A music video was also released while he was away which had a million views.  A simple but beautiful sequence of drawings by Kylie Malchus fit the song perfectly.  I was saddened that she wasn’t able to get into the conference hall at Rootstech especially since little did she know that “Don’t Run Away” was going to be performed live.

 It currently has 943,801  views!

Don’t Run Away Lyrics

When something’s wrong
And too much to handle
Try to find some peace of mind
Let it go.
Wait a minute, you know this road
It’s gonna leave you on overload, yeah
‘Cause somebody cares, yeah

I can see you hurting (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
Tonight

Don’t make a sound
I’ll be your voice
You don’t need to be afraid
Anymore
I’ll shine a light out in the dark
Guide you here no matter how far

Oh, yeah
‘Cause somebody cares, oh yeah

I can see you hurting, (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away

Open up, let it all out tonight, yeah
Open up, and everything will be alright

I can see you hurting, (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away

Turn around, don’t run away, don’t run away
I will be right here, oh
Tonight, tonight

dont run away 2
