@davidarchie New song and video called My Little Prayer now up! Link in bio.
Something I try to do to each day is begin by saying a prayer in the morning, and then end my day with a prayer at night. Sometimes, however, I fall asleep before I say my nightly prayer. One time almost a year ago I had one of these nights where I fell asleep before saying a prayer. Something unusual happened.
That night I had a dream. It was different than anything I had experiences before. In my dream I was praying-having a conversation with God. The conversation was also different. I was singing. I could hear simple chords in my dream that I was laying a simple melody and prayer on top of.
As I was having this conversation in music with God, He told me to get up and write this down. I thought and said, “…but… I’m sleeping. I’m not sure I know how to get up from a dream!” He told me “if you don’t get up now, you’ll forget it in the morning.” I tried everything I could to wake up, and I did! There in the middle of the night I went straight to the piano with the words and melody I had spoken in my dream still clear in my head, and wrote it all down. It was the fastest I had ever written a song because I feel this one was given to me.
I’ve sung this song several times this year now and people kept asking where to find it so I felt it would be good to share it during this Holiday season. I hope you enjoy it and find encouragement to begin your own simple and sincere conversations in prayer! #mylittleprayer #prayer#christmas #lighttheworld

Being a long-time fan, it’s not surprising that most, if not all of the shows on this tour are sold-out, given the incomparable Christmas Show David gives to his audience. The last Christmas show I went to was at Westbury right before David’s mission. I remember that “What just happened?” feeling we all experienced when the show was over. Euphoria for sure.
Safe travels and the best time to all going tonight. Thanking you in advance for any pictures, videos, tweets and IGs you can share.

REXBURG — This year’s Brigham Young University-Idaho Christmas concert has proved to be a historic event for the university.
It is the first time BYU-Idaho has ever sold out a concert in the BYU-Idaho Center, where Saturday’s concert will be held.
Don Sparhawk, coordinator of the Center Stage Performing Arts Series, would say the BYU-Idaho Center is the biggest auditorium in Idaho and one of the largest in the country. It has been filled before, such as for devotionals at which prominent members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were speaking, but it has never before sold out.
Even when the Mormon Tabernacle Choir came to perform at BYU-Idaho, just 12,000 seats were filled.
Sparhawk said he thought with 15,000 tickets available that everyone who wanted to go would be able to get a ticket. However, multiple people have been posting on Facebook in search of tickets, some appearing desperate to get them. Some have even sold the $15 tickets for more than the purchased price — for up to $25 or even $35.
Sparhawk said he found it amazing that there is still such a demand for the tickets.
He thinks the overwhelming response to this particular concert may be due to a combination of the popularity of the Christmas concert itself and the popularity of David Archuleta’s Christmas music.
The center seats 15,000 people.

Numb Music Video
@davidarchie Numb video is officially up! The link is in the bio so be sure to check it out and share it! Wow, I can’t believe this song and video are actually out now! It came from such a real place for me. We shot the video outside and alone to capture what it feels like to connect with oneself. Sometimes you have to separate yourself from everything to connect to something deeper. Nature is for sure one of those places for me. I hope that you can feel that energy watching and listening. Thanks so much for all the love! 🙏🏼 #Numb #Musicvideo #realstories #speakingtruth #music #song

My brain has been in a state of mist or fog due to three days of pure David Archuleta concert bliss last week. Coming back to days of work waiting for me hasn’t helped but I’d do it again in a heartbeat. What an incredible time going to concerts, hanging with like-minded fans who don’t roll their eyes when you can’t stop talking about all things David. I really really hope that David is available so we can make our trip to Tuacahn an annual event. David is magic and in that setting, the experience is unreal.
I’m going to try to share some of the things that left an impression on me from this incredible three-day immersion into David music and we must not forget the story telling, love them both.
The new songs “I’m Ready” and “Say Me”. They’re living in my heart and I can’t wait to hear them again. His voice, that voice just penetrates my soul. It is a sound that doesn’t seem possible to exist. I can’t even describe it but the sensory overload is real. I love them both but something about Say Me is so haunting and full of cry that it hurts, makes you feel the realness that is David. It was hard for him to describe it but it made perfect sense to me. The way he sang these songs was so raw and personal, so vulnerable… incredible. “Numb” is the perfect song for a comeback. I heard it last year but it sounds new, fresh. I wondered if he was singing it differently. Hearing the beautiful production of the recorded version might play a part but it is sooooo good. I hope it gets the attention it deserves.
The Lyric Video
The covers, oh my, “Higher Ground” displayed all of David’s groovitude, vocally and physically. He has a way to sing and move that is unique only to him and we eat it right up, I’m sure that this is only the beginning.
“Don’t You Worry Child” was so much fun! Love that he acknowledged some of us would need to do the jumping at the knees lol.
“Dare You To Move” was huge for me. The reasons he picked this song were so personal and as I listened back to the videos it hit me in the gut. Don’t know why but I don’t like him to hurt and it was painful. It’s become a favorite as it is so relatable. I know to play this full blast when needed now.
The oldies, so funny to think of them as oldies when David is only twenty five. “Something About Love” and “Crush” have to be sung. They’re crowd favorites and I can’t help getting up to dance to these. “My Hands” will always be one of my favorites and “Works For Me”, what an unexpected surprise! Loved it in his new deep rich velvety voice as he strutted around the stage and so did everyone else. And I also want to say that this band is superb. Chad is the best backup vocalist David has ever had. I watched the band members as David shared his stories and I love that they laugh, smile and clap every night even though they’ve heard these stories many times now! They’re keepers.
The story telling was signature David but better. I love for him to talk and share with us. The entire show, the singing and stories he shares in order to relate to us, to help us understand where he is coming from all make for something personal. A soul and heart connection that is felt throughout the evening. David initiates and we reciprocate with applause, yelling, and screams of I love you. David says he doesn’t feel sincere in yelling back I love you too, but he doesn’t have to. His love for humanity is palpable and it brings me to tears. It’s an experience to be felt. If there are those on the fence about going to one of these experiences please go, it is so worth it.
The fan lunch surprise sure surprised us all. I was so happy that Kari stopped by and answered some questions (I’ll refer to Dayzee for those because all I could do was smile and wonder if I was dreaming). I was dragging chairs, something about me and chairs… never mind, to the center for the group picture when he walked in and I was able to shake his hand and thank him for taking the time to come by before he sat down. I sat so still that I was able to record! I’m horrible at this but it came out fine. The words of thanks to his fans were so real, not to just the ones there but to all. He knows we’re there to support him and he appreciates it. And then he sits to sing! There is nothing better than David’s voice. I was sitting no more than four feet to his left and acoustic David is just wow. I also love his love of food which he was curious about what we ate and we’re all trying to answer his questions about the soups. What a guy.
I want to thank Kalei and her team for a great luncheon, we had so much fun. And also for the shout out to Snowangelz and The Voice David Archuleta for our continued support of David. Kalei beautifully stated we are a community of David fans, true words.
I also want to thank the fans who personally thanked me at the luncheon and the adms of this fan site and for continuing our support of David. Thank you all for hanging with us. I believe things are only going to get sweeter.

What a wildly successful weekend it was! David completed three consecutive concerts at The Tuacahn Amphitheatre, making for a musical hat trick. Thanks to the generous fans who took Periscopes, video and pictures, the rest of us back home were able to witness David’s comeback in real time! I can’t wait to hear more of his new music because what I have heard thus far is just wonderful!
Safe travels to everyone going home today!

St. George, Utah one year ago/credit pocoelsy
Exciting days coming up with three concerts and great weather ahead. It’s almost one year to the day that David performed at the Tuacahn Amphitheater in St. George, Utah! He must have been a success because he will again have three concert appearances in the same venue, starting tonight, Thursday, November 3, then Friday, November 4 and concluding on Saturday evening, November 5. If you’re lucky enough to attend any of the three shows, have a grand ole time and please report back to us, every little detail you remember!

From the Tuacahn website:
“The Tuacahn Amphitheater is a 1920-seat open-air amphitheater…The rear of the stage is open to expose the desertscape and red rock cliffs behind the stage which contains lighting, sound, pyrotechnical, and water effects installations. The area behind the stage is a mixture of natural stone and naturally colored concrete. This concrete riverbed was installed during initial construction to facilitate a massive 55,000 gallon flood of water that comes from the back of the canyon and across the stage toward the audience. Though conceptualized and custom-built for the “Utah!” production, this special effect and other water effects have been featured in numerous productions at Tuacahn.”
Djafan, Dayzee and Jenny and all other fans going: Hope you arrive safely! It’s 55 and sunny in St. George, according to my Weather Ap. Enjoy yourselves. Wish we all could join you!
And look what we have here! The lyric video for “Numb”, already with close to 2.500 views in a matter of minutes!
