David Archuleta Posts ~ This is Bentley. How does she look with my glasses? 😉

davidarchie ~ Some of you may have noticed that I took a few weeks off from social media. 😬 It was extremely helpful and allowed me to get a better understanding of myself and where I am at in life. It’s so easy to get caught up in thinking about whether every moment in my life would be pleasing to everyone. Sometimes I get caught up to see if I am having enough interesting moments and witty remarks that will catch enough attention from people. I start rating my self-worth and how good my life is based on if someone chooses to look at my picture and like it or not who after 1 1/2 seconds most likely moves onto thinking about something else and looking at other photos and comments. I feel like I get caught up and obsessed with seeing if they approve or not the moment with comments and believe their comments and likes suddenly determine whether my life is great or not for where I am or what I am doing in the photo. It interferes with me being in the moment and enjoying where I’m at both physically and with my mindset, because I feel like I have to keep finding moments that will get enough people to look and “like.”

I may try to take more time without the temptation of social media and seeing how many likes I can get from a thought, picture, or video, and I would encourage you all to do the same and see what things you can learn about yourself that you may have forgotten while trying to get others’ approval. I will make sure to post more though and find the balance of sharing without caring too much. Haha. I guess it is a pull and tug that we all face throughout our lifetimes—not worrying what others think about us and letting that form our identity while having the courage to share what we learn and who we are.  Know that a new song will be coming out in just a short time, and I’m so excited to share it with you! I will keep you all posted. 👍🏼 #dog #time #socialmediabreak

David Archuleta ~ Layton Concert Recaps by Dayzee & Tawna

Posted by djafan on Monday, December 12, 2016

I love recaps!  Here are two from the lucky gals that were able to go to Layton sold out concerts.

Dayzee:

Spent a great evening with Tawna and Ron and David and Nathan. I really liked the crowd tonight. They were very appreciative. They stood up, shut up and laughed it up in all the right places. David did a bouncy Pat a Pan. When he sang White Christmas it felt like he was saying “Hey look what I can do” as he strutted through that song. His signature renderings of O Holy Night and Joy to the World were especially moving tonight. There were some extensive ramblings after which he told us we could wake up the people who had fallen asleep because he was ready to sing now. Still loving The Drummer Boy. Numb had the lyric video playing on the screen behind him and it was a nice touch.

I wanted to mention the Boise VIP. When Kari first came she told us all pictures would be with both David and Nathan and we were not to ask for one or the other. David kept Nathan in every conversation. At most David VIP’s the fans are requested to submit questions for David. This time he would answer the question and then pass it on to Nathan, always keeping Nathan on equal footing. Someone asked what foods David likes to cook. He told us he can fix a bowl of cereal. With milk. That’s his specialty and only culinary talent. Then Nathan told us he did not cook, but was excellent at eating. He had a long list of favorite foods. Then he said that he liked to sing on a full stomach. David visibly shuddered, and Nathan said David did not join him in that thinking.

In Idaho Shelley told me she could not make the Layton/Logan concerts and Las Vegas would be her next. We will miss her photo and video gifts.

Thanks to another fan I have tickets for the evening performance in Layton tomorrow, then will miss Logan as I will be on my way to Vegas.

Last night I went to David’s concert with my country music granddaughter. She had not been to a concert with me since David was with Brad Paisley at Stadium of Fire. As we approached the auditorium there was a dazzling display of a Christmas light show on the opposite side of the street. We walked up to the venue doors thinking this was pretty dark after all those sparkling lights. It was just after 6 and we expected the doors to be unlocked, but no. An official came out and told us we could not enter the building because there was no power. The power company was on their way and we would get news as it developed.

Random: I currently have the Motab on TV singing David songs and they are pretty good. Not David, but pretty good.

Back to the concert. Fans gathered and huddled outside the doors. Rain had been falling all day and there was no letup. Half an hour later we were told they were trying to set up for an acoustic event. If we wanted to stay for that, we would be welcome. No one left. The time on my ticket said 7, but that hour came and went. Around 7:30 we were allowed in and found our seats. The musicians were moving their instruments down from the stage to the area before the front row of seats. Instead of scooting our chairs, they were scooting the show towards us. Great! I looked around. A sold out house and there were still no empty seats. They promised us some kind of show by 8. Lights came on at 7:45 and the musicians came down and moved their stuff back on stage. Shucks.

The emcee came out and thanked us for being so nice and so patient. Hey, we are David fans here. We are always nice.

When Nathan came out he told us of their chaos backstage, trying to come up with a set list that would work for an acoustic show.

David thanked us for still being there. As if we would leave.

Was it worth it? Any inconvenience disappeared when David stepped on the stage. When Nathan begins Drummer Boy I am no longer unhappy. Instead I am ecstatic because I know David will soon be bounding onto the stage to show us all how fun that song can be.

I thought Riu Riu was especially good last night. It was all wonderful. A forever memory.

Made me smile to see Shelley’s second pic at #37 with David in front of the big green DAVID ARCHULETA on the screen. David turned around to see what was on screen and gave a little snort saying, “That’s not a Chistmas picture!” Self-promotion is just not a David thing.

David shortened his stories considerably on Saturday night. He always says he is working on doing less talking, but I want to hear it all. My granddaughter enjoyed David speaking and said, “He’s just like a real person when he talks.” Hmmm

When Tawna and Ron came to their seats on Friday Ron jokingly tried to pick a fight with us saying, “You know we have already seen this show.” No, Ron. Every time David is on stage is a new show.

Hoping for some good Ninjas for Tuesday night in Logan. I will be on my way to Las Vegas. Looking forward to a great time with Jan and David.

Tawna:

Ron and I had theee most fun evening last night!! What fun it is to be with Dayzee at a David concert! David and Nathan were wonderful … but then, that is not new news to anyone here! Dayzee and I giggled several times at dumb little things that David would say or do. He’s ‘just David’, still.🙂 I completely agree with her viewpoint on last night’s crowd. Layton loves David. They were also very, very open to Nathan. I don’t consider Nathan Pacheco as an opening act. Even though he does open the show, David very much includes him as an equal sharer of the bill. He will, out of nowhere, just say something like, “let’s give another round of applause to Nathan Pacheco”! It’s so interesting to watch them watch each other when they are on stage together. They are two peas in a pod, IMHO! Learning from each other and practicing on each other.

I’m going to go on a little rant here, though. Utah concert goers, get your act together! When the ticket says that the show starts at 7:00, be there and in your seat by 6:45!! If you want to purchase merch get there early enough to do it before starting time or wait until after!! I’d be willing to bet that they were late starting last night because they could see all the seats that were still empty and knew that they had been sold. Plus, the lobby was still crawling with people coming in. It just irritates me to no end when this happens. I don’t know how it is in the rest of the country, but Utahans are notorious for lateness. And, this is coming from a native Utah girl. But, I was taught while very young that late is not good. My dad always had us there with time to spare — thank you dad! Oh, and one more thing… if it’s date night and you are sitting next to your sweetie, DO NOT keep leaning into each other and snuggling (especially if you’re in front of me). The person behind you (ahem, me) wants to see the performer whose name is on the ticket, not the back of your heads that make a better door than a window. The seats in that auditorium are lined up very well so the stage can be seen … if you sit straight in your chair. Yes, I’m talking to you, Mr. Tall guy in front of me last night, with your arm around your wife and your shoulders touching, and you got there after the 7:00 start time! Okay, *rant over!*🙂 (whew, I feel better)

One more thing, the audience loved MLP and Numb. When we left last night, Dayzee and I both noticed that the merch tables had lines. We decided that since David introduced them the way he did during the show, that people were now crazy to get them in their hands. It was great to see it.🙂 I would love to be able to see this show again and again. Unfortunately, unlike my Duracell Dayzee friend, that never slows down, my body won’t take those long car rides for awhile. I’m hoping that next year brings improvement.

The St. George Tuacahn David Archuleta Experience

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, November 15, 2016

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 Introduction

The Teaser

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.shelley-stories

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.

make my soul wake up with your light
and you, and you, and you…

Official lyrics

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4

Tell me how to do it and I do/
Fuelin my ambition like I’m filling up a pool/
Aint my choice but its up to me to choose
Hammered out my goals like I’m working with my tools/

On the same page like da headline news
even jimmy fallon couldn’t shake me out my roots/
best foot forward like we dancing wit a groove/
we gone stay grinding till We all make a move\

Said are you gonna find it , baby my way
Are we gon grind or are we gon play
We gon give it time never gonna wait
Said it either black or white but no grey

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4

We could only win never loose/
Cause the only thing we ever share be da truth
We gon feed the fire till its burnin down the roof
Focus on ya heart cause the feels be the proof

Yeah cause my soul lighting up like a fuse.
Always down to share never “thats our food”
shoulder to the wheel like a nascar
crew
Head in the word baby thats our school

Are you gonna find it baby my way
Are we gon grind or are we gon play
We gon give it time never gonna wait
Said it either black or white but no grey

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4
