A Common Theme Among David Archuleta Fans?

Posted by MT on Wednesday, January 23, 2013

In a recent conversation (yes, it involved David :))  I was asked if I played an instrument or sang. I answered the question in as few words as possible (for me) and then moved on to another topic. But later that night, it really got me thinking about what things we David fans may have in common.

Quite often in chat, topics other than David are discussed. (I know! Unbelievable, but true?) One night, it started with a  comment about white boots and ended up with me confessing to singing the song “These Boots Are Made For Walking” by Nancy Sinatra in an elementary school talent contest. Yes, it elicited much laughter but resulted in discovering that several of us had owned those “cool white boots.” (You know who you are!) We were definitely “In With the In Crowd” back in the day. 😉

I confessed to dancing in first and second grade for those talent shows. From third to sixth grade, I sang and danced. (No trophies for singing though. I guess I should have stuck to dancing.)

I loved singing and dancing with all my heart back then. (I still do.) Just like David’s parents, if my mother wanted to keep me amused for a while, all she had to do was put on something that involved music. A movie musical was best. I would sing at the top of my lungs and dance around the living room. My Fair Lady and The Sound Of Music were two of my favorites but I would even sing the songs from The Wizard Of Oz and dance with Dorothy, The Scarecrow, The Tinman, and The Cowardly Lion.

I discovered as I got older that, although I enjoyed singing, I didn’t have a very good voice. But dancing was something I could do and really enjoyed. Once I started, I kept finding new ways to incorporate dance into my life. It didn’t matter what kind of dancing it was; Square Dancing, Cajun dancing, Jitter Bug, Cha Cha, Waltz, Two-Step, Line Dancing, West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, free style. You name it … I’d try it.

There has always been something in music that reached out to me and brought me joy.  Dancing was my way of expressing that joy. There is something in the graceful rhythmic movement that helps to release something inside me that words could never express.  Just  like singing, the true beauty of expression in dance comes from the soul.

I hadn’t really thought about all the different styles of dance I had tried over the years until was asked that question. It made me realize how much dancing is a part of me, just like singing is a part of David. The thoughts and memories stirred in me by that one question made me understand a little better how David must feel. Maybe understanding/feeling the passion he has for his art is part of what drew me to him in the first place.

Although I could never hope to dance nearly as beautiful as David sings, I can understand having such a deep love of something that lets you express yourself in a way that nothing else can.  He’s very fortunate that he is extremely good at what he loves. What greater joy could there be than making your living, spending you life, doing something you have such passion for?

One last thought: We seem to be discovering more and more often that we have many things in common. I wonder if there is a common thread among fans that draws them to David, a reason why some people “get it” and some don’t? Musical backgrounds maybe? Or perhaps it’s even more broad than that. After all, a passion for creativity and expression come in many forms.

So, if you don’t mind, I’d like to do a little poll to see if it’s possibly a shared passion for expression that might help us to understand and connect to David and each other in a way that others may not. I’d also love for you to expand on your answer in comments and let us know what it is . If you don’t want to comment that’s okay. But I do hope you’ll mark an answer in the poll.
