You-ooh Are Someone To Love ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, January 2, 2018

photo found on Snowangelz

In the roughly ten years that I have been a fan of this young man, David Archuleta, he has come a long way, in terms of talent and stage presence, speaking to the public at large, sharing personal stories, overcoming shyness, and embracing confidence issues, as  he calls them. He has grown up! He has already learned how to ward off rude questions posed by interviewers.

However, as a parent, there were many times (in an alternate universe) when I wished I could have helped him in his journey, when I could have told him that it’s okay when he makes a mistake during a performance, that he is so past having to explain any blunder and that it happens to everyone.

I wish I could encourage him to use his genius as a musician to give him the strength he needs to overcome his shyness. And that we, his fans adore him, flaws and all.

I wish I could tell him that he owns every stage he performs on and not to be alarmed when he sees thousands of us in the audience, waiting for him to sing. When you’re that talented and charismatic, the audience just wants to be part of your universe.

There. I said it. 😀

David Archuleta ~ Hope all had a wonderful Christmas and Wishing all a happy New Year!

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, December 26, 2017

David wished us a Merry Christmas in two posts with beautiful messages!

View this post on Instagram

I had to post one more for the holidays. I guess my ugly #Christmas sweater scared all the kids from wanting to stand next to me. 😂 their jammies were jammin' though! I shared this verse with my friends and family and thought it would be good to share it with all of you as well! "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." – Isaiah 9:6 May we remember the reason behind the season everyone. Joy to the world! A Savior is born! The Prince of Peace. Let's carry the Christmas spirit forward and #lighttheworld . Enjoy your time with loved ones and let's see how we can lighten someone's day with an act of kindness. Merry Christmas everyone!🎄🌟

David and family out visiting neighbors today!

View this post on Instagram

Christmas is the most beautiful time of the year. I’m so thankful I got to spend it with the people I love most. We spent today visiting the people in the neighborhood we grew up in. The Rowley’s (first photo) changed my life. Mr. Rowley is the most incredible man and he radiates God’s light. He was our former bishop and helped and cared for our family when we especially needed it. Thinking about the conversations we’ve had brings tears to my eyes. I would not have been able to make it through that time in my life 4 years ago if he had not been there. Him and his sweet wife are angels! Mr. Walton (2nd pic) is another amazing man. His incredible wife Mary passed away this year. They were always serving others together and thinking about how they could improve another persons life. We were able to go visit him and Ella (an elderly lady who has the coolest Christmas setup) and sing for them. Brother Walton gives the best hugs EVER, so I’m so happy David got a pic of it, haha. What have you guys done for Christmas today? Merry Christmas!

Thank you all for an amazing year 2017!  David has been more than I ever imagined, a slow start but then full speed ahead!  And 2018 looks to be more amazing the 2017!  Hang on y’all!

INVINCIBLE ~ From the album ‘Postcards In The Sky’

Invincible Lyrics

I started a war
Sent out the battle cry
And I’ve been here before
Fighting me, myself and I
When I try to prove that I’m never gonna lose
I push too hard
I push too far
Try to be brave ‘til it’s more that I can take
So many times
‘Til I realize

Take a breath
Look at how you’re trying to think it to death
When you’re in the crossfire don’t forget
That you don’t have to be invincible
Take a step
Even if you fall it ain’t over yet
If you’re in the crossfire don’t forget
That you don’t have to be invincible
Ooh, Ooh

I counted to ten
Stepped back so I could see
How bad it can get
When I’m the enemy

I put my weapons down
Until I found a better way, a better way
I’ll never change if I’m too afraid to break
Got to let it go, let the whole world know to

Chorus

Bridge:
You’ll never know
Never know how strong you are
‘Til you’re strong enough to let your armor fall

David Archuleta ~ Chasing The Unattainable Dream by Kristin Rivers

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, September 26, 2017

credit Pamela Pike

Thank you Kristin for sharing your gift of writing with us.

How many times in life have we struggled to achieve a dream that seems unattainable? How many people told you to give up the dream placed on your heart or forget a goal that you know will change or better your life?

Since I was a teenager, one of my biggest dreams was to see and meet my favorite musician and role model, David Archuleta. I have had my share of people tell me to face the reality of ever meeting him. I’ve been told to give up, get over it and not get hopes up. No matter what dreams we have, the naysayers will come knocking with their comments, personal opinions and “helpful” commentary. Some still don’t realize how much words can hurt as much as actions.

With my dream about Archuleta, I almost gave up last year. A Christmas tour that didn’t have concerts near me…did me in. I was left devastated, heartbroken, angry and beyond tired of the waiting. With having other things going on in my life at the time, that made the blow even harder to swallow. I had to stop talking to some fans because I couldn’t deal with their excitement, leaving fansites I used to go on and ignored videos shared on YouTube and social media. It felt easier to distance myself so I wouldn’t lash out at other people. I was really losing my faith and asking God why I had to wait longer for something I wanted so badly, feeling yet again that my dream was stupid and that I should have given up a long time ago. The words of the past haunted my mind and distracted me from what my heart was trying to say: don’t quit.  There was still a part of me that dared to hope, a stubbornness that said not to quit just yet. Many of us have been told, or heard, about how people give up just when their dream would finally come to pass.

I just wanted to quit, accepting that maybe it will never happen until I was older and living closer to where he would have a concert. At times, we have to put dreams on hold until we’re better off financially, someone encourages us to just do it and stop letting life pass by or our focus is for other people in our lives than our own.

Earlier, I mentioned how words can hurt people. But I think we forget how words can also heal and help, especially when you least expect it. A joke to a friend over email one night In December 2016 created an opportunity that left me crying in bed the following morning and one step closer to that impossible dream finally becoming reality. Yet, the following months were still laced with bitterness, brokenness and hopelessness. I was so focused on what I didn’t have that I forgot what I did have. When you wait so long…you feel really defeated, other times broken and a shadow of your former self and still feel the temptation to walk away and accept things as they are.

This past weekend in Worcester, MA, the dream came true.  Sitting front row with some amazing fans and surrounded by 1,000 people, we waited in anticipation for what the many speakers, besides Archuleta, would share with all of us……and there he was. The moment David Archuleta came out at the beginning of the conference to sing “Glorious”…things got real for me. After seven long years…I was watching this remarkable, God-fearing man perform his heart out and inspire everyone present with his words before my own eyes. There was some laughter, plenty of smiles and moments where I was close to tears. During each break, I would be left speechless at everything: not just David but everyone else who spoke and shared their stories with all of us. Brad Wilcox talking about grace and reading to his grandson, Alissa Parker’s brave story about her late daughter, Emilie, who died at Sandy Hook in 2012 and many, many more.

In case you were wondering “So, did she get to meet him?”

Yes, I did. My lips are sealed at this point though! But, I can say this: he was worth the long wait…and boy does he know how to surprise people. David, if you happen to be reading this I think you know what I’m referring to.

I want people who read this to know your dreams are never impossible or unattainable. Sometimes they just take a little more time than other goals we want to achieve. They require holding on to hope when you feel you just can’t anymore, having faith and trust in whatever higher power you believe in and A TON of patience. If there’s anything David has taught his fans over the years, it’s patience.

Thank you for listening and reading, and don’t give up on those dreams just yet.

From The Idaho State Journal

David Archuleta to perform in Pocatello on Friday

By Courtney Johnson cjohnson@journalnet.com

POCATELLO — Pop star David Archuleta will perform at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre on Friday night.

The gates open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets for Friday’s performance can be purchased at smithstix.com.

Archuleta found his fame at age 16 when he was the runner-up on the seventh season of “American Idol.

Archuleta didn’t always have plans to become a music artist. Throughout his childhood, he wanted to be zookeeper, a dentist and even a social worker. Even though he kept changing his mind, he always knew that he wanted to connect to people in some way.

Obviously, Archuleta didn’t become a zookeeper or a social worker, but he was able to find a special way of interacting with others.

“Music is way to connect with people,” Archuleta said. “I’ve always wanted to connect with people, to tell stories and hear peoples stories, and I get to do that through writing songs.”

Last month, Archuleta released his latest EP, Orion. The Orion EP has four new songs that were inspired by events in his life that left an impression on him.

“This new music is basically written from my journey of the last several years of my life,” Archuleta said. “From becoming an artist and performing on ‘American Idol’ to touring and making albums to then doing a complete 180 turn by going to South America to be a missionary, I have this new perspective on life and I’ve written about it.”

Archuleta plans to release one more EP before he releases a full album later this year. By releasing two EPs, he is able to get a feel for how his fans will react to his new music.

“I want my fans to like the music, but I also want to see how they feel about the story and message,” Archuleta said. “I am trying to get a feel of how people will respond and react.”

When Archuleta isn’t touring and writing music, he admits to sometimes wasting too much time watching videos on YouTube like Studio C. He also loves to find new restaurants on Yelp and try them out with friends and family.

Since his run on “Idol,” Archuleta has released seven of his own albums including an appearance as a guest star on The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s holiday album, “David Archuleta — Glad Christmas Tidings.”

“I seriously love food,” Archuleta said.

Archuleta is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and likes to show his fans all facets of his life from spiritual moments he has throughout the day to which new restaurant he recently tried out.

“My religion helps shape how I live my life and it helps give me so much fulfillment and happiness so I had to learn how to be open about all aspects of my life,” Archuleta said.

At his performance, Archuleta will perform a number of his older songs that fans will know along with some of his newer music. He will also throw in a few cover songs from famous artists throughout the last few decades.

“I want people to feel good when they listen to my music,” Archuleta said. “But I also want them to feel like they can connect to something deeper, like a deeper version of themselves and a deeper part of life. That’s really the purpose of this new music being released.”

David Archueta to Showcase New  Music in Pocatello

By Erin Burke

David Archuleta is coming back to Idaho for a concert, featuring Nathan Pacheco.

They will be performing in Pocatello at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre on Friday, June 16 at 8 p.m.

On Wednesday, two days before the concert in Pocatello, he was enjoying his day off by traveling and resting at truck stops. For weeks, he said he has been practicing his songs on a daily basis with very few breaks.

Archuleta’s newest EP, Orion, was released on May 19, according to davidarchuleta.com. He said he plans to perform some well-known songs from his previous projects and old albums, songs from his new EP and a new song which has not been released yet.

“The song I’ll be singing that I haven’t released yet is a preview of what is yet to be released,” Archuleta said.

He said he is releasing his next EP within a month or so, then he is releasing an album later this year.

Archuleta said he wants to come closer to God through his tour, so he likes to start every concert and writing session with a prayer.

“I remember one time a (songwriter said) that with the twenty years (he’s) been in the business, (he’s) never started a writing session with a prayer,” Archuleta said. “He said that was special.”

He then asked the writer if he wanted to say a prayer to end the session. He said the writer said he did not think he knew how to pray. Archuleta said he told him to say what was in his heart.

“He bowed his head, and he just started talking to God and thanking Him,” Archuleta said. “Afterwards, he was like, ‘I have goosebumps.’”

One of Archuleta’s greatest motivations for creating his new music has been the experiences he has had over the past seven years of his life.

Archuleta said, “After coming back from my mission in Chile, I had such a new perspective on everything.”

Orion, in specific, is a showcase of the perspective he has gained over the years.

He said these new songs are full of things he wants people to know. He has hopes that his songs will inspire people to stay strong because there have been times when he has felt not good enough or not known how to move forward.

Archuleta said he thinks those at BYU-Idaho may feel like they are not good enough and that his songs from Orion will help students to remember their worth. Sometimes students feel pressured to be perfect and that they cannot show any weakness because Christ said to be perfect.

“Christ said to be whole, to be complete,” Archuleta said. “He didn’t say that you can’t be flawed.”

Archuleta said he is coming to Pocatello because he has been there before and enjoyed connecting with audience members of the southeastern Idaho region.

“I want people to leave feeling better and lighter—feeling better about themselves and feeling motivated to keep moving forward in life,” Archuleta said.

Archuleta’s first single “Crush,” debuted at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week the singe released. Archuleta’s first album, “David Archuleta,” went gold, and sold more than 750,000 copies in the U.S. and more than 900,000 copies worldwide.
