Pattirae’s Recap of Rising Star Outreach Event with David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Saturday, October 25, 2014

twoleadpicLeximae Walker and David Archuleta

Pattirae was lucky enough to attend Friday night’s charity event in Utah for Rising Star Outreach in which David performed six songs. And we are the lucky recipients of her recap below.

 

Hello everyone,

I can’t even believe what I am about to tell you today but I was there last night to hear our “glorious” David and precious Lexi perform at the Rising Star Outreach event. When David opened his set with “The Riddle” I started to cry. I was not expecting that and it was amazing to me to experience how much I had missed him and how absolutely beautiful his voice was to hear in person again.

My husband’s cousin Ron (on the board of directors for RSO) called us last week to invite us to this wonderful event. He knows of my love for all things David and I will forever be grateful for his generosity and love. It was so good to be with Ron, his wife Kay, and their daughter Lauren and husband.

We were sitting close to the front and by a warm fire pit outside by a swimming pool. David was getting cold after his set so they pulled up some chairs for him and Lexi to sit by the fire AND right in front of us. I have a picture of his back and him reaching his hand back to feel some heat by the fire. I could have touched him—but refrained myself. Haha

Lexi’s set was incredible and they sang a few songs together. I have some videos but don’t know how to transfer them here from my phone. HELP!! He told of his experience in India when the children sang “Somebody Out There” to him, the song he had written for THEM. When he then sang it you could hear a pin drop. Unbelievable!! (yes, I shed a few tears then also.)

When he said he was going to sing “Glorious” everyone cheered. It was so exciting! It was also fun to hear him sing “Stand By Me” again. After a short video and some speaking about RSO he and Lexi got up from where they were sitting by us to sing their last song together, “Prayer of the Children.”

They took some professional pictures at the end with David and Lexi and guess what? My husband Delos and I were the first ones to have our picture taken with him. He saw us with Ron and remembered us from other events we have shared with him and Ron (and maybe the million times I have had my picture taken with him at Meet and Greets!!)

Anyway, I just have to say that his voice is better than ever, and he is so handsome that I had a very difficult time looking at him and talking to him. 🙂

I loved meeting Gwen, who was sitting beside me.  She flew in from Dallas for the event and we soon learned of our groupie status with each other. She was so much fun taking videos and pictures the whole time (we were almost the only ones being so bold.) I was so glad to hear from Kari that some video will show up from the event.

Can I just say also how fun it was to see Kendra again. She is so beautiful and so talented. The whole evening was a dream come true and one I will remember forever.

My deepest love for each of you,

Pattirae

I was listening to @leximaewalker at sound check for last night’s event for #RisingStarOutreach. Here she was singing the Disney song ‘God Bless the Outcasts’ from the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Wow! This 12 year-old little gal fills your heart and soul with her voice. It was great getting to perform with her last night and with the beautiful backdrop of the mountains.

David Archuleta ~ Chords of Strength for Rising Star Outreach

Posted by voiceadmin on Wednesday, May 23, 2012

SINGING SENSATION AND AMERICAN IDOL FAVORITE,

DAVID ARCHULETA

TELLS HIS INSPIRING PERSONAL STORY

How many of you remember those words….the first words you probably read on the inside of the jacket of David’s N.Y. Times Bestseller… “CHORDS OF STRENGTH”?

As we opened to the introduction, we saw David’s first heartfelt words:

“I have no idea why I’m doing this, but I know I need to be doing it for some reason.” David Archuleta

The reason to me was loud and clear. No other person has ever inspired me the way David has. I have been around many years now, and have not ever felt the power of another person …as I have felt with David. His heart is full of wisdom, honesty and purity. To share his thoughts, experiences and dreams with fans and others…in a book…. was a beautiful gift. It felt as if he were chatting with us…. anywhere in our WORLD. The readers were treated to his strength of character  and inner spirit. We could even feel the warmth of his smile and see his glow as we turned the pages….even the ones without pictures.

The picture he painted for us…was real. David is real….and that is what we love about him. He definitely left a “heartprint” with us in this book….as he has done with every song he sings and how we watch him live his life.

His wonderful personality captured our attention …and we didn’t want to finish the book and have it all over.

Are you ready to read Chords of Strength for a second, third or maybe even fourth time? How about giving his great book to family and friends who are graduating from high school or college this year? It is a special book to give to people of all ages…for any reason…or just because it feels so good to introduce David to others. Let’s all create more buzz for David during this special time of Chords of Strength’s 2nd anniversary. I am sure there are many of David’s new followers who are not aware that he has written a book. Now is a great time to let them know.

To celebrate the anniversary of David’s bestseller, which is June 1st, one of David’s fans has created a special book pillow to put up for auction. Another fan has generously donated an autographed copy of Chords of Strength. The two of them will be auctioned together for two weeks prior to June 1st. The proceeds of this book pillow and book will be given to Rising Star Outreach (RSO).  http://www.risingstaroutreach.org/

David and his mother spent some time at this school in India during Jan. of 2011. They were there to help celebrate World Leprosy Day. They walked the Pathway of Hope that was built in part from bricks donated by many many fans.  They spent time with the children in the school, as well as helped the people who have been afflicted with leprosy. Many of David’s fans have continued to support RSO with sponsorships, bricks and other donations for their new school. This is one of the organizations that has been dear to David’s heart. They still need our help…so we are hoping that fans will help contribute with this auction…. keeping David’s caring spirit active while he is away.  Please pass the word around to others via twitter and help us help others.

You will not only be giving to others….you will have a chance to receive a one of a kind special remembrance to celebrate David’s NY Times bestseller….  “Chords of Strength”.

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************

DESCRIPTION:

It is a large pillow that is approx. 21 x 21 inches. David’s sillouette is the centerpiece of the pillow…bordered with piano keys and musical notes. The pillow is all black and white.

Attached are rawhide Chords (of strength) that will hold a book while you read it ….or just use it to decorate your home.

The back of the pillow is made of black denim, and has two pockets. (not shown in pictures)

Included with the pillow is David Archuleta’s …..NY Times Bestseller….”Chords of Strength.”

The proceeds from this auction will be given to Rising Star Outreach….whose main office in now located in Provo, Utah.

TO PLACE A BID ON THIS ONE OF A KIND ITEM, VISIT

WWW.STARSUNITEFORCHARITY.COM

Bidding ends June 1st!

The donor of this pillow for auction wishes to remain anonymous.

David Archuleta ~ To India with Love

Posted by djafan on Friday, February 4, 2011

 

Original photo by Ron Gunnell.

“Had an amazing time in India at Rising Star Outreach! Very humbling to go there and even though it was a short trip it was a life changing experience. Just makes you appreciate things more and gives you a different perspective of things. Sorry for the rambling babbling and still not really getting to everything I wanted to explain, but hopefully we can get a Q&A sometime soon!”

David Archuleta YouTube 02/03/11

“A special, a VERY special young man. So sweet, so loving, so compassionate. He is simply a one of a kind human being.

Obviously he will never forget the people he encountered, the people whose feet he washed, whose hands he held. The children he sang to & talked to & laughed & played with. AND he must know, THEY will also NEVER forget the young man named David with the voice of an angel, the beautiful, gentle eyes, the hair blacker than night, the beautiful bright smile, the large hands with a soft & gentle healing touch. They will never forget David. Of that I am sure.

But I don’t mind admitting I am glad he’s home. “

Silverfox The Voice 02/03/11

Keep giving your pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters and dollars to Rising Star Outreach.  We have started on the Pathway of Hope he began and we have..

“promises to keep,
And miles to go before we sleep,
And miles to go before we sleep.”

Robert Frost New Hampshire 1923

Pennies from Heaven

Posted by djafan on Monday, January 31, 2011

When I was a little girl growing up in Baton Rouge, there was no zoo but there was a children’s show called The Buckskin Bill Show.  Every day he would remind the populace of this lack with the refrain, “Remember, Baton Rouge needs a zoo.”  We children were assigned the task of buying an elephant.  How long it took to accrue the amount needed, I don’t know.  I know it went on for a long time.  I mean, how much does an elephant cost, even in those days?  Then there was shipping and handling to consider which must have cost a  pretty penny.  In fact, that’s exactly what it cost.  How does one eat an elephant?  One bite at a time.  How does one buy an elephant?  One penny at a time.  Kiddies would traipse across the set of the Buckskin Bill Show putting their pennies in a barrel.  Some would empty a bagful, some would put in only one cent but eventually enough was collected to buy not one but two elephants.  They were named Penny and Penny Too.

That experience taught me something about how great things can be accomplished by small means.

A few days ago I asked for people to join our newly formed group on Angels for a Cause to help with Rising Star Outreach.  Many of you have joined us and have donated money already to help uplift and give aid to those with leprosy and the far-reaching effects on their children.  I know, too, that many folks are going through some difficult times with the economy as it is.

So here is my cunning plan.  We all have spare change  lying around, in purses, in bowls, in couches and elsewhere.  I found a bag of change that I have had on the floor of a closet so long I had all but forgotten it was there.  I poured it into a basket and added more change to it from a jar in the kitchen and a tray in my car.  Here is what I ended up with.

I then took it to a grocery store and poured it into one of those coin collection machines.  It printed out a voucher that I brought to a cashier who paid me cash.  Do you know what was in that basket?  $181.77! Enough to buy 3 bricks and then some!  Just lying around collecting dust.

This is the cunning part of my plan.  Anyone can do this.  Gather your coins, convert them to cash and make a contribution to Rising Star Outreach.  It doesn’t matter how small the amount or how big.  Then email us at thevoiceda@gmail.com with how much you gave.  We won’t post names of anyone just individual amounts, and a running total that we hope will grow and grow, one penny at a time.

I will be bringing my basket to work tomorrow.  Lots of people come through my office every day and I will be asking them to donate their spare change to help the children of leprosy in India.  I think they will be willing to do that.   For thousands of years, the victims of leprosy and their families have had to beg for any small change just to survive.  For a little while, I can do that for them to help ensure they never have to again.

I also want to make necklaces using a shiny new penny as a pendant and mail them out to everyone who joins our group on AFAC.   It’s your choice of course, if you want to wear it but I think they will make great advertising.  If anyone asks you why you are wearing a penny around your neck you can tell them what it represents.  Hope for a better world, one penny at time.

So here is the plan:

1.  Join The Voice group if you haven’t already and want to be a part of something wonderful. angelsforacause.ning.com

2.  Donate whatever you can, even if it’s just loose change lying around your house or purse.  Check under the sofa cushions.  It’s almost time for spring cleaning anyway.  No amount is too small.  $5.00 is fine.  Of course, larger donations are also welcome if you are able.  Be sure to type in the comments when you donate that you are from The Voice group for AFAC.

3.  Let your coworkers know about Rising Star Outreach and have a receptacle for change handy if they want to help out.

4.  Email us at the voice thevoiceda@gmail.com with the amount of your donations since joining The Voice group on AFAC.  We will be keeping a running total of all contributions and will post it here on the site and on AFAC.

5.  Once I get the necklaces made I will need everyone’s home address sent to thevoiceda@gmail.com or the contact page above.

So that’s the plan.  The goal is a million pennies for Rising Star Outreach.

A gathering of angels showering pennies from heaven.  Continue to let us know in the comments on the site if you bought a brick and what you had engraved on it.  What did I have engraved on the three bricks I bought with my change?   Pennies    From    Heaven.

While we wait for his safe return, what can we do besides pray for him and the people he has rightly asked us to focus on?
