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!

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!

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!

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.

David Archuleta ~ New Single “Up All Night” Available “NOW” on all Digital Formats! Up All Night Buzz all around!

Posted by djafan on Thursday, April 20, 2017

David Posted an official audio youtube with the lyrics!

***LYRICS***

I am knocking standing at your door
Somewhere new I’ve never been before
Take me in and it feels like home
It’s getting late and I don’t want to go

Something simple in the way this feels
Like love is something pure and real
It’s getting late and I have to leave
But tonight your memory is holding me

I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
Pictures that cross my mind

They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
Keeping me up all night

See my heart and there’s an answered prayer
Feel the magic in the midnight air
Breathe it in I want to pass it on
The strength of finding somewhere you belong

I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
Pictures that cross my mind

They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
Keeping me up all night

Here so small but I am safe and sound
Where I stand it feels like solid ground
No where else that I’d rather be
No greater gift than what you’ve given me

All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
Pictures that cross my mind

They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
Keeping me up all night

Ohhh
They’re keeping me up all night, keeping me up all night

David Archuleta shares his jamming session to snippet of Up All Night!  I confess, I was driving and had to pull over 🙂

David Archuleta gave People Magazine an interview.

David Archuleta has new music out!

The American Idol alum, 26, premiered his latest song, “Up All Night,” on Tuesday, one month ahead of the release of his new EP, Orion.

“‘Up All Night’ came from when I was having a really rough month trying to see how I could make a statement and prove myself and was getting nowhere,” Archuleta shares with PEOPLE.

The singer retreated into nature for some songwriting inspiration.

“A family living in rural Tennessee invited me over to go fishing at their pond. None of the kids even had smartphones at the time. They took me in and when I got home I realized I felt whole again,” Archuleta reveals. “I was so confused with what happened that I couldn’t sleep. I had to get out what I was feeling so I went to the keyboard and recorded the verse and chorus with some lyrics that night.”

Archuleta’s retrospective lyrics represent the mix of self-reflection and pop melodies that fans can look forward to hearing on his new EP.

Orion is the first in a series of EP’s that I have been working on since returning from a two year mission in Chile,” he tells PEOPLE. “I’ve co-written all of the songs, and they they tell the journey of where I have been and where I am heading.”

 “Up All Night” follows-up the EP’s lead single, “Numb,” which premiered last November. Earlier this month, Archuleta debuted the artwork for Orion on social media, also sharing that the album would be available on May 19.

Isabeau Miller shares about Up All Night!

 isabeaumiller There are no words to say how exciting it is to watch people around the world react to art you helped bring into the world. Thank you, @davidarchie for the honor of allowing us to help tell your story and heart. @jskenney for taking the bones of the song and making it epic. And of course my love @shaunbalin for being the one who brings all inspiration to life. #upallnight #davidarchuleta #twoinc#jamiekenney #newmusicfriday

And some background on the writing of Up All Night!

And then there’s David Archuleta. I remember the first time we met, he’d come from church, and a wonderful friend of ours, who we’d written with a few times said she’d met him at church and had invited him to write with us. “Sure,” I thought, knowing how Nashville is, and that David would almost definitely be a no-show. But he showed. And we wrote. At first, it was awkward and clunky- like any first date might be (writing date that is)- and before we knew it, we had a verse and chorus. And I looked in his eyes. “You hate this, don’t you?” I said to the near stranger, who was quiet, even when he sang, even though he was a pop star around the world. He looked at me wide eyed, not wanting to say he did, but I knew he did. “We’re throwing it out.” I said. And we did. We started a new song. We finished the new song. And it was good. At the end of the day, he asked me how I knew, and I said, “I just watched you. I just tried to see what you were feeling.” I think that was the day that cemented our friendship, and songs just followed, because, when your friends with a lot on your hearts, and you create, it feels like it’s a disservice to your calling to not allow the songs in. But every time we wrote with David, I wondered if he felt what I hoped he’d felt: Heard. I never felt like it was my job to write with David, because, remember- I’m not “enough” or anything- certainly not a writer- to qualify as one. I felt it was my job to facilitate his ability to write. One of the songs we wrote is being released- tomorrow- as a single from his EP, and people are hearing it. I’ve watched on Twitter as people quote lines that fell out of my mouth, or David’s heart, or Shaun’s playing, and I think “Oh my God…this is the power of art.” But I’m not writer enough for this… I’m not writer enough to get a publishing deal in Nashville, and if I’m not writer enough for that, I’m not writer enough for this…  Read here!

So much stuff!  I love love Up All Night and so does everyone I have shared it with!  And to top it all off David graces us with a facebook live vlog!!!!  19 wonderful minutes 🙂

Happy Holidays to David Archuleta, Family, and Fans!

This has been an incredible year in David Land.  This Christmas Tour was amazing.  I feel sad that this time many haven’t been able to witness the gift that is David but I know that will change in 2017.

Here are some of our favorites videos from the Christmas Tour.

Abrra:

I have a huge archive of videos to choose from thanks to 8throwcenter and ShelleyFOD who film at every show they attend.  So, I opened my files and these are my favorites!

Mary Did You Know-8throwcenter

This song is up there with my  all time favorites. Lyrically superior with a  haunting melody sung by someone who understands it.

White Christmas-ShelleyFOD

This song is vocal perfection. David adds his special vocal technique to the melody like no other. His interaction with the band brings them into focus during the musical interlude.

The Christmas Song-ShelleyFOD

Some songs that David sings are all about the sound for me. This one is all about the visuals. He interprets the lyrics with his hand movements and facial expressions. He draws us into the song with him.

I can’t finish my part without mentioning all the wonderful quirky and fun IG stories that David has made for fans. I particularly enjoyed the ones where he sang. I captured one he did from his hotel room where he sang in Mandarin language. It was a reprise of the song he performed in China, My Heart Represents the Moon.

You can find a copy of this in Abrra’s Candy Jar
https://www.mediafire.com/folder/b1olqhp4e2va5/David’s_IG_Stories

Bebereader:

My very favorite performance is the jazzed up version of “White Christmas” but since Abrra already chose that one above, here are my next three picks.

Glorious. My heart leaps a beat whenever I hear the intro to Glorious. This song does to me what it’s meant to do.  It lifts me up because it’s so life-affirming. Am happy that David chose to include it in the set list for this Christmas tour.

credit: Shelley FOD

The Prayer. I liked this song from waaayyy back but David brought it back to life for me. In this duet, David’s and Nathan’s voices blend harmoniously resulting in a beautiful sound. I love the respect they have for one another too.  Yes, this was definitely one of my favorite performances from this tour.

My Little Prayer. I call this song the little song that could and did. It started out as just a dream David had and turned into something remarkable for a young singer songwriter. I honestly didn’t want to like this song because I tend to stay away from songs about someone’s dream. But the end result, after David polished it for recording and singing live for this tour gave me no choice; it’s just just wonderful.

Djafan:

All are my favorites at some point due to various circumstances.  Right now these are on repeat.

Oh Holy Night.  This has been my favorite Christmas song since I can remember and having David’s version completes the sound it’s supposed to have.

credit: 8throwcenter

Ave Maria.  This is another song that I grew up listening to and loved.  But David singing it opens up the heavens.  He sang it at VIPs and so glad it was recorded.

credit: 8throwcenter

Joy To The World.  David’s live version is so soulful.  I love when David lets out the soul.  The ending is killer.

We want to thank all the fans who post, read, and lurk here at The Voice. Please know that sharing David’s career journey is so much sweeter for us when you share your thoughts with us here.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah & Happy Holidays! And may you have a great time with family and friends!
