“His voice has matured and resonates with a silky, richness – it filled the entire venue and everyone was literally hypnotized and mesmerized by the depth of emotion in every single note. He got a little choked up at the end of the Spanish portion, and it was all I could do to hold the phone steady and not cry – even after all this time, David still has the power to move people to tears.”
“The bodyguards read the situation clearly and immediately surrounded David and Lupe and started moving them towards the exit. Then panic ensued as people realized David was leaving, and the crowd went into full Reno Solo Tour GA (General Admission) mode – if you were at Reno, you know what I mean – and it took everything in my power not to get knocked down and trampled! I was afraid for David – it was like the heyday of David Mania – and the bodyguards (I think there were six of them) linked arms and cut a path towards the exit and ushered David and Lupe into a waiting car where they were whisked off into the night, the red tail-lights getting smaller and smaller in the distance, and then he was gone.”
And then there’s this:
Continuing my journey on the #northshore of Oahu with @climb_works . Such a blast! Nice people, and got me to try things I probably wouldn’t have before. Highly recommend checking out these awesome places in Hawaii! #CLIMB #hangingaround #zipline #iheartHawaii #SummerbreezeinNovember

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” Albert Schweitzer
This is the magic that happens when writing about David. I thought yes, Albert Schweitzer you have said it to me and then when looking for that candle, that spark, there was a picture that stood out above all the rest. David gets chills when the music is awesome to him and my hands started to shake a little on the keyboard when I saw this amazing picture.
I have the deepest appreciation for all that David has given to me through his singing and by the person who he is now and always has been. We say this expression throughout the years and each time I hear it I am reminded of how lucky in life I have been.
The winter has us locked into coldness and the sounds of the frozen trees echo in the stillness. For me it has been the perfect time to dwell upon who inspires us. We can think about what is important and what impresses our minds and souls. There is never enough time to think such thoughts so it seems.
As we continue to enjoy David’s music, we can think about the people who have been bringing the joy of his music to us. Imagine for a moment if we did not have the pictures, the videos and the bits of news that have trailed back to us from faraway places. David’s voice is so amazing and sensitive that in listening to his singing voice we actually hear him speaking. It is such a personal experience when you listen to him sing in any language. I know the words of “O come O Come Emmanuel” but even if I didn’t, I don’t need to know the words of “O Ven O Ven Emmanuel” in Spanish. I believe that I hear the meaning in his voice. Listening to him is an incredible gift never taken without appreciation. This song has been an inspiration to me that I have not had for a while.
It is time to look around us and see who we have kept company with, those we already know and those who we have just met. A long time ago now, out of the blue we were talking one night on The Voice Unplugged about the song “Nobody Does It Better” and from that conversation came the first bracelet, “Nobody Sings It Better.” We distributed it as far and wide as we could, taking them to concerts and handing them out as different occasions arose. It actually became an article to buy on an overseas site.
The second bracelet was quickly thought out to bring his fans together. They were distributed worldwide as the requests came in. This bracelet expressed to him and ourselves that he has become a part of our souls. When David was away for only a while, a message was sent from him to his fans that we are a part of his heart. So that all said and done, we continued to live our lives to the fullest and came to our sites to connect and share the news.
I recognize the dedication of the sites to keep the fans together when sometimes so far apart, making it possible to continue in our enjoyment of the refined, accomplished, classical singer that David Archuleta is. Looking at the activities around this site includes the articles which were contributed by the staff and guest writers. For me, I couldn’t write anymore no matter how hard I tried, so I have to give so much credit to those who could, when there was hardly anything that I could consciously see to write about. But in the end of any conversation we might have, it is David through his music, that is still my greatest inspiration.

David is only a hop, skip and a jump away from his return!!!
December 28th, 2013
Shelley has created this group birthday card to
send to David for his 23rd birthday!
Last year she also created one that had over 1000 signatures.
She thought David would like it and did he!
Elder Archuleta sent us this!
Shelley has been busy working on the details of
the card to be printed into a birthday book.
The great staff at Staples remembered last years birthday project and let her know they’re ready to help!
Great customer service :)
So please, if you haven’t already signed the card click HERE to go, no RUN to sign David’s 23rd birthday card. There are about 600 birthday wishes as of now and we need at least 600 more to get it above last years count. It would be awesome to receive a picture of his joy upon receiving it. The deadline to sign is October 4th. This will give enough time to get it printed and bound into a beautiful card from all of his fans.
And we might just get another picture showing us that great smile. :)
And a huge shout out to Shelley and her labor of love! ♥

When God created men
They were not all the same.
Each from a different palette
So many of them came
But every now and then
A special one is made,
Painted with touches of color
From the beauty that God gave.
From the dewy green of grass
He’s given him his eyes.
With the color of cherry blossoms
He painted lips to smile.
From the softly falling snow
He found the color for his teeth.
And for his skin, a special treat,
The dew and color of peach.
And from the blackness of the night
His locks of hair are hewn.
And then he gave him breath
So with golden voice he’d croon.
His heart was made with special care
From the garden of the rose.
In deepest red he fashioned it
With love and care and hope.
When giving him his inner light,
He reached into the sun.
He knew this one would shine so bright
He’d be known by everyone.
As he gazed upon this creature,
God knew he’d cast a spell.
He’d made this one a masterpiece.
He’d used his palette well.
