Center Stage

Last night David took center stage at RootsTech 2015, a Family History conference held in Salt Lake City each year. Fans have been waiting a long time to see a performance by David that didn’t include Christmas songs! (Although, we love those, too!) First, David released the long-awaited Spanish Video that was shot in Costa Rica last fall. The song was written by David, in collaboration with Alex Menesio, and filmed by the Family History group to encourage young Latinos to get involved in their own family history. Love hearing David sing in Spanish!   Next David sang a song by Justin Timberlake, called Mirror.   Want to hear David talk for a while (I […]

@DavidArchie Goes Gospel – A Snippet

Is anyone really surprised? That David’s 1st offering since he came back from his Mission belongs to the Gospel genre? Am sure some Archies are further wondering whether this will be the direction David will take from now on and forget about his pop roots and more commercial beginnings. For me? Am just excited to hear his voice on record. And you know what am more thrilled of? The Nashville connection! Granted that this Nashville Band is actually a Mormon music group founded by Jason Deere and Dan Truman, the pianist of the popular country group Diamond Rio (Source: Wikipedia), am still excited of the prospect of David leaning over Nashville […]

Jennifer Barry Gave Us Her Gift

With great sadness, we mourn the loss of one of the most giving people in the Archie fanbase. Jennifer Leigh Barry shared her gift of photography with all of us. Several times in the past we featured Jennifer’s photos, and an article she wrote as a guest writer, here on TDC. It is likely that many of the articles here have a picture taken by Jennifer. We will miss her and her generous heart. May 13, 2009  Images & Art: Jennifer Barry July 10, 2009 The Jennifer Barry Photobook July 21, 2009 Oh, My, New Photos!

David Archuleta @ Back-to-Back M&G

Two back-to-back M&G, separated by a re-routing road scheme due to the taping of Bourne Legacy and you bet there’s bound to be bedlam in the metropolis! The Archuletor was SOMETHING ELSE! If some quarters have not been bitten by the Archu-BUG, this twin-set of M&G should do it. Am telling you, David was in his element. He looked so happy. HAWT! ROCKIN’! and SUPER ADORABLE! And the fans. They were incredible. Congrats TV5! Thank you for bringing such bubbly spirit into our shores. SM SOUTHMALL M&G (11am 28 Jan 2012)

Ain’t No Sunshine When He’s Gone…

Sunshine seems to follow David Archuleta. Or is it the other way around – that David brings sunshine wherever he goes? Cos that was surely the case when he was here in Manila. July being known as a typhoon month in these parts, Manila Archies were a bit concerned. But upon David’s arrival on the 17th, the lovely Manila skies opened up to greet him with the warmest of all reception. And as you can see in the July weather calendar below, it stayed that way throughout his visit Then as he left Manila’s area of responsibility shortly before noon on the 21st, the sunny skies suddenly […]
