It’s Glorious!

  While cruising through youtube today, I noticed a few fans had uploaded some interesting and unusual videos that are based on David’s “Glorious” recording. I thought it would be fun to share them here.

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 […]

Getting to Know David from BTS Clips

Whether on or off-cam, David Archuleta remains the sweet, humble and utterly adorable rambling guy that we have come to know. But we can also glean from his various interviews that he is not comfortable talking about himself – even if we love him to do just that! But in time, David has changed. He has become more open and deliberate in his delivery. He was even able to write an autobiography before hitting 21 So looking back to teener David circa AI, it is nice to have something to look back to. Here is a compilation of behind-the-scenes (BTS) AI clips while doing those Garnier, Coke and Ford segments. I grouped […]

Seasons of Love

    SEASONS OF LOVE Isn’t that a bit ironic? For why would love have a season? Shouldn’t it be everyday? Shouldn’t it be the best turn of our daily existence? More than timing, perhaps the phrase refers to the ebbs and flows of what we do in that line, that line between the years of one’s birth and death. The line that was tripping up Puck (Glee). Glee just aired it’s 3rd episode, saying goodbye to Finn, the beloved singer-quarterback, played by the late Corey Monteith. Though am not a big fan, I grieve for his passing. At 19? Who wouldn’t feel the loss for someone dying so young, so promising? Someone passing […]

American Idol – Season 7

Yes, it’s that time of year – American Idol is back again. Some of us still watch, some just can’t. Because Season 7 was IT for us. Season 7 was the year of David Archuleta and he stole our hearts from the very beginning. I love to go back and watch those early videos. Little did we know we’d be watching him this closely for so long. Here it is, 5 (yes count them) 5 years later and we are holding vigil for David to return from his mission. So, while the weird auditions are broadcast on FOX, and while David is away, we can remember the best season of American […]
