When The Archuletor “Breaks The Silence”

His Angels Chorus: We Gotta Get Through This!


Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena, Nashville, TN

I love music. Am an Archie or an Arch Angel. And am dang proud to be one!

But no more prouder than on 25 April 2011, when my artist of choice publicly showed his support for the Invisible Children’s 25 Campaign.

Held in Nashville, Tennessee, David, along with another fine young artist, Landon Pigg, took to the stage to “Break the Silence” in order to give back to all those who made the “The 25 Campaign” a rousing success.

The ’25′ campaign, which launched mid-February, asks participants to commit to raising $25 for the Invisible Children’s Protection Plan before their 25 hours of silence.

Invisible Children’s target was to get 25,000 people to donate $25 each to raise at least $625,000 for a “Protection Plan to build the (1) region’s first rehabilitation center, (2) implement an early warning security network, and 3) support our international campaign to arrest Joseph Kony, rescue his child soldiers, and bring peace after 25 years of war.”

Communicating in Unique & Relevant Ways

Music has always been an integral part of Invisible Children’s awareness efforts. According to Bridgette Bugay, public relations for Invisible Children, “the organization has participated in over 25 national music tours, been the beneficiary of music festivals such as CMJ, has official partnerships with La Blogotheque, Spin, Filter, and Windish, and continues to feature new music in their documentaries. The media-based company understands the cultural impact of music and has worked with countless artists to communicate their mission in unique and relevant ways.”

Unique and relevant, indeed. The night concluded with music in our hearts, fervor in our guts and funding for Invisible Children’s innovative campaign amounting to at least $1.8m!

The Soul Man from Utah is Back!

It was heartwarming to hear David explain how amazing he felt that he could be on the forefront of a fund raiser, not just one of the silent donors [before he became famous].

It was mind boggling to see him perform with sass, soul and “surrender”.

Once again, the enigma that is David Archuleta could not have been more pronounced last night – ramblin’ away between songs, then like a light switch, flips into this prodigious, soul-searing, other-worldly performer!

How’d he do that?

Archies’ Collective Chorus: We Gotta Get Through This!

If last night’s performance – especially with his new band – is any indication, there is SOOO MUCH to look forward to, as David enters another fresh era in his career :)

Are we reeaaally ready? Guys, I suggest we put all our affairs in order. Check your insurance, last will and testament, etc… Me thinks The Archuletor unwittingly has murder in the works…

Above all, find an Archie buddy to, at the very least, resuscitate you for the “daidly” days ahead.

Enjoy the collection of eye & ear candies below :) Don’t tell me I didn’t warn youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu, hehe.
