@DavidArchie’s “She’s Not You”

OK, am writing this on a fly right after a grueling traffic morning here in Manila. As always, to ease the burden of going through mindless shifts and stops along EDSA, my iPod went through some of these sounds: David’s, MJ, The Beatles, Bruno Mars, The Killers, Journey, Freestyle, Hall & Oates, Civil Wars, Ric Segreto aaaand eventually returned to more David songs. The shuffle hit a familiar but unreleased track of David — “She’s Not You” and said to myself: Hmmmmmm… This really sounds gooood! Nice groove. Great beat. Showcases the soul from that white boy from Utah. And it is not over-produced! Message is apt for a 23 year-old […]

OK, I am the first one to admit it. Asking me to review one of David Archuletaʼs songs from the new CD is like asking the chocoholic “which piece of the Godiva assortment would you like?” Duh… Sure LIFE is like a box of chocolates and you donʼt always know what you are going to get but we are not talking about life here. We are talking about the music that comes out of the person we have all known and loved for the last few years. We know he does no wrong…musically.  Well, at least in my book. So read this with that in mind. I am a crazy fan […]

Playing With My David Appchuleta

Has anyone else downloaded Davidʼs new Christmas “app??” Well, let me tell you, itʼs a lot of fun! The basic premise is that there are five Christmas songs. Your goal is to sing along and try to be in tune, on pitch and in sync with the Voice. Once you choose your song and your level of difficulty, you hit “sing” and off you go. The lyrics scroll by along with the pitch lines, kind of like a ticker tape and a morse code line combined. It really lets you see how long David sustains some of his notes! An arrow follows your voice and shows you how your pitch […]

A Tale of Two Concerts

The moment the plane touched down in Salt Lake City I saw in the background the majestic, snow covered mountains.  I was now filled with excitement for the grand occasions to unfold.  Friends were making sure that I had arrived safely and that there were people close by to meet with in the morning. The following afternoon, we entered Abravanel Hall and attended a most enjoyable VIP.  We spent time with David at the sound check where he introduced for the first time the amazing songs “Fields of Gold” and “The Riddle”.  Both songs were to be kept a surprise for the evening concert.  Enormous Christmas balls hung from […]

But seriously… We are such a fortunate bunch here at TDC, ever grateful and appreciative that we have the DNA structure or whatever the heck it is that enables us to “get” David, and appreciate him in all of his gorgeous and uplifting awesomeage. It’s hard to believe that this is our second Thanksgiving together.  But here we are, still laughing, weeping, thuding, exalting and whoo-hoo-hooting for “our guy”!  OK, sometimes we’ve gotten a bit at odds, here and there, but hey! …what’s a little disagreement amongst extended family members?  The many and varied flavors are what makes the stuffing spicy! So here’s a toast to you, David—a sparkling cider, perhaps?!—and to your […]

My Magic Moment

The Diamond Ballroom was flooded with people waiting in line to meet and greet David Archuleta on his last stop on the summer tour. Fortunately the line of 100+ fans moved quickly because David had to greet each of us and be onstage in less than an hour. It didn’t give me much time to gather my thoughts as I stood in line, but still the anticipation was unnerving. After waiting for what seemed like forever, to finally see THE VOICE up close was exhilarating. We all know that David is a feast for the eyes, but it was very apparent that he’s so much more. Gracious, kind and respectful as he honored each fan who came to greet him and listened […]

An Early Christmas Present

Christmas has come early, a full two months early. Very premature for someone who likes to keep Christmas well and truly within the month of December. So here I am, confronted with the task of reviewing an album of Christmas music in October. Only for David. This album does a good job, in general, of capturing the spirit of Christmas, with songs that express both the spiritual side and the traditional side of the holiday.  This album is truly Christmas, from the heart. Christmas CDs are a very common and easy way for an artist and label to make money. Some artists are more suited to it than others, but […]

A Night at the ALMA’s

Just when you thought it was safe… just when you thought it could not get any better… just when you thought that this amazing voice could not stun you any more than it already has… and WHAM! you are hit upside the head with what occurred last night. Before I get to the VOICE, I must say that being a seat filler has its ups and downs (pun intended!). After moving around a couple of times I eventually settled into a seventh row center aisle seat, about twenty feet from the stage with a magnificent view. The announcer said at the commercial break “When we return you are going to hear […]
