The Jennifer Barry Photobook

David has been a true inspiration to me this past year.  I have always had a passion for photography but had kind of put in on the “shelf” so to speak, after my son was born. Yes, I took pictures of my son, but the creativity in photo taking had lost its edge. When I met David last year at the meet-n-greet before the concert, I had only brought my small point and shoot and used that to take the photos (specifically the “archugaze” shot and “bible” shot) that ended up being shown on fan site after fan site, more spec. I was very shocked to see the photos I […]

Elvis and David

Without a Song, The Day would Never End: Elvis Aaron Presley When World War II finally ended in 1945, Elvis Aaron Presley was 10 years old. This shy musical prodigy won a singing contest at the Mississippi-Alabama Fair. His prize? Five dollars and free tickets to the rides. Elvis was considered to be a well-mannered, quiet boy who was close to his mother. Music was his consuming passion before he was a teenager. His religious faith was also a defining and enduring influence. Although many people were still living close to the last military base where they were posted during the war, many were looking forward to establishing new lives after the […]

Spreading the Spirit

Prestige The Hammersmith Apollo is a venue with prestige. Literally, everyone has played there and David gets to join those ranks. London’s premier theater venue was the stage for David’s biggest show in the U.K. in front of over 5,000 people, a show that I was fortunate enough to witness, even if it was only 30 minutes long. To be able to have David in my own country performing at that sort of venue is a blessing and a suitable measure of just how far he has come in 15 months. Long-term music careers are not built overnight and David is making certain headway with his. The future sounds ever […]

This Week in ArchuWorld”>vlog Is there ever a dull week in Archuworld? Apparently not, as this week included not only a new video of Touch My Hand, but a much-anticipated performance on American Idol. The TMH video was greeted with mixed reviews amid speculation that this will be the next single. The highlight of the week, without question, was the Wednesday night appearance on AI. (This HQ version is courtesy of MJsBigBlog). David described himself in a new vlog as nervous being back on that big stage. It was “where I got judged every week, so it was pretty freaky.” He also had to face those same judges: “Oh my gosh, […]

It’s an Inside Job

It’s a marvel the world keeps spinning Sometimes I wonder how The angels must be winning In spite of what we humans still allow. What passes for a good idea Just amazes me And how it’s wrapped and sold to us Is simply trickery. And along comes David, So beautiful to see Captivating audiences from sea to shining sea! But look into those eyes, my friend And look into them deep You’ll see that it’s an inside job And he intends to keep…. Our souls together, whole Wrapped up in a fleecy All snuggly in his heart Wherein we share his peace. Yup, it’s an inside job Within that outer beauty Laughing ‘cross the stage he goes Shaking his little booty! And you can laugh at me, you see It really doesn’t matter If I’m the […]

Reno: A Reflection from Silverfox

In my own words..Reno, etc. I often wonder what I’m doing & why. Then I realize I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else at this time in my life. Besides bringing me joy, excitement and wondrous music with his exquisite voice, I have formed many friendships, some of which will be lifelong friendships. It’s the bond we share, the love for David. This special human being, the enigma that is David James Archuleta. I can’t imagine my life without him in it. Reno.. where shall I start? The Grand Sierra Resort Hotel is a beautiful, huge, sprawling place. Walking into the hotel, I was thinking of David’s future, […]

Nor’easter Hits Northampton – River’s Reflections

I felt like the Postal Service. Even a nor’easter blizzard that lived up to its hype could not keep DJ and me from mushing up to MA and getting on line at 2pm. There were 25 hardy souls ahead of us, some arriving at 9 am. The bus (amazingly they are ALL in one coach) and trailer was parked across from us and we watched the crew and Lesley’s band struggle in with their equipment. Kendra, Mike, Eli and Alex would periodically come by and assure us we were crazy. Ray, the adorable tour manager, asked those going to Buffalo to wait til 3 pm to line up per David’s […]
