One Year Ago Today

On April 26th, 2009, David was in Newcastle, UK, as the “warm-up” performer for the band McFly. Just before his trip, many of us were wondering if he would perform Angels, a song that is practically a British Anthem…and if the UK audience would accept this young American singing “their” song.  Well, let’s look back and see how that turned out.

Full Circle

Being the crazy ODD Idol fan that I am, the recent season 8 finale got me thinking about what has transpired in the life and career of David Archuleta since that fateful night, almost a year ago, when he came in second to David Cook during the 7th season of American Idol. Performances and appearances number in the hundreds since then, and there have been a number of moments that have been game changers. AI Tour Summer 2008 This annual tour takes the finalists across America. Since David had already signed a record contract, not only was he touring, he was recording every chance that he got for his […]

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 […]

A (Fan) Tale of Two Cities”> The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) is gorgeous, affectionately called the Armadillo, and patterned after the Sydney Conference and Exhibition Centre (pictured in Vee’s avi.) The SECC is near the banks of the Clyde River and a winner of multiple awards in the UK for venues. Glasgow is a city with great style. The Cunard Shipping Line was founded in Glasgow and that the liners Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth, QE2 and the Royal Yacht Britannia were all built on the River Clyde at Clydebank. Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the world-famous architect and designer, was born in Glasgow in 1868. His work can be seen in many locations in […]

A (Fan) Tale of Two Cities

The Edinburgh Corn Exchange was rustic and agricultural. It was originally a building where farmers and merchants traded cereal grains. Such trade was common in towns and cities of Great Britain until the late 19th century.  As  trade became centralized in the 20th century many such buildings began to be used for other purposes such as meetings, banquets, and concerts. We arrived by train at the Slateford stop on the Scots Rail line between Glasgow Central and Edinburgh Waverly stations. It was a two-minute walk to the venue and people were streaming in by foot from five different directions. In line waiting to pick up our tickets, we talked to […]

Taking Hold in the U.K.

All learning experiences have two phases: taking in and taking hold. The easy part is to absorb and assimilate information; the tricky part, the dividing line between those who observe and those who do, is taking hold of all that has been learned and creating maximum results. David has now entered the second phase of his learning journey; he is taking hold of his destiny made evident by his performances the past two days in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland. He has wrapped his arms around the opportunities of his journey and he is making his first solo flights. Oh, yes, he still has his ground crew and he will vacillate somewhat […]
