What an amazingly busy week it’s been in the Archuworld.
Friday was back home day where David was interviewed by the Herald Extra and made the Deseret News target=”_blank”> prior to doing his sound check for the “Charity Begins At Home” event. “Charity Begins At Home” honors Utah military causes and families.
Saturday brought droves of fans from near and far to the internet, anticipating David singing the target=”_blank”>Star Spangled Banner at the Real Salt Lake-Colorado Rapids soccer match.
David was back on stage after the game which ended in a tie to perform a four-song concert including target=”_blank”>Touch My Hand, target=”_blank”>Crush, target=”_blank”>A Thousand Miles and target=”_blank”>Zero Gravity. His performance was also covered by the local target=”_blank”>Fox News station.
As David fans from around the world started shifts to catapult David into the Tweeterwall of Fame, news from David started arriving about the upcoming FanBundle. A fight to the finish proved the ArchAngels are a mighty force to reckon with as David claimed the top spot and was declared Mr. Twitter Universe with 63,501 votes !!
By Monday morning bright and early David was back at the airport, flying off to Washington DC. David was invited by Daphna Ziman, founder of Children Uniting Nations to perform and speak at the CUN Conference. Again David made headlines, from some rather news worthy sources, USNEWS and USA Today.
David accompanied himself on the piano while performing fan favorite “Imagine”, as well as the an a capella version of “ target=”_blank”>Prayer Of The Children” which resulted in a spontaneous standing ovation.
And even David’s Monday night dinner was the talk of the town:
Power players Gabrielle Union, Terrence Howard, David Archuleta, Ben Chavez (of Civil Rights fame) and Shawn King dropped in to enjoy some Italian fare in honor of Daphna Ziman and Russell Simmons and to celebrate their earlier work on the Hill during the “Keeping the Promise to our Children” conference – promoting student mentoring and child welfare. (Teatro patron, Mark Freeman, snapped this shot of Howard between courses.)
The atmosphere was casual, and the food great as always. Teatro may not have won the nod at the RAMMYs, but these celebs sure knew it was the spot for some influential interacting.
Monday also confirmed additional solo concerts added to his already busy summer.
- July 28 at Byham Theater in Pittsburgh, PA
- August 6 at Coronado Performing Arts Center in Rockford, IL
- August 9 at Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls, SD
- August 10 at The Rave Eagles Club in Milwaukee, WI.
Tuesday was a day of celebration in Archuworld as the release of the eagerly anticipated FanBundle found it’s way onto iTunes.
David himself became his own best promoter as blogs, vlogs, twitters and voice messages sailed across the airways.
@DavidArchie Well all right guys I’m going to bed. Don’t forget about the iTunes digital bundle!! Night! I hope I can fall asleep… heh..1:48 AM Jun 9th from web
@DavidArchie The fan pack is now on iTunes!! Touch My Hand Video, A Thousand Miles unplugged, and Zero Gravity now available! Hope you guys enjoy it!10:27 AM Jun 9th from web
Mirror Mirror on the wall – and speaking of vlogs, David’s tendency to be distracted makes this one of his funniest.
As if his thanking his fans through his vlogs was not enough, David continued to thank his fans through other means.
@DavidArchie Wow thanks you guys for all the feedback!! I’m happy to hear you guys like it!! 🙂 🙂 :)! Gonna try and take a quick nap now though haha10:41 AM Jun 9th from web
The FanBundle quickly climbed the iTunes charts and by mid morning Touch My Hand landed comfortably on top as the #1 Music Video.
David’s pals, Brooke White, and Jordin Sparks all tweet about Archie’s fan pack:
TheRealJordinIf you havent…make sure you go pick up @davidarchie ‘s fanpack on iTunes. I GOT MINE!
realbrookewhite Hi @davidarchie! All your fans got me excited about your fan pack, can’t wait to hear zero gravity! gonna go get it now:-) Yay!
David was asked some questions at the end of the UNC Gala, his responses reminded us of how truly real David continues to be.
And what would the week be like if there wasn’t a little controversy surrounding David…this next item stirred the pot in ArchuWorld as fans debated whether it was a good or bad thing for David to be voted one of the 7 Sexiest Latin Reality TV Stars
Spectacular evasiveness left everyone wondering where in the world was David Archuleta? Tweets would reveal he was delayed at an airport after the Washington D.C UNC event, but no word on when or where he was flying. Cryptic tweets followed and turned Archuworld upside down with laughter.
Finally ~ later Thursday afternoon, David would reveal he’d safely arrived in Los Angeles to do some recording and writing. With confirmation straight from David, we can all look forward to a little something special this Holiday season, when David releases his first Christmas Album.
@DavidArchie Saad. No TV screen on this airplain. So no instruction video with that red headed delta flight attendant. I like that video lol.
And in reply, Delta Airlines tweeted David:
