Where’s David? At the Cheesecake Factory!

David has been out and about town as confirmed by people tweeting random sightings of him.  This girl had a reason to be jealous of her mom!

Here’s Proof!

Fan responses started rolling in:

The Cheesecake Factory pic led to another twitter discussion about David’s belt – it looked familiar, and I thought he wore it in a Bench photo shoot – I was WRONG – but I didn’t mind having to scroll through all the Bench photos to find that out lol!  We do our research here!!

Mary Dee came to the rescue with 2 pics of David wearing the same (or very similar) belt while in the Philippines filming Nandito Ako.

Here are a few vids from David’s visit to South Mall – you can see THE BELT!

Where’s David? Lake Catholic High School

– Did David sing Crush here?

Well we know that David isn’t a grad of Lake Catholic High School, but it’s possible that he did stop by for an impromptu concert, or at least a song – his baby, Crush!

Kelli Got To Meet David!

Yesterday we posted a pic of David with a pretty blonde girl and everyone wondered who she was?  She’s the Executive Assistant at Seventy3 Creative and she tweeted to let Archie fans know that she’s only a friend!

So there you have it – mystery solved!  She’s says she’s just a fan, though she appears to also be a fangirl!

This next pic is not of David – but the David-look-alike, Austin Mahone!  Austin cut his hair for the cover of his new song and some people think he looks like David – what do you think?

MoTab: Easter Handel’s Messiah

Several Archies tweeted the link to this beautiful Easter version of the Hallelujah Chorus – makes me wish that the MoTab would invite David back as a guest artist!

Ready For Easter?

As we all hurry to boil eggs and get the Easter egg dye ready, find the Easter baskets and plastic eggs to fill with candy for the egg hunt and put the finishing touches on a delicious Easter dinner, we are reminded of a certain someone who would soon be donning a bunny suit and scampering into a waiting van with a little hop-skip and shut the door!

– screencap from Nandito Ako

Who would like to find this in their Easter Basket?

Or this?

 

Maybe this will do?

Hopefully the Easter Bunny is good to you and brings you all kinds of goodies!

And may the blessings of Easter be with all of you!

*  *  *  *  *

Wishing everyone a happy Celebration Saturday as we prepare for Easter tomorrow!  I wonder if David will be participating in an Easter Egg hunt?  Seeing the Bunny Suit makes me want to watch Nandito Ako again!  I’d like to find a NA dvd in my Easter Basket!

Joanie will be back tomorrow with the Easter Sunday post, so enjoy a blessed Easter with family and friends and gear up for next week when we’ll hopefully get more tweets, pics or even a vlog!  Happy Easter everyone!

Sweet Tweets!

– David & Papi Wili – credit David Archuleta

We’re not just getting tweets from David – we’re getting two tweets in a row!  One in Spanish & one in English!

Then, for those of us who were slacking on our 2-year plan and never learned Spanish like we said we would *GUILTY* there came the English translation:

What a beautiful photo of David and his Papi – and how amazing it must have been to carry on a conversation entirely in Spanish!  David called it a talk/interview – if there was really an interview, I hope it gets posted somewhere!

Fan response was swift and observant:

Fans also noticed some uncanny resemblances:

It’s wonderful that David is tweeting on a regular basis and about subjects that are close to his heart like family and music!  Keep those tweets coming David- we can’t get enough!

Wishing you a Blessed Good Friday

Seventy3 Creative

– David & Kelli Sprunt – credit Seventy3 Creative

This picture of David and a pretty blonde surfaced on Facebook and people wondered, “Who is that girl?”  Well fans were quick to provide links to a site for a company called Seventy3 Creative which provides artist development services and event marketing and production.  It lists “music and music videos” as a service, but I’m not sure if it would be considered a “label’ in the traditional sense of the term.

The company appears to be based in Utah and lists connections to several artists with Utah roots such as Imagine Dragons and Neon Trees.  This is all well and good, but what really caught our eye was the pic of David (apparently wearing the same shirt he wore in his selfie with Papi Wili) with Seventy3 Creative’s Executive Assistant Kelli Sprunt:

 

David  is featured in their banner on the homepage of the site and also gets a mention on the “About” tab:

Speculation has already started about David’s connection to this company – is he signing with them to use their services?  Are they managing some aspect of his career?  Will there be an album and a music video??  Perhaps a concert??  All of this is fun to think about as we are all anxious to see David make new music and get back to touring and live concerts.  Realistically it will probably be a while til that happens given the immense amount of coordination and planning any or all of these projects would require.

But keep an eye out for Seventy3 Creative – because they seem to be keeping an eye on David – and when it comes to David, we know the eyes have it!

A David Sighting at the Banana Leaf!

What is the Banana Leaf?  Is it a restaurant?  What kind of restaurant?  Where is it?  More fan super-sleuthing by Kimk revealed that it is a restaurant in Provo, UT featuring the cuisines of Singapore and Sri Lanka.  David has not lost his taste for adventurous eating – who knows?  Maybe we’ll get a food tweet soon!

I love all of the performances from the MKOC Tour – and to think they were two years ago!  He made the announcement that he was going on a mission at this very same show in SLC!  There wasn’t a dry eye in the room!  What an emotional performance of CEM!  A perfect vid to watch as we celebrate a blessed Good Friday.

Focus on Facebook ~ David Gonzales

David from Texas shared some amazing pics and collages that fans sent in to share on the FOD Facebook site!  So many creative and talented Archies!

VLOG! Ribbon in the Sky

After the Duffy’s Hope event and the spontaneous Ribbon in the Sky performance at Crabby Dick’s – David wanted to give us a “clean take of it” – OH MY!  This was really the only full version of a song that he’s included in a vlog.  Hopefully he thinks this is a good way to share his music with us in the future – singing vlogs!  He did ask us for suggestions of songs he could sing in vlogs so maybe we should start sending them in!

Spending time visiting places in the Philippines as well as other countries in Asia made for some wonderful memories!  Hope there are many, many more to come!

*  *  *  *  *

Hope everyone is enjoying a Blessed Good Friday and listening to David’s music!  Love the double tweet from David today!  And that picture with Papi Wili – too cute!  We can see that David still favors plaid and that it rubbed off on Papi – or maybe Papi inspired David to wear plaid!  The family resemblance is so strong!

Thanks to DFT for sharing all of the wonderful collages and photos from our FOD Facebook page – always love to see creative Archies at work!

I’ll be back tomorrow with the Saturday post – it may have a Easterish theme!
