HaPpY bIrThDaY KALEI !!!!!
Happy Birthday to our wonderful, talented, terrific, endlessly energetic, perfectly positive, wildly witty, stupendously supportive, mahhhhvelous adorable Hawaiian, fellow MOD, and forever Fan Of David Archuleta, Kalei!!! Kalei is the consummate cheerleader whose joy and bubbly exuberance for David and his music are infectious to all the fellow fans. Kalei is the hostess with the mostest who works with her efam diligently to plan the best fan lunches ever!!! Her efforts this past November lead to a most incredibly awesome and memorable fan lunch in St George!!
Kalei’s concert recaps complete with photos and videos read like the best detailed effervescent short stories that leave you yearning for more…and yearning for a DA concert experience with her the next time! We are so blessed to have her on our FOD MOD Squad team and are looking forward to more “DA” adventures together in 2017!
Kalei was able to see David a nice handful of times in 2016 ~ Here are a few more memorable moments with the fans, David and Nathan, too!
Kalei’s 2016 concert adventures ended with David’s last tour stop in Sacramento just before Christmas. It was a very special ending to a fantastic year with the cherry on top coming at the VIP as David addressed her by name.
Mary Lou created a special tribute to Kalei’s “happiness” last year and I think it calls for a repeat in this post this year…because it’s her birthday and because she’s a happy gal! CLICK ON THE PIC.
Wishing you a fun-filled day, Kalei, complete with some yummy cake! May it be the beginning of a “new year” filled with fun , new adventures, a concert perhaps in Hawaii (hoping for you), and that new David Archuleta single & cd to be playing in your ears VERRRRRY SOOOOOON!!!! xoxoxo
Happy 5th year Anniversary Nandito Ako!!!
IT’S BEEN 5YEARS ALREADY SINCE THE FIRST DAY/EPISODE ONE OF NANDITO AKO AIRED ON TV5! WOW! Kalei reminded me of this fact late last night. What a birthday present!! On that day, (also her birthday), David Archuleta as Josh Bradley officially came into our home and hearts, along with Holly, Anya, Chit, and the rest of the cast on Channel 5 mini series. I guess because we had followed the filming over the course of January (2012), I didn’t remember right off the bat that the actual premier of the Filipino show starring David didn’t actually begin airing until well into the month of February!! In fact, David was on his way back to the US the day episode #1 was broadcast.
What fan could ever forget the emotions that welled up inside and flooded across social media that day… and every day for the next month to follow?! David had accomplished so very much!! In such a short time frame David proved not only to himself but to the masses that he was a true actor, one to be believed and one who was lifted and embraced.
And so episode 1 began with David as Josh Bradley on stage~ “So when you find your true love, hold onto it and never let go, cause that’s what I would do.” <— Oh Josh, (and My Dear Writer) ~ you sure knew how to capture our hearts. Today in honor of this anniversary, I’m posting the trailer to the series below! So. Many. Memories!

And of course, David so beautifully in fine Tagalog, sang the title song “Nandito Ako”~ this video was his live performance at Talentadong Pinoy.
