David & Football

It’s Superbowl Sunday so here’s a David & football connection!

- Sunbowl 12.31.09

– Take the hand off and run it in for a touchdown!  Sunbowl 12.31.09

And here’s my favorite David & football connection, because I was there! David hasn’t sung the National Anthem at a Superbowl game YET – but he did a bang up job at the Pro-Bowl in 2009!

For all of you football fans rooting for your favorite team – may you have enough food, family and friends to make the day unforgettable! GO TEAM!

Pastel will be back tomorrow with the Monday post!

Remember the red NORD?  For those who attended any of the David/Demi concerts, the red NORD was a fixture on the stage!  We always tried to guess which side of the stage it would be on and hoped our seats were right in front! *  *  *  *  * jlb ig *  *  *  *  *

UPDATE:  Saturday 01/31/15


Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 8.52.34 PM Oh dear!  Well I hope that week is over and David gets back on Twitter & IG!  I do see how he might want to limit distractions while he’s writing and recording, but we all hope he doesn’t stay away too long!

B8oFWOVCMAAnRzP DA Stephanie There was a more detailed explanation on David’s FB page where he posted the same photo: Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 9.16.26 PM OOOH we may get a blog next week!  We’ll have to keep our eyes out for that!  Always nice to hear/read David’s perspective on things – a blog on minimizing the use of Social Media would be very interesting coming from an artist who basically sets Social Media on fire every time he tweets or posts on IG & FB haha! :-)

The Archies were out in FORCE Friday night to take Twitter by storm!  It didn’t take long to get a WWTT as well as a US TT!  The Go-Getters still GOT IT! It was wonderful to see so much participation and it was extra special because fans added a personal touch to their tweets posting pics, graphics and quotes that illustrated what “Moving Forward” meant to them – truly inspirational!

What an awesome trending party!  And of course we have to share the amazing pics, graphics and quotes in a slideshow!  So much love for David shown in these personal images – as you scroll through them you can see how each on reminds us of David moving forward in his career and his life – we’re in for a wild ride when the new music debuts!

A huge thank you to Gwen, Pocoelsy, DFT and the rest of the Trend Team, and everyone who participated in the trending party and to all who provided these lovely images to enhance their tweets – I tried to capture as many as I could – 118 to be exact – there were a bunch! Credit to all those who posted.

Magic Mics

alwaysmakingmusic Mics IG I’m no microphone expert, but an AK47 sounds intimidating!  Who knew there were so many choices when it comes to mics!  Well, it looks like the “563 and C800 tied for first place”.   It’s so exciting to think of David selecting his microphones and preparing for his vocal session!  There’s amazing music on the horizon – what a great time to be in Nashville!  Do we have any Archies in Nashville? *  *  *  *  *

Making Music In Nashville

Love seeing all the FB & IG posts popping up from artists in Nashville who are working with David!

Sunset Studios Looks like the same outfit from yesterdays pic – he’s certainly well dressed for a recording session!  Maybe he was recording a cover of JT’s Suit & Tie lol. Look who else recorded at Sunset Blvd Studios – Keith Urban!

gab trap IG Great pic – but ouch that extra T!  Looks like David is working with a variety of artists in Nashville – he’s dressed more casually for this pic – gotta love the hashtag #urbanpop :-) *  *  *  *  *

David is playing a Yamaha keyboard for this performance, but it is arguably one of his best vocals – it’s CRAZY GOOD! Crazy @ KASBAA HK (via: JRforDA2011) *  *  *  *  *

*  *  *  *  * So exciting to see all the music related posts from Nashville!  There is new music coming our way!  I’m trying to imagine what kind of music David is recording – pop, urban pop, soulful jazz, a little bit country & a little bit rock-n-roll?  No matter the type of music, we know it will be AWESOME!  Please let there be a tour when the album is released!  Just putting it out there lol! I’ll be back with an update tomorrow if there’s more news to share!
