Denver Fan Dinner at The Cheesecake Factory Organized By Shelley
If you’re able to be in Denver for David’s show on March 9th, 2016, Shelley (@Shell_eeeyyy ) has a great pre-concert dinner invitation for you!! Click below to head over and let her know if you’ll be there! It’s bound to be a blast!
New blog post from Matt Carter about the upcoming duets on AI featuring past contestants and I couldn’t agree with him more re: his David Archuleta and some others he mentions. David would be so perfect to “duet” with one of the Idol hopefuls! Feel free to click “source” to head over and leave Matt a comment!
Ever since “American Idol” eliminated the results show on Thursday nights, one of the things that they have really struggled with is figuring out a proper way to honor many of the people who previously were a big reason for the show’s success. Luckily, we’re glad to see now that the Fox series is clearly coming up with some clever ways around that.
The network has announced that over the next two weeks, some stars from past seasons of the show are going to take to the stage to perform duets with some of the contestants who are taking part this time around. Let’s begin with February 11. PerBillboard, Fantasia Barrino, Ruben Studdard, Scotty McCreery, Caleb Johnson, Lauren Alaina, and Nick Fradiani will all be returning to do some duets. Some of these people were featured earlier this season, and for Fradiani we’re thrilled that he’s getting even more love as the reigning champion, even if he doesn’t have an album out just yet.
Meanwhile, for the February 18 show we’ll be getting a roster that includes Constantine Maroulis, Haley Reinhart, Chris Daughtry, Kellie Pickler, Jordin Sparks and David Cook. We really dig most of the people that are on here. There are a lot of great singers in here like Haley, Fantasia, and Lauren who don’t always get a lot of the limelight on the show these days (even Fantasia is a past winner and consistently puts out great albums). Also, there’s a nice assortment of winners.
We do still have a wishlist of people to see before the series comes to a close this year, and it includes Kelly Clarkson (who we already know is coming back), Adam Lambert, David Archuleta, Crystal Bowersox, Jennifer Hudson, and Jena Irene. We’d also be pretty thrilled if we could see some people like Katharine McPhee and Katie Stevens, who have become more famous as of late for their acting than their music.

Saturday February 6th Post
“Start Where You Are”
Today’s quote by Arthur Ashe was inspired by David’s post earlier this week. Whether or not his quoted words were from Ashe’s quote, or from a different source, they offer good food for thought! I thought about how “starting where you are” somewhat parallels his writing session where “Numb” was born. As he shared this past fall, in shows prior to singing “Numb,” he was in a frame of mind where he wasn’t sure he “wanted to do this anymore.” Writing the song about those feelings seems like a new beginning ( getting started) … a new approach to continuing but not in a way where he’ll feel like he’s “losing himself” as he felt in the past… “start where you are~” Kim and Miss Bianca also shared some great ideas in comments yesterday:
What are your thoughts about the quote? Continue to share in comments.

Rolling in the Deep: Pancakes and Conversation
Isabeau Miller posted this fun & delicious looking photo Thursday on Instagram. Mmmm a deep stack of pancakes accompanied by “deep conversation!” What could be better? Hmmm wonder what the “deep” conversation was about? The instagram location is marked as “Big Al’s” and because (like David) I’m always up for food, I looked up “Big Al’s” … just in case I ever happen to be in the Nashville area. What a cute place! Looks like it’s a true neighborhood cafe! Click below to see the menu! I need one of those magical transport thingys! * * * * * *
LadyV Shares “Zootopia” With David ~ Did she find it relatable?
David’s music collaborator and friend Lady V (Victoria Horn) tweeted David the link to the Trailer #2 link for Zootopia. Zootopia is the new Disney film set to be released on March 4th! In the mammal metropolis of Zootopia, Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) enlists herself in the Zootopia Police Department. In order to solve the case of a missing otter, she ends up forming an unlikely partnership with con artist Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) where they also come across a savage outbreak. SOURCE~ WIKI The trailer shared shows a pretty humorous encounter between a quick little rabbit wanting to get things done with a very friendly and able but S L O W W O R K I N G SLOTH! Pretty funny! * * * * *

Request for Healing Thoughts and Prayers~
I am so very sad to be posting this news, but I believe that when we come together in support and belief, we are strengthened and good things… miracles can happen!It was devastating to lose our fellow David Archuleta fan/friend Jennifer Barry, suddenly and tragically this past summer. Now, her husband and son are facing a new crisis and fight. Sean, their son who is 10, was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma ( bone cancer.) Sean has already began chemotherapy while they wait further results. If you are so inclined to pray, or offer thoughts of healing and well wishes, I know they would so greatly appreciate it. May God’s blessings and peace be with them through this journey and fight! As DavidDFT offered in the FOD comment on Christians fb, page stated: “CRUSH cancer, Sean!” Below is the fb post that Christian shared, and the link to Sean’s Caring Bridge site. Christian Barry added 40 new photos — at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
My son Sean’s MRI a few weeks ago escalated to more tests which confirmed the swelling below his knee is caused by a malignant tumor. He has bone cancer. Specifically Osteosarcoma. While more testing is being done to determine what stage his cancer is at, he was started on chemotherapy immediately. He is currently in his first week of a 10 week treatment plan which will be followed by surgery to repair the damage. I wasn’t sure Sean would forgive me for giving him devastating news a second time in 6 months. He wiped the tears from my cheek and comforted me. Kids are amazing!

Richard is “Imagine” Remembering
I saw this tweet and all I could think of is AI Season 7. 2008. David Archuleta. Imagine. It was a moment like no other and forever will be~ :) With that, I’ll close with an “Imagine” more recent and no less beautiful! ~Credit: Shelley So sorry the post is later than I intended, but it’s been a busy past few days in RL here. I’ll be around this weekend with one more new puzzle and updates if needed.
