Safford Sizzles!

It was HOT in Safford last night – and that was before David hit the stage to deliver another stellar performance that brought fans to their feet – and rushing the stage during TMH in hopes of actually touching his hand! Glad David had some water to cool off a little before burning up the stage with another amazing performance that capped off this week’s series of concerts. Thanks to everyone for sharing pics, vids and Periscopes so we could be there virtually and in spirit.

Safford ~ Encore!

It was a night to remember as David delivered another amazing performance in Safford! Some people don’t understand how we can go to multiple concerts because “he’ll sing the same songs again”.

They’ve obviously never been to a live David concert, because if they had, then they’d would know that it’s so much more than a set list of songs.  It’s meeting up with ArchuBuddies, attending fan lunches & dinners, gifting tickets to share the love, road trips, sleepless nights discussing every detail of each concert – it’s an EXPERIENCE.

At the concert, it’s random thoughts, stories, expressive hand motions and sharing who he is from his heart. David is a storyteller who captures our hearts with songs that not only entertain, but deliver universal messages of hope, peace and love….

And he makes every single one of us feel Beautiful :-)

We’ll get right to it with a playlist! 14 videos that capture almost every song from last night, so it’s almost like being there!

Debbie’s Concert Recap

Debbie 03

Audrey’s birthday present was David Archuleta tickets. I have to say thank you David, for the words you shared to our young women who were in attendance tonight. In a world where young women are bombarded by images and expectations of what beauty is, it is refreshing to have you share that true beauty is light that eminates from them, they will believe you and that is also why I appreciate you being able to share your love of Christ. Stay true to who you are on this journey you are on and thank you for being a great example to my daughter. And your voice is ahhhhhhmazing! :-)

David rocked the house on night #1 in Safford, AZ! The SOLD OUT crowd gave David a warm reception – literally! The venue was quite toasty, but when David started singing, everyone’s focus shifted into high gear and it turned into a party in Safford!

I was one of the first ones in Safford to get my family tickets when it was announced David Archuleta was coming to small town Safford Arizona. Sitting in row 5, my family and I were not disappointed.

He came out and sang several songs that I had not heard before. But they had a good beat and were uplifting. Then he spoke of why he chose to go on a mission and the beauty he sees in women. His comments were perfect as there are so many young women that don’t have self worth and are always “down” on themselves. I am a leader of youth and have a teenage daughter, so I live with it daily. Sometimes it takes an “idol” of his magnitude to plant that seed in their minds that it isn’t all about the outside beauty but the light that radiates from them.

Tears came to my eyes when he sang God Bless the USA…..and dedicated it to those that are serving us to keep our country free.

Humor came when he was fighting for the stage with a fly or bug. It is very hot in Arizona, so even insects want inside a building where it is cool.

I loved when he shared his stories and engaged the audience. We stood, we sang along with him, we laughed, we clapped, we cheered, we tapped our feet, but mostly we felt his love for service, God, family values, and prayer through his music.

When the CFA first announced that David Archuleta was coming to Safford I couldn’t believe it!! It was too good to be true. Usually we don’t get big stars!!!
When the tickets went on sale I was right there, online, ready to grab me some good seats, and good seats they were… Front row in the center!! My 13 year old daughter was ecstatic!!!

And according to my 13 year old daughter, the temperature wasn’t the only thing that was hot at the David Archuleta concert!! (108 degrees)

With an unobstructed view in the front row, tonight’s concert was magnificent! Even a cute little bug flying around the stage wanted to get in on the action! Original songs like Crush and Beautiful mixed in with a few others, like a Disney Tarzan melody, my personal favorite, God bless the USA, and 7 years kept the audience on their feet and quite a few girls screaming their affection. After the last song, David went around the stage and my daughter was able to be one that was able to “touch” David’s hand!!

Afterward, Brady, the Guitar player, came out and my daughter and her friend got a picture with him!! Fantastic show!!!

Taiwan Tour?

Patty Ann found this little gem on Facebook – looks like there may be a visit to Taiwan August 11-17.  This posting needs a google translation – and we’ll be checking into this item and bringing you more info as it becomes available.

Don’t Bug David!

Bug

Apparently David’s music drew the attention of a curious bug that flew around the stage, and you can see David swatting at it in some of the vids. This isn’t David’s first close encounter with a bug – remember the Manila vlog? Thanks to Joanie who remembered it was Manila and not Alaska lol! Check the 5:00 min. mark.

Get ready for night #2!  Will we get a change in the set list? Might there be a new song debuted? Tune in tomorrow to find out!  Thank you to all the fans who shared their pics, vids, periscopes and concert recaps – we appreciate it! It’s almost like being there!

David performs like a Rock Star, yet his heartfelt storytelling shows his softer, humble side – he’s definitely a keeper!
