That  (US) Thanksgiving Weekend thing…


For the widespread fanbase, the Thanksgiving holiday  (along with short lead time) may unfortunately pose difficulty with many who would otherwise travel and be there WITH BELLS ON!! :( Here’s hoping  that for all who can’t make it, many vids (HD of course ;)   ) will be a reality!!

* * * * * *

Meet a few of the artists who will be there along with David:

Kevin Olusola

RSO Event Buzz!

David Archuleta and Lexi Walker sing ‘A Whole New World’ duet

Compiled by Sarah Petersen, Deseret News ~SOURCE~

A YouTube video of the duet was posted on Walker’s YouTube channel Monday. Archuleta also posted about the event on his Instagram account Monday.

The video had 700 views at the time of publication with several comments.

“Oh my goodness! That is THE most beautiful voice I have ever heard — adults, children and everyone included,” Aixa Hayes commented on the YouTube video.

Additional songs were performed at the Rising Star Outreach event, including “God Help the Outcast” and “Prayer of the Children.”

Walker has become well known for her performance in Alex Boye’s viral cover of “Let It Go.” She has since appeared on “Good Morning America” and “America’s Got Talent.”

Archuleta most recently released his version of Stephanie Mabey’s song “Glorious,” which is featured in the film “Meet the Mormons.”

A Pathway Of Hope Memory/Reminder from Ron Gunnell~

Yesterday Ron Gunnell tweeted an Instagram pic of the RSO David Archuleta Pathway of Hope located in India outside the childrens’ school.

Who has a brick on the pathway? Another good question: Who remembers what was written on the brick you purchased for the pathway?
Below is a portion from my past post-> : FEB. 5TH, 2011  with information on FOD’s  contributions during this time! What a Glorious time that was as David’s fans are forever so enthusiastic in their support and giving!!

11 New Bricks and 1 Child Sponsored !

I’ve seen and met angels wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives” ~Tracy Chapman~

In our short campaign for the Pathway of Hope, our FOD “angels” came through in a big way raising enough money for 11 new bricks! There was also a donation to sponsor a child! The grand total for bricks = $570.00 (11 bricks plus an extra $20.00 for their general fund) and one participant who has sponsored a child bringing our grand total to $930.00!!

The inscriptions submitted and voted on by all of you are in! I, in a very remedial “paint program” kind of way, made a little picture to show you how our inscriptions will appear on the bricks. What do you think? Was your submission one of the top 11? They are a great representation of  how David Archuleta has inspired us, and how we hope to inspire all those who walk the Pathway of Hope in India. A sincere and grateful “Thank You” to all!

RePosting Patti A.’s  RSO Event vids

I haven’t quite been able to get my jaw back in it’s normal position after dropping along with blotting the tears after watching/listening to David’s performances from Friday night.  I can’t say enough about how beautiful he sounds. His voice is just exquisite! Thank you again, Patti for sharing your vids. I’m re posting them today for continued enjoyment, and I’ve nestled them in a little playlist so the 3 just continue. Hope that’s ok? ;)

* * * * *
Ending today with a “Riddle” replay. Gwen and Patti shared that David also sang “The Riddle” on Friday night, and since there isn’t a vid of that song, I’m dipping back into 2009 when he sang it throughout the MKOC tour. I truly love this Five For Fighting song which talks about searching for the meaning of life as we pass through. David sang it on tour with such joy~ I’d love to hear him sing it live again someday. :) This is from (my) one show when I traveled to Waukegan. It was a magnificent show! Thx Laurie for your vid!

Have a great Wednesday, everyone! I’ll be here once again tomorrow, and also here to update if needed. :)
