Sunday Slideshow

For this short Sunday post, I thought I would just post a number of random pictures in a slideshow from our media files.  No rhyme or reason to all 140 of them :)

A Not So Silent Hymn

roadtripWhile on the road for work last week, I took the opportunity to give my entire playlist a good spin during several long drives.  It was also a good opportunity to kickstart my brain season with holiday music ~ it helps gives me a dose of reality that the season is quickly approaching.

With that extra time, I enjoy listening to some the David tracks that I give a “pass” to normally.  Just like each of you, I have my faves, but I decided to give the “B-roll” some extra air time.  And when you do this, the B-roll suddenly starts to increase in plays when you have those WhyHaventIListenedToThisMore? moments.

When David was on his My Kind of Christmas Tour, that exact thing happened when I heard The First Noel.  Its such a simple song, with no dramatic bridges or unusual licks. It’s a lovely hymn that we can all sing at the top of our lungs together at church, but in his interpretation, David takes it down to a quiet whisper.  And that humming.   It’s perfectly placed.  It becomes a lullaby of sorts.

Watch David transform an office of Type A’s instantly into a pile of goo at the Forbes’ mini concert in 2011.   Within a span of 4 minutes no less.

How does he do that?

Thank you Kalei!

I want to personally thank Kalei for her very meticulous recount of her impressions of the BYU-Hawaii Fireside from last week and for uploading the vids of the entire discussion and Q&A period.  I know that Kalei worked into the wee hours of the night on Thursday to not only do this but to gather up all the other information on social media about the Fireside.  And after she put her post to bed, and slept a little, she got up the next day for a full day of work, and then returned home and worked on another jam-packed post.  Wow!

And through Kalei’s words, and David’s, we understood so much more than we did a mere week ago about David and his plan.  From Kalei’s post:

A lot has changed over the years, but all of the important things have remained the same – David is still David, all smiley, rambly and random at times, yet with a new air of maturity and self confidence – he knows who he is, where he’s going and what he wants out of life.

There will always be music, but it will be music on his terms and on his timeline – there’s no rushing the Archuleta this time around – he’s definitely a man with a plan, and all we can do is hang on for the ride of our lives.

See you tomorrow!

    Thank you ML. You’re right, I don’t listen to The First Noel half as much and it is a lovely, beautiful song…just listened to the video you posted from Forbes. Hope you all have a lovely Sunday. I’m excited to hear about the upcoming shows next weekend and what he’ll be singing!

  2. kimk says:

    Pastel good morning thank you for this wonderful Sunday post!!
    sure wish I could go this week but really happy there are wonderful Archies going so they can report back how it all was!

    oops sorry guys.. emoji failure!!

  5. Anne-Marie says:

    Good morning folks and happy Sunday! Awesome post….LOVE the slide show of David days past! That time was so exciting and I know that more exciting times are yet to be had. Looking forward to the show next week and you know there will be plenty of vids! Just can’t wait until we can all be attending a show in the future! :)

  6. Still a Fan... after all these years!! says:

    Hello FOD,
    Would someone please explain to me what that “hand sign” means.
    Seems like David and many others around him have been using it non-stop in the latest photos
    from Hawaii.
    I thought when held up to your head, it means “call me.”
    Definitely what I wish – for all of us: Call David!! Ha, ha, if only.
    A girl can dream, can’t she?
    Is it a special signal between friends or just a sign of being friendly?

    I love David; his music, his personality – there is just no one like him, but (in a good way) he so confuses me sometimes!!
    Anyhow, fantastic articles from the past few days, as always!!
    Thanks, FOD. :)

    • Kalei says:

      It’s a Shaka sign – we use it to say hi, bye, thank you and generally convey things are going well. It’s a local hand sign everyone here knows – I guess like a thumbs up sign on the sign on the mainland.

      You stick your thumb & pinky out, all other fingers down, and depending on the situation, you can just hold it steady, or shake your hand in a swivel motion. I have a VIP M&G Pic with me, jwipe, Randy aka: digitalgenius and David making a Shaka sign – I should go find it lol.

      Guys tend to use the cool gesture, just a single, short shake of the hand to signify they acknowledge you, girls tend to use multiple shakes idk why that is though lol. It’s customary when you turn your blinker on to change lanes & the person slows down & lets you in, you Shaka them to say thank you. When we’re in traffic & need to change lanes we say “just Shaka your way in” lol – it always works!

  7. Patty-Ann says:

    I knew it was a hand symbol from local Hawaiian culture, but had to look it up.
    Long and short of what it means:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaka_sign

  8. Anne-Marie says:

    Still a Fan- I was wondering that myself! lol.

  9. Lucy says:

    David must be singing Glorious with the One Voice childrens choir during the Interfaith concert! Just saw a pic of him with the choir last night, they were rehearsing, cute pic too!

    • anodrlurker says:

      So it’s still on? A few days ago it was said that the announcements were pulled for the Spain and France firesides? Unless they’re not open to the public anymore??

      • Janel aka Nellie says:

        I had said the link to it wasn’t working and wondered if it was real. Never said it was pulled, just wondered the validity of it. So, assumptions were made that it was pulled.

  14. muldur says:

    I love The First Noel Conversation. I just tweeted yesterday how much I loved the Salt Lake City performance for MKOCT. Partly because I wept through the whole thing, he had just finished telling us about Silent Night and how much it meant to him that his siblings were there with him that night and he was very emotional. And partly because vocally I don’t think I ever heard such beautiful vibrato and gorgeous bell-ringing notes. Listen to this on good headphones if you have them and especially after 3:20 or so. Those notes! His voice is just absolutely the most beautiful thing I ever heard :)

  15. Patty-Ann says:

    Yes, very beautiful.
    David can take a simple song and turn it into amazingness ♥

    Kristy Lee Cook @kristyleecook · 51m 51 minutes ago
    My new single officially comes out tomorrow!! Please request on your local stations!! “Lookin’ for a cowgirl” let’s pray they support it!

  17. anodrlurker says:

    Late post but….If I Was The Utah Office of Tourism..if you’re reading this, I thought your comment (and your name, for that matter) won the comment section!

    I totally agree with you. David’s driven so much traffic to the sites he posted about in Oahu.

    He’s so likeable and wholesome – perfect ambassador really.

    • If I was the Utah Office of Tourism says:

      I speak the truth. Let’s face it, David selling Utah would have me booking my very first trip there. He’s the Utah Celeb du Jour and everything he says about The Beehive State makes it sound so authentic and worthy of a visit.

      BTW, why is it called The Beehive State? See? David could probably answer that!

  18. ??????????????? says:

    David would have been perfect for this. He’s all but forgotten in pop music, I GUESS NOBODY REMEMBERS HOW HE OWNED IMAGINE on IDOL. Oh silly me! This isn’t targeted to LDS or connected to any of their charities. What a waste.

    Adam Lambert and More Appear in “Imagine” Video for Charity
    http://www.mjsbigblog.com/adam-lambert-appear-imagine-video-charity.htm

    ADAM LAMBERT?????

    • kimk says:

      yes but David is not out there like Adam Lambert is..
      Adam is now the lead singer for Queen think he is touring? anyway
      all about who is popular not who did it best or who is the best.
      pretty lame for sure

    • anodrlurker says:

      Ok. Wow. Makes me feel all kinds of sad David wasnt included in this. Thing is, David totally owned that song on Idol, he deserves his own video for it.

      I cannot believe this. I CANNOT. *shakes head*

      • kimk says:

        he sure did.. but like David on his vlog said.. it is all about who is important these days
        as I recall he was pretty pissed off about it too

    • anodrlurker says:

      Wow. It is for UNICEF too. David would have been awesome for this especially when he sings the part “brotherhood of man…”
      Not everyone in the video is super famous by the way….

  19. kimk says:

    speaking of what is popular Bruno Mars was on SNL last night killed it
    now his new song Uptown Funk is #2 on itunes
    wasn’t that high on the charts when it first came out really cool song
    Bruno sure is one cool cat!! :)

    • Candy says:

      BRUNO is DA MAN!! Uptown Funk is my new guilty pleasure. He sure can rock a stage!! He took a retro sound and made it so current…plus the man can move, The SNL performance was FABULOUS!

  20. kimk says:

    the tweet about David going to France on Dec 19 might not be correct too.

  21. breanne says:

    Great Sunday post Pastel!! LOVE that picture from @onevoicechildrenschoir with David surrounded by all those adorable children! :)

  22. ???????????? says:

    this is an david archuleta fan site isn,t it

    • kimk says:

      yes it is.. David seems to be very happy doing his thing now.
      I’m ok with it don’t expect anything at this point just happy if it does.
      for example he will be having his first concert back this Friday hoping for videos as it is in Utah and I live in NC.

  23. kimk says:

    ask yourself this guys.. David has been back 8 months and what one mainstream thing has he done?
    not saying he should do anything differently just don’t expect folks out there to include him in anything.

  24. kimk says:

    oh another thing AMA’s are on at 8 PM tonight ABC.. Imagine Dragons will be performing I like them and from what I recall David likes them too.

  26. Candy says:

    Great Simply Silent Sunday post Pastel, thank you!! So many great pictures in the slideshow, love walks down memory lane!
    Ha, the picture of David with the kids from the choir, took me a minute to find him. Such a cute “Wheres Waldo” picture.

  27. cq says:

    Mainstream…it was a dream I once had, lol.

  28. Grammyj says:

    David isn’t currently a mainstream artist, but he did a performance in Hawaii and will be performing in Utah this week-end. Plus he did the military tour. Not too shabby IMHO. Most singers would love to have all the opportunities that David has had. It’s all about your perspective. He sure looks happy too.

  29. Ali says:

    This will be an unpopular opinion with some but there’s not one single “mainstream” opportunity that I would be willing to wish for David (including that Imagine video) in place of the BYU-H video we got this weekend or the Oh Ven Oh Ven rehearsal video from when he was on his mission. In those performances, I truly felt his heart. It may not be the path I envisioned for him back in 2008 but I am not David and I had no way of knowing where things would lead or where his inspiration really came from. I realize that this means not as many people know about what he’s doing now but David’s talent has never been dependent on number of admirers. I just know that I am deeply moved by his dedication and artistry. I don’t need the approval of the masses to know what is worthwhile.

    Just my personal perspective on things.

    • anodrlurker says:

      I get what you mean, Ali. I was so moved by that BYU-H video too.

      That being said, with how it has affected me , I wish the same impact and goodness to be felt by many more people around the world. That is my main reason for wanting David to go mainstream again – it is not about mass approval. It’s about changing the world by doing what he does does best and seeing that it reaches a lot of people.

      He is such a light for everyone. As my mom would say – he’ll come back to all of us, he makes so many people happy!

      • Ali says:

        I understand what you’re saying but I see some people who just constantly talk about mainstream mainstream mainstream like it’s the only thing to aim for. I’m not saying that I would dislike for David be a mainstream hit. I’m just saying it’s not necessary for me and that I haven’t needed it for me moved by his abilities.

        Certainly, the more people who know about him then the more who can be moved by his talent. There are other artists out there with talent too and they are attracting people who can be moved. I don’t know where David fits in all this at the end. All I can speak for is myself and say that to me he is doing awesome things right now. Are there additional awesome possibilities? For sure. I’m on board for all of it.

        :)

    • kimk says:

      I love both.. a lot understand what you are saying hoping for both one day
      for me guess I don’t really care as not really able to travel to go see him anymore so these videos and all are fabulous
      plus there are so many other fabulous artists like Bruno up there for example that do other things I like so I get a lot going on to enjoy.
      would be sad though if David never sang another love song
      he also sings those like nobodies business too
      http://youtu.be/qu7lvRPSWW8

    • Mango says:

      Awwww….well said. I couldn’t agree more. He is where he belongs.

    • cc halo says:

      I’ve mentioned Cat Stevens, whom I LOVED back in the 70′s and how he converted to Islam, changed his name and dropped out of music for 20 years to devote himself to his religion. I’m not saying that David would do that (he could, though), but when Stevens, now Yusuf Islam, returned to the music scene, he said that it was a misunderstanding, and that if he had to do it again he would have kept performing, just altering his performances to conform to his standards. I think that especially in light of 9/11, he realized that being in the public eye would have helped his faith better than withdrawing.

      I watched the Forbes interview that came along with the First Noel video posted above, and I noticed that when they asked about his collaboration with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, he talked about being the only “UTAHN,” not “Mormon” to do so. I’m sure that was the kind of thing he was talking about when he said that he was embarrassed to be open about his Mormonism before the mission.

      The irony is that now that he wants to be bold about his faith, he is staying in the Mormon bubble. Perhaps, he’s still shy and not ready to proclaim it to outsiders.

  30. Mango says:

    That was meant for Ali’s comment

    • kimk says:

      if David does decide to do only lds music do you think his peeps will support him? was
      thinking once he marries it might be different with the young ones going to guess lol no more stampedes etc

  31. kimk says:

    ha one thing though if you all watch the AMA’s.. I think JLo is going to do her booty song..

  32. sydnie says:

    If there’s one thing I learned from being a 1D fan (well sort of, using term loosely lol) is that fans are never totally happy about their idols no matter how hugely popular/famous & there are always those enjoy injecting pessimism/negativity & stir up angst & create drama for fandom for whatever reasons lol.

    1D just finished mega successful global soldout stadium tour earning hundreds of $millions & will again debut #1 with their 4th album (most would kill to be in their position) but people still called them flops & try to diminish their accomplishments by comparing to taylor swift’s #s.
    Their new video gets over 6 million views in little over a day but directioners r not happy it didn’t break any records and think there’s a youtube conspiracy about view counts! Go figure.
    Great to see David enjoying life & doing things his way & staying true to his standards…..he’ll always perform and do music, part of his DNA.
    As much as I love & support David, I’ve moved on from those ‘Imagine’ days long time ago.

  33. cq says:

    Oh Ali, I would tend to disagree with you, I believe that fans that still are here and other fan sites would totally agree with your statement. :)
    Mango, I understand why you would feel that way and Kim, yes, I do hope that the lds community supports David’s music career. At this time it seems that it’s the only community that he cares about. The world outside is not all bad and I hope that David can feel comfortable enough to venture out with his music career one day.

  34. sydnie says:

    To clarify I’m not saying any regular posters here are negative, I really enjoy reading different perspectives about D’s career directions.
    BUT when unfamiliar screen names (could be just a few with diff names lol) randomly pop up with nothing but sarcasms & pessimism then kind of makes you go hmmmm.

  35. sydnie says:

    I love to travel and have a flexible schedule so fine w/traveling to see David! I discoverd some random places which I nevr would’ve seen if not for David! :)

  36. sydnie says:

    Haha I’m at the Niners’ game, not sure why but can’t quite get into it so rather stalk David fansite lol. Not liking small keyboard tho.
    Thanks muchPastel for the fun Sunday post! David’s crazy ziplining upside down! :shock:

  37. kimk says:

    NEW EVENT!!??? :)

    Eileen ‏@Archugeezer 2m2 minutes ago
    What is this @David Archie performance?? Feb 28, 2015. MoTab & Sylvia McNair also there. Anybody know? http://bit.ly/1ADYkjJ via @bistrib

    More than 3,000 vocal performance students from all 50 states went through a recorded audition process, and these CHS students were selected: Christian Bowlinger, Jhanvi Patel, Michael Mock, Tanner Woutat, Brennan Tyler and Karter Dolan. They will join the other singers in Salt Lake City for a concert that will include a performance with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, David Archuleta and Sylvia McNair on Feb. 28.

  38. kimk says:

    MOTAB AND DAVID!??

    what is this.. come on Archies we need DEETS!!! :)

    • anodrlurker says:

      It’s weird that the Archies need to be super sleuths to find out where David is performing. I just don’t get it. How comes David doesn’t talk about it? (Rhetorical question, I know…..)

      Almost like…it’s a secret. LOL.

      • kimk says:

        ha what we do and YES!!

      • Just saying says:

        I don’t understand that either, anodrlurker. He hasn’t mentioned the Interfaith concert at all.

        And maybe he was invited to the Imagine project but declined, so they approached Adam Lambert instead? Just a thought.

        • anodrlurker says:

          That’s crossed my mind too. Because if we’re talking about “Imagine” and they were looking at American Idol people..well David would be the natural choice for “Imagine”. Anyway, all done now.

    @KaleiLuvsHawaii @kimak It was a full concert but not sure this will be the same type thing. On vid it says largest community sing? ha idk

  44. DAfan says:

    I honestly can’t wait until David does something non-LDS related…

    • kimk says:

      might be waiting a while..

      • IMO says:

        If LDS events keep poping up, there is be no chance of david doing a pop album. It would be little nice if he a take a LDS events a break so he can get in the studio starting working on a new album.

      • anodrlurker says:

        Which is why, as many others have said, now would be a good time to do a career-related vlog for fans who have been waiting and eagerly anticipating new music from David. Good way to maintain a professional relationship with supporters and followers. It stops all kinds of speculation due to lack of information too. #justsaying

    • Grammyj says:

      The American Choral Directors Convention happens to be in Salt Lake City this year but is not actually LDS. Because it is in Salt Lake City the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is singing but so are a lot of other choirs that aren’t LDS. It looks quite impressive if you watch the video that was posted. I think it is quite an honor that David was selected to help lead the large choir at the end of the conference. I’m not Mormon but I’m enjoying the public things he has done that are LDS a related. I love the Glorious video, the song he sang in Hawaii, and the face to face chat and “Called to Serve”. They were all very well done.

  45. IMO says:

    I hope david was not being modded with the bunch of kids haha, in BYU hawaii he was!! All thoses Mormon girls!! Like all the pics from hawaii too, david seem to love it there as well. I hope he goes back there again sometime in the future as well too. I hope david does pop songs album soon. He still have more church stuffs events on his plate again like usual this year and next year . I hope he will have find a time to make a new music and a pop album, I guess it won’t happen prolly in 2016, just my guess.

    muldur….thanks for posting the video of David singing the First Noel in SLC…..Superb…….His voice gives me chills…….I imagine that he always steps it up a notch when he is at home…It must give him and adrenaline rush……Just love the slideshow……It is so interesting to see David’s different hairstyles, different outfits and how much he had changed througout the years……He sure has matured into a fine young man…….Miss Vicki

  48. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    I am not surprised David is not in the charity video for Imagine. I think he is trying to distance himself from Idol….and Idol has not been too supportive of him either…… Miss Vicki

      new video, maybe he’ll go on Idol. I know I have my issues with
      them & how they treated David, but I would love to see him perform
      a song like that (with potential dancing :shock: :grin: ) on tv & let the
      world be knocked for a loop :grin:

    Hello Everyone!
    Hope you all are doing well :grin:

    I think it is cool that David is doing other things, of which we get
    to see videos & pics, while working on his next album. He could
    just be quiet while working on the album, but we get to hear him
    sing once in a while :grin: The Pop/Spanish music will be coming
    when it’s ready. David loves all kinds of different music, loves
    performing it. Seeing the vid’s from the Christmas performances
    last year, on his mission, he seemed so anxious to get on the stage
    again & he sounded incredible. I also think it’s wonderful he got to
    spend so much time with his family this summer. Obviously, it was
    very important to him & I’m sure to his family. I can’t wait for the
    concerts next weekend, hoping for vids of course :grin: David’s time
    is coming & everyone in the music world better bolt their socks to
    their legs, because they’ll lose em’ once they hear David. THAT VOICE,
    THAT VOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Who the heck is this girl singing on the AMA’S, never heard of
    her, not my cup of tea :roll:

      Charli XCX, Beth. She sang with Iggy Azalea on “Fancy.”
      The AMA tweets are hilarious.

        ha yeah interesting top 40 huh

        Oh, ok, lol. Guess I’m un hip, a square, a person
        of the non-groovy section of the population :roll: :grin:
        Guess I like actual singing & not all of the over the top
        sets, skimpy costumes (unless it’s a guy, jk, not really,
        well, kinda :roll: ) & certain hand gestures. That’s why
        David is such a gem. A natural find, genuine talent, a
        rare commodity, making diamonds, sapphires & pearls
        pale in comparison. The real deal :grin:

          Beth, count me in as one of the square ones! Proud supporter of only “the real deal.” *cough* DA *cough*

  54. IMO says:

    It seem that david is more happy doing LDS related songs but not regular music, how I see it going??

      • IMO says:

        Well If that case I hope david tell the truth to the fans he does not want to do pop songs anymore.

        • anodrlurker says:

          I’m going to repost this here again, pardon me folks:

          Which is why, as many others have said, now would be a good time to do a career-related vlog for fans who have been waiting and eagerly anticipating new music from David. Good way to maintain a professional relationship with supporters and followers. It stops all kinds of speculation due to lack of information too. #justsaying

        • IMO says:

          That why david lost fans because they are tired of waiting around, and we still have no information coming from him doing a pop album. He should have been in the studio working long time ago, just my gues

    • What is LDS music???
      Is it the same as Christian music????
      Just wondering!!!!

    @DavidArchie Need permission to use your Christmas tunes as background as I read kids’ Dear Soldier cards. Making video. @smiln32 Please. :)

  58. IMO says:

    David has not doing any pop songs when he got back from mission , he done nothing but only LDS songs, that is the truth. If david keep doing LDS songs and events , I think the fans will be sick tired of waiting around more for him not doing regular music, when are we gonna hear any information from him doing a Pop album?? Still a fan but if it gonna take next 2 or three for him to do a album idk if I want to hang that long like that. I hope we are able hear good news by next year is not than I guess david won’t have any time to do a album at all.

    • Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

      David has shared many times about writing POP & SPANISH
      Songs & will tour when he has his new music ready & in the mean
      time he is doing some other stuff, which we get to see videos of.
      It takes most people a year to put together an album, some only
      do an album once every 3, 4 or 5 years. He needs to put together
      the songs, record them, have them produced, put a plan together
      on how to release it, promotion, photo shoots, etc….. It takes time.
      Like I said in an earlier comment, we are fortunate that we get
      to hear videos and other info in the mean time. What the future
      will bring, I don’t know, but David will sing secular music, he said
      so and until he say’s otherwise, I’m going with that. His taste in
      music is too vast, too varied, to be confined to one style. I, for one,
      can’t wait to hear his new music :grin: So, maybe, we can give him
      a chance to put it all together :grin:

      • IMO says:

        I hope david does make a comeback, But if david goes back to college next year In the fall again and doing more LDS church stuffs like he have been doing this year and if it happens next year again, I am not going wait a another year of wAiting , well it is bye bye bye david!!

        • Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

          While I understand wondering about things
          sometimes, all you seem to do is complain about
          how David is doing things. Try to think positively
          about things, re-read my comment, try to think
          about all of the good things :grin: Give him a
          chance, ok? Everyone is entitled to their opinions,
          it’s just…… let’s look at the glass as 1/2 full :grin:
          Lots of great David music coming, have faith :grin:

        • IMO says:

          I am just posting what I think. I am sure david will be attending college again next fall and maybe he will fianlly be in the studio working again with new music and ablum around it while he is in school again idk.

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Hope everyone stays safe & toasty warm :grin:

  60. IMO says:

    Fans has been patience for two years while david was in chile , that is pretty eonugh for fans to wait but david had been not in working on new music. It is not fair for the fans to wait more and more. If I was david I would be in studio right away start working on pop album.

  61. IMO says:

    What I am saying is the truth some of u here just don’t want to believe me but that is fine , We all have to have opinions and thoughts .

  62. chocolata says:

    David has a glorious voice and sounds good singing anything. We chose the style of music we like so we decide if we want to be his fans. I don’t enjoy the LDS type things but I am his fan for the sounds, I tune out the messages I don’t maybe like. All the talk about mainstream and I think David thinks mainstream is dirty and beneath him. And to be true so much of mainstream is not wholesome and is beneath him and his glorious talent haha. Sometimes people bury themselves in religion to not deal with the mess of the world or things they want to avoid. I can’t blame them. Sometimes the news makes me ill to watch it. I would like to live in what seems to be the Utah world of people being so nice and friendly and happy all the time. Where I live is not like that haha.

  63. Marina says:

    To those who think all David does are LDS events, he is the headliner for 3 INTERFAITH concerts happening at the end of this week. I’m sure there are plenty of LDS Christmas events in the SLC area that he could have chosen to be part of. Instead he’s doing this.

    • kimk says:

      not that I mind but aren’t the folks putting on this concert lds? maybe I am incorrect just thought that for some reason.

      • Marina says:

        I’ve not seen anything indicating that. It says Tvono Productions, which I find to be headed by Vic Deauvono as producer, and 4Life Foundation. I don’t see anything in the media for either of those that talks about being LDS. Of course, some people don’t advertise their religious affiliations. It talks quite a bit about the Italian heritage of the producers and composer but not about any individual religion.

      • Marina says:

        Not that it would really matter either way what the religion is of the producers. The concert itself is about bringing together many denominations to celebrate Christmas.

        • kimk says:

          just thought it was.. don’t think this is the first year either?
          think it was on Temple Square before being at The Capitol Theater but not sure of that either

          doesn’t matter to me what he does at this point just going with the flow

        • Marina says:

          Yes, it was on Temple Square in past years. It’s not put on by the church though.

    • Marina says:

      Thanks for the article kimk, tells the story well.
      “An interfaith gathering is exactly what she’d want,” says Taryn. “To see us sitting there with our Christian neighbors. She knew the power of art and music to transcend any boundaries.”

    • Candy says:

      Is that article saying it is an LDS sponsored/produced event…or just that first year??

      • kimk says:

        think that was the first year.. not sure now but just thought it was why I said something
        nice they include other faiths think it is a great idea for sure
        like the conferences for family with the Pope

      • Marina says:

        According to the article, it was never an LDS sponsored event. The church let them use the tabernacle to host the event. The woman who was the inspiration for the first concert was a convert to LDS who moved from Italy.

        The director/producer is Vic Deveavono. His religion is not discussed. The point of the event is to bring together many different religions.

  65. kimk says:

    is there a difference between something being lds and being put on by the church?
    think Jani said that about the genealogy convention too but from what I can tell that is lds related too.
    not bad just is

    • Candy says:

      based on what the article said about the first year, I would say it was sponsored by a woman who happened to be lds, not a specific lds event?

  66. kimk says:

    well this I do know.. would give my eye tooth to be able to go to one of them and
    thank goodness for Archies and their ways
    let us pray for videos!

  67. oliveoil says:

    Maybe the reason David doesn’t promote himself at the interfaith concert is because he wants to keep the focus on celebrating the Lord. He is definitely keeping things low key, but he seems happy and very busy .

  68. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    kimk…..Thanks for posting those side by side pics of David…..now and then…..He lost his little chubby cheeks……Beth and anodrlurker….Yep …..I am square too…..Everyone just needs to get a grip…..David said he was writing pop songs for his album and I believe him……Give the guy a break…..Night all…..Miss Vicki

    BTW….David looks just too cute in the pic with all the little girls…..bet he wouldn’t be as comfortable if all those little girls were big girls his age…..If they were me thinks he would need more bodyguards……….Poor fella……Miss Vicki

  72. kimk says:

    hard to celebrate the lord if the place is empty.

  73. kimk says:

    they should just open the doors let folks in for free instead of charging so much.. pretty penny to go.

  74. kimk says:

    still thinking David wants to do it all.. no reason he can’t either.

    Alyssa ‏@trenchercas 2m2 minutes ago
    Go ahead and judge me but @DavidArchie is seriously like my #1 idol. He’s so great and inspiring okay.

  75. oliveoil says:

    Maybe the proceeds are being used for a charity. ( after paying for the venue.)

  76. anodrlurker says:

    In the context of tonight’s events, here’s hoping that David performs at the AMAs next year.

  77. Lucy says:

    I see the will he or won’t he do secular music topic came back again today, for the record I have no doubt whatsoever that he will do secular music. As for him doing a lot of church related things, it seems normal to me that he would, after all he did do a mission, makes sense that he’d be more involved in his church that before doesn’t it? Doesn’t mean that’s all he’s going to do for gosh sakes! David has always been full of surprises, so who knows what else could be in the works, I believe him when he said that he is writing pop and Spanish songs and that he wants to release new music next year, and for now, for me, that’s good enough.

    • cc halo says:

      I think that it’s possible that the Spanish song is just the one he wrote for the RootsTech convention. Not sure if there’s evidence of any other.

      • Lucy says:

        What about the snippet of a pop type song that was posted a few months back, the one that went “open my eyes” not to mention that he has sent pics and tweets that he has been writing music after he wrote and recorded the Spanish song, I call that some evidence ;)

    • anodrlurker says:

      Good points, Lucy. Was thinking about that too – of course he’d do church stuff after his mission. And yes, he’s writing pop songs. He’s said that so I do not doubt it. Hopefully said pop songs will reach the airwaves soon!

    Where’s David?!? We just had an amazing rehearsal with the @1voicechildren1 and @davidarchie! Have you… http://instagram.com/p/vxXcSbIzOz/

  79. Just enough power LEFT on my tablet to say good morning and ENJOY YOUR DAY! Nana patrol…and my charger! YES!

  80. kimk says:

    good morning folks!

    that would be cool if the concert is for charity.. especially hope it sells out if so
    Spanish clip we heard a bit of think it is the song for the music video hope it is
    I like the feel to it whatever it is about looking forward to seeing the video and hearing the song.
    as I recall there were pics of him and another RM he was writing with someone he was at the MTC with?
    http://davidarchuletavn.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/david-archuleta-with-spanish-songwriter-jacob-escobar-at-casa-vieja-restaurant-4-26-2014.png?w=1400&h=

    there are pop songs as I recall the one my guess with Casey Basey off the top of my head for one and he wrote with the guy who wrote Girls Like Boys I think too
    that Spanish song we heard a clip of sounds pop to me no?
    another thing was wondering if the folks giving the COC concert has anything to do with David going to France and Italy I think they are from there no?
    hope he goes and hope we get vids!

  81. kimk says:

    watched the AMA’s last night Imagine Dragons were good, liked Lorde’s performance it was weird, different and well JLo.. lol so glad David was NOT there!
