Week of Updates
Hola. I’m updating on what’s been going on again haha. So last week was pretty crazy!
Monday was way fun with the Hard Rock Cafe performance! For those of you who went, I hope you had fun. I also accompanied myself on A Little Too Not Over You for the first time in New York for WPLJ.
After New York, I went to LA to do some stuff for Build-A-Bear, and there were 2 other talented girls. One of them was named Meaghan, who I believe was in Camp Rock. The other girl was named Jamia, and she was the little girl in August Rush! I remember watching Jamia actually on Showtime at the Apollo and Jay Leno when she was 7, so it was so cool! haha. I was blown away by her then, and I am blown away by her now. She was full of energy, and was hilarious too.
On Friday I did Radio Disney. I got to visit all the lovely cheerful staff at the Radio Disney station again, and I always love to go there. I performed there again, and got to talk to Ernie D and answer some phone calls on the air. Access Hollywood was there too, and they filmed me singing and doing my interviews there. I also had a little photo shoot for Radio Disney too, just for a few things.
Saturday, I performed at one of the events at Sundance, and that was really special because it was the first time I sang a song with my brother accompanying me on guitar. He accompanied me on You Can, and he did great haha. My friends and family got to come along, and we partied and just jammed out to music. We all had a really good time
I then flew out to DC to sing the National Anthem at a Latino Gala event on Sunday, one of the events going on for the week of the inauguration. Some of the performers were War, Paulina Rubio, Alejandro Sanz, and Marc Anthony, and I really enjoyed watching them. I got a chance to talk to Jennifer and Marc, and they were some of the coolest people I have ever met! It’s awesome because my mom is a huge fan of both of them, and they’re both incredibly talented. I love meeting people who are really well known and stuff, and you expect them to act all big and important, when they are some of the most down-to-earth cool people you’ve ever met haha. That’s how they were, and I really respected them for that. And I hope I can sing like Marc when I’m older. (*Jenny’s note: ummmm…not a chance, David: you are in a class of your own; Marc could only dream.)
So another thing I got to do was go the the Museum of Natural History in DC, which I LOVED! I’m such a fan of things like museums lol. And there was so much to look at there. They had a lot of prehistoric animal skeletons to look at, and I got some pictures so I’ll load those up. But seriously, if you live in that area you need to go that museum! It’s a lot of fun. Well, at least if you like museums it’s fun.
Lastly, this is a big week so make sure to keep up with the Inauguration today! I’ll write another blog soon.
Song for the day: Raise It Up – Jamia Simone Nash and Impact Repertory Theater (From August Rush) I This is a song Jamia sings on August Rush. I think it’s such a cool movie. I first watched it during my trip to Lake Powell during my short break in between The show and tour (and everything else.) So good memories lol.

I’m moving my screencaps up because…well, because I can.
David at Ibiza
The Recording Industry of America will be at the 30,000-foot D.C. club Ibiza for their party, which is set to include guests like Courteney Cox and David Arquette, Jennifer Aniston, John Mayer, Lance Bass, Mariah Carey, Matthew Perry and American Idol star David Archuleta.

Is it too much to hope that John Mayer will ask David Archuleta to open a few shows for him this summer?
