Director’s Upload of Forevermore
Wow. Wow. Wow. What did we do to deserve all the richness in video productions over the last few days?
From Director Paolo Bernaldo. It’s his High Definition version of the Forevermore Music Video, his own upload on his channel. Different camera angles, close ups. Intensely zen.

So much I’ll Never Go Buzz!
I almost can’t keep up! Thanks to @violet4ever and @mckenzieharr for being great sources of all these. And thanks to Martha @mlpb3 for sending many to us at our gmail account!
Take a look at each one…these links are from everywhere! Great job to David’s publicist!
Here’s a typical description of the music vid, this one is from Miss Exclusive. Click on each header below to read the articles for yourself!
No, he’s not back making music, but his team is releasing some new stuff for his fans! “I’ll Never Go” is the latest track from David, who’s currently on a mission for two years. The video was filmed in Manila and is from the album Forevermore that was released in the Philippines. Just another little something to hold you over while we all wait David’s return. Check it out !
You MUST read this one. It talks about David cutting his Bieber-eque locks. Huhh lol?
The 21-year-old soul singer (and “American Idol” season seven runner-up) has just released a new music video for his sensational new love song, “I’ll Never Go,” and this might be Archie’s best song yet!
The new ballad, which is sure to get tons of radio airplay this summer (it’s HOT!), is off David’s fourth studio album “Forevermore,” a collection of original Filipino love songs. (The video for “I’ll Never Go” was filmed in Manila, Philippines).
Archuleta has been out of the spotlight in recent months. In December, the half-Honduran singer surprised his fans with the announcement that he was putting his music career on hold to embark on a two-year Mormon mission. Then in March, David had another surprise for his fans: he announced he was cutting his Bieber-esque locks in favor of a more conservative look. “Just about to go get my haircut for my mission. You have to keep it short and clean, and nicely cut, so I’m going to go do that now,” the singer said at the time.
“Forevermore,” is already available at music stories in the Phillipines and available for digital download.
The buzz continues…..

The Sweet Smells of I’ll Never Go Cologne???
Kari tweeted about a possible marketing opportunity that was not to be. This time….
I just had to find some of my favourite recollections of David and aromas!
David with Guillermo from Jimmy Kimmel, fast forward to 4:20. ”I didn’t really smell her or sniff her or anything” ROFL!
…. and check out 3:05 +, David with Comedienne Eugene Domingo in the Philippines
And his hilarious tweet from June, 2010.
What would a David cologne smell like? I gotta think nothing heavy, shower fresh with a hint of mango lol. It would fly off the shelves!

2. Concert in Kansas City
From Kathy H
I was one whose first reaction to David’s mission announcement was probably shock. Soon, however, I settled into my belief that this decision fit my view of him as a person who lives his life both courageously and thoughtfully. Since I have no doubt that he intends to return to music, I found my peace and figured I’d use the time to catch up on the several things that my David devotion had derailed. Friends I spoke with online and in the real world spoke of their own reactions, and some of us who live near one another promised we’d see each other during the break. You know how it is? How those in our lives who aren’t fans often seem to visibly exercise patience when we forget and say that name one more time? But David fans get David fans. We need each other now as much as ever.On the weekend of his departure, a group of us met over lunch (to talk about David as much as we wanted, dangit) and soon were discussing “next time.”
We decided to do something in Kansas City in addition to lunch, and eventually settled on this concert, probably largely because both headliners, Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Callait, have a connection to David — I believe he’s spoken of both in blogs or vlogs.June 23 turned out to be very hot, but we met for lunch in an air conditioned restaurant and drove air conditioned cars to the Starlight, Kansas City’s outdoor venue, where we had tickets to the show starting at 4pm. We then spent four and a half hours seeking whatever shady spots we could find and refilling our cups and water bottles. (We were late getting the memo about the headliners coming on after five opening acts and tons of recorded music.) But we talked about our families, David, our jobs, and David, our vacation plans and also David.
The time passed.One opener who got our attention was Andy Grammer. He can sing, he writes his own stuff and he’s quite charismatic. We were impressed. We all also enjoyed Colbie, with her wonderful husky voice and positive pop hits. Gavin came across to me as someone who gets lost in the music like someone else we know, and his set was fun and energetic. We had a great time and we’re already talking about the next “next time.”
We’ll know one another better by the time David returns and we’ll be ready to see him in concert. For him, it could never really be too hot or cold or long to wait, right?
Thank so much Kathy for sending this to us! We appreciate hearing about the #DA2014 bonding which continues!

3. Western Road Trip, Part 2
Tomorrow, you get Part 3 by Nancy! I love this!
Sammie here! I just wanted to add what a wonderful time we had together! I would encourage all of David’s fans to keep planning these kind of events with each other. It’s amazing what being around a group of people who all share the same kind of heart. It’s very good for the soul! I am so thankful for the past four years to being able to meet these wonderful people, and be able to share a trip like this. It’s was also very refreshing for the “David Soul.” It was very nice to be able to look back on each of our amazing memories of David show’s and events with each other, also to be able to think about the future. I am very happy to say I was able to cross off “Go on an amazing road trip in the west” off my bucket list! I’m going to leave you guys with a quote I saw while on the road trip.
“There are people we meet in life that make everything seem magical. Cherish them.” I feel very blessed to be able to say that many of the friends I have made as being a David fan make me feel like this each and everytime we are all together. It’s a bond that is indescriable! It was very important for me to make sure we keep our strong connection as a fan base. So thanks for being amazing fans, people, and friends. <3
Here are some of my pictures from facebook. (note from Pastel…you MUST check them out!!!)
