Happy World Humanitarian Day~

Source :WIKI~

World Humanitarian Day is a day dedicated to recognize humanitarian personnel and those who have lost their lives working for humanitarian causes. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly as part of a Swedish-sponsored GA Resolution A/63/L.49 on the Strengthening of the Coordination of Emergency Assistance of the United Nations,[1] and set as 19 August. It marks the day on which the then Special Representative of the Secretary-General to Iraq, Sérgio Vieira de Mello and 21 of his colleagues were killed in the bombing of the UN Headquarters in Baghdad.

Thank you, David Archuleta, for your many examples of how to “give back.”

Be Still My Soul~

MKOC~ The Light~ credit Tina (@rhiminee)

Last week, one of the first BEGIN. cds I received was gifted to a friend of my son’s. She’s a girl with a beautiful heart who delayed her entrance into Boston College by a year so she could serve at the South American Mission (in Peru) for a year. Now ready to begin her second year at BC, I wanted to make sure she received a “little green gem” from me before returning to school. She loves David’s music and has shared that while in Peru, Christmas From The Heart was the staple on her iPod no matter what month it was. :) I sent “BEGIN.” home with a sibling who was spending some time with another son of mine that day.

A few days later, there was a phone call ..from her mom. She  shared with me that her daughter had not yet been able to play the cd  because she herself had been listening to it.

“I’d recognized all of the songs and was interested in listening to them, but when I saw  David sang ‘ Be Still My Soul’ I knew I wanted to hear it before giving the cd to my daughter.” 

[She'd lost her mother one month earlier and was now struggling with the decision to place her father in Hospice care... she continued]

“I’ve been under so much stress, sadness, changes, demands, and it’s been so hard for me to find ‘my peace’ and to feel God’s peace recently.  I began to listen to David sing ‘ Be Still My Soul,’ one of my favorite hymns, she continued, and I felt something come over me. I was in my car and when the song finished, I hit the replay button. I soon found myself pulling over into a parking lot and played it over and over…12 times..and I wept….and after awhile I finally felt as though all of the anxiety and pain of recent months was being lifted from me…washed away.”

            “In every change He faithful will remain.”

             “To guide the future as He has the past.”  

              “Be still my soul when change and tears are past…

                 all safe and blessed ~we shall meet again”

I think we were both in tears at the end of the conversation. *note*There will be another green cd going to their home. :) So sorry for “stumbling” through sharing this story, but somehow on this serene Sunday morning, it felt “right” to include it.

I don’t want to risk a music bar etc. that might lead to any illegal downloading of David’s BEGIN. music, so I’ll post one of the YT versions I listen to every Sunday night. ~Still so incredibly beautiful 4 yrs later.

* * * * *

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone! Mary Lou will be back tomorrow with a great Monday post. I’ve heard there was a pretty fun Archupartayyy in Colorado with a number of pics taken! ;)

  4. nora says:

    good morning-I just returned home from church, our Minister is on vacation and we had a guest preacher this morning and her sermon this morning was on music and how it relates to her every day life. This reminded me of David and BEGIN, so after the service, I asked her if she had ever heard of David and she said yes, but wondered what ever happened to him, so I told her where David was, and why, and what a great person he was. I told her about his cd BEGIN, and how wonderful it was, and how he had chosen all the songs, and co-wrote Broken. Told her where to find it, she said she was sure she could find it on line. I’m sure she will love it as much as we all do.!!!

  5. sarahhazel says:

    nora–nice story and thank you for mentioning David!….lots of people loved him on AI but haven’t kept track of his career after that.

  16. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Joanie great post as usual . Glad to see we were able to get David WWT for a little bit. sarahhazel thanks for all the great links. I met Syesha at the AI tour at the Pru Center. I told her how beautiful she asand what a great singer she is. Her boyfriend was with her and agreed. She was very nice and a friend of David’s. He was like their little brother yet his voice was bigger than life.

  17. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–she is beautiful and a terrific singer/performer.

    Martha Those were great pictures. Thanks a lot for sharing. You’re awesome.

  36. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Just came from twitter. Does anyone know what the trend RIP Quentin means. Some of the tweeters were talking about an automobile accident. Some iD tweeters named two people and rip Quentin. Just curious, if anyone knows what that is about.

  37. Martha says:

    sgj – Found this tweet, apparently Quentin is a friend of Niall, one of the members of One Direction

    julia ∞‏@purfectniall
    RIP Quentin! 3 of Niall’s friends got in a car accident, 1 died and the other 2 are fighting for their lives :( #PrayForMullingarBoys!!!

  38. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–don’t know what that is….just saw a the @RIP Quentin twitter profile page & there’s nothing but 2 tweets saying same thing. :?:

  39. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–oh, so that’s what it’s all about.

  40. Gwen says:

    Thank you Joanie, for this beautiful post today.Love the story about Be
    Still My Soul, brought me to tears. David and his music have helped so many many people. What a gift to this world.
    Thanks too, for all those beautiful pictures, especially that first one. WOW!!

  41. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha ans sarahhazel. Thank you both for your responses. Such a shame.

  42. nora says:

    Hi everybody-if anybody has a few minutes they might like to vote on Wise challenge David is just a few votes the next artist, was a few hundred a couple hours ago, you don’t have to be on facebook to vote. Thanks

  43. nora says:

    I meant a few votes ahead.

  44. sarahhazel says:

    nora–thanks for the reminder!

  45. Ali says:

    OoO – official sales numbers come out from Billboard every Wednesday. Not trying to be a downer for you but I do not anticipate BEGIN selling enough reach gold certification. That would be sales of 500,000 albums. Given that first week sales were 11,000 and generally first week sales are the highest, that tells you where it stands. David only has one album that’s been certified gold in the US and that’s the first one. You should expect a 60-75% drop off in second week sales for the numbers coming up this week. That’s about average. His might be even steeper because of the lack of any promotion.
    Occasionally there are albums that see large sales later because of a unanticipated factor — like maybe a song is used in a movie and it catches on or something like that but the vast majority of albums see their highest sales by far in the first week of release.

    Of course we all know that this album was make for a much different reason than most you see today. Yes, I know all albums need to make money but it really was made to leave something for the fans during this 2 years. So as long as it broke even and as long as the fans were able to get the music, it is serving its purpose. imo, of course. :)

  46. Ali says:

    Love the post today, Joanie!! Especially love the story about BSMS. Music is such a powerful thing in so many ways <3

  47. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–thanks…I expect that too….but it’s OK….the album fared well than expected…..but maybe when he gets back things will get really rolling.

  48. collegemom says:

    If only more people out of the twitter loop knew about his cd – wish there were a billboard in every major city so people would look up and go “oh!” (maybe we could have a billboard fund! (just kidding – that’s for mgmt not us but I would love it in San Francisco – people loved him and I really think people would buy it given the chance)

    collegemom–LOL…I would do it if I am filthy rich! That face should be seen all over!
    Here’s some facts about putting billboards:
    http://guides.wkbw.com/Billboard_Advertising-a854312.html#8063693
    The cost of putting up a billboard can vary greatly. But the average figure can run anywhere from $600 to $2,500 a month. (Read more)…..

  51. Hi! everyone, I’m back from church refreshed in body and soul. Was a nice mass. I love libbies interview even if it was short. love Davids pictures in the front post, gorgeous as usual, but my favorite is where is laughing so hard. I just love that. I think we all know that Begin will eventually drop some, but it was to be expected. Anyway we didn’t expect it to do as good as it did. We have enough to keep us happy for the first year. pic, vids, MV, hopefully 2 more soon. And just Archies all over the world keep trending every so often to keep his name out there for the next year and a half. Don’t know what is in store for us for 2013, But i truly feel that there is more to come, GOD willing. So we wait for Elder Archuleta until he returns to us.

  52. Ali says:

    sarahhazel – yes, for sure! first week sales really exceeded my expectations in such a good way. i mean, you have to consider that this is an independent release so there is no big label to push promo. there is no radio play to push sales. its not widely available in stores. its a cover album, which generally means less sales. and the dude who recorded it is not even around lol. so given all that, i’m extremely impressed with the numbers. just seeing it an #5 of all independent albums in the country was such a proud moment for me. i mean, it had challenges even for an independent release and still showed that well.

  53. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–Let’s see…about 585 days more?….long way to go!…..hope his team has enough to keep the fandom excited and to keep his name out there!

  54. sarahhazel says:

  55. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–I was really proud too….I honestly couldn’t believe it. All I know is…David and this album have been Blessed. This young man gives and he received.

  56. Sarahhazel, i know your right! We have a long time to wait yet, but i guess i always count months instead of days because it seems like less time. So we have 19 more mos before Elder Archuleta comes back. LoL!. I know! Who am i kidding, its still a long time. HA! HA!

  57. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–I just psych myself from time to time…that the last 6 months will fly by so fast that before you know it….he’s at the airport arrival area getting big hugs from his mom & the whole family! (while we squeeeee & spazzzz & party like there’s no tomorrow….haha!…)

  58. sarahhazel says:

    Masterclass Lady must be really busy, she hasn’t reviewed BEGIN. I’m excited to read what she’ll say.

  59. Sarahhazel, I will be there along side of you spazzing with all the other Archies. It will be christmas in April 2014

  60. Happy Sunday Afternoon Everyone,
    Love coming here to get reenergized by FOD and all you wonderful peeps!!!

    There are no words for that pic up top!!!!! David’s expressions are as abundant as the grains of sand on the chilean beaches :)

    It’s amazing that Libby Linton “gets” David’s deep involvment with his music, even if they weren’t together to record DGU. What an experience it would have been had they been together recording it…YIKES!!!!!!!

    Last night I had dinner with my hubby at Macaroni Grill, my fav restaurant, cuz they know how to super excite my ODD. Each table has THICK WHITE PAPER covering the table cloth and a SET OF CRAYONS!!! The last time we were there I had doodled David’s name all over the paper to my hubby’s displeasure. When he saw the look on my face all he could say was, “OH, NO!!!” hahahahaha I had a brilliant idea…I LEFT A DAVID PROMO…
    DAVID ARCHULETA’S NEW CD, BEGIN., #28 ON BILLBOARD…CHECK IT OUT!!!
    YEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!! Wish all restaurants had paper table clothes :)

  61. sarahhazel says:

    Just e-mailed 2 radio stations and tweeted 2 more about BEGIN. Doesn’t hurt to try…haha…

  62. sarahhazel says:

    idamae–you go, girl!!! :)

  63. Sarahhazel, go for it…you never know :)

  64. sarahhazel says:

    Oh, BTW, those were A/C format radio stations. Don’t really wanna bother with the Top 40 ones.

  65. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–yup….at least I can add the album’s recent rankings on BB to my request….maybe it will spark their curiosity somehow….if not, well…at least I tried!

  66. sarahhazel, hahaha…it was so much fun!!! Of course, You Know Who wanted to hide under the table. He kept saying that they’re only going to crumple it up and throw it in the trash…yeah, but before that happens the clean up crew will see my MESSAGE as they remove glasses, silverware, dishes, napkins and not to mention the patrons as they pass by.

  67. sarahhazel says:

    idamae–LOL I could almost see your hubby’s expression…haha….but what can he do, right?….when ODD strikes, it’s unstoppable!

  68. Sarahhazel, i did the same thing. I e-mail my DJ and thanked him for playing Davids music. I also gave him the Billboard debut #s on BEGIN. I asked him if he could possibly, promote the album BEGIN to his fellow DJs. I will let him be now for a while, don’t want to overwhelm him.
    Idamae, you go girl. I love Macaroni Grill but they closed the one closes to us in Palm Desert. I would have done the same thing, and would have gotten the same reaction from my family. I don’t rain on thier parade, they don’t rain on mine.

  69. breanne says:

    Here is my Walmart story. I have been watching my granddaughter for a month in Minnesota while my son (a single father) works. I just got back to Utah yesterday. Today I went to the Walmart store in Brigham City, Utah and bought 2 BEGIN. cds.. I have already bought 4 from Deseret Book but was excited to see they were only $10′s at Walmart. The check out clerk was a very attractive woman in her 40′s & today was her lst day of working there. She commented on the great price of the cds & said she had purchased a couple from Deseret Book by mail. She said she was going to buy a few more from Walmart today after her shift was over because the price was so good ($10′s). She said she had a young girl (about 16 years old) who worked with her at her other job that “just loves David” & she had a couple other people she wanted to gift the cd to. We both commented about how wonderful and selfless he is. It was fun talking to someone else who adores David as much as I do. We did get a few stares because we were holding up the line with our conversation. There were 7 cds when I got there & they were in the “hot music” area.

  70. Breanna, what a wonderful story. Glad to hear that there are 16 yr old girls that love to hear David Sing. I love hearing all these stories that fans come across.

  71. sarahhazel, I get so upset when David’s ignored by those DJs…they’re more like “BOTTOM 40″ stations to me :)

    Linda, my hubby is like the weather when it comes to David. We can talk about him non stop but its my spazzing that turns him off so I need to watch my Ps AND Qs and my ODDs :( He actually bought 2 copies of Begin. from Deseret cuz they were on sale haha even after he knew I bought 1 from Deseret, another from itunes and one more from B&N !!! He even told me that he “rearranged “the CDs at the front of Walmart hahaha He’s a closet fan for sure!!

  72. Idamae, you have a winner there. Be good to him,

  73. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–I enjoyed your Walmart story!…..haven’t had an experience like that yet….meeting a fan unexpectedly & conversing about David…..maybe one day…..and I also love that there are still teenagers out there who appreciated him & his music.

  74. sarahhazel says:

    idamae–he bought you CDs and rearranged the ones in the store?!…..well, I agree with Linda…..be really good to him….haha!

  75. sarahhazel says:

    LOl…”bottom 40″ is right!

  76. breanne, I love stories like yours cuz we each have 1 or 2 similar stories and realize that we’re not alone when it comes to David Experiences

  77. tami lyn says:

    great story breanne! :)

  78. tami lyn says:

    the 3 B songs~ Broken, Beautiful, Be Still My Soul are the ones that make me cry. oops guess there are 4 B songs-Bridge Over Troubled Water. love it, but doesn’t make me cry :) which is good cuz i don’t wanna be crying thru the whole thing lol

  79. tami lyn says:

    what if david has nothing for us in 2013? i mean how could he possibly? unless they are gonna let him record something while he’s in chile. i would actually prefer for him to be allowed to do some vlogs for us so we can actually see him and hear how he is doing. that’s what i want.

  80. sarahhazel, actually, I’ve never been too over the top but with David I find myself initiating the conversation with anybody that fits the circumstances. When I went to my 1st M&G/ hubby we were waiting for the pics w/David. I was determined to find the fans that I was following in the FOD comments soooo I introduced myself to the woman who was sitting in front of me who I thought was a blogger cuz she was writing in a lil note pad. She turned out to be Marge who together with Pastel appeared with David, Seacrest on S^2C Broadcast. Marge was sweet enough to stear me in the right direction and found the nicest group of people in any fandom and the rest is history!!!

  81. Tami-lyn, a vlog would work for me too. But I don’t see that happening. But you know, David and his team plus Kari, have been full of surprises. maybe not as many as we have now but i just have a feeling that we won’t be disappointed. David and the team can only do so much. There will come a time when we will just have to sit and wait. But thats when FOD and our family here comes in.

  82. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–there must be something in store for us next year or we’re all gonna die from thirst…LOL….maybe not another album but I can’t think of anything right now that’s possible…..though I’ve wished for a live performance DVD of the Asian tour, Nandito Ako DVD (yes, I’m still waiting!)….and….a Spanish single release….OK, maybe that last one is a long shot….haha…..

  83. sarahhazel says:

    idamae–I know what u mean….ODD is like a second personality that takes over from time to time….LOL

  84. Sarahhaze, a spanish single is not too far fecthed. He does know how to sing in spanish.

  85. sarahhazel says:

    “David and the team can only do so much. There will come a time when we will just have to sit and wait. But thats when FOD and our family here comes in.”—Linda

    I agree….Waiting is hard but David is always worth the wait.

  86. tami lyn, no need to fret, looking forward to NA, mvs, somethin’ somethin’ in espanol, etc and if that falls through I’d leave it up to the creative crew with ODD to take us through to 2014!!!!! Positivity For The Win!!!!

  87. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–crossing my fingers….hope he actually recorded one for us!

  88. tami lyn says:

    ok not sure if i’m remembering this correctly but i thought someone said on twitter something about david recording a single while he’s in chile. don’t know if it was rumor, wild speculation, or actual info and i didn’t check into further cuz my phone was ringing or i had company or something but now i’m wishing i would have RTed it and then ask the person. like an idiot i was distracted and thought i could look again later but then i couldn’t remember who had tweeted that!

    idamae~ did u hear something about a spanish single?! that he did already or is gonna do?? :)

  90. Idame YEAH!!!! Possitively for the win! I was just thinking, that if all of Davids FanSites are still running when he comes back and almost all his fans are still holding on. What a great return gift for David, instead of #DA2014 We will be here. It will be #DA2014 Here I am.

  91. tami lyn says:

    but like i said, i would prefer a vlog definitely over new music. we have tons of david videos/songs to look at/listen to. i wanna see how is doing right now today.

  92. tami lyn says:

    oops~ how david is doing

  93. tami lyn says:

    he could be fat by now, we don’t know :(

    just kidding of course LOL!! :)

  94. Tami-Lyn, That would make all of us happy. But i feel like David is still in the beginnings of his mission. He really wants this to be first in his life right now at this time of his life. Maybe after he’s been there over a year, who knows. I could also be wrong. JMO.

  95. Ali says:

    tami-lyn – i’ve not heard anything about a single being recorded while he’s in chile. i would be very surprised if that’s true lol. VERY. i wouldn’t be as surprised if there was something more released next year, maybe a song or two or something like that but i’d say everything that will come out was recorded before he left.

  96. Tami-Lyn, i can’t really picture David fat. Maybe a little fuller, but not fat. David loves to eat, but i don’t think he eats a lot one time, like me. Look how thin he always is and he’s always eating.

  97. Ali- I agree with you. I think there is more, but done before he left.

  98. jana ‏@Jana_OR_DA2014

    I’m listening to David Archuleta Radio on Pandora http://bit.ly/NQJeg7 #pandora
    This is a new Internet radio station. They are playing Davids music right now.

  99. My comment is waiting moderation. But there is a Internet radio station, playing Davids music right now. ” Pandora ” New Internet radio station.

  100. tami lyn…wild speculation but anything is possible :)

    Linda aka… #DA2014 Nandito Ako!!!

  101. J ‏@minstrelj

    yesterday at WholeFoods heard @thedavidcook and @davidarchie back to back. it was like an AI season7flashback in the temple of

  102. tami lyn says:

    linda- lol! i know, i agree plus i don’t care about that. he’d still be adorable david :)

  103. ksf says:

    Some people just have a very high metabolism, no matter what or how much they eat. Used to be the case for me, but not anymore, lol. He probably eats as much as most 21 year old guys eat but fortunately for him it doesn’t show…yet…if ever. Plus, he’s always been pretty active it seems.

  104. tami lyn says:

    hi ksf! is this working?

  105. ksf says:

    Hi tami lyn! :)

  106. tami lyn says:

    ok it is :) a moment ago a weird screen came up that said- data base error or something like that. it just flashed and then disappeared.

  107. kimk says:

    liked the Libbie Linton interview.. hope we get to see them sing DGU live one day two.
    also wondering if no biggie they show the mission pics why there not here?
    they were cute.

  108. kimk says:

    tamilyn tried to post too same thing and before that waiting for moderation.

  109. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello Everyone!

    I’ve been lurking for a little bit, hit the refresh button, then it said couldnt pull up FOD. Got out of the site totally, then got back in. Seems ok now.

  110. sarahhazel says:

    My fave song to play today is DGU….love the lower registers & the wails, of course….he sounds more mature and manly……plus I really love the unique rhythm.
    Can’t believe I haven’t heard the original from PG in 1986.

  111. sarahhazel says:

    FOD did go down for a bit. Made me a little worried.

  112. Ali says:

    kimk – lol because “we the fans” are held to a different standard? ;) if i recall, the first to publicly state he would be serving his mission in chile was the local utah news as well. hahaha. and all the worry about fans putting info out there.

  113. They are playing parachutes and Airlpanes on Panora right now.

  114. sarahhazel says:

    I think his version of DGU is closer to that of John Legend’s but Libbie’s part is closer to Kate Bush and maybe a little bit to Paula Cole….than with Pink.

  115. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – I like DGU for the same reasons. In fact I wish he’d sing more songs in his lower register, which he did more with his earlier music. I’ve always wondered why, starting with TOSOD, he sings much higher most of the time.

  116. I hope Fod doesn’t go out again. Wonder what the problem is. Never had it before? or did they?

  117. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey ksf! I think he was just trying to push his limits, singing the higher notes sure has paid off on the Begin album, there are some beauties throughout all of the songs :grin:

  118. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–I like his lower registers now than before because his speaking voice got lower….but I still love a combo of lower and high notes in his songs….he still has that soft tenor going very well after all.

  119. tami lyn says:

    i don’t like DGU because the lyrics are depressing. wonder why he chose that? did he feel like giving up? sorry just makes me wonder because it’s such an unknown obscure song. i like peter gabriel’s other songs tho.

  120. Beth Hi! I love how Christina Aguileras fans have praised David on his cover of Beautiful They say that they don’t like anyone singing it because they mess it up. But that David did them proud and did a beautiful cover of it. I love that tweet.

  121. ksf says:

    Hi Beth! There are but I still miss the lower register. Can’t wait to see what he does vocally with future music.

  122. Tami-Lyn, it doesn’t necesserily have to be David that is giving up, i think its for anyone who feels lost and alone and confused.

  123. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – and I guess to me there hasn’t been as much of a balance as with his first album. I hope that he returns to that, although his upper register is great…sometimes it’s a little high for me.

  124. tami lyn says:

    linda- you’re probably right

  125. tami lyn says:

    but if i did feel like giving up that song wouldn’t help me.

  126. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–I love those tweets too.

  127. ksf says:

    tami lyn – DGU is my favorite on the album, but all of us have different preferences. For instance, I’ve really tried to like Beautiful but there’s something about it that doesn’t appeal to me. The original is still the best for me and that’s fine. I’m glad that you and so many people DO enjoy it. Something for everyone! :)

  128. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey tami_lyn! I feel the opposite about Dont Give Up. I find hit helpful, that people do have others to count on, family, friends or even people they dont know yet, that can help when you’re down & out, at your lowest point. Not to speak for David, but I think that may be what he intended with that song.

    ksf, LOVE Begin. but, I also cant wait, for whats coming when he gets back :grin:

    Hey Linda! Isnt that great. I appreciate how fans of other singers can give credit to other singers, especially when they sing their fav’s songs. Some fans cant do that, ever :roll: :grin:

  129. tami lyn says:

    the message intended in DGU i feel that more in beautiful. pretty much same message i think. beautiful makes me cry. DGU makes me feel nothing. funny how we can feel so different listening to the same song. that’s good tho :)

  130. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    tami_lyn, Dont understand the not feel anything with DGU, I think its quite moving & says alot. I LOVE Beautiful too, but I know not everyone will feel the same about each song, which is normal :grin: My fav’s are Broken, Pride, Everybody Hurts, Beautiful & Dont Give Up, closely followed by the rest of them :grin:

  131. tami lyn says:

    i keep trying to imagine how beautiful would sound with christina and david singing it together. hope it happens someday. she’s one of the few female singers who i feel is at his level.

  132. sarahhazel says:

    OK, I play all the BEGIN. songs each day but these are what I tend to have on repeat: …EH, DGU, TC, SOWK, Broken….hmmm, I guess that tells me something…haha…. ;)

  133. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–that would be an EPIC duet!

  134. tami lyn says:

    i think maybe i get annoyed with DGU cuz of libbie’s voice constantly interrupting david’s. her voice is lovely but i didn’t buy the CD to hear her.

  135. tami lyn says:

    sarahhazel- u got that right! :)

  136. ksf says:

    tami lyn – love the message of Beautiful bit just don’t care for this version so much. But yeah, the message and lyrics have always been wonderful imo.

  137. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    I would love to have David sing a duet with Adele. What if he did that soon after he got back, that would get some attention :grin: I think it would be Epic!!!!!!!!!!

  138. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–huh? that’s why it’s called a DUET…..LOL

  139. ksf says:

    tami lyn – wow…severe ODD! So, you wouldn’t get annoyed with Christina constantly “interrupting” David? LOL

  140. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–that last one was referring to your comment @7:15

  141. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Have to say I LOVE Beautiful & love that CA fans love it too :grin: Thats the great thing about music though, such variety out there, so much to choose from. I’m just thrilled to be a fan of Davids, so lucky, so Blessed :grin:

  142. tami lyn says:

    if he was gonna do a duet it should have been with adele, katy perry, lady gaga, or christina.

  143. ksf says:

    Beth – yes!! Would LOVE that! :)

  144. tami lyn says:

    ksf- no i would not be annoyed by anything christina would do :)

  145. sarahhazel says:

    KP & LG???…..tami lyn, you crack me up each time!

  146. tami lyn says:

    david is amazing and big name female singers should be lining up for the chance to sing with him :)

  147. ksf says:

    I’d like to see a duet with Jordin. But, I have to say that everyone does not have to have the same voice or singing style to make a great duet partner. Not everyone belts and that’s AWESOME!

  148. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–maybe someday…..so dream on for now…..

  149. I have my favorite songs on BEGIN also, but i still listen to all of them everyday. I can’t find a favorite yet. I’m just grateful for all these songs that David has left for us, to enjoy while he is away, along with his Forevermore album with beautiful love songs.

  150. Do you think that when David gets back, maybe he will sign with a label, now that Mission will be behind him. I know it’s far away to think about, but just wondering what everybody thinks.

  151. ksf says:

    I like a variety of music and voices. Otherwise you’re just listening to the same thing over and over. Boring. I like that David likes and appreciates all types and styles and that he chose Libbie to duet with…”interruptions” and all. Guess he felt she was “worthy.” Lol!

  152. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Dont want David to duet with katy perry or The Ga, they’re not on the same planet vocally with David, katy has to be autotuned to the max & Ga, well, hard to tell if she can sing or not :roll: Not to slam either one of them, just not impressed with either one, really.

  153. tami lyn says:

    sarahhazel- yes i guess sadly it is a dream for now but i don’t understand why it should be. david is one of the best singers in the world and he should be treated as such :)

  154. kimk says:

    if David was to duet with any of Tamilyn’s desired artists.. it would get buzz, sell a gazillion and be played on the radio.

  155. sarahhazel says:

    Random:
    Felt like weaning myself for a bit from BEGIN….so I went to YT & saw this comment on Tell Me (one of my faves in Forevermore)….

    “It’s the first time for me to hear David Archuleta. I was listening on the taxi radio. Wow. A foreign artist singing Filipino Music… now I’m a fan”
    zyxela 2 days ago

    New fan, woot! Hope she buys Forevermore and BEGIN.
    David’s music is played all over there…..but here…….. :mad:

  156. tami lyn says:

    if david comes back and does not get signed to a major label then something is extremely wrong with the music industry. they should be fighting over him!

  157. tami lyn says:

    hi kim! yes exactly! than maybe all these other people out there would know what we already know :)

  158. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–not sure….he might stay indie to have more control….creatively and business- wise?

  159. ksf says:

    Beth – Gaga is actually an amazing singer, believe it or not. If you ever see her sing live you’ll understand. One of the few that does not need auto tune. But, whoever he diets with I’m sure he’d be grateful and learn a ton…and vice versa.

  160. tami lyn says:

    sarahhazel~ true, maybe it is a control issue for david and i guess that is understandable. just have to face the fact we may never hear him on the radio again :(

  161. ksf says:

    duets with, that is! Haha!

  162. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Linda, Yeah, didnt he have offers from not only Jive, but from about 5 or 6 other labels, but I think he was trying to decide whether to go on a mission or not & didnt want to sign with a label, until he decided. Part of me had hoped he would’ve signed with another label, but I realize he needed to do what he thought was right for him, to trust that gut feeling of his, to not have any regrets. I have some regrets & they can be tough to live with sometimes. Would we have NA, Forevermore, Begin., etc….. if he didnt go on the Mission, hmmm, dont know, but I’m so grateful for all of it & his generousity & dedication to his fans :grin:

  163. tami lyn says:

    ksf- so true! if anyone doesn’t think she is a great singer they need to go to youtube and watch/listen to her performance of the lady is a tramp with tony bennett!!!

  164. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–LG is a fantastic live singer….but I liked more when she was just Stephanie Germanotta.

  165. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    ksf, lol, diets with. I guess its just hard for me to hear Gaga sing through all of the outfits & crazy behavior & all. Dont care for how far she goes in a video. I’m hardly a prude, but, there’s a limit for me. I guess thats why I’m such a big fan of Davids, he just goes out there & sings & its incredible :grin:

    kimk, Thats true, would be tons of press, singing a duet with any of those choices. Hope you are having a great trip :grin:

    Linda, I also meant to say in my comment to you that I wouldnt be surprised if David has a deal lined up with someone for when he gets back & if not, I’m sure many labels will be here waiting for him. His talent cant be denied, cant be hidden, cant be ignored. He has fans all over the world & it will continue, especially when he comes back :grin:

  166. ksf says:

    tami lyn – yep! Although I’ve got to see that performance!

    sarahhazel – yeah it can be hard to see past all of the “stuff” but I guess we can’t always “judge a book by its cover?” but, she’s amazing.

  167. ksf says:

    There’s a time and place for all types, even the Gagas, lol. We need performers and entertainers to add some spice imo. For me, I listen to different artists depending on the vibe I want or the mood I’m in.

  168. tami lyn says:

    here’s just one of my dream scenarios~ david comes back, gets signed with interscope , david and lady gaga release a duet single and it’s a smash hit, on the radio constantly and then on award shows, they win and go up together to accept their awards to standing ovations!!! :)

  169. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–I really don’t mind LG’s OTT outfits and all….just the crazy stuff on stage like some obscenities, or sexually-themed choreography, or sometimes violent themes…..tried watching an encore show once on TV….but a even a bit was already too much for me.

  170. josie says:

    Hola. SBL was playing in Bath & Body Works today. lol. I haven’t heard that one for awhile!

  171. sarahhazel says:

    Kinda early still but gotta go….Monday tomorrow if ya know what I mean….
    Have a goodnight, folks and sweet BEGIN. dreams all!!! :) :) :)

  172. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    ksf, not judging a book by its cover(unless that cover is barely there & seen by young kids) Its one thing in concert when people of an appropriate age, purchase a ticket knowing what they’ll see, but its another thing when kids can see a video like Telephone. I’m all for people pushing the envelope a bit, but I prefer it be done in good taste. We need people to push the envelope, otherwise we all would still be in long dresses & bonnets 12 months out of the year,lol, but there’s gotta be a limit when young people are involved. What Adam L. did on the American Music awards, was beyond inappropriate during prime time with young kids watching.

  173. tami lyn says:

    goodnight sarahhazel :)

  174. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight sarahhazel, Take Care :grin:

  175. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – I know what you mean. I haven’t watched her videos or most of her shows, but I have seen her perform live on AI and other prime time shows where she’s forced to tone it down. So, thats the only way I’ve been able to see her sing live.

  176. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    tami lyn…I’ve been lurking a while….your comment at 7:22……a duet with anyone by LADY GAGA……My preference would be Adele…..BTW….My fav songs on BEGIN are: Broken, Beautiful (with that Archugrowl on the word GONE….), Don’t Give Up, True Colors and BOTW….Miss Vicki

  177. ksf says:

    Beth – I’m not talking about her theatrics just her voice. As I said, it’s hard to see past all the drama but as far as being on par vocally with David she’s actually a classically trained singer. That’s all I was trying to point out.

  178. ksf says:

    Goodnight sarahhazel :)

  179. tami lyn says:

    miss vicki- hi! beautiful is one of my favs too!

  180. tami lyn says:

    yeah i’m not talking about david and gaga performing live together. obviously their styles are drastically different lol! but from a pure singing standpoint, they could record a song together that would be amazing!

  181. tami lyn says:

    or like i said katy perry, she is pure pop and not as great a singer as gaga but she is an incredible songwriter and performer so i could imagine david doing something amazing with her too.

  182. cq#DA2014 says:

    Like your choices for a David duet, Tami.

  183. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    ksf, I understand what you’re saying about her singing. I just dont know if I want to be a fan or support someone who does some of the things she does, thats all. Seems to me, she cant get enough attention, its never enough. Now I realize thats part of self-promotion and all, but, I dont know. You know what part of it is, I saw, just the commercial mind you, of Toddlers & Tierras. Seeing how they get their eyebrows plucked, wearing hair pieces, facials, the heavy makeup, the outfits, making little girls look like their 35. Guess I’m tired of seeing people not letting kids being kids, whether its this kind of show, music(although thats where parents come in, hopefully) or music, thats all :grin:

  184. ksf says:

    tami lyn – and most likely if they did ever duet together it wouldn’t be a crazy, dance performance type song…it is David after all. So there’s nothing to fear… I’m sure she “cleans up” real good, lol.

  185. tami lyn says:

    cq~ thanks :)

  186. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ yeah lol, can u imagine?? would be awesome!

  187. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    ksf, Maybe David will be a dancing machine when he gets back :grin:

  188. ksf says:

    Beth – understand and agree about kids, etc…but you’re right, that’s the parents responsibility. And yet, I’m still just talking singing, lol. You don’t have to support her, even if David did ever decide to collaborate with her or anyone else that you don’t like really. Just don’t buy it.

  189. Goodnight sarahhazel. sweet dreams.

  190. ksf says:

    tami lyn – it would be! And he could learn a lot from her too. :)

    Beth – lol, maybe :)

  191. ksf says:

    I think it’s time for me to call it a night too. Goodnight everyone! :)

  192. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey Beth…What did Adam Lambert do on the American Music Awards?????? Curiosity killed the cat…..Didn’t watch the American Music Awards this year because the greatest singer I know is in Chile and I knew he wouldn’t be present this year….HA HA HA…..Miss Vicki

  193. Beth, i would love for David to come back a dancing machine. He can do it, he’s got it in him. A little Bachata, salsa, maybe even a little Dougie..

  194. Goodnight KSf its been nice,

  195. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Love reading all your comments about David And cough, cough Lady GaGa. I agree with Beth about LG’s videos are way over the top and nothing ladylike about them. What I find hypocritical is that performers who push the envelope do not care about our children or grandchildren. Madonna for instance wouldn’t even let her children watch T.V. Their children go to private schools not exposed to the likes of them. That is what get’s me the most. How could David perform with someone so immodest. I believe the magazine article in j-14 showed that David likes girls who dress modestly. Some of these people make grown men blush. JMO

  196. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Saw some of your comments earlier today…..I truly think David will sign with a major label when he returns as long as they give he artistic license and let him do what he wants….And I truly think David and his team have more in store for us in 2013 to tide us over….Miss Vicki

  197. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey supergrandjudie….Yeah….David is all about Modest is Hottest!!!!! Miss Vicki

  198. tami lyn says:

    goodnight ksf :)

  199. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki.. You don’t want to know what A.L. did on the AMA show. I couldn’t believe what I saw that night on prime time T.V. on a program that is mainly viewed by teens. A.L. had a lot of nerve to pull what he did considering he was new on the scene and can’t sing, scream yes, sing no. JMO Boy I get boiled up over these so called singers. Exhibitioners is my opinion.

    Goodnight ksf and sarahhazel

  200. Thank you Miss Vicki, i feel the same way about when david returns and that we will have more in 2013.

  201. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey Miss Vicki, Yeah, I dont know if I can say what he did here,lol, an obscene dance move or two, etc….. :roll: It was a year ago last October, not this past year.

    Goodnight ksf, take care. If David did a duet with The Ga, I would buy it to support David, dont see it happening, but ya never know.

    Linda, You can tell David is a great dancer, just by the dance moves we have seen and he may just be ready to let it all go, when he gets back :grin:

    Hey supergrand, I agree. There was a tv actor who wouldnt let his kids watch much tv, an hour a day, if that, but yet thats how he made his living, by families watching his shows. Highly hypocritical, I think. In regards to music performers, be it live or on video, there’s a difference between romantic & even a bit sexy, than obscene & derogatory lyrics about women or certain moves they do while dancing. Its the taste level & the hypocracy of some of these performers that get me.

  202. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth I think I might have sounded a little too much . To each his own, just would like someone like David with all his ducks in a row and amazing talent would be more on top than ones that only see society as bringing in the big dollars no matter what the cost. When David returns hoping people in the business will recognize him and his talent for what he is. He walks the talk. :grin:

  203. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Sarahhazel….headed your way to Northern VA tomorrow…..Taking a few days off to take my son to museums in DC and shopping at Tysons Corner tomorrow for back to school….Also going to the Atlanta Braves vs. Nationals game in DC tomorrow night…..GO ATLANTA BRAVES!!!! Chipper Jones is my son’s David Archuleta……HA HA HA……Spending quality time with my son before he heads back to VA Tech on Friday…..Nighty night all…..Miss Vicki

  204. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Linda By time we get together again, it’s almost time for me to call it a night. Afraid , I got a little windy today. I think anyone that did a duet with our Mr. David James Archuleta would be priviledged by his presence and vocal perfection. amen

  205. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    supergrand, I understand what you were
    saying though :grin: Tell MrSgj that the
    fine feathered friends say Hello & Goodnight :grin:

  206. Miss Vicki Goodnight and have a nice trip with your son.

  207. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki.. Goodnight. Have a great day tomorrow with your son. HaHa that’s what I tell people when they ask me about why I have ODD about David. They go crazy for ballplayers and all other kind of performers. Spend hundreds of dollars to see their favorite football teams and players. Why do they have a problem with my ODD for David? Jealous I guess because we have a special bond with him. JMO

  208. Goodnight Beth have a nice evening

  209. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth, I’m going to say goodnight too. See you all tomorrow. Linda I’m going to try again on Facebook. Goodnight

  210. tami lyn says:

    i would also love to see david do a duet with demi lovato :) they are beyond adorable together!

  211. tami lyn says:

    i would not be mad if david married demi :)

  212. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Evening all,
    Just had to share my experience at church today. The Priest that conducted mass today was from a visiting parish in Honduras. He spoke about how the violence there has changed his parish. He did have 9 volunteers working with him for the children there. Since the US government has pulled out down there, all the volunteers have been sent home. He talked how about not matter the problems, he knows in his heart that is where he needs to be and God will help him through this.

    Needless to say, my thoughts immediately went to Lupe and her family. I was wondering if she has anymore family there. Then my thoughts went to David, as he has visited there many times. I wonder if he knew where this church was and if he knew the Priest. Probably not, but still cried many a tear during the service praying for the people of Honduras.

    Don’t want to be downer, but just had to share that I pray now not only for David and his safety, but now also for his family’s country.

    Tami lyn-I agree, Demi is a great match for David. She has a great voice live, better then most that came from Disney. She doesn’t get enuff credit either. She has had a rough life and is trying hard to stay good and true to herself, without falling into the image the musical media wants to go. :)

  214. Lurkerala. I agree with you. I think Demi would be a good singer for Davids first duet. They look good together, they are friends, i think she is better then people give her credit for and David would be good for her as she tries to get herself back together again.

  215. Candy says:

    I personally hope David stays away from signing with a major label, a major label will be telling what to sing, when to tour, where to tour…I hope he has the freedom to sign what he wants.

  216. Candy says:

    *sing

  217. Hi! candy, but will he be able to promote himself like a label would. Just wondering, really don’t know how it works.

  218. Candy says:

    Linda- guess that would depend on whether he gets over his lack of self promo from before. A lot of artists are very successful BUT they also arent shy about self promoting.

  219. Candy says:

    Im hoping and praying that by the time David returns he will have outgrown his “Im a Dork, Im weird looking” stage and emerge with a new attitude!! He sang the cover songs with such maturity, if only he can apply that to how he views himself…which sometimes isn’t very positive.

  220. Candy, maybe your right. Bieng gone for 2 yrs without his family, he has to mature on his own. make his own decisions and meeting with so many different kind of people it might help him mature. Lets pray that that will happen for him.

  221. Candy, myself i can hardly wait to see the person that he will be when he comes back.

  222. Candy says:

    I hope so too Linda, by the time he can tour again which will probably be Christmas 2014, I wont care what he sings…just so he sings!

  223. Candy, Oh! i’m with you. I just want to hear him sing. Do you think when he comes back, he might record a song in spanish, since that is the language he has been around for a long time.

  224. Candy says:

    Well time to head to bed, have a long day tmw…its the one year anniversary of loosing my nephew, going to spend time with the family. Good Night All

  225. Goodnight Candy. Sorry about your nephew, Sleep well.

    atx – that’s very sad.

  227. cq#DA2014 says:

    Candy, I also hope he outgrows that “I’m a dork; I’m weird stage. I always cringed when he called himself a dork or weird. He is now as far from a dork or weird as anyone can get, lol.
    As far as David signing with a big label, I really would like him to sign to kick start his career when he returns. A major label that understands David would be great for his career, imo. Of course, when he returns, I know we fans will be so ready for anything as long as he sings. Personally, I would want a big singing career for David, now what David wants…………I have NO clue, but just hope he wants the same.

    Hi all…I would not want David to marry or even date Demi. She has serious mental health issues that will require more treatment in the future, potentially. She is a beautiful young lady; however, I do not think she can sing. Her voice, frankly, irritates me. Just had to say that. JMHO…so don’t throw tomatoes at me. Back to lurking.

  229. cq–I kinda agree with you, but who knows, he might already have things planned out when he comes back. Myself, i think he has more plans in the phillippines. Its just my opinion.

  230. Well goodnight everyone. Going to see whats on tweeter then listen to my favorite album BEGIN and if i don’t fall asleep, see some of Davids pass concert videos. Long night ahead of me. Good thing i don’t work tomorrow.
