#DA2014FitClub Progress Report

Pattie shared the 4th quarter status report on the progress to date of the I’d Walk A Thousand Miles for David Archuleta campaign.  Impressive stats!  If you’d like to join the club and get some healthy exercise while helping to meet our goal, simply follow @DA2014FitClub on Twitter and tweet your number of miles that you walk, jog, run etc… and it will be added to the grand total!  Less than 200 miles left to go!

I’d Walk a Thousand Miles for David ArchuletaWeek 4 Progress Report

The finish line is in sight!  Twenty-seven people walked 229.97 miles this week for a total of 824.55 miles.  Forty-five people have participated over the past 4 weeks.  This is so much faster than we thought possible because we’ve had such great participation.  We hope this has jump-started an exercise program that will continue for you.  We have had people walking amounts from a half mile to many miles.  There is still time to participate, so if you’d like to join in this week, please do so.  Let’s make this week our best yet with even more people participating.  Thanks so much for the great pictures that have been coming in.  We still would love to have more pictures of “people” i.e. “you” walking or running!

Cleveland, Ohio 2008

Four years ago the AI7 Idols were on tour in Cleveland!  Here’s a few vids that capture that fun time – I love when he’s talking to fans as he signs autographs by the buses!  I miss the days when David was so accessible and he’d hang out, sign autographs and chat -  with nothing more than a piece of yellow caution tape between him & the fans.

Gwen’s “Mr. D” Poem – Part 3

– credit Gwen P.

Mr. D

Mr. D is perched up in a tree,

Waiting and watching for the mailman you see

Wondering if “IT” will ever arrive,

That beautiful teal disk that will make us come alive.

BEGIN is here and we are in heaven,

have it on repeat twenty four seven.

Thank you David for this wonderful gift,

it means so very much to us, really gave us a lift.

Then Kari said ”What do you think, would today be a good day for a music video?”

We were all so excited but so worth the wait.

Everybody Hurts is such a touching story

And we get to see and hear David in all of his glory.

We are up to five months now, can you believe?

I know it’s something we didn’t think we’d achieve.

We have each other, what a great group of friends,

Give us a few words and just watch us trend.

In pictures that we’ve seen David looks so happy,

I am sure he wouldn’t want us to be sappy.

can hear those word in that beautiful song,

Telling us all to just HOLD ON.

Do You Miss Nandito Ako?

That would be a big Y to the ES – YES!!!  While we all wait patiently (maybe impatiently) for the Nandito Ako Dvd to be released for purchase, many fans get their daily “fix” by watching the vids with subtitles on DailyMotion – courtesy of our Pinoy fans!  Thanks to JR4DA and all the others who helped with adding subtitles!  When we finally do get the dvd, I can see Nandito Ako marathon parties all around the world!

Josh, Anya, Holly, Chit, Billy, Volta and the rest of the cast – WE MISS YOU!

And Then I Became A Fan

- Ronald B Ruiz

I am a music lover. In fact, for me, without music, life could be so boring. I believe music is one of the greatest creations of God. Why? I found the three aspects of life – faith, hope and love in music. Through music we could express our praise and our faith to Him. Through music, God uses the singers to bring hope to those who almost give up in their life. And through music, we can feel the love and comfort of God. Then I have to say music must be for God and it shouldn’t be distorted. That’s the reason I choose singers whom I admire carefully. Singers that have a great personality and never use music to do things that are not pleasing to God. And this is the root of why I became a fan of David.

At first
At first I didn’t know anything about David or his songs. Only I knew was he is a singer. I learned about him from my sister who is a fan of him since American idol. I just ignore it because I’m not a big fan of international singers. Most (not all) of the foreign singers today always connect lust in their music that’s why I just focus in patronizing Filipino singers although I have favorsite foreign songs. So back to David, even my sister is a fan; it didn’t catch my interest to know him more. I never get a chance to listen carefully to any of his songs. And the worst is I bullied my sister for being so fanatic to him. So that happened for four years since he became famous in AI.

That magical moment
I always believe for a turning point moment. Sometimes, things you always ignore before became your interest to be treasured of. Last May 2012, I got a chance to watch MYX daily top 10. Part of the top 10 is the “Forevermore” rendition of David Archuleta”. Forevermore is one of my favorite love songs so it got my attention. That was the first time I listen carefully to the whole song of David and to my surprise he nailed that song more than anyone else who sang it. I was amazed with his wonderful voice that really soothes your heart and soul. It’s the first time that I heard a singer connecting to the heart of the listener without watching him live! His powerful vocals are given but what I really admire to his singing is the life he gave in every songs. Many singers can sing, but I could count those singers who could give life to what they sing. And that’s the start of my interest to this wonderful singer. I said to myself, there is something good behind this person why he sings like that. I’m sure this person has amazing character. Because that’s what I believe in every singers that their personalities reflect on how they deliver the song to their listeners. In fact he had quoted this in COS- “The bottom line is that while you’re performing it’s hard to hide who you really are. It’s all about the interpretation of the song, not just the song itself.” Page 198

Hei! I’m now a huge fan!
It’s my tradition that before I admire a singer, I always check first his/her personality. Why? First, I don’t want to be influenced by a singer who will lead you to the dark path. I tell you, a lot of foreign singers are like that so be careful on choosing your idols. Second, I don’t want to waste my money for a singer who is not worth spending because of his/her personality. So after that magical moment of hearing Forevermore by David, I’ve done research about David’s life, career and personalities for me to prove my instinct on the character of this person. I read a lot of articles, interviews, biographies and even comments about him.  I watched some of his performances.  I was wowed because I never read or heard any negative things about his personalities. And then I learned the counting david’s character site. This site really overwhelmed me about his personality. I never knew an artist with this so genuine character. I am right to my instinct. That time, I said to myself that from now on I am a certified archie.  It’s funny that I am surprised that he is already in his mission when I became fan but I’m really proud to his decision. Choosing to serve God first is not that easy for being a successful singer like him. I really admire him on that decision. Another thing I admire on him is he rather sticks to his principle and purpose in doing music than compromising and following the flow of worldly music. He could be so famous if he follows the steps of those top rating singers but he always believe on his real purpose why he is doing this. And that’s what you called a great singer! Then I buy his book, Chords of Strength, to know him further. That book really changed my life. I can’t measure the impact of David’s life to mine. He’s so awesome. I had read someone’s’ life but only his turned me to cry.  I cried not just because of his inspiring life but most of all because his life convicted me. I couldn’t imagine this person is almost perfectly nice having that amazing character that mine is so far behind his. Being inspire with his life, I decided to go back to church again. For, me David’s life should be an inspiration to all so that this world could be a good place to live.
Currently and I believe it’ll be forever, David is my most favorite singer of all. He might not have those 20 millions of followers in twitter, multiplatinum awards on albums, no. 1 spot on billboards and most viewed in youtube but I know he has the most important thing that many artists miss nowadays. And that’s tha anointing of God! That’s a big reason to become a big fan to him! I might be too late for being a fan but I assure to all I’m the one of those last people who will stand for him.
I want to leave one of amazing quotes of David in COS that really made me cries.
“As I said, I strongly believe that fame brings with it the opportunity to help others people. You can use your name for the purpose of doing good, as opposed to just being tabloid material all the time. You can actually make difference. I feel that all celebrities should take this responsibility seriously and take advantage of their position to spread positive messages. I hold this as a top priority as I move further along in my career; whatever “status” I have will be as much for others as it is form myself, BECAUSE FAME IS NOTHING WITHOUT GENEROSITY AND KINDNESS” –David Archuleta ~ Chords of Strength page 236 (emphasis added)
To all his fans, I would like to encourage you not just to follow his music, but also to follow his character!  I would like to have some archu-friends! Please follow me on twitter @iamnadruiz, add me on fb facebook.com/ronald.b.ruiz
God bless ~ Nad

  4. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    “To all his fans, I would like to encourage you not just to follow his music, but also to follow his character!” <— enjoyed Ronald's "And Then I Became a Fan" summary. It's happened to each one of us somewhere at some moment ~& what a turning point it is for all David's lucky fans.

    Thanks Kalei for another FABS post. I really enjoy watching the old footage of David signing autographs in the early days. He was a GEM then & still is today :)

  5. bychance says:

    What a great way to start the day! Thank you, Kalei!
    I love the whole post, but especially want to say thank you, Ronald, for taking the time to write and share your experience with David’s music and who he is. It reminds me so much of my own experience becoming a fan. It is just sweet to relive it, and all I can say is AMEN!!

  6. sarahhazel says:

  9. Jhen says:

    Hello everyone!
    Ronald Ruiz story and message was awesome. Yes, I agree we should not follow only David music but follow his beautiful character. Wow, it’s never too late to become a fan of David, better be late than Never.
    Lyn quote is beautiful also.
    Can’t wait for NA DVD release for purchase, I missed some of the episode the last time it shown on TV 5 , because I was not at home yet, so I watched it on DailyMotion, but I really want something like DVD because of continuity of the episode and it’s more clear.

    David Archuleta’s 5th album is out!! I’m a fan of his musi and voice! #davidarchuleta #album #music #igersma

  11. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–@9:15–what a beautiful face…..really love his hair like that!

  12. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–How’s BEGIN. doing so far there? Any news?
    Would love the DVD for NA too….nothing’s better than David in HD!

  13. Jhen says:

    Forevermore is also my favorite OPM song, I’m move and shaken everytime I hear David version of Forevermore on Philippines radio. His voice have the power to affect the emotions.

  14. sarahhazel says:

    OneDavid ‏@onedavidnet
    @DavidArchie Malaysia releases BEGIN today and both you and your cd trended ! If only you knew David! :) @kariontour http://pic.twitter.com/BH4rfK3g

    Kari Sellards Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @onedavidnet @davidarchie I will make sure he hears about it. Thanks for the support.

  15. Jhen says:

    Begin is doing good in the Philippines, but I know some of the fans have not buy it yet, maybe because of financial problem, they are students. But Begin didn’t surpass the sell of Forevemore Album.

  16. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–thanks…hopefully it will continue to sell for a long time….and I’m not surprised at the success of Forevermore….being an OPM album and David was there (for NA & a short pre-release promotion) and fans were still reeling from excitement then.

  17. Jhen says:

    I know David want to have duet with Philippines Lea Salonga, but both of their schedule was hectic then, Lea was about to leave for US commitment and shows and David had a lot of schedule, maybe next time when David come back to the Philippines , who knows, he will have duet with Lea Salonga and Regine Velazquez Alcacid.

  18. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–a duet with either of the two would be fabulous!

  19. Jhen says:

    sarah- Yes, because even those who are not David fans, they bought Forevermore album, because it is OPM. And at that time David was in Manila for pre album signing, so the sales went up. Hopefully Begin follow soon.

  20. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–I hope so…even slowly but surely….I’m sure a lot of non-fans (or maybe even more of them), know many of the classic hits in BEGIN…..esp. the older ones.

  21. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–have they started playing BEGIN. songs on the radio there?

  22. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY TUESDAY guys!

    Kalei…THANKS for another AMAZING POST! Peacesignpam’s lead off pic is a STUNNER! THANKS

  23. sarahhazel says:

    I see Malaysian fans are requesting FlyFm958 to play Broken. Woot!

  24. Replying to BREANNE’s question from the previous thread:

    “Wonder why Everybody Hurts isn’t showing up in the Top 10 on MYX?”

    I don’t think EH has premiered on MYX, hence the non-appearance.
    Am sure there is a very good explanation why it has not premiered.

  25. Jhen says:

    sarah- not yet I think, I haven’t heard Everybody hurt and Broken yet, but soon I think they will play Everybody hurt.

  26. Lucy says:

    Good morning all! You know how some were talking about the “Archuhospital?” what about “Davidstock” as many fans as possible camping out in some field or wherever, blasting David music and videos and sharing David experiences if you had them. Sounds like fun huh, feel free to add something to this “festival” if any of you want. Just a random thought this morning……

  27. sarahhazel says:

    Lucy–As long as it’s the weather is nice….Davidstock would be a total blast!

  28. OoO says:

    Lucy. haha 10 days ago I mentioned here about when DA comes back he should first do a World Tour so all his fans can see him in person. And 2nd he should do something like David kind of Woodstock maybe fans can camping out at the cornfield in SLC.

  29. Good morning to all my Archiekins. Hope every one had a restful night, and if you are getting ready for bed. Have a Good night.
    Kalei, you always give us those great post
    Ronald, i loved your story. Yes! you are here in Archuland to stay.

    Jhen! JackRyan4DA! Hello,nice to see you on comments this morning, and thank you for the information on whats happening in the Phillippines.

    @DavidArchie I have many things to thank you for, sir, but mostly for never uttering the word “swag”. #merci

  35. Grace says:

    Morning everyone!!
    Thanks Kalei for your great mega post!!
    Ronald’s story is similar to mine. When I like songs, I tend to do research on artists and check out who they are. Most of singers always disappoint me in one way or another. Josh Groban was the last singer I liked as a singer and person, then I found David. Saw something different on TV from his demeanor and started to find info about him. The more I did research on him, the more I felt conviction about his pure and sincere soul. Normally I care less about entertainment business that is full of garbage, but David is an exception.

  36. breanne says:

    LOVE your post Kalei!! Ronald’s story about becoming a fan was wonderful!! Once you become a fan of David, you are in it for life!

    jackryanforDA: Thanks for responding to my question about why Everybody Hurts isn’t on MYX yet!!

    sarahhazel: Thanks for posting my tweet about Chart Central!!

    Broken is about 2,500 votes ahead on @WISE_RADIO’s Music Challenge. Poets of the Fall’s fans can be relentless, so even though it is ahead that much, they can go on a voting streak & pass us easily. Keep voting!!

    Idea of something to do this week while David is away. Week 21; Sept 3-9: David loves to go out and eat. We all know he loves Thai food and little Mom & Pop restaurants. Go try out a new restaurant or two this week.

  41. Martha says:

    http://www.fox5vegas.com/story/19449485/smash-mouths-new-album-magic-available-today

    “Krompass in fact, also helmed the producer’s mantle (having worked with Nelly Furtado and David Archuleta) capturing the quintessential Smash Mouth party sound as well as helping to take them to the next level.”

  42. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Good afternoon everyone. Kalei a very nice post as usual. Loved the videos and Ronalds comment on his wonderful discovery of our beloved David. Gwen is so creative. Loved her poem.
    Jhen love seeing your comments. You always enlighten us on what’s going on in your world. You keep us informed, thank you.
    Jackryan4DA love all you do for us. thanks again

  43. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Jane- Thanks for this weeks suggestion. Sounds wonderful to me. I’m all for going out to eat.

  44. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I didn’t know Mike worked with Nelly Furtado! I love her! I think sometimes, depending on what she sings, David’s cousin Vanessa sounds like her. Reminds me of her.

  45. VaBeachArchie says:

    What a day so far! Computer issues, termite inspection and first day of school for my daughter’s household! And it’s only after 12! lol Cleaning up after company had to take a back seat!

    Had typed a GREAt list of Thank yous and comments…but alas foiled AGAIN! My daughter’s computer is possessed! LOVED Ronald’s story of becoming a fan of David’s! Congrats to the Malaysian fans on trending and finally having BEGIN. available! Thanks jackryan4DA for all your info! Thanks to all for the links…really APPRECIATED! Well better end…or poof it will be gone!

  48. tami lyn says:

    janel- that reminds me of a convo i had with mike about nelly(love her too)! but then when i asked him about david he wouldn’t talk anymore :( still wondering why

  49. nora says:

    sarahhazel I have been wondering aboutMCL also, I think I mentioned it about a week ago, she always does a review of David’s music, I hope she is all right. Great post today Kalei. Loved Ronald’s story, another fan won over for David.

  50. sarahhazel says:

    nora–Her latest post is about the changing of AI judges (9/1/12). I know fans have requested her to review BEGIN. since it was released so I don’t know why she hasn’t.

  51. nora says:

    sarahhazel thanks for the info on MCL, it just seems strange, I always look forward to her review mor than anybody else, she is so knowledgeable in reviewing music, especially David.

  52. nora says:

    meant more

  53. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    I just had lunch and when I got on again I saw I typoed Jane instead of Janel. Sorry Janel. Meant to thank you for all the good David stuff you inform us about. You are one super fan.

  54. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel – Hi, I’ve been meaning to tell you how much I appreciate all the goodies you bring over here for us to see. Love all your enthusiam too. Thank you.

    nora- thanks for being my Wise Radio voter partner. I’m going there now.

  55. sarahhazel says:

    OK, call me crazy but….listened to DGU by Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush, PG/Paula Cole, PG/Tracy Chapman, John Legend/Pink, Bono/Alicia Keys, PG/German singer, PG/Sinead O’Connor & a few other unknown covers….and I still think DA/LL’s version is the best…..NO BIAS WHATSOEVER….SERIOUSLY.

  56. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–aw, thanks….. :)

  57. sarahhazel says:

    Mike ‏@blisskasden
    @LukeEdgemon I’m also a big @DavidArchie fan, and I tell everyone that I am. David needs more guys like us in the U.S. to get on board.

  58. sarahhazel says:

    meant *a few other covers by less-known artists*

  59. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel- I believe your rating of DGU and that DA does it good, better, best!!

  61. cq#DA2014 says:

    Fabulous Tuesday post Kalei.
    Hoping for something/anything from Archuleta team/Kari this month.

    Hi cq- I was thinking the same thing. Don’t Give Up!!

  63. nora says:

    sgj-just came back from there voting on Wise I think I need a break right now, maybe somebody else can throw a few votes there , just trying to keep ahead. BBL

  64. sarahhazel says:

    Random thought: I wonder why David skipped “and friend just can’t be found” in the second verse of BOTW and sang “and pain is all around” which is also from the fourth verse? :?:

  65. tami lyn says:

    at the end of the day, it is what it is, and what it is, is sad :(

  66. sarahhazel says:

    …..or maybe he just forgot about that line…LOL…
    (don’t mind me…..it’s a slow day)

  67. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–???

  68. tami lyn says:

    sarah~ tried to upload that song on soundcloud i was working on with the ocean of tears chorus but it wouldn’t let me record more than 20 seconds :( think it must be my computer cuz i still can’t do certain things on twitter but i can if i use my friend’s computer. just so u know i wasn’t BSing about writing the song, lol!

    tami lyn–oh, I thought you were talking about my thought on BOTW….lol….
    but hey, keep on working on that song of yours….don’t rush! :)

  71. kimk says:

    sarahhazel he did? hmm so as not to be too sad?

  72. kimk says:

    muscles!!!!

  73. tami lyn says:

    sgj~ oh i just meant in general in the world. and david seems very super sensitive to others’ pain and maybe he is still in pain with his back thing? don’t know but maybe that’s why he repeated that line in the song??

  74. tami lyn says:

    sarah- i’m gonna write the lyrics here since soundcloud is not working for me. have part of a melody but it’s not very good :(

  75. tami lyn says:

    the sunshine turned to gray
    that day u went away
    the pain inside my heart
    is only at its start
    u were everything to me
    but it can’t be
    chorus:
    ocean of tears
    envelopes me
    unsteadies me
    my tears won’t let me see
    next vs:
    this rain is never ending
    still my love to u i’m sending
    my spirit is descending into darkness, only darkness
    (then chorus again)
    the tears i cried
    are gone now
    just like you
    where are u?
    never again to see your face
    or meet u in some distant place
    the dreams i had for u and me
    were never truly meant to be
    and now i see
    now i see

    Hello. Fans here keep talking about how much they love David’s “being” (for brevity sake) as well as his incredible voice and talent. I’ve also read how much everyone appreciates his standards and morals etc (as do I). Just out of curiosity, could you like songs sung by an artist who was nasty, ala Chris Brown or a rapper who has a rap sheet? If you really loved the song, would you buy it? I don’t know why I thought of this today but I’ve bought songs I love by artists that I have no clue what their personality or personal life is like, so I was just wondering. I do love that David makes it so easy to love both him and his music.

  77. LurkyTurkey says:

    I just reread my post and I don’t in any way want to be inflammatory or anything and I hope no one here takes my question any deeper than just a question.

  78. kimk says:

    LurkeyTurkey I like and listen to the music that is out there today. when I do hear CB on my radio I might turn it off but for the most part I do not.
    hasn’t been too bad out there lately if I think about it.
    ok not exceptionally quality music but for the most part nothing too crazy.

  79. tami lyn says:

    turkey~ it’s a weird thing. sometimes i really like a song and know nothing about the person or band. other times i really like the singer and then like most of their songs but not all of them. i like alot of chris brown’s song but i would never buy them or see him in concert. i’ll listen if he’s on the radio but that’s it. david is the only singer whose CDs i will buy even if i don’t like the song choices just cuz i love his voice so much and respect him as a person.

  80. tami lyn says:

    maybe i should send those lyrics to david and he could write the melody since i suck at it so bad lol!

  81. Janel aka Nellie says:

    supergrandjudie? What stuff I shared? Nah, I’m no bigger a fan than most.

  82. cq#DA2014 says:

    Lurkeyturkey, intersesting question. I have and do like a lot of singers that had/have questionable personal lifes. I love all of Michael Jackson’s songs, I really think he was a genius, but his personal life was very questionable.
    As far as David goes..would I like his music and phenomenal voice if he did something with his personal life that was considered questionable, yes, I would still be a fan would buy and support his music. To me it’s about the music, being that David is a good guy is just a bonus.

  83. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–love the lyrics to your OOT song. :D

  84. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–@3:05–could be…..

  85. tami lyn says:

    sarah- oh thankyou sooo much :)

  86. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–maybe you know somebody who’s good with melodies who can help you.

  87. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Janel- The pictures. and that amazing scrapbook. Yes, you are a great fan. Why? Because I said so! That’s what my mother would always say. :grin:

  88. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn- You wrote those words. Wow, very good. You should copyright your words or whatever makes it yours so no one can use it.

  89. tami lyn says:

    sgj~ thanks! :) i had a melody in my head but couldn’t get it on paper cuz i don’t have a piano. and the notes i hear in my head i don’t know what notes they are lol! so i was just gonna sing it on soundcloud but it didn’t work.

  90. tami lyn says:

    sarah- yeah maybe there is someone out there lol

  91. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn – i agree with sarahhazel about someone writing the music but I still think you should make the words your own first. Just so no one grabs them and they take credit for it.

  92. tami lyn says:

    sgj~ yeah good idea but i have no idea how to do that.

    hmm.. warning if you don’t like to read anything that doesn’t say David is totally amazing!

  109. kimk says:

    remember David himself said Begin was Easy Listening.. and for a reason it is.
    not really pop or rock just very nice even tempered arrangements.
    what I think KB does for the most part no?
    not sure if I ever asked this question but does KB do any pop or rock with his music?
    anyway.. will take it he felt what I did about Broken.

  110. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–LOL….he’s got that thing even back then! ;)

  111. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ha that he does!!

  112. Kimk , sarahhazel, for some reason i can just picture David on stage swaying with some of the music on Begin. Just like he did on THIS CHRISTMAS and CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN.

  126. Candy says:

    GAH- A guy on AGT just sang Imagine, I cried through the whole thing, not because his rendition was amazing(it was really good) but because it transported me back to that magical moment on AI7 when David sang it and stunned the world and captured my heart forever…

  127. pocoelsy says:

    Hi all,

    Breanne, vote often :) he’s leading :)

    Tami Lyn, You can write lyrics and it’s beautiful, why don’t you sing it and upload on youtube :) so we could hear how the song turn out, hehe.

    If I have time today I’ll go look for “the little green” gem at the mall !! see if they have stock in my town!!, but don’t wanna get my hope too high since I don’t live in KL.haha …I’m a little bit countryyyy..

  128. tami lyn says:

    pocoelsy~ thankyou so much! :) i have never put anything on YT but i have a friend who has and she might be willing to help me. i will try and see if i can do that :)

  129. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–aww…. :cry:

  130. pocoelsy says:

    Tami lyn, no rush … we can wait …but urrr hurry up, call your friend hehe.

  131. sarahhazel says:

    This video always gets to me…. *sniff*
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDOwYODCaaQ&feature=related

  132. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Candy- I watched the end of AGT when the guy was finished “Imagine” Nobody mentioned David, did they?? Hmmmm I cried when the little girl and boy tango dancers were crying when they were done and got the standing O. The group was amazing.

  133. pocoelsy says:

    Candy, pretty much the same :( when I heard a song sung by others that David used to sing, it painfully remind me of him.

  134. tami lyn says:

    pocoelsy~ haha :) i will call her tomorrow. wish i could get the melody out of my head and onto paper, that would help. but i need a piano! lol

  135. pocoelsy says:

    Kimk, thanks for the link at 6:20pm. I totally disagree with the guy about Angel that David didn’t deliver impactful-hair raising listen!! this is the song that get my tearduct over work haha even just only a few words into the song when he sings “and it’s hard at the end of the day” I get tearyeye all the time :( everytime, he sounded so sadd !!!

  136. pocoelsy says:

    Sarahhazel, sniff sniff is right for that vid, somehow I love the fan’s scream on there eventhough it’s loud, the Pinoys love David and they couldn’t contain it <3, looked like David was emotional too !!

  137. nora says:

    I think I’m all voted out for now. I think the other fans voting for their group are waiting for us to go to bed, so they can continue to vote, we did our best for tonight. I might throw in a few more before I go to bed.

  138. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    kimk… I read the article you posted at 6:20 PM…..Even though the reviewer didn’t think David left a mark with his rendition of easy listening songs we have to remember he did the album for fans and had VERY LITTLE TIME to write his own material for an new album….It is AWESOME this reviewer acknowledged that the best song on the album was David’s original song….Just think what we are gonna have to look forward to when he comes back…WOW…..May be too difficult for us to handle….And Candy….I was hooked on David when he sang Imagine too….It was incredible…I don’t think I was ever touched like that before in my life by a singer with a voice and style like David’s……From that moment on I was a gonner………..Miss Vicki

  139. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hey guys….Where can I see Nandido Ako episodes?….Is it true it will be coming out on DVD????? Miss Vicki

    sarahhazel…Thanks for posting David singing Heaven in Manila….I cry everytime I watch that performance….He is such an awesome performer and he has more passion than any other singer I know….Miss Vicki

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    My computer is still shutting off without
    warning, so I’m going to say G’night, but
    if my computer cooperates, I may end up
    sharing a comment or two. Hope everyone
    is having a great week :grin:

  144. I love to watch David in concert in Manila. The fans just pump him up. Great concert.
    I’m going to chat for a little bit, then vote on wise-poll, maybe i will lurk before bed,
    if not Goodnight everyone.

  145. Amanda Jane says:

    Hey guys, just dropping in to say hi; hope everyone’s doing OK. Seems like a lot of heavy, flooding rains still occurring all over the country from the remnants of Isaac.
    But hey, the week’s almost over already! (…or maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part :) )

  146. cq#DA2014 says:

    Linda, when watching those fabulous videos from Manila, no one can tell me that having a pumped audience doesn’t bring out the best in David. The audience were on fire and you could just tell that David was at the top of his game. Screaming fans is what a performer craves, imo.

  147. By chance says:

    Hi all!
    I can’t seem to stop thinking today about Ronald’s words in today’s post……they have been floating around in my head all day!! ……..”many singers can sing, but what I really admire is the life he gave in every song”…….”there is something good behind this person why he sings like that”. I’ve asked myself the question again today….would I be a fan of David’s if I only like his music? I wonder.
    It certainly wasn’t just his beautiful voice that struck my heart last December. It was the light in his eyes and the goodness that radiated from his heart that so deeply touched mine. It was how I felt inside when he sang. And then how those feelings were confirmed when I read articles and listened to interviews, awkward and redundant as they sometimes were, that I saw this person shining through. I realized the things he said early on that were important to him were being played out in his life later. He was true to his word, he was “walking the walk”.
    It is his heart that made me more than a casual listener who enjoyed his music ( which is something I can say about many people), to a devoted fan, who will love, support, and care about him always…….and comment on a fan site for heavens sake!!
    I wonder how many lives David has influenced for good by knowing and being true to his heart? Ronald’s is just another example. It makes me proud and happy to be fan. It may not make him a superstar, but I think as long as he is true to his heart and God, his light will always shine for those lucky enough to see and feel it, and he will continue to be a force for good in the world.

    Oh dear….thank you for letting me get those thoughts out of my head……it’s a little long, huh, and I am anything but eloquent……but,.thanks for listening. Goodnight FOD friends.

  148. By chance says:

    Oh, and tami lyn ?….great lyrics!

  149. tami lyn says:

    bychance~ thankyou! :) just wish i could come up with a great melody. now that i’m trying to do it i realize how insanely difficult it is and how incredibly talented david is, all the amazing and beautiful songs he has written!

  150. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hey By chance I agree with evertything you said and I love David for many of those same reasons….but never discount that David will be a Superstar one day….I truly belive that once he gets back from his Mission he will set the world on fire again…It might take a while, but I am confident he is a talent not to be reckoned with…..Miss Vicki

  151. kimk says:

    Heaven, This Christmas, When You Say You Love Me, Bubbly.. David could be very popular if he sang more of these type songs.

  152. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    kimk …..I ageee…especially if he or other writers help him write fab songs like those….Someone said most AI alums do not make it big only because they do not have the right catchy popular song….Either David needs to write one fantastic song that can appeal to the masses or he needs to have a writer work with him or write one for him….Miss Vicki

  153. By chance says:

    Miss Vickie …..I do think you’re right. Eveything he has done up to this point is just building for what is to come. How lucky we are to watch it unfold!

    Good luck, tami lyn. I have no skills in the writing music or lyrics department. At least you got one down!

  154. tami lyn says:

    bychance- thanks, u are so kind :) goodnite

  155. Virtue #2014 says:

    Nora and any New England fans, is there any way we could do a get together at a restaurant this Sunday around 4PM? I’m thinking somewhere in Massachusetts and not too pricey. We can keep it simple; I just would love to meet some of you. Any one? Any ideas?

  156. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Random….I just love the pic of David about seven pictures up from this thread…the one with him in the blue (or gray) and white striped shirt singing his heart out with the veins in his neck showing……gotta say that is VERY SEXY…..Night all..Sweet David Dreams……Miss Vicki
