Sparkly Silent Sunday
~Just a few tidbits to share with you on this “sparkly” silent Sunday. I was looking through AI Tour pics and videos from 2008 last evening which included David’s famous/infamous “sparkly” tour suit. You either loved it….or not, but no one can deny that no other 17 year old guy could have pulled it off and looked more stellar on stage wearing it!! The shine of the suit though, paled in comparison to the sparkle of his smile and eyes as he captivated each and every audience he sang before that summer.
Did we ever find out where that suit is now? Wherever it is, it hangs holding wonderful “sparkly” memories of an epic Idol tour with thousands of lives being touched by David Archuleta “live” for the first time.
Below are a few more favorite sparkly suit pics from Valerie during the Portland AI tour show. They were originally posted with “a warning”; I believe it still applies. :D *Click to bigger them*

Sparkly off stage in Wilkes Barre in 2008
@Scott_NJ shared this pic yesterday. It’s from Sept. 8th, 2008 when David met with fans outside the arena in Wilkes Barre, PA (also during the AI tour.) ~No suit here, but still sparkling! Thanks Scott!
A Sparkly Angel on a Silent Sunday
Along with the above photos, I’ll add a couple videos from a “sparkling” angel on this silent Sunday. First, “Angel” from Bridgeport CT from Archieandcook. Wish the entire performance could have been recorded, but this is awesome in many aspects; the closeups, the audience, the stage, and his vocals…wow just wow!
Then, fast-forward to December 2011 in Verona where David sang Silent Night to a mesmerized audience as sparkly snow fell all around us. I remember sitting there wishing the moment would never end~ Thank you to Zerogravity111A for this magnificent video!
And just for fun, David’s vlog from a little over 3 years ago, recorded in Alsaka where he performed at the Alaska State Fair. He “sparkles” as he talks about Alaska, family, and recording Christmas music with Kurt Bestor. I also love seeing that “white shirt” hanging in the closet behind him….makes me think about the white shirts he has hanging in his closet where he is now.
