David Sleighs Us!

I spent a good part of the night viewing the Sleigh Ride nominations, and it was great to remember all the incredible performances of the MKOC Tour!  I’ve seen most of these vids before, but with David away and no Christmas tour this year, it was a bittersweet experience to watch all the screaming fans and David just soaking up all that energy and turning it into pure magic on the stage!

Thank you for the amazing vid nominations – it was hard work watching all of them to pick out ones to put in the poll – NOT!  Sleigh Ride was the opening song of the MKOC tour, and David was on FIRE!  Running all over the stage and so many adorable hand motions (think chestnuts popping: pop-pop-pop).  I lost track of how many times David pointed to someone in the audience when he sang “…Sleigh ride together with youuuuuuu” which was followed by high pitched screams from every fan who was SURE David was pointing directly at them!  I think it’s fair to say that David would like to go on a sleigh ride with ALL of his fans – he’s gonna need a gigantic sleigh!

For your viewing and voting pleasure, the “Sleigh Ride” nominees for the MKOCFTH virtual concert – all together now….. Neighhhhhhhh:

Sunday Poll:  Climb Every Mountain

David’s heartfelt invitation to his fans to support ChildFund was underscored by his emotional performance of “Climb Every Mountain” – its positive message of hope and striving to reach your dreams resonated with the audience and was reflected in the amazing support ChildFund received throughout the MKOC tour.

Help us select a CEM performance to include in our MKOCFTH virtual concert by sending us a link via twitter or in comments!  Tomorrow, vote on your fave!

David Climbs to #2 Spot on Musiqtone!

Go-Getters getting it DONE!  Musiqtone predicted another 1-2 sweep by Tswift, but they may have underestimated the power of the ArchuVote as David’s EH breaks the “stranglehold” and moves into 2nd place!  We’ve been here before – and there’s nothing wrong with 2nd place – except it’s not 1st place!  So calling all Archies to join together and flex your voting muscle in this LAST cycle to get David and EH to #1!!

Carrie Underwood to star in remake of The Sound of Music

Filing this under “News related to Climb Every Mountain” lol – but it was interesting to hear that there will be a tv version remake of The Sound of Music.  Many people think this classic movie, originally starring Julie Andrews, is a classic better left alone, while others are curious to see how Carrie will adapt her “country accent” to the role of Maria von Trapp.  I personally love The Sound of Music, and we know that Carrie can sing – so something to watch while we wait for 2014!

  11. Good morning everyone. I love the post Kalei, so much to see and vote on, take me a while to watch all vids and decide. Of course to me they are all good in thier own unique way.

    The MKOC tour 2011 by marcella, wow! It will save that for tonight, when everything is done and i have settled down.

    I did all my voting this morning, will be voting through the day. TV5 needs alot of votes, its getting left behind.

    I have house cleaning to do, ((YIPPEEEEE)). Yeah right!!! But i will be lurking through the day.

  12. lct#DA2014 says:

    Thanks Sarahazel! I’m gonna pin it now! Also the one you just linked with the green eyes! Love my David pinterest collection! :)

  13. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–saving Marcella’s vid for tonight, too!

    lct–you’re welcome!

  14. lct#DA2014 says:

    Good luck tonite then because the video is gonna get you all worked up! It should come with a warning!

  15. sarahhazel says:

    lct–LOL….might not be able to sleep after that….haha! :lol:

  16. Anita says:

    Hello Everyone! Thanks Kalei for the wonderful post. I love this choosing songs for David’s concert this year! FUN! FUN! Lots of great Sleigh Ride performances! I think David’s redition of LDB on the Dapo and Friends is beautiful, but I’ve always been partial to his LDB performances during his tour. I just find them so incredible! He puts so much energy and passion in his vocal delivery, that is really is so amazing, and to me, even more impressive than his Dapo and Friends recording!!!

  17. lct#DA2014 says:

    Sarahazel, do you happen to have the pic of David shaking hands with Obama?

  18. nora says:

    sarahazel-David is at #2 on the musiqutone poll the one you are looking at is the old one we are now on cycle 48, he came in #2 on 47, the poll you should look at is the one that you start voting on, not the one that comes on when you are finished. Already put in 100 votes this morning and will put in another 100 later if they let me, have voted on the other polls also. Going into Boston with my daughters shortly, will check out poll on Sleigh ride later.
    Linda didn’t receive my FEE today either, don’t know what is going ob. Hope you had better luck BBLT

  19. sarahhazel says:

    Voted for the Ventura SL….love D’s & the crowd’s energy, voice in top form, love both entrance & ending, , great vantage point, excellent quality of audio/video!

  20. sarahhazel says:

    lct–nope, but I’ll try to find it….we’ll see…. :)

  21. lct#DA2014 says:

    thanks for trying Sarahazel. I’m looking too!

  22. sarahhazel says:

    lct–only one I could find right now and it’s small

    Happy Saturday! :D

    Kalei ~ You’ve put together an awesome Saturday post. Thanks!!

    One year ago today I was in Westbury for the kick-off of the MKOC tour! What an awesome time that was! Miss David! Hope we hear some details later tonight on the “thingy” happening later today ;) hahaha

  24. Nora, I gave up expecting to receive anything. I get too disappointed. I try not to think about it. I have another one coming, maybe i will get that one.

    Have a nice trip with your daughter, My daughter and i are taking one Mon Dec 10th. I really like bieng with her, we don’t get to talk a lot about whats going on with our lives because of work. Of Course sometimes she want to act like my mother and i have to put a cork on it Ha! Ha!

  25. nora says:

    sarahazel, sorry I was wrong and you were right, just voted and saw what you said so sorry. Must make sure before I open my big mouth.
    Great post today as usual Kalei.

  26. Didn’t mean to post wasn’t finished.

    I just wanted to say that when she sees me getting mad her favorite saying to me is

    ((TAKE IT EASY FELICIA)). Shes a duecy.

  27. nora says:

    Linda-maybe I will try not to look for my CD, when it comes it comes. Know what you mean about daughters, I have 2 that some times think they are my Mother, but what would we do without them. Mine live very close by. Does your daughter live near you?Have to go now BBLT. Have a great day.

  28. kimk says:

  37. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sarah, telling me to break a leg might not be good. I’m way too clumsy. Ha!

  38. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–LOL….

  39. I’m back, voted again, bit Musiqtone won’t let me vote again yet! Will try later.

  40. Philly Fan says:

    Just finished watching an episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that now features David Foster and his wife. And guess who was a guest @ their the dinner party that was shown during the show. Michael Johns from David’s AI season. Did not know that he is now possibly working with David Foster. He was featured singing @ the table and was not too impressed even though I like him. They also kinda of sung a little of Amazing Grace but no offense it wasn’t all that great. David would have blown them all away. I know that David worked with Foster but I wonder why it never continued? Anyone hear of Johns working with David Foster? Just curious.

  41. sarahhazel says:

    Done with my 1st 100 votes!!! Keep them coming, Archies!!!

  45. sarahhazel says:

    just found a pic of sarah with jeff! don’t know how to link it here. and in the comments someone wrote~ aah my future father-in-law! LOL

  114. tami lyn says:

    just found another one of sarah and david but don’t know how to put it here. i just shared it on my twitter page!

  115. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–you put your cursor in the middle of the picture….click on the number (#of notes) & it will take you to the larger pic….then you copy and paste the link above.

  116. tami lyn says:

    sarah~ yeah what an awesome collection of pics she has!!! amazing!

  117. tami lyn says:

    thanks sarah, but i do not know how to copy and paste

  118. Kimk, thanks for bringing over the ONE VOICE CHILDRENS CHOIR, they sang Melodies of Christmas very well. Loved it.

  119. Anita says:

    Stalker Sarah??? Had she really been stalking David? I sure as heck hope not!

  120. angelbymyside says:

    Just finished watching Marcella’s video of the MKOC tour……..IT WAS FABULOUS! Felt like I was actually at a concert! Her editing is seamless….truly amazed at what she did! If you haven’t watched it, you must!!! :)

  121. angelbymyside says:

    I find the entire story about Sarah disturbing! :(

    Abms, right now I guess she is able to gain access to many celebs. What happens when she is denied access? I agree, it is disturbing. For now she seems to be attached with Angus Jones.

  125. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ jinx :lol:

  126. kimk says:

    that is her nickname cause she does that with a ton of celebs.. David’s MKOC concert in LA she got a pic of her and Justin Bieber cause he was nearby. don’t remember if she went to see David too.
    http://noticiasmontreal.com/44243/stalker-sarah-tiene-16-anos-y-mas-de-5-000-fotografias-junto-a-celebridades/

    here is a few of her pics with some of them.

  127. kimk says:

    angel ha! going in for that vid now.. thank goodness for all the talented David fans!!!

  128. tami lyn says:

    abms~ it is kinda disturbing but maybe it’s her way of trying to become famous herself and/or meet and marry a famous guy. she must have some kind of connection to get into all those award show after partys. maybe her father or mother is a producer or director or something?

  129. kimk says:

    ohh.. so that thingy might be going thingy right about thingy!!!

    OHHHH YAY, It’s THINGY Time!

    tami-I dont think you have to worry about David liking Sarah the stalker, I think its safe to say she isnt his type.

  140. kimk says:

    JUMP!!!!

    Zero Gravity.. love the crowd shots too!!!
    NEED A DAVID CONCERT!!!!!

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

    Hey Candy! The crow flies at midnight, but the aligator walks before dawn, on Tuesdays.

  142. kimk says:

    omg I see peeps I know!!
    love this video!!!

  143. Candy says:

    HOLYMOLY- just started watching Marcella’s video….only two minutes in and Im already speechless!

  144. I,ve been listening to Sirius Christmas music all day. A lot of singers i never heard of, but no David. I can’t believe it. Some people have no taste for music.

  145. Candy, i’m going to watch it before i go to bed so i can enjoy it with no interruptions.

    They are playing SLEIGH Ride, nothing like David sings it.

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

    Hey Linda! I know what ya mean. I do have to day, I’m hearing David more at work, stores, etc…. Not sure whats behind it, but I’m glad. How anyone cannot include Davids Christmas music, well, it just doesnt make any sense.

  147. Candy says:

    This has to be the ultimate fan gift!!! The amount of work that must have gone into editing the clips so flawlessly.

  148. Anita says:

    I had forgotten that David sings Neighhh at the end of each Sleigh Ride. How cute!!! David’s renditions of the song are simply the best I’ve ever heard!

  149. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hello everyone. Just read Kalei’s great post and then watched Marcella’s huge Holiday surprise to us. It is amazing. It was just as good as being there live. It was a truly spectacular concert. Not spectacular with glamour and glitz but spectacular because of David’s music and personality. He is wonderful and more. Thank you Marcella. You did a spectacular job!! :grin: <3

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

    I am watching Marcella’s video, OH MY HECK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just got goose bumps & chills, head to toe, as David sang Climb Every Mountain, WOWOWOWOWOW!!!!

    THANK YOU MARCELLA THE MAGNIFICENT!!!!!!!!!!!!! :grin:

  151. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Anita- I agree. David has a way of making the songs he sings, his own. He fills the air with music and harmony. Just gotta love him! :smile:

  152. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Janel- Good luck tonight and want to tell you thanks for those super pictures of David. They are so good.

  153. Hi! Beth, Sgj–Hope you’ve had a good Sat. I have been away voting. Got a lot done at home today so i feel like i accomplished something and didn’t waste my day away. In fact going to try and vote on musiqtone for the 3rd time if it lets me.

    I want to leave my night free to watch Marcellas MKOC video.

  154. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Just checked and it’s 80 degrees South of the Border and the thingy started at 8:00pm their time so it’s 9:59pm there now. Any word on our foreign reporter yet??

  155. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- You are going to love Marcella’s video. Our man was in the zone at all the concerts. breathe!!

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

    Hey Linda! Sounds like you have had a productive day. I did some shopping, did some voting, watching Marcella’s video, fabulous.

    supergrand, as I said to Candy earlier The crow flies at midnight, but the aligator walks before dawn, on Tuesdays. Thats code for no news yet :grin: , that I’m aware of anyway. But if the bird that flew south, sings like a canary, then the carrier pigeon can deliver the you know what, about the you know what, thats if the wind blows while the mountain stands still & the daffadils bloom in the desert :roll: Understand?

  157. angelbymyside says:

    Beth ~ Your comment at 7:01 has me in stitches!!! :lol: :lol:

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

    Hey abms :lol:

  159. Beth–I didn’t understand any of your codes, I’m glad you can LoL!!!

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

    Linda, lol, well, at least one of us does :roll: :grin:

  161. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth- You are a riot. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time. Mr. SGJ and I adore you. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

  162. Candy says:

    ROTF Beth- My sides hurt from laughing! I understood you perfectly!!

  163. Beth—Now if you used sign language i might understand you. Ha!Ha!

    I’ve heard those codes before in the past, but never knew what they meant. Maybe you can break them down for me someday, curious now. You know curiousity killed the cat.

  164. I just voted for the 3rd time. I may try late tonight to see if they let me.

  165. Anita says:

    sgj-I really can’t think of any Christmas song David has performed that anyone has sung better! He can even give the great Josh Groban a run for his money!!!

  166. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth- That coding sounds like some codes from an Abbott and Costello movie and The Three Stooges with some of your own personal ones. You have made my night.

  167. kimk says:

    Beth lol me thinks the Christmas Lily is in full bloom tonight and singing like a canary!!

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

    Awwwwe supergrand, thats so sweet, you’re going to make me cry :grin: The feeling is mutual :grin:

    Candy :lol: I think I made myself perfectly clear :lol:

    Linda, lol, the Fine Feathered Fellows have to do a security check on you first & if you pass that, I’ll share the secret handshake & if you can do that, then we’ll talk about letting you in on the code :grin: Actually, I can do my name in sign language, the sign for coffee & thank you.

    Its been a tough month, but being able to come here & joke around with you guys, just makes things so much better, I love all of you guys, TONS & TONS :grin:

  178. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Going to vote now. BB in a half hour.

  179. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    G’night supergrand & MrSgj :grin:

    (say what????? :lol: )

  182. Beth— If you say so HA Ha Goodnight (((hugs)))

  183. Anita says:

    David singing Chestnuts…mmmmm, soooooo good! David’s voice almost give me chills hearing him sing this. Chestnuts and This Christmas both are soooo romantic sounding when David sings them. I’ve heard a number of people sing these two songs, and no one makes them sound near as romantic as the Archuleta! He is a killer for sure, LOL!!!

  184. kimk says:

    huh?! lol any newsky yet!?

    Anita Chestnuts was off the chart on tour and the video!!

  185. Miss Vicki says:

    I braved all the malls today and listened to David Christmas music in the car ALL DAY!!!!! Hey guys…..wasn’t a year ago this weekend that we were all in Stroudsburg together……What A weekend……Miss Vicki

  186. Miss Vicki says:

    Hey Anita…..I agree no one sings songs as romantic as David does…..Miss Vicki

  187. Miss Vicki says:

    Who is this Sarah person I missed all the hype about earlier in the day????? Miss Vicki

  188. Candy says:

    heard through the thingy grapevine there is some news about your know doing you know what happening now! RUNNNNNN

  189. collegemom says:

    no idea but Gladys is in TheVoice chatroom.

  190. Candy says:

    you know who, welcomed your know who with open arms. GAH!!!

  191. Candy says:

    I will tell you now, it is more then obvious he knows what is going on, welcomed the opportunity and knows the end result…it is getting to fans.

  192. Candy says:

    and you know who was invited you know where for the next two thingys!! :)

  193. kimk says:

    Candy missed some. glad to see Gladys was welcomed.

  194. Candy says:

    kimk-very welcomed! Im convinced this is Davids gift to us…he knows exactly what is happening and its his way of reaching out the best he can.

  195. Virtue says:

    Sarah might be just photo shopping her pic in. Who knows?

    Have a good night, peeps

  196. Anita says:

    kimk-I wish David would have sang Chestnuts more often on tour than he did.

    Well, I better say goodnight everyone!!

  197. Candy says:

    APPROVAL!!!! *tossing confetti*

  198. ray says:

    candy didn,t i say that before,it,s his way of commucateing without breaking the rules ,just love him,and you know who should be embressed abouy sending emails to chile . so there you know who .LOL david loves us

  199. Candy says:

    What a great Christmas present that is!!! Thanks David! And Gladys!

  200. Candy says:

    Yes Ray you did!! I feel like a giant weight has been lifted off my shoulders, the shoulders of the fanbase too.

  201. Candy says:

    and maybe now we can act like the adults we are and not have to speak in code!!

  202. ray says:

    and they read the blogs, happy happy i am

  203. Candy says:

    Ray-how about that… I love that they read her blog, and gave their approval.

  204. Candy says:

    Bocelli’s The Prayer in Italian????? Bury me now!

  205. Charlotte says:

    Candy, me too. I have been dying to hear him sing that song. Now he does and he’s upteen thousand miles away. So not fair. He better sing it for us when he comes home.

  206. Candy says:

    Well Im off to bed with a HUGE smile on my face! Good Night all and Good Night David & Gladys!

  207. Patty-Ann says:

    Candy and Ray: I can’t believe if David sang this. It’s one of my all time favorite songs. omg Imagine. love this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu3o8W5JMuU

  208. Charlotte says:

    Patty Ann, I have been addicted to that song since it was first released. Been dying to hear David sing ever since I first heard his amazing voice. Praying he’ll sing for us come 2014.

  209. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Hi everyone! Our concert went well. We did really good and our trio got a lot of good praise from the ladies in the choir and the people we sang for. Gave me extra confidence! On the way home we were singing other Christmas carols not on our program. One was Angels We Have Heard on High. I sang the “gloria” chorus the way it was done in Angels in the Realms of Glory during MOTABS. Some of the other altos followed suit. We sounded so good. I wish I would have recorded it. Someone from the back of the bus said “gee we should be a choir”. LOL

  210. Charlotte says:

    Congrats on a great show, Janel. Glad it went so well for you :)

  211. Miss Vicki @DA#2014 says:

    OMG….If David sang The Prayer….I would be goner…..Such a beautiful song…..I know he could sing that much better than Celine Dion and Gosh Groban……Been lurking tonight…..Gotta go to bed now…….Miss Vicki

  212. Patty-Ann says:

    Charlotte I hope you get to hear him sing too….believe he will sing it’s just the waiting that’s hard.
    Janel, glad it went well for you!
    Goodnight.

  213. Miss Vicki @DA#2014 says:

    Hey Janel…Congrats on your choral concert…..Miss Vicki

  214. Charlotte says:

    Patty Ann, I heard that about the waiting. 2013 better pass quickly and smoothly.

  215. Lucy says:

    I hope Gladys writes about this concert too, I went to the Voice but couldn’t get to the chat room, I hope we hear more! So David knows that us fans are getting feedback from Gladys and he is okay with that? Is that what Ray is saying? That’s awesome! Good nite guys :)

  216. Charlotte says:

    Patty Ann, should correct some typos in that other post. I meant to say been dying to hear David sing The Prayer since I first heard his voice. I agree with Miss Vicki, I’ll be a goner, too, if I get to hear him sing it.

  217. Patty-Ann says:

    oh sorry, I misunderstood thought you never heard him sing. haha.
    I know. I always loved that song too.

  218. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Thanks everyone! We sang this song called Mixed Up Christmas. There was a part that the altos really did get mixed up. But Margaret covered it so well she just got exasperated in a funny way and said “alright now you mixed up ladies.” Then told us to start over at a certain point. She made it look like our “mix”-up was part of the “Mixed-up Christmas.” LOL

  219. Lucy says:

    Approval for what? What gift from David and Gladys? You guys just kinda jumped in with that info, might need to elaborate more, what did I miss?

  220. Charlotte says:

    Patty Ann, it’s okay. We seriously need an edit button here. Would make things much easier. I’ve been to four shows and will keep going for the rest of my life or as long as he keeps singing/performing, whichever comes first.

  221. Charlotte says:

    Lucy, I think the approval was for The Voice blog. They seem to be okay with sharing news there. Thank goodness.
    As for the gift, Gladys is going to bring him one with a note from all of us the next time she sees him.

  222. Charlotte says:

    Gonna go ahead and get off now. Gotta go to church in the morning. Night all, sweet David dreams :)

  223. Joanie/suttygal says:

    Hi guys!
    ..bringing back part of Pastel’s “recent reminder” with a little more~
    We all love David and support him in many ways, this is undeniable. And the point of our site is to celebrate David Archuleta, the artist, and our writers work hard to share news/pix/stories/features that demonstrate David’s artistry and spirit. In doing that, our goal is to be inclusive of all fans while still holding to our FOD site policies.
    Our policy on mission subject matter remains the same. Although links remain allowed in comments, commentary on link content or on David’s personal missionary activities do not. Any mission related information we support and post here is info received from Kari, David (KS), or from Team Archuleta. Please help us in following these guidelines .

    I am wondering what they said that was wrong. I have read this twice and wonder what needed the reminder brought up again.

    I saw no reason for that. Sorry If I sound like I’m rebuffing you, but explain Please

  225. Joanie/@suttygal says:

    Hi Dorothy! Just to clarify: Our posted reminder was not in specific response to the comment you referenced. Instead, the reminder was posted as a general reminder of our FOD policy: links are allowed, but commenting on the content of those links or bringing in and discussing mission related content from other sources is not. If you have additional questions, please feel free to send us an email to fodfrontpage@gmail.com :) Thank you, the FOD staff.

    please check this video athttp://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=FTLGBfv4xaM&NR=1 , look closely at the first scene in the video ,the boy talking to Jesus sitting at the wooden bench very much like David , I almost teary eyed when i see this.

  229. Candy says:

    I guess my thoughts about an event open to the public being discussed are different…I can certainly understand not discussing what David is doing on a daily basis but a public event…sorry dont agree BUT will respect the rules of the site.

  239. kimk says:

    not only about this.. also about pics and other things that have happened that are not talked about or posted here and around.

  240. Candy says:

    kimk-I look at it this way..they’re the mods, its their site, their rules, their interpretation, either we (I) abide by them or go somewhere else. Unfortunately it draws lines in the sand…99% on one side…the other 1% on the other. But like I said, its ok, Ive never been a conformist! Im used to me! :)

  241. Dorothy says:

    I am just glad that other sites exists where FREE SPEACH ( like the American constitution provides for) is allowed. And to be honest the web design and content on other sites is a far cry better than here.
    Well I guess I need to sink back into obscurity again. I am just tired of the micromanagement.
    I remain your truely miss PERSONA – NON – GRATA oldphatone ;-)

  242. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I have to clarify something. I completely understand the FOD MODs wanting to set some guidelines. If they allow some things then there will always be that question as to what to allow and what not to allow. Allowing links is an easier way. I re-read Joanie’s post from last night and she was just restating rules. I’m sad though that some thought the post was directed to them.

  243. Janel aka Nellie says:

    To add to that, it’s hard because I too don’t like being “censored”. But, I think the MODS are trying to make everyone happy.
