Sunday Serenade: Climb Every Mountain

MKOC CEM SLC Cap Shelley’s vid **click to bigger**

As an avid fan of The Sound Of Music growing up, I was thrilled to learn that David had chosen to sing “Climb Every Mountain” for the My Kind Of Christmas tour last year. The song about hopes and dreams rolls gently up and down and then swells to a chorus which sends goosebumps to my arms and tears to my eyes.

Singing for the children of ChildFund, David boldly and passionately delivered this classic song and it’s encouraging important message like no other! Support a child, and help them to believe in themselves. Say “yes” to someone who has heard “no” too many times. David spoke, and I listened.

I sent my Christmas card off to my sponsored child “Alba” from the Honduras last week, and I quietly once again thanked David for helping to bring her into my life one year ago. :)

    Good morning, folks!!!
    ◘ ♡ Sonora Ramos ♡ ◘ ‏@DeeVeeDoLL

    ~: Kudos to ya @DavidArchie for winning the 24K Gold Record Award. :) So proud of you! Miss you POGI! ♥ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjT78QkLFME&feature=youtu.be … @kariontour

  2. kimk says:

    good morning sarahhazel!!

    LOVING the MKOC concert video.. we ARE BLESSED with such talented fans!!

    http://youtu.be/39YQ2-qnpRo

    gosh.. wish there were more folks around to see this!
    it deserves to be seen so folks know just how good he is!!
    the editing skills alone are INCREDIBLE!!!

  3. kimk says:

    lol forget how good he is in that video for a second.. the closeups alone would sell them!

  4. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I chose David’s performance of Angels We Have Heard on High on Fox & Friends, December 2009 as my VPOTD (LOL thanks Sarah), since it’s the song our choir sang on the bus ride home yesterday. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvguzfS3Mu0

  5. Philly Fan says:

    Marcella’s video is so amazing and I agree if more people could see his live performance he would get the recognition he is so deserving of by non fans and the music industry. He is an amazing live performer. I know a lot of people/fans are Josh Groban fans but David runs rings around him. David can do it all. R&B /Pop/ etc. and I will even say with the right rap artist/song he would shine. I loved every song that was performed on that MKOCT video…..But Ave Maria and Silent Night are my favorites. He sings it with such reverence and passion.

  6. kimk says:

    Philly Fan yes.. also loved how she put the between song chatter in and the interaction with the children for Fa La La La there too. all of it is just perfect!
    think if and when David comes back he puts himself out there on TV and such folks will finally realize it too! think it is more folks haven’t seen him around for so long now.
    think that NY performance was his last? forget!

  7. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    Good Morning everyone …and thanks to Joanie for another great post ~lead picture went straight to the vault :)

    Beautiful fan tribute from Nikki ~ so well done! Clip with Pokemon shirt taken in Greensboro NC… ~first time I ever met David ~ wonderful memory.

    Enjoy your silent Sunday all ♥

  8. Philly Fan says:

    Yes Kimk! The thing that David did not get from his label was exposure to the public either thru Radio Play or the right shows. Don’t know if that was David’s desire not to be more in the limelight or it just didn’t happen for him based on his management @ the time not be aggressive enough. But in today’s music business all artist need exposure to the public so that non fans can make the decision as to what they want to buy/hear. But without it very hard to sell music and be revelent in today’s industry. Not saying that David should change who is his personally but he needs more exposure. Hopefully when he returns the buzz will “Begin” . JMHO

  9. Philly Fan says:

    *being aggressive. lol

  10. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    P.S. Kim remembers that INCREDIBLE day we met David for the very first time…
    Gosh, I wanna go back & do it all over again! #DA2014

  11. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBVJ787FDZY&playnext=1&list=PLEE61B364662B3C29&feature=results_main <— just had to go find a video of David in all his splendor that day ~crowd in love with him!

  12. Tracy says:

    This is where I go to read everything David, this is home…… Now where do I go to hear about stuff that is not aloud discussed here :(

  13. kimk says:

    Marylee lol how could I forget!! that VIP did us in for LIFE!!

  14. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    Forgot to mention the date: July 29, 2009 ~ Kim, that VIP was pure magic ~all David had to do was walk through that door in his Pokemon shirt & all there were instantly hypnotized & mesmerized! …and when he started in with HEAVEN…forget about it~we were in another world! Gee Whiz..how does he do it? I will NEVER forget that day as long as I live…thanks for your support or I may have fallen off my chair! lololol

  15. kimk says:

    Tracy aww.. think word will get around. could always follow me on twitter will dm you if you ask and I know. just think folks don’t want stuff out there that might cause slack.
    not just talking mish.. something like the jammies pic for instance. obviously
    I’m like Candy kind of do my own thing.

  16. kimk says:

    Marylee the voice.. ha resistance is futile.

  17. Janel aka Nellie says:

    This picture was shared here on FOD a few days ago (but can’t seem to find it). I’ve requested our wonderful artist Roselyn to draw it but I want to make sure credit to the photographer is given. If you know, let me know. Thanks. http://twitpic.com/bihtmd

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

    Hey kimk! How do you dm someone on twitter? And,
    can you share any info with me that way, regarding the
    you know who/the you know what? :grin:

  19. ray says:

    i love this site and the mods who runn it,but pleas take your head out of the sand,some of you,we can,t live in the past forever,we must look too the futture,so tallking about what david is doeing at his PUBLIC OUTINGS , PUBLIC THAT IS is not disrespecting him,he wants that,but he cannot breack the rules and get on the internet and say this, sorry fo9r the rant ,will not post here again

  20. Patty-Ann says:

    I will respect FOD’s policy rules. All that was posted by me was a song (a video) of what David supposedly sang at a public devotional. I don’t agree with that we can’t discuss the song. But, like I said, I respect FOD so. We are all loving fans of David and like discussing all things. I understand not getting in depth about his Mission, and I’m not talking about that, but discussing a song? ok.

  21. kimk says:

    Beth do you follow me? @kimak
    top right next to search link is what looks like a clog click on it and you will see direct messages. click on it and post there.
    I can just send it to you too.. let me see if I can find you.

  22. kimk says:

    Beth sent you a dm.

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

    Thanks kimk! I just sent you a dm, I think,lol.

  24. kimk says:

    Beth lol you did and I answered! you did great!

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

    Thanks kimk.

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

    Have a great day everyone, gotta go, chores to do. Ciao!

    Thanks kimk, you made my day :grin: TTYL!

  27. Patty-Ann says:

    Beth, I always LOVE your posts. Hope you don’t mind. I’m following you now too.

  28. mango says:

    I feel like I am missing something with all of the dms going on behind the scenes. Yikes! Is there anything “unmentionable” I need to go searching for???

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

    Thanks Patty-Ann, thats great.

  36. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Oh, there you are. LOLOL. Didn’t see those before my post.

  37. Good morning everyone on FOD, Hope you are all having a Blessed Sunday.

  38. granny Lyn from South Africa says:

    thanks Joanie for another great post
    the tribute video from Nikki is so special, just love how david enjoys surprizing his fans, cute and funny
    have a great week, chat soon xxx

  39. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–Hi! sorry about that…I’ll have Sundays as my “day off” from pics and gifs posting!(except Twitter stuff) :)

  40. I finally had time to watch Marcellas, MKOP concert video.
    OMJ!! What a wonderful way to end my Saturday. Stayed up until watching, couldn’t stop.
    Marcella you did an awesome job, I’m sure it took a long time to put all those pieces together. THANK YOU, THANK YOU , THANK YOU. I saved it in my favorites, so that i can watch it over and over again, whenever i feel blue.
    Nikki- what a great tribute video you put together for David. We have so many talented fans, i bet there are many more out there. We appreciate all the hard work you do.
    I’m not talented at all, but someone has to be the critics, I give you all an A+

  41. ” stayed up until 1 am”

  42. angelbymyside says:

    We can’t discuss a song that was sung at a PUBLIC devotional?????? :( ok then!!!

  43. angelbymyside says:

    Does it make sense to post a link when you can’t comment on it???

    See you guys on Twitter!! :D

  44. Dorothy says:

    The reminder of what and what cannot be shared is got everyone a bit jumpy. Well it has serious overtone of the communist regime of Stalin and Lennon etc… Now I know why I don’t come here much.
    If that pisses of the admin too bad. I will not push it by sharing what you don’t want me to share, but I think you have to seriously look at what this looks like.
    I remain yours Lil miss Persona-non-grata.

  45. Dorothy says:

    Oh by the way admin if that does piss you off go ahead and delete my comments.
    Tiananmen Square signing off – Good Day and Good Luck

  46. lessha says:

    Hi guys. I don’t want to cause problems but where do we find the video of the song sung at the devotional? I just miss seeing anything new from David.

  47. Patty-Ann says:

    Lessha – there is no song of David singing. Last thread I posted a video of Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli (not even of them, a lyric video) of what someone said David supposedly sang at the public devotional. That is all.

  48. lessha says:

    Patty-Ann, ok thanks. I was just confussed.

  49. Tracy says:

    So I guess most people will be talking on twitter and so forth, so thinking this site will probaly slow down some then if no one is here to talk about what everyone really wants to tak about. Wow is that what they want??

  50. Tracy says:

    Kimk- thank you but How do I find you and how do I dm you and so forth…..see im so lost on twitter, this was my home. :(

  51. cq#DA2014 says:

    Thank you Joanie for the glorious post.
    I too respect this site and it’s rules and enjoy coming here to see all the great work that mods do everyday. I don’t agree with some of the restriction so I’m so glad I can go to other sites and get what I think is respectful news from our man. Love all of the David fansites for different reasons.

  52. kimk says:

    Tracy I am @kimak on twitter. if you follow me I will dm you if you like. don’t mind.

  53. Ali says:

    I respect and appreciate what the mods are trying to do here. I think sometimes we forget how hard it is to try to serve such a diverse fanbase. All of the time and effort that is put into keeping this site going for David — done purely out of love for him and on a volunteer basis — is greatly appreciated.

    They are merely trying to make a space where fans who feel different ways about a volatile topic can feel comfortable to coexist.

    Most people know where I stand on mission topics. And I know where others stand. And I appreciate that we can come here to talk about David, even if its just to post a link. I know people are feeling upset about this both ways but I hope you’ll just take a minute to remember what a great service & community FOD offers to us all.

    We’re all missing David. I think it would be great if we could appreciate his spirit and stay together in whatever ways we can.

    Peace, you guys. <3

  54. Ali–Very nicely said, have a nice day. :smile: :smile:

  55. Patty-Ann says:

    Ali: Your point well taken. Just don’t get why the policy rules were brought out when there was only like 2 comments posted after my video link and it was all about the song not his mission. As I recall there were 2 whole posts where people were discussing Glady’s recap in length. What he sang, etc. etc. Don’t see why that was ok to discuss, but 2 measley comments about a song were not.

    I appreciate FOD as well. Love their posts. Come here every day even if I don’t always comment. There’s plenty of diversity and fansites to go to and twitter.

  56. Ali says:

    Or, you know, we could move on…

    SO HEY how about that amazing video of Marcella’s????
    When I saw the part with Ave Maria *thud*

    He is so good. It’s fairly ridiculous really.

    Hello to Linda, Patty-Ann and all lurkers!

  57. kimk says:

    Ali gah. that is what I call that concert video!!!

  58. Ali says:

    kimk – right??? I need to get that puppy burnt to a dvd so I can watch it on a bigger screen than my laptop! I love the part with all the kids before the fa lalalalallalaallalala song. lol.

  59. Ali says:

    I also forgot how good I Need A Silent Night was until I watched that video. It seems like that one gets forgotten a bit in the tour but its such a gorgeous cover. I had actually never heard it before David sang it.

  72. Kalei says:

    Thanks for the great Sunday post Joanie! Loved Nikki’s Tribute vid!

    The Reader’s Choice Poll Finals run through 12/31/12. Let’s make sure Nandito Ako, David and TV5 are #1! http://www.theentertainmentlifestyle.com/2012/12/finalists-tels-2nd-readers-choice.html

    Ali – thank you for your kind words of support – I’m glad you understand that we do our very best to give everyone a place where they feel welcome. We’re not professional web designers/writers – we’re fans just like everyone else who supports David and his music – we have jobs, kids and other responsibilities the same as everyone else. I know we can’t please 100% of the fans 100% of the time, but great care is taken to ensure that this site is a place where fans of all different perspectives can gather to support David.

    Wishing everyone a great Sunday!

  73. Ali says:

    Just stumbled across a podcast on iTunes where Mack Wilberg (music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir) talks about Glad Christmas Tidings show and how the songs were chosen, etc.
    I thought it was really interesting! It’s an hour long and included parts of some of the performances.
    http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/05-glad-christmas-tidings/id416206555?i=108336949&mt=2

    This may have already been posted and I just missed it. I didn’t realize that David has specifically requested that a Spanish song be included. That’s cool.

  74. Ali says:

    Gah. So many typos in my last post. Sorry!

    Hi Kalei :)

  75. kimk says:

    Linda both were great.. as I remember it didn’t he dance with her too and she did well?! spunky girl and I like that!

  76. glitter*girl says:

    omg just read some hilarious/interesting stuff on an old david Q&A site i’ve never seen before!!! supposedly david prefers girls with strong outgoing personalities , likes rats, refuses to kill bugs,he did have a date for the senior prom(he asked her, hmm..lol), uses a mint shampoo, smells like baby powder because he uses it on his body, his fav girls names are~ scarlett,savannah, and jade, is scared of thunderstorms and has a teddy bear named billy!!! :)

  77. kimk says:

    glittergirl lol well I remember the baby powder thingy from way back on idol days. do remember about him going to the prom and not ever seeing the girl but did see him all dressed up and as I recall there is a pic of a chef hat too somewhere? think they went to a japanese restaurant not sure.
    other stuff you got me!

  78. glitter girl, WOW! thats a lot of info, how long ago did he do this interview? Maybe some of his choices have changed with time, except for the baby powder, no wonder everyone says he smells like baby powder.

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

    Hey kimk & glitter girl! kimk, that was a winter dance, not the prom, I believe. He couldnt go to the prom, so the contestants on idol set up a little prom thing & he danced with Brooke :grin: He did say he knew who he was taking to the prom on one of those question thingy’s Ryan did before he sang, but because of AI, he didnt get to go. I remember the pic of him in the cook hat,lol.

  80. kimk says:

    Weiyan haha. ‏@weiyannn
    THE LITTLE GIRL WHO SAID NO IN SANTA ROSA YOU ARE FOREVER MY HERO K HAHAHAHAHAHA @davidarchie you gotta experience rejection once in a while

    :D

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

    kimk, lol. One of my favorite moments was, when little Ella, walked off the stage, David said wait, dont go,lol. After the song, it was so sweet, he went off stage & brought Ella back, for her applause :grin:

  82. kimk says:

    this fan is so funny.. great fan too!
    her tweets are quite entertaining!

    Weiyan haha. ‏@weiyannn
    @davidarchie i still wonder if you got your pants 3 sizes too small because srsly david what are you even wearing

    Weiyan haha. ‏@weiyannn
    @davidarchie i don’t ever want you to be valued less than what you are

    Weiyan haha. ‏@weiyannn
    @davidarchie for a moment i remembered how it felt like with you around.

    guess she was watching the concert video!!

  83. kimk says:

    Beth oh yes.. I remember thinking he will make the greatest dad!!
    ha the mistletoe one cracks me up too!!

    going to watch the video again!!

    http://youtu.be/39YQ2-qnpRo

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

    kimk, ROTFL, laughed so hard when he said “I dont think its active on stage though”, lol

  85. tami lyn says:

    this was from 2009 and i don’t even remember how i found it LOL! i was searching for something else and this page came up with this person who supposedly knows david answering a bunch of questions! like an idiot i clicked off it and now i have to see if i can find it again!

  86. lives to lurk (cindy) says:

    He did go the senior prom, but i think for seniors at his school they call it something else, maybe senior ball? and I remember he walked out for a bit when Crush started playing,lol.

  87. kimk says:

    ha.. but Crush is so good!
    he is too cute!

  88. lives to lurk (cindy) says:

    I remember that q and a, forgot about the rats and bugs part,lol. also remember there being some fanfiction after, where his love interests were named Scarlett or Savannah or Jade!

  89. tami lyn says:

    cindy~ yes that’s what “this supposed friend of his” called it. senior ball. he would not name the girl. lol

  90. tami lyn says:

    i think the guys name was huong or something like that.

  91. Beth< Kimk, there were some great moments with David and the children. Your right, he will make a great Dad. the mistletoe was was a cute one too. I guess he knows what tradition is for the mistletoe. LOL!

  92. Candy says:

    TO ALL THE MODS: I respect each of you and admire what you do for this site. I have said that over and over for the past four years, and I truly meant it. I do understand the time you selfishly give to run the site. I do hope you feel the love from the fans and it outweighs the occasional disagreement that arises.
    With that said…I find that while the sign on the door says “All fans welcome” for me it is no longer a place where I feel comfortable. Since David left on his mission I have found myself wanting to talk about things that help me feel closer to him, things that have been deemed taboo for the site, to view the occasional picture that pops up, talk about the concerts he is doing while away, a song he sang at a public devotional…the “warning” last night felt personal….sort of a form of censorship. So to no longer be your “problem child” I will say thank you for all you do and have done and will head to twitter.
    I will be more than happy to share with anyone in DM on twitter anything mission related that comes my way, my twitter name is CandyFOD, follow me and I will follow you back. Take care all, I wish each of you the best of everything this holiday season and all year through.

  96. sarahhazel says:

    Gonna do more voting.

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

    I agree with some of what Candy said. Although my appreciation for this fansite is beyond measure, I LOVE coming here & I respect the rules of the sight, posting links & all, the fact that we cant discuss what happened at a PUBLIC concert, I think, is unreasonable. This is a David fansite, we want to talk about David. We dont talk about specific mission info, we dont have him attached to GPS and follow his every move, we dont have someone following him, giving us info on everything he does. We do show David respect, we love him & want him to have the mission experience he wishes to have. From what I understand, the lady who went to the concert was invited to two more & that David knows her & is ok with here sharing details. I feel this should be allowed given its in regards to a PUBLIC concert. Its a shame that things have to be this way because of a couple of over zealous, maybe well-meaning people, who dont care about how their fellow fans feel, how David might really feel about it. Like Ray said, its a way for David to communicate with the fans without breaking any rules. Do people realize, that, David said he wanted to find ways to communicate with us & this is one way he can do it? She talked to David, he knows she will share info with us. I will respect the wishes of the mods on this site, even though I dont agree with all of the rules & I will not let it chase me away from this site. I understand Candys decision, but I hate it, I want her here on FOD. I’m asking you to come back Candy, at least once in a while, its not FOD without you. I will see you on twitter, but I’ll be here too.

  98. I think i will go vote too. BBL

    do love seeing him on the chart!! about dang time!!!

  100. Tracy says:

    It is a real shame this site is not how it used to be and therefore a lot of people have now left and I think for good.
    Kimk and Candy I think I follow you on twitter so please keep me informed everything David. My twitter name is Sweetcrushfod,…….I started out at this site under that name and had to change it due to all the problems it had with names and numbers.
    Thanks

  101. kimk says:

    tracy found you and dm’d you. lol I think!

    gosh love you all!!

  102. Tracy says:

    Thank you Kimk, Please bare with me, Im not to great on twitter,
    but I just want to say I am very thankyou to have virtually met a great bunch of people because of this site.

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

    I want to be clear, I LOVE everyone here who comments on FOD & Lurkers!!!!!!! Also, the threads the mods provide us to comment on, are SPECTACULAR!!! You ALL are appreciated, more than I can say.

  104. sarahhazel says:

    Still voting but I just wanna say, I agree with Beth. That’s all.
    Back to D duties.

  105. sarahhazel says:

    P.S. David, NA and TV5 are all #1 now…..Go Archies!

  106. lives to lurk (cindy) says:

    From what I’ve read, David and his mission know about Gladys and have read her recaps of his concerts, and have no problem with it. If David were to do a vlog talking about the concerts, would those few over zealous fans also refuse to watch that? I agree that David probably sees Gladys’ blogs as a way for him to connect with us. Sad about Candy.

  107. Beth, i love this site, i’m here to stay. Back to voting

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

    sarahhazel & Linda :grin: :grin:

    LivesTo Lurk, I agree. David knows all about it & is fine with it.

  109. lives to lurk (cindy) says:

    I mostly lurk, but I do love FOD and appreciate all the hard work that goes into making this great site.

  110. lani says:

    Thank you mods for everything you do. Greatly appreciated!! But this is a sad day :cry:

    Hope everything goes back to how it’s used to be. Will always be grateful for this site and all David fansites who are still active despite D being gone & I really hope that they will all be still around until 2014. Let’s all wait for David together please. Love you guys!

  111. sarahhazel says:

    OMJ….HYAMLC from Marcella’s vid is making me :cry:

  112. glitter*girl says:

    just in case anyone is interested there is a new david FB page called Elder Archuleta’s Supporters

  113. I have 30 more votes to go for my third time voting , BB

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

    glitter girl, thanks for the info, unfortunately, I dont have Facebook.

  115. angelbymyside says:

    I just find it sad that true fans who have always loved and respected David and have been here on FOD since day one of this site, are now choosing to go elsewhere where they can make a comment about David and his mission or look at a mission picture without feeling they are doing something wrong or are disrespecting him in some way! It’s sad to see what has been happening here lately! I will always continue to support David in all that he does and will be waiting for his return in 2014!

    Take care everyone! :)

  116. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–LOL…..not sure what happened there…..it’s like when he sang “Heaven” in Manila…..or maybe a momentary lapse of sanity…..haha…..thanks..

  117. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–thanks.

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

    Hey abms! You will still be coming here, wont you? Please!!!!

  120. tami lyn says:

  121. kimk says:

    Jeff LeBlanc ‏@jleblancmusic
    Big week ahead… 5 stops on the college tour and my cover of “This Christmas” hits iTunes tomorrow at midnight!

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

    kimk, I saw that tweet, interesting David sang This Christmas on the MKOCT, with Jeff as the opener, now he’s singing it for Itunes. He seems like a nice guy, wish him well, just wish it was Davids version :grin:

  123. lives to lurk (cindy) says:

    wonder if David still sleepwalks,sleeptalks,and sleepsings!

  124. lives to lurk (cindy) says:

    Wish it were David singing it on itunes,also,Beth. ) :

  125. Lives to lurk, i bet he still does sleepwalk sleeptalk & sleepsings. I’d give anything be there when he does :smile:

    Lives to Lurk :grin:

  130. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I have had a lot of time to think about this, more than some others because of the accusatory emails, mean tweets and other things. I will say that Kari FB messaged me wondering what was going on and I messaged her back. We sent a few messages back and forth. I choose not to share publicly what we discussed because I think she wouldn’t want me to. I will however say that our convo has shed light on things (though I hesitate to say what those things are. Any info she shared with me is up to her to share with the fan public).
    The biggest thing I see going on is a division of the fans, I know of fans who have left being a fan or are on the verge of doing so. I know of some other fans (from all over the world) besides me who are getting their feelings hurt from other fans. No matter what David meant in his blog, how we interpret it, or what was meant, we must all see that having this division, hate almost, is tearing his fan base apart. Kari is trying so hard to keep the fanbase happy and together. He still has 14 months left on his mission. I see the destruction, bullying, anger, manipulation and controlling ways along with the hurt it all causes. I believe that any MODS or creater of any website have the right to say how a site will be run though we may not agree with their rules. I even have rules on my FB groups, so I understand that. But what I don’t agree with is the method of how it’s done. Even the MODS should be careful about what they say as to not ostracize others. Because some might take what is said as being targeted or singled out by their warnings.
    I still see no problems with sharing info on a very public mission website. Heck I sometimes go there while I’m doing other things on the web (Girl Scout, genealogy, FB stuff etc.) just to listen to the pretty music Sister McArthur puts on the site. But I wouldn’t share anything (and have not, save one time with permission) from his family’s FB pages. This is what I was accused of. Being friends with Claudia (NOT!!!) and sharing private info she “emails” me about. I am not friends with her, met her only twice, don’t have her email, phone number, NOTHING. The person who emailed me claimed they knew first hand that I was friends with her and that David was not happy about it. So, with that, I posted everywhere thanking the rumor mill for the lies they just spread about me, being fearful that it did get back to David. I was among those just ready to leave the fanbase. Then after Kari’s email, and stepping back to look at things in perspective, I realize that whomever these people are may have been very well trying to do that, weed me out, weed out the undesirable fans who don’t comform to their beliefs. Well, I’m not going anywhere. I’m here to stay, come heck or high water. I will still post the video of the day here and non mission pics, and concert videos. But, I will limit from now on what I say and how often I’m here. I can completely understand Candy’s feelings and why her and anyone else would choose to leave this group. It has become part of the division I spoke of. Not healthy for the future sustainment of David’s fanbase AT ALL!!! We can conform with the rules, but please be careful what you say. Think before you click on “post comment”. There is more I would love to say. But I’ll stop there for now. If the MODS after this post wish me to leave and never return, I completely understand.

  131. kimk says:

    Shawna #DA2014 ‏@stidwell53
    My granddaughter just told me there’s a @DavidArchie decorated tree at “The Festival of Trees”…hmmmm, maybe I need to check this out:)

    need a pic!

  132. tami lyn says:

    i have felt for quite awhile now that some of the LDS fans would like to have david all to themselves. hope i’m just imagining that but kind of afraid it might be true :(

  133. Janel aka Nellie says:

    tami lyn I am LDS and I have never felt that. There are a lot of LDS fans who do not feel that way. The people who feel differently than I do, some are LDS, some are not. It isn’t an LDS thing, this fan possession thing that goes around. Or “more important fans” as some like to think they are.

  134. tami lyn says:

    oh janel i know u do not feel that way. i have never thought that about you :)

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

    Hey Janel! You didnt say anything wrong & I’m glad you’re staying here. I’m not letting anyone chase me out of here. I respect David totally & have done nothing wrong. I’m not going to let certain people dictate what I say, what I think. Well, except for following the rules here :grin:

    A request to the mods. I understand posting links, not their content, but cant we talk about a PUBLIC concert David performed at, getting info from someone, who David himself talked to, said was ok to share things? Please consider & if not, thats ok, just asking :grin:

  136. tami lyn says:

    i think maybe i started to get that feeling when david made his announcement in SLC. maybe he thought those were the only fans who would understand? not really sure what to think.

  137. tami lyn says:

    did gladys post a recap somewhere? i have not heard or seen anything.

  138. cq#DA2014 says:

    Oh no, so sad about Candy!!! Loved to read her comments. I sometimes feel like we have to be LDS in order to be a fan of David’s. That’s not going to happen for me, but I will always be a David fan. Right now I’m kinda disappointed with the whole sensorship thing.

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

    tami lyn, SLC is home, its obvious he was really concerned how the fans would react & when they cheered after his annoucement, he got very emotional, I think a big weight on his shoulders was lifted. Its understandable he would make the announcement at home, with family & friends nearby :grin:

  140. Janel aka Nellie says:

    tami lyn, Utah is home for him, and yes there are more people in Utah who are LDS too so there might be credence to what you say. He wanted to feel in a safe, familiar place to make his announcement.

  141. tami lyn says:

    beth~ yeah that’s what i’m talking about. he’s comfortable with his fame and fans in utah but maybe not the rest of it. the LDS fans have a special connection with him that the rest of us do not have :(

  142. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Just FYI too, I think only two Mods that I know of here (or at least on chat) are LDS. It really isn’t an LDS thing. So we shouldn’t start in on that either. I have no more “ownership” to David as a fan than anyone else.

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

    cq, I dont think being LDS has anything to do with any problems. Its a few fans who feel they know better than anyone else, how to be a good fan. Taking each word of every song from Begin & knowing what he meant by them. Its ok for them to feel the way they feel, but they have no right to make others feeling bad, if they dont follow. Sorry if anyone that comments here or lurks here feels differently, but wanting to hear about a public concert from someone who was there or seeing a pic once in a while is not being disrespectful to David. I wont apologize for wanting to seeing the occaisional pic or hearing about a concert, theres nothing wrong with it. I will, however, abide by the rules of this site.

  144. tami lyn says:

    janel~ if the division is not based on religion as u say, then what is this division based on? i don’t understand.

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

    tami lyn, thats not quite what I’m saying, I mean his being home, not because of anyone being LDS, Home is Home, special feeling. Its not like the audience was all LDS, lots of people in Utah arent LDS, but they’re fans of David. I dont think this is an LDS issue. I’m not comfortable with that thought.

  146. tami lyn says:

    beth~ yeah i’m not comfortable with that thought either.

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

    tami lyn, read my comment to cq at 10:12. Also, anything Janel wants to say, not trying to answer for her, just my thoughts.

  148. tami lyn says:

    beth~ so it’s about the concert?

  149. Janel aka Nellie says:

    It’s based on the interpretation of David’s video blog and people trying to comform others to believe as they do. And NO not all of them are LDS.

  150. muldur says:

    kim, thanks for the video link :)

  151. tami lyn says:

    ok janel, thanks. i think i get what u are trying to say. i think it would help if we got some more direct and frequent honest communication from kari so we know what we can and can’t do because this is all very confusing :(

  152. Dorothy says:

    Amen Janel. I was going to write something several paragraphs long, but I have to much apathy for this site it Owners, and Mods and those who tattle on any comments made. Sheesh what has happened to the FANs
    Most of you guys are wonderful and I do not direct my message to you. 99 percent of you are wonderful fans. But sadly there is a controlling (Volturi) like fraction of fans that feel it their place to kill joy.

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

    tami lyn, I meant I’m not comfortable with people thinking that. I’m letting this go. Hey, saw you’re new avi on twitter, David with Santa, cute pic :grin:

  154. breanne says:

    FOD Moderators, just want you to know I appreciate all the great posts you provide for us everyday!!! :) You are all AMAZING and I want to thank you for all of the wonderful pics, vids, information, etc. you provide everyday! :)

  155. Anita says:

    I hope everyone had a good Sunday! Thanks Joanie for the post. David can sure sing the daylights out of CEM, can’t he?!! My absolute favorite video is the very first Westbury one from 8throwcenter, with the SLC one in 2nd for me. The audio from Westbury is so clear, and David’s vocals are sooo jaw dropping! I can’t even…….GAH!!!!!!!

  156. bds says:

    I haven’t been here for awhile but decided to come in and lurk tonight. I just wanted to say that I am LDS and I don’t agree with the strict rules here but do respect them. In fact, when David announced his mission I thought the Church would want him to share his mission expereinces on blogs for public relations in order to help people understand the church. I then read what happened in the MTC and read comments that were posted and I realized there are people who don’t like David, both LDS and Non LDS and they would turn this kind of thing against him. I do believe though if he is appearing at a public event on his mission, people should be able to discuss it. I think The Voice will print something in the future about you know what.

  157. muldur says:

    Just putting my thanks in to the mods here who have done an amazing job for years and continue to do that everyday. Thank you :)

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

    Hey Anita! I agree, CEM is spectacular, what a voice :grin:

    Hey Dorothy! I think FOD is trying to be accomodating to all, its just frustrating that a few can regulate what so many do. I will abide by this sites wishes & I’m not going anywhere, I’m so grateful for FOD, I will however do what I want, say what I want elsewhere :grin:

  159. kimk says:

    muldur lol still to this day I think of him as a living one of those. cutest thing ever.
    funny thing though that song really means so much.. in all it’s cheese.

  160. kimk says:

    oops.. if I was to edit would of put its not it’s.
    my bad.

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

    Hey Mulder! They do spoil us with great threads to comment on & we are beyond grateful, just a bit frustrated :grin:

  162. tami lyn, human nature…it’s the stuff that goes on in the school yard, in our families, in the work place…”Everyone Wants to Rule the World.” It’s also a bit like the Wizard of Oz. No one knew what he looked like, Dorothy and her friends built up his reputation as a know it all and they were even frightened to meet him. He turned out to be nothing special. Maybe the Mods should revisit the rules, after all, if government can tweak the rules I can’t see why clear the cobwebs and discover what the real situation is. There’s more to this problem than meets the eye. Let me clarify…I love this site and the Mods but just wanted to share my views…thanks!!!

  163. Dorothy says:

    NOPE I am LDS and I am absolutely furious about the behavior of CERTAIN SPECIAL FANS. I will not say what I was going to say, because it its very SNARKY
    But please don’t blame this riff on David’s religioin. It has nothing to do with it. Many of the most vocal oppposers are not LDS and even make mean mean comments about LDS. GUYS lets not trash each others religion I respect everyones religion. Please respect Davids religion. PLEASE I beg you in tears don’t be like the fans that we are jumpy about, trashing any religion Christian, Islam, Jewish, Buddist. is just WRONG PLEASE PLEASE STOP. But sharing the goodness of David and what his is doing is a blessing. Even what we glean from him on his mission. It is a blessing. lets all please PLEASE come together. I am watching a show about how the song Silent Night came about. Let’s not defile that beauty. David love his chosen religion, David loves his Savior.

  164. tami lyn says:

    who are these “certain special fans”?? i have no idea who these people are or what they are trying to do. are these people on twitter or FB or where?

  165. Grannycrush says:

    I, too, would like to thank everyone who keeps this site up and running and gives us so much to look at and listen to daily. It is a thankless job, I know, and I appreciate how hard it is to keep everyone happy. I am just happy with what we are given each day, and, although, I love hearing about all things David, I respect the rights of the FOD staff to make the decisions on what they want to have on this site.
    It would be so sad for a few fans to derail David’s career by constantly beating a dead horse. We are all adults here and should be able to “live” together and respect each others opinions.

  166. Elise says:

    I am hopeful that the fan base can try to stay together for when David returns

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

  168. josie says:

    Hm. Maybe I’m glad I was gone this weekend, lol.

  169. 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.

    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.

  170. Anita says:

    Candy-Please come back soon! You are so appreciated and well liked on this site. You have shown so well your love and admiration for David, and you bring such an awesome sense of humor that I think is helpful to so many of us. Especially during this time of year when we are missing David so very much!

  171. nora says:

    tamilyn-what division are you talking about? I don’t understand.

  172. tami lyn says:

    nora~ i don’t know. i don’t understand either :(

  173. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Wow, don’t know what to say, I am sad and confused all at once. So here goes:

    I have been a fan of David and this site since day one. Yes, I have a life, a very good life, but FOD is one of the things that helps me during my stressful days. I come here EVERYDAY, several times a day. Candy, you are one of the people I always look forward to hearing from. I always find your posts funny, interesting and yes sometimes questionable. But, that is what this makes this site interesting. If we all have the same things to say, it would not make it as interesting and entertaining. From your diet coke explosions through your nose, to bringing out your cheerleader outfit for the Duffy’s Hope basketball game, you ALWAYS make me laugh. I loved to wipe away the tears from my face laughing at some of your comments. In today’s world, we need to wipe away some tears, and spewed coke from the laptop. I am begging you, please come back.

    I was not going to tell anyone about a dream I had Wednesday night, because I was not sure what it meant. Some may question me, but believe me this did happen:

    I was sitting in a large room with a group of close friends. Even though I knew all of them, their faces were blurry. There was a speaker on stage and we were listening to what he was saying, even though it was muffled. We were not sure what to think about the speech. It was really puzzling to us. It sounded like the “you gotta believe” type speech. We did not know how to act towards the message. All of a sudden another person came on stage and was saying something completely different from the first speaker. Like I said, it was muffled, but I knew it was different. Then, as a group we had to decide which speaker to follow. We didn’t know what to do. Then, all of a sudden, I felt this soft, but firm, sweaty hand take mine and pulled me to my feet. It was David. (Believe me, I could feel his hand as if he was standing right beside me in real life.) I looked at David and he smiled. He nor I said anything, but he just looked in my eyes and I and everyone else followed him out the door.

  174. tami lyn says:

    nora~ i thought it was an LDS thing but apparently it’s not.

  175. Anita says:

    Beth-I’ve been thinking about David’s Public concerts he’s put on during his mission today, and I feel the same way as you! Since those are PUBLIC, I really don’t feel it’s wrong to talk about them. At the same time, I appreciate all FOD has provided us, and am sooo grateful to them beyond words!! Have a good night Beth!

  176. josie says:

    This all has nothing to do with me, so I am staying out of it. :)
    I saw that y’all were talking about “Sarah the Stalker”…She was a guest on one of the morning shows about a year ago. Her dad is able to get her into celebrity events (he must have connections somehow), & her main goal in life is getting as many photo ops as possible. She said she always respects the celebs’ privacy, so none of them mind. But anyway…

  177. kimk says:

    no idea what is going on.. except to think it has something to do with we all miss David so much it hurts.

    http://youtu.be/–tEcQ_EmJs

    think this was the first time I thought to myself.. wow what a nice and special young man he is.
    liked him right from the start but there was just something with this that said..
    dang I really like him and who he is!

  178. Patty-Ann says:

    ATX
    I loved your dream and think it’s a sign. To follow David and not pay attention to all the chaos, muffled noise, and chatter. Sort of like the song I Need a Silent Night.

  179. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Patty-Ann,
    Yep, that is what I am thinking. Either way, I will always choose to follow David. I am a better person with him and FOD in my life.

    BTW, LOVE all your videos, pictures, etc,

  180. nora says:

    kimk-that was just great,just what I needed, David wouldn’t be put in the middle, and neither will I. I am here to stay and here to stay for David until 2014. I will be a fan of his no matter what.

  181. josie says:

    Hm. I think my first sentence sounded selfish…Guess I’ve never been invested to the point that I need to know all the songs that he sings, & I’ve never really wanted to know what he’s doing in Chile. Guess that’s what I meant to say. Sorry that peeps are getting hurt, though. :(

  182. kimk says:

    ha Candy and angel are so much fun.
    can think of only a few times I have laughed so much
    and about something really dumb.
    I will call him Ron.

  183. kimk says:

    yikes it is 11:30!

    goodnight guys pleasant dreams!!

  184. josie says:

    Still love him a lot, though. That’ll never change. ‘Night, kimk.

  185. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Kimk,
    Do us all a favor when you get up in the morning: tweet our friends ABMS and Candy and tell them to get their booties back here!

    Night all.

  186. nora says:

    goodnight all, hopefully we’ll all be back tomorrow, I know I will. Love David too much to leave now. Thanks FOD for all your hard work and all you do, much appreciated.

  187. Goodnight to my favorite home away from home.. I love all my FOD family,Yes Candy i love you too. Hope you will think about it more clearly and come back to us. After all tomorrow is another day.

    For myself, i am here to stay, i want to be here with all of you when David comes home.
    God willing. Sweet David dreams to all of you.

  188. Lucy says:

    Hey everyone, I’m sorry to hear of the conflict here, I love FOD and all u guys and I hope that we can all come to a happy medium. I would hate for this site to close because of this conflict, I personally like to hear about missionary stuff, it makes me feel better about David’s well being. This is the only site that I come to most of the time and I will continue to for as long as I can, don’t know if I can ask this but what site can I visit that does post mission info in case I’d like to check? I do respect the rules of this website and all the work that the writers put in for us and I do hope that some of u still post links from time to time. Nite all:)

    Wow the dead horse is back again. Candy and Ray, please come back when you are ready. This fan site isn’t the same without your comments. I’m just a daily lurker but I do appreciate this fan site and all the hard work that the mods put into it. Plus there are tons of other wonderful David fan sites that we can go to and discuss all things David. :) I respect the rules at FOD since that is what works for them here. No one is going to stop me from being a fan or tell me how to be a fan. Sometimes we take things too seriously and I am guilty of that myself. So what I am trying to say is just take a step back and think about why we are here. We are fans of David, simple as that. :) We love that young man and we want to support him.

    Hmmmm….just a crazy suggestion for this site. Maybe we can have a link at the top to an alternative link where we can post anything we want about mission stuff and the people that don’t care to view it will never have to go to that link. We won’t need any warning signs or anything. j/k Ok that sounded better in my head. lols….That will be too secret society. hahah……

    Oh heck I may have to create my own David fan site for the US fans so we can talk about whatever we want for the next 14 months until David is home. :) I use to have a site for another idol. But do I have the time to run a site? lols……Anyway thank you FOD for all you do. I wish we would all get over this and just wait for David to come home in peace. Love you are and have a great week. Don’t worry about anything everything will work out in the long run. Trust the Archuleta!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ATX I like your dream. As for everyone else, I’m sorry to get the dead horse issue out again. I think I stirred up unnecessary feelings in others. What I said is just something I’ve been thinking about ever since that accusatory email was sent to me. Kind of bottling it up inside. Have a good night everyone. I’ll be back to post a couple things, but not as often. Not anything against the MODs or the rules, it’s just something I thought I should do anyways. I think I have a target on my back when it comes to some fans scolding or harrassing me. I wish to deminish the target.

    Hey y’all! Haven’t been here in a while. Thought I’d stop in for a minute. :)

    Hello, my very favorite folks here at FOD. This is one fan that is not going anywhere. I love to come to this site, although I don’t comment very often, I love the dedication and devotion of all of the MOD’s. It is not easy trying to keep everyone happy. It really saddens me and I think David woud be very sad as well. He respects everyone’s religious beliefs and it is so sad to make this an LDS thing. I really think he would be so upset to see all of this. As far as David making his announcement in SLC , HELLO,of course he would make it there. This is his home, his family was all there to support him and he needed that support that night. He had no idea how folks were going to react and I sure it was a worry to him. Please lets put this to rest once and for all and just get back to being the best fanbase ever. David we love you and this old granny will be on FOD and waiting for you in 2014. Keep up the great work guys. <3

    I don’t comment very often because it’s hard for me to express myself with words. I have come to FOD for the past four years, usually lurking. I come here and it makes me happy, this is my David place. Candy and abms it will make me really sad not to see you here anymore. When I think of FOD you are such a big part of it, it will not be the same. We all are here for the same reason. We All love and care for David.

    dailyworker great idea about having a place to go to hear abou David’s mission stuff. I o think that the majority of us do want to hear ow he is doing from time to time.

  196. Rich says:

    Wow… Been reading through some of the comments. I guess we’re not perfect, are we? Maybe someday.

    The David Chronicles has a nice thread which is updated, just on mission info (go to archives, March 2012), but not much discussion. The Voice doesn’t censor and has the latest mission info. Soul David has frank discussions on many topics, but doesn’t focus very much on the mission. They all have links to other sites, which I very much appreciate. Snowangelz is great, and often very funny.

  198. cc halo says:

    P.S. I like to use SD’s link to FOD because it’s easier to find the end of the thread and the start of the comments.

    I’m grateful that I understand that to be offended is a choice. So is forgiving someone.

    In all of my years, I have been called nasty things, been the subject of many rumors, and been told numerous times that my music is no good. But, I have never let anything that anyone has ever said about me affect the way I feel about myself. I’ve had to learn to let things roll off my back. When I’ve looked deep inside each situation, what I’ve realized, regardless of what was going on, was that my level of love towards each person has never changed. Never.

    I am continually amazed and impressed with everyone who contributes here. It has taken everyone to create the community that it is. Thank you, each and every one of you, for being a part of that. I look forward to all the great times that lie ahead!
