Hottest Single Today

David Archuleta was nominated for 2 awards! Hottest LOVE Song and MALE Song Forevermore!   Click to go!

HOTTEST SINGLE TODAY Music Award 2013: David Archuleta Nominated for 2 Awards for HOTTEST LOVE SONG OF THE YEAR “Forevermore” and HOTTEST MALE SONG OF THE YEAR “Forevermore”

How cool!  Good luck David!

* * * * *

It’s our Birthday

On Twitter, anyway lol.  We got a little late start on Twitter since BeckyFOD and JennyFOD were two on the first fans on the social medium, and they started to tweet out the news themselves.  When FOD on twitter was born, the baton was passed on to the official handle!

This sounds like a good excuse for cake, right?  BTW, in Spanish, cake is “pastel”.  Even more reason to celebrate!

* * * * *

www.fansofdavid.com and Facebook

We have had questions as to why FOD is starting a facebook page.  We have had a Facebook “Group” page for quite a while, actually, so this isn’t new.  Our group page is Official FansofDavid Facebook Group.

People use different social media and FB is another fun way to share the artistry with all of you.  Thanks a TON to David from Texas for all his work in keeping it up to date!   If you haven’t friended us yet, please do!

 Today’s Poll ~ Riu Riu Chiu!

I had to check twice to see if David sang this during MKOC tour (I know, my bad :( )  But I think some of the most moving vids are from 2009, but he turns up the power a notch in 2011.  What do you think?

Regardless, you’ll love these!  Please vote!

#1:  Cleveland Dec 12, 2009  8throwcenter.  Nice intro.  Loves to mention his Latin roots!  THE ENDING!!!!!!  The lighting and audio is amazing here!  I mean, UNREAL!

#2:  Blackfoot, ID 12-9-11 frejul10.  MKOC tour.  VERY powerful.  Command and control here!

#3  Baltimore 8throwcenter.  Goodness, the build-up here.  David is stompin’ it out on the stage.  Intense stuff!

#4 MGM Grand Foxwoods~ 12-17-2009  djbell13.  Check out the hand!  Very expressive!   What an ending.

#5  Verona, 8throwcenter.  Great venue, stage presence.  David looked and sounded spot on that night!

Three Years Ago ~ Waukegan!

Waukegan Michigan CFTH concert occured 3 years ago.  Lets celebrate by watching a few slideshows, shall we?

  1. granny Lyn from South Africa says:

    happy birthday FOD hope you continue for many many years to come
    Thanks Pastel for a super post, always so much to go through
    I became a friend on face book yesterday and this morning when I opened facebook I couldn’t believe how many entries there were from FOD
    Love to all the Phillopino fans with all the natural disasters that they are having. We will keep you close in prayer and love.
    I have been silent the past few days as my very dear aunt of 88 years passed away on the 29th Nov. She was very special to me as we had often crafted together over the years and had lovely long chats over cups of tea. She unfortunately developed breast cancer some time back but it came back with a vengance in about June and she slowly deteriated and in the past weeks hardly ever was awake when I visited her. It was sad to see such a vibrant, busy lady just lying there hardly responding. Yesterday they had a memorial service for her which was very sad but very special. Next year I will scrapbook her life as far as I am able as a special tribute to a wonderful lady

    Granny Lyn, my sympathies goes out to you.

  19. Pastel says:

    So sorry to hear about your Aunt, Lyn.

    I love the idea of a scrapbook. What a great way to honour her life.

  20. Good morning everyone.

    grannyj, my condolences for your aunts passing. May she be in peace with the Lord.

    Nice post Pastel- Good luck David in you 2 nominations.

    I have work today, so i will go do my voting before i leave, i will be lurking while i’m preparing for work.

    Can’t decide which RRC i want to vote on, so will wait till i get home from work to vote.

  21. kimk says:

    good morning folks!

    Granny Lyn aww so sorry for your loss.

    Pastel thank you!!!

    sarahhazel lol David vs Ed is so unfair! both are fabulous and well Ed is so the rage right now! he is the next Jason Mraz or John Mayer!
    darn.. hoping when David comes back they can do a collab!!!

  22. kimk says:

    Warning Mission Vid!!!

  23. kimk says:

    oh my gosh! he is still as cute as a button!!!!

  24. Pastel says:

    Sarahhazel, the poll has been expanded! Vote away!

  25. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Seemed appropriate to have the video of the day from 200 favorite performances be Los Pastores a Belen from MOTABS 2010
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ya053-JPrQ8

  26. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–OMJJJJJ!…..think he’s a lot cuter now…I am handsome-rrrr now…..aaaaHHH!

    (I see he’s still got the divo hand….a la Motab perf!) :)

  27. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I’ve decided….I’m not voting on the Q102 poll.

  28. sarahhazel says:

    Pastel–thanks again! :)

  29. Philly Fan says:

    Thanks for posting the vid Kimk @10:42am it is very crystal clear and David sounds great. Gotta say that David is looking mighty fine and cut in that suit even with his hair so short. There was some talk awhile back about David putting on weight but based on those photo’s he looks amazing very mature and handsome and content/happy. Also I can’t believe that Q102 philly poll has David on again even though I’m sure they know he is away I guess it’s all about hits to their site because they never play his music. But he did appear @ their Jingle Ball/Bash awhile ago and he was amazing. I wish we can get a clear version of the “Prayer” like the one posted.

  30. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–wow, watching that MoTab LPDB…..seemed his voice did get deeper…& the Spanish has obviously improved a lot…..and….he looks more mature….OMJ….is it 2014 yet???!

  31. Kimk, Sarahhazel, agree he is still as cute as a button, and handsome too if its possible to be both.

    Have to get ready now, i voted and i just had to hear MY PRAYER and OHN one more time before i go to work. See you guys tonight, have a great day. (( Later Gators )).

  32. sarahhazel says:

    Have a good one, Linda!

  33. kimk says:

    sarahhazel yup. sure is a LOT more of everything!

    voting on the poll.. lol if I see it will vote but sure not going after the Ed fans.. umm a ton of Archies like him too. like me!

  34. meganloves2lol says:

    i was at the waukegan illinois show!!! i miss that day soooo much! i miss that wonderful boy so much. i was the 33rd row and a sweet friend gave me a 10th row seat!

  35. sarahhazel says:

    Philly Fan–I’d love to see a clearer TP vid too….I’m sure we could hear David’s voice better there.

  36. sarahhazel says:

    Weiyan haha. ‏@weiyannn

    don’t understand why i always do NOTHING from 10pm-12am, and then watch @davidarchie videos from 12am-idekam. WHY WEIYAN, WHY.

  37. Sirinity Dorrell says:

    Happy 3rd Birthday FOD. Wow I can’t believe FOD had been around for 4 years.

  38. cq#DA2014 says:

    Yes,I agree from the video @10:42 David is looking mighty fine. That haircut has to go, but otherwise, in fine fiscal shape.

  39. granny Lyn from South Africa says:

    thanks so much for your words of condolences for my very special aunt-sarahhazel, cq,vabeach,pastel,linda, kimk and others.
    Pastel, making a scrapbook helped so much after my mum passed away some years ago, so I am sure it will also help me move forward, as well as honour such a special person as my aunt was.
    take care everyone and thanks for your support xxx

  41. sarahhazel says:

    granny Lyn–A scrapbook is a wonderful tribute to your late aunt….I’m sure she is smiling now…..Take care!

  42. kimk says:

    cq lol the doo.. was thinking when he got back maybe something like the guy that is with Libbie that David tweeted?
    pretty cool.. edgy!

  43. Suttygal (Joanie MN) says:

    Morning all!
    Thanks for the great post ML!! Love the cow!!! The Riu Riu Chiu vids are all so good and the slideshows bring back great memories! I selfishly had to add my “choice city” for MKOCFTH on fb as St Paul, MN. It was our CFTH concert city that was cancelled due to driving weather for the bus.

    Lyn : I just read about your loss and I’m so very sorry. :( She sounds like she was an amazing Aunt who loved spending time with her niece! The scrapbook is a lovely idea. Would love to see a pic or two sometime if you’d ever like to share. <3 It sounds like it's been a tough yr for you losing 2 wonderful women in your family. I really miss my mom too. The memories we have are a great comfort! (((hugs)))

  44. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, had to check out the doo on that Libbie video, hahahaha..really don’t like that one either, at least it is edgy, but we have to wait and see what David will do with his doo when he returns, lol.
    Btw, I’m just curious…Is Kari Mormon?

  45. kimk says:

    cq don’t think so? ha well he sure would get noticed with that one. besides would love to read all the flip out comments when folks see him.
    ohh him being home.. gosh that sounds wonderful!!

  46. sarahhazel says:

    Crush Kids’ Cancer ‏@TheKidsChapter

    Be a part of our David Archuleta Christmas/Birthday Project – just 3 weeks left! http://www.thekidschapter.org/2012/11/our-david-archuleta-christmasbirthday.html

  47. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY FOD! where’s my manners? Sorry I took so long to come over & say CONGRATS on three wonderful years! You guys are great ~ thanks for all you do… hope you know how much it means to the fans! ♥

  48. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–so nice to think of his homecoming even tho’ it’s still more than a yr from now….gosh, I’m sure he will have a really big welcome in Asia….wonder what it’s gonna be like here?….he’ll probably would want a low-key arrival?….would be great if there is also a big welcome by US fans…

  49. Suttygal (Joanie MN) says:

    Thanks so much, MaryLee! I think it’s our 3rd “Twitter BDay’” :) The FOD site is getting old…already 4! :wink:

  50. granny Lyn from South Africa says:

    thanks for your kind words Joanie — no, only lost my aunt this year my mum passed a few years ago.
    Actually Ialso lost two cousins and my husband lost his brother this year so it has been a sad family time this year. But one has to move on, albeit slowly.
    My son and family are visiting from Johannesburg next week so we will have fun family time over Christmas.
    Next year when things have quietened down after the holidays I will slowly start reminiscing and scrapping a wonderful lady.
    thank you so much to all of you for your kind words. I knew the FOD was going to be a good place to be and it has xxx

  51. cq#DA2014 says:

    SIGH!! yes, Kimk and Sarahazel celebrating his homecoming…I sure hope there will be a big group of fans to welcome him home, eventhough he won’t be able to talk to them until later after, family, friends and decomposing. I just want him to feel the love and know that his fans welcome him back with open arms.

  52. sarahhazel says:

    cq–In the Philippines….they would wait from the wee hours in the morning at the airport to welcome him….banners and all….to get a glimpse, a wave, a smile…..even for a few minutes only…..wish it’s like that here…..I’m sure he’ll appreciate it much.

  53. nora says:

    sarahhazel-I’m not voting on q102 poll either, they don’t play his music, so why vote, there are other things to vote on that mean more. What a great Christmas present we have gotten a message from him and all those beautiful videos from Chile devotional. No one does Christmas music like David. OHN too beautiful for words, and the Prayer made me cry, can’t wait to see what we get when he returns in 2014. So glad to be a fan of his, we sure are lucky.
    On another note still haven’t received my FEE, now it will probably get mixed up with the Christmas mail!!
    granny lyn-so sorry to hear of your dear Aunt passing, losing someone is never easy, my thoughts are with you.

  54. gosh says:

    hope davey doesn’t decompose!!

  55. cq#DA2014 says:

    Gosh, lol maybe decompose might not be the right word, it’s decompress maybe, yeah that’s it, hahaha!!!

  56. sarahhazel says:

    gosh–LOL

  57. sarahhazel says:

    nora–oh, no…still no FEE for you….hope it comes before Christmas!

    ha what?!

  60. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Isn’t it interesting that when we see a group pic with David in it our eyes automatically gravitate toward him in the photo? He has magnetism!! :)

  61. breanne says:

    Thanks for the post Pastel!!

    granny Lyn, sorry to hear about your Aunt!! I hate cancer! My sister & I both had breast cancer and my dad had non-hodgkins lymphoma.

    Everybody Hurts is #8 on MYXPH:

    http://bit.ly/tcLzUl

    LOVE all the vids & pics from David’s performance the other night. He looks so happy and sounds AMAZING!!! So proud of him. Have read a couple of comments on twitter that he looks chubby and I can’t believe how shallow people are. He looks great!! :)

  63. kimk says:

    Janel yes!!

  64. cq#DA2014 says:

    Breanne, for the most part, fans tend to pick on everything about there celebrities, David, I guess is no different…it’s the haircut that makes him seem that way. If these fans would really look, his body is very slim and filling out that suit very nicely.

  65. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–that’ true…he stands out…umm…and almost always, easily the most handsome one in a group pic?….yep, I do compare….haha….. ;)

  66. sarahhazel says:

    Trevor N. Teuscher ‏@trevorteusc

    I’m listening to “What Child Is This” by David Archuleta on iTunes.

  67. kimk says:

    breanne umm a couple of months back he did? now he looks lol well man’d up!!
    bulked out.. mature.. tan and gorgeous!!
    lol yes folks are shallow.
    look at all the fuss with JB and 1D.
    reason the girls like them is cause they are cute.
    and yes a lot of folks like David for the most part cause he is cute.
    a good looking slim person gives image of being healthy and desirable.
    if you think about it being overweight is not healthy no matter what way you look at it.

  68. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–I’m with ya on that….not playing the Q102 “game”….LOL….not giving them the hits!

  69. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Great post Pastel. Love every RRC. It is so lively and he sings it magnificently.

    granny Lyn, so sorry for the loss of your dear Aunt. May she rest in peace with the Lord.

    Congrats FOD on your 3yr. anniversary on Twitter.

  70. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–noticed that too….slimmed down, tanned and more handsome (if that’s possible)

  71. kimk says:

    the suit he is wearing is on the large side for him but I suppose that is a good thing?
    lol
    can’t cause a ruckus knocking on doors and such.

  72. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Janel and kimk :grin: :grin:

  73. kimk says:

    sarahhazel wasn’t sure what to expect but what I see and hear is a fine young man who has matured in looks and voice yet still the same with his boyish charm.
    the half smile when he is not sure of the words in The Prayer.. the way he looks at the dancing girls.. his moves.
    he just is the cat’s meow way I see it.
    happy clam here and so gosh darn thankful we got all this!

  77. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    breanne, Hope your feeling better. I voted on the Q102 poll today. I went to both MSG JJ and Philly-Camden JJ and out of all the stars, people were crazy for David.So I know he was the best. You and sarahhazel are right though. It really isn’t worth it to vote because it only benefits the advertisers. Like I said the audiences that attended those JJ’s know David was the best.

  78. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I noticed the choir girls kept glancing at him with a cute smile on their faces….Can’t blame them….he is way too charming!

    supergrand–I want his name out there but I’m done with Q102….they’ve used D’s name and the Archies for so long now…..but it’s still up to folks if they want to!

  81. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ha trying to behave here.. he is cute no matter what he does.
    but a sweet missionary pop star with the voice of an angel from the US?!! umm.. are you kidding!!?

  82. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kimk- HaHaHa You have expressed my sentiments exactly how I feel about our singing, traveling man. He keeps getting better and betterer!! :smile: Don’t want to slay people when they answer the door!

  83. kimk says:

    yo!
    that Q102 Philly poll is almost tied!

    http://www.q102.com/pages/jb-brackets/2012/

  84. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–well, I guess “charming” is a grand understatement then….LOL…..

  85. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ha he’d be running from more then pups thru the streets if he was looking too good!

  86. kimk says:

    David Archuleta = Prince Charming!!

  87. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel. I noticed the choir girls eyes too. If I was there age and saw and heard David sing, I would fall in love instantly. Who could not? His voice alone knocks you for a loop. Wonder how many proposals he’ll get when he returns!! :roll:

  88. sarahhazel says:

    where did that *are* come from?……

  89. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–heard there’s a very loooooonnngggg list of Mrs. Archuleta hopefuls in Utah alone…..LOL…..

  90. sarahhazel says:

    Exhibit A ;)

    Lexie Dansie ‏@ljdansie

    My mom asked me if I thought I would find my husband on my mission. I replied, “Yes, because I’m going to David Archuleta’s mission.”

  91. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    * their* not there. sarahhazel , David will need people to interview all the girls who want to marry him. Maybe they’ll have a meet and greet proposal line.

  92. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel- Forgot to mention that they would help choose and then the final approval will come from all the FOD fans finally. :wink:

  93. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–LOL….a M&G proposal line?!!…..imagine a stadium full of young ladies…..it will take days to finish…..poor David!

  94. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–On the FOD approval board…..I pass on that one…..don’t wanna take the blame if it doesn’t work out….haha!

  95. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sarah, then he’d never get married if he waited for fans to approve. LOL

  96. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Judie, a speed dating with David event. It would be a several day event even with each date going faster. I think David would pass on the idea. LOL

  97. sarahhazel says:

    kimk—that’s the problem….no matter what….messy/short/too long/etc hair, scruffy face, wrong outfit, etc….he’s still a Prince Charming….he’s just got IT!

  98. sarahhazel says:

    Janel @4:57–very good point there!

  99. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sarah, Kimk, Judie, on Fod someone mentioned that he was a little chunky in the cheeks and was being fed well. Someone else said he looked perfect filled in a little. It reminded me of Mary Poppins measuring stick, Practically perfect in every way! David would measure up!

  100. Janel aka Nellie says:

    oops, I meant on facebook, not FOD. duh!

  101. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Janel :smile:

  102. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    BBL Have to make dinner.

  103. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–yes, he is practically perfect in every way!

  104. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    ..oops! Thanks for setting me straight Joanie! lol I should have known it wasn’t FOD’s 3rd Birthday since I was here at day one! Nevertheless, the CONGRATS & THANKS for all you guys do still stand :)

  105. sarahhazel says:

    So happy MoTab have D’s Silent Night now!!! The best ever version in the planet!!!

    Ohhh Myy I just watched the Verona MKOCT RRC. I got the chills. David’s performance was equal to the great masters of song that I have ever heard. That was Metropolitan diva musicality. I’m saying WOW I love it. I was at two MKOCT concerts and am so used to David’s perfection, that this video reminded me of what a great virtuoso David is. Geez I love that guy!

  109. kimk says:

    sarahhazel standing O? you mean Silent Night?

  110. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–yeah!

  111. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–that RRC is my fave!

    VIDEO: David Archuleta sings at Chilean Christmas pageant: A YouTube video of David Archuleta singing at a Chris… http://bit.ly/S6X4Rl

  113. sarahhazel says:

    Random: Bruno Mars is having a free online concert tonight…..Would love to see David do that when he promotes his new album!

  114. glitter*girl says:

    OMG IT FINALLY HAPPENED! i was in bath and body works and looking at the new candles and i hear a familiar voice, so i turned to my friend and said~ omg that’s david archuleta!!! they are playing his christmas song! it took all my self control not to jump around and squeal/spazz!!! lol! my friend was like~ sshhh! please don’t embarass me! LOL! i had heard about other people hearing david’s song being played in a store and was so happy it finally happened to me! :)

  115. Hi! everyone, i’m home from work, I see i missed a lot of spazzing and goodies.
    FOD, Happy 3rd anniversary on twitter.
    I need to go catch up on my voting, i’m off tomorrow, so i will have a lot of time to catch up on polls, but will vote tonight too.
    How is everyone? At work all day i kept hearing David sing MY PRAYER and OHN in my head, couldn’t get them off my mind..

  116. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–that’s wonderful!….we don’t really hear his music on the radio so it’s hard not to spazz in that “once-in-a-blue-moon” moment!

  117. TGRArchie (tonette913) says:

    Hello to all! I found this post in Facebook and it reminded me of David and his situation (but I guess a lot of things remind me of David always! lol) Just want to share this story with you all (sorry if it’s a little long):
    A well-known speaker started off his seminar holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?” Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, “Who still wants it…?” Still the hands were up in the air. “Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. “Now, who still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air. “My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We may feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE. You are special-Don’t EVER forget it.” If you do not pass this on, you may never know the lives it touches, the hurting hearts it speaks to, or the hope that it may bring. Count your blessings, not your problems.

    I love the line “you are still priceless to those who love you”. That’s how I feel about David. He will always be “priceless” to us! (“,)

  118. sarahhazel says:

    TGR–I love it!!!….thanks!!!

  119. kimk says:

    glittergirl fabulous!! his songs should be all over!

    sarahhazel Bruno got it going on, is all over the place and very interactive and creative with his fans. think his new cd is #1 right now. would
    be fabs if David does any of what he does come 2014.

  120. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–that’s a great formula–current-sounding (with the music), creative and interactive (with promoting)!

  121. glitter*girl says:

    kim and sarah~ :) good thing i didn’t have alot of money with me cuz i think i would have spent it all just to thank them for playing david’s song~ melodies of christmas! lol :)

  122. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    glitter*girl That is so cool. I spazzed in Wegman’s grocery store. It is so good to hear him in stores.I heard him in Perkins when I was with my grandson. David’s voice was playing faintly but I recognized him. My grandson was like what, who. I said out loud It’s David, I know it’s David. The waitress just smiled. Probably thought the old lady has gone off her rocker.

  123. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    TGRArchie(tonette913) I love the story. A good moral to remember. Thanks

  124. josie says:

    I love that, TGR. Unconditional love. :) …Aw, Becky & Jenny. I wonder what ever happened to them. :(

  125. kimk says:

    oh my that Silent Night is perfection!!
    perfect timing to release it now!!
    feels like Christmas around here!!

  126. kimk says:

    miss Jenny and Becky.
    hope they are ok.
    hope they still like David.

  127. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi josie :smile:

  128. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–LOL…another symptom of ODD….impulsive shopping upon hearing David’s music in stores!

  129. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–yes, perfect timing….like holiday promo!….what an epic performance!

    (oh yeah, where’s Jenny and Becky?….are they still part of FOD???…inquiring Archuminds wanna know!)

  130. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–the one who posted that nice story @7:12!

  131. sarahhazel says:

    Wowie, can’t believe I got 300 votes in at Musiqtone! :D

  132. josie says:

    Hi, sgj. *waves* ): kimk~ Yeah. :(

  133. kimk says:

    JB’s M&G costs $650. lol it is WWTT because the kids can’t afford them.
    price of fame and being a fan.
    $100 or so doesn’t seem too bad considering David is worth every penny and more!

  134. Thanks Sarahhazel, i am so far behind everything today. I just voted my second 100 votes and voted on all the other polls.

  135. Fiona says:

    Granny Lynn, so sorry about your aunt. It’s s wonderful idea to make a scrapbook of her life! Xx

  136. glitter*girl says:

    sgj~ :) haha! i think that’s what i said too~ it’s david, it’s david! (kinda loud like a crazy person) LOL :)

  137. kimk says:

    tonette I think I know what you mean but except for the fact he is gone for two years not sure I see him as lol crumbled up and dirty?
    ok those lounge pants.. but lol even those are good!
    talking about the chubby comments?
    lol silly folks.. sure they aren’t liking the doo and suit either.

  138. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    $650 $amolies! WOW To m&g JB?? Really thanking his fans. Not I think the price we paid for David was well worth it besides we got to hear great music sung by a great singer.

  139. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- How you doing? I’m going to vote now. I got my fourth FEE yesterday. I know!! Poor nora, can’t imagine why she hasn’t received hers. Your parcel should arrive Thursday by regular mail. Send me an e-mail when you get it okay. BBL

  140. kimk says:

    sgj guess bigger star bigger m&g prices?

  141. Hi! Sgj, doing OK. I got my 3rd FEE yesterday, forgot i had ordered a 3rd one.
    I’m just lurking, enjoying every ones comments. I’m a little tired today so i can’t seem to get into the loop.

    Thank you for the parcel, i appreciate it very much. I think i will go and vote some more and watch some more vids from Chile. Love OHN and TP.

  142. Another shooting in Oregon? So sad.

  143. sarahhazel says:

    beckysquire ‏@beckysquire

    I think O Holy Night must have been written in hopes that someday, a boy named David Archuleta would sing it.

  144. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–that’s terrible….and it’s at a mall.

  145. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Back from voting. Now I’m tired. Then I get lost in David stuff.

    About the JB M&G fees- Must cost a lot for all the backup he needs for his performances. I know in order to see him the fans had to buy his perfume for $169.00. Phew and they were all lined up waiting in N.Y. at Macy’s. CRAZy.

  146. kimk says:

    169 for his perfume?
    lol suckers who buy it.

  147. sarahhazel says:

    Tj!a€rn HANGENGA :) ‏@watermellonbieb

    Anyone else notice @davidarchie ‘s voice is a tad deeper at the recent Concierto Navidad? #Smexy #AHAHAHAHAHA #GodIMissHim

  148. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–LOL…you’ll never know….we’re suckers for anything David….maybe we’ll share the price of one David perfume….1 oz. for me, 1 oz. for you! :lol:

  149. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hey Fod. :-)

    So I survived my dentist appointment this morning….. :-)

    Thank you for the lovely new post Marylou. happy 3rd twitter birthday FOD. :-)

    Granny Lyn, I’m sorry about your loss also but I’m glad you have many wonderful memories of your aunt. :-)

    Ha, everyone seems to be saying how much more mature david looks…my first impression was how he looks younger with shorter hair. lol
    His shorter hair does take a little getting used to but I actually like it. I like clean cut david – makes him look healthy and …well…clean cut. lol Guess I like my good boys to look like good boys. Never been one for the unshaven shaggy hair look or anything like that.

  150. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Haha, liked that tweet about going to davids mission and finding her husband.

    Does anyone know about youtube….if you push replay, does the extra view count or do you have to refresh the entire page to get it to count?

  151. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Thats one way for david to get his name out there when he returns…do a reality tv show where girls line up to meet david and be interviewed for the title of Mrs Archuleta.

    Think it’ll happen…? lol

  152. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–the only thing I like about that short haircut is….it exposes his beautiful, perfect forehead. :)

  153. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–I think either way, replay or refresh to view again, counts.

  154. tami lyn says:

    it’s weird~ the short haircut makes him look older and younger at the same time depending on the angle/lighting etc. his voice definitely sounds deeper! wonder how many of those sister missionaries in chile are seriously in love with david and secretly hoping to marry him??!! would be very interesting to know! lol :)

  155. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ha Archusuckers!!

    Shanny closeup Los Belen he does look younger but the OHN gah one he seems older.
    boy/man.
    killer of young and old farts everywhere.

  156. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–It does, cute in one angle and maturely handsome in another….I am loving the deeper voice….& didn’t notice any Spanish accent when he sang the English parts of TP…..LOL…I won’t be surprised if there are already a large number of Chilean young ladies & sister mishs already hypnotized and mesmerized by him!

  157. kimk says:

    tamilyn lol all of the above?

  158. sarahhazel says:

    Holly ‏@hollyreFOD

    Tonight I made ravioli while listening to @DavidArchie sing in Italian. I had a moment.

  159. Evening Everyone :)
    May not have been here with you all for a bit but I made sure to stay in the loop. I just love how David’s appearance in the Devotional kept building from Glady’s blog then with pics then with videos and finally with HD prof videos!!!! Let me tell you, I may have been having problems with my back but that devotional Xmas concert made me TOTALLY forget everything that was ailing me!!!! OHN is my all time fav, used to sing it in my grade school church choir. When I’d get to “fall on your knees” I’d always get a lump in my throat but when David sings it the tears start to flow. His voice is so pure and his delivery is so genuine that you have no choice but to succumb haha. Now, the fact that I’m Italian, endears me even more when I heard him sing the Prayer. What a splendid surprise to hear him sing in Italian…never in my wildest dreams!!!!! Go for it, David, YOU CAN SING IT ALL!!!!!!!!!

  160. sarahhazel says:

    Old farts??!!!…..bwahahahahaha! (sad but true) :lol:

  161. sarahhazel says:

    Bri:D!!!!!! ‏@Bri_A_14

    @viviana_garica ok when i was younger i watched hannah montana and i had a crush david archuleta and it didnt come back to me intill nowXD

  162. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kimk- Yep, you got that right. Are you calling us old?? :lol: :lol:

  163. sarahhazel says:

    idamae–aw, sorry your back’s still giving you problems….but at least David’s music keeps your spirits high…..and wow, didn’t know you’re Italian! :)

  164. tami lyn says:

    he is an intriguing study in contradictions~ looks young/old, acts sexy/innocent, seems shy/confident, looks smiley/serious and i’m sure there are many more. he is such a fascinating mystery. after 4 years he is still very hard to figure out. so complex and mysterious yet so down to earth and straightforward at the same time. no wonder we can in-depth analyze him constantly and still not know anything, lol!

  165. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–I’m proud to be one of those old farts….haha! :D

  166. Kimk. This old farts has to leave for a while, ha,ha,ha, Be back later LOL!,

    Kimk, your funny!!!!

  167. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–yup, he is…..it’s that fascination that makes it exciting to be an Archie….he’s full of surprises….keeps us guessing…..hope it stays that way for a long time.

  168. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    :lol: You ladies are cracking me up.
    I think his voice is deeper too. And yep…noticed one young choir lady in particular wasn’t interested in the dancers in front of her at all, her eyes were definitely glued to one spot just to the right of her. lolol
    He looks so comfortable and happy singing there. Makes me happy.

    Hi Idamae – oh I didn’t know you were having problems with your back – backs and knees are the worst – makes everything so difficult and painful. Are you doing anything in particular to help it to heal?
    And I agree with you on the ‘fall on your knees’ bit – thats my favourite bit too as well as the line after it ‘oh hear the angels voices’. It’s all about the glory. Those are the moments david transports me away to another place, lifts me, fills me with joy and rejoicing. Love it! :-)

    Sarahhazel, thanks on the youtube question.

  169. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Old Fart reporting in! Lol

  170. kimk says:

    ha well mind and body are two different things.. older I get the more I chant exactly that!

  171. sarahhazel says:

    Another wonderful day in Archuland!!!
    TAKE CARE, GOODNIGHT EVERYONE AND SWEET DAVID DREAMS!!! :D :)

  172. Bridget says:

    I’m a little late to the party, but I just got my FEE yesterday…OMJ…amazing how such a simple video can convey such joy! And I am addicted to OHN from Chile:) The MKOCT vid by Marcella is so much fun to watch! It’s been a very good December…wouldn’t it be fun to see David’s smile next to all of his holiday cards and gifts? Mmmm…

  173. kimk says:

    Shanny lol thought I saw David looking their way a couple times too. thinking Chile is a pretty nice place to be.. young!

  174. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Yep, I love the many facets of Mr David James.
    I think we’re all contradictions in some ways aren’t we? To be human is to be complicated. lol ;-)

  175. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn- You are so right. David is an enigma. A wonderful puzzle full of surprises and twists and turns. sarahhazel , I’m glad to be one of the old farts too. (cough, cough) idamae, Hope you feel better. Who knew we’d hear him sing in Italian, let alone The Prayer. He can do it all and then some. His clear, pure voice is a gift and we are definetly blessed to be with him on this marvelous journey. sigh!!

  176. sarahhazel, you are so sweet. 2 Suns ago, my hubby and I went to NYC to attend a Cuban heritage xmas party. Boy am I glad I didn’t get on that conga line or I’d be in worse shape hahaha. They almost took it to the street!!!!! What a dinner, we had everything from soup to nuts or should I say de sopa a las nueces LOL.
    Yup, Italian, actually, Sicilian, all the way through :)

  177. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    I was wondering similar things Kim…so who out of these pretty young ladies may have caught the heart and mind of Mr David? lol

    Nite nite Linda and Sarahhazel. :-)

    Hi ya Bridget. So much goodness to squee about right now! it sure has turned into an exciting December. The virtual concert put on by FOD should be a bunch of fun too if folks turn up and squee and blab together. :-)

  178. tami lyn says:

    shanny~ yeah true. probably more noticeable with someone as famous as david with all the blogs/videos on the internet. i shudder to think what it would feel like to be that “out there” with fans analyzing your every look and move. it’s got to be the weirdest feeling! i think that’s why fame can be such a dark and disturbing thing. to feel one way inside and be perceived totally another way by the world. i always pray for david that he can deal with the fame without it messing him up mentally or emotionally.

  179. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight sarahhazel. Sweet dreams. Bridget- Isn’t Fee great. Rainbow is so good. We sure have a lot to be thankful for. Marcella gave us the wonderful MKOCT video and now all this C.C. videos. The Christmas greeting from David was a nice surprise too. We are one lucky group of people.

  180. kimk says:

    ha well come 2014 he takes a quick flight back to Chile we’ll soon see who he comes back with.
    oh boy.. guessing a ton of stuff will hit the fan that day.

    I t’s time to say Goodnight. My computer is a little slow. Have a great night everyone. See you tomorrow

  183. SGJ :) I’m hoping one day he’d sing Il Sogno (the dream) Bocelli dedicated to his deceased dad. The words are so touching and he can tackle the melody with no problem…glory notes and all!!!

  184. dailylurker says:

    Great quality and it’s clips from the whole show. :)

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

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well :grin:

    Goodnight supergrand & sarahhazel!!

  186. Hi everyone, one of my friends posted the chile performance on my facebook page today, I was so happy to see him singing his heart out. Those girls were in awe!

  187. Pastel says:

    Hi all,

    We miss Becky and Jenny too! They are doing great, and after many years posting daily and twice a day, taking a well deserved break. They are @beckyfod and @jennyfod on twitter.

  188. Goodnite, sarahhazel and SGJ :) :)

    Hey Beth…how are you???

  189. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Tamilyn, its probably more noticeable also because we don’t personally know him…we just have to put all the pieces together and because we’re looking closely we notice some of those pieces are contradictory. lol

    Well I will head off too peeps. Lots to do. Middle of the day here and I feel ready for bed already. :roll: Take care, i’ll try and lurk. :-)

  190. tami lyn says:

    dailylurker~ omg thankyou!!! that video is so beyond beautiful! no words to even desribe it! :)

  191. OoO says:

    Hello! if anyone is going to vote at q102 please be sure to vote for The Train too if you know what I mean and David is ahead by a lot.

  192. Shanny, my main prob of 2012 was my hip…with therapy all is good. Now with the close of ’12, my back, which has always been my achilles heel haha, is acting up esp in the am. Muscle relaxers and shots in the lower back have helped but for a long time glucosamine/chodroitin did the trick. We’ll have to see where this all leads hmm Got to get ready for when David gets back :)
    Shanny, did you know that some scientific techies in New Zealand are training DOGS TO DRIVE

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

    Hey idamae! I found out today that my ct scan was good, no cancer, clots, major kidney disease etc…. So its a big relief. I’m having a couple other things being checked out, but that was a biggy, thanks for asking. Gosh, I hope your back gets better SOON!!!!!!!!! Sorry you have to deal with that, a pain in the back is a pain in the neck :grin:

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

    Thanks for the great vid dailylurker :grin:

    Hey Pastel, thanks for the info on Becky & Jenny, they sure deserve a break & we appreciate all you & everyone else at FOD do for us :grin:

  195. dailylurker, thanks for the great find!!! Yes, it is nicely put together :)

  196. Candy says:

    GAH-DAILYLUKER that video is beyond glorious. The voice, the closeups…OHMYHECK took my breath away!! Thank You a million times over!!

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

    WAVING TO CANDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :grin:

  198. Thanks,Beth, oh and that is excellent news!!!!! I know when you’re not feeling well, you start worrying with no justification but it’s only human and you start imagining things. I guess we need that clean bill of health that convinces us to stop worrying…so so glad for you!!!

  199. dailylurker says:

    David look and sound amazing! D is NOT chubby! lols He looks his age now and his tan makes him look kind sexy! YES it does!

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

    Thanks idamae, yeah, still a bit of way to go with things, but yeah, until you get results, you dont know what to think :roll: I’ll tell you though, these vids & pics of David sure helps a persons frame of mind, keeps ya from going bonkers,lol. What a voice, what a heart :grin:

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

  204. Candy says:

    *waving* I sat down to catch up on comments and the phone rang!

  205. Beth, I hear that it’s a BIT snowy by you :) One of the reality shows had a contestant at the MOA for his hometown tour and instead of thinking only of David, now I think of you, too LOL

  206. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey guys….Been watching the videos David’s Christmas performance in Chile…so so reverent and classy….And I might say there are some beautiful and talented Mormon girls down there in Santiago…….I can truly see David falling in love and coming home with one of them…..Oh…..BTW…..I just love David’s nose…….Miss Vicki

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

    idamae, yup, 10 to 17 inches of snow this weekend, depending where you are. Driving has been a bit tricky, bumpy ice on the roads, feels like you dont have any shock absorbers on your car,lol. The MOA, where I met, talked to & an autograph from David :grin:

    Hey Candy, so good to see you. You better get your Diet Coke drinking, twizzler eating self back here, right now, you understand???? Or the boys will come a visitin’ :grin:

  208. Candy, how was NYC? I thought of you when I was there…wanted to leave a secret message for you hidden somewhere in Deluca’s at Rockefeller Center but then thought how stupid…how would you know where to look ROTFLOL!!! On your return trip you MUST try Victor’s Cafe, well worth a visit. Food was excellent!!!

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

    Hey Miss Vicki! Davids nose, lol. Thats what I love about David singing Christmas songs or Hymns, reverent & classy, exactly right. He has great fun with the up tempo songs like Los Pastores a Belin or Feliz Navidad, but the other songs, magical :grin:

  210. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey Idamae….hope your back is feeling better soon and Beth, glad your cat scan came back OK……Our health is very important………..Gotta keep healthy to keep watching David in concert……Miss Vicki

  211. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Yep Beth…Gotta admit…I think David’s nose is sexy….Miss Vicki

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

    Thanks Miss Vicki :grin:

  213. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Another Chauntenettes performance finished, one left to go, our main concert on Friday. Tonight Irena in our group sang a song I’d never heard before, Breath of Heaven by Amy Grant. It was beautiful! I think David could sing it.

  214. jackryan4da says:

    THAT is SO good to learn BETH :)

    Here’s to better health for everyone this coming year!

  215. josie says:

    Just popping back in to say thanks for the info, Pastel. Glad Becky & Jenny are doing well. :) Beth~ That’s great news about your test results. I completely understand the anxiety part. Been there, done that, doing it now. lol. Lyn~ So sorry about your aunt, and other relatives. My goodness, it’s been quite a year for you.

  216. Miss Vicki, I’d say D’s nose is classy and reverent just like his Xmas performances :)
    Happy Birthday to your son…am I right???

  217. Candy says:

    Ida- NYC was fantastic, a tad crowded, took 20 mins to walk one block! Ate dinner at Ellens Stardust Diner…what a fun place! Singing Waiters/Waitresses, dancing/singing on the tables, (wasnt me) Along with the holiday insanity the Beav, 1D and Taylor Swift were doing a concert.

  218. tami lyn says:

    janel~ breath of heaven is omg so beautiful! that’s the song rebeca is singing at the beginning of the video dailylurker found!!! i hope to sing that song at church someday. i can only dream of being half as good as amazing rebeca!

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

    jackryan, Thanks so much :grin: And yes, wishing everyone health & happiness now & for the new year :grin:

    Got tired of listening to David’s Christmas music today and broke out the debut album……Can’t get enough of A Little too Not Over You and To Be With You…..Divine….Is it 2014 yet????? Miss Vicki

  221. Candy says:

    Beth- I could never leave FOD, love the people here. Just took me awhile to lick my wounds, at my age being publicly scolded didnt sit well. But I straightened my big girl undies (they were in a bunch) and decided to do what Ive always done…enjoy time with everyone! :)

  222. Janel, Amy Grant is always a good choice. I’m sure those performances are defininitely putting you in a Christmas mood!

  223. dailylurker says:

    Awww….Candy, so glad you are back. I have always loved your comments. Makes lurking more fun for me. lols :) Well good night everyone!

  224. Patty-Ann says:

    After watching that glorious HD video, God hears our hearts and has answered our prayers. Merry Christmas ♥ http://twitpic.com/bl7qp0

    Merry Christmas to you all.

  225. josie says:

    Beth~ yw. :) And I hope so, too…Yep, yep, yep, Amy Grant. My friends & I used to listen to her tapes alot, & I still have most of her songbooks from…way before she met Vince Gill.

    Now I feel old. lol.

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

    Candy, just glad you’re back, didnt want to have to send “the boys” over to your house, the Fine Feathered Fellows dont like to fly :lol: ??? :grin: Plus, its hard for 4 chickens to be tough :roll:

  227. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hi Idamae….Yep…My son turned 21 today……and yes….he is not a God fearing Mormon who shuns alcohol…..He is at a bar in Blacksburg, VA tonight with a designated driver taking him home….What can I say but that I know he is responsible and focused….Can I brag a little bit here….He only has 15 credits left and will graduate a whole year early from VA Tech with a degree in Economic/Business next Spring…Miss Vicki

  228. dailylurker says:

    The guy that upload that awesome high quality clip said they are trying to get permission before they will upload the whole thing with the complete songs. :) Lets hope they give him the go ahead. David looks so healthy and happy. This makes X-Mas bearable this year.

  229. josie says:

    Candy~ lolol. Glad to see you back….’Night.

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

    Josie :grin: Hey, you’re not old, you’re youth challenged :lol: jk, dont you remember, we’re all 29 here at FOD :grin:

    Goodnight Dailylurker!!!

  231. Lucy says:

    Hi guys, just got an email from Amazon saying my FEE was shipped out today, hmm I didn’t think they were going to get it, I was going to cancel my order since i got one from cdwow, but one can never have enough David CDs right! ;)

  232. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Yep Beth….I am all for being only 29 again…..Miss Vicki

  233. Candy, so glad you enjoyed your time in the city…definitely, tons to do when you’re there. We experienced the same mosh pit walking near the Rock. They were projecting some yuletide symbols (snowflakes, candy canes etc)on the bldgs across the street and the street swelled with tons of people. We only moved as a group…a bit claustrophbic for me. My favs were the families with strollers and some travelers with luggage on wheels ha. It was definitely an accident ready to happen YIKES!!!!!!!

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Didnt notice the time, gotta get some sleep.
    Thanks everyone for your concern & support,
    it helped alot :grin: BIG Huggarooni’s to All :grin:

  235. Candy says:

    Dailylurkere-thats the same feeling I had, made Christmas without David bearable. Just goes to show…there really is a Santa Clause!

  236. Bychance says:

    daily lurker….thank you, thank you, a million times, thank you!!!

  237. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Tamilyn, I want to cover it, but not sure I could be as good as Amy Grant or even Irena. I’ll give it the old college try!

  238. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Night all…Sweet David Dreams……Miss Vicki

  239. Candy says:

    Im off to dreamland, got little to no sleep in NYC. Good Night All

  240. Miss Vicki, I like the idea of the designated driver, you can never be too careful. I wish him lots of luck with his future plans!

  241. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Beth – thats fab news! So glad the big players aee checked off…and that they just came back to you with the results so you could stop worrying!

    Idamae – yes, I do remember your hip giving you grief. I sure hope you can get your back sorted in time for some bachata-ing in 2014 ! :-)
    And…haha…didn’t know about the dogs. That would be crazy if they ever manage it! :shock:

  242. Shanny, they have!!! One was actually behind the wheel steering with his instructor near the window ands it was all the dog’s doing!!! They said that they’ve learned how to shift and accelerate LOL NO JOKE!!! Now, if i can only see the bigger picture hmmm?

  243. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Tamilyn, just went over it once and I can hit all the notes comfortably. My heavens it’s a beautiful song. I wonder where I’ve been…..oh yeah, stuck in David’s songs, most of the time. LOL (it’s a good stuck though)

  244. Janel aka Nellie says:

    idamae, I’m like David, Christmas songs have always been my favorite to sing. Even before I knew David existed. We sing really good, not tootin’ my own horn really because there are 50 of us ladies in the group. We really do sound good. I just have to get past some of the not so good arrangements Margaret picks. We have a lot more good ones that mediocre ones though. Wish everyone could hear us. I’ll be getting a CD of the concert, but I’m too computer illiterate to know how to convert it to the computer to share. I have CD’s from our last year’s Christmas concert (2 days before David’s announcement concert) and our Spring concert. I’ve never watched them. LOL. I need to just to see how I did. Yikes.

  252. kimk says:

    Mike ‏@blisskasden
    Just saw the HD video of @DavidArchie. I guess you can be a Mormon Missionary and look like a Greek God at the same time.

  253. Would love to stay all night on here but I need my beauty rest…sleep tight, everyone!!!

  254. Janel aka Nellie says:

    LOL Kimk, as soon as I saw that recap video I did some of my own screencaps. That was such a difficult task…..LOL. Gorgeous, every screencap.

  255. ray says:

    mike how true

  256. kimk says:

    idamae ha NO WE DO NOT!! WOO HOO.. MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAPPY EASTER, HAPPY MOTHER’s DAY, ha every holiday ALL NEXT YEAR!! oh
    and of course thank you to whoever has given us this wonderful video!!!

  257. Janel aka Nellie says:

    This really has been a gift from David, from God, and from the people in charge of getting LDS.org to stream it, to get Deseret News, KSL and Deseret News to share or advertize it, and for this heavenly wonderful recap video to show up. I think as far as the David fan world goes, this has gone viral. Twitter went wild. Not sure if it has slowed down a whole lot. Can’t stop this runaway train.

  258. kimk says:

    this vid is glorious.. beautiful. the true meaning of Christmas.

  259. kimk says:

    Janel so thankful to everyone. goodness his momma and family must miss him so.

  260. frio says:

    OMG HE IS BEAUTIFUL.

  261. Frio, yes he is. I can’t stop watching them either. I guess i will be watching them all the Christmas season and more.

  262. frio says:

    Linda, 4 years now and I still can’t get over it hahaha.
    I’ve been stuck in this Christmas Devotional vortex ever since those videos came out :)

  263. frio says:

    I dunno how David does it, but I would look horrible on 1080p lol.

  264. David love for what he does, keeps him energized. I admire this young man so much.

  281. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Candy, I think GLORIOUS is the only appropriate word.

    It’s so wonderful to ‘see’ david again also.

  282. sarahhazel says:

    NEW THREAD!!!

  283. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hi Sarahhazel and Tami Lyn. That HD vid is just soooo beautiful isn’t it!

    He’ll be sure to come back with a tan as it will be the end of summer there when he returns.

  284. ksf says:

    Good morning FOD! :)

    I have nothing to say really. Just wanted to drop in and say hello. Lol! It’s hilarious that everyone is still spazzing over the Chile vids and such. To me he looks and sounds the same. Almost. He’s definitely filled out a bit, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I like his hair, but then I tend to prefer shorter hair. Lol.

    Hi tami lyn! :)

  285. tami lyn says:

    good morning ksf! so nice to see u! :) i think what makes all these videos so insanely exciting is the fact we were getting nothing, a total communication black-out, and i think alot of us were getting depressed and discouraged wondering how david was doing and if we would ever see his adorable face again, and then boom! this explosion of pics and videos flying all around here and on twitter and at first wondering if it was all ok and then getting the great news that the church livestreamed it and we could in fact enjoy and share all these glorious videos!! it was just like overwhelming relief and sheer joy just to see his beautiful voice and hear that angelical voice! it was like the best christmas present ever!

  286. glitter*girl says:

    oops! see his beautiful face! :)

  287. glitter*girl says:

    angelic voice! sorry i was spazzing and typing too fast lol :)
