As we struggle to make sense and deal with the tragedies in Connecticut last week, let’s reflect on the words about compassion from Mother Teresa.

* * * * *

The virtual concert is almost here!  Celebrating with two polls today!

It’s almost here:  The My Kind of Christmas from the Heart Virtual Concert on BlogTV

Reminder that the My Kind Of Christmas From The Heart starts  at 9:30pm ET, Friday, Dec. 21 on FOD’s channel on BlogTV.  We are testing it all out this week so keep your fingers crossed!

But we need to finish our video ‘setlist’.  Two polls today:  Waiting for Yesterday and Melodies of Christmas.

Waiting for Yesterday

#1:  From Djabell13, Providence RI.  David was trying out some new hand movements here, lots of waving at the crowd!

#2:  From flipangel34, Billboard Live THREE YEARS AGO TODAY in Mashantucket, Connecticut!  Love the instrumental intro, the different camera angles, the close ups of David and the band.  Audience reaction is missing somewhat, tho :(

 

#3:  Credit djbell13.   From the solo tour in 2009, Northampton. David is a little stiff but loosens up by the end. Nice to see some of this earlier work.

#4:  From ArchuletaAvenue, Greenville, SC.  Great angle, great vocals, great fan reaction.   This vid is an overall beauty!

#5:  Another from Djbell13.  The last show of CFTH in Westbury.  I was MESMORIZED by the fan reaction! David was particularly hoppy!

#6:  From EmilyLuvsArchie.  Grand Rapids, MI.  ‘Twas hot in there!  Bouncy, defiant David!  Loved how he said…THANK you…. at the end.

Melodies of Christmas!

#1:  From 8throwcentre, MKOC tour, SLC.    David appears here with a little help from David Osmond and Jennifer Jordan Frogley.  Sounds great with the live backing vocals!  David was in very strong voice!

#2:  Anaheim, from FanbabyTX.  This is a visual beauty with great audio too.  Love how you can see the band members very clearly too!

#3  From NitaAsian, Westbury, MKOC tour.  The fan reaction was amazing and David responded!  A sweet smile at the end :)

#4.  From hazeleyd71. Majestic Theatre in Dallas.  A little known video and not from the tour.  Nice intro!  Strong vocals!

#5: From allstarfiction.  Irving, MKOC tour.  This is not the best sound quality at the beginning, but it was a general admission venue!   Audience participation ftw!  I love how different it is from the others :)

#6:  From 8throwcenter.  Baltimore.  Includes the cool lightshow inbetween the pop set and Christmas set.

#7:  From np1107, The Grove in LA performance. Fun venue and set.  Love to see the singers/band behind try to sing along!

Two years ago!  Motab Memories!

Credit: VickiFOD

It was two years today (Dec. 17) that David performed at the first of 3 performances with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at the Conference Centre in Temple Square, Salt Lake City, Utah. There was a dress rehearsal the night before. LDS Public Affairs released this video last year

David Archuleta fans from everyone flocked to Utah to enjoy the amazing performances live at the Conference Centre, or streamed live at various venues in SLC.  Tickets were hot hot hot, with over a million requests to the  Motab organization for tickets.

Press conference time!  Thanks to Kari Sellards for this one.

David and his tux, thanks to @MoTabChoir on Twitter!

Here is a vid of the signing just after the Friday performance.  I had no idea how David did this, the performance was likely exhausting, he likely ran right over and the line was LONG!  David was most gracious with everyone!  I see you Kari.  You too Sunny!

 

Here are some pics from Kristin (@IceCreamKPie)

…. and this was posted last week but if you want a sample of what the Glad Christmas Tidings DVD containing the Motab performances is like, watch this!

 And you can see this all again!

If you have access to BYUtv,  you can see the program on Saturday, Dec. 22, at 8pm ET/6pm MT and again on Christmas Day at 8pm ET/6pm MT.

We have more fan pics and stories.  Will post some on our “lite” day tomorrow :).  But I’ll leave you with this one including our very own Kalei (with Jerry and Janet) for now!

The Christmas Story in German ~ featuring Silent Night

I did not translate this from German but this YouTube channel mormonensindchristen  featured David Archuleta’s Silent Night as background to the Nativity story.  Thanks @jeffrFOD for sending this in.

“Shush, David Archuleta is made of tiny magic, okay?”

Okay.

From letablake blog

In praise of O Holy Night and a number of variations on the song, David’s track is mentioned.  I’d say he is made of major magic!

One year ago!

MKOC at the Grove!

….and we have brand spanking new pix!  Thank you Lily! (@platinumarchie).  You are such a go-getter for digging these up for everyone to see!

As Found About…..

Time to vote!

Musiqtone:  The pop bracket:

This is it. The final preliminary round of 100. ONE-HUNDRED videos. Only the Top 12 can move on and continue to represent Pop Music.  Then we go into the second prelim final of 48.  Then we take the Top 8 in each bracket for the real competition.

The round of 32 will continue to be in the genre brackets until the Elite Eight (Top 2 in each) comes and we reseed, reposition regardless of genre. 

So EVERY VOTE COUNTS. If you want to see any of these 12 move on to the 8 available slots for each bracket, MAKE THEM COUNT! This final prelim round ends Saturday December 22 at 11:59 pm ET! MAKE EVERY VOTE (ALL 100) COUNT.

 So nice in red!

Someone got their Nord as an early Christmas present?  Nice!

Have a wonderful day today everyone.

    This one actually has David being sung happy birthday to with trick candles (I think he’s never had trick candles before that point), sings The Christmas Song, AND Crush. Triple the video pleasure! 3 years ago today!

    Oops, sorry that was 4 years ago today.

    janel~ your cinnamon rolls look amazing!

  29. breanne says:

    Thanks for the post Pastel!! Love all the pics, vids & from his singing with the MOTAB Choir. I watched the dvd last night and felt peace in my heart and had a smile on my face watching David. He is such a beautiful angel!!! <3

    Don't forget to vote 1 song hourly for Everybody Hurts & Broken on Chart Central:
    http://chartcentral.frihost.net/cc/

  30. OH!!! NO!! They have David against Kelly Clarkson on Q102. She really gaining right now. I know this one is going to be hard but we can at least give them a run for thier money. We don’t want to let David stay too far behind. VOTE! if you can.

  31. Rapport says:

    What’s the Q102 link, Linda? I’m going to join you in the “good fight”!

  32. kimk says:

    Pastel wow!! thanks!!!!

    Next bracket is UP!!
    Kelly is winning so far!!

    Q102 Philly ‏@Q102Philly
    @david_archuleta Who had the BEST JINGLEBALL PERFORMANCE of all time? @DavidArchie or @kelly_clarkson RT & Vote here: http://bit.ly/UwSlmb

  33. kimk says:

    David was beyond gorgeous at Deseret Books on MOTAB night!!!
    ha upclose.. ooh la la!!!!

  34. kimk says:

    Rapport just posted it!! think it just came up too and he is against Kelly!!

  35. Rapport! Kimk just posted it.

  36. Rapport says:

    Thanks. You guys are cupcakes!

  37. OoO says:

    Hi guy on q102 when vote for David make sure we vote for The Wanted too ;))) If u know what I mean…

  38. kimk says:

    ha cupcakes and cinnamon rolls… my hips are calling you!!!

  39. Philly Fan says:

    I know a lot of fans do not want to vote on the Q102 poll and rightfully so. But I went to the JJ that David performed at for Q102 and he was the BEST performer that night. So I will vote for him because he deserves it. JMHO

  40. Philly Fan says:

    Also when David comes home in 2014 maybe just maybe they will ask him to appear again knowing that he still has a great fanbase. Also JMHO.

  41. kimk says:

    Philly Fan I am voting.. even with all that I know about this poll and Q102. no David around.. I LOVE SEEING HIS FACE UP THERE!!

  42. kimk says:

    it’s like take that.. YES we still DO LOVE DAVID!
    oh and yes he still has fans!!

  43. kimk says:

    Philly fan you got to go? wow lucky you!

  44. kimk says:

    OoO why are we voting for The Wanted?

  45. Philly Fan says:

    Kimk! Love Kelly but David is just as amazing as her vocally him being the male version. Out of all the seasons of AI. Kelly,, E. Yamin and David are the best. Carrie as well vocally but not my cup of tea . Also I don’t like to bring this up again but I keep asking myself why did he not record and put on itunes “Senseless” I soooooooooo love that song. I really do believe that it would have hit the charts since so many people can relates to the lyrics. Even the comments on Ytube video ask if the song can be purchased. I really think he/or his management missed the chance for a hit song. JMHO.

  46. kimk says:

    Philly Fan I like Carrie and Kelly but David is king of them all!!

  47. kimk says:

    oh lol just figured out why we to vote for The Wanted. ha!

  48. OoO says:

    Oh yes Kimk because if David win this round he is not going to go against Adam because Adam is winning by a lot right now. Gaga has less fan voting for her right now. That’s why last time I said to vote for the Train because Justin have tons of fans.

  49. kimk says:

    OoO on the vote for The Wanted too! agree!

  50. OoO says:

    Kimk I made a mistake I meant The Wanted. And also I am still voting for the Train because Avril got a lot of fans and winning by a lot.

  51. Kimk, Philly, Fan, OoO, I.m on it too. Like Kimk says, i love seeing Davids gorgeous face up there. We have to let fans know that he is still around and will be back.

  52. kimk says:

    OoO Train it is too then!

  53. Rapport says:

    I’m lovin’ all this “strategic” thinking. lol

  54. OoO says:

    These unfairly treatments from radio stations….We will tell them WHO’S IS THE BOSS. ha ha

  55. Philly Fan says:

    OoO! I with you on that statement and voting.. lol

  56. kimk says:

    lol strategy.. or sneaky?
    not that I care either.
    only probs is Avril and AL fans are vicious.
    and folks ha
    we are not!

  57. Rapport says:

    Is there a “Vangie” who can help us vote? All we have to do is ask, rice? I mean, right?

  58. Rapport, If there was a Vangie i would ask her to bring David back, Of course he wouldn’t he’s very committed to what he is doing at the time.
    We could sure use her for voting though.

  59. Rapport says:

    Have to say I loved his Vangie spots — especially “Merienda”. Funny content. Funny David.

    Whaddya think? A New Year’s David-Does-the-Dougie from Kari? Wish I may, wish I might.

  60. Rapport says:

    That should read: A New Year’s Eve David-Does-the-Dougie from Kari?

  61. Rapport! oooooH!!!!! That would be awesome. Would be a perfect timing.

    I am so grateful for everything we have been able enjoy from David & team.
    Never in my wildest dreams did i think we would have anything new to enjoy.
    This has definitely not been a drought.

    Of course we still have next year, but i have faith that something good will come to us.
    All these polls keeps us united. We are so lucky to be Archie fans.

  62. Davids back on 9th place on hit list for MYX & 6th place for MIT 20. We need to keep voting for EH on MYX.

  63. kimk says:

    Ashley⚓ ‏@Ashlee_BowerzXO
    Im pretty sure when David Archuleta didnt win American Idol more than half the population of girls cried hysterically

  64. kimk says:

    think The Dougie is for one year.. March 2013?

  65. Rapport says:

    Kimk, I seem to be seeing the Dougie everywhere on morning TV. Guess it was on my mind! The fact that David can actually dance (yes, David, you can), makes me eager to see his Dougie dance-du-jour.

  66. Linda Spivey#DA2014 ‏@erlindita

    @RanLATIN @DavidArchie @kariontour What an appropriate song for this tradgedy. BROKE BUT NOT BROKEN.

  67. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hey guys! Boy i’ve missed you all the last coue of days! Been so busy gearing up for Christmas and vacations etc. I managed to lurk for a couple of days but the last three haven’t even managed that much.
    So good to come and get a little ODD refreshment. Did I miss anything?
    I love the dimple delishousness on the front page and those pics with david and Ben man-hugging are cool too.
    I went to a concert last night – saw my hubby’s long time idol – Morrissey. It was his first opportunity to see him live after 20 years of being a pretty dedicated fan. We got to be front row and moshed it up a bit. It was fun. A little deaf from being directly next to the speakers – could feel my body vibrating with the base too lol – but seem to have come through unscathed this morning lol.

    Philly fan – with senseless I get the impression that Belinda leaked that song in an attempt to try and convince David to take a direction with his career that he didn’t want to take. And I suspect that because he was feeling forced he has probably stubbornly dug his toes in, with regards to that song. It was probably one of the nails in the coffin for why he decided to ‘part ways’ with her too….?
    All just speculation of course but it all makes sense in my mind’s eye.

  68. sarahhazel says:

    Hello again, folks!!! Went clothes and shoes shopping with my daughter. Tiring but fun!
    Got Chinese food take-out.

    Yes, wanna see the Dougie too!
    Got 300 votes in at Musiqtone!

  69. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–nothing like mosh-pit for the ultimate concert experience! ;)

  70. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel sounds like the perfect girls day out! :-)
    I look forward to those days – with 5 daughters i’m sure i’m bound to get some. :-)

  71. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–yup, you’ll get 5x the fun someday with your girls! :)

  72. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel – lol – true. There was a great atmosphere there – good audience and some pulling of people up on stage. A couple who tried to force their way on but got forcefully pushed off by security. But Morrissey still graciously went over and touched their hands before they got ‘escorted’ off.
    I was teasing hubby about Morrissey earlier, in the day and hubby said to me…”well if, it was david archuleta you’d be camped out at his hotel and chasing him through the streets. ” I told hubby i’m glad he knows what to expect when my opportunity comes! lol ;-)

  73. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lol – right now it’s five times the nagging to buy them ‘these shoes’ …but the writings on the wall for some great shopping fun one day. :-)

  74. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–LOL….least your hubby got advanced warning….haha….We’ll all be super spazzing and excited for you when that time comes and will be expecting a 2000-word recap from you, OK?! :lol:

  75. glitter*girl says:

    another earthquake near santiago 3.9

  76. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha, think 2000 words should be easy for me lol….but ok, we have a deal. ;-)
    I’m glad hubby knows what to expect cos I was quietly thinking…it would be cool to have hubby be a fan of david one day too (i think he’s heading in that direction) but I don’t want him cramping my spazzing fangirl style. ;-)
    So it’s good to know he understands the situation. :-)

  77. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi glitter girl/Tami lyn. Thanks for the heads up. Pretty small peanuts and not much we could do other than worry anyway…but us mother-hens like keeping our eye on these things anyway don’t we. :-)
    ”Have ODD – will worry”

  78. Shanny in Australia says:

    Was thinking…with the changes to the age requirements to missionary service – a lot more ladies will be serving soon….more pickings for david out there on his mission?
    lol Just kidding,, just kidding…

  79. Shanny in Australia says:

    Well still busy, short stop today. Take care you david-loving peeps. :-)

  80. tami lyn says:

    hi shanny! only thing that bothers me is thinking that the little ones might be leading up to a big one or is it the other way around? lots of little ones mean no big one? i don’t remember! :(

  81. McKenzie Harris says:

    Warning: Mission related.

    If anyone is interested, the person who posted the HD compilation video of the Christmas concert in Chile has now posted the complete HD video of The Prayer. I’m truly speechless. David was spectacular. It is really tragic that more people will not be able to see this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9-LwnRj3D0&sns=em

  82. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–have a great day!

  83. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–I guess Chile is like Japan….earthquake country….oh well, no use worrying….we’ll just to have pray for David and co.’s safety.

  84. sarahhazel says:

    McKenzie–thanks!!!

  85. sarahhazel says:

    The TP HD video….W.O.W.

  86. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Just dropping in to say Hi to all. Been shopping all day. Everyone is bustling about but they are all so quiet. All still feeling so bad about the tragedy. Just going through the motions but not feeling the spirit. Going to go vote and then gonna call it a night. Hope David and everybody in Chile is safe and sound.

    Got my 2nd round of votes in (1oo both times) for Everybody Hurts on Musiqtone:

  89. breanne says:

    I love David’s Everybody Hurts mv so much!! Let’s keep watching it to get the #’s up:
    http://www.youtu.be/-UrNy_YtMUo

  90. Philly Fan says:

    McKenzie! Thank you a zillion times. I was waiting for an HD version. Simply Beautiful.

  91. Spirit says:

    Pastel….Thank you for the great post and the beautiful pictures of David. Have spent way too much time gazing at them!

    I’m watching “The Voice” and missing David. Was moved by the heartfelt singing of “Hallelujah” at the beginning, but the other performances are just average to me and they are so overproduced. Had to go to youtube and watch David’s performance of “Smoky Mountain Memories”….so sweet, pure, and straight from the heart. This was the performance where Paula said that he had a beautiful aura about him and called him glorious. Couldn’t agree with her more!

  92. kimk says:

    wish David was more mosh pitty!!

    Shanny lol.. got a come back but nope not going there.

    Mckenzie at least we get to see it. thing is unless David comes back goes more mainstream with tv and such folks will not see him all that much. why on twitter so many.. ‘what happened to David Archuleta’ tweets.
    wonder why his team is so quiet? guess maybe because they have nothing to share is all I can figure. do
    hope they finally share his Rainbow mv with the world.

  93. Hello everyone, just got back from teaching my confirmation class at church. The kids did a beautiful ceremony for all the children and adults who lost thier lives,
    Sarahhazel, i’m going for my second 100 votes on musiqtone.
    It didn’t let me vote again before i left. Will go vote on all the polls. will try to get back if not. Goodnight to all.

  94. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey guys…..been very busy getting ready for Christmas….Just love hearing “Waiting for Yesterday” again…..Merry almost Christmas to everyone……Miss Vicki

    In order for David to win this q102 is The Train and The Wanted must win this round or else David will have no chance to compete with Avril and Adam and miss the chance of getting the Championship title so vote vote and vote….a gift for his birthday ha ha.

  106. OoO says:

    That’s mean we will vote for the Train and The Wanted.

    Always too late to the party. Just had to say my son’s girl friend sent me a link to OHN from the concert. She told me how good it was. She speaks Spanish and loved it. I sent her a link to The Prayer. I do love that girl!!!!!

    No-one pulled me up when I called Melinda ‘Belinda’ LOL. Know a Belinda in real life.

    Kim…lol…you have me imagining all sorts of potential comebacks. Kinda fun razzing up the Archie masses sometimes. ;-) Nah…not really my intent, just a little light hearted teasing/speculation.

    Tami Lyn, usually small earthquakes help to relieve the pressure building up and therefore help prevent a big one but of course nature is nature and sometimes does it’s own thing anyway.

    Spirit love what Paula said too…so true!
    Shiny and glorious are two words I like to associate with david.

    Jeani – haha she knows her way to your heart! :lol: ;-)

    JR, thanks for the link!

    Just by way of general announcement….I have FEE in my personal possesion too now! Came yesterday. Haven’t had a chance to watch though…will try to do so tonight. :-)

    Linda…i was with the sister missionaries here recently…one of them is about to go home in January. I mentioned about it being her second Christmas away from her family, she said that she actually loves being out on her mission at Christmas time. Maybe David won’t miss home as much as we project he might…..? He’s probably well and truly ‘in his groove’ by now – adjusted to things, got used to the new normal kind of thing. :-)

    Good morning Miss Kim. :-)
    That tweet from Janina there got me watching a few vids from the Phils. I too love the love he gets there. :-)
    I can’t help but think though….as I watch him walking through the screaming crowds escorted by security….what does it feel like to be david there in that moment….to be a normal person one minute and then to arrive somewhere and have crowds screaming and jostling for you? Crazy. Surreal. And I also can’t help imagine what his fellow missionaries might think if they didn’t know of him previously and then saw that Elder Archuleta was a person THIS SPECIAL! lol Love it! :-)
