Merry Christmas Eve!!!

Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart…filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.

~Bess Streeter Aldrich in “Song of Years”

Beaver Creek Memories

David just outside my elevator (not really) in Beaver Creek

I took this from our daily paper!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a year ago last Friday night that David delivered his last concert performance in the US before departing on his mission.  Great memories that day…I thought I would share some with all of you today.   There isn’t alot out there, however.  This was the concert where fans moved heaven on earth to try to get information and pictures and vids to share, given some extreme security.

Beaver Creek VIP: We’ll Be There

Screencap from “We’ll be there” performance at VIP

Monica (@starrynites01)  and  Karin (@zerogravity1) changed the lyrics around to the Jackson 5 song I’ll Be There to help articulate a message to David from all of his fans around the world.

I see this performance as a prelude to #DA2014!

I still have the lyrics to this song and God Be With You Till We Meet Again too, which we never got to perform but we were ready!

Some memories from MKOC tour

Coming Full Circle in Beaver Creek

From road to Idol and initial audition to John Mayer’s Waiting on the World to Change, to the last MKOC tour song before his mission, David showed us how OUR world had changed right along with his.  The tour rendition with Jeff Leblanc is so much fun, and it was mastered with only a few rehearsals, I was told.

And Waiting By the Buses

This was my very first time going to meet/say goodbye at the buses, and David took a little time with each one there.  It seemed fitting that this spontaneous event occurred with fans at Beaver Creek, many of which I understand had never met David before.

A Beaver Creek Vlog:

David uploaded a vlog from the side stage of the Vilar Performing Arts Center immediately following his Beaver Creek show.   He let us know there was still ‘more’ to come.  Bring on Nandito Ako!

A very very happy David

It was a bittersweet, but overall very happy day and I was very lucky to be there.  Looking forward to David’s return there one day!

 Postcript on the MKOCFTH Concert

By now hopefully many of you either watched live or watched a bit of the MKOCFTH taped broadcast on our Ustream Channel:

 http://ustre.am/:1T9Yp

You can find the taped broadcast here, all 2 hours and 47 minutes!

We will do it again!

Well now you can have one more opportunity to watch MKOCFTH and chat live!  Kalei, who was not able to come on line due to other commitments last Friday, will be looking for a suitable time for a new broadcast.  The entire setlist is ready and waiting to go.

I have to admit, putting on the concert was a nerve-wracking experience!  We wanted to ensure it would look and sound as close to perfect as possible.  We hurriedly had to change our channel from BlogTV to Ustream after substandard quality during the test on Thursday night.  New software was acquired and ‘learned’, backups made, hardwires established, and fingers were crossed.   We ensured each selection was a feast for the eyes and ears too. While streaming the  30 ‘movies’ created that day from ManyCam to the Ustream channel,  we had a second laptop as back up, just in case, ready to go (in case of what, I have no idea,  it might have had something to do with the Mayans).  Joanie lost her internet connection several times and couldn’t watch or chat and ended up ‘borrowing’ signal from her neighbour (people are so friendly in Minnesota).  It wasn’t until intermission time that we could say it was working.

Credit: Pastel

We really hope, in all of this, we were able to simulate the concert experience for you.  I do think that Friday night helped us all to appreciate what a great talent David is, how blessed we have been to listen to his music and watch his performances, and how generous David has been for these tours, especially the last one which was indeed a labour of love.

Thanks to all of you for your selections from the 3 weeks of FOD polls including tweeting us for vid ideas (NOW what do we post about? lol) and to Joanie and Kalei for going through selections for posting.  Thanks also to Muldur for her inspiration and for creating a great setlist from them, as well as the VIP and encores!!!   Thank you to all the videographers (see list in credits on the recorded broadcast) and a special thank you to Marcella for creating two special compilation vids of Falalalala and Little Drummer Boy and keeping them private so we could unveal them on Friday.  Thanks to our guests (Kari, Richard Parkinson, Sunny Hilden and Dave Filice ) for dropping by and chatting ~ you all rock!  Thanks to the donors of the trivia contest gifts (see Joanie’s post yesterday for the winners).  Thanks to David From Texas (DFT) for great promo on Facebook and for the opening visual for the concert program.

And to all of you, in the words of David:  ”Thanks for coming out“.  I think you will agree with me that, once you have taken in this many great performances strung together like we experienced together on Friday, you realize again just was a brilliant artist David is.  He can be powerful and persuasive, or gentle and sublime.  All in the same concert.  His interpretation skills are masterful.  Second. To. None.  His voice is gaining richness and depth.  I gained a whole new appreciation for these skills of David’s on Friday night, after working on the setlist and previewing every single vid and most of the alternate options, and re-running the selected ones for dozens of hours last week.    For me, getting ready for this virtual concert was a gift in itself.

And Friday night’s experience, after all was said and done , was an example of just why we all miss him. :)  Tons

    Hope you all have a great Christmas.

    MY CHRISTMAS POEM TO ALL OF YOU:

    Twas the Night before Christmas and all through the chat, FOD’ers were blogging to this one and that. Their stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that a David cd would soon be there! Pastel in her kerchief and Joanie in her cap, had just settled down for a well-deserved nap. When out on the site there rose such a chatter, they sprang from their beds to see what the matter. They ran to the window their faces all red, they both exclaimed… OHMYGOSH ASHLEY they need a new thread!
    And who to their wondering eyes should appear, the FOD chatters so lively and quick, they knew in a moment it was not St. Nick! More rabid then Beliebers they came, Kalei whistled and shouted and called them by name. On Roosters, on hens and some little chicks, you better hurry and watch that Rainbow Movie flick!
    As Pastel drew in her hand and was turning around, down the chimney David came with a bound! He was dressed in a jacket with a scarf wrapped around. His eyes how they twinkled, his dimple how merry, his lips oh my goodness the color of a cherry! He had a beautiful face with no signs of a belly, one glance and the Archugaze turned them to jelly! He spoke not a word but went right to work, he filled their stockings with gifts galore, tickets to his #DA2014 Solo Tour!! After laying his finger aside of his nose, he gave a nod and up the chimney he rose. He sprang to his sleigh in such a rush, he dropped all the cd’s of his multi-platinum song Crush! They heard him exclaim as his drove out of sight…
    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!!

  55. Candy— That was beautiful. You made my Christmas. We have such awesome Archies and talented too. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO!!!!

  56. kmb says:

    OH MY GOODNESS! I just watched the 14-minute BTS MKOCT video and it is AWESOME! Team Archuleta is taking VERY good care of us during David’s mission! I don’t know what to say to them except THANK YOU!!! David is an amazing person who surrounds himself with amazing people.

  57. When Christmas is over we need to get together and power vote for David on Q102 to try and catch him up.

  58. kmb says:

    Whoops, meant to mention that the Daily Top Ten chart is an overall chart. That means it contains Pinoy and International videos. So Forevermore had the most days at #1 of ANY video this year. Go Archies :)

  84. Thanks for the info Ali! Merry Christmas to you too.

    The video that the MoTab Choir uploaded last month with David & the choir now has the most views of any video on their channel :D

    If I checked the numbers correctly, it actually has the most by over 30,000 views.

    Feliz Navidad FamiliaDavid y AmigoesDavid!
    Christmas is the time for telling your loved ones how much they mean to you. It’s about family, love, nurturing, and feeling homesick. Christmas is a necessity and has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for someone else besides ourselves. This day unites the entire world in an entity called love. So my message to you all is that I wish you all an amazing day of love, hope, and joy!

  93. kimk says:

    Merry Christmas wonderful folks!!

    Hope your day is merry, happy and wise!!
