A Special Good Well Wish!

We interrupt this Tuesday Lite post of #11394 celebration to bring you an important message regarding our one and only FOD writer and woman extraordinaire, Mary Lou (@Pastelpastel ).


Just a little favor to ask:  If you could all tuck Pastel (Mary Lou) in your prayers that would be awesome!
She’s going to be having a little unplanned surgery most likely today. She’s in the hospital, ok, in good hands, and she’s been keeping me updated. She will hopefully be able to return home soon after the surgery. I’ll give all updates from her as they come~
Thanks so much!! <3

Psssst And here’s a group card for her if you’d like to sign! It will be delivered Friday at 6 pm EST. Click the card to sign. Thanks so much! :)

Celebrating #11394 ~5 Years Ago Today!

It’s a very special day in the “Archuworld” today. Once upon a time, 5 years ago today to be exact, while many of us were watching the auditions for the 7th season of American Idol, our lives changed.

As we watched a young 16 year old boy (16 at the time of the audition) take center stage in San Diego before Randy, Paula, and Simon, explaining something about vocal paralysis, we had no idea what would happen next as he began to sing. All it took was 45 seconds…45 seconds of singing the beginning verse of a familiar John Mayer song and we were hypnotized, mesmerized, and magnetized!  Our worlds were suddenly changed and they were changed forever!!! Who would have thought, who could have known that 5 years later we would be “here” congregating daily as his faithful followers celebrating the music he’s given us, the artistry, the gifts, the friendships, and most of all the beautiful person of David Archuleta!

So in honor of today, although it’s been posted recently, the instrumental performance of how “Fans Of David” began! Even though he can’t be here with us today on twitter or in a vlog to celebrate, I hope he can feel our joy and gratitude all the way down in South America, for tuning in that night and having our lives changed. **vid credit DavidArchuletaMormon channel**


Here’s a shorter but very clear crisp vid of David’s audition uploaded by aacali (on you tube)

A WOTWTC  Anniversary Poem By Margy

Since tomorrow is the anniversary of David’s audition for Idol airing, I have written a new acrostic using songs he performed on Idol. You can find it on my blog.  I am also blogging about AI 12 if anyone is interested.

http://cacophonyvsharmony.blogspot.com/2013/01/january-22-2008-day-that-will-live-in.html

 January 22, 2008- A Day That Will Live In Our Hearts Forever

January 22 marks the five year anniversary of David Archuleta’s first appearance on our televisions during Season 7 of American Idol. It also marks 300 days of service for David in the mission field for the LDS church. So much has happened in the five years. So many fans have been gained. So many songs have been sung. 

I wanted to write something using song titles to commemorate this day, but as I gazed at the almost endless number of choices, my brain began to ache. Then I thought, just use songs performed on Idol. The listed shortened some. I wanted to make sure I had a complete listing of all the songs David performed, either as a solo or in group performances, so off to some trusted fans sites for a little research. My list was not complete. I had previously noted live group performances, but I totally forgot about the Ford videos. Add 12 more songs to the list. Now, I believe I have a complete listing. Maybe. 

I tried, but I was not able to include all of the 63 songs David was a part of on Idol that year. Some were just too difficult to work into this acrostic. I hope you like it.

Thanks so much, Margy, for sharing your beautiful poem and thoughts with us!!

I’ll end on this Lite day with a SUPER pic (Cherry Mariano really blessed us with this one~) and also a slideshow of David Archuleta performing and greeting the fans at SM Mall last January! Wow has that time flown!

Lastly for today, a “Forevermore” cover by Isaiah Antonio

Isaiah first sang for David (and us) last year in David’s hotel when he asked to sing “Something  Bout Love” for David! Now he’s chosen to sing “Forevermore” from the same titled cd! It’s a nice performance, Isaiah !

Have a great Tuesday everyone!  I’ll update as needed!

  18. kimk says:

    sarahhazel will go out on a limb here and say it is a CD!!!!?!! AKK IF SO!!!!!

  19. nora says:

    good morning-sarahhazel, it usually lets me vote every 6 hours, so I can get 300 votes in every day on musiqtone, already got in my 1st 100 votes.

    Hope all is going well for Pastel, thoughts are with her this morning.

  20. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I hope you are RIGHT!!! I second your “AKK IF SO”….haha!

    LMH they call themselves the Fighting MINOZ. He has a lot of fans and if they rally them all up they could overcome. They love thier Idol as we love love ours.
    But The ARCHIES never surrendeer win or lose.
    We have learned from David to be gracious losers.
    Joanie great post, don’t have time to see it all this morning, but will when i get home.
    Have a nice day all.

  36. Janel aka Nellie says:

    jim Alcobilla, welcome to our fan family. Hope you will join us.

  38. breanne says:

    THANKS for the post Joanie & thanks for putting up a card for us to sign for Pastel!! :)

  39. Grannycrush says:

    Our power voting isn’t working. We just have been out voted by about 300 votes. Frustrating.

  40. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Congratulations to Elder Archuleta on 300 days of service to his Father in Heaven and the Chilean people. http://twitpic.com/bxe43l

  41. sarahhazel says:

  42. Grannycrush says:

    We are actually 900 votes down since 10:00 this morning.

  43. kimk says:

    ray ha.. without the crazy life is no fun!!!

  44. breanne says:

    Miscounted on my count earlier on the Foreign Act Newsmaker/EL poll. We are actually ahead by 55,000+ votes right now.

    Go to the link just under the poll that says “see this poll on”, click there & scroll down the page a bit until you see the Zac Efron pic. Below that click the youtube link. Be sure to vote on youtube. Then go to the facebook link below that & when you get to facebook like ELifestyles & David’s pic.

    To vote on twitter tweet this:
    @ELifestyleBlog #TELPinoyNewsmaker I Vote for David Archuleta for Foreign Act Newsmaker Of The Year.

    Hope all of this makes sense!!

  45. OoO says:

  46. Joanie/suttygal says:

    Hi everyone!
    Just got off the phone with Mary Lou (Pastel.)
    Her surgery went well and she’ll most likely be released to recuperate at home later today! She thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes! Hopefully she’ll take all the rest she needs, but I’m sure we’ll see her back “on” soon. :)

  52. Candy says:

    And did he ever change our world!! To put it mildly…how unsuspecting were we when we tuned into watch AI7 that this unassuming young boy, with the killer smile and vocals to match would rock our world for the next five years and beyond! While I had been a fan of AI before his arrival, I had no idea just what being a fan would come to mean for me, well for all of us. I guess you could say we bought reality TV tickets to the greatest show on earth titled…David Archie Fandom!! I wouldn’t change a thing…ok maybe one thing. :)

  53. Candy says:

    Thanks Joanie for the great post and for the wonderful news about MaryLou! So glad she came through surgery with flying colors and will now be resting and recouperating at home.
    When you look at the two lead pictures I cant help but marvel at how he has changed, yet remained much the same. Cute at 16, handsomely gorgeous at 22!
    Ha, super glad he ditched the baggie style clothes!

  54. sarahhazel says:

    Random: Turned out Beyonce lip-synched and Kelly sang live yesterday :shock:
    http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/awards/did-beyonce-lip-sync-at-the-inauguration–194852131.html

  55. Candy says:

    Hi Sarah-thats not all that unusual for a singer to lip-sync when they are performing outside at such a major event, especially in harsh conditions. Too many things can go wrong technically, wind can distort the mic sound, etc. David did the one and only time that I am aware of for the Macys Parade.

  56. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–Then Kelly’s one brave woman….haha….

  57. kimk says:

    sarahhazel was wondering why it was so perfect.. well kind of sad really.
    weather? oh pooh David sang at Gov Huntsman’s inauguration and it was way colder.
    glad to see Kelly sang live.. what Idol’s are known for
    their live voice.
    like David of course!

  58. kimk says:

    Candy I think he did.. only time as I recall.
    wonder if that was his idea.
    a big star like Bieber for instance has a lot to lose if they mess it up so my guess why he does.
    J Hudson got it bad last night online singing for the first couple because she was a little off.

  59. Candy says:

    kimk-difference is David wasnt singing at the Presidential Inauguration in front of about a bazzallion viewers. He did a great job at Huntsmans but it was hard to hear him.
    Sarah-You’re right, Kelly was the braver of the two I give her a lot of credit. Even with the cold, wind she sounded fantastic! And to think I voted for Justin G!!

  60. kimk says:

    Beyonce is appearing at the Superbowl halftime.. bet she is live for that now.

  61. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–LOL…we all know David is brave…..remember the NYE performance in Vegas….that was one very cold night!

  62. Candy says:

    kimk-yep, thinking you’re right. Im betting who ever performs at SuperBowl 2014 wont be live though…its in North Jersey in February. What were they thinking picking the Meadowlands!

  63. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–I guess you were a Justin G. fan back then….haha….well, he’s cute and sang very well….too bad his career didn’t really take off.

  64. sarahhazel says:

    Kelly did sound amazing….and you could really tell it was LIVE. Kudos to her!

  65. Candy says:

    kimk-Im sure that is why Beyonce didnt chance it, Jennifer is getting ragged on and we all know she can sing. A few notes off and the public can be relentless, especially when you are a superstar. I remember hearing Taylor/Miley live and cringed.

  66. kimk says:

    ⚡Frankie. ‏@FrankieFI
    Someone just said I look like David Archuleta. Whoever that is.

    lol he kind of does.

  67. Candy says:

    Sarah-Yep a Justin fan, watched it with me grandson who was 8 at the time, and he wasnt into girls so we voted for Justin!

  68. sarahhazel says:

    You guys think David would sing LIVE at a Presidential Inaguration?
    I think he would!

  69. kimk says:

    oh yeah Las Vegas.. poor thing he sang in a FREEZER!!

    way I see it anyway the Idols stock just went up tenfold.
    fine by me and looking good for David’s return!! :)

  70. Candy says:

    Sarah-Wonder if it would depend on his status as a performer, a big superstar…he would probably be advised not to. But knowing David he would fight to do it live.

  71. Candy says:

    Aside from the fact she sounded fantastic, Kelly looked gorgeous, Loved her hair!

  72. kimk says:

    sarahhazel have no doubt he would.. would think alien’s took over his lil bod if he did lip synch!!

  73. Hi! Everyone. just got home.
    Pastel i’m so glad everything went well with your surgery.
    I have been voting from work on EL and Musiqtone. just need 100 more for my 300′
    We lost a few points, but lets just keep on truckin!!
    Saw thier chat and they are frustrated because the fans are not voting and supporting thier Idol.
    Didn’t see Beyonce singing will have to watch the video on it. its all over tweeter.

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

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well today. So happy to hear Pastel is doing well, continued Love & (((HUGS))) to her :grin:

    Just think how long it took them to talk David into using a form of autotune on the background vocals on one song. Lip sync, dont think so, he likes things real, live so you can feel the song, leaving the natural moves the voice makes :grin:

  75. sarahhazel says:

    POWER VOTING TIME!!!

    I like David as a bad boy!

  87. kimk says:

    Lurks thanks!!

    sarahhazel ha that he is… he is sooooooo latino!!!

  88. CindyUT says:

    Good evening, everyone! WOW! What an amazing 5 years it has been since we were all first introduced to David. He has definitely changed my world in more ways than one. My only complaint about his audition is that he should have come with a warning label:

    WARNING: Master of stealing hearts and changing lives (just to name a few).

    Had I been warned in advanced what this young man was about to do to me, I could have been more prepared for the initial impact. But, noooooo. David pulled a sneaky and stole my heart without even asking my permission for it. He also went on to change my life in ways I had never expected.

    Now that I think about it, being warned about David in advanced might have taken away all the fun and adventure out of becoming his fan. Being forwarned would have also taken away the element of surprise and all the wonder and awe he genererated. So, maybe if David had come with a warning label that night, this might have been the warning instead:

    WARNING: Get ready for the ride of your life!

    I can only imagine the stir this would have caused, making us wonder exactly what kind of “ride” we were really in for? And of course, this would be after we found the strength to pick ourselves up off the floor after he stole our hearts with his performance.

  89. CindyUT says:

    BTW, sorry for the long post……

  90. IJust have to share with you.
    One of Lo Min said she had to leave from voting to go eat diner,
    They were having chuletas for dinner & its no joke, Ha, Ha,
    The Chile fans have a project to plant trees for Lo Min,s Birthday.
    Sounds familiar.

  91. GOING FOR MY 300 ON MUSQTONE. bb

  92. sarahhazel says:

    Break from EL poll…..and going for 300 here!!!
    REMEMBER, THIS ENDS 1/26/13!!!
    PLEASE TRY TO CAST UP TO 300 (OR MORE, IF YOU CAN) A DAY FOR DAVID!!!

    Really like your post, Cindy! :)

  94. CindyUT says:

    Thank you, sarahazel! :)

  95. sarahhazel says:

    David is less than 2,000 votes away from the 500,000-vote mark! :D

  96. CANDY, I LOVE YOUR POST TOO. SO TRUE! SO TRUE!

  97. Sarahhazel, got my 300.

  98. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Congrats to David for 300 days of service to the Mormon Church…..Can’t believe it has been 5 years since I fell head over heels for this sensitive, awkward, mature, funny, idealistic, wise beyond his years, good looking young man with the voice of an angel….He has certainly taken us on the ride of our lives and we will be riding high again in 2014…….And Candy….no need to worry…..David still won’t be home for Superbowl 2014…….Maybe they are saving Superbowl 2015 for a warm special place just so David can perform and WOW the world again……Miss Vicki

    Pastel…..Glad you are doing ok…praying for your recovery…..Miss Vicki

    Hey all,
    I can’t believe it’s been five years either. Time seriously flies. I was not in the greatest place back then; unemployed and near out of options in the job search and desperately needing an angel. Well, God must’ve heard my tears, because that night was the start of a turnaround. I starting getting a few interviews and had the one that would land me a job the day of the S7 finale. David’s positiveness and happiness gave a me a new perspective and showed me the light when I most needed it. I don’t even want to think of where I’d be without him.

    Thanks Lurks for the new pic. He is beautiful as ever and definitely getting tanner.
    P.S. Did anyone notice in the lists below the pics that they STILL can’t spell Archuleta correctly? LMAO. When will people realize there’s only one T.

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Just stopped by to say G’night, woke
    up at 3 this morning, so need to get to
    sleep a little early tonight.

  103. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    kimk…..Is David’s song with Lady V coming out soon???? What have I missed????Also…I just love the new Mission pic of David….He is so tan and healthy looking…..Miss Vicki

  104. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    angelbyside…..I will just have to remember #11394…..I will have to have that as my lucky number, password or locker combination or something like that…HA HA HA…..Miss Vicki

  105. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Oops….I meant Angelbymyside……Miss Vicki

  106. kimk says:

    Miss Vicki something is up but no clue what. ASCAP didn’t let me search songs or I just don’t know how to.
    would imagine if the song was coming out it would be registered.

  107. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth….Can’t even comprehend getting up that early…..Catch ya later….Miss Vicki

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

    kimk, link to Davids songs, I think:

    https://www.ascap.com/Home/ace-title-search/index.aspx

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

    Again, I say G’night.

    kimk, They probably wont post a song,
    until just before they release it. G’night!

    G’night Miss Vicki!

  110. Good Night Beth Sweet Dreams & ((HUGS)) to you and the boys

  111. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hey Miss Vicki! Can’t believe we’re here at the same time! Can’t believe it’s been 5 years since David’s audition…..what a ride….and the best is yet to come!! #DA2014

    Good night Beth! Sweet dreams!

  112. Miss Vicki Hi! I think that will be my lucky # too, #11394.

  113. Just 1000 votes away from 500,000 on EL

  114. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Hey VaBeachArchie….So glad we are all sharing this ride of our lives together…..Look out for more snow coming our way on Friday….Although I know you all usually don’t get the snow like we do in Richmond…..Miss Vicki

  115. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Hey guys…..I know this is random…..but I just gotta love David’s dorky smile in that second pic from the top in this post……..the one where he is wearing the gray jacket…..Miss Vicki

  116. Bychance says:

    Just stopping by to say Hi and then going to go vote a bit before bed.

    CindyUt…I love your warning post!…He sure is the master of stealing hearts and changing lives. He will probably never know how many hearts and lives he has influenced! So glad mine is one of them!

    Charlotte…enjoyed hearing how David helped you, too.

    Candy…I just have to say thanks for that great quote yesterday. It has stuck in my head all day……ha, which in and of itself is pretty remarkable!

    Sweet dreams Beth, and everyone.

    Oh, and Margy’s AI song poem thing up top!……that took some doing!….impressive!

  117. pocoelsy says:

    Hi there all,
    5 incredible years :) , the very first time I saw his face on my TV I thought “where has he been hiding all this while and why he hasn’t been discovered by peeps in Hollywood, he’s such a good looking young man as in fresh innocent and sweet !!!” and that even before I heard him sang!! the rest is history lol

    Joanie thanks for the great post, the 2 lead pic are so alike and different at the same time :) the same sparkly innocent smile….sighhh

    Pastel, good to hear you’re doing well ( thanks Joanie for the update) hope you have a speedy recovery and get back on your feet soon <3

    Margy's peom's beautiful and very clever, you're one talented Archie :)

    Voting on everything haha, we are so gonna get 500,000 vote for David today :D , so close now :) , but I think we need more peeps to tweet on "Shorty Awards" tho hehe.

  118. VaBeachArchie says:

    Moss Vicki…No snow so far this year at the beach…..would like it to stay that way! Grandkids would love it though….were in up state New York over the holidays and it snowed every day..LOVED it! Looking forward to 2014 …hope we’ll all be partying at a David concert and VIP! Stroudsburg seem like a life time ago!

  119. Bychance says:

    Miss Vicki……ahh….any of his smiles sorta melt my heart.

  120. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Just thinking about the fact that David had NO CLUE what would be in store for him in terms of his sucsess when he was in that line with his dad and aunt waiting to try out for American Idol….I think he surprised himself BIGTIME…..Talking about Waiting on the World to Change. Our lives changed forever and so did David’s….Just gotta contemplate on how he really, really didn’t expect this to happen to him…..Miss Vicki

  121. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello Bychance and pocoelsy!

  122. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Yes VaBeachArchie… I have fond memories of Stroudsburg….Gotta make sure David comes back to VA Beach or Richmond in 2014…..Miss Vicki

  123. pocoelsy says:

    Lurks,

    Thanks for the new pic, yeah he looks darker and healthy, love to see him pop up once in while so we can be sure that he’s doing well :)

    Charlott, thank you for sharing your story…it’s incredible that David’s helped all of us at some point for the past 5 years and counting, there’s something about him that’s so uplifting ..what do you call it ..”spirit” isn’t it , love his spirit :)

  124. pocoelsy says:

    Hello Miss Vicky, Va Beach, Linda, Bychance, Kimk, Candy :D , Ray,Sarahhazel and everyone else that still awake :) sorry if I miss someone’s name

    Welcome, Jim… soo… you will join Detactive Ray ehhh, we’re very well behave bunch haha until…!!!

  125. pocoelsy says:

    500,000+ on Foreign act :D

  126. Charlotte says:

    pocoelsy, absolutely it’s his spirit. One is touched by it just being near him. Wouldn’t be surprised if has his entire mission completely enchanted just as we are :)

    Miss Vicki, David definitely had no idea what was coming to him that day. He never even expected to get past the first round of tryouts at the stadium. The sweet surprise we saw on his face week after week was completely genuine :)

  127. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Yes pocoelsy…..Love David’s Spirit…..Miss Vicki

  128. jackryan4da says:

    We just reached 500k votes for David for the EL poll.

    Voting machines – that’s what the Archies are :)

    Thanks for the support!

    ps: Also, I saw a couple of Archies engaging the LMH fans in the EL chat box… defending that we do not pay for votes… I was hoping that none of us would dignify any of their inanities. Cos nothing good will come out of it. Oh well…

  129. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Yep Charlotte..I agree…..he was completely genuine in his surprise that he kept going on and on each week to eventually reach the finale…..Miss Vicki

  130. breanne says:

    I’m worn out from voting on these polls!! Good night everyone!

  131. Charlotte says:

    Night Breanne :) I’m gonna get off myself. Keep up the great work with the power voting :)

  132. VaBeachArchie says:

    Another vote on Chart Central ….then dreamland for me! Nana patrol at 6! Good night and sweet dreams!

  133. Bychance says:

    Hi guys….back again after voting while listening to Chili concert……the happy mission pic made want to see him again in Chili….300 days….way to go David! We’re still here for you!

    Charlotte, I so love watching David’s face each week on AI….one of my favorite things about it…..how genuinely amazed and surprised he is…it is priceless!!

    pocoelsy, that spirit that just radiates love and goodness.

    Now I really am going to bed. Good night FOD friends.

  134. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    Just ran accross that pic of David on the motorcycle…..Looks a little like James Dean to me…..Miss Vicki

  135. breanne says:

    1 more thing, then I really need to get off this computer! LOVE that mission picture of David!!!!!! He looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!! :)

  136. Miss Vicki@DA2014 says:

    breanne….I agree David looks amazing hot…..night all…..Miss Vicki

  137. Reading all your comments on the first time you all saw & heard David sing, brings me a lot memories too. Since his waiting for the world to change, i never in my wildest dreams thought my world would change so much. But all for the best, he gave me a reason to live and to enjoy everyday of my life. He is my Guardian angel, and i admire him so much. Mr Archuleta you are #1 in book.

  138. pocoelsy says:

    I agree, David’s surprise face was priceless on AI and on the Finale night mannn when I saw him so emotionally drained and sometimes looked like he’s going to faint at any second !!! gee I had this urge …like.. just wanna be there and hug him and said “you did great, everything’s alright”, when he comes back tho!! I just wanna see him comes to accept how brilliant and good looking he is …even for just a little, breaks my heart to him being so hard on himself !!

    By chance , I’ve never come across anyone who rediats happiness and goodness like David before he’s like a daisy or sunflower haha happy fresh and shiny <3

    Breanne, thanks for all the links, good night give your fingers a good rest, we still have a lot to do and a long way to go, may be by mid 2013 things will be quieter, hope not haha.

    Jackryan, we did good eh, if we try to win something for David, may be Kari would finally upload that "Dougie" vid for us, lol

  139. Watching the Betty White show. She is hilarious. I would’nt feel so bad getting old if i could be as sprite as her at her age.

  140. OoO says:

    Oh no Linda are u trying to show your age? Betty White shows haha I love that show and the Golden Girl if I am not wrong so funny.

  141. pocoelsy says:

    Linda, he’s #1 in mine too, he makes me happy just to see his pic, I’m hopeless lol

    I have to go out for a while, catch up with you all later. Goodnight/day wherever you are :)

  142. pocoelsy says:

    OoO

    Hi there…Sawad dee ka, haha we always miss each other don’t we ?
    I love the Golden girl too very funny :) now I really have to go, bye all.

  143. lessha says:

    I can’t believe it has been five years. David sure has been such a big part of my life. I have never ever followed anyone before but with David I just can’t seem to get enough. I’m so glad that he has been out 300 days. I remember last year at this time thinking how am I going to be with David gone. Now it has already been a year . Just thing next year at this time we will be planning his homecoming!

    My prayers are with Pastel. Hoping that all goes well for her.

  144. jhen says:

    Thanks for the picture Lurks, David look gorgeous and happy.

  145. OoO says:

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well this morning.

    Sorry kimk, about the link. I just typed Ascap, then entered Davids name on their search thingy, listed his name, on the right, an arrow, clicked on that, then it listed the songs he’s written. It said Northern Lights, but I didnt think David had a hand in writing that, confused,lol.
