Happy New Year!

What a year it was! 2016 saw David travel Internationally, perform at several TOFW events, collaborate with James the Mormon on Workin, debut his two new songs – Numb & My Little Prayer – and their accompanying music videos.  He started performing concerts, mostly in Utah and Idaho, then branched out further on his Christmas Tour with visits to Indy, Arizona and California!

We wait with great anticipation for the release of his new album in early 2017 – which starts TODAY! After the album debut, we’re hoping for a full-blown concert tour across the entire U.S. and hopefully Internationally!

This is a vacation post, so it will be short, but we want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year filled with health, happiness and the love of family and friends! It will be nine years that we’ve been supporting David and his music – we’re excited for everything to come!

Thanks to everyone who contributed and continues to contribute to this fandom with pics, vids, fan stories and links to David information from all over social media! We couldn’t do it without you! We love this fandom and can’t imagine a better place to hang out and “park” with fellow Archies & Arch Angels! :-)

And here. No neatly pressed shirt, no jacket and tie.  I have a feeling it’s all comfort on David’s special day.  I Love this screenshot from David’s epic IG story during The Voice earlier this year.  Hope it’s all happy smiles for David’s special day!

Lovely words from Kari.  She always has the right thing to say.  And we are sooooo thankful to have her on the A team!!!!  And boss/friend is so accurate!

Another look at Kari’s collage!


The celebrations started in Sacramento!

Kalei was there and gave us a great recount of events, including a recount of a double birthday celebration with Bobby James!

Check out 5:45 for the Happy Birthday to David and Bobby James in Sacramento.  And listen to Ave Maria while you are at it!
