David Archuleta ~ Saturday in Serbia Update! We Can’t Help Falling In Love With You! Lots of Love From Slovenia! We’ve Got Vids!! Welcome to Belgrade!


Saturday Update 05/14/16

There are so many ArchuGoodies being posted – I’m going to update the post!

My Little Bongo



Kendra posted this wonderful pic on Instagram! I love that they’re going to bring some energy to the Serbian audience!  I was thinking a little ZG would do wonders for International Relations! However, Kendra’s clues of  “African grooves”, “a piano lid to drum on” and… wait for it… “a child’s bongo played by @davidarchie”! Leads us to believe that they’ll be performing He Lives In You.

David Has Periscope!

Kari said she was going to try and get David to open his own Periscope account, and by golly he did!  He posted a live streaming of what first appeared to be Everybody Hurts, which through the magic (or trickery) of technology, morphed into PANDA! Hey, David’s on Periscope – we’ll take ANYTHING – and EVERYTHING!

If you were waiting for a magic moment to join Periscope, then here it is! Download the app and follow @DavidArchie  - he’s got 111 followers so far… will you be 112?

For those of you who are “not into technology” or believe that Periscopes belong only on submarines, it’s your lucky day because dedicated fan Shadowbenny converted it to You Tube.

The Serbian audience apparently didn’t get the memo that it is customary to wave your cell phones in the air during PANDA…. who was supposed to send that memo? You’re FIRED! :-) (maybe I’m fired lol)

A “Mom Story” aka “A Fan Story”

Attending a David concert is an amazing experience, but getting a backstage pass to meet him is AH-MAY-ZING!  This family got the golden ticket and went backstage after the performance last night to meet the artists – including David! 

Her story is fun, funny and oh so familiar – we know the feeling!

She’s a newbie – so we’ll forgive the extra “T” :-D

tammiringger: We were lucky enough to watch David Archuletta and Paul Cardall preform in Ljubljana tonight in a concert to benefit and bring awareness to the Heart Foundation of Slovenia. We got really lucky and snagged back stage passes to meet the artists however I learned something new about myself. I have crossed over….I have become “story-telling mom”. You know the type…the mom that tells the whole story to person who they just met and who could care less about the story. Bystanders can see the listeners eyes glaze over with the look of “I could care less about your story lady” however “story-telling mom” is oblivious to such visual cues. That was me tonight as I told David Archuletta about how I loved watching him on American Idol and then continued to blab on and on about the details of Jackson watching and how he got so excited to see him preform and insisted we vote….every time. David was just as sweet and polite in person as he was when Simon would completely rip him apart and therefore seemed amused by my story however walking away I had this epiphany that I had joined the ranks of moms who think everyone loves a good story. I mean honestly….I know better! There is a time and a place for such storytelling like Instagram and Facebook so those who could really care less can give it a double-tap and move on and those who do care can sit and read your story in its entirety! I needed an intervention from the one person who would have dragged me away and slapped me until I came to my senses….I needed one of my sisters! #seriouslyneededanintervention #icouldntstopmyself #wherewasmyselfawareness

A Treat from Tina

We Can’t Help Falling In Love with David’s rendition of this classic Elvis love song. There was a snippet of it on Kari’s Periscope and almost the whole version on @Jinmaru ‘s YT vid.  Through the wizadry of technology, Tina has crafted an mp3 that blends the two audios into a whole song! Thanks Tina!

Looking forward to a vid of He Lives In You with David playing the child’s bongo – oh PLEASE let there be a vid! Kari – we hope you’re Periscoping!

That’s it for now for this Saturday update – if you guys see more pics, vids or anything about our favorite artist – let us know via email, twitter, facebook or in comments!  Have a great weekend!

Kendra posted this fun pic on her IG page – it’s a gondola ride in Slovenia! If David serenaded the group with I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You, that would pretty much be perfection!

An Evening of Music & Love

Screen Shot 2016-05-13 at 11.38.15 PM

It was a Sold Out crowd at the Ljubljana Opera House as people filled the beautiful venue in support of the Slovenia Heart Foundation which supports medical care for children with congenital heart disease. It was a night of heartfelt music as people opened their hearts to help heal the hearts of Slovenia’s children.

Kari posted a few Periscope vids that had the fandom squealing with delight! A beautiful duet of The Prayer, where David sang in Italian - a romance language!

– click to listen – Hurry!

Then David got his Elvis on!  In a deep, rich voice brimming with emotion, David had the audience, and us, in the palm of his hand!

Then, of course, a glorious version of Glorious!

As Twitter exploded with all manner of begging and pleading for a full version of these vids, our prayers were answered in the late hours of the night Hawaii time and the wee hours of the morning on the East Coast.

A fan from Slovenia, who attended the event, tweeted a few 30-second snippets of some vids – the audio is so clear and there was David standing on stage surrounded by an orchestra, with Paul Cardall on the piano!

In the great American spirit of “It never hurts to ask”, I tweeted the question that everyone had on their mind:

And because I must have been a very good girl sometime in my life, a short time later I received several tweets that included links to You Tube Vids! These aren’t 100% complete vids, but they’re significantly longer than 30-seconds!  So with no further ado, here they are!

Well David just tweeted a pic of himself at the Belgrade airport!  He’s having another performance tonight at the Children’s Cultural Center in Belgrade – if you happen to be in Serbia ;-)  Hopefully there’ll be some fans in attendance who can share some pics and vids!

Thanks to @jinmaru for sharing their vids with us – it’s so wonderful to see David’s music bringing people together from all over the world to support a good cause! Enjoy the vids and stay tuned for more from Belgrade – if we’re lucky!

For any rabid music fan, there’s a sort of grieving process that follows an event as momentous as seeing a favorite band live. It’s often referred to as “post-concert depression” around the web, and it goes a little something like this.

Phase One: Euphoria
These are the remnants of what you felt while standing front row, singing (possibly crying) along to your favorite song. It enfolds you into the night, past the merch table and onto the sidewalk where you’ll either choose to battle traffic, or wait by a fence near their bus hoping your favorite musicians come outside to say, “Hello.” Euphoria will extend if you do the latter.

Sounds like David and Kari are having a great time in Slovenia!  Of course they found Pad Thai lol!  Loved the snippet vid of rehearsals posted by Paul Cardall – hopefully we get some full vids of the performance!

Stay tuned cause I’ll be updating the post with any new pics or vids as our ArchuSleuths find them on social media.  If you find something to share, let us know via Twitter, email or in comments!
