As a special bonus for traveling from a far distance this weekend, we were given a special “door prize!” Good motto: Chocolate provided for those who travel~ “Works For Me!”

This acoustic version is a fave of mine~ It brings a whole new (vulnerable) sound to the song…I love both acoustic and studio renditions!! So sorry for the mid-vid “splice;” my recording unexpectedly stopped and I had to quickly resume recording.


Bridge Over Troubled Waters

My Little Prayer

First up the beautiful intro captured by Mary Lou

Be Still My Soul

David closed the Friday night event with a serene and sublime “Be Still My Soul” performance. He sang, I cried, and when he ended, we all stood and gratefully applauded.

Longtime fan and dear friend Karin aka @zerogravity1 became reacquainted with David last night after not seeing him live and in person for 6 years; his concert in Beaver Creek, CO in Dec. 2011,  being the last time.

I will not provide too many details today as we’re hoping that this lovely busy mom may share with us her own personal thoughts of the show and post concert “signing” in the days ahead….. no pressure, Karin… lots of pressure! πŸ˜‰  In the meantime, here are a few shots we stole while waiting behind her in line.

It was pure joy to watch as David immediately recognized and remembered Karin. He was so happy to see her and loved the chance given for a sweet few minutes to catch up on their big life moments of the past 6 years! ***STAY TUNED FOR MORE FROM KARIN***

Another Nice little PITS (Postcards In The Sky) Article/Promo from Christian Beats

David Archuleta Delivers ‘Postcards In The Sky’ Album October 20

Written by Herb Longs

Platinum-selling international pop star David Archuleta will release Postcards in the Sky on October 20. This is David’s first full-length project since 2013’s No Matter How Far. Fans can pre-order the16-track LP, here

postcardsintheskyThe album β€” released on Archuleta’s own Archie Music/Tone Tree Music β€” is one he started on after returning to the public eye following a two-year stint doing volunteer missionary work in Santiago, Chile. 

That experience, chronicled in songs like β€œNumb” and β€œSpotlight Down,” inspired Archuleta to change his approach to songwriting and go beyond his Top 40 roots. 

Here he focuses on honest, heartfelt lyrics that combine the process of self-reflection with the power of pop melodies.

Emily Farmer Speaks about Service and her 100yr old bf at TOFW!

If you’ve been at one of David’s shows over the past couple years, chances are you’ve seen Emily Farmer out working at the merch table. She’ll greet you with her 1000 megawatt smile and a friendly “hello” that warms your soul! She was on tour with  David, Kari and the Archuband (and David’s sister Amber, too) this past summer on the Orion Tour. 

And if you don’t already follow Emily on Instagram, (@EmilyFarmer) you definitely should. She brings that same warmth, positivity, and light through her posts and stories. She often shares her visits and adventures with her 100yr old bf, and the wisdom he shares.

Emily was asked last spring to join some of the Time Out For Women events to speak about “service” and her relationship with Mac. Watch below as she shared her story on the TOFW stage in Layton. <33333333


Team Archie Confirms 04/2018 Show in Woodlands, TX at Dosey Does!

Mary Lou offers a nice nod to the BBQ and Texans re: this show!


Evie Clair posts plans to be performing at Anasazi Event on 11/11 with David!

Evie Clair America's Got Talent performing Yours

Thanks so much to our awesome fb CEO DavidFT for passing this find along. Evie Clair (recent contestant/finalist on America’s Got Talent and new friend of David’s) posted on her fb page along with other appearance dates that she will be performing with David at the Anasazi Gala on November 11th. Evie has not been added yet to the Anasazi Gala site, but we’ll continue to check for her addition.

Could Evie also possibly be “The Special Guest” who will be appearing on tour with David in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Indianapolis? Speculation is always fun, but we’ll have to wait to see is it is Evie or another who will fill that spot.
