David With a Beautiful Pic and Thanksgiving Wishes for all!!

 

Thankful for my family! I love having a day where we can reflect on all the things we’re thankful for. I am thankful for these sisters and brother of mine, for my parents and family, for my friends, for time to be with them, for God and His goodness, for the mountains, trees, rivers, and nature I can go to feel close to Him and find myself. I’m thankful for the people I work with and the good character each of them has. I’m grateful for the music in my life that brings me new friends, new experiences, and new creative opportunities. I’m thankful for the audience and fans like you it has brought as well to be able to share this journey with and I hope it motivates or even inspires each of you in someway to look forward and be thankful for your journey in life and what it has to offer. This life is beautiful, and may we take time to look around at what it has to offer us so we may learn and become better. Thank you everyone and have a happy thanksgiving! #thanksgiving #family #happythanksgiving #thankful

David on IG~ New Songwriter Intro Segment

David shared a new Instagram post yesterday introducing us to more of the songwriters involved with Postcards In The Sky!
Stephanie Mabey, Camille Nelson, Dustin Christiansen, and .

 

At the Salt Lake show I had the privilege of these 4 songwriters who wrote on #postcardsinthesky being there: On the left is Taylor Hartley and then to the right of me is Stephanie Mabey. The 3 of us wrote the song “Invincible.” Next to Stephanie is Dustin Christensen. Stephanie, Dustin and I wrote the songs “Seasons” and “Aiming for Hope.” Some of you might recall my 2nd post ever on Instagram (which I’ve added on here again) which was when, I believe, we wrote “Seasons.” On the right is Camille Nelson who helped write “Spotlight Down” and was the one who actually made that writing session happen. (EDIT- K.. idk why Camille was cut out of the picture suddenly! She was there when I tagged her! But go to the last photo and you’ll see her!!!!-END-) So glad I get to write with amazing writers like these! I also have to thank Stephanie Mabey for writing the song #Glorious that I sing at every show. It has become a signature song for me and has changed my course of where to take my music and career. It reminds me of the power of music with a message and how my goal is to help people find the part that they play. We just need to keep listening, and pretty soon we’ll start to figure out our part. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s to making more great music everyone! #songwriting #songwriters #musiccreators

These intros have been like small nuggets of gold received over the past couple of weeks. They’re a wonderful pseudo alternative to liner notes in a cd. The backstories and insights into the collaborative writing and producing aspects of Postcards In The Sky have been both informative and greatly appreciated!Thank you, David!

A few words of thanks~

As David Archuleta fans, on this holiday, there is more to be thankful for than I could succinctly say in a short piece. This past year has been an exciting year as we’ve watched David grow as a person and as an artist. We’ve received 2 new EPs (Orion and Leo) and a full cd (Postcards In The Sky) filled with beautiful music and messages that have shared an important piece of David’s personal journey, and his heart! 

His recent tours have been incredible: fun, uplifting, inspirational, and completely fulfilling! (And still a couple more shows to go this year!!!) His message of hope and desire for people to “look up” is relevant, needed, and resonating!  I know he hasn’t been able to get everywhere, but I believe he’s just getting started and his team are working on it!! I’m so incredibly grateful for the efforts of Kari, Gina, David, and the rest of Team A!! 

David is “NOT GOING AWAY,” folks, and that alone is enough for today’s celebration!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

On a more personal note, I am humbled, daily, by the infinite number of blessings in my life. I am truly thankful! For family, friends, faith, food, fun times, challenges, love, loss, setbacks, and also hopefully the growth I’ve experienced, I am grateful.

There is tragedy, negativity, and uncertainty found throughout our world today, but there is also so much good!!  And as a David Archuleta fan, through his music, messages, and fan community, I’m reminded of  what is “good”~ to look toward the light and to keep looking up. For that I am blessed!

Thanks today, too, to my wonderful team partners (Mary Lou and Kalei, and David on fb) Love you all, and Iโ€™m so grateful to work with such beautiful people who have such endless energy and who are always there to offer encouragement, and support. I learn more from each of you than youโ€™ll ever know, and I couldnโ€™t love and appreciate you more!! And you are so much more than teammates; you are dear, beautiful personal friends!!!  Thank you~

To all of you fan/friends and readers, thanks so much for stopping by our site and/or hanging out with us! We MODS, are all so very grateful  for each of you,  for your kind words spoken and for the support consistently shown to us here on FOD.  It means the world to us!!! 

Wishing each of you a day filled with love and laughter, whether itโ€™s shared with family and friends, or here with our online family.  Sending out a giant โ€œ hugโ€ across the miles to each and every one of you!

*******

More to come so stay tuned!

Just getting this mini post up before preparing for family and friends to arrive , but I’ll be back with more.  For now, I’ll close with a dose of “hope” on this day of thanksgiving whether you’re in the US formally celebrating, or anywhere else reflecting on all you have and all you’re aiming for.”  (sorry about the vid quality as there was a lot of “light” on stage in KC… both literally and figuratively. ๐Ÿ˜‰

David welcomes us back to Abravanel

Abravanel Hall is filled with many emotions and memories, for David, his family, friends, and also for the fans. David addressed these past memories and his mission announcement (six years ago) before the show, allowing everyone to personally revisit their feelings then get ready to celebrate his return to this stage.

That announcement in 2011 was the beginning of a six year journey: a journey of faith, service, reflection, growth, and healing. All played a part in bringing him to where he is now and to the person he is now.  David is back sharing new music, living in his own skin, and he is happy! It’s a good place.

Pre Show IG stories

David Through the Day!
Dear David,
we absolutely love your instagram stories filled with daily wisdom, (infrequent) rants, world’s-best giggles (Kari’s too) and sessions of car karaoke! Please never stop! Lovingly and gratefully, your fans. ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

My recordings are not yet smooth and pristine, but I’m working on it and “and I know I’m gonna get there,” hopefully, one day soon. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yesterday’s IG stories from David took us from preconcert TV movies and lizards, to car karaoke, a re-introduction to Abravanel Hall, random flying tape balls, recordings from sweet Kari, and back home again with more karaoke and lovely thanks for Utahans!

Set List~ Thanks a million to Shelley for sending a pic!!!

A Few Vids~ Please check for more on Shelley’s channel:

Spotlight Down!

The preamble for this song was so funny! David wanted to recognize Camille Nelson as one of the collaborators on the song. He beckoned for her to and even broke into singing in attempt to find her! Unfortunately, She was a bit late getting to the venue and just missed his calling and the Spotlight Down performance. She was happy though that Shelley had recorded it!We decided that maybe a future song might be “Where are you Cami?” ;D

Seasons~
An ethereal duet and feel. David and Madilyn’s voices blend beautifully. They are both incredibly talented and their live performance mirrors the studio version with absolutely nothing lacking. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stephanie’s “Live Crush” Tweet Gone Viral!! 


This vid RT count just keeps climbing and climbing! A few fans shared the vid for Team A to see but yesterday was a busy day with much of their time taken up by pre-show prep etc. The little “Live Crush” tweet that could continued to climb in RT counts and “replies. To be honest, I’ve never watched a popular tweet climb as the time passes yet it a fascinating thing! Anyway. After the show last night, David reposted Stephanie’s tweet and the vid with an incredibly clever response!

And Stephanie soon saw it!!!

Then she REALLY saw it!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚


Amazing to watch how a little Live Crush goes viral in real time!
Currently the “likes” and RTs are somewhere in the 36K range!!!

Currently this vid/ tweet  has ~ 62K likes and ~ 42K RTs!!!! And from an account where she follows 263 accts and has 500 followers!!! She has reached a huge number of people with a performance and song that’s plain and simple well liked and relatable! I remember when David released his first baby and talked about the fact that most everyone can “relate” to that feeling in life of having a “Crush.” 

A few of the messages added with RT’s are both sweet and entertaining~

David On Twitter~ 

Sweet Surprise Tweets~

David is not taking any time away after his fall tour ended last night. His presence was felt on twitter already today as well as some cool fan “likes” on his instagram posts!

David speaks a lot about “light” and the “gals who can turn a lightbulb on in David” ~ Today his tweets to his old 2009 pal from the UK tour, Tom Fletcher (McFly) , were very complimentary towards Tom’s wife. <3 and David also bought Tom’s book written for children! ๐Ÿ˜

Here’s Tom’s book that David ordered. (Click below)

David Also checked in with Jason Mraz and Sara Bareilles with a compliment and encouragement!

Jackson Archuleta Five ~ A Post by Jazzy

David’s Sister Jazzy shared a beautiful post on Instagram letting the world know how very much she loves her siblings and how uniquely each enriches her life. ๐Ÿ™‚
Archuleta siblings- Amber, Daniel, Jazzy, David, Claudia- credit Jazzy on IG@jahzey The Jackson  Archuleta 5 on Instagram
Just a quick run down on how amazing each of my siblings are:
Claudia: I donโ€™t have a single memory where she hasnโ€™t been there for me through the good and bad. Her loyalty and dedication to someone she loves blows me away.
David: The most incredible listener I have ever known. I look up to his wisdom and counsel so much and his testimony of the savior is a rock to me. Part 1/2 of what I look for in a husband.
Daniel: Easily has the biggest heart out of everyone in my family. He always finds the joy in the simplest of things and knows how to always maintain the peace. Part 2/2 of what I look for in a husband.
Amber: My partner in crime, the yin to my yang, the Gon to my Killua. She has grown and matured so much since my mission and sees the good in everyone. The perfect example of Christlike charity.
* * * * *
I’m going to stop here…for now, because there is still more to sift through and I’d really like to get this post published!! There will be more to come, but here’s a good bit to get you going during this Thanksgiving holiday week! WE are present on Twitter, Facebook with DFT, and I’ll be adding some Instagram treats throughout the week as well. Enjoy your evening (afternoon or morning) wherever you may be
