David also shared an Instagram post to introduce the video! Be sure to head over and leave a comment for him! 🙂
Hey guys! A lyric video for “Invincible” is out now with the release of the new album next week. As the song has a lot of personal meaning for me, I wanted to convey that a little more visually with all of you. Check out the video link in the bio now! I hope you enjoy it! “Postcards in the Sky” out Oct 20! #invincible #postcardsinthesky #lyricvideo

A Quick TOFW Roundup for now~
Please forgive this incomplete and quick post, but as I’m out of town with dear fan/friends and lacking sleep already, I’ll just share some highlights of this magnificent TOFW Atlanta night in pics, IGs, and vids with a better recap to be continued!
Fan-Family Here to Share TOFW together
Traveling from Toronto and Minnesota, Mary Lou and I happily came to visit a long-time dear Archie friend, Karin @Zerogravity1 and attend this TOFW event together.

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!”
We also met Brenda aka @Itsallbs2017 ! She is an awesome fan who additionally creates beautifully designed graphics on sm to help celebrate & promote David and his music! 🙂 Brenda actually met David with her granddaughter at THE WHITE HOUSE back in 2010 when David performed for the 2010 CMN Champions.
The Merch Table was well stocked with “BEGIN,” TOSOD,” and “My Little Prayer/ THE PRAYER” cds
The Forum was also well stocked with a sold-out crowd!!!
The Set list
David sang an abundant total of 9 songs last night; each performance was met with wild cheering and applause!
Glorious, True Colors, I’m Ready, Beautiful, Pride (In The Name Of Love), Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Invincible, My Little Prayer and Be Still My Soul. Below are some of the songs highlighted!

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
~The performance 🙂
Sooooooo very pretty! <3
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.
More Vids, IG’s, Pics etc
Love this IG post with a fun little “signing” story #momfansrock
So I was first to see David Archuleta and I got him to sign my bag and we talked for a sec while mom took a few pics. He laughed at my attempt to do the thumbs up pic. (YEAH FAIL! Lol) *** Then syd went! *** Then mom goes next and says “can u sign the bag on the pocket and now… I’m gunna take a selfie.” Then takes an actual selfie with him when she wasn’t supposed to! 😂 *** Then after the selfie she goes on to tell him, “I have a 19 year old daughter, and she’s a red head. Okay bye!” *** I can’t breathe. My mom actually said all of these things to David Archuleta. I’m dead. 😂😍👌❤️

A beautiful “Zerogravity” reacquaintance
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! 😉 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***
Just Days Away until Postcards In The Sky!!!!!
Check out this wonderful festive graphic by Gwen! Are you ready???
I’m going to close this post and publish so that it’s not Sunday before y’all see it! 🐢 <—me
Kalei will have more tidbits to add from the TOFW event on Monday, but hope this gives you a good caption of the lovely event last night! This upcoming week will be off to a very busy start as David will be arriving in the Philippines, followed by the release of Postcards In The Sky on Friday with the big concert that same night!!!
Wishing everyone a happy weekend, and wishing David, Kari, Team Archie, and the Archuband safe travels in the days ahead!
