David at Youth Leadership Conference in Waterloo, Canada

David was the keynote speaker for the LDS Youth Conference in Canada this year.   We would not normally post about a private, non-fan event but David provided the details on Instagram yesterday and so we are providing social media updates from accounts that are not private.

From David’s IG on Friday.

David spoke and sang.   Here is a posting of Invincible.  What a treat acoustically.  And the audience did a “nice” job!   The volume might be off for these FB vids, check bottom right to make it loud!

Forever.   I don’t know this song but it’s simply beautiful!   Joanie was very excited when she heard he sang this!

The audience participation with Glorious is glorious!!!  I was very impressed with how well the audience sang!  


The screams from Crush are crushing!  

By all accounts, it was  a very successful event.  

Thank you again for coming to Canada, David and Kari.  

As a Canadian, my heart is so full in that David had what seemed like a positive visit here.  I am  fiercely proud of my city, Toronto, and our country, and we want to show it off and share it with David and the world!   Of course a concert would be awesome one day too.  But baby steps.  I’m confident this trip opened the door to moving that forward at the right time.  

And when that day comes, we want all of you reading this to join us too!!!!

Who Got Tickets!

It was a stressful day as folks wanted to get their tickets for the first set of fall David Archuleta concerts.  So, how did you do??

Oh man, this is so accurate!

And then we have fans who had an opinion on the concert support …

And summing it was Holly.  She has a way of doing that ….

And ticket sales are moving along nicely!

Making friends (and trying new food) wherever he goes …

David is always one to use a sideways turn to his advantage.  Gotta love his attitude.

As Found aRound

I think this might officially end my vacay week!  Whewww, I hate to think of what it would have been like on a regular week πŸ˜‰  Unless something urgent comes up tomorrow (I think I already said that once this week lol), see you in a few weeks!  Get ready to by #Leo on Friday Aug. 25th!  Can’t wait to hear the songs!

David Takes Canada!

David was in my home town!!!  And doing business no less!  Here is a little photo-mentary (I made that up) of his travels!

Looks like David Archuleta and Kari Sellards landed in Toronto and headed to Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto on Tuesday evening, and then participated in a children’s camp on Wednesday morning.  Here’s our Youtube video:

The Stop advertises it’s summer camp as follows:

Kids from the ages of 6-14 are invited to participate in the only Pop Star Boot Camp of its kind in Canada.

Hosted by Jasmine Denham (Musical Director and Vocal Coach of YTV’s THE NEXT STAR)and THE STOP, kids and teens will have the opportunity to be mentored by some of the industry’s finest Musicians, Choreographers, Actors and Producers.

Campers will write, sing and record songs, learn choreographed routines, make a music video and short film, learn to play a song as a band, and put on a live show on the last day of camp.

In addition to this fantastic line up of activities, they will be treated to special performances and workshops from local musicians and top Music Industry insiders!

They also tweeted their Thank You to David!

Later, a little trip into the city is recorded.  This makes me so happy to see!!!!!

Kari mentions that the team has moved closer to downtown into the Orange Recording Studio!  Whaaaaaaat???

Here’s where she was, in downtown TO!

David was doing business in Toronto yesterday!  

From Cymba Music (see below):

About CymbaMusic

So thrilled David is in Toronto on a business trip, with a music publisher.  This is fantastic news and the fact his publisher is in Canada is icing on the cake!

Who is Cymba?

From their website:

CYMBA is an acronym for Crushing Your Music Business Apathy. Cymba is an internationally renowned boutique publisher led by industry veteran and pop music visionary Vincent Degiorgio.

With a headquarters in Toronto and a mindset that’s global – the foundations of CYMBA are built on the power of pop music that brings people together. CYMBA stands apart, infusing genres with new possibilities, crafting original and unforgettable melodies, and championing a diverse catalogue of international pop artists and writers.

CYMBA has always been forward thinking, bucking trends and looking ahead to create masterful songs that the global music community needs.  

Landing innumerable placements across the globe and leading with a writer – first mentality, the CYMBA team has had songs written in over 11 different languages, with tracks featured in domestic and international films and television shows, as well as advertisements around the world.


The music industry needs innovation and publishers are in many ways the new record labels. Bringing together burgeoning and legendary talent under one roof, Vincent and the CYMBA team have been involved with innumerable songwriting workshops, publishing and sync conferences, and industry initiatives to keep music progressive and build a lasting career for talent.


Hand-selected and highly eclectic, CYMBA’s team of songwriters and artists are united in their passion for the universal language of music and their drive to connect with listeners personally. When joining the roster, songwriters and artists become part of a family.

CYMBA’s maxim with our team: build a musical community that is timeless.

Famous Sync & Songwriting Placements:

Caro Emerald, as heard on The Vampire Diaries, Agent Marvel, Pretty Little Liars, Disney’s Chimpanzee and in wide release European advertising campaigns for Peugeot and Ferrero Rocher.

Boss & Swan, as heard in the Twisted Twins cult classic, American Mary.

Additional placements include Reebok, T-Mobile, BBC The Voice 2016 adverts, and theatrical trailers for The Fantastic Mr. Fox and 2016’s Bad Moms.

I’m excited for the prospect of music placement, if that’s what David would like to do, but it’s fabulous exposure to audiences you may not normally reach.  The Civil Wars, The Script, and many others have had tremendous exposure of their songs when placed in the right TV, Movie or Commercial 

And where is David on the website?

And a bit about it’s founder, Vincent Digiorgio

Vincent Degiorgio is the president and founder of Chapter 2 Productions Inc., which houses the publishing entities Cymba Music Publishing, InterCym Music and The Billy Ray Louis Music Publishing Company.

He is a former International A&R VP at RCA and was responsible for signing N Sync in the US and is the owner and operator of the oldest dance music label in English speaking Canada, Power Records Inc.

His works have been recorded in 11 different languages in innumerable countries around the world, ranging from Canada to Korea, Sweden to South Africa, with sales exceeding thirty million units. He has written for international superstars such as Japan’s NEWS and Chemistry, Taiwan’s Jolin Tsai and Show Lo, German Idol winner Fady Malouf and pop rockers Aloha From Hell of Germany. He has had two top 5 singles in Japan with male pop band LEAD amongst his cuts. Domestically, his next single will be Brooklyn Roebuck’s forthcoming β€œOne Of These Days”.

Vince’s passion has always been a great song, and his formation of Cymba Music Publishing is what he calls ‘a determined defiance to conventional publishing’. Cymba, an acronym for ‘crushing your music business apathy’ houses a unique, boutique roster of some of Canada’s most creative and artful professionals.

His advocacy work continues as a member of the board of directors of the Songwriters Association of Canada, where he is directly involved as the producer of the “Songworks” songwriting camps. In addition, he is the outgoing chair of the Juno Awards dance music committee, and serves on the advisory board of MROC.

Away from the industry, Vincent is a rabid sports fan who follows his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs hockey club, and has continued to foster his love for Japanese baseball. You can follow him on twitter @chaptwo and @cymbamusicpub
