David offers support and spreads the word on Nepal earthquake tragedy

David Retweeted info from the International Committee of the Red Cross and lent his support in getting the message out to his fans in the wake of one of the worst earthquakes in 80 years for that region.  The magnitude 7.9 earthquake that struck near Kathmandu, Nepal, has caused widespread devastation and resulted in immediate humanitarian needs for people in the region.

If you go to the missing relative site, it’s heartbreaking to see all the individuals listed by family members as missing.  I hope it’s just a matter of time before they find a way to register online.

Here is a map of the epicentre.  The earthquake also set off a number of avalanches on Mount Everest, which was experiencing its seasonal peak for climbers.



If you are Canadian, know that our government will match each donation.  Click here for more info: Canada Red Cross

Ticket prices are slightly higher than for Tuacahn, but still VERY AFFORDABLE!  The General Admission option at $29 to sit on the grassy area behind the seats sounds like a great option too.

It’s National Tell A Story Day


National Tell A Story Day is celebrated in the United States each year on April 27th.   This is a day that was created for people to get together to tell stories of all kinds.  They can be stories from a book, from memory or from your imagination.

Libraries around the country participate in National Tell A Story Day with special story telling times for children.

Telling stories of past generations is a good way to carry on traditions within one’s family as well as being interesting and educational. Some of the very best stories are ones that are told of about past experiences and adventures.

Many people enjoy listening to their grandparents share their stories about when they were growing up (back in the day).  Spending time telling stories with family, friends and loved ones is a time for all to learn from each other, to remember and to grow closer together.

On National Tell A Story Day, it does not matter if the story is a short story or a long story, fiction or nonfiction, a tall tale or a folk-lore, this is a day for them all.  We encourage you to tell your stories and even share them on social media using #NationalTellAStoryDay.

Stories from David

- Reading to RSO Children in India

– Reading to RSO Children in India

David has told us many stories over the years, from the detailed recount of his life in his memoirs, Chords of Strength to stories of his dreams.  I thought I would share a few images with you in this post, which includes reading with children at Rising Star Outreach charity in India, the visit to the school with Sunny to read with children, and one of my favourite “stories” of a dream of David’s in Elevator.  I included both the Regis and Kelly recount of David’s dream, and the wickedly groovalicious Z100 performance.  The last one has to rate as one of the best radio performance ever.

Zinepak:  For Uber Fans Only

While I was watching Shark Tank on Friday night, that show where entrepreneurs get the chance to get their dream projects funded by business tycoons, there was a segment on a company called Zinepak, that offered to Superfans more of what they wanted when buying the CD of their artist of choice.

Here’s how they advertise themselves:

“Your favourite CDs, made even better with exclusive magazines and collectible merchandise”

Check out the site here:  www.zinepak.com

Zinepak has partnered with a wide variety of artists, and there definitely is an American Idol connection!

mccreery zinepak

ai zinepak 1

ai zinepak 2

For Mumford and Sons, customized tickets were created.

mumford and sons

For the uber traveller, there is a Tour Passport!

tour passport

For Lindsay Stirling, Zinepak created a Coffee Table book!!!  Awesome idea!

lindsey stirling

Looks like Zinepak obtains exclusive interviews and related merchandise based upon what superfans might be interested in.

mkoc-tour-vip-t-shirtThe creative isn’t particularly grand but the graphics are clean and crisp and sure to please a wide variety of fans.

Anyway, on Shark Tank, the owners did get two investors to kick in a total of $750K for expansion!  That’s a massive win!  Wonder if they need any help????

Could you see anything like this every coming to fruition for David?

Is yes, what would you like to see?  Check out their site for ideas and let us know in comments!

  1. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning guys! HAPPY new week!

    Thanks Pastel for the Get Ready, Set, Monday post! GREAT way to start the day with a Matt Clayton pic of David! Wonder who will be doing the pics for the NEW music? To all trying for Layton tickets today….GOOD LUCK! Another SELL OUT ??

    Nana patrol! ENJOY your day! Another month almost gone!

  2. kimk says:

    Pastel good morning!

    lucky Utah peeps who can go!!

    • VaBeachArchie says:

      Hope we soon get to try for tickets to a concert….my chances are getting slimmer! So many other things being planned for the summer and early fall!

      • kimk says:

        might be we miss David this time around.. could very well be he is having a hard time getting venues to play at.
        whatever it is happy at least knowing there will be videos, pics and stories from Utah!!!

        • VaBeachArchie says:

          Hard to believe that with all the support shown in NY, PA and the East in the past ….it would be hard to schedule shows!

  3. potluck8 says:

    Good morning VaBeachArchie and Kimk. keep hoping that either Kari or Gina will drop us a hint as what they meant when they wrote. wait to see what is coming.I just hate it when they give us a tease and keep us hanging.

  4. angelbymyside says:

    Morning everyone 😀

    Thanks Pastel for today’s wonderful post.

    Love the Zinepak idea of the coffee-table book for “uber fans”.

    I hope concert dates outside of the state of Utah are announced soon. I just got tix to see Josh Groban when he comes to Philly in September to promote his new album. I’m trying to hold back from buying concert tix for summer concerts, as I’m waiting for David to release his concert dates. Sure hope he does this sooner than later.

    • VaBeachArchie says:

      Think we are all holding back….have been doing the same! Have vacation in limbo “waiting” to see where and when! Hope it works out!

  5. kimk says:

    ha well I would just do what you wish even move on David is just going to do as he wishes so why not any of his fans.

  6. kimk says:

    could very well be David has been black-listed due to all the hub bub as of late..

  7. kimk says:

    who me lol no happy for the vids. just saying do as you wish David is.

    • Martha says:

      If he is having trouble getting venues, then it’s not him moving on. I really don’t see any indication of him moving on. Seems to me he is working very hard on writing, the new album, etc. We mustn’t have short memories. We were told they are working on other states.

  8. angelbymyside says:

    Kim ~ Why do you think fans would want to move on? Did I miss something?

  9. kimk says:

    haven’t been to another concert since Stoudsburg.. not going anywhere.
    just talking about ‘others’

  10. kimk says:

    like folks waiting for something better then Myrtle Beach and then a huge void.. it is what it is for me at least know there will be videos from Utah.

  11. Martha says:

    I don’t think fans need to move on at all. Everything seems very much alive to me. It really isn’t that hard to wait, just keep yourself busy with other things. Frankly, I think this is what most are doing until something surfaces. No biggie.

    PS – I really don’t think he has been black-listed. The controversy died down as quickly as it arose.

  12. angelbymyside says:

    Well I hope the rest of the concert dates will pop up in May. I know in my case, I have to put in for my vacation time a few months out. It’s difficult trying to save time especially when you don’t know when/where the concerts will be taking place.

  13. VaBeachArchie says:

    Heading to work! Will this be the lucky day we get a tweet, clue or news to celebrate! Or maybe THIS week? #DA2015Dreaming

    David Archuleta retweeted IFRC

    “@RedCross: Here’s the latest update from #Nepal, if you’d like to help visit: http://rdcrss.org/NEPAL1 https://twitter.com/Federation/status/592602504589893632 …”

  15. angelbymyside says:

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie

    Devastating to see the continued aftermath for #Nepal. Simple things make a difference, whether a small donation or being a prayer away

    • Anne-Marie says:

      Hey Maureen! I know what you mean knowing ahead of time about concert dates. For the Westbury MKOC show, the tickets went in sale the VERY SAME DAY that it was announced. (VIP) I was at school and there was no way I was going to be free when the tix went on sale. So I had make an excuse that I had to go home. Lol. I never do that so it was a bit nerve wracking!

  19. nora says:

    so sad to see the devastation in Nepal, took up a collection in church yesterday. Got my DVD of MTM watched it last night, thought it was very well done. I wonder if the Humanitarian and his family that lives in Nepal, who was featured in MTM, are safe. My heart goes out to all the victims and their families.

  20. Ali says:

    Usually his tweets aren’t put on his FB page (just the IG posts) so I’m glad to see the one about Nepal was added along with a link to help if you can.

  21. kimk says:

    nice to see that it still says a CD in 2015

    • cq says:

      Waving hi and welcome back Kimk. YES, so happy to read that a CD is still schedule to be released in 2015. Now the question, before concerts or after, 🙂

      • kimk says:

        oh good question think Kari said concerts will be old, new and now music maybe even different songs for different shows?
        lol got me!!
        just hoping for a concert I can go to and he sings. 😀

  22. IMO says:

    Hi folks. Can’t wait to get david new CD. My thought and prayers go out to Nepal earthquake.

  23. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Two more concerts for David showing up on the Windish Agency site. Sept 17 and 18 (Thurs/Friday) in Idaho Falls at the Colonial Theater. http://www.windishagency.com/artists/david_archuleta

  24. Ali says:

    Thanks for the heads up, Janel! Hopefully this means more dates will start being posted. The Idaho shows are right before the Layton show. I’m gonna imagine this means they’re working on a schedule…a girl can dream 😉

  25. supergrandjudie #DA2015 says:

    Hi All. Haven’t been here in a while. Nice post Pastel. Sure need a concert here on the East coast. Hi Kim, welcome home. So very sad for the devastation in Nepal. David must be done making music because Victoria Horne went back to England. So is it official, does David reside in Nashville?? His family moved to Layton, at least that is what Jazzy tweeted. Things are a-changing. Time marches on. Can’t wait for David’s new music.

    • Anne-Marie says:

      Hi SGJ,
      Maybe he’s finished writing with Victoria Horn but perhaps is still collaborating with other writers. 🙂 I would have thought he’d write with Joy Williams again but I have no idea what she’s been doing since The Civil Wars broke up.

      Hoping for an East coast announcement too!

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      It’s not that huge of a move. Just a 30 minute drive North of Murray on the I-15. Not like they’re moving to Southern Utah in St. George or to another state. It takes me 30 minutes to get to Murray (or 25 if I’m not watching my speed. shhh, don’t tell). It wouldn’t be hard for Jazzy, Amber, Lupe, etc. to head South on the freeway for a half hour to go visit friends and old neighbors. They lived there for a long time since David was about 5 or 6, so I’m sure they developed close relationships with friends along the way.

  26. supergrandjudie #DA2015 says:

    Anne-Marie, That could be. Guess we’ll find out eventually. Nothing else to do but wait. Sigh

  27. muldur says:

    Joy Williams has released a new single, is doing three pre-album release shows at which she will sing her new songs, has an album called Venus coming out this summer. Assuming a tour will happen after that or at the same time. It looks like her shows will be very well done with lighting and stage design. She’s busy.

    • kimk says:

      only person I saw David hook up with since his return was Katie Moore as I recall.
      guessing they are on different paths.

      • Grammyj says:

        I follow Joy on Twitter. She has been in LA instead of Nashville this winter and spring. It has crossed my mind that maybe David is “house sitting” their home while they are in LA. I have absolutely nothing to base this on other than he use to stay with them when he was in Nashville in the past.

    • Anne-Marie says:

      Thanks for the information Nancy!

    • Grammyj says:

      Yes, Joy is very busy promoting her new single and her album will soon be released. I don’t know if she wrote with David as she is busy getting her own music out. There are plenty of other writers that David can work with in Nashville.

      Yes, David is living in Nashville, but last week he was in LA. He is not in Utah much this year. He appears to be working on his music career and now has two more concerts listed on his Windish Agency page. Things are looking up. Hopefully he will have concerts all over the U.S. It makes sense that it would be easier for him to be booked in Utah and surrounding states. At least we who live elsewhere will have new videos of David to enjoy.

  28. Miss Vicki DA#@2014 says:

    Hey supergrandjudie….How ya been???? So excited that more concerts are popping up….I have faith that there will be more….even here on the East Coast…..So devastating about the earthquake in Nepal…..I had a family member of one of my residents who literally just returned home last week from being in Nepal….what a close call she had……Miss Vicki

  29. IMO says:

    Speaking about david being in nashville , I doubt it that david is living in joy William home. There was pic of david with a garden shovel on snow day, it sure didn’t look like a houseing area. Maybe apartments?? I think he might be renting a place there for time being for music and some privacy too but I think he will eventually will move back to utah , just my guesses Goodnight folks.

  30. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey IMO……When David posted that pic of him trying to shovel snow with the garden hoe, he also commented that a lot of neighborhood kids were home from school for the day…..He must be in a fairly residential neighborhood with families with school age kids……Miss Vicki

    • cc halo says:

      Some of the Truman/Ford family live in Hendersonville, Tennessee, where David has been spotted numerous times, including giving a lesson in church there. They were with him on the plane back to Nashville, at the Stevie Wonder concert, and I think at the hockey game. My guess is that he’s staying with them, or renting a house there, but staying with the friends makes more sense to me. (Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson also live in Hendersonville).

      • Grammyj says:

        That’s a better guess than mine. I do think he is living in Hendersonville. He has been with the Truman’s a lot so could be living with them. We probably will never know as it really is none of our business and David won’t tell. I’m just glad he is working on music and concert dates are trickling out for the fall.

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      I live in 4-plex townhomes (glorified two story apartments) and there are a ton of kids here. But they are located in a neighborhood of homes too and near an elementary school. Whether he’s renting on his own or at a friends, David was just being David, helpful as always, shoveling snow with a garden shovel. LOL

  31. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning guys! A TERRIFIC Tuesday to all!

    Speculation, sluething and waiting …..words Archies sure have become familiar with! Thanks to all for all the tidbits found, your thoughts and ideas and most of all your company!

    Nana patrol! SUPER BUSY day…so what else is new? lol. ENJOY your day! 🙂

  32. kimk says:

    good morning guys!

    good to see other dates David can sell in Idaho if I had to guess maybe other venues CA, AZ, NY and Nashville for others? hope for Nashville myself.

    my son wants to climb Mt Rainier soon.. he also wants to climb Mt. Everest one day all this going on with the poor folks of Nepal has my heart. it is so tragic never knew the area was prone to earthquakes.

    this was fabulous from The Voice first time I saw him thought wow he just might win not to mention make it on his own. (ok but David is still king know if he was out there still he’d be killing it too duh)
    John Denver-ish he is very good.
    #2 on itunes different then David but that is ok too more the merrier!

    The Voice 2015 Sawyer Fredericks – Top 8: “Simple Man”

  33. kimk says:

    was watching hockey missed The Voice last night
    seems Joshua sang FOG.. David killed it think Joshua is ok but doesn’t really have that ‘it’ factor plus he is not that young and yes it does matter whether folks want to admit it or not. or maybe I should say that not hip feel like Pharrell has going on I think he is 40?

    anyway kind of sad David not wanting to be on TV and such anymore but what can you do at least we have concerts and videos (begs) coming.

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      Meh, didn’t like it. Hard to not compare to David. When he covers songs he out does the original. I think he even did JT’s Mirrors better than JT, though JT’s is really good too.

  35. kimk says:

    Fields of Gold – David Archuleta – SLC Night 1


    this is what I miss!!
    outstanding (aww he is so young there too awfully adorable)

    • cq says:

      Omg, beautiful, would love to hear David sing FOG now. Joshua did a nice job, but, imo, nothing like David’s version.
      All these reality singing, dancing, etc competition shows are slicker and definitely have much better productions they earlier shows. I know if David would go on say the Voice or even AI now, imo, he would even make more of an impact with his voice. Although, I really just want David to get away from the whole reality circle and be known for the great artist that I think he is or at least has potential to be.

  36. Anne-Marie says:

    Good morning folks!
    Good to see more concert dates popping up. Hoping for more of course!

    Kimak- Thanks for posting the video of FOG. Always loved that cover of David’s along with EWTRTW and GGTT!

    Enjoy your day everyone. Might pop in at lunch time!

    • VaBeachArchie says:

      Good morning! Fields of Gold has always been one of my FAVORITES…never forget hearing it in Baltimore! BREATHTAKING! Hope to see those sparkling eyes, that joyful glow and smile again…..SPECIAL!

    Good Mornin’ to all my ArchiePeeps!!!
    Have been out of commission for a bit with sinus/alergy problems. Medication made me loopy and couldn’t put 2 thoughts together coherently LOL but I did read comments from time to time just to keep up. I feel like a fish out of water if I’m not on FOD!!!

    Hope everyone trying to get tickets for upcoming David concerts are successful!!! Will never forget our EXPERIENCE getting tickets for David’s concerts over the yrs. Hubby and I would sit on the sofa and by the end of our ordeal I was always shocked that we were still a married couple…it wasn’t a pretty sight LOL GOSH, I CAN’T WAIT TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, REALLY SOON!!!!!!!!!

    I’m grateful to see old and new friends on this site. Granted it’s a leaner group but I know there are plenty of steadfast FODlurkers out there following David’s journey, too. Hope his shows sell out to the rafters and that FOD becomes inundated with comments once again #justlikeoldtimes <3

    My heartfelt thanks to DFT, Joanie, Kalei and Pastel for keeping FOD relevant and one with David's fans!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!! Now I think I'll take a nap 🙂

  52. Janel aka Nellie says:

    My thoughts and prayers to the people in Baltimore going through the riots. David fan Steph Bagley lives there. She says it’s awful. She said the bulk of the issue is in West Baltimore. Don’t know if we have other fans from there. It’s sad to see what’s going on.

  53. Jani says:

    LOL! Just picturing you and hubby.

    Hope all the Archies that want tickets get them!
    Blue, I got an extra just in case hubby can come, but don’t think he’ll be able to. If not, and you don’t get a ticket, let me know on FOD, and it’s yours.

  54. Jani says:

    Whoops that comment was supposed to go to Idamae.

    Janel, I haven’t seen the news today. Doesn’t sound good. Some days I don’t want to turn it on.

    Melissa ‏@cupcakemel88 14m14 minutes ago
    Welp, it looks like I get to drag my hubby to the @DavidArchie concert in September, and we’re sitting in the 3rd row! #noshame

  56. kimk says:

    if I wanted tickets
    I would probably be there on a computer phone in hand just in case I needed to call with many windows of the page open and ready to go.
    hitting refresh until the second they pop up and then find the best tickets I can as fast as I can and CLICK!!
    all about getting your order in before anyone else can take them.

  57. bigfanlurker says:

    just to comment. It’s going to be difficult for David to rebuild a singing career in mainstream market if he is so rigid in his beliefs and who he will actually work with and beside. He cant convert to Christian music because that genre doesn’t accept LDS kindly because LDS members live by Book of Mormon primarily and Christians do not, so he will be left with a career where his gifted human voice will only be sold at Deseret Books and his concerts sponsored by LDS organizations. David chose this route so he must bear the consequences. As for his mainstream fans, our only hope is David will record a title song from a movie that will be promoted and sung by him nationally like “Let IT Go” or “Happy.” That could bring his talent back into the eyes of the public and catapult him forward again, but here again, it will be his choice if he allows himself to work outside of the box if an opportunity arises. David is so rigid right now, I don’t see any wiggle room. He may have to look for another avenue in the church or something in LDS culture outsie of music, or loosen his chains of confinement.

    • kimk says:

      could very well be.. not worrying about it myself ok if he never does tv and such again as long as he sings.
      like maybe Lindsey Stirling, The Piano Guys are doing now way I see it and they are doing ok.

      Disney perfect venue as well.

      • cq says:

        Kimk, I don’t know much about Lindsey Stirling or the Piano Guys, only from being a David fan, lol. Are the strictly LDS artists?

      • Grammyj says:

        The way I see it is that it’s David’s career. Sure I’ve been disappointed in some of his choices but I would rather that he have a happy life than cave to the pressures of trying to be something he is not. This week we’ve had riots in Baltimore and an earthquake in India. I think some uplifting music from David would be great. I’m with Kimk – I’m not worrying about David’s career. I just want him to put out music and perform. His recent concerts seem to be selling well.

        • Larzwik says:

          I agree Grammyj, some uplifting music from David will be welcome and refreshing! When we make choices, we either get a consequence or a blessing. I doubt if David looks at where his career is heading as a consequence, but rather as a blessing for the conscious decisions he’s made.

    • Jani says:

      I could take exception to parts of your comment…LDS, Christian, etc., but I don’t want to start a religious discussion. We can’t predict what might come, or dictate to David what he wants or should do. He gets to decide, and we can choose to follow or not. So..Just going to enjoy what we have now and not worry about the rest.

    • Ali says:

      While I agree with your point I think it should be noted that David is not the only one who is rigid. Why do so many in “mainstream” music and entertainment see someone who has strong religious beliefs as needing to be put into a box labeled “for religious people only”? That seems pretty rigid to me. The problem is opening eyes to the fact that open-mindedness goes both ways.

      I do think there are examples of people who are able to cross from what would normally be a religious “box” only into mainstream. Not many but some. We will just have to see what happens with David. Either way I think he will have a career, the question is just what kind.

      • Jani says:

        Good points, Ali, thanks.

        • Joanie/suttygal says:

          Hi everyone!
          Happy day for David and fans!!! So nice to see the tickets sold for the show in Layton so quickly!! 🙂 I truly believe we’ll see some other concerts popping up as venues /dates/locations are secured.
          Great perspectives, Ali, GrammyJ,..etc! Thank you! I love that David is working with a number of artists and that he strives to be inspirational in his music. The world definitely needs more inspiration and no one can sing it with a voice and “heart” like David. <3
          Wishing everyone a great evening! 🙂

      • bigfanlurker says:

        I agree Ali, and I hope that is what happens to David, if that’s what David wants. That’s what everyone is guessing these days. What does David want? He’s just not communicating anything to anyone outside of a small circle, it seems, so even though it’s hard to admit it, it’s really tough being his fan these days. We are having to be totally selfless while allowing him total freedom to choose or not choose who he will become, while the person that we spent so much time supporting has at least momentarily disappeared by his own choice. OUCH! There are too many good performers who are open to appreciation from fans these days, and the validation of that appreciation is shown by the artists in many ways. Fandom is not pushed on us, but we choose who we follow and admire based on how their music and communication makes us feels. It’s a luxury we choose to allow into our short 24 hours of the day or 52 short weeks, so we should be the choosy ones. Just saying.

  58. Linda (@LSCtheliverlady) says:

    Good morning friends!Happy Ticket Tuesday!! haha
    Yep…I caved “on the road again …”
    Seat AA-1 orchestra Woohoo!
    Hope to see y’all there

  59. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Reserved and orchestra sold out. General admission (bring your own lawn chair or camp chair) in grass area still available. $29

  60. kimk says:

    seems same folks who are sponsoring David’s Layton concert are sponsoring his Idaho Falls ones.. my guess they will have first dibs too?
    lol hard to be a fan of David sometimes but hey at least I know there will be videos and such.
    think Shelley is going and Lisa too! 🙂


    at least we know that his peeps are supporting him and that is good.

  61. kimk says:

    cq here is Lindsey Stirling and John Legend fabulous she does very well with what she does..

    All Of Me – John Legend & Lindsey Stirling


  62. kimk says:

    ackson 5 and Bach were funky way before Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk! – “I Want You Bach” -ThePianoGuys


    Piano Guys and Peter Hollens sang with David on that Christmas nativity video too

  63. kimk says:

    couldn’t care less if David is on the radio either..
    thing is though if he puts out cool innovative music that folks love and buy .. I dunno like Pharrell’s Happy for instance it will play on the radio.
    usually folks go with what is popular.


    all started from a movie.. hoping David will at least sing for one one day.

  64. kimk says:

    religion and politics are fire starters..
    not sure David cares at this point considering he keeps tweeting and speaking about it. fair game for a discussion especially now that it is David who is going for it.

    Tori is a sweetheart..

    MTV ‏@MTV 4h4 hours ago
    .@ToriKelly stands up to societal pressures in #UnbreakableSmile: http://on.mtv.com/1ba0QDx
    the track is about sticking it to the music industry and not letting any negative criticism stop her from being genuine. Many artists might be deterred by what they hear and conform, but Tori refuses, singing, “Stir up a little scene ’cause isn’t that what you want?/ For me to mess up, so you could dress up some kind of story, saying ’Tori, this’ll sell more records’/ But I’d rather make them yawn than be a pawn on your chessboard.”

    • Mags says:

      Well then Kimk why don’t you go be her fan since you seem to always be disappointed in David, I have a hard time deciding if you really are a fan or not. Maybe you are trying to ” keep it real” idk, but it feels like you have no faith in him.

      • kimk says:

        doesn’t matter what you think

      • Mags says:

        Not what I meant Grammy J, of course we can be fans of others, I just meant that she tends to think on the down side of things more than the upside when it comes to David. But whatever, we can all think what we wish..

      • abadfanIguess says:

        Since the first time David was on AI and a fan base was formed to follow him there have been fans who take it upon themselves to pick apart things other fans have to say and question if they really are a fan of David. Unless you are a fan who thinks David is a God on earth, who puts him on a pedestal and thinks everything he says or does is just the most marvelous thing anyone has ever done, then you are a bad fan. Well, I’m sick to death of it. When you come to a fan site and see those kind of comments made to someone who truly has been a fan of David through thick and thin it makes you wonder if you really want to be a part of that fan base. I’m not sure I do because that uber fan, picking apart other fans for maybe not really being a fan of David, is just not me and it makes me sick.

      • ray says:

        mag i agree with you,its fans like her that start rumors.just my openion just like every body else

  65. MUNKM says:

    HI! Was someone asking if Lindsey Sterling and The Piano Guys are just LDS artists? Well… they are both on world tours right now filling up stadiums! Here is one of Lindsey’s latest videos!

    Have faith in David! I do! Not going anywhere!

    • cq says:

      Thanks Munkm, so they are good successful artists that just happen to be LDS, but aren’t labeled as LDS artists, so I’m assuming their shows are about the music and not about spreading their personal beliefs. That to me, is awesome.

  66. angelbymyside says:

    well some things never change 🙁

  67. Alwaysafan says:

    We have concerts coming and more to be announced by the sound of it and a new album possibly this year, and who knows what else, why are people still complaining? also I don’t think David being LDS is going to ruin his chances for a career, so what if he is religious and even more so since his mission, he is still the same sweet, kind, caring funny person we love, not to mention that voice;)

    • Anne-Marie says:

      Thank you for that comment. There are concerts coming AND they are selling out! That’s good news! We have David’s music to look forward to. Sometimes I just don’t get the angst over David’s career. It’s HIS career. I truly believe that he loves all kinds of music & wouldn’t stick to just religious music. He has said several times he’s working on pop music. That’s good enough for me. In the meantime, I’m still enjoying his other albums, things he’s done since he’s been back, as well as other artists. It’s all good! Now I would LOVE it if he gets to come back to NY but I really can’t worry about it because it’s out of my hands. I will try to go to any show that is on the East coast. If that doesn’t happen, sure I’ll be disappointed but will look forward to the music and catch videos from lucky peeps who do get to go. 🙂

      • Joanie/suttygal says:

        I love your comment, AnneMarie~ Beautiful perspective. <3 🙂

      • CJ says:

        Love your comments, too. Sometimes I get discouraged reading negative comments. Of course everyone has a right to post their opinions, just prefer less angst especially when we have concerts and an album coming up.

  68. cq says:

    If anyone wishes to venture over to SD, Hg posted a great article today.

  70. Grammyj says:

    Everyone go read the article at Soul David.!! Yes to what HG states. We need music from David to heal our souls. Thanks Cq for the heads up to read the new post at Soul David.

    • Candy says:

      I read her article, and agree with her comment that we need musical balm to heal so many things, not only in our country but in the world as a whole. I had trouble digesting some of what was said, Im not African American so there is no way I can even begin to understand her thoughts, as a fellow human being, yes definitely!
      I just now turned the TV on and see cops under siege for a 2nd day in Baltimore…we need that music or something and we need it now! It makes me heartsick to see this happening in a country that I am proud to call my home! Growing up in the 60’s, at times I feel like we are still stuck there, and this or any violence doesnt do much to erase that feeling! At times it even deepens the hurt on both sides. 🙁

      • bigfanlurker says:

        The sad thing is…I just can’t see the new David singing to us anymore without thinking it over for a decade and clearing it with the multitudes. he could be sharing with us on a smaller scale, like through a you tube channel or even instagram (even in a playful manner) but he’s chosen not too.

        • Grammyj says:

          Yes I wish he would do more with social media too especially you-tube. I’ve been disappointed in that respect too. I’ve started following some you-tube artists that I discovered because of David but I wish he would do vlogs like he use to do. Oh well.

  71. Mary Dee says:

    I haven’t seen this pic from @bartolson brought over here so I’m sharing it. It’s of David from the UVU event. I hope it goes through 🙂

  72. Martha says:

    As much as I love David, we need more than him to heal souls.

    • Candy says:

      I agree Martha, we need help from a higher source then David, his music may help but or country and the world seem to be in self-destruct mode.

    • Joanie/suttygal says:

      Agree, Martha~ David’s music is a beautiful “balm” but it’ll take the masses to make an effort together in resolve, action, and prayer. <3

  73. Marylee-NorthCarolinaGirl says:

    Another SELL-OUT! Way to go David! 🙂

    • Marylee-NorthCarolinaGirl says:

      ….sorry if my comment landed in a more “serious” slot. Just signed in and saw the ticket report and was elated to see it.

      • Candy says:

        Theres really no right or wrong place to post, I just happened to read HG article and then turned on the TV…

        • Marylee-NorthCarolinaGirl says:

          …made the mistake pf not reading over all the comments before I commented ~ so true, Candy..so much devastation in the world ~ very sad.

    • Anne-Marie says:

      Woo hoo!!

  74. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hello Everyone!
    Hope you all are having a great day.
    Just have to say, we haven’t even heard Davids new music yet, so
    we don’t know who will like it, who won’t, what radio play he will
    get, what tv shows he might be on. We’re getting concerts set up,
    better be one in MN, gosh darn it 😉 😀 (if possible 🙄 )
    So much to look forward to, sky’s the limit with David. While he
    might quote something once in a while, he’s hardly pushing his
    faith on anyone. I for one, don’t want another Jason Maraz, John
    Mayer, Pharrell, Adam Levine, Beck, Keith Urban, Garth Brooks,
    etc…. etc…. etc…… I want to hear David be David, he’s one unique
    dude with a good heart & a once in a lifetime voice & talent, sounds
    pretty dang good to me 😀

    Kim has been a great fan, bringing us countless tweets, kept us plugging
    along as we wait for what I’m sure will be some pretty wonderful music.
    Now, between commenting here, on twitter, doing house hold chores &
    work, anyone’s comments can maybe be unclear at times, so if you think you read
    something you don’t agree with, question or even makes you mad, read
    again. Sometimes when you read a comment again, it makes more sense
    or you realize you misunderstood. Give eachother a break. 😀

    Gotta go, take care all, TTYL 😀

    • Anne-Marie says:

      I like this Beth–> “I want to hear David be David, he’s one unique dude with a good heart & a once in a lifetime voice and talent..” Yes! And if I may add to your comment–> I want to hear David be David, not some poor imitation of someone else or who I or we as a fan base want him to be or sound like. 🙂

  75. Janel aka very tired Nellie says:

    .@DavidArchie tickets now completely sold out for Sept 19 concert in Layton, Utah. @kariontour #fabulous #yayDavid #goodnews

  76. Candy says:

    Just wanted to s y, from what I see and have seen of kimk she has been a loyal fan, stuck with us, and David through the good, the bad and yes even the ugly. I applaud her dedication, at times mine waivers, its fans like kim, who for me, remind me why I was a fan in the first place.

  77. kimk says:

    ha from the man himself..

    Go Jump Off A Cliff 😀


    thing is we all are fans even the ones who just likes his voice or his gorgeous eyes or the good deeds he does.. whatever more the merrier.

    Janel omgosh really they are all sold out!!!?

    • cq says:

      All kinds of fans. Yes, if you are a fan because you like his eyes, what the heck is the difference, as long as you buy his music, go to his concerts, buy, buy, buy, so that he can keep singing!!!!!!!!! I’m all about the voice, about voice the about and yay, not bad to look at while I’m listening to that gold voice, lol.

    lol take that you cranky newspaper lady!! 😆

  80. Davidfanlurker says:

    re the SD post… David’s music is def. healing for me… perhaps her own commenters need some to heal the endless negativity and friction over there, imho.

    Thrilled at David’s sellouts. Hope it spurs him on to book more shows. 🙂

  81. kimk says:

    hey guys thanks you are all sweet.. do understand where mags is coming from though I am pretty snarky at times. admit it but then again that is me I go all over the place.
    way I see it I see David and here and around as kind of like family if that makes any sense and well David is right in there along with it all. would probably say as much to him like I would family lol that is if I ever got past the ‘gah’ stage with him.
    he seems pretty down to earth lol well most of the time sometimes I have questioned on just how unreal he can seem.

  82. kimk says:

    would think so.. guess Idaho is next when do they go on sale couldn’t find any info on them.

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      They are still only on the Windish Agency site, not on the OS, or mentioned by David or team yet. Possible that they won’t announce until it’s closer to when they can be purchased, who knows!

      • bigfanlurker says:

        Is Windish Agency LDS? Is so, are they national? It looks like they are our brightest hope for David concerts.

  83. kmb says:

    May I just point out something David said just this month?

    “…I wanted to show that no matter where you are, you can have the freedom to stand up for truth. You can be considered a pop artist and not have to follow everyone else. Other examples of people who were able to stand up and be treated who they were, were people I admired like Owl City, Dolly Parton, Phil Collins, Five for Fighting, Lindsay Sterling and many more.”

    He was specifically talking here about his pre-mission struggles, but I truly believe that he STILL wants to show that you can be a pop artist and not follow the crowd. That’s how I interpreted it anyway. If he wasn’t going to be a pop artist anymore, this would have been the ideal setting to add “I did all that stuff before my mission but after my mission I decided it wasn’t for me,” BUT HE DIDN’T. He did wonder whether he’d have to “start over” when he got back, and it seems like he’s had to in some ways. But he is doing just that and I can’t wait to see what’s next. If he wasn’t going to be a pop artist anymore, he would have told us already.

    Thanks again, Janel, for taking the time to transcribe the UVU address. It is a gem! 🙂

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      You’re welcome!

    • Anne-Marie says:

      I believe that as well kmb!! Thanks for posting that! Good things are coming I truly believe. 🙂

    • Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

      Hey kmb! You’re comment made me think of what mom’s have been saying forever “If you’re friend jumped off a cliff, would you?” lol, be yourself. Unless you do impressions for a living, no need to be someone else, be who you are 😀 David is writing pop songs. Now could he be writing a hymn or two down the road, that would be cool. I’m excited to see, errr ummmm, hear what he’s been up to 😀

  84. Janel aka Nellie says:

    If you go straight to this link it says sold out. https://tickets.davisarts.org/ordertickets.asp?p=425

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      Oh wait, snap…now it doesn’t. I guess they figured out how to squeeze a few more people in. LOL

      • Janel aka Nellie says:

        Ha! Now they say sold out again. Well, they are in my book! Way to go David!! Yes they are smaller venues but gets love from everywhere! The concerts might have Utah/Mormon ties because of their location but we already know people buy them from all over, come from out of state and not all are LDS. We know from Kari’s past tweet that contracts with other venues are being negotiated and there will be other states and concerts. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have a plethora of dates announced soon. What was only going to be a concert here and there will end up being a tour.

  85. Rapport says:

    So, here’s how I hope the story unfolds: David continues to add — and sell out — 1,000-2,000-seat venues. Everyone who attends his small open-air concerts will be blown away (literally) and word will spread like wildfire far and wide, through the hills and the valleys of America, from west coast to east coast and from the prairies to the badlands.

    Suddenly, small concert venues can no longer accommodate the bulging throng of David Archuleta fans and he advances to 7,000-10,000-seat arenas.

    Everybody knows what comes next in this story.

    • Jani says:

      Rapport, I love how you think!

    • Anne-Marie says:

      I love this scenario!! More please!!!

      • Rapport says:

        The only way David will escape stardom — IMO — is to do concerts in his basement.

        He’s smart, don’t you think? He knows where he has to start out and where it may ultimately lead him. He’s walking the road as he’s paving it.

        I, for one, think he is one shrewd business man.

        • Anne-Marie says:

          I do too and I don’t think people give David credit in that regard. I think it was very smart advertising shows in Utah first where he can sell out most definitely, than go from there to other areas of the country. Just hope one of those areas are somewhere on the East coast! Lol.

  86. kimk says:

    nancy ‏@muldur 3m3 minutes ago
    @rhiminee @djhsail @kimak 1909 total i think.

    Gee, went twice to the greenhouse and come home to find SOLD OUT ( give or take a few ) concert news and tweets with a pic! Looks like it’s going to be tough getting tickets to the up coming concerts. Have to get a hacker…I’m inept! lol.

    Looks like David still is writing for the album….wonder how many he will choose from? ANXIOUS to see the MIX of songs he chooses!?

  90. sierra says:

    surprised someone as religious as david still watches Disney movies when everybody knows by know they have subliminal gay undertones and other sexual things. maybe he really doesn’t know. is that possible? why would he be watching Aladdin and quoting, bee yourself??????? his brain sure is a mystery!

  91. sierra says:

    you’ve never heard that either???

  92. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Gotta go for a bit, will check in later. 😀

  93. IMO says:

    Cool more writing, I thought david would be done by now and starting to new CD layout, I guess not still working on it. I bet david will at the concert tonight?!

  94. kimk says:

    ha ok probably why I love Disney so much.. as for David knew he had it in him that wild and crazy guy 😉

  95. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hello Again! 😀

    I’m really excited to see what kind of music David has come up
    with, so much more experience to put in the music.

    • Anne-Marie says:

      I wonder if snippets will be released as before for his other albums? If so, looking forward to listening to all of them. 🙂

      • Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

        You would think so, but you never know what
        he will come up with. There are a few different
        ways to go about releasing new music. Can’t wait!
        I will, but it’s not easy. Happy to do it, sort of, I
        mean, when Davids ready, just excited to hear
        the new music 😀

  96. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hey Kim! Well, he’s gotta do all of the recording & then
    production, so I don’t think anything is ready quite yet 😀

    So nice to see this on the OS

    Wonder why the Idaho shows are not on there yet?

    • Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

      Hey mary Dee! I LOVE to see that. Maybe there are a couple of details
      to work out before he lists them officially.

      Hey David! Come to MN please! Pretty please w/pad thai

        I told my husband that there will be 2 shows in Idaho this September. He asked if I’d rather go to those shows than the Tuacahn shows coz it’s closer to home. I said I’ll think about it. Then he asked, “You are not thinking about going to both venues, are you?” Dang!!! Busted 🙂

    • kimk says:

    Hey Rapport….love your thoughts on David building up his career one small venue at time…..sierra…never heard of the subliminal gay messages and sexual things in Disney movies…….parents need to start censoring their kids movies….hahaha….Hey VaBeachArchie…..have fun at the greenhouse….it’s finally warming up here in central Virginia…..Miss Vicki

  100. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    I have faith in David….looks like his concerts are all selling out quickly….I think it’s just a matter of time that more venues will pop up especially back here in the East Coast too…..Miss Vicki

  101. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

  102. Sierra says:

    can’t believe no one here has heard about the Disney secret sexual undertone thing. so Joy should collab with David! wonder what the deal is? what’s her problem?

  103. kimk says:

    seriously though there are always folks who have their knickers in a bunch.

  104. kimk says:

    don’t think Joy and David are doing a collab.

  105. Mags says:

    Sexual undertones in Disney movies? Wow, that sounds ridiculous, talk about reading waaaay to far into things! I don’t understand how some people think sometimes, they sure like to make mountains out of molehills;) anyway, I’m so happy that David has another sold out show under his belt:)

  106. kimk says:

    Joy Williams- Woman (Oh Mama)


    think this is a video of Joy’s first live performance of her new song and show.

  107. kimk says:

    not sure what to say about it.. guess it isn’t me I suppose.

  108. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Disney = gay agenda, sexual overtones….nada….no way……..Just so glad David’s concerts are selling out…….that’s good news for all us Archie fans……….Miss David’s random thoughts and food tweets…..Hope we get some news from the man soon……Night all…..Miss Vicki

  109. kimk says:

    well you know if you want to find something you will.. with anything.
    what I do love about a lot of the Disney films like UP for instance there is one movie for the kids and another for the adults keeps it interesting.
    I think Happy Feet (not sure that one is Disney but still great) and UP are my two fav movies.
    saw Frozen great movie.. that Hans sure was a jerk.

  110. Sierra says:

    no wonder Joy can’t collab with David! she is way too sexy and freaky for him, haha! love her new song. thanks kimk.

  111. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Just shared on Facebook a sampling of the songs David has covered and improved upon in my opinion. Can’t hear the original on the radio without wanting it to be David’s cover. Today it was Apologize by One Republic. I love that song but David puts that extra something on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rEbja2npYk

  112. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Here’s a riddle for ya…

  113. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Will you be my love among the fields of barley?

  114. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Starts in my toes make me crinkle my nose….

  115. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I’m finding it hard to believe we’re in heaven.

  116. Janel aka Nellie says:

    If I could fall into the sky do you think time would pass me by?

  117. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I’ll be your crying shoulder, I’ll be love’s suicide…

  118. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I can’t help but notice you reflect in this heart of mine…

  119. Janel aka Nellie says:
  120. Alwaysafan says:

    I know what you mean Janel, every time I hear a song that David has covered, I can’t help but think of his version, he kinda spoils us that way:)

  121. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning guys! It’s Hump Day! ENJOY!

    Have to agree Janel and Alwaysafan! David has such a gift of taking a song and make it new again…..it’s his! Have a long list I’d love to hear him sing!

    Nana patrol! GREAT seeing the words SOLD OUT after each of the concerts listed so far! Time to add to the list!! EAST COAST dates would be APPRECIATED! 🙂

  122. kimk says:

    good morning folks!

    ha well seems the Beibs is taking up acting 😀

  126. kimk says:

    Beth oh you are talking snippets when or if the CD comes out like on itunes? I get you was talking about like when Eman would release some when they were writing.

    Sierra lol not so sure it was sexy.. think she might be going for a mother nature ethereal type thing I Am Woman hear me roar? seemed a bit herky jerky to me the lyrics were a bit repetitive at least way I saw it but then again I am not a fan all that much of her music so hard for me to comment.

    ha she did do this a while back..



  127. kimk says:

    so Adam Lambert has a new song out.. new music video Ghosttown well lol only got thru half of the video posted at mjs.
    nope not for me.

    sure hope David puts out some type of music video pretty sure I won’t feel like I have to wash my eyes out with bleach.

    Don’t underrate these sellouts. The Piano Guys have two shows at Tuacahn not yet sold out and Donny has not yet sold out Layton.

    Pastel @pastelpastel · 12h 12 hours ago
    @muldur David will always be a strong draw. So true.

  129. kimk says:

    another thing I saw about Justin Beiber is that his new music is supposed to be uplifting message type stuff.. rofl so where did he get that idea. 😉

    • VaBeachArchie says:

      Well he better change his look…..in all the pics I’ve seen of him lately he looks stoned or drunk? Sure will be interesting!

      • kimk says:

        yup talk the talk but you better walk the walk for folks to buy it.. but then again his fans are just off the wall enough to just do that.
        interesting isn’t it.. Scooter my guess.

  130. angelbymyside says:

    sierra’s comments yesterday are among some of the most amusing ones I have seen posted here in some time! Wonder if she intentionally meant them to be??? ROFL 😆

  131. Jani says:

    well, David started my morning off right. I was at the gym, sweating away on the treadmill when I heard TOSOD… perked me right UP! 🙂 Thanks David.

    Saying prayers for people in Napal. My hubby was there in the fall, knows people there; and sure hoping they are safe.

    Feeling blessed here today….spring finally blossoming everywhere, sunny skies, birds chirping. I guess Minnesotans really appreciate green and warm!
    Take care all!

  132. Joanie/suttygal says:

    HI Jani and everyone! Yes~ we Minnesotans really do love this late April warmth! Enjoy your day everyone; NEW POST is up! 🙂
