*Joanie posted the 30-minute FB Live Chat yesterday – so scroll down to the Friday Update to watch the vid!

David visited the Ryan Seacrest Studios Center at the Monroe Carell Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, and he did a 30 minute Facebook Live Chat where he answered questions from the children, the emcee and played Numb live on the keyboards!   It’s 30 minutes of pure fun and giggles – David is his rambly, adorable self – this is why we’re fans and will be fans forever!


In this interview, David answers a LOT of questions – both from the kids and the emcee. At the end of the interview, there’s a “lightning round” of questions, and David is on the spot answering rapid-fire questions, but hangs in there, even doing a semi-accurate, hilarious impersonation of Ash Ketchum from Pokemon!

I didn’t write down all of the questions, but some of the things we learn from this interview are (in no particular order):

– Favorite color:  Green (he points to Matthew’s shirt)
– He’s not a huge fan of cameras – nervous before video shoots
– The video was shot to a soundtrack, but he’s singing along live
– The Numb music vid was shot down the road from the Loveless Cafe
– In Nashville he likes to eat at Calypso, Mas Tacos & Loveless Cafe
– David Cook also lives in Nashville and sometimes they meet for lunch
– Favorite food: Mexican (Enchiladas) & Thai Food
– Sports: Ran cross country in high school – his family plays basketball
– The 7 Dwarves got a new friend – DUMPY! 😀
– Pet Peeve: People drumming their fingers on their leg when sitting next to him on a plane – it makes him anxious. He said he was a hypocrite because he drums his fingers too lol.
– Best joke: Knock-Knock joke about bananas and an orange
– He’s never accidentally gotten into a strangers car
– He likes camping – he was a Boy Scout and is an Eagle Scout, but he forgot how to start a fire or tie knots
– The last thing he cooked/baked was soup (that he heated up) and Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice cookies – that sounds yum!
– Last movie he saw was Zootopia – and he sang a few lines from Shakira’s Try Everything – he also said he learned that even if you makes mistakes, you just keep going – everything doesn’t have to be perfect. He talked about American Idol where he forgot a line from Waiting On The World To Change, but they let him move on anyway!
– He would rather attend a party than plan a party – and it seems he likes to crash a party now and then! 😀
– He woke up at 6:30am
– He collects Pokemon gear
– Answers the phone after one ring
– The pants he’s wearing are a few years old
– He says ummm a lot
– He’s a backseat driver
– He always has his phone
– And YES he will come back to visit Seacrest Studios!

He then did his live performance of Numb on the keyboards! There’s also a clip of Crush from someone’s IG, but it’s not on the FB Live chat. Makes me wonder what other songs he sang!

Look who I ran into! 😉 it was great coming to @vumcchildren hospital For a broadcast at the Seacrest Studios. They had a Facebook live of the broadcast so you can check it out on their Facebook! Now if it were really Ryan he is one of the friendliest, engaging folks in the business I've ever met and you would have seen that. Haha. Aside from that, it is really cool being able to come do visits like this. A lot of times I feel I don't know how I can help when kids are going through hard times. I don't know what gifts to bring, what medicine or treatments they need. But then I remember I can give what I have. I can give my time and give them music, and that's a tender mercy for me. So glad Kelly from Children's Miracle Network invited me to come and Mamie with Seacrest Studios hosted us so well! Thanks everyone for coming and we hope to see you again soon! @ryanseacrest @ryanfoundation

If you haven’t seen the movie Zootopia, it’s definitely a great movie! Here’s the song David mentions in the interview – Try Everything by Shakira – it’s about taking chances and trying everything  even though you might fail.

Trending Party!

Archies gathered on Twitter for a trending party to celebrate David’s new music – including his new music vid for Numb! There were lots of creative tweets, but not enough Archies were online so we didn’t get a trend this time. But we did spread the word about David’s new music! Always fun to hang out with Archies on twitter!

Friday afternoon UPDATE! David visits Monroe Carell Children’s Hospital Ryan Seacrest Studios Center at  Vanderbilt (Tennessee) ~

Recorded segment (3o minutes) of his visit!!! Full of wisdom, info, fun, and music!  ~More on this to come! 🙂

Live with David Archuleta in Seacrest Studios

Posted by Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt on Friday, November 18, 2016

* * * * * *


It’s finally here! Numb debuted today and social media was on fire! Archies who have been impatiently waiting for David’s new music vid were rewarded with a gorgeous feast for the eyes and ears as David takes a walk through the woods , connecting with nature and singing his heart out! I looked for Almond, but he was nowhere to be found – I guess he’s a city squirrel.

Let’s give this vid some love and get those views up! Share the vid with your family and friends! Can we get it to 1 million views?

Deseret Promo for Christmas Tour





“My favorite thing about singing with Nathan is that as powerful as his voice is, he doesn’t try to hog any musical space,” Archuleta wrote. “He is such a talent and he is a down-to-earth guy which makes it even easier to share the stage with him.”

Ticket sales updated from Ali


Ali also added in comments that Rexburg has sold 11, 000 tickets! Out of 15, 000!

Angela’s Tuacahn Story

“My Little Write Up”
by Angela Swartz – aka:Archangel121

As my “sugar crash” has been leveling out these past few weeks, I feel that I am slowly making my way back to the “Other Side of Down”

Like many of you, my journey with David began way back in early 2008 with American Idol. I have truly been blessed these past 8 years to have been able to attend many Idol Shows, Idol Concerts, and lots of Concert Tours near and far. Every single one holds a special memory, but I don’t think any quite compare to Tuacahn. Not only did we get three “Glorious” nights of David and the band under the starlit skies of St. George, Utah, but we were accompanied by friends from all over the country. David’s voice was like no other and his new songs were stellar to say the least.

ang-8As part of these concert experiences, our fearless leader “Kalei” always likes to gather as many fans as possible and host a “Fan Lunch”. I have to say we always pout for about a day because we know how much work goes into pulling one of these luncheons off, but once we all get together we realize that this is what it is all about – David and fans from around the world! David’s music is always playing in the background as it was with this luncheon. Everyone was full of excitement from the last two nights, we all get to talk, laugh, sing and sometimes even cry.

The Tuacahn luncheon started off just like so many others, and then, to our surprise, a familiar face walks into the room, Kari! Bringing a ray of sunshine and her Venti Starbucks cup in hand. Mary Lou and Joanie just happened to run into her at Starbucks on their way to the luncheon. Kari was so sweet, not only did she stop by to say hello and thank us for supporting David, but she was willing to stay and answer some questions. She asked what we thought of the shows, and how we liked the new music.

WOW, this just made my day, because we all know how we get on the last concert day 🙁  We all thanked Kari for stopping by, and I did happen to mention that David’s shoes rocked and thumbs up for the great outfit. Kari did say that David picked out his own concert outfit for Tuacahn! OK moving on…we said goodbye and continued our luncheon. Everybody was excited again from hearing the things Kari talked about, and all that is to come. The food was great, raffle prizes were handed out, and it was time to get ready for our annual fan group picture. Janet and I started moving the tables and chairs around when the volume in the room suddenly became much louder. Is this for real? Yep, it was David who just casually walked through the doors, but not just David… the whole band and Kari too! You can only imagine the surprised look on everyones face, but I think mine was more like a deer in headlights kinda of look.


After everyone caught their breath and found a seat, David proceeded to softly say, “Thank You”. He thanked all of his fans for being there and supporting him over the last 8 years and how much it meant to him that we were still there. At that moment I was feeling a little emotional, not because David was standing in front of me, but because of the words he spoke. It was like a validation for me.

I was just thinking, what other artist in this industry would ever show up at a Fan Lunch to personally thank his fans and than sit and sing two songs…ummm… NO ONE! This is the reason we are still here, because of these types of moments. David is truly genuine in every way possible. He is always talking about this “light”…well David, THANK YOU again for bringing so many of us fans together, THANK YOU for sharing your music, and THANK YOU especially for sharing a little bit of your “light” with all of us.

PS – Just sayin’ I would not mind at all if one day you did sing Tears for Fears “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” and Boston’s, “More Than A Feeling” – rock on!

Last Chance to Sign David’s Bday Card


*  *  *  *  *

What a day it’s been!  The Numb music vid just shows us even more how David has decided that what he has to say through music can be both intensely personal and also a commercial hit! I hope we all get to hear Numb on the radio soon!

This has been a fun week, remembering the Tuachan shows and David’s surprise visit to our fan lunch – I’m looking forward to the Christmas tour – and I hope to see many of you there! Pastel will be back on Monday with more David news!

I’ll leave you with this – because it was fun being a back up singer for David at the fan lunch! 😀

    MakeupMornings8 hours ago
    I need advice from you oh so wise man..
    How do you stay so strong in yourself and your believes? Just leaving the music industry for 2 years, coming back and creating something new, something different despite what people would think of it.. Most importantly, how DO you deal with the negativity around you and your decisions. Ever since some of my videos have started to get more views I’ve gotten the nastiest most horrifying threat comments! How do you deal with it? ..

  14. Al says:

    OK, first I have to say that I am extremely relieved and thankful that David has released a pop record. I wasn’t sure this would ever happen, and I’m so excited to see him so excited by this event. It’s really encouraging for those of us who have stuck with him specifically hoping for continued efforts in the pop realm. Wow!

    I love the song. I like the video. Though I will say… With admiration and humor… He needs to eat a pork chop. Oh my goodness. My only constructive criticism of the video is that if you notice in the close up black-and-white, there’s some weird side lighting casting a shadow on the left side of his face… (The right side of his nose as we look at…). I don’t know if that was intentional or not, but it’s not particularly flattering. Black-and-white… Interesting choice. Otherwise, this is a great day for all Archies! And most especially so for one David Archuleta!

    Good morning Judy… akk hope you feel better soon! 🙁
    lol yeah found my ear buds was able to blast it. David done great haven’t really seen anything to say that folks didn’t like it all good by me!!!

    Al ha a pork chop.. do I think he is too skinny yeah but kind of think it is because he is fit and trim as for the black and white I actually like it it shows a more realistic hard look at David? what I mean is take the BEGIN pics the Christmas CD cover… fluff teen stuff? David has grown up a man now and it is great. also love the pop stuff was worried a bit too. think it will help spread his music a bit more too. bodes well for us on the east coast who haven’t seen him yet.

  21. Ali says:

    Love love loveeeeee the video! Oh man. Sorry I didn’t get here to comment last night, I was stuck over on youtube watching a certain video 😉

    Seriously though I’m impressed with the quality. This is David, as an independent artist who is self-funding his music, his releases, his video, and the quality is there. Love seeing that Archie Music under the copyright as well.

    Also just saw the great news about the 11,000+ tickets that have already sold for the BYU-Idaho show! That’s truly amazing. That’s the one where we can’t see the individual seats and I’m glad now because I can’t imagine trying to count 11,000 little dots lol. So happy for David & Nathan to be selling so well there!!!

  22. GrammyJ says:

    I love the Numb music video!! The good news is we get another music video from David next month. Yeah for new music and new music videos from our favorite singer. It’s so much fun to talk about David’s music and his upcoming concert tour. His concert tickets are selling well with maybe the exception of Indianapolis but still he has sold almost 500 tickets there so not so shabby. He just needs to book smaller venues when he is not in Utah-Idaho-Arizona. It’s great that 11,000 tickets have been sold for Rexburg.

  23. Martha says:

    I’ve always liked Numb but the music video really seems to put it all together for me. It’s complete now, full circle. The total picture that he wants to show, where he was 2 years ago, is shown. Really anxious to hear more of his songwriting treasures. And that voice…..

  24. SMcM says:

    Good Morning Everyone ♥

    What can I say that everyone on YouTube….Facebook….and Instagram have not expressed already? It sure has been enjoyable reading all the great comments! David has really touched so many people all around the world with this song and his authentic messages. He is truly loved! We all knew that, but I am not sure David felt that. It’s time to Celebrate!!! 🙂

    NUMB is such a big hit!!! I just LOVE it!!! His beautiful heart was the source of this beautiful video and song. It is one classy song, one classy video, and the most classy singer and person I have ever known about. David is REAL and should never be afraid to be who he is. That is the true gift that he is sharing to all who listen . His message is something that inspires and brings healing. I think by revealing his heart…he is cleansing his soul…and clearing the way to the “road less traveled” for him. It is great to be a David fan….and share this journey with him!!! We are all growing right along with David I think! 🙂

    ♥ Thank You and Bless you David! ♥

    David was at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and did a FB live event today. Here is the recorded 30+ minute video. He sings Numb while playing the keyboard at the end. 😀 😀 😀


  27. Sue says:

    Sorry, part of my post got cut off. The link I posted above is to David’s recorded/live FB post from the children’s hospital this morning.

    David posted this IG after his visit to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation at Children’s Hospital in Vanderbilt. Love his humor….

    Hi everyone! The facebook live (recorded) appearance of David at Childrens Hospital is now embedded at the top of this post. 🙂

  30. Ali says:

    Quick note: the Mesa show is close to being sold out. Only 55 tickets left out of 1,588. Likely will sell out this weekend.

  31. kmb says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the NUMB MV!!!!!!!! The gorgeous scenery, plus David and his vocals…wow!!! 😀 😀 😀 One of my favorite parts is the way David stomps on each chorus and shows the emotions of the words through his movements and expressions. My other favorite part is his gesture on “everything is right” plus the sunlight — perfect moment! And how the camera then pans upward to show how small David is within the landscape. I love what he said on Instagram: “We shot the video outside and alone to capture what it feels like to connect with oneself. Sometimes you have to separate yourself from everything to connect to something deeper. Nature is for sure one of those places for me. I hope that you can feel that energy watching and listening. ”

    One question though. When David is not in the woods, where is he? Just alone in a random room, or is it meant to represent a specific place that he’s not comfortable in? Maybe at a photo shoot? I understand the transition from black and white to color, but what might the non-natural space actually be, if anything? Did I miss some details? I’m probably over-analyzing this in my mind, but that’s what we ODD fans do haha. I hope my question even makes sense. 😉

  32. kmb says:

    AND, the Vanderbilt FB live is the BEST!!!!! Don’t worry, David, you did Numb on the keyboard just fine! 🙂 Thanks for being you! 🙂

    • GrammyJ says:

      I loved the Children’s Hospital Facebook live too. David is just so charming. His honestly and openness has always been special to me. This interview was just like old times. I’m so glad he is continuing on his public music career and getting out there again. I’m hoping for more Facebook live events from David!

    David at the Nashville DMV

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      I remember the last time David was at the DMV in the SLC area somewhere in Dec 2011 the same day I was at the DMV in Orem getting mine renewed. I mentioned there was a kid at the DMV who looked like David but knew it wasn’t him because he was asking his mom if he could drive home. LOL. I didn’t know David was at the one in SLC until I tweeted about that kid and everyone was tweeting me back like crazy telling me it was David. LOL. It wasn’t though. We were at different locations. I’m glad he did the IG story today though because it reminds me I need to get mine renewed. Our birthdays are only a couple weeks (well 17 days) apart which is the reason for the coinkidink that we were getting our licenses renewed the same day back in 2011.

  37. Former ODD'ER says:

    Where are the fans?? 45 comments after a video release, no interest or support to trend??? David should save his energy for Christmas and Christmas concerts. That’s all it seems his “fans” are interested in. How the mighty David, and FOD, has fallen.

    • GrammyJ says:

      It has been eight years since American Idol where many of us became fans of David. David went on a mission for two years and then spend time writing music . It is no surprise to me that fans would fade away since David was on the down low for so long. Social media has changed how fans communicate too in that many follow David on twitter, Facebook, Instagram and they comment there instead of on fan-sites. I think it’s really great that FOD is still here after all this time still posting weekly about David. Time changes things but I have nothing but good things to say about FOD. David is still a tour draw in Utah-Idaho-Arizona, and hopefully will be able to tour elsewhere. Touring is where the money is in the music business, not the actual music as people don’t buy much music anymore.

      • GrammyJ says:

        I wouldn’t say David has fallen either. He is doing music his way, has a private life yet he makes money doing concerts in beautiful venues in Utah, Idaho and Arizona. He also gets to sing throughout the world. This year he sang in Taiwan, China, and Europe. Not too shabby in my opinion, and I certainly wouldn’t say he has “fallen”.

    Al and the ex ODDer the same person? heads up.. won’t work we don’t care we love David and FOD 🙂

    • Al says:

      Nope. Nice try though. I don’t know why you always attack me. I don’t appreciate the smear though, so if you have any evidence, publish the IP address is. But you won’t have any evidence because it wasn’t me. So please stop.

      It’s funny how you pride yourself on Love & peace & happiness & tolerance, but when it comes to someone who simply expresses that there is a shadow on his face, or he’s thin, or that I noticed vibrato change, you go nuts. None of that is negative, per se, it’s simply not mindless praise. I’m sorry if I am not a fan girl. It’s just not the way I am about anyone or anything.

      I comment very infrequently but honestly and openly and love David as much as the next day and since the very beginning. So just because I have a critical eye doesn’t mean that I’m a troll. I don’t know who that person was, & I don’t think it was very nice of them to say what they said. I’m sure the fans are out there but they just don’t know about this new development yet because he’s been out of the spotlight for a long while and doesn’t have a major label pushing the promotion. Hoping he’ll catch a break

    #AmericanIdol alum @DavidArchie debuts #Numb video


    American Idol season 7 runner-up David Archuleta gets in touch with nature in new music video released Friday (Nov. 18) for his song “Numb.

    In the clip — directed by Dusty Barker (who also recently worked with fellow Idol alum Carrie Underwood) — the video captures Archuleta as he takes a stroll through Big East Fork, a working farm that offers a retreat for visitors seeking a natural sanctuary. The farm offers hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boating, horseshoe, yoga, farm animals and more.

    David Archuleta, “Numb”
    ‘American Idol’ Alum David Archuleta Opens Up With New Song ‘Numb’: Watch a Lyric Video
    “Wow, I can’t believe this song and video are actually out now!” Archuleta wrote on his Facebook page. “It came from such a real place for me. We shot the video outside and alone to capture what it feels like to connect with oneself. Sometimes you have to separate yourself from everything to connect to something deeper. I hope that you can feel that energy. Thanks so much for all the love!”

    Archuleta’s Christmas tour kicks off in Utah on Nov. 25 with Nathan Pacheo. Tickets are available at his website.

    Dusty Barker worked with Carrie too 🙂

    love the video think kind of perfect for where David is now.. it is him!

  44. kimk says:

    Miss Bianca think David’s Numb video will bring folks in for many reasons.. message lol the closeups good song video nature.. not sure if it will do as well don’t really care David is doing what he wants to do singing what he wants to sing all is good. not that we won’t stop trying to help out see lots of sweet fans going at it. again we just love David 🙂

    David Archuleta at Seacrest Studios in Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital

  51. kimk says:

    Al ha well you can say what you wish.. me not into the rainbows others are
    as for the other stuff it was David who said he wants to go on the down low so all this doesn’t matter how well he does with his music etc he isn’t doing it to be popular. I did say he was skinny if you read what I said.. as for nuts nah we didn’t just replied. let me ask you this.. you asked about the trend.. did you try to trend? 🙂
    bet not.
    ha kind of like the election folks complaining but not participating where it counts the most.
    as for the concerts kind of all we have not me but we get videos and such. hope that he comes east so I can go too has been 5 years. sucks.

    as for the other person whoever they are kind of like it when folks pop up that means David is coming back.. I for one would love for him to mop up the Biebs face with his music. will he nope but that is ok too cause David is doing it his way. his call.
    as for FOD.. they are amazing look to the other sites fans who went poof they are still chugging along loving David. love it here even if I am so different then others here. what makes it all great. we may love David yet are so different. that is so cool just in itself.

  52. Oinkiers says:

    Good morning Mods and Fod!! Good morning. First off I want to thank everyone one for their thoughts and prayers!! It has been extremely trying time with the loss of my husband but my kids and I are hanging in there. Thank you so much for the card.

    On another note my mom and sister have surprised me with tickets to see David in Indiana. We are soo excited. It will be the first time any of us have seen him in concert. Well Jen my sister seen him with tabernacle choir. Their are know words of how excited I am. 😆

    David’s video is sooooooo great. I love it!!

    • sydnie says:

      Hi Oinkiers! So glad to know you and the kids are doing fine, thanks for letting us know!
      Congrats on the concert tickets to see David, I’ll be going to Sacramento yay!

    • Kalei says:

      That’s so awesome!! Will you be able to attend the Indy fan lunch? It sounds like a super fun time!! Please report back how you liked the show – us Western Archies won’t see the Christmas shows until late December – it will be great to anticipate the awesomeness to come!

  53. Oinkiers says:

    *well there are no words…..

    • VaBeachArchie says:

      Good morning Oinkiers! So happy to hear you will
      be going to your first David concert! Christmas concerts are AMAZING! The holidays are slwsys hard do hang in there. Let your family, friends and memories bolster you this holiday season. ((Hugs))

  54. Alwaysafan says:

    Someone posted above about an Instagram story of David at the DMV, it’s not Davids tho, he does have one but it was from the children’s hospital yesterday. I don’t know where that DMV one was from, there was no link in the post. Welcome back Oinkiers;)

    • sydnie says:

      Hi Alwaysafan! Oh well Dmv photo probably would’ve been all that exciting anyway lol the children hospital is great! 🙂

    • GrammyJ says:

      David did do an Instagram story where he showed that he was at the DMV and the female clerks were taking selfies with him. It was at the end of the one he did about the children’s hospital. Hopefully a fan recorded it because it is a hoot.

    • CJ says:

      He did do one, I saw it. Employees were taking a selfie with him while he was taking pics of them. it was cute.

    • Kalei says:

      Hi Always,
      It was an IG story which is posted at the top of your IG page in the little cirlces – it’s not a regular IG post and goes poof after 24 hours. You have to watch it on a mobile device as I haven’t found a way to view it on a computer.

      We usually try to record them before they go poof, but this time, I don’t think anyone recorded it – we’ll keep looking and post it if we find a recording.

  55. kimk says:

    Oinkiers hi!!! so happy you are going to Indy cheer bop some for me!! hugs!!!

  56. sydnie says:

    Eeeeekk VIP here we come!
    Ali thank you very much for the link to buy Sacto VIP tickets this Christmas will be extra special woohoo! My last VIP didn’t go so well lol this time I’ll be better prepared haha!

    Tweeting party was so much fun last night, glad I was able to participated! Us Archies sure are creative (not this one tho lol)! 😀

    • sydnie says:

      Oops ‘participate’

    • VaBeachArchie says:

      Good morning sydnie! Glad to hear you got your VIP! ALWAYS A BLAST! The trending party was FUN! I too am not as creative…but get the word out! Always ENJOY the fan art and pics! Sad not more joined the fun and we didn’t trend….would have been GREAT to see after all this time and really would have got some attention for David and Numb!

    • Kalei says:

      Sydnie! I’ll be at Sac and have VIP too – so I’ll see you there!

  57. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning guys! A SUPER Saturday to all! 🙂

    Thanks Kalei for the update and all the ARCHUGOODIES! David has certainly been busy and LOVE that he shared with his fans on social media! What FUN! He is AMAZING…not only as a entertainer but as a person! 🙂

    ENJOY your day! Start of the CRAZINESS … retail nightmare fot the next month!

    • sydnie says:

      Hi VaBeachArchie, hope you survive the shopping madness lol!

      • VaBeachArchie says:

        Thanks sydnie! Been in retail for 40 years…love it….but over the years it’s not about the season it’s about greed! Draw the line at working Thanksgiving! ENJOY your day my friend! 🙂

    • Kalei says:

      Thx VBA! It’s been a non-stop whirlwind since Tuacahn! I’m glad David is getting good reviews on Numb – can’t wait for the album!

  58. sydnie says:

    Kimk I very much appreciate all the D related links and tweets you’re bringing over here, excitement all around!!!

    Wow Kalei didn’t know you’ve organized so many amazing fan get togethers you sure do have mad organization skills amongst all you’re other talents! Also thank you for sharing your memorable Tuachan experience your recap is awesome and so is Angela’s!

    • Kalei says:

      Hi Sydnie!
      Glad you enjoyed the Tuacahn recaps – it still feels like a dream! I love planning fan events/lunches because part of the fun of being an Archie is meeting so many amazing fans and making friends for life! I’ve met so many fans from 8 years ago and we’re all still friends today!

      I actually have planned 10 lunches before Tuacahn 2.0 – I did one at Bucca di Beppo in Cali – we made David BEGIN. fans and water bottles lol – that was fun!

      Wish I had time to plan one for Sac, but we’ll be traveling from Costa Mesa the day before, so there’s no time – maybe we can all meet at a restaurant!

  59. sydnie says:

    OMG I love the Numb MV! Other than David’s obvious unique & perfect vocals and visually beautiful scenery it’s calm yet emotive, simple yet complex, an absolute gem – sure hope it’ll be part of the Christmas tour setlists!

  60. sydnie says:

    Au revoir guys, time for my French class! Not sure why I continue to go not that I’m improving all that much blergh!

  61. Ali says:

    Alwaysafan – David posted an IG story from the DMV yesterday, actually 2 of them. You can’t link to it because IG stories don’t have specific links — you just have to go to David’s IG account and watching it from the little bubble link at the top. It’s only viewable for 24 hours.

    • kmb says:

      Do you have to log in to Instagram to see it? I usually just go to the website and don’t log in because I don’t have the app. Maybe I should. The most recent thing I can find on the website (not logged in) is David w/Cutout Ryan.

      • Janel aka Nellie says:

        Yes you do. It doesn’t stay on there though. As other people you follow on Instagram add their IG stories, others get pushed out. Only 30 can be viewed. David’s right now is the last one on my Instagram stories (of the people I follow) that I can see. Soon it won’t be there anymore. It might be different for other people depending on who they follow and who shares new IG stories.

        • MissBianca says:

          And even if you log in, you can’t see Instagram stories on a desktop browser, only a phone or table app. Which means I generally only see them here. Bless those who know how to record them!

        • MissBianca says:

          Tablet app, not table. Sorry. That was probably confusing.

  62. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Wow……so many of you David fans are back……Welcome Back to the fold…….David is truly an amazing artist and I am so glad he has healed and feels he is ready to interact with his fans again…..I watched the 30 minute video from Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital last night and it reminded me of all the interviews David used to do post AI……He is just his rambling loveable self…….I am so lucky and honored to be a David fan……Miss Vicki

  63. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    BTW…..love that he had some stuble of a mustache on the black and white parts of his videos when he is just singing……Makes him look older and edgy!!!!!! Great marketing technique…….bet he shaved right after that shoot……hahahah……..Miss Vicki

  64. kmb says:

    And if no one captures the IG story at the DMV, could someone please describe what happens? Is David getting his license renewed there? He must “officially” live there if he’s going to their DMV, but he’s never said, “I live in Nashville now.” (Unless this is his way of telling us ;)).

    • GrammyJ says:

      David has said in interviews several times and on stage that he lives in Nashville now. Yes, he must have been at the DMV to either get or renew his license in Tennessee. I just checked and the story is still there. It starts with David showing the female DMV clerk and he says that they are taking a selfie. Then he shows himself and says that he is actually taking a picture of her taking a selfie – just a day at the DMV. Then he shows himself walking outside the DMV saying how nice they were. Typical David!

    • CJ says:

      Actually he has said he lives in Nashville at least a couple times that I remember including his recent video at the children’s hospital. According to David Cook, D, lives in the suburb of Hendersonville, Tenn. If you go to wikipedia for Hendersonville, it lists David Archuleta as living there.

  65. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    kmb…..David said in the 30 minute video at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital that he now lives in Nashville and he has lived there for almost 2 years now……guess he “lives” there….but is not home much with all the traveling back and forth….I missed the IG story……Miss Vicki

  66. Rapport says:

    When David says he “lives” somewhere, I wonder if he’s actually got his own place that he decorated himself, or if he’s a perennial bunker with one of his many, many, many relatives scattered — it seems — in every corner of the U.S. I know he has a big, big family who would all love for him to live with them. LOL

    Is he a home decor/design kind of guy? Polka dots or stripes or basics? Low lighting or bright lighting? Hard mattress or soft mattress? Matching towels or who cares?


    • GrammyJ says:

      I really don’t know for sure but I think David has his own place in Nashville. I don’t think he has a relative there and since he has stated he lives in Nashville he must have an apartment, condo or home in the area. He has never let us in on that part of his life. Probably because he doesn’t want any strange fan to show up at his house.

  67. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I always add views of David’s videos on his Facebook because it seems as though more people view there than on YT these days. Also there’s Vimeo and other video websites where people go to view videos, which might be the reason for lower views on YT (though Numb is not on Vimeo as far as I know).
    Almost 59K views for Numb on YT, but nearing 200K on Facebook.
    The Prayer I count views on David’s and Nathan’s FB as well as YT. The Prayer has 4,755,396 views on YT, 9,663,523 views on David’s FB and another 3,052,228 views on Nathan’s FB. The combined is 17,491,147 views. Incredible. Add that to the fact that The Prayer is number 6 on iTunes Christmas songs.

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      Also note that if someone views a video when it is shared on FB or Twitter by a fan, unless they go to the YT link, the view isn’t counted. In other words if they are viewing it while on FB or Twitter. I say that only because a lot people are sharing it in both places.

      • MissBianca says:

        Janel, I did some research on Facebook views vs. YouTube views and it is true that YouTube only counts “Click to View” views of its videos. However, if Team David is (are?) embedding the links properly, it doesn’t matter what platform (FB, YT) the click comes from, it will be counted on YouTube as long as it is watched for 30 seconds or more. The 30 seconds thing has to do with autoplay.

        The “Number of Views” count on FB is the number of times the post has been viewed, not the video.

        Now I have a headache. Why can’t things like this be more simple?

  68. Ali says:

    Here is link to where @DavidUniverse reposted all 3 IG “stories” that David posted yesterday. There are different than just regular IG posts.
    He posted one from the hospital and two from the DMV.

    • kmb says:

      Thanks Ali (and DavidUniverse for the capture). That really made me smile! 🙂 Classic David. Love how REAL and DOWN-TO-EARTH he is.

  69. kmb says:

    Thanks for answering, Miss Vicki and GrammyJ. I don’t blame him for not sharing where he lives due to the “crazy fan” aspect. I’m sure Nashville loves having him and he loves Nashville, so it’s all good. I very much admire him for having a private life that is actually private while still being in the public eye. (Granted, I don’t read tabloids or celebrity gossip so I wouldn’t know what people choose to dig up/twist and put there). His twitter still says “Kind of Utah…).

    I hadn’t listened to the FB thing carefully yet (I did just now) or I would have known that *facepalm*

  70. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    kmb…..My brother-in-law and his family live in Franklin, TN……I just gotta take a road trip to see them and stop off in Hendersonville……Hope David does do a concert in Nashville…..I would try to go and combine the concert with a family visit…..love the DMV video…..He is such a celebrity that even the DMV gals wanna a pic!!!!!! Miss Vicki

  71. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Comment on David’s pad and how it might be decorated…..Didn’t he recently do a video blog from a room that looked like a house or apt. with a white mantel with a pumpkin on top of the mantel……my guess is he has an apartment that is decorated very simply…..or just furniture with not much else…..I know my son who has his own bachelor pad isn’t into all the paintings, decorations and stuff……Miss Vicki

    • Good morning guys! HAPPY Sunday! 🙂

      On David’s abode….Think he is getting it together! Didn’t he just buy a bed or mattress? Think there was a pic with the guy? Got to be hard getting your place together when you are on the road like David is! Speaking about being on the road….CHRISTMAS CONCERTS ARE COMING! 🙂

      ENJOY your day! Guess I have to get my boots out …..41 here this morning! Sandals are a NO! 🙁

  72. Alwaysafan says:

    I know how to view Davids Instagram stories, it’s just that I watched it again after someone posted about the DMV earlier today and it only played the first part when David was at Seacrest Studios and stopped there. Don’t know why I couldn’t see the second part at the DMV, but thanks to those fans who saved the video 😉

  73. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey guys….Up late watching all things David……In the interview at Vanderbilt they asked David what his favorite word was and he said “uhmm”. If you listen to him in that interview and all the time he talks the word he uses the most is “ACTUALLY”……Night all……Miss Vicki

  74. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Morning to VirginiaBeachArchie, kimk, and all the FOD regular peeps who are here on Sunday mornings……Night all…..Miss Vicki

    SoreWaSore1 day ago
    I just love the fact that this song, and this video, feels very personal. Personal in a way that’s reflected where David Archuleta is the only person in this video, surrounded by a sort of ‘raw’ and ‘natural’ background; nothing flashy pops out. The fact that he’s alone in this MV and he’s singing this song about numbness and the difficulty to move on; how one has self-struggles where only they themselves can overcome it. Those scenes of him walking in solitary while singing his heart out until he’s out under the rays of the sun. It’s a simple video and I may be looking into it too much, but it just feels like there’s a lot of thought put into shooting this in order to suit the nature and message of the song.

    Thanks, David Archuleta, for sharing with us ‘Numb’.

    Glad to see some people still appreciate his music. It's so annoying that this song isn't receiving as much love as it deserves. Those new sh*tty songs with sh*tty lyrics about money, girls will be everywhere on the radio and tv and great songs will again disappear under them

  93. Ali says:

    Just saw that American Idol posted the Billboard article about David’s video to their FB page too. It has 1.4k likes already and nice comments, many about how much he’s grown up since the show and how it’s good to hear from him again 🙂

    • kimk says:

      thanks Ali! seems to be the theme.. they like the song the video he has grown up but still has a great voice. oh and they missed him 🙂

  94. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    So glad that AI posted the Billboard article bout David….kimk…..so sorry your son left…..I am Numb cause this is the first year my son, who is our only child, decided to go to his girlfriend’s family’s house in another city for Thanksgiving…..my boy is all grown up and there is now “another woman”…….Miss Vicki

  95. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:
