During this very special time of rebirth and renewal, we wish all of our readers a blessed Easter.

From David this Easter

What a truly moving video.  Carefully, beautifully done.

Celebrate the day with David Archuleta in rejoiceful song

When the Son of Man (Comes Again).  From Shelley’s Vid in Nampa ID last summer

And from Kari’s periscope.  Still so celebratory!

And the most beautiful In Christ Alone that David sang last Easter in Arizona.

I have loved My Little Prayer since the first time I heard it.

I haven’t posted this before, I took it in Tuacahn, and it holds a special place in my heart.  I’m so thankful David recorded it, but I still find this version no less than perfect.

Wishing you all a blessed day.

    Happy Easter Pastel and everyone! Thanks for a beautiful post!!

    Happy Easter!

    Continuing the discussion from the last thread, I agree with everyone who stated that it would behoove David to make himself more available, not less, during this promotional period. These communication breaks are just fine when he doesn’t have anything to promote, but unfortunately, they are likely detrimental when he has something cooking in the musical kitchen…so to speak! Frankly, I do believe that he makes up his own mind and does what he wants to do, for I doubt that any professional management or promotional firm would recommend a lengthy communications hiatus in the lead up tto a new album.

    Orion. I find the entire concept intriguing. The artwork is classical but a bit abstract o& esoteric given that we don’t know what the album is really about yet. Maybe a bit cerebral for most of his audience? No offense to the younger ones. Just wondering how his lyrics, overall theme, album title & artwork will fit together in the end. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! Hopefully he will let us in on the answers & not make us figure out some crazy riddle! Ha ha.

    Now I can’t resist: What on earth are people talking about with this girlfriend…no, fiancée…no, bride 2017?? Am I missing something? Have we seen her? Do we know her name? Has anyone in his circle told us that he is dating, much less getting married?
    Seems like rampant speculation at this point. But then again, knowing how David likes to be coy…well, I’m not sure if that’s the right word…um, secretive…um, not sure that’s the right word either…um, evasive…well, getting closer… PRIVATE!…yes, maybe that’s it, …then…well…who the heck knows? I guess I wouldn’t be shocked if he announced his marriage after the fact! Ha!

    @kimak D did new song last nite, one he wrote “I Know He Lives”, starts 7:10 into vid, choppy sound, <3 the vibe!


  5. kimk says:

    Al lol hope this week that hurricane wipes us out

  6. kimk says:

    Al agree with most of all you have said.. as for the sweet gal well from what I know thru the years there are peeps who ‘know’ stuff.

  7. kimk says:

    kind of like the vibe of the new song.. love it when he lets go

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Really like it too! David has written quite a few original inspirational songs…he could put out an EP!

  8. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! HAPPY Easter! 🙂

  9. sydnie says:

    Happy Easter Everyone!
    Thank you Pastel for the lovely Easter Celebration post!
    Aren’t we supposed to get a new song tomorrow? Can’t wait to hear it and download from iTunes!

  10. Grammyj says:

    Al, look back in January on David’s Instagram. He has a picture of himself, his cousin and his cousin’s wife plus a young woman that he calls his sweet traveling companion. Many of us are guessing that she is his girlfriend that is rumored he will be marrying. Her first name is Dana (can’t remember her last name). She is from Mexico but is rumored to be living in Nashville and is a returned missionary. We shall see if she really is David’s girlfriend/fiancé.

    • Grammyj says:

      Ha! Ha! I love the video posted above of David singing “Come Thou Fount”, his new song, “I Know He Lives” and “Glorious”. I love the new song! It has kind of a jazzy, spiritual vibe like something that would be sung with a black choir. Not your normal Mormon hymn, and he had people clap along at the end. I am so glad someone videotaped it and posted it to you tube!

  17. kimk says:

    concert started already periscope..


  18. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Happy Easter everyone!!!!! Al, I see kimk filled you in on David’s sweet traveling companion……David and Dana…..sounds so good together…….very alliterative…… Can’t hear the new song too well ……sounds jazzy though…..Yep kim…..the hurricane is on it’s way….only a few more days till Up All Night comes out……Love David’s post for Easter…..and that he is sining for his church over the Easter holiday……seems like he has his priorities straight to me…..plenty of time to get ready for that huricanne a comin’…….Miss Vicki

  19. kimk says:

    ha sorry on purpose just kidding.. in a way anyway for sure they are like us Archies he sings we come running 🙂

  20. kimk says:

    looked around couldn’t find anything yet

    • kimk says:

      omgosh that was great hope he records this!!

      • Grammyj says:

        I’m so happy we got a better recording of this song. I wonder if David will release EPs that have a theme. He could have an EP of his Comtempory Christian song like this one, My Little Prayer, He Showed Me How, and When the Son of Man Comes Again.

        • Jani says:

          I would like that, too.
          I love the vibe of I Know He Lives…
          the message, the beat, the melody, and
          that Davids vocals are front and center,
          and fabulous! Hope he records this.

      • CJ says:

        Me too. Soulful David is my favorite singing David.

  21. Al says:

    Thanks to kimk & GrammyJ for the education. My goodness, I must have been asleep at the switch for a while there! Exciting. I guess only time will tell.

    • Jani says:

      Yeah, and when he said he wasn’t dating anyone, it was technically true because she was on her mission. 😉 Aww, sure would be nice if it’s true. Though he would break more than a few hearts!

  22. Kalei says:

    Happy Easter everyone! This Friday we get the new song Up All Night!!

    David, you are perfect the way you are…such a great role model for youth. Wish you could have come to Mexico for Dana Martinez’s missionary farewell. Her talk in church was just so beautiful, so sincere and mature! You would have been proud of her! I see her at the Colonia Juarez temple on Tuesday nights. You both are such special young adults. Buena Suerte en Nashville. Thanks for the MUSIC!

    Comments section:


    OK, It’s public information (on Google), so I don’t feel too bad about revealing it but…… Verry interesting that it’s a relationship potentially well over two years old!! Wow!

  24. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! A MAGNIFICENT Monday to all! 🙂

    Thanks Ali for the GREAT I Know He Lives video! LOVE IT!


  25. kimk says:

    good morning folks!

    Ali thanks!

    Kalei omgosh you are right.. wonder if another snippet will pop up this week? 🙂

    Al ha well there you go.. will be interesting to see what will happen me I am pulling for them especially if it means we get more love songs 🙂

  28. kimk says:

    okie dokie off to get more paint.. pack etc for Seattle sure wish this was for the concert trip but hey seeing my gbabies lol is pretty good too. 😉
    wonder if things will start happening now.. ha I feel a hurricane a coming! 🙂
    have a great y’all!

  29. Al says:

    kink — “ha” is right! Love the idea of more love songs, as well–to whomever said that. I just hope… I guess I just wonder sometimes if people do things for themselves or because others expect them to do so. But that goes for all of us in life
    on a variety of subjects. Not that there isn’t a specific precedent for marriage pressure in the religious community. To seek one’s lifetime companion as early as possible I’d thought to be a noble endeavor. I think I’ve read where some church leaders have said something like “it’s a waste of time to wait” …or something like “you can’t find the perfect soulmate so you should just find someone with whom you are compatible and get going on making babies.” Lol. Basically. Young people are waiting longer and longer to get married largely because they see so many failed marriages out there. I think we’re up to a 65% divorce rate. Financial considerations and delayed maturity often enter into the equation, as well. I often wonder if one is truly ready at 21 or 23 or 26 to commit oneself to another person for life. It seems like most people in their 20s, much like David has expressed himself, are still searching to find themselves, to understand themselves…. Of course that can be a lifelong process to some degree, i.e., bettering oneself. But perhaps it’s not a great idea to become one with another individual until you’ve at least got yourself figured out. I just hope he’s happy, whatever he decides. That will be fine by his fans, I’m sure. Myself included.

    • Marylee~NorthCarolinaGirl says:

      Al ~ I agree with all you said about figuring our oneself before committing to another for life. Married at 19 and, while I would definitely marry my hubs all over again, would do it at a later age for the reasons you brought up. 🙂

  30. kimk says:

    got married at 18 still married tons of years later.. either way I am ok with
    as for David being pressured into marriage because of his faith.. well if there will be a ton of babies coming soon he better get cracking start promoting his music he will need tons of moola! diapers are not cheap! 😆

  31. kimk says:

    Jani ha well kind of think he won’t be breaking too many hearts think most are like finally.. a girl pops up. first time we really saw him be serious about anyone least it seems he may be.

  32. kimk says:

    waving howdy to all the peeps up top! 🙂

    agree he should put out a Christian EP.. maybe he is didn’t he say there are a series of EPs?

  33. Martha says:

    It would be nice if his EPs were: Pop, Spanish, Gospel, Christmas. Nothing against duets but hopefully solo performances.
    We will see!

  34. kimk says:

    David is 26.. not 18 or 19

    that being said I remember when my hubs we were 18 and 19 we told our parents we wanted to live together (it was the 70’s) it was pretty much ‘over our dead bodies’ as I recall. pretty sure his faith does not allow that as well.. you want to be together you get married.

    as for having a lot of babies.. not against it just as long as it is even steven with the care etc not always the case sometimes the women are stuck doing it all.

    • Grammyj says:

      David is definitely old enough to get married. I got married at 20 but that was back in the day when most of us married young. I think many young adults wait too long now. To me 26 is a great age to get married. The key is for both partners to work at the marriage. I think selfishness is the cause of many divorces IMHO.

    • Martha says:

      The 70’s, quite a time to be alive lol. These matters are really up to the couple, with lots of thought given to the relationship. Since she has come back from a mission she may be at least 21 (women can go at 19 for 18 months I understand). If they are mature and she knows what to expect, then go for it. (What am I saying, they don’t need my permission LOL!) With like interests and life goals, it sounds good.
      Probably will hear something on this subject “soon” or “very soon”. 😆

    • Martha says:

      Oh, I got married at 31 haha. Had my baby at 37. Had friends that did the same.

  35. kimk says:

    David Archuleta- Come Thou Fount


  36. kimk says:

    David Archuleta- Glorious


  37. kimk says:

    think that is it in a nutshell folks today they wait to get married.. but a lot of them they also don’t wait with other stuff they experience it all.

  38. kimk says:

    ahh yes the 70’s.. lol happy I survived. 😉

  39. JustJess says:

    Interesting comments today lol with all the ambiguity we’re working with it’s sure gonna be fun & exciting to see how David’s love life really turns out! I bet if he did get married and start having kids they would be THE cutest little Archie-family!

  40. kimk says:

    my two older sons all thru their early years they swore they would never get married ha well both of them are now with 5 little ones between them. they were older when they got married. rofl good too boy did they experience a lot before they got married kind of think they are still on the wild side come to think about it. can’t really say hubs and I were ever too strict with all that lol we just wanted grandbabies.

  41. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    OMG…..I just love I Know He Lives….so so soulful and so David……this man can sing the phone book…..as for the marriage conversation….I think David is VERY careful about his relationships and if he is serious about his traveling companion, he has had a good amount of time to contemplate her as his mate….I trust the Archuleta…..and yep JustJess…..it would tickle me pink to see David with some rug rats!!!!! He has a great head on his shoulders and he would make a great dad!!!!! Miss Vicki

  42. kimk says:

    nothing popped up that I can tell yet.. so is there really going to be a hurricane or was kari joshing us?

    • Grammyj says:

      We haven’t heard from Kari in awhile. I am not expecting a hurricane. The new song and EP will be great. He has a tour in June. Hopefully a few appearances to promote the EP. I’m not expecting a lot more than that except more concert dates hopefully and maybe a picture from his wedding lol.

      • kimk says:

        so you think it was all a lot of huey? ok then well I am excited to hear Up All Night tour well hope for vids not really excited

  43. potluck8 says:

    Hi Kimk and everyone.
    I was wondering the same thing Kimk, maybe after his new song comes out on Friday things will take off, maybe not a hurricane but I’m hoping for at least a a big gust of wind, Video would be nice!

  44. Ali says:

    Kari said they shot a video, I assume it was for Up All Night. With the single coming out Friday and TOFW the same day, I bet things will be happening this week. I assume they will fly up to Alaska on Thursday.

    While I suspect there will be promo for the single I think they will focus more promo around the EP itself coming out.

    Also loving I Know He Lives!

  45. Ali says:

    I do wonder if they will release the video for Up All Night on Friday or if they’ll have a lyric video like with Numb? I’m kinda hoping for just releasing the full video when the song comes out.

    I also wonder if David will sing I Know He Lives at TOFW. Or if he’ll do the same set he did last year? I’m hoping for different songs this time around 🙂

  46. kimk says:

    Ali all that Works For Me!

    good morning folks.. new thread! 🙂
