David Archuleta ~ Fun in the Phils! David Visits The Rappler, Eat Bulaga, MOR 101.9, UKG and More! Vids! Tix On Sale for Abravanel Hall SLC, Postcards In The Sky – One More Day!


He’s Keeping Us Up All Night!

David’s acoustic performances of Up All Night and Invincible are amazing! A different vibe than the recorded versions, but just as captivating – he can truly sing ANYTHING!

I will be the first to admit that there is a staggering amount of promo coming from the Phils – interviews galore, press cons, tv performances and fan interactions of every shape and kind – David has taken the Philippines by storm and we are blessed with an embarrassment of riches courtesy of the wonderful Pinoy fans! Six years of absence has not dimmed their love and support for David, and they are in full celebration mode!

There are hours of content to review and so many amazing interviews where David bares his soul and talks about some painful and difficult events in his past that have shaped who he is today, and who he is still becoming – an ongoing evolution to be comfortable in his skin and to battle the demons of anxiety and self-doubt that have plagued him for many years.

It’s a peek behind the curtain that is both sobering and insightful – it’s David at his best true self – Postcards in the Sky reflects this journey of discovery, and what can be found by looking up.


No one says it better than David Archuleta!


Keeping Up With David

– credit Wish Bus

This has been a whirlwind of a tour so far, and the concert isn’t until tomorrow! I’ve had the pleasure of gathering up all the social media content, and there has been a TON so far, documenting David’s visits to various interviews and live events throughout Manila, and if I’m feeling this tired just reading about it, I can’t even imagine how David feels!

David’s triumphant return to the Philippines has been a gold mine of live feeds, vids and pics from the Pinoy fans who, as Joanie so aptly put it, “must have all majored in Pop journalism” haha! 🙂 It’s not just the sheer quantity of content, but the high quality of the interviews and hi-def vids and pics that make this tour so special – it’s just like being there!

So this post is going to be a highlight reel of sorts – a little bit of everything that David has done with links to sources where you can get more in depth coverage. Almost everyone is on social media and gets a lot of this content real time, so you can peruse this post to see things you may have missed, or to re-watch some of the great interviews because they were all so wonderful!

Looking forward to tomorrow when we’ll hopefully get some Periscopes of the live concert, and will also get our downloads of Postcards in the Sky! It’s gonna be exciting!

Live on Rappler!

I watched this live! Acoustic Crush is amazing! The vid starts at :45 seconds

  1. Joanie/suttygal MN says:

    Oh my goodness, Kalei, I can’t say enough about the amazing job you’re doing of gathering and bringing all of David’s “happenings” in the Philippines to us here!! Thank you so much! And your words about PITS at the beginning of the post sum it up in such a beautiful way :
    “It’s a peek behind the curtain that is both sobering and insightful – it’s David at his best true self – Postcards In The Sky reflects this journey of discovery, and what can be found by looking up.”
    Now in the spirit of David and the way he answered Robin’s comment on the fb live the other night re: staying up late and not wanting to miss anything~ “Go To Bed!!” 😘❤️

  2. Bobanna says:

    Howdy everyone! Kalei, thank you so much for this amazing post! My heart is full seeing all the love and respect David is receiving in the Philippines. You can see the joy and gratefulness in his face. Thank you to all the Pinoy Archie fans for showing their love and sharing all these wonderful videos with us! Can’t wait for tomorrows concert. I’m sure it will be one of the epic ones! Finally…the tidal wave we’ve been waiting for! 🙂

    • GrammyJ says:

      Yes to all you said! I’m glad David is doing promo for his new album in the Philippines where they love and respect him. It’s been so fun to watch and it is a hurricane!

    • Bobanna says:

      It breaks my heart to see him try and contain his emotions during that performance. He poured his heart and soul into this album and it’s obvious how much these songs mean to him. 🙁

  6. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Omg….it’s Christmas in Archuletaland…..so so many goodies……love David’s performace of Numb that you just posted above kimk…..he got so passionate he got all choked up….I am just so proud of David for overcoming his demons and continuing with his music career……..Just sad that he can’t get the recognition he so deserves here in the US……Philipino fans got it right!!!!!! Miss Vicki

  7. Cathy says:

    Oh my, Mr. David Archuleta, you have out done yourself with Postcards in The Sky! Amazing! I am speechless as to the difference in this album. I LOVE “Upset with Me”. The “layering” of that song is amazing. Listening with my Bose headset, it engulfed me like no other song has ever done. I believe he is talking about his previous management and record label in this. It is almost like he has been reviling a lot of things during this weeks interviews, more so than he ever has.

  8. Cindy921 says:

    Wow! I have been listening to the newest songs on Postcards In The Sky and they are breathtaking! I love Upset With Me, Seasons is absolutely beautiful and Aiming for Hope is incredible! You can feel David’s heart in each one of these songs. Well worth the wait. Well done, David. Well done.

  9. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! A FANTASTIC Friday it is! Got Postcards In The Sky last night at 12:04 last night on Amazon! 🙂

    Going to be spending this early morning listening to Postcards In The Sky on repeat! Hard to pick favorites on just one listen! Must say I got teary eyed listening to some of the lyrics!

    Nana patrol! ENJOYNyour day! If you haven’t got your copy of Postcards In The Sky, what are you waiting for! BEST album yet! ❤

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

    Hello Everyone!
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Postcards, wonderful album. Yes, Upset With Me,
    Cracks of Heaven & Seasons, WOW. Then you have the other songs which
    are incredible as well. My oh my, what a Glorious Friday. Thank You David
    for sharing your thoughts, experiences, pain & heart with us, you have helped
    people, more than you know, with your music in the past, just as you will in
    the present, with this album & I’m sure with your future music as well. <3 😀

    Sorry to post & run, gotta go, Take Care All, TTYL!

    omgosh Upset With Me is so sad.. kind of think I know who it is about just don’t want to say. wonder if he will sing it live.
    loving the cd the songs all fit.. perfect!!!

    • GrammyJ says:

      I think we might be thinking of the same person. I’m sure he will never say. It could also be taken as some of us fans were upset when he went on his mission. I know he really needed to go and it helped him so much, but at the time I was upset with him.

    You guys !!! This new music of Davids is beyond amazing. I love every song . His voice, the melodies, the lyrics, the uniqueness of each song, the authenticity that comes through on each track, just wow!!! Couldn’t be prouder . And thank you so much for keeping us updated on David’s time in Manila. You are doing a fantastic job !!!

  21. Grannycrush says:

    Boy, I certainly started this day on a happy note. This new music is really special. David can really build a song. When I heard a couple of the starts of the songs, I wasn’t to sure I would like it, but then David did that “David” thing where he changes things up and soon I am thinking that might be my favorite song ever. The problem (really not a problem) is that the next song becomes my favorite. I can’t pick a favorite. They are all wonderful and so well done from David’s voice to the music. Brady and David make a perfect team. This is an amazing album!

  25. kimk says:

    Aiming For Hope might be my fav.. so beautiful sad at the same time.

  26. GrammyJ says:

    I’m currently listening to David’s new album and trying to keep up with the tweet from David’s concert. I’m having a great time doing both! It is Christmas in Davidland. I’m so glad I have a free morning. I cried when I listened to “Upset With Me”, “Cracks of Heaven”and “Seasons”. This is a fantastic album. I remember fans speculating back in the day if David would be a good songwriter or if he should just sing covers. This album answers that question – he can write great songs.

    • kimk says:

      yes to all of that.. lol lost here myself! love how all the songs fit.. not sure I have a fav they are all great love Aiming For Hope not sure why but that one sticks out. just listened to the whole cd once though all fabulous!

    like this jacket better then the maroon one.. looking good!

  31. GrammyJ says:

    Wow, I just finished listening to the new album, and I love all the songs. I haven’t seen many talk about the last song “A Little Goes A Long Way” so I thought maybe that one wouldn’t be as good but it’s fabulous too! It’s a really catchy tune and I love the production. It ended the album on an upbeat note. Bravo David on a fantastic album. It was worth the wait.

  32. GrammyJ says:

    My dear writer is doing an Instagram Live of the concert but it paused for me. David was singing Elevator with the crowd singing along.

  33. Grannycrush says:

    Why am I having so much trouble trying not to cry. The lyrics of the songs are so poignant. Having followed David since Idol and knowing this is his album that comes from his heart, it makes me sad knowing what he has been through, but it makes me happy that he has been able to let it go so beautifully with his music. I love this album!
