A night filled with stars…

Despite a few hiccups in the logistics, David filled the Green Arena with his sublime voice, and under a starry sky, the Peru fans sang along with David, loving every minute of the show!



Peru Rocks & Spanish Rules!

David’s trip to Peru has been a whirlwind of interviews laced with some beautiful acoustic versions of Numb and Crush. Accompanied by Asaf on the guitar, David’s silky voice gave fans a taste of what to expect from the full concert set scheduled for Green Arena last night.

radioplanetafm featured a lovely duet of Crush!


¡Mafe cumplió su sueño y cantó ‘Crush’ con @davidarchie! 😍😍

I’m going to post vids from the concert in no particular order, many of them are in Spanish, and they are gorgeous! That Spanish album can’t get released soon enough! The Set list also featured some songs from Postcards in the Sky, and a crowd favorite, the mashup of PANDA & Thunder!

There seemed to be some issues with the sounds on a few of the vids – the bass is VERY loud and drowns out David singing – probably because the recordings were taken too close to the speakers, but most of the vids have good quality where you can clearly hear David SLAYING the songs – especially the ones in Spanish!

David sang a Peruvian folk song, La Flor de la Canela, while carrying the Peruvian flag – it’s a lovely song – hope he records it someday! There were also other Spanish favorites like Luis Fonsi’s Aqui Estoy Yo, and on David’s IG Story, he sang along, from backstage, with opener Daniel Lazo to A Puro Dolor.

Enjoy these vids!

Updated! We made a playlist of 13 great hi-def vids from the Peru concert! Thanks to the fans who shared their vids on You Tube: DVD Ch, Antuanet Mauad, Rubi Ramirez, Diana Love & David Archuleta UK.

#LightTheWorld 2017

If you missed this podcast, please take a few minutes to listen to David’s perspective on the Light The World Project this year, and his thoughts on everything from raking his neighbor’s yard, to how challenging it was to be on American Idol. A very insightful interview!

Whew! This has been a busy week! Wonder if David and Team Archie will spend some time traveling and seeing the sights in Peru! It was great to see Aaron McMurtry back on the bass! 

Things I learned from David’s trip to Peru:

  • His Spanish is flawless
  • He can BAILE with the best of them!
  • Peru fans are amazing – even after 10 years they know all the words to his songs
  • Sometimes the best laid plans don’t work out, but you go with the flow…
  • All the Peru fans own giant iPhone8+ phones lol 😀
  • Sometimes it shouldn’t be “all about the bass”

I’ll watch for more vids or Peru goodies and tweet them out as I find them – hope everyone got their concert tix and VIPS! 2018 will be here before you know it!  But before then, we have a Christmas concert in Calgary, Canada!

Speaking of Canada, Pastel will be back next week to bring you more David news! Joanie’s Minnesota recap will be posted the following week when Joanie is on MOD duty – so watch for it!

Have a great weekend and hope you’re getting a head start on the holidays!

  8. kmb says:

    Translation of the Trome interview, anyone? The part where he (I think) talks about people recognizing him in Chile is so hilarious and David got so animated!!! (“Es David Archuleta!”) Would love to know more specifics from this interview. Doesn’t have to be word for word, just a summary is more than fine! LindafromCali???

    Glad David enjoyed Peru and gave the fans there a treat!!! 🙂

  9. Miss Vicki D#2014 says:

      Thanks for this great post with all the goodies from the Peru concert. David’s Instagram posts with the orphans in Peru is so special and heartwarming. He need to be a daddy!

      • VaBeachJudy says:

        Good morning! Wonder if there will be any NEW Christmas songs covered by David? Have Christmas From The Heart playing also! The pics from the orphanage in Peru are AWESOME! The obvious caring and patience David has with those children got me all teary! The one with the boy touching David’s hair….so cute! And yes, about being a daddy

  10. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! A SUPER Sunday to all! 🙂

    Can’t get enough of David singing those Spanish songs in Peru! Especially Aqui Estoy Yo! Wouldn’t be mad if he included that on the March tour! Or in VIP! David+Spanish =EPIC ❤

  13. kimk says:

    good morning folks!!

    omgosh David and children a thousand times this!!


  14. kimk says:

    having a hard time loading the page too.. kind of think maybe it is because there is too much? lol boy are we blessed! I am so happy all worked out well 🙂

    really hope once David releases a new EP or CD all in Spanish ( think it went from a full CD to maybe an EP maybe a full CD after probs like what he did with Postcards?
    no matter know if anything I might not be able to understand it sure sounds great.. also he is venturing into ‘light’ romantic Spanish songs I think folks will love it!!) just hope we get some concerts here in the states too! haven’t gone into all from Peru yet hope to today my sister was staying with me thing about not understanding I love how he sounds so romantic just kind of hard not understanding what he is talking about? ha oh so many interviews no clue what he said. except the part about someone saying he was writing light love songs in Spanish.. good good that seems what they are into like take Luis Fonsi for example Despacito is all over.

    Justin Bieber – Despacito (Lyrics) ft. Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee [Pop]

    I realize it won’t be all that ha coochie coochie stuff but that is ok anything like Crush Spanish style will be fabs! 🙂
    oh and the Biebs is no where David is in SPANISH!!

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      The song he sang in Peru, Creo En To is AMAZING TRANSLATED. IF I knew how to bring the video here I would! It’s by Reik and it’s called Finally! The words are PERFECT ! Hmmmm,wonder if FINALLY happened to David!

  15. kimk says:

    David followed the young Spanish singer from Peru not to mention liked a lot of things on twitter.. David seems so happy and that is good!!

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

    Hello Everyone!
    Stopping by to wish y’all a Magnificent Monday!!!!!! 😀

    Love everything about David’s Trip to Peru. How wonderful to
    see him w/the kids, they sure do love him. A mutual admiration
    society <3 <3 <3 😀

    Gotta go, Take Care All, TTYL! 😀

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Waving hello! David is AMAZING with kids! Those pics were ADORABLE…the one with the boy touching his hair and him playing hopscotch! ❤. ENJOY your day my friend! 🙂

  17. Flores5 says:

    I love hearing him do interviews in Spanish!! Seems like shared a few things that he hasn’t shared in English. Like a story when he was on his mission in the city and teenagers at a party recognized him and Yelled “David Archuleta!” And they all ran to the glass of the building to see him but could get out of a locked door.
    Also something an interviewer said about someone tweeting that he was their favorite singer to work with and David said he saw that and was surprised and grateful. I️ could not understand the persons name though. Anyone know?

  18. Miss Vicki D#2014 says:

    Hey all….VaBeachJudy….sorry to hear about your car….hope it doesn’t cost too much…What is the song Finally about???? Missed that…He all did ya’ll see David’s post on facebook that he is home in Nashville and trying to rid his home of ants…..and he met his neighbor for the first time who brought him over ant killing supplies….she also sounds religious…..Wonder if she’s single…..Wonder what it would be like living right next door to the man…..hahahaha….Miss Vicki

  19. Miss Vicki D#2014 says:

    Been listening to Christmas from the Heart all day in car when I was out Christmas shopping today….Just love Melodies of Christmas…….Miss Vicki

  20. Jani says:

    I’m just loving how happy he seems right now. Seeing those little kids piled around him, on him, behind him, lol. He’s a natural with them. And hope he gets rid of his ants, lol. I’m waiting for Tofan to come up with something about those. 😉
    Thanks to all for Peru post! Haven’t had time to enjoy it much yet, but I’m sure there will be a lull after Christmas when I need a winter pick me up. We sure have been blessed with lots of goodies lately!
