Feliz Cumpleaños Abuelita
Today we’re wishing David’s lovely abuelita aka “his most memorable fan” a very happy birthday!! Full of life and full of fun, she celebrates and supports David in many beautiful ways. David shared with us last week that she even hangs large posters of him in her home! 😀
Whether it’s “hanging posters,” “making him soup,” or just “loving him,” David’s abuelita hold a very very special place in his heart. 🙂
Happy Birthday to David’s Grandpa!!
Today is double birthday day!! Both David’s abuelita (his mom’s mom) and his Grandpa Archuleta share the same birthday! Wishing them both an awesome day celebrating as well as a wonderful year ahead! 🙂

David’s In Studio “tease.”
I’m reposting this little “tease” from David (and Nathan) because their “Perfect” Symphony cover will make it a PERFECT Valentine’s Day!! We’ll be hearing them sing some of the lines in Italian!! eep! CANNOT. WAIT. 🙂
Nathan verified that the song will indeed be a cover of Ed Sheeran (and Andrea Bocelli’s) duet “PERFECT” symphony ~and in guessing the correct Ed Sheeran song, Patty-Ann won a cd from Nathan!! Congratulations, Patty-Ann! (Congratulations also to Chelsea Knotz~ the other winner)!
And to get ready for the big release, watch Ed and Andrea singing Perfect (written for Ed’s fiancé) This is sure to be a heart melter, folks!! GAH!!! Truly a romantic song including parts sung in Italian!!❤😊🎶 Early guesses are that David will be featured singing Ed’s parts and Nathan will join in as Andrea singing in Italian! Near the end, both will harmonize in Italian! 😍
Happy 5th Anniversary “Don’t Run Away!”
Today also marks the 5th anniversary of the release of David’s song “Don’t Run Away” to iTunes. DRA was the first single to be released on David’s “No Matter How Far” cd. NMHF was a gift from David to the fans while he was away on his mission and was released in March 2013.
DRA was “leaked” late in the Fall of 2012, but officially became available for purchase in February. The song was brought to life by Kylie Malchus in her creation of an animation music video for DRA with hand drawn graphics to tell the story~This wonderful little vid now has well over 1 million views!
After David returned from his mission, he started to share DRA live adding it to his show setlist! It’s a beautiful little song that expresses a determined and heartfelt desire to help someone…to reach out and be that “somebody who cares.” Those lyrics are so much of who David is about! The first time I heard this song, it reminded me a little of an earlier favorite ~ Somebody Out There❤ We first heard it live at Roots Tech. Thank you, Nancy (muldur) for capturing it for everyone!
Another favorite emotional filled DRA performance was captured by Shelley in Rexburg. When he sings this song I believe every word he’s saying, don’t you? 💕
