David Archuleta's Grandma, 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. 🙂

A “Perfect” Valentine’s Day Coming!!

Hearts on a branch

David’s evening tweet:

David also shared his photos on Instagram! And HERE on fb!

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? 💕

    Hello Everyone!
    Thank You Joanie for a wonderful thread!
    Can’t wait for the video coming out on Wed 😀 <3

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

  2. Jani says:

    Hi all! Wish I could put Maine on MY bucket list, and go see David. Gosh, it feels like it’s been too long already, and I saw him in October. What is it about him?? Just can’t see him too many times. My hubby doesn’t get it, lol. I don’t either, to be honest. 😉 Just know that I will never not want to see him perform. He’s got a permanent place in my heart. Still get that feeling now and then that I’m somehow supposed to be his fan. Like it’s the right thing for me to do. And I’m not complaining, it’s a pretty good place to be! Goodnight all you lovely Archies. One more day til Perfect! ❤️

    Thanks for the new post Joanie! You guys are the best.

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Waving hello Jana! Know that I feel the same about wanting to see David every opportunity I can and that friends and family don’t get it! Saw David in Nashville and now going to the Richmond and Atlanta shows! Guess that makes me a “groupie”! lol

    • sydnie says:

Can’t wait till Perfect Symphony comes out tomorrow…..Happy Valentines Day everyone!!!! Miss Vicki

  16. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey Va Beach….cancelled our reservations to come to the beach this weekend…Looks like it’s gonna be not only cold but a wash out too…..so so sick of all this rain….hope we get a dry warm Spring…..gonna try to book another Va Beach weekend in March or April when it gets a little warmer……Miss Vicki

  17. sydnie says:

    Congrats to Miss Vicki, VaBeachJudy for scoring tix to the sold out Richmond show yay!

    Hi Mango Judy, I’d love to make Tuacahan! As soon as I’m done with my project I’ll try to coordinate with my tour buddies (nieces)!

    Joanie, I’m thinking of going to either woodland or Austin & maybe Tuacahn! For sure I’ll be going to one of the two Seattle shows, my niece in Seattle is familiar with both venues…the triple door show in June offers vip! 😬

    • missbianca says:

      sydnie, I hate to maybe burst your niece’s bubble, but I think the only June Triple Door show in Seattle was last year. I mean, I’d LOVE to see one here again, but um, she should check that.

      There is a show in May at Benaroya Hall with the Ensign Symphony. There are (by my current count) 5 total shows in May in Washington State. Olympia is less than 2 hours driving time from Seattle–that would be a good one!

      • sydnie says:

        Bawahaha my Seattle niece’s only off by 1 year! Good thing I haven’t had time to book flights! 😂
        Thanks so much missbianca for straightening things out lol. The Ensign Symphony one sounds great, also my SoCal niece is currently doing her internship in Olympia so that’d work too! 😬

  18. kimk says:

    good morning y’all.. lol for some reason couldn’t sleep!!

    Happy Valentine’s Day.. TO US!! 😀
