The lead pic for today was, well, no contest. Β I took every ounce of willpower in me not to post it yesterday. Β I guess I like good things to last πŸ˜‰

On behalf of all fans, @samlouisG, thank you. Β Love how the edginess of the haircut is removed, focusing more on the face, than the coif.

More goodies at her ohnopurple tumblr account, so go visit.

10th year anniversary of American Idol on Billboard!

From one of our favourite writers, Fred Bronson

Today, June 11, 2012, marks the tenth anniversary of “American Idol,” and in that time the music competition TV program has racked up some jaw-dropping numbers: Many episodes have drawn over 30 million viewers; and a record-setting number of 132 million votes were cast for the most recent season finale. But the impressive numbers aren’t just restricted to viewers and votes, they also apply to the Billboard charts, where the Idols have earned an astonishing 345 No. 1s (including four new ones in the current chart just this week) across the broad array of tallies compiled every week in different musical genres. Those 345 titles have spent an aggregate 1,142 weeks in pole position.

It’s a great article and you can read all of it Β here, I’ve selected all the David Archuleta mentions to post below:

The Adult Contemporary and Adult Top 40 charts have also been dominated by Idols. Clarkson was the first to top charts in both formats, followed by Daughtry. Locke has three AC No. 1s, all with holiday songs. Underwood has also topped the AC charts, along with Elliott Yamin, David Cook, Sparks and David Archuleta, while Allen and Lambert have reigned on the Adult Top 40 charts.

American Idol No. 1s by contestant
Kelly Clarkson 73
Carrie Underwood 62
Chris Daughtry (Daughtry) 38
Fantasia 31
Ruben Studdard 16
Jennifer Hudson 15
Mandisa 15
Clay Aiken 12
Adam Lambert 9
David Cook 8
Kimberley Locke 8
Scotty McCreery 7
Josh Gracin 7
Jordin Sparks 7
Kris Allen 4
David Archuleta 4Β 

American Idols Who Have Charted on the Billboard Charts:

Season seven: (seven)
David Cook
David ArchuletaΒ 
Jason Castro
Brooke White
Carly Smithson (We Are The Fallen)
Michael Johns
Kristy Lee Cook

It’s obvious to me that Idol contestants have made a huge impact, especially when you see it all summarized this way. Β Thanks for the article Fred!

“Did a little more work to our D today. Refined facial features a bit. Touch-up here & there. New home coming soon!”

I love the way she says “Our D”. Β Awww Paula. Β Β

Soundcheck at Louisville KY – Elevator revisited

From Joni (@jonerz) on twitter yesterday: Β “Just unlocked this from my @DavidArchie vault. Heyyyyyy Babyyyyyy!! *sigh*”

Hey baby is right. Β Love the interaction with the fans, and how David goes into focus mode when he sings. Β Enjoy!

* * * * *

“I feel like God had other plans for me”

Thanks for the find Joanie. Β Associated Press interview from 2 years ago, where David mentions some of his challenges, confidence and a bigger plan. Β Really enjoyed this interview!

  2. Really a lurker says:


    ***Missionary Blog***

    Small mention of David and his music from a missionary in the Philippines (7th paragraph):

    Wonder how much David hears music or news from the outside world on members or potential members homes, tv, computers, or places of business. I guess he has little control over that.

  3. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Begin set list. Shared with a Deseret Book worker to another fan (not me.) http://twitpic.com/9vnb43
    I’m REALLY liking what I see.

  4. Lurker03 says:

    David singing BEAUTIFUL. Man…such a powerful song!

  5. angelbymyside says:

    Hello to everyone πŸ™‚

    Pastel ~ You’ve given us another marvelous post! Thanks πŸ˜€

    That is one of my all-time favorite gifs from Sam! Just gorgeous!

    LOVE Marcella’s Clock tribute video. She makes awesome videos! So talented.

    Paula’s oil painting of “our D” is exquisite!

    Have a great Tuesday πŸ˜€ ….it is raining today in my neck of the woods!

  6. Anita says:

    OH MY! That top pic of David is a killer! Is this a Bench photo?

  7. Candy says:

    GAH *DYING OVER THE BEGIN TRACK LIST* Some of by all time favs songs by U2, Cyndi, Christina, Peter Gabriel, S&G !!! WOOZA What a tracklist!!

  8. Grannycrush says:

    Janel That list is dynamite! I don’t know if I will be able to get through David singing Everybody Hurts. That song has always moved me for some reason. I thought Kari said there were two original songs on the album. He has picked some iconic songs to be on this album. This makes me even more anxious to get this album.

  9. Lurker03 says:

    Anita – yeah the Bench Fix πŸ™‚

  10. Candy says:

    And the marketing highlights…
    Extensive National Publicity
    Frequent Radio Play
    National Marketing thru Social media
    Direct marketing thru email
    Music Videos
    Merchandise Materials available


  11. meagain says:

    Wow I love the BEGIN tracklist! The songs selection is amazing!! But I really can’t wait to hear his original song Broken though. I already know I’m gonna cry on first listen πŸ™

  12. Candy says:

    Thanks Janel, what a sweetie for sharing the news with all of us!

  13. Really a Lurker says:

    Janel – A BEGIN. tracklist!!. Let us know where this came from. Some good songs.

  14. angelbymyside says:

    OMg…….THE TRACKLIST IS PERFECT!!! David is going to be covering a U2 song. That about did me in! lol

  15. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I’m keeping my fan friends name out of it and the Deseret Book worker’s name too for now. Some people might know who the fan is, but I’ll leave it up to her to tell. The DBook worker did not tell her to not share it. It almost looks like a magazine ad, but the promotion part suggests it’s probably a list for employees.

  16. ksf (a.k.a. RIP Senseless...we'll never forget) says:

    So true…these are some iconic songs! I’m most excited about hearing Pride (U2), Broken, and True Colors by Cyndi. I like that there is something for everyone on this album!

  17. Janel aka Nellie says:

    With this list, I’m just in awe of David and all he did for us. He didn’t have long to work on it, but the same is true for Forevermore and we all know how beautiful that is. An original plus 9 more songs that will never be good enough to listen to by anyone but David!

  18. Janel aka Nellie says:

    So Kari just tweeted “What is everyone up to?” We’ll see if I get repremanded for sharing the list. Let the bombardment Begin. LOL

  19. Really a Lurker says:

    Janel – Thought maybe the tracklist came from a public source, but since it may be in-house, I understand not telling. It doesn’t really matter though, the tracklist looks great!!!

  20. Candy says:

    Janel-Im sure there will be some stick in the mud that will have something negative to say, but dont worry…I’ll just taser them! Let the fun BEGIN.

  21. Janel aka Nellie says:

    LOL, thanks Candy. It was bound to get out by someone right? I just helped my friend out by having her be the one. I’m so excited to hear David sing those songs.

  22. Really a Lurker says:

    Janel – Candy’s probably right, I’ll bring my fly-swatter!! Time’s short before its release-the buzz needs to get going!!!

  23. joujou says:

    Oh my heck…..SOOOOOO excited for Beautiful and Everybody Hurts. EH is one of my all time favorite songs!!! Eeeeep! And just the other day I was looking up Beautiful on YouTube cuz I wanted my 11 year old daughter to hear it cuz I thought it might be a good song for her to sing for her voice lessons. Can. Not. Wait. To hear D’s voice on it!!!!

    Food for thought: maybe there will be another album titled END. at the end of his mission with that other D original and some other covers. I had that thought when Kari had responded to someone that their guess ‘would not be on the BEGIN. album’ or something to that effect. Just made me think maybe it’ll be on a different album.

  24. It was going to take a miracle to draw me out of lurkdom and to express my love and appreciation for David. I have always been challenged and lacked confidence in expressing myself, but the track list to “BEGIN.” is so incredible, insightful, powerful, and so awesome that I must express my appreciation to him and acknowledge that I consider him an authentic GENIUS. To take on the task of covering these monster hits also earns him the title of COURAGEOUS. If this is as earlier shared, a reflection of where his heart was and is during this period of his life then please keep on doing what your doing David. If religion and hope could always be expressed the way that David expresses it there would be greater peace and harmony in this world. This CD with its amazing collection of songs is so very needed in this world today and I think it has the potential to be a monster hit. Thank you for letting me share my thoughts and thank you for this amazing Fan Site and all the hard work that you do.

  30. joujou says:

  33. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Somewhere Only We Know by Keane… I just heard it on TV used in a movie. I loveeee the song!!! David truly can sing any songs. But in the pic Janel posted, it said Somewhere Only We Can Know…. The song I know doesn’t have CAN in the title. hmmm…

  36. Pastel, the post is so good this morning. Thank you to everyone that shared. Is the track list for sure. If so, i love all those songs. David picture at the top is gorgeous.

  37. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Ha, i’m speechless but still had to register my acknowledgment of the tracklist and the marketing (music video!?) plan for Begin. Wowza!

    Had this strong urge to quickly check fod before I switched off the light for the night…..now I know why lol.

    Goodnight friends. Can’t wait…! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  38. angelbymyside says:


    Chip and David Archuleta!!! http://ow.ly/i/GMXS #mannheimsteamroller #davidarchuleta

  39. Really a Lurker says:

    Lots of talk on @davidarchie twitter about the tracklist!! Everyone is excited! Other fansites are posting a copy of the article Janel posted so the news is spreading. Lets see what transpires the rest of the day!

  40. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Really a Lurker. Still waiting to see if I get yelled at. LOL….oh well. As far as Somewhere Only We Know I caught that too with the adding of the word “Can”. It might just be a typo mistake. I sure hope beyond hope that this list is correct, especially since I shared it from the original person who shared it.

  41. Janel aka Nellie says:

    LOL…from MyDearWriter:
    BEGIN each day with a positive thought that no matter how BROKEN your heart is, life is still BEAUTIFUL. There is always an ANGEL out there.

  42. Really a Lurker says:

    Janel – I for one appreciate you bringing the list to us, not matter what transpires. No one is 100% sure of anything like this, but it looks legit to me. Typos are always a possibility.

    Thanks again!!!

  43. Lurker03 says:

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie
    I hope you all are excited for BEGIN. coming soon. Keep posted here and at davidarchuleta.com/home/ for official track list and more! (ks)

  44. Janel aka Nellie says:

    David Archuleta‏@DavidArchie

    I hope you all are excited for BEGIN. coming soon. Keep posted here and at http://davidarchuleta.com/home/ for official track list and more! (ks)

    So, I guess soon we’ll know if the track list I posted was real or not.

  45. sarahhazel says:

    Happy 76th day!!! Fabulous post, Pastel….thank you, thank you!!!
    Eeeeekkkkk!!!! A TRACKLIST FOR BEGIN.???!!!!!
    The songs!!!! I. CAN’T. EVEN……….

    Thanks, Janel!!!

  46. Really a Lurker says:

    Thanks Lurker03 – 2 tweets in one day! Here we go!!

  47. Really a Lurker says:

    Tweet from Kari an hour ago…

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    So, what is everyone up to today? πŸ˜€

    We or she didn’t know then….

  48. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I’m thinking that tracklist tweet by Kari might be damage control. Kari’s non-answering of the fans about my twitpic is telling too. Leave it to Nellie to cause damage. Well, if it’s not the correct list, I publicly apologize.

  49. Lurker03 says:

    Janel aka Nellie – think so, too. They must be managing time for certain Archugoodies to be released like with Forevemore, BEGIN. announcement, I’ll Never Go single & MV.

  50. Really a Lurker says:

    Janel – we will see. Some other sites are posting the tracklist so Kari probably feels it should be on the official site. Probably that tweet didn’t come from David through Kari, or at least it wasn’t planned for today.

    Don’t worry, its all good.

  51. kimk says:

    lol I spazzed so much over the tracklist got myself in TWITTER JAIL!


    actually kind of shocked.. plesantly so!

    fabulous choices.. and woah the messages.
    basically love folks for who they are.
    you are beautiful.
    he is beautiful!

  52. sarahhazel says:

    So “Begin” is not a song…just an album title? I thought there’s gonna be 2 originals?
    Oh well, guess we have to wait for the official announcement from the OS.

  53. Really a Lurker says:

    Do you think the 2nd original song could be a extra or bonus track?

  54. joujou says:

    Janel lets just get the yelling outta the way:


    There! Wasn’t so bad was it? Haha!!! And even if it ends up being wrong at least it is giving us something to spazz about, dream about, and hope for, for the time being. And if it forces David’s team’s hand to post the official track list, then so be it. I for one won’t complain!

  55. joujou says:

    I’m still holding out hope for the 2nd original song to be on a 2nd mission album to be released in 2013.

    Loved mdw’s tweet. She’s so clever.

    Where is that pic from the day before D left where you could see the sheet music for one of the songs they were recording. You could tell the title was one word. I wonder if it matches up to any of these titles.

  56. Lurker03 says:

    I think for next year it will be an original album?
    Kinda like that bonus original song. Just something to tease us lol

  57. cq#DA2014 says:

    WOWZA!!!! that tracklist is to die for….please let it be right and maybe even one more song from David. Now the waiting game again….to have Kari confirm the official list.
    Hope we get that list this week, but mean while………SPAZZZZZZZZZZZING over the one we have!!!!!!!!!!!!!, lol.
    Oh by the way, thank you so much for the great post, Pastel.

  58. ray says:

    Are all the tracklist of Begin correct? I very eager to hear the Broken, which David wrote it.

  66. kimk says:

    ray really you might need to.

    ok True Colors and Beautiful and AMAZING MESSAGE SONGS!!!
    always wanted for him to cover Beautiful.. her vocals and the song is amazing!
    have folks seen the video.
    woah is all I gotta say.. as well as True Colors.

    wow just wowza!!!!!!!!!!!

    I LOVE the U2 song too!!

    lol will there be a duet!
    LOVE the REM song and the KEANE song might be my fav!

    BY the way it has lyrics with BEGIN in it and wondering if that is where he got his inspiration?!

    ha stop me..

  67. VaBeachArchie says:

    Checking in between appointments and found the fandom SPAZZING BIG TIME!! The SETLIST!!! DANG! What an undertaking by David to cover those EPIC songs in such a short time! HE IS AMAZING! THAT VOICE and those songs will be MINDBLOWING! Can’t wait to hear the confirmed list!

  68. kimk says:

    Jhen yes.. what is Broken? sounds sad?
    or maybe if Broken fix it?


    LOVE the Keane song!
    if you listen it talks about needing a place to begin!!?? πŸ˜€

  69. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I went to YT and watched every single song by the original artist and was imagining David’s take on them and how amazing to see him perform them LIVE!

  70. kimk says:

    Cyndi Lauper growing up for me was a hero of mine.
    she sang about things women were never allowed to talk about!
    love her and love True Colors!

    lol when I would sing around the house to… girls just want to have fun… hubs would get all mad.
    ha yeah girls like to have fun too.. go figure!!

  71. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–Don’t Give Up’s the one with the duet…..wow, wonder who sang that with him?….but it’s possible he just sang a solo version.

  72. Jhen says:

    Kimk- Broken is in the list , supposedly written by David, I was thinking about it a while ago why he wrote Broken?Because it kind a sad, maybe some personal things.

  73. sarahhazel says:

    Yeah, Broken sounds sad….but it probably has a positive message at the end of the song…..like Falling.

  74. kimk says:

    Christina Aguilera

    well this song is my fav for so many reasons..
    her vocals in this are off the chart.
    David has big shoes to fill.
    it is about loving folks no matter what or who they are.
    especially about loving yourself for who YOU are.
    this one shocked me the most considering..

    kudos to David. love the kid!
    and can’t wait to hear him sing he is beautiful..
    cause he is!


  75. kimk says:

    sarahhazel that sound is fabulous I love Peter Gabriel!
    but for it to work it needs to be a duet.

  76. Jhen says:

    If Begin come out , fans should do something to promote and help to push the sells of CD.

  77. kimk says:

    Jhen Broken could be sad or not I guess.. sounds quite intriguing!

  78. kimk says:

    ok Be Still My Soul I will need a medic for.. I can hardly get thru it when he sang it before.

    Angel wow just wow!!
    this is beautiful!!


    her emotion in it.. like David.

  79. Jhen says:

    Beautiful is a positive song that encourage people to believe in yourself. I like that song.

  80. Lurker03 says:

    Well… When You Believe was a duet but he pulled it off. David can pull off miracles! haha

  81. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–he will give all those songs the “Archuleta touch”…..and ya know what that means….MAGIC!!!

  82. dailylurker says:

    OMH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you soooooo much for the track list!!!!!!!!! YeS!!!!! So excited about all the covers and the original. David has great taste in music. πŸ™‚ Cannot wait to get my hands on the album, OMH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OK…breathe………calming down slowly…..

  87. kimk says:

    dailylurker lol I know really flipping out major.
    reason I say it they are not cheesy pop songs but ones with meaning and depth.
    he has a huge shoes to fill with these!
    U2 Pride is a great song.. rockish??

    was wondering yeah this is a guess if there might be a Christmas eep EP??!!!

  89. dailylurker says:

    OMH!!!!!! Yeah each song has a message in it. It is sooooooo David! Maybe there is another song on it. Maybe a bonus that hasn’t been mentioned yet? Gotta go take my doggie to the vet now. He has a big rash on his belly. πŸ™ Probably a bug bite that got infected or something.

  90. sarahhazel says:

    Hmmm….the possible track list got me thinking…..is this album giving us a hint? Is it telling us that David will do inspirational songs with soulful pop/rock kinda or current-sounding vibe from now on?

  91. bychance says:

    luker-no-more…….I love your thoughts and couldn’t agree more. His faith and courage were what put me over the edge into “fandom.” I recently came out of lurkdom,too, and feel many of the same feelings you expressed. Thanks for sharing!!

  92. kimk says:

    sarahhazel I think he said he wanted to do a cd to reflect what he was doing for the next two years? inspirational makes sense.
    hmm who knows what he will do when he comes back.. lol I am hoping for a Spanish CD!???

  93. sarahhazel says:

    Website of the record company. David’s not listed (yet) as their artist.

  94. joujou says:

    Kimk I was picturing D hugging through a whole mv like that too. Haha.

  95. joujou says:

    Heck I’d even volunteer to duet with him just so I could get the worlds longest hug from him!!! Haha!

  96. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–That does makes sense. I hope he doesn’t shy away from mainstream. Still wishing for a hit song and radio play of his future songs.

  97. sarahhazel says:

    On the other hand….sticking with inspirational might finally get him a Grammy. πŸ™‚

  98. joujou says:

    Nobody has even mentioned the pic that was with the track list. I don’t think I’ve seen it before. Is it new?

  99. Grace says:

    I agree!! These deep meaningful songs are more like David. He is young but what’s in his mind is always universal, inspirational and inclusive. Unfortunately, current pop on the radio is always cheesy sometimes shallow (Beav, Boyfriend? eww.) love songs and hope David can change that trend. I know I am dreaming but dream big!!

  100. sarahhazel says:

    joujou–looks new to me….maybe he did a photoshoot before leaving?…..Kate Moore said she is looking over pics for the cover.

  101. kimk says:

    joujou lol!!!

    new pic!!!!???

  102. kimk says:

    oh that is a nice pic!!

    think he had TWO photoshoots before he left!!!?

  103. Grace says:

    According to the marketing highlights in the pic Janel posted, it says music videos shot before David leaving on a mission. So there are music videos?? hmm..
    joujou, it’s new. Under the pic, it says ‘cover xxx final’, but can’t read them all. Not sure if it’s the final cover though.

  104. sarahhazel says:

    Grace–we’ll never know until we get details from the OS…..dang, the waiting is just torture!

  105. joujou says:

    Grace pretty sure it says cover not final. I was thinking it must be a new pic but with all the spazzing over the track list I think we forgot to spazz over the new pic. Haha!!! Just goes to show we are fans of the music and voice first and his good looks are just a (very nice) bonus. πŸ™‚

  106. kimk says:

    Grace think it says ‘cover not final’

  107. Grace says:

    sarahhazel, the album will be out in August and I think the tracklist was leaked a bit early. lol. But it’s all good for us. Hope we can refocus on his current songs on Forevermore since two more videos/songs will be out from the album. BTW, I just ordered more Forevermore at wowhd.us and the album is at #2. Still going!!

    Let’s vote for David. Finally broke past 47%.

  108. PaulaFOD says:

    Jenleighbarry is graciously donating one of her amazing calendars to The Singer and the Song Project. One person will be chosen at random to receive their choice of one of her XL calendars! Thank you Jen for your generosity!

  109. Grace says:

    Oh, cover not final. Got it. Thanks.

  110. joujou says:

    Is it Aug 7th yet? Haha!!! Gotta love the date for that. It will mark 3 years to the day since I last felt my angel baby move, I’m pretty sure she died that day but I didn’t know it and i didn’t deliver her for more 5 days. CFTH came out right around her due date. It’s like he KNOWS exactly when I need his music in my life.

  111. angelbymyside says:

    Wasn’t there an orchestra accompanying David for the album??? Not sure for all songs but all this is just too good to be true! *EPIC*

  112. sarahhazel says:

    joujou– πŸ™ ((((hugs))))

  113. sarahhazel says:

    abms–Yes..there was! Can’t wait to hear them all but I hope there won’t be leaks on YT or other places.

  114. joujou says:

    Thx sarahhazel. it just gives me something to look forward to for that day. Can’t wait!!!!

  115. joujou says:

    Also by the time begin comes out he will have been out for over 4 months….. 1/6th of the way!!!!

  116. kimk says:

    joujou pretty sure we had a discussion about this before but as for David and my attraction to him in that manner was when he sang Angels on Idol. odd really.. funny I have a huge collection of angels like Sunny does.

  117. kimk says:

    angel yes!!! hmm Be Still My Soul!!!?

  118. Meganloves2lol says:

    is this thw full tracklist or is there more? ahhhh!!! be still my soul i my favorite hymn!!

  119. Fiona says:

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEK!!!!! This is so exciting!!!!!! That’s all I can say right now!

  120. angelbymyside says:

    Kimk ~ You and Sunny are not the only ones who have a collection of angels….so do I. I’ve collected them for years…long before I ever knew about David! lol

  121. angelbymyside says:



    Here is what the album cover for BEGIN. looks like. http://lockerz.com/s/216590860

  122. Really a Lurker says:

    Nice pic for the album cover..

  123. joujou says:

    K the album cover that was just tweeted……he is always handsome, but why does he always pick pics that don’t exactly look like him. I liked the one on the track list pic better. Oh wells.

  124. Really a Lurker says:

    He looks older and his eyes…….

  125. kimk says:



    THE EYES!!!!

    holy carp!

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie
    Here is what the album cover for BEGIN. looks like.

  126. joujou says:

    It’s hard to tell on my phone but his eyes look bluish and something about him reminds me of Adam Lambert in that pic. Haha. Don’t know what though. Don’t get me wrong I like the pic just liked the smiley one better. πŸ™‚ please don’t throw tomatoes at me.

  127. kimk says:

    lol joujou it is gorgeous.. ha I think it does look like him. he has killed me with those eyes before!

  128. joujou says:

    And my phone won’t let me zoom in. I need to be able to zoom in so I can study it up close and personal. Haha.

  129. sarahhazel says:

    joujou–I think it looks exactly like him….the more mature David. I guess I really love serious David pics, esp. for album covers.
    Wow, the eyes….what can I say…..gah! wanna see the actual thing!!!

  130. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–OMG….we needed a bigger WARNING sign for that LOL!!!

  131. sarahhazel says:

    And you can ZOOM it too! WOWZA! **dead**

  132. kimk says:

    lol darn near choked on my cheezits with that one!

    I LOVE KATIE MOORE!!!!!!!!!!

  133. sarahhazel says:

    I knew they should’ve casted him in the Twilight series….haha!

  134. sarahhazel says:

    Hmmm….what happened to the DA logo design?…I love that one better.

  135. collegemom says:

    I want to see the real picture to see how his eyes look I’m looking for he “soul” that we usually see through his eyes.

  136. Fiona says:

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!! THAT COVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    wow!!!! What a day!!!!!!!!!!!!

  137. Really a Lurker says:

    joujou – I don’t thinks it looks exactly like him either, JMO; neither did the first album and CFTH album: those two come to mind. He’s a handsome guy though, don’t get me wrong (maybe I’m just used to the younger, smiling David). He may look like this when he comes back.

    p.s.: ((hugs)) from me too.

  138. By chance says:

    Joujou, have to say I agree with you. Was hoping for something like the squatted pose with light on his hands. But, …….can I live with one? You betcha!!!!!!!

  139. joujou says:

    Yay for a zoomable pic!!!! His eyes are amazing!!! I don’t think we will ever have them completely figured out. And yes I thought he should’ve been in Twilight back when I read the books. But now I hate the series so I’m glad he’s not associated with it. Haha! πŸ™‚
    And I agree it is a more mature pic of him. Starting to think it was a very good choice for the cover so he can break away from being thought of as a teenager all the time.

  140. Reine says:

    I think he looks mature and really handsome.Gorgeous eyes!!!

  141. joujou says:

    Really a lurker (thx) and bychance, glad I’m not the only one who thought that. πŸ™‚

  142. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Interesting the mixed feelings on beautiful. I love that song. If you think how David is against bullying and this song conveys a message of acceptance, to not tear people down, not bully.

  143. angelbymyside says:


  144. kimk says:

    Janel that is the thing about Beautiful. it is a bit controversial or at least the way I see it. so glad he has chosen to sing it.. speaks volumes to me.
    yes about the bullying.. not to mention loving yourself even though you are different then what others wish you to be? or perhaps society wishes you to be?
    can’t wait to hear him sing this!

  145. kimk says:

    angel lol has my vote!! finally something that looks like him only better! dang those eyes, that hair and lol that chin!


  146. angelbymyside says:

    joujou ~ David is definitely NOT looking like a teen in the album cover pic…much more mature. I think they chose a great pic.

  147. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi all. Pastel love your post and pics. Gee whiz! Holy Moley! What a day. I was missing Janel’s comments. Said to myself, hope she’s okay. Today, boy are you okay. You’re terrific. That was the best BEGIN gate leak. Whoo Hoo. Thanks Mrs. Nellie. Those songs were amazing by the original artists. Imagine David singing them. Oh my Elder Archuleta. hat a dear young man David is. His choice of songs to sing for us is astonishing and oh, surprisinly amazing. I am in total awe of David James Archuleta. Never a dull moment being a FOD. Our ODD is everlasting. Love you David.

  148. fan says:

    So, driving around today I heard Angel and thought to myself , David would sound so good singing this song, I wonder if there would be a chance it will be on Begin. Then I come here and It Is!!!! WOW moment.

  149. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    *what* not hat. Excuse me, I’m more excited than usual. What other musician would do what David has done for his fans? None! The man is a dynamo. πŸ˜†

  150. Really a Lurker says:

    Didn’t someone post before that he has nice lips? Just an observation, you understand. This pic really brings out that quality, just sayin’. (Sorry if I overstepped).

  151. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Oh, I’m good Judie just busy getting ready to take 27 of my Girl Scouts to a 3 day 2 night Camporee. 650 butterfly swaps I’ve been creating along with phone calls out the ying-yang, planning, planning, planning. Crossing my T’s and dotting my I’s. There will be 1100 girls up there and 3-400 adults. This Friday will be our last day to get together and do more tent practice, handing out paper work, etc. Was just taking a little break and saw the gem of the list, had to leak…I mean share. LOL

  152. angelbymyside says:

    Really a Lurker ~ YEP…gorgeous lips, eyes, chin…. beautiful inside and out!

  153. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Janel.. Busy, busy. The girls are fortunate to have you. Glad you are okay. You need a longer day. You deserve some kind of award from the scouts like Mother Scout of the Year. Your sharing has made our day. Thanks again.

  154. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Really a Lurker & angelbymyside πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜† πŸ™„ πŸ˜‰

  155. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I don’t spend all my time doing one thing or I’d go nuts. Even when I’m on the computer on my FB groups, I’m multi-tasking with Girl Scout stuff or genealogy research, or singing.

  156. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Alert David Archuleta fans: There is a shortage of smelling salts. Try not to hyperventilate. Breathe !! πŸ˜†

  157. Bobanna says:

    Jumping in to say a quick Hello to my FOD family, and SQUEEEEEEEEEE along with the rest of you!! That album cover….OMG!!! The supposed track list…WOW!!! What a glorious day this turned out to be. Carry on everyone and have a good day! πŸ™‚

  158. Candy says:

    HOLY CRAP!!! That album cover…best cover yet!!! Beyond gorgeous, beyond reflective, beyond sexy, my new desktop and screen saver!! If that doesnt get the publics attention…nothing ever will.

    RAY-Get the coats ready!!! Better order some extra! I do think we are about to flatline!!!

  159. sarahhazel says:

    Looks like the pic hasn’t been re-touched or photoshopped. You can clearly see some scruffy thing going on there….Are his eyes really that light-colored? Depends on the lighting I guess…..And looks like no make-up either…..W.O.W.

  160. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–LOL….been waiting for your comment on the cover! πŸ˜‰

  161. blue says:

    i really like the album cover. but i do wish they had kept the name logo thing. it was cool. it’s a nice picture though. simple. i wonder what katie worked on for hours? maybe putting the background in or something?

  162. sarahhazel says:

    Bobanna–Yes, major squeeeeiiinggg (and hyperventilating0 going on today!….Triple whammy–track list, tweets….and now this most stunning pic! WHAT A DAY!!!

  163. sarahhazel says:

    blue–I miss the name logo too….oh well……I’m guessing this is not yet the final product….Might have a background or more finishing touches coming.
    Gorgeous though. πŸ™‚

  164. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Candy.. Are you done with jury duty?

  165. Candy says:

    I hope the cd cover comes with a crash cart, smelling salts, a paperbag and an Urn!!

  166. Candy says:

    SGJ-Yes, my group was released, didnt get to serve, just sat around staring at the walls. Thankfully the court building had a coke machine!

  167. angelbymyside says:

    Sarahhazel ~ Scruffy thing…….oh yeah! Me likey! lol

  168. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Candy.. Released huh! HaHaHa That’s how I felt after serving 4 days. I felt like I was on trial. Just think, you won’t have to serve for another year. Fun times.

  169. sarahhazel says:

    abms–scruffy and..smexy?(wooopsie!….haha)…hope they keep it that way…..because AU NATURALE David is the best!

  170. Candy says:

    Gesssh- I just chumped so hard on my gum I took a big chunk out of the inside of my cheek *Danged CD Cover*

  171. sarahhazel says:

    I love his jawline….and the chin dimple…..and the hair…..PERFECTION.

  172. sarahhazel says:


    And I need get dinner done lol. BBL

  173. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Candy Take it easy. We have the “I’ll Never Go” MV to come out yet. Pace yourself. David’s WOW factor can be lethal. πŸ˜†

  174. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Has anyone heard from kimk. Hope she didn’t pass out. πŸ˜†

  175. kimk says:

    so did Katie Moore airbrush anything.. like that five o’clock shadow, that chin, those eyes.. that hair.. all looks too good to be true!
    LOVE the coloring.. emerald green!
    reminds me the the flower shop Crush video!

  176. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kimk.. HaHaHa There you are. Was afraid you conked out from handsome overload.

  177. Candy says:

    Be back later, gotta get dinner out of the oven and on the table.

  178. kimk says:

    ATX ~ LOL πŸ˜†

  190. Just got home from work, and OMJOSH. I am speechless, I need oxygen. Somebody HELP me PLEASEEEEEE!!!!!. The Cover for BEGIN. Lets begin.

  191. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello Everyone!


    THE COVER IS PERFECT FOR THIS ALBUM, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT. David looks fab, the look he’s giving suits the album perfectly, looks natural, he looks his age there, like the wonderful, handsome, 21 year old man he is πŸ˜€

    The possible track list is SPECTACULAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just to let you all know, I’ve made reservations for all of you at the Archuhospital David Fan Wing. Hmmm, wing, speaking of the fine feathered fearsome fivesome, they are all(with the exception of Mrsjg, supergrand is making dinner right now,lol) pressing the plaid “outfits” for everyone to wear while “guests” at the Archuhospital. And, for a limited time, all “guests” will receive a complimentary pair of coordinating moonboots πŸ˜€ Needless to say, NO chicken will be served in the ArchuCafeteria, but plenty of Pad Thai πŸ˜€ Also, there will be Archie comics, Chords of Strength books & photo albums of David pics available in the visitors lounge πŸ˜€

  192. Charlotte says:

    Hey all,
    What a day, huh? Was not expecting all the amazing goodies this week. First the I’ll Never Go teaser yesterday(can’t wait for the full vid) and now the BEGIN. cover art and track list. Yowza!!!
    Had to look at the cover for a little while, but it’s grown on me. I agree on au naturale being the best look for David. No make up or airbrushing allowed. He is way too beautiful to need it.
    And the track list… :dies: I’m going to need a tranquilizer before listening to this album. Can’t wait to hear his take on these songs and to hear the original track. It looks like a David signature piece so I’m sure it’ll be amazing.

  193. MunkFOD says:

    HI FOD! I guess I am behind the times but BEGIN. has a period after it! cool! love the track list… love the cover art! Excited for the new single coming out! holy cow! David must have never slept! Thanks David! Thanks Kari! and thank you FOD for all the terrific posts you bring us each day! I am always here but have been lurking lots lately! Don’t have very many clever things to say.. but wanted to say HI! πŸ˜€

  194. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey ATX, are you ok?????????? πŸ˜€

    Linda, Hang in there girl πŸ˜€ Dont forget about the video for I’ll Never Go, odds are more pics for Begin., videos etc…………… 😯 πŸ˜†

  195. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello Munk!

    Hello Charlotte!

  196. Jenny says:

    I’m really excited to hear Angel. It was one of my favorite songs during high school. I just listened to it again for the first time in a long time and fell in love with it again! I can’t wait to hear David sing it. That is if that tracklist is real.

  197. Grace says:

    Hello everyone,
    Don’t throw tomatoes on me. Not liking uneven shadows on his face and twilight eye colors. Never satisfied with covers throughout 5 albums, so what can I say. Have u seen this?

    Hanne β™₯ ツ ‏@HanneDenmark

    ENLARGED @DavidArchie’s album cover for BEGIN. So different and looking his age β™₯<— View FULL SIZE http://twitpic.com/9vrey5/full

  198. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Jenny, Cant wait to hear Angel & the rest of the songs πŸ˜€

    Grace, thats ok, no tomatoes from me, how about Cantelopes? πŸ˜† , jk. I dont know what to tell ya, I love the cover πŸ˜€

  199. Charlotte says:

    Hi Beth :waves: Hi to our feathered friends, too πŸ™‚

    Grace, are you trying to kill us with that? :thud: :dead: That is so my next laptop screen saver. It’ll be a desktop screen saver, too, once my mom and I each have our own desktops in another month or so. Loving the though of us each having our own more and more πŸ™‚

    ksf, if you’re on today, thank you for the site for Javid. Have it bookmarked so I can read anytime πŸ™‚

  200. kimk says:


    I LOVE this tracklist.. really hope all the songs will be on BEGIN!

  201. sarahhazel says:

    ray–defibs too???! bwahahahahaha!
    ATX–hang in there, OK….ray’s got the emergency stuff for us!

  202. MunkFOD says:

    HI Beth! πŸ˜€

  203. GGDoorsfan says:

    Yo Fod! Um, anything new? πŸ™‚

  204. kimk says:

    Jenny hoping it is the tracklist.. was not familiar with the Angel so looked it up.
    LOVE it and love how Sarah sings it here.


  205. sarahhazel says:

    Grace–LOL…no tomatoes……that pic by Hanne looks like it’s been enhanced to look different….the one from that kimk posted at 3:10 pm is more natural looking….but I think we have yet to see the final product. I think it’s gorgeous.

  206. sarahhazel says:

    GG–you’re not in a squeeeiiiinggg mode yet???

  207. If i remember right from his interview Kurt Kestner said that the covers were great and that we would love the choices. YOU WERE RIGHT SIR, If they are confirmed from Kari then i will be happier,

  208. Grace says:

    Beth, lol. If fact, I haven’t seen good cover pictures from any artists. I think Bench photographers are excellent. Maybe their pictures were photoshopped?

  209. Jenny says:

    Kimk, Angel was a song that I listened to a lot during a rather rocky time in my life. If David sings it… I don’t know how I’m gonna take it lol.

  210. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Charlotte, They’re waving right back at you, only thing is, they went airborne from waving πŸ™„ , lol.

    Munk πŸ˜€

    Hey GG! or is it Georgette Gardenia or Ginger Gizella or Gina Geraldine or Godiva Grace or Gwyneth Gwyn or Gilda Garnett or Giovanna Gwendolyn or Gillian Galina or Gladys Gabriella or Gee Gee or Gigi or hmmm, thats all I got for now πŸ™„

  211. GGDoorsfan says:

    HAHAHAH – Nope, not squeeing till I hear some tunes πŸ™‚

    I love your persistence Beth, lolol πŸ™‚

  212. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Grace, lol, I love the cover, especially given what Davids doing right now, the mission, plus if the tracklist is correct, I think it works for that too. I do have to say that I love the pic of David in a suit coat & jeans quatting, looking down with the sunlight shining down, thought that pic would be a fantastic cover, wish that one was used, but I love this one too πŸ˜€

  213. sarahhazel says:

    GG–Wow, how do you do it???….I’m already dying here……

  214. sarahhazel says:

    David is a simple person….maybe that’s why he wanted a simple cover?

  215. kimk says:

    Jenny if he sings anything like Sarah there I know I will. love the Keane song and LOVE Xtina’s Beautiful. come to think about it I really looking forward to them all!

  216. GGDoorsfan says:

    Practice Sarahhazel, Practice, lololol… I’m eager to hear some ‘new’ David songs

  217. kimk says:

    GG!! lol nuttin honey.. what’s shakin?!!
    forget the gorgeous cover.. what do you think of David’s song choices?

  218. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    GG πŸ˜† I think there will be construction on a new wing of the Archuhospital, the WantToKnowWhatGGstandsFor Wing πŸ˜† I think there’ll be a long waiting list though πŸ˜€ I’ll keep trying πŸ™„

  219. Jenny says:

    I’m looking forward to the Keane and Xtina songs too! This album is gonna be a killer!

  220. DFT says:

    Howdy everyone! (((hugs to all)))
    Wow, what a wonderful day of David news! πŸ˜€
    Thank you David and Kari for everything!

  221. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–I wanna make a reservation for the Archuhospital or hotel?….sounds like the perfect place for a crazed one like me….love the amenities and services…haha!

  222. kimk says:

    wonder how he will handle the U2 song..


    Pride In The Name of Love


  223. kimk says:


    like John Legend has done it.

    both are wonderful..
    could be something totally different!

  224. kimk says:

    DFT!! hi!! don’t you just love this all.. we are so lucky!! lol spoiled!!

  225. CindyUT says:

    Hello everyone! Just finished reading through all the comments. All I can say is W.O.W!!!!!!!!

    My first glance at the album cover nearly flat lined me! Is David gorgeous in that picture or what?????

    The leaked tracked list…..oh my…..how are we every going to survive listening to this album….my heart melts just thinking of it!

    Beth, I would also like to make reservations for the Archuhospital. I’m still feeling very faint after looking at the album cover!

    Somewhere We Only Know

    I walked across an empty land
    I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
    I felt the earth beneath my feet
    Sat by the river and it made me complete

    Oh simple thing where have you gone
    I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
    So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
    I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

    I came across a fallen tree
    I felt the branches of it looking at me
    Is this the place we used to love?
    Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

    Oh simple thing where have you gone
    I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
    So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
    I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

    And if you have a minute why don’t we go
    Talk about it somewhere only we know?
    This could be the end of everything
    So why don’t we go
    Somewhere only we know?

  231. kimk says:

    DFT doing great.. ha even better now!
    hope all is doing well with you.
    can’t wait to see you again.. at a reunion concert!!!!

  232. CindyUT says:

    Hi DFT!!!!

  233. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey DFT! Long time, no talk πŸ˜€ One of the sweetest guys ever in the history of the planet, you are πŸ˜€ Hope everything is going well!

    sarahhazel πŸ˜† Sounds like you would be a sucker, er um, I mean a sinch, well ummm, no, ummm a possible customer for purchasing the ArchuNecessityPack, a must-have for all “guests” at the DavidFanWing. It has an Ipod, an Itunes gift card, a barnes & Noble gift card(future David books), A How to Pad Thai Cook Book, Years supply of bottled water(well, 1 bottle, gift card for the rest, otherwise it would be really, really heavy πŸ™„ ), 3 scarves(that miracleously coordinate with the required plaid “outfits” ), hair products, 1 hoodie & NA dvd(soon as its available) all for the low, kinda low, well reasonable price of $399.95 πŸ˜€ All rooms come with a goldfish(yours to name as you see fit, as long as its named after some kind of hair product) & a crockpot filled with David’s Abelita’s Fish soup(crackers included) πŸ˜€

  234. DFT says:

    Hello Pickles!
    aww, awesome, Kimk! Glad all is well with you! I am doing pretty good. I have just been busy and also working on my 2 year plans. I can’t wait to see you at the Reunion TOUR! It is going to be fantastic to see everyone again! πŸ™‚
    awww, Thanks Beth! Hope that you are doing well! How are the F, L, B, and F Brothers doing? They will have to start getting ready for the next tour. Wonder what kind of clothing will be in fashion then (in 2 years).

  235. kimk says:


    love this cover

    love it even better this way!


  236. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey Cindy! I have your name on the waiting list πŸ˜€

  237. Dan says:

    Interesting track list… Beautiful was an different choice… mixed feelings regarding that one…

  238. sarahhazel says:

    DFT–So glad you dropped by!!! Ain’t it a fantastic day in Archuland?!!! πŸ™‚

  239. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    DFT! You sound busy πŸ˜€ I’m doing ok, thanks. The fine feathered fearsome fivesome(Mr Sgj is an honorary member πŸ˜€ ) are doing fine, except you have them wondering now about the fashion possibilities two years from now. Now they’re going on their computers seeing what info they can find. Thanks alot DFT, now thats all I’ll hear about from them for the next two years πŸ™„ πŸ˜€

  240. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–am I on the waiting list too? what number?

  241. Charlotte says:

    Beth, love your ArchuNecessityPack. Unfortunately for me, I’m completely broke, so 399.95 is way out of my budget. Got anything for the fan with no money? LoL

  242. DFT says:

    Hello Dan!
    Thanks Sarahhazel! It sure is a great day in the ArchuUniverse! πŸ˜‰ How have you been?
    hahaha Beth! That can be part of their 2 year plan. πŸ™‚ Awww, Mr SGJ is a new honorary member. πŸ˜€

  243. kmb says:

    OHMYHECK!!!!! The possible tracklist is KILLER. I have Sarah’s version of Angel since I fell in love with the song the first time I heard it, but I wonder if I will end up liking David’s better. Who knows. Kurt did say BEGIN. would have songs that we “knew and loved” and it sounds like that’s true if this tracklist is correct. WOW!!! No tomatoes from me Janel. Even if it’s slightly off, it got buzz going and gave us something to spazz over, so in my mind it’s all good.

    I remember Kari did say there were 2 originals but it’s possible that the other is being saved for 2013. Right at this moment, I don’t miss David because I know how much he thinks of us and how much we must mean to him. I think Heavenly Father gave David extra energy so he could do all this, so that he could go serve Him and yet still be serving us. In other words, Heavenly Father is watching over us too, not just David. When you follow the Lord, all other things are added to you and you are able to do what needs to be done. David is one AMAZING person!

  244. sarahhazel says:

    DFT–Doing fine, thank you. Nice to know you’re working on your 2-year plans….good luck and may the time pass by quickly for all of us in this longest Archudrought! πŸ™‚

  245. nora says:

    great album cover, he looks like a young man and not a young boy , he is so handsome anf those eyes to die for, can’t believe all that we have to look foward to, a MV fro CD forevermore an now this Is Aug 7 here yet great song choices, where did he find the time to do so much in such a short time, we are lucky fans, that’s for sure, Can’t wait for BEGIN

  246. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Charlotte, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd are starting a finance company & say they will be able to work out a deal for you on the ArchuNecessityPack πŸ˜€ Just have two forms of ID, your birth certificate & letters from 3 people explaining why the FeatherFandom Financial Corp should “loan” you the money for your ArchuNecessityPack πŸ˜†

    sarahhazel, your number 3,491 πŸ˜† (another floor is being added to the David Fan Wing as we speak πŸ˜€ )

    DFT, yes he is & gosh darn proud of it, I’m sure πŸ˜€

  247. sarahhazel says:

    kmb–It’s so amazing how David was able to do this mega-load of work before leaving in such a short period…He is truly blessed by Him….and so are we…..He did it all these for us, his fans…***sniff***

  248. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–what??? #3,491???….but I need it now!….hmmm, how much will it cost to get me to the top of the list?…..hehehe…..

  249. DFT says:

    Hello KMB and Nora!
    Thanks Sarahhazel! I hope it passes by quickly for all of us also. It hasn’t been that bad with all the goodies David left for us and with Kari updating us. Sending postcards has helped also.
    I am sure he is super excited, Beth. πŸ˜€

    FODCHAT Time. I will try to come back soon. Love you all! Come and join us in chat when you can. Just click the CHAT tab on the top and then click box 1 or Box 2 on Mondays after Box 1. Or LNC box on Friday and Saturday Late Night Chat times.

  250. sarahhazel says:

    Bye & see ya soon, DFT!!!

  251. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel, I am SHOCKED πŸ˜€ that you would have the nerve to imply that members of the FeatherFandom Financial Corp would be open to bribery 😯
    I just cant believe it, they cant believe it, everyone here at FOD cant believe it, but Henny the Bookkeeper, lucky for you, is ok with it πŸ™„ πŸ˜† Just start with $10.00 at least πŸ˜€ She’s not cheep after all πŸ™„

  252. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I really wonder how many sells of this album we can get for David. What a gift it would be for us to give him while he’s gone to sell this album like mad. NO ILLEGAL DOWNLOADS!!!!

  253. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    DFT Have fun at Chat(I would come, but it moves so fast, it makes me dizzy πŸ˜† )

    Hey Nora! I agree, he looks 21, he looks great!

    kmb, David is too good to us πŸ˜€

  254. Charlotte says:

    Beth, thank The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd and Floyd for me and tell them I’ll keep it in mind if I can figure out a way to pay them back afterword. I’ll work something out πŸ™‚

  255. DFT says:

    See you soon, Sarahhazel, Beth, Kimk, Nora, KMB, Charlotte, Dan, Pickles, CindyUT, and all my David fanmilia! πŸ™‚

  256. A Fan says:

    Love…Love..Love the cover for “Begin” logo is awesome. I also love the photo by Matt Clayton of David bending down with Jeans/Jacket but this one is purdy too. He looks amazing and like the 21 yr old he is. Mature and hunky. lol.

  257. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–Thanks….and yes, I’m shameless and desperate! $50.00 for Henny….haha!

  258. Charlotte says:

    Nora, ITA completely. He is definitely looking more grown up in the cover art. Not so little anymore πŸ™‚

  259. DFT says:

    haha Beth. Henny The Bookkeeper. Chat can be a little fast at times lol.
    Hello Nellie. that would be awesome

  260. Elysian says:

    HOLY SMOKES!!!! The wealth of goodies today is mind boggling!!!!! The GORGEOUS picture of David at the top of the post literally took my breath away, followed by the leaked tracklist (thanks Janel!!) of songs so epic I can’t believe they will all be on the same CD, which had me reeling, and finally the CD cover, which delivered the knockout punch. I just regained consciousness. Beth, order me a ArchuNecessityPack, STAT!! LOL!

  261. Janel aka Nellie says:

    @kariontour @davidarchie I pledge the legal purchase of 10 copies of Begin (maybe not all at once)

  262. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Charlotte, Well, I just found out that Henny the bookkeeper is open to bribery & doesnt hide it, so $10.00 would be a good start πŸ˜€

    DFT πŸ˜€

  263. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Oh darn, I missed DFT.. I was so busy reading all the comments and listening to the music. Anyways, hello and see ya DFT. What an amazing day. Beth.. You are a riot. Mr.SGJ, got 3 pairs of plaid shorts. He hopes Freud, Lloyd and Boyd will approve. We will need 2 rooms at the Archuhospital. The new wing will be fine. Oh Mr. SGJ wants to know if their is TV and WIFI? He’s so fussy!! πŸ˜†

  264. Elysian says:

    Lurker-no-more- Thanks for de-lurking! I loved your thoughts and you expressed them beautifully!!. I too have only come out of lurkdom to post on a regular basis relatively recently. You should post more often, the water if fine!! πŸ™‚

  265. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel, lol.

    Elysian, Got your name on the list πŸ˜€

  266. Elysian says:

    Beth- Whoohooo! Thanks!

  267. Elysian says:

    Well, I hate to run, but I have to make din-din for the family. I hope to BBL!

  268. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey supergrand πŸ˜€ 3 pair of plaid shorts, the guys are so proud of him they’re actually getting teary eyed πŸ™„ Yes there is tv, wifi & dvr πŸ˜€ I mean, really, what kind of place do you think we’re running here anyway. Gotta have something to watch the NA DVD on, for gosh sakes πŸ™„ πŸ˜†

  269. Charlotte says:

    Beth, I’ll keep that in mind, too. Thank Henny for me πŸ™‚

  270. Amanda Jane says:

    The Begin tracklist is unbelievable! Can’t wait! I hope I can not spoil myself and listen to them all in order… and no snippets!

    I think someone will have to hold me back from running, not walking to Bridge Over Troubled Water right off the bat. πŸ™‚

  271. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Elysian, Have a nice dinner, dont forget to bring us the leftovers πŸ˜€

  272. Now i am so anxious for ING video and the BEGIN. album in Aug. Is it Aug 7th yet? Are you guys as excited as i am? SILLY QUESTION HUH!!!! I still hope that before they release the BEGIN. album we get a direct tweet from David, via/Kari. We need to hear, HI! ITS DAVID HERE. This would make my day.

  273. DFT says:

    Hello SuperGrandJudie! πŸ™‚ I am in lurkmode still lol. How are you doing? awwww, Mr SGJ has his Plaid Collection.
    Hello Elysian!

  274. Has Kari confirmed the tract list yet?. I love those songs. I was a 30ish women back in those day.

  275. Hi! DFT, are you still doing chat?

  276. kimk says:

    Linda lol. not yet. hope these are the songs!!

  277. I haven’t been able to get it the last 2 weeks.

  278. Bobanna says:

    Hi Sarahazel! ITA…hyperventilating indeed. We are getting good at it too. David seems to enjoy seeing fan pandemonium. lol Hi DFT!! See you in chat!

  279. DFT says:

    Hello Amanda Jane!
    Hi Linda! Yes, Chat is open right now (Box 1). Come and join us if you can. πŸ™‚ I don’t think Kari has confirmed the song track list yet.

  280. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Charlotte, Henny says “You’re Welcome” πŸ˜€

    Amanda Jane, I think we’re all in trouble with this CD πŸ˜€

  281. I know Kimk, but surely she has seen the tract list on tweeted and comments. She has not aknowledge if they are right or wrong.

  282. DFT says:

    Hello Bobanna! See ya in chat! πŸ˜€
    hmmm, Linda. Why won’t it let you in? It should be working. Off to check.

  283. nora says:

    I hope there is room for me in the Archuhospital, on second thought after all that happened today, I think i might need to be on life support, especially after looking at that CD picture for BEGIN. Any emergency kits for that?

  284. DFT will be there in a little bit.

  285. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali. Yes DFT is still doing the chat. We must go there one of these nights.

    Beth. How silly of me to ask. He can’t wait to see NA again. He used to watch it with me every morning. It will be so much fun being with the other FODs. The rooms are padded I hope because it will take some time for everyone to stop sgueeing and spazzing over this day alone. πŸ˜†

  286. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey nora! Yes, all rooms are fully equiped to help each “guest” continue to be a fully functioning fan, able to vote on polls, watch every you tube vid, able to stand in line for 10 hours or more(made possible by the coordinating moonboots, comfy as all get out πŸ˜€ ) when needed & can order VIP tickets, make family breakfast, pack the kids lunches & walk the treadmill, all at the same time πŸ˜€

  287. CindyUT says:

    Beth, will there be Nandito Ako marathons at the Archuhospital, too?

  288. DFT says:

    haha Nora.
    See ya in a few, Linda! πŸ™‚
    awww, yes, SuperGrandJudie, come anytime you can! πŸ™‚
    I may have to try to watch Nandito Ako in plaid pants haha
    haha Beth

  289. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    DFT Thanks, I will πŸ˜€

  290. josie says:

    So I leave for a few days and come back to this. I have to be honest, I don’t even care about the tracklist right now~ I’m so darn focused on that album cover. Holyyyyyy….weinerschnitzels. And ay carumba! (Is that a swear word? lol)

  291. Anita says:

    Hmmmm….I’m not loving David’s album cover for BEGIN. He doesn’t really look like himself. I’m a tad disappointed. I know I’m in the minority on that one.

  292. Josi! No its not a swear word. Your safe

  293. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    josie.. πŸ˜† :LOL;

  294. lurker ck says:

    Janel!!! Thank you for the playlist!!! Love the way you guys are all ninja on here!!!
    LOVE, “Somewhere only we can know” and ” Everybody hurts”!!!
    Can’t wait! I wonder which songs got the whole symphony treatment!
    He looks GORGEOUS in the album picture….but yet not totally himself. It looks too airbrushed or something.
    In those tweets posted who is MIB?????

  295. Anita, it’s alright not to like the cover. I didn’t like his first album cover either. Whats important is whats in it.

  296. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    DFT πŸ˜†

    Cindy, NA Marathons, of course πŸ˜€

    supergrand, yes, the walls are padded, but
    plaid padded walls are optional, too much of
    a good thing ya know. Plus, plaid outfits, plaid
    bedding & plaid walls, well, we’re all dizzy enough
    as it is πŸ™„ G’night!

  297. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth.. Thanks for all the info on the accomodations. Sounds great. Can’t wait till I’m admitted!! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜‰

  298. Really a lurker says:

    lurker ck – I think MIB means “men in black” or security man.
    Am I right?

  299. kimk says:

    yes MIB is men in black. security guys.

  300. kimk says:

    josie lol lots of those words today. great cover!!

  301. josie says:


  302. josie says:

    Airbrushed, hairbrushed…I don’t care. lol. He’s looking good. Very very very very very very very good. πŸ™‚

  303. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    josie.. πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚

  304. DFT says:

    Hello Josie, Anita, Lurker ck, Really A Lurker
    Goodnight Beth!
    haha Josie

  305. josie says:

    Hi DFT! How are you doing?

  306. kimk says:

    lminah ‏@l_mina_h
    @kariontour Can i ask u something? Why is the album entitled “BEGIN.” (with a period)? πŸ™‚

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @l_mina_h don’t worry it will be explained. I know a lot of you are wondering!

  307. kimk says:

    karin ‏@zerogravity1
    @kariontour RT @zerogravity1: @zerogravity1 P.S. Sorry for all the spazzing today! I get a lil’ excited. ROFL!! #DA2014 #BEGIN

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @zerogravity1 I think its great! I love it all! Need to keep it all going!

  308. DFT says:

    Doing great, Josie! How are you doing? πŸ™‚ What a great day of ArchuNews!
    Kimk, the period intrigued me also. It is going to be awesome to find out why it has a period

  309. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    DFT your here? I thought you went to chat. I’m tuckered out. Lot of beautiful excitement today. It’s so nice to be a fan of David. Goodnight everyone.

  310. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    OK….I’m late to the party again…haven’t had time to read everyone’s posts from today, but saw David’s lovely BEGIN album cover….He looks so so good in green and it brings out his green eyes……WHERE CAN I FIND THE TRACK LIST TO BEGIN???? Miss Vicki

  311. DFT says:

    Yes, SuperGrandJudie. I am trying to be in 2 places at once LOL. Goodnight! Have a great night and awesome day tomorrow! πŸ™‚

  312. josie says:

    I’m doing well, just pretty busy these days, which is fine. Weren’t you taking classes awhile back? Are you done for now, or do you still have more?

  313. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Anita and all…I think David looks more mature and hot on this album cover….Miss Vicki

  314. kimk says:

    DFT hmm.. start period!? don’t dilly dally get to it!!?

  315. josie says:

    Sorry, that question was for DFT. David’s flustering me. lol.

  316. DFT says:

    Hello Miss Vicki! How are you? That is a great album cover! πŸ™‚
    Same here, Josie. I am staying pretty busy and usually just have enough time to lurk. I did finish my degree and am now working on getting certified to teach as well as taking cake decorating classes.

  317. Really a lurker says:

    Miss Vickie – this article was posted by Janel this morning containing the tracklist:


  318. lurker ck says:

    Wow, I would have never knowen MIB ment the security guys! Thanks!
    I can’t decide, when I first look at the picture all I think is GEORGEOUS and start to drool but then I think…he doesn’t look quite like himself….I am starting to think it’s painted over.
    I loved his first album cover, even though he was serious, which is not like himself -he looked hot!
    Did not like CFTH. Cute but strange smile.
    LOVED the cute candid picture on TOSOD!!

  319. josie says:

    Oh, you finished your degree..that’s great! I dunno much about the certification process, but hopefully that’ll go smoothly for you. And cake decorating classes…not my thing, but it’s cool that you’re doing that.

  320. kimk says:

    I am liking his John Travolta chin!

  321. Really a lurker says:

    TOSOD was my favorite album cover up to now. It looks like they did something to the eyes on this one but its still a good pic. He’s not a kid anymore, in this pic he does look much more mature. Linda, you’re right, the music is what’s important.

  322. DFT says:

    haha I know, Kimk!
    Thanks Josie. πŸ™‚

  323. blue says:

    john travolta chin? LOL

  324. glitter*girl says:

    thrilled that david is doing a christina song. she is one of my favorite singers! i think christina and charice are the best female singers in the world πŸ™‚

  325. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    I am just SPEECHLESS…..David has grown up and matured so so much….Can’t wait for this album…..Miss Vicki

  326. Dan says:

    I can’t freaking wait to hear David sing “Everybody Hurts.” That song and I go back away’s.

  327. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hi DFT and Really a lurker…..Thanks for posting the track list again for me….This really proves to us that David can sing pop music with messages and I think he will eventually sing (and write) these kinds of songs when he gets back from his Mission….I can still see him being a relevant artist who is HIP in his own way and not planning to go “to religious” on us….David has never preached his religion to us and I don’t expect him to when he gets back….CONGRATS MR. DAVID ON DOING THINGS YOUR WAY…..Miss Vicki

  328. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hi Dan…and others who haven’t posted for a while….I guess it takes big news to get all the David fans up and excited again….Miss Vicki

  329. glitter*girl says:

    only songs on the list i really don’t like are the U2 one and the cindy lauper one.

  330. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    glitter*girl…Wonder if David is keeping in touch with Charice while he is on his Mission….Miss Vicki

  331. nora says:

    goodnight everyone. Sleep tight. talk more tomorrow.this was fun

  332. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    glitter*girl…I don’t necessarily like the Cindy Lauper song or the U2 song…..but David thinks enough about these songs for one reason or another and wanted to record them. HE WILL MAKE THESE SONGS HIS OWN and interpret these songs in HIS OWN WAY…nuff said….( I’m on a roll tonight all) ….Miss Vicki

    miss vicki- i am 100% positive i will love david’s version of true colors. it’s a nice song, i just have never liked cindy’s voice.

  334. David has matured so much, your right Miss Vicki. Can you imagine what he will look like in 2 years. Hope we won’t have to wait that long to see the changes. Can’t wait for ING and BEGIN.

  335. glitter*girl says:

    yes i wonder about him and charice too. we never did get to find out if they were just friends or something more.

  336. Dan says:

    I thought I remember reading somewhere that they weren’t in contact anymore. Don’t take my word for it though.

  337. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey everyone….. it speaks volumes to us that David recorded the music video and most of his work in the Phillipines on VALENTINES DAY….It just shows us how much HE LOVES US….Night all…Miss Vicki

  338. Candy says:

    OH That CD Cover, I still havent recovered, my fav cover to date! I love everything about it, the scruffy thing, the John Travolta chin (thanks kimk) the EYES and the epic HAIR!! Cant forget the lips, and the flawless skin!! The mood it sets is reflective like the track list.

  339. Lily says:

    Miss Vicki- according to the Philippines Celebrity news, from what we heard, Charice no longer the same person, she already have other preferences, not a man. It seems David and Charice have no contact anymore, but not quite sure. What I’m sure is they never had any relationship aside from friends before.

  340. Anita says:

    Linda-Thanks! It certainly is the most mature looking album cover of David’s to date, though. Even if I don’t love it, I’m glad other fans do. I also wasn’t loving his debut album cover either. You’re right, what’s in it is most important!

    Hello DFT! Even though I’m not over the moon about the cover, it’s been an exciting day for David fans, and we have more exciting days ahead!

  341. glitter*girl says:

    lily- thanks for that charice update πŸ™‚

  342. Evening all, I really love the picture! The fact is David is growing up and maturing right before our eyes!!! No doubt about it… It’s going to be so exciting to hear this new album. But then it’ll be so sad when we dont get anything new from him for so long. I guess we just need to be grateful for anything we can get. He worked so hard for us and that is one thoughtful caring young man. I think we all miss him more that ever after today. Have a great rest of the evening for anyone who is still up.

  343. sydnie says:

    OMG, OMG, OMG! BEGIN. track list & cd cover both announced on the same day, I’m speechless! So excited i don’t even know who to thank first! πŸ˜€
    I adore the album cover & D looks lovely but his piercing eyes do kinda look twilightish haha!

  344. oops, more than ever….

  345. Candy says:

    is it 2014 yet?? BEGIN.TOUR PLEASE!

  346. Candy says:

    if a cd cover and track list can cause this kind of excitement, ok spazzing, cant imagine what it will be like when he returns 2 years older, tan, fluent in Spanish an faces his fans for the first time on TOUR. #pandemonium

  347. Lurker03 says:

    if you’re interested where we got the Rainbow MV “rumors”
    around 1:06

  348. Fiona says:

    Ooh Candy, can’t wait for that day!! It is going to be CRAZY!!!!!!!!

  349. Lurkero3, OMJosh. That [Promo reel is awesome. David dancing, hope it comes true and they have a rainbow MV. later on after ING.

  350. Pickles says:

    Hello everybody.
    yes I remember there was a video of David dancing and its not like David is going to be dancing in a sad video like I’ll Never Go

  351. jeani/ut says:


  352. Grace says:

    Lily, I didn’t know what’s going on with Charice. I wondered why she and David never contacted each other when he stayed in the Phils because I read that she was there too to celebrate a family birthday. Looks like she’s going thru a phase in her life. Her new look is weird.

  353. Pickles i think its for Rainbow. Hope we get to see it sometime. May be after the ING mv, later in the year.

  354. joujou says:

    So I showed my sister the cover and asked her if D reminded her of someone else in it. And guess what she said………..”a toned down Adam Lambert”, haha!! So I’m not the only one who thought it. And I didn’t even give her any hints that that’s what I thought. He is gorgeous, is all I can say. No. Matter. What.

    I like the John Legend version of Pride.

    I’m excited to hear why the period at the end of Begin. Hopefully D recorded a nice long vlog or interview for us explaining everything. I am DYING to hear from him. Yes the leaks and everything are great and SUPER exciting. I just miss that personal connection to him. Hopefully there is something to help with that in the next 2 months.

  355. Diane says:

    Hey Archies! Found the clip for rumoured Rainbow MV! It’s somewhere in the middle of the video! http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=6M256LE5gNw

    If you can’t see it, just type “paolo bernaldo demo reel 2012” in YouTube!

  356. VaBeachArchie says:

  358. kimk says:

    David has 1,110,419 followers!

    I LOVE the BEGIN. cover.. love the tracklist.. is it August 7 YET!!!!??

  359. kimk says:


    MyDear Writer ‏@MyDearWriter
    Saw this poster of David’s Forevermore album @ Astroplus inside SM Novaliches (across TV5). ☺☺

  360. kimk says:

    joujou Kari said there will be an explanation why BEGIN. guessing it might be something like a pre-recorded vlog. hopes!!

    Janel as for sales have no clue how BEGIN will do.. will it be on itunes, in the stores?
    promo? David can’t do anything so nothing on that front to promote it unless he pre-recorded some things?
    maybe the record label will promote it? does say it on the list you provided. also
    word of mouth will sell it if it comes out really well.. saw that with Adele’s 21. I remember it was
    all folks could talk about was how great it was.
    as for me.. have NO problem buying my share and gifting.
    as I always do. lol
    I cannot wait to get my grubby lil hands on that green package of gorgeousness!!

  361. kimk says:

    Janel from what I see so far folks like the tracklist and most like the cover so if the early buzz has anything to do with it BEGIN should do very nicely indeed!

  362. kimk says:

    lol I love this cover.. geesh I would buy it just for that!!


  363. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Here I go yet again….trying to analyse WHY did david choose each of these songs. What was he wanting to convey? What does it mean to him? What feelings and experiences was he having that made him choose these songs? Wish he could just sit down and have a convo with me and tell me the answers to those questions.
    Sheesh, i’m still wondering about the answers to those questions on forevermore and now I have to start wondering about the songs on Begin. Oh please david, can you just start explaining each song through Kari. Maybe one song per week?

  364. kimk says:

    Shanny lol. love this WHOLE tracklist and hope he did sit down and explain each song choice!!
    wondering right now.. what is Broken.
    sounds sad.
    also wondering will it be released before August 7 as a single!?

  365. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    I also think the cover doesn’t look 100% like david. Maybe if they unphotoshopped the rings out of his eyes and let us see their natural glow. Maybe his face looks a little more filled out and the chin dimple has been emphasized? Anyway, still think it looks handsome and I really love the reflective hopeful, peaceful, relaxed expression.

    Hi ya Kim. πŸ™‚ A lot for this poor girl to take in at the moment. Kinda feel like I have to tread carefully and just savour each little part of the gift. πŸ™‚

    Q102 Ultimate Fan Poll!


  367. kimk says:

    Shanny hehe.. think they should consider him for super hero, vampire or werewolf movie roles.
    haunting yet serene and gorgeous and I admit to being a tad addicted to it!

  368. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Kim, these songs amaze me. This is going to be one album to truly showcase The Voice! I didn’t think I was familiar with the Keane song and followed the link you, posted. Turns out I have heard the song before and sitting and listening to the lyrics and relating them to david…..kind of made me sad. I wish I knew what he means by that song. It kind of spoke to me about david’s sometimes overwhelmed feelings and made me feel sad for him. Wish it was possible for him to travel through this world without any sadness…but alas…we all experience ups and downs no matter who we are.
    Contemplating these songs is making me feel a little overwhelmed right now. He illicits so much emotion through his singing but when allowed to chose for himself, he also illicits lots of emotion in me through his SONG CHOICES too!

  369. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    *elicits…although his music could be classed as illicit in some ways too. πŸ˜†

  370. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Ha, maybe he could be a superhero and sing Northern Lights for the sound track. Still think someone in hollywood needs to pick that song up with david singing it.

  371. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    What is this supposed controversy about Beautiful?

    I’ve always just thought of it as a powerful song and I think it fits david perfectly in terms of message and i’m intrigued to hear how he will sing it.

  372. kimk says:

    Shanny not sure if controversy is the right word? just that it has been an inspirational song for the gay community as well as anybody who feels downtrodden? great message song. I cannot wait to hear David sing this.. especially the part where he says HE is beautiful. acceptance for himself perhaps? love it and it will be the first song I listen to!
    Xtina’s vid for the song.

  373. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Oh my goodness…have loved Angel since the days of Cities of Angels…got the soundtrack just for that song…but just went and listened to it again….and boy oh boy….thinking of david….it’s deep and poignant and kinda sad but beautiful all at the same time. Not sure if i’m going to be able to listen to this album lol….it’s going to make it so hard loving that guy from afar. These songs make me want to just put my arms around him and comfort him. I can hear so much sadness but also deep strength and faith.

  374. kimk says:

    Shanny was thinking or guessing Somewhere Only We Know by Keane might be his inspiration for the cd?
    wasn’t familiar with it but from what I can tell seems to BEGIN has meaning in it?
    it is sad in a way.. I as well am wondering what it is that would have him feel this way?
    why him singing Beautiful will mean so much to me.

  375. kimk says:

    Shanny goodness yes Angel as well. lol we will be toast.. with jelly and jam by the time we get thru this cd.
    you listen to the REM song yet? same thing.


    oh and then there is Be Still My Soul.
    I really might need therapy after this.
    or perhaps it might be a cleansing of sorts?

  376. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Kim, thanks for the link. Watching that I see why it may have.caused controversy which is such a shame because it has such a powerful universal message. The lyrics remind me that words are powerful things (there is life and death in words) but that I am of great worth and I am strong and can rise above the junk in life that tries to pull you down. And it reminds me of the worth and beauty in others too and to make sure that I use my words and my influence to uplift and strengthen others.

  377. kimk says:

    Shanny the song has an amazing message.. to love yourself no matter what others say. I love it and love that he is singing it. Xtina’s vocals are quite amazing there and really looking forward to what David will come up with for his version. I know he can sing it like her but he might go a more subdued route? oh goodness if he goes soulful with a ton of ooohhs and aaahhhs… heaven help me.
    need to see him sing this LIVE!!

  378. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Haha, yeah cleansing and therapy! πŸ˜† Will se be a.bunch of bawling babies by the time we’re through listening?. πŸ˜†
    Whenever I think of that REM song…it reminds me of a programme I saw years ago about a house for troubled teens and there was this one boy who was really unresponsive and was about to run away and suicide…until he heard that song and realised that…well…EVERYBODY hurts sometimes and he could be strong and overcome the problems in his life. It was touching.
    Well…let me go and listen to that one again…although i’m sure it’s gonna do me in, thinking of david. lol…Think I might need a.roll of toilet paper instead of just a tissue. lol

  379. kimk says:

    hehe.. do you know you can customize toilet paper..


  380. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Oh my goodness…yes I can see him taking Beautiful in a soulful smooth direction!!!! …if so…tell me now cos I value my life!
    I know we talk about dying so often when it comes to david and that glorious voice…but come on…the day will surely come at this rate! Lol
    After idol, I didn’t think it was possible for him to improve upon perfection but our guy just keeps getting better and better. Did we sign up for an early death when we took the red pill and became certified ODD Archies!?

  381. kimk says:

    Shanny lol Marylee and I lost it our first VIP. was in a smallish room.. his voice really is a gift from heaven. I never heard anything so Beautiful.

  382. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Listened to that song now…it’s like what u said up thread Kim – these songs make me love that guy so much. I feel like those words are so inadequate to express my appreciation for him and how grateful I am to be one of the ‘chosen’ ones who ‘know’ of this person David Archuleta.

  383. kimk says:

    Shanny no clue how this cd will do but one thing I do know. it will keep his name out there til he gets back.
    way I see it only one way to go and that is UP!!!!

  384. VaBeachArchie says:

    David has always chosen covers that surprised me! But they always are PERFECT…and I wind up liking them better than the original! Interested in seeing how he connects with these covers…sure a daunting job!

    kimk….that VIP was mindblowing! He looked so small, shy and then he SANG….such power…felt like you were engulfed in his voice! TEARS! FAN FOR LIFE!

  385. kimk says:

    VABeach on stage as he sounds amazing you really don’t understand until you hear him that way. was like angels singing.
