Somewhere Only We Know Exclusive Preview!

Can this post get any longer???  We have been given so many goodies today.  Ask, and you shall receive, David Archuleta fans.  Or answer a question, and you shall also receive.

Here you go.  Right from David Archuleta, Kari Sellards and the OS.  Bless them all.  I’ll embed in a bit, but here is the announcement on the site.  Click here to go to the site to listen!

David wants to know!

Remember, he wants to know about covers only!  I goofed and responded with Broken too lol!

* * * * *

New BTS pic!

Notice how David is in colour, while everything else is black and white?  Is art imitating life?

BEGIN.  The Next Chapter.

Could this be more clues on the meaning of BEGIN. ?  Makes total sense to me.  As tweeted by DeseretBook yesterday:

What’s this all about?  HanneDenmark asked:

I can imagine the excitement with the first poster citing at Deseret.  We’ll need pix of that!  Thanks for all the info, Deseret!  And thanks for asking, Hanne!

* * * * *

BEGIN. selling!

This is David’s gift to the fans, but still excitement at the momentum in pre-sales.  Remember our international friends in deciding how many to pre-order.  You can never have enough David Archuleta music for yourself or to share!

David appears THREE TIMES on the Deseret home page!  Click on the bottom pic to go!

Walmart.com Best Sellers!  Guess what is selling best! At a great price!

BEGIN. is number 3!  That’s pretty darn best!  And a great price too!

Thanks Martha for sending this in.  The article is in French, but can be easily translated.  I did so below:

Some of article gets lost in translation, but I encourage you to read it.  It talks about what David can expect over the next two years.  Click on the link here to do so.  I love this paragraph:

This is what life will be like David Archuleta. When he returns home in two years, it is likely that fans will see a young man matured, more sensitive to what’s important in life. This is an experience that will change forever, and most young men and women who serve missions remember it as a defining moment.

Stadium of Fire memories

David Archuleta performing at Stadium of Fire ~credit: @smileyMichelleA

I was lucky enough to go to Stadium of Fire last year in celebration of US Independence Day and it was an amazing experience.  Although not American, I could not help but feel moved with the reverence shown by the organizers and performers, especially David Archuleta. The men and women of armed forces, past and present were honoured throughout the night.

A few pix and slideshows, and an awesome SSB,  for you to enjoy….

These are from Kim:

And these are from Lily:

A few from me……

And early Fourth of July to you……

Very moving!

This is a audio file and video file combined Music sung by David Archuleta at age 11 and Video is Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversaty Celebration. Thanks so much Dorothy!

E x c e p t i o n a l

Wow!  Jasmine @ QuinnBlairWaldorf has done it again.  Listen to this   b e a u t i f u l   tribute vid.  The lyrics are amazing.  Here is the video description:

It’s just a simple video really, too simple. Just another Archu-vid, this time the song is dedicated by us fans toward David; telling him that’s he is exceptional and incredible and that he is wonderful the way he is.


* * * * *

Thanks to EVERYONE who sends info to our frontpage account and tweets us with information.  We appreciate it!  There is lots more that you have sent in to share over the next few days.

Have a great Tuesday!!!

    Pastel you have outdone yourself today on this wonderful post! Thanks so much!

    I just love all the pics of the crowd and the happy looks on their faces. I wonder what it feels like for David to look out into a sea of faces.

    There is only one word for the Exceptional video…… E X C E P T I O N A L! Fabulous fan video!

    I just love the b&w photo Kari tweeted yesterday.

    Thank you FOD!! One of the best! Happy Fourth of July to you all.

  16. Anne-Marie says:

    Woah! Thanks Martha for that info on the devotional concert in Chile! Love seeing that David is able to use his gorgeous voice down there! Also love seeing the picture of him with all of the other young missionaries! 🙂

    Good morning everyone!

    Thanks Pastel for the lovely post today! Love those SOF pics from last year! 🙂

  17. angelbymyside says:

    lol just saw this tweet from Eula. She’s a fan-girl for sure!


    “@GaffudVince: @oheulacaballero Justin Bieber or One Direction? #AskEula =D”–David Archuleta

  18. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    This concert of devotional music looks like a public event. At the bottom it says “Inviting All Single Young Adults”. Interesting to see how this will turn out on July 15. Are these type of events common?

  19. kimk says:

    anybody notice..

    kimak ‏@kimak
    @zerogravity1 you notice @DavidArchie BEGIN & @justinbieber Believe LOOK SIMILAR!?



  20. angelbymyside says:

    Martha ~ I think those young adult events are a common occurrence.

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie
    Question David has for you: If you could hear a snippet of 1 of the covers off the BEGIN. album coming out Aug 7th what would it be? (ks)


    lol I said.. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

  22. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    abms – Then I guess he’ll probably be singing in a performance type setting more, even though he probably won’t consider it “performing”. Thats good for him, he’s using his gift for what he believes in and I’m sure those in authority in his church are happy about this. Imagine the interest this concert will bring!

  23. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    I voted Broken and Beautiful!

  24. sarahhazel says:

    Happy 97th day!!! Stupendous, fantabulous Tuesday post, Pastel!!!
    Stunning pics and vids from the SOF of last year….memories!
    Love the audience pics….the adoring faces!…that’s where the man gets his energy from!
    Congrats to Gwen!
    Beautiful fan vid once again by QBW!

  25. Grace says:

    Morning FOD!!
    Thanks Pastel for the wonderful post!!
    Love the pics of the crowd in David concerts. Thanks for reminding me to send out a postcard. My postcards don’t have much space to write in but good for advertising my city. lol.
    Martha, thanks!! July 15 is Josh Bradley’s birthday and he’s having a devotional music concert to celebrate the birthday. haha.

  26. sarahhazel says:

    So happy to know David can give his voice a workout with a music event like that in Chile. Can’t get that one-of-a-kind magnificent golden voice get rusty!

  27. angelbymyside says:

    I voted for Pride (In The Name of Love)


  28. cq#DA2014 says:

    Pastel all kind of wonderfullness in today’s post.
    This statement from the article you post got to me:
    “likely that fans will see a young man matured, more sensitive to what’s important in life” To me David already is so sensitive to what’s important in life. I really am hoping to get a more mature David, but sensitivity he has that covered, lol.

  29. sarahhazel says:

    Those young single adults will get a treat of their lifetime with the VOICE!

  30. Zelle says:

    Hello all! 🙂

    Awesome post, Pastel! So many contributors today, so cool. 🙂 And thank you for including the Summer Music Essentials pic in today’s post haha.

    Alittle tidbit: It was my fIrst day at work yesterday, and afterwards I passed by Trinoma (the same mall where David was launched by Bench). Just happened upon this record bar and I was wondering if they were promoting anything of David’s when this awesome poster came to my sight. 🙂 Forevermore CDs were lined up on the shelves, too.

  31. sarahhazel says:

    SNIPPET??? I’d like it to be Pride (U2)….though…I don’t care really what it is….just wanna hear it!!!….and SOON!!!!

  32. sarahhazel says:

    Zelle–thank you that!….love that they put David is front and center!

  33. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    There’s alot of tweeting with snippet choices! His question is getting a good response!

  34. sarahhazel says:

  36. LMAO over the fanpic Kari posted in reply to Naree cos I can see myself there but am not that visible to others. David was in Manila for 38 days and I was in almost all his appearances and I was able to elude all random cam opps. Am so ninja!

    Have a great day dear FOD peeps!

  37. angelbymyside says:

    jackryan ~ I spotted you in the pic as soon as I saw it. haha

  38. You did ABMS?! I almost missed it to be honest, lol

    Meanwhile, 36 days left before BEGIN. – so exciting!

  39. angelbymyside says:

    This is the first song after Broken that I am listening to when I get BEGIN.


  40. sarahhazel says:

    abms–me too!

  41. kimk says:

    oh which one is jackryan!!?

  42. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Holy Cow, guys look at this. This was on David Archuleta Venezuela!!!! Makes my heart glad!!!!! http://twitpic.com/a3gb1s

  43. kimk says:

    for me.. going to probably sit myself in my car and start from Beautiful and not stop.. lol that is my plan but bet anything I will hit replay a ton of times!!
    want to hear them ALL!!

  44. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–LOL…it’s me inside my van!

  45. fan says:

    I was remembering that at the end of chords of strength David had a list of songs that were is favorite and had an explanation of why. I wondered if any of those were on begin. I went to check and 1 of them is. I wonder how many of you will go check it out. I’m not gonna say go see for yourself and answer back. HeHe

  46. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Oh my heavens, can’t stop smiling about that devotional. Oh, to be able to see that or hear a recording. Man!!!

  47. Listening to David’s music – in full blast inside my car – the only time I appreciate traffic 🙂

    To be enveloped by that voice – GAH!

  48. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Hmmm, reposting the link. Everyone is talking about the snippets, LOOK EVERYONE, LOOK!!! http://twitpic.com/a3gb1s

  49. angelbymyside says:

    fan ~ Angel by Sarah McLachlan 😀

  50. angelbymyside says:

    Janel ~ heehee Martha already posted that earlier. 😀

  51. Janel aka Nellie says:

    OK, but I’m excited!!! LOLOL…..sorry for the repost.

  52. Good morning, everyone. Great post this morning. Have to rush off to work so will comment on everything when i get back. Will comment on one thing, I want to hear PRIDE first thing. Just can’t imagine how David will sing that. I’m sure it will be different but good.

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

    Good Morning Everyone! I want a snippet of each song, hehehehe 😆 But, if I had to choose, I’d say In The Name of Love. I agree with Linda, really anxious to hear how he will sing that one. But, I’ll take any snippet they want to give us, TODAY, in the next couple of hours, in 15 minutes, OK, RIGHT NOW 😀

  54. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    Wow! I’ve seen so many tweets come across @DavidArchie, David’s twitter. People are really responding to his question.

  55. jeani UT says:

    Well I hope some of those missionaries have blogs.

  56. Janel aka Nellie says:

    On the devotional picture Elder Coello is the one he was in the bus ride photo with that surfaced the other day.
    Music devotionals are very common. I’ve been to ones with and without missionaries. Usually someone speaks too in them. Just makes my heart so happy. I’m glad we know how and what he’s doing. Wonder what he’ll sing…..

  57. joujou says:

    I couldnt choose between Beautiful and Everybody Hurts.

    My first thought when I saw the flyer for the young single adult devotional was, I hope they are prepared for a packed house. Then I saw the mention of a live stream and I thought yes please. And then I got super excited. Is it bad for me to hope there is a super ninja Archie down in Chile? We need a Chilean version of jackryan. Hehe.

  58. angelbymyside says:

    jeani UT ~ me too 😉

  59. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Loved the Exceptional video from the fans. What a great word!!!

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

    Hey Jeani! Me too! I’ll take any info they want to share, dont care what anyone else says, lol. I remember that someone said David sings alot. I’m guessing probably every Sunday, at least. Oh & when he’s sleeping too, lol.

    Janel, Would be fun to find out what David & the others will sing 😀

    Hey Martha! I’ve tried to look up tweets about David, have a link I’ve always used in the past, but it doesnt work. I cant look up any tweets at all anymore, do you know why? Do you have to have an account, be signed in? Or, could it be my browser. I get occaisional notes on different websites saying my browser is out of date. If you dont know thats ok, just wondering if you knew or if anyone else knows 😀

  61. joujou says:

    Janel I’m going to bet Pres. MacArthur will be the speaker. He’s spoken at Education Week before and you can find some of them on byutv.org. He is fabulous and I’m glad that he is D’s mission pres.

  62. Anne-Marie says:

    GAH!!! So sweet of David to want to know which song on Begin. we would love to hear if only could listen to one. This is hard but I chose Somewhere Only We Know by Keane. Always loved that song & have been listening to it on my iPod.

    “Oh simple thing, where have you gone? I’m getting older & 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!”

  63. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Not at all Jeani, it’s what I’m hoping for. Even just sound would be good!!

  64. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    Janel or anyone who can answer – Are those type of events video-taped or are they considered to be off-limits to that kind of thing. Or is audio-recording allowed?

  65. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Jeani, joujou anyone else in Utah….mark Tuesday, August 14th on your calendar, Utah fan dinner at Simply Thai in Sandy. More details as time goes. Breanne and I are looking for people to help out any way they can.

  66. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Martha, depends on when and where. BYU has devotionals all the time that are taped. I guess it depends if there’s a video camera there to tape it. LOL….at the devotional I went to with David Osmond (it was for young adults, but he invited anyone to come) people’s cell phones were recording. 🙂

  67. kimk says:

    Janel lol good to be excited.. we ALL are and boy would I love to be there too!

  68. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    Beth – I think you need a twitter account to see the tweets sent to David. You enter @DavidArchie in the Search box and they should pop up.

    I don’t think you need a twitter account to see his twitter (tweets he writes). You do a google search and it will come up (David Archuleta twitter). But to see the tweets to him you do.

    Don’t know about the browser question, sorry. Others might could help you

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

    Hey Martha! I tried that too. I typed in @davidarchie on my computer, it came up to select, I selected it, but nothing, I cant even do that. This happened awhile back, then I could see all tweets people sent about David, now the last few weeks or month, I couldnt do it again. I’m wondering if I hit a button on my computer or something.

    Sorry, somethings come up, gotta go, but I’ll check for responses to my questions a little later. Take Care All, TTYL 😀

  70. kimk says:

    Deseret Book ‏@DeseretBook
    Question David has for you: If you could hear a snippet of 1 of the covers off the BEGIN. album what would it be? (via @davidarchie) #BEGIN

  71. Grace says:

    Hey guys, question..
    On David Archuleta wiki page, it says he is serving a mission in Chile, not South America. Do you think it’s OK to specify the country although he didn’t say officially?

  72. joujou says:

    Martha they usually are not recorded. It’ll be a similar setting as when he sang BSMS and the girl videoed it on her phone. It would be very disruptive if somebody had their camera out and was obviously recording but if they did it discreetly it probs wouldn’t be a huge deal. I know there are probably other Mormons who would disagree with me and say it shouldn’t be recorded at all. But I honestly don’t see the problem with sharing this special event with more people than just those who will be in the room that night. Especially when you consider it will only be major hardcore David fans who will be super grateful to feel somewhat connected to him and to hear anything new sung by him. As long as people are respectful of my religion and don’t make rude or distespectful comments about what they observe from being a fly on the wall then I don’t see where the problem would be. I think an audio recording would be the best bet as you can easily record on your cellphone without anybody knowing. I did that on fathers day when my kids sang in sacrament meeting but my husband wasnt there because he is still out of state. Then I emailed it to him and he listened to it and replied within minutes. I would’ve loved to have videoed it but didn’t feel comfortable doing that. Plus I had to keep my hands free to keep the twins under control.

  73. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    joujou – I thought that might be the case, unless only the ones putting on the event videotaped. It can be disruptive especially if those attending are not regular attendees and don’t know what’s proper. Audio would be less disruptive. I’m just happy he will be getting to sing (probably on more than one occasion) and an audio or video tape would be extra.

  74. joujou says:

    Janel good point about the BYU devotionals being recorded and even televised. Even more reason why I don’t think it’d be an issue as long as people recording are discreet and not disruptive to the setting. That is interesting about David osmonds devotional with people with their cellphones out. Where was that? Was it in a chapel? Is D’s devotional going to be in a chapel or another building? That might make a difference as far as people’s feeling about reverence and respect for recording.

  75. joujou says:

    Martha I think it would be great of people who don’t normally go to these types of things went. In case any Chilean fans are lurking here and plan to attend: to feel more comfortable and to blend in you will want to wear church clothes (a dress for girls and a white shirt and tie for boys).

  76. joujou says:

    K I better get back to my day. Getting ready to take kids to swim lessons. Love to you all.

  77. candy says:

    A concert in for singles?? I would bet every elder and sister in Chile will be there with hopes of no longer being
    on that list. So much for keeping things Low key. Have
    a musical concert with Daviid Archuleta as
    the headliner. Bet we will get lots of pics now .

  78. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    The concert is taking place at Avenida Grecia 319 in Rancagua. Don’t know if thats a church address or a hall. I bet this mission is happy to have David.

  79. Jhen says:

    Beautiful picture of David in color and Black and white in the background.
    Like all the pictures of the reactions of Fans.
    David look amazing in the new picture surface at the bus.

  80. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    candy – I know, they are putting him front and center. I don’t blame them, they want to get their message out.

  81. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    ..and I’m sure he’s very agreeable.

  82. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–Oh I be they are!

  83. Jhen says:

    whoa! David will have a concert in Chile for singles? Can David find his love too over there lol

  84. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–I wonder if a lot of singles fan will come?…..hope they have a lot of seats….haha….OR……maybe David himself will find a very lovely single lady there? hmmmm…..

  85. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–you read my mind! 🙂

  86. sarahhazel says:

    *single fans*

  87. Janel aka Nellie says:

    joujou, it was here in Pleasant Grove, Utah. I didn’t tape it because at the time I was new to my cell phone and didn’t know how. People weren’t taking pictures, and most of them had their cell phones down on their laps, so I think most were just recording audio. BYU devotionals are recorded btw, by KBYU.
    I wonder with the whole flier and everything if they do plan to record it. Time will tell. Don’t you live in Utah??? Not sure if you saw my post earlier.

  88. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Go to Youtube and search “devotional” you’ll find several.

  89. bridget says:

    OMGosh…fingers crossed for some video of music from 7/15…David will be in his element 🙂

  91. Jhen says:

    sarah- who know’s when David come back after his mission, he already find someone he love lol

  92. kimk says:

    lol can we talk Archubabies again!

  93. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    Elizabeth Smart met her now husband while they both were on missions. I don’t think it was long after they were done that they got married.

  94. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–Jhen started it….haha!

  95. kimk says:

    for some reason I think the purpose of a young single adults concert is not to meet David.. or lol the original purpose anyway.

  96. Gwen says:

    Fabulous post today ML. Loved all the SOF pictures. What an amazing time that was. Best 4th ever. Nobody sings our National Anthem better than David. Brings me to tears every time .Thanks.

  97. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–maybe one of the girls in that group picture? 😉

  98. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol we are silly.. I am so happy he is getting to sing!!!
    gosh I really hope we are lucky enough to get an audio.. I
    miss THE VOICE!!

  99. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–audio will be more than enough!

  100. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Remember me mentioning about the camel taking a long drink before it goes out into the dessert? All this stuff David left us and these little things that keep popping up from his mission are his cool drinks of water for us to survive on. I can’t help but think Kari and David have something else up their sleeves to give us after Begin.

  101. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–that’s a cute video of JO and his family!

  102. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–I hope they do because we have a long way to go. Don’t wanna sound greedy but we can’t have nothing, nada, zero David stuff after BEGIN. 😕

  103. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    Sorry to get philisophical, but social media sure has made the world a small place!

  104. cq#DA2014 says:

    So happy that David tweeted about BEGIN.
    Lucky singles in Chile that go to that concert….listening to that voice is pure heaven.
    As far as David love life, I hope he doesn’t make that M move right after mission. I think he needs time to just date, imo. BTW, what’s up with all the hook ups, I thought that missionaries could not even think in that way at all. A little confused about this whole mission thing.

  105. Janel aka Nellie says:

    See you!!

  106. Janel aka Nellie says:

    JAS stands for Youth Single Adults.

  107. sarahhazel says:

    cq–he’ll probably do just that (date)….but you’ll never know….if it’s destiny, it’s destiny.

  108. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Thinking and acting upon what your thinking is two different things CQ. But as far as David goes, having never had a relationship, just can’t see him jumping into one so quickly. You don’t know if he’ll meet someone he’ll have an attraction to, but wouldn’t act on it until after his mission is over. Elizabeth Smart didn’t date her husband until after their missions were over. I know a lot of people this happened to. We can’t know what will happen with David because time and God has a way of making things happen. If the girl David is meant to spend eternity with is in Chile, then it will happen, if not, then it won’t. He will break hearts no matter who he marries or when he gets married. I just hope he won’t lose fans over it.

  109. joujou says:

    The YSA (young single adult or JAS in Chile) program is usually for singles ages 18-30. They have SA (single adult) activities for those 30+. In a church that is so family oriented it can be a lonely place for people who are single so the church has instituted programs/activities for those who are single so they can have a “family” (of sorts) to do things with (like family home evening on Monday nights). Especially when kids go off to college and arent around their own families Many times people will find their future spouses through these programs/activities. I did.

  110. Connie@Toronto says:

    I enjoyed every post especially Jasmine – Exceptional tribute, love it. David’s fan are all amazing, what can I say. Lot’s of bits and pieces to keep us busy to pass the time while we are waiting for David to come back in 2014. Memories that keep us together because of David. Meeting beautiful people exchanging messages are all because of DAVID. Isn’t it overwhelming? Because of one person’s music we meet friends around the world. David’s passion to music and interpretation of every songs he sang to connect to his audience is indescribable and because of his music we all connect to each other. He became part of our daily life. Our day will not be complete without listening to his songs, tweeting, writing comments on different fan sites, browsing the internet, etc etc are all because of David. I’m AMAZE. David’s fans are the “ULTIMATE FANS” ever… Hope you know that David.

    BTW, where are you in the pic Jackryan?

    Stadium of fire young David’s intro of the National Anthem was genius. He’ll be singing in Chile this year.

    “BEGIN” snippet is on the way. David you are really “BEAUTIFUL” inside and out.

    Thanks for the beautiful post everyday. It’s much appreciated.

  111. sarahhazel says:

    Connie–very well said. 🙂

  112. kimk says:

    Have a good day all!

  115. sarahhazel says:

    Pastel–thanks!….wonder if he will go with what the majority of fans say…..on sites and on Twitter?

  116. candy says:

    Kimk you know that, and I know that its about the music, but tell that to his fans in Chile. Some won’t care what its about…its David!
    So frustrating typing on a phone, hope my internet is up and running soon.

  117. sarahhazel says:

    joujou–wow, you met your hubby in a YSA?….did you guys date long or marry soon?….just curious…hehe….

  122. sarahhazel says:

    candy–thinking of the same too….if I were a single fan in Chile, I’d go if I can…it could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see him up close….(but not too close!)

  123. breanne says:

    I’ll Never Go mv has 67,000+ views:

    Looking so good! (to kimk: not a sad fan video) 🙂

  125. Heidijoy says:

    Thanks for the wonderful Post Pastel and all the contributors.

    Funny story: I was at a Computer Society Meeting for beginner’s last evening and brought my Laptop. It just so happens, that I have one of those Crowd Pictures as the HBackground on my computer. ha! Busted. Luckily the friend with me alreay knows I’m a big DA fan and right away knew it must be one of his Audiences. We had a neat little discussion about his fans. She said “Their all Young” We then talked about how people like JR are there but know how to be Ninja!!

    Love all the trips down Memory Lane and am estatic that David is singing in a Concert there. Hope we have some Ninja’s there like JR as stated above. It looks very public with the Poster and all. It’s nice that other Missionaries will sing too.

  126. jennyfromthebay says:

    Josh Bradley is only like 4 months older than me. Cool! 🙂
    And is there an “all of the above” option for which cover I want a snippet of? Hehe

  127. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol!!! will watch then!!

  128. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ha I love that strut he does.. but.. that vid all I got to say is.. whatever.

  129. joujou says:

    Sarahhazel when you go off to college (depending on where you go of course) the LDS church will have what we call an ‘Institute of Religion’. That us where most of the lds kids who go to that college hang out. It’s like a home away from home. It’s where you go to church, it’s where you study, hang out with friends, take religion classes and there are weekly activities there if not more often and my favorite was the dances. 🙂 I went to the one at the U of A in Tucson. There were 4 singles wards (congregations) that met there with hundreds of lds students so I didn’t know everybody, mostly just the people in my ward and institute classes. I met my husband in the parking lot as I was going home on a Wednesday night after an activity. Then we met again the next monday when he came to Family Home Evening with a former mission companion of his who went to the same FHE as me because he was in my ward. We hit it off and started dating right away. Three months later we were married.

  130. joujou says:

    Janel, forgot to answer this earlier. No I don’t live in Utah anymore. 🙁 thanks for the info. I’m sure it will be lots of fun. Wish I could come.

  131. sarahhazel says:

    joujou–woah! 3 months?…what a whirlwind romance!…guess it was meant to be!

  132. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–huh? “whatever”?….ya didn’t like it?

  133. joujou says:

    Sarahhazel yeah it was fast, faster than we had planned. But it all worked out.

  134. Grace says:

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie
    Thanks for the responses to what snippet you all want to hear from BEGIN. Its between Somewhere Only We Know and Angel. Stay tuned (ks)

    Woohoo!!! Stay tuned!!!!!

  135. sarahhazel says:

    Eeeekk! Could be EH or DGU???!!!!

  136. sarahhazel says:

    I have a feeling it’s gonna be DGU.

  137. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol at the end it says that tongue in cheek. it was nice!
    what is what??

  138. kimk says:

    what is DGU?

  139. sarahhazel says:

    Wait, now I think it’s gonna be EH….LOL….I don’t care….just give it to us now!!!

  140. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–Don’t Give Up

  141. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–“what is what?”…..we are confusing each other now….haha!

  142. Ali says:

    sarahhazel — i’m a little confused. doesn’t that tweet from “david” say that the snippet will be either angel or somewhere only we know? Or are you talking about something else with the song titles?

  143. Ali says:

    of the two songs mentioned, my personal preference is for SOWK. its more current and i think will generate more buzz, if they’re looking for a little album promo. on a personal note, i’m also really excited to hear him sing that one 😉

  144. Penny (dangitdavid) says:

    Just stopping in for a sec to say that I shouldn’t have watched the Exceptional vid while at work……..OMG waterworks!!! Going to find a crying corner here in the office somewhere *sobbing* BBL

  162. Anne-Marie says:

    Hey Anne Marie, Thanks, I’ll follow you too 😀

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

    Hey you guys! Have some patience for me in regards to twitter, ok?, lol. I’m following several people already & I may not see a tweet right away. Twitter is alot of work, lol. Its fun though.

  166. Janel aka Nellie says:

    One of the young girls on one of the David FB groups I’m on lives in Chile (her name is Bruny). She is going to the Musical Devotional and promises a full report. I told her I hope they’ll let people at least record an audio of the performances. Stay tuned…..

  167. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Attention Utah Fans: Fan dinner at Simply Thai in Sandy, Utah, Tuesday August 14th at 6:30ish. Please reply with a yes-no-or maybe. Please let Breanne and I know if you can help. Email me, FB message me, twitter message me, or just say so here. 🙂

  168. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–I know…got confused too…but I thought tweet meant that the song would be positioned between SOWK and Angel in the track listing…thus, I thought it would either be EH or DGU…does that make sense? If not, then just disregard what I said…hehe…

  169. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–That’s great! Can’t wait for the full report and a possible audio! Yay!!!

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

    Gotta go for a bit, will check in later. Thanks for following me on twitter 😀 Adios!

    Oh, I just ordered 3 copies of Begin. 😀

  171. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:
  172. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Was on the phone with a girl at Simply Thai and she said she was looking at a picture of David with the owner, Nally. She’s going to have Nally call me, but knows she’ll accomodate us. At the TOSOD dinner at Mimi’s Cafe we had about 35 people. Going to change the time to 6:00 PM, but if people need to come later, they still can.

  173. sarahhazel says:

    OMH!!! That sounds wonderful!!! More, please…haha!

  174. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    Beth and jackryan – Thanks!! That beautiful voice!!

  175. joujou says:

    Ahhhh I’m on my phone and can’t figure out how to listen to the snippet. I hope somebody uploads it to YouTube soon. Jackryan????? Haha. ;P

  176. Pickles says:

    Oh my gosh just beautiful so happy that he kept the piano part there!!!!

  177. kimk says:


    Deseret Book ‏@DeseretBook
    The wait is over @DavidArchie fans! Here’s an exclusive pre-view of “Somewhere Only We Know”.

  178. Pickles says:

    Thank you thank you Kari!! In love how she put the par where it says BEGIN.

  179. lurker ck says:

    I’d like to go to the dinner on Aug 14. I don’t check in too often, I hope I remember!
    LOVE the snippet!!! His voice is like butt’a!

  180. kmb says:

    ksf – I just got caught up with Javid. OH MY GOODNESS!!! The proposal was BEAUTIFUL! Super super kilig! What’s next, Edgar proposing to Lisa? That would certainly be icing on the cake 🙂

  181. Grace says:

    Wow, looks like each song has a snippet and Kari is just waiting for a cue.
    How can we get her to play another song?? lol.
    Can’t wait to hear the whole album!

  182. kimk says:

    OH MY HECK>>>>> i LOVE IT!

    he sings it outrageously and not only that the music quality and production is fabulous!

    ok not cheesy!! YES!!!

  183. kimk says:

    I love the beginning.. ‘so tell me when you’re gonna let me in’ he sings it differently!

    his voice is so strong in this snippet!!

  184. jennyfromthebay says:

    OMG!!! That snippet!!! I love it!!!

  185. angelbymyside says:

    Doing a HAPPY dance. 20 seconds never sounded so good! 😀

  186. kimk says:

    lol I want it to be AUGUST 7!!!!

    kudos David’s team.. great job!!!

  187. kmb says:

    OHMYHECK!!! I LOVE the SOWK snippet! So does that mean that’s the only snippet we’re getting?

    So Josh Bradley’s birthday is July 15th. Cool! Thanks MDW for the tidbit.

    The Olympics will cut into my FOD time (the trials already have), but they only happen every 2 years and I figure FOD will always be here to come back to. Would you all mind if I post about the Olympics here, even though it’s not David related? Would that be okay? I am a sportsaholic for sure. My favorite summer sports are gymnastics, swimming, diving, and volleyball. My favorite winter sport is figure skating. Two things I can go on and on about are sports and David 😀

  188. nora says:

    Thank you Kari!!!! just loved the snippet. Can’t wait for aug 7. His voice is so beautiful he sounds great.

  189. Cheryl #DA2014 says:

    Janel–would love to come to the dinner at Simply Thai, if possible. My grandson is having his missionary talk at church on Aug. 12th prior to his leaving on his mission, so will have lots of family here at that time. So don’t know if I can make it for sure–keep me updated and I will try and come, if possible.

  190. kimk says:

    Janel eeeek.. let us know what happens if they go!!

  191. joujou says:

    ok finally got on a computer so I could hear the snippet. PURE HEAVEN!!! Can’t wait for the rest of the album. Poor Candy……I hope she can listen to it on her phone, or that somebody will upload it to youtube soon.

  192. joujou says:

    Oh and Janel……..I’m sooooo hoping Bruny can get at least an audio recording of D singing. 😀

  193. joujou says:

    Guys……….is it just me or David have the most beautiful voice in the whole world???? (I’m sure this is a revelation for you all as well. *wink wink* I mean you’re all here cuz of his good looks right? ;P haha)

  194. sarahhazel says:

    Dang, can’t stop listening to that snippet! Bet the rest has surprise runs, twists and turns only the Archuleta can deliver!

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

    kimk, I just saw a tweet from MrsMary about that director editing the MV for Rainbow? Does that mean we will get a video for Rainbow? Gosh, I sure hope so.

  196. kimk says:



    MrsMaryfromNC ‏@MrsMaryfromNC
    @paolobernaldo OK, David Archuleta in blue V-neck Demo Reel 2012…what music video is this??? Rainbow???

    Paolo Bernaldo ‏@paolobernaldo
    @MrsMaryfromNC Yes it’s David A’s Rainbow music video 🙂 almost done with the edit.

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

    joujou 😀

    sarahhazel, You got that right 😀

  198. kimk says:

    Beth YES!!!!!!!!! eek!

  199. sarahhazel says:

    YES!!! a Rainbow MV!!! 🙂

  200. Russ says:

    Hello everyone. Just stopping in for a minute. I have not jumped ship and never will and have to say I love the snippet. I voted for Bridge Over Troubled Water but love what I heard of Somewhere Only We Know. I do believe Begin is going to be a huge success. Great songs, great voice, great artist.

  201. kimk says:

    Russ I think so too.. all of it not just David’s vocals are very well done.

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

    Hey Sutty! If your lurking, I’m following you on twitter 😀 I have twitter now. My name on twitter is WingsFOD 😀

  203. sarahhazel says:

    Listening to the John Legend/Pink cover of Don’t Give Up….awesome….just know David’s gonna KILL that song big time!
    (getting chills just thinking about it)

  204. sarahhazel says:

    Russ–me too….feeling really good about this album. 🙂

  205. angelbymyside says:

    Hi Russ 🙂

    Our cup runneth over…snippets, BEGIN. release on 8/7, another mv…this time for Rainbow……we are blessed! So grateful to David and all his hard work for us! 😀

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

    Hey Russ!!! So good to see you & I agree 😀

    sarahhazel, I think its been said there’s a surprise on the cd, I wonder if it has anything to do with who he’ll be singing that song with, if its a duet. I think it would be hard not to sing it as a duet.

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


  208. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–that possible duet in another thing to get excited about!

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

    sarahhazel, I saw a you tube vid of Peter Gabriel & Paula Cole singing it, pretty dang good. Wonder who will sing it with him? Cant wait to find out.

  210. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–saw that one too….the live performance….yep, pretty good!

  211. kimk says:

    Pink and John Legend Don’t Give Up is great!


  212. tami lyn says:

    o m g you guys. maybe it’s jeannette!

  213. tami lyn says:

    OR maybe it’s brooke!!

  214. cq#DA2014 says:

    Just got home to such a lovely surprise: SNIPPET!!!! love, love, love it, can’t stop listening. Talk about making me super excited for the album. HAPPY DANCE!!!!!!
    Thanks Janel for explain the whole hook up thing in a mission. Got it they can think, but they can’t do anything until after the mission.

  215. sarahhazel says:

    There are 10 songs in the album and 5 weeks left before the release of BEGIN….so maybe we’ll get 1 or 2 snippets every week starting this week?! 😉

  216. Lucy says:

    Went to hear the snippet and it’s gone!! Where else can I hear it!,,

  217. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–LOL…let the guessing game BEGIN.!

  218. sarahhazel says:

    Lucy–just listened to it….it’s still there at the OS.

  219. lct#DA2014 says:

    Love it, Love it He Ha!! Cannot wait! Got to listen to it but had to disguise my German URL!

    Loved that McKenzie Harris tweeted the snip to msn, mtv, yahoo and a few other places. Now I call that the beginning of promo! One fan, a few tweets = lots of PR and sales! 🙂

  220. sarahhazel says:

    lct–hoping for a lot of buzz starting tomorrow!

  221. Russ says:

    Beth, abms, Kimk, and everyone. Nice to see all of you. Been crazy around here.
    We had a bad storm at the end of May that knocked a tree down, landing on my house and also crushing my car. That and many other things going on around here.

  222. lct#DA2014 says:

    Crossing my fingers, eyes, toes Sarahazel – that this may be what David needed! He already had the talent, looks – just needed some great songs!

  223. Just got home from work, and OMJ what a surprise. I am so excited to hear the rest of this song and the whole album.

  224. lct#DA2014 says:

    It’s almost morning – gotta get back in bed, but just had to get up to see if there was anything from Kari and sure ‘nuf! Good nite everyone. Enjoy!

  225. tami lyn says:

    sarah- hi! yes what an interesting and exciting day this turned out to be!! 🙂

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

    Russ, Oh My Heck, so sorry to hear about the storm damage. Hope things are getting better for you 😀

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

    Goodnight LCT 😀

  228. sarahhazel says:

    lct–yes, he’s got what it takes and I think he does have great songs…he just needs to be promoted right IMO.

  229. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–things are gonna heat up pretty soon leading to the release date!

  230. kmb says:

    The surprises just keep coming today!!!!!! I’m SO EXCITED to see the MV for RAINBOW 😀 😀 😀

  231. Janel aka Nellie says:

    OK, I got the scoop from Nally, the owner of Simply Thai. She said the Archuleta family has been at her restaurant over the years easily 50 times or more. She catered for them for his concert at Abravanel Hall (mission announcement) and for his missionary farewell.
    Things the family usually orders:
    Satay: Chicken or pork marinated in a coconut milk curry, skewered and grilled.
    Served with peanut sauce.
    Creamy Thai coconut soup with sliced chicken breast, galangal, mushrooms, onions,
    cilantro, red and green bell peppers, baby corn and lime sauce.
    PAD THAI (David)
    Sauteed rice noodles in a Simply Thai special sauce with choice of meat, egg,
    carrots, scallions and bean sprouts. Garnished with bean sprouts, carrots and
    ground peanuts.

    Lyrics for Dont Give Up, by Peter Gabriel
    “Don’t Give Up”

    in this proud land we grew up strong
    we were wanted all along
    I was taught to fight, taught to win
    I never thought I could fail

    no fight left or so it seems
    I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
    I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name
    but no one wants you when you lose

    don’t give up
    ‘cos you have friends
    don’t give up
    you’re not beaten yet
    don’t give up
    I know you can make it good

    though I saw it all around
    never thought I could be affected
    thought that we’d be the last to go
    it is so strange the way things turn

    drove the night toward my home
    the place that I was born, on the lakeside
    as daylight broke, I saw the earth
    the trees had burned down to the ground

    don’t give up
    you still have us
    don’t give up
    we don’t need much of anything
    don’t give up
    ’cause somewhere there’s a place
    where we belong

    rest your head
    you worry too much
    it’s going to be alright
    when times get rough
    you can fall back on us
    don’t give up
    please don’t give up

    ‘got to walk out of here
    I can’t take anymore
    going to stand on that bridge
    keep my eyes down below
    whatever may come
    and whatever may go
    that river’s flowing
    that river’s flowing

    moved on to another town
    tried hard to settle down
    for every job, so many men
    so many men no-one needs

    don’t give up
    ’cause you have friends
    don’t give up
    you’re not the only one
    don’t give up
    no reason to be ashamed
    don’t give up
    you still have us
    don’t give up now
    we’re proud of who you are
    don’t give up
    you know it’s never been easy
    don’t give up
    ’cause I believe there’s the a place
    there’s a place where we belong

  236. joujou says:

    Janel you keep this up and I just may have to make the trip up there for the fan dinner. It sounds soooo amazing. Especially knowing its where D eats and what he eats.

  237. Janel aka Nellie says:

    joujou where do you live??

  238. ray says:

    standing by with crash cart and white coats,that snippet WHOOOOOOO

  239. Janel aka Nellie says:

  240. kimk says:

    ray lol good idea!!

    Janel isn’t it grand!!!!!!

  241. kimk says:

    Paolo Bernaldo ‏@paolobernaldo
    @MrsMaryfromNC Yes it’s David A’s Rainbow music video 🙂 almost done with the edit.

  246. Amanda Jane says:

    Totally floored by the snippet today. Gah, just love it. <3 Are we spoiled rotten or what?! 🙂

    I'm so proud to be David Archuleta fan. 🙂 I don't know what we did to deserve to be fans of such an awesome dude, but wow.

  247. Miss Vicki says:

    Just checking in….Love the snippet of” Somewhere Only We Know” ….SO SO EXCITED FOR BEGIN…..I have to differ with something that was said in the article about David at the top of this post…..It says David will return more mature and more sensitive to the things that are most important in life…..David is already so so mature for his age (think he’s actually more mature that most middle aged men) and I think he already knows what’s most important in life…Just gotta think he will be imparting his wisdom to the other missionaries and people he comes in contact with during his Mission….I’m just so proud and honored to be a fan of David Archuleta…..Miss Vicki

  248. sigi says:

    Sooooo excited and looking forward for the Rainbow MV! Love when he sang but baby this is life now don’t get mad, Even if there is pain now.There’s a rainbow always after the rain.

  249. Miss Vicki says:

    Janel….What a menu!!!!! That Thai restaurant needs to hire the Archulata clan for marketing purposes….HA HA HA……Miss Vicki

  250. Frankie says:

    You called to ask about what they eat? Uhhhh.

  251. CindyUT says:

    Hi everyone! Wow!!! I love the snippet! David sounded so good in what little we heard. Can’t wait for the CD!!!! Oh, and another MV…..for Rainbow!!!! I feel like a spoiled fan with all these goodies from David!!! Just think….this is all because HE LOVES US!!!!!
    🙂 🙂 🙂

    (I bet you can’t guess I’m super excited right now!!! :smile:)

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

    CindyUT, Are you excited??? 😆 We are very lucky. Not to mention, at some point we are suppose to get the video of David dancing the Dougie 😀 Might not happen for several months yet though. I think its suppose to be a year after David left,lol.

  253. Can’t wait til BEGIN. Comes out Aug 7. Lots of buzz is what we need. I know its going to be epic. And Rainbow MV Geez!!! David you are too good to us. I just have this wonderful feeling that David and Kari have a lot of surprises for us between now and the time he comes home.
    God Bless you David. I also want to wish all the Utah fans a wonderful fan gathering, i’m jealous. just waiting to see if we have one in Ariz and or Cali again so that i can go.

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

    Hey Linda! I agree 😀

  255. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Thank you sarahhazel!!

  256. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Frankie, no….it’s where we’re having our Utah fan dinner in August. She told me what they order and if it’s spicy because I don’t like spicy. Believe it or not, she doesn’t like spicy either, she just cooks it. LOL

  257. CindyUT says:

    Yes, Beth….I’m excited!!! In fact I’m so excited I finally pre-ordered my copies of BEGIN.!!!!! 🙂

  258. Miss Vicki says:

    sigi…gotta agree with you…the way he sings the word “MAD” in rainbow is out of this world….all the little runs are awesome…..I keep playing that part of the song over and over and over again……Miss Vicki

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

    CindyUT, lol, me too.

  260. CindyUT says:

    I’m also feeling kind of hyper, too!! haha!!! 🙂

  261. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hey guys! 🙂 was just quickly stopping in to wish the American Archies a Happy 4th of July! 🙂
    And then got quite excitable with all the wonderful news on the front page…including THE snippet! Oh my goodness…something about hearing new David music just makes the day instantly shiny and bright! Here I was thinking I wasn’t quite ready for the new album since i’m still fully enjoying the Forevermore album…but after hearing that snippet…Bring. It. On!!! 😆
    And allof the other wonderfulness! What a great day to be an Archuleta fan! 😆 😀
    THANKS pastel! You’re a honey. 🙂

  262. sarahhazel says:

  268. edi says:

    When I saw ING mv it’s just brought me back to Elvis Presley yt from 1st movie King Creole he sang Crawfish if anyone can bring that over from yt u will c scene is part of the movie scene: in his bedroom, walk out to a tiny balcony and sing while walk back into the bedroom comb his hair can see behind thin white curtain and walk out putting his blue plaid shirt on top of the white t-shirt and walk back to the balcony again. David got that same product in him I’m waiting for it to come out ha ha…this clip was simply hot hot hot just like David’s ING MV.

    And my short list for David for 2014 “If I Can Dream” by Elvis I can see David doing this song, inspiration type song. Elvis is in white suits in that yt video. If someone can bring these 2 video to share I would be happy because I don’t know how to.

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Hey Shanny, Goodnight Shanny!

    Candy, If you’re somehow lurking with your phone,
    it was me on Twitter who asked you if you knew who
    was saying Hello to you on twitter. I am WingsFOD
    on twitter. Gosh, hope you get use of your computer
    soon:grin: Goodnight!

  270. sarahhazel says:

    One of the comments at mjs said Shadow Mtn. posted on their FB that the album is gonna be available on iTunes and Amazon. 😕

  271. breanne says:

    I’ll Never Go mv:

    Forevermore mv:

    CindyUT: did you read Janel’s comment about the Fan Dinner on Tuesday, Aug 14th at 6 pm at Simply Thai? The comment is at 5:04 pm.

  272. Was on tweeter and found this. On you tube
    One Direction-Up All Night Tour. They play Touch my hand by David for the background song. Really feels good to hear that
    Don’t know how to bring it over, but you should view it.

  273. sarahhazel says:

    edi–this one? Elvis comes out around 2:07

  274. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    The event page on Facebook for the Devotional Music Concert on July 15:


  275. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Wow, I think its fabulous david is doing a musical event down there in Chile. He’s my hero. 😆

    Listening to that snippet….think my hubby will have to become a fan for sure. lol I wonder if this could be the album that will force my hubby to just admit to himself, that he ought to give up the fight and just succumb to the voice and call himself an Archie? lololol

  276. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–read about that somewhere & I think they had a link….didn’t clicked on it LOL

  277. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    Here is a translation by Bing of most of the page:

    Sunday, July 15, 2012
    6: 00 pm until 8: 00 pm in UTC-04 Center Jas Rancagua, AV. Greece 319

    We invite you to participate in our next great Devocional Center Jas Rancagua. This time the music will be the main guest.We will have the opportunity to hear a: Elder Archuleta, Elder Coello, Elder Jara, Elder Taylor, Cotton sister, sister Johnson, Christopher Godoy, Paul lamb and the choir of the Rancagua Jas Center.KEYNOTE speaker: James D. MacArthur, President of the Chile Rancagua mission. With the theme “The Mission of our Savior Jesus Christ”Hope to see you!

    Kids I know that perhaps I’m not one to say it, but I hope not to forget what is the real meaning of a devotional, don’t forget that Elder Archuleta is serving a mission and that deserves respect, you should know that it is not any man, has a special deal with every man and woman who were called upon to serve, for those who do not know, if you have the possibility to be welcomed for women is only the hand. I understand that they are fans, but they also understand our rules. Indeed I hope everything will go well and come many with heart ready to listen, to spend a pleasant moment, and to be in contact with our Heavenly Father, hugs 🙂

  278. kimk says:

    it was posted in the last post.. it is ok. nice to hear David’s TMH!!

    Martha thanks.. LOVE that he is doing music there! hope a ton go too!

  279. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–gonna wait for my family’s feedback too when I get the album!

  280. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I miss that on the last post?…yikes! what’s wrong with me???

  281. CindyUT says:

    Breanne, yes I did see Janel’s post. I sent her a message on the Utah Fans of David FB page.

  282. kimk says:


    has 10,000 views already today.

    glad they used TMH!

  283. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Sarahhazel…wowza, been seeing little comments about the place about various storms in the US. 🙁 (Russ, sorry about your house and car! 😯 )

    Nite nite Bethy! Sleep well, may pleasant david snippets float happily through your dreams. 🙂

    Linda – haha, love it! Guess they have to acknowledge a great concert song when they hear one. I bet everyone in the industry wishes Touch My Hand was theirs. lolol

  284. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol I think it was during the chest hair discussion.. this morning.

  285. sarahhazel says:

    Gonna call it a night, guys. Will listen to BOTW before bedtime…”to ease my (hyper) mind”…haha….GOODNIGHT EVERYONE AND HAPPY SNIPPET DREAMS!!! 🙂

  286. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Haha, love how the article tells the ladies to only shake hands with Elder Archuleta. I guess that means they are discouraging great big flailing fangirl hugs? 😆

  287. josie says:

    Sorry, I’ll never be able to refer to him as “Elder”. And I’ll never be talking about his chest hair, either. lol. Myyyyyyy goodness.

  288. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Chest hair discussions!? 😯 Bwhahaha! I guess things are never dull around here! 😆

  289. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Josie, I *think* i’m ok about both topics as long as they are not combined into one discussion…. 😆 😉

  290. kimk says:

    lol I do not understand that translation.

    are they saying if you are a woman only shake his hand?
    ok for guys to hug?

  291. Miss Vicki says:

    Love that David is singing for a program down in Chile…..They said he would be doing music on his Mission……Love that Touch My Hand is getting some promotion even if other artists use his song…….Sarahazel and edi….I just gotta say David is much more handsome than Elvis, has a better voice and has the “It” factor to boot….Just gotta think he will break out big time after this Mission just like Elvis did when he returned from the war…….I think he is slated for fame even if he doesn’t really want it that bad!!!!!….Miss Vicki

  292. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Sarahhazel – lol…yeah I think some calming strategies may be in order for lots of Archies to sleep tonight. lol Try to sleep well. lol

  293. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Kim…i’m thinking they expect for the guys to act cool and nonchalent and just shake hands, while they’re expecting the girls to go crazy for the guy. 😆

  294. Martha (formerly Really a Lurker) says:

    kimk – I translated with the Bing translator – its a little rough. Someone may be able to do it better. It does appear to say to only shake his hand. And they may be fans but they must follow the rules.

  295. angelbymyside says:

    That One Direction video in which they used TMH was done by a fan…nothing official by the group.

  296. Miss Vicki says:

    Chest hair discussions….What did I miss this morning???? Miss Vicki

  297. kimk says:

    angel the twitter account that posted that vid I think had over 40,000 followers. more then a simple fan.

  298. kimk says:

    Miss Vicki lol I think the pic Kari sent was in black and white and then his hands and face colored in. it kind of looks like there may be some.. I did not ask but sure thought it was funny.

  299. edi says:

    Sarahhazel, yes it is thanks. Plaid shirt? what am I thinking???????!!!!!!

  300. angelbymyside says:

    I find it funny that they have to give instructions to the girls coming to the devotional. Bet there will be a huge crowd of young adult single girls that turnout. 😉

  301. kimk says:

    Shanny oh lol.. I got you. no asking for hugs or heaven forbid the errant walk by.. kiss.


    lol I love this video!!

  302. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ that is interesting….40,000 followers. I just meant the video was a fan video and not an official one.

  303. kimk says:

    I love this snippet!!!!!!!!!!!!


  304. kimk says:

    angel I think they are a fan site of sorts? 1D is pretty huge now.. good that they used David’s song.
    lol hope they buy BEGIN!!!!!

  305. Oh1 THANK FOR THE INFO abms.

  306. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    I’m thinking it must be weird to be mixing like a regular guy with other regular guys but all the while knowing that everyone around you knows that a ton of girls think you’re a hot piece of honey they would clamour to scream and flail and squee over. I can hear david’s voice saying… “awkward”. 😆

    And with that and before I get myself into trouble, I better skidaddle..fod is too addictive. lol Love you guys and gals but i’ve got places to be and things to do. Take care friends. 🙂

  307. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ I guess 1D is big right now….however, if they walked in front of me I would have no idea who they are…never even heard one of their songs. lol

  308. kimk says:

    I really like the fact that most everyone I see likes the snippet.. A LOT!!

  309. kimk says:

    angel ha I would.. by the screaming girls trampling me. flat.

  310. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Oh and kim…haha, love that vid. It’s a classic! I have rewound and watched david’s expressions in the moments before and after, many times. lolol

  311. josie says:

    Shanny~:) Well, the only elders in my church are called “deacons”, or “board members”. The board consists of 4-5 peeps voted on by congregation members, who have an in-depth knowledge of the Bible and are normally a whole lot older than me. lol.

    So I’m a little confused about the 1D/ TMH connection, but that’s OK…A fan used TMH in the background of a 1D video, but the video has 40K views so it’s more than a fan?

  312. Miss Vicki says:

    Hey all….I might be late to the party but…I just learned Andy Griffith died today at his home in Manteo, NC….I grew up with the Andy Griffith show….gonna miss him….Miss Vicki

  313. josie says:

    abms~ Yeah, I have no idea who 1D is, either. The only singer I’d probably recognize would be Lady Gaga, for obvious reasons. haha.

  314. candy says:

    Gah to the nth degree….ohmyheck that snippet, David Buble I’ve been waiting four years for David to sing this kind of music. Loved the more mature up beat vibe!

  315. kimk says:

    angel I don’t mind them too much the young girls like them.. also giving JB a run for his money. they are the next big thing I suppose.
    if you want to this is a dj’s convo with JB. think fame is getting to him.
    warning.. not D related!

  316. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ Welcome back! Is your Internet service back up?

  317. kimk says:

    I follow a lot of the Filipino fans and younger D fans.. they are the new thing to talk about.

  318. candy says:

    Ha, love that they “warned” the women to only shake hands. I see the Archuletas reputation for giving two-armed hugs followed him to Chile!!

  319. kimk says:

    angel I found that interview interesting.. the dj reminded me of the kind that asked David tons of silly questions.

  320. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ Me thinks JB is a little full of himself

  321. candy says:

    Abms.-no internet or phone or tv. Typing on my phone sucks. Tomw will be day 5.

  322. kimk says:

    angel could be.. wouldn’t surprise me after all that is going on.

  323. kimk says:

    candy ugh!!!! 🙁

  324. candy says:

    Have to head to bed, getting up at 5:00 as in AM. Tmw is the parade we’ve been working on for a year. Good night all.

  325. angelbymyside says:

    candy ~ well thank goodness you have electricity in this heat. Saw a story on the news about a home owner in Somers Point who has fallen trees still resting on their house…they can’t find a tree company to take them down because they are all so busy with the damage from the storm.

  326. kimk says:

    Candy float in a parade? sounds wonderful.. enjoy and Happy 4th of July!!

  327. pocoelsy says:

    Hi all,

    Drop by to say “Happy 4th July” to all American Archies 🙂 <3

    Got lots to do today, so many exciting things going on in Archuland to day, so happy, will be back later if time and internet connection permit :). Have a great day all and hope you all have a good night sleep after all the good news.!!!!

  328. kimk says:

    josie yes it is more then a fan.. kind of like a huge fan site?

  329. josie says:

    Thanks, pocoelsy. You have a great day, too. 🙂 Happy 4th, everyone.

  330. josie says:

    kimk~ Ohh, that’s cool…:) Well, I need to get going. Have a good night.

  331. angelbymyside says:

    good night everyone 🙂

  332. Miss Vicki says:

    Good night all…and HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!!!!! Sweet David Dreams…..Miss Vicki

  333. Pickles says:

    hey everyone! I read the thing about David’s concert and the person is asking the fans if they meet David to only greet him with a shake.

  334. Pickles says:

    I was reading the comments in D’s singing event and one guy said he does not want people who are not LDS or from Rancagua to come because some people are coming from Argentina….but the person who created the FB said everyone is welcome even if there are not LDS. Looks like this guy does not want fans to just come to see David sing.

  335. jeani/ut says:

    Everyone in the neighborhood is celebrating the snippit it think. A lot of noise outside. We have fires all over Utah right now. Two different ones are close to two of my sons. We could really use some rain.

  336. Pickles says:

    Ok So I read the whole thing on D’s singing Event of FB. From what I understood member of the Centro(CENTER) Jas Rancagua can invited non members and member that are not active. There is one guy who said that he doesn’t wants David’s fans to come to the event just for David but for the LDS church.

  337. jeani/ut says:

    That guy is silly.

  338. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Jeani, took this picture earlier from my street of the fire in Alpine. Wasn’t caused by fireworks but by a back hoe. Either from the heat of the vehicle on the dry shrubbery or a spark from the hoe. I have friends who live closer to it. I could see it, but the wind was blowing the fire and smoke up hill. Couldn’t even smell it. http://twitpic.com/a3o5og

  339. Happy 4th of July US peeps!

    David and Kari sure knows how we can better celebrate it huh? 🙂

  340. McKenzie Harris says:

    LCT, twitter is such an easy way to promote David. I keep a running list of the twitter accounts of media/celebrities/radio stations/talk shows that support David and when there is something David related, I tweet it out to those people that I think are likely to do a blurb on it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I was happy to @ladyvmusic retweeted my link to the clip. I sorta thought she would because she has always had good things to say about David and her 10,000+ followers include lots of people in the music business. Hopefully, more fans from different countries will set up their own lists and tweet out David news. It’s so easy.

  341. cq#DA2014 says:

    Help! I can’t stop listening to that devine snippet. lol. A sample of what “fabulousness” we will here from BEGIN.
    AND…as if that’s not enough, we are going to get a Rainbow MV in the future, too!
    What a wonderful day in ARCHIELAND!!!!!!

  342. joujou says:

    Janel. Sorry I didn’t see your earlier post. Hopefully you see this. I’m in southeastern Az about an hour from Tucson. So a loooong drive to where you are. 🙂

  343. lct#DA2014 says:

    HAPPY 4th of July good ol’ US of A! This day means so much to me – living so far away and missing the good (& the bad) things about this great country! After many years of living in another community, country, continent – I have truly come to appreciate my roots! US gets dogged and criticized about a lot of things over here but I can say (after many years of traveling all over the world) – we have alot to be proud of! 🙂

    McKenzie, thanks so much for promoting David! It’s really a great idea and I hope others will do the same!

    It’s nice to see old names of fans leaving comments here. I’m sure David would love to see all of his fans leave a comment from all his “diehearts”

  344. sigi says:

    I’m gtad you agree with me. Can’t wait for the rainbow MV!

    Miss vicki.

  345. kimk says:

    Happy July 4th wonder FOD folks!! 😀

    jeani ut lol I think so.. as well they should the snippet is ARCHUMAZING!

    Hello all,

    The good news keeps comming today what a super dee duper day in Archuland 🙂 Thanks Kimk for bringing all the latest good news overhere, so nice to see BEGIN doing so well on Deseret book and Wallmart site, and the snippet of SOWK is the best 20 second of the day (which I press replay the whole day, but I know I’m not alone!!)

    Janel aka Nellie, The Archuleta sure knows their Thai food very well, all those dishes you mentioned are ..say…a must try dishes if you go to any Thai restuarant.
