Lovely Shelby!

 But which track?

The front of the CD says (so they tell me)  ‘includes Hit Single Everybody Hurts“.  And the first single out in Manila at least is EH.  That would be my guess!  But it’s just a guess lol!  What do you think?

As  you ponder that, here is the R.E.M. vid.  The ending!!!


At about 7:40 EDT we got a tweet that it was here!  Watch this poignant vid from David Archuleta and his team.

The description of the video reads:

David performs the REM classic “Everybody Hurts” with an orchestra which includes producer Kurt Bestor. The shots of David were recorded in a studio the day before he left on his mission.

“I hope you know that I never wanted to leave you guys without music, and will continue when I get back.” – David Archuleta 

Stunning. Poignant. The young couple, the struggling dad, the courageous mother. Yes, EVERYBODY hurts.

PLEASE go over and comment on the vid.   Comment here too!  How lucky are we that David, amid everything else going on in his personal life, arranged for this footage and to give us the beautiful, tasteful and impactful piece.  I’m very proud of him and the entire team!

Let’s start with BEGIN.ning with LOVE!  Thank you DavidArchuletaVN!

Next up, a review in the Preston Citizen:

Deseret Book recently released a new David Archuleta CD.

This Archuleta album was produced by Emmy award winning composer Kurt Bester, a legend in the music world. Bester, a composer with 30 years of music industry experience, teamed up with a rising star with a great voice.

The two make a great combination.

This album includes: Beautiful, by Christina Aguileara; Somewhere Only We Know, by Keane; Don’t Give Up, by Peter Gabriel and more.

Archuleta, became an American sensation at 16 years old, as one of the youngest contestants on the seventh season of American Idol, finishing in the number two slot.

This Archuleta CD is worth the $14.98 it sells for in the Citizen Bookstore.

From Knoxville.com

A mixed review from Knoxville.com.  Posting a portion here….

“Begin” is tasteful, dignified and understated, and Archuleta pulls off some surprises with his silky, sweet vocals.

He casts an aural glow of sincerity on Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful,” a graciously not-overdone version that resonates when he sings, “You are beautiful, no matter what they say.” He also delivers a deft take on Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know,” a smart, mid-tempo song choice that steers “Begin” away from a ballad badlands of monotony.

Naturally he’s confident and convincing on “Broken,” his solid original contribution to the collection, but Archuleta is almost shockingly effective on his rendition of U2’s “Pride (In the Name of Love),” which is glossier than the band’s version, but a suitable blend of earnestness and humility.

 The rest of the review is mixed.  You can read the rest here .  And make sure to add another comment to compliment the great one from @violet4ever!

A blast from the Britweek past!

Fresh off of the Olympics in London, @Britweek tweeted some pics out.

As usual, David picks the correct camera to look at.  What a gorgeous group!

What is BritWeek?

BritWeek is a celebration of all things British in California, highlighting the British connections. The Brits are the biggest foreign investors in the state.  BritWeek is the brainchild of renowned producer Nigel Lythgoe, who in 2007 approached then British Consul General Bob Peirce with the idea for an event that would showcase the rich connections between Britain and Southern California. This year, Britweek (apparently longer than one week) was celebrated April 24 to May 7.

I’d Walk A Thousand Miles For David Archuleta

~ Week 2 Progress Report ~

What a great week!  We had 28 people walk or run 241.5 miles this week.  @DA2014FitClub followers have walked 394.1 miles in a little less than two weeks and 32 different people have participated!  Great job everyone!  You can still join us and BEGIN. by following @DA2014FitClub & tweeting how many miles you walk/run. For those of you who don’t have a Twitter account, but want to participate, please email your miles to da2014fitclub@gmail.com.

We’ve had a few people send a twitpic of their walks, but we’d love for all of you to send a twitpic or twitvid of YOU walking or running!  It’s been a lot of fun to hear walking stories and learn what they’ve seen on their walks.  We heard Almond/Amond and many of his siblings were sited and also one walker ran into a “sand Dolphin”.  David reminders are everywhere!  Keep up the walking/running!

More pics from the vault

Yesterday I tweeted out that we’d love to post your pics, vids, gifs safely parked on memory sticks or hard drives in your possession.  Why hide them when you could share!

Martha responded with a pic taken by her husband right before I met him at the Sun Bowl Fan Fiesta 12/30/09.

* * * * *

Wait..wait…wait. Don’t gooooo!

True confession.  I often passed on “Wait” on the TOSOD Asia Tour Edition CD.  Lovely song, David’s vocals were strong, but, nothing it never really captured my imagination.  I went right to Notice Me.

Fast forward about 5 months when I heard Wait live at the MKOC tour.  Goodness gracious was this the same song?  Was lucky enough to watch David perform it in Irving Plaza the night Nate Campany (co-writer) turned up.    Pretty darned special.

Not only did the live version capture my imagination but David put his body and soul into that performance.  I got it.  As David once said, he made me understand it.  So, I’ve been on the hunt for vids that convey that feeling.  Love this one from @rhiminee from Westbury NY last December (opening night).  Note that most of this is shot from the side, so you can focus on  his hand movements, his stance, the reaching out, but nothing is there.   Watch and enjoy.

* * * * *

Balanced, happy, pensive David 🙂

Ending the Wednesday post with a collection of gifs/pix from the tumblr accounts of ohmyheckdavidarchie (handstand), fallingstarrs (audition) and ubiquitouscliques (pensive)

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

  1. Martha says:

    Good morning, everyone! Thanks Pastel for the great post as usual! Appreciate your posting my pic from 2009, a little blurry, but special to me. May this encourage other blurry picture owners to do the same and send in their pics! lol

    Something interesting: Yesterday looking on Itunes, BEGIN. went from #166 Pop Albums last evening, to #139 later on. It is now #104 this morning. THATS A JUMP OF 66 PLACES! Hmmm

  2. tami lyn says:

    good morning martha 🙂 when did david have time to make a music video??!

  3. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD! EXCITEMENT on the horizon!! BEGIN. MV, Nandto Ako DVD and maybe a single release! WAITING for info!

    Martha…That is interesting….hope it continues to move back up the charts! Still waiting for my last order from Walmart!

    ENJOY YOUR DAY AND BEGIN.! We are some LUCKY fans!

  4. Martha says:

    ***CORRECTION 62 INSTEAD OF 66, (but who’s counting) lol***

  5. roseinmaryland #DA2014 says:

    Good Morning FOD. WOW, lots of news this A.M. Goodness I love David’s voice. I listen to him sing Angel, and the one part that says “find comfort in the arms of an angel”, I find comfort in the voice of an angel. He just blows me away. There is no one like David. He gives me chills. I listen on the way to work, and on the way home, he is astounding. Have a great day guys. Boss is coming in today. I will check in later to see if there is anymore news. Wonderful posting FOD.

  6. grammyj says:

    Through the magic of video-editing a music video can be made. It could even be a video of David’s vocals without seeing him on the video. I would bet that they did film David singing the song before he left so a video could be made with him in it.

  7. ksf says:

    Good morning all! 🙂 Thanks for the new post!

    I was looking at the R.E.M. vid for Everybody Hurts and got caught in the R.E.M. memories web, lol. I had forgotten how epic and groundbreaking Losing My Religion was and R.E.M. for that matter. Thanks for the reminder!

    Anyway, have a great day everyone! 🙂

  8. Cheryl #DA2014 says:

    Good morning, everyone. Today is a bittersweet day for our family as our grandson, Ricky, will enter the MTC. We are excited for him to begin this new adventure and are proud of him for being willing to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Like David, Ricky knows that his service as a missionary is what he needs to do at this particular time in his life. We will miss him but are happy for his willingness to serve others! Thanks for a great post today…..it helps to soothe my heart and brings me happiness.

  9. kimk says:

    good morning folks!!

    going to guess the cj tweets we saw were true and Everybody Hurts is the song!
    also will guess that we will see David singing in it
    need to see that gorgeous face of his!

    that top pic.. what concert is that from?

  10. kimk says:

    think the guy tweeting about the mv said he learned to ride a scooter for it.

  11. VaBeachArchie says:

    kimk…Really hope that David is in the video too…not just the song! EXCITED to see what they came up with! The shirt looks like the one he wore in Greensboro…not sure though! Think he wore it more than once on that tour?!

  12. kimk says:

    by any chance that crouching pic with David and Kurt Bestor from Kari
    was for the making of the new music video!!!? 😯

  13. kimk says:

    VABeach good morning.. have a feeling in some way we will!!
    eek hope it was shot by Matt Clayton!!!!!

  14. kimk says:

    in that crouching pic.. David looked like Elvis!!
    anybody have that? on my phone.

  15. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Marylou, sent you an email earlier with the pictures you requested. 🙂

  16. Janel aka Nellie says:

    The “pensive” picture is just beautiful. (camoflauge shirt). He has such quiet intensity in his face at times.

  17. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I missed a couple of weeks for ideas to keep busy while David is gone. Here is what I missed, plus this weeks so you could, if you want to, choose to do any of these.
    Though, Aug 6-12 ended up being Begin. release week. LOL

    Week 17; Aug 6-12: Crush Week. Promote Crush on the radio, Have an Orange Crush party, make some of those Orange Crush necklaces (directions please), play crush here on FOD and Fanscene from different concerts, include Japanese remix.
    Week 18; Aug 13-19: If you don’t have a journal, start one. Write in it faithfully at least once a week until the end of David’s mission and beyond. If you have one, keep up with it. If you’re journal entries aren’t too personal and about David, share if you want; this week only.
    (Funny, I gave away those 3 journals at the fan dinner)
    Week 19; Aug 20-26: Cool off week. Take a David break and go swimming or to a water park.

  18. sarahhazel says:

    Happy 147th day!!! Thanks for the lovely post, Pastel!
    Still no MV? Wonder if we’ll get it today? Wanna David’s face on it!
    Love that pic by Shelby….all blue and gorgeous!
    Nice (side capture) Wait vid from Westbury….that was the 1st night, right? He must be so excited he sang the other verse’ lyrics on the 1st…LOL….(notice the smile there when he did)….it’s still great though!

  19. sarahhazel says:

    DavidArchie’s chick ‏@davidschickipoo

  20. Ali says:

    kimk – I think the top pic is from the St. Louis show on the Demi tour. I remeeeeember that shirt lol.

  21. kimk says:

    Ali ha funny how we go by clothes for him.. harder when he wears the same like when on tour.

    hmm Kari posted that the Matt Clayton pics were a photoshoot.. for WHAT THOUGH!!!!??

  22. kimk says:

    sarahhazel oh boy.. chickipoos pic!!!!! 😯

  23. Thank you Pastel for the new post. I’m excited for the video. Whatever it is , yes! i would love for David to be on it, if not i hope that his pictures from Matt Clayton are on there, because he takes awesome photo shots.
    I heard 2 of Davids songs on the radio at work yesterday. One was (Crush), and then ( Pride) I just smile all day when i hear him on radio.

  24. Grannycrush says:

    Linda from Cali I wish we had more DJ’s like yours. I haven’t heard David on the radio here in a couple years.

  25. Grannycrush, i am just lucky that our radio station is run by someone who liked David ever since he sang IMAGINE on AI. He plays the live audition too sometimes.

  26. Ali says:

    David’s BEGIN sales numbers for last week are out:

    David Archuleta, Begin (4,000, -68%, 14,000) (#138 BB200)

    LOL I know I said this last week too but those numbers are higher than I thought! I was figuring maybe 3,000. Average first to second week drop around 65-75%. Found this from Billboard when Madonna’s last album came out:

    “Most superstar albums that start at or near the top of the chart fall by 60% to 80% in their second week. And, high-debuting sets that are especially front-loaded by pre-orders, niche fanbases or unusual marketing campaigns take harder hits.”

    Hers dropped by 86.7% from first week to second.

  27. Ali says:

    Just wanted to clarify that by saying I thought the sales would be lower I meant because there’s really no standard promo for this album. First week sales were heavy loaded with all the preorders and diehard fans who were waiting on the album. Sales past the first week usually rely on continuing promo to raise awareness of the album and also radio play. Maybe some tv appearances in there too. Of course, David has none of that for this album. So that’s why I was surprised to only see a 68% drop off. That’s a good thing 🙂

    Maybe if we get a mv it will generate a few more sales too. Not sure how widely that will be seen though. I’m assuming it will be YT only. But I’m certainly looking forward to seeing it.

  28. Martha says:

    Ali – thanks. All that is very interesting

  29. sarahhazel says:

    This would be nice on the MV!
    @snowangelzz ‏@snowangelzz
    @kimak @Marylee_DA2014 I’m hoping they just filmed him singing in studio and will use clips of that (like in the DB commercial)?

  30. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–thanks for bringing in the info….thought it wasn’t bad at all….considering no promo….and I also think maybe the MV might help later for exposure. 🙂

  31. Martha says:

    Ali – I have a question for you. What do you make of the rise in rank on Itunes, however short-lived. I don’t know what it is now but last night it was #166 Pop to #136, to this morning #104. Thats a rise of 62 spots. What do you attribute this to?

  32. OoO says:

    hi Ali thanks for new sales number. I was hoping for a total of $15,000 but this is good. I wonder if this including DB. I was greedy for David haha.

  33. Martha says:

    This guy’s from the UK:

    Nick Bassett ‏@nickbassett1981
    Tell you what I need in my life. An album of David Archuleta covering Keane, REM, U2, Aguilera and Simon & Garfunkle http://davidarchuleta.com/home/?p=5030

  34. Ali says:

    Martha – it really doesn’t take much to bump up spots on the iTunes charts, especially the lower the album is AND especially when you’re looking at genre-specific charts. You can probably almost count the difference on your hands between those lower spots lol. Its always a good thing when an album moves up spots but I doubt it was a significant number of purchases. It might be that suddenly a group of gifted albums were redeemed. Those don’t count as sales until they giftee downloads them. That’s just an example of what the difference could be, btw, I’m not sure what the actual reason was.

  35. Ali says:

    OoO – yes, the Billboard numbers out today include sales at Deseret Book 🙂

  36. Martha says:

    Thanks, Ali. Learn something new every day.

  37. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–remember those avid fans Nesquick, Annie and a few others who posted vids and pics during the McFly tour?….wonder if they’re still active Archie fans?

  38. Oh! mu gosh, they are playing Crush on radio right now.

  39. Martha says:


    The notation in parenthesis says #138 BB200, guess that means he’s #138 on the Billboard Top 200

  40. Sarahhazel, that funny, i have often thought about those fans that talked to David at the McFly concert too. Sure would love to hear from them.

  41. Ali says:

    Martha – the thing about iTunes that’s nice and frustrating at the same time is that its so fluid. With Billboard, you get a weekly ranking. So. You’re there for a week — it may not be the highest but its steady. With iTunes you can possibly jump from 151 to 42 to to 59 to 234 to 876 in a matter of a day. No joke. So its exciting but somewhat exhausting lol.

  42. VaBeachArchie says:

    Ali…THANKS for the sales numbers and the explanations! Totally ignorant about the music scene and charts! All I know is what music and artists I like and buy!! David is at the TOP of my list….guess that’s NO surprise!

    Ohhh Time to vote on chart central and have some lunch! bbl

  43. Martha, does that mean that he dropped from #28 to #138? You know that wouldn’t shock David. He knows music business and he know what to expect because of his absence. I was just happy to have him Debut at #28. Brought alot of buzz for a while. Now we have to try and just keep his name out there.

  44. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–Archies think alike…haha! BTW, didn’t know McFly will have US shows next month….too bad David’s not here….maybe they would have invited him on stage for an impromptu number.

  45. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–I guess the volatility does make it exciting. Some music re-enter the charts after dropping out of 200…..would love for BEGIN. to stay in the 200 for a while though.

  46. Martha says:

    Linda – yeah, I guess thats what it means. But Ali is right, there will be ups and downs, its normal.

  47. Martha says:

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie
    Results for the BEGIN. photo contest coming in the next couple of days. So many wonderful submissions to go through. (ks)

  50. Ali says:

    Just went back and looked at 2nd week numbers for the other albums. The debut album had a 64% drop off the 2nd week (and that’s with TONS of promo for that album) and TOSOD had a 74% drop off for 2nd week. So I’d say BEGIN is right in the pocket at 68%.
    When you consider the fact that, unlike the other two, its an independent album and is not physically available in many stores — that’s preeeetty good.

  51. jazzy says:

    sarahhazel, Annie is still very much a David fan. She runs a website that I believe is called David Archuleta Fans Germany. I don’t know about Nes but I think he’s still a fan as well.

  52. Sarahhazel, maybe that would be a good project for us to keep ourselves going. Lets see if they are still active. We need to go to McFly / David concert videos to see if there are clues. HUMMM! SHERLOCK HOLMES. LOL.

  53. I’m not Sarahhazel, but thanks jazzy

  54. bychance says:

    speaking of David’s clothes…..the hoodie in Martha’s pic reminds me of Forevermore……

    We really are pretty lucky fans! That’s what I’m trying to focus on today and not chart #’s……that stuff kinda makes me crazy.

  55. sarahhazel says:

    jazzy–thanks….that’s good….gonna look up the Germany website….don’t think there’s any fan site in UK.

    Linda–sounds interesting! 🙂

  56. Martha says:

    by chance – what funny about the hoodie is that I have one like that which I bought BEFORE I saw David with one. lol

  57. OoO says:

    I just hope that the stores fill or refill his cd like they should have done in all the stores so that we will have a good number for next week.

  58. Ali says:

    Just saw the comment from earlier about the fans at the UK shows. As has already been mention, yes both of those named are still fans. Annie’s fansite is really great! You can check it out here: http://archuletafansgermany.com/
    On twitter she’s @AnnieDAFG

    Nes is on twitter too @nesquicus. 🙂

  59. bychance says:

    Martha –great minds think alike. Now I want one!

  60. sarahhazel says:


  61. bychance says:

    Ali – fun to see another fan site. My hubby knows German…..maybe another way to make him a fan! Love their pics of Davids.

  62. Martha says:

    by chance – lol

    sarahhazel – there is this site which I guess includes the UK:


  63. sarahhazel says:

    by chance–LOL…go for it, girl! (have him translate the stuff on that site!) 🙂

  64. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–thanks….interesting format there…..hope one day David does some shows in Europe!

  65. Martha says:

    sarahhazel – concerning the trending for tonight, the frontpage above says “trending topic is still being finalized, stay tuned.” Wonder if this one will be a topic related to BEGIN.

  66. Martha says:

    Sorry, this is what it says:

    Trending Wednesday Night!
    We’ll update with the correct phrase! Still being finalized! Hang tight, Archies!

  67. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–I e-mailed the mods this morning about that, so we’ll see what they say.

  68. sarahhazel says:

    Warning to twitterers: Someone called @itsallroses is posting XXX rated stuff on Twitter and disguising them as DA stuff. Please don’t click on it! 😡

    (Sorry, just makes me angry when these crazies link David’s name to evil & gross things!)

  69. Martha says:

    sarahhazel – Hoping its a BEGIN. topic, even though there’s been numerous ones, don’t see the purpose of a Nandito Ako trend since nothing is out yet and the trend would only be speaking to those in control of the DVD. A more creative topic about BEGIN. leading to more people looking it up or reading the tweets was what I was expecting. (Of course, I don’t come up with a solution so bring on the tomatoes).

  70. I thought i knew what the trend was, but not sure now! But either way, i will help trend if it has to do with David.

  71. Martha says:


    Deseret Book ‏@DeseretBook
    Is today good enough? RT @koneynuqui: @DeseretBook @DavidArchie When are we going to see the video you’ve just finished? #thisweek

  72. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–I agree. I think we should really be putting BEGIN. out there more so I was really surprised when I saw what it was. I really like Archies Heart Begin, but maybe we could do that Friday. I don’t know…..I don’t really set these things up….I just help if needed.

  73. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–me too….let’s see what happens….for me, just go with the flow.

  74. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–OMJ….MV maybe out today??? Squeeeee!!!!

  75. bychance says:

    Be back later…………. and hoping to see MV!!!!!!!!!!……is today good enough??are you kidding????

  76. Ali says:

    ahhhhhh a video today!!!! 😀 😀 😀

    you guys! 😀

  77. I have errands to run , be back in a dash, Interesting things going on today. Don’t want to miss.
    Sarahhazel, we need to find someone who knows how to set up trend for fri. We can send out tweets to promote trend. I just don’t know how to BEGIN. LOL

  78. Martha says:

    Deseret Book ‏@DeseretBook
    We just got a new poster on the wall here at corporate of @Davidarchie what do you think? http://instagr.am/p/Oo3j-mCNgx/

  79. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–awesome poster!….they should give it as a prize for a contest…..I wanna have it….haha!

  83. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Listening out for the screams acrossed the world, yup, I think I hear them….

  84. Virtue #2014 says:

    I wonder if any footage from Nandito Ako will be included in the musical video. There’s certainly plenty that would fit the theme.

  85. sarahhazel says:


  86. Virtue #2014 says:

    *rushes off to Twitter

  87. Martha says:

    Now I hope we’ll be trending about the video!!

  88. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I asked Kari if that was a trick question. LOL. no, don’t release a new video, we don’t really want one, that’s OK…..NOT! Release said video today. Please!!! LOL

  89. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–they’re screaming right now on Twitter….can’t keep up with it!

  90. angelbymyside says:

    Great post today Pastel. Thanks!

    Hello everyone….it’s gonna be a great day! 😀

  91. Janel aka Nellie says:

    From me to Kari: Janel Woodbury ‏@Nellie1983

    @kariontour now we’re going to be like the old Mervyn’s commercials with our nose to the window….”open, open, open.”

  92. ATX #DA2014 says:

    @archieangeltx: Ok @DavidArchie fans, let’s go: David, David, David *i am imagining we are at a virtual concert*. Bring on the Begin video! @kariontour

  93. sarahhazel says:

    DAVID!!! DAVID!!! DAVID!!!
    ( I miss doing that)

  94. Mckenzie Harris says:

    I would love a trend that includes the names of artists covered by David on the BEGIN cd. Trends with their names would attract attention from those outside the base.

    For example:

    Begin Cyndi Lauper | Begin Christina Aguilera | Begin U2 | David Archuleta Begin CD

  95. Martha says:

    McKenzie – good idea

  96. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Sarahhazel – lol, me too. Reminds me of the Demi tour opening. Loved that!

  97. ATX #DA2014 says:

    McKenzie – I second that. Tonight’s trend really needs about BEGIN. And the video..,, there is time for NA…JMO

  98. sarahhazel says:

    McKenzie–I like those! ….just curious, why can’t it be BEGIN instead of Begin?….are all caps not good for trending?

  99. sarahhazel says:

    ATX–I loved the “shadow behind the curtain” opening for David!

    Dang it, have to return to work. Now the video probably will be released! Lol spaz away!

  101. Mckenzie Harris says:

    Sarahhazel, I always use caps on BEGIN but it never seems to show up on trends. That’s the only reason I did not capitalize the title.

    Hopefully if we get these trends for these artists, they’ll retweet to their followers or at least ask why there is a trend for them with “begin”.

  102. sarahhazel says:

    Thinking they should just have put out the MV without asking us….haha….now we’re hanging in this torturous suspense again!

  103. Janel aka Nellie says:

    And then there’s David going door to door with his companion or visiting member contacts completely oblivious to our screaming and excitement. LOL

  104. OMJ! I leave for a little while and all heck breaks lose!!!. Yes Video PLEASE!!!!

  105. Also we need trend for fri. Any takers. I don’t know how. Just know how to trend LOL!

  106. sarahhazel says:

    ♪♥Marylee~#DA2014♥♪ ‏@Marylee_DA2014

    @kimak ..Kari just tweeted from his account…coming out today. Everybody Hurts according to someone in the know! lol

  107. kimk says:


  108. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–it’s weird if you think about it….he’s like a common person doing his thing over there…and a few thousand miles away peeps are spazzing big time about him LOL

  109. Martha says:

    sarahhazel – unless he’s at a train station lol

  110. sarahhazel says:

    Oh, please, have a few or some David in the video…please….don’t care if they’re just still pics….I’ll take it!

  111. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–you’re right, haha!

  112. nora says:

    Ali- i’m a little confused about the #s did he sell 4,000 copies last week and to get the 14,000 is that added to the #s from the first week? if so I thought he sold 11,000 the first week, what am I missing? 11,000 and 4,000 = 15,000. Can you explain?

  113. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    First of all Marth HaHaHaHa 😆 Pastel great post loved the video of Wait. I was there. He was amazing as usual. Can’t wait for the MV. Hope he is in it physically. Another gift from David. He’s like a Timex watch except he keeps on giving. Aww I love him. 😀

  114. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    *Martha* Sorry

  115. Hi! SGJ. Isn’t this day exciting. Can’t believe what David has done and maybe has in store for. Where did he find the time? Gosh i love him more and more each day. Don’t know if this video is just still pics but i don’t care.

  116. VaBeachArchie says:

    NO MV YET! Have to leave for work…guess I’ll miss the debut! SPAZZ AND SQUEE for me you guys! ENJOY BEGIN. and the new MV!

  117. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali.. All days have been exciting since he went away. My heart is bursting with the love we are getting from David’s heart. No one like him in this world. His girfriend is going to be one very lucky lady. He is so generous with his self.

  118. Martha says:

    Bowie’s Cigarette ‏@Jedi_Knight28
    I remember David Archuleta. Omg. He reminded me of a puppy or a hamster.

  119. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha 😆 I love puppies and hamsters

  120. Martha says:

    sgj – I love puppies..

  127. They sure know how keep you spazzing. I’m afraid to leave my laptop. I better do what i have to do now!!!

  128. Charlotte says:

    Hey all,
    Can’t wait for the video. When Kari first tweeted asking if today was a good day for it I was all, ‘um, HECK TO THE YES! We are SO ready.’ Can’t wait to see what they did with it 🙂
    Pleased again with BEGIN’s sales numbers. I think it’s paid for itself by now(or I hope it has) and David can stash the rest of his share of the revenue in the bank 🙂

  129. kimk says:

    one hour!!!!!

  130. sarahhazel says:

    “Within the hour”….so might be less! 🙂

  131. blue says:

    it’ll be interesting to see how they can make a video without david.

  132. Charlotte, sounds good to me. As long as he broke even and has a little left over.

  133. I am so curious, as to how they made this video. Exciting.

  134. ksf says:

    I don’t think David has any money worries. Lol. Although, I hope you’re right, Charlotte, and he did break even.

  138. ksf says:

    I don’t care at this point…I’ll see it when I see it.

  139. Candy says:

    I think I’ll go hang out at the “Train Station” while we wait for the video to make an appearance! ALLL ABOARDDDD!

  140. Martha says:

    ksf – same here

  141. Candy says:

    LOL re-synchronize…dont think I was at that point where I need to reset my watch…not that I wear one!

  144. Sorry Sarahhazel, you beat me to it. Have to practice copy and paste anyway.

  145. sarahhazel says:

    Hmmm….this calls for an early dinner with the family. Maybe I should start prepping now.

  146. Martha me too 5:00 or 6:00 pst

  147. ksf says:

    Candy – Don’t forget to bring your popcorn for the main feature — “When Archie’s Attack” Lol

  148. Martha says:

    Well, that was fun.

  149. Charlotte says:

    Linda and ksf, independent albums are usually pretty affordable to make(lower production costs) so if you average $10 per cd x 14,000 cds sold, I would hope 140k would cover it with some left over.
    ksf, you’re right that David doesn’t have money worries. He’s got plenty stashed away somewhere after four years of hard work. I’m just hoping for a nice profit on BEGIN to add to it.

  150. ksf says:

    Archies that is. I hate auto correct!!!

  151. Candy says:

    ksf- Im still laughing about the attack! “You can run but you can’t hide…even in Chile!”

  152. ksf says:

    Charlotte – you’re right. More $ can’t hurt. 🙂

  153. Charlotte says:

    Linda, 7-8 EST should be 4-5 PST.
    P.S. Tell your DJ who’s been playing David’s music to point his radio rays towards the IE and more specifically, San Bernardino. The stations I can get don’t play him.

  154. ksf says:

    Candy – haha! I know, right? Poor David…I ROFL just imagining his face and reaction! 😆

  155. Charlotte says:

    ksf, me, too. Poor guy can’t get a break. You have to wonder what his companion(and anyone else who was with them) thought of the whole thing. I’m sure it had to be sight.

  156. Martha says:

    sounds like a suspense thriller – “When Archies Attack at the Train Station” Eeee!

  157. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali.. I’m envious. You are getting very good at copy and paste. I have to learn that. Is it hard?? 🙄

  158. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–I’m thinking about that popcorn suggestion of yours…… 😉

  159. Candy says:

    Im surprised it hasnt happened before now…unless they move him to a ward in an underground cave…it wont be the last time either!!

  160. CindyUT says:

    Hello everyone! I’m super stoked about the new MV!!! I can’t wait!

    ksf ~ I love your title, “When Archies Attack”! That’ what will be happening soon if the MV doesn’t show up as promised! lol 🙂

  161. Candy says:

    be back after dinner the “Video Premier” 🙂

  162. sarahhazel says:

    Sounds a sci-fi B-movie from the 50’s LOL

  163. sarahhazel says:

    I agree with Candy…won’t be the last time!

  164. Charlotte, OOP! YOur right. I get confused with all these trending times. I do know that Cali is 3 hrs before EST.

  165. jeani/ut says:

    Drat of course I’m busy from 5-7.

  166. Martha says:

    If Sears handles the Premiere, we might see it at 6 – 7 Eastern Time lol

    I was shopping yesterday for this and that. I checked out DA”s CDs at all the stores I went to.
    Deseret Book– Banners and tables full of albums. Well not full, a lot had been sold. The albums were everywhere I looked and right by the counter too. They really do stand out.
    Next Wal mart. Found one left and then saw four more over on the other side of the stacks.
    Costco – a nice big pile of about 30.
    Best Buy nada.
    Office Depot nada, but I did find my pencil leads I went there for 0.7.
    Results- the majority of stores I shop at have David’s album.

  169. sarahhazel says:


  170. sarahhazel says:

    jeani/ut–very good survey work there!

  171. ksf says:

    Charlotte – I bet he was so embarrassed! 😯

    sarahhazel, Candy – you’re right…there will be a sequel…When Archies Attack 2!!

    Cindy – lol! So true! 😆

  172. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – bahahaha! @4:22!

  173. jean/UT nice job of checking our Begin Cds. Good to know who .stocks them.

  174. SGJ, my grandson taught me. No it wasn’t i was just scared to do it. Not good enough to copy and paste important stuff yet, so i let sarahhazel do that. I will DM you in two parts and show you.

    Practicing 😆

  177. Ali says:

    nora – regarding your questions from a few hours ago (lol sorry i was offline) Billboard always rounds their numbers to the nearest thousand for publication. but when they’re adding together the weekly totals, they add the exact # and then round. that can cause an album total to look like its off by a thousand high or low but really its not. so for last week they said he sold 11,000 but the exact numbers a little under that. for this week they said he sold 4,000 but obviously that number was rounded up as well because when they added the two exact numbers together, the nearest thousand was 14K. hope that makes sense!

  178. cq#DA2014 says:

    Ok, Kari, big time tease….let’s see that video, pleeeeeeeeeeease. lol!!!

  181. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali.. You are a sweetheart. My husband just came in and sorta showed me. I think I got It. Thanks so much. 😀

  182. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel.. Thanks, by time David comes home I might be able to work this dang computer. 🙄

  183. Charlotte says:

    ksf, ITA that he was probably embarrassed. I can just picture his sweet face turning bright red. Wonder how many times he apologized to his companion, and any others with them that saw the scene, for the craziness. We know how he doesn’t like causing people any kind of inconvenience, even one via the fans.

  184. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Is it 7 p.m. yet. Gee whiz I’m getting older by thre minute. I got an e in waiting in school. 😳

  185. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    apparently in typing too. *the*

  186. ksf says:

    Charlotte – I wonder what he said to the girls once he recovered? If I was his companion I probably wouldn’t have been able to resist laughing at the scene. 🙂

  187. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–An “E” in waiting? LOL….I would’ve gotten that grade too if we had that subject back then…haha!

  188. I have one more hour to wait. Think i have to eat an early dinner. Busy wiith video and helping trend. But of course video comes first.

  189. sarahhazel says:

    It’s “Volta’s” birthday today?

    RS Francisco ‏@rsfrancisco888
    Good am guys!!!i want to kiss and hug all of you!!!! Gggrrrrr.. Im sooooo happy today!! http://pic.twitter.com/BeVz8aWn

    OK, never mind that…..it turned out to be a celebration cake for the new TV series he’s in now…Princess and I.

  191. ksf says:

    Lol..trying to see if the smileys/characters on my phone would work here. Guess not!

  192. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel.. Now you tell me. I just tweeted Happy Birthday Godmother Volta! We loved you in Nandito Ako! 😳

  193. nora says:

    Ali-thanks that makes sense, now I understand, just couldn’t figure it out.
    I wish time would go by faster for that video, just finished dinner, now have to go to the drug store, but I’m afraid I’ll miss it, guess I’ll just have to take my chance and go now.

  194. Am going to take a shower and put my sunday clothes on and get ready for video. LOL!

  195. ksf says:

    Linda – Sunday clothes…LOL 🙂

  196. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    RS Francisco‏@rsfrancisco888

    “@sgjudie: @rsfrancisco888 Happy Birthday Godmother Volta! Loved you in Nandito Ako!”– OOOHHH REALLY? Thanks a lot hunny! Had fun wid NA

  197. Just kidding. I’m in my house dress. Ha Ha. This is like waiting for a premier of a movie? I did take a shower though

  198. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    RsFrancisco followed me and responded. HaHa that was so nice of him.

  199. ksf says:

    Linda – you’re cracking me up 😆

  200. CindyUT says:

    This waiting is driving me crazy! It feels like we Archies are waiting for a global premiere or something!

    Just got off the phone with my dad and we were talking about David. My dad said he believes that when David comes home and resumes is career, the sky will be the limit for him. I agreed. My dad also agreed with me when I told him I truly believe David is a legend in the making. Of course, we ALL already know that. But, it’s nice to hear it come from somebody like my dad. I always knew my was an Archie…..just a closet one, though. 🙂

    Anyway….I’m off to get some dinner and to practice a little patience while waiting for the MV…..


  201. ATX #DA2014 says:

    You guys are so funny.

    God help us if he released a full live DVD * coughAsiatour/MKOCcough*!!!!!

  202. ksf says:

    sgj – that’s cool 🙂

  203. Cindy/UT. I just love your dad. He knows good talent when he sees it.

  204. ATX #DA2014 says:

    @pabuckie: honey, I have a headache. I’m waiting for a DA video right now. lol!

    Love this!

  205. ksf says:

    See you later Cindy 🙂

  206. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali. What time is it there? It’s almost 7p.m. est here. No video yet. I’m no good at this. My name Judith means patience but I hane none waiting for David.

  207. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    *have* mistakes, mistakes sorry

  208. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hope we don’t blow some kind of circuits trying to watch the video all at the same time. We all know David is dynamite!! 😀

  209. SGJ, its 3:52 here right now. Well i”ll find out if i can still double task?

  210. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–sorry about that….LOL….wrong info on the bday!

    CindyUT–aw, that’s so sweet of your Archie dad to say that!

  211. ATX #DA2014 says:

    While we wait, the other night I was listening / watching David videos on my laptop. Hubby, who has NEVER asked me anything about David said, “No bicycle videos?” Bahhhhh! We busted out laughing. Guess he was paying attention at SLC. Then we preceded to have a great conversation about what all David had done since the SLC concert and how he has done this mission like the other members. He said, “wow that is really impressive. Good for him.”

    Wonders never cease to amaze me.

  212. sarahhazel says:

    ATX–very nice hubby story there!

  213. Thats great ATX.
    Where will this video be premiered first?

  214. Virtue #2014 says:

    Where are you guys waiting for the video? Official site?

  215. It’s time. Wheres the video?

  216. Sorry forgot, they said between 7 and 8

  217. Virtue #2014 says:


  218. CindyUT says:

    Okay, I’m back. When they said between 7-8, wasn’t that eastern time? If so, that would make between 5-6 Utah (mountain) time. It is currenly 5:05 in Utah right now.

  219. Charlotte says:

    ksf, ITA about David’s companion probably getting a chuckle out of the incident, though I’m sure he chuckled discreetly so as not to embarrass David even further. I would’ve loved to be a bilingual fly on the wall to see David’s reaction 😉

    And, on the burning topic of the moment, come on Deseret it’s past 7 eastern time, LoL 🙂

  220. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel RSFrancisco responded to me see me at 5:36 P.M. Don’t be sorry 😆

    ATX Nice story. It’s nice hearing about David. David is always doing something pleasant and wholesome. Can’t help but admire the young man.

  221. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Charlotte.. HaHa maybe David’s companion thought it was cool. Bet he’ll never experience that in his whole life again. 😎

  222. ray says:

    waiting with crash cart lol

  223. I hear lightning here. OH! LORD please don’t let electricity go out. Judie, if you don’t see me in trend it will be because of storm.

  224. CindyUT says:

    So, while we wait, can somebody get me up to speed about David and his companion? What thing happened that made his companion think is cool? I think I might know the story already. However, I want to make sure it’s the same story I heard.

  225. Martha says:




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

    CindyUT, We’re not suppose to talk about it in the comments, the info was within a link to a Missionary blog. We can only supply links in the comments, not discuss their content.

    Thoughts? RT @davidarchie: Here is the official music video of “Everybody Hurts” off of David’s new album BEGIN. http://youtu.be/-UrNy_YtMUo

  236. ksf says:

    What did everyone think?

  237. Charlotte says:

    SGJ, very true. David is a one-in-a-million missionary. I’m just hoping he’s being loved and protected as such. He seems happy from what we’ve seen, so I’d assume so.

  238. CindyUT says:

    Umm…..still need to digest what I just saw….to take it all in…..to ponder over the symbolism…. What did YOU think, ksf???

  239. CindyUT says:

    Oh, I must admit I got a little teary eyed watching the MV…..

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


  241. sarahhazel says:

    OMJOMJ….that made me teary…..but I LOVE IT. Now I can breathe…..then I’ll watch it again.

  242. ksf says:

    Cindy – I don’t know…it fit the song. All about letting go.

  243. Reine says:

    I think it is about letting go. It is sad but a the same time it gives hope for a great future. My opinion.

  244. Charlotte says:

    Beautiful, beautiful video 🙂 Another message of hope and love from our earth angel 🙂

  245. sarahhazel says:

    I kinda knew David’s shots were gonna be from the studio due to time constraints….was just curious to see what story the other characters have.
    So, there’s the scooter boy who tweeted! LOL

  246. Charlotte says:

    With the symbolism, he might be saying to us ‘I know you’re hurting over me being away. I am, too, but I will be back with you soon’. We just have to let go for a little while and we’ll have him back with us.

  247. applegreen says:

    Delurking.. I cried all the way from start to finish. Wish there were more shots on him. Love watchng him in the studio.Anyway , I thought that video was a nice one showing different aspects of losing / missng / longing someone….

  248. sarahhazel says:

    The woman soldier’s part touched me the most…that one’s holding on to a hope she’ll be reunited with loved ones again.

  249. pickles says:

    wowwwwwww this video is so good! Thank you so much to David and the amazing team he has!

  250. Candy says:

    WOW!!! That was FANTASTIC!! It was one of my top songs on the cd and that just about cemented it as my fav!!! HIS VOCALS *Where are are the danged tissues*
    Love the tender side of the video, and it all had a happening ending.

  251. ksf says:

    I wonder why they chose to make a vid for EH? Are there more to come?

  252. Martha says:

    Reine – I agree, sometimes it hurts to let go, but don’t give up hope.

  253. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Sniff, sniff, sniff The voice , the soldier, the whole video fantastic. Seeing David singing it gave me the chills. He has the purest voice in the whole wide world. P.S. I loved it. 🙂

    OK people, was that beautiful or what??? I’m stunned!!! Good job David and Kurt and thanks goes to Kari and Deseret Book too. The theme of it was perfect.

  259. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–thinking the same….who knows….one video for each song….that means we have 9 more….maybe one a month….LET’S KEEP ON DREAMING!!! 🙂

  260. CindyUT says:

    Charlotte, I love your interpretation!

  261. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali.. Are you okay?? Every time I hear David sing it’s like I just discovered the most beautiful voice in the entire universe. He feels, emotes and controls every word and note. SIGH incredible.

    applegreen – I agree. The best part for me was seeing him in the studio. The scenarios were nice and I thought the soldier scenario was the best one. The others were nice but not really what I would have chosen. But it’s awesome that David went to the lengths he did — not only to make sure we had music but vids as well. Smart move!

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

    Hey Candy! I LOVE Broken, EH, Pride, DGU & Beautiful, my top 5, the rest are a very close second. The whole EH song is fantastic, but I constantly listen to that ‘On” towards the end when its at one note, then goes up a note, with in the same note. Gosh, sorry, dont know how to explain what I mean,lol. Ummm, singing the words Hold On & the word on is sung at two different keys within the same word. Oh my heck, I dont know 🙄 😆 I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this video!

  264. Candy says:

    Out of hopelessness, despair… comes a message of HOPE!

  268. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I’m thinking this might have a million views very quickly

  269. nora says:

    Just Love that video, it is so David, made me so teary. So true to what is going on in the real world, something everybody can relate to. Don’t give up from the hurt, because there is so much more to life, if we have faith and strength and love we can endure, that is what the video means to me. Life is worth it all in the end. Just Love David and hope that he is happy and stays safe, everything will be so good for us when he returns.

    Beth agree LOVE LOVE> that Video!!!

  270. Candy says:

    To me the message of the video is more what they wanted to convey, rather then dazzle with pyro techno gimmicks, what they wanted to convey comes across loud and clear.

  271. sarahhazel says:

    David Archuleta debuts music video off #3-peaking Internet Album “Begin.”. #EverybodyHurts http://youtu.be/-UrNy_YtMUo

  272. JayRay says:

    What a great video. Love it. Whether the message was for us, his family, his friends or most likely all of the above, he made it clear why he chose this song. Going back to watch again and again…

  273. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    I repeat. We are the luckiest fans in the world!!!

  274. ksf says:

    The video does a good job of conveying exactly what the song is saying…at least
    its what I pictured.

  275. CindyUT says:

    Now that I have watched the MV again, the message is finally sinking in……so much that I can’t watch it again because I know I’ll start bawling.

    I love how David communicates to us through song. He does it in such a beautiful and powerful way. There is always meaning behind it and they are never empty words.

    I am definitely feeling David’s heart right now. I hope he is feeling our’s, too.

  276. SGJ, i’m fine. Wiping the tears off. A box of tissues next to me. I thought it was beautiful.
    Am reading the buzz and going to comment on all of them before trending. You can bet this lady is going to watch this video, over and over again.

  277. ksf says:

    I think it was a general message of hope for any and everyone.

  278. Candy says:

    I JUST LOVE The more mature vocals on BEGIN. SO done with the pop bubblegum stuff that is out there now. #justinwho

  279. A Fan says:

    Candy! @7:10 I totally agree with you. Very well stated. The video is perfect and the voice is amazing.

  280. Charlotte says:

    CindyUT, thank you 🙂

    Nora, love your interpretation. That message resonates with me because I was in a hard place when David came into my life. Since then, he continues to bring me hope and happiness and keeps me going on the bad days.
    I agree with you, too, that things will be amazing when he comes home. Bring on the Welcome Home party 🙂

    Beth, might want to mention to the boys that we’re gonna need an EH wing at the Archuhospital now, LoL.

  281. angelbymyside says:

    Love how the boyfriend and girlfriend said a little prayer before she left for college.

  282. sarahhazel says:

    Just as I expected–a simple but powerful video from David….don’t need special effects or cinematography or fancy settings….the music, his image and the message is more than enough.
    I’m very happy. 🙂

  283. bychance says:

    Oh he is beautiful when he sings!!!!!!!

  284. CindyUT says:

    Oh, and I forgot to mention how good David looked. He looks so grown up…..and handsome, too.

  285. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–I started grabbing the tissue box when I saw the 1st 2 seconds of the soldier part.

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

    nora 😀

    Candy, I agree. What a bonus, listen to the song over & over again, plus a wonderful, heartfelt video. I’ve been down a little lately, but this video has picked me right up 😀 We all go through different degrees of hurt, the pain of letting go in different situations & losses of all kinds, but, we put one foot in front of the other & carry on best we can.

  287. sarahhazel says:

    Cindy–yes, looked very mature and of course, handsome….love the way he kinda vowed his head at the end of the song….so glad they put him again at the end part.

  288. pickles says:

    the story that touch me the most was the mom in the war because the little boy reminded me of my brother

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

    Charlotte, Excellent idea. The Archuhospital is going to have more wings than The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd combined 😆 The Broken Wing, now the EH Wing 😀

    by chance, You can say that again 😀

    Love everyones comments 😀

  290. Candy says:

    The message-that not matter where you are, what your situation is…there is
    HOPE. Everybody hurts at some point in their life…

  291. pickles says:

    could the mom in the war be a family member of David side? (like from Lupe’s side)

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

    Hey pickles! It was so sweet how the little boy looked at his mom at the end of the video as she was holding him, with the dad there. What a sweet, little face he has. Awwwe, your brother.

  293. pickles says:

    Beth yes it was really sweet especially when the little boy put his little hand on his mom face.My brother is the same age and has the same color skin and hair that why he reminds me oh him.

  294. nora says:

    Beth- I agree we all go through all kinds of losses and hurts sometime life is not easy, I lost a dear sister just a year and a half older than I, to cancer, she was such a good friend, and I miss her, David and his music has helped me to have faith, his music is so soothing, and I agree you do go on and i agree you do put one foot in front of the other and continue, even though you hurt, life is so worth living, I count all the other blessings in my life. Can’t wait for 2014 !!!! Thank you so much David for the person you are. Glad to be a fan!!!

  295. ksf says:

    Sure hope Rainbow is next. Ready for something lighthearted and…just fun!

  296. Charlotte says:

    Beth, yup and pretty soon the Rainbow wing(whenever the folks in PH decide to share that one).

    bychance, ITA completely. His beauty shines like the sun when he’s feeling the spirit in a song.

    Pickles, I remember a tweet a couple years ago when David visited, I think, Camp Pendleton(I have always wondered hat the reason for that trip was). He mentioned a cousin being in the Marines. We all know he has too many cousins to ever count, so you never know.

  297. angelbymyside says:

    Can’t decide which storyline I like best in the movie video…..they are all so good.

  298. CindyUT says:

    My heart is so welled up with emotion right now. How did we ever get so lucky to be fans of such a phenomenal human being?

    I have thought a lot about why there are so many people out there who “gets” David, yet there are so many who don’t. Why do WE “get” him? Why can’t the other’s see what we do? I think I might have figured it out.

    I believe that David didn’t just walk into all our lives by chance and that we all just coincidently became his fans as a result. I believe that David was destined to walk into all of our lives for a reason. He was destined to touch all of our lives in some form or manner. He was destined to be our inspiration on so many different levels. I also believe that WE were destined to be David’s fans and to share and take part in his musical journey. I just simple believe this whole journey has a purpose. It was destined. David was chosen for us and we were chosen for him. How did WE get so lucky to be the chosen one’s?

    Okay…..getting a little to mushy here…..

  299. angelbymyside says:

    *sniff* Caption on music video! *sniff*

    David performs the REM classic “Everybody Hurts” with an orchestra which includes producer Kurt Bestor. The shots of David were recorded in a studio the day before he left on his mission.

    “I hope you know that I never wanted to leave you guys without music, and will continue when I get back.” – David Archuleta

  300. lessha says:

    Hi everyone! Just watched the video, now I’m totally bawling. Love his amazing voice with such touching stories. He is so wonderful to leave us with all this wonderful music while he is gone. We are such lucky fans.

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

    nora, I’m so sorry you lost your sister, may I ask when? I just lost my Grandma a week ago today, still not real to me, but yet I know it is. David sure brings alot of hope, love & strength to all of our lives.

    pickles, yeah, thats the scene I was talking about, so sweet. Your brother sounds like a little cutie pie 😀

    Charlotte, Yup, the plans for the Rainbow Wing are underway, construction starts in two days 😀

  302. GOSH! Cindy/UT now you really got to me, that was very beautiful. And i believe that what you said is true. we needed David, David needed us and all of his fans needed each other for this journey that we are taking with him. Other wise why would we wait for him.

  303. Candy says:

    SIGHHHHHH I am so grateful for all the music David left for us…I cant imagine how different the two years would have been without it!

  304. CindyUT says:

    Thank you, Linda.

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

    abms, Now you’ve gone & done it, didnt see that comment from David (insert, crying, bawling, smiling combination face here)

  306. Charlotte says:

    CindyUT, beautifully said. ITA completely. David was indeed destined to come to us as are all the gifts we receive from God. In this case we have the extraordinary luck of being granted the gift of an angel; to love and cherish and protect and to be inspired and moved by. It isn’t just luck that WE were the ones chosen for this. We were blessed with this gift of fate and it’s a gift I, for one, will never take for granted.

    ABMS, I’m sniffling right along with you. Ohhhh, I wish he was here so I could scoop him up in a huge bear hug.

  307. Candy says:

    Oh I missed that comment …thanks ABMS for bringing it here.

  308. nora says:

    Beth-I lost my sister about 2 years ago, she was sick for about a year, it was a very difficult time, going thru chemo, even though time passes, you never forget there is a special place in my heart for her. I agree David does bring faith, hope and love into our lives. This video starts out sad, but it has such a great message, to just hang on and it will all be worth it in the end.. I really feel better just watching and listening to his Voice.

  309. CindyUT says:

    Thank you, Charlotte.

  310. Charlotte says:

    Beth, that’s great about the Rainbow wing. It’ll be all ready to go when Rainbow gets here 🙂

  311. angelbymyside says:

    Got all choked up when I read that caption on the video!! I MISS HIM!! Is it 2014 yet?

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

    nora, I’m so sorry your sister had to go through that & for you & your family’s loss. Its amazing how much love & memories one’s heart can hold 😀

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

    Charlotte 😀

    abms, me too, kinda feel like 😀 🙁 😀 🙁 😀 🙁

  314. Candy says:

    When I look at David sitting in the studio so deeply and emotionally committed to the message and the music…and to think he must have had so much on his mind leaving the next day…to sing like that is truly a gift.

  315. nora says:

    abs-I didn’t see that caption on the video, where on the video was it?

  316. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    CindyUT, Linda And Charlotte. Well said. I feel the same way. From the moment I saw him on AI and he won, knowing thery were touring, I knew I had to see him in person and that once was never enough. I am always in a good place wherever David is seen or heard. P.S. Another observation I had when seeing him at meet & greets and at the concerts themselves, David seems to be in a good place because we are there for him. He knows we love him.

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

    Candy, He was probably hurting a bit himself when singing it, thinking about his family & friends, fans too. Plus, the not knowing, what the next two years will bring, what experiences he will have, living in a foreign country for two years, its alot to think about, worry about, some apprehension, some doubts, normal, part of life, but difficult just the same.

  318. angelbymyside says:

    Has this been posted? “Yes, everything does hurt….” 😆


  319. Candy says:

    Beth-So true, I would have been an emotional basket case if I was in his shoes…Heck, I was a wreck and I wasnt even the one leaving!

  320. angelbymyside says:

    nora ~ it is below the video in the description

  321. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Thank God for David and FOD…….

    Bravo Cindy/UT

    I also think David is telling us he is hurting too, missing everyone, family, friends, fans. It is probably worse on him, since we have each other. But, it WILL BE OK!

  322. nora says:

    I think we all should go to I tunes and download just Everybody Hurts . Maybe just a little thank you David.

    abs I saw where the message was from David under the video. Thanks

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

    Candy, yeah, when you think of the shape we’re all in after he left, the beautiful music, now the video, I cant imagine how difficult it was for him to go. He’s a very strong, yet gentle man, pretty proud to be a fan, thats for sure 😀

    Hey ATX! I agree.

  324. Charlotte says:

    SGJ, I know what you mean about once never being enough when it comes to David’s concerts. I’ve been to four now and I’m saving like mad for the next one when he comes home.
    Beth, I’ll bet he was apprehensive and hurting when he was thinking about leaving. That is an extremely hard choice to make and knowing he’d be away from the people he loves most with little contact had to be killing him. He’s strong(both in his emotions and his faith) and a fighter, though, so I know he’s making the best of things and learning and growing every day.

  325. josie says:

    Shoot, I can’t even talk right now.

  326. Martha says:

    “I hope you know that I never wanted to leave you guys without music, and will continue when I get back.” – David Archuleta

  327. CindyUT says:

    Thanks, ATX!

  328. Amanda Jane says:

    Evenin’ all!

    Everybody Hurts hits me hard everytime I listen so I’m sitting here just watching the vid and it’s like OMG. Wowsers. What a song; what an album!

  329. josie says:

    10 minutes later….Nope. Still can’t talk. lol.

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

    Charlotte, as difficult as it was for David to make the decision to go, then leave, I think it will do him a world of good. I think he needs the time away to have real life experiences, make his own decisions, not that he doesnt now, I just mean, to be on his own, to figure out life, basically, to totally depend on himself. He’s very strong, resiliant, capable, I think this time away will help him realize it, or be more sure of it.

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

    Hey AmandaJane! Ummm, Yup 😀

    Awwwe Josie!

  332. ksf says:

    If this is how fans are reacting I wonder what those close to him, his family and friends, are feeling/felt after seeing the video?

  333. josie says:

    ksf~ Not helpin’. lol.

  334. ksf says:

    Sorry…can’t help but wonder. After all, they actually know him, lol.

  335. By chance says:

    Josie…I’m with you. Just basking in, and agreeing with everyone’s lovely comments.

  336. Martha says:

    David Archuleta AFS‏@FanScene

    @theJed, Thanks for the lovely @DavidArchie “Everybody Hurts” vid. Well done, sir.

  337. ksf says:

    Okay…an emotional night it seems. Lol. Goodnight. 🙂

  338. CindyUT says:

    Goodnight, ksf!

  339. sarahhazel says:

    I’m in Twitter jail. 🙁

  340. ksf says:

    Goodnight Cindy 🙂

  341. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    WOW…JUST WOW!!!! What a heart wrenching video…..And to think David recorded this the day before he left on his Mission…Leaving his family, friends, fans and everything he was comfortable with…….He must have been hurting himself when he was singing this in the recording studio…I am in awe of Mr. David Archuleta….. I miss him so so much…..Miss Vicki

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Going to watch the vid a few more times,
    before turning in. I LOVE that video 😀

  345. kmb says:

    I just started my last semester of undergrad, and it’s going to be BUSY, so what a nice reprieve the music vid is. I LOVE IT!!! It’s sad but hopeful at the same time. The visuals add even more emotion to David’s vocals, which I didn’t think was possible but it happened. WOW!!!!! Thank you David and everyone on Team Archuleta!

    Sorry to comment and run but I need my rest. I won’t be around here much for a few months but please know that I love FOD and I will come back 🙂

  346. sarahhazel says:

    Can’t go back to trending on Twitter. WHAT A DAY…AND NIGHT.

  347. Anne-Marie says:

    Evening everyone! Just wanted to stop by and say how much I love the Everybody Hurts video!! Very, very well done and I love how the 3 story lines depict courage, faith and hope. What a great message! The story line with the mom at war I think was my favorite. And what a treat to see him singing in the recording studio..and to see what he was feeling as he sang that song. It’s only been 5 months and he has left us so many beautiful gifts. 🙂

  348. Charlotte says:

    Beth, your comment at 8:32, I completely agree. It will do him a world of good. It’s the same with kids going off to college or moving out on their own for the first time. He needs that experience to be ready for the next phase life will take him to when he comes home. He’ll be ready to maybe have his own place and maybe start looking more for that special someone.
    Not to mention, it’ll do his music a world of good, too. He’ll mature so much as a song writer it might seem scary at first. But it’ll be so worth it when we see him with that Grammy in his hand 🙂
    Gonna pack it in for now, but I will be watching that video plenty more tomorrow. G’night all 🙂

  349. lct#DA2014 says:

    Man, I get up to get a drink a water and I find ANOTHER David video. Man, brought tears to my eyes – can’t get back to sleep now! AND trending for NA DVD??? Busy David world out there! What an incredible work ethic he has…..

  350. Charlotte says:

    P.S. kmb, congrats on your last semester. Enjoy it and your graduation to the hilt. It’s an experience you’ll always remember 🙂

  351. Russ says:

    WOW! WOW! WOW!
    That’s about all I can say to express how I feel about that video. WOW!

  352. ATX #DA2014 says:

    A comment under the video: (I wonder how many people have this same story)

    “When David was on American Idol and the next few years following, I was obsessed. I must admit, the last year or so I stoped and didnt really listen to his music too much anymore. I seriously had no idea he came out with this new album. I came across this video, and the whole time I was watching I was crying. I have been going through a tough time, and David did it once again, he helped me though something. I cant thank him enough, and I cant believe I ever stopped listening to him.<3"

  353. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Love you gals and gents. Goodnight to you all. Sweet dreams. see you tomorrow

  354. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    kmb….Congrats on your last semester of college….where do you go to school???? And Charlotte, I agree this spiritual break will do him a world of good. He will be maturing and ready to come back to knock everyone’s socks off with his new music, get his own digs and look for “his kind of perfect”…..Miss Vicki

  355. VaBeachArchie says:

    Home from work and FINALLY got to see the Everybody Hurts video! What can I say that will do justice to David’s vocals. the fabulous video and Kurt Bestor’s arramgements? SPEECHLESS!

    Going back and read the comments and see what I’ve missed!

  356. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:


  357. nora says:

    goodnight everybody, what an emotional night,but love this video

  359. josie says:

    Is there a good way to spread the word about the MV?

  360. VaBeachArchie says:

    Waving back at ya Miss Vicki! Sweet Dreams ! What a SPECIAL young man and artist David Archuleta is…and how LUCKY we are to be his fans! Hugs to all! NITE!

  361. ray says:

    cindyut,well said ,i have said that from the begeining,because of how david came into my life,yes we are the chosen ones,and i love it

  362. Candy says:

    Ray/Cindy-Ive been saying it since the first day I arrived here at FOD, we arent here by chance…its all part of the “Masterplan.” We’re all here for a reason, whether its a personal something we needed, or perhaps to be a promoter of Davids gift…its a good feeling!

  363. josie says:

    “Don’t throoooow your haaaaaand.” omg. I can’t stop replaying 2:12-2:32.

  364. Candy says:

    I love the EH video…it has taken my missing David to a new level. 19 months seems like an eternity till we will hear that voice and see that smile again…live! So grateful for the gifts of love he has given each of us…

  365. By chance says:

    Going to sleep under the special glow of David Archuleta tonight. What a gift to be his fan. The comments about how we came to be here are exactly how I have felt but could never express so beautifully. Thanks, Cindyut, Charlotte, Linda, ray, Candy and whoever else said what I couldn’t tonight. Felling very blessed!

    Josie – 2:12-2:32-……..I hear ya!!!!!!

  366. neneng says:

    I didn’t like David at the beginning . I like everyone except David. I didn’t imagine I was gonna be his biggest fan after he sang imagine. David change my life in so many ways. I will always be grateful I become a fan.

  367. By chance says:

    …….and no, it is not by chance that I am here. Sure of it!

  368. josie says:

    neneng~ You didn’t like David in the beginning? That’s too funny. I’ve liked him since he was, like, 11. lol. That’s cool that you’ve become his biggest fan. 🙂 Candy~ If I think about how much time is left, I’ll go nuts. But my life is super busy right now, so this downtime is just what I need. I’m hoping it gets less busy in..19 months.

  369. Candy says:

    joise-Im not sitting around crying in my diet coke over his being gone…but every now and then, like tonight, Im reminded just how much he has brought into my life…the music, his character, the people Ive met along the way here or in person…my cup runneth over.

  370. josie says:

    Candy~ 🙂 That makes sense. Have a good rest of the night.

  371. Been forever since I have posted. Crazy busy life lately, but I am so happy to get on tonight and watch the beautiful music video. Even the hard hearted will be touched by this! The voice, the message, simply the best! Be proud David cause you left us a very special gift with this one….. Goodnight all.

  372. P.S. the little boy looks just like my grandson, Mathew, who is in Singapore right now, and I miss him! More tears….

  373. Jhen says:

    Love the video of Everybody hurts, heartfelt. Just to see David face on the video is make me so happy.

  374. OoO says:

    I love this video a lot and I see the points of stories here too. But my only true story in here is what u read on that CAPTIONS that David’s feeling for his fans is real love comparing to the stories that was made up for his MV. His captions got me teary eyes more than MV itselfs. Thank you David.

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

    New Thread

    New Thread, see ya all there later today, have a great day 😀

  376. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD! Was late to the party last night because of work..but did get to do a little trending! But FIRST came my look at the Everybody Hurts Video! Itis far more then I ever expected…from START to FINISH it is AMAZING! Seeing David in the studio singing his heart out brought me to tears…and then every scenerio tugged at my heart! LOVED EVERYTHING! To David and everyone involved in bringing this to your fans…THANK YOU!
