 Constitution Fair – Gilbert AZ

It’s been almost a year since that warm September night in Gilbert, AZ when ArchuFriends gathered for a patriotic celebration of the US Constitution.  The anniversary of the fair is actually September 17th,  but  we started partying several days before!  One of the most amazing memories from this event happened the night before – David was doing an unannounced sound check and we were just returning from picking up a friend from the airport when we just happened upon the location!

We were at a stoplight and we could hear David singing!  We looked across a dark field and there was the stage, dimly lit, but we could definitely tell it was David singing.  His voice carried clear and pure across the balmy night and we quickly found a parking spot and made our way through the grassy field in the dark under a starry night sky.  Other fans had already gathered and we all stood quietly, mesmerized as David sang several songs from his set.  It was one of those perfect, unplanned moments when the stars align and luck is on your side – when you can stand in darkness on a grassy field, surrounded by friends under a starry September sky and the voice of an angel fills the air with song.

I’ll post the a cappella National Anthem vid that set the patriotic tone for the concert.  We’ll post more vids on September 17th to celebrate the one year anniversary!

Vids from the Vault

I love looking at David vids from the past – it’s fun to see how much he’s matured and changed over the past four years – but some things never change!  Thanks to ATX from comments for posting links to these three vids posted by JRforDA.  These vids are a 3-part interview that David did with SomethingPitchy to promote Chords of Strength – that Gabby is definitely a FANGIRL!  I can listen to David talk forever, so this is over 42 minutes of amazingness that I call:

Pics & GIFs

Shelley dug into her photo treasure trove and posted some pics from Wichita and New Albany.  Love the grainy effect on the Wichita pics, and in New Albany David was doing that summer radio tour and he had that young band that we only saw for that one summer.  Shelley said she wanted to fix David’s sleeves haha!  Oh the lead pic photoedit by hannedenmark also snuck in there!

  1. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Happy Saturday Morning Kalei. The fan videos were teriffic. Nice pictures, some I haven’t seen before. Seems like yesterday that the Stadium of Fire took place. I bought a ticket for $128.00 in the front row and then couldn’t make the trip. I donated my ticket to someone who could go from Utah. She sent me pictures of David from the event. Really wished I could have gone. Brad Paisley was there that day too. He said David is the nicest guy . Aww, we know that!! 🙂

  2. sarahhazel says:

    Happy 171st day!!! Thanks for the great post, Kalei!!!
    Wish I could join the NorCal Archies….waaahhh!
    Awesome gifs and fan vids!
    Got stuck watching the SP interview, all 4 parts…haha…..Gabby’s a total fangirl!
    LOL…she even showed him the classic Hush Cats tweet & he was embarassed….and was really cuuuuuuuute! Love it!

  3. sarahhazel says:

    A fan made a cute moments vid on the SP interview…..all still pics. 🙂

  4. sarahhazel says:

    I got kinda sad when he said he’s gonna do a TOSOD tour….and we know it didn’t happen….dang. 🙁

  5. sarahhazel says:

    Hello, supergrandjudie!

  6. sarahhazel says:

    Bringing this over from early this morning…..

    September 15, 2012 at 7:26 am

    more from SAM!!! 🙂

    Sam Guevara ϟ ‏@SamLouiseG
    @kimak plenty where that came from http://ohnopurple.tumblr.com/post/31572836007/jonya-damine-stare-a-thon … lol

  7. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–if you’re lurking….on your DWTS question from last night….I don’t know the answer….it’s kinda hard to explain….just feel like it’s not a good fit for him….just my feelings….LOL….I guess that didn’t answer much. 😕

  8. kimk says:

    Kalei holy macaroni.. fabulous post!!! thank you!


    Sam Guevara ϟ ‏@SamLouiseG
    That beautiful moment when @DavidArchie gets lost in the song

  9. kimk says:


    Weiyan haha. ‏@weiyannn
    @itsEllieeexD omg this is pretty hot too

    lol love the fans.. they are gif happy.. makes me happy too!

  10. sarahhazel says:

    Forgot to say…..that “smirk-seen-around-the-world” (postcard) pic up top is out-of-this-world GORGEOUS. 🙂

  11. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–beautiful BYU concert gif by Sam!…..BTW, kinda cool to hear your tweet mentioned in that old SP interview!

  12. sarahhazel says:

    Thank goodness for these wonderful gifs….they keep us amused us during this long wait time. LOL

  13. Grannycrush says:

    Thanks, Kalei, for another great post.
    Love the video just posted of stills from David’s interview. He is so expressive.
    I just listened to the Drummer Boy from Dapo’s Christmas album. I just love that deep raspy voice of David’s. He is just a musical genius! Whoever suggested that he sing it in that low voice most of the way through was my hero.

  14. kimk says:

    sarahhazel darn tootin it is.. soon as I saw those postcards knew I had to order them!!


    BEGIN Bonus Postcards CD is #1 at WOW_HD WEEKLY TOP 100!!!!! 😀


  15. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–that’s fabulous!….hope it sells and sells and sells and sells…..haha!

  16. kimk says:

    umm.. lol think the smirk will sell them very well indeed!

  17. sarahhazel says:

    Grannycrush–David’s lower register is a killer. 😮

  18. tami lyn says:

    good morning everyone 🙂 sarah-i get what u mean kinda cuz he’s still kinda shy but if u watched that AOL interview, like most of his other interviews, he can’t sit still lol! his arms are always moving, his chair is going back and forth, he’s a natural spazz. think inside of him is a dancer lol! we know he has the moves, we’ve seen it. DWTS would be out of his comfort zone most definitely but i think once he gets past his inate shyness he would be amazing! those few vids where he is dancing with his mom, it’s obviously how well he dances and moves. like he said in that interview when he was doing zero gravity at first he felt like an idiot moving around on stage but by the end of tour he was jumping around on stage like a rockstar! lol 🙂

  19. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn- HaHa He didn’t sit still for a moment. About the DWTS, he would probably be good at it but I can’t picture him dancing with the scantily clad lady dancers and holding them in those dance positions. I ‘d prefer him singing on DWTS. Wish that would happen. We don’t even know if it will still be on when David returns. A lot of changes will have taken place by the time he gets home.

  20. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hello sarahhazel glad to see you this morning. I meant to say Hi to nora last night.

  21. tami lyn says:

    sgj~ true, alot could happen before david gets back! good and bad. hopeDWTs will still be on then as it is one of their highest rated shows but yeah who knows and david did say maybe! lol having to dance with the “scantily clad”lol, would force david over his fear of girls maybe! 🙂

  22. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn- Don’t know. Those costumes don’t leave much to the imagination. 😆 Donny Osmond did very good . He won besides. I follow Apolo Anton Ohno on twitter now. I’m looking forward to seeing him in a couple of weeks. Besides being adorable, he has a great smile. Nice guy and he’s going to be dancing with Karina. Will need a fire extinguisher by the T.V. set. 🙄

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

    Hello Everyone! Just stopping by to wish everyone a Happy Saturday!!! Have a busy day ahead, so I better get to it. TTYL 😀

    Oh, David & DWTS, Would LOVE for him to sing on it, but I think he would be a fabulous contestant & I also think he would love doing it. OK, bye!

  24. tami lyn says:

    sgj~ yes LOL! to all that 🙂

  25. tami lyn says:

    hi & bye beth! 🙂

  26. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Was voting on Wise Radio. David’s Broken is leading. He had 85 when I left. Now if everyone here put in a couple of votes we could be way ahead. Every little bit helps. Go give David a hug, please. 🙂

  27. breanne says:

    Great post as usual Kalei!! Love David’s beautiful eyes in that top picture! WOW!!

    Broken was #2 again on @WISE_RADIO’s Music Challenge. If we can get it to #1 for 2 more weeks (it has already been #1 for 1 week) it will be retired to their #1 vault & I won’t bug everyone to vote. LOL!! That other group (Poet’s of the Fall) is now off their poll so we should be able to do that. Let’s VOTE!!!!
    facebook.com/pages/Wise-Radio/181618691893576?sk=app_208195102528120 …

    Vote 1 song hourly for Everybody Hurts (still #1), Broken (#3) & I’ll Never Go (#27) on Chart Central:

  28. Grace says:

    Morning FOD faithfuls!!

    Kalei, great post as usual!! The top leading picture is lethal!! Wowza!!
    VaBeach, I wish I were in your shoes!! Sounds great to spend a day at the beautiful beach!!
    kimk, went to my Walmart and didn’t see the CD. Someone must have purchased the last one I relocated at the Hot Music shelf because I looked for it everywhere, but couldn’t find it. I will order it from WOWHD and keep the postcards and give away the CD. Thanks for the link to WOWHD.

  29. kimk says:

    so are we ready for that Rainbow yet!!?

    Ms.Gomes ‏@NaNaiGomZie
    Is it just me or does all of David Archuleta’s music sound like it cud be played as death announcement music or at a funeral?

  30. kimk says:

    Grace didn’t know it was #1 there… sure was mighty nice to see!!

  31. lct#DA2014 says:

    Question: Does anyone know where David ranked in the Forbes list for AI contestants’ earnings the year he did Nandito Ako and albums? While I vote, I’ve been searching and haven’t found anything…

  32. FABULOUS post Kalei! Thanks so much to all for the vids, gifs, pics and info….such FUN to see and remember all the AMAZING things David has done! One SPECIAL talent and person!

    Well time to hit the road for the NEXT family adventure! Just came home to change clothes…going to the beach! And it’s GORGEOUS! Hope to have a chance to check in later! HAVE A GREAT DAY! 🙂

  33. kimk says:

    Dancing David… yoo hoo come out wherever you are!!!!?!!


  34. tami lyn says:

    thanks kim! that was awesome lol

  35. Good Morning everyone. My company just left. My brothers and i had a great time last night and this morning. Talking about old times, my parents grandparents and a lot of laughs. Haven’t done that in a long time.
    Kalei, i love the top picture. Oh my! those eyes and smirky smile. Love it. Also all the tumblers and gifs, i love them.

  36. kimk says:

    tamilyn wonder if there really is a Rainbow mv.. and he really is dancing in it? or a new version of Rainbow for that matter. ha I crave the answers to these questions!!!

  37. lct#DA2014 says:

    I guess they retired the song that was #1 for 3 weeks in a row, so David should have an easier time – if we vote on that wise poll

  38. Kimk, i hope there is a Rainbow MV. They know how excited we are to see it. Why would they leave us hanging like that. It would be a shame to shelve that video of David dancing. I’m ready for something a little jazzy from David. We know he can do it and that he can move when he feels the song. But i want the world to see it.

  39. kimk says:

    Linda agree with all you have said.. can’t wait again to dance to his music. maybe another Zero Gravity type song??!!! 🙂

  40. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali- Glad to see you had a nice time with your brother. Angel is on her way here but hasn’t arrived yet. I didn’t trend this morning. I got up and fell back to sleep. Guess I was tired. Now I’m going back to give David some more hugs on Wise Radio. BBL

  41. nora says:

    sgj-thanks for the hi. Just voted on Wise poll brought it up to 201. we really lost to the poets by a large amount, It got to be an all day affair, never could keep up, and I was away for a few days, so I couldn’t help out, we should be able to do something now. Great post today Kalei, I missed reading comments while away, but got caught up last night. While I was away in Maine, I did see the Apple commercial on the news, was so excited to see David’s Begin cd on it. It was great. Glad to be back.

    Hi to all!!!

  42. SGJ, i just came from wise, put in some votes. will keep voting through the day.
    I trended just a little, had company still, but it must of not trended becauses they are trending it again tonight 7:00pm Utah time. same trend “Latin Archies Love BEGIN”
    Please say hi to Angelique for me.

  43. sandritangel #DA2014 ‏@sandritangel

    Stop tweeting.. Tonight at 7.00 pm Utah time we will trend Latin Archies Love BEGIN

  44. MaggieFOD says:

    Good morning everyone! There is not much better than a David Archuleta interview while he is sitting in a swivel chair! Upon David’s return from his mission, wonder if we can convince Kari that the perfect setting for his first return vlog is David in a swivel chair! Hope everyone has a great day!

  45. cq#DA2014 says:

    Winner,winner chicken dinner fabuloso Saturday post, Kalei.
    The lead picture, Oh me oh my, just gorgeous!
    Ok, want that recording of David singing Crush in Spanish. Kari/Archuleta Team could you make that happen pronto, lol.

  46. tami lyn says:

    can’t get on twitter 🙁 anyone else having problems ?

  47. Rapport says:

    Everyoe has dissected David’s face a milion times, from his bushy brows to his exquisite eyes (are they green, are they hazel, are they green-hazel, are they brown-green? and so on) and his luscious-to-downright-let-me-be-the-first-to-kiss-those-lips.

    Personally, I am in love with his nose. It is divine, whether in profile or straight on. That’s a nose a girl could fall in love with.

  48. Rapport, your so funny, you know, i have noticed his nose but didn’t think anyone noticed noses. There isn’t too much that i can critique on Davids features. As far as i’m concerned perfect.

  49. tami-lyn, i don’t have problem getting on right now. Have my problem with tweeter once in a while.

  50. collegemom says:

    lct- regarding your question about the Forbes top Idol earnings list that usually comes out in July or so for the year ending May 31 – I read a while back that the list was going to come out later closer to the beginning of Idol because they thought that made more sense for an Idol list. I am hoping that they include everyone on the list that made over a million because we know that David had a very strong year with Bench & Nandito Ako, tours, MOTAB, etc.

  51. College mom thank you for the info. I’m curious too?

  52. lct#DA2014 says:

    Thanks Collegemom for noticing and answering my question. I’m hoping he did well. He had such a busy year! But I’m wondering if they’ll only include profits from music or the rest of his activities?

  53. Rapport says:

    I’m pretty sure David will be on the Forbes list again. Per collegemom, his take-home from Nandito Ako, Bench, and other promotional fees, his Christmas tour, ongoing merchandise sales and continued song and book royalties should catapult him well beyond the million dollar mark. (Does Forbes include “everything” earned in their lists?)

    When you look at the landscape, David has his fingers in everything — and always in a good way. That’s why I’m so confident he can and will make a better-than-better living from music when he returns — even if it’s just through intimate concerts, not sold-out stadiums.

    David’s the kinda guy that just grows on you. He may not explode onto the scene when he comes back (a choice he may consider), but he will make an impression in this world. He may do it one person at a time, but it will happen. Until the whole universe knows his name.

    Everything in stride and in everything time. That’s David. And I like his attitude.

  54. Rapport says:

    Oops! . . .and everything in time.

  55. Rapport, i love what you wrote. I believe what you wrote. I know that some day David will make his mark in this world. I think for myself at least because i am older, i want things in a hurry. But thats not the way it works, i’m happy for what i have experienced from David already and will continue supporting him. Maybe for me life is short now but for David he has his whole life ahead of him. I am so proud of him just as i am of my own grandsons who happen to be around his age.

  56. I have been voting on wise radio all morning biengs everything is slow everywhere right now. I’m glad the poets are out. Does anyone know who they were? Where they came from? thier fans were fierce, i thought we were. LOL!

  57. YEA! I ordered my BEGIN from WOWD with the postcard bonus. Can’t hardly wait to receive it.

  58. sarahhazel says:

    Rapport–I agree….David will continue to make a great living being a musician if he chooses not to be super famous—> (which he could be). 🙂

  59. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–good for you!…I’m gonna order mine too! 🙂

  60. sarahhazel says:

    David book signings are so much fun…..I hope I can go to one someday!

  61. sarahhazel says:

    Here’s another one….LOL…he’s so spontaneous and funny!

  62. Elysian says:

    Kalei- Thank you sooooo much for both today and yesterday”s AWESOME posts! I particularly love your remembrances of the Tulsa and Constitution Fair concerts. Your incredibly detailed descriptions allow me to experience the fun and excitement as though I was right there beside you! I really wish I was with you when you were lucky enough to have fortuitously heard David singing from across the field. I can imagine the beautiful sound of david’s voice wafting through the night sky beaconing to you. It sounds absolutely magical!! I am so happy that you have such special memories and that you were kind enough to share them with us!

  63. Elysian says:

    sydnie- Sorry that I missed you here yesterday. I wish you were going the the Nor-Cal luncheon so that I can finally meet you!! How cool that you have family in Cupertino! It was a lovely place to grow up. I was surrounded by orchards and strawberry fields back then, which have now all been replaced by high tech companies. I miss the agricultural feel, but it is still a nice neighborhood.

  64. Elysian says:

    sarahhazel- I wish you could attend the Nor-Cal luncheon too! Weren’t you in CA recently? Too bad the timing didn’t work out for you to have been here for the get together.

    Kalei- Thank you for posting another reminder of the Nor-Cal fan gathering,– so nice of you!

  65. Elysian says:

    Well, sorry to post and run, but I have a bunch of errands to do before it gets too late. Have a great weekend everyone!

  66. It’s kinda slow in here today, but its ok. I’m sure everybody is busy with something and thats the way it should be. David would want us to go on with our lives. I’m in and out, because i’ve been voting on wise almost all day, but i check in once in a while. I will trend tonight for DavidArchieVenezuela ” Latins Archies Love BEGIN ” 7:00pm UTAH time. BBL

  67. sarahhazel says:

    Elysian–Yes, I was in CA 9/7-9/11….wrong timing I guess….but your area is far anyway….maybe someday…..but I hope u guys have a grand time! 🙂

  68. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–yup, slow these past few days….until another surprise comes up…..oh, I do hope there are some more cuz we have a long way to go!

  69. sarahhazel, i truly believe we do have more surprises. But i’m glad its a little spread out. What we have to do is try and keep Davids name out there with tweeter or anything that we can promote his name. We know that some people will forget about him, we will try and try and remind them once in a while that there is a lot of David Archuleta to go yet.

  70. David Cute Archuleta is trending #7 in Indonesia right now.

  71. breanne says:

    Watch Everybody Hurts mv & let’s get the #’s up. LOVE this mv so much!!!

    Linda From Cali, Poet’s of the Fall are from Finland. The djs from @WISE_RADIO said they have a huge following in Finland & that is why their #’s always went up when we were sleeping. Go to their facebook page & you will be amazed at the difference between them & David!! I’ll take David anyday! 🙂

  72. kimk says:

    Ha_#DA2014 ‏@Ha_Archie
    Wow…Latin Archies Love Begin is trending WW #6!!!!! Keep it trend, Archies!

  73. kimk says:

    Sam Guevara ϟ ‏@SamLouiseG
    Love the fact that “Latin Archies Love Begin” is TT worldwide at #5 🙂

  74. kimk says:


    DavidArchieArgentina ‏@DA2014Argentina
    @kariontour @DavidArchie Latin Archies Love Begin WWTT! =) Hope to see BEGIN in Argentina someday!

  75. sarahhazel says:

    Aww….I feel sad that BEGIN. is not available in some countries where there are dedicated Archies….. 🙁

  76. kimk says:

    sarahhazel now that David is entrenched in Chile for two years.. maybe he will do what he did in Asia in SA and CA! Latin American concert tour!!?

  77. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–he has fans all over Latin American countries so I think he will be successful releasing Spanish songs and doing a tour….his fans there have been patiently waiting for a long while now!

  78. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I was so taken by that photo shared by Hanne that I copied it to my FB group, put it on my wall paper then realized that I didn’t come back to see the rest of today’s post until now. LOL….nice post Kalei. His eyes in that photo, eyes of “steal” stealing young girl’s hearts!

  79. Finally got a few minutes to check in…and put a few tweets in! Family sure has kept me busy!

    sarahhazel ad kimk…Spanish album and a Latin Amrican tour sounds GREAT! The Latin fans sure have been patient and supportive! Just SO MANY FANS from all over the world that want to see him …including all of us!

  80. I’m back from trending. we did good. They are trending again at 10:00 i think the same trend. The are go getters.

  81. Miss Vicki#DA2014 says:

    Greetings all FOD…Had a busy day working in the yard….so so tired….THAT PIC OF DAVID AT THE TOP OF THIS POST IS A KILLER…..David’s eyes are so green and peircing….and Rapport….I also love his nose….LOL….Miss Vicki

  82. By chance says:

    You just can’t help but smile after watching 45 minutes of David rambling, swiveling, gesturing, smiling ( oh, that smile!), more swiveling, and saying some really meaningful things in the midst of it all!……..just can’t not love him!

    Goodnight whoever’s here.

  83. Its funny that we have been with david so long that we can understand him even if he rambles. We just have to read between the lines.

    breanne, hi for some reasons I could not get in to wise radio at the beginning when he was up to 6000 then I was able to get into WR fb and started to vote from 8am til 2am until David was up to 29000 votes and I decided to stop. I was crazy yeah I said to myself he gotta eat and sleep and I can get my 2000 votes up and then he did the same thing to me it was funny. I studied their # it’s goes up 1 point at the time it’s not like going from 10 to 50 to 100 so it shouldn’t be to many people there but they steadily votes for 16 hr a day. I also studied my votes and our fans I can counts w/ 1 hand and some one gave 1 ding may be they think that can only vote 1 time a day or something. But what I am saying we could have done it too. At the end I felt like saying Yo to the other side almost like I know the person hahahahaha. U C what David made us do.:)))))

  86. By chance says:

    Oh, I also wanted to say I love what Rapport said ” he may do it one person at a time, but it will happen, til the whole universe knows his name…..”. I love the way you think!………and I feel pretty happy to be one of those “persons”. Thank you to everyone at FOD……..it’s great to come here, even on a “slow day”.

  87. Miss Vicki#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali and By chance…..Love our rambling man…He is defininately an INFP in Myers Briggs type talk….I ‘m and ENFP so I certainly understand his rambling, random nature and I find it so attractive………Miss Vicki

  88. OoO i have been voting on wise radio almost all day. I took a break to trend, and will vote a little more before i go to bed.

  89. By chance says:

    Miss Vickie…..I was going to bed, but now I have to ask a probably really stupid question……what is ENFP?

  90. By Chance, good question, inquiring mind want to know

  91. By chance says:

    Linda…glad I’m not alone!

  92. Ali says:

    For those asking about Forbes and whether David might be in this year’s top 10 for AI, here’s where Forbes gets their info for that list:

    “These numbers are based on estimated pretax income earned from May 2010 to May 2011, before subtracting agent and manager fees. The totals were compiled with the help of data from Pollstar, RIAA and others, as well as interviews with industry insiders including managers, concert promoters, publicists, agents and, in some cases, the musicians themselves.” — this is from last year’s list.

    Artists who had big albums and/or big tours during that one year timeframe will rank higher on the Forbes list. Many of the Idols have come out and said that the info Forbes gathers is not necessarily correct. Given that David is not around for them to talk to, I have no idea if Forbes would go to the trouble to find out what he earned in the Philippines for endorsements and Nandito Ako. Or whether they’ll have access to what he earned on his Asian tour in July 2011. I guess we’ll see when the list comes out but I just wanted everyone to be aware that Forbes doesn’t have access to all information. They’re just making an estimate.

  93. OoO says:

    Rapport 2:25 haha I see u in love w/ his nose and I am allergic to his cheeks they are poofy and made my smile stuck on my face sometimes my mom asking me why I am smiling. A Big smile with tight lips will make a poofy cheeks everytimes.

  94. By Chance maybe Miss Vicki went to bed. We will have to wait until we hear from her again.

  95. OoO says:

    Ali is the new sale numbers come out yet? I tried to go to Idolhead Ed I couldn’t get in. I search around and no luck.

  96. Ali says:

    OoO – the Billboard numbers are out but, as the past couple weeks, David is not in the BB200 so his numbers won’t be there. i haven’t seen any leaks yet for numbers below the top 200. i’ll let you know if i do. 🙂

  97. By chance says:

    Linda……yeah, guess that burning question will have to wait.

    OoO……for me, it’s the kinda crooked, mega watt smile…..gets me every time!

    Goodnight again….this time for reals. Sweet smiley, eyes, nose, cheeks dreams everyone!

  98. Ali says:

    Linda, By chance — I believe Miss Vicki was talking about the Myers-Briggs personality types. ENFP stands for extraversion, intuition, feeling, perception. You can read more about it here:

  99. By chance says:

    Ali…that’s so sweet of you. Thank you!

  100. Ali says:

    You’re welcome!! Have a great rest of your night 🙂

  101. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight everyone. I loved the smile, cheek, nose, eyes comments. David is the whole deal. Trended and voted on WR. Left at 1,900 votes. Thanks for all your help. See you all tomorrow. Take care Linda. 🙂

  102. Ali Thank you for that info. Now i can go to bed, and yep that discribes David. Goodnight everyone. Hope you all have a blessed Sunday tomorrow. I will be in and out as i have a busy day tomorrow. have company again.

  103. Miss Vicki#DA2014 says:

    By Chance…It is Myers Briggs personality theory…You are either an Introvert (David) or Extravert (me); Use Intuition (David/me) or Sensing- hard cold facts; Feeling (David/me) or Thinking; Perception (David/me) or Judging……Get a book on Myers Briggs personality type theory…It is facinating to analyse your significant others, friends, coworkers, or favorite super stars like David…..Miss Vicki

  104. Miss Vicki#DA2014 says:

    supergrandjudie….I agree David is the package deal….He has it all…Forehead, eyes, nose, cheeks, lips, voice, chin…..did I say VOICE…..Miss Vicki

  105. Miss Vicki#DA2014 says:

    Hi Linda from Cali and By chance….Glad Ali posted a link where you can find some more info on Myers Briggs……….Miss Vicki

  106. Miss Vicki#DA2014 says:

    NIGHT ALL….Tis the Witching Hour…..HAPPY SUNDAY ……Miss Vicki

  107. Martha says:

    Roselyn Garcia ‏@roselyn_DA2014
    Haha, I just found out @DavidArchie’s high school crush is a pretty theater actress named Marion Strobell. 😉


  108. lct#DA2014 says:

    Hey Marth, Great find! That Marion is pretty. David had/has good taste.


  109. lct#DA2014 says:

    I hope that above everything – David comes back with self confidence and an inner knowledge that he is just as talented as any successful artist out there. We believe in you David and we want you to believe in yourself.

  110. Martha says:

    Lct – It won’t let me post the link, but she ran for Miss Murray UT in 2009 with Mietra Aarabi, David’s friend.

  111. lct#DA2014 says:


    David is still in the lead with 75.28% (2,753 votes) Ends Friday.

    Marth, I tried too, but wonder if you have to follow her on Facebook?

  112. lct#DA2014 says:

    I remember that Ms Utah contest – somewhere there is a picture of David and his friend Ashlee sitting in the empty seats watching their friend Mietra. Was that the same contest – who won? (not that it matters anymore! haha) 🙂

  113. lct#DA2014 says:


    Looking at these two girls (believe they’re both latinas) who weren’t popular at the time David was on AI and I see they now have their own tv shows and are winning awards. They’re great individuals like David and are involved in charities. I’m proud of them but at the same time just a little melancholy because David just wasn’t given a chance OR David was such an introvert that it had a bit of an impact on his career…. ?

  114. Martha says:

    Lct – my comments just disappeared, I’ll try again.

    I don’t know who won the pageant – I saw a pic of the contestants on a Philippines fansite posted in October of 2009 with Mietra and Marion, originally taken from the Murray Journal. Don’t know if the pic of David and Ashlee came from that.

    Who knows why some make it and some not so much. I think David has made his own way and choices to where he is today; but I believe in my heart he will be successful. His day will come.

    Goodnight! I can barely type and think. Its 2:45 am here.

  115. lct#DA2014 says:

    Good nite Martha, Sleep well. It’s mid morning here and I got to get running on what I have to do! 🙂

  116. lct#DA2014 says:

    OMG, it’s lunch time now! Haven’t done a thing! where did time go?

  117. lct#DA2014 says:

    Profound morning thought! When people are shallow they don’t see or care about depth in others.

  118. kimk says:

    lct about Arianna Grande.. she performed before David at Myrtle Beach and she is a different kind of performer then David is. she sang current covers, her costumes were very show like and had a dance routine kind of thing to go with it. in other words she fits the mold to what is mainstream for today. her voice was ok too. she wasn’t for me but I can see why she has gained in popularity.
    as for Forbes.. the things he decides to take on are not necessarily ones that produce big paychecks but as in his charity they give bigger paybacks then monetary ones can give.
    if and when he comes back especially if he decides to marry and have children he may wish to do more mainstream types of things so he can at least support them somewhat.
    gives hope for us at least to see him out there more way I see it.
