David was a superstar!  Or is that super estrella?  He rocked the suit and the red carpet, took home a nifty award and captured hearts everywhere with his emotion-packed rendition of  Contigo en la Distancia.  Against a backdrop of twinkling stars David sang to us in Spanish – and instantly we understood why it is called a Romance language.

All together now…. SPANISH ALBUM!

Christmas in September

It was a year ago this month that David did a September vlog announcing that the Glad Christmas Tidings DVD and CD were available!  Remember how he signed 5,000 copies  of the cd in a few days – talk about a hand cramp and the number of sharpies it must have taken to autograph that many cds!  David is a trooper!

Violet4ever also tweeted a link to a GCT Interview that David did with Mack Wiberg, the Music Director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  Brings back so many great MoTab memories!  What are we going to do this holiday season without David concerts?

  20. Martha says:

    Edit of Shout to the Lord with the studio version, showcasing more of David’s voice:


    The songwriter and first performer of the song, Darlene Zschech of Sydney Australia, will be at my church Sunday evening. She has been to our church several times; when they did the song she said she was very honored and happy they did it.

  21. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–that’s cool that the original singer will be at your church….love that video….S7 is the best!

  25. Good morning everyone. Kalei, great post. Don’t know how you mods do it, but you always come through with some awesome stuff. Enjoyed the chat last night.
    I have some things that have to be done around the house but as soon as i am done i will come back and go through all the gifs, tumblers, that Sarahhazel & Martha brought over. You guys rawk all the time. Well duty calls. BBL

  26. Martha, do you know when this was. His hair style cracks me up. Probably was in then.
    David was dancing up a storm there.

  27. Martha says:

    Linda – that was from a Guitar Hero commercial shown at the American Idol tour in 2008. The whole vid was posted above, here it is again:


  28. I just voted on Wise poll. We are up against Adam Lambert. So if you are going to have to vote extra hard. Adam has some diehard fans, that will give us a run for our money.

  29. nora says:

    just voted on Wise challenge poll, I don’t think Adam’s fans have woken up yet, but when they do, the will be relentless, we are ahead now, but keep on voting David is #1, right now.
    Great post Kalei, oh the memories of David at the Alma awards, come on Spanish album. Can’t wait!!!! BBL

    Forgot to say hi to everybody here. Hi everybody!!!

  30. Martha thanks. Now how did i ever miss that commercial. I thought i had seen everything. That was so cute.

  31. cq#DA2014 says:

    Fabuloso post Kalei, thank you.
    Talk about swoon worthy: David singing in Spanish, marriage made in heaven!

  33. Martha says:

    This has absolutely nothing to do with David (other than he likes to drink water):


    Thought it was interesting, don’t know the source though. Happy Drinking! 🙂

  34. Martha, very interesting Hmmm!!!!

  35. Martha says:



    He’s news to everyone…

  36. Martha says:

  39. Martha says:

    sarahhazel – He cleans up nicely, doesn’t he…. 😉

  40. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–yes, he does!…..and thanks for the water drinking tips! 🙂

  41. Sarahhazel, He’s got that archustare. Did you notice his eyes. Like he’s looking right at you.

  42. donna says:

    So I wonder what they are doing about the fact that that fan get-together is in the middle of General Conference?

  43. Martha says:

    donna – do you mean the Sounds of David get together?

  44. donna says:

    Yes the Sounds of David one. I see they have a mission president speaking as well.

  45. Martha says:

    donna – hmm – My daughter and I were thinking of going. I’m not LDS but I those involved may be. It would affect the Mission President but how about others that are LDS? Wonder if they thought of that before scheduling. Not being critical, just wondering.

  46. Martha says:

    **but I know those***

  47. granny Lyn from South Africa says:

    hi Kalei
    fantastic post
    wow!!! so much to go through lucklily it is Saturday night here so can relax and go through slowly
    seeing David signing in the one pic, I suddenly realised that he is holding his pen in exactly the same way as I do (I too am left handed)- I actually thought that the younger ones turned the paper rather than cup the hand. Yay!!! I have something in common with David. Have a good day everyonexxx

  48. Martha & Sarahhazel, again thank you so much for these tumblers and gifs. They bring back so many memories. I really have enjoyed watching them.

  49. kimk says:

    David was so handsome for Contigo.. really hope he gets another opportunity like that again some day.

  50. donna says:

    I agree Kim. That could not have been more perfect. Maybe he will have a Spanish Album in 2014 that will be nominated for an ALMA!

  51. I would love to hear him sing in the Alma Awards. I know he can sing in spanish, even befor he left for mission. Can you imagine after he gets back. Aye! aye! aye!

  52. kimk says:

    donna I second that.. would make sense he would considering everything.

  53. Canadianarchie says:

    Great post!

  54. kimk says:

    Linda I think at a vip when we didn’t know where he was going he said it would help him with his music.
    hope they find Spanish Crush and hope it is so popular it plays all over South America! 😉

  55. Oh! Yeah!. I hears Crush in spanish on a video one time long time ago. Different singer. It sounded good, and the verses were almost like the english ones. I hope they find it too. Oh! latin Ameica would go crazy for it.

  56. breanne says:

    Two group of fans are voting very heavily on @WISE_RADIO’s Music Challenge for this week. Adam Lambert’s fans aren’t voting too much yet, but once they figure out his song is on this poll, I’m sure they will. Broken is still winning but let’s all get our votes in so we don’t have to vote our fingers off by the end of the week. Voting ends on Friday, 9/28, at 8 pm EST. VOTE!!!

    #MusicChallenge This week at #1 @DavidArchie – Broken – Vote here http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wise-Radio/181618691893576?sk=app_208195102528120

  57. LaLiliana says:

    David looks great in those ocean blues striped t shirt in the pics above titled Collages and Gifs Galore. I have never seen David with stubble. I made the center pic really big on my ipad and there it was.

    Thanks for all the great pics, gifs, etc. and Juan’s art work is wonderful. I get a really good feeling from it.

  58. Anita says:

    For those going to Simply Thai tomorrow, have a fantastic time! It’s going to feel strange that David won’t have any Christmas shows this year. We’ve gotten so used to that every year since 2009.

    Kalei-SPANISH ALBUM!!!!!!

  59. donna says:

    Every year since 2008, actually. Saw him at the Z100 Jingle Ball in Madison Square Garden. Lady Gaga and Kanye West opened for him haha.

  60. sarahhazel says:

    donna–wow, LG & KW….that was so cool!….was that the one where he was 2nd to the last act before Chris Brown?

  61. kimk says:

    breane oh.. there is an Adam song on the Wise poll!!

  62. sarahhazel says:

    Who says David is shy??? He’s one heck of a party animal….haha!
    (Though they could’ve given him a better wig LOLOLOL)

  63. kimk says:

    sarahhazel rofl.

  64. kimk says:

    I remember being in Charlotte and going wild when I saw it.


    lol.. epic wonderful and sooooooooooo groovy!!
    ha the wig.. his lips look huge!

  65. Kimk, that was too funny!! Wish i would have seen more of david dancing.

  66. sarahhazel says:

    Almost a week to go before October…..where did the year go?….I’m not complaining….I want to skip 2013! 😆

  67. breanne says:


    @DavidArchie’s Go-getters we need your VOTES on @WISE_RADIO’s Music Challenge for Broken!!! PLEASE vote!!! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wise-Radio/181618691893576?sk=app_208195102528120

  68. Its fun voting on the wise poll when a lot of fans are voting at the same time. The numbers add up fast. Other wise its just one at a time.

  69. Bychance says:

    Laliliana…….those are some of my fav pics, too! So dang cute!

    I cannot wait to hear David sing in Spanish again! Contigo is flawless…perfection! I never get tired of it!

  70. kimk says:

    Ölivia ‏@OliviaTeasdale1
    david archuleta is the most adorable person ever omg.

  71. kimk says:

    Spanish Crush cover!!



  72. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–the YT video’s not saying who sang it……wow, it’s almost 700 thou views on it……but didn’t David actually record a Spanish Crush?….they should have released it back then!…..wonder what will happen if they release it now?

  73. kimk says:

    sarahhazel we have been asking that since we first saw the interview where he said he recorded it. lol got me.. release THE CRACKEN!

  74. Bychance says:

    Kimk……yes!!! on his Spanish album……old fans of Crush would notice…..might jump start his career when he returns…..it would all kind of wonderful to hear him do this song in Spanish!!!! Maybe we can get the whole album figured out before he gets here……all he has to do is slay us with his amazing voice!

  75. Martha says:

    This story was printed exactly 4 years ago today on the Spanish language Crush:


  76. Bychance says:

    He recorded it???!!!! Didn’t know that!

  77. Martha says:

    I wonder if a Spanish language Crush has been in the vault for a while and now they will release it when he is gone. Just dreamin……

  78. sarahhazel says:

    It will be kinda weird but really great if it becomes a number 1 hit in the Latin music charts!….now, my question is, who will be releasing it, if ever?

  79. kimk says:

    David himself said he recorded Crush in Spanish.. didn’t know about Angels!

  80. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol.. would be great!

    Archie Fan Problems ‏@ArchieFanProbz
    David probably sneezed and they stopped

  84. Martha says:

    Since he recorded it that long ago, he may not own it. It might be Jive or 19 or whoever. He would have to pay to use it, I guess. Unless it was a negotiating point which I can’t see that. (Look at me acting like I know what I am talking about haha).

  87. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–she is?!

  88. sarahhazel says:

    Aahh, the complexities of the music business! 😕

  89. When David said that they had recorded Crush in spanish but it needed work. If you look for the interview from KTLA christmas lighting after AI, He had an interview there and he talked about crush in spanish.

  96. David had an interview when he did the christmas tree lighting, talked about Crush in spanish. Don’t know if this is it.

  97. sorry, still need alot of practice bringing over tweets and vids.

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Just stopping by to say G’night. I’ve
    been watching some David vids & got some votes in
    at Wise Radio. I’m going to go snuggle under the covers
    and watch some tv. Its starting to get chile here

    great night 😀

  99. tami lyn says:

    i better see CFTH on store shelfs this holiday season or i’m gonna be pissed off! i need a brand new one cuz the one i have is totally scratched up and stuff from playing it one million+ times 🙂

  100. tami lyn says:

    who produced and distributed CFTH?? was it Jive? cuz maybe then i’m screwed since they’re out of business 🙁

  101. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi and so long. Just dropped in for a second. Was out all day. Now I see David needs some hugs on Wise Radio, so I’m going over there and then I’m going to bed. See you tomorrow.

  102. Anita says:

    If David did record a Spanish version of Crush, I wonder why in the world Jive didn’t put it on his debut album. Good grief!!

  103. kimk says:

    OMGOSH what a fabulous Nandito Ako!!!


    kaychan ‏@rocktellme
    Aww lots of emotions been overflowing while just watching @DavidArchie ‘s NA youtu.be/zc1xoudAhxQ by Cherry Mariano

  104. Candy says:

    Contigo was a defining moment for me…it was at that moment that David grew up right before my eyes. The performance was the first I saw the confidence, the classy swagger as he got up and walked(ok strutted) across the stage. The mature control in his voice, and his look…he was man, gone for me was the kid who was on American Idol. And I loved what I saw and heard and couldnt wait to hear more from this new David.

  105. Candy says:

    GAH-That performance was MAGNIFICENT!! I could watch it a million, zillion times and never get tired of hearing of seeing it.

  106. Anita says:

    Candy-David’s performance of Contigo takes my breath away! It surely is magnificent!!!

  107. Miss Vicki says:

    Hi all…Just love, love, love Contigo en la Distancia…..What a powerful performance and the black suit was’t bad either…JUST LOVE DAVID ALL DRESSED UP!!!!! Down here in Blacksburg, Virginia for the weekend with a lot of other Hokie parents……Glad Tech won against Bowling Green 37-0!!!!! GO HOKIES!!!!! Hope to see more of my son tomorrow before we head back to Richmond…..Miss Vicki

  108. Miss Vicki says:

    Yes…Candy…I agree…David grew up right before our eyes singing Contigo…Miss Vicki

  109. Bychance says:

    Kimk…..love this NA performance! This version ( though it cuts off early, dang it) ……gives a great close up view! Another great performance with him all dressed up and so in command of the stage. Will be viewing this a few more times tonight!!!

  110. Candy says:

    ByChance-I was just watching that NA performance, another time that he commanded the stage, his classy swagger was in full force. That series and the songs from it were wonderful. I wish there was a DVD.

    I listen to Contigo en la Distancia at least once or twice a week and I have to say it takes my breath away every time I listen. Yes MAGNIFICENT!!!!!
    David has said in past interviews that he wanted to release a song in Spanish when the time was right. Hoping that the timing is next year.

    Candy…..me too! I still haven’t seen NA! I told myself I would wait for my one year Archuversary haha…and wanted to give myself something to look forward to in 2013 in case of a real Archudrought. Plus, I thought by then the DVD would be out and it would be so much better to see it that way. Now…….I don’t know what to do! I so want a DVD!

  113. Bychance says:

    cq….yeah, I can’t think of a better time than next year!……meaning 2014!

  114. cq#DA2014 says:

    Yes. that NA performance was dang amazing too.

  115. Bychance says:

    cq….just realized you said a song in Spanish…….I was thinking a whole album. I’ll take both, please.

    Hey guys, I do wish we could get a straight answer about NA on DVD, there where tweets saying that they were working on a subtitled one last spring I think. If they decided not to do one after all, hopefully they would tell us and not leave us hanging so long. I wonder if Kari would know? Anyway thanks again FOD for another wonderful
    post, I love coming here everyday! Good night all!

    I’m sure this has already been posted, but it is so beautiful, wanted to post again.
    A little sad, for those who may not want to see.


    Miss you David, looking forward to your return.

    Hi ya’ll. 🙂

    Granny Lyn – haha, very cool you have something in common with the Archuleta! lol I love how because he is left handed, he doesn’t need to put his pen down in order to shake hands with the fans, when he is doing signings. 🙂

    Contigo was something of a defining moment for me too. It wasn’t too long after I had discovered him on youtube if I remember rightly. It was definitely a moment when I first went….wow, this guy is good looking, lol…..but it was also a moment when david went from being a really talented mormon kid….to being something of a superstar, in my eyes. In fact, unless my memory is letting me down, it was probably the moment I went from being fascinated/curious to being a fan that wanted to talk to otber people about david and squeee over.him till the cows came home. lol

  122. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hang on, listening to the vid pickles posted at 2.00am, I must have thought david was a superstar right from the beginning…because how could he possibly be anything else….? He was born that way wasn’t he? I dunno…there’s just something so special about david…..him, his voice….he just reaches in and grabs hold of something down deep inside of you doesn’t he….

  123. lct#DA2014 says:

    Thanks Pickles for the link! I wish I was creative with the use of technology to do videos and animated gifs using David’s gorgeousness!!!!

  124. lct#DA2014 says:

    What is it about Spanish music? David sounds so rich singing No Me Queda Mas and he sounds so classy singing Los Pastores de Belen, not to mention Contigo…..

    Also how many artists do you know that can carry off singing in more than one language?

    David and Bench


    come 2014 I would imagine he will be grown up in looks.. will be 23!!
    maybe if he goes for Bench
    again a more grown up approach? 🙂

  128. Good morning FOD!

    LOVED the NA vid by Cherry and David singing Contigo has been a daily visit! David doing a Spanish album and going back to the Philippines to pick up where he left off sounds like a PLAN! The support and market is there…and so are we!

    ENJOY YOUR DAY and your David time! 🙂
