2012 Memories Continue with BEGIN.!!


**Above BEGIN. gifs credit to @SamLouiseG**

BEGIN. was David’s gift of music and LOVE for the fans to have while he was away on his mission. He hoped it would help to connect us with what he’d been feeling and to help “bring us” to where he is on his mission. He gave his all including the precious days and hours he could have spent solely with family and friends before leaving on his mission to record each and every song. And every track on BEGIN. was  carefully chosen and recorded with his whole heart and soul. ~A HUGE shout-out of thanks continues from this grateful fan to David, Kari, Gina Orr,  Kurt Bestor, Jon Hunt, the musicians, Deseret Book, Shadow MT Records, and all others involved for this Amazing and treasured gift!!!!!

*BEGIN. was released on August 7, 2012, under Deseret Book‘s label, Highway Records,  a subsidiary of Shadow Mountain.

*BEGIN. debuted at #28 on BB 200 with SoundScan reporting 11,000 units sold the first week! It also ranked #5 on the BB Independent albums and #3 on Top Internet Downloads!!

*The album consists of ten tracks, nine covers and 1 original.

*The original song “Broken”  co-written by David and Jon Hunt and sung by Archuleta himself.

* A music video for the song “Everybody Hurts” was released on August 23.  The video was directed by Jed Wells on location in Utah, and showcases clips of David singing in studio recording it the day before he left on his mission!!

The album was also later released in Malaysia through Sony Music and in Philippines by Ivory Records.

David pre recorded a series of vids prepared and given to us by Kari to help introduce and explain the album. Below is a playlist which contains these videos from David. I re-watched them last night and was reminded all over again how very much he cared to leave us this gift of music …how very important it was for him to share a piece of his heart with us during his mission!

When David returns in 2014, which song from BEGIN. would you most like to hear him sing live and why? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this in our comment section, or you can email in your personal thoughts on what BEGIN. has meant to you. We’d love to share them!! fodfrontpage@gmail.com

Here are some more LOVELY collages and depictions by fans of BEGIN.

There was also a photo contest held on DavidArchuleta.com (The OS) in which fans sent in photos to depict what “BEGIN.” meant to them. The photos were all LOVELY . re-visit the OS to gaze on the beautiful winning photos once again.

Everybody Hurts Music Video

As stated above, the EH MV was released on August 23rd, 2012. It currently has 273,470 views which is great, the count should be much higher (imo) as this video is beautifully done! Watch below. 🙂

Everybody Hurts came in at #1 in the most recent round of Musiqtone voting!!! See the links below and continue to vote! It’s also liste on Chart Central and MYX.com (see links below)

A Man Of A Thousand Faces

After the latest photo released by Matt Clayton, @Pocoelsy has come to the conclusion that David is a man of a thousand faces! ….ummm might have to agree! 🙂 All are fine by me!

Denver HRC 2010 ~The Whole Shebang in HD From DavidRBecken! <—Big Thanks to David!! 🙂

Published on Dec 31, 2012

This is a video of David Archuleta performing early one morning at the Hard Rock Cafe in Denver, December of 2010. (he first appears at about 2:05) It was a private show sponsored by a radio station, and there were 50 people in attendance. I had the camera on a tripod, and didnt keep it centered on him, I mostly just sort of let what happened happen. So, he isn’t always centered, and he isn’t always even in the shot. My point of view from the rafters isn’t the best, either. I am posting this only because it exists, for anyone who hasn’t had an opportunity to see him perform live.

Not a “David” cover, but a GREAT rendition from @JWipe who’s helping us to usher in the New Year! Very nice, Jerry!

Comparison Pics~

David alias Benjamin Button

This is a GREAT comparison from Tina!! (@Rhiminee) Does David’s aging clock move counterclockwise? With the addition of a previously taken Matt Clayton photo at the top of the post, I might really have to think about the validity of why Tina’s perplexed!!  😉 Either way, this newly turned 22 yr old is looking very happy and sparkly!!!

  8. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Thanks Joanie for the post. I love the singing snowman. Even closes his eyes in places like David does!
    Loved Jerry’s rendition of Auld Lang Syne. Here’s mine (not comparing, Jerry’s is better) if anyone wants to listen. It was from last year. This year, I’m still on the tail end of recovering from a bad cold so I wouldn’t sound too great. At the end of my video I explain the meaning of Auld Lang Syne. Happy New Year! (2013 instead of 2012 like it says in my video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=939zYI2FhHo

  40. Connie@Toronto says:

    Thanks Joanie for the nice post today. Love that Hard Rock Denver performance of David. It’s nice to watched those mini appearances of David that was not seen before. I love those comparison pics. He glows and look so happy. That post from Kari really makes the holiday season complete. Seeing David so happy gave a big smile in my face and I’m so happy when I saw it. Congratulations to David, Jasmine and everybody in Nandito Ako. David’s hard work have gotten him an award. We need to see more of his acting hopefully a Broadway performance or a movie in the US when he return #2014.

  41. sarahhazel says:

    Connie–Hi! So happy for David’s 1st acting recognition!….even though it’s from Asia….he IS a natural actor and hope he will have more projects like that there and here in the US!

  42. sarahhazel says:

    Disney Dreaming ‏@Disney_Dreaming

    David Archuleta Thanks His Fans For His Holiday And Birthday Cards And Gifts http://goo.gl/OZHlb

  43. I’m so glad to see the BUZZ starting. I hope it continues.
    Its always good to have buzz for David. I left a comment.
    Hi Connie@Toronto. So good to have you here.

  44. I.m watching Univision ( spanish network) They were talking to actors actresses & singers about what they did before becoming too famous.
    They all went to college. Gloria estefan went to Miami university and got certificate in Sicology. Others are Architects, lawyers etc.
    The point i was trying to make is that so many of them went to college and got certified but still went on with thier careers.

  45. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Video pick of the day “My Kind of Perfect” on Skate From the Heart aired January 2011. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwfrkPAiYv0

  46. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hey FOD friends. 🙂
    Joanie…your trying to kill us aren’t you. lol Soooo many beautiful pics. 🙂
    As for what song from Begin would I most like to hear live….you know what….i don’t count it as one of my favs from the album (not that it isn’t good) but when it comes to live I would definitely want to hear david sing Bridge Over Troubled Water. With the live emotion, passion, wailing he would bring to that song….boy oh boy PLEASE sing that song live one day dear David.

  47. kmb says:

    As I was skimming through the posts from the last few days, I especially all the stuff from NA. I just have to say that the a-ha moment in NA for me was the cemetery scene. Right after that scene, I just knew we were in for something very special with this series. That whole episode was such a tearjerker and David showed such natural emotion. So, even though the cemetery scene is so sad, it’s one of my favorite scenes and it has really stayed with me.

    I’m so glad I saved the DailyMotion links in my favorites, because I really doubt we will get a DVD. I guess you never know though. A HUGE thanks goes to all the Filipino fans who took the time to subtitle the episodes for us!

  48. kmb says:

    *I especially enjoyed

  59. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kmb…actually very true! That cemetery scene was so real! Awesome acting.

    Haha…so david has been telling girls they have.nice eyes!? Woot woot! I love that no end! Yehaaaw! lolol

  60. Glitter girl, i say NOPE too.

    Sarahhazel got 300 in.

  61. kimk says:

    Shanny ha.. yup.

  62. Shanny in Australia says:

    I think next Christmas will be pretty festive in Archuletaland lol. I’m looking forward to it.
    Then the last countdown will probably draaag. But at least we’ll be on the countdown! Woohoo!
    Gosh i’m getting excited just contemplating the excitement. lol

  63. Shanny in Australia says:

    I keep going back to that pic D sent us. So sparkly and happy. 🙂
    I wonder if he’s read all the measages in the birthday book already? I wonder if he read them all in one go or is reading a few every now again to remind himself that his fans are still waiting for him?

  64. archufabulousx says:

    uh, hi. so, i sort of just now decided that my new year’s resolution is to kinda “rejoin” the fanbase. see, i’ve continued loving david, but i’ve been a little bit out of the loop i suppose.

    and i guess i’m sick of having no one to fangirl over david archuleta with. so, hello there.

  65. Hi! Archufabulousx, welcome back. You are in the right place if you want to spazz.
    Everyone here a great spazzers.

  66. kimk says:

    Archufabulousx hey!

    Riska ☺ ‏@GreysonArchie
    Matt, I’m a big fan of you. You did it perfect,David Archuleta’s pict killed me slowly lol

  67. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I know David is friends with Joy Williams and likes her group Civil Wars. (Is that the group that broke up recently?) Anyways, this is my high school alumni friend, Michelle’s daughter Rachel with her duet partner singing Poison and Wine by Civil Wars. She has a beautiful voice (and his voice is good to). Their group is called Plastic Soup Music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hw5ZpAKVe-w&list=UUqgzKt25HutC2pzeZc9Ce7Q&index=2
    The other song I like they sing is Shadow on the Wall by Brandi Carlile.

  68. Janel aka Nellie says:

    ooops, his voice is good too, not to. His name is Caleb (which is my son’s name, cool!)

  69. kimk says:

    almost looks like he is crying at the end of Wherever You Are?
    last time on stage no?
    think this is one of my fav performances of his.
    WYA.. one word.. GAH!!
    he looks incredible too

    thanks jackryan!

  70. pocoelsy says:

    Hello all my great spazzer friends 😀

    Joanie thanks for the great post, now how can I get things done around the house when there’re tons of gorgeous pic to “study” !!, I spent a good 20 mins on the top pic alone lol…love those comparison pics and the collections of BEGIN too.

    It’s incredible that the man is away but we still get good news of him winning things and a lot of polls to keep us busy…people outside the fanbase are still interested in our guy too.

  71. kimk says:


    David is NOT the only hunk on Matt Clayton’s site!!
    guy on the left is not chopped liver!
    geesh.. what more is in store for us!!?


  72. kimk says:

    Janel they do have fabulous voices.. not my style but nice.

  73. pocoelsy says:

    To answer the question about David pic on Galaxie Mag. it’s half of the poster size..I don’t really know what size it’s called …A4 I think, he was featured right along with Kelly Clarkson, JB, Christina A., Katy P. Hugh Jackman ect. I’m sure we can say that he’s featured on Galaxie more often than any other AI alum!! and they always said nice thing about him, so there’s only one conclusion!! Galaxie loves our David, oh but there’s no article about David in this issue tho…as long as they still put David’s pic in their magazine…it’s fine by me 🙂

  74. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi archufabulousx! Welcome, welcome! Jump in, chat away, spazz to the max. We love it. 🙂

    So what have you been wanting to spazz with people over recently…music, pics, sparkly eyes? lol Have you heard the Begin. album? What’s your favourite song from it?

    Actually everyone…joanie asked in the frontpage post, what song from Begin. would people most like to hear david sing live. I would love to hear all your opinions on that too.

  75. kimk says:

    pocoelsy dang.. lucky peeps to get all that stuff!!

  76. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, reminds me of david beckham. Then I noticed the ball…maybe thats why he was reminding me of david beckham…?

  77. Shanny in Australia says:

    Poco – that all sounds good to me. Love that he is included with big name celebrities. He sure does deserve to be!

  78. archufabulousx says:

    hi guys. well, i see that everybody is flailing over a new matt clayton pic. hah, he’s pretty much legendary in the archie fanbase now, isn’t he?

    i have listened to begin. sad to say that i don’t listen to it nearly enough. i don’t even own it to be honest, but i did see it in a local barnes and noble, and i flailed! however, they only had one copy, and it was $15…which was probably about a third of the money i had in my purse. 😐

    my favorite cover off begin might be true colors. i just like how he took that song, and made it super soulful and idk, warm sounding. something that’s really beautiful to my ears.

  79. Shanny in Australia says:

    Janel, they sound really good. Her voice reminds me of yours – similar tones.

  80. pocoelsy says:


    I know hehe, love to see him in magazine-TV, always make me so excited and spazzyy lol

    Talk about spazzing, I have a little story to share…I went back to Thailand in early November and never expected to hear anything about David since he’s not on the radar there for a while but to my delightful surprise !!! the next morning I went for shopping…at the mall they played “Crush”!! so loud!! I was spazzing so bad with my daughter…haha she pulled my shirt and said “Mom mom it’s David..David’s singing crush mom!!!” we were all like …hyperventalation and eekkk and smile like idiots haha on top of that we saw some peeps sang along with D. too ahhh. What a nice welcome home I got from David urr…the mall.!!

  81. breanne says:

    VOTE for TV5 (#1), @DavidArchie @jascurtissmith (#12 Fave Love Team) & Nandito Ako (#13) http://startriga.blogspot.com/2012/12/star-likers-choice-award-2012-for-tv_16.html … … They are all in THIRD PLACE!!! 🙁

  82. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ha,.yeah…i think lots of Archies would happily give Mr Matt Clayton a big squeezy hug and a kiss on the cheek, just because he has made so many Archies happy over and over again.

    True Colours – soulful – thats true actually, he did make it very soulful. I love the beginning of that song. I will make sure to listen to it again today and really listen for the ‘soulfulness’ in the song.

    Just made me think….one way david’s music keeps me interested is that there are so many things to listen out for and enjoy. His licks and runs, little aches and wails, sometimes I listen more to all the background vocals, sometimes I listen to the messages he might be trying to share with us in the song choice and now today, I will be listening for the ‘soulfulness’ in True Colours. 🙂

  83. kimk says:

    Shanny David Beckham.. ok will go with that. 🙂
    ha more please.

  84. pocoelsy says:


    I hope they keep this up, like post D.pic or a shout out.. once in a while there.. just like a reminder or somthing 🙂

    archufabulousx ..:) Hello there, I love to hear him sing “True Colors” live too, so soulfull, sweet, his voice was sooo creamy and warm there..<3, love to hear Broken, Bridge Over Troubled Water and Angel too his version and interpretaion just blow me away..in fact I love all the songs in there…do we really have to choose lol?!!

  85. Shanny in Australia says:

    Poco, lol, love the story. I don’t know how people manage to keep the fangirling under control in situations like that. I think I would definitely have to mention it to a couple of people shopping around me, – very casually of course. 😉

  86. Archufabulousx, the song i would love to hear David sing live is PRIDE.
    I bet he could really make it his own on stage and live. SPAZZING here!!!!!

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Just stopping by to say G’night, came home
    from work sick today, bad cold, to stuffed up
    to sit at my computer,lol. Hard to ask the
    Fine Feathered Fellows to make me some Chicken
    soup, I had to sneak it into the house & send them
    on an errand, so they didnt see me eat it 😀 Ciao!

  94. pocoelsy says:

    breanne, thanks again for the link(s) you make our lives so much easier :D, nice to see David and NA leading so far ahead 🙂 have to make more effort on Jasmin tho.

    Sarahhazel, Hello there..happy 26th birthday to your son 😀

    Look at the time !!! I have to go get things done around the house now !! it’s so dusty since we’ve been away for almost 2 months !! just imagine the DUST haha hope I don’t have allergies attack lol. See you all later, have a nice day or good night 🙂

  95. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–aw, hope u feel better soon….have a restful night!

  96. sarahhazel says:

    pocoelsy–thanks!….see ya later!

  97. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, just watched that wYA vid you posted. Ahhh…so healing to see david perform again and all that love and adoration he gets there in the Ph. Yes, I really get the impression he was singing out his love message to the fans there at the end of WYA, seemed a little emotional somehow. I loved the little run he added right at the end of SBL too. Very cool.
    In that vid he seems so cool, so cute, so sweet, so handsome…all rolled into one…little glimpses of each person roll by. 🙂

    On another note…talking about what we’d like to hear live from the Begin. album…i definitely cannot die until david has sung BOTW live.but actually…my very favourite from the album – Angel – would probably be all kinds of magical and emotional too, if he sung it live. Gah! We have some good things coming to us in 2014 don’t we peeps! 🙂

  98. josie says:

    Welcome back to the fanbase, archufab…ulousx. (What is with all the long usernames that I can’t type? lol) I go in & out of “fandomness” myself, so I understand. Beth~ Sorry you don’t feel well. 🙁 ….The only interaction I’ve had with David was 10 seconds of him staring at me like I was drunk, so…yeah. I’d like a do-over. lol.

  99. Beth goodnight, hope you feel better. You have a problem there with ( you know what soup ). Didn’t want to say the name in case they were listening.

    Pocoelsy, Goodnight/day. Good to hear from you again.

  100. Pocoe;sy, forgot to say, i just won’t wears socks when i hear David sing PRIDE live,

  101. kimk says:

    Shanny by the time he comes back he will need to do 3+ hour concerts!!

  102. nora says:

    sarahhazel-just got my 300 votes in . Are you voting on the entertainment poll, I just finished for awhile, NA is ahead but not by much, will go back later and vote some more.David is ahead, he is up against some pretty big names, but we can pull him through
    MC should always be the one to Photograph David, that last picture is gorgeous, but look at who the picture is of. David looks so different in every picture that is taken, how does he do that.

  103. nora says:

    Beth sorry to hear that you are not feeling well, get better soon, we need your whit. Hope you feel better soon.

  104. kimk says:

    mmm yes Pride.. hope he rocks it out!!

  105. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–can’t wait for the Begin Again Tour (of course, that’s a name one of us came up with…haha!)…..it will be the most fabulous thing ever!!!

  106. Shanny in Australia says:

    Maybe we should organise an ‘inside joke’ and spread the word around that at the next tour, no-one is to wear socks, so that when D notices, someone can explain that he knocked everyone’s socks off. lol

    Bethy, get some rest and get better.
    See ya Poco. Happy dusting. lol

  107. sarahhazel says:

    nora–done with 300 votes…..and yes, I vote on the new EL poll….David and NA have a wide margin from the others. 🙂
    (they’re still 3rd place on the Startiga poll)

  108. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi Breanne. 🙂
    Sarahhazel, happy birthday to your son! What type of food did you have?

  109. kimk says:

    Shanny ha might not notice.. not sure if he looks at all our feet. now if we were wearing all rainbow wigs, sparkly glasses, funny hats.. then he might do a..
    you all nuts look.

  110. sarahhazel, Happy Birthday to your son.
    It will be very hard to catch up on the startriga poll. They started before us and are way ahead. All we can do is try and get him 2nd.
    I think they have us figured out. Thats why we did hear about it when it started.
    going to go vote again in a few.

  111. Kimk, Hey! that a a good idea. RAINBOW wigs.

  112. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–thanks….we went to California Pizza Kitchen….and had pasta with marinara, 3-cheese pizza with roasted tomatoes and kinds of salad–roasted veggie & waldorf….then went to another place to get a chocolate chip cheesecake and a s’mores cupcakes. 🙂

  113. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–thanks….we had fun time.
    —yes, it will hard to catch up on the Startiga poll….

  114. Shanny in Australia says:

    I think people could make him notice – during the vip’s and after signings etc. Wear clothes which highlight it – like sneakers rather than dress shoes or something. Or maybe wear t-shirts that say ‘David knocked my socks off’ or something.
    I think he’d enjoy a joke of some sort – even if it wasn’t the sock thing but something else. Fosters camaraderie too. 🙂

  115. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel sounds like you had a fun, indulgent time then – just right for a 26yo son. lol That roasted salad sounds yummy.

  116. sarahhazel says:

    We should all wear funky David-inspired costumes/outifts, carry funny posters and all kinds of lighted thingies for maximum festive ambiance effect at his concerts! 😀 😆

  117. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–yup, yummy fare….actually kinda healthy….& we shared the servings….and the cupcakes too….to minimize the sugar/carb/calorie intake…LOL

  118. sarahhazel says:


  119. Sarahhazel, sounds like a good idea. We should wear something to make him take notice and know that we really missed him. That would be fun. Or even lighted hats or caps. He would love that.

    Also, your desert just sounds yummy. Now i’m craving something sweet.

  120. Sarahhazel, goodnight. ((HUGS))

  121. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Oh my gosh…..Hush cats….I JUST LOVE THE NEW MATT CLAYTON PIC….David looks so mature and sophisticated……Also a little worried…..David looks so thin in the face in the recent pic of him in Chile with his Birthday book…..He needs to put on a few pounds…..Those Chile missionary folks are not feeding him well enough…….Miss Vicki

  122. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh you did well then. (says she who has just finished eating croissants and chocolate slice lol)

    Definitely lighted thingees and posters.
    Hmmm…now my brain is ticking over….
    – angel wings?
    -missionary tags?
    -spanish clothing?
    …lol…think someone can come up with better ideas. Archies seem to like making t-shirts. Could come up with some message for t-shirts. We’ll have to plan some fun ideas for his welcome home. I wonder if Kari knows nd would be able to let us in on a few details of his early plans so we can organise something fun and special. Was just thinking about how it would be cool if fans could host a huge welcome home party somewhere….but then he’d have to sing and it would be like a free for all for, people to crowd around the guy lol….shame he almost has to host his own ‘welcome home’ party a.k.a a concert. I wonder if a party with david as the guest of honour could be pulled off….? Think so…or not…? Would be kind of unusual to have a celebrity turn up at a party thrown by his fans. But then again, david and this fanbase are not typical.

  123. nora says:

    Goodnight sarahazel, thanks for the info.

  124. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Shanny…..Love the idea of no one wearing socks at David’s next concert…..It would be true that he just knocked the socks off of everyone…..Miss Vicki

  125. Shanny in Australia says:

    Miss Vicki…one moment he was looking like he had gained some weight – at the devotional – next minute he’s all slimmed down.
    Surely he didn’t hear about the fans commenting on him having gained some weight…? But it sure did seem a little coincidental how he lost it straight afterwards – and fast how quickly he lost it again also.

  126. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sleep well Sarah. 🙂

  127. Bychance says:

    Shanny – Angel is the song I want to hear live, too. I love it on the album, and remember the first night when we were all spazzing about BEGIN, I sat there thinking ‘I am listening to an angel singing Angel.’ I just love it!

    Beth feel better soon, ok? ———soup should help.

  128. Bychance says:

    So I told myself I would not watch NA until 2013……….in case there wasn’t much going on by then and I needed to fill up the Archudrought…….and maybe just maybe, we would have a DVD by then. Well, as far as I can tell, there has not been much of a drought, and there is no DVD I site….and I am DYING to see it! So……would someone mind reminding me how to do that? I can still see it now, right??

    Linda, some of the tweets are sooo funny…..lettuce boy.lol

  137. ray says:

    stading by with crash cart,you guys going to need it soon lol

  138. Ray, just make sure that crash cart is handicap assesible.

  139. Goodnight everyone. Sweet David dreams. Special T-shirts sounds good to me for the Davis first concert.

  140. For Davids first concert

  141. Bychance says:

    Goodnight Linda. We need Firstbie t-shirts, too!

  142. josie says:

    Ray~ You know that the word “soon” is taboo in this culture…lol. Here is the definition of the word to Archuleta fans:

    Soon- “a specific moment in the time/space continuum between 5 minutes and 10 yrs. Each instance may vary; there is no known consistency. In some instances, the term may even refer to the previous day, month or year. Often, the specific moment is expected but never arrives.” Also, “a term loosely used to convey the expectation that an event will take place, while providing no information other than the word itself.” lol.

  143. Shanny in Australia says:

    Josie – bwhahaha! Did you come up with that yourself? It’s perfect!
    Love that we are developing our own dialect in Archuletaland.

    Oh Bychance – ENJOY!!!! 🙂

  144. sydnie says:

    Woah, what an incredibly glorious & sparkly thumbs up David pic! 😀
    Makeup, fancy clothes, blinks, hair stylists (hehe), etc are unnecessary when one is as naturally beautiful as David! I feel an overwhelming sense of calmness/serenity just from staring at his happy, pure, clean, fresh and healthy glowy face! 😀

  145. Gwen says:

    Hello all, would love to hear David sing Broken, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Everybody Hurts , Wherever You Are, Forevermore . Let’s face I want to hear them ALL. He needs to sing for a long time in a big venue and then come to a fan get together the next day so we can all meet and visit.

  146. sydnie says:

    Got home yesterday from vaca and been in catchup mode with everything! Have to get acclimated with the freezing SF weather again yikes!

    Wait, what happened to David’s tan from the Chile Christmas concerts? I see his normal paleness in the latest epic mish pic lol!

  147. sydnie says:

    Hi Gwen, that’d be great! 😀
    Hello & Good night everyone! 😀

  148. jhen says:

    I agree David look younger today than on Feb last yr., might be his short haircut that make him look younger.

  149. jhen says:

    When David return in 2012. I would love to hear him sing Broken, because that is his original song aside from it’s a beautiful song with good message.

  150. jhen says:

    *2014 I mean

  151. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD! HAPPY THURSDAY!

    Want to hear David sing Nandito Ako, ANYTHING in Spanish and about 15 other songs of his choice…..DREAM CONCERT! He ALWAYS knows what to sing to make his concerts AMAZING!

    I LOVE pictures of David taken by fans …..ESPECIALLY ones of David on stage doing what he does best….singing and being DAVID! Something so SPECIAL about that!
