Nineteen members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, based in Prescott, Ariz., were killed Sunday when a windblown wildfire overcame them north of Phoenix, AZ. It was the deadliest single day for U.S. firefighters since Sept. 11. Fourteen of the victims were in their 20s. 

Our prayers go out to the families of these brave members, and to the families affected by the devastating forest fires in AZ.

A blast from the past: Mission Impossible: When You Say You Love Me

Credit: Gail (Tulsa)

Yesterday was the 5 year anniversary of the American Idol S7 Live tour opener in Arizona.  Can you believe it?  I had no idea that, through the power of social media and generous fans, we wold be able to re-live the performances through fan stories and those amazing, often low quality but widely anticipated  YouTube vids.  Becky and Jenny posted these for us each evening and we rushed to find the latest daily.  It was like running to meet the mailman each day seeking a “you got accepted to college” letter!  And David didn’t disappoint!

Today I’m posting one of my favourite When You Say You Love Me performances. David broke from his intent focus momentarily and acknowledged the screaming crowd with a smile not once, but twice.  The sound and audio quality is, well, not like it is today, but this vid is just glorious!

I played this vid over and over back then, realizing that this was a rare moment, a momentary understanding between artist and audience that he had indeed CONNECTED!   This song was not my fave from the setlist at the start but grew on me exponentially as the months went by.  Here it is…my vid for today is Rascal’s When You Say You Love Me from Staples Theatre in LA, July 2008.

I have to leave you with an FOD favourite.  Becky wrote an insightful post entitled “Mission Impossible” When You Say You Love Me. Embedded are a number of her favourite WYSYLM vids from the summer tour. Sadly, most of the vids she links to have been pulled from Youtube or the videographer is now on Private. It’s not just sad, it’s criminal!  But Becky’s story is powerful just the same.

Read this great post here!  (BTW, the resounding winner of ‘your favourite WYSYLM’ poll was SLC, Night 1.  It garnered over 400 of the 771 total votes)

And I just MP4’d the LA performance up above and next week will share our Mediafire account with all!

We are still on a mini-vacay this week.  Thanks to all for sending in a pile of stuff to our box which we WILL post next week!

You are amazing!

Joanie is here tomorrow.  See you next week!

  14. sarahhazel says:

    I can’t find the tribute video by michelinmarie (WYSYLM)…probably got deleted already. 🙁

    This is one of the best WYSYLMs I found on the epic SLC (7/14/08) AI show…mostly shot from the giant screen but still great!

    Hi, VaBch!!! 🙂

  15. sarahhazel says:

  17. sarahhazel says:

    Another one by EvelynFOJG…..Angels SLC 7/14/08….could possibly be the craziest, loudest screams in the history of the AI tour….*lower your speaker/headphone volume* LOL

  18. cq#DA2014 says:

    Loving “vampire” David, lol..thank you for the vacapost, Pastel.

  19. sarahhazel says:

    whocaresdad ‏@whocaresdad

    You know you’re in Utah when you David Archuleta on the radio once an hour.

  20. Philly Fan says:

    Been a fan since AI7 but became an avid fan at the Philly concert. I loved all of David’s song set. When he came out of the stage singing Angels the crowd went wild but when he sang WYSYLM it was all over I became obsessed with that song and how David sang it. The audience @ that concert loved him and showed it. I do believe if David had the right people behind him his career would have soared I have no doubt about it because the audience was diverse at that concert. I have been to many concerts and he received the same admiration that I have seen given to other well known artists. JMHO

  21. cq#DA2014 says:

    Humm, wonder if David became MORE popular by the general public in Utah because of his mission discussion. I’m thinking that Utah is about 100% Mormon, anyway that’s the impression I get, so it stand to reason that would happen.

  22. sarahhazel says:

    Would be nice if I could hear David’s songs every hour…well, maybe every 2 hours…in radio stations here in my area…LOL

  23. cq#DA2014 says:

    Btw, not being critical in regards to that previous comment about Utah, just glad that David’s music is being play on the radio, just wishing it wasn’t only in Utah, lol.

  24. sarahhazel says:

    6. Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
    Maybe that dude on American Idol, David Archuleta. If he grew his hair out a bit, I think it might work out.

    Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz–Interview

  25. sarahhazel says:

    I think David can handle the electric guitar & the hair….but what about the eyeliner and tattoos??? 😯

  26. sarahhazel says:

    Salamahafifi ‏@Salamahafifi

    Wow David did A LOT of video blogs for us. Thank you @DavidArchie https://twitter.com/Salamahafifi/status/352084131489935360/photo/1

    For those who are interested…Gwen put up twitpics of the prints, packaging and tags by Roselyn for #CrushKidsCancer on Twitter. I was THRILLED to get my yesterday!

  29. Kimberly Ann says:

    sarahhazel rofl I would pay big bucks to see David as Pete Wentz.. not to mention cover his songs in concert.. LIVE!!! this one is new.. love this one!
    ha guyliner and tattoos!!

    oh and LOL David is too cute talking to the girls.. umm David is a room with all young ladies?!!!!!!!!!

  30. Kimberly Ann says:

    oops in a room full of young ladies!!

    bet anything that will be the thing when he comes back!!

  31. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–poor thing…he’s gonna have to face the Invasion Of The Mrs. Archuleta-Wanna-Be’s!!! 😮

  32. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–I kinda like the beat of their songs…though I haven’t paid much attention to the lyrics.

  33. sarahhazel says:

    Thanks, VaBch!

  34. Kimberly Ann says:

    sarahhazel fun music to be sure.. first heard it watching the hockey playoffs. bought it!

  35. Kimberly Ann says:

    ha looking for to all the fun when he comes back..
    just who will be
    Mrs David Archuleta?!

  36. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–my son has FOB CD’s….he likes Green Day too…has a similar vibe to their music.

  37. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–bet there’s gonna a crazy mosh-pit full of MA-W-B’s at his VIPs…haha!

  38. VaBeachArchie says:

    sarahhazel…”Invasion of the Mrs. Archuleta-Wanna-Be’s” lol Guess a lot of young ladies have him on their WISH LIST for boyfriend material! Who ever wins his heart IS ONE LUCKY GIRL!

    Thinking of his return…where to start? So many options for David. Wonder what he’ll do first? If things are in the works, which I hope is true…that would be GREAT! He’d hit the ground running! Taking advantage of any publicity coming from his return. Hurry 2014…..WANT TO KNOW!


  39. sarahhazel says:

    VaBch–hope there’s a lot publicity before and when he returns….need to wake up Archies who went Plan B and those who forgot about him.

  40. journey says:

    Cq, just in the way of information, the state of Utah is more like 50% Mormon. I sure would like to know what area that girl was from…I rarely ever hear David on the radio–maybe once every 6 months!

  41. sarahhazel says:

    journey–Really….that seldom???….hmmm….
    Anyway, that tweeter must have exaggerated quite a bit….LOL

  42. VaBeachArchie says:

    Holy moly! Simon Gerrans riding for Orica GreenEdge (AUS) in the Tour de France has such a baby face AND DIMPLES…but is 33! Guess that’ll be David down the road! FOREVER YOUNG!

    sarahhazel…Just can’t imagine fans forgetting about him…guess that didn’t get ODD! Think a lot have just taken a break from fangirling….will be back when things get started again! Or at least I hope that’s the case!

    Back to house cleaning my living room…..after my ceiling leak have to!

  43. sarahhazel says:

    I think this PIC deserves a *****WARNING***** 😯

    bel*canadianarchie ‏@bel1archie
    Everytime I open my fridge to get some foods I remember @DavidArchie ; hmmm his better than food :))
    LOL….refrigerator shrine???

  45. Kimberly Ann says:

    David is talented enough to make music that not only gives the message he wants to put forward and to be a hit. then it will be played all over not just in Utah and Asia.
    Imagine Dragons have done it.. so can David.

  46. sarahhazel says:

    Becca Rottersman ‏@beccarottersman

  47. sarahhazel says:

  48. sarahhazel says:

    MÏLD SALSA MARÏSSA ‏@mamitamarissa

    I just really want David Archuleta to know that I haven’t forgotten about him.

  49. Kimberly Ann says:

    sarahhazel isn’t that the case.. if there is anyone that does it is him.

  50. sarahhazel says:

    NIALL NOTICE ME ‏@AlexisHoranOk 5m

    Niall Follow Me Niall Follow Me ‏@andy_archie 4m
    @AlexisHoranOk @DavidArchie WT there is a lot of mormons!! lol Why him?

    @andy_archie @DavidArchie because he’s mormon attractive and famous.

  51. sarahhazel says:

    NIALL NOTICE ME ‏@AlexisHoranOk

    @andy_archie @DavidArchie There are a lot of mormon memes with Ryan Gosling, but he’s unactive mormon ;D
    Ryan Gosling is LDS???

  52. Kimberly Ann says:

    lol ‘was’ might be the key word.

  53. nora says:

    hi everybody, today is my wedding anniversary, just came back from dinner at the 99 restaurant, and what a great surprise as soon as we sat down I heard this music in the background, knew that voice right away, it Was David and they were playing CRUSH, just made my anniversary all the more special, nice finish for a nice day.

  54. sarahhazel says:

    Nora–Happy Anniversary! So nice of David to serenade you guys…haha! 🙂

  55. sarahhazel says:

    4 Days ‏@mistknbacon

    Listening to David Archuleta. Forgot how much I love him!! 🙂

  56. Kimberly Ann says:

    nora Happy Anniversary!! aww Crush.. I love when I hear it out!!

  57. nora says:

    thanks sarahhazel. I thought so too, if I could I would say thank you David, you made my day.

  58. nora says:

    Thanks Kim-I was so surprised to hear it, but I guess it was the special end to a special day. Just get so excited when I hear it outside too.

  59. Kimberly Ann says:

    haven’t heard Crush on the radio in a while but I have heard David’s songs in Harris Teeter, World Market, and Macys!

  60. nora says:

    I remember shopping for Christmas in Bath & Body Works an Melodies of Christmas came on, I got so excited I scared my daughter, and the Sales girls thought I was some crazy lady. I said oh my God that is David Archuleta, the little things that make us happy.

  61. cq#DA2014 says:

    I’ve never heard of a religion that is so bent on only marrying the same religion they are, it’s kind of weird how they talk about that as being the FIRST and a deal breaker if they fall in love with someone that, God forbid is not Mormon and isn’t willing to convert. Kind of sad the way I see it.

  62. sarahhazel says:

    nora–LOL…it’s so rare to hear his songs being played….so it’s like winning a prize when it happens….haha!

  63. Kimberly Ann says:

    Thanks for new chappie! 😀

  71. cq#DA2014 says:

    Ali, you are right not only Mormons feel that way, lol. It’s bad in every religion.
    My mom and dad would of rather I marry a nice Catholic boy, but respected and loved the man I chose even though he wasn’t Catholic and my church actually except him also. Was able to be marry and receive my sacrament of marriage. Although I really never felt that if I didn’t marry in the church, I would be less married in God’s eyes. Of course that’s just me.
