From Wincy of Team Archie:
So we met someone’s daddy this week at the hotel of Manila…we had a great talk with him…he’s very nice to tell us that something will happen next week…and that we, all the archies fans have been waited for a very longggg time!
The most important information is that Zero Gravity (live version) and other 2-3 songs will be released sometime in the next week! Those live version will be from some of his solo concerts and Manila concert too. And it will be released like the AOL session (EP?)! Aaaaagggghh! When is next week coming? Save up your pennies (or dollars in this case) ‘coz don’t say I didn’t warn you! Guess I’ll have to give up my Caramel Mochachino for the week – but anything for David!
Kylie & Justine’s Manila Recap!
Here are excerpts from their recaps:
Kylie: Even now, reality hasn’t hit me fully that I just flew over 1534*2 miles, spent $$$$ and braved the unknowns in a foreign city to catch David Archuleta live in concert. But I did!! I really did all that. What has David Archuleta done to me? It’s so uncharacteristic of me to do such thing. The whole journey was a dream-like reality and I felt I was spilt into 2 beings simultaneously – one watching from the mirror and the other in the mirror.
Justine: Warning: This is going to be loooooong. Forgive me in advance. I rant mindlessly. Oy. Money-lah. Wow. Did the whole experience really happen? Yes. Yes, it did. Though everything seemed to happen in fast-forward motion –especially the concert– it was definitely an unforgettable experience; and certainly one of the best David experiences I’ve ever had (since there weren’t that many to begin with). But wow. What. An. Experience.

Davids to Come Back to Philippines for a commercial?
According to Bernard Lomo (don’t know the exact spelling of the name).
He was in the Victory Party of Manny Pacquiao given by Chavit Singson (father of the Producer of David Archuleta-David Cook Concert) at Corinthian Gardens. As we all know, David Cook and David Archuleta went to this said party.
According to him the 2 Davids of ‘American Idol (season 7)’ are going to come back here in Philippines, after their successful back-to-back concert, to do a commercial.
I still don’t know if they already signed the contracts.
Errr.no idea how accurate this is but..if it is, its sure one loooong journey to do a commercial lol.
Davids and Bands!

The David-David Concert Experience
MANILA, Philippines – Being an “American Idol” fan, I can honestly say that there has been no season in the past, or present, as good as the show’s seventh season. So imagine my excitement and delight upon hearing that both David Cook and David Archuleta would be coming to Manila for a back-to-back concert. I assure you, the feeling was insurmountable.
When the day finally came, my friends Yumi and Chikai and I were extremely excited, and arrived at the venue a bit over four hours before the concert was scheduled to start, despite the fact that we had reserved seats. So we strolled around the mall for hours and grabbed a quick dinner before heading down to the concert grounds.
Once we located our 3,000++ peso-worth seats, I watched in awe as the venue slowly started filling up. I even spotted fans that flew over from Malaysia and Singapore in the crowd. It was quite a scene.
All the excitement of over 40,000 people packed in one venue was an amazing thing to witness. But nothing beat seeing the house lights start to dim, and smoke beginning to fill the stage, feeling a soft hush overcome the crowd, and then suddenly, hearing a burst of applause and a roar of enthusiasm as David Archuleta took the stage.
Archie pumped up the crowd with his hits such as “Crush,” “A Little Too Not Over You,” and “Touch My Hand.” He also covered a few songs of other artists like Robbie Williams’s “Angels” and Vanessa Carlton’s “Thousand Miles,” both of which he performed behind the keyboards.
The audience loved every last inch of his performances and you could tell Archie, too, was enjoying himself. He sang his heart out and sounded incredible, just as pitch-perfect as the record. He jumped and danced around on stage and his energy never swayed.
Unfortunately, time does not stand still, and after a dozen songs, Archie’s set was over. That was the sad news, but the good news was, David Cook was next!
More of them keep popping up! Go to Yanweiz or Rae’s youtube channel for close ups of D in action!

Thanks for the pictures , Zulaikha!

Archuleta Remembers Idol Finale
Tonight Adam Lambert and Kris Allen will take the “American Idol” finale stage. It’s a stage David Archuleta knows well; after all, he was there last year. Although he wound up losing the “Idol” crown to David Cook, Archuleta still has great memories of what it was like to reach the “Idol” finale.
Listen to the audio clip HERE!
David Talks American Idol
David Archuleta, who came second on last year’s American Idol has told MTV News that he was ‘fine’ about not winning the hit US show.
Archuleta who came second to season 8 champion David Cook claimed: “I thought if I win then great but if I don’t win then that’s totally fine. I wasn’t worried about it at all I was worried about performing my best…”
The Idol star, who has already enjoyed huge success in America following his stint on the reality TV show added: “My dream wasn’t to be the winner of American Idol; my dream was to be performing and what I am doing right now.”
David, whose self entitled album charted at number 2 in the US Billboard chart also said: “The show is a great way of getting your name out there, that’s what the show allowed me to do. It opened up a lot of doors and is a great platform.”
See, it’s not all about the winning. Let’s hope this year’s finalists Adam Lambert and Kris Allen take that advice on board.
A Tale of Two Davids
Police sources and organizers pegged the crowds that gathered to watch the David Cook–David Archuleta show last Saturday night at 50,000. It’s not hard to believe the number. From my seat somewhere in the VIP section, I could see people of all age groups waiting in breathless anticipation for the show: entire high school or college barkadas, mostly female, but with a few male companions in tow; full families, including kids as young as six or seven; white-haired, crinkly-faced grandmas sitting next to screaming pre-pubescents in their porma best; couples canoodling with each other and the occasional solitary concert-goer trying hard to enjoy the show by his or her lonesome
