Well not merely a dream. More like a resolve really to achieve something, maybe miraculous, but not entirely out of the realms of the possible. After hearing David sing live in Malaysia for a short 20 minutes at Sunway, there’s this nagging feeling of unfulfillment ; a hunger not quite satiated and still raring for more, much more, of the same.
So I have this dream of bringing David back to Malaysia for a full concert. “Bringing?,” you may ask. That’s quite a bold stance to adopt almost as if I have the actual means to get him to Malaysia. Well I feel I have the most important asset to draw upon in my quest and that is you, you and you. Yes dear AAMers and other fans of David out there who left Sunway that day thankful for the opportunity to hear him live; shouting yourself hoarse and feeling the pounding of your heart and the rush of blood through your system. We all left Sunway that day breathless and high from excitement. It was a good feeling wasn’t it? Some of you managed to relive that day at Manila but many of us didn’t get to enjoy the experience of a full David concert. So the purpose of my post – a petition.
This time our petition must be wider in scope and more ambitious in objectives. We are targetting 5000 names this time and the dateline is end August to gather that number. I don’t think it’s too difficult a target to achieve judging from the size of the crowd at Sunway in April. The petition is just one aspect of this project.
We are also going to create a video consisting of stills and video clips from fans with messages expressing their desire for David to come back for a full concert. So we need your help here in providing photos of you and/or your friends or video clips that are not more than 30 secs long . Group shots would be ideal as we ‘re aiming for volume here. The more the merrier.
Also we need to design a mock poster promoting David’s concert here as if it is really going to happen. If we have a clear and tangible vision of what we trying to achieve than the easier it is to realize that dream. For this we need your artistic and graphic expertise to design the poster with which we can ‘promote’ the idea to media, other fansites , concert promoters, radio and David’s team itself.
Yes we will be sending all these material to Jive, Azoff Management and David himself to let him see the dedication of his followers here. That’s the ultimate audience that we want to target with this exercise. So please lend your support by logging on to this link : David Archuleta concert in Malaysia and submit your signatures. Add it to your own blogs so that your readers can lend their support as well. Please submit your graphic ideas, photos and video clips as soon as you can.
An impossible task you may think; a bridge too far but a lot of wonderful things have been achieved by daring to dream. A journey of a thousand miles must necessarily start with that first important step. We must take that leap of faith that together we can achieve this. Failure is not an option.
Update 15th June 2009: Woot! we’ve logged more than 140 names so far. Thanks guys for signing the petition. Keep ’em coming! 🙂
