The title is not written out of disrespect, but out of my own ignorance.
I had never known how the word “Mormon” was spelt until I heard the word “Archuleta” – which, during the first days of AI Season 7, I found equally difficult to spell and remember. Those days are gone (of cos 😛 ) and I now spell and pronounce both words equally well, to say the very least. 🙂
Much as I would like to claim that I know quite a bit about that guy called “David Archuleta”, I am still uneducated and unenlightened as to what the Mormons stand for. My only “knowledge” of them had been instilled into me by the rantings of my dear Archies during some of the most difficult times, that these people are the main perpetrators of our not getting our full dose of our beloved idol and was the cause during the past few years, of taking most parts of him away from us.
Perhaps this latest film about the Mormons can clear up possible certain bias and prejudices that we ourselves have and make us feel better about “letting go a little” and “letting David be David”. Peace. (I have been chanting my own daily Tibetan mantras. 🙂 )
If not, we still have this lovely, lovely song to wake us up from our own “smallness”. 😉
What a Glorious feeling – the song has already more than a million views within a week. 🙂
The vid of Glorious was shown during the screening at the Premiere of Meet The Mormons
(How David must have cringed into his seat while watching it! lol! 😀 )
David looking so happy at the Meet The Mormons premiere!
( so infectious his smiles are!)
And a vid of David talking about the film at the premiere
“Well done, young man! I am going home to download the song!”
“Yes, ma’am, it IS David Archuleta you’re looking at! 🙂 “
The excitement of seeing him is palpable!
Everyone wants a piece of David!
.. including Marie and David Osmond!
(Seems like Mormons have beautiful smiles! 🙂 )
Well, now that your heart has simmered down a little with the great news of Glorious, go listen to it quietly for the umpteenth time (you HAVE downloaded it, haven’t you?! 😡 ) and participate in the Trending Party! 🙂
