What is the next best thing after David Archuleta?
I would like to think that it is his cracking fanbase – small by comparison to some – but tenaciously loyal. There is a spiritual “something” underneath the apparent loyalty which is touching.
Many are no longer mere listeners of his music or make up part of the audience of his concerts. It seems like they have become part of his team, his cheerleaders – promoting him through social media .. organising trending parties .. keeping his name out there .. organising pre-show fan dinners to help keep the fandom alive and intact at Denver and Boise .. arranging ticket donations .. scouring social media for any info and pics for the benefit of other fans …
It was through a besotted fan that we found out for sure that David is TRULY getting his album together! 🙂
“The other night I got to meet David Archuleta one of the nicest dudes from American Idol season 7 while I was working! It was a pleasure meeting you@davidarchie! Good luck on your new album! #AmericanIdolSeason7#DavidArchuleta #Hopdoddy #cool #celebrity #NewportBeach#FashionIsla”
“Good luck on your new album!” he says – music to our ears indeed!
The faithfuls are still steadfastly keeping tabs on Crush reviews, which, incidentally, is more than a whopping 53 million. The Prayer is nearing 2 million. Glorious is approaching 5 million. And all this info is being off and on reported on fansites to keep the fans interested and involved.
Having a large number of fans instrumentalises the gaining of fame for artistes until “the next big thing” comes along. But a loyal fanbase takes the artiste to becoming a more professional singer; his longevity in the industry is more assured.
Everything his faithful Archies (who David now refers to as “friends” 🙂 ) do is generous and brave with precious time spent and energy relentless. The way I see it is this very loyal fanbase is not going anywhere. “Friends” do stick together. 😉
This little bambino/bambina is obviously one of them! 🙂
I’m posting this pic of him because I like it. I like his elegant profile … I like his hair which I know is hiding under the cap (even though it’s not very apparent nowadays since he won’t let it grow till we can see the full glory of it 😡 ) … I like his neck (the inside of which houses his mesmerising vocal cords 😉 ) … well, you can tell I’m from that loyal fanbase too. 🙂
David, I believe, is beginning to realise the fact that a loyal fanbase, how ever small, contributes much to an integral part of the success he wants since he is resuming his M&G’s in his March concerts. And I see much buzz within this cracking fanbase who has stayed and I suspect, will always stay.
This pic – I would like to interpret it as David feeling happy and grateful (hand on heart) that he has this wonderful team rooting (and working 😉 ) for him.
