Madilyn Paige’s record is out and one of the songs features our David – titled ANYMORE. Most of us have yet to hear it, including moi. Frankly, I get much more excited when I look forward to David singing SOLO. (And Solo + A Capella would be a serious bonus treat!)
We will post that song when we figure out how 😉 Meanwhile, we found a video featuring David’s AIMING FOR HOPE for a tv drama series on Network: American Broadcasting Company.
It iis an American medical drama television series based on the 2013 award-winning South Korean series.
Shaun Murphy, a young autistic surgeon who has savant syndrome and survived a troubled childhood, relocates from a quiet country life to join the surgical unit at the prestigious San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital.
Besides the song having caught my attention, the young good doctor bears a great resemblance to our young good singer. 😀
The Good Doctor (Aiming for Hope – David Archuleta)
A Youtube comment: “Öne of my favorite singers together with my favorite show. You did a great job with this, thank you”
Moving Forward. Even if David says that he wants to be “taken back in time”, he is really “moving forward”. Moving forward to being where he was before. Where he was comfortable and being himself.
He doesnt want to dwell on what went wrong. There is no time for regrets.
He is asking for 2nd chances.
He realises he was right all the time. That he should not have been distracted by irrelevancies or be deflected.
What a clever way of putting it 😀
I’m not just verbalising those words. I genuinely believe the truth in that. I’ve been thinking of excactly the same truth for myself.
Thank you, David, for authenticating it! 😀
Love this CRUSH kid
Despite the 10 years that have gone by .. despite the faint hint of wrinkles (!! joke!!) .. despite the ripened maturity and more mellow buoyancy he demonstrates (?? really??) .. I feel the passion he exudes from his voice in this stripped down version is beautifully augmented and more profoundly felt. He is no longer just singing sweet and lovable. He means Business!! 😀
Watch out for the 346 mark and the brief 405 mark. I thought I’ve always preferred to listen to the lower register of his voice when he croons into my ear with that smoky timbre, but this! – the sudden heightening of the intensity of his voice blew me to some sort of ever-lasting heaven. ♥
I’m second and third guessing David is busy behind the scenes writing new music or preparing for his Christmas songs and I’m grateful he is taking the time off to celebrate his 10 years with this – our ever-endearing CRUSH. ♥
‘Cause I believe that we can make this into something that will last, last forever. FOREEEVEEERR!!!
Good tributes to CRUSH, David!
It’s the most memorable, most enduring, most precious happening song everrrr…!! 😀
We were literally CRUSHED!
The 1st time we set eyes on him in KL
The first time we sang for him
The 1st time we were hit by his real magic
(spontaneous .. unplanned.. the joy of CRUSH just burst forth from us in KL)
We just had to welcome him into our presence HIS WAY with CRUSH! ♥
W O W !!
Something I have been doing on and off the last few years is therapy. I decided this year I would be more consistent with it. This week I had a smashing therapy session. As you can see, I managed to smash quite a bit. 👨🔧 I’ve met with chiropractors, kiniseologists, etc and they would all say the same thing: “You hold a lot of anger and fear in your shoulders.” I was a little disconnected with myself, unaware of what I was holding in. Well, I met with my chirokinetictherapist who loosened it up a bit and I suddenly started getting major road rage and angry in general. I met with her a couple weeks later and asked her what had happened. She said the energy is ready to come out I had held in. I thought by letting it slide it would go away. I had no idea I was holding so much in and not letting go of. Boy, did I surprise myself lol. I’m keeping some of these as a souvenir. As I began I felt guilty. I thought letting myself get angry and aggressive would hurt someone. My therapist asked “did you hurt anyone in this process?” I said, “no… but maybe I sent them negative energy.” She said “your energy went into these objects. You haven’t hurt anyone. You gave your energy somewhere to go and leave you and stop holding it inside.” I still have a ways to go, but I am grateful I have begun my journey. God has made me stronger from my experiences, even in the pain, but He also sent Christ, and strong ways are through shouting, physical exercise, punching bag, etc. It was time for a smashing session. I didn’t realize how much I had held in. I thought by letting it slide it would go away. I had no idea I was holding so much in and not letting go of. Boy, did I surprise myself lol. I’m keeping some of these as a souvenir. As I began I felt guilty. I thought letting myself get angry and aggressive would hurt someone. My therapist asked “did you hurt anyone in this process?” I said, “no… but maybe I sent them negative energy.” She said “your energy went into these objects. You haven’t hurt anyone. You gave your energy somewhere to go and leave you and stop holding it inside.” I still have a ways to go, but I am grateful I have begun my journey. God has made me stronger from my experiences, even in the pain, but He also sent Christ, His Son so that I don’t have to hold onto it. I can hand it over to Him and heal from what and who have hurt me; heal from things I’ve disappointed myself with and couldn’t let go of. As Tasha Cobbs says, “There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain..” And I am a recipient of that truth. “I feel the chains falling” And I’m ready for a change. Don’t be afraid to feel broken. A muscle needs to break down before it grows. Don’t be afraid of therapy. There is healing when we ask for help. Don’t be afraid to fall on your knees and cry out in prayer. God listens and comes to the broken-hearted and humbled child. #therapy #thoughts
I’m posting this pic for this blog because I feel it describes David’s angst and anxiety as in his message. I can hardly believe he is talking about himself and not someone else.
This must be the most powerful and revealing self-analysis I’ve read from him and on him. Did we EVER think David Archuleta had been going through this perturbation? I did suspect for some time that he is not the ever-sunny person many fans seem to believe he is. But this is a totally different level – a different depth.
For David to come out with this truth is a move of great courage and I admire him for it.
“Don’t be afraid to feel broken”, he says. Words of inspiration. He is not afraid to face the truth and do something about it. He has always been a role model to many. Now we realise that role is not just based on his outward cheerful disposition, but also the fact that he is very REAL. ♥ ♥
That was taught to me by my grandmother! 😛 😛
