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.

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! 😛 😛
Isn’t that absolutely sweet of David!!
Well… I think FOD deserves every bit of that Sweet Wish for having been so loyal, supportive, enduring, tenacious, loving of David.! 😀 while many David-fansites have long lost their way or sparkle. I salute thee too FOD!!
