“Oops sorry .. I forgot my tie today. I remembered my socks though … “
“You mean, I have to sing ALL those songs now?”
“Oh si, si senor .. you are David Archuleta, no??”
What a beautiful picture! Where is he?
Was that taken in Mexico where he is rumoured to be singing and the feature Speaker at the Guadalajara Youth Conference?
The vibes I get from the pic are almost as exhilarating, and as calming too, as listening to David’s singing voice (let’s not try to understand the contradiction here – it is what it is – a case of the archu-enigma which we contracted since 2008 ;) )
Or has the bicycle taken David to a beautiful land “somewhere only he knows” to “make him feel complete”… a “simple thing” to give him some much needed relaxation to produce creative juices, eh David?
Coincidentally, a couple of us have taken up cycling too the past 2 weeks. But of a different kind. Our pic looks neither exhilarating nor calming. Just exhausting, I guess. Emulating David? No … just trying to keep calm while huffing and puffing waiting for that special music ;)
There is something sacred about seeing David at the piano, singing and writing music. (To me, anyway ;) )
(We were planning to crop off the bottom-half of the pic … you know .. socks with bermudas .. but then, you guys already know he is a little lost nowadays about what’s “in” and what’s definitely “out” .. to forgive is divine, as they say … so the socks with the bermudas sort of stayed .. :(
(Besides, we rather like the manly hairy legs – kinda contrasting nicely with the baby face :D
We are grateful to Andrew Lipinski and Joe Cruz for their IG and tweets. We are rather peeved though that David does not tweet about it himself. Instead, he sends us This! – he is almost like teasing us by holding back his music news. Hmph!
Anyway, talking about food, I must post this hilarious vid. Fun!
“I had a great opportunity recently to choreograph a beautiful couple’s first dance. Rich & Mietra weren’t sure what they were going to do, but they were sure they wanted a dance. I taught them a simple dance that made them feel comfortable and exited to perform. Not only was their dance beautiful but they had DAVID ARCHULETA sing live! It all came together beautifully and I was honored to be a part of it.”
It’s great to know that David sang at the wedding of his childhood friend, Mietra, lending his voice to enrich the atmosphere of love and commitment during her wedding, something we know for sure, is without doubt.
But what is bothering me is, I wish they had mentioned the name of the song he sang.
Or, even better, make a vid. Nah .. that’s asking too much .. it’s a private affair afterall. And we are just snoopy fans always wanting MORE .. as usual ;) :D
Left to my imagination of choosing a David-song for Mietra’s beautiful first dance, and left with a Sunday morning with nothing else better to do, I found this vid. :)
I wonder if the happy couple were choreographed to dance this way. ;)
David to headline the BYU Spectacular October 8 and 9!
Yes, that’s the gist of the news release from the Brigham Young University, not yet confirmed by David’s OS but buzz-worthy enough for the Archies!
We are excited because of various reasons –
– he is getting back into a pattern of Live performances.
– he is probably directing his audienceship to younger people his age, which I think, is a good thing in the long run. Hey, the student body is about 30,000 and the Marriott Centre has a seating capacity of 19,000, no small deal! :)
– he has not lost his interest in performing Live; that he is using his homeground to “practise” (no discourtesy meant to his home state :) ) and regain his confidence.
– he is keeping our hope alive, that he will soon be ready to move outside Utah to gradually and surely cover further venues in other parts of the US … other countries … other continents … like Asia??? ;)
– and of course in the meantime, we look forward to some videos of this Spectacular! :)
“We’ve already sold over 1,500 tickets just in the first few hours,” said Robert Sullivan, director of ticketing, marketing and communications for the event.
“There’s been a really positive response, and we’re anticipating a big crowd for both performances, “We’re really thrilled that people are so excited about it.”
