David Archuleta - DAC the Halls Christmas Concerts




You don’t have to look far to find good music just head to a David Archuleta concert that is if you can get tickets.

Just ask the Davis Arts Council at the annual “DAC the Hall’s Concert”, who sold out their December 12th matinee and evening performance in 45 minutes.

Oh what a rush that had to be but really this is no surprise to those of us who have followed David since his Idol days.  The minute you hear about any appearances your finger does the clicking on tickets, hotel reservations, flights, rental cars, shuttles and map quest road trip information.

I feel we are more efficient than the federal mail couriers, through rain, snow, sleet, storms and sold out tickets we still find a way to one of his events, and always loaded down with gifts, letters, packages and the occasional edible treats.  David has to be the most well fed and dressed artist to date.

His two year mission absence from the entertainment scene gave him the opportunity to find himself but as he has quoted “to lose himself” and focus on what was necessary for him to continue life’s journey.   He is always in the process of becoming, improving, changing and learning.

Many are inspired by him so it’s not unique to be a big fan.  But when the uniqueness sets in is in the heart, he can hold a very high place in your heart, soul and mind.  It’s a very personal thing to like him it’s a bit unfair, all of us focusing on him so much, so I cast my love lightly.

His voice is glowing along with his career, a most wonderful imaginable voice full of emotion.  Every song comes with meaning his angelic voice defines powerful. His voice is mesmerizing it’s a wonderful experience hearing him sing.

Yuletide anthems always seem to find a place in David’s  concerts and White Christmas was no exception, the number one selling song of all times, written by Irving Berlin.  It has been covered by everyone and while it is hard to live up to the inimitable Bing Crosby, David’s rendition captured a youthful, jazzy and beautiful sentiment of the song  And in doing so fully realizes the combination of joy and memory that makes Christmas what it is…….a celebration.

He gave an exquisitely polished powerful performance, he is an endangered species his voice has such engaging textures you believe every word he sings.  His voice should come with a warning.  Music is a beautiful thing, it allows you to get lost in other worlds and David took us away and we are not coming back.

David is like a bit of stardust fallen from the hand of God, love is what you give and his art of giving love is what showed with his audiences. These concerts were a rare example of paying a small amount for a million dollar show.

David Archuleta - Back in Concert 2015


                                                                           
                                                  
 

“He takes you out of your head and puts you into his heart.”

Recently making a comeback to pop music after his two year mission in Chile is David Archuleta a gifted singer who has been significantly missed.   Fans waited restlessly for almost four years to hear him perform, and in his own words has started a warm up concert tour. 
Many couldn’t help but wonder if a successful comeback was even possible, but after listening to his first four concerts it is apparent he hasn’t missed a beat, delivering as he only can, heartfelt music, even with a bout of flu which consisted of a cancellation half way through his second night in Utah.
David stepping into the spotlight once again is a reminder of a few artists that have taken time off, only to return to form or in some cases even better than they were before they left.  And in David’s case I believe he is better than he has ever been.   His tone is deeper, richer and more resonant than ever before and that pulls you in as a listener.

 David creates his own original interpretation of a song and creates an emotional response.  Passion and conviction is one of his most important achievements.  His songs are a portal for his personal style and individuality. 
 
David never takes himself out of the moment of his song or his audience.  A lot of singers are great musicians but they think they are the gift.  David knows, it not about him, it’s about what you do with the gift.  He gives joys to people, and that is his and our rewards.

David new album soon to be released will probably include a new co-written song “Numb” a song that is a personal introspective of his feelings today.
David’s upcoming new album has been long awaited and hopefully will give us an insight to his future direction in music and goals.

Success doesn’t happen in a single moment, the journey between inspiration and greatness is filled with a thousand small steps.  With these concerts in Idaho and Utah David has started the process of a great renewed career.

The Music goes Round and Round.....Whoa-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho.....And it comes out here



                                                                       


David Archuleta latest vocal performances have shown off his true talent, range and ability that goes beyond the limit and is truly unforgettable.  He has the most angelic voice you’ve ever heard with an emotive, expressive and divine tone. The richness and diversity of his voice is unmatchable.  He can teach the world to sing.

Since returning from his mission he conveys an even greater empathy of soul.  He is blessed with an incredible gift, an amazing entertainer and is always giving back.

Over the years his music has continued to be a part of my spirited journey.  Often times, the only way God could speak to my heart was through David’s music.

His voice stirs something deep in my spirit.  He has a most incredible range and power, yet can sing so softly and sweetly.  He sings with a great passion and no one can sing Be Still My Soul quite like David.  You can feel his enthusiasm even when you weren’t watching him.

His talent, his voice and his beautiful spirit are what make him a great singer.  He lives his life in testimony of God’s grace and unconditional love for him. God’s spirit shines through him while his music touches lives around him.

He has been faithful to share that God given gift with us, making him vulnerable to criticism, while sharing his own struggles.

I think his new songs are going to sound a bit different in this stage of life because of what he needs God for and what he leans on God for has changed.

I am hoping his new CD will give him the motivation to book more concerts and get back out on the road for a more regular basis, if that’s his desire.  Music will always be a huge part of who he is and may this be the start of more tours ahead.

This new CD will give him a chance to shine in front of thousands of new followers.  It is not clear how any release can live up to the hope that awaits this one, but David has promised he has been busy during the long wait crafting new songs for this new album.
Looking forward to David’s new album and seeing many of you at his concerts and other future events

The David Archuleta Music Scholarship



                                                                              



    Thank You.....David's Fans!                

 

A great big thank you for all your past support of THE DAVID ARCHULETA MUSIC SCHOLARSHIP for the past 5 years!

 

“Pay it forward” can inspire youth to realize their true potential to make positive changes in the world.

 
The pay it forward concept involves doing something good for someone in response to a good deed done for you.  When you pay it forward, however, you don’t repay the person who did something nice for you.  Instead you do something nice for someone else. It should be done with a selfless spirit which means you help another without hoping for repayment.

 
With this concept in mind, TDAMS is encouraging fans to “pay it forward” helping students at Murray High to pursue their dreams in music.  As fans let’s honor David Archuleta for his spirit and kindness as he has inspired many people to lead their life in meaningful ways.

 
The David Archuleta Music Scholarship will be awarded to outstanding musically inclined high school students who have demonstrated an achievement of dedication, aptitude, perseverance and of course music.  Won’t you please join together to help gift these students at Murray High with a scholarship?  A small gift can make a difference and change the lives of many.

David Archuleta - RootsTech 2015


I have been traveling since I attended RootsTech 2015 and just returned a couple of days ago and wasn't able to post my thoughts on David's performance until now.  Late, but never forgotten!


                                                        

RootsTech  2015 was an incredible success, and we know that it was the individual experiences and stories that made it so, as well as many inspiring speakers and performances such as David Archuleta and Studio C at the closing finale.  It was a striking finale to this year’s conference.

Life is about challenges, struggles, inspiration and beauty, and the beauty of David Archuleta’s voice touches us in a place that’s as personal as the place from which his voice was issued.  The ecstasy of surrender he inspires and the response he can arouse once we’ve recovered our senses is astounding.  His vocals keep getting more precise and more powerful.  Without heart, there is not art and David has both.  When he sings he lifts the spirit of his audience, he makes lyrics come alive.

A great singer is somebody who makes you believe what they’re saying, and you always believe David. His new song/video in Spanish “Nunca Pense” filmed in Costa Rica themed Family History to inspire Latino Youth’s to become more involved.

David also did a cover “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake a comedy Lip Sync “Jump” by Van Halen, “Don’t Run Away” and the ever popular “Glorious”. 

Prior to the night’s closing finale a signing was schedule to meet David Archuleta and Studio C and the crowd of fans were lining up three hours before the schedule time.  Many fans were turned away as time was running out as the finale was schedule around 5:15 PM.

Meeting David Archuleta is like spun sugar, you taste it and then it’s gone and you wonder when you’ll experience it again.  Excitement filled the Foyer as David sat and signed autographs and the closer you got to him in line a feeling of awe consumed you. 

A relaxed and confident young man performed that evening and his talent, spirit, and love of faith commanded the stage and won the hearts of all who attended.
