Okay, so this unplugged David Archuleta mall show had virtually zero publicity, David only tweeted about it the day before and the event isn’t even listed on his official site … um, NO events are listed on his official site … and yet throngs of people swarmed the mall to see him.
One tweeter reported “I survived! Yikes that was craziness!!! I’m so sorry for those people who were super rude and crazy running after him and laying on his limo” and another “@DavidArchie Im sorry I cried infront of you! 😛 but thanks for saying to not cry & also putting on an amazing concert” … crying girls?? people laying on his limo???
Of course, because he WOWED each and every person there with his incredible awesomeness … I know, I know, as he always does … and yet even this radio station probably is not playing his songs. What gives?
As emmegirl said at the end of the last thread, “Just watched the TOSOD twitvid. These songs acoustically… how he does this and produces such amazing results is beyond me. How many singers could do these songs (incl My Hands, Crush etc) acoustically and have them sound like that? Am I just out of the loop (maybe, because I follow no one else but him), but do other singers do all of their songs acoustically like this, and if they do, do they sound like that? Just wondering…“
No, they definitely do not. I happened to be reading an ew.com article about Taylor Swift’s huge album sales and the comments from many of her ardent fans included remarks like, “Her voice isn’t the greatest but…” and “You can tell she’s been trying to improve her singing!” … and these are her fans!
Not to pick on Taylor, I think she’s a smart, savvy, talented young lady, but comments like those do make me question whether singing talent even matters anymore in the “business” side of the business.
Well, it matters to us … and it sure as heck matters to David. And everyone else? It’s their big, big, BIG loss.
*mini-rant finito* … back to our good place….
