My kind of perfect brother

More info:

Back home for a bit helping my sister out a bit. Thanks everyone for all your help! Went to Washington DC and Arizona this last week and had a good ol’ time.


David Archuleta Gilbert Arizona Constitutional Fair Noche De Gala National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts Crohn’s Disease Washington DC Factor American Idol Christmas Tour vlog


This vlog really got to me. David dropping everything to rush home and help out his sister. His heartfelt appreciation for all the support, stories and info on Crohn’s that poured in from his fans. His excitement for the Christmas shows and events coming up. Maybe ‘cuz it’s my own brother’s birthday today and I know how much it means to know he’s in my corner.

Oh, and there’s this:

“I appreciate all your guys’s support, all the help you’ve been giving, and just coming out to the … it was fun seeing so many fans last week, and just for … being the way you guys are. It’s been great to see the kinds of fans I’ve been able to have.”

    I love brothers. <33333333

    And yes, David would be like the perfect brother (or husband, just saying lol). But seriously, the way he changes when he's talking about his family, and his love for them just spills out in every syllable & facial expression. It makes my heart swell up.

    I love this vlog. He is too much.

    *sniff* absolutely. Family is FOREVER!!!

    Too cute——-> the humming of “ummmmmmmm”

    Too exciting——–> what is next announcements?!

    Abanana *waves*

    This very sweet vlog got to me too. Couldn’t be more heartfelt, sincere and humbling. Yes, David is an absolutely amazing brother, son, friend, etc. etc. etc.
    His appreciation for his fans too is the best. “It’s been great to see the kinds of fans I’ve been able to have.” “Been able to have”….always ever so humbling.
    This beautiful humbling young man has some announcements coming up! Cannot….wait.
    (Need some more of those humming ummmms from David). 🙂

    • abanana77 says:

      Love the “been able to have” too. It’s small things like that that shows his mindset. He’s not just putting up an optimistic front, but he really does think like that and I find that so inspiring.

    • TOfan says:

      me three on “been able to have” … and I so agree that he’s not just trying to be optimistic, he genuinely feels that way.

      I just have to say that I tuned into X Factor about half way through (mostly ‘cuz I’ve missed Paula! lol) and caught that weird guy who dropped his pants then I turned it off… it wasn’t the pant-dropping that bothered me, though… what did bother me was that it was obvious the whole thing was staged for shock value, totally fake imho … and THAT’s one of the things I so appreciate about David, no fakery. *rant over* 🙂

    Love the Vlog. David is the best brother. He is so conscientious in every thing he does. He also knows how much his fans love him and thanks to all who made it to Arizona carrying wishes with them he is feeling the love. I’m so looking forward to the announcements, tour news. I pray that David always gets the help he needs managing things.

    • TOfan says:

      heidijoy, just wanted to say how much I love seeing your comments here and at not-so-David-friendly places … always giving a gentle plug about what our guy’s up to, always makes me smile!!!

      …aaaand, this is probably bogus but it gave me a chuckle (and I do love Look Around!):

      • Heidijoy says:

        Thanks Tofan! I feel the love here . I Plug David in not so friendly places with a deep breath and blinders on . (ha!)

    Upcoming big tour announcement is exciting!!!!!
    Look Around would make one great single by the way…whether bogus advertising or not. 🙂
    Oh and ditto to what refnaf said…..”ffffuhgettaboutit>>> That side bar pick is H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S”
    Love it…..David gettin’ down with his bad self. Heehee.

  8. TOfan says:

    So Live Nation has a David Archuleta page set up now so you can sign up to get email updates about touuuuuuur!!!!!

    … and anyone know what David & Michael Johns were doing in Syesha’s “shoot”? (@Syesha: “After the shoot with @DavidArchie & @michael_johns Miss you guys! :)”) Source)

    • Heidijoy says:

      This was taken after a photoshoot of American Idol alumni right around the time of the last American Idol finale. There were several group photos floating around. This appears to be one from Syesha’s camera after the official shoot. One fan said “I’d like to hand Syesha a sweater to put on” ha! and I agreed. David had a longer sleeve shirt or jacket on in the group photo. I know way too much information. ha!

    Hoping for lots of tour dates…….

  10. betsy says:

    Random, but I was watching the vlog at my daughter’s house the other day and she was listening from across the room. She asked me where he grew up. “Why do you ask”? “Because he has an accent, and I can’t place it. Just listen to how he says mom”
    Funny what other people hear.
    I guess I am just used to it.
    Carry on, I am NOT going to check my email alerts right now. Not at all. 🙂

    • TOfan says:

      That’s interesting, betsy. I’ve always thought D. had an accent (but he probably thinks the same for us up here, lol) … for example, the way he pronounces “tour” as “tore” … and I totally picked that particular word completely at random. 😆

  11. TOfan says:

    The “A Teen View” interview is finally up (oh good, now I can “unlike” on FB, bwahahaha):

  12. ray says:

    hi tofan

  13. hunnzy says:

    Just love him! hey fans if you havent yet voted here please do! They extended it to Tuesday! He was in first now second! Spread the word!

  14. TOfan says:

    Cool song “Moving Backwards” (where D’s tweet this a.m. came from):

  15. TOfan says:

    So @BenRector tweeted David back, saying “Love your voice” 🙂 🙂 🙂

    …aaaaaaand The Westbury, Dec. 1st appearance has now been posted on The Westbury theatre FB page, woooooot!!!!

    Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. HERE post removed, hmmmm … we need confirmed tour deets, eeek!

  16. refnaf says:

    Another cool artist to check out thanks to David!!
    Really hoping ALL the dates come out at once!!!!

  17. refnaf says:

    Have some things to announce tomorrow for those of you in parts of the U.S.!

    Woot, looks like the info is coming tomorrow….. He does not mention “parts of Canada” 😦

  18. betsy says:

    He would do so well in Toronto. I just know it.

  19. peppertara says:

    Wasn’t expecting David to make it up here on this tour either but….was secretly hoping anyway.
    That’s true Betsy, I know he would do very well in Toronto, no doubt and I also think he would do well in Vancouver…..just know peeps would come from all over. 🙂
    Well, all I can do is hope that he comes close enough to me, otherwise….may have to miss another Christmas show! Dang. I can just imagine fans all over the U.S. (and Canada) hoping he will appear in a city near them. On everyone’s wish list I’m sure! Also have a feeling that many will be travelling to see him if not.
    Yes, love how his tweet said “parts of the U.S.”, haha.

    Happy BD abanana. 😀

    Sounds like a fun tour. Woo hoo!

    Sorry no stops in Toronto or Vancouver. Both would be great venues. Will keep putting the positive intention out there in the biosphere and when it builds to a critical mass, shazam, it will happen. My new age magic at work. Hahaha.

    Only 2 months a a few days to first show.

    P.S. Snowangelzz R.O.C.K.!!!!!!!!!!!
