The lovely and amazing @betsyjane25 tweeted a link to this vid last night and it was just what I needed to see, can’t really explain why.
What I can tell you are some of the random thoughts that ricocheted around my brain as I watched it… thoughts like:
Omigosh I forgot about this videoooooo!!!! … how on Earth can she sing while David freakin Archuleta’s playing the piano?????? … wow he’s really playing, so focused and serious… is that a Josh Bradley jacket? … she’s actually pretty good … yay, she stopped!! … go, David, go! … aww he’s trying to help her remember the words …. eeeeeeeeeee HE’S SINGING …. HE’S SINGING ADEEEELLLLLEEEEEE … asdlfkasjdflkasjdflkajflkajlfj *turns up volume* asd;lfksdjfksdajfasldkfsdjfksdjfkak “Yesterdaaay was the tiiiime of our liiiiiiiiiiiiiives” … yes it was, David … Feb. 2008 to March 2012 to be exact … ***SOBS***… girl with the striped shirt I’m sure you’re wonderful but PLEASE SIT DOWN NOW …. why is she not sitting down???? … he is way too nice… who could not love him, I mean, seriously … all those lucky peeps just hanging out jamming with The Archuleta nbd … random singing and playing during NA breaks … no wonder he loved it there … *SOBS MORE* … omigosh there’s Jasmine, playing it cool, looking not interested in the amazingness going on … just like Anya… ya right, hahaha … what does he need to do to impress her?

How about you guys? What went through your mind while you watched it?
More info from Miki Hahn (girl singing):
Killing time on the set of TV5’s “Nandito Ako”
Impromptu singing session, I was so starstruck that he was playing the piano that I could barely sing. haha
Thank you to the people who recorded this when this happened. haha
BTW,I was the stylist of David and the whole cast on the show.
Can I just say that despite his enormous talent, David is one of the nicest, most humble and down to earth people that I have met in my entire life.
I’m really proud to say that I have become a true fan.
