Wow, what a year.
So many David-related things I never thought we’d see.
This. (D’s at 3:23)
Some very swank outfits.
A written blog early last year that I understand much more reading it again now. Especially after hearing David talk about many of the same things in the intros to some of his songs on tour.
An original Spanish song I LOVE and was thrilled to hear live. Mas, por favor. (No idea if that means what I want it to mean. 🙂 )
The loss of dear @jenleighbarry. Still in shock over that one. Jen, you will always be missed.
DAVID SURFING. I REPEAT. DAVID SURFING.
An actual tour-ish poster with actual tour-ish dates on it. *be still my heart*
Not a blog but we’ll take it.
David connecting with his inner Hobbit.
David sitting on a tractor waiting for fans to find him for free tickets. Not gonna lie. Still a little too not over this one. So many questions… Did he wonder if anyone would show up? Did he pretend-drive it while making tractor engine sounds? If so, can we get video?
A brand new song. Not just that but a KILLER new song. Am I allowed to at least say the title? Numb. *waits for takedown police*
And THE SHOWS!!!! After four loooooong years, SOOOOOO worth the wait. David sounding better than ever, all chatty and sassy and bantery… REALLY want to do over every moment.
This vlogger has some great clips from the St. George show (starting at 4:26), really good audio:
Even the show that shall not be named… Layton. Though it was terrifying to sit there and hear David lose his voice… for how long, we didn’t know… looking back, I feel blessed to have been there to cheer him on and support him when he likely needed it more than at any other show. Ever. I’ll never forget hearing the whole crowd sing Glorious for him, with him, as a gift to him. Beautiful.
therealnewangel’s Spicy Nacho come to life….
Friday show for Luz de las Naciones was a fun one! It's cool filling up that huge conference center with a tribute to mi querido Chile! :). Wearing the huaso (Chilean version of a cowboy) attire so everyone can get a feel for la cultura chilena. 😉. One more show tomorrow! Come on out for it! #vivachile #luzdelasnaciones #dondeestanmischilenos #chile #huaso #sivasparachile
Actual radio interviews. What the wHaT??
The Prayer vid, ‘natch, but also acoustic Riu Riu Chiu. LOVE.
And David not just acknowledging fans but thanking us. From the heart. A bunch of times. Even on video!
Don’t know about you but this original song we also got this year was a highlight for me. Had it on repeat for quite a while, tbh.
Certainly never thought we’d see a viral video! No not just The Prayer… this one (up to 265,000 views and counting 🙂 ). And I’m glad he cleared up that he’s laughing not crying. ‘Cuz he knew he’d get letters.
Could you, in your wildest dreams, thought any of that would happen? Not I, my friends. Makes you wonder what 2016 will bring, doesn’t it?
How about you guys, what are you hoping for??
HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
BONNE ANNÉE! FELIZ AÑO NUEVO!!!
Don’t wait till next year to read the lovely @rhiminee’s amazing Top 5 Live Perf. Post HERE! (And I’m not just saying that because it includes *shhhh* Numb audio!!! AND my faraway Trashin’ the Camp vid made the cut and I agree with every single word about that dweeeoppwedooooo gem! MORE, David, MORE!!!!)
Also love this:
“I feel like him singing with Vocal Point started some kind of acapella group battle for him because you notice that Pentatonix didn’t post about meeting David until after David posted about meeting & performing with Vocal Point and wearing their VP hat in random places and suddenly PTX is like WELL WE’LL JUST SEE ABOUT THAT. I think this is the plot for Pitch Perfect 3: Aca-Battle for David Archuleta’s Soul. And I’m ok with that.”
LOVE this! David melding his playful and pondering sides… and looking happy. May your balloons never pop, David.
Anyone else already worn out from all the celebrating? Haha. I've been reflecting on this past year and everything I've learned. I took time today to organize some New Years resolutions. I categorized them into categories like work, spiritual, family, Personal… Reflecting back on 2015 has helped me gain perspective on where to take life with the new year to come. I'm grateful for every moment that builds me to be the person I am each day. What 2015 experiences are you grateful? Have you taken time to write down some goals for 2016? If not take the time to write them down! Happy New Year everyone! #2016 #HappyNewYear #felizañonuevo #newyearsresolutions #goals #grateful
