I seriously considered ending my post right there because I have no words for tonight.
What follows may not actually be words but mere animal shrieks and primal screams from the extraterrestrial embodiment of beneficence that is Master David Archuleta.
I don’t know if it was the hometown love, the collaborator support or the full moon, but David took himself to new places tonight in Franklin.
He certainly took all of us to new places.
I wept during Say Me, but I can’t articulate why because it bypassed my brain and went straight to my heart.
I set up my phone to take a video just because I love the song and before I could consciously recognize the wonderment that was happening, my eyes welled up with tears and I was a mess.
Forevermore was named a favourite by peeps who’d never heard the song before and Higher Ground. Oh My God. And I mean that as an actual prayer of thanks. Here’s a peek at just the ending alone captured by the lovely and amazing Pastel.
Anyway, more later when I’ve had a chance to process all this but just had to share.
Feeling so blessed right now to be a fan of this remarkable human.
And to share with all of you what that means.❤️❤️❤️❤️
The songwriters and producers must’ve been in awe last night at what David unleashed live… I know I was.
And I’d like to extend a personal thank you to Trent Dabbs, who was there tonight, and who co-wrote some of my favourite songs on Postcards in the Sky (Numb, OTIS, Say Me) for talking David off the ledge of possibly quitting music, and instead encouraging him to write about how he was feeling. Thank youuuuuu!!!!!!!!
I just can’t stop thinking about the show last night. How happy and confident David was. How appreciative of all the support… from fans and peers. How we get a bunch of shows in one: Pop Star David, Rocker David, Groovy Soul David, Comedian David, and Inspirational Speaker David. All wrapped up in one precious package.
He’s an arena-caliber talent who we get to see in these intimate venues… for now. #feelingsoblessed
Praise be, the illustrious Donna Periscoped the amazingness that was this evening.
My vids and pics aren’t great but I’ll post because I can 🙂
Love you, Miss Tina! 😭😭😭😭😭
And the Shellster does it again, what a shot!
VIDEOOOOS!!!!! (Thank you, Divine Ms. M.!!!!!)
When David gets verklempt, so do we, am I right?
My love for this song grows with each passing day, and live, alsjsjdhdgdgsgfzfz
He Lives in You (thank you, Shelley!❤️)
