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.

From @MirandaTacchia:

My weekend is best summed up by a drawing of @DavidArchie fans. Enjoy! twitpic.com/6n7kpy

Read Miranda’s blog post below:

I normally don’t write much on my blog because I just like posting artwork and calling it a day, instead of rambling unnecessarily. But for this one, I really wanted to share the story behind it…

My boyfriend, Ben started playing bass for David Archuleta back in April of this year, and we flew to Gilbert, AZ this weekend because David was headlining the 2011 Constitution Fair, an annual event held in the city of Gilbert. I was really thrilled to finally get to see a live performance because I had never been to one of his shows, only a rehearsal just before they toured Asia back in July– So this was a brand new and exciting experience for me! Danielle and I (Steven, the drummer’s wife) got to hang out on stage during the sound check and sat front row during the show. Obviously, we had a great time. One of the things I really enjoyed was watching the younger, die-hard Archie fans. They exhibited the whole spectrum of emotion, from sheer glee to hysterical screams and sobs. They were so devoted! After I managed to get backstage again (Getting passed security was a whole other story in itself, which I may have to make a separate post about later on!) we stayed in the trailer a little while before it was time to go back to our hotel. The way it worked was the band got in the van first and pulled up near the barricade where the fans gathered, then David ran out to give them one last smile and wave goodbye, hopped in the van with the rest of the band, and we sped off. It was surreal being inside that van but still being a spectator. It was an experience I’ll never forget… And a story I had to make into a drawing.

From Mindful of Music:

David Archuleta sings his heart out on patriotic songs at Constitution Fair

Last night, David Archuleta headlined the Constitution Fair in Gilbert, Arizona. Though David sang a full set, he first came out and sang the National Anthem, which seemed to be one of the highlights of the night. Normally singing only the first verse of the song, David changed it up and sang the last, more uncommon verse of the song, and seemed to blow the entire audience away.

Watch below [above], and be sure to listen for an excited “He was fantastic!” at the very end.

There’s just something about the way David sings patriotic songs; he puts something into those performances that no one else does, and makes you really feel the meaning of the song. Don’t know what I mean? Listen below [above] as David sings his own patriotic medley of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and America The Beautiful from last night:

And if that’s not enough, this performance of God Bless America is just breathtaking. Really, he’s performed this song countless of times, but nothing compares to this version in my opinion. You can tell he’s putting his all into this song, with his strong, beautiful voice and the amazing affect it has, this performance is absoluetly stunning.

Thanks 1djafan for the video!

From @iheartfirefly:

Firefly and David Archuleta! (Maddie says she can die happy now:) http://fb.me/SSDKfEd8

David Archuleta stopped into the FOX 10 studio Friday night. He is still singing and touring and has some visits to the valley scheduled.

Saturday he’ll be performing in Gilbert, and he’ll be back in November to perform a big holiday show at Grand Canyon University’s new performance center.

It’s been more than 3 years since American Idol. So we asked, how has it been ever since?
