The Real Deal?

You watch “Reality” shows (Like American Idol) and you see singing sensations, you witness the growth and popularity of a certain few and we all become part of someone’s “dream come true” – Right? Well, sometime…but it’s rare to see the “real thing” (and I’m NOT talking about Coke). Like millions of others I watched Season 7 of American Idol, and like millions of others became a fan of David Archuleta – why? well, first he can actually sing, second, he seemed so REAL, humble, sincere, non-pretentious, approachable, the boy next door…BUT, was it all an act? I’m here to tell you that the David Archuleta you saw on American Idol is very real!

david-archuletaOn July 30th David Archuleta paid a surprise visit to a full house of waiting fans and friends. With no prior announcement of who would be the speaking (or singing) at a ”special musical fireside” held at the Brandon Stake Center for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, David Archuleta spoke and sang while the entire congregation witnessed first hand that this young man was the “real deal”. Speaking for nearly 40 minutes and singing several of his favorite hymns, David spoke from the heart expressing deep conviction and gratitude for his faith, beliefs, and blessings. He did far more than just sing, he touch hearts and caused many to reflect on the more important aspects of life.

David Archuleta is not just another singing act – his voice will take you beyond just listening, it will take you to a level of hearing that few other singers have the capacity to deliver. It was an honor, pleasure and joy to have met such such a spiritual giant – oh yeah, he’s sings really well too…did I happen to mention one of the nicest guys you’d every want to meet.

This reminds me of DALIM (David Archuleta Live in Manila). For those of you who didn’t know, he visited a LDS Church in Guadalupe, Makati  at 7am of Sunday May 17 (Day after their concert) where he sang “Be still my Soul.”

One thing is for sure, David Archuleta is not the “what you see is what you get” kind of guy. He’s really the type of person who never fails to thank the Almighty God for everything He has given to him. It is obvious why he earned the love and respect his fans are giving to him. I am confident that he’ll continue to experience the fame he is experiencing right now and I know that one day, he will not only be recognized as a great artist but also a person with a strong faith to God.

Today, Archies/ Arch Angels around the world celebrate the first anniversary of the radio premiere of Crush, David Archuleta’s first single.

Crush Anniversary

This video captured David’s reaction when Crush was first played on radio last year. I have to admit that today, a year to the event, was the first time I ever watched this video. His priceless sense of awe and wonder – almost humble disbelief that this was happening to him, was so real; it made him so human. It made my love for him bubbly over, made me feel I want to gather him in my arms in a sisterly fashion and give him a good encouraging hug-and-pat. But all this is now merely history and David has made huge strides in his career, having grown in self-confidence, acquired a sharper sense of acumen in the music business, and developed a greater distinct individuality in his musical style that one can only associate with David Archuleta. Still, a core part of David never changes – his sense of appreciation for his faith, family, friends, management and FANS who have made this possible for him – this sense of awe and wonder that keeps him grounded that we witness first-hand in this video. I hope, NO, I’m confident that we’ll see this endearing, humble behavior from him through the many more future song and album releases.

awwwwwwwww!! I sometimes wonder HOW BIG his heart really is!! I loved every second of this amazing video! Gosh, it totally brought back soo many wonderful memories:D I miss you soo much, David!

LOL I never believed I could stand so much embarrassment esp. singing one of David’s songs LIVE on AIR! Guess I feel a li’l better now assuming no one recognized the terrible-sounding me (none of them contacted me so I think that’s fine and I hope the radio peeps don’t have a recording of that!) So let me tell you what really happened..I call this amaaazzzing local English-only radio station in Chennai, India (where I live haha!) to request the same old thing i.e. play David’s songs, add his songs to their really good playlist and all that usual stuff. He told me to call up during the request shows so that they could play his songs. Sadly I work during that time so I wouldn’t have a chance to listen. So then he told me he’d speak to his manager to add David’s songs to this playlist.
And ironically the topic for that hour of the show was “Which reality show would you like to take part in?” So first he was like would you like to take part in the show? I was like sure, why not! Was that a mistake? No, comin to think of it now, I guess me fangirling was totally worth it!:D
(Click on the graphic to check out the station’s website!)

Then I went on air and it felt really nice and obviously I told the DJ I would love to take part in AI (yeah right! Geez wonder if I’d really do that considering the drama and hype that surrounds it, and most of all with my funny voice NO WAY!) but still it was nice playin along. And the next question just totally brought out that fan girl in me! Yikes! He asked me, “Who’s your fav contestant ever?” and then my voice got all high and squeaky and I answered, “Ever? My Fav Contestant EVER? That HAS to be DAVID ARCHULETA”! There! I had said it with so much joy and energy, I literally had to contain myself from sayin anything more coz he shot the next questions pretty quickly after acknowledging my love for David LOL! I was such a happy woman right there just to be able to tell the world ( I mean ppl in my city:D) how much I love this awesome guy! I was floating with happiness and suddenly everything went boom! He had just asked me to sing a few lines! And what song was in my head right that moment was “Somebody Out There” and the next instant I knew I was butcherin the song! How pathetic! LOL I messed up on the lyrics BIG TIME and abruptly stopped! Still, the DJ was nice enough to shoot a li’l compliment, thank you for that :) Gah! I was soo nervous coz he was like “you’ve got 30 mins now sing for us!” anyways I’m over all that funny stuff and it was jus fabulous to be able to express my feelings to everyone who was listening! May be the DJ guy would now pretty well know me as a David-obsessed fan coz I went to the radio station, met him in person a few days later (he’s too cool!) and requested him to play David’s songs!

So then after a few days I got yet another chance to spaz about David to the producer this time! Thanks to my sis for winning those tics for the Harry Potter special screening LOL! After the movie was over we waited quite a bit and caught her to convey our thank-yous and then I chipped in “Could you play David Archuleta’s songs please?” and she goes “oohhh ok I’ll tel my manager that there are David Archuleta fans out here who want to listen to his songs on the radio..” and I got super excited at this point!:) I seriously said “OMG yaaaayyyy” and she replied “My manager is gonna cringe coz he’s a rock person, but still I will defi tell him about this!” So then we walked some distance and before she entered the building she was heading to (Note: I didn’t say anything after that last conversation!) she said “Bye, nice meeting you” and she looks at me and goes “I will tel about David Archuleta to my manager” and I was totally taken by surprise and filled with immense joy! I really didn’t expect her to remember! It was really nice!

Hopefully the manager gets my message!:)) Till then this fan ain’t resting!:)

Hopin to blog many many more times about my various radio encounters and some other stuff as well! ( I’m pretty sure I’m gonna have lots of ‘em now bwahahahaha!)

Greensboro show videos!
