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!)

All right. Bubbly! shall be my new happy word. If the weather is fine, I will go “Bubbly!” If lunch is good, I’ll say, “Bubbly!” Why? Simply because of this.

I mean, seriously, if Colbie nailed her own song, David basically hammered it in so much it penetrates the neighbour’s wall. Sorry Colbie, I really like you too.

Today’s Blog!
Hello all! I just wanted to let you know how my week has gone and about the things I’ve gotten to do.

First off, I’d like to welcome Jordan Pruitt to the tour! I talked to her and she’s a really nice girl. She’s really talented too. So even though I miss KSM :( . I’m looking forward to having Jordan with us now! So I hope you guys enjoy her set. And also, I just wanted to say welcome to Jordan!

All right, so the shows that we’ve had since my last update have been in Kansas City, Chicago, and Cincinnati. They’ve all been awesome! Today we’re in Cleveland. Something exciting about this week is we had Kendra’s family around! We had 2 days off while they were here, so we decided to take the time and visit some historical church sites that were in the areas of Independence, Liberty, and Far West Missouri. They were all in the Kansas City area. It’s really interesting learning about the history and challenges people had to face back then, and admirable to see the courage they had when they faced them. On our other day off, we were going to Chicago but took a detour to a little historical town called Nauvoo. I loved it! All the people there were just really nice, and they had a pageant (which is another way of saying a play I guess haha) which was really neat. If you ever happen to be in the area for some reason lol, I really recommend you check it out. But it was fun spending time with Kendra’s family and going to see the sites!

After Nauvoo, Kendra’s family left, but we actually had another day off yesterday and went to another little historical town called Kirtland here in Ohio. Had another great day there! haha. I’ve heard a lot about these places since they have a lot of history with my church and beliefs, and I honestly was never that interested in going to visit them before. I just thought ok… I know a lot of stuff happened there but it’s old. But this year we decided to go since they just so happened to all be near cities we had days off in. Isn’t that ironic? lol. But wow…. I had such an awesome time. I just gained a totally new perspective of what people really had to go through in their lives so I could have what I have in my life today. It’s good to learn about our history, and see what has helped get us where we are and make us who we are today. I just have to say thanks to them for everything. You can always read stuff and say yeah ok sure I know about it already. But there’s a big difference in actually being there where it happened and feel the atmosphere of it all. You also learn in a way you could never learn by just reading. I know I don’t usually mention that kind of stuff… but it’s what I did this week, and I can’t help but show how much I appreciate and respect what they’ve done. You’d really have to go to the places to understand, and see what they were like. But anyway, this has just been a really great week :) .

Ok, tomorrow is a solo show in Pittsburgh! I haven’t done a headlining show since the first show in Del Mar, but yeah I’m on tour with Demi now so that’s the reason why haha. But it should be fun! The scary thing is since we’ve been on tour, we haven’t had a whole lot of rehearsal time – Even though we did get to go through the longer set with the newer band members in Del Mar. But I’m excited! Pittsburgh is a great city. I remember when Jason Castro and I hung out during our day off there. I made a video blog that night about it too haha. Hold on let me see if I can find it…

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnxD4zi-_7o]

I haven’t seen it since the day I uploaded it, and I don’t plan on watching it now either lol. But wow that was just about a year ago! Crazy how much can happen in a year. But anyway there it is if you wanted to see what I did on my last day off hanging out in PIttsburgh. So it should be fun! Let me know if you’re coming to the show or any of the other solo shows! But hey I think I have to go to soundcheck now… So I’ll talk to you guys later!

Song for the day: Blow Away – A Fine Frenzy Kinda random I know but it’s always in my head haha. Needed to get it out.

Yes! the Christmas Album is on it’s way!!!!!!!!!

From MyIdolNews

David Archuleta to Release Christmas Album, Exclusive Track Preview

David Archuleta will be releasing a new Christmas album in November and many fans are wondering what songs will be on it. David has given one clue by performing “O Holy Night” at several occasions throughout his career and before he even made it big on American Idol. Watch a performance of him singing the song at the Hollywood VIP tree lighting. The performance is incredible.

Always gives me the chills! Surprisingly i had not heard this song (and a couple of other Christmas songs too LOL!) before David sang it so it will always be very special to me! Everytime i hear someone else sing this, it would always remind me of David’s beautiful rendition!<33333 Can’t wait to lay my hands on the album! Love you, David for all that you do for your Angels<3
