David really out-Archuleted himself today! At the age of 18, he made his mark on a very tough vocal piece. Singing done. Now time to mix.

From Richard’s Twitter

@realbrookewhite Tuesday is good. Here recording David’s vocals right now…you ever sat in the room with him singing and said “wow!”?

DavidArchie – Everyone keeps asking me “so, what are you doing in Alaska? You going fishing?” or something along the lines of fishing lol.

DavidArchie -Wow! I haven’t really been on the computer for a while. That’s a good thing though! I feel productive! lol.

DavidArchie – Bah Bad internet connection! I have a blog to get up internet! Work with me here please!

DavidArchie – This is not helpful. It’s over 200 minutes now too! I paid 10 bucks for this internet connection! going to…..

DavidArchie – Kinda awkward but I found a good connection in front of someone else’s door!

(I have this great picture in my head of David standing outside this door wth his computer pointing in all different directions trying to get a connection! HA HA! He is just so precious)

DavidArchie – Hallelujah! I thought this would never go up!

Kbestor – Recording Boys Choir for Archuleta CD this morning. Should be the final touch on this song.

DavidArchie – This is really bugging me that the airport security is carelessly going through everything in my backpack and all I can do is watch

(I know how frustrating that can be. We know it needed to be done but they could have a little more respect for handling your belongings. The last time I went through security, the woman literally threw my purse back on the table after she went through it and I had a very delicate camera and lens in my purse.)

DavidArchie – Goodbye Alaska! Had a blast here! One Sweet Love – Sara Bareilles is playing on the airplane. Great Song.

Alaska Concert

28 August

Back to: Plaid shirt and Scarf – David had even the more mature fans jumping up and down to Zero Gravity, he definitely was a crowd pleaser with that song. His renditions of Apologize and Angels were amazing and as one fans said: “David thanked the fans after each song and the crowd burst into applause. It was truly incredible, he’s one of the few artists that actually sounds good live. Not good, but amazing. He said he was cold and I don’t blame him. I would definitely go to one of his concerts again.”

David’s Vlog – David was sitting on his hands – he was told he uses them too much when talking. It didn’t last very long! HaHa! He was discussing his photo shoot for the Christmas album but couldn’t give us any details or show us any shots. Also said it was fun to have Ashlee with him for a few days and she really got along with everyone. She got to see some of the things David has to do when not performing. She also experienced the paparazzi chasing them and the recording studio. David hopes that in his next video blog he can shows us as he records. Wow! Woot! Woot!

Charice Pempengco reveals Christmas with David Archuleta – Manila Bulletin by NRJ RAMOS

Filipino singer Charice Pempengco revealed that she had finished recording a duet with American Idol 2008 runner-up David Archuleta for his forthcoming Christmas album. And despite fans “twitting” for the young singer to disclose more details about the duet, Charice could only say that “it’s a duet” and that fans should “wait for it”. Charice also relayed a “thank you” to David Archuleta, saying that “the recording was such a pleasure to do”.

Idol Live – Poll of the week: David Archuleta defeats all competitors in champion series finale.

After fourteen weeks of competition, Idol Live’s annual poll of the week champion series edition has come to a close. David Archuleta took the top spot, following a two-week voting period that consisted of a whopping 10 alums from the series’ seventh season.

As expected, Arch took the cake with 11,595 votes, reeling in 64% of the total votes cast. Arch’s only real competition was David Cook, who netted 6,257 votes, or 34% of all votes. These results are flipped in comparison to last year’s results, when Cook took in 82% and Arch was able to amass only 17% of the votes. (Congratulations to all Honeybees, as I am sure you made the difference!)

Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree Trimming – pikepss

Moved a few boxes in the garage the other day and it occurred to me I needed new Christmas decorations to trim the tree this year! So I thought, what about David’s Christmas CDs, some of his promo cards and pictures of David with a Santa hat hanging from the tree. Oh yes, and I have all those VIP necklaces from the gift bags from I Love All Access, and don’t forget the key chains we all got!

Let us all hummm now….

It’s beginning to look a lot like David
Everywhere you go;
Take a look in his golden eyes, glistening once again –
With his smiling face, and candy cheeks aglow,
It’s beginning to look a lot like David
Albums in ev’ry store,
But the prettiest sight to see is his picture that will be,
On your own front door.

Ok before anyone says something, yes it’s been a slow week but I really needed this!!!!! Humor me!!!!

pikepss’ Pick of the Week

David Archuleta VBlog from Alaska

David’s recent blog kept me laughing for a few minutes and then I needed to watch it again and again to make sure I got everything he says. Only David can make something so simple a treasure to keep forever. Love that fact that it was his first time in Alaska and adored the “got to see cool pointy mountains and a glacier.” But when he said he was moving when he talks he’s on a bed and he likes it, it’s better than a desk, I rolled over and just laughed till I had tears. It’s great to hear him relaxed and enjoying himself. Interesting how he mentioned his voice is different from recording studio to the stage, recording every day and is really in the Christmas Spirit. He must get a kick out of Kurt Bestor as he thinks he’s really funny. Got to see his family for a few days and spent some time with friends before they go off in different directions. He forgot how nice it was to be home. Very funny and cute blog!

    Thanks for another great wrap-up, Pam! I’m still humming your Christmas ditty and probably will continue till October 13 when it will be replaced — I cannot lie! — with David’s carols. I love Christmastime, so I’m happy to have it start early this year.
