Cambio Connect Live Chat with David
from Cambio Connect
5 November 2010

For more than thirty minutes, David answers many and various questions sent by fans via Twitter. He sends his thoughts and prayers to the people of Indonesia who are suffering Nature’s fury. He says he’d love to make a music video of “Elevator.” Says he’s rehearsing in LA for the upcoming performances. Asked if he would like to do a voice for an animated character, he says yes, then launches into “Sing,” the Sesame Street song. (by Louis Prima, EMI Music) Talks about food — surprise, surprise. He gets another marriage proposal. Of course!

Silly me, I thought it was funny that David is sitting between the cushions. At one point he wraps one hand around the other arm. I do that too!

Why Katheryn Champions David Archuleta
by Katheryn, Archuleta FanScene
7 November 2010

Besides immediately recognizing David as a precocious talent on American Idol, what also drew me into the world of David Archuleta fandom was my personal revulsion at the derision directed at him by many in the entertainment media. I guess most of those writers had been so hardened by years of working in the industry they couldn’t believe a person of David’s character actually exists. Thankfully, most such attacks have ceased, except by the lowest elements in the media. However, I find that the entertainment media in general tends to ignore people of good character, no matter how talented….

Thanks to ArchieFanDoc for publishing this must-read for David Archuleta fans everywhere! It’s an inspiration from our very own and original Honeybee, Katheryn. Please read the entire story.

from Angels for a Cause
24 October 2010

“It’s in the Bag” Fundraiser!

David Archuleta with Childrens Miracle Network, Washington D.C. October 2010Children’s Miracle Network has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983 from a televised fundraiser in a small studio to one of North America’s leading children’s charities. Founded by Marie Osmond and her family, John Schneider, Mick Shannon, and Joe Lake, CMN has raised more than $3.4 billion since 2008—most of it donated a dollar or two at a time. Children’s Miracle Network is guided by two simple goals:

1. Help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals.
2. Keep funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children.

Attention David Archuleta fans: your donation will help raise money for this worthy cause and you might win a cool David Archuleta-styled denim handbag. Visit Angels for a Cause to see all the artistic bags. With a donation of at least $10.00, your name will be placed in the drawing. The It’s in the Bag contest ends November 23.

Good luck!
