So apparently, Elder Archuleta held a concert in Chile on October 13 for singles from 18 to 30. The online fan spazzing for that concert reminded me of the good old early days of Archie fandom original.gif

David sang a crazy eclectic set of songs from Al Jolson's Dixie to Louis Armstrong's It's a Wonderful World to Josh Groban's You Raise Me Up, to Enrique Iglesias's Hero to Survivor's Eye of the Tiger. And a number of Spanish songs and LDS hymns. Based on reports from those who attended the show, the crowd loved him He danced Salsa during the show and mimicked Jolson when singing Dixie. He also shadow boxed and did some kickboxing before singing Eye of Tiger haha. He spoke fluent Spanish throughout the show, including a speech where he explained why he decided to go on a mission. Best of all, David seemed totally confident and happy.

I think we're gonna get an even better Archie when he returns from his mission in 2014. He seems to love music as much as ever and being on his own seems to have made him more confident and adventurous.

Read more about the concert at fansofdavid comments http://fansofdavid.com/archives/80560 . The Voice is also going to put up a summary of the chat with the woman who attended the concert. Supposed to be up on Monday: http://thevoicedavidarchuleta.com/

Seems like the most epic of epic concerts. Read til the end for a big SURPRISE!

 By Abrra and Bebereader

You had to be there on Saturday night to witness the absolute joy and passion from Gladys in reaction to the Musica Pop concert she attended by special invitation from the Senior Elders in Chile. The performers were Elder Archuleta on vocals and Elder Coello on piano. If you were lucky enough to secure a “seat” in The Voice Unplugged then you were privy to the excitement.

Gladys arrived to a room packed full of fans, waiting on the edge of our seats to see her, to hear every little detail of her experience, and then some. Let’s face it, we are missing David so much that it hurts and Gladys, who was so tired from her trip was full of energy as she spoke to us in-depth. She was generous of heart to follow with a question/answer session and we hung onto every word. We are, after all, a very inquisitive bunch! Abrra diligently copied excerpts from the chat text for you to read. Here is Djafan’s translation as it appears in the actual chat text, in upper case letters. Gladys will, of course, follow up with her own recap.

Gladys’ two-sentence recap:

I’M GOING TO SHARE IN GENERAL THINGS TO SWEETEN THINGS A BIT. HE SANG IMAGINE, DANCED SALSA, A SONG BY CELIA CRUZ, AND DANCED LIKE TO AL JOLSON

Size of crowd

TEN CHAIRS AT EACH SIDE, 20 ROWS AND MORE PEEPS IN THE BACK (400+ attended)

How he looked, what he wore

…DAVID IS STILL BEAUTIFUL AS EVER

WHEN I SAW DAVID DANCING AND SINGING, I SWEAR I THOUGHT OF TELLING EVERYONE THAT HE HAS GROWN, HIS CONFIDENCE IS HUGE, ON STAGE TRANSFORMS. TIMID NOT, IT DIDN’T EVEN EXIST.

HE SMILED AND ALL THE TIME SAID THAT HE WAS HOT

LAUGHED  A LOT AND HE IS NO LONGER LOOKING THIN
HE LOOKS GOOD AND SOME HAS GROWN, BIGGER BODY

HE DID THIS ALL DANCING IN A SUIT, MY GOD, I CRIED. THE GIRL NEXT TO ME DID TOO. WE COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT WE WERE WATCHING, WE COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT WE WERE SEEING.

TIE WAS TURQUOISE ♥

Language he spoke and sang

DAVID ALMOST NEVER SPOKE ENGLISH, HE SPOKE IN SPANISH

IT WAS ALL IN SPANISH, HE DID NOT SPEAK ANYTHING IN ENGLISH, GAVE A SPEECH IN PERFECT SPANISH.

HE SPEAKS IT REAL GOOD EXCEPT FOR SOME WORDS. HE GAVE A TALK ABOUT HIS DECISION IN SPANISH

WHEN HE FINISHED SINGING, HE SAID THAT IN HIS COUNTRY, THE AUDIENCE HE ASKED FOR MORE BUT DID NOT KNOW HOW SOME THINGS WERE SAID IN SPANISH

What he sang

HE SANG MANY HYMNS AT THE BEGINNING. WE WERE SCOLDED BECAUSE WE CLAPPED AND SCREAMED, BUT THEN IT COULDN’T BE HELPED.

AS A TRIBUTE TO THE ELDERS HE SANG DIXIE,  DOWN TO AL JOLSON AND KNEELED. DAVID WAS ON FIRE WHEN HE DANCED SALSA.

THE WHITE HAT HE WORE TO SING THE SONG OF AL JOLSON, WHEN HE FINISHED HE THREW THE HAT TO THE PUBLIC. I HAVE NEVER SEEN HIM LIKE THIS.

ALSO SANG IMAGINE AND THOUSAND MILES. HE ALSO SANG  HERO AND DREAM A MORNING IN SPANISH.  HE  SANG AN ARGENTINIAN SONG, I WAS UNCONSCIOUS, CALLED “THANKS TO LIFE”. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL SONG.

HE SANG ITS WONDERFUL WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!



HE SANG A SONG FROM THE MOVIE ROCKY, THE ORIGINAL SONG. PROBABLY EYE OF THE TIGER
WHEN HE WAS SINGING IT HE ACTED LIKE A BOXER, IT WAS TERRIBLE, EVERYONE WAS DROOLING

HE DID SOME IN FALALA SALSA STEPS THAT WAS NOTHING, HE REALLY DANCED.

HE ASKED US TO STAND AND DANCE WITH HIM WHEN HE SANG SONG BY CELIA CRUZ.

LIFE IS A CARNIVAL BY CELIA CRUZ, OMG! HE DANCED SALSA DANCING HE WAS SERIOUSLY, HE SAID HE LIKED THE AUDIENCE THAT DANCED WITH HIM NOT LIKE THAT MANY NORTH AMERICANS STAY SEATED.



Decision to go on a mission

HE SAID THAT THE DECISION TO GO ON A MISSION WAS SOMETHING THAT CAME FROM HIS HEART, JUST LIKE THE MUSIC, IT WAS A DECISION BUT SOMETHING DIFFICULT HE HAD TO DO.

His performance

JUST HIM AND LITTLE PIANO PLAYER. THE MAN IS SENSATIONAL, AND IN TRUTH COELLO PLAYS VERY WELL, PLAYED SEVERAL WALTZES. HE LAUGHED A LOT WITH COELLO.

TO SEE DAVID TO DANCE AND SING KNEEL, KARATE KICK IS SOMETHING I WILL NEVER FORGET WHILE I’M ALIVE.

WHEN THEY STARTED PLAYING THE NOTES OF ROCKY SONG, HE STARTED MOVING HIS ARMS LIKE BOXERS TO THE BACK, THEN TO THE FRONT, AND THEN BOXED WITH AN IMAGINARY SHADOW BOXER, IT WAS FUNNY.



AND THEN KICKING THE AIR LIKE A KICK BOXER, UNDERSTAND THAT I NEVER THOUGHT IN MY LIFE DAVID WAS GOING TO DO ANYTHING LIKE THIS.

HE WORE A WHITE HAT AND DID SOME DANCE STEPS AND CLOSE BY SANG COELLO. WHEN HE STARTED THE AL JOLSON SONG, HE STOOD NEXT TO COELLO AND THEY STARTED SINGING. THEY BOTH PUT ON THE WHITE HATS AND DAVID CAME TO THE CENTER OF THE STAGE

HIS VOICE HAS IMPROVED, NOW CAN HOLD ANY NOTE LONGER, NOT CHANGED, IMPROVED, HAVING HIS VOICE VERY RELAXED, THAT MUST BE IT.

The crowd

THEY TOOK HIM OUT HURRIEDLY, HE WANTED TO GREET US BUT THEY DID NOT LET.

THEY TOOK HIM OUT SO FAST AND HE KEPT SMILING.

YES THE SISTERS AND THE MISSIONARIES KNOW HE’S A FAMOUS RECORDING STAR. ALL THE YOUNG GIRLS THAT FILLED THE PLACE DID, TOO.

CHANTED EVERYONE “ONE MORE! ONE MORE!”

No pictures or video allowed

NOT VIDEOING OR PHOTOS. IT WAS NOT ALLOWED, THEY WERE GUARDING, THEY WERE WATCHING ME BECAUSE I WAS TAKING NOTES.

NO, YOU COULD NOT FILM OR TAKE PICTURES, WAS FORBIDDEN AND THERE WERE PEOPLE ON THE SIDE WATCHING.

The excitement doesn’t end here! There will be another public event in Chile at Christmas time that Gladys plans to attend.

Here's a super awesome account of David's concert in Chile from the woman Gladys who was there. It's from thevoicedavidarchuleta.com She gives lots of details. It's a really fun read. So glad to see that David continues to get to sing during his mission.

Here's one of my favorite parts from the account:

…………………. EYE OF THE TIGER. (Deserves special mention)

If you remember the song, it has a 50-second intro with many cymbal crashes. These were the most amazing 50 seconds, more extraordinary, more revealing, more ahhhhhhhhh. David began to move his arms back, then flexing and throwing punches forward with the sound of the music. Suddenly he lifted his leg and kicked the air as if he was doing kick boxing training. He then began to sing …………….
The song has many sound effects and David acted out each of them. As he sang his voice and his body emphasized each note. His left hand was never still. It was out of this world see David completely free of shyness. The entire stage was his, he left no area untouched.

When he finished he laughed and looked toward President Mckinley and said in Spanish, “Misioneros, uhhhhh.we don’t do this, I apologize President.” I think the President was as mesmerized as us. After all this, can there be more?
