Meeting David Archuleta “one of the best days of my life”.

Jessica and David, August 4th, 2008


 WOW..there are no words to describe last night!! It all started off with the amazing concert–everyone was great, but the cheers and fun truly started as soon as Syesha announced David’s name! The crowd, including myself, went wild! Let’s just saying hearing and seeing him on youtube and pictures does Archie no justice. He is an unbelievable performer, as he was able to keep the audience roaring with excitement throughout the course of his time on stage. He looked amazing and sounded incredible, considering how tough it is having to perform so many consecutive concerts. I had the time of my life, dancing/singing along/waving my glowstick! 🙂 I also have to give lots of props to Cook, who was great as well (even though Archie did receive a louder ovation lol).

Then it came time to the moment I was so anxiously awaiting….BACKSTAGE AFTERPARTY time!!! woooo…I picked up my passes prior to the show, and after asking some Ushers, my guest and I were escorted to where we had to go. Upon arriving backstage, the Idols were sitting all around the room. Lines were formed by each Idol, as the fans patiently awaited their turn at a few moments with the Top 10. I got the opportunity to meet Syesha, Ramielle, Jason, Brooke, Michael Johns, and none other than MR. DAVID ARCHULETA himself!! Some Idols left early, including Chikezie, Kristy Lee, Carly, and David Cook. I was glowing with joy and sheer amazement as I walked around the area that was set-up. I couldn’t stop smiling as I walked from line to line, getting autographs and taking pictures with the Idols. I even got the chance to meet Brooke’s husband and David’s dad, Jeff!! Everyone I met was just so nice and willing to chat and take pics. I had a very long convo with Jeff, talking about everythinggg..he is sooo sweet!!! David signed everything he was presented, despite how exhausted he looked.

"I haven't seen these before...Thank you so much! I can't wait to try it."

"I haven't seen these before...Thank you so much! I can't wait to try it."

I gave David a new big & soft nutter butter, and his eyes opened so wide with utter shock. He told me “I haven’t seen these before…Thank you so much! I can’t wait to try it.”

I was able to hug him twice (one I took a pic of and one I didn’t)..He was just so so nice and just about the most genuine person I have ever met!! David Archuleta was the last one to leave the afterparty! (proving once again just how sincere and down-to-earth he truly is!) 🙂

The afterparty lasted for approximately an hour, and I just couldn’t get enough of the Idols….sooo I decided to go wait outside by the buses to catch a last glimpse of the Idols before they boarded their buses. Well, there was definitely more people than I expected outside, but I still wasn’t ready to leave just yet. I watched as Archie and some of the other Idols made their way up and down the lines of fans. Then we stayed and watched as the buses pulled out and the security guards told us we needed to leave. lol

 My dream finally has come true, and I am just so extremely thankful to have been given my chance to meet the very people I respect so much and look so highly up to. I feel privileged to have met such amazing people and entertainers.  I can assure you that I will never forget August 4, 2008, as this day is very high on my list of the best days of my life.


Note: Trying to find a photo of Big and Soft Nutter Butters wasn’t that easy. They are so new they are not even listed at Nabisco’s website How fun that Jessica got to be the one to introduce David to a new treat.
