The Spirit of David Archuleta Fan Scene lives on


Throughout the years Fan Scene (formerly known as the Official Yahoo Group 2004-2008) has developed quite a history. Todd and I have been supporting David Archuleta and his music way before American Idol and perhaps just prior to Star Search and we were both members of David’s Official Forum back in the day and Todd went on to run the Official Yahoo Group as Street Team Leader for a few years. So we can say that Fan Scene is one of, if not the original David Archuleta Fan Site.

As American Idol came around, Fan Scene was redeveloped in order to bring you day to day events as they occurred. It has always been Todd’s dream to some day see David Archuleta publish his own cd album and I believe that dream became reality on November 11, 2008.

A few days ago, Todd reported that he was stepping back and possibly shutting down Fan Scene. But Fan Scene has a very strong spirit and means a lot to a lot of people. Although we don’t have 50 teen boppers posting comments over and over, we are seen as a more mature, formal type of site.

So I am happy to report that Fan Scene will remain open and will continue to bring you day to day news on David Archuleta and his music. Todd will step back a bit as he tends to other important matters but I will be taking his place and together with our support team, the spirit of Fan Scene shall live on.

The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die

For those that have sent in comments, emails and words of encouragement, Thank You. For those that have stepped up to the plate and offered to help, Thank You. It is you “the fans” together with David Archuleta that keeps the hopes and dreams of Fan Scene alive.

  1. Thank you so much for continuing Fan Scene. I was really sad the other day when I read that you were closing the site. I have been visiting your site daily and like your unique perspective on all things David. I don’t leave comments, but will do so in the future if only to let you know that I am out here and enjoying what you are sharing. I appreciate all you do, in support of David. Thanks for staying on the road.

  2. Thank you Todd for all you have done for David over the years and I am certain will continue to do so in some fashion in the future.
    Thank Orlando for continuing on FanScene. I was a bit forlorn as I had recently referred several friends to this site as this was exactly what they were looking for (oh, I am looking at the cute avatar of one of those friends to the right at this moment!) and they will now continue to have this.
    Thanks again.

  3. Well-said, Orlando! I am proud to be part of the support team who will contribute to Fan Scene. Waiting for you to start the ball rolling…

Thank you Todd for all your hard work over the past and thank you Orlando for continuing.
