Below is some of our outstanding activities since DAVN’s foundation:
* TOSOD celebration:
Thanks to the sponsorship and donation of nice and generous U.S. Archies- Joy, Trish, Kimak, and Winnie Sin, with the David Archuleta Funds we had, we were able to purchase 18 Fan Edition packs of The Other Side of Down, 25 regular CDs, 2 Deluxe CDs, and 2 signed Deluxe CDs.
Thanks to our sponsors and gifters, and David as well, we had a great TOSOD celebration.

* Vietnamese Archies bought 18 copies of Chords of Strength and this is some pictures of us celebrating and partying (tks, Knorr, for making the collage):
Lovely Trish handed David the above CoS collage and David is so nice to write a wonderful note to Vietnamese Archies (thank you so much, David):

Many thanks to Joy who helped us a lot with our charity works. Without Joy, we couldn’t do anything to support David.
Letter from administrator- Huong from Hanoi:
Hi Archies, Arch Angels and every one,
Welcome you all to my fan-site for David Archuleta, my only and forever idol.
My name is Hương. I am not a teen any more, but I must confess that I am having a bad case of Super Obsession David Archuleta Disorder (SODAD). Yup, it’s true, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. LOL And I am so proud of it.
I am Vietnamese and living in Vietnam. My dream of meeting David in person finally came truth when he visited Malaysia for promotion in Asia. Thanks to Archuleta Avenue Malaysia, I got VIP pass and then the life-time experience. You can read my story of meeting David in KL by clicking the following link:
Also, this is my letter for David:
I hope that David will soon come back and have his concerts in Southeast Asia so I can fly there to meet him again. (I’m saving the money from now) lol
Open letter to David from DAVN’s author, Huong-davidforever18 (yeah, another Huong from Hanoi):
Dear David, my only and forever idol,
The first thing which is always-on-my-mind is to say thank you.Thank you so much for everything you have done for us and for me.
Thank you for your appearance in my life.
You know, music seems to be a part of our life. Even someone can’t live without music. And I am one of them. I like music. I’m not so sure about what kind of music I actually like. I just listen to songs that attract me. If I say I have never admired anybody, it’s a lie, haha. In my life, I’ve admired a lot of people because of their talent, or their kindness.
But I have to confess that this is the first time I admired a person like this. My friends, and also my family, all surprised at the way I become one of your huge fan. Haha. My classmates often say that “You’re so crazy!” They may tease me, but i think it’s so true. Who can make me fall in love at the first sight? Whose music can touch my heart?? Whose voice can steal my heart at the first time? Who can lead me to become a huge and loyal fan?? Who can make me cry when he cries? What subjects can I always talk about (and never feel bored of talking about)? Whose name can let me scream and jump up and down whenever it is called on TV or radio?….blah blah……
And all have the same answer. It’s you, David.^^
My friends told me: “Why can you tell many good things about a person who you have never met? Why are you sure that he is good or not?” I myself don’t know why sometimes. But being a fan of you make me always believe in it.Thanks to medias, newspapers, magazines, etc., my faith is growing stronger and stronger. You are a humble, kind, sweet, hilarious and maybe a sensitive guy .I like the way you treat your fans. It’s good all the way, haha. And I love your smile- a beautiful smile like the sunshine. It’s amazing!!!! You know, to someone your smile can brighten their day.!!
I am really happy for those who could meet you in person. It’s just a big dream for me (and I think it’s maybe impossible). So sad!!! But it’s ok!! I’ll be a good fan, keep supporting you and will not stop loving you. Everything I do, I do it for you.
Thanks to you, I have many friends from many places in the world. It’s so cool for me!
Thank you for all the things you have done.
Thank you, because you inspire me to do many things.
Thanks for your voice and your music which touch my heart and soul.
Thanks for your smile, because it always makes me feel happy when thinking about.
AND THANK YOU FOR BEING JUST YOU!!!!!!
I love you because of who you are, so be yourself always!!! I will keep the faith!!!
Words fail me.
God bless you and your family!!!
P/S: One of the most pity of my life is that I missed the chance to watch all your performances on AI 7 because I was very busy with my exams. I really wanted to see you every week, wanted to enjoy all your songs, wanted to be nervous when the judges threw comments at you every week and in the final. I even didn’t know who David Archuleta was until after AI.
But One of the happiest thing I have found is you. Since I listened to “Crush”, everything changed to me.
Although you will never know who I am, there is nothing can stop me from supportting and loving you!!!! A huge fan is me!!!! Yeah!!!
In Archu-love, Huong
Letter from Dung, 3rd DAVN’s author, from HCMC:
I’m archieologist, usually known as boony on archievn forum, twitter, ect.. I’m 16 years old and I’m living in Ho Chi Minh city, which is very far from Ha Noi, from other DAVN authors. I first chatted with ss Huong (admin.) and ss Huong (davidforever18) on a live chat and then accidentally invited to be an author of DAVN. I must say that at that time I was very happy and honored because I really want to do something for David and Vietnamese AAs. I also felt very worried as my inexperience of moderating a website, but 2 ss Huongs helped me a lot^^.
I can’t remember when I began to love David Archuleta, I think it was over a year ago when I heard him singing With You. I was totally amazed and fascinated by his voice! I watched his performances on American Idol season 7 millions time then I became an Arch Angel . I was obsessed by his voice, his smiles, his giggles, … everything! No word can describe how much I love him.
Finally, I want to tell ss Huong, ss Huong (^^), Ms Joyi and Sandy (who gifted me the Fan Pack), Vietnamese AAs from archievn and all the AAs that you guys showed me what is real love for our idol, David Archuleta. I can’t say ” thank you” enough honestly.
xoholic0508- Hieu’s short and sweet introduction (from HCMC):
I became an author of David Archuleta Vietnam because of some reasons. First of all, I am a huge fan of David and I love his voice, his music and his character as well. Secondly, it is the best way to contribute my small part to further promoting the image of David to the music loving community in Vietnam. Last but not least, taking part in this fan-site is obviously a great way to make friends, catch the latest news of my idol while being able to share some of my thoughts as well.
