    This video is so AWESOMELY CLEVER!!! I just LOVE all the fine details and how Kylie Malchus captured the “Essence of David Archuleta”; facial expressions, hunkerdown, etc., I’m so impressed. She’s so talented. The song is so beautiful, so addicting and David’s singing is beyond, beyond; no words!!! KUDOS Team Archie.

    Happy 1 year down and 1 to go! :) #DA2014♥

    Wow, only just saw this today~amazing amount of work went into this Kylie…great job! You really captured the song and David. I love “Don’t Run Away.” I remember your “Elevator” video too, which also captured the feel of that song so creatively. The minute you said they Kari contacted you because of another video you had done, I knew which one you meant. Thanks for lending your talents again.

    Such an amazing mv!! Loved Kylie’s Elevator me too!

    Kylie, I loved the video. I was thinking that is was so much like a fabulous one done of Elevator and then I saw you telling about it and that you did do Elevator. Wow, Drawing is hard enough, but making the motions match. I am just in awe. My son is a graphic designer. I’ve really got to have him look at this. You captured David and gave the girl a personality. It is just fascinating. I can’t believe how many drawings you had to make to do it. Thank you sooooooo much.

    “I have a relationship with my fans” Yes David, you most certainly do. All the music you’ve left us, the unexpected surprises continue to amaze me. You are truly one in a million.

    This MV is perfect for Don’t Run Away.

    Thank you from a fan for life. DA2014

So very proud to be a David Archuleta fan! #DA2014

    The MV is amazing and compliments the song perfectly! It’s subtle and dramatic at the same time! Love the SLC scene with the mountains and lights, David’s expressions are spot on! Great job Kylie!
    Thank you David once again!

    If you read any current music industry blogs it will tell you how important it is for an artist to maintain a good relationship with their fans. David has done that in spades. From day one he has gone out of his way to show his fans how important they are to him and I think that using a well done, unique and artsy fan-made video to promote one of his songs takes this relationship to another level. Well done David.

  17. Absolutely love David’s song Don’t Run Away and Kylie’s new DRA video!! Kylie is UBER talented and truly knows the “heart” of David as evidenced by the theme and special “additions” to this vid!! (the DA2014 train, SLC, the hunkerdown…) Thank you Team David for choosing her to do this, and thank you Kylie for so beautifully “answering the call.” So many gifts.. and NMHF on iTunes late tonight/tomorrow!!!Does Christmas as a DA fan ever end?! :)

  18. I really like it! And to use a fan is beyond special, has that ever even been done before? How could anybody question why this fanbase is so loyal:) ? Nice job, and great song. This is very touching.
    #DA2014….says it all!
