David Archuleta has released a new music video from his OPM album, Forevermore. It’s available at major music stores in the Philippines, and at MyMusicStore.com.ph for digital download.

David himself may be far away in Chile, but his fans will always have him close in our hearts. And this beautiful love song says it all—David will never really go and his fans won’t either!

Speaking of David Archuleta fans, MasterClassLady is not only a super fan, but someone who knows a great voice when she hears it. She has written a wonderful review of David’s “sensitive performance” of “I’ll Never Go” on her blog.

Lee Hernandez has a nice write-up about David’s new music video on the Huffington Post.

And now—drumroll, please—enjoy the beautiful pipes of David Archuleta!

David Archuleta’s new album BEGIN.

7 May 2012

Good news from David Archuleta’s official website!

David Archuleta is pleased to announce the title and release date of his new album. The album is titled BEGIN., and is set for release in the US on August 7, 2012.

BEGIN. will be a mix of cover songs and original tracks. It is David’s fifth solo album after his debut record “David Archuleta”, the holiday album “Christmas From The Heart”, the sophomore record “The Other Side Of Down”, and the OPM album “Forevermore”.


The summer hasn’t even officially begun and I’m already expecting a long, slow feeling of anticipation. It’s only three months. Maybe I’ll spend some lazy summer afternoons dreaming of the many classic songs I would like to hear David sing. We already know that “Bridge Over Troubled Water” is one of the songs. The album producer Kurt Bestor let that tidbit slip during a recent interview. What other great, classic songs might be on David’s album? I’m making a list! What’s on your list?

I’ll be back!

“I’ll be back!” With those words, David Archuleta has departed for a two year mission to Chile for his church. He was very busy just before departure, starring in Nandito Ako, a popular Filipino television show and recording an OPM album entitled Forevermore. Back in Utah, David quickly recorded another album to be released sometime this summer. That one is a collection of classics produced by Emmy-award-winning composer and fellow Utahn, Kurt Bestor. Bestor recently told ABC 4 News that Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge over Troubled Waters” is one of the covers David sings.

DA Buzzing will keep up with David’s Tweeter feeds as we count down the days until he returns to the world of music. Until that day in 2014, we encourage all David’s fans to continue being fans! Here are just a few things you can do.

A big hearty thanks to David Archuleta for all the beautiful music during the past four years! All the vocals, albums, pop and Christmas concerts, TV appearances, Twitter updates, video blogs, and more! David is certainly a wonderful Idol for all of us who love the bel canto voice. We wish him a great experience in Chile.

Die-hard fans may enjoy learning more about Chile during David’s two-year visit there.

  • The BBC has a nice overview of Chile and its 17 million people.
  • Chile is in the forefront of astronomy. Its high altitude makes the Atacama an ideal place from which to study the origins of the universe. When it is completed next year, ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter / submillimeter Array, will have spread 66 radio antennas near the spine of the Andes.
  • Lonely Planet has a review of popular travel destinations in Chile. Just reading about the colored houses in Valparaíso, an oasis in the Atacama desert, Easter Island, and volcanoes at Pucón gives me a feeling of wanderlust.

We could also learn a little Chilean slang. I’ve read about a dictionary of chilenismos, idioms unknown even to other Spanish language speakers.

¡Chao pescado!

Literally: bye fish
Implied meaning: See you later, alligator (Hasta luego)
Example: Al salir uno dice: Chao pescado

P.S. A note: since South America is in the Southern Hemisphere, David will have his first summertime birthday this December!

DAVID ARCHULETA + MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER = MAGIC!

28 November 2011

David Archuleta and Mannheim Steamroller were the musical artists for Pandora Unforgettable Holiday Moments on Ice broadcast on NBC on Sunday, November 27, 2011.  The collaboration turned out to be pure genius, and David was in his element performing with this well-known group.  All of the performances were stellar, but David singing “Above The Northern Lights” was particularly stunning.  Sublime and hauntingly beautiful describe both the melody (set in a minor key) and David’s vocals.  Skaters Naomi Lang & Peter Tchernyshev, five-time U.S. National Ice Dance Champions, wonderfully interpreted the music with their choreography.

Chip Davis, founder of Mannheim Steamroller, co-hosted the program with Kristi Yamaguchi, and he referred to David as “the remarkable David Archuleta.”  It’s clear there was mutual admiration between David and the Mannheim musicians.  The group sent out the following tweet regarding this performance of “Above The Northern Lights.”
