David Archuleta – Masterpiece Performance ALMA Awards

“Contigo en la Distancia” – With you in the Distance

David Archuleta is exactly what music is all about! The art of combining tones into a composition having structure and continuity, intense feelings within one’s innermost being! Last night he set himself apart from the mediocre talent that sometimes surrounds him and catapulted into Stardom!

The softness, the sensual way he sang this song will be remembered as one of his greatest performances! I am tempted to say the greatest performance but he always proves us wrong and gives us one better down the road. For me this was the most beautiful and emotional performance of any artist I have ever witnessed. Many of the great singers of our time would not be able to top David Archuleta tonight.

Translation from Spanish into English most often loses meaning but I have for your pleasure the following Spanish and English of “Contigo en la Distancia”.


Contigo en la distancia
No existe un momento del dia
En que pueda apartarte de mi
El mundo parece distinto
Cuando no esta junto a mi
No hay bella melodia
En que no surjas tu
Ni yo quiero escucharla
Si no la ecuchas tu
Es parte de mi alma
Ya nada me consuela
Si no estas tu tambien
Mas alla de tus labios
Del sol y las estrellas
Contigo en la distancia
Ama mio estoy
Contigo en la distancia
Ama mio estoy, oh


With you at distance
There’s no such moment of the day
That could drift you apart from me
The world seems different
When you’re not by my side.
There’s no beautiful song
In which you don’t appear
I don’t want to listen [to] it
If you don’t.
You have become
Part of my heart
Nothing comforts me anymore
If you’re not by my side.
Far beyond your lips
Of the sun and of the stars
With you at distance
My beloved one, I am.
With you at distance
My beloved one, I am, oh
With you

    there is no time in a day
    that i can be apart from you
    the world seems different
    when you’re not next to me

    there is no beautiful melody
    in which you are not part of
    I wouldn’t want to listen to it
    if you don’t listen too

    you have become
    part of my soul
    nothing can console me
    if you aren’t there

    beyond your lips
    the sun and the stars
    with you in the distance
    beloved you are mine

    Repeat 1

    with you the distance
    beloved you are mine
    With you.
