David Archuleta Then and Now

30 December 2009



Since David just celebrated his 19th birthday on Monday, the thought occurred to me that we forget how fast young people grow up and change. Not only is it their personality, clothing, ideas, and confidence, but obviously their appearance as well. David was 16 when he auditioned for American Idol and 17 on that first performance when he sang “Shop Around” and stole our hearts. Just two years later we have a seasoned performer who is still stealing our hearts and making us follow his every step.

As this is close to his two year anniversary in appearing on American Idol Season 7, I thought it would be fun to see the difference in ‘then and now’ in pictures and in performance. Here are a couple of examples:

    It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since David was introduced to the world. So much has happened and he has grown so much as a performer, and it has been an interesting show that I am hoping to enjoy for a very long time.

    Pam, I love your site and have read every word. I loved getting to know you driving to and from BYU/Idaho. I agree that David has grown so much—will be anxious to see what 2 more years will bring for all of us to enjoy. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I look forward to our concerts together next year! Love you, Patti A.
