David Archuleta “When You Believe”

4 June 2009


Mood: pensive

David’s beautiful rendition of this Mariah Carey song has been buzzing in my head for several days. Just wanted to share it with you Honeybees and take a little trip down memory lane.

As our country has many problems and summer is almost here, these lyrics, included in the longer audio version, stand out for me:

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seemed like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I’m standing here
My heart’s so full, I can’t explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I’d say

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It’s hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

    One of my all time favorites. Love the version on AI when he performed it. The studio version is a little different but great as well. Beautiful!!!!!

    Boy, this little guy can sing. I haven’t heard this song in a while and it blows me away… again!

    I love listening to all the songs David sang on American Idol. Maybe one day he’ll have a chance to record an album of all the great cover songs he does! I still think a duet between David and the late Eva Cassidy — in the style of Nat King Cole and Natalie — would be a huge HIT!
