Photo of the Week: Aloha, David Archuleta

30 April 2010



David Aloha!The weather outside is frightful…I mean, delightful! It’s almost May, the month of flowers, and that means warm weather in the Northern Hemisphere. As we fans know, David Archuleta enjoys warm, even humid, weather. But as a frequent flyer, his experience of seasonal changes is often radical. He can be freezing in Utah one day and basking in the California sun the next. In the winter of 2009 it was cold even in Florida. David was there promoting his album and tour. Then he flew away to sunny Hawaii for a brief trip to sing at the Pro Bowl. Then he flew back to Florida to open the American Idol Experience at Disney. In less than ten days he had flown 12,000 air miles.

Photo of this week is…!

At the Pro Bowl on February 7, 2009, David Archuleta sang the national anthem in Honolulu. He was joined by more than 200 military volunteers and a spectacular flyover by Hawaii Air National Guard helicopters.

From Hawaii David wrote in his blog, “It’s so beautiful here, and I forgot how much I miss hot humid weather. It’s been a long time since I haven’t worn a scarf and jacket, because even last year during spring and summer, we were always inside cold studios or arenas…So before we went to Hawaii, I was in Florida doing promo. What was shocking is how cold it was there! I didn’t think I’d have to wear a jacket and scarf there, but it felt like Utah weather at some points…I’ll be heading back to Florida after Hawaii for the Disney thing this week, so I’m excited! I’ve been trying to not adjust to Hawaiian time, because I’m already in the Florida time zone mode lol.”

The Hawaiians were so excited they wouldn’t let him finish “Stand By Me.” Check it out on YouTube!

    3cota, thanks for posting such a lovely photo today. How can just looking at a photo make me smile and make me want to scroll back up for another look? David always looks great but this shot is better than great.

    I agree, kimbee, this shot is better than great! Like a flower, David’s face seems to turn toward the light. He is amazing. The camera loves him! Thanks, 3cota. This photo brightens my day.

    Thanks kimbee and minja for your comments. I love the glow around David in this picture…he just looks like all that is right in the world doesn’t he. And you are so right… you have to look ‘many’ times at this picture and the camera ‘loves’ David!

    Love this picture, I had not seen it before. David truly glows and he has such a sweet smile. Thanks 3cota for posting this, it brought a big smile to my face as well!

    Take care,

    bigarchiefan…that is my goal… post pictures that no one has ever seen. It’s really hard to do so I’m happy to know that this one was a welcome surprise for you. Thanks for your comment!

    This photo captures the wonderful time David had in Hawaii last year. I think he enjoyed every minute of it, from the Pro Bowl to the little bit of free time he had for sightseeing. I wouldn’t be surprised if at some point in the future David chooses to own a vacation property in the Aloha State!

    Thanks, Katheryn, for your comment. And I think that’s a wonderful idea! David could have a home in Hawaii…and a home in Nashville…and a home in Utah…and a home in LA…a home in all our hometowns! And he could give an annual concert in every home town.
