DA Photo of the Week

7 August 2009




David Archuleta Arriving at JFKI love this candid photo of David as he arrives at JFK under the watchful guard of a professional ‘star handler.’ David seems full of innocent curiosity as the bodyguard’s watchful gaze scans the scene to assure David’s safe arrival. Wearing backpack and sneakers that denote lightness in his spirited walk, David greets fans with a beaming smile. With his adorable fawn-like demeanor he embraces the world with amazing kindness, perceiving the good in all and everything. He’s a world-class ambassador who changes for the better each and every person he meets.

David will forever be a Honeybee’s source of inspiration.

In the years ahead many words will be written about David Archuleta. Writers will wax poetic. Critics will pen rave reviews. Journalists will tell a good story. But as writers have long said, “A picture is worth ten thousand words.” A single photo of David speaks volumes!

    These were heady days for David’s fans. It was the first time we had seen David out & about—Archuwalking, Archutalking, Archulaughing, and we were in a state of Archumania. A year later, most fans have packed our bags and moved to Davidland. His trip to NYC was wonderful. I still miss him singing “Stand by Me!” Was that the first time we saw the ‘hunker-down’?

    I remember this photo and some companion photos well. Even though David’s trip to New York was Idol-related, it was his first trip after Season 7 had ended, and David — and I think the rest of us — felt this wonderful sense of freedom and release.

    It was during my original viewing of this series of photos that I first noticed the almost mystical “glow” of David and how the light emanating from his eyes reflected his beautiful spirit. I remember how the song “This Little Light of Mine” instantly came to mind at the time.
