Justin Bieber is no flash in the pan
by Nestor Torre
Philippine Daily Inquirer
11 June 2010

This article is about Justin Bieber’s sudden rise to fame, but the writer says, “First illumination: Despite his being the show biz flavor of the month, Justin can sing. His voice isn’t amazing, but it’s more than serviceable—albeit less striking than David Archuleta’s in tone and projection.”

music blog graphic for David Archuleta's blogs“Hey all! Just thought I’d give an update with what’s been going on lately. Since the book is now out, I’ve been doing book signings! The ones in New York and New Jersey were awesome! I also got to do one in Minnesota at the Mall of America and ride some of the indoor rides they have in the mall. Pretty fun stuff! I then got to go back home for a couple of Utah book signings. The first one was in Salt Lake City, and the second one was in Orem. They were both great! It was fun being surprised by people I knew coming by and seeing them in line haha. It’s been so neat getting to see everyone after such a long time being under a rock recording and writing. Thanks so much to all of you who have been coming out to the signings!….”

Mini Interview with David
by ArchiesAngel (Shayla), AFS’s Shayla Interview
7 June 2010

Questionnaire Interview with David Archuleta, Shayla on AFS, June 2010 During his busy book-signing week, David Archuleta took the time to respond to Shayla’s request for a ‘mini interview’ on paper. He filled out her questionnaire and signed several articles—including a pair of earrings!—for her and her friends in the Phillipines. He says his cellphone is always on vibrate. It would have to be because he carries it everywhere, even on stage and at the White House! Can’t have it ringing in the middle of the President’s talk, can we?
