What is pop singer Paul Anka doing these days?
Timothy Tyrell, Chicago, Illinois

He’s putting the finishing touches on his autobiography, set for publication this year. “I’m also working on a Broadway show about my life,” Anka, 67, tells us. “I’d like David Archuleta (17 year-old American Idol Runner up) for the lead, because he reminds me so much of myself as a young singer.”

(David’s talent is so far beyond just stage productions; I would not like to see him boxed and packaged into just this type of entertainment.)

Popwatch – iPod embarrassment – The Artist Photos – You flip? by Mandy Bierly

Crush is her favorite song! But flips picture of David when playing! “I can’t take a chance that someone might see his face in the 45 seconds it takes for the screen to go dark.” She should have her iPod taken away very carefully! Not want to show David’s beautiful face! Great looks and great talent should be shown. I parade my ipod around for everyone to see. Get used to his face Mandy it will be around a very long time.

David’s Blog – Keeping busy in studio! Been recording in LA and Utah this week. Likes airplane rides because it gives him time to write and get really detailed in his journal. Christmas spirit is rubbing off on him! Had last show in Alaska which he felt was bittersweet! Glad to be home to catch up with everyone! It’s really been important to have that time with family. Important to spend time with them. The Christmas album is almost done though! So crazy! He is excited to start next pop album! Read entire blog.

pikepss’ Pick of the Week

David Archuleta singing “Joyful, Joyful”—Days of ’47 Pops Concert, July 10, 2004.

When I rediscovered this exquisite video of David singing Joyful, Joyful goosebumps went up my arms and I had a chill run through me. Even at the tender age of 13 David had the ability to capture the essence of spirituality through song. His voice surrounds you like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s night. Once you feel it you never want it to leave you. This video is 1:57 seconds and it took less than that to know this young man had something special. Sadly, the video equipment broke down and this is all that was recorded. Maybe someday soon we will hear David sing this song again! But for now, I just keep playing this 1:57 seconds over and over again reminding me just how lucky we are! Soon we will have an entire album to give us chills and goosebumps!!!!

    Goodness me! The video stopped. Do you know where the whole song might be?

    Excellent wrap up Pam! As you know, I’ve been working my tail off the last 2 weeks so this is a fantastic way to catch up. You are a charm!

    Mandy Bierly really begs the question by posting this on the Internet — I can’t believe she is telling the truth!

    It must have been a sad and joyful day when Jeff Archuleta heard David singing “Joyful, Joyful” Sad because they learned later that the recording equipment malfunctioned in the middle of the song. And joyful, well, you know why! Just listen to that voice.
