17 August 2010

Archuleta's Final Album CoverDavid Archuleta kicks his booted heels up on his The Other Side Of Down album cover, which was revealed today on the young crooner’s official site. “You may have seen an unofficial version of the cover around the internet, but you heard it here first folks,” says the website. “This is the OFFICIAL cover for David’s new album…” And judging by that wide smile, we’d venture to say Teen Choice Award winner Archie is anything but downhearted.

by goldstar, Archuleta Fanscene

The final chapter begins with a quotation from Albert Schweitzer: “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

David defines success and happiness and how they’re related. He mentions his dream of singing at the Olympics one day. (London 2012 Olympic Committee, book him now!)
