David Archuleta to Record New Album en Español?
by Michael Lopez, Blogamole
29 September 2010

We love hearing about music artists getting in touch with their Latin roots. So what if they’re not native Spanish speakers, the fact that they are interested in reciprocating the love to their Latino fans is good enough for us. And now pop star David Archuleta’s talking about belting out his next batch of hits en Español!

In a phone interview with HitFix.com, David mentioned, “I really wanna do a Spanish album. I have that Latin culture background. It’s a part of me. I’m not the best Spanish speaker, but I have a longing to connect with that. I just think how supportive the Latin community has been, even during ‘Idol.’ I’d like to give back with something like that.” Pretty awesome news! Although it may take a little while until we hear his big Spanish debut. Right now David’s got his hands full with the release of his second big record, titled The Other Side Of Down.

David Archuleta and Alison Sudol Meet-up
from Idolator.com
30 September 2010

Idolator's Meet-up of David Archuleta and Alison SudolPop singers tend to be busy people. But that’s no reason for them to lose out on the chance to meet new friends who share common interests — even if those friends are also busy pop singers. Which is why we recently took it upon ourselves to introduce two amazing artists who didn’t know each other, but should. We arranged a visit between the velvety smooth singer David Archuleta and the sprightly songbird Alison Sudol, who performs as A Fine Frenzy. (We genuinely had no idea at the time, but she inspired the title track on his new album, The Other Side Of Down)….

NOTE: Go see both videos of the meet-up at Idolator.com!

    Thanks, WG! I appreciate your comment. Hope you are enjoying the weekend. Only two more days until DA-Day! I’m hoping The Other Side of Down will be moving UP the charts ASAP.

    By the way, if anyone noticed, I removed the videos from David’s website. Still trying to find a Brightcove video embed tool that won’t break my valid XHTML. 😉

    So, please go to DavidArchuleta.com to see his Central Park videos.
