Music Review: David Archuleta – The Other Side of Down
by Tyrone S Reid, Blogcritics.org
25 October 2010

Though not as exceptional as his 2008 self-titled debut, David Archuleta’s sophomore album, The Other Side of Down (Jive Records), is a consistently rewarding collection that moves swiftly through 12 tracks, kicking things off with the catchy, spirited opener (the title track) to the eternally optimistic album closer, “My Kind of Perfect,” which serves to wrap up the disc on a heartwarming note….

Tyrone S Reid is a Jamaican writer and cultural critic who is passionate about the arts and providing cultural information for people who need it.

‘Idol’ albums fail to make the top 40
from USA Today
27 October 2010

This week no Idols make the Top 40. Fantasia’s Back to Me ranks the highest among American Idol albums, according to Nielsen SoundScan, its 9,000 sales enough to put it at No. 46 on The Billboard 200. Carrie Underwood’s Play On and Daughtry’s Leave This Town also rank in the top 100, while the latest albums from David Archuleta and Adam Lambert make the chart’s bottom half….

Soul ticklers aplenty
by Pauline Limbu, República
27 October 2010

KATHMANDU – This week’s top spin is studded with soul-tickling creations from Orianthi, David Archuleta, Sheryl Crow, Akon, Ne-Yo, and Kelly Rowland. The best of the last few weeks’ releases, “Courage” by Orianthi, is one of the most entertaining secular yet genuine prayers ever; David Archuleta’s “Elevator” brings in a melodious dimension to elevator ride…. “Elevator” by David Archuleta is another song that arrives with a bang. In terms of music, vocals and lyrics, “Elevator” is subtle and strong. The song isn’t pushy, and allows the audience to go with the flow. Lyrically, I find its strength in the positive energy it keeps rolling just as Orianthi’s “Courage…” I would have the song as one of the best new releases with high prospects for commercial success….

David Archuleta, Wikipedia’s Most-Edited Music Star, and Either a Tenor or Baritone
by Daniel D’Addario, URLesque.com
6 October 2010

David Archuleta, American Idol runner-up in 2008, has become in 2010 the subject of a Wikipedia free-for-all, where the facts of his personal history and his career are up for grabs. On the “most edited pages” list for Wikipedia articles, his article sits at number 91 – very high for an artist who’s been on the scene for two years, especially as Michael Jackson is number 115….

from Angels for a Cause
24 October 2010

“It’s in the Bag” Fundraiser!

David Archuleta with Childrens Miracle Network, Washington D.C. October 2010Children’s Miracle Network has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983 from a televised fundraiser in a small studio to one of North America’s leading children’s charities. Founded by Marie Osmond and her family, John Schneider, Mick Shannon, and Joe Lake, CMN has raised more than $3.4 billion since 2008—most of it donated a dollar or two at a time. Children’s Miracle Network is guided by two simple goals:

1. Help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals.
2. Keep funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children.

Attention David Archuleta fans: your donation will help raise money for this worthy cause and you might win a cool David Archuleta-styled denim handbag. Visit Angels for a Cause to see all the artistic bags. With a donation of at least $10.00, your name will be placed in the drawing. The It’s in the Bag contest ends November 23.

Good luck!
