Happy Holidays – An interview with David Archuleta

David Archuleta

Since his second-place finish in American Idol Season 7’s intensely-contested battle of the Davids, eighteen-year-old David Archuleta hasn’t wasted any time making his mark on the pop music landscape. His self-titled debut record, released in 2008, was certified Gold, and both the album and its first single, “Crush,” reached number two on the Billboard charts.

After spending months touring both on his own, as well as with British band McFly and Disney star Demi Lovato, the Utah-based Archuleta continued to build on his successes this year with a new holiday album, “Christmas From The Heart.” The record was released in October, and features holiday classics as well as an original tune that he co-wrote himself.

Recently, I had the pleasure of chatting with Archuleta about his plans for the holidays and his next album during a break on his current tour. Although he reveals that he’s not a Christmas shopper, his sweet nature and abundant enthusiasm for everything he does will no doubt leave fans in the holiday spirit.
