David Archuleta's Weekly Review

David's Week In Review

Hello to All Fans!

Big news this week, 'Crush' almost reaching that 2 million mark!!  Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!  David Archuleta in Los Angeles this week taking in the sights and riding the Metro train.  Yes, it does cost less than a cab, way less!  Songwriting still continues and we get a vlog talking about May Day and flowers, laughing, his giggle, smiling and no hint when his single will be coming out.  He does know how to torture us!!

Following David around is so much fun!  This week would not be complete without him twittering about food in some way and he did mention one of his favorite glorious stores:  Trader Joes!!  Haha!  Good for you David!  Have a great week!

Chart Watch Extra:  Americn Idol's - Million-Sellers

 David Archuleta, the Season 7 runner-up, was just 17 in November 2008 when "Crush" topped the million mark in paid downloads. That made him the youngest Idol contestant to top 1 million. (Jordin Sparks had already turned 18 by the time "Tattoo" became her first million-seller in January 2008.) But Sparks is the youngest contestant to top the 2 million mark. She first achieved that milestone in June 2008 with "No Air."




8. David Archuleta, "Crush," 1,918,000. Dave Hodges, who co-wrote Clarkson's "Because Of You," also co-wrote this smash. This was the first single from Archuleta's eponymous debut album. Hot 100 peak: #2.

David's Updates



David took to twitter the other day and decided he need a new avi the other picture was already too old!
With a little help from his fans he choose this one from Britweek when he performed in Beverly Hills, Ca. last week!  Very dapper!


Friday 30th

David is twittering he has measured his height!  The same as two years ago!  Has he stopped growing?
He asks the question, but most guys still grow until their 21!  Perhaps David, you are not measuring correctly because from where I stand you are as tall as tall can be!!!




Saturday May 1st

New vlog from David!  Happy David!  Still in Los Angeles enjoying his free weekend hangin with a buddy.  More writitng next week and he is looking forward to Cinco de Mayo!  Is there anyway we can get him to give us just a little clue as to when his single will be out?  Please, please Mr. Achuleta can we have just a little clue!!!





Weekly Favorite


This picture of David brings back such tender moments from American Idol Season 7.  When he sang 'Imagine' on the Top 20 we all glued ourselves to the television in awe, and when Simon Cowell asked David to sing 'Imagine' on Season 9 we jumped for joy.  This picture shows a more mature David and his latest rendition was brilliant.

John Lennon wrote 'Imagine' but David Archuleta was born to sing it!!!!
