I have been traveling since I attended RootsTech 2015 and just returned a couple of days ago and wasn't able to post my thoughts on David's performance until now. Late, but never forgotten!
RootsTech 2015 was an incredible success, and we know that it was the individual experiences and stories that made it so, as well as many inspiring speakers and performances such as David Archuleta and Studio C at the closing finale. It was a striking finale to this year’s conference.
Life is about challenges, struggles, inspiration and beauty, and the beauty of David Archuleta’s voice touches us in a place that’s as personal as the place from which his voice was issued. The ecstasy of surrender he inspires and the response he can arouse once we’ve recovered our senses is astounding. His vocals keep getting more precise and more powerful. Without heart, there is not art and David has both. When he sings he lifts the spirit of his audience, he makes lyrics come alive.
A great singer is somebody who makes you believe what they’re saying, and you always believe David. His new song/video in Spanish “Nunca Pense” filmed in Costa Rica themed Family History to inspire Latino Youth’s to become more involved.
David also did a cover “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake a comedy Lip Sync “Jump” by Van Halen, “Don’t Run Away” and the ever popular “Glorious”.
Prior to the night’s closing finale a signing was schedule to meet David Archuleta and Studio C and the crowd of fans were lining up three hours before the schedule time. Many fans were turned away as time was running out as the finale was schedule around 5:15 PM.
Meeting David Archuleta is like spun sugar, you taste it and then it’s gone and you wonder when you’ll experience it again. Excitement filled the Foyer as David sat and signed autographs and the closer you got to him in line a feeling of awe consumed you.
A relaxed and confident young man performed that evening and his talent, spirit, and love of faith commanded the stage and won the hearts of all who attended.
