4 years of being an "Archie"!
Oh my heck! I can't believe it's exactly 4 years ago today that I saw the amazing David Archuleta audition for American Idol on my TV! I was a Freshman in high school, now I'm one in college! He was 16 (since the audition happened the summer before it aired) and is now 21! I've told the story many times about how at first I doubted him and the rest is history, haha, so I won't do it again. That moment was very memorable though, for sure! But man, time flies! He's already had 5 albums (when you include the Asian Tour Edition of 2010's The Other Side of Down and 2011's Christmas special release, Glad Christmas Tidings, with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir), a best-selling memoir, and now Nandito Ako, a TV miniseries in the works in the Philippines, airing February 20th on TV5! He also left his record company last February in order to stay true to himself in this business and to go his own way; he managed to organize a Christmas tour all by himself, and it ran from December 1-21st 2011! It all started with David's decision to audition for the singing competition and everyone's recognition of his musical genius. He will be leaving on a 2-year mission for the LDS church in just a few weeks, but I am proud to say that I'm still a huge fan and will still be here when he returns. Can't wait to watch the show (and hear the song!) Nandito Ako (I am here)!
