David Archuleta Makes A Wish Come True

David Archuleta Makes A Wish Come True

David Archuleta popped in on his MySpace after celebrating the New Year to tell his fans all about his exciting week.

The 18-year-old “Crush” crooner writes, “I have an official resolution I have set which I’m going to try and keep up with this year, but I’m going to keep it to myself to see how well I do until the end haha… But if you guys don’t mind sharing your resolutions feel free to! I think it’s fun to know about those kinds of things. I performed at a thing in Orem, Utah called Newphoria which was great. My parents, little sisters, and a bunch of my friends were able to come and celebrate! I sang ‘ALTNOY’ and ‘Crush’, and there were some other really neat acts there. My friends, The Osmonds 2nd Generation who were also performing earlier, got a hold of me and invited me to do it. I thought it was a really fun way to celebrate while at home, and I was sooo happy to have my friends and family there with me. We had a blast! Ashley Tisdale was also there hosting. We danced like idiots, and I got some good exercise out of it.

“This weekend I went to San Diego to visit a girl for Make-A-Wish who was having a very difficult time battling cancer. It was probably one of the most special things I have ever experienced, and incredibly touching. It helped me even more to be motivated and act. We need to keep ..ing those who battle against such sicknesses. I want to thank those of you who are so strong in facing those kinds of obstacles, and are such an example of hope and strength. Something like that reminds me of what matters most in this life, and I hope to never forget that. I want to thank her and her family, and I want them to know I’m strongly keeping them in my prayers. I’m also so appreciative of Make-A-Wish for allowing incredible things to happen for kids and let their dreams come true. And THANK YOU!! to all of you guys for your donations that you’ve been sending for such great causes! A lot of you have made donations in my name, so thanks for doing that. I always think about how those donations will help out, even if it’s not a huge contribution. That small amount can help change someone’s life one way or another, and just thinking about it gives me the chills. But anyway, sorry for going off on that, I just felt like it was something important to let out.

“Today I’ll be singing at Utah’s Governor Huntsman‘s inauguration, and even though it’s FREEZING… it should be a good time. I actually sang at the Governor Huntsman‘s inauguration the first time lol. But yeah. It’s actually so hard to sing when it’s cold! I tend to lose my voice in cold weather, and I must be cold-blooded because I just don’t do well with low temperatures. I’ll let you know how it went in my next blog, but I better get going here. Unlike my last blog, this is pretty long haha. So I’ll talk to you guys later!”

    I have never been interested in a governer of Utah before until now. haha. I am from Illinois. No offense, governer. But David is so worthy to be invited. His blog is always fun to read. It’s like reading my close friends’ blog. Always honest and down to earth. I miss seeing him on TV. BTW, I hear that an episode on MTV ‘Made” featuring a guy who was inspired by David airs on Jan, 10, Saturday, at noon. They say that David will make an appearance on the show. Hope this info is right. I can’t wait this Saturday!!
