David Archuleta Performs At US Open

David Archuleta belts his heart out to “America The Beautiful” as he performs at the 2009 U.S. Open held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City on Sunday afternoon (September 13).

The 18-year-old singer was joined by United States Marine Corps, 6th Communications Battalion, Brooklyn NY in the anthem.

David tweeted from the world-class tennis match, “Got done singing ‘America the Beautiful!’ So neat especially with the marines! Gonna watch some of the game now! Feeling really tired for some reason, but what a great day! Thanks so much you guys for watching tonight and your comments! Good night!”

    David is the only singer I know who could pull off this song with such emotion!! He sang his heart out and made eveyone in the stadium stand at attention…in AWE!!! I felt the tears and spirit of the song, that only he can make me feel!!! We are so blessed to have his musical artistry in the Music Industry. He outsings and outclasses everyone .
    After hearing about the VMA awards show last night, I am so happy that David’s inspiration is here to set the example for many of our young people. We sorely need him as a role model in our lives!!!

  • Trudy

    Wow – David Archuleta was amazing. I turned on the tennis match just because I knew David would be singing. I am a HUGE fan of David’s and just think he is an amazing singer/songwriter. Loved his version of America the beautiful. His voice is so soulful. Can’t wait for his holiday album that is coming out Oct 13 called Christmas From the Heart.

  • Astrid

    David is one of a kind. I love the verses he chose to sing in light of the anniversary of 9/11 having passed only a couple of days before. He has so much class and dignity at such a young age. Many of today’s stars could learn a lot from him. He looked and sounded great, as usual!

  • bridget

    Brilliant rendition! Sooo proud to be a fan!!

  • Cindyw

    The soft almost whispery vocals in the beginning are so beautiful. Then David belts out that powerful voice that sends a rush through your whole body! Spectacular!
