    I’ve only seen pictures from the ALMA awards show…can’t wait to watch tomorrow night…I can’t think of another artist more deserving of receiving an award for his musical accomplishments this year. He has worked constantly with very few breaks and has loved every minute of it…music is his life…his first love. Take a look at the picture of him sitting on the stage tonight…he goes to another place when he sings and he takes us with him…every single time! Thanks for taking us along, David…you’re simply the best!

    I heard he sang a gorgeous heartfelt ballad although nobody has tweeted the name of the song (I guess they are informed not to reveal until tomorrow). The pictures of his performance show why we fell in love with David. So gorgeous.

  • Kerri

    He did win the award and he sang his song in Spanish. It hasn’t leaked yet what song it was but it was in spanish and everyone that was there that tweeted said it was beautiful and amazing. I just love him and so so proud of him. 18 and all he has accomplished is astonishing….

    David Archuleta is so deserving of this award. He is one of the most genuine, hard working, unbelievable person I have ever met, with a voice that soars and captures your soul. He gives 110% to everthing he does, from performing on stage all year long, to taking time to help charities, sign autographs for his fans, work on a Christmas album while on tour, still performing despite the nasty allergies he suffered during the summer, to flying all over the country, lack of sleep and ALL WITH A SMILE ON HIS FACE!!

    David you simply amaze me and I am so happy that you were recognized for all your hard work!!


  • http://TDC archangel48

  • Sparkles2

    David Archuleta is so deserving of this award. He is the music star of all music stars. He outshines them all, yet remains humble and very thankful for all his blessings. David truly represents fine values and great work ethics. This is the type of role model our young people need tody. David has a Christmas album coming out on October 13, 2009 called, Christmas From The Heart.
