David Archuleta Sings Prayers For Children

David Archuleta Sings Prayers For Children

David Archuleta just didn’t have a message for his MTV viewers and fans during last Friday’s Hope for Haiti telethon, he had a song.

MTV correspondent Jim Cantiello is the one to thank for the impromptu song. He posts on the Newsroom‘s site, “I casually tweeted that we had witnessed a spur-of-the-moment mini-concert from Archuleta, and within seconds my Twitter was inundated with pleas from David diehards desperate to see the video footage that I had just bragged about. What started as half-joking bribes of cupcakes snowballed into a virtual cupcake drive.”

Jim finished up, “By Tuesday afternoon, a generous group of fans had raised $3,850 in mine and David Archuleta‘s names!”

    I was blessed to see David perform this live during his recent holiday tour. Such a soulful and heartfelt song. It would have been amazing if he could have shared this with all the viewers of the telethon. But thank you Jim for getting this video for us fans and you can always count on Archie fans to step up and help out…it is a great feeling to help other people in need.

    This is beautiful. David is beautiful. More people should see this. This little clip inspired me to donate more than anything I saw during the telethon. (I saw this, went online and donated and am back to say thank you for posting). Thank you David!

  • Kingston

    I like it. He seems a lot older than when he was on American Idol.

  • lucy86

    Beautiful song :). Love him

  • sarah

    David is the best acappella singer that I have known. Such a gifted vocalist. You know that his nick name is a ‘ walking jukebox ‘, right? You give him one word, then he has a song for the word. I am glad his heart is always right. When he sings, you can tell he is telling a story from his heart even in this short clip of video.

  • Mary

    Beautiful. Surreal. Thank you David for everything.

  • sv18

  • cathy

    Thanks for posting this! Wow, this song brings tears to my eyes because of how beautifully David sang it and also because of the sad situation the children in Haiti are in! David is such a beautiful person inside and out!!
