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!”
