David Archuleta headlines the 2011 Sun Fun Festival in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina over the weekend.
The 20-year-old musician not only introduced his new band members at the concert, but performed a slew of songs — which included songs from both his debut and his latest album, The Other Side of Down, with some new arrangements.
David also included a few covers — “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” by Tears For Fears, “Blackbird” by Paul McCartney and “Gotta Get Thru This” by Daniel Bedingfield. Check out some of his performances below!
He tweeted after the festival, “Had such a fun time tonight in Myrtle Beach!!! So refreshing doing a show again. Thanks to everyone who came!”
David Archuleta gets ready to belt out the National Anthem as he waits on the field at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles on Tuesday (May 17).
The 20-year-old musician hinted on his Twitter that he’s going to be featured in a future issue of The Hollywood Reporter. “Had a cool American Idol reunion for a Hollywood Reporter photoshoot. Good seeing everyone!,” he posted.
Can’t wait to see it!
David is also heading back to the Philippines. In addition to announcing through YouTube about his concert in Indonesia on July 16th, David will also be in Manila on July 18th.
David Archuleta wears his Anaheim Ducks jersey proud as he sings the National Anthem before the game on Friday night (April 22) in California.
The 20-year-old singer belted the tune out prior to witnessing the Nashville Predators defeat the Ducks, 4-3 in overtime. The Predators went on to win the series.
David also will be performing at the Invisible Childrenâ€™s Break the Silence event in Nashville tonight. The Break the Silence event will take place at 18 venues across the country and a live video of the feed will stream online in order to help break the silence and raise money across the country.
The goal is for each person to raise $25 for The Protection Plan, which is Invisible Childrenâ€™s campaign to protect people from the Lordâ€™s Resistance Army violence in central Africa.
The 20-year-old musician first tweeted the video while in Delaware over the weekend, where he played a game of charity basketball for Duffy’s Hope.
David shared in a second video, “I think I have plenty of witnesses who were there to back me up, I can’t play basketball. Not even if it was to save my life (laughs). But it was fun! I had a great time and to help raise funds for the charity.”
David Archuleta “holds” up the Goodyear Blimp just before a ride on the Spirit of America late last week in California.
When Goodyear heard of the 20-year-old musician’s wish to get a ride on the blimp, they made it happen! The official Facebook posted, “Pilot-in-Charge Jon Conrad flew them along the scenic route up the California Coast along the Palos Verdes peninsula, and for over an hour he was rewarded with a private performance from David and his friends as they sang a medley of hit songs a cappella. A highlight of the once-in-a-lifetime flight for David was watching a pod of dolphins playing and chasing the SOA’s shadow on the water as it passed overhead.”
David tweeted, “Just got to do one of the coolest things I’ve always wanted to do!! Got to go on a blimp ride!!”
