David Archuleta: A Bioagraphy

David Archuleta

An Introduction

David Archuleta is a very talented singer. Born in Miami, Florida, Archuleta moved with his family to Murray, Utah. He began to take the headings in the newspaper when he was sixteen. Archuleta tried out for the hit television series American Idol. The young teenager didn’t win, unfortunately, but did win 2nd place and started off on a career in music.

The First Album: David Archuleta

Firstly, Archuleta’s first album, published in 2008, was a self-titled album called David Archuleta. It contains many amazing songs, such as Crush, Touch My Hand, and A Little Too Not Over You. Also, all of the songs take his awesome voice to a new level. The creative songs give light on David’s talent and future in music. Finally, To Be With You is the best song on this album for me.

  2. Touch My Hand

The Christmas Album

Next, his second album was another success. It was released a year after his first and was a Christmas album. Firstly, the album, titled Christmas From the Heart, was made with many incredible traditional Christmas songs and some original songs written by Archuleta. I’ll Be Home for Christmas, O Holy Night, and Silient Night are favorites included in the album. On this album, my favorite is Pat-a-Pan because of the cool arrangement and how the beginning is in French.

The Other Side of Down

With his third album, David’s producers told him he had to have a love song on the album. Hating the idea of singing a cheesy song like Justin Bieber sings, David decided to write his own love song. The title is My Kind Of Perfect, and is my favorite song on the album. Secondly, Complain, Good Place, and Things are Gonna Get Better are awesome songs also included in the album. Finally, I just have to say that all of the songs are great and you should listen to them all.

This album was different than some of his other albums. It is full of covers that he did. Some songs, such as Be Still, My Soul and True Colors, are wonderful and show his talent in singing softer songs. Everybody Hurts, another song on the album, has a lot of cool singing parts. For me, the best song on this album is Be Still, My Soul because it brings out David Archuleta’s feelings about singing.

Songs on this album

  1. Beautiful
  2. Somewhere Only We Know
  3. Everybody Hurts
  4. Don’t Give Up
  5. Angel
  6. Bridge Over Troubled Water
  7. Broken
  8. True Colors
  9. Pride (In the Name of Love)
  10. Be Still, My Soul


Sadly, I haven’t listened to this album very much, so I don’t have a favorite. I’m sure that the songs are great and wonderful, but, again, I haven’t heard a lot of it.

Songs on this album

  1. Forevermore
  2. Rainbow
  3. I’ll Never Go
  4. You Are My Song
  5. Hold On
  6. Wherever You Are
  7. Maybe
  8. Tell Me
  9. Reaching Out
  10. Nandito Ako
  11. Forevermore (Minus One)
  12. I’ll Never Go (Minus One)
  13. Rainbow (Minus One)

No Matter How Far

This one is a little confusing. For example, Forevermore, Tell Me, and I’ll Never Go are all on this album as well as on Forevermore. First, I like a lot of the songs, but I don’t have a favorite for this one either. Finally, the more times I hear it, the better I will like the album.

Songs on this album

  1. Nothing Else Better To Do
  2. Everything and More
  3. Don’t Run Away
  4. Tell Me
  5. Love Don’t Hate
  6. Wait
  7. Heart Falls Out
  8. Notice Me
  9. I’ll Never Go
  10. Forevermore

Postcards in the Sky

For the most part, David Archuleta had a new album every year from 2008 to 2013. However, Postcards in the Sky was just released on October 20, 2017. Postcards in the Sky, unlike other albums, shows who he is as a person. Firstly, he wrote them all himself (with the help of a few others). For the most part, all of the songs have a special meaning and background. Secondly, the best songs, which is SUPER hard to figure out, for me are Numb, Up All Night, and Other Things in Sight. Thirdly, a lot of the songs are very emotional, like Upset with Me and Say Me. For example, Say Me was written about how David Archuleta works with an industry called Holt Industries, which helps support orphans.  Finally, the songs provide insight to some of his feelings about life and joy.

Songs on this album

  1. Postcards in the Sky
  2. Invincible
  3. Numb
  4. Someone to Love
  5. Spotlight Down
  6. I’m Ready
  7. Other Things in Sight
  8. Say Me
  9. Upset With Me
  10. Up All Night
  11. Waiting in the Stars
  12. Seasons (feat. Madilyn Paige)
  13. Cracks of Heaven
  14. Shine a Light
  15. Aiming for Hope
  16. A Little Goes a Long Way
