Why do we support David Archuleta? To reasonably answer that question I personally need to go back to Season 7 of American Idol.
I remember hearing from most of the Idols that they were very busy and had limited time for their required responsibilities. David Archuleta had an even tighter schedule since school was added to his daily routine. He once commented that he had to rehearse late at night because of the little time he had during the day. All of them had similar schedules.
It was reported some Idols in subsequent seasons felt that since they had a tight schedule and so much to do they did not have time to meet with fans. It must have been very difficult to fit everything they were requested to do in the time that was given them. Sometimes that is the price you pay for asking fans to attend your concerts and buy your albums.
Never did I hear a complaint from David about not wanting to interact with his fans. He was always the first one out and the last one to leave taking so much time with every fan making them feel they were the only one. Accepting gifts and thanking each fan for coming and hoping they have a wonderful time. Never a complaint even if one existed, it was never mentioned.
We were spoiled and are spoiled being fans of David Archuleta. He is kind, sweet, humble, considerate, respectful, thoughtful and sincere, underline sincere. He truly loves his fans and enjoys his time with us and also reminds us often if it weren’t for us he would not be where he is today. It’s because who he is as a person and his great talent that we watch his back and promote him. We buy his albums and constantly run to every concert and still want more. He is always there for us and we will always be there for him.
It is sad for those artists who lack David’ character and talent, their dreams will be short lived. David is one in a trillion and it would be difficult to emulate him. For someone so young he knows what is important – family, friends, his faith, and the fans who love him. He is involved in many charities to help serve others as he knows that serving others brings success, wealth and happiness.
He is dedicated to his artistry which gives him an edge over many others as fame is further down his list. An extraordinary gifted young man with loads of Character! David is widely respected, admired and loved as much for his genuinely honest personality as for his music.
