HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY DAVID ! ! ! ! ! !
What an amazing year it has been for you.
Thank you David, for everything that you have done for us – for touching and changing our lives with your music and just being your wonderful, amazing self. Never have we been more proud to be a fan of someone. Through everything, you remained true to yourself and showed us that it is possible to remain loving, kind, humble, and thoughtful of others first even in the pressures of fame and the industry. You are an example, a role model to us. You may have just turned 18, but David, we know in our hearts that you have a mature soul way beyond your years.
Thank you for being you.
Have a Happy and Blessed Birthday David.
your Malaysian archangels.

“They’re as much a part of it as I am..” – David Archuleta.
One of the quotes that stuck with me ever since the first time I heard it. And to go together with that quote, is this:

Seattle Times – Wishing David a Happy Birthday
But even with all that success, those around him say Archuleta is still humble almost to a fault. When I had the pleasure of interviewing him last July, he definitely exhibited traits that brought jeers during “AI”: a habit of rambling, a constant smile that made him seem even younger than he was, and an inability to say something negative about anything or anybody. But when you go deeper, you find him to be insightful, shrewd in the ways of the music business, and unwavering in his work ethic and commitment to his craft.
Richard Rushfield of LA Times – Special Birthday Post for David: Read This.
So let us wish a very happy birthday to this shining light of Season 7, of whom in all my reporting in and around the Idoldome, in conversations with his comrades, the people who make the show and the fans who have had the chance to meet him, I have never heard anyone say that he has ever for one second been anything but the nicest lad on Earth. Not a single diva story in a year of “Idol.” That is an accomplishment.
I wanna give Richard a hug.
and I just had to include this poem from his post:
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings — nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And — which is more — you’ll be a Man, my son!
