Hey Hey Hey look who’s a sexy latina!
David Archuleta: It’s entirely possible that the word “cutie” was invented for former American Idol finalist, David Archuleta, 18. It’s also fitting that Archie’s first single (which made it to #2 on the Billboard 200 chart) was called “Crush,” because every Latina staffer (and every Latina I know) has a major crush on the 18-year-old Honduran with dimples. David also has an infectious smile, and as we all know, an amazing singing voice, but what really makes him stand out is that he’s a genuinely nice guy.

Fan Pack Reviews from fans
From Amelia Abdul Rashid:
Ok…well. This song..most of us love it!! Sadly when he was in KL he did not sing it. Now, we got the fan pack, its like great because this song is featured in it!! And..boy is it GREAT! I never heard him sing as great as this song. Hehe..studio versions are always the best. The backing vocals are great too. 🙂 LOVE LOVE LOVE this song..kept playing it yesterday nonstop when i got it!
A THOUSAND MILES
another cover that he sang which is amazing. But, it’s different in the fan pack. Because its the unplugged version…and I am thinking and hoping it is him playing the piano…LOL.. he has the most pure and soothing voice of any other artist I have ever heard. sighh…again..no words to describe how he sang the song. can’t help but forget that this was a cover… haha!
TOUCH MY HAND [VIDEO]
the video was great because it’s like a video of his concert, showing his fans.. therefore its great. Shows how much he loves us fans! we love u too David!!
I don’t know what to write anymore… but to those who has it i know u guys agree with me that it’s such a wonderful…brilliant EP! 😛 for those who has yet to get one…get it fast!!:P
From Nur Zulaikha:
Thank you John, Anne, AAM and the generous donor! =] As soon as the downloads were finished, I listened to it and OMD!! Zero Gravity rocks!!! I was like “am I in a club?” LOLL.. I started shaking my head and singing along “nothing bring me downnnnn when you’re aroundddddd~~~” xD
A THOUSAND MILES
Then I listened to A Thousand Miles. What the…….. is David singing that to me? His voice touched my heart. I cried listening to it. x) Hah, just indescribable. The air piano and his voice combine together. Just heaven, HEAVEN.
TOUCH MY HAND VIDEO
And, OMD. Touch My Hand video clip!! Gosh, that’s like the best vc!! xD I like it when they colour some parts of the video and focuses on David’s face. lol! Oh, and I definitely love the ending!! woot!
Thank you again to those who helped me get this fan pack. Keep on loving David Archuleta!! yeahhh~ ZG ROCKS!!!!
From Debbra Toria:
A THOUSAND MILES
[For the record, Crush MV was on MTV when I wrote this. And I’m losing my concentration.. Lol]
I wouldn’t compare Vanessa Carlton and David’s rendition together cause each one of them has their own way delivering the song. BUT, when David sings it, it’s simply haunting. This song has such wonderful lyrics and David sang each verse with passion [which he always does] to connect with us, his angels.
“And I need you, and I miss you..“
It certainly sounds better than the previous version. I noticed the background vocals he did and it complements the song very well. There were also some changes on the tune of the song, making it more sorta like addictive cause I know everyone, and I mean, EVERYONE would start singing/dancing along when they listen to this!
TOUCH MY HAND MV
Splendid. Just splendid. With a black and white theme (although there were some touches of colours – mostly blue – on some parts), the MV certainly has succeeded in giving us the feel of our reminiscence of him when he was with us. TMH is such a fitting song for this and throughout the video, I like it when at one point, they focused on David’s hand trying to reach one of the fan’s hand. Simply clever, dontcha think?
I always try to find the right word to describe his music although it means I’d have to go and look up at the dictionary. Seriously. I know I’m not the only one who has experienced this kinda situation.
And then I thought to myself.
His music is beyond words. And David is just too wonderful for words.
He’s no 1!!
Zero Gravity is no 35, ATM at no 47 and Crush is at no 56 on iTunes pop songs and the album is back in the top 100 pop chart WOOOT!
Zero Gravity goes international!
In Russia of all places! Found this at FOD 🙂

Children Uniting Nations Gala
Firstly what is Children Uniting Nations all about?
Founded to protect the children who have no voice, whose fragile lives are being abused and lost by the millions due to uncertainties out of their control.
It is a proactive organization created to bring attention to the plight of at-risk and foster youth. The goal is to reach as many children in out-of-home care by offering role-model support, guidance, a sense of community and promote the importance of an education. Inspired by the Day of the Child, CUN wanted mentoring to be more accessible to children living in foster care and therefore created a mentoring program to be administered in every city nationwide.
