I think this about says it all concerning our feelings for one David James Archuleta 🙂
Sometimes you meet people, and after you do, you’re so, so sorry you did. I can honestly say that pleasant vibes were hovering over “A Capitol Fourth”. I’m also happy to have heard authentic singers whose live performances don’t make you suddenly look at their recordings as some engineer’s science project. I want David to be like Gladys and Reba–still wowing audiences for years to come. It was a privilege to meet him. Not only is his future bright, but so is his present. I hope and pray that those tasked with the business concerning him will always remember that a human being is attached to the voice. I hope that, in their continuing efforts to promote him, they remember and respect the standards by which he lives. Far too many entertainers are sold the lie that certain destructive behavior is a part of the territory on the road to superstardom. Far too many burn out, find themselves in trouble, or sadly, die too soon because they embraced a lie. I want to grow up and be an old, old, old, old, woman and turn on whatever technology will serve as television in the future and applaud an older, wiser, prosperous, even more vocally satisfying David Archuleta.
