Well its been a real whirlwind of activities in Archuland lately and I honestly can’t complain. It was a blast sharing the last couple of weeks with David, Kari, the Nandito Ako team and of course the Filipino fans who have been awesome with their updates. What an amazing ride, and like David, I’m kinda sad that it has come to an end. I’ve never been really big on soaps just because I don’t really have the time to follow and keep up with them, BUT you can bet I’ll make the time to see this one! After seeing the preview (which unfortunately has been taken down from youtube by the powers that be), I have to say that I’m pretty stoked about it!
Here’s David looking pretty spiffy and singing a beautiful version of the title song “Nandito Ako”
I believe this would be the 5th language that he has sung in and from all accounts, he nailed it! Even his idol Regine Velasquez commented on how he sounds so Filipino. Except for the words “Nandito Ako” which means “I am here” or “Here I am,” I have absolutely no idea what the song is about BUT with David singing it, I sure can FEEL every emotion of the song. If he can act as well as he can emote a song than he just might have a successful career in acting as well!
Amidst all the craziness of this new project, David took the time to come down to Singapore for a signing. None of the mods here were able to get to Singapore this weekend unfortunately but thank you for all the Archies who did make it down. Hope you had an awesome time and glad you could represent 🙂
David also had a special acoustic performance at the Fox American Idol party held at Avalon club tonight which apparently is only open for contest winners and selected few. Have to admit, its really difficult to know that he’s so near us performing and yet we were not able to attend, particularly as this would likely be one of his last few performances before he goes off on his mission 😦
Nevertheless though, really happy for those fans that were able to attend and hopefully they get video!!
Apparently, his setlist included Wait, Elevator, Heaven, Crush, MKOP, Good Place/Let It Be, My Hands (Acapella), TOSOD and… the Pokemon theme song?!? Wut?? What the heck? Who goes to a club and sings the Pokemon theme song?? LoL! Well apparently David Archuleta thats who! #likeaboss
David looked absolutely knackered but he was still so amazingly heartfelt in his interviews. If you haven’t yet, check out this great interview with MSN Entertainment Singapore where he talks about acting, his mormon mission and recording songs for the fans before he leaves.
“I’ll be leaving in a couple of months. I’ll be going for two years… . I’m not giving up music.”
Q. Do you think it will it (leaving for the mission) effect your (music/showbiz) career?
“I think so and I think it will effect it (my music career) in a good way because I’ll be able to grow in my own way while I’m gone. I’ll gain new experiences, it will inspire me emotionally. Music is an art, its a very emotional thing, so what you take in emotionally affects what you do as a performer so being able to take on these new experiences and meeting new people and having a new understanding of life I think will affect what my music will be like when I get back and also before I leave, i’m gonna try to record as much as I can and whatever I can of songs so that even though I’m gone, I’m gonna be releasing songs for the fans to listen to and connect to so that I don’t leave them with nothing, because I don’t want to do that …“
And this is his Thank You to the fans, for their support (from Blogtv.sg):
Not gonna lie, I’m seriously all choked up after that interview and the Thank You vid. He’s definitely one in a million and we really struck gold with this guy..
