I go away for a couple of days to attend to some non-David business (yes, life does go on .. sometimes .. heh heh!). Could not believe my eyes when I returned to Archuland. First, I see Lips. Luscious Lips. Bright Pink Lips. I swoon from shock. I faint. Reeeaalllyyyy? David Archuletaaaaahh?? 😯
I pick myself up from the floor. I manage to click the button which denotes Forward. ….. He is singing al capella! But what is he singing??? Y tu Y tu Y tu ??? What do those pretty words mean??
A dash to Wikipedia gives me a quickie education. So he was singing in Spanish! – And You And You And You.
David’s voice is made for Spanish songs (and English. of course! 😀 ) So David is in love??!! Or perhaps he is preparing us for more love songs in the near future? Speculations!! 😀
What has intrigued me this morning (other than those .. Lips!) is some of the contents of the phone interview Brian Passey of The Spectrum conducted of him.
David says it took him a while to be comfortable performing again after the mission. Yes, we know that, David. It was our years of pining and misery. How can we forget?
Simply performing music wasn’t fulfilling for him anymore. He felt like he needed to do more than just go out on stage and sing. That’s when he decided to start talking to the audience about what the songs mean to him. Would you believe it! David now likes to TALK! Not just sing! Talk about one passion after another!
“I feel like in the entertainment industry it’s this never-ending high school phase,” he says. “You’re always trying to look cool and be popular. That really affected me. I was still myself but I think I was trying to be something else.” Always knew you were different from the others, David!
“I feel really good about who I am now,” says Archuleta, now 25. “I feel really comfortable in my own skin.” Yipee!! David has reeeaaallyy grown up!
