David Archuleta rediscovers Manila in October
This October 20, one of the most well-loved artists of the millennials is making a Manila comeback as Ovation Productions presents David Archuleta live at the Kia Theater.
Six years since his last visit, David excitedly conveyed his upcoming concert to Filipino fans through a video that instantly went viral.
Taking a break from his craft, David made a return through his much-awaited powerful single, “Numb,” which hit the airwaves last year.
“This is like a new beginning,” Archuleta enthusiastically revealed about the track, saying that he feels both rewarded and electrified by his own music. He added: “It’s not just taking another chance with music, it’s taking another chance on myself. … I need to be who I am or else I’ll go numb again.”
The American Idol album premiered fresh music through his single “Up All Night” just last April, two months prior to the release of his EP, Orion. The reinvigorating and retrospective melodies and lyrics render his new recordings unique.
David opened up about his new music, saying that he had constantly felt a need to be “perfect” and “invincible,” and those were what essentially generated his inner battles. To counter these doubts, David disclosed, “I have to tell myself], ‘It’s OK, you can let go. Let the armor down. Put the sword away.’”
