Yes, David Archuleta can sing anything .. including the massive phone book .. to bring this piece to an astounding viewing of 3 million in 3 days. That statement has been made many many times throughout the past 10 years he has been with us. And I totally agree.
BUT. I see this genre of songs as an edge for David. I’ve said that from Day 1 and I say it now. I could gloat (horrid me!) now and say “David, I told you so”. 😛
Don’t get me wrong. I love his INVINCIBLE, ELEVATOR .. etc too and I adore his cover and performance of HIGHER GROUND. These songs display his versatility (which seems to have no bounds!).
But THIS!! A ballad like PERFECT is the kind of song his voice is made for – the essence he is made of. The intrinsic nature of his gift .. the innate and congenital abstract quality that is his voice and his connection to music and emotions.
I’m not surprised PERFECT made it to a perfect response. We, of perfect faith in him, always knew he had it in him to shine brilliantly when he makes the perfect choice at a perfect time.
