David Archuleta: will he be the next American Idol?

After Jordin Sparks, who made history as the youngest American Idol without being at stake in the bottom three, will David Archuleta, Season 7's contestant be the next on her footsteps?

With the succeeding weeks, he haven't been in the bottom three along with David Cook, his closest rival. But being the youngest among them, this 17-year old singer is definitely making his way to stardom.

Here are some facts about David Archuleta from American Idol 2008

  • His hometown is in Murray, UT and he auditioned in San Diego, California
  • His favorite quote: "You'll never be lonely if you befriend yourself"
  • Musical influences are: Natalie Cole, Stevie Wonder, Kirk Franklin and Bryan Adams
  • His inspirations so far are his faith and family
  • He sang on the several episodes of the television show Star Search and went on to win the season finale with $100, 000 grand prize.
  • Inspired by the Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Video he was watching, he began pursuing his singing career at the age six.
  • He started performing as an entertainer at ten when he participated in the Utah Talent Competition with the song piece "I Will Always Love You" by Dolly Parton where he received a standing ovation and first place in the kids division.
  • Currently, his fans are dubbed as "The Archies" or "Arch Angels".
When asked about his edge among the contestants, he noted "by being who I am and loving what I'm doing". Whether this matinee American Idol contestant will make it to the top or not, surely, we will never forget his song piece "Imagine" which brought tears to Paula Abdul's eyes as well as to the American televiewers. So far, this, I think is the most outstanding performance among his other 'best' performances' in the show. I just hope he'll make it among the rest so he'll reach more people's hearts with his angelic and soulful voice.
