With budding maturity, David Archuleta captures two years’ worth of introspection and reflection, dozens of songwriting sessions, long days spent in the studio and nights in the air, all leading to The Other Side of Down, his highly anticipated second album.
Not only the follow up to David’s 2008 self-titled debut, it’s a reintroduction to the American Idol runner-up with the angelic voice who 30 million television viewers fell in love with during season 7—now older, wiser, with faith still on his side and an eternally optimistic wide-eyed outlook. Hence, the album’s title. “For me, it’s about moving forward and making progress,” David explains. “I’m heading towards ‘the other side of down,’ which is ‘up.’”
If only there were two of you One to do what you have to do The other to stay behind for fans Your family and all the clan But that’s too selfish to consider We’ll have to be content with twitter And with the fact that there can be Only one @DavidArchie.
We want a worldwide birthday celebration for our special young man The tweet is : Happy Birthday David Archuleta , include @davidarchie in your tweets to reach all his followers.
Ha! Richard Chamberlin sang: “Why Can’t I Be Two People!?” in The Slipper and the Rose. (One of my favorite shows.) I’ll bet DA thought that more than once as he was on AI and had to deal with all the demands that were put on his time, etc.
On the other hand, that picture of him on the video is almost overload. Maybe – wishes aside – one of him is enough. (Can you imagine two? One on each end of the stage? *_* Singing to each other!!!!!! Ramping it Up!!!!!!!!
Happy Birthday Mr. D, Elder Archuleta, Oldest son, Singer extraordinaire, Mission companion, David-heart-of-gold, Friend to many, and Almost Angel. Happy, happy birthday. May there be many, many more!!!
(No accident that this spark of life came to earth smack between two celebrations: one, of light; and the other, of new beginnings.)

feel like I have been living in a cave with no internet, no tv.haha but David and MOTAB ,and CFTH,got me through Christmas, and unpacking, slowly but surely the boxes are dwindling and more space is showing up in our new little apt.
Angelica, that cake looks scrumpdillyumptious and love your little poem.:)))
Happy Birthday,Elder Archuleta.♥
“Surely today he feels the change in the air currents drifting around the world as we all sing Happy Birthday to him.”
thought about him all day today.Seems like just yesterday he was just a “youngun”:)) Now look at him Dayzee,, he’s all ‘growed’ up… *sigh*
Hope David loved all his cards and letters for Christmas, and his birthday messages too.(?)
great birthday pic abs.
, haha fen, he definitely looks more yummy than the food lol! gahh… look at that hair♥
Welcome back Sky! It’s like the dark ages when your internet is out. I love the picture in #13 because he is being so careful to blow the candles ever so gently. His lips and the leaning flame are perfect.
I got a big envelope today in the mail.It had a Utah return address. I was so excited. I thought a fan had sent me the 2013 David calendar. OHH!! When I opened it there was a lovely Utah tourism calendar. It was sent from the Utah tourism office. I wonder why they sent it to me? It’s hanging in my “kitchen” which doubles as the laundry room. ( Long story )
I also received a Christmas card and B’day card recently. Both were HAND MADE by Tawna. She puts a lot of effort in her cards. Thanks Tawna!
Thanks for the weather report in Chile, Abrra. I’m freezing my tuchus off.
That pic in #13 is sweet. What struck me is, who blows out candles from that far away? Someone with the lung capacity to force a sufficient volume of air through a vocal chord to hold a note for like a minute and a half, that’s who.
