David Archuleta ~ Portrait of a Man

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, June 21, 2011

In a recent interview with Yes World, David painted a portrait of himself. It is the portrait of a man. A man of deep convictions and a will of iron.  A man of clear-eyed vision and remarkable patience. A man of wisdom and courage. The kind of wisdom to “know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em and know when to walk away” and the kind of courage to say no to what feels wrong, let the consequence follow. In this interview is revealed a man who is nobody’s puppet. A man who is not afraid to chart his own course, who can not be bought, and who will not be moved from the path he has set for himself. He will be true to the gift he has been given from that God he relies upon. He talks candidly of leaving his label and management. He tells of other offers he has had to sign with other labels. He turned them all down in order to find his own direction and his own style.

What did they offer him? They offered him money. He knows it can’t buy happiness. They promised him fame. He knows that “gets old fast.” They offered him the world and he chose the road less traveled. He chose to stay true to himself and to the kind of music only he knows is right for him. No one can tell an artist what to paint or what to sing or write or in what direction he should grow. That kind of growth needs time and space to develop and thrive.  David is wise enough to know that and he is not willing to compromise his genius. He would not call it genius, he is too modest, but we all know what is at stake here.

There are so many things about this interview I find irresistible: the powerfully simple statement that God is his mentor and guide. His incurably romantic yet patiently responsible views on love and marriage and having kids. My absolute favorite part is where he paints a scene, thrilling in its boldness (love the ego) of the present unfolding into a future of his own making, a future of his decisions married to his vision and his unshakable belief in himself.

“I want to spend time writing, get those songs together, and then go out and say I’m ready. I’m ready to make an album and show it to the record labels and say this is the music I’m going to do. Are you supportive, do you believe in me?”

 

Now that’s how a real man does it.
