There is no question that David Archuleta is one of the greatest talents in the industry today. His music has an extra layer of magic. He makes you believe you could fly, dare to dream, be anything that you want to be.

A poised young artist stood before us in a great conference hall and gave us performances not matched by many. He soared. Every song was mesmerizing and he delighted the crowd of over 21,000 each night including the  Music and Spoken word on Sunday.

Handsomely dressed in a tuxedo with a green vest he delivered powerful and elegant performances with a vulnerability and charm with a touch of shyness.

After witnessing his MOTAB concerts, you know that your life will never be the same again. I can't even compare him to another singer because no other singers are in the same category as David Archuleta. 

Silent Night was breathtaking but The Cat and the Mouse Carol surprisingly was my personal favorite, for when he sang the words, "Love comes down and the Angels sang" I knew this song was waiting for David to sing it and caress each and every lyric.

David can modulate his voice to a whisper that is as soft as the evening's breeze and as subtle as the shadow of his smile. He loves singing and that love shines, you can feel his heart burst with joy.

Key qualities of a great singer must possess are range, timing, phrasing, pitch, timbre, emotional impact and originality of style. He has a unique quality in his voice, incomparable and amazing.

His control, dynamics and presence is just a step above others. His voice is unforgettable and when he sings you can feel the emotion of the song, you can feel his voice inspire you and sometimes gives you chills down your spine when he hits those high notes.

David was honored to have been asked as a guest singer with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and it showed through his humility and eagerness to share the adulation with other performers, Michael York, Choir and Orchestra. Another one of his dreams have been fulfilled and the Star within him keeps rising.
