If any of you watch American Idol like we do, you've probably noticed the great voice of David Archuleta. At our home he is our choice for going all the way.
David and his family live just about 3 blocks from our house. Bobby, our 14 yr old, is in the same Boy Scout troop as David's younger brother. You've probably noticed that on America Idol they say David is from Murray, Utah. If you've seen our People magazine article is says we live in Murray, Utah (a suburb on Salt Lake City).
We've seen their family at Boy Scout functions and church as well. In fact, Robin, about a year and a half ago heard him perform a hymn at a church event. She said he had the voice of an angel and was pretty much swooning in the pew. Afterwards she approached the then 15 year old David and told him he is an INCREDIBLE singer and has one of the most beautiful voices she has ever heard. He then smiled his now well known sweet, boyish and slightly shy smile.
She said she's an aspiring screen writer and she would love to have him sing in her movies and would he be interested. He expressed some interest, so he gave her an email address to keep in touch. When she heard that he was going to be on Amercian Idol, she was very exited. She's watching the show now just to hear David, and watch him win it ALL. She still hasn't used David's email, and probably won't use it more than once now--just to wish him well. She says she probably won't be able to afford him now that he's already a super star. Have you noticed how the girls go CRAZY when that boy hits the stage?! Wow, this kid's amazing. Don't forget to vote for our boy David Archuleta!
