David James Archuleta is an amazing young talent that has already proven himself in the world of professional music, and will continue to stir audiences the world over with his amazing abilities. He does not strain to sing his songs, but his melodic voice is very soothing and pleasing. He has one of those voices that sweeps the audience away, and always leaves them wanting to hear more of his repertoire. He is destined to go far. As long as audiences will keep listening, David will keep singing, but then even if the performances should end (and I doubt they will), he will find a way to share his music, as music is in his blood.
This writer, like many of David’s fans are anxiously awaiting the young man’s return home from his two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (inadvertently called the “Mormon” Church by the media and others). Perhaps one of the questions in everyone’s mind is how soon David will return to making the music that we, his fans, love, and what genre of music will he choose to record. He is serving a Spanish-speaking mission for the Church, and so other questions that a fan might ask are: “How did serving a mission change his view of life and/or his personality?”, and “How will that play a part in the music that he will be recording?”
Personally, this writer would love it if David were to record an album in Spanish. Although I am not fluent in Spanish, it is something so beautiful and melodic about the language blended with David’s vocals that even without understanding all the words, David’s vocal expressions would help accent the meaning so as anyone listening will be able to understand the message of the song. After having served a mission, it would also be wonderful to hear David sing some of his favorite hums like “I’m Trying to Be Like Jesus” which he sang during one of his VIP concerts before leaving on his mission. Or, better still, perhaps he could record a new album of songs, and include a bonus album of his favorite hymns. Regardless of what he chooses to do musically, this writer will definitely be following his career.
