In the Style of David Archuleta

From yesterday's feature ... oh well, it took it a while to sink in, especially since I had never heard this song before. It's still pretty rough, but it's a sweet song and considering the "urban theme" [elevators, which are quite numerous in my urban world], I am sending this to Alicia, who has been riding life's elevator for the past few years, but thankfully she's come to our floor lately. Thank you. I didn't know anything at all about David Archuleta and after consulting Wikipedia, it was clear why! I've never watched Star Search, nor America's Got Talent, nor American Idol, nor any other show like that. OK, I did see youtube clips of Susan Boyle. It's not the idea of such shows that bothers me, but the reality of them ... well, sorry all you fans out there. "David James Archuleta (born December 28, 1990) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. At ten years old, he won the children's division of the Utah Talent Competition leading to other television singing appearances. When he was twelve years old, Archuleta became the Junior Vocal Champion on Star Search 2. In 2007, at sixteen years old, he became one of the youngest contestants on the seventh season of American Idol. In May 2008 he finished as the runner-up, receiving 44 percent of over 97 million votes. In August 2008 Archuleta released "Crush", the first single from his self-titled debut album. The album, released three months later, debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart; it has sold over 750,000 copies in the U.S., and over 900,000 worldwide. In October 2010 he released a third album, The Other Side of Down featuring lead single "Something 'Bout Love". On March 28, 2012, Archuleta left on a two-year hiatus to be a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Chile, but stated that he will continue his music career after that. As of February 2012, Archuleta has sold 1,108,000 albums and 3,327,000 tracks in the United States. In March 2012, Archuleta released his fourth album, Forevermore, exclusively in the Philippines only. This was his first Original Pilipino Music album, composed of several covers of Filipino songs. The album was certified gold in the Philippines (10,000 units) as of June 2012. Archuleta's fifth album, Begin, was released on August 7, 2012, in the United States. His sixth album, No Matter How Far was released on March 26, 2013." Thanks again to the feature for broadening my horizons a bit.
