Music Monday on Empty Streets: Featuring David Archuleta

Posted 8:06 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: ,

David Archuleta is now truly a Pop Icon. With back to back hit singles streaking the airwaves there is no doubt that he is going to be sticking around for a long time.

Here are some fast facts about this little boy wonder from American Idol:
Archuleta's mother is from Honduras, and much of the music he listened to as a child was Latin-influenced including watching his mom sing at events with her sisters. She also "was big on dancing" according to Archuleta, and would "make" him dance to traditional music with his older sister. He also listened to jazz music, he said, from his father's collection as well as gospel, pop, rock and "soulful music." In a later interview, he revealed that his father was a jazz musician. Archuleta also said he enjoys Broadway musicals.

On his American Idol "Fast Facts" page, Archuleta cited his musical influences as Natalie Cole, Stevie Wonder, Kirk Franklin and Bryan Adams. When he listed his top pop music artists, he cited Natasha Bedingfield, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Bryan Adams, Kirk Franklin, and Robbie Williams. Like Elliott Yamin and another singer he admires, John Mayer, Archuleta tries to infuse his pop selections with a soulful vibe. In a Seventeen interview he cites Sara Bareilles as a clever singer-songwriter he looks up to.

Here is a video of his latest single:

I've not heard of David - I don't follow American Idol although it is shown over here. But that's a great song I'll be listening out for him when he hits the big time over here.

He does have a great voice... just something about him irritates me. Not sure what though. I think it's just because I like the other David on Idol more! :-)
