David Archuleta became a star when he was just 16. In 2008 more than 30 million television viewers fell in love with his angelic voice and their 44 million votes made him runner-up in Season 7 of American Idol.
Soon after, the young Utahan had his first single Crush, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week of its release. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the track sold 166,000 downloads that first week in the United States and subsequently more than 1.92 million digital copies. Three months later, David’s self-titled album, David Archuleta, went gold, selling more than 900,000 copies worldwide.
In 2010 David released his third album, The Other Side of Down and appeared as guest star on The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s holiday album, David Archuleta – Glad Christmas Tidings.
David went on to release his fourth album, Forevermore, exclusively in the Philippines in 2012 where it was soon certified gold. Later that year he released his fifth album, Begin. David’s sixth album, No Matter How Far was released in 2013.
In 2012, David as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, put his singing career on hiatus so he could serve a two-year stint as a missionary outside of Santiago, Chile, at the La Misión Chile Rancagua.
David returned from Chile in 2014, eager to perform and record once again. He has been touring all around the United States, Canada, Asia and even performed in the Middle East for the troops. He relocated to Nashville and last year released his seventh album Postcards In The Sky featuring all original songs that he co-wrote. David says it was an album of finding his own voice and that what he had to say mattered. Tickets priced at $46.50, $32.50 and $24.50 will be available at Ruth Eckerd Hall’s Raymond James Central Ticket Office, by visiting www.RuthEckerdHall.com.
