For some reason, it makes me RIDICULOUSLY happy when David gets a great review from a male. And believe me, this is a GREAT review. Not only does he rave about “Contigo En La Distancia” but he plugs David’s Christmas album as well. Yay Bill! Go leave him some love HERE, if you want..

David Archuleta’s Stunning ALMA Awards Performance
Sunday September 20, 2009
Even if you are not typically a fan of Latin music, this is a performance to see. This year’s ALMA (American Latino Media Arts) Awards were televised last Friday and featured a stunning performance from former American Idol runner-up David Archuleta. He won the award for Male Music Rising Star. When David Archuleta started to sing it quickly became obvious why he was deserving of such an accolade. He performed the song “Contigo en la Distancia.” The song is most closely associated with Mexican Latin pop star Luis Miguel. Now 18, David Archuleta sings with impressive maturity in voice and demeanor. This is one of the best performances of his career to this point. Look for a Spanish language track on David Archuleta’s upcoming Christmas collection Christmas From the Heart.
