Christmas from the Heart – David Archuleta
Tis the season where I prepare myself to do many blogs on Christmas releases – movies, music, books – but allow me to start a big early by talking about my favorite Star Search alum and American Idol Season 7 sweetheart, David Archuleta. What a talent he is – sweet, cuddly, and his smooth, young voice is always rewarding to listen to on a really bad day. I will never forget his rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine” on American Idol – it made me cry and feel a sense of passion that I do not often feel for cover songs. He is young and charming – what a character.
Listening to his Christmas album is no different – in the spirit of the holidays I always love to feel the “warm fuzzies” and drink a good cup of hot chocolate in front of the fire. His release “Christmas from the Heart” is one I would recommend anybody use for a good Christmas party or a cuddle session with a lover on a snowy night. This is David Archuleta doing his finest covers – from “Joy to the World” to the tear-inducing “Ave Maria” with the Salt Lake City Children’s Choir and the City of Prague Philharmonic – one of my favorite classics, beautifully covered. Grab your tissues.
Start your holiday season a little bit early – light up the lights, decorate the tree, and grab a good cup-o-nog – put in “Christmas from the Heart”, sit back, relax, close your eyes – and take it in. It is elegant – and coming from the vocals of such a young artist – it is one to keep in your collection – he has years to go in his career – and many Christmas’ in the future to make beautifully harmonized melodies – from the heart.
Favorite track: Ave Maria
Overall Grade: A
Recommended: Light your fires, get the family – absolutely.
