Bench Idol: David Archuleta
“American Idol” Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta has the makings of a Philippine idol. The talented American singer we’re all looking up to–for his talent and boyish charm–joins the international list of endorsers for one of the Philippines’ top local retail brands, Bench.
The 22-year-old Archuleta received his ticket to stardom when he won second-place (finishing as runner-up against David Cook) on Season 7 of American Idol in 2008 where he was actually the youngest contestant. But before American Idol, his talent helped him earn a performance at the Utah Talent Competition, The Jenny Hones Show and Star Search where he was crowned Junior Vocal Champion in 2003.
“Crush,” the first single from his self-titled debut album entered number two in the charts later that summer of the American Idol season while the full-length album followed in November. After which, Archuleta’s album went gold within several months and the singer spent the first half of 2009 touring with English pop rock band McFly in the U.K. and singer Demi Lovato in America.
To date, he is shooting for TV5’s series “Nandito Ako” and is recording for his OPM album “Forevermore.” And on top of these, he is currently the new poster boy for clothing brand Bench and professional hair care label Bench Fix.
Cool and casual in Bench pieces, David Archuleta proves that his boy-next-door looks are just as alluring as his singing voice. Bright plaid button downs, graphic tees, and track jackets give him a look reminiscent of a school boy with a face that’s hard to ignore.
David Archuleta certainly moves forward from his music career, adding acting and modeling on his list, with Bench and professional hair care label Bench Fix.

David Archuleta comes home: David has been in the Philippines filming a soap series for TV5 in his very first acting gig and while he’s had a blast meeting his fans and working on new projects, he’s headed home to Utah to get ready for his mission with the Church of Ladder Day Saints. Before he leaves on his mission, David has been busting his behind to some new music recorded for his fans, since he will be gone for two years. He posted a new video blog and revealed his plans to record some music for us when he gets back to America. He said: “I will still be working to get as much done for all you guys before I’m gone.” Check out the video below for David’s full video blog.
