DAVID ARCHULETA THE OTHER SIDE OF DOWN (ASIAN TOUR EDITION) ALBUM OUT NOW

The David Archuleta story began on Dec. 28, 1990, the day David was born to Jeff and Lupe Archuleta in North Miami, Florida. His father was a jazz musician who was always playing the trumpet around the house. His mother was a singer who performed locally with her three sisters in a group known as the Mayorga Sisters. David always enjoyed music, but wasn’t particularly fond of his dad’s jazz trumpet playing, covering his ears “because it was so loud.”

But then came one of those pivotal moments, when David was six years old and watched a videotape with his younger brother as his family was relocating from Florida to Utah. It was the 10th anniversary concert of the stage musical “Les Miserables” and David became captivated with the music, playing the tape over and over, memorizing each song, complete with cockney accents. Then he discovered and fell in love with other musicals like “Evita” and “Into the Woods.”  He also listened to his mother’s Selena and Gloria Estefan albums, but he didn’t pay attention to radio much and wasn’t really aware of pop music, until he watched the first season of “American Idol.”

He was first mesmerized by Tamyra Gray when she opened the Top 30 semifinals with her outstanding performance of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.” It was the first time he was aware of how expressive and soulful music could be, and what it was like to vocalize emotions. This was perhaps the most pivotal musical moment of his young life, the first step on the path that led him to who he is today, a musical prodigy, the runner-up for the seventh season Of “American Idol” and the newest artist signed to 19 Recordings/Jive.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Check out The Other Side Of Down: Asian Tour Edition which is now available at major record stores nationwide. It includes the new hit single, Everything and More.  It will also include four other tracks: Zero Gravity (from Spiderman), Love Don’t Hate, How To Breathe, and Wait.
