American Idol Season 7 Top 2 Finalist, David Archuleta, is releasing his first book, a memoir of his musical and personal journey to date, on June 1st!
I know I will be purchasing this book. David has so much to offer – his enormous vocal talent combined with his genuine strength of character is a rarity in the music business.
Sometimes when I watch the music award shows, the polluted musical nonsense masquerading as “freedom of art and expression” is enough to make me cringe.
Is the ability to plant your two feet on stage and just sing from your heart becoming a lost art?
And, let’s not forget Britain’s Got Talent winner, Susan Boyle, who’s first CD out-sold everyone’s CD during the Christmas/Holiday season.
Thankfully, there is light at the end of the dark tunnel as many more pure and true vocal artists begin to emerge and thus discovered, hopefully marking an end the to flash in the pan music stars and their equally flash in the pan songs.
So, in the spirit of musical excellence, I truly hope that everyone rushes out and purchases many copies of this book to give as gifts. David Archuleta is a rare gem and I ache for the day when I can see vocal excellence comparable to his on live television once again.
