His squeaky-clean persona and angelic voice resulted in 44 million votes cast for this then 16-year-old contestant on Season 7 of “American Idol” where he was named runner-up in 2008 and making David Archuleta a household name.
Following his amazing television success, the young Utahn released “Crush,” his first single for Jive Records. Debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week of its release, the track sold 166,000 downloads in the U.S. and more than 1.92 million digital copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Within the next three weeks, his self-titled album went gold with sales of more than 750,000 copies in the U. S. and almost a million worldwide.
Archuleta, who has proven he can sell out the amphitheater of “The Canyon of the Gods” returns for the second time on Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28 to perform audience favorites, as well as a few new tunes his audience is certain to love.
