Created to musically portray his connection to God, this album is filled with some of modern music’s most moving contemporary songs such as “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon and Garfunkel, “Angel” by Sarah McLachlan, and “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper.

These songs, together with a selection of upbeat melodies such as “Pride (In the Name of Love)” by U2 and a completely original, never-before-heard song written by David, are sure to make this album an enormous success.

Pre-order “BEGIN.” on Deseret Book now!

Today, June 11, 2012, marks the tenth anniversary of “American Idol,” and in that time the music competition TV program has racked up some jaw-dropping numbers: Many episodes have drawn over 30 million viewers; and a record-setting number of 132 million votes were cast for the most recent season finale. But the impressive numbers aren’t just restricted to viewers and votes, they also apply to the Billboard charts, where the Idols have earned an astonishing 345 No. 1s (including four new ones in the current chart just this week) across the broad array of tallies compiled every week in different musical genres. Those 345 titles have spent an aggregate 1,142 weeks in pole position.

The Adult Contemporary and Adult Top 40 charts have also been dominated by Idols. Clarkson was the first to top charts in both formats, followed by Daughtry. Locke has three AC No. 1s, all with holiday songs. Underwood has also topped the AC charts, along with Elliott Yamin, David Cook, Sparks and David Archuleta, while Allen and Lambert have reigned on the Adult Top 40 charts.

From @MyDearWriter:

Happy that D’s 2nd music video is I’ll Never Go ☺ There’s actually a little story about the song. Makes me smile everytime I think about it.

If the little story was part of a script, the sequence would be like this: Insert FlashBack: INT. Ocean’s Park. Night. (with acoustic music)

@kariontour HAHA! I thought I’d write a whole scene & describe everyone that night. Oh & it happened while waiting for the handstand scene.

From @kariontour:

@finaputri04 It was Feb 14th in Manila. The same day he filmed the Forevermore video and photo shoot for the album. It was a long day.

@finaputri04 Tired? Never! After the shoots we had dinner and then off to the @ogiealcasid and @reginevalcasid concert where he performed

@angedafan@ohmyJOSHashley HAHA it was a vneck tee not a tanktop!

@rocktellme lol! most of u thought it was just a “still camera” in the pic. I could not say a word. Wanted u all to be surprised for the MV

Great make me do it! Haha We just arrived at Ocean Park & there was a 2 piece band playing in the lounge area where we were holding & a lot of the cast & crew starting singing along w/ the band. @DavidArchie looked around & said “what is this song? How come everyone knows this song?.” He asked @MyDearWriter what the song was all about & she explained it & told us it was used in a movie. Our wonderful Macky & @JoAnnBanaga sang it to us! It was a song that stuck in his head when asked to record the album. We asked if he could record it and the rest his history! Memories!

@BoeingCLaugan1….far away from you @DavidArchie sang. He was worried about singing this song just because of that!

From @anagfeleo:

@kariontour when we hd to runthru his lines for that scene, he wanted to go somewhere priv and he led me and the mib to this maze-like area.

@kariontour when we did the lines,he did evrythin incl the hand stand!he didnt stop till he was comfortable sayin those cheezy lines of mdw!
