Today, Archies/ Arch Angels around the world celebrate the first anniversary of the radio premiere of Crush, David Archuleta’s first single.
This video captured David’s reaction when Crush was first played on radio last year. I have to admit that today, a year to the event, was the first time I ever watched this video. His priceless sense of awe and wonder – almost humble disbelief that this was happening to him, was so real; it made him so human. It made my love for him bubbly over, made me feel I want to gather him in my arms in a sisterly fashion and give him a good encouraging hug-and-pat. But all this is now merely history and David has made huge strides in his career, having grown in self-confidence, acquired a sharper sense of acumen in the music business, and developed a greater distinct individuality in his musical style that one can only associate with David Archuleta. Still, a core part of David never changes – his sense of appreciation for his faith, family, friends, management and FANS who have made this possible for him – this sense of awe and wonder that keeps him grounded that we witness first-hand in this video. I hope, NO, I’m confident that we’ll see this endearing, humble behavior from him through the many more future song and album releases.
