He’s back, Manilaaaaa!!! David Archuleta is back in town for a solo concert at the Kia Theater on October 20, 2017 as presented by Ovation Productions. The same promoter also brought us David’s concert back on July 18, 2011 at the Araneta Coliseum. And how time flew!
David has been in and out of Manila having appeared on a local TV series and as brand endorser all thanks to his runner-up win in Season 7 of the American Idol when he and David Cook landed in the final Top 2 of May 2008.
Taking a break from his craft, David made a return through his much-awaited powerful single, “Numb,” which hit the airwaves last year.
“This is like a new beginning,” Archuleta enthusiastically revealed about the track, saying that he feels both rewarded and electrified by his own music. He added: “It’s not just taking another chance with music, it’s taking another chance on myself. … I need to be who I am or else I’ll go numb again.”
The American Idol album premiered fresh music through his single “Up All Night” just last April, two months prior to the release of his EP, Orion. The reinvigorating and retrospective melodies and lyrics render his new recordings unique.
Twenty six year old David’s music break allowed him to rediscover himself both as an individual and as a musician. He said: “ Music has to have a purpose now for me, and that’s really motivated me moving forward.” Furthermore, he released Orion as a segment of a three-part EP series that he hopes to release.
Joining American Idol propelled him to more fame—signing a record deal with Sony, multiple arena performances, and having his hit single, “Crush” land a coveted no. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. His other record-breaking tracks include “A Little Too Not Over You,” “Something ‘Bout Love” and “Touch My Hand.”
The musical sensation has released six albums, crafted a memoir called “Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song, and the Power of Perseverance” and remained close to the hearts of Filipinos after starring in a TV mini-series in the country.
Now that's David is back, don't miss him perform for you onstage at the Kia Theater, six years after his last concert at the Araneta Coliseum which was also produced by Ovation Productions.
He is also set to do some rounds in TV and radio to promote the show.
