Former “American Idol” contestant David Archuleta still has a few tricks up his sleeve for fans. In a recent interview, the Idol star revealed how down to Earth he really is.
He said, “I was amazed at how many people came to my concerts. I knew people liked me on ‘American Idol’, but I didn’t think they’d care to come see me sing at my own show.”
Archuleta is set to perform at an event at the Rio Tinto Stadium on June 6, 2009. Archuleta also revealed that he’s got two new albums in the works, one, a Christmas album.
He added, “We’re still trying to decide what songs might be best. They’ll probably be my favorite Christmas songs, and we might need to come up with more different approaches. The pop album is different, (because) you need to try to find what suits you best. I definitely want to get more involved with the writing. But I feel like I have writer’s block 24/7, with little openings. We’ve all got our weaknesses, and that’s mine.”
Archuleta also reveals that he’s a guy who enjoys spending time with his fans, in addition to singing at live performances. He said, “It’s the boring things that mean a lot to me. I enjoy taking my sisters to eat. Or sitting watching TV with my family.”
We’re looking forward to both albums being released, tentatively Winter 2009.
