We all remember his songs “Crush” and “A Little Too Not Over You”. American Idol alumni David Archuleta surely stole our hearts back then with his angelic voice as he serenaded us with timeless love songs and also beautiful songs of his own. He started his musical career by joining the 7th Season of American Idol and won second place following David Cook. Since then he released six studio albums, six extended plays, and one compilation album.

This year, he returns to Manila after more than a year since his sold-out show for a benefit concert.
