David Archuelta in Idaho Falls. Absolutely incredible! He has such an amazing voice and he looks so effortless when he sings. I couldn't believe how he hit every note, without any trouble. That's the good thing about American Idols, they can actually sing live.
I was lucky enough to get to be in the pit, which was raised by the way. I was literally like one foot maybe two feet away from him. I came so close to touching his hand but a lady with a lot of hair was right in front of me and blocked my hand. I was slightly sad but oh well. It was just fun to be part of the crowd that was able to put my hand up there when he was near. I've always wanted to be able to do that haha.
He started the concert off with one of my favorite songs: Touch My Hand. This is when the grabbing hands happened. Appropriate? Yes. Throughout the night, he did most of his album and a few other songs, for example Love Song and I'm Yours. I was so excited when he sang I'm Yours, I love that song and he totally dominated it! Of course! And he played the piano on Love Song which made it even better. He was so cute the whole night. He had so much energy, never missed a note, got the crowd involved, and played the piano beautifully. I never knew he could play as well as he did. I didn't hear him miss a note and I was right by the piano. :) I was just so impressed with his performances. And his speaking voice has definitely matured, I was surprised to hear him talk, he sounds nothing like the boy on American Idol. I was also surprised at how small he was! He is so little! He was so adorable, this little guy, amazing voice, dancing and jumping the whole time. I don't know how he did it. I also have to point out that he was wearing black leather Converse, yep I was close enough to see that they were leather! I also was close enough to see the sweat dripping down his face ha.
I was so sad when he left the stage but was psyched again when he came back for his encore. He did it without a band. He accompanied himself on the piano for two songs. He sang A Thousand Miles, and totally nailed the piano, which I've heard slaughtered, it's pretty tough. His very last song of the whole show was Angels from his album and oh my gosh, I couldn't stop smiling. He was, of course, incredible.
I had seen David on the American Idol tour last summer and he was just as happy and excited to be there but I loved being close enough at this concert to see all the excitement on his face and be able to take on an entire show by himself. I'm incredibly sad that it's over but am so happy that I was able to experience the show so close to him and I hope he does another tour in the near future, I will most definitely be there! I love you David!!
It couldn't get any better than him singin while playin the piano. So cute!
