IN PHOTOS: David Archuleta makes fans swoon with his comeback concert in the Philippines

October 30th, 2017

When you hear the name, David Archuleta, you’d think of American Idol — the show, wherein he was runner-up to winner, David Cook in the 7th season. But since his stint on Idol, Archuleta has gone on to make more music and establish himself as one of the country’s most beloved artists.

Archuleta has released 6 albums since his debut on the hit reality show. His 7th album, Postcards in the Sky was released last October 20 — the same day as his concert in the Philippines. And on that day, David Archuleta fans had one epic night of great music, nostalgic feels and more heartfelt performances from the American singer!

Here are some highlights from that night:

A preview of Postcards in the Sky

Considering the fact that his latest album was released on the same day as his PH concert, David Archuleta couldn’t help but give fans a preview of his newest tracks. So, he performed songs like Up All Night, Invincible, Spotlight Down and I’m Ready from Postcards in the Sky.

Here are a few snippets from his performances:

Stellar OPM performances

David Archuleta not only expressed his fondness of OPM but commended Filipino singers as some of the “best singers he’s ever heard.”  In fact, he invited rising star, Tippy Dos Santos to perform alongside him in this killer performance:
