On the Limelight Series: David Archuleta

David Archuleta American Idol
David James Archuleta (born December 28, 1990 in Miami, Florida) is an American singer and "Top 16" contestant, and amongst the top eight male vocalists, on American Idol's seventh season as of the moment.

They say David Archuleta has the biggest chance in bringing home the 'American Idol' title.

At the age of 12, Archuleta won the Junior Singers competition on Star Search.

Archuleta started singing when he was six because he was inspired by a Les Misérables 10th-anniversary video he was watching, "That musical is what started all of this." He started performing for others at the age of ten, when he participated in the Utah Talent Competition with the song "I Will Always Love You", by Dolly Parton, receiving a standing ovation, and winning the kid division. This later led to his competing in the Star Search reality show as well as appearing on The Jenny Jones Show and CBS' The Early Show as well as meeting the finalists from American Idol 1. He once suffered partial vocal paralysis but refrained from risky surgery and feels he has fully recovered.

Archuleta lives in Murray, Utah and is a student at Murray High School. If his bid to become the next American Idol fails he plans to continue school and keep singing. The only regular job he has had was over the summer of 2007 as a sound "techie" at a park amphitheater

His parents are also on hand, likely because he's a minor.Archuleta is considered to be one of the frontrunners for his series of exceptional performances. After his rousing rendition of "Imagine", all three judges praised his abilities with Paula Abdul citing as one of the most "moving performances [she had] ever heard." Entertainment Weekly critic Michael Slezak stated that Archuleta "[has] shown more star quality and stage presence in two weeks of performances than all the other male constestants combined."
