David Sings NA @ US Embassy Santiago

Happy 4th of July America!

4ofJuly flag


Apart from Christmas time, it is during patriotic holidays and events when we probably miss David the most. Well, it is that time again in the US yet we have a little less than 9 months for TheVoice to soar high again along the US flag and its beautiful patriotic melodies.

SURPRISE! SURPRISE!

Well, it would appear that David did a ninja on us once again cos apparently, he sang the National Anthem for the US Embassy of Santiago Chile on 02 July 2013! This was in celebration of Independence Day :) See the pix below from the Facebook accounts of Embajadora de Honduras en Chile and US Embassy, Santiago Chile

I met #Elder David #Archuleta! http://t.co/Sp0LAXN7v6




Am not sure if a video of his actual singing will ever be posted or if the performance was captured at all. I sure hope so!

Meanwhile SANTIAGOPRESS posted a video of their July 4th Party. David is shown at 0:50 mark :)
