THR article

 

WHEN STARS ALIGNED

The good news from THR couldn’t come at a better time. Archies have chosen today to hold its regular trending party with the phrase “Always In Our Hearts David Archuleta”.

Just a random day chosen really 🙂 but with the news of David making chart history this week, as Glad Christmas Tidings, a Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra release that features the vocals of the American Idol alum, re-enters the Classical Catalog Albums chart in the top spot the trending party has been given a celebratory wallop.

You’d think someone from THR is an Archie – har-har! Be that as it may, congratulations David & MOTAB!

This development becomes more significant because David has been away for 16 months. I think TeamArchie deserves a pat in the back for keeping his name out there. Of course the fans have contributed as well and this is not lost on his Team as they tweeted —

And why not? No one deserves the devotion the Archies have better than the magnificent talent and beautiful soul that TheArchuletor is!

PERFECT TIMING

That the trending coincided with the release of THR’s article is serendipitous. As David would sing-say – “Even the skies will tell you…” Christmas and Billboard charts – two of David’s favorite things. I think he will be GLAD how this turned out.
