ex·po·nent
noun /ikˈspōnənt/  /ˈekspōnənt/ 
exponents, plural

A person who believes in and promotes the truth or benefits of an idea or theory
– an early exponent of the teachings of Thomas Aquinas

A person who has and demonstrates a particular skill, esp. to a high standard
– he’s the world’s leading exponent of country rock guitar

A quantity representing the power to which a given number or expression is to be raised, usually expressed as a raised symbol beside the number or expression (e.g., 3 in 23 = 2 × 2 × 2)

A linguistic unit that realizes another, more abstract unit

One who expounds, represents or advocates; The power to which a number, symbol or expression is to be raised or multiplied by itself

~ Merriam-Webster – The Free Dictionary

It is interesting that the different definitions of “exponent” remind me of the things I find fascinating about David Archuleta — belief, truth, idea, power, representation, advocacy, raised symbol, standards, realization, abstraction…

And as he embarks on another media blitz to promote his Christmas tour, the GCT album & its PBS airings plus Wait’s music video, he literally multiplies himself and reaches out to his market on various media. As mentioned in a couple of threads ago, David will be onstage, on TV/cable, on the airwaves, on print, on billboards, posters, email blasts, online and on meet and greets.

Such multimedia blitzkrieg is shaping up to be a yearly tradition. No complaints from me 🙂 I say: go forth and multiply the David brand! The world can sure use more joy, more sharing, more sense from a person with substance. The Season’s {multimedia} exponent, indeed.

Below are the tour/GCT-related videos. I will add to this thread as they come. Enjoy!
