The 20-year-old American pop singer-songwriter was propelled into the limelight during the seventh season of the popular TV talent show in 2008, where he emerged runner-up.
In the same year, Archuleta released his self-titled debut. The first single “Crush” was so well received that it hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week it was released and has since sold more than two million downloads. Archuleta’s sophomore record The Other Side of Down was released last October, showcasing a variety of tracks from upbeat tunes like “Elevator” to slow-tempo melodies like “My Kind of Perfect”.
Archuleta was in Singapore for a promotional visit last November where he spoke to the media at The Ritz Carlton, Millenia hotel. Clad in a grey tee, black jeans and striped cardigan, the baby-faced crooner flashed his mega-watt smile at a roomful of journalists.
