Jasmine Curtis-Smith To Have A Foreign Leading Man?
TV5 hasn’t included in their “TV Shows To Look Out For” this certain Drama series that will star Jasmine Curtis-Smith and one foreign celebrity. We promised our source that we wouldn’t drop names as to who this celebrity is, but if it pushes through, we’re certain a lot would envy Jasmine. One clue we can give; however, is that this foreign celebrity is popular for his singing, and has already visited the Philippines.
It seems TV5 is building up Jasmine who will also star in the remake of Leya, which was originally starred in by Nadine Samonte and Oyo Sotto in GMA.
Wait, perhaps Leya is the same TV series Jasmine and this foreign celebrity will be starring in?

David chooses the misionary life over singing career.
It seems that TV5′s plan to cast David Archuleta to be Jasmine Curtis-Smith’s love interest in a big TV series won’t push through anymore. David has temporarily turned his back on the entertainment industry to become a Mormon missionary.
As we await further tweets, the feelings are mixed… excited that D is coming back here and at the same time worried that his possible stay here could make it all the more difficult for fans to let go and overcome the sadness about his leaving for a mission, shortly thereafter.
Whatever future developments, David’s fans are sure to support his endeavors and be there for him.

David Archuleta stopped by Forbes Magazine in New York City to talk about his career and love for Christmas music, and to perform a couple holiday songs for the Forbes staff.

The former American Idol star dropped by to play a handful of Christmas songs and talk about the business of holiday music. Archuleta knows plenty about both–he released a holiday album of his own, Christmas From The Heart, in 2009; this year, he’s featured on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s Glad Christmas Tidings.
“I feel like there’s something special about Christmas music,” he said. “You’re able to put your heart into it a different way than with other, just pop, stuff.”

One of the first Christmas songs David Archuleta ever sang was “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” but he admits he has always hated that song.
The idea that his mother would ever kiss someone else besides him offended his sensibility. “I was super-protective of my mom,” Archuleta said. “Even when I was three, no one could touch my mommy. I would sing that song in a jealous way.”
Although he has toured the world since he finished second in 2008’s seventh season of “American Idol,” in an interview Archuleta still displayed the jitters he says he feels when he’s the center of attention. He sang bits of songs to himself under his breath, and when asked, he admitted his friends make fun of that trait. “I don’t even notice it,” he says. “When I’m not thinking about being watched, or being threatened, I do it.”
The lack of self-confidence comes from his perception that he’s not a “Vegas performer,” with decades of experience under his belt. “I’m still learning how to do it,” he says. “I’m not the most professionally skilled performer out there, and I will say my abilities are limited. What I do know, I love to sing, and I always want to do my best.”
On this tour, Archuleta has continued writing songs for his next album, experimenting with what he described as a more natural approach than on his two pop-influenced Jive albums. He’s concentrating on writing uplifting music. Not religious songs exactly, but songs with a message.
When he was younger, vocal coach Dean Kaelin would take him to assisted-living homes to perform. Archuleta remembered standing at the side of a bed that held a terminally ill patient, singing “A Piece of Sky,” from the Barbra Streisand film “Yentl.”
“That music meant a lot to her,” Archuleta says. “She was coming alive during the song. That’s when I realized how important music could be.”
The year 2012 will likely be another defining year for a young performer who is still finding the musician inside himself. “The goal this year is to take the time I need to know what I want to become,” he says.
As he crooned to an elderly woman so many years ago:
Tell me where
Where is it written
What is it I meant to be?
