David Archuleta On His ALMA Performance

David Archuleta, who got the Year In Music ALMA Award, has opened up about the honor and performing at the award show.

The “American Idol” alum revealed that it was his first performance on an awards ceremony and his first performance on TV in Spanish so he felt pretty nervous.

He sang “Contigo en la Distancia.” He was happy to perform for the Latin people because his mom got Hispanic roots. And he thanked ALMA Awards for giving him the chance to perform and the award that he received.

  • David Archuleta’s Stunning ALMA Awards Performance
    Sunday September 20, 2009

    Even if you are not typically a fan of Latin music, this is a performance to see. This year’s ALMA (American Latino Media Arts) Awards were televised last Friday and featured a stunning performance from former American Idol runner-up David Archuleta. He won the award for Male Music Rising Star. When David Archuleta started to sing it quickly became obvious why he was deserving of such an accolade. He performed the song “Contigo en la Distancia.” The song is most closely associated with Mexican Latin pop star Luis Miguel. Now 18, David Archuleta sings with impressive maturity in voice and demeanor. This is one of the best performances of his career to this point. Look for a Spanish language track on David Archuleta’s upcoming Christmas collection Christmas From the Heart.

    This was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. The way he performed it and sang it. It is unbelievable that this was his first awards show to perform on and in spanish at that. He has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. I am watching it on youtube over and over. Can’t get enough of it. Can’t wait to get his Christmas album now on pre-order from Amazon and his next pop album or whatever he puts out. I just love listening to him no matter what he sings and he is such a great person and nice young man.
