David Archuleta frightens me. Don’t believe that aww shucks exterior for a minute. He is as fierce as it gets. I can barely look at the picture below … the look in those eyes? … lasers are less lethal.
And when he yells out “Go!” and orders the crowd to sing along to Elevator?
You do not DARE disobey. Lately, he’s even been scaring the guys into belting it out!
Exhibit A: David’s not only putting together an ace band but introducing them with style.
He’s the boss. No doubt about it.
Exhibit B: TOSOD and Falling Stars at the Majestic Theater in Dallas Friday night.
Saw this comment on hazeleyd71’s YouTube:
“What a great night it was. I felt like we were seeing the NEW David – he is ready to go forth and conquer!”
Here’s the thing. I don’t think it’s new at all. I think he’s always known he could slay any dragon any time he wanted to. Boy has plans. He knows exactly what he wants and is willing to kick up one foot in front of the other in order to get it. Watch. Out. World.
Exhibit C: Yesterday’s a cappella Heaven. He fearlessly tries to noodle it out on the keyboard, then just goes for it and belts it out sans accompaniment.
Ya, sure, disarm us with that dorky exterior then just when we feel all cocky and like we know what to expect, BAM!, knock us flat and rifle through our pockets*. And we fall for it every time. Dang, he’s good.
*okay, no rifling… but he could, couldn’t he?
