A Christmas with David Archuleta

A local favorite performer and 2008 American Idol alum, David Archuleta, will return to Cache Valley for a holiday concert, A Christmas with David Archuleta, on Tuesday, November 30 at the Logan High School Auditorium. 

“I love performing in Logan,” David said. “It is a great town that has always made me feel at home. I am looking forward to coming back.”

David says his Christmas concert will be traditional, full of his original Christmas music, like He is Born, Winter in the Air, and Christmas Every Day, along with songs audiences have known and loved for generations. “I love to sing O Holy Night,” David said. “It has a beautiful melody, and it just soars.”

David released his eighth album, Therapy Sessions, in 2020, a pop record that Billboard magazine dubbed as his “most vulnerable music yet.” The tracks narrate David’s lifelong struggle with mental health.

“Whether it was fear, loss, dwelling on the past, or anxiety, there’s a constant battle going on because so much of my mind doesn’t want to budge,” David said. “The songs [on the album] are a sort of back and forth within the inner dialogue I have with myself.” 

After releasing that “deeper” album, David took a lighter turn this summer with the release of his new song Movin’. “I wanted to do something more fun to get people movin’,” David said. 

David also recently authored a children’s book entitled My Little Prayer, illustrated by Sara Ugolotti, based on his song with the same title. It tells the story of a young boy who discovers that what God wants for him is even better than what he wanted for himself. 

“I love kids,” David said. “I have a lot of nieces and nephews, and I thought it’d be great to share something that’s important to me with them, which is my relationship with God and how prayer brings me closer to Him … and understanding that He has a plan for me even when things don’t turn out how I hoped they would. If I get to have kids in the future, I’d love to leave that legacy with them.” 

David’s Logan concert is expected to sell out. Tickets are available at davidarchuleta.com.
