A couple of highlights: Richard got stuck in an elevator with David’s family. Plus, David really likes to dance! Richard chatted with David’s dad and co-manager, Jeff Archuleta. Here’s what’s coming up for David in the near future:
As David met with a TV crew, I chatted with his father (and manager), Jeff, who told me a bit about what’s ahead for David: David’s second single is out, and his labels are planning for the European and Japanese releases of his album; in the near future will be an announcement about David’s first solo national tour Ãƒ ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’ apparently about six weeks, in 1,000- to 2,000-seat venues, aiming for some areas the Idols Live tour bypassed. Then I followed David and Jeff up to the suite to await showtime, 11 p.m.
And, last night, David performed the National Anthem at a pre-inaugual Latin ball in Washington DC headlined by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Also in attendance were Wilmer Valderrama from That 70’s Show, comedian George Lopez and actress Rosie Perez.
