    ‘American Idol’ Star David Archuleta Rings in BritWeek 2010
    Where: Beverly Hills, CA, United States

    April 23, 2010 at 8:32 AM

    Last night we attended the kick-off of BritWeek 2010 in Beverly Hills, an annual celebration of the accomplishments of Brits in the entertainment industry. Of course, the biggest thing on everyone’s mind was the volcanic ash, and there were quite a few ashy jokes being passed around. But eventually folks carried on with the festivities, which included a special singing appearance by David Archuleta, who did a beautiful rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine” as well as an acapella version of “Prayer for the Children,” both of which we managed to record snippets.*

    One of the major sponsors of BritWeek is Virgin Atlantic and thus Sir Richard Branson was trotted out on stage for a Frost/Nixon style interview, done with actor Michael Sheen who plays David Frost in the movie (he is also appearing this season on “30 Rock”)


    BritWeek, co-founded by Nigel Lythgoe (the man behind “American Idol”), also benefits the Save The Children organization which gives disadvantaged children in America quality literacy, nutrition and physical activity programs. Mark Shriver, brother-in-law to the Governator, spoke a bit about the program, what it does and which celebs have pitched in (like Victoria Beckham and Morgan Freeman, who were also in attendance at the event.)


    *We had no idea David Archuleta has an Archie Army on Twitter. So these photos and the video are for you guys! We can’t believe he didn’t win “American Idol” either!


  8. He sounds lovely in the posted vid. This may sound silly, but he is my go to singer on my ipod for when I am stressed – his voice is just so soothing, lol! I am so curious to hear what his album will sound like now that he gets to cowrite more.

    MJ, apparently they tacked a few seconds of Prayer for the Children on at the end of the Imagine video. I wonder if they’ll post both separately at any point.

  9. He looks like a little Brit! haha! Haven’t seen the clips yet. Hope he had fun.

  10. Archie looks older here. Handsome as always and his singing is just beautiful. He’s so brave to sing acapella in this group of audience. Not so many singers would dare sing acapella when their voice is that exposed and naked. Only a select few are naturally gifted and “up there” in talent. Archie is one of them.

  11. David got rave reviews and is dedicated to helping charities. He’s quite the handsome young man and sang so beautifully and heartfelt.
    Can’t wait for his album,book etc.

    How is he ALWAYS so good?!

    David Archuleta performed at the annual BritWeek last night (April 22). BritWeek is a celebration of the accomplishments of those of British heritage in the entertainment industry.

    David sang John Lennon’s “Imagine” and the song “Prayer for the Children.” You can watch clips from both performances in the video below. Let us know which is your performance (we don’t blame you if you say they are both so good you can’t choose!).


  13. David Archuleta’s beautiful voice and shining spirit continues to impress. So much in store for this young man’s future, can’t wait to see what he has on his next project.

  19. i’ll keep it short and sweet (like him haha!). he’s too cute and I love the hair ;)

  20. David Archuleta is just amazing! David had me at Imagine when he sang it on American Idol…I knew at that moment David was someone special and he totally blew me away. I have been lucky to attend some of David’s concert tours and Prayer of Children always brought tears to my eyes…it’s such a touching a song. I love David and just think he is such a talented singer/songwriter…and soon to be author. I can’t wait to read his memoir…and am also anxiously waiting for his next single release. David looks great and is such an inspiration to us all! <3

  21. Likin’ the hair. Liked the vids (thanks for posting, MJ.) Getting really antsy for new music!
