David Archuleta, currently on tour with Disney star, Demi Lovato, blogs good news from the road. His post-Idol debut album, David Archuleta, was recently certified Gold. (500K shipped is the requirement for an album to be certified gold):
Hello all. I’ve come to give you my attempt at a SHORT blog report for the day. The tour with Demi has begun, and the first couple of shows have been great!! Demi is a wickedly talented girl! I’m glad to be on tour with her and am looking forward to an awesome Summer with her. I’m very happy to see the fans again too!! I’ve missed seeing all of you lol. Thanks for coming to the shows you guys! It really means a lot and makes it quite enjoyable. It’s great seeing all the old familiar faces and catching up, and then also getting to meet new faces as well. SO THANK YOU FOR COMING!!
Today I got my RIAA certified gold plaque for my album!!! It’s so cool you guys!! What an accomplishment it is to get one of those. You see other artists’ plaques on the walls of recording studios and stuff, so to have one of my own is seriously so surreal. Thanks for each and everyone of you fans for buying an album to make it happen! Maybe one day we’ll even go platinum! Craziness! As soon as I get a picture I’ll try and upload it somewhere haha. It’s not exactly a literal gold album, but it has my picture and the RIAA certification thingy on it… So it’s official! haha.
There’s more HERE. Congratulations, David!
