David Archuleta – Grove Christmas Tree Lighting – Los Angeles

David Archuleta performed at the Grove Tree Lighting ceremony in Los Angeles last night.

Some twitter reports place the crowd at 20K, and the Governor was also there, reportedly.

Archie teamed up with Glee’s Charice to duet on “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. He also performed “Melodies of Christmas”, and “The First Noel”.

  1. Very nice videos! David seemed a bit tired but he’s been going non-stop for over a week…but he still gives 110%. Hope he gets some rest and can enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with his family.

  2. ohh awesome you got to go!

    ^actually I think he’s a bit sick. lol probably from all that non-stopping he’s been doing since singapore.

  3. I personally don’t know how he managed that last night. 24 hrs. before he was singing outside in very cold weather and signing autographs til 11:00 or so at night in Indiana. Hopefully he slept on the plane. Not to mention that he had just flown in from Manila where he would have 20 interviews a day and perform. He has always said that talking is harder on his voice than singing. How many 19 year olds have the work ethic of David. He inspires me!

  4. Lol at Charice’s dorky glasses during soundcheck. But she took them off later. She’s so tiny and cute, just right for David’s size. ha.

  5. David wrote ‘Melodies of Christmas’. The more I listen to it, the more it warms my heart. He includes all things he remembers about Christmas; the greatest story ever told, peace, mankind, family, Elvis, Josh, Celine and bits of all Christmas songs!

  6. My gosh, David is still going! He just got back from Asia, sick as can be – performed last nite in Indiana and now he’s back in LA?? This young guy has a work ethic to be admired! Kudos to him!

  7. I was there last night amongst the huge crowd. And yes Arnold and Maria were there, I was standing right next to the vip area. There was David chanting before the event started.

    David sounded amazing, I love Melodies of Christmas, First Noel was beautiful and being there live I didn’t hear any voice cracks or anything of the sort. I’ve also read that Charice had some flat notes, didn’t catch those either. Their duet was awesome. Hope they have a chance to sing it again before Christmas.

    David has been on a whirlwind these last couple of weeks, I hope he gets some rest before December hits.

  8. Thanks djfan Nice to have a report from the front lines!! Enjoyed David’s performances and also the duet with Charice. They tried a Ustream which didn’t work and it was nice to get the You tubes but nothing beats being there.

    Next scheduled performance Dec 3, so hope David has this week to rest before rehearsals start.

  9. Too bad David couldn’t do something from his new CD. 20K people are a lot of people to not do something from the new album for.

    Charice’s glasses–awful. maybe she lost her real glasses and had to wear her crappy old glasses she got before she met people who could advise her not to wear glasses in the same shape as your face.

  10. David and Charice did great on their duet. It is nice to see David performing with someone who is his own age. Maybe Charice’s best friend/mentor Oprah will have them on her show to sing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. That would be nice. David always will sing when he is sick as he never wants to disappoint his fans.

  11. I think Charice wears those glasses as her character on Glee and my hunch is that she sometimes wears them to promote her character vs helping her see. (this is strictly a guess because she never wore them before her character on glee wore them)

  12. It’s a blessing these terrific fans take such great videos so I am able to see and hear them! Thanks very much for sharing!
    Ever since David and Charice sang HYAMLC on his CFTH CD, I have wanted so badly to hear them do it live. I am a HAPPY girl! :-)

  13. What a GREAT show at the L.A. Grove last night! Even though we had to stand for hours to get a good spot, it was well worth the wait! Loved hearing David sing Melodies of Christmas…fantastic song…and his duet with Charice was amazing too. They both sing and harmonize really well together! Just really happy that David could sing for so many people in L.A. again…great promo!

  14. I would also still love to see David on Glee with Charice. That show would be good for David.
