David Archuleta made his first visit to the Hallmark Channel talk show Home & Family which aired on Monday (Nov 3). The American Idol season 7 alum chatted with hosts Cameron Mathison and Debbie Matenopoulos and also performed his Christmas single “Christmas Every Day.” The cut is from his new holiday album, Winter in the Air.
Before his acoustic performance, David shared how his aim for the album was to include a little bit of this and a little bit of that. “I wanted some good classic songs like Holly Jolly Christmas and White Christmas…but I wrote a few songs as well because I wanted to give my own original spin on things.” David added, “And then I wanted a spiritual one, and I wanted a winter wonderland-describing one as well. There’s a little bit of everything!”
The singer also chatted about his recent trip to the Philippines where he participated in a benefit concert to help children with physical disabilities like cataracs, club foot and cleft palate afford the surgeries they need. “It was an amazing experience,” he said.
