AN EVENING WITH DAVID ARCHULETA

First United Methodist Church Richardson
General Admission Seating

Turtle Creek Chorale is thrilled to welcome world-renowned artist David Archuleta for a very special, one-night-only holiday engagement.

David, who became a worldwide sensation during his appearance on “American Idol,” has gone on to a successful recording career and thrills audiences with his silky voice, charming personality, and inspirational music.

The evening will feature David singing many of his solo offerings, as well as a few selections with the men of the Turtle Creek Chorale. The TCC will also share some holiday favorites of their own.

David is a voice for equality, dignity, and acceptance of all people. His recent statements on sexuality have earned him great respect and, in conjunction with his Mormon faith, he continues to change hearts and minds everywhere.

BIO FOR DAVID ARCHULETA

At just 16 yrs old, David Archuleta became a star. In 2008 more than 30 million television viewers fell in love with his angelic voice, making him runner-up in Season 7 of “American Idol.” His first single “Crush,” debuted at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, eventually going double platinum after selling more than 2 million digital copies, worldwide.

After a few more albums, appearing as a guest star on The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s holiday album, and starring in a mini-series in the Philippines, Archuleta (a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) put his singing career on hiatus so he could serve a two-year stint as a missionary outside of Santiago, Chile.

Since his return to music in 2014, David successfully began releasing music under his own indie label, Archie Music. Regularly selling out two domestic tours a year and with a total of nine studio albums under his belt, Archuleta now resides in Nashville where, in his downtime, he’s able to collaborate with other songwriters and musicians. His most recent album ‘Therapy Sessions,’ which Billboard magazine dubbed as his “most vulnerable music yet,” narrates Archuleta’s lifelong struggle with mental health.

“Whether it was fear, loss, dwelling on the past, or anxiety. There’s a constant battle going on because so much of my mind doesn’t want to budge. The songs are a sort of a back and forth within the inner dialogue I have with myself,” says David.

The struggles of our Black, Indigenous, and brothers and sisters of color have continued to plague our country, even in these “modern times.” TCC understands our responsibility to sing on the issues of racial equity and we plan on doing so with pride, beauty, and an eye towards progress. This important and moving performance will showcase text and songs that speak specifically towards our country’s history with race.

Originally scheduled for the 100-year commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre – a once-forgotten historical event, TCC will workshop a new work, “Dreamland: Tulsa 1921” in 2021 with the world premiere in the spring of 2022. TCC commissioned this major new piece of choral theater by librettist Sandra Seaton and composer Marques Garrett which tells the story of a dark period in 1921, in the heart of Tulsa, when an unfortunate event in an elevator set up the largest race massacre in the history of the United States. Flanked by singers, actors, and an orchestra, this massive new work will transform you with its frank portrayal of these events, which have been out of the public psyche for too long.
