David Archuleta updated fans on his official web site’s blog on Monday (February 23) while in Virginia, ahead of his concert on Tuesday at Sandler PAC in Virginia Beach. The ‘American Idol’ season seven runner-up writes:
So the last week has basically been me and the new band getting ready for tour. They’re all really fun to work with and really talented. It’s fun just hanging out with them and we have a good time rehearsing, even though it’s a lot of work. When we rehearse, it’s basically just running through all the songs all day long lol. We try to tweak them, and see what we can add to it to make it more fun. It’ll be fun to just get out there and sing, and I think you guys will have fun listening to the new songs from the album! I’m excited to perform them. Some of the songs are really high though, and I have no idea how I hit them… But I manage to lol. When I recorded some of the songs, like Running, Barriers, Crush, A Little Too Not Over You, I was thinking… “How the heck I was going to be able to sing them?!?” But I always managed to somehow haha. And the more you push yourself, (But not in a way you hurt your voice. It’s more like you go for things you were afraid of doing and sing with confidence! haha) you become more comfortable.
