David Archuleta became a star when he was just 16 years old. In 2008, more than 30 million television viewers fell in love with his angelic voice, and their 44 million votes made him runner-up in season seven of American Idol. Soon after, the young Utahan had his first single, “Crush,” debut at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week of its release, and the video has amassed over 100 million views on YouTube. The track sold 166,000 downloads that first week in the US and subsequently more than 1.92 million digital copies. Three months later, Archuleta’s self-titled album (David Archuleta) went gold, selling more than 750,000 copies in the US and more than 900,000 copies worldwide.
