Fans everywhere are anticipating the new release from vocal pop sensation David Archuleta. The new album, BEGIN., is packed with some of modern music's most moving songs. David's powerful vocals transform hit tunes including Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel, Angel by Sarah McLachlan, and True Colors by Cyndi Lauper. These songs, together with a selection of upbeat melodies such as Pride (In the Name of Love) by U2 and a completely original, never-before-heard song written by David, make this album truly unique.

Just purchased this album and I already love it. It is so refreshing to hear David's vocal ability again instead of all of the fluff that is so common in todays albums. They encompass everything but the artist's voice. When David was on American Idol, what I fell in love with was his voice. His ability to take a song and make it his own and use his vocals to just reach in and grab your heart and take it on an emotional journey. This album brings me back to those days. Yet there is a certain maturity to his voice as well. David is so talented and I am grateful to be able to experience his music with him.

I ordered 3 of the BEGIN CD as soon as it was available for pre-order. David Archuleta's vocals on these carefully selected songs are the reason he has such loyal fans. He NEVER disappoints us. Each song is a testament to how David views the power of music. I am in awe of his talent. My favorites are "Don't Give Up", "Angel", and the original "Broken". David wanted to leave music for his fans while he was away on his 2 year mission, but he did more than that. He left us all a piece of his heart and soul in "BEGIN". #DA2014

I only ran into David a few weeks ago when I was watching some videos of Selena Quintanilla Perez on you*tube and he sang one of her most famous songs as a tribute to her at the TMA two years ago. I'm telling you, I've heard many people sing that particular song several times since her passing in 1995 but NOBODY has gotten as close to the way she sung it, as David did. It was like hearing her but only in a masculine voice; same emotion, intensity and passion. Since that moment, I was hooked and then later I found out that he only has use of one vocal cord, the other is paralyzed. How amazing that a young man that only has use of one vocal cord can sing so powerful and with such passion. I'm definitely buying "BEGIN", Forevermore, and Christmas From The Heart. He has a God-given gift. I hope these next two years go quick and then we'll see what God has planned for him and us.

P.s. I will be commenting again once I get the CD's but I'm positive it will not be anything negative.

Can't say enough good things about this album. Bought it the moment it was available and have listened to it several times already. David is an inspiring singer and this is a great collection of songs.

I love the variety of the covers on this album- everything from Christina Aguilera to U2! I also LOVE his original track, Broken- can't get it out of my head.

Beautifully done. David has such an amazing musicality and his voice is beyond compare. Classic songs treated with respect. Plus the original song Broken is amazing. You can't go wrong with this album.

I like David Archuleta's music. "Begin" at first seemed so heavily weighted with ballads, that I tended to nod out. But as I spin it more, David's magic weaves its spell. I'm glad to have his recording of Sarah McLachlan's "Angel." I have her version from the 1998 soundtrack City Of Angels: Music From The Motion Picture. I love David's version because it frees me a bit from seeing photos of weepy dogs in the infomercial urging pet adoption. Likewise, Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" had a great version by Clay Aiken, another talent show alumni. While David does a decent journeyman's job on this lovely song, it doesn't really make a new statement with a similar string arrangement as the original. His original tune "Broken" is a lovely track with David's voice high & clear, "Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel? It doesn't matter until we see broken lives heal." If you only download a track or two from this set, be sure you get that one! Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" is quite different with David's treatment bringing out faithful certainty. His version of U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love)" has great energy; I would have tracked it closer to the opening of the set to establish some pep. The set concludes with the lovely "Be Still, My Soul" that so sweetly glows with love and faithful certainty. Enjoy!

This CD is full of amazing covers and one new song by an amazing vocalist. David Archuleta's skills allow him to deliver old songs in a fresh way that is consistently better than the original versions. His new song, "Broken" is my favorite. I highly recommend this CD to music lovers.
