Product Description

2012 release from the pop sensation and former American Idol contestant. 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 'In the Name of Love' by U2 and a completely original, never-before-heard song written by David, make this album truly unique.

David Archuleta's signature voice sounds more amazing than ever on this album. Love the songs he chose to cover (especially Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know," Cyndi Lauper's "True Colours" and U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love)" but my absolute favourite track on the album is David's original song "Broken," it's hauntingly beautiful. Highly recommend this CD!

David Archuleta covers great songs with soulful vocals, and an original called Broken which is about the Invisible Children. Amazing songs, like Sara M.'s ANGEL! One of my favorites is "Beautiful"! And True Colors sung with David Archuleta's pure vocals! The music and arrangements are top knotch! Every song is heartfelt!

Finally - the David we know and love. Aug. 14 2012
By ssteedster - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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.

Music At It's Best Aug. 23 2012

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

Amazing!!!!!!!! Aug. 28 2012
By Martha Cruz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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.

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.

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.
