RootsTech 2015

Nov 19, 2014

David Archuleta is teaming up with popular comedy sketch group Studio C from BYUtv to perform at RootsTech 2015. RootsTech is the largest family history conference in the world and will be happening on February 12–14, 2015.

Both talents will be launching original pieces at the RootsTech Closing Event at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 14. David will perform 4 songs, including a new song written by himself that is sung in Spanish and Portuguese. The accompanying music video was filmed in Costa Rica in 2014 and will also have its debut appearance. What’s more, the event will feature a never-before-seen sketch by Studio C. For more information, go to RootsTech.org.

According to David, his family’s heritage and history helped craft his musical style, and being part of RootsTech gives him a chance to celebrate his family and the influence they have had on his music. “Music was always a part of my life growing up. My mother was also big on dancing and would teach my older sister and me to dance to traditional music,” he recalls.  “I can’t think about celebrating my family without thinking about celebrating music.”

The comedy sketch group Studio C from BYUtv is a household name for people of all ages across the nation. Since its launch in October 2012, its loyal fan base has helped grow the show’s online presence to more than 70 million YouTube views to date.

David Archuleta and Studio C will perform for thousands of attendees at the RootsTech Closing Event on the final day of RootsTech 2015, February 14. To reserve your ticket to see them, visit rootstech.org.

Song in “Redeemer”

Song in “Redeemer”

Nov 5, 2014

David Archuleta took part in the creation of the Nashville Tribute Band’s new album, Redeemer. He both co-wrote and recorded the track “When the Son of Man (Comes Again).”

In David’s words

I participated in a project of some dear (and “Deere”) friends of mine, paying tribute to the most important person in my life, our Savior. It was a privilege to cowrite and record the 13th track on the album. Each song tries to put us in the shoes of the personal testimonies those of old had of of the Savior.

Read more about the creation of the album in the Deseret Times article, “Big names contribute to Nashville Tribute Band’s new ‘Redeemer’ album.”

David’s track and the rest of Redeemer can be previewed and purchased on iTunes.
