Music producer, Dapo recently invited David Archuleta and other friends to his studio and created his first Holiday album titled, “Dapo & Friends Christmas”.

For this special album, made of 9 Christmas classics and one original, all produced and arranged by Dapo, David recorded “(Little) Drummer Boy”.

“I wanted to create a project where I could bring together some of my incredibly talented friends and share their gift of music with the world. This is a collection of some of my favorite writers and artists singing some of my favorite Christmas songs! I hope you enjoy listening to this collection of music as much as we enjoyed recording it. Next year I am hoping to do this again so I can include some people that due to scheduling and what not we weren’t able to this time around. I wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season, filled with peace and love. Enjoy!” – Dapo
