    I am so glad DN shared this. I love David Archuleta's voice and he is a young man whos seems to really have his head on straight and his priorities in line. I had to laugh when he accidentally repeated words from the first verse and didn't sing those few words of the second. I am sure very few if any noticed this but it was still beautiful and heart felt. Thanks for sharing the your beautiful voice with the soldiers who I'm sure were very happy to hear it.

    This was an amazing performance by David Archuletta. Even though the sound quality wasn't the best, his singing still came through beautifully. Given the location, it was truly the best performance of "Bring Him Home" I have ever heard -- and I've sat in audiences in New York and London to hear some of the best performers. Thank you, David, for sharing your talent!

    Dean Kaelin, Utah singing coach, was not on the show notices but he also on the tour. Dean provided instrumental backup and also had a solo piece in the show. The four guys went over there for free, traveled between military bases on the same transports as the troops (troop carrier planes, helicopters and convoys) and that included getting shot at. In the salute photo above David is wearing what the show members wore for traveling. Many soldiers tweeted photos and said they enjoyed the show. And the four guys, in their various blogs, said they were very impressed by the US troops and the difficulty of jobs they do.

    Too bad the quality was so poor - I love David Archuletta. He needs to do a broadway album or classics or something.

    I love these guys for making this trip and bringing so much entertainment as well as spirituality to these soldiers. Everyone knows David Archuleta great musical talent, however, Jason Hewlett, is quite honestly the funniest comedian I have ever seen and heard. I'm so glad he was able to share his unique talent! His brand of humor is completely clean and hilarious. I would recommend anyone to catch his act if you can.

    Thanks for sharing this article!
