Video: David Archuleta Performing Song for Haiti Children


David Archuleta


The live rendition of Kurt Bestor's 'Prayer of the Children' has made David Archuleta's fans raising as much as $3,850 for the Haitian relief cause.

David Archuleta was one of the public figures booked to sit behind the desk and pick up phone from the callers during the recent "Hope for Haiti" concert. He didn't make an on-stage live performance at the January 22 gig, but managed to deliver an impromptu performance backstage.

The runner-up of "American Idol" season 7 performed a rendition of Kurt Bestor's "Prayer of the Children". After finishing the song, he urged fans to be involved in the relief effort, saying "Please help these kids. They're going through a lot. And they need your help so just do anything you can and donate for these kids."

The footage of David Archuleta was outed by MTV after many of his die-hard fans begged Jim Cantiello to show David's mini-concert the reporter previously mentioned on Twitter. Jim then asked fans to donate to the Haitian by sending a TwitPic of a cupcake to his Twitter page. "By Tuesday afternoon, a generous group of fans had raised $3,850 in mine and David Archuleta's names," so the reporter said.

    David Archuleta continues to lend his support to these worthy causes. He has such a huge heart and heavenly vocals and that is why I will be his fan forever. David has been asked to join some of the most accomplished Spanish speaking artists in a Spanish language version of WE ARE THE WORLD- SOMOS EL MUNDO. I know it will be successful and bring more donations to the people of Haiti.

    I remember when David sang "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" on AI, he so made me feel his exhaustion and determination. Though I loved the great performances on the telethon, it was David's little snippet of a song, that "took" me to Haiti and made me really feel the suffering of their children. Needless to say,, I bought a couple cupcakes!

    Major incorrect fact. The Virtual Cupcake drive was completely fan driven and created. The only contribution Jim had was telling us about the vid.
