David Archuleta visited the Deseret Book store in Henderson, NV on Wednesday, July 7 to sign copies of his new book "Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul". Rocking casual outfit, red T-shirt and denims, he also took the mic to sing his single "Angels".

Released on June 1, "Chords of Strength" chronicles Archuleta's life and his journey to stardom. "A lot of people ask me questions," he explained. "So I thought this is a really good opportunity just to explain to people about why I live the way I live, and my beliefs and the experiences that I have gone through and how I dealt with American Idol and the vocal paralysis."

In addition to promoting the book, David Archuleta is also preparing to release a new album. The first single "Something 'Bout Love" has been unleashed and a music video reportedly will be shot on July 16 in Los Angeles. The video will be directed by Declan White Bloom and have "young live and good times style concept."

how many young artists today feel confident enough to pick up a microphone and sing "anything" perfect pitch,...a c a p e l l a!!!??David is a human juke box!who else does that in the music world today...without 20 other people on the stage,instruments and dancing and fire and rain and auto tune and all the other on stage hoop-de dah to mask the fact they really can't sing. David, he is the real deal!

Thanks JustJared for the continuing coverage of David's appearances! I was there at the book signing yesterday. David remains the humble, caring person that he was before all this national attention. His Angels acapella was so amazing, singing outdoors on a beautiful sunny day! We all were wishing we could have had a full-fledged concert right there! I have HD video of Angels on my youtube channel: azac460
