David Archuleta was one of performers at Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) telethon on Labor Day weekend, September 5. He performed a song called "Things Are Gonna Get Better" during the fund-raising gig which benefits those afflicted with the neuromuscular disease.

The 2008 runner-up of "American Idol" was introduced by Nygel Lythgoe as "one of the sweetest-sounding singers with the most melodic voice we ever had." The song he sang is a brand new tune taken from his new studio album "The Other Side of Down" which is due October 5 in United States.

Meanwhile, introduced by Jerry himself was stand-up comedian John Pinette who appeared on stage in suit and brought laughters with his jokes. 59-year-old Charo was also presented by Jerry and she took the stage with her guitar and entertained audience with "Roda de Samba".

Opened with narration by National Goodwill Ambassador Abbey Umali, the telethon started at 9 P.M. ET on Sunday night and continues through 5 P.M. ET the next day on September 6. The line-up includes Enrique Iglesias, OneRepublic, Barry Manilow, Ace Young and Richard Belzer of "Law & Order". Full cast of "Glee" reportedly are set to support the telethon as well.

I also had tears coming down my cheeks. After hearing several of the songs that might or might not be on David's album, I sure love this one the best so far. I heard David helped write 10 of the songs on the album, and I wonder if this is one he wrote. Does anyone know?

I think Nigel said "most melodic" voice, not that it matters...most beloved fits too. Loved him then, love him now.. He's amazing!

David is wonderful live. I stayed up to almost 2AM to hear him too. I pre-ordered his deluxe CD/DVD at his official site's shop on the day they started presales. less than a month until it's released! BTW all, David has some promo performances coming up so be sure to check the events list on his official site and other fan sites.
