We first swooned over David on American Idol, and couldn't get enough of his solo records and Christmas albums. Although David will spend the next two years on a mission with his church, we're glad he left us with his new song "Wait," which is exactly what we will gladly do for more music from Archie. Today, David Archuleta turns 21! Happy Birthday, David!

Fun Facts about David:
– Before American Idol, David recorded a demo called Fear vs. Faith, which you can check out on iTunes.
– David's self-titled debut album debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts.
– He was first inspired to sing when he watched a Les Miserables video."That musical is what started all of this," he says.
