This has yet to be confirmed on the show or on the official idol web site. According to the google’s cached page of TV.com’s page of David Archuleta, David is “Hispanic Filipino” but as of this posting, it has been changed to “Hispanic American“. We’ve also read that a local television station here in the Philippines reported that he is Filipino but didn’t elaborate on the report’s source. The reason that we want to know is because if he’s really Filipino then we should feature his performances here on Mukamo just like what we do with Ramiele Malubay (who is definitely Filipino). Anyway, here’s David Archuleta’s rendition of John Lennon’s Imagine. But Filipino or not, David is a serious contender for the title of American Idol 7.
