Last May 16, 2009, 8 pm, at SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, over 50,000 people attended the much awaited concert of David Cook and David Archuleta. They wowed the people with their great songs and outstanding performance. Archie was the first to step on the stage but before that, the people was amazed to the fireworks display. Then Archie took over. The fans was unstoppable, they screamed as loud as they can especially when Archie sang "Touch my hand", A little too not over you and Crush. He melted the heart of the fans especially the girls when he played the piano and sang "A thousand mile". He's very talented in playing the piano. The crowd roared when Archie said "Maraming salamat, mahal ko kayo" straight. Then Archie left the stage, Cook turns now but before that, again there's a fireworks display, so beautiful. Again, the crowd started to scream when Cook was on the centerstage singing the song "World I know". Cook hit the stage with a bang! This rocker handsome man sang his relesed song "Avalanche", "Light on" and new single "Come back to me". He also sang "Always be my baby" eventhough it's not included to the list of his song to perform. Because he discovered that his version of this song became big here in the Philippines. He has lot of sense of humor when he's on stage especially when he said "Salamat" and forgot the "po" he had a hard time saying that and people just laughed. When he sang his last song "Dead End" all became emotional including him because he dedicated this to his brother who died last May 2, 2009. Because that was the end song Cook called Archie to the stage and they sang together. The people again screamed their heart out and when the song was done the crowd was shouting "We want more" but it's already end of the show. Because of the successful concert I hope that it is possible to have a repeat. (fingers crossed again) Thank you David Cook and David Archuleta for making us happy.
Note: I saw the video of Archuleta saying a quick thanks to his Filipino fans. Try to check his Twitter account for the link.
