My American Idol "crush"

Most of you know that I am a huge Idol fan--Canadian and American. In fact, I not only voted for hours for past Canadian Idol Eva Avila, I've become friends with her, had lunch with her and she's reading Whale Song. But now, I have to confess I have a huge "crush" on a younger man from American Idol.

In the past 2 shows where the men have performed, I have found myself drawn to this young cutie. Okay, not in a romantic way because that would make me a "cougar", but more in a somewhat motherly--God, you're so damed cute and have the sweetest smile and the purest voice that sends shivers up my spine--way.

This "crush" is none other than David Archuleta, an extremely talented and humble 17-year old from Murray, Utah. This boy/man has a voice that has brought me to tears, and I, for one, would pay to see him perform and make me cry more.

I predict great things for you, David. I believe you could win Idol, and at the very least, you'll have recording studios knocking on your door and fighting over you. Heck, if a happily married woman in her 40's and mother of a 17-year-old daughter can fall in love with your voice in just a few short weeks, you'd better be prepared for all the US and Canada to love you too.

My advice to you: Keep on believing! Dreams DO come true if you work towards them. So dare to dream, dream BIG and keep singing those songs that dig at our hearts and souls. You are already a shining star, David Archuleta. Keep shining!

For anyone who hasn't experienced this talented young man's voice, check out American Idol!
