    my favourite used to be Adam; adored him from the beginning, but have seriously gone off him, now I know he condoned the wearing of animal furs. Always thought he was a really decent person, but apparantly not. Very disappointed in him.

    My all-time favorite is David Archuleta – gorgeous voice and a humble, honest and caring person. David has 6 albums now and is guest soloist on 6 tracks of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s Glad Christmas Tidings CD & DVD. David’s most recent two albums were released while he’s been serving a 2-yr church mission (spring 2012-2014 – he should be home around April).

    David Archuleta hands down! On a mission for two years yet still on the list.

  4. My favorites were Carrie Underwood, Lee DeWyze, and Kris Allen ❤
