David Archuleta just gave a shoutout to all his Filipino fans on Tuesday, September 21, as he shared a short clip of his home karaoke session with friends where he surprisingly sang a song from an OPM band!
The 30-year-old “American Idol” alum belted out the words to the iconic South Border song “Rainbow” as his friend clapped and cheered him on in the background, and he captioned the video with: “Karaoke with the amigos and saw this song. Shoutout to South Border and to my Filipinos!”

Recently, Archuleta made headlines for reuniting with his “American Idol” rival and good friend David Cook which he revealed through a Tiktok video. Cook likewise posted a selfie of them together, writing in the caption: “This happened today. So fun to catch up, David Archuleta!”
Archuleta also confirmed last June 2021 that he is a member of the LGBTQIA+ community through a lengthy Instagram post to celebrate Pride Month. Archuleta wrote that he had apparently come out as gay in 2014 to his family, but he had still been uncertain about his sexuality until now. He also called for people of faith to be more understanding and compassionate to the members of the community as his faith is also a huge part of his identity.
“I don’t feel comfortable sharing it, but felt I needed to bring more awareness to people in the same situation [as mine] and let you know you’re not alone. You can be part of the LGBTQIA+ community and still believe in God and His gospel plan,” he wrote in his post.
“For people who don’t really understand how feelings outside of just being heterosexual can be possible and okay, I just plead that you become more understanding to people who experience and struggle with things that you may not experience and understand yourself.”
