Fireworks lit up the sky and couples were serenaded with love songs at Close Up’s Pyropalooza event held at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall on February 11. But it was American Idol Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta who made the show extra special with his guest performance. He entertained the crowd by singing Ogie Alcasid's "Nandito Ako," the title song for the miniseries he’ll be starring in; Southborder's "Wherever You Are"; and an original song called "Something 'Bout Love." Before the show, Female Network had a one-on-one interview with David, in which he shared the memorable moments of his stay in the Philippines, what he looked for in a girl, and what acting made him realize about himself.
Read on for quotes and insights we gained from the interview.
