He’s one of the few artists I call my “idol” (and well, it’s in the name of the competition he came from).
One of the artists that has always had a huge impact on me, like seriously massive I can’t even begin to explain.
This guy’s a genius. His passion for what he does is too incandescent it becomes infectious and contagious.
Most importantly, his voice is his most powerful tool. It’s moving, it’s uplifting. A real soul supreme.
And despite his long hiatus in the music industry, he remains to be that great artist I will always look up to, and wish to take after. And I do remain a rabid, Archie-hungry fan.
He turns 25 today.
Praying that he gets to have more fruitful and victorious years in the industry doing just what he loves to do; producing magnificent music, communicating God, and inspiring countless people with his passion and brilliance.
Happy birthday Archie!
