One of the first Christmas songs David Archuleta sang was “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” a song he admits he has always hated.
The idea that his mother would ever kiss someone else besides him offended the preschooler’s sensibility. “I was super-protective of my mom,” Archuleta said. “Even when I was 3, no one could touch my mommy. I would sing that song in a jealous way.”
So, when Archuleta headlines Abravanel Hall during his “My Kind of Christmas” tour, suffice to say that song will not be on the set list.
