The Passion of the David Archuleta
Settle down, Lamanites and Nephites. American Idol alum David Archuleta has an important announcement, brought to you by the fine folks at Celestial Kingdom, Inc.
During a concert Monday night at Salt Lake City’s Abravanel Hall, the 20-year-old season 7 runner-up announced that he will put his music career on hold in order to serve a two-year Mormon mission, reports the Deseret News.
"I've chosen to serve a full-time mission," Archuleta said. "It's not because someone told me that I'm supposed to do it, and not because I no longer want to do music, but because it’s the feeling that I've felt I need to do this with my life.
"It's the same feeling that I've always tried to follow in my life— the feeling that's allowed me to have the opportunities I've had, the challenges and the blessings, too. And I've learned to trust that feeling and answer when it calls," said the boy who can sing.
As you probably already know, Archuleta shot down gay rumors back in 2010 after he was spotted at New York City’s Club 57, which The David Chronicles called “the city’s hottest, wildest Saturday night party for the men-who-love-men crowd.” In any case, don’t believe anything you read if it's not printed on Golden Plates.
