David Archuleta made a huge announcement last night during his concert in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The 20-year-old singer shared with the packed crowd that he’s putting his music career on hold for a mission!
“I would like to make a special announcement: that I’ve chosen to serve a full-time mission,” David shared. “It’s not because somebody told me that I was supposed to do it, not because I no longer want to do music anymore, but it’s because it’s the feeling that I felt that I need to do next in my life.”
He added, “It’s just the same feeling that I’ve always followed, tried to follow in my life. It’s the feeling that has allowed me to have the opportunities that I’ve had, the challenges that I’ve overcome and the blessings, too. And I’ve learned to trust that feeling, and I’ve learned that I need to answer when it calls. And that is the reason why I know I need to do this in my life.”
David will serve on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for two years and could be sent anywhere in the world to spread the word of god while helping those less fortunate.
We are SO proud of David and wish him lots of luck! We cant wait for you to be home though!
