American Idol Runner-Up David Archuleta is Becoming a Missionary
It was Season 7 of American Idol that introduced us to David Archuleta. Then the battle went on and came down to David and David in the finals of American Idol that season. David Cook took home the prize and David Archuleta came in second. Although he has been keeping up with his music, he made a huge announcement at his concert in Salt Lake City, Utah on Monday night. He announced that he is becoming a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
"I have chosen to serve a full-time mission for Jesus Christ and his Latter Day Saints," Archuleta told his fans.
"It's not because someone told me I was supposed to do it, not because I no longer want to do music anymore, but it's the feeling I need to do next in my life."
