David Archuleta couldn’t contain his emotions when he announced at his concert Dec. 19 he’s decided to go on a two year Mormon mission

David Archuleta is currently on his My Kind of Christmas Tour and wanted to wait until he was in his home town of Salt Lake City, Utah to make a very important announcement to his fans. The 20-year-old American Idol runner up revealed he has decided to go on his Mormon mission.

“I’ve chosen to serve a full-time mission,” he told the crowd Dec. 19. The audience erupted into cheers and even gave him a standing ovation, leading him to break down and cry.

“It’s not because someone told me I was supposed to do it and not because I no longer want to do music anymore,” he explained. “It’s because it’s what I feel I need to do next in my life. It’s the same feeling that I’ve always tried to follow in my life.”

Although it’s not clear where David will be serving his term, he’ll follow a very strict regiment through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We commend David for following his heart and wish him nothing but the best!
