American Idol Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta shocked the pop music community earlier this week when he announced that he plans to take a break from pursuing his music career and become a full-time missionary for two years.
Yeah, we didn’t see this one coming either.
Sources report that the 20-year-old broke the news to audience members during his “My Kind of Christmas” concert in his hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah last night.
It’s not because someone 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…
According to concert-goers, when the audience broke into uproarious applause after his announcement, the AI alum was overcome with emotion and added,
It’s the same feeling that I’ve always tried to follow in my life. It’s the feeling that’s allowed me to have the opportunities I’ve had, the challenges I’ve had to overcome, and the blessings, too…
I’ve learned that to trust that feeling. I’m aware that I need to answer when He calls, and that’s the reason that I know I need to do this in my life.
David will join forces with the Church of Latter-day Saints for his two-year stint as a missionary and we wish him the very best of luck!
Watch the video of David’s heartfelt announcement below…

The 20 year-old singer’s 2010 album sold only 67,000 copies, which is totally shameful when compared with his self-titled 2008 debut album. “David Archuleta” went platinum with more than a million copies sold.
David tweeted, “Hey guys, just want to let you know you fans are awesome haha. Just want to let you know I am excited for the opportunities ahead Thanks for the support you continue to show! Means a lot. Just wanted to check in let you know things are going where I feel they should.”
David is such a talented kid. We wish him the best and hope he can quickly snag a fantastic record deal. Go David! We, Idol fans, LOVE you!
