David Archuleta Taking Break From Music for Two Year Mormon Mission

American Idol Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta made a huge announcement in Salt Lake City on Monday night: He will be taking a break from music to go on a full-time Mormon mission. David told the crowd he’s not abandoning his singing career, but he feels a spiritual call to action.

David explains the feeling: “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. That’s the reason why I know I have to do this in my life.”
