Disappointing fans during a show, David Archuleta broke down in tears and announced he is taking a break from music.
Performing in his home state of Utah, the American Idol runner up emotionally told the crowd that he would be taking two-years off from his music career to fulfill a full-time mission with the Mormon Church! Explaining that “It's not because somebody told me that I was supposed to do it, not because that 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 the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, most Mormon missionaries are about 20 years old (David turns 21 on Dec. 28). The missions are not required, and missionaries pay their own expenses.
Do you think the 20 year old will be able to make a comeback after the two years? Share your thoughts in the comments!
