David Archuleta Says (Not) Goodbye to Fans

by at . Comments

THG's second favorite Mormon is saying goodbye.

Or not goodbye, based on the title David Archuleta has given his latest video blog.

But the former American Idol runner-up is headed off on a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at an undisclosed country and won't be around for a very long awhile to update fans on his life or career.

"It's been a very emotional last week," David says below. "It's a decision everyone knows about but it's a very personal thing and I wanted to keep it that way. So I hope you guys respect that, and you guys have so I appreciate that."

Best of luck, Archie.

Second favorite Mormon? Sorry Julianne and Derek Hough may be prettier Mormons but no way I like them more than Archie!

I admire David for following his heart, and for working so hard before he left to record music for his fans to be released while he's gone. I ordered his new album "Forevermore" from Amazon and love what I've heard so far, beautiful melodies and that signature voice of his.

I love David's voice and he's such a kind and humble person. And he cares about his fans. He worked extra hard the last 10 weeks to make stuff to leave for fans - he was filmed in the 5-week Philippines miniseries Nandito Ako as leading man (subtitled DVDs are in the works), a classic Philippines album Forevermore (shipping now and music video real soon), and a US album of classic or inspirational songs that he finished up the day before he left. Plus some new photoshoots. He did all of that and more in 10 weeks. Gonna miss him a lot. BTW his twitter is DavidArchie and his manager Kari will post any messages from David there. #DA2014 I'll Be Here
