It’s now official. Here’s a picture of American Idol international sensation David Archuleta singing at General Conference. He is now Elder Archuleta!!!
I want to break out into song: I beleeeeeve! That god lives on a planet called Kolob! I believe that Jesus has his own planet as well. And I believe! That the Garden Eden was in Jackson County Missouri!

Hello, my name is Elder Archuleta and I would like to share with you the most amazing book. It has so many awesome parts, you simply won't believe how much this book can change your life.
How special and uber creepy... I don't see their feet. Are they wearing Nikes drenched in Kool Aid?
He looks happy and content. If this is what he really wants then so be it. Rickey - I know where you're coming from but let's try to at least let other people believe in what they believe as long as they do not impose it on others. A little respect, maybe? I know his church is against what we are, but that's their problem.
Awwwww, my sweet David looks adorable as always. I will miss him so much, it makes me sick to think he'll be gone for 2 whole years. Does anyone else think the others in the choir look kind of like they're hypnotized, in some kind of robotic trance? Creepy. Not David of course - he looks like his usual sweet, earnest self. I only hope this is truly what he wants and not something his family pressured him into doing. As long as he's happy, that's the most important thing. <3
It was such an unexpected treat to be able to see David sing one more time :)
Two more good photos here by Salt Lake Tribune - scroll down to the block of photos on left and the right corner one and the one above it have David in them - nice shots. http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/53830015-78/church-apostle-faith-lds.html.csp
Don't get snarky with my favorite idol Rickey! lols Hey I believed in aliens before, does that count? It's all good, as long as David is happy, I'm happy. :)
I think he looks great in his missionary haircut. Not buzzed like i was afraid of. And he looks so cute and happy. :)
oh nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo... they even forced an elder haircut on him too...
Awwww...he looks so handsome in his suit. Gonna miss him soooooooo much, is it 2 years yet? :(
It's been funny reading blogs/tweets from other elders and sisters at MTC. The girls love him of course. :)

@jeffreychrist He can't help but buy into the insanity of religious mythology; another victim of parental & 'mormon cultural' imprinting.
@JulieBarbara Something I read sounds like being in this choir required getting up even earlier than usual, while it was still dark, to practice. David came in on the last couple of days of practice and he's also used to singing to an audience, even an audience of 21,000 like this one because he sang there before as a kid and again in 2010 as soloist with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Some look tired but I think they look fine for a serious and regimented choir at a church government event. It's not a Christmas concert.
