It’s mission accomplished for David Archuleta…
The 23-year-old Honduran/Spanish American singer and former American Idol runner-up has returned home to Utah from his two-year Mormon mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Archuleta, who competed during the seventh season of Fox’s hit singing competition, announced his homecoming in a YouTube video, to the delight of Archie fans around the world.
“I’m home,” said a giddy Archuleta wearing the traditional missionary attire of a suit jacket, white dress shirt and tie.
While in the Missionary Training Center, Archuleta performed in a Mormon choir for its general conference. He also gave two special Christmas performances that were held on the Santiago Chile Temple grounds. During that time, he had little contact with his family or the outside world.
