Here’s a story about a sacrifice so great, it belongs in The Good Book.
Emerging pop star and ex-American Idol season seven runner-up, David Archuleta, will put his career on hold as he goes on a two year Mormon mission.
The singer will be sent abroad, or somewhere in the States, to fully embrace his faith. This includes doing things like studying and teaching others about Mormonism. He will have very little contact with family and friends.

And it’s all in our list of musicians who went rogue for religion. Check it out!
