American Idol alum, David Archuleta, announced to a hometown crowd tonight in Salt Lake City that he’s  decided to go on a full-time LDS mission.  The crowd cheered as David cried.

A Mormon mission is typically a two year commitment.  That would mean David would disappear from show business for awhile while he serves.

David is wrapping up his “My Kind of Christmas Tour”. The last date will be December 21st in Beaver Creek, CO.

David says he’ll embark on his mission the first half of 2012. There are no details yet on where he’ll serve. 

However David decides to follow his heart, good luck to him.
