David Archuleta on Anne Curtis's concert: "It was really fun. What I respected most about Anne is, she told the audience to follow your dreams. She's open about not being a good singer, but she still said, 'You know, I can do this.' I like the message she sent to the people. I think that's something. People should dream more and do more."

Aminado si David Archuleta na nangangamba siya sa maaaring mangyari sa kanyang career matapos niyang magdesisyon na iwan pansamantala ang pag-awit.

Dalawang taon magsasagawa ng religious mission si David para sa Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, kung saan siya'y miyembro.

Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at ilang entertainment press si David kagabi, Pebrero 4, sa press launch ng Nandito Ako na ginanap sa Meralco Fitness Center Multi-Purpose Hall, Meralco Compound, Pasig City.

May takot man, matagal daw itong pinag-isipan ni David bago nagdesisyon na isantabi ang kanyang career para sa kanyang religious mission.

"It's always a scary thing because you don't know what's gonna happen," banggit ng batang mang-aawit.

"It's a decision, it's like American Idol. It's not the same degree in the people's eyes.

"I don't know what's gonna happen.

"I'm in a job that I love, it's hard to find a job.

"I just found a job and it's hard to let go, school, and the comfort of home.

"It has been a hard decision to make, it was a decision that took a couple of years to make...

"But, it's scary, it's a scary thing to do but I know it's gonna be worth it because I've learned to trust that feeling in my life..."

Gayunman, ayon sa artikulong lumabas dito sa PEP noong Enero 14, sinabi ni David na magre-record muna siya ng isang album pagbalik niya sa Amerika.

Gusto niyang may maiwan sa kanyang fans habang nasa isang religious mission siya.

Aniya, "Once I get back to the States, I'm gonna spend as much time as I can to record.

"So even though I won't be here, hopefully, I will still be here, you know, releasing new songs.
