David Archuleta Joins Philippines TV Show


David Archuleta will return to Philippines to film a TV series for local network TV5. The primetime series will star Kapatid stars Jasmin Curtis-Smith & Eula Caballero: ‘The signing of Archuleta is seen to further boost the attempts of TV5, currently the third biggest broadcasting network in the Philippines to climb..

..up the rankings: ‘The signing of an international star of Archuleta’s youth and talent, arguably in his prime, is bound to shake up the Philippine entertainment industry.’ David previously announced that he’s leaving the music industry for two years ‘to serve a fulltime mission for the Church of Jesus Christ..

..of the Latter-day Saints: It’s not because someone told me that I’m supposed to do it, not because I no longer want to do music anymore, but it’s because of the feeling that I felt that I need to do next in my life. It’s just the same feeling that I’ve always followed, try to follow in my life.

    Well, I officially call this guy a hypocrite lol. Or was this a calling/following, too…although unless this is coming in a WHILE, then okay.

    No hypocrisy. He had time before going on the mission and is spending the time filming this series. He said in his vlog that when he comes back to the US, he’ll be doing some more recording and making a few more appearances. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0_gAsOWxzw
