Mckenzie did an awesome job highlighting David’s accomplishments during his first year away on his mission. She does a great job of promoting David. I saw this tweet and was blown away by this amazing labor of love.
Uploading my 30 min vid of career highlights of
@DavidArchie March 2012-March 2013 tonight, “Popstar on A Mission”. Check it out @kariontour
On March 28, 2012, American Idol star and Platinum recording artist David Archuleta left on a 2 year Mormon mission.
In his absence, David’s team has successfully managed to keep his music career thriving by regularly releasing projects prepared before he left and by effectively harnessing the power of modern technology and social media to fully engage with fans around the work and to enlist their aid in keeping his name prominently in the public eye.
What David Archuleta and his team have accomplished this past year is something even fans doubted could be done. To an outsider looking in, David seems busier than ever before and certainly more busy than some artists actively pursuing their music careers. This is a testament to his incredible preparation before leaving, a marketing strategy effectively tailored to promote an artist not available to promote his work, and the undying support of one of the most committed fanbases in the world.
This video is a record of the remarkable and unprecedented year in David Archuleta’s career AFTER he left on his mission. Here are the highlights of what David and his team accomplished:

Earned 1 Gold CD
Earned a #28 Debut on Billboard 200 (His 4th Top 30 CD)
