"It's not because someone told me that I'm supposed to do it, and not because I no longer want to do music, but because it's the feeling that I've felt I need to do this with my life."

I have a problem believing that..

"...it's the feeling that I've felt I need to do this with my life"

Ever since he first sang, "I Hope They Call Me On A Mission" in Primary.

Cult brainwashing in action.

It's a FEELING...not a rational decision, not a decision at all. It's not about an individual or his career or education--it's all about the cult.

The cult will exploit this little guy all his life, like they use everyone with talent. They exploited Elizabeth Smart. They use Gladys Knight to help recruit new members.

I thought this was the saddest part: "A video of the concert on Archuleta's website shows him crying as he tells the crowd about his plans."
