David Archuleta Talks New Music, Children's Book & Bravely Coming Out

We all still have a crush on David Archuleta!

Fans of David Archuleta had their hearts shattered when he came in second place during season seven of American Idol.

But, his loss didn't keep him from becoming a star! The singer has released nine albums and a plethora of singles, including his biggest hit, "Crush."

"It's just fun when people reconnect to that moment in 2008 with American Idol, or with Hannah Montana or iCarly or "Crush." To bring people's youth back to them just with that throwback or nostalgia is super fun," Archuleta said.

David is now busier than ever, by releasing his latest single "Movin'" and announcing his rescheduled tour dates for the "Ok, All Right Tour" kicking off in 2022.

"For me, it's all about going out of my comfort zone right now. This year, I wanted to just have fun. That's why I like "Movin'." Let's just freshen it up!"

The musician is also using his writing skills in his first children's book, My Little Prayer, which is all about the power of faith, friendship and prayer.

"I feel like I've never been this excited about a project as a children's book. It's basically to show people how to have a conversation with something higher than us."

On top of all of his amazing projects, David made headlines for bravely coming out and announcing his fluid sexuality. Coming from a religious background, the star is hoping his story will inspire others to embrace their true selves.

"We just need to be more willing to talk openly about all this and that sexuality is not always... "this." It's not always going to look "this" way."

You can stream "Movin'" now and get David's children's book, My Little Prayer, out this fall.
