David Archuleta has come clean about his sexuality in a note to fans on Instagram.

According to his June 21 post, the singer addresses the tension between his sexual orientation and his religious beliefs.

“I like to keep to myself but also thought this was important to share because I know so many other people from religious upbringings feel the same way,” David wrote. “I've been open to myself and my close family for some years now that I am not sure about my own sexuality.”



“I just invite you to please consider making room to be more understanding and compassionate to those who are LGBTQIA+, and those who are a part of that community and trying to find that balance with their faith which also is a huge part of their identity like myself,” he added.

David continued, “I think we can do better as people of faith and Christians, including Latter-day Saints, to listen more to the wrestle between being LGBTQIA+ and a person of faith... I don't think it should come down to feeling you have to accept one or the other.

“For me to find peace the reality has been to accept both are real things I experience and make who I am... You can be part of the LGBTQIA+ community and still believe in God and His gospel plan.”



David’s success on the seventh season of “American Idol” led to him becoming well known internationally.

He was twelve when he won the Junior Vocal Champion award in the second season of “Star Search.”

David released “Crush,” his first single, in August 2008. Upon release three months later, his album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200.
